Red Hats in the pink

Last week, the Motueka Red Hat group gathered at the Bethany Motor Camp in Kaiteriteri for a morning of fun, laughter and fellowship. The women dressed up in their red hats and pink clothing - organised a BBQ brunch for its members as part of the Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer appeal. On the day, $480 was donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation. Some of those who attended the event have had to deal with breast cancer in the past, while others have lost family members and friends to New Zealand’s third most common cancer. The organisers were, from left (with their Red Hat nicknames), Barbara Goodman (Princess Twinkle Toes), Maureen Wootten (Movie Mother), Lorraine McKenzie (Ladylovemylife) and Suzie Jullian (Fairmaidenlaughalot). This local group - also known as the Motueka Pacific Roses - is affiliated with the international Red Hat Society, a social organisation that’s a non-profit making, non-fundraising group of fun-loving women founded in 1998 in the USA.

Tasman youth councillors have attended their first formal Council committee meeting, joining Tasman’s elected councillors to discuss topics ranging from sport and recreation programmes through to online voting. Jade Heath-Keen, a year 12 student from Motueka High School, and Connor Betts, year 9 at Golden Bay High School, sat at the Council table and had speaking rights at the Community Development Committee meeting on 31 May. It was the first time youth councillors have had the opportunity to take part in a formal committee meeting, although they have participated in Community Board meetings since last year. Jade said: “I really think this is an excellent opportunity for our youth to get involved in important community matters, and I really appreciated the respect for what I had to say from a youth perspective.” Community Partnerships Officer Lani Evans says: “Attending committee meeting and interacting with elected councillors gives our youth councillors the opportunity to learn how local government works and how to best represent youth in order to make a difference.” The Tasman Youth Council provides opportunities for young people to bring the needs and concerns of youth to the attention of local government and community organisations, as well as providing training and experience in civics and leadership. For information visit ; the Tasman Youth Council website, , or the Tasman Youth Council Facebook page.

Aquaculture lab to open doors for students to local industry

Last Friday at 6am over 60 enthusiastic manawhenua, students, parents, teachers and supporters braved the dark and the cold to be part of the official blessing of Golden Bay High School’s new Aquaculture Lab – Ahu Moana. The newly refurbished and equipped Aquaculture lab has been in genesis for 14 years and with its new facilities including salmon farm equipment, it is a welcomed development for students, teachers and local marine industry alike. The subject of Aquaculture has been offered to year 12/13 students, by the school, for the past few years, however, it was always on the cards to invest money in developing a better equipped and multifunctional Aquaculture Lab that would have fish breeding capability. “With this new lab every student will now have the opportunity to learn both aqua related and other sciences in state

of the art facilities,” said Principal Linda Tame. “There is a thriving science culture at our school, our students take a keen interest across the science subject areas and this new development is a natural extention of that.” With the new fish breeding tanks and equipment, the students will be able to work with the evolving of fish from eggs to adulthood. They plan to start with salmon and will install larger tanks as they grow. The Aquaculture Lab development has been achieved through a collaborative community; funded by the Ministry of Education and supported by manawhenua and local marine industry players. “We are proud that we can support their needs; the provision of this facility is a progressive and modern step to matching learning to life after school in the adult world.” It is not only the students who stand

to gain with the resulting learning that will arise from the new facility, but local industry and business that is marine based welcome this type of study as it will hopefully provide them with knowledgeable employees in the future. The Golden Bay area is synonymous with the marine industry and some students are currently undertaking skippering and VHS radio marine training, the new lab will support such learning. “We thank all those involved in the development of and the blessing of this great new facility. We are excited to be customising the curriculum to tie in with actual industry and so make outside partnerships and real jobs and training a possibility.” Photos: above, the Dawn Blessing of the Aquaculture lab.

