Marist topple Nelson

Fury at ‘sky-high’ Air NZ prices Air New Zealand’s high prices to fly to and from Nelson have attracted a huge wave of criticism from its own customers. Last week Nelson Weekly reported on several issues that local customers were having with the airline. Since then close to 200 emails, phone calls and comments via the newspaper’s website and Facebook page have flooded in, our largest response ever. A handful of comments were negative about the story but more than 90 per

cent praised the paper for reporting the high prices and other issues including alleged rude behaviour from one of its staff members. Kim Langridge, the airport manager for Air Nelson says she was disappointed in the article. “Errol Hardie has worked for Air New Zealand for more than 25 years and during his time he has proudly served thousands of Nelsonians. Clearly there are some peo-

show them the perceived severity of the situation. Other issues raised included Air New Zealand’s monopoly on the industry in Nelson and the high fares they offer. Last week Air New Zealand said the cost of its fares was higher for smaller aeroplanes. “The operating costs for these aircraft are higher and the costs are shared by fewer passengers and this is reflected in the ticket

A record number of Nelson kids took part in the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Tryathlon, even though the event had to be postponed due to a potential threat from Cycle Lusi earlier in the month. Sanitarium have confirmed that 1811 local kids age seven to 15 years old took part in the Tryathlon, held at Tahunanui Playing Fields and Tahunanui Beach. Sporting celebrities, including Ironman triathlete Cameron Brown and former Tall Black Phill Jones, joined in the fun at the event by cheering kids on and handing out Weet-Bix Kids Tryathlon medals at the finish line. Sanitarium general manager Pierre van Heerden was thrilled with how popular it was, with kids from all over the top of the south taking part. The Weet-Bix Kids Tryathlon, now in its 22nd year, holds the world record for being the largest children’s sporting event of its kind in the world, and will travel to 14 cities and towns throughout New Zealand in 2013 and 2014.

prices. As a comparison, Air New Zealand operates larger A320 aircraft on our Tasman and Pacific Island routes which not only have lower operating costs they also carry up to 168 passengers at a time.” But a retired engineer came forward this week to debunk that reason, saying the operating costs for smaller planes are a lot less. “It is not true that smaller turboprop operated out of Nelson cost more to operate than larger jets on other domestic routes. A 737-800’s operating costs are $US7578 per hour. A Q300 (Nelson) operating costs are $US2688 per hour,” wrote Tony Emsley. “The high late booking price is because the airline knows that people will pay it when they have to travel. Of course no competition does help.” Kelly Kilgour, of Air New Zealand, says the airline does discount fares to various des-

tinations and bigger planes are coming to Nelson more. “We deploy our larger more efficient aircraft to regional centres in line with demand. Nelson is a growth market and we’re increasingly utilising our larger 68 seat ATR aircraft on the Auckland-Nelson route to increase capacity and stimulate demand which will ultimately flow through to being able to offer a greater volume of cheaper fares out of Nelson.” But customers were less than happy with the current state of pricing. Diane Boote says she had to fly to Christchurch for an urgent MRI scan after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The return airfare cost her $456, which she found “ludicrous” and applied for dispensation for urgent medical treatment. “This MRI could not be done in Nelson, and Christchurch was the only alternative. I am a long-time Koru member and also a shareholder in Air New Zealand,” she

pleaded to Air New Zealand. The response from Air New Zealand was: “Unfortunately our guideline cannot cover passengers who need to make last minute bookings for medical visits at other ports. Mrs Boote, I am sorry to hear of your recent diagnosis and wish you well.” Sophie Thorn says when she was skiing down in Queenstown last year she spoke to a few people who had instead of taking a flight from Nelson direct to Queenstown had taken a flight from Nelson to Auckland, Auckland to Brisbane, Brisbane to Queenstown as it was “so much cheaper” than flying Nelson to Queenstown. “It’s disgusting the prices they charge, just because they are taking advantage of Nelson, it’s stripping people from being able to enjoy a nice holiday and in some cases visiting family members around NZ.” Helen Hills wrote that she recently went on-line to book tickets to fly from Nelson

