Pig hunt beats “best ever”

Hunter Jonny Harwood said last year that the 2021 Upper Tākaka Pig Hunt (UTPH) was the “best ever”. But he’s got an update. “Actually, this year beats it.” A large gathering at the Upper Tākaka Country Club celebrated the 25th anniversary of hunt. Says Jonny of the quarter-century milestone “This is special ... We have managed to run the event every year, including the last two years dodging Covid.” Mixed weather conditions were no deterrent to the competitors, which numbered 65 adults and 32 children. An impressive haul of carcasses required the weigh-in (manned by Geoff Trewavas and Duncan McKenzie) to work double-time all afternoon. The 2022 hunt was organised by Jonny with locals and keen hunters Cindy Rosser and Amanda Brooks, but was started by three Upper Tākaka residents, Bryce Newlove, Dave Harwood and the late Ken Sulman. Dave

explains the catalyst for the hunt was a 1994 fire in which the Upper Tākaka Tavern, aka the Rat Trap Hotel, burned to the ground. “In 1995 we got the community together and converted the public hall into the country club. The Junction Hotel proprietors Graham and Nola Drummond donated carpets and substantial funds to do up the club.” Dave explains that the club establishment was significant as Upper Tākaka had already experienced losses, with the local school closing and a reduction of 33 staff from the Cobb Hydro scheme. “It was time to create a hub for our community. It worked beautifully, with so much support from all parts of Tākaka who wanted to see us thrive.” Once the club was established, the UTPH was first held in 1998. Former participant and keen pig hunter Crowther Reynish reminisces: “We used to do all the pig hunts on foot, walking to the top of Hailes Knob followed by

a good long night [at the club]. No motorbikes or Range Rovers. I miss the pig hunting, but those hills have gotten too steep.” The two top trophies, the Ian Foskett Memorial Trophy for biggest boar and the Gruff Thomason Trophy for largest tusks, also have special significance. Noelene Foskett and Bev Thomason presented the awards created in memory of their husbands, who were very able pig hunters in the Upper Tākaka area. New hunter Damien Vickery (age 4) took out the prize for heaviest possum. Damien tells The GB Weekly: “I shot four hares and one red eye [a possum]. The nicest thing about hunting is the shooting. I went hunting on my Dad’s farm [where he works] in Kotinga.” Winner of the Biggest Red Stag category, Wendy Brooks, says it was a weekend like no other. Along with her son, Kyle Gardiner, Wendy shot and retrieved a 70.5kg stag near Murchison. Continued on page 6

TDC tackles water reform JO RICHARDS

Tasman District Council is urging a Government Select Committee to make changes to the Water Services Entity Bill – a key element of the Government’s Three Waters Reform programme. Under the proposed legislation, the drinking water, stormwater and wastewater assets of the country’s 67 councils would be assigned to four Water Service Entities ( WSEs) each governed by a Regional Representative Group (RRG) made up of local authority and mana whenua representatives, and a WSE Board made up of competency-based professionals. Controversially, the Top of the South Island (TOSI) has been assigned to WSE C, which includes Wellington and Eastern parts of the North Island, rather than included in the South Island WSE D. The council’s position on this and several other issues were laid out in a submission, dated 20 July and signed by TDC mayor Tim King and council’s chief executive Leonie Rae, to the Government Finance and Expenditure Select Committee. The formal document, approved by councillors at an extraordinary full council meeting held on 15 July, was drafted following a recent round of community engagement on the controversial topic. TDC’s engagement process included webinars and drop-in sessions to provide information to the community and create opportunities for public feedback. Turnout at these online and in-person fora, however, was low – surprising perhaps given the apparent high level of public opposition to the Three Waters programme acknowledged in TDC’s submission. It read: “Over the past two years, our mayor and councillors have received 623 emails from residents raising concerns about the reform. None of these emails were in support of the reform.” As part of its districtwide engagement process, TDC posed a series of specific questions relating to the reforms, with the aim of gathering public feedback to inform the council’s submission. Twenty-one people (none from Golden Bay) provided responses – all voicing their opposition to the proposed reforms (see Table page 2). A number of Golden Bay residents, however, made direct submissions to the Select Committee rather than to TDC. In addition to a simple yes/no answer, respondents provided further information relating to their concerns, which fell into three main categories: ... Continued on page 2

