Ma’s Place to open in Motueka Community organisation Ma’s Place is opening in Motueka and on Friday, 8 February from 10am1pm they’re hosting an opening day celebration. Opening Day “We’re really excited to be coming to Motueka. We provide a safe space for families to connect and access support, information and free baby gear and clothing,” says Carol Marshall of Ma’s Place. “We’ve always had mums in Motueka say they wished we had a base there, it always been needed there.” They’ll be located in The Lounge at 15 Greenwood Street and on opening day lots of food, a sausage sizzle and a bouncy castle will be provided. “Families can come

and take what they need from our brand new shed,” says Carol. The baby gear and clothing is donated by families in the community, and is available free of charge. Fun & Friendly Ma’s Place is a fun and friendly community of families who are there to do life with you and share the journey. Mothers and young families are invited to join them for crafts, cooking, fitness and more to learn from one another and build strong relationships. Thriving children Katrina Mister will be leading the Motueka team and Carol says she’s looking forward to supporting families with young children to thrive, not just survive.

Carol Marshall, Jody Harris & Carol’s son Boaz, Tamsin Leenhouwers, Hannah Matthews & Molly, and Katrina Mister are excited Ma’s place is branching out to Motueka.

High St’s traffic woes on agenda The restricted flow on Motueka’s High St has been an on-going issue for around twenty years says Brent Maru, chairperson of Motueka’s Community Board. “It’s a long time to have been waiting for a solution. We’ve had numerous reports and promises made but nothing has been done,” says Brent. Since the change of government, priorities have changed and unfortunately for the township of Motueka, the issue of traffic congestion fell by the wayside. But now a determined group of residents is fighting to have the problem resolved with the help of local MP Damien O’Connor. “Damien fights hard for this region, and although he’s a busy cabinet minister he’s still available to his electorate,” says Brent. Proposed changes include installing pedestrian crossing

lights which will help prevent the traffic flow being constantly stopped by streams of pedestrians in the summer months, the lights will also create traffic gaps further along to allow those joining SH60 easier access. A round-about has long been an idea bandied around for the clock tower corner while an intervention is also being considered for the High St and Whakarewa St intersection. “We need to create interventions that keep the traffic moving and without the town losing any of its carparks,” says Brent. With Motueka’s town centre thriving and traffic volumes only increasing, the contentious problem of grid-locked High St traffic every summer is an issue that needs to be resolved sooner rather than later says Brent.

Injured tramper rescued A Golden Bay tramper was rescued on the evening of Thursday, 31 January after suffering a fall and spending several days stranded on the mountain. The man was reported overdue at 11am on Thursday after he failed to meet his daughter at their agreed pick-up location. The 74-year-old man set off for his hike on Monday at the Cobb Valley Dam, letting his family know he was safe and well on Wednesday. When he didn’t show up to the agreed spot or make contact, the man’s daughter became concerned and rung Police.

A helicopter with a Takaka Police Search and Rescue member and a Motueka Land Search and Rescue volunteer began a search, spotting items from the air on the sides of Mt Lockett. The team landed and began tracking, locating the items and spots of blood. They soon located the missing tramper, who had fallen down the face of the mountain, suffering lacerations and bruised ribs. The man had been in that situation since Tuesday and was very sunburnt and dehydrated when the crew located him. The rescue helicopter flew the man to Nelson hospital a serious condition.

Golden Bay dairy farmer Stewart Watson has once again qualified for the Tasman Regional Final of the FMG Young Farmer of the Year.

