Nature Diary


Following a government rule change, council can now alter speed limits without having to change a bylaw. Staff are now looking at all the roads for the new Speed Management Plan. Waka Kotahi (NZTA) are looking at the state highways’ speeds. Some limits will be lowered and a change to 80kmph between Collingwood and Tākaka is possible, though this is a Waka Kotahi decision. Another consideration is reducing emissions from transport. Going slower makes a difference, so lower speed limits are also part of council’s emissions reductions plan. With our distances and scattered settlements, and total reliance on road transport for primary products, Tasman is a high transport emitter of carbon and a high user of private vehicles. Reducing our emissions by slowing down to use less fuel is one thing we can do. On the subject of public transport in and out of Golden Bay, the Public Transport Strategy has recently been adopted by council and starts next year. It plans for a community transport service for the Bay, run by volunteers. I am not convinced of the practicality of this as there is already a call on volunteers in our community, and drivers would have to be away for a whole day which is a big commitment. A commercial service was viable pre-Covid, and provided a service to both locals and tourists. Hopefully it will become viable again, reduce the number of tourists having to rent vehicles, and be supported to provide a public transport service. The Water Services Entities Bill has had its first reading, and has gone to a Select Committee which has called for submissions. For information on how to make a submission go to: www.parliament. nz/en/pb/sc/make-a-submission. Council will also be asking for your views before it makes its own submission. Information about this should be in Newsline and elsewhere. Along with other councillors, I have received a large number of letters from people about the Water Entities, and these views will be taken into the council submission. As a district councillor I will do a submission myself, and my concerns are related to service levels: how we in Tasman will have a voice, how works will be prioritised especially emergencies such as waste water overflows, whether water rates stay the same, and, if storm water is included (which is not yet known), can we rely on the entity to respond to emergencies as quickly as TDC staff do to flooding.

Kea: care and conflict resolution ROSA VOLZ

NO MATTER WHAT THE WEATHER THROWS AT YOU... Your Straight Up Local ITM Store can help with all your TRADE and DIY, PAINT and COLOUR needs

Golden Bay is one of three “hot spots” for New Zealand’s native mountain parrot, the kea. Its name is thought to originate from an onomatopoeic representation of their inflight call – “keee aaa”. The birds are endemic to the Southern Alps of New Zealand and were considered guardians of the mountains for the Waitaha Māori during their search for pounamu (greenstone). Golden Bay resident Lisa Savage is working with the Kea Conservation Trust (KCT) as a community engagement coordinator to raise awareness of this endangered native species. “There are only 1,500 left in New Zealand and, as they nest in burrows on the ground, they are at risk from feral cats, stoats and possums,” says Lisa. “What is unusual about Golden Bay as a ‘hot spot’ is that we have an alpine species at sea level.” Throughout Golden Bay kea can be observed in the Pōhara, Ligar Bay area as well as Puponga and Kahurangi National Park. KCT aims to conserve kea through research, accessible public information and positive working relationships with conservation groups and the community. Of interest to Golden Bay residents are two key projects – lead eradication and keahuman conflict resolution. Lead poisoning has been identified as a major threat to kea. “It’s an attractive food source for keas which shuts down their immune system making them susceptible to fungal infections,” explains Lisa. The trust’s initiative aims to reduce the incidence of lead poisoning in kea by removing lead-head nails and flashings from buildings in urban (lowland) geographies where kea frequent and replacing them with non-toxic alternatives. Lisa encourages local residents to consider removing lead sources on their properties. A common source, she explains, is “roofs on [buildings] including sheds and outbuildings, usually dating 1970s or earlier.” Should you identify a lead source the KCT will provide a free assessment and possible replacement through project coordinator Peter Fraser, email The second project, which concerns “kea conflict resolution”,