World War 1 medals claimed Last week the Guardian featured a report telling the story of how a local Motueka Valley resident found a collection of medals and a photograph of their owner at the local refuse centre. The article appealed for readers to help with any information about David Byrne or on any living relative to whom the medals could be returned to and now thanks to some of

our readers, it seems that the medals will be returned to his granddaughter, in Australia. In response to this, The Guardian had Diane Street and Anne McFadgen emailed with information they had found on Ancestry. com which revealed more details on who he was and his descendants. The photo of David and of his medals that featured in the article were also on the website. The

information gleaned states that David Byrne was a Scotsman born at Coatbridge, Lanark, Scotland, on 2 February 1896. As already clarified he was in the Royal Engineers with the British Army during WW1. It appears David lived in Scotland for most of his life, but seems to have spent his later years in Wellington, where he died at Petone on 29 December 1974. His wife Bridget

nee Murphy died in Scotland in 1965 and it is perhaps likely David came over to NZ to be with family at that stage. His daughter Catherine Watts nee Byrne is recorded as dying at Richmond, New Zealand in 2010. One of the local women who supplied this information emailed the women who had uploaded David’s details onto the Ancestry site and it resulted she was David’s granddaugh-

ter. She has since contacted The Guardian and is very keen to have the precious medals and photo sent to her in Australia. The local man who had found the medals heard of this update and was thrilled that the granddaughter will now be reunited with her grandfather’s medals. It is thanks to this vigilant local and Guardian readers that these medals and the Byrne family will be reunited.

Thinking beyond for the next step Two Librarians have dedicated time to put together a series of life skills talks, Opportunities Beyond School, for year 12 and 13 students of Motueka High School. The talks are intended to better equip students with practical knowledge of a variety of life situations when they step out into the wide world. The programme began early June and will continue through August with scheduled sessions in the school hall. Motueka Branch Librarian Janine Gillions and Motueka High School Librarian Michele Ayres have partnered with local business figures from our community to provide a programme of talks and sessions that aim to help youth prepare for leaving school and becoming independents. The topics range from job seeking, woofing, CV’s, interviews, renting and managing money to tips on taking a gap year. A couple of years ago, these two inspiring women saw a gap in the education of youth who are about to embark on the start of their personal adult journeys and became passionate about how they could help best prepare them. They approached knowledgeable locals who have been incredibly supportive and enthusiastic. “We have had full support from all the professionals involved, teachers, Tasman District Libraries Manager, Glennis Coote, Motueka High School principal John Prestidge. and Noel

Living the change Living the Change is a New Zealand based and made feature film that looks at everyday New Zealanders who are pioneering change in their lives to create a more sustainable and regenerative life. Imagine Theatre is proud to be showing this film in Motueka at 7:30 pm, on Thursday 21 June.

Leeming who have sponsored the talks with a smartphone that can be won through a draw,” said Michele. Local speakers include Glyn LewisJones from Castle Trust who will help pupils understand the minefield of personal finance and tips on managing money. Work and Income’s Cherie Tawhai and Trina Whiteside will talk about job skills and study support. Steve and Judy Richards from Jester House will speak about job seeking skills, dress codes and woofing, Cliff Satherley from Motueka Ray White will discuss renting and flatting, Nigel Rukuwhai from AMP Insurance will talk about careers in Insurance. In addition, the librarians have dedicated digital and general resources that pupils can access to help them with such life skills. From books to ebooks on writing CV’s to renting, making travel plans and more, between them

the libraries have information the pupils will need to assist with digital and financial literacy. Lynda The most recent addition to these resources is the digital resource, which any library member can access. Lynda. com offers 1000’s of online courses on a wide range of topics

from job and business skills to web design, animation, game art, computing, CAD, music and more. “Our libraries can take an active role in listening to what our youth need and help them take their next steps; we can be part of that drive. Students will be given a questionnaire to complete after the talks as we are interested in knowing

what has been useful and what more information they feel would be helpful. We want to achieve a heightened profile of the Library to this group while providing quality lifelong learning.” said Janine. Parents are also welcome to attend the sessions that are promoted through the school notices, website and Facebook pages.