Local farmer in regional final

Golden Bay farmer Stewart Watson is one of eight from across the upper South Island preparing to test their farming skills in the Tasman Regional Final of the FMG Young Farmer of the Year. The hotly-contested event takes place in Culverden on Saturday, 2 March, where contestants will tackle a series of gruelling practical and theoretical modules at the Amuri Showgrounds. It will be followed by a dinner and fast-paced agri-knowledge quiz hosted by Te Radar at the Amuri Area School. The idea behind the contest originally emerged from a quiz show at an agricultural university in California. The show was conducted in semi-slapstick style with a cow on stage and eventually the idea made its way to New Zealand where it was turned into a successful and prestigious event. The first regional final was held in a small hall at the former Lincoln College and broadcast live on radio. The hall was packed and contestants from throughout Canterbury answered questions about a bemused sheep that was on stage. Practical field activities were later added to the contest to ensure the competition represented all-round farming ability and skill. Now it’s considered New Zealand’s ultimate rural challenge inspiring excellence, showcasing

innovation and growing human capabilities. It’s Stewart’s second year in the competition and it’ll be his second regional final, last year he placed 4th. “I’m definitely hoping to do better than last year. I’m 30 and as one of the oldest in the competition I’m hoping it’ll give me an advantage.” Stewart grew up in a farming family in the United Kingdom and is a trained traditional arts blacksmith. Currently he’s an equity partner in a 550 cow dairy farm in Golden Bay, which has a 150-hectare support block. “I love everything about farming but I guess it’s mainly the cows, I love working with cows and being outdoors. Although all aspects of farming interest me.” The Tasman event is one of seven regional finals being held across the country between February and April. The regional winners will face off at the FMG Young Farmer of the Year Grand Final in Hawkes Bay in July where they’ll vie for over $300,000 in prizes. The Grand Final is a full-on two-day event including the practical day which incorporates all the hands-on competition plus technical elements such as a project, interview and HR challenge. “I’d love to make the final,” says Stewart.

Walking into Che Vincent’s gallery located in an old apple shed at Riverside Community housing his latest exhibition, ‘Forest for the Trees’, takes your breath away. The elegant, yet understated space is adorned with copper wall panels skilfully manipulated into various tree themes, apt given the artist’s background in biology. “My passion is around plants and their pattern of growth, the growth of life really. The discovery of those and reinterpreting them,” says Che. For the past six weeks Che has tirelessly worked on the pieces, created from recycled copper of old hot water cylinders. “I decided to indulge myself and do an entire exhibition on trees.” The third-generation Riverside Community member says much of his inspiration comes from the top of the west coast, with its rugged and wild scenery.

Che Vincent among some of the works he’s created for his ‘Forest for the Trees’ exhibition. “That’s my playground.” After establishing the Riverside Café twenty years ago, Che began sculpting and displayed various pieces in the café which resulted in private commissions. “I’d always created things, but just not really sold them. Over the years I’ve taken part in various exhibitions, symposiums and shows.” Now his work adorns homes around the world

with the UK, America and Australia popular destinations for his pieces. Che’s current exhibition will be open for the month of February, seven days each week and around the same hours as Riverside Café. The collection is for sale with prices ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, and a couple have already sold, although all will remain in place for the exhibition’s duration.

Motueka senior constable Grant Heney says surveillance cameras are invaluable for the community.

Cameras play critical part in fight against crime Technology is helping local police in the fight against crime, with the 52 cameras currently installed in Motueka resulting in the apprehension of 118 offenders. “These cameras have changed the whole dynamic of crime in the centre of town. We’ve had an absolutely stunning turnaround in the last few years,” says senior constable Grant Heney. Cameras were initially installed around the town after 18 shop windows were smashed in the High Street during 2001. Tasman District Council put $20,000 into a town security system in a bid to crack down on the “mindless vandalism”. In 2015, the recorders began breaking down and couldn’t be fixed. After being denied funding from the Tasman District Council, the police took it upon themselves to source private funding, managing to acquire $20,000 from local businesses to install 24 cameras. Since then further community funding has led to the acquisition and installation of another 28 cameras, making it impossible to go down the High Street without being caught on film.

