Rugby returns to Collingwood

Crouch, touch, pause, engage: Nelson in the blue jerseys go head to head with Collingwood’s black and gold. Photo: Jo Richards. JO RICHARDS

Collingwood Rugby Club finally started its 2020 campaign last weekend - around three months late. The lengthy postponement, a result of the Covid lockdown, had heightened the anticipation of players and spectators for Saturday’s Division 2 clash with old rivals Nelson. Those who came to Collingwood’s home ground were not disappointed as they enjoyed an intense, noisy, and at times, spirited affair. Collingwood back Liam Miller had the honour of kicking off – and was straight into the action along with both sets of players who were soon going full tilt at each other. In the early exchanges, Nelson appeared to have the edge in the scrum, but the home side were more effective in the lineout. The blue jerseys of Nelson were quick to pile on the pressure, but the Black and Gold held firm before turning defence into attack with a penetrating move involving Miller and Ryan McKay which yielded the first try of the game for Steve Strange aka “Captain Stiffy”.

sent the conversion through the sticks giving his side a 7-0 lead with around 15 minutes on the clock. For the remainder of the first half, Collingwood endured long periods without the ball, but although Nelson kept pushing and probing, they were unable to break through a resolute home defence and headed to the sheds looking somewhat frustrated. As the match got underway for the second half, the visitors were clearly fired up, showing a renewed intensity, and upping the volume and frequency of their “Go to war” battle cry. But it was proving to be all noise as Collingwood snuffed out wave after wave of attacks. After soaking up the pressure for several minutes, McKay relieved it in the best possible way by driving forward and passing the ball out to his skipper who took it over the try line. Miller duly converted and left the visitors staring at a 14-point deficit. A few minutes later things got worse for the Blues when Collingwood registered a further five-pointer. Soon afterwards, Nelson’s

frustration, which had been slowly simmering, boiled over into a minor scuffle but it ended almost as soon as it had begun, and both teams went back to fighting for the ball. The incident seemed to energise the visitors who mounted a prolonged and desperate attack, pushing for a score, recycling the ball and making slow but steady progress. But as the Nelson forwards closed in on the try line, Collingwood threw everything in their way in an impressive display of last-ditch defending. When the home side were awarded a penalty for an infringement, the body language and faces of the opposition told the story; they could sense defeat; their energy was spent, and their fighting spirit all but crushed. After Collingwood cleared the danger with a kick to touch, opposition cries of “Go to war” were half-hearted at best; now the downcast army in blue looked like they just wanted to go home. But there was plenty of rugby left to play, and in the final few minutes of the match,... Continued on page 9

Local Board consultation JO RICHARDS

The long-awaited public consultation on the option for a Golden Bay local board begins next week. If established, a local board would replace the existing community board. Prior to the coronavirus crisis, the Local Government Commission (LGC) planned to begin its consultation process in April, with completion of submissions and hearings expected by June, and a final decision made by September. The Commission has now incorporated its amended timetable into a revised investigation process document, and is due to publish an official consultation document on its website on Monday 6 July. On the same day, copies of the consultation document will be delivered to mailboxes across the Tasman District. The consultation period runs from Monday 6 July until Friday 14 August and will include public meetings to be held in Takaka and Collingwood on 16 and 17 July. After the Commission has discharged its subsequent obligations under Schedule 3 of the Local Government Act 2002, a final decision can be expected later in the year. It’s already been a lengthy process; in 2018, based on a petition by 700 locals, the Golden Bay Local Board Working Group (GBLBWG) applied to the LGC to investigate replacing the community board with a local board. The community board currently makes recommendations on local issues, but all decisions are made regionally by Tasman District Council. A local board, however, would allow all non-regulatory, and some regulatory local issues, to be decided by locals elected from the Golden Bay community. Last year, the LGC deemed GBLBWG’s application warranted investigation, and subsequently specified how it would carry it out in its investigation process document. The soon-to-be-released consultation document will outline the option of a Golden Bay local board in some detail, setting out what a local board is compared to a community board, what it could do, and the likely cost implications. The consultation is part of the LGC’s commitment to ensure the community is actively involved through submissions and hearings, as well as providing the opportunity for other key stakeholders from the district, including council and iwi, to have an input.