aims to “understand and resolve kea/human conflict incidents,” says Lisa. The “conflict” may arise from petty theft, property damage or animal disturbance. Anyone who experiences a kea conflict is advised not take matters into their own hands, but instead contact Nelson-Tasman conflict co-ordinator Andrea Goodman by email or complete the Kea Conflict Report form on the KCT website. Lisa explains that the best way to deter kea from inflicting property damage is to “avoid leaving food sources such as bird feeders or stuff lying around. Think of them as a four-year-old toddler”. The trust encourages anyone who spots a kea to record it in The Kea Database – a citizen science initiative from the Kea Sightings Project – by visiting: Lisa has a simple message for her fellow residents. “Be tolerant – admire our taonga.”

Young actors showcase their talents OPEN HOMES:

Two groups of young actors studying with drama teacher/ director Ronnie Short performed at the Mussel Inn last Sunday as a build up to their end-of-year production. Kidztheatre was up first with a set of “pop-up” poems. In the past, this age group has performed pop-up poems to raise money for Teentheatre competing in Theatresports, but these six- to eight-year-olds decided themselves to donate the gold coin door charge to Golden Bay Animal Welfare. For some it was their first stage performance, but with Ronnie’s assurance and encouragement they overcame their nerves. “I wanted to show off what they’ve been working on, to stretch them and give them a body of work to do,” said Ronnie. “There’s a lot of humour in these poems, bound to earn a chuckle or two. They’ve all stepped up really well.” For the first time the 12- to 14-year-old “Tweentheatre” group performed solo monologues, which are usually extracts taken from a book or a play. The pieces were equivalent to Grade Four to Five examination standard at Trinity College of London where

Ronnie herself qualified. She explained that for acting exams a high calibre examiner is sent out from England. “They would be similar to piano exams. The candidate performs a selection of pieces and then as they get higher up, two kids might do a duologue, or a group would do an extract from a play.” Ronnie says this exercise has really extended both groups in terms of their acting skills. Some of these children are already proven actors having performed in Kidztheatre’s annual productions, such as James and the Giant Peach, The Little Mermaid and Alice in Blunderland. Ronnie wanted to expose them to an audience midway through the year before they get their teeth into their end-of-year production, The Jungle Book. The supportive audience and ambience of the Mussel Inn put the kids at ease, each introducing themselves and the origin of their extract for context. The younger group gave brave renditions of their poems; the older kids, all in black, performed with an assured and professional flair. There is no shortage of talent in this remarkable group of rising young actors.

The science and ceremony of cacao JO RICHARDS

Anyone interested in exploring the contemporary relevance of ancient Peruvian cacao ceremonies can do so next weekend without leaving Golden Bay. On Sunday 3 July, Dr Corin Storkey and Sally Huapaya from Seleno Health are coming to Tākaka’s Sustainable Living Centre to demystify the cultural, spiritual and scientific aspects of cacao, and explain its application to the modern world. The talk will describe how Peruvian tribes used cacao in ceremonies and the ways it was combined with San Pedro for shamanic rituals. Fusing ancient plant wisdom with modern scientific research, Corin and Sally will dig deeper into the neurochemistry and physiology of cacao’s interactions with the brain and how it can be used to enhance spiritual development and wellbeing. Both presenters speak from position of extensive knowledge and understanding; Corin has over 15 years of academic and

research experience, specialising in medicinal antioxidant chemistry, oxidative diseases, cellular protection and health. He established Seleno Health as a means to provide people with education and tools to manage their own health more effectively. He currently leads the New Zealand based Maca and cacao research program that studies Andean and Amazonian plant medicines and substantiates their traditions through biochemical analysis. Sally is a native Peruvian of Andean descent, with ancestral knowledge of traditional Peruvian medicinal plants. She has a passion to bring the sacred plant knowledge of her people to the world and promoting respect and acknowledgement to the indigenous farmers and communities that produce them. Ceremonial Cacao, Psychedelics, Neurochemistry and Shamanic Ritual in Peru is at the GB Sustainable Living Centre, Tākaka on Sunday 3 July, 4-6pm. Tickets $10-15 advance, $20 on the door.

