Golden Bay Lions Club has donated $4582 to Nelson Tasman Hospice for a specialised mattress, which will be loaned to Golden Bay Community Health (GBCH) exclusively for use on the hospice-loaned portable bed. The Axtair Automorpho comfort mattress will be utilised in conjunction with the bed, which is used specifically for palliative care patients who are being nursed by staff from GBCH in their own homes. “The amazing Lions Club was very keen for a mattress to be loaned to Golden Bay patients with life-limiting illnesses,” said Dr Georgia Ciaran, the philanthropy co-ordinator Ray White was proud to support

for Nelson Tasman Hospice. ”After I consulted with Lions, Golden Bay Community Health and hospice staff, we gratefully accepted the Lions’ most generous donation and bought the mattress.” Dr Ciaran is seeking matching donors for items needed by hospice. These are listed on its “Wish List” newsletter. Registered nurse Jane Russell, from Nelson Tasman Hospice, visits Golden Bay monthly to support the palliative care nursing team from GBCH. The nursing team is made up of registered and district nurses, with acting nurse manager Victoria Hingaia and support services leader Carol Robinson.

Next Tuesday is World Ocean Day – a time to focus attention on protecting and enhancing our life-giving seas. We live on a “blue” planet that has more than two-thirds of its surface covered by oceans. These water bodies produce 60 per cent of the oxygen we use, adsorb 30 per cent of the carbon dioxide plus 93 per cent of the heat created globally by human activities. They also help to transport 90 per cent of traded goods. The oceans provide an irreplaceable resource for all humankind. Yet our oceans are now inundated with plastic waste, including tonnes of plastic microparticles that are finding their way into our food. New research shows these “microplastics” pose a major threat to the ocean food web. Rising ocean water temperatures are upsetting the marine ecosystem in other ways, including the destruction of kelp forests. Tasmania recently lost 95 per cent of its east coast kelp as a result of ocean heat waves. In 2011, Western Australia suffered the same fate. The loss of seaweeds is increasing in our warming oceans and creating “barrens” - bleak marine environments largely devoid of life. Ocean acidity is also increasing, further harming ecosystems. On top of all this, overfishing, habitat destruction and pollution have depleted multiple marine species. The dilemma confronting humankind, first and foremost, is how to stop the destruction of marine habitats. Then comes finding ways to re-establish fish and other marine biodiversity. New Zealand scientists and politicians appear to believe that locking up 40 per cent of our seas as highly protected marine reserves will solve the ocean’s problems. This action, however, would not prevent the loss of vast areas of seaweeds – marine algae that absorb five times more carbon than land-based plants. In other parts of the world, communitybased projects have successfully restored marine biodiversity, largely as a result of installing artificial reef structures in coastal waters. At any time there can be hundreds of larval fish and plant species dispersed within the water column. This is where modern artificial reefs play their pivotal role: attracting the vast assembly of floating marine biodiversity and providing shelter, food and a place to breed. Purposebuilt artificial reefs transform areas of low... Continued on page 3

Anti-violence talk


The team expressed a huge thank you to the Golden Bay Lions Club, which has provided on-going support for many years. GBCH stated the mattress will be of huge benefit in providing pressure relief and comfort to those in need. Hospice shop staff member Pam Gardiner agreed, saying she was wearing two hats on this occasion, as she is also the long-term president of the Lions Club. Lions Club representative Paul Milne stated, “One of our objectives is to support community groups, and the hospice does an amazing job in supporting people to stay in their own homes longer.”

The co-founders of the “She Is Not Your Rehab” antiviolence movement, Matt and Sarah Brown, addressed an attentive audience of community representatives at the Golden Bay High School hall last week. The event was organised by school guidance counsellor Abbey Gilligan, with the support of Mohua Social Services and GBHS. Matua Eric Lander opened with a short mihi and karakia before handing over to Abbey, who also welcomed the speakers. Internationally acclaimed as a barber and hair artist, Matt hosts a men’s antiviolence suppor t group from his barbershop – My Fathers Barbers – in Riccarton, enabling men to access free therapy and support. Matt empowers men to tell their stories and extends the invitation to speak their truth so that they can break the generational cycle of abuse. In the knowledge that perpetrators are victims of abuse themselves, Matt and Sarah both spoke about the importance of walking alongside those men, inviting them to take ownership, to break the cycle, and to “come on a healing journey”. Fo r g i v e n e s s i s a k e y factor in the healing process. Cultivating the ability to forgive others for their abuse provides a release, freeing up the forgiver and empowering them to move forward in their own lives. Matt knows from his own experience and his father’s story, that perpetrators are actually damaged children within the tough exterior. As Sarah said: “Our mahi (work) is helping the inner