150th Anniversary This Labour weekend a very special 150th-anniversary celebration will be taking place in the Motueka Valley. Ngatimoti School has delivered 150 years of primary education in the Motueka Valley and it is worthy of celebration. Ngatimoti School has always had a strong community presence and over the years has continued to offer a range of positive learning opportunities and an awareness for the environment and the people in it. “Families have come and gone, but interestingly many past students have returned to raise their children in Ngatimoti, as the education, the connections and the values at Ngatimoti are held dear,” said a spokeswoman for the school. Of the current roll, close to twenty percent have direct connections to past pupils. “There are even some students who are the fourth generation to attend the school. Local names like Brereton, Beatson and Knowles have been on the roll for much of the time that the school has been open.” The organising committee for the 150th anniversary welcomes contributions of photos and sto-

guardian the


ries from past staff or students as they compile a memorial booklet and prepare to mount a photographic exhibition which they hope will prompt memories, and provide an opportunity for discussion and laughter. The school has a tradition of providing quality education to the students. S. Poole, the examiner in 1884, a time when compliance was strongly valued, reported to the Chairman of the Education Committee that “the behaviour of the children was all that could be desired and that the discipline was remarkably good”. The prizes awarded by this examiner include surnames familiar to locals. “Current educational philosophies might have a different emphasis, but Ngatimoti School continues to provide an excellent education for the students in its care, embracing its roots in the past while it supports the students to reach for the future.” Expressions of interest to attend the 150th celebrations on Saturday, October 20, should be made by phoning the school or by emailing office@ngatimoti.

Proud members

Photo: Member volunteers cleaning up at Kaiteriteri Beach and estuary. Queen’s birthday weekend saw over 30 members of the Nelson Tasman NZ Motor Caravan Association put on high Vis vests and commit themselves to a cleanup of the Kaiteriteri Beach and estuary areas. Several bags of rubbish, a car tyre and a wooden pallet were amongst the rubbish removed from this beautiful area. “It was a worthwhile day for everyone who volunteered their time,” said Chairman David Miller. Each year the members choose an area for clean-up, as part of their ongoing commitment to the local environments which their members enjoy on their stays in self-contained motorhomes and caravans. David said, “as an organisation were proud of our beautiful country and we recognise our responsibility to play a part in keeping it that way.” Recently the members opened up a new caravan park in Motueka and planted over 260 plants to ensure the area has a good looking environment, attracts wildlife and is a place people will want to come and stay. “The club goes out of our way to try and treat the land in which we stay with respect and have respect for the wider area which our members visit,” said David. In order to become a member of the national organisation or join a local club, all the motorhomes or caravans a member will use has to undergo a self-containment test and be validated with a certi-

fied sticker for display, before their membership will be activated. In this way, the club can be assured that all their members leave behind is a good impression with the businesses and operators with which they spend money and with the residents living in the community. “The self-containment test actually has very specific and strict rulings. The tests can only be carried out by a certified club testing officer and are validated to a certain date,” David explains. The testing officers also have to undergo formal training to be able to carry out the test. Amongst other requirements, the vehicle has to ensure it can contain its own water waste, have toilet and cooking facilities, and its own water supply. “In this way, if a member does decide to camp in a reserve area or somewhere other than one of our many parks, then they can ensure their presence does not negatively affect that area.” David explains this rigorous approach is all part of the association’s attitude to preserving our environment and the good name of the club and its members, as far as camping is concerned. A reputation they have a right to be proud of and that is highly spoken of in Tapawera in particular as the club hold their Music in the Mountains event there each year and bring between $30 and $40,000 to the area and its schools. “We are glad that our members can bring positive and progressive ethics to camping,” David concluded.

The last battle

The Tasman District Council has engaged contractors to remove the 118-year-old Golden Bay Grandstand, however, work that was to begin this week has now been postponed. The council says the contractor has advised that they will not be able to begin work as planned but a new date for the removal will be set once the contractor is ready to proceed. The planned demolition has sparked a vocal and active response from locals in the community and further afield, including the Golden Bay Grand Stand Community Trust and Golden Bay Agricultural and Pastoral Association, who have campaigned for the historic Grandstand to remain. Last Tuesday, 200 people turned out for a spirited protest. Over 1000 signatures in support of keeping the grandstand were presented to Tasman District Council (TDC) at the recent full council meeting. “Volunteers are caring for the site while it is under imminent threat of demolition. Support teams are helping those volunteers. The community knows that its grandstand is too important a facility to abandon to unreasonable decisions taken in Richmond,” said a campaign spokesperson. The council say that the demolition will take place in accordance with the conditions set by Heritage New Zealand, with an archaeologist overseeing the work. Security fences will be installed around the work site to ensure public safety while the removal takes place. Tasman Mayor Richard Kempthorne said the grandstand’s removal would allow the remaining works needed for the Rec Park Centre development to be completed and the building to gain Code Compliance. “The fact the facility is already being well-used and participation in several sports codes is growing shows how greatly needed it is.” Richard said while he was sympathetic to those who have fought passionately to retain the grandstand, there had been several opportunities over the past year to negotiate a restoration proposal with the Council that could have