Every Monday, a group of nine children ranging from eight to 13 years old meets at Lisa Bodley’s home in Parapara to undertake educational science projects. Science Club began early this year, inspired by Lisa’s son, Ari, who is interested in “science stuff”. From online research Lisa discovered EPro 8 Challenge, which is an interschool science and technology competition. Together the homeschool parents contributed towards the purchase of an EPro Kit which contains over 450 parts, access to online classroom resources, tutorials and online electronics. Lisa explained that she has adapted the programme. “It’s really set up for schools. I use the programme as a guide, but I prefer to follow the children’s place and interest and give them opportunities to struggle through challenges together.” This, she says, has made for a far more harmonious, co-operative approach among the children. The group may attend the competition in September, but Lisa values the process itself rather than its competitive possibilities. At a cost of $690, the kit is akin to a giant Lego set, with 60 lengths of aluminium, wheels, pulleys, axles, large and small gears, tools, joiners, rope, bolts, wing nuts and reels. The children love the challenges Lisa sets them and eagerly set to

work in their assigned groups. Last Monday, Ari, Isaac, Sophia and Freya were assigned the task of building a house for the Bodley’s four-month old Labrador pup. It had to be the right size, include a roof, and a “dog flap” door. The older children, Lucas, Cora and Levi, were challenged to build a fire engine, complete with an “up and down” moveable ladder. Asked what they like about their Science Club, the children responded: “I love how you can be creative.” (Ari) “Because it’s easy to build.” (Levi) “You can be creative and make lots of amazing things.” (Freya) “Because we all get together and do stuff.” (Sophia) “I like that it’s creative - and the EPro 8 Challenge.” (Isaac) “I enjoy working in teams and collaborating with other people.” (Lucas) “I like coming to Science Club to hang out with my friends………. And do EPro 8.” (Cora) “They are all very motivated kids,” says Lisa. “As it’s evolving they are taking ownership of how the session flows, and with that, becoming even more focused.”

THE GB WEEKLY, FRIDAY 3 JULY 2020


Destination Collingwood launched

Sans Souci Restaurant closed

After 26 years in business Sans Souci Restaurant has closed its doors. It’s been an abrupt closure just before lockdown and we have decided not to reopen. It’s time for us to enjoy more leisure time and explore our fantastic Golden Bay backyard. It’s been an awesome journey that would not have been possible without our wonderful staff and the support of the Golden Bay community. It’s been a great lifestyle with a nice working environment and we are especially grateful to our excellent, dedicated and hard working staff. A heartfelt thank you goes to all our wonderful loyal customers who have put up with our unusual set-up and way of doing things and have supported us over so many years. We could not have wished for a better clientele. You are amazing! The highlight of running Sans Souci has been the lovely people we met along the way. We are looking forward to seeing you around! Collingwood businesses are banding together to promote the western side of Golden Bay. Photo: Jo Richards. RONNIE SHORT

Collingwood businesses are banding together to promote the west side of Golden Bay and all it has to offer. It is an idea that’s been around for some time, but business owners have been galvanised into action by the closure of the international tourism market. Representative Anton Donaldson said: “Collingwood’s got so much to offer and it would be good to see it as a destination rather than a drive-through. We need to be pushing this as a place to come, to experience and explore.” He says there is so much to be found west of Takaka, and points out that visitors can spend days exploring everything from fishing, to caving, hiking, swimming and so much more. From Bainham to the start of the Heaphy Track, Salisbury River, Kaituna bushwalks and tracks, through Rockville’s Devil’s Boots, the Aorere Goldfields and Ballroom caves. Further west options include Pakawau, Puponga, Kaihoka Lakes, Mangarakau, Paturau, Anatori and Kahurangi, each providing a multitude of experiences. By canvassing local tourists, Anton has learned that visitors are often amazed at how much more there is to see in and beyond Collingwood. Popular spots include Wharariki Beach, (which has a mention in the Lonely Planet’s guide to the Top 100 places to visit) and the famous Farewell Spit. The west coast also offers stunning sunsets, and the shores, rivers, wetlands and estuaries are rich with birdlife such as spoonbills, bitterns, herons, godwits, shags, black-billed gulls and more. Kaihoka