to Melbourne, via Auckland and return from Sydney. “The fares seemed excessive compared to the fares that our friends had booked out of Blenheim for the same destinations. We looked at earlier and later flights from Nelson to connect with the Auckland to Melbourne flight, but they were even more expensive. In the end, we decided to drive over the hill and travel with our friends from Blenheim, saving $606, minus the fuel.” But Air New Zealand says it does release cheap flights. “Our cheapest fares always sell out first for obvious reasons. If a customer is trying to book very close to their travel date or on a particularly popular date the cheapest fares are generally already sold out. However, Air New Zealand continually releases discounted fares to various domestic destinations.” An editorial on this issue is printed on page 13 of this newspaper.

Police after car tyre slasher Police are on the hunt for a car tyre-slasher after they received 32 complaints about their cars having their tyres slashed. Sergeant Mal Drummond says police had received the complaints over the last three months and most of those vehicles had all four of their tyres damaged. The reported incidents have occurred in a range of locations, including the city, Stoke and Motueka. All have occurred at night

and some of the vehicles were parked up private driveways. Mal says they’d like to hear immediately from anyone who sees suspicious behaviour around cars and that the offender or offenders would face serious criminal charges. “This type of mindless vandalism is incredibly inconvenient and expensive for the victims,” he says. He says police believed the offender, or offenders, were using a large chef ’s knife or simi-

lar sharp object. “Carrying a knife like that is an offence in itself, and it concerns me that someone could be hurt if they tried to confront an offender.” He says anyone with information about who may be responsible for the offending should call police on 546 3840. Information can also be given anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Anyone who witnesses this offending taking place should call 111 immediately.

brook cAmp: Nelson City Council has told its community services committee to engage with the community futher before coming back to it about a proposal to close the Brook Valley Holiday Park. Community services chair Pete Rainey says the council has discovered is that the community really wants to have a serious conversation about this issue. Formal consultation will happen before any decision is made. ShAkESpEArE fEST: The University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival is on this Saturday, April 5. The festival will be held at Nayland College in the Nayland College Performing Arts Centre and will feature students from each on the region’s colleges. Some students will be selected to go on to compete at the national final. poSh picNic: Broadgreen House is celebrating the opening of their Heritage Week Transport exhibition, A Path Well Travelled, with a posh picnic that will include many of the car clubs from the Nelson area. Their aim is to host an extravagant picnic with Gatsby style costumes, gazebos and as much tea and cakes as you can possibly eat. The public are welcome to come and take part for a small fee and browse their exhibition.

Home electricity bills rose higher in Nelson and Marlborough than anywhere else in the country, a whopping $133, or 6.2 per cent. Nationwide, the average increase was $63 in the 12 months to February, with the biggest increases generally occurring in some smaller cities. Dunedin got off the

lightest, with an increase of $9 and Auckland came second at $13, reported the New Zealand Herald. The figures come from an analysis - done by small retailer Powershop - of survey data published by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment. Grey Power Nelson, which has been wor-

ried about the increase in power prices, says the findings are not good news for Nelsonians and its president Neville Male says they need to stop. “While this is happening at one end, we have a policy against using wood burners at the other, so we’re being squeezed both ways, something needs to happen.”

SPCA over-run with cats and kittens The Nelson SPCA was already over-run with cats and kittens, and its resources are being stretched again after one man dropped off another 16 kittens to its Motueka site. About once a year the Nelson SPCA puts a call out to the public to say they are overrun with felines. Currently there are 21 adult cats and 20 kittens up for adoption – while that number is still short of its record of 65 cats in 2010, resources are stretched to cope with the higher popular. Feline assistant Carmin Torrance didn’t want to elaborate on the situation where a man dropped off 16 kittens he didn’t want, but says the Nelson SPCA was hopeful they could be brought over from Motueka once its

current numbers had reduced. “Hopefully we can get some moving over the week. I’ve had some others wanting to drop some off but we’ve had to hold them off for another week,” she says. “Once every year [we reach our limit] and it’s generally in this period after Christmas time with people moving or going away but this is the second or third time this year we’ve had to put a call out.” Nelson SPCA takes on unwanted cats even though some other SPCAs do not, because they are worried “what would happen to them if we didn’t?” says Carmin. Carmin says pet owners need to take more responsibility and look for new potential owners before dropping them

Neighbour’s Day Aotearoa was started by Lifewise in Auckland, which then partnered with Neighbourhood Support to get it into cities around the country.

