Collingwood crowned champions

Collingwood were crowned Nelson Bays Division 2 champions last Saturday afternoon. Lifting the silver cup capped off a sensational run for the Black and Gold who have lost only one game all season. But they triumphed only by the narrowest of narrow margins in an extraordinary final that ended 3-3 after extra time. With no tries, no conversions, and only one penalty kick per side during a 100-minute marathon, the statistics suggest a dull-asditchwater game. It was anything but. The

Levity’s beats


set for a mouth-watering clash between the most potent attack and the meanest defence – the unstoppable force versus the immovable object. The match, postponed from the previous weekend because of widespread flooding, was eagerly anticipated, and spectators looking to secure a good vantage point, started to arrive well before kick-off. Arguably the best seat in the house was the VIP three-piece suite – a sofa and two bean-bags lashed onto the roof of the covered stand. Although the postponement had allowed

the playing surface to dry out, the going was still soft on the long grass deemed nonconducive to fast running rugby. No-one had told the players, however, who started the game at a furious pace and never let up. Impressive ball-handling, committed tackling, solid discipline and sheer hard work by both sides created an impasse that looked unlikely to be broken – until, 25 minutes into the game, when the visitors conceded a very kickable penalty and Collingwood happily took the 3 points.

large, vocal and naturally partisan crowd of around 600 couldn’t take their eyes of the intense gladiatorial contest for a second as the gold and red armies battled for every inch of Collingwood’s muddy field. It was to be expected. The finalists came into the match as the division’s best teams. Collingwood topped the round robin table amassing 44 points to the visitors’ 36 and, over the 10 fixtures, outscored them 327 to 250. On the other hand, runners-up Stoke conceded a total of only 124 points compared to Collingwood’s 138. And so the stage was

Levity Beet demonstrates his “racket jacket” at last week’s Mohua Events holiday programme for children. Photo: Ronnie Short. RONNIE SHORT

Children attending the Mohua Events holiday programme last week were treated to a session with renowned children’s music artist, Levity Beet. Levity was one of several guest artists who educated and entertained youngsters during the week-long programme, which was organised by Jennifer Jackson. Other activities included Lego building, science with “bubble lady” Diana Hickey, music, and a pyjama party day. The 16 children who attended Levity’s interactive session remained spellbound as he explained, played and sang, using all the components of his cleverly created musical instrument groupings, which he called “clusters”. Just prior to lockdown in 2020, Levity had an application approved by Creative New Zealand to create five instrument clusters and five songs. Securing the materials he required from local sources, Levity set about creating the clusters. Although challenges arose, he persevered until he found a solution. He subsequently toured the set around early childhood centres and schools in the South Island. “The live aspect of this recent body of work has been very satisfying to perform and worked out well in terms of generating money,” said Levity. “The developmental stage – where I dreamed up, designed and made the instruments –

was hugely rewarding.” A metal cluster comprised recycled cans and featured a “flexiglock” made from tuned sheet steel keys in a plywood box, which was played with drumsticks. Four gourds made up another cluster, each creating a unique sound when blown, scraped, shaken like a maraca, or beaten like a drum. The sounds represented native birds and even a dragonfly’s whirring wings. A water cluster featured glass bottles filled to different levels, and “cow bells” dipped in buckets of water. These were struck with beaters and hands to produce a variation of tones. An ingenious wearable “racket jacket” consisted of a lab coat adorned with whistles played using air pressure from physio ball pumps, along with aluminum chimes and a bamboo guiro (percussion instrument). As Levity played each instrument cluster, and sang a song, he was joined by the children, who clearly enjoyed the whole session, and were keen to have a go when invited to at the end. Levity said this was possibly his last show to feature his innovative creations, although he may yet perform at local centres and schools before deconstructing the five clusters into something more easily portable. Levity’s creations, including five songs featuring his instruments, can be viewed on YouTube.