THE GB WEEKLY, FRIDAY 3 JULY 2020

Lakes, perfect for picnicking and kayaking, are another lesser known attraction. Anton says the active outdoor pursuits on offer include—but are not limited to—caving, tramping, surfing, fishing, boating, mountain-biking, kayaking and kitesurfing. Then for history buffs, the area’s past is retold at the Rockville museum, Langford Store and Collingwood’s own museum. Artists and artisans offer galleries to visit and treasures to buy throughout the region, which is interlaced with cafés. Collingwood township itself offers all of the above, plus a selection of licensed eateries and a variety of accommodation options. Iconic Kiwi campgrounds offer an experience for campers, motor-homers or cabin-dwellers at Tukurua, Collingwood and Pakawau. And there are motels, backpackers and AirBnBs. New businesses are welcome to join the promotion and become part of Destination Collingwood. “There is a lot of motivation behind it,” says Anton. “We are recruiting. We want new members, especially those with diverse and different things on offer.” Unable to say too much at this time, Anton alluded to the prospect of new businesses “that are going to pop up” using this new initiative as a springboard. Quoting the old 1980s NZ Tourism advertisement on television, Anton reminds New Zealanders: “Don’t leave town till you’ve seen the country.” Find Destination Collingwood on Facebook and Instagram.

POLICE REPORT Re-thinking fences

Kia ora whanau, I want to hopefully allay anyone’s fears around the proposed installation of CCTV cameras in the Takaka township. It is no secret, we are hoping to have approximately 20 cameras installed at various significant locations around the town, including inside and outside the Police Station. Other sites we would like to have covered are: The Rec Centre, top town carpark, freedom camping carpark behind the Wholemeal, ANZAC memorial area, the playground and skate park. Sensible areas covering valuable community assets and areas where people congregate. Off the top of my head I can think of over 18 CCTV cameras already operating on the outside of various commercial buildings around the CBD. Whilst this is great, for police to access the images, we have to go to each site, sit in their offices and navigate their various methods of recording. This is hugely time consuming and evidentially limited. CCTV cameras are a proven crime prevention tool. Motueka saw their High Street disorder and wilful damage reduce to almost zero after installing cameras about 10 years ago. Whilst we love our Golden Bay bubble – it is not immune, and frankly, quite vulnerable to criminal activity. We are one of the last towns to take this sensible step. The cameras’ images (which do not have face recognition software – I thought that was just in the movies!) will be beamed securely back to the Takaka Police Station where they will be accessible and held for a few months before being recorded over. If you have reservations, think of it like airbags in a car, or road barriers – they are installed for your safety and wellbeing, without your explicit consent or knowledge, and you will hopefully never need them….but if you do, you will be chuffed they were there. • 15 June: A 48-year-old Nelson female was issued a warning for careless driving following a single car, serious crash on SH60 near Collingwood. She and her passenger were saved serious injury by the car’s airbags. • 24 June: A 42-year-old local female was arrested and charged with driving dangerously, resisting police, assault, and escaping custody when she ran off wearing Dean’s handcuffs. She appears in the Nelson District Court on 16 July. • 26 June: A 30-year-old local male was arrested for drink driving. Because of his high reading his licence was immediately suspended for 28 days and he has been summoned to appear in the Nelson District Court on 23 July. • A Samsung cellphone with a blue plastic protection case has been handed in as found property. It might belong to a Cody Smith, if anyone knows anyone by that name. • We are getting an increasing number of complaints relating to poaching. Get permission/permits before you get found hunting unlawfully on private or public land. We will take your licence and your firearms if we catch you. • A number of youths have been seen accessing GBHS grounds in the middle of the night. This is not OK. A few cameras would probably put a stop to that silliness as well. • A 16-year-old has had his multi-tool knife confiscated after taking it to the skate park and showing it to other youths.