Neil Little, of Burrough Place in Enner Glynn, helped organise a street party for about 18 people, and he says it was a great opportunity to get to know the other residents.

The region’s elderly will have an opportunity to find out what 3D really means and have some myths about residential care explored and exploded at this Thursday’s Nelson Tasman Positive Aging Expo at the Headingly Centre, near Richmond. The popular expo is aimed at showcasing the recreational, health and social services that help make ageing a positive experience in the region. It will be opened by the Minister of Senior Citizens Jo Goodhew and will feature 68 stalls, two seminars and a range of activities and demonstrations. Nelson Tasman Positive Ageing Forum chairperson Gail Collingwood says the seminars will be especially interesting with president of the Retirement Villages Association New Zealand, Margaret Owens, discussing residential care and Christchurch Dr Jenny Keightley talking about home-based support starting at 10.15am. Geriatrician Dr Mike Ball’s seminar, titled Life in 3D, will address the issues of dementia, delirium

and depression and Heather Lackner of Alzheimers Nelson will talk about support available for dementia clients and their families, starting at 1pm. Gail says Margaret’s seminar will be popular because there are a number of options available for retirement. “People are making choices about where they want to live when they retire but there are so many different options. Different people also have different perceptions about retirement villages and I’m sure Margaret will help explore the realities and explode the myths.” Gail says there will also be a wide range of stalls and activities including free health checks and free CarFit checks to older drivers. The Expo is aimed at older adults and their families and runs from 10am to 3pm. Admission is free with complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits provided. A free bus service will run from Sundial Square in Richmond to the Expo every 30 minutes from 10am to 1.30pm.

Nelson’s economy growing faster Nelson’s economy is growing faster than the national average and the manufacturing industry is leading the way. Last year, Nelson and Tasman combined to contribute $3,795,000,000 to the nation’s gross domestic product, or 1.8 per cent

of the country’s total GDP, according to figures released last week by Statistics New Zealand. Manufacturing plays a big part in the local economy, with it performing particularly strongly in 2011 when it made up about 13

per cent of the region’s GDP. Between 2007 and 2011, the rental, hiring and real estate services and health care and social assistance industries contributed the most to the region’s GDP increase. In 2012, the main contributor to the

increase was professional, scientific, technical, administrative, support services and agriculture industries. Statistics New Zealand says Nelson and Tasman have a “well-diversified economy” for a small region.

Nelson man celebrates 104th birthday One of Nelson’s oldest residents, Otho Powis, reckons the secret to his longevity is leading an active, healthy lifestyle and abstaining from cigarettes and alcohol. Otho celebrated his 104th birthday with two of his nieces, Richmond sisters Coral Rauhihi and Heather Perry, at the Ernest Rutherford Retirement Village in Stoke last Thursday. Coral says Otho always told her that remaining active and “never drinking or smoking” were the reasons he has lived so long, although it appears that good genes are also a big factor. “He is the second youngest of five children and they all lived to their 90s,” Coral says. “Our Mum was 99 when she died so there’s some good genes there.” Coral says Otho was born in Waiau

in North Canterbury where he lived and worked as a carpenter. When he retired, Otho and his late wife Joyce moved to Nelson, living in Marybank and then Rutherford Street. Coral, who helped look after Otho for the last 14 years he was at home and his Presbyterian Support caregiver Pam Fraser say Otho has a “wicked sense of humour”. “He was so funny at times,” Pam says. “I can’t repeat some of the things he used to say but he was hilarious.” Coral says Otho remained healthy and active until just over a year ago when he started to lose his mobility. “He was living at home and doing well until recently. We had a heck of a job getting him to leave and come in here - he wanted to stay at home with his garden.”