Readers of this column who never attend community board meetings may not be aware that in 2019 there was a revision of the standing orders for public forums. I must have been overseas when they were promulgated as I also missed this revision. I was responsible for extending speaking time from three to five minutes back in 2015 when I stood my ground to finish my speech, exceeding the three minutes, during a public forum at TDC chambers in Richmond. The mayor at the time shut the forum down and requested the police arrest me and remove me from the chamber. This incident is well published on YouTube. The end result was that the speaking time was extended to five minutes, as it is today. The new community board restrictions number six in total. It is number two that I challenge. It states “a speaker shall not criticise an elected member and/or staff“. In a democratic society the freedom of speech is what we cherish. To voice an opinion or criticise a person is the right of passage of all citizens. If we take parliamentary procedures, for example, the right to challenge the speaker or criticise fellow MPs is accepted as normal in the execution of their tasks in government or opposition. For us, the residents and ratepayers, to be forbidden to criticise or bring to account elected members when they fail us is denying us freedom of speech. This is not healthy for democratic representation. Reg Turner

The impact of Covid has made keeping the doors of Trash Palace open, difficult. They were closed two hours early last Friday, having barely survived the slamming they got from a departing angry and abusive customer. The cause of her fury and intimidating tirade was being politely asked to either put on a mask or leave. This should have hardly been surprising as signs stating that mask wearing was a condition of entry were clearly visible both outside and inside the store. I was among the shocked and shaken shoppers who had been berated, along with staff members. It was the second incident that week. Trash Palace is a valuable community asset, donating thousands of dollars to worthy local causes yearly, as well as providing very low-cost clothing, shoes, etc, and recycling unsaleable items as rags. All done by volunteers. Several volunteers are elderly, or have family members with compromised immunity, so have elected to operate under the “no mask no entry” policy to keep themselves, their families and customers safe. These measures have resulted in many verbal attacks that are unwarranted, inexcusable and very distressing. One wonders how much longer staff will be prepared to be exposed to such treatment. Already the opening days are reduced to three a week. No one should be abused in their place of work, especially someone working for the community. Let’s not stand by and continue to let this happen.

Matariki maramataka

Matariki has begun and there’s a very cool way to mark this significant time. Aotearoa New Zealand is celebrating Matariki with a public holiday for the first time. For many of us, this is an indication of our country’s maturity and a sign of hope for our future. A Matariki calendar is an ideal way to get in tune with a view of the seasons that is indigenous to Aotearoa. Robin and Rose Slow have donated 13 spectacular artworks made by Robin and arranged to bring to life the details of the Māori maramataka (calendar). The calendar lasts until Matariki next year. It features the 13 beautiful taonga created by Robin and it’s a fundraiser for Te Ataarangi – an organisation that assists interested learners to enhance their comfort and skill in Te Reo Māori and the tikanga surrounding it. In Te Tau Ihu o Te Waka a Maui (the top of the

South) Te Ataarangi offers classes to meet the needs of raw beginners as well as people who are quite expert. The calendar features in the editorial of this week’s The Listener too. Calendars are for sale through Belinda Barnes and the Pōhutukawa Gallery. Neil Wilson

Sustainable growth?