As someone who walks regularly around my neighbourhood of Takaka, over the last four or five years I’ve noticed high fences becoming a trend, rather than the exception, especially in the last couple of years. This is a matter of personal choice but while this may give privacy to the property owners it also gives privacy to those who might access property for the wrong reasons. This trend contrasts strongly with the attitude of Australian David Engwicht who was employed by Nelson City Council to assist Nelsonians to renovate the toilet block in the Buxton carpark which is now much more attractive and creatively decorative. Google him. Back home in his suburb he has taken down the fence at the front of his property, put in plantings, winding paths, and seats in the shade to encourage others to come through to enjoy the space. This is the family that in the past made a point of setting up the table for the evening meal by the boundary so that they would get to chat while dining and get to know neighbours and the passersby. He’s a great believer in making neighbourhoods welcoming rather than adding just another brick in the wall. We won’t all have his attitude but I do hope we don’t become too estranged rather than friendlier as a result of all the recent carpentry. Karen Brookes

Takaka in Winter

Stomachs sprawled and covered in mud, Takaka cows, idly chewing their cud. Pukekos picking their way through the bog; Exuberant barks from a free-ranging dog prancing through puddles, muddy spray flying, startling the sheep; seabirds sent crying into the grey misty haze of the Bay, while another dark squall blows over this way. Robin Keown

Council underspend not a success

TDC is to repay nearly $28,000 in unspent freedom camping funds to the NZ Government (GBW 26/6). Despite a reduction in complaints and infringement, over a quarter of its total expenditure was spent on enforcement and compliance in Golden Bay alone (50 per cent more than was spent in the whole of the rest of the district). Amazingly, council views its spending as a success. If its mission is to harass responsible freedom campers while failing to cater for their needs, then success is the word. Without much-needed change we can expect more reports of toilet waste being found around Waitapu Bridge in future, thanks to TDC giving its money back rather than using it to provide more toilets and water. Our unfortunate visitors will continue to share a single spartan long-drop in overcrowded conditions next to a dangerous river, whilst being kept awake half the night by inconsiderate drummers sat around illegal fires, and once finally asleep then re-awoken by the thunder of trucks and the sound of spiteful horns. Meanwhile, the TDC enforcement officers (who could be relieving their plight) sleep soundly in their beds, dreaming of another day moving people on from the wide empty spaces and unused toilet blocks of its reserves at excessive ratepayer expense. Our community remains restricted from access to river recreation. In the bigger picture, as the coronavirus clouds darken our economic climate, more and more New Zealanders (just like Rosie in the movie) will soon be asking “Where will my family sleep tonight?”. Steve Penny

Consultation essential on CCTV

In reply to Bruce Dooley (Letters, GBW 26/6), the subject of security cameras in Takaka resurfaced on the community board agenda at the last meeting quite independently of TDC, which to my knowledge has made no moves on security cameras in Takaka. I understand the previous board received concerns from local businesses about security. The current board has not so far been presented with any information to justify security cameras. So far as I am concerned, public debate and consultation on any proposal that might be put forward is essential. Celia Butler, TDC councillor

Local Board update

The Local Government Commission (LGC) have released an updated timetable for investigating our application for a Golden Bay Local Board (see advertisement on page 14 of this issue). The Golden Bay community now has a clear path for engagement with the LGC on upgrading our community board to a local board. It’s time to refresh yourself on the

issues. Please read the commission’s consultation document on how a GB local board could work (in your letterbox next Wednesday or available from www.lgc.govt.nz or our website from Monday) as well as other documents on our website, participate in the public meetings (16/17 July), and make an informed submission on the form of local government you see as the most appropriate for our community by 14 August. Documents available at www.gblocalboard.co.nz 1. LGC’s “GB Local Board Proposal” (how a local board could work for Golden Bay) available Monday 6 July; 2. GB Local Board Application (our application to the LGC); 3. Investigation Process (how the LGC will carry out their investigation); 4.