child heal, building that inner child up.” Matt treats those who sit in his barbers chairs with dignity and an open willingness to allow them to share stories. “It’s been an emotional rollercoaster to hear these men open up and share their stories – I’ve seen men drop their gang patches, go back to their families and become better fathers,” he said. The couple collaborates with the Ministry of Social Development and Department of Corrections. Matt is the creator and facilitator of a barbering programme taught in men’s prisons throughout New Zealand, as well as being a Corrections NZ patron. “I believe prison has the biggest population of traumatised souls,” he said. Sarah related how she became dedicated to working with Matt 12 years ago, after he’d told his own deeply personal story to a group of young students. “You could have heard a pin drop,” she said. Afterwards many of them approached her to say they, too, were victims

of the same abuse. The slogan “She Is Not Your Rehab” and ensuing groundswell of support aim high – the aim being “a violence-free New Zealand”. But not just New Zealand; social media response to Matt’s 2019 TEDx talk reaches far and wide internationally. Responses stream in from indigenous communities throughout the world, confirming that many are in need of having those difficult conversations. In July, Matt’s book, She Is Not Your Rehab will be released. In it, Matt shares his own story and those of his clients. He introduces the people and concepts that helped him heal, and give readers the tools they can use to begin their own healing journeys. A question-and-answer session followed Matt and Sarah’s address, followed by speeches of thanks, a waiata and invitation to stay for a cuppa and chat. Visit Facebook MyFathersBarbers to find Matt’s TEDx talk on YouTube.

Tui’s Te Araroa tramping triumph H


What does it feel like to leave ever ything behind and walk the length of New Zealand with just a tent, food and the clothes on your back? Perhaps you could ask Parapara resident Tui Kemp, who has just returned home after walking the Te Araroa trail in 148 days. Her answer is “just lovely” and her advice for those interested is “Do it. It’s just walking and it feels so good to be moving.” For the uninitiated, the 3,000km Te Araroa trail runs the length of NZ, combining multiple alpine passes, a 145km section paddling (yes paddling) the Whanganui River, and multiple estuary and river crossings. It is a physically challenging endurance endeavour, and not for the faint of heart. Tui did not plan on walking the trail, but a number of events conspired to seal her fate. Her recently retired mother Jo, who is a kiwi ranger in the Paparoa Ranges, planned to walk the trail solo, and it was suggested that Tui accompany her. The last of Tui’s four children had just left home, and her workplace – Collingwood Area School – was happy to grant her six months’ leave. “I always say yes to everything – and now look at what’s happened!” Tui had six months to prepare for what is typically a four-to-six-month journey. Her approach was to buy or borrow second-hand gear, with the exception of a new tent. Her sturdy Grisport-brand boots were put into service and lasted the distance well. Tui

didn’t weigh her pack, but estimates that it weighed between 15 and 18kgs. She elected not to prepare by researching the trail, and instead “had an open mind and experienced it for herself.” This approach worked well for her, as it relieved anxiety and created opportunities to take each day as it came. In late November 2020, Tui and Jo set off from Bluff as northbound walkers (or NOBOs in trail parlance). They appreciated how the weather gradually warmed as they moved north, and were fortunate with predominately fine conditions. Their philosophy was to enjoy the trail and not to rush it – covering an average of 20-30km a day, with lower mileage in more mountainous terrain. The pair were trail purists – meaning that they walked every step of the journey carrying their own gear. While there were no shortcuts, the trail brought its own rewards. They saw the world’s clearest lake – Rotomairewhenua/ Blue Lake – in the Nelson Lakes National Park

and enjoyed daily stunning vistas, “the best being the Richmond ranges, Waiau Pass and Tongariro Crossing.” The trail brought interactions with fellow walkers, a “50/50 mix of national and international walkers, predominately young and female”. It also brought home to Tui and Jo the generosity of New Zealanders. Tui says she “loved the kindness and the openness of Kiwis” and it “made her think about the difference it makes to a traveler” when treated kindly by locals. The pair toasted their success (with Champagne, of course) after completing their journey at Cape Reinga. Tui says “it is so nice to be home” and that she is “thrilled with her achievement”. After greeting her partner and her dog, she was happy to “hug her coffee machine” and is enjoying simple things like sitting on her couch. “I am glad I have done it as [without Jo] I wouldn’t have done it otherwise”.