We've found Nelson's most wonderful woman

Nelson's "most wonderful woman" Annette Taylor with mayor Rachel Reese and the organisers of the 'most wonderful women' competition. Photo: Andrew Board.

Eight local businesswomen asked the question and last Thursday they were provided with a winner to their Most Wonderful Woman competition – Annette Taylor. The businesswomen featured in Nelson Weekly last month to promote the competition and reward the winner of the competition with a $2300 prize package, involving each of their businesses. Annette is a director of boarding and director of international students at Nelson College and was chosen as the winner by Nelson’s first female mayor, Rachel Reese, from a shortlist of six local women. The other five finalists were Heather Brownie, Anne Waters, Caroline Wade, Lin Ginty and Rita Serfontein.

Annette is battling melanoma and was nominated for the title by her friend, Christine Sutherland. In her nomination, which tells of Annette’s courage and strength in the face of adversity, Christine wrote: “What makes Annette special is her incredibly positive attitude.” Annettee says she is delighted to win. “I’m overwhelmed and humbled. When I was first told of the nomination, I asked if the caller was sure they had the right person. I’m really looking forward to the beautiful prizes, but feel grateful that this also gives me an opportunity to spread the ‘get it checked’ message, Melanoma is a sneaky cancer, it can manifest itself in unusual places, so you don’t always know you have it.”

Shoppers at the Richmond Mall were treated to musical entertainment on Thursday night, with the first of the Rock da House mini concerts being held in the food court. The Richmond Mall will host an hour long performance every two-to-three weeks by a different school involved in the Rock da House initiative, right up until the official Richmond Mall Rock da House concert in Motueka in August. Musical director John Phillips says the first performance, which featured friend and family duos, was a big success. “It was just a really nice atmosphere and being nice and relaxed was good for the performers too,” he says. “I think it was great, eh.” Richmond Mall manager Belinda de Clercq says the feedback had been really positive. John says the mall gave the performers a “ready-made-audience”. “That’s the whole idea. People from all walks of life will be exposed to all sorts of different music and hopefully it encourages them to get their children into it.” The next performance will be by Brightwater School on April 10, starting at 6:30pm.

For the first time Dramatix Theatre Development Trust is offering the chance to experience the living history of their world war trench at night. The group will be taking guided tours through the living history displays at Founders Heritage Park, the seventh year Dramatix has held its annual Anzac commemorations. “We’ve wanted to do this other years and have had people ask for this as there’s no doubt, dark night adds to the intensity of our living history displays,” says organiser TJ Ramsay. The night tours will have an R16 element and not for younger people or those who don’t want to experience trench warfare at its most grim. “For our three day ‘Anzac Experience’ event and for our fortnight long TDC Education Programme, we target the dramatic impact to suit younger and family audiences. The Night Time tours will allow us to push the level of intensity,” she says. TJ says the show will once again be dramatic. “We’re not a big team at all and what we achieve makes me very proud. That there is nowhere else in New Zealand where living history can be experienced to this degree makes our event truly unique. It all comes down to the passionate commitment of a few people and the generosity of our sponsors.” Bookings are essential for the guided night tours as groups need to be scheduled and tickets are $10 per head. They will be held on April 19 and 20 from 8pm. For bookings or information, email dramatix@dramatix.co.nz.

Nelson’s only garden of remembrance is now open to view. It started with a dream but now the dream is made real at the stunning Hope Garden of Remembrance & Crematorium. Hope Garden of Remembrance & Crematorium is Nelson’s first and only such memorial garden. It was created to provide families with the option of choosing a natural garden setting as a place of final rest for themselves or a loved one. It is a naturally beautiful, peaceful setting often not found in public cemeteries today. Our awardwinning main building is a multi-roofed complex featuring a chapel, gathering spaces, offices and a Memorial Book room. Water flows beneath each part of this graceful space providing a metaphor for the flow of life, death and continuance. The entrance to the main building is supported by four impressive carved pou or poles, designed by Golden Bay artist Robin Slow, and featuring tui and harakeke. The pou represent Ngā hau e wha or the four winds, signifying a place where all people may come together.