Thank you to the Marine Farming Impacts Group for highlighting the issue of noise and waste from marine farming. It takes courage to speak up about these problems. This industry, like many others, promote themselves as being sustainable and green. Yet, how sustainable are they really? Where are the figures on this, and how is sustainability measured? The diesel used for boats and trucks, the energy and infrastructure of factories for processing and packaging, the fossil fuel for their ropes, lines and buoys, and what about the energy needed for exporting farmed products? All of this activity requires resources and produces pollution. We’re at a point environmentally where we are faced with the stark realities of continued economic growth and development. Let’s not try and fool ourselves any longer, continued growth is not sustainable or better. Economic growth was an idea brought about after the renaissance in the 1600s. It’s now time to do things quite differently – collectively and as individuals. There is a strong movement towards Degrowth Economics. This is not a system of doing the same with less. It is about doing less and doing things differently. For example, growing and producing local and consuming local, this will become the norm. Many people don’t live and visit Golden Bay for more growth – we live here to find solace from this madness. Marcus Brooks

UPCOMING PERFORMANCES IN THE BAY Singing for the terrified

A tale of epic proportions


The definition of the word pandemonium in the Oxford Dictionary is “wild and noisy disorder or confusion, uproar, eg there was complete pandemonium.” It comes as no surprise then that a group of parrots is called a pandemonium. Golden Bay is home to three of the four species of parrots found in New Zealand, kea, kākā and kākāriki. In 2012 when Project Janszoon began working with the Department of Conservation to bring wildlife back to the Abel Tasman National Park, kākā, a large forest-dwelling parrot were “functionally extinct.” Historically, around 100 years ago, large flocks of kākā were seen regularly in the park, but, by 2012 there were only a few wild males remaining. The female population, often nesting in holes in trees, were easy targets for stoats. Over time they were killed on the nest, where they are most vulnerable, with eggs and chicks also taken. Following an extensive and ongoing trapping programme in the park, the release of captive introduced female kākā in Wairima/Bark Bay and Wainui between 2015 and 2019, allowed them to breed successfully with wild males. Kākā obtain all of their food from trees. The Abel Tasman National Park has a bountiful food source – seeds, fruit, nectar, sap, honeydew and tree-dwelling invertebrates. Like all of our native birds they thrive on a wild diet so it is important not to feed them as they need to learn to fend for themselves. While kākā are most often seen here in our national parks, Kahurangi and Abel Tasman, sightings are recorded in Tata, Pōhara and Motupipi. Kākā can be confused with a similar species, kea, the mountain parrot. The kea however, is larger and an olive green rather than an olive brown.


Never sing out loud? Want to sing out loud? Terrified of singing out loud? No matter whether you only mumble along at weddings and funerals, or only if you’re drunk at a karaoke bar or maybe you just want to sing in the shower we are here to help you. Vikki Clayton and Gilly Darbey used to be scared of singing, but now they dont give a damn – in fact they actually sing professionally and people pay them to sing. Join them in a fun, friendly workshop where you can learn some useful tips and exercises that will prove that you can sing and furthermore it can be fun. All or no abilities welcome. “We can’t guarantee we can turn you into Adele or Pavarotti, but we do guarantee you will come out of this workshop better than you came in,” says Gilly. Wednesday 6 July, from 5pm to 6pm at the Mussel Inn, cost $10. The workshop will be followed by a concert at 8pm, “We Wayward Women”.


Michael Hurst is bringing his renowned dramatic and comedic skills to Tākaka next month in a brand new solo interpretation of a 2000-year-old text – The Golden Ass. Freely adapted from the notorious original by Apuleius, Michael’s show is the story of Lucius – a young man driven by sexual desire and insatiable curiosity who is accidentally transformed into a donkey. What follows is a fantastical series of misadventures in a wicked world of witches, bandits, virgins, cultists, slaves, circuses, soldiers, pastry-cooks, prostitutes and priests. The Golden Ass is the original donkey show, inspiring such literary giants as Shakespeare, Boccaccio, Cervantes, Rabelais and Keats. It remains today a powerful plea for empathy in a world gone mad. With music and direction from acclaimed composer John Gibson, and performance by renowned storyteller, this modern take on one of the great classics will be a rollicking ride, well worth the fare. Rating: Adult themes. Not suitable for children. Wednesday 6 July, 7.30pm at Tākaka Playhouse Theatre. Tickets $25 advance, $30 on the door (if available). Cash tickets are available from the Pōhutukawa Gallery.