Grow your own - and sell it

I would like to extend an invitation to all under-20-year-olds of Golden Bay to sell freshly grown Golden Bay produce at the village market. This is to encourage more local produce while getting young people involved in our community to secure food resilience. Any fruit and veges can be sold as long as it is grown by you or your family. I am offering half-price stall fees. Contact me to book a site or if you have any questions, 027 256 0566. Grant Knowles

Justice and Julian Assange

A recent, rejected complaint, to Radio NZ has been upheld by the Broadcasting Standards Authority. However, in the court’s ruling no requirement was made on RNZ to rectify its defamatory broadcast in which Julian Assange was in effect branded as a rapist. I find it beyond belief that our national broadcaster can defame a person in the worst possible way and not wish to accept its mistake and make amends. Letters to both the Minister for Broadcasting and the Green Party spokesperson, have so far fallen on deaf ears. There remains two weeks left to appeal the decision to the High Court. Please contact me, ph 027 891 7728, or do your own investigation at BSA, if you wish to see this process progress. Jonathan Hearn

Plastic Free July

This month is another opportunity to bring focus to and monitor how much single use plastic [especially] features in our lives One effective way to do this is to save every piece of single use and non-recyclable plastic we generate during July and see how much we accumulate. Even if we don’t feel like making an effort to reduce our generation of this long-lasting and destructive pollutant, at least it raises awareness of how much we are responsible for. To be more proactive about this issue, we can write to producers of plastic packaged products, using the contact details on the package. So many products that were previously packaged in glass, cardboard, and paper now sport plastic packaging. Plastic is so cheap, light and freshness preserving, but disastrous in other ways. Alternative materials have their own environmental footprint, but we can so much better manage their negative impacts. Hess Williams

BOOK REVIEW: Sweet Sorrow

Think Ahead Anga Whakamua Study online now

REVIEW BY ELEANOR WILSON

David Nicholls, the best-selling author of One Day and Us, is also an award-winning screenwriter whose work includes adaptions of Great Expectations and Far from the Madding Crowd. He’s clearly not lost his touch; Sweet Sorrow, his latest novel, will absorb you from its first page to the very last. Charlie Lewis is a 16-year-old boy, about to leave school with little hope of worthwhile qualifications and no idea of a future career. His family life is chaotic. He lives with his father, a one-time musician and failed businessman, now out of work and depressed, for whom he feels a kind of resentful responsibility. His mother has taken his younger sister to live with her new partner and his children. Charlie feels aimless and abandoned. His life at school, however, with a group of friends, is lively, and reflects the typical teenage mix of inexperience, adopted worldliness and contempt for authority. The disco celebrating the end of their years at school is described with humour and insight and will certainly stir recognition in readers. The turning point in Charlie’s life comes when he meets Fran Fisher, a girl from the sixth form of a local independent school, a year or so older than him and somewhat “out of his league”. Through her he becomes involved with a project to put on a performance of Romeo and Juliet with a cast of local teenagers. Initially he is inclined to scoff at what he sees as a pretentious, “arty” business, involving young people who are more sophisticated and privileged than his own contemporaries at his comprehensive school. However, in spite of his mistrust of those who represent to him a kind of elite, he finds himself drawn into their company through his desire to get closer to Fran, with whom he rapidly falls in love. Now the stage is set for the realisation of the book’s sub-title: “One life-changing summer of love.” The theatre company, “Full Fathom Five”, is run by dedicated leaders Alina and Ivor who insist on total commitment from their young cast. Charlie finds himself selected for the part of Benvolio, Romeo’s friend. The bonus is that Fran offers to rehearse personally with him. Despite his earlier reluctance he finds himself beginning to enjoy the experience and to warm towards the other members of the cast. However, he keeps his growing involvement with the theatre group a secret from his schoolfriends because he knows they would be merciless in their derision of the whole enterprise. The theatre company members are vividly described with sympathy and humour, and we realised how important the whole enterprise is in building their confidence and giving them something worthwhile to work towards. Set alongside Charlie’s growing love for Fran is the story of his fractured family life and confused loyalties. The pain involved in dealing with the emotional demands of his separated parents and the gradual estrangement from his sister sometimes threatens to overwhelm him. Sweet Sorrow is a story about growing up, of the depth of feeling experienced as a teenager - intense joy, despair, changing relationships - told with humour and, above all, true sympathy. It is also ultimately a story of the strength of friendship and love, and the unlooked-for ways in which life can bring happiness. 6