SLC survey seeks community input SUBMITTED

The Golden Bay Sustainable Living Centre (SLC), formerly known as Golden Bay Community Gardens, wants more families to visit, and they’re asking the community for ideas. A survey asking two questions is running at Takaka Library for the first two weeks of August. Parent Jettie Skerten, one of the volunteers for this project, says: “My family and I love spending time at the SLC. We often start at the small playground at the front, meandering via the allotments to the back forest, te ngahare. It’s such a valuable and accessible space where our tamariki can be free to play and learn in nature. It would be great to see more families enjoy this space, hence asking our local community for ideas on how the SLC can be developed further to make it an even better community resource for families.” The two questions are: 1. What does your and your families’ ideal community garden look like? This includes spaces, infrastructure, equipment, elements etc 2. What kinds of organised activities would bring your family into the gardens? For example bushcraft, playgroup, outdoor movies etc 2

Respondents can fill out the survey via the Community Noticeboard on Facebook, or at the library from Monday, 2 August, 10am; or post your answers to: SLC, 24 Waitapu Road,Takaka, 7110. The survey closes at the end of August. Then the SLC team will develop a plan to action your ideas. THE GB WEEKLY, FRIDAY 30 JULY 2021

Filmmaker Rob Dawson sets his sights on a new horizon during the Tour Te Waipounamu in February. Photo: Supplied. ALISTAIR HUGHES

At the beginning of last year, acclaimed filmmaker and adventure cyclist Rob Dawson was set to embark upon an ambitious odyssey in Germany, bikepacking and filming the route of the former iron curtain. Unfortunately, the spread of Covid-19 began another kind of cold war, suddenly putting paid to any thoughts of international adventures. “I felt a little bit lost coming out of lockdown,” admits Rob. “But because I knew [mountainbiker and bikepacker] Brian Alder well, I got wind of his Tour Te Waipounamu project.” That project was a punishing bikepacking event that spanned the entire length of the South Island in February this year. Rob decided that he wouldn’t participate personally, but did know that he wanted to film the race as a documentary. Approaching Brian with this idea, he was met with the response: “Funnily enough, it had crossed my mind to ask you.” And so Rob’s latest documentary, South: The Tour Te Waipounamu Story was born. It is already award winning and screening to sold-out sessions in Wellington and Nelson. Being a bikepacker himself, Rob knew that exhausted competitors might not appreciate having a camera pushed into their faces at the end of a long, hard day, so he and Brian went to lengths to gain competitors’ agreement to participate first. This gives South a wonderful balance. It is not only a stunning travelogue of lesser-seen South Island landscapes and, at times, a breathtaking glimpse of superhuman endurance, but is also

full of very personal insights. “Seeing plenty of bikepacking films myself, I always wanted to know more about the competitors,” says Rob. “Coming up with some sort of narrative was my main consideration. I wanted find out something about their characters in interviews before the race and then follow up with them on the track.” Another wonderful personal element is cyclist Andrew Trevelyan’s little pieces to camera at the end of each day, affectionately dubbed the “Plodder’s Posts”. Rob found these invaluable. “You’re up with the front-runners and then you’re down in 27th place with Andrew settling for the night. It’s another little element that adds dimension.” Speaking of front-runners, the race winner finished up to four days earlier than some other competitors did. Rob was there to capture his triumph, though he wanted his documentary to be far more encompassing. “I didn’t want to finish with the first guy crossing the line, as is the case with a lot of films. I wanted to show that there were still people out on the course, the difference in personal levels, and what people got out of it.” Three-hundred hours of editing has resulted in an unmissable chronicle of endurance, natural splendour and very down-to-earth personalities. South will screen at the Village Theatre at 7.30pm on Thursday 5 August, with a Q & A session and exclusive extra content. Tickets are $15 from Soul.