MARINE BODIVERSITY Continued from page 1 ...marine biodiversity into an ecological hub that promotes the growth of rich ecosystems supporting diverse marine populations. All Australian states are now installing artificial reefs, following the University of New South Wales’ reef trial, which showed fish numbers increased by 20 times, and increased plant and other marine life. A similar trial in Western Australia saw the number of fish species increase from 12 to 50 only two years after reef installation. Positive results have also been seen elsewhere across the

globe. In Korea, fish stocks increased by 2.6 times for every reef installed, while Alaska has gone a step further by also seeking water space for seaweed farming in addition to installing artificial reefs. The question for us here is whether Golden Bay is going to sleepwalk into the future and a marine catastrophe. We need to take notice now. Can we do something as a community? If so, why not try?

Our two councillors have suffered very severe criticism for voting for revised option A as the plan for the Waimea Dam cost overruns. Following my constructive criticism on this page some months ago, they have both done a great job of keeping us regularly informed about council matters and their own actions. Their explanations last week for the way they voted seem pretty reasonable to me on the surface, though I do not have a deep understanding of dam matters, but unlike it their arguments seem to hold water. Let’s all understand that this was a consultation, not a referendum. It is a common misconception that our elected representatives should do exactly what we tell them, but actually their proper role is to listen to us and then act entirely according to their own good conscience and judgement. Our hard-working pair, to whom we should we grateful for standing for election at all, are doing exactly the right thing by standing up for what they believe in. Calls for their resignation seem unjustified, after all it was not them that voted to get us into this mess; they are just trying to limit the dam-age. If anyone should resign it is surely the TDC CEO “Queen Janine” Dowding, who has reigned over this entire disaster, taken debt to dreadful levels and furthermore continues to ignore the dangerous and damagingly high nitrate levels at Te Waikoropupu Springs. Our councillors, and others besides, should be calling for her resignation. Steve Penny

Putting HANDS together

Our emerging HANDS movement will be built to ensure Golden Bay residents have a solid foundation to meet our needs; a critical mass of resourceful people, resources and land in order to heal and provide for one another locally. We’d love you to join us at our AGM to reflect as a community; to share wisdom and visions of what we each might offer and receive from our alternative trading system. In the shadow of serious emerging crises, to inspire you to join us in building this essential movement we will frequently be posting on Facebook’s Community Noticeboard page on Saturday mornings. You will find offerings of the week, requests for goods or services, and updates on our progress in recruiting local businesses to trade utilising HANDS. We now have over 600 members, potentially offering a wonderful array of goods and services. We say potentially, as we are re-starting after a period of inactivity. We will help you to successfully market your offerings for us to thrive. The AGM is at East Takaka Hall, Saturday 12 June, 4-6.30pm, followed by a potluck dinner by the fire. For more information contact Sunshine ph 021 050 3582. Sunshine Appleby and David Ludlow on behalf of Golden Bay HANDS committee

Limited options

This week, on her Facebook page, Councillor Hill stated that Councillor McNamara, along with the other five councillors (who did the right thing by voting for Option D), had voted against having option D as the fallback if Waimea Irrigators Limited reject the revised option A. She is correct. They did. But with many more years of experience, they were approaching things strategically, ie, the objective was to tie up the vote because with no casting vote it would have caused (for those who wanted the revised option A to be implemented), issues on what the backup scenario would be. In other words, they were saying that if the Golden Bay councillors had voted as we wanted, option D would have passed with eight votes to six (a quorum being seven), and there would be no revised option A. That leads to this: when was the revised option really prepared and presented to those known to prefer options other than D? I suspect that it was prepared when submissions closed, well before the public presentations, and given to certain councillors immediately thereafter. Mr Kempthorne, who happily threw the people of Tasman to the wolves in 2018, has suddenly discovered that he could ultimately have contributed to increased costs for himself. That which goes around, Mr Kempthorne? [Abridged] Gary Thorpe