Continued from page 1 ...the lack of community voice; ownership and appropriation of council assets; and having non-elected members on the proposed governance bodies. TDC’s formal submission reflects these concerns and makes numerous recommendations to the Select Committee that seek to address perceived problems associated with the Bill. There is some accord, however. In its submission, TDC acknowledges the need for change to water management and accepts that the current structure and funding arrangements are not likely to be adequate to meet future challenges, such as population growth, tightening water quality regulations, and the effects of climate change. It also supports the retention of public ownership of Three Waters assets and the proposed protection against privatisation, while urging the Government to strengthen the Bill’s current safeguards. Amongst the key problem areas highlighted by TDC in its submission are poor communication; the lack of accountability and representation; and the geographical boundaries of the WSEs. On the subject of communication, council expresses its disappointment with the Government’s strategy. “We are concerned about the lack of targeted communication and engagement with the public and request that the Government work closely with local authorities to help manage the public through future change.” Of all the contentious aspects of the bill, it’s the complex two-tier governance structure and its inherent lack of local accountability that receives the strongest criticism from TDC. “In general, we consider the proposed governance structure to be complex and top-heavy. We are concerned that the Drinking water is one of the “Three Waters” subject to new structure will create multiple levels of bureaucracy, result in Government legislation.

Consequently, it requests that RRGs be “…broadly WSE. “While communication on strategic issues via the RRG is representative of the different mix of metropolitan, provincial, important, those representing local community interests also and rural communities they represent”. need to have a direct relationship with the WSE to provide community input and where necessary help resolve day-toTable summarising responses to TDC questions. day operational issues.” RAPs should represent their local communities only, says Response Question TDC. “They should not be fettered with an obligation to Yes No Un consider the interests of all communities in a WSE’s service area.” Do you believe the central government case Another major bugbear is the geographical boundaries for change (the way water services are 1 20 defined for the four WSEs.

Assistant John Tse, centre left, accompanies the group on a shime drum. Photo: Ronnie Short. RONNIE SHORT

Year 7 and 8 Golden Bay High School students were treated to a Japanese taiko drumming performance and workshop last week. Principal Linda Tame organised the event in her role as an Education Champion for the Asia New Zealand Foundation Te Whītu Tūhono. As part of the school’s Asia Engagement Project, selected schools partner with the foundation to raise awareness and engage student interest in learning about Asia. Prior to the visit students researched taiko drumming, Japanese language and culture. “This has been a great way to learn more not only about taiko, but about Japan,” said Linda. “As a community with a small number of Asian people, we realise that for our students to be able to mix and work with people from lots of different cultures, we need to deliberately teach an Asia Awareness programme.” Taiko drumming instructor Jessie Gibbs and her assistant John Tse travelled from Wellington, supported by the non-profit Asia NZ Foundation. Jessie teaches 70 “mostly adult” students across five nightclasses, of which John attends the intermediate and advanced classes. He has been playing for four years. Their team, known as Narukami Taiko, are renowned in the Wellington region where they play street and other performances. Jessie lived in Japan for a year, and has been teaching and performing taiko drumming since 2008. She also makes taiko drums herself and now owns many more than the 20 brought

on tour. The drums all have stands, most with wheels for easy manoeuvring, and handles for lifting. Jessie said, “they stack like tetris” into the van the pair travels in. Each of the different-sized drums have their own pitch and tone. Jessie and John keep the timing on the small shime drums, which are higher pitched. Shime are made of hickory, while the larger drums are made from pinewood, old wine barrels, or bamboo, with cow skin stretched tightly over the top. Jessie explained that taiko drums made here cost $30004000 each, whereas the hand-carved taiko drums in Japan cost $15,000 each. The latter are hollowed out from 100-year-old keyaki elm trees and traditionally made from horse skin rather than cowhide. This renders a higher-pitched sound. Participants were invited to pick up a pair of bachi drum sticks and stand beside a drum. Jessie demonstrated the correct way to insert ear plugs although earmuffs were also available. Following clear instructions for holding the bachi and hitting the skins, everyone had a go. Further instruction produced better tones, and in a very short time participants were playing a song called Ya Tai Bayashi. They were accompanied by John sitting on the floor with his legs wrapped around a large double-barrelled drum, and by Jessie on a shime drum. The result was dramatic and very loud, with Jessie calling “hii hii hii” at intervals. By the end of the 75-minute session, a second song had been played by all, questions answered, and everyone left with a well-rounded experience and knowledge of this traditional Japanese art form.