EARTHMOVING & CONTRACTING: House sites, driveways Culvert installations Drainage Land development Farm maintenance

Following on from their Queen’s Birthday weekend hui the Tākaka Cohousing Neighbourhood (TCN) group held an information evening on Monday 13 June. Hosted by the Dangerous Kitchen, the comradeship was evidenced by the cheerful chatter amongst the nearly 40 attendees. Mohua Ventures, the Board of Directors for the TCN, is comprised of: Simone Kidner (project co-ordinator), Kirsty Fernandes (community manager), Bonnie Powers (operations and finance) and Ngarie Jones (marketing manager). Further to the above is the construction team. Noble Contracting have been appointed as project managers, with Signature Homes as the main contractor. Elemental Design & Build are contracted to build the common house. Sarrah Jayne opened the evening’s presentations with a karakia, before Ngarie welcomed everyone, thanking them for braving the wintry elements to attend the event. Simone informed the audience that, following two years of planning, building work was about to start, with resource and building consents now approved for the first 34 sustainable homes. The aim is to eventually build 100 homes across three neighbourhoods. Half of the cohousing land is allocated for sustainable development, while the other half is designated as open parkland. The latter is owned by the community land trust, Te Hapori Hauora (THH). “Everybody owns their own home and the land directly beneath. Everything else is co-owned,” explained Simone. “Cohousing is about prioritising community over building houses. It’s about sharing resources. Less roads and more land create a happier healthier environment.” The cohousing model principles state that people’s wellbeing is increased by a shift from living in isolation to living collectively. There is also a decrease in costs and waste when land and resources are shared. Simone outlined the objectives: • Developing homes that are affordable and sustainable. • A development designed for community interaction, wellbeing and connection.

• Building strong relationships and trust with the local community and Manawhenua ki Mohua. • Creating open public spaces. Liv Scott, a director of Elemental Design & Build, expanded on some of these objectives. “We all need to look at how we can become more sustainable, with natural building using local products rather than from overseas…[The common house] will be the largest hempcrete and timber building so far in New Zealand.” Comprising a dining room seating 80, a commercial kitchen, laundry and guest bedroom, the common house will also serve as an emergency refuge. “It is highly engineered for safety and earthquakes,” said Liv. Next up was Te Hapori Hauora spokesperson, Duane Fernandes, who recently moved to Golden Bay with his wife, Kirsty, and their two children. They made the move from Tauranga especially to become part of the TCP. Duane explained the purpose of the trust. “It is a non-profit community-based organisation, created to acquire and hold land for the benefit of a community. Part of our purpose is regenerative solutions for the whole Mohua bioregion… also education and enterprise… The intention is that it will be a part of the town, and a space people will go to.” THH is headed by four trustees, including Duane, CJ Webster plus Manawhenua ki Mohua representatives Maree Reiher and Lenaire Crockford. Mairangi Reiher is kaumatua of THH and has advised, supported and provided feedback throughout. Signature Homes Project Manager, Steve Lawson, congratulated the whole group for their efforts in getting things off the ground. “I’m really excited to be part of it. I take my hat off to you guys, it can’t have been easy.” There are two single-storey, two-bedroom accessible homes and one three-bedroom, two-storey home still available for purchase. Interest is also invited for investment in neighbourhood two. For more information, visit or contact the team at

Continued from page 1 With seven minutes left to play, Tākaka were awarded a five-yard scrum after a knock-on by a Collingwood back. The visitors took full advantage and carried the ball over the try line to take the score to 9-16. Even the most optimistic home supporters were perhaps resigned to defeat, but this is Collingwood, and the team are a tenacious band of brothers. Cheered on by the Black and Gold army, and with seconds left on the clock, the home side somehow managed to force the ball over the try line. The final result now hinged on the conversion – the last kick of the game – and with the ball teed-up near the touchline, it was literally a long-shot for redemption. As half the crowd willed the kicker to miss and the other half hoped he would succeed,