“The cameras are such a huge asset to the community. It’s just fantastic how the community’s embraced and got behind it, particularly the local businesses,” says Grant. The cameras record 24/7 and their advanced technology provides exceptionally clear images. “We just don’t have the damage, the assaults, or the cars being broken in to that we used to experience. The whole centre of town is so much safer, it’s incredible.” Among those apprehended are locals, tourists and visiting kiwis, all caught “doing all sorts of stuff”. Assaults, wilful damage and ‘stacks of shoplifters’ top the list, with Nelsonians among those that visit Motueka on shoplifting sprees. Grant says while the cameras aren’t entirely fool-proof there’s an extremely high-chance anyone up to no good in Motueka will be caught. “The community’s done this, they’re the ones that have made it safer for all.” In the past 12 months funding for the cameras has been received from the Lionesses, Red Cross, Lions, Rotary, New World and TDC community funding.

Water pollution is now New Zealanders’ number one concern over cost of living Pollution of our rivers and lakes is worrying New Zealanders more than any other issue, according to just-released public opinion poll results, but here in Motueka and Golden Bay we’re pretty blessed with the health of our local rivers. The only waterway causing concern for the Tasman District Council is the Tukurua Stream in Golden Bay. The findings were revealed in a nation-wide Colmar Brunton poll conducted for Fish & Game New Zealand in December. People were asked how concerned they were about a range of issues, including the cost of living, health system, child poverty and water pollution. Pollution of rivers and lakes was the top concern, with 82 percent saying they are extremely or very concerned about the issue. Only four percent said they were not that concerned. The cost of living is New Zealanders’ number two concern, with 80 percent saying they are extremely or very concerned. The health system was third with 78 percent, followed by child poverty 72 percent, education and climate change both on 70 percent and housing 67 percent. Fish & Game New Zealand chief executive Martin Taylor says the survey’s findings show the depth of feeling New Zealanders have about their rivers, lakes and streams. “Kiwis are extremely worried that they are losing their ability to swim, fish and gather food from their rivers, lakes and streams,” says Martin. “People see those activities as their birth right but over the last 20 years, that right is being lost because the level of pollution in waterways has increased as farming intensifies. This is the second year Colmar Brunton has conducted the survey for Fish and Game. Last year, water pollution was in second place with 75 percent of people expressing concern. Martin Taylor says big agriculture and local government should take note of the fact that the issue is now Kiwi’s top concern. “While many farmers do understand the need for action and are making the necessary changes to how they use their land, there are still significant numbers who are refusing to follow their example,” he says. “These laggards are letting down the responsible farmers, undermining farming’s reputation

Motueka locals Sana Watt and Lucia Young enjoy the clean water of the Motueka River. and exhausting the public’s patience. “They have to be made to change. This means regional and district councils have to toughen the rules, enforce them and stop making excuses for the environmentally destructive and irresponsible farmers in their areas.”

“More Kiwis than ever are now worried about their rivers and lakes. This opinion poll result shows they are fed up and want action on this issue.” The health of the Motueka river is in good condition and the Tasman District Council is determined to keep it this way.

Naturists celebrate 50th anniversary For fifty years naturists have enjoyed one another’s company in the family-friendly, non-judgemental environment of the Nelson Sun Club. Founded in 1969 by a small group on private land around Brightwater, the club later purchased their own land in Upper Moutere, and it’s here it remains today. “This has been the secret to the longevity of the club and today we’re proud to have one of the founding members still actively involved,” says club secretary, Lorraine. The 2.79 hectare property is park-like and allows guests and members to embrace the practices of naturism within a safe and tranquil environment, free of social judgement or unsolicited attention. Over Nelson anniversary weekend around 50 past and present members reunited to celebrate their 50th anniversary. “It was such a good catch up and now a couple of past mem-

There were a lot of games played and all in all it was a full-on fun weekend,” says Lorraine. With a nine-hole golf course, clubhouse and kitchen, solar-

heated swimming pool and a large hot spa the club has plenty to offer say members. Accommodation can be booked in the main clubhouse and the club also offers powered and unpowered camp sites for caravans, motor homes and tents. “We have vacancies for couples and families who are interested in socialising in a healthy, fun group of naturists,” says Lorraine. With relaxed sun-downers a regular occurrence at the club renowned for its tranquillity, it’s easy to understand how they were winners of the Mowlem Trophy for the fastest growing club in 2015.