While I agree with Gary (GBW letters, 29/7) that the UN and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals need to be put under a lot of scrutiny, and while it is nothing new that certain people and organisations co-opt worthwhile causes to increase their wealth, status, and influence over other people’s life, I don’t agree that these goals, taken at face value, are unworkable on a global scale. Why should anyone go hungry if there’s more than enough food in the world for everyone? Why should anyone work under demeaning conditions while others are buying yet another mansion? Why shouldn’t we look after the waterways, the soils, and human and non-human beings so we can live together in relative harmony, health, and peace (another goal!)? What’s wrong with being accepted and fostered by the community regardless of our skin colour, religion, gender, etc? Rather than being difficult, this could be easily achieved if we stopped playing the game of divide and conquer in which most of us end up losing anyway, and put some real effort into reconnecting to one another and the world around us. Most people just want to live in peace, have a secure home, enough to eat, and maybe go on holiday once a year. Let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater. The SDGs are good enough but not everyone who claims to have our best interest at heart really does. Let’s reclaim our future and build it ourselves instead of following people in New York or Geneva. Nina Sobhani

Coffee cup confusion

I have been using reusable coffee cups for several years now. I feel very good about that. Some outlets even reduce the cost of coffee by $1. The town of Wānaka is going 100 per cent single-use coffee cup free. All very positive signs of trying to care for the environment. My reusable coffee cups are very easy to clean. However, here in Tākaka, I was recently told that reusable cups can’t be used because of health regulations. Clarity needed, please, as to where one can, and cannot use, reusable coffee cups.

Amazing emergency responders

Mike and I would like to express our immense gratitude to the volunteers and our medical centre for the exemplary care they offer our community. I think many urban areas would be hard pressed to have emergency services turn up at their door as quickly as we experienced last week. We would like to

acknowledge the family, employers and the wider networks that support volunteers to respond at the drop of a hat to emergency situations. We are so lucky in our community to have these amazing services available. Jessicah Win

Tākaka’s Sustainable Living Centre is looking forward to the arrival of spring and the start of another season of learning. The sixth iteration of the now well-established Sustainable Living Course begins on 19 September and runs for 11 weeks. With food and fuel prices increasing, and the withdrawal of many government and NGO services to the community, SLC tutor Rita Scholten says there is an urgency for communities to become resilient. “There has never been a more critical time to build our skills for a genuinely sustainable future… Our Sustainable Living Course is designed for these times.” The course provides students with hands-on practical experience in sustainable living, regenerative practices and efficient land use planning, explains Rita. “We offer a variety of modules: organic growing; permaculture main design; natural building; sustainable eating; personal sustainability; community resilience and conscious business practices; and completing a personal project.” Students can sign up for the full 11 weeks (cost $4225) which covers all modules, or opt for a seven-week course (19 September-4 November, cost $2895) in organic growing and permaculture design plus a foundation for other modules. In both cases the fees include in-depth tuition, guest speakers and field trips. Alternatively students can design a personal course to suit their time and pocket from the modules available. Options include: Natural Building: Five-day course (16-21 November, excluding Sunday) with Rita Scholten. Cost: $450. Organic Growing: 11-week course (average one day per week) with Sol Morgan. Cost: $895. Permaculture: Nine-week course (average two days per week) with Robina McCurdy. Cost: $1450. For more information and/or to sign up, go to: www. or email:

Forest and Bird will be installing new signage at the Collingwood shorebird roost sometime next week (see image left). This is to replace t wo old, unattrac tive and uninformative signs already there with something new, appealing and educational. The Collingwood roost is an OSNZ scientific site where data is collected to inform regional, national and international science. The signs will be placed, one at the entry onto the beach from the motor camp and the other at the end of the walkway from the reserve onto the beach. The signage is aimed mainly at visitors. “We know that the local community in Collingwood have looked after and respected this taonga they have on their doorstep for many years,” says Forest and Bird.

GB’s U16s in action against Motueka last Sunday. Photo: Supplied. SUBMITTED

Last Sunday three Golden Bay netball teams travelled over to Motueka for the annual club fixture between Golden Bay and Motueka. In the U16 match Golden Bay took a while to settle but they soon found their groove. It was a very young side with half the team being U14s who made up the defensive end. There are clearly some very promising players coming through the club – Motueka officials even mentioned the potential in the GB team. Final score: Motueka 34 vs Golden Bay 22. In the higher age-group clash Golden Bay U19s showed some nerves at the start and, again, took a while to settle. Hayley, Shikana and Maddy all had an excellent game defensively and, once GB got some attacking combinations set in the second half, they reversed the half-time deficit to take the win. Final score: Motueka U18s 22 vs Golden Bay U19s 25. The seniors match saw some incredibly fast-paced play from Golden Bay which sometimes was to their detriment and resulted in them throwing a number of balls away. But the girls were strong and fit and showed great class on court to overcome Motueka. Final score: Motueka 21 vs Golden Bay 41. GB Netball Club’s Clarissa Bruning said it had been a great fixture. “Overall a fantastic day with some really competitive netball and some amazing talent on court.” And she paid tribute

to those behind the scenes. “Massive thank you to Annie Godsiff for all the work gone in to make this day happen. Also to our coaches for guiding our players.” Before players headed over the Hill, the local Winter Netball competition continued last week with the A and B grade semifinals. The season concludes this Sunday with finals, starting at 9am followed by prizegiving afterwards in the St John rooms. The club welcomes everyone to come along and support the teams as they battle it out for the top spot in each grade.

