Women bikers “Just Ride!”

In recognition of International Female Ride Day (IFRD) last Saturday, five female motorbike riders met at Tākaka’s Visitor Information Centre. IFRD is an event held worldwide, on the first Saturday in the month of May, to celebrate women on motorbikes. This year marks the 16th IFRD, and representatives from over 120 countries participated. The IFRD goals are to build awareness of women motorcycle riders and to promote those who enjoy the sport across worldwide cultures and communities. Their call to action, “Just Ride!” further aims to encourage other women to take up the activity. Cathy Sage instigated last weekend’s participation via a local women bikers Facebook page. She suggested a 10am rendezvous followed by a ride up Tākaka Hill to the Woolshed Café. From there they would

return to town for lunch at The Wholemeal Café. This is the second year Cathy has initiated the IFRD ride. Now she intends to create a monthly ride for local female motorcycle enthusiasts. Cathy has been enjoying riding again for the past seven years, after a 30-year interlude. Sporting a Suzuki DR 650, she is able to ride off-road territory as well as treading the tarmac. New participant Liz pulled up on her 250 Royal Enfield Himalayan 450. She has been motorcycling for just two months. “I always cycle the Rainbow Road and I had motorbikes always pass me, and thought I have to get a bike so I can do that,” she said. Lee Rzoska cruised in next on her 250 Suzuki road bike, a rider for two years now. Like Liz, Lee is attending the free Ride to Live

courses held in Nelson. Both women have earned their bronze badges and are now working towards a silver. Lee rode farm bikes and horses as a child, and loves motorbiking. “I reckon if you can ride a horse and stay on, you can ride a motorcycle,” she said. Inke Thomas-Clark arrived next, on her BMW 650 XCountry bike. She claims to be the “oldest” rider, having ridden motorbikes since her childhood in Germany. Last but not least, Rhonda – a keen rider of 30 years – joined the troupe on her Triumph Street Triple 675. As 10am rolled around, all were keen to hit the road. Cathy passed around the 2022 IFRD “Just Ride!” flyers for everyone to display and they started their bikes. The flock of five took off towards their hilltop destination to meet with a sixth rider, who was joining them from Nelson.

Community Board JO RICHARDS

Golden Bay Community Board’s monthly meeting took place in person for the first time in months on Tuesday morning, but Zoom remained an option for some. It turned out to be a rather short meeting which focused largely on two ongoing issues, and was notable for being the last appearance by Tasman District Council’s environmental assurance group manager Dennis Bush-King who is retiring at the beginning of next month. Public Forum Dennis was very familiar with the only topic raised in the forum – the proposed seawall at Pakawau. Chair of the Pakawau Community Residents’ Association (PCRA) Nigel Lloyd filled his five minutes with an update of the association’s position and a request for further community board input. He began by acknowledging the community board’s support and TDC’s prompt response to questions submitted at April’s forum (GBW, 14/4), but then asked: “What happens next?” Referring to the “complex” resource consent application process, he explained that the requirement to provide over 100 pages of supporting evidence, plus a $10,000 fee, without any certainty about the outcome, was of great concern to the PCRA. “We’re worried about the realisation that we’re heading towards another costly hearing.” The prospect had prompted the PCRA to consider whether they would proceed with the application, or “give up and surrender people to the sea”. Nigel contrasted the association’s complex and costly process with examples of the council granting itself consent to construct rock walls at Collingwood and Pōhara. “We believe that if council can use rock structures to protect their property, then we should be able to do the same.” Prior to making a decision to progress the application, Nigel urged the community board to provide support by setting up a “workshop” to bring all interested parties together in order to help clarify the issues. Chair’s Report Pakawau Seawall: Nigel’s request was the first item dealt with in the Chair’s Report and it triggered a lengthy discussion. Councillor Celia Butler noted that the resource consent process was underway and wasn’t “something that can be deviated from”. GBCB member Averill Grant highlighted... Continued on page 2