Clarity on Takaka’s cohousing development

We are everyday people in need of warm, dry homes. Our name is Takaka Cohousing. We bought the 35 acres of land on the corner of Meihana Street and Rototai Road on 30 September 2020. A number of local people loaned us between $50-100,000 each in order for us to make this purchase. There is no large international investor funding this project. While we have connections with many folks from around the world this is primarily a local project wanting to provide homes built by local builders for locals to buy or rent. Liv and Graeme Scott from the Living Wood Fair and Elemental Design & Build helped us to purchase the land by being one of the many people giving us a loan and by being the initial directors of the company we formed to buy the land. We appreciate the risk they took for us all to make this possible. We are not building tiny homes. Each two- to three-bedroom home has its own kitchen and bathroom. There will be common land with a common house. We are planting trees, creating wetlands and donating land to a trust that will not be used for housing. This is a not-for-profit project. Golden Bay residents will have the opportunity to buy a pre-sale in July before we open up sales to the rest of Tasman. Please direct any queries to Simone Kidner, Sarrah Jayne, Bonnie Powers, Ngarie Jones

Big spend on grandstand?

We read the article on the front page of last week’s GB Weekly thinking how well our community has done in saving the grandstand. Until we get to the second to last paragraph where it states that TDC is to spend $900,000. This is obscene and very distressing. To spend this amount on a building that might get used a few times a year is just ridiculous. Everyone complains when their rates increase for projects such as the dam – how is this any different? A massive amount of money spent to benefit very few ratepayers. We live in a community with many issues – a social housing crisis, climate change, unmaintained roads. Most people could come up with a way to spend that money that would benefit the community more. We think the people involved in this cause have become blind to anything but saving the building and we do not think the community should be celebrating this decision. Maybe the people involved should think about how they would feel if this much money went into another project they disagreed with and they might see how many younger members of our community feel about the Grandstand. Jim and Mary Richardson

Grandstand: reinstatement, not costly upgrade

I have heard that TDC is claiming that the community of Golden Bay wants the full $900,000 upgrade of the grandstand and will be expected to fundraise a significant amount of this. To my knowledge the question has never been publicly asked and my feeling from interactions over the last five years is that all we want is what we had for a grandstand in 2015. If you too don’t want the costly “upgrade” please urgently tell the GB Community Board through TDC. Thank you all for continuing support. Jill Pearson

Beer tasting comp comes to a head

NEWS IN BRIEF Council seeks answers on Hill SUBMITTED

T h e Ta s m a n D i s t r i c t Council regional transport committee is seeking answers and solutions from Waka Kotahi NZTA in response to the community frustration at the length of time it’s taking to get the storm damaged Takaka Hill road reopened to two lanes. State Highway 60 was extensively damaged when extropical cyclone Gita hit the area in February 2018 leaving the road reduced to a single lane in places with traffic control ever since. Golden Bay Ward councillor Celia Butler led with a motion requesting a better timeline for the projected completion of hill repairs and asked for more public communication about progress on the road rebuild project. Committee chair, councillor Stuart Bryant in seeking a response said no-one is denying the challenge the project has provided. “However, as the only road access to Golden Bay, clarity about the remaining works and an end-date to the project would provide residents and commercial users with a light at the end of the tunnel.” Supping up for the cup: The happy prizewinners at last Sunday’s Beer Tasting Competition at the Mussel Inn.

How many of us have a childhood memory of snacking on peas in our parents’ or grandparents’ gardens? These popular crispy snackable vegetables are members of the legume or Fabaceae family, along with beans, lupins and clover. They all have the ability to convert atmospheric nitrogen gas into plant available ammonia with the symbiotic relationship with nitrogen-fixing rhizobia bacteria in nodules on their roots. Peas have been around for as long as 10,000 years, originating in the Middle East, with cultivars selected as far back as 5,000 years ago. Tender fresh peas weren’t grown until the sixteenth century. There are three main types of peas: 1. English peas (Pisum sativum, var sativum), also known as shell or garden peas, are the most common type grown for their seeds, not their pods, which are tough and fibrous. They need to be shelled and either eaten raw, frozen or dried. 2. Snow peas (Pisum sativum var. saccharatum), Chinese pea, or mangetout, which in French means “eat all”. They are grown for their edible flat pod rather than the seeds inside, which are usually immature when harvested. 3. Sugar snap peas (Pisum sativum var. macrocarpon) are a cross between garden and snow peas and have edible pods and seeds. Each of these types comes with varieties that are climbing or bush. Both prefer something to climb on like sheep fencing,