LE T TERS Three Waters could liquidate dam

Like many people in our community I am wondering what local government will look like under the Three Waters reform. It was encouraging to read Councillor Chris Hill’s “Council Matters” (GBW 23/7), informing us that “there is now an opportunity to create something new, rather than focus on what we might have left and what that looks like.” One of the most controversial developments Tasman District Council has undertaken recently has been building the Waimea dam. Under the Three Waters reform, central government could take over the Waimea dam and, in doing so, remove the debt from TDC’s books. Now that’s a plus for ratepayers. Cynthia McConville


The right to scrutinise

At the community board meeting in Takaka on 13 July, via Zoom I was very critical of our two councillors. We elect our representatives from their profile statements and we expect them to honour them. If they fail I believe we must have the freedom of speech to criticise them. Councillors are accountable to us for their decisions and actions, not TDC. I have subsequently heard that our representatives may be seeking exemption from public scrutiny (Victoria Davis’ letter GBW, 23/7). Both our councillors are now sending all my private emails to TDC staff for scrutiny under the LGOMIA, for vetting and reply. If we lose the right to scrutinise the actions and decisions of the people we elect, who will? What is our future in local government? Who said “I may disagree with what you say, but I will fight for your right to say it“? [Abridged] Reg Turner

I’d like to thank Graham Drummond for saving the town from flooding yet again. I remember when he dug the huge water diversion on his property behind the Roots Bar and the council at the time were not very encouraging. We’ve had some big rain events since then and the town hasn’t flooded. On Saturday 17 July you could see the volume of water being diverted away from Commercial Street. So add that to the list of things he’s done for the community over the years. Thanks, Graham, you’re a legend. Matt Walker

Community consultation is essential to planning our way forwards. The Tasman Environment Plan (TEP) will replace existing regional environment plans. This is a fantastic opportunity to ensure things are done differently. Many of us want effective monitoring and compliance measures and to see stronger bottom lines for environmental protection. Now is the time to get involved and have your say. The extent to which the public are involved depends on the council’s perception of matters deemed to be significant or not. Such judgements are assessed through a criterion of importance, such as: decisions for a proposal or strategic asset, changes to the level of services provided by council. This includes any decision that impacts on the social, economic, environmental, or cultural well-being of the community in the present or for the future. The development of the TEP is a prime example of a local government process that meets this criterion. The new plan will provide guidance for council to administer its powers in ways that the public see as beneficial for the environment which surrounds and sustains us. As stated by TDC, ‘’Through quality policies, we can plan for sustainable development, build greater resilience in the face of a changing climate and natural hazards, enable livelihoods, turn around biodiversity loss, retain productive rural land, and protect and restore waterways’’. Many of us are deterred by long-winded bureaucratic processes and the frustrations of not feeling heard. To manage this symptom, it’s important to seek support and work collaboratively. Rod Barker, Marine Farming Impacts Group

Copyrighting culture

Last Thursday, 22 July, I painted graffiti over a public artwork outside the Art Vault in Takaka. It was a wilful act and I’m not sorry. I got permission from the gallery, it is my original artwork anyway, and I am amused the public art spot is called “sitting on a fence”. I basically destroyed the artwork with graffiti in order to illuminate a message for all our community to be aware of. On the same day there was a conference up in Auckland with many iwi and government bodies to revisit again the clause

Y262 in treaty negotiations. I’m talking about our founding partnership document, the Treaty of Waitangi. Our partnership includes us. Pakeha support for Maori. Y262 clause is about intellectual copyright over indigenous cultural flora and fauna and spritual identity. This includes us (Pakeha) born and raised here, and thank God Maori are standing up for their own, plus, in a way, it reflects on us Pakeha to support and stand up also. Did you know that Maori uncovered that our NZ authorities sold out kumara seed, totara plus many trees, bird and fish species to China and other countries? What do you feel about this? Maybe you don’t care and it’ s another Maori issue coming up. I wish Pakeha will stand beside our partner. They are showing us Pakeha how to stand up for our cultural identity as one.