GB Community Board – May Continued from page 1 ...what she believed was an inconsistency. “Council can [build rock wall protection] on their own land but are making it difficult for the public.” She expressed the need for council to show “flexibility”. Dennis explained that the PCRA’s proposal was problematic under current legislation. “They want to put a private structure on public land.” Board member Dave Gowland said the public land referred – the esplanade reserve – should be protected, as it offers “significant environmental and public benefits” and is therefore consistent with the NZ Coastal Policy Statement. Councillor Chris Hill addressed the uncertainty over whether the application would be notified and a formal hearing held. “Surely the criteria required for a hearing are very clear.” Dennis wrapped up the discussion by suggesting that the GBCB wrote to TDC’s resource consent manager to request further discussion and to clarify PCRA’s options. Dennis’s retirement: All eyes stayed on the soon-to-beretiring Dennis as GBCB chair Abbie Langford formally thanked him for his support over the past seven years. “As chair I have very much appreciated your kind and calm nature, and your willingness to be available to the board. You have done the hard job of letting the board learn and understand, while ensuring that this is not at the expense of our community. Your knowledge and experience will be greatly missed, and we wish you all the best for the future.” Dennis responded, thanking Abbie for her “kind words” before saying a few words of his own. “Golden Bay is a special place, as we know… I’ve always been supportive of having staff in Golden Bay, and had a keen interest in maintaining contact with Golden Bay.” He acknowledged the nature of his role. “I’ve tried to identify solutions for people, to meet their needs. There are always challenges… It’s not always easy.” Festive decorations: Abbie had collated information and options on a variety of festive decorations for Tākaka, but the

board considered them expensive and their installation and maintenance potentially problematic. After some debate it was decided that the Village Green should be earmarked as the focus for festive decorations – for both Christmas and Matariki celebrations. Road safety: Celia raised two safety issues with the road layout and markings at the junction near the Fonterra factory. The first involved the position of the give way sign for traffic coming from Sunbelt Crescent and going straight ahead into Meihana Street. “The sign is too far back from the intersection to be in the line of sight and some vehicles are driving straight through without giving way.” The second related to pedestrian safety on a 200m-long section of Motupipi Street between the end of the footpath and Fonterra, which she said is “a narrow strip” between the white line and the ditch. Dave explained that, when the road was reconfigured some years ago, the original plans indicated a wider footpath, but this had not been implemented. In both cases, it was agreed that TDC’s transportation engineer Robert Deck would be asked to review and report. Action Sheet A review of the Action Sheet included items already covered in the meeting plus a couple of other live issues: Dave queried when the council’s promised review of the road occupation rules would be carried out. “When is it due to happen?” Abbie provided an update of progress with the MOU – the document that will define the relationship between GBCB and TDC. “I’ve not heard back from the LGC [Local Government Commission] yet but it’s still with the council’s governance team for review. GBCB member Grant Knowles offered to chase up a response from the LGC. The meeting ended, as it began, with Chris reciting a karakia. The next meeting of GBCB is on Tuesday 14 June at 9.30am, Golden Bay Service Centre, Takaka, and on Zoom.

NEWS IN BRIEF Tom Sturgess’ U3A presentation SUBMITTED

Since 1996, when Tom Sturgess and his family arrived from the United States, Golden Bay has been his home. He is an investor, farmer, businessman (MBA Harvard), and philanthropist. Tom will speak at a U3A meeting on Friday 20 May about the establishment and ongoing work of the Golden Bay Community Trust, of which he is a founding member. The Trust ensures that Golden Bay residents benefit from a share of the proceeds of local aquaculture. As a proprietor of five sheep and cattle farms across the South Island and a self-described advocate of sustainable and regenerative farming, Tom will also talk about the story of Methane Mitigation Ventures (MMV), a company he established to address the ever-increasing importance of reducing our country’s farming emissions footprint. MMV, in collaboration with MPI, is conducting a two-year trial to test the effectiveness on-farm of a combination of natural feed additives, including seaweed, to reduce methane emissions from ruminant farm animals, such as sheep, beef and dairy cattle. “Golden Bay Community Trust and sustainable farming in NZ”, a U3A presentation by Tom Sturgess, Senior Citizens’ Hall, Friday 20 May, 10.30am.