Football fundraiser JO RICHARDS

With the football season approaching full-time, there’s still heaps happening at Golden Bay Association Football Club. This Saturday, the Bay’s junior, youth and senior teams play fixtures home and away (see schedules left), while on Sunday, the club hosts a charity fundraiser at the Rec Park, where teams from Richmond AFC will take on the home sides. GBAFC president Phil Smith explains the purpose of the event which kicks off at 10.30am. “The idea is that it’s club versus club with all teams getting involved and having fun, but in the process raising money for our three charities.” The three causes that will benefit from the money – and awareness raised – are Big Brother Big Sister (Nelson-Tasman), Special Olympics (Nelson), and I Am Hope. Last year GBAFC raised over $14,000 but have a more ambitious goal this year. “Our target is $25,000,” says Phil. With a bar, barbecue and cake stalls, plus a bouncy castle (weather permitting), there’s plenty of off-pitch action. But the focus is sure to turn to the pitch at 2pm when the Shield Maidens tackle the Bogans in the final match of the day.

Surrounded by excited family members, centenarian Jack Walls celebrated his milestone birthday at Golden Bay Community Health with a celebration lunch and cake. When asked about Jack’s secret for a long life, his greatgrandson Moss, from Matakana, said that Jack liked yellow foods like bananas, and that “Yellow helps you live longer.” Daughter Fiona del Bosco, holding a photograph of a younger Jack boiling up a billy brew, secretly believed it came down to cups of tea. “He loved his ordinary tea, nothing too fancy. Tea was pretty central to the whole survival strategy of our family.” But Jack’s longevity is more likely due to his great love of nature and quest for knowledge. “He really values living,” says granddaughter Tara. “I’ve never known him to express a wish to lie down and die.” Jack was deeply engaged with native habitats, collecting, cultivating and propagating native and alpine plants, hundreds of which were given away or sold at school fundraisers for families in underprivileged communities, or donated to Save the Children. Daughter Angela Walls-Renwick said that Jack always encouraged the family outdoors, gardening and tramping. As he was an athlete, a good tennis and football player, they were

also encouraged to follow sport, and be ‘vigorous.” Jack and his wife Hazel, who passed away last year, both shared a keen interest in Māori culture and learning Te Reo. Jack loved history, and worked as archaeological site recorder for the Historic Places Trust and Nelson Museum, surveying sites of Māori habitation in Golden Bay. “We used to go out to digs as kids,” remembers Fiona. “We learnt how to spot artefacts lying on the beach, like little pieces of argillite, tell-tale signs of occupation. We had an amazing upbringing. Dad would teach us all these things, and encouraged us also to get into literature and the arts.” After Jack and Hazel moved to Golden Bay around 45 years ago they had a QEll National Trust covenant placed on their land. This legacy was passed onto their children, even granddaughter Tara, and they all now own covenanted land. “His influence has gone through the generations,” explained Fiona. “Dad encouraged us all to think about the world and how we can make a contribution.” Jack and Hazel had six children, and Jack now has 12 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, who clearly hold him in the highest regard. “This is a real celebration. No one else in our family has ever reached 100 before.”

Tootsie is one of the classic movies screening at the Village Theatre.




A $25 Take Note voucher will be awarded to the first correct solution drawn. Entries can be left at Stitch ‘n Sew, or scanned and emailed to by midday on Monday 15 August. We plan to publish a crossword each week in August as part of “wordFest” month

Name: .............................................................