Help create “Connection” art work RONNIE SHORT

A collaborative Community Art Project, spearheaded by Margy Meys and supported by Community Mental Health (CMH), is inviting the community to participate in creating an art installation. Connection will celebrate Golden Bay’s community connectivity and wellbeing, and every member of the Golden Bay community is invited to submit their own creative piece. Margy is employed by Mohua Social Services and CMH as facilitator of the Youth Sewing Project and the Creative Space Group. The idea for the project was born during lockdown, when she was working with her groups on a Zoom platform to provide support and creative inspiration. Word quickly spread and others wanted to be involved. Believing creativity is paramount to wellbeing and good mental health, Margy is passionate about creating space for people to become absorbed in something other than their personal worries. “It incites the imagination and calms the spirit,” says Margy. “It doesn’t have to be a piece of art; it could be making a nice meal or baking a cake. The act of creating something is good for our neurological pathways. If we can get lost in that process,” Margy notes, “when we get to that space, we are calm, focused and fully present.” Submissions are to be the same size and shape as a CD, using materials that are neither too delicate nor too heavy, sharp or awkward. Materials such as fabric, paper, cardboard and plastic are all accepted.

A messy magic adventure

The finished artworks will be collated into a larger piece and attached to fabric to form an eclectic collage. The finished wall hanging will be exhibited at this year’s Bay Art event in October and will then hang on the wall of the community centre. Up to three entries are allowed per person. The deadline is 3pm on Tuesday 15 September. Further information and entry forms are available from Margy mmeys@twm.org.nz

WHAKAARO: Local board SUBMITTED BY TONY LAWTON, GB LOCAL BOARD WORKING GROUP

In 2018, based on a petition by 700 locals, we applied to the Local Government Commission to replace our community board, which makes recommendations on local Golden Bay issues but with all decisions made regionally by TDC, with a local board, where all non-regulatory and some regulatory local issues are decided by locals elected from our community, ie the community actually affected by the decision. We believe community-level democracy can significantly improve our community’s wellbeing. Using freedom camping - a topical example, we illustrate why. Last week TDC staff announced council will give back part of the Government grant to mitigate the impacts of freedom camping (GBW 26/6), claiming there are “no major issues” (Nelson Mail 22/6). Yet the Golden Bay Community Board, representing widespread local opinion, recommended that our main freedom camping sites (Waitapu bridge and Taupata) be closed due to significant and unmitigated environmental and cultural issues. TDC declined the board’s request but, even though unused grant funds were available, have made little progress in providing the amenities required to mitigate the environmental impacts, nor in identifying more appropriate locations. A conundrum or simply a council applying regional policy without regard to its diverse communities? Facts and experience indicate the latter. TDC’s “remote” decision-making over our community’s local issues and unique requirements means that our community is not effectively represented by our locally-elected community board. A community board’s legislative purpose is to provide community-level democracy (at least in a limited fashion compared to a local board), and it is a “service” for which TDC ensure we bear the costs via a targeted rate. However, it is completely dependent on council’s discretionary delegations – which haven’t happened over the last 20 years. Golden Bay is the community in the Tasman district most affected by freedom camping, however, as for all Council policy, TDC’s freedom camping policy is set regionally