Conferences are taking place in almost every corner of Aotearoa New Zealand, part of an unprecedented series of global conferences exploring the inherent oneness of humanity and the contribution each of us can make for the betterment of the world, and for our neighbourhoods. Human society advances and progresses when the qualities of co-operation and mutual assistance are drawn upon. These conferences provide a concrete process for that to happen. They also enable the participants to gain insights from the Baha’i community-building activities and perspectives on: • Transcending differences: finding common ground on which to build our communities together. • Building a unified vision amongst diverse beliefs and backgrounds. • Recognising oneness: the inherent oneness of humanity as a means for social progress. • Developing qualities for service to our community. All well-wishers of humanity are invited to join in the Golden Bay Conference which will look into building our collective capacity to transform ourselves and society. It promises to be a joyful, creative and inspiring time together, with a fun-filled children’s programme running concurrently. In the afternoon session on Saturday all will have a chance to try felting and create a collaborative artwork. All food will be provided by the Baha’is of Tasman. https://conferences.bahai.org.nz/ Golden Bay’s World Conference is on Friday 28 May (evening) and Saturday 29 May. See advertisement on page 14.

New bag limits for finfish, baitfish JOYCE WYLLIE

Under regulation changes, from 5 May, daily limits on recreationally caught finfish now include species that previously had no limit. Of over 1,000 finfish species found in New Zealand waters, only 43 species have been subject to a daily recreational fishing limit, leaving the rest open to overfishing. For the Top of the South Island (Challenger Fisheries Management Area) all finfish species, including those with individual species limit, are now part of a combined daily bag limit of 20 finfish per person, per day. Finfish species with individual bag limits are also included in this daily total. Specified baitfish and freshwater eels are not included, and have their own separate limits additional to the combined daily bag limit. In addition to the combined daily bag limit for finfish, fishers may take: Six freshwater eels per person, per day, as part of the eel daily bag limit, plus 50 specified baitfish per person per day as part of the baitfish daily bag limit. “This puts an end to excessive take, which could affect the sustainability of a species and also makes the rules more consistent across the country and easier to follow,” says Oceans and Fisheries Minister David Parker. An example of a species with an individual daily limit is kingfish, which has a daily limit of three per angler. These individual limits have been retained but are now included within the combined daily bag limit. For example, a fisher in the Auckland/Kermadec, Central or Challenger areas can take three kingfish and up to 17 other finfish to make up their daily limit of 20. Southern bluefin tuna, which has a daily limit of one per person per day, will now be included in the amateur regulations. Previously, anyone taking excess southern bluefin tuna received a warning or faced prosecution, but now Fisheries Officers will be able to issue infringement notices. Public consultation on the changes ran from 6 October to 18 November 2021 and Fisheries New Zealand received 1,467 submissions from across a wide range of interests. Updates and information about these changes, including the specified baitfish species, can be found on the Ministry of Primary Industries website: https://www.mpi.govt.nz/ recfishing-consultation. To keep up to date with the rules, download the free NZ Fishing Rules App at www.mpi.govt.nz/rules.

REVIEW BY ELEANOR WILSON

A little while ago, Anne Tyler suggested that her career as a writer might be over. To the delight of her readers, this proved not to be so, and French Braid, her latest novel, is at the top of the list of bestsellers. It is the story of a Baltimore family through six decades, and has the characteristics one expects from an Anne Tyler novel: perceptive observation of everyday details that makes them significant, and a deep understanding of human relationships, written in a light and clear style. The year is 1959 and the Garrett family, the owners of Wellington’s Plumbing Store in Baltimore, are taking their first – and only – holiday at Deep Camp Lake. Seventeenyear-old Alice, responsible and efficient, co-operates happily with holiday arrangements, 15-year-old Lily sulks at being separated from her boyfriend, but quickly finds a new romantic interest, while seven-year-old David, rather fearful of the water, creates his own imaginary world. Their parents, Robin and Mercy, enjoy the holiday in different ways. Robin, at first finding it difficult to adapt to so much free time, eventually finds a kindred spirit with whom to discuss “sewage or something”. Mercy takes the opportunity to wander off freely and paint – for which she has talent. Anne Tyler’s description of the holiday – the unfamiliar accommodation at first creating a sense of unease, and the gradual adjustment to the casual holiday lifestyle is typical in its detail, picking out apparently ordinary features and showing their significance. During the years that follow, the family increases and has its share of misunderstandings and crises as well as celebrations. The author’s skill is in making these moments part of everyday life, important but rarely dramatic. For instance, when the children have grown up and left home, Mercy feels the need to gain some independence and fulfill her ambition to paint. She gradually equips a modest rented room as her studio where she eventually spends most of her time. This is truly important for her. She still loves her husband, and her behaviour is accepted by her family without fuss. There is even a conventional Golden Wedding family party, which is a quiet success. The five people who shared a once-in-a-lifetime holiday grow up and grow old in a way that is completely consistent with the earlier life. This is often moving. There is something profound in observing intimately the passing of time and its effect on ordinary human beings. Strong, capable parents inevitably decline and the children take over the key roles in the family. This is a truly absorbing and quietly powerful story. At the end, the reader feels completely involved in the family history – and part of the strength of the novel is that the last page implies a warm sense of continuity through years to come.