chicken netting, or bamboo sticks. Large tipis with a central spot to stand in also make a fun place for children to play and snack. Peas, like most legumes, like a sunny sheltered position and free-draining soil, with moderate amounts of compost and not too much nitrogen, which inhibits growth and fruit production. They enjoy soil with adequate amounts of potassium, sulphur, calcium and phosphorus, best supplied as natural rock minerals. Either direct sow or transplant from cell trays in late autumn to early winter and late winter into spring every three to four weeks for an ongoing supply. Sow five to 10 centimetres apart in rows, with rows spaced at 30 to 40 centimetres. It is best to mulch bare soil with grass, hay, straw, or seagrass to prevent peas’ shallow roots from drying out, although slugs can be a problem. Stop birds from eating young seedlings with netting or twigs. Peas take seven to 11 weeks to mature, depending on variety. They are best eaten soon after harvest, before they become starchy. Good companions for peas include cucumber, sweetcorn, radish, turnips, beetroot and carrots. On the other hand they do not like onions, garlic or potatoes. Nutritionally peas are a good all-round food. They are an excellent source of dietary fibre and a good source of vitamin C, and one of the best vegetable sources of protein.

Break the rules and live your dreams JOYCE WYLLIE

Davey Hughes, aka the “Swazi Guy”, spoke to a large crowd at the Rec Centre last Thursday. His topic was, “Break the rules and live your dreams”, and he entertained the audience with many stories of doing just that – always with his signature hat, boots, outspoken style and humour. Listeners heard adventure stories about walking through grasslands on an African plain; grass growing way above headheight means exciting close encounters with other animals walking through. There were travel stories about kayak trips in the Yukon Valley, and expeditions to Soviet countries. One highlight for Davey was his two years living in Swaziland, which is where the name for his clothing company originated. Davey always has a “flag” beside his name when he flies back into New Zealand because biosecurity needs to check him for “items of interest” from recent expeditions. He told a funny tale about the drama he caused arriving on a plane from Russia, looking suspicious dressed in mink hat, greatcoat and dark shades. Of course, there were stories about shooting moose or gazelle, but more stories about how a hunter can be a conservationist. After witnessing the killing of elephants and rhino he helped initiate a bloodhound team to track poachers. When he understood the destruction to crops elephants caused, he tried to help village people devise a plan to deter them rather than killing them. Shooting paintballs mixed with chilli pepper certainly moved the invaders, but it also made them mad – which was somewhat dangerous. Firing sky rockets at night scared elephants away but also caused fires. More successful was a plan in Russia to create a viable tourist industry that brought more money to the towns than the sale of rare tiger skins. Davey’s inspiring story recounted a boy who didn’t love school but found he loved books. He particularly loved reading adventure and travel books, and then followed his own dreams for a life of adventure and travel. Along the way he bought a small printing press in Levin, and established the Swazi brand in 1994. It has now grown into a chain of 13 stockists in NZ and become a successful international outdoor clothing business. The Rural Support Trust (RST) – with Rural Women NZ, Federated Farmers, Beef and Lamb and Swazi – sponsored the evening, complete with a free dinner before, and supper

after the speaker. Abbie Langford from RST commented that Davey “was a really good fit” to support rural people. Amongst stories and jokes he also said that people often say to him what a lucky life he has. He always replies that you don’t “just make time to do things you want, but you have to take time”. He also shared something he learned after keeping worries to himself when facing challenges in his business: that it is best to talk to someone, whether that is a partner, a friend or a counsellor. The invitation to last Thursday’s talk stated that he runs “a successful Kiwi business while having fun”. He certainly had fun on the night, and so did the crowd. Davey finished his presentation by giving away some of the latest 2022 Swazi products, and delighted locals when answering the final question: “After visiting so many places in the world what is your favourite one?” “Takaka tonight”, he said, “because of the great food, warm welcome and friendly crowd”.