Following a very successful season last year, the Village Theatre’s Classic Cinema season returns, with more films and even greater variety. Six films will be shown every fortnight on a Sunday afternoon at 4.30pm, until the end of October. Organiser Peter Barker is very happy with the selection of these features, but admits that it took some time to coordinate. “This year has been a little easier because I had already found the film distributors for our first Classic Cinema season. The main thing was trawling through their enormous catalogue and finding films that might fit our programme.” After the sell-out screening of Some Like it Hot last year, the season begins next Sunday (14 August) with another “gender bender” comedy, the enormously popular Tootsie from 1982. It stars Dustin Hoffman, as an actor having difficulty winning roles who reinvents himself as actress Dorothy Michaels, and Jessica Lange who won Best Actress for her role in the film. Doors open at 3pm for a special afternoon tea, followed by a fashion parade at 4pm. A chance to get dressed up, maybe win a prize and, best of all, have some fun. After the fashion parade the film will begin at 4.30pm. Tickets for this event are $20, and movie-goers are advised to book early to avoid missing out. On Sunday 28 August there is an opportunity to see the Alfred Hitchcock classic Rear Window), a 1954 romance/thriller starring James Stewart and Grace Kelly. “This may not be a spoiler alert,” says Peter, “but because it’s Hitchcock there might be a murder involved, and it’s very suspenseful, regarded as one of his very best.” The first Classic Cinema film for September will be Black Narcissus from 1947. Set in a Himalayan monastery at the end of the British

colonial era, Deborah Kerr is a Mother Superior charged with setting up a school and medical clinic. “The set design and technicolor photography is stunning,” promises Peter. A fortnight later is the best screen adaptation of Dickens’s Great Expectations, from 1946. Directed by David Lean and starring two Knights of the cinema: John Mills and Alec Guinness. “Lean uses the visual power of cinema to make the many dramatic situations of the story vivid,” wrote the British Film Institute. October sees the screening of a film that needs no introduction: Casablanca from 1942, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Claude Rains. Filmed and set during World War II, an American expatriate must choose between his love for a woman or helping her and her husband escape from the Vichy-controlled city of Casablanca. Winner of three Oscars: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, this is a timeless classic. And like Rear Window and Black Narcissus, this screening has been digitally restored. As per last year, the 2022 Classic Cinema season is concluding with a Kiwi classic. Ngati, (1987), is the story of a predominantly Māori East Coast community in the late 1940s, and is culturally important as the first feature to be written and directed by Māori filmmakers. Director Barry Barclay is well known for the landmark documentary TV series Tangata Whenua, and the music is by Dalvanius Prime (Poi-E). Peter is very happy with this year’s selection. “The overall criteria was to select films which would offer variety and be entertaining, and I think we’ve done that. It’s definitely worth giving people an opportunity to see them, and important for the Village Theatre to show a diverse range of films.”

School welcomes new principal ANITA PETERS

The Motupipi School community, board members, parents and local iwi have officially welcomed their new principal Rachel Evans at the beginning of Term 3. Even after only a few days, Rachel now seems quite at home, getting to know the students, staff, and systems procedures. “Obviously I’m still building relationships. That’s the first big job, learning all the kids’ names.” Already she is singing the praises of her new school, not dissimilar, she says, to rural Paparimu School (on the south Auckland outskirts) where she has been principal for the past eight years. “Here we’ve got the same beautiful outlook, a lovely school community, close relationships, neat kids and staff.” A teacher for 20 years, Rachel left her hometown of Nelson 13 years ago. Now, after five lockdowns in Auckland, the time felt right to be near family in Māpua. Several school events are already in place through to the year’s end. The first is the upcoming Abel Tasman Youth Ambassadors Retreat, part of Project Janszoon. Then on 26 August is the school’s annual Daffodil Day, the proceeds of which are donated to the Cancer Society. “This is a great charity to support,” says Rachel. “It’s good for the kids to experience that whole enterprise idea by following the technological process and coming up with little business schemes. Our Term 3 focus is our School Value of Responsibility, so they’ll be managing and taking turns being a customer, plus running the stall.” With the same theme of “responsibility”, the students are also taking ownership of different areas of the school, including the bush, gardens, and adopted section at Wainui. This term there is a classroom science focus, with the juniors studying plant power, and the middle and senior students learning about the creepy crawlies. Another Term 3 school activity is miniball, with two Motupipi teams playing other schools each week towards a play-off finale. Around half of the students plus some parents are off to the snow at Rainbow Ski fields on 31 August. This usually expensive exercise has been made possible by securing a subsidised group booking, plus pooling resources such as transport. The third fundraising Plant Sale is planned for 29 October. Fundraising is essential, recently enabling the rebarking of the playground and new sand for the sandpit. Rachel encourages

anyone interested in helping with this event to contact Pip at Looking further ahead, the school is keen to know about 2023 enrolments, so that they can start to shape class numbers for next year, and match year levels and teachers. Back to the present, Rachel says she already feels really welcome at Motupipi. “Usually my gumboots are by my desk. It’s that smaller rural feel that I enjoy. I think it’s the close-knit community, that partnership between the student, the teacher and the family. I’m excited to be here; we want to see what we can enhance or build upon and then we want to see what areas we can develop or grow.”

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.