Luminate festival void of fires Luminate Festival has been in full swing at Canaan Downs -Pikikirunga, Takaka Hill, and this year for the first time there has been no event fires and no circus shows with fire performers. The extreme fire risk in the Nelson-Tasman is being taken very seriously by the festival organisers. Luminate is timed to synchronise with Lunasa - an ancient pagan fire festival traditionally held at the midpoint between summer solstice and autumn equinox. Luminate has a detailed fire safety & response plan, qualified people on the crew who look after fire safety and emergency protocols, and was planning to create several carefully managed fires to offer warmth to people during the 8-day festival, as nights on the mountain can often get cold. The schedule was also due to include fire shows from experienced circus performers, and a fire has always been present at the Welcome Ceremony and at the music zones. Usually Luminate has fire permits and all fires at the event are very well managed. “We have not known conditions to be so hot and dry in all the years we have been running Luminate since 2008. We are not prepared to take any risks,” say organisers. Having no fires at the festival may have felt disappointing to

some participants, however the Luminate management team are putting their care for the environment and for people’s safety at the forefront. Luminate’s team had several meetings with Fire Emergency New Zealand to collaborate on how to maintain a safe environment for all at the festival, given the continuing hot weather. “As kaitiaki of the land we have to take action when environmental conditions require us to, and we are taking extra steps to inform participants about the extremely dry conditions and the need for stepping up personal responsibility around fire safety.” Organisers had a unique opportunity to address most participants at the Welcome Ceremony on Thursday evening from 8pm, where the absence of fire was noticeable. “We embrace this as an important opportunity to offer education around the care and attention needed to minimise any risk of fire, not only at the event but also back in everyday life. We are feeling a strong need to invite participants to align with our approach to managing this situation, to be extra careful with extinguishing cigarette butts, and to be really present to caring for the land and each other.” The festival has a wide range of music, arts, cultural and edu-

cational activities on offer; there were plenty of other things to focus on, and the festival team formed alternative plans with the lighting crews to offer a replacement to the usual fires, so that Luminate continued to shine brightly. Luminate is a transformational festival well renowned globally for its ecological initiatives and its core focus on caring for the earth. Luminate’s purpose is to activate positive change beneficial to the ecology.

“The earth looks after us in so many ways. The earth is asking for help and asking us to support her so she can continue to support us. We have opted to listen to the mother and her needs and are helping her. Fire is important to Luminate and plays a role in our cultural celebration and connection with the earth, and by choosing to not have fires we are offering our support to the earth and caring for our environment.”

2019 Adam Summer School for young musicians

The Adam Summer School is an annual event for young string players and pianists held in Nelson each February. Generously supported by the Adam Foundation, the Summer School celebrates its 25th year in 2019. For the first time since 2013 the Adam Summer School returns to its original home, the Nelson Centre of Musical Arts (formerly the Nelson School of Music) after extensive earthquake strengthening and refurbishment. What better way to mark such a milestone as the course’s 25th anniversary! In fact, some of the connections between the Adam Summer School and the NCMA are even more personal: the NCMA’s Director, James Donaldson, is an alumnus of the Adam Summer School. This year 28 highly-talented young musicians from around New Zealand and Australia have been selected. The students will form seven chamber ensembles, each group working in-depth on a work to present in two final public concerts on Sunday, 17 February. Included will be music by Beethoven, Dvořák, Fauré, Haydn, and Mozart. The tutors are members of the internationally acclaimed New Zealand String Quartet and are Associate Professors and Artists in Residence at the New Zealand School of Music. They are delighted that internation-