Brad Goulsbro stepped up and struck a perfect kick to add two points and bring the scores level at 16 apiece. Speaking immediately after the dramatic finale, Tākaka cocoach Hamish Hills acknowledged the intensity of the game. “It was a very tough day at the office, Collingwood were very physical and we didn’t execute what we had planned.” Collingwood coach Graeme Miller admitted his “heart was pumping” as the final conversion was taken, but felt it was a fair result. “It was pretty even. We gritted it out and used all 22 players.” While neither team would be overly happy about the result, the last-minute salvage operation meant that the Collingwood dressing room probably was the more satisfied.

Jodianne and Campbell Peters are the new owners of the Bay Fitness gym, set up in the Rockville hall on the CollingwoodBainham Road. They took over the business from Renee Denmead on 31 March this year. Keen gym users themselves, the couple decided to make the purchase for the benefit of the whole community. They are both farmers and own the neighbouring farm, where they have worked and lived for 13 years. Bay Fitness was set up and run by Renee for 10 years and some of the current members have attended since the beginning. Jodianne and Campbell are two of them, and attend most days. Their daughter Sheree is now training to become an instructor and runs Boxfit and tabata. “Boxfit is a mix of boxing and strength moves, and tabata is like a high-intensity cardio workout, for a short amount of time,” explains Jodianne. Jessica Miller also works several days a week at Bay Fitness and is a fully qualified instructor. She runs the Sunday morning classes in circuit training and strength moves.

Perfect for couples, a playground for families and a paradise for hikers!

“I do it for the love of helping clients, getting people moving and enjoying their bodies for what they are, creating healthy habits and being proud of their achievements,” says Jessica. Sheree says, “I am competitive and I love my cardio, team competition and trying to help push people to improve themselves. And by doing that they are also helping me.” Both Jessica and Sheree also offer one-to-one personal training sessions. Campbell runs weekly boxing sessions and is a keen sportsman. He plays rugby and, with Jodianne, participates in the annual Coast-to-Coast events. They both intend to take up online study to become further qualified in gym instruction. Bay Fitness is always open to new members, offering two free classes to anyone keen to check it out. In addition, there is a gold coin donation class on Wednesday mornings at 10am, and visitors can work out for just $10 per visit. “It’s about keeping the gym open as much as possible for people to access independently,” says Campbell. “It’s open seven days a week to members.” Contact Jodianne on 027 445 7310.

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.

Immaculate Home With Large Garage




Charming Family Villa And More

Fully double glazed and insulated in the ceiling and underfloor, this is a lovely warm home provides an easy option for anyone who wants to be on the flat and low maintenance. The wrap-around conservatory is a great entertaining space and acts as a second lounge. The kitchen, bathroom, and laundry are right up to date and together with the neutral decor will make this an easy home to move into. The section is fenced off from the road and benefits from some extra space at the back, which bounds the council reserve. Good bore water and well-tended gardens ensure a bumper harvest of veggies and the fruit trees do well here too. The concrete driveway offers plenty of off-street parking and there is a carport at the back door. The double garage offers lock-up parking for two cars and plenty of workshop space. Call Sam today.




This four-bedroom home has ample space for the whole family. Featuring an open plan kitchen and dining area which integrates effortlessly with the living room and is complemented by an efficient Woodsman free-standing fire and two heat pumps. The family bathroom has recently been revamped and features a Shub and Solar tubing which adds extra passive light. The spacious master suite enjoys the morning sun and has the added luxury of an ensuite. Another three bedrooms benefit from built-in wardrobes and offer space and solitude for all. The sunny and established quarter-acre section with a huge amount of parking area also has space for keen gardeners to capitalise on self-sufficiency and room for a pet or two. A garage and attached building has been used for extra accommodation or storage when required. Call Sam today.