NEWS IN BRIEF

by councillors in Richmond, with operational decisions made by TDC’s Richmond staff. You do not have to be a political scientist to appreciate that this approach to local government policy is unlikely to deliver optimal outcomes for our remote, unique community. Under a Golden Bay Local Board, locally elected people would have sole responsibility for setting local government policy over many local issues, which TDC staff are obliged to implement. Decisions over how to spend a government grant to mitigate the costs of freedom camping in Golden Bay would be made by the board. The board would have the responsibility (and capability) to assess the local issues and derive a plan that delivers the optimal solution for our community’s long-term wellbeing. A plan the board can agree with the community, allocate council funds to, instruct TDC staff to implement and monitor their progress; a plan for which they are accountable to the Golden Bay community; a plan they and their community will live with. TDCs approach to freedom camping is symptomatic of many council decisions made regarding local Golden Bay issues that fail to respect our community’s unique cultural, environmental, economic and social characteristics. Over the 20 years of decision-making under the TDC plus community board model of local government the cumulative negative impact of this approach on our community’s wellbeing is certainly non-trivial. Over the next 20 years we will face significant challenges such as high volume/low value tourism, affordable housing, water quality, climate change/sea-level rise and achieving sustainable growth, whilst seeking to maintain the Bay’s special culture and environment. These challenges will require local government capability that only a functioning community-level democracy can deliver; not one that struggles to incorporate community-specific factors under a regional approach. Under New Zealand legislation, a local board is our community’s best option to do this. www.gblocalboard.co.nz

Weird fish encounter

JO RICHARDS

Collingwood Area School students had a close encounter of a weird kind on Pakawau beach last week. Breaking their bus journey to school, driver Bill Climo pulled over to allow all passengers to jump out and examine a strange looking creature – most probably a common sunfish - that had washed up on the sand. The species is the heaviest bony fish alive today, weighing around one tonne on average, but the biggest example ever caught weighed over two tonnes. The specimen discovered on Pakawau beach, while relatively small, was still an impressive sight.

Stream Care subsidy

SUBMITTED

Do you have riparian margins to plant? Project Mohua are excited to have received funding from the Cobb Mitigation Fund and Fonterra’s Sustainable Catchment Fund to revive the Stream Care initiative that has been run in the Bay under various models since 2005. Stream Care’s goal is to help towards creating healthy streams and eco-corridors throughout Golden Bay by providing landowners with access to subsidised native riparian plants. If you have riparian areas with an average five-metre fenced set-back and are keen to order 1000+ plants (smaller orders will be considered on a case-by-case basis) we would love to hear from you. Landowners will be responsible for preparing the planting site, planting and maintenance. Support will be provided through provision of best-practice guidelines and an initial site visit. Timing is quite tight for applications (by 17 July) as plants need to be pre-ordered so they can be grown and available for planting in 2021. Please contact Anna Reynolds, Project Mohua Coordinator at projectmohua@tet.org.nz for further information and an application form.

Golden Bay will celebrate Matariki 2020 with a beach bonfire, lanterns and a sing-song. It’s not what was originally envisaged by Golden Bay Arts Council, but plans to re-run last year’s spectacular Matariki Light Festival were cancelled when rules regarding public gatherings were still unclear. Despite the obvious disappointment, arts worker Tania Marsden is determined to keep the flame alive. “Last year we had ver y hear twarming feedback from our community - we all want to keep lighting up our town every winter.” And she says next Friday ’s celebration on Pohara beach is a great opportunity to strengthen the community through the arts. “We are, more than ever now, aware of this need for connection in our community. We still wanted to bring people together in an environment with lots of space.” She says the event will be relatively low key compared t o l a s t y e a r ’s d a z z l i n g extravaganza. “We’ll have a big bonfire near to the band rotunda end of the beach, a lantern walk, and singing around the fire. We’d like people to dress up, light up

It is a family friendly, no alcohol event.” For those who want to get into the Matariki spirit before the event, Tania says there is plenty to choose from. “We also have some workshops coming up at our community art building at 24 Commercial Street, thanks to support from Creative Communities Tasman. Bookings are essential – anyone interested should just email me.” The Matariki celebration is at Pohara beach on Friday 10 July (if raining or very windy postponed to Saturday 11 or Sunday 12 July) starting at 6pm.