All you ever wanted to know about weka

Weka have provoked an interesting correspondence recently, which prompted me to dig out my copy of Weka, opportunist and battler by Ralph Powlesland. Ralph is a respected ornithologist who for the last 10 years has been closely monitoring the resident weka population on and around Manaroa, the property in the Marlborough Sounds where he has retired with wife Mary. It’s a small book of 90 pages but packed with information. Everything you ever wanted to know about weka is there, in short chapters and accessible language. The text is complemented by stunning images by the book’s photographer Agnes Takacs, Ralph and others. I’m going to donate a copy to the Takaka library soon. I purchased mine from Fishpond for $29 but copies are also available from booksellers. Helen Kingston

Men’s yoga: bust myths, mend bods JO RICHARDS

We all know that exercise is good for us, but after a full day’s work, the prospect of lacing up the running shoes and pounding cold wet roads, is rather unappealing to say the least. But there are myriad other ways of keeping fit and healthy, and many in the Bay – women in particular – do it through yoga. Men it seems are less keen on the practice, despite its proven benefits. Maybe it’s because of a multitude of myths about yoga: that it doesn’t provide a proper workout; that it’s too touchy-feely; and you have to be super bendy to do it. Manager of Bay Yoga Education Trust Debora O’Callaghan is on a mission to debunk these myths with her introductory therapeutic yoga class designed exclusively for men. The instructor and massage therapist explains that the one-hour sessions, which run over four consecutive weeks, aim to develop better alignment and posture, addressing specific issues around lower back, hips and shoulders. “The focus of the programme is to create a balance between different muscle groups in the body,” says Debora. Concentrating on rejuvenating the body, not the soul, there’ll be little touchy-feely stuff going on, explains Debora. “It’s called yoga but it’s just the physical part. There’s no dogma, no beliefs, no religious faith attached.” She strongly believes prevention is better than cure and sees regular yoga as a way for men to challenge the stereotype and ward off unnecessary health problems. “It’s part of male culture to endure in silence and not take care until there is pain or injury.” Whether for tradie, farmer or office worker, Debora recommends a weekly dose of yoga to keep the man-bod in balance. “It’s very good for guys who are using their bodies for

Storm-tossed albatross takes flight after rest and recuperation JOYCE WYLLIE

How a beautiful albatross recently ended up on a gravel road near the Heaphy Track is not known, but it was most likely tired and disoriented from the storm. Fortunately the bird was picked up by a passing local. The rescuer was friendly but the bird was not, drawing blood with its long, sharp beak. Accommodation in a warm, empty chook house for a night was followed by a car ride to a farm nearer the coast. There it enjoyed a swim in a cow trough and a clumsy wander in the paddock before settling on a towel in a calf pen for a relaxed preen and rest. An attempt to feed it sardines with chain-mail glove-protected hands was noisily resisted. After more preening and resting came a surprise. It walked out on to the hill and stood enjoying the strong northerly “breeze”. Then it lifted off and was gone into the evening sun. Identified as a Buller’s mollymawk, a type of albatross or toroa, these birds are deemed “near threatened”, nest on the Chatham Islands, and live south of the Cook Strait.

Live Q & A with civil rights activist this Saturday evening SUBMITTED

Tomorrow’s screening of the movie Son of the South (see review GBW 23/7) at the Village Theatre will be followed by a very special event. Immediately after the credits have rolled, the cinema audience will be able to participate in a live Q & A session with the author of the autobiography Son of the South, and main character in the film - Bob Zellner himself. Mr Zellner will answer questions from the audience via a live link-up with the United States. Made possible due largely to the fact that his stepson actually lives in Golden Bay, this promises to be an unmissable opportunity for local film-goers and anyone with an interest in recent history.