A new season of junior and youth football got underway at Golden Bay Rec Park last Saturday. The day’s action began at around 9am with the “First Kicks” programme for the youngest players and ended just after 2.30pm with the last kick of the women’s second XI match. Amongst those eager to learn the basics in the four- to fiveyear-old group were Ava Smith and John Lamont who soon picked up the skill of passing the ball between them. Six-yearold James Langford, a football first-timer, was especially keen to get started. “Last night he slept in his shinpads,” said mum Abbie. The First Kicks programme caters for kids between the ages of four to eight years-old – and there were quite a few of them running around the mini-pitches on Saturday morning. “We’ve got 76 doing First Kicks – well up on last year,” said Golden Bay Association Football Club president Phil Smith, who was keeping an eye on the well-organised chaos. The young players are divided by age into subgroups each with a dedicated coach. Looking after the five- to seven-yearolds, Jess Jacquier was impressed by her charges. “There’s a lot of potential here.” Vinny Astill’s eight-year-olds were also showing promise. “It’s going to be a great season,” said Vinny. Phil explained the importance of developing the young players through the programme. “This is the foundation of the club. We keep the kids engaged and then the eight-year-olds can join the travelling teams.” Three of the Bay’s travelling youth teams were playing at home on Saturday: the 10th grade Weka Warriors; the 11th grade Orcas; and the 13-14th grade Pumas. The two younger sides were playing teams from Nelson Suburbs, while the Pumas lined up against FC Nelson. In the

absence of pre-season grading games, the first three fixtures of the season are being used to refine the allocation of the teams to the appropriate level, so it was not unexpected to see some lop-sided results: While the Wekas narrowly lost 4-5, the Orcas and Pumas both suffered heavy defeats, but all Golden Bay’s teams showed grit and determination. Wekas’ coach Dave Lewis was overjoyed just to see players back on the pitch. “It’s awesome – it’s just about being normal and playing football on a Saturday.” And he was equally pleased with his warriors who, despite only having one training session, have progressed from last year. “It’s a good little team; the skill levels are really good.” Speaking after the Orcas’ match coach Cory Griffiths said of his team: “They kept their chins up and played ‘till the last.” Pumas’ coach Flori Dahl said he couldn’t fault the effort and the attitude shown by his players. “They never gave up; they kept going to the end.” He explained that his was a young squad. “We’re playing in the top 13-14th grade, but most of our players are 11 and 12.” Kicking off at 1pm, and playing competitive football for the first time, GBAFC Women’s Second XI Wahine Toa got off to a flying start against visitors from Tahuna thanks to a goal from Jess Currin-Steer after two minutes. It started a bit of a goal rush; within seven minutes the home side were three-nil up. Tahuna looked a bit shell-shocked but they clawed their way back into the match to level the score after 25 minutes. All the while, Wahine Toa kept creating chances, hitting the woodwork on more than one occasion, but finally regained a one-goal advantage on the approach of half-time. The second half began with the home side dominating possession, and carving out goal-scoring opportunities, but the final finish eluded them. What they needed was a bit of...