Sweet pink treats were shared, a range of pink goods from the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ were available to buy, and tickets were sold in pink raffles. Raising funds for a worthy cause is an excellent goal, but even more important is raising awareness of the importance of screening to detect breast cancer as early as possible. Billy Kerrisk, of Ray White Golden Bay, said she would consider the event to be a success if even one woman made the decision to do a self-examination or book a mammogram. It is so easy to let these vital actions slip, but early diagnosis is the key to a good outcome. You may have missed Pink morning tea events, but now is still the best time to check yourself or encourage a friend to check herself.

“Waiting, Within the Nets” is a current art installation created by Golden Bay artist and GBHS teacher, April Hay. The Atelier Studio/Gallery, in Trafalgar Square, Nelson, is the venue for this exhibition and many Golden Bay locals travelled over to support and celebrate with April and Nelsonians. Atelier means an artist’s workshop. On opening night, Friday 28 May, guests were welcomed into the studio space to walk quietly through “rooms” created by “walls” of hanging net curtains. A number of projectors rolled images onto screens, curtains and under chairs, so visitors could contemplate the idea of waiting. April spoke about the “delight in familiar items”, like the net

Main office: 43 Halifax St, Nelson

curtains so many homes have, and she likes the idea of using something that “evokes memories, narratives and imaginings of the domestic mundane”. Many homes have windows and doors with hanging net curtains, and we all understand the experience of waiting, so April combined the concepts. It’s an interactive exhibition, so people responded by touching nets, quietly watching photos, and sharing about times of waiting, and some younger viewers created handshadow animals in the projector light rays. The exhibition is open until Saturday 26 June. It’s worth making time to wander through, and a nice place to inhabit if you are waiting.

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.

A good debate is great entertainment, so the recent Village Theatre fundraiser that featured two debates was a treat for a nearly full house. The appreciative audience was there to support the four teams, the privilege of having a local theatre and some not so serious culture. For the first moot, “Social media has improved human communication”, Collingwood Area School (the affirmative) challenged students from Golden Bay High School (the negative). Discussion ranged from serious issues – like cyberbullying and lack of face-to-face contact – to humour about Tinder and lonely hearts, as well as definition of what communication really means. In the absence of a judging panel, the “clap-o-meter” measured sound levels and deemed the GBHS team (led by Jodi Jefferson, with Eli Pomeroy and Rosie Brown) to have won over the CAS team (led by Lilly Bain, with Skyla Powell and Briar Culverwell). That result may have simply been that there were more Takaka than Collingwood folk in the audience as all six students showed confidence and skill when standing up to debate their topic. After time for refreshment and buying raffle tickets at intermission, the adult teams took to the stage to debate the topic: “People should always only speak the truth”. The affirmative team (led by Wayne Langford, with Alistair Hughes and Billy Kerrisk) tackled the stimulating subject, opposed by Mark Manson, who led team negative, with Dani Jamieson and Jenny Molloy. A friendly repartee touched on what you say when your wife asks whether her bum looks good in this dress, and if people always tell the truth when selling houses, and the meaning of each word in the statement, especially the important “should”. Again, the “clap-o-meter” deemed the opposing team the victors, but as before, every individual was a winner. They all put themselves on the spot for the cause of raising money for the theatre, and provided a lively evening out. These were all people from our community caring for a valuable community asset: a farmer, a journalist, a real estate agent, an undertaker, a stone specialist and a hairdresser, all with heart, courage, wit and abilities. Thanks went to Sage and the Village Theatre team for hosting the event, and to Neil Wilson for carrying out the MC duties so competently. There was plenty of grist for ongoing discussion about the topics chosen for the night, and people left pondering their own points about communication, truth and the debatable results.

Fridge Library offers cool reads ROSA VOLZ

Commercial Street is now host to a new community library – but with a twist. The library, housed in a repurposed fridge, lives between De-Lish cafe and the GB Arts Council premises. The library idea was conceived several years ago by local dance teacher Ali Tylee “as a community collaborative project”, and gained momentum recently when she saw a fridge on the GB Community Facebook page and secured permission to use the location. The concept is that “locals and travellers can freely exchange books,” says Ali. Books and creative endeavors are welcome. “Should you wish to contribute love letters, poetry or an inspirational message” there is a designated spot for these in the vegetable crisper (to ensure freshness). The fridge has been decorated by local hairdresser and artist Sage Taylor. The sides are painted with blackboard paint, and there is chalk in the butter conditioner, ready for “anyone that would like to express themselves on the fridge”. There is reasonable

turnover of the library content, and in the future Ali says: “I’d like to house collections that are themed, such as women’s health or graphic novels”. The fridge is a work in progress, with a new kids’ section due to open in the freezer compartment shortly, and running repairs to

ensure that the fridge remains watertight in wet and windy conditions. It’s a fun project for Ali and Sage, and they hope that it reflects “the Golden Bay vibe”. “It’s meant to make you smile, have fun and play”, they say.