Getting organised for the spring vegetable garden can be a little daunting for many of us. This is why I fall back on my garden plan to help schedule what needs to be done, and in what order. I also refer to sowing and planting based on the biodynamic calendar (see dates below). Here are few of my favourite crops: Early potatoes Buy certified seed or your own saved (healthy) potato tubers. Early varieties like Swift, Liseta and Rocket are good options for early planting. Check for diseases in tubers you plan to use as seed by cutting tubers in half. The psyllid bacterium (Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum) causes a zebra stripe or “glassy” fleshed tuber. Early blight (Alternaria) shows as a blackening inside. Common scab caused from Streptomyces bacteria and powdery scab from fungus Spongospora subterranea exhibit scabby lesions on surface. Avoid these as seed potatoes. Potatoes do best in fertile soil with lots of organic matter. Plant either by laying tubers on soil surface and mulch heavily with straw or hay, or dig a shovel-deep hole and lightly cover with soil and compost. Then add more soil and/or organic mulch as shoots grow through the surface. Early carrots Carrots are best sown once the temperature has warmed to around 15 degrees, around the end of September. Cloching helps warm the soil and aids germination and growth. The fine carrot seeds do best in friable, light soils. Add sand if soils are heavy. Remove any mulch, lumps and weeds from the

bed. After a week, lightly surface-till any small weeds with a sharp hoe. Do this two or three times to create a clean or stale seedbed before sowing carrots in rows 30-50 centimetres apart. You can add spring onions to the seed mix to help minimise the need for thinning and deter carrot rust fly at the same time. Onions Transplant strong seedlings in September to October into moderately fertile beds for best results. Direct sowing is also an option, but more care needs to be taken to minimise weeds first. Transplant, leaving 10cm between plants, with four-five rows per bed for full cover, or integrate them between carrot rows. Cabbages Like all brassicas, cabbages prefer fertile, well-limed soils. Add plenty of compost or rotted manure, and some fishmeal or blood and bone. Plant seedlings 45-50cm apart and deep – down to their first leaf. Firm in well. Silverbeet or rainbow chard This versatile leafy crop likes alkaline, medium-rich soils. It can be interplanted between cabbages too. Plant 30-40cm apart. Cloche to protect from birds and to aid seedling growth. French beans Once the soil temperature reaches 16 degrees it is safe to sow dwarf beans. Beans prefer light, friable soil. Avoid mulch till they are established. This deters slug and snail damage. Sow seed 10cm apart in rows 50cm apart. Cloche to encourage good growth and provide protection from frost. And this is just the beginning. Happy growing.

Vegetable care Last chance to order seeds before main sowing in September. Dig in green crops for September plantings of heavy feeders. Keep garlic, brassicas, peas and broad beans mulched with seaweed/seagrass. Stake broad beans. Liquid feed with diluted urine or manure brews weekly. Plant asparagus. Divide and plant globe artichokes and horseradish. Check for vegetable bugs, slugs and snails under rocks and pots. Feed to chooks. Hothouse Start propagating, especially heat-loving crops like capsicum and tomatoes, using heat mats. Plant young tomato plants into rich beds in the hothouse for December harvest. Clean plastic/glass for good sunlight. For transplanting: All seeds 7 and 21 August. Leafy greens (spinach, spinach beet, lettuce, endive, spring cabbage, Chinese cabbage) also 8 and 16 August). Onions (red and brown)(also 12-14 Aug). Flowers, eg viola (also 6 and 15 Aug). Sow direct: All seeds 7 and 21 August. Mesclun salad and spring onions (also 8 and 16 August). Broad beans and peas (also 9-10, 18-19 August). Onions (red and brown)(also 12-14 Aug). Flowers eg alyssum, candytuft, dianthus and wallflower (also 1 and 28 Aug). Plant: Best 1-5 and 20-31 August. Salad greens, spinach beet (cover), spinach, cabbages, onions and early potatoes. Flowers eg gladioli corms.

Herb care Give the herb garden a once-over, dividing herbs, feeding with compost and replanting. Plant new plants like rosemary and thyme. Sow hardy herbs in trays, like parsley and summer savory. Fruit care Plant fruit trees at correct spacing. Check drainage. Stake and mulch. Finish winter pruning. Complete feeding the orchard if you haven’t already. Harvest late tamarillos, pepinos and citrus. Check stored fruit for rot. Prepare strawberry beds and plant runners to replace old plants. Add compost and mulch with pine needles or woody mulch. Spray all fruits with liquid seaweed for general health and copper oxychloride vs diseases before blossoming. Spray citrus with all purpose oil or neem vs insect pests. Protect young subtropicals from frost and wind. Divide and transplant rhubarb. General garden care Finish fixing and cleaning garden tools. Organise garden equipment, such as stakes, stringlines, cloches, labels, etc. Divide and plant herbaceous perennials like Shasta daisy. Plant shrubs and trees. Mulch with shreddings. Lime/dolomite lawns. Prune ornamental trees, shrubs and roses. THE GB WEEKLY, FRIDAY 30 JULY 2021