ally acclaimed musician Jian Liu, Programme Director of Classical Performance and Head of Piano Studies at New Zealand School of Music, Victoria University of Wellington, will join them as guest piano tutor this year. Elke Dunlop will also join the quartet to offer classes in the Feldenkrais Method of ‘awareness through movement’. Elke’s involvement in movement education spans more than 25 years and includes teaching at Toi Whakaari (NZ Drama School) and The NZ School of Music. The week is intensive – yet rewarding. Many of last year’s participants commented on the satisfaction of giving a successful performance of challenging music. A student of the 2018 Adam Summer School described the course as “an absolutely unique immersive experience where the growth is astonishing.” This year’s school runs from 9-17 February. Final public concerts will be held at 3.30pm and 8pm on Sunday, 18 February, with an admission cost of $20. Daily masterclasses are open to the public free of charge. The 90-minute sessions run at 8pm on Sunday 10th, 4.15pm on Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th, Friday 15th, and Saturday 16th February. All concerts and masterclasses will be at Nelson Centre of Musical Arts, 48 Nile Street, Nelson.

NCMA’s lunchtime concert series returns for 2019 One of the most successful concert series since the Nelson Centre of Musical Arts (NCMA) re-opened last year is back for 2019. Each Thursday lunchtime during school terms one, two & three, NCMA will present a wide range of music to suit all tastes. NCMA Director James Donaldson says, “our lunchtime concerts were a real hit with our audiences last year. Support from Nelson Pine Industries has enabled us to keep tickets affordable and we’re proud of the

variety of music on show. There’s something for everyone.” The Nelson region is awash with talented local musicians, many of whom are the stars of the show for these concerts. This term, audience members can expect to enjoy music from Alan K. Gray on the Cawthron Organ, Anna Maitland, Juliet Ayre, Richard Mapp, Allison Cormack, Trio Jackson and Zeb Wulff. The first concert is on Thursday, 21 February and features Raffaele Bandoli on trumpet and Joel

Bolton on piano. The duo will present a wide range of iconic trumpet music from the 17th – 20th century. Individual tickets are priced at $15 for each concert. Regular concert go-ers can make savings with NCMA’s new concert pass. The concert pass is $100 (+ service fee) per term and allows access to all concerts. More information and tickets for the lunchtime concert series can be found on the ncma website, ncma.nz

From Outward Bound to Tasman Bible Church “It’s all part of an exciting journey in life,” says the new Pastor at Tasman Bible Church and he is ready for the adventures ahead. Greig Caigou comes to the role from 16 years working as a lead facilitator for leadership training programmes at the Anakiwa Outward Bound School. Being self-employed the contract role there was part of a mixed set of other responsibilities that also saw Greig facilitating innovative business events throughout New Zealand for the Young Enterprise Trust. While this is a new direction for him he says the responsibility is “part of a coming home for me . . . to be able to support my local church and be more immersed in the community they serve.” Greig has been based in Mapua for many years but recently moved up the road to Tasman and became really inter-

ested in the Tasman Bible Church which has been such an integral part of the local area since 1932. What began as a small house church meeting in Horton Road soon flourished and the permanent home for the fellowship was built in 1953 on the current site at the corner of Williams and Aporo Rd. Keen involvement in the community has always been a hallmark of the fellowship and in an era now gone that was characterised by the hugely popular Harvest Time services as well as youth events and camps. A school with a Christian based worldview was opened in 1986 and operates to this day. Nowadays the Church engages widely in the community but one highlight for Greig is the Mainly Music programme, which supports young families with a fun music and games event for pre-school-

With morning tea provided, ‘toy time’ and crèche facilities, this gives parents some help with things to do, while bonding with their young ones. Greig started his working life in the Nelson region as a teacher of outdoor education at Waimea College, but later felt a call to missionary work that has taken him to several troubled regions of the world. Once back he has continued

some voluntary time training young leaders from around the world through a wilderness-based course aimed at equipping people, bringing the message and hope that Jesus gives to the world. “For me it makes sense to help share that same good news within my own community,” says Greig, “and anybody is always welcome at Tasman Bible Church.”