allowed the two buildings to co-exist. “We have been very clear from the start of this debate – which only began once construction on the new facility was underway - that any plan to keep the grandstand must not jeopardise the completion of the $4 million community asset the District’s ratepayers and the Golden Bay community has invested in. The Environment Court decision in 2017 upheld our ability to remove the grandstand and noted its loss must be balanced against the considerable gains to the community that the new facility would bring.” Opposition says that TDC staff have consistently given councillors false information on which to base their decisions, regarding the grandstand. “A 2017 engineer’s report rated the grandstand at approximately 45% NBS and as such it requires no seismic strengthening yet the TDC staff report to the recent full council referred only to an earlier initial seismic assessment stating ”with previous advice saying the building is less than 34% compliance with earthquake-proof standards,” said Hazel. The council announced this week that they are aware the two groups have initiated judicial review proceedings in the High Court to challenge decisions about the grandstand. Trustee Hazel Pearson stated, “The Trust has been reluctant to pursue expensive legal proceedings. It really is a last resort for a voluntary community group when all attempts to make Council see sense have failed. Wherever possible the Trust has tried alternatives. This has included detailed work on a Trust restoration plan for the grandstand that was rejected by Council. Then the Grandstand Restoration Society was formed and the Trust willingly stepped back to see if the Restoration Society’s proposals could be the basis for an agreed outcome and mended relationships with Council. Sadly, those proposals were also rejected on 24 May 2018 by Council in a climate where incomplete information was presented to councillors by council staff.” The Council is seeking legal advice, but in the meantime, its decision to remove the building remains in effect.

Private, qualified, peoplefocussed and professional I’ve always had a passion for the health and fitness industry and helping others, so I combined the two and in 2007 I gained my Certificate in Exercise Science which enabled me to work as a qualified personal trainer. I was fascinated by this field of work so continued my studies gaining a Diploma in Applied Fitness in 2008 and a Bachelor of Sport and Recreation in 2010. This expanded my knowledge and has given me the skills to deliver comprehensive training programmes, individualised nutrition plans, and to work with the full spectrum of the population while managing a successful business. I opened my private personal training studio in 2012 where I have worked from for the past six years. I am a registered personal trainer and belong to the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs). REPs aim to provide clarity to those seeking a trainer on their level of qualification and ensures that trainers are upskilling and keeping current as well as maintaining a comprehensive first aid certificate. For more information check out the website

recently helped Glenda Lovell complete her skills active qualification at EHF too. I absolutely love my job and I love being able to share this facility with local personal trainers so that collectively we can help create a healthier, happier community.

Accredited trainer and advisor Over the past six years I completed qualifications to become an accredited boot camp and outdoor group trainer, a diet and nutrition advisor, nutrition for conception, pregnancy and lactation advisor, and most recently I have just completed my 200hr yoga teacher training. If you are looking to start working with a trainer, I would highly recommend asking what qualifications they have and what they do to keep current and most importantly, keep you safe! Helping people succeed I love to help new personal trainers succeed and have guided an Auckland University student through his final paper which included work experience at EHF and more