Takaka Hill suffers storm damage



Recent storm damage to a retaining wall at the Takaka Hill long-term roadworks. Photo: Supplied. JO RICHARDS

For the second time in just over a week, storm damage temporarily closed the Takaka Hill Road. On Monday, the latest deluge to hit the region caused a slip at the long-term roadworks section of SH60. The road was closed to traffic from 3pm to around 10pm. A retaining wall, part of the reinstatement construction work at the site, sustained some damage, which a Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency (WKNZTA) spokesman explained would take “a week or so” to repair.

Last week, two small slip sites resulted in the road being closed between 3am and 9pm on Saturday 17 July. WKNZTA’s principal project manager for the Takaka Hill repairs Andrew Adams said that the advanced state of the reinstatement work helped to minimise the impact of the downpour. “Having three of the five sites up to the existing road level and drainage in place was very helpful as damage and delays at these sites to the existing work programme is minimal. These sites are nearing completion allowing water to flow through, under or over them as they are designed to do.”

It’s in the winter months that the New Zealand fantail or piwakawaka is a daily visitor to my garden. Moving around outside, accompanied by their constant peep, peep, peep, they eagerly wait for me to disturb the insects. It’s at this time of year fantails can be seen on the ground searching for food. Vocal, confident, alert and agile, seeking out human company is just one of their endearing attributes. The flying antics of fantails are exceptional. These birds use their broad tails to change their direction in flight quickly while hunting for insects. Small invertebrates such as moths, flies and beetles are their preferred prey. Many people will have experienced fantails searching under the eaves of their houses or had them entering their homes. I always welcome them as they seek out the spiders that live on the high ceilings, knowing they will find their own way out of the house. A friend recently shared with me, that one of her friendly resident fantails alighted on her head as she sat at her computer. The New Zealand fantail has two colour morphs, pied and black. Black fantails are rare in the North Island. In the South Island they make up less than five per cent of the population. Fantails are prolific breeders. One monitored pair reared five broods in a season totaling 15 fledglings. It is their ability to breed multiple times in a season, despite predation, that makes this bird a common sight around New Zealand. In Maori mythology the piwakawaka is a messenger, bringing death or news of death from the gods to the people.


Antenno connects in storm

A fire at the Tākaka Resource Recovery Centre earlier this month has highlighted the need for people to carefully consider how they dispose of batteries from electronic appliances.

Hundreds of Tasman residents used our latest communication tool to receive and share information during the recent widespread storm. The Antenno app was used to share details about flooding, road closures and public safety, while many residents used the app to report issues back to us. But there are still many people who aren’t aware of Antenno and how useful it is.

The incident sparked a full emergency response with fire crews from Tākaka and the specialist Hazardous Materials Unit from Nelson. The fire forced the closure of the centre for several hours. While the source of the fire could not be determined, it is suspected it was caused by discarded batteries from electronic equipment or a cellphone. Lithium-ion batteries supply power to many kinds of devices, including smart phones, laptops, e-bikes, scooters, e-cigarettes, smoke alarms, toys and even cars, but if they are not disposed of correctly they can overheat, catch fire, or explode. Dumping old batteries is an increasing problem across the region. All Tasman Resource Recovery Centres are equipped to receive batteries for correct disposal, while old cellphones can be returned to retailers. It is vital that people think about how they get rid of electronic waste and keep batteries out of bins.