For the last 20 minutes Wahine Toa continued to press and netted a further brace to take the final score in their competitive debut to 7-3. Coach Richard Price was clearly delighted with the result – and the performance.“I think they’ve done terrifically. They work so hard in training. I’m very proud of them.” G o l d e n B ay Wo m e n’s first XI, the Shield Maidens, travelled over the Hill for a clash with FC Nelson. It proved to be a frustrating afternoon, according to coach Phil Smith. “The scoreline [7-0 loss] definitely does not represent the game.

Youth rugby kicks off in Tākaka

Jack Holland scores for Tākaka U14s against Waimea Old Boys. JO RICHARDS

Youth rugby kicked off a new season last Saturday with two Tākaka teams in action at the Rec Park. The U12 squad up against the Wanderers scored two tries and conceded four, giving victory to the visitors at the end of a closely fought contest. Speaking after the match, Tākaka coach Jim Thomas said it was a “good, fast game” and was upbeat about the coming season. “The team did very well for their first game. There’s lots of potential.” On the adjacent pitch Tākaka U14s were involved in a highscoring match with Waimea Old Boys. The home side scored six tries but were outdone by the visitors who eventually triumphed with a final score of 36-51. Co-skippers of the Tākaka side Gordy Langford and Archie Darwen were disappointed with the result but took some positives from the game. “We played alright,” said Gordy. “We had some good turnovers but needed more support.” Archie thought the side improved as the match unfolded. “We had a good second half.” Other Tākaka teams enjoyed mixed fortunes in their away fixtures: the U10s secured a win against Riwaka, the U13s lost Tākaka aim to stop a Wanderers’ attack in the U12s match. to Nelson; and the seniors beat Nelson 52-24.

Folk dancing in full swing at the recent Sustainable Living Centre Harvest Festival. Photo: Sol Morgan. SOL MORGAN

The weather turned on a great day for the annual Harvest Festival at the Sustainable Living Centre on 30 April. It’s part of the centre’s kaupapa to celebrate the main harvest season with a community gathering, bringing people together to have fun, connect, enjoy local entertainment and eat yummy local kai, and the event once again achieved its goal. Martine Baanvinger, the event organiser and centre coordinator, hailed it a great success and that she is already looking forward to next year’s festival. “This well-known annual fundraiser always pulls a great crowd. And this year was no exception.” Local musicians, poets and storytellers entertained the crowd all afternoon and evening. Throughout the day, Purple expertly managed the entertainment and his sound system to great effect. “The folk dancing led by Kevin Durkan was a true hit, with lots of laughter and connection for all ages,” said Martine. Victoria’s children’s tent was on site to cater for smaller children needing quiet times to explore, connect and create. Larger children obviously enjoyed other activities such as apple bobbing, or simply had fun running around the parklike grounds as happy kids do. The food stalls served delicious local seasonal meals and

drinks for all to enjoy. Soups of kale and potato, and pumpkin and chestnuts were popular with freshly baked bread. A range of crumbles made from apples, pears, figs and feijoas – along with fruit-filled bliss balls – added a desert offering. Wood-fired pizza from the cob oven proved a hit for the evening fair. “The food seemed to satisfy participants’ taste buds and tummies. It certainly did mine,” said trustee Murray Rogers. As the evening arrived, the event site was beautifully lit up with lights, creating a “hyggelig” [soothing conviviality] scene enjoyed by people chatting around the braziers or dancing to the tunes. “Great to see so many people enjoying themselves in a wholesome way,” said Murray. Participant Warwick Marshall acknowledged the festival as “a seasonally appropriate cultural event that integrates the entire community”. “I find great solace in attunement to the seasonal cycles of gardening, so I welcome wholesome social festivities that celebrate the bounty of our summer harvest. Yet again, that was exactly what I found at the Harvest Festival this year. It’s always a favourite for me.” Murray said that the three winners of a raffle each received generous prizes to augment their winter gardens, and that the event raised over $3,000 after expenses.

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.

The upcoming tour features Miles alongside bandmate and guitar maestro Chris Armour, playing re-imagined acoustic versions of previously released songs and forthcoming singles.