Bay festival to celebrate Matariki JO RICHARDS

Ph 027 455 9895


As we head towards the winter solstice, thoughts are turning towards seasonal celebrations. Two years ago, Golden Bay Community Arts Council (GBCAC) and Manawhenua ki Mohua (MKM) organised a spectacular festival of light and it was hoped that it would become an annual event. Last year’s uncertainty over Covid restrictions, however, scuppered such plans and instead a smaller gathering was held on Pohara beach. Now the situation is more normal, GBCAC and MKM are once again working towards a Matariki and full-on light festival to be held in Takaka over the second weekend of July. Arts administrator Tania Marsden outlines the plan. “ Fr i d a y 9 J u l y i s o u r community Matariki celebration, including an opening and welcome with Manawhenua k i M ohua, lantern parade, fire show, music and dance. Commercial Street in the centre of town will be closed for the night,” says Tania, who is hoping the Bay will really come to the party. “We encourage anyone who would like to join us to dress up, bring your lanterns and meet for the parade at 5.15pm for a 5.30 start.” The celebrations continue

the following day. “We have a wonderful collaboration involving Dance Collective Mohua and the homeschool group facilitated by James Flynn bringing us projection magic, performance and participation,” says Tania. “There will also be a play and creativity area – “The Glowzone” – set up for kids of all ages.” Although the Village Green will be at the heart of the action, there’ll be plenty going elsewhere in Takaka, says Tania. “You will find artists’ installations around the town, businesses will light up their windows, and cafes will be open.” Like many local events, the success of the festival will largely hinge on the level of community involvement. “It will be as big and bright as we make it together,” says Tania who is appealing for contributions. “We want to hear from you if you have something to offer

or want to help. We want to hear from artists – if you have an installation idea and want to be on the map [to be published on the GBCAC website]. We want to hear from you if you have a local, community arts/entertainment event to list on our webpage, or if you can help with anything from organising to donating firewood.” GBCAC see Matariki evolving into a major event in the Bay’s arts calendar, explains Tania. “We look forward to Matariki finally being honoured with its own public holiday in 2022, and envision a winter arts festival with our community Matariki celebration at the heart of it.” For more information, or to discuss art installations, volunteering or donations, email Tania Marsden at: THE GB WEEKLY, FRIDAY 4 JUNE 2021

Over winter we all need to take extra care on our roads, and we have a couple of handy little tools to help with that. Come and pick up a free ice scraper and windscreen cloth from the Tākaka service centre – get in quick though, only while stock lasts.

Icy road conditions have caught drivers out around Tasman much earlier this year, prompting a warning to all motorists. Crashes have been reported all around the District, fortunately none have involved serious injuries. Our Road Safety team is warning that the ice problem is likely to worsen as we move into the colder months of the year. Tasman Road Policing Team Leader Senior Sergeant Grant Andrews says the problem compounds when frost forms on top of existing ice patches, particularly in areas that don’t get sun during the day. Although our contractors have been spreading grit in the worst areas, drivers are being urged to slow down and drive to the conditions.

Open Home For Sale: TENDER - Closes 1pm, Thursday 17th June 2021, Will not be sold prior Open Home: Sunday 6th June 1.00 - 1.30pm THE HOMESTEAD AT PAKAWAU Everything about this private, rural homestead with double garaging and sleepout, feels welcoming and homely. Situated approximately 14kms north of Collingwood, near the Pakawau Hall and handy to some great fishing spots, the Homestead offers you a place to call home, a place to feel grounded, and a place to bring family and friends together. It is fair to say, the bush is a bit wild, and the gardens are a bit too well grown, but the majority of the two hectare block (held in two freehold titles) is in fenced pasture, which is currently grazed by a neighbour to keep down the maintenance. However, for those of you wanting to grow most of your own food, this is truly paradise! Make sure you view our video and virtual tour and contact us for a full information pack.