Continued from page 1 ...Collingwood showed no mercy and chalked up two further tries, to take the final score to 31-0. It’s early days, but the refreshed and augmented Collingwood squad has the potential to go far in this season’s Nelson Bays competition. The young players who have returned from OEs cut short, combined with a trio from Takaka, plus the club’s stalwarts, make up an impressive squad of 28. Speaking immediately after the game, Collingwood coach Graeme Miller summarised his team’s performance. “We were

rusty in patches and survived without the ball for long phases in the first half, but we got possession and scored some good tries. Towards the end we wore them down.” Graeme is clearly happy that the season is underway. “It feels good to be starting.” But he says supporters won’t see action on the home ground for a few weeks. “Our next home game isn’t until the end of July - we asked for home games in August to suit the farmers.” Collingwood’s next game is against Waimea Old Boys at Jubilee Park, Richmond. Kick-off tomorrow at 1.15pm.

Golden Bay’s dark night sky is under threat from artificial lighting. Photo: Kane Hartill. ALISTAIR HUGHES

Golden Bay offers much in the way of natural beauty and attracts tourism from all over the world. But local amateur astronomer Paul Taylor believes that visitors might be missing out on one of our most spectacular sights — after the sun has gone down. “Astrotourism can attract travelers to New Zealand in order to see the night sky in a way that they normally can’t,” says Paul. “Eighty per cent of the world’s population now lives under light-polluted skies, and half of the world’s children grow up without ever seeing the Milky Way. In contrast, much of the Tasman District still offers night skies clear of artificial light.” Paul and Golden Bay’s University of the Third Age (U3A) astronomy group believe our spectacular night sky, with its wealth of notable objects making it the envy of Northern Hemisphere stargazers, is a resource well worth protecting. He recently oversaw the implementation of a dark sky programme in a rural community near Seattle, in the United States, and believes the same can be done here. “A lot of this is education, making the council and the community aware of lighting alternatives that can achieve both what is needed as well as maintain a dark sky.” Shielded lighting is an obvious example, ensuring that street lamps and domestic outdoor light sources shine downwards where the illumination is required, and not up into the sky to

wash out our view of the stars. A less understood factor is the spectrum of the LED bulbs used. “The blue-white spectrum of light imitates daylight,” Paul explains, “and unfortunately that’s what the replacement streetlight bulbs bought for this area are, because the TDC weren’t aware. You really want to be more in the warm-white/ yellowish spectrum which doesn’t reflect upwards to interrupt the night sky nearly as much.” Additionally, the American Medical Association has found that human sleep patterns, and the natural rhythms of wildlife, are significantly disrupted by daylight-imitating blue-toned LED illumination. “So we need people thinking about it as an overall goal. When they buy their own outdoor lighting, they can try to do it in a way that protects the night sky at the same time.” In New Zealand, Great Barrier Island, Tekapo and Stewart Island are recognised dark skies sanctuaries. Paul and the U3A astronomy group believe that Waikoropupū Springs could join that valued list. “It is a logical location and is currently completely dark. A beautiful area for star photography, and we could set an ordinance to prevent installation of bright up-facing lights to protect it. In Golden Bay the night sky is just phenomenal, and we want people to really enjoy that.”

Amendment to timetable for investigating Golden Bay local board application The Local Government Commission has previously released a document outlining the process it intended undertaking for the investigation into the application it had received for establishment of a Golden Bay local board. If adopted, the local board would replace the existing Golden Bay Community Board. The investigation process document included a timetable for public consultation and the subsequent steps the Commission must take, under Schedule 3 of the Local Government Act 2002, in making its decision on whether or not to proceed to a reorganisation plan. Because of the Covid-19 emergency, including lockdown period, the Commission was not able to carry out its planned consultation in the period identified. Accordingly, the Commission has amended its process document for the consultation period to run from Monday, 6 July 2020 until Friday, 14 August 2020. Copies of the Golden Bay local board investigation process document are available on the Commission’s website at www.lgc.govt.nz. In addition, the Commission’s consultation document will be available on its website from Monday, 6 July 2020 and will be delivered to mailboxes across Tasman District. Further information on the investigation process can be obtained from the Commission by: Phone: (04) 460 2228 Email: info@lgc.govt.nz Post: PO Box 5362, Wellington 6145 The relevant legislation can be accessed via the New Zealand government website www.legislation.govt.nz/browse.aspx It is likely that access to the online legislation may also be obtained through assistance from staff at local public libraries.