NikkiJo Tyrrell - help get her life back via GIVEALITTLE

Even though she’s a local, you’ve probably never seen her around, because NikkiJo Tyrrell spends most of her time struggling with - and recuperating from - medical treatment that isn’t working. Nikki or NJ, as she’s known, has been seriously ill for the past 20 years with Lyme disease and ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis). Once upon a time, Nikki loved riding horses and playing the piano. When she left school she wanted to become a vet. Today she struggles with daily seizures, loss of speech, paralysis, crippling migraines, shocking chemical sensitivities and limbic system dysfunction, insomnia, severe flu-like symptoms, and excruciating pain. The intensive specialised treatment Nikki needs is available in Cyprus, and a group of friends has consequently set up a GIVEALITTLE page to get her there in five weeks’ time. Crowdfunding is urgently needed. For the specialised treatment that Nikki needs, some $80,000 is required to get her to the clinic in Cyprus where other people suffering from similar health condions have regained their quality of life. Nikki will need to be in Cyprus for three months, together with a carer.

Some days I cannot talk. Some days I cannot move. I’m a strong person but there are times - due to the pain that I find myself in a foetal position on the floor, screaming.”

Extreme isolation Her arduous daily struggle with her health has led to extreme isolation. “Her strength to get through each day is heroic, to say the least,” says a friend, Sony Denny of Mapua. “Simple tasks such as having a shower, trying to talk on the phone or have a visitor can cause her symptoms to worsen dramatically. Folks from the Hills Community Church have rallied around to help Nikki with daily tasks.” Once a budding musician, Nikki had to put her entire life on hold when things spiralled out of control with ME and Lyme disease, the symptoms of which first manifested when she was in her last year of school, but only diagnosed 10 years later. “I’m a strong person,” says Nikki, “but there are times I’m in a foetal position on the floor, screaming.” “Put simply, we are at the end of the road with what can be offered in New Zealand,” says Kylie Curwood, a

friend involved in setting up Nikki’s GIVEALITTLE page. Despite all efforts, Nikki is not progressing and is reliant on expensive, intensive, all-consuming daily therapies just to keep her even somewhat functional, but barely. If these are stopped, she goes backwards fast. This is the last ditch and a very necessary effort to give her any kind of life, but without funding she absolutely cannot afford to go. Funds will be used for travel, medical expenses, treatment, facility, carers Nikki is not well enough to travel or go through treatment alone - and for her general upkeep while she is overseas. Nikki and her parents have been struggling with huge annual medical costs that range between $30,000 and $50,000 per year for treatment that barely keeps Nikki functioning. Her parents have supported her financially and paid for Nikki’s treatment since she became ill. “It’s not something they will be able to sustain in the long run,” she acknowledges. “Essentially all their money goes into my treatment. Financially I couldn’t have done it without them.”

Throughout her illness, Nikki has done all she can to self-fund her medical treatment including sharing her music, often from a bedridden state. One such song has taken her four years to record just one take, literally either side of seizures and collapses, barely able to sit upright long enough to get through one take, but she was absolutely determined to make this recording happen.

Long-term goals Despite everything, she’s optimistic. And long term, once she’s well, Nikki plans to help others. “One day I intend to set up a trust fund to support those who - like me - need treatment for invisible diseases.”

Amazing things are happening at our airport

Fixed Wing Pilot Blair Campbell pictured with the Nelson Tasman Air Cessna 172 which is being used for scenic flights around the Top of the South and West Coast.

Things are really taking off at Motueka Airport with the opening of Hangar Round Cafe and Nelson Tasman Air’s unique experiences are proving a popular hit with locals and visitors alike. Fixed Wing Operations Manager Blair Campbell reckons he’s got the best job in the world “I get to showcase this stunning region from the air”. Blair joins the Nelson Tasman Air team with a wealth of tourism and aviation experience having spent over 15 years flying in the Fiordland National Park. Nelson Tasman Air was launched in 2017 by a group of passionate local aviators who set out to “redefine air adventure” and be apart of Motueka’s growing adventure