Antenno is a free mobile app that sends you alerts and notifications about places and topics you care about, it even reminds you when your rubbish and recycling days are. There’s no need to check multiple sources of information because Antenno sends details directly to you, so in situations like those we faced recently, information was delivered straight to the phone. You can also engage with us more easily by reporting issues, responding to surveys, and providing feedback through Antenno. Simply open Antenno, go to ‘Your reports’ and add a report to tell us about what’s happening in your neighbourhood. Antenno is a small lightweight app that won’t take up valuable space on your phone or device. It is simple and easy to use, and it doesn’t require any personal details or even a log in. Download Antenno for free from your phones app store.

Collingwood crowned champions

was the level of performance across the paddock that just about every player on both sides could quite justifiably be awarded the accolade. There could, however, only be one team winner on Saturday and Collingwood’s well-deserved reward for all their hard work was not just the precious silverware added to their trophy cabinet, but the pride and joy of winning.

Continued from page 1 But the lead didn’t last for long. While the home supporters were still celebrating, Stoke mounted a rapid counter attack and won a penalty of their own, bringing the scores level at 3-3. The points seemed to stir the visitors and, as the clock ticked towards half-time, Collingwood were digging deep, defending fiercely and putting in some spectacular try-saving tackles as Stoke demonstrated their slick passing skills. The second half picked up from where the first had left off – at a relentless pace and intensity. Collingwood were now turning the screw, dominating lineouts, and grinding their way towards the try line. But they couldn’t capitalise on their territory gains and, time after time, promising attacks broke down, much to the frustration of supporters and players. The Black and Gold kept attacking, wave after wave crashing onto the Red’s solid defensive shoreline, until it seemed that the breakthrough would never come. However, around an hour into the game, Collingwood’s Stevie McLellan – along with his teammates and the home supporters – thought he had scored the elusive try when he wriggled over the line, but it was quickly ruled out be the referee. As full time approached, the crowd started to wonder what would happen if there score remained tied. The answer was a further 10 minutes each way, and it was 20 minutes of continued full-on rugby as both sides went at each other hammer and tongs to carve out a scoring chance. Collingwood had the better of the exchanges and came within inches of

registering a try, but were thwarted by the visitors’ desperate defending. With the game well beyond the 95-minute mark, the home side were awarded a penalty inside the Stoke 22, just to the left of the posts. It was a golden opportunity to wrap up the match but the ball sailed agonisingly wide. The home crowd let out a collective groan, while the away supporters cheered. Now the crowd were asking what would happen if the game finished 3-3 at the end of the extra period. This time the answer was, because Collingwood had beaten Stoke in a head-to-head earlier in the season, the home side would take out the trophy. So when the final whistle went it signalled the start of wild celebrations amongst the Collingwood squad and their supporters. As players and officials gathered on the pitch it was a proud Stoke captain Jacob Curtis who paid tribute to his players. “It was one hell of a game. We can hold our heads up high.” The victorious skipper Steven Strange responded saying it was “an awesome game” and acknowledging his teammates, and those behind the scenes. “Thanks to the club and the supporters, and to PhysEx who kept us going, and to Bay Fitness for six weeks of pre-season training…” Understandably Collingwood coach Graeme Miller was pretty chuffed with his season’s work. “I’m ecstatic to win the trophy… The boys were outstanding, they had to be. It’s been a great season; the boys are committed and trained hard.” It’s traditional to highlight a Most Valuable Player, but such

Skipper Stephen Strange lifts the cup.

High achievers: the Black and Gold increasingly dominated the lineouts.

Ata marie whanau, So much for drying out! • 17 July: A 49-year-old local female was charged with careless driving after crashing on Birds Hill, near Takaka. • 20 July: Police are investigating a road rage incident which ended in a 75-year-old male being assaulted and injured. Charges are inevitable and it was all so unnecessary. If you get mad about something, take a deep breath. • 21 July: A 48-year-old local male was arrested and charged with injuring with intent following an assault. • 24 July: Great to see our local LandSAR volunteers being recognised for their service to our community. Certificates of service were presented at a social event at the Mussel Inn. One was for 37 years’ service. Outstanding. • 26 July: A 49-year-old local female was charged with trespass relating to an incident earlier in the month. Take care out there on the wet and windy roads. The school holidays are over; remember 20kmph past school buses and give cyclists plenty of room. Parents, please ensure your children have (and use) their bicycle helmets. Kia pai to mutunga wiki.