Food with integrity Excellent quality food. Creative presentation. Fun locations. It’s all in a day’s work for Cindy Coleman of Food for Thought Catering, who is a born and bred “non-foodie” from Riwaka. “Good food is part of my holistic approach to wellbeing. Other people might call me a foodie, but growing my own food is what I’ve always done. And I prefer a simple approach to eating, which is reflected in my catering philosophy.” Food For Thought Catering has been around for more than 14 years in this area. Cindy’s passion and integrity means that she’ll meet and satisfy your cuisine needs to an exceptional degree. From an attractive and delicious selection of handmade finger foods to a customised menu, Cindy promotes healthy, fresh food using only the very best ingredients. You won’t find any instant mixes or bulk food anywhere on Cindy’s fabulous menus! Locally-grown produce “It’s all fresh and hand-selected. I prefer locally-grown produce from the Nelson, Tasman and Motueka regions, and some of the produce is homegrown and spray-free, too.” Every event is unique - whether it’s catering for a party or work function, spectacular food for a wedding or special celebration. Satisfying the clients’ needs

Cindy at home with some of the spray-free fare from her garden.

“We’ve had lots of different requests from clients in the past: from catering for a 100% organic wedding to catering for large events on beaches and in barns.” Food For Thought is happy to go wherever you need good food served, be it at home, under a marquee or at an informal BBQ. “We have the

equipment needed to set up in all locations, together with a spit roaster for larger events,” says Cindy. Creative options “Knowing what the client wants and discussing creative options is what we do best.”

ANZ helping Motueka achieve netball goals The ANZ Premiership is back for a second season and ANZ is asking what Motueka netballer fans and supporters need to achieve their netball aspirations. ANZ spokesman said they are aware of the effort and determination that’s required to get to the top is immense, “but no one achieves on their own, it’s the support that can make the difference in achieving your goals. To celebrate the start of the ANZ Premiership season ANZ is calling for applications for assistance that will help Motueka netball fans achieve their netball aspirations.” The support offered is not limited to kit, it could be anything big, small or off-the-wall. In the past ANZ support has spanned high-performance netball gear, expert coaching, court and club makeovers, to dream experiences. In 2017 one lucky young player was granted the opportunity to be the mini-manager of an ANZ Premiership team for a day as a reminder to continue working hard and not give up on your netball dreams. And a long-serving coach was surprised by stars of ANZ Premiership and awarded a trip to watch the Silver Ferns play in Australia, as a thank you for her commitment and inspiration she has provided to her teams over the years. Over the past five years, ANZ has supported teams, clubs, schools and players all over New Zealand to the value of nearly $500,000. Sue McGregor, ANZ Head of Sponsorship, said, “We are proud to support netball at every level, from grassroots right up to the elite ANZ Premiership and Silver Ferns. We know sometimes all you need is just that little bit of extra help to achieve your goals, so we are committed to helping as many netball fans as we can.” Motueka netball clubs, teams, players and fans can tell ANZ what they need to help achieve their netball goals at

Cool runnings Parklands School, Motueka, pupils recently enjoyed their annual fun run. “I went on the fun run and I ran a lot. I was very fast, and I passed a lot of runners. It was a very long way. I finished second. I was really tired but happy! I was really excited,” said room 5’s, T Wickliff. The school went on to have 34 students participate in the Motueka Interschool Cross Country at Rabbit Island, held on Friday, 1 June. The organisers changed the course, it was exactly 1km per lap and was more challenging than other years. Year 5 and 6 students ran 2 laps and the Year 7 and 8 students 3 laps. “Congratulations to all students who participated, you represented Parklands School well. A special mention to the Year 7 Girls Team who was placed third in their team event. Also congratulations to Rosemary T who ended in the top 10 in her category and will represent Motueka Schools at the next event,” said a school spokesperson.

AgRecovery chemical collection

Dinghy Found at Grossi Point

Significant construction work is underway in Stephens Bay to upgrade sewer pump stations at the Stephens Bay Reserve and Tapu Bay Reserve. The work is the second stage of a major wastewater project to increase the capacity and efficiency of the wastewater network in the area. The first stage was the installation of a new sewer main in the Riwaka-Kaiteriteri Road from Cederman Drive to Goodall Road, replacing the existing pipe under the Tapu Bay estuary. Moving the pipe into the road means it is easier to maintain and protects the estuary from any accidental spills or overflows. The two pump stations now need to be upgraded to push wastewater in the opposite direction – to the new main in the road. The work at the two reserves will take until July to complete and will mean some disruption to access. Some parking spaces at Stephens Bay and an area to the north of Tapu Bay reserve will be fenced off while construction is carried out. There will also be some construction traffic on the roads around Stephens Bay. People using the reserves should take care when accessing the steep access road to Tapu Bay Reserve and be aware there is construction taking place.