aviation hub. They opened up shop right next door to their good friends Skydive Abel Tasman and set about combining aviation adventures with popular local experiences such as the Heaphy Track and the Abel Tasman National Park. Blair says the fixed wing scenic flights have been particularly popular this summer “people love getting above it all and seeing diversity of landscapes on offer in this region from the mountains to the golden beaches of the Abel Tasman.” Nelson Tasman Air prides itself on a collaborative approach to building visitor experiences having teamed up with local operators to offer exciting new trips. The collaboration has also seen local outfit Tasman Helicopters operate their helicopter experiences including the popular Fly, Walk & Cruise package which Stuff.co.nz remarked was “possibly NZ’s best new day trip”. Want to hang around? Now there’s coffee too! This year also saw Kylie Odonohue take the reigns of the container cafe Hangar Round which is based right on the airfield with access from College Street. Kylie is serving up all sorts of delicious treats and is

Record investment in low emissions vehicles announced quickly becoming known for her tasty grilled cheese sandwiches. She’s serving premium Flight Coffee from Wellington and has a range of cold drinks available from Foxton Fizz. She’s also baking up a storm with muffins, keto cookies and shortbread to name a few! Kylie is loving the range of activities at the airport “everyday you’ve got people heading off on scenic flights and parachutes landing right in front of the cafe - people get

such a buzz sitting here and watching the action!” Both Nelson Tasman Air and Hangar Round Cafe are operating 7 days a week throughout summer so get along and see what all the fuss is about! Scenic flights are available from just $99 with easy online bookings available at nelsontasmanair.co.nz or by phoning the friendly team on 0508 223 5247. (Material supplied)

Low emission transport will receive a record boost totalling more than $11 million, Energy and Resources Minister Megan Woods has announced. “I’m announcing the largest round of new funding from the Government’s Low Emission Vehicles Contestable Fund yet. “Thirty one exciting new low emissions transport projects will share over $11 million of funding to help more Kiwis make use of new transport technology. “This funding is made up of $4.3 million of government co-funding and $7.3 million of funds from the private sector. That’s a smart investment that means the maximum benefit for the taxpayers spend. “This round of funding focuses on innovative projects that expand the use and possibilities of electric vehicles and other low emissions technology in the transport space. It’s about making new technology available to help Kiwis get around, lower our carbon emissions and contribute to our economy. “From 100% electric campervans for tourists to hydrogen fuel cell powered buses at the Ports of Auckland to solar panel charged electric vehicles

and trial of smart chargers in people’s homes, we’re backing new technologies that will make a difference. “We’re also funding a further 34 new public charging spaces for electric vehicles right around New Zealand, including several at South Island tourism hot-spots. This is about creating a truly national infrastructure of EV charging so that all major trips around our country are available to EV users. “This is by far the biggest round of new projects delivered by the Fund. Each previous round has given the green light to between 14 and 18 projects. In total, the fund has committed $17.2 million in government funding to 93 projects. This is matched by over $45 million applicant funding. “Transport is responsible for about 18% of New Zealand’s total greenhouse gas emissions, so one of the most effective ways for us to help tackle climate change is to transition our fossil-fuelled transport fleet to run on clean, renewable energy sources. By helping to roll out that technology to more people than ever, today’s announcement helps more Kiwis cut their transport emissions.

Proud to support Nelson Tasman Air & Hangar Round Cafe.

Sport Tasman Buddy up for Muddy Fun Peter Jones, Sport Tasman Participants in the popular Marlborough Muddy Buddy fun event often struggle for clear visibility as they slip and slide their way around the mudcovered Havelock course. The same cannot be said of the major benefactors of the 2019 Muddy Buddy, an organisation with a clear eye on the future. Havelock Vision 20:20 are a local charity chosen by Sport Tasman to benefit from this year’s event, planned for Saturday, 16 February. Although the previous two events have had to be postponed, cyclones in the region affecting the viability of the Havelock estuary site, the 2019 Muddy Buddy will go ahead regardless of the weather. This year a contingency site has been located to ensure that

participants will not be put on hold for a third time. Sport Tasman, despite being a notfor-profit organisation itself, is making efforts to align all of their public events with local charities in order to act as a vehicle for worthy community groups to raise awareness for their causes and obtain much-needed funds. Consequently they have chosen Havelock Vision 20:20 as the 2019 beneficiary. Havelock Vision 2020 is a charitable trust, formed in March 2010 to benefit the environs and community of Havelock by creating a vision for prioritising projects and the future development of amenities. Sport Tasman is also providing the trust with operational support through the delivery of the Havelock Community Hub.