Digging into the history of the Motupipi Estuary ANITA PETERS

the Nelson-D’Urville mineral belt, all show unusual tool designs suggestive of an earlier culture. The pre-European kumara storage pits in the area were a great find: unusually intact, deep, steep-sided and arranged in rows. Nearby are terraces that may have been graded for house and other garden sites. In 1848, Charles Heaphy recorded “3 small hill pa” with the main village and wharf across the Motupipi channel at Rototai. The Motupipi coal mines began producing after good deposits were found in 1842. Coal was initially gathered from under the mud of the estuary, on the beach and in the Motupipi riverbed and swamp, then later from horizontal tunnels, only one of which is still evident but now too dangerous to enter. While the coal was ideally positioned adjacent to the water’s edge, transporting it out by barge to the waiting ships. This was always fraught with danger as the high tide channel was narrow and shallow and the estuary regularly silted up. The remains of a small wharf built close to the coal source is still evident, clearly defined by its foundation rocks, and a pile of ballast stones lie nearby, discarded from vessels taking coal on board. The first settlers to Motupipi, the Lovells, were among those who built boats to send coal out to waiting ships. But coal was also later used locally, for winemaking, brick production, hop drying and fueling steam engines, as well as for the lime burning kiln. There are at least 10 lime kilns around Golden Bay, but the 1842 Motupipi kiln is thought to be the oldest. Unlike other lime kilns in the Bay, it has minimal concrete, is differently shaped and burned coal rather than wood. While covered in overgrowth, it is still remarkably intact. Of special interest are the loading/unloading bays and roadway at this site. Much of the use of the Motupipi area will forever remain a mystery, particularly during the time prior to 1842. But enough valuable information has now been gleaned to provide some answers to the rich history of this small pocket of Golden Bay.

How to beat Str8ts – Like Sudoku, no single number can repeat in any row or column. But... rows and columns are divided by black squares into compartments. These need to be filled in with numbers that complete a ‘straight’. A straight is a set of numbers with no gaps but can be in any order, eg [4,2,3,5]. Clues in black cells remove that number as an option in that row and column, and are not part of any straight. Glance at the solution to The solutions will be published here in the next issue. see how ‘straights’ are formed.

In 1994, an archaeological s u r ve y o f a re a s a ro u n d the Motupipi estuary was conducted for the current landowners. It uncovered various exciting and formerly unknown historic sites of human habitation. While written reports by early European only document activities from around 1842 onward, there is evidence that Maori family groups were resident around the estuary at least 500 years ago. Europeans had been drawn to the presence of coal and limestone, both needed for industrial purposes in the new colony, and both found here by the early surveyors. Archaeologists also found a gold prospect with quartz gravels and an old wheelbarrow wheel, although there had been no previous knowledge of gold in the area. In one part of the coastline, a concentration of both Maori and European sites surveyed again in 2012 included a coal mine, a European house site, a Maori oven stone area and a Maori pit and terrace site. Later, three more sites were identified: a lime-burning kiln, another European house site and a Maori occupation site. Unfortunately, much of this historic area has been badly affected by forestry, farming practices and animals, erosion, ear thmoving machiner y and vandalism, and on the coastal areas, wave action as well. Now much of the landscape is buried under jasmine, gorse and pine trees, making further exploration impossible. The lime-burning kiln, coalmine and house sites have also suffered from souvenir hunters’ scavenging over time. Despite this, the Maori occupation site is still very distinguishable and shows evidence of stone workings h a v i n g t a k e n p l a c e fo r some years. Black charcoal soils indicate cooking fires. Stone fragments, including sharp - edged cher t from Marlborough, glassy obsidian from Mayor Island and argillite from often remote quarries of