Book in by 19 June 2018 and AgRecovery will dispose of your unwanted agrichemicals for free. Storing old or unwanted agrichemicals on farms creates unnecessary risks to staff, family, livestock, pets and the environment. Rural recycling programme Agrecovery has partnered with the Tasman District Council to collect and safely dispose of farm chemicals in the region this month. The Agrecovery chemical collection programme collects and safely disposes of old agrichemicals. Some chemicals need to be sent to France for high-temperature incineration and collections can usually only be carried out in each region every one to two years. The programme has recovered more than 100 tonnes of unwanted agrichemicals since it began 11 years ago. It is funded by voluntary levies paid by 60 manufacturers of agrichemical, animal health and dairy hygiene products - enabling Agrecovery to provide these programmes to farmers and growers free of charge. Products from participating brands are free to dispose of through the scheme. For non-funded products, user-pays fees apply. Book a collection: Book via the Agrecovery website, by phoning 0800 247 326 or by emailing

The Harbourmaster is looking for the owner of a homemade fibreglass dinghy left at Grossi Point in Mapua. The 3-metre long dinghy was found on 30 May. If it is yours, or you know who owns it, please contact us so it can be returned. Phone Deputy Harbourmaster Jimmy Mackay on 027 611 0804.

Temporary water chlorination Kaiteriteri Short-term chlorination of Kaiteriteri's water is planned to ensure a safe supply while water infrastructure work is carried out over the next few months. We are building a water treatment plant in Riwaka, and in July the plant will be commissioned and begin supplying treated water to Kaiteriteri. During the commissioning phase, the emergency chlorination system will be turned on to make sure it works. The chlorination will probably occur for no more than a week.

Special Grants Fund open for applications The Special Grants Fund, designed to encourage and support significant new events or projects within Tasman District, is now open for applications. The fund allows us to provide a larger financial contribution (upwards of $10,000) to special events that will benefit our community, providing a range of opportunities and experiences to residents and visitors. Up to $50,000 is available each year, providing we make a surplus as a result of extra growth throughout the District. In years where there is no surplus, Special Grants funding will not be offered. Find out more: You can read more about the criteria and application process for Special Grants on our website – visit, search term “Special Grants”, or contact Community Partnerships Coordinator Mike Tasman Jones on Ph. 03 543 8400.

Kaiteriteri Wastewater upgrades move into next stage

13 JUNE 2018





They’re coming from far and wide The Abel Tasman Coastal Classic celebrates its 25th anniversary in October and with it another sell out field of trail runners for the iconic footrace from Awaroa to Marahau, along the famed coastal track. What began in 1994, in the infancy of off-road events, quickly established itself as a “must do” amidst New Zealand’s running scene. This year’s event has an even split of men and women competing and has attracted over 40 entrants from overseas, with 90% of the field travelling from outside the Nelson region. Also amongst them will be the two survivors, Chris Gates and Owen Rowse, who are keen to continue their legacy having completed every event. Changes This year’s base switches to Kaiteriteri with pre and post event celebrations held on the Reserve. Kaiteriteri Recreation Reserve CEO, David Ross, welcomes Nelson Events to host the ‘Classic’ bringing a large contingent of competitors and supporters to our golden shores. We already host Kaiteriteri Gold in March each year” he commented, “but now to add another long-standing very successful event is certainly a win-win situ-

ation. Part of our Management Plan, and a very important role is to support appropriate activities which improve recreation

on the Reserve, within Abel Tasman National Park and also the Abel Tasman foreshore scenic reserve. The Classic certainly

envelops all of this, drawing local, national and international visitors who leave certainly convinced that the event logo says it all.’’

‘If anyone ever asks what one event to put on the list for the run of a lifetime. It is the Abel Tasman Coastal Classic.’