Youth having great muddy fun at last year’s Muddy Buddy event in Havelock. Sport Tasman events manager Katie Arden says they were looking forward to partnering with Havelock Vision 20:20. “If every person taking part in the Muddy Buddy raised just $20 through asking friends, family and colleagues to sponsor them it would affect real change that would benefit all Havelock residents.” Havelock Vision 2020 is delighted to be working in partnership with Sport Tasman. The Trust’s Chair, Barbara Faulls says Sport Tasman’s offer to make the charity a beneficiary of the 2019 Marlborough Muddy Buddy will potentially be a huge boost. “Any funds raised will go towards our efforts

to upgrade the community swimming facilities,” says Barbara. 2 Sport Tasman is a registered charity (CC11102) that exists to get More People, More Active, More Often through the Top of the South Island. “This event is one that captures the heart of everyone involved. It is incredible fun and offers participants the chance to get up close and personal with the estuary!” Tickets are $10 per person, you can register as a team of up to 10 people, and there is also a family ticket package of $35 for up to 5 people (2 adults max). While registration fees are necessary to cover

rising event costs and administration, fundraising platform ‘Givealittle’ has been chosen to assist participants in their fundraising activities. All participants can donate via their own personalised fundraising page linked to the main event. Those choosing not to get muddy can also help the cause and donate by heading to https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/muddy-buddy-fundraisercommunity-swimming Organisers are looking to provide a prize for the fundraiser who is most active online and raises the most for the cause. Any organisation that are able to support by way of donations for spot prizes should contact Katie at Sport Tasman on 03 923 2311.

Aotearoa Bike Challenge

Normally when your workmates tell you to “get on your bike” things aren’t going so well. However, this month it would be wise to heed that advice. The third Aotearoa Bike Challenge invites the nation’s workplaces to encourage staff to mount up during the month of February, earning each company points along the way, which lead to prizes. The competition is free and people can cycle on a regular bike or an e-bike anywhere they like, anytime they like, during the Challenge period. They only need to ride for 10 minutes for it to count. It is all about participation, not how far or how fast various staff can ride. Prizes are offered based on staffing levels, with those organisations who are able to get the highest percentage of their total workforce turning the pedals coming out on top. Last February, 63 companies and 484 people took part in the 2018 Aotearoa Bike Challenge, including 55 “new riders” in the top of the south region. Braden Prideaux, Sport Tasman Community Sport Advisor, says “the Aotearoa Bike Challenge is a fantastic opportunity to show more people how easy and enjoyable cycling can be in our region. “We would love to see more businesses and organisations in our region participate in this free workplace challenge, reap the benefits of getting more active, as well as generate some healthy competition between work colleagues.” Spot prizes on offer include a seven-day mountain bike tour on the Old Ghost Road and

Braden Prideaux from Sport Tasman commuting via e-bike to get to his meeting and encouraging other businesses to participate in the free workplace challenge.

Heaphy Track, bikes, e-bike conversion kits and smart helmets. There will be live leaderboards on the Challenge website showing which organisations are currently on top. Individuals earn points for riding, plus encouraging others to ride, with those points contributing to their workplace’s total and getting them in the draw for prizes. Workplaces with the highest total points, across seven size categories,

will win team prizes at the end of the challenge. The Aotearoa Bike Challenge is a national campaign being run by the NZ Transport Agency, Love to Ride, councils, and other local partners around the country. Love to Ride is an online platform that makes it easy and fun to get more people cycling. Registrations are open and it’s free to participate. For more information, go to www.aotearoa.bike