bag each of course. After complaining about the stupidity of this ruling, and asking how she was supposed to carry two bags and her daughter, the only redeeming factor was that the check in woman did arrange for someone to meet her at the plane at her Auckland destination to assist. Obviously the ruling has not been made by staff checking people in, but how one slightly overweight bag instead of the allowance of two makes any difference is totally illogical. It is not as though the extra weight is an OSH issue, as it is O.K. if you pay for it. Another example of NZ bureaucracy. L.K. Fitzgerald. The timing of this article could not have been better! I had a similar experience and have mailed a formal complaing to Air NZ over a month ago with no response. We arrive 4 minutes late for a 6:30am flight to Christchurch. The airport was empty and quiet. This was the start of our trip to take my daughter to Otago University and drop her off. The same man you wrote about was so incredibly rude. Our plane was still on the ground and he refused to let us board. He kept pointing at our ticket to show us we were wrong by arriving late as our ticket ‘clearly stated’. I begged and actually broke down in tears. We had to pay $200 to rebook for a flight two hours later, which was half full. It took

him about two minutes to rebook us and I might add, our plane was still on the ground as we sat down to wait. What a pity that we have no power and they hold it all. Andrea Adair. Firstly, Air New Zealand is incredibly disappointed in the way the Nelson Weekly has managed the enquiry which resulted in the article ‘Air New Zealand left me humiliated’. Publicly highlighting an individual employee in this way is extremely invasive and has naturally caused distress. Errol Hardie has worked for Air New Zealand for more than 25 years and during his time he has proudly served thousands of Nelsonians. Clearly there are some people who have been disappointed with Errol’s customer service which is something we will certainly discuss with him. Having recently stepped into the role of Nelson Airport Manager I am very proud of the team who deliver great customer service to the 676,000 passengers who pass through this very busy airport every year. I’m totally committed to ensuring our team delivers a seamless experience to all of our customers and welcome feedback – both the good and the not so good – directly to me at kim.langridge@airnz.co.nz and I will respond personally.

Sick teen still fundraising

Bettie McInnes and Bernice Stott at the Save the Children Fair which was held for the 20th year at the Stoke Memorial Hall. Save the Children are an international organisation and the Nelson branch is part of Save the Children New Zealand. This year they are giving money to two emergency areas. One is in Syria for the people who are being relocated to Lebanon where they are living in makeshift conditions and the other half of the fundraised money will be going to the Philippines to rebuild classrooms and supply educational material after Typhoon Haiyan hit last year. Sixty volunteers have helped with the stalls for the fair and organisers are extremely grateful for their work. It was a tremendous response from the public and a total of $8362 was raised which they are very happy to be able to pass on. The Save the Children Shop can be found at 56A Buxton Square, Nelson 7010. Photo: Jessie Johnston. SP

But because of her illness, people have come forward pledging money if she doesn’t shave her head, but she’s not interested in that. “It’s only hair, it grows back and some think it’s going to make my health condition worse but it’s only hair.” She’s already raised close to $1000 for the hospice that cared for Briar in her home town of Palmerston North and is hoping for $2000 by the end of this week when she will

shave her hair and donate it to Pantene who uses the hair to make wigs for cancer patients. Georgia’s mum Robyn FerrisMaxwell says she’s right behind Georgia’s challenge. “Yes Georgia’s sick, but doing things that make you feel good can only make you stronger and there’s a really beautiful meaning behind it.” While Georgia’s road to recovery is still far from certain or far from complete she says helping honour her friend who taught her about staying positive will mean a lot to her.

Georgia Ferris has had a year from hell but it isn’t stopping her from taking on a fundraising mission usually reserved for healthy people trying to help people like her. Georgia, 17, was a healthy teenager until May last year, when a gastro intestinal disorder left her unable to attend school or her part time job and having to spend months in hospitals around the country. It was in one of those hospitals – Auckland Public – that Georgia met a fellow patient, a woman called Briar Lobb. When they first met Georgia remembers thinking she was around 11 years old and was happy there was another “kid” in the hospital. Later that day she found out Briar was in fact 26 but was so frail because cancer had left her terminally ill. Georgia says Briar was so positive and full of life that she had a remarkable impact on her and the two became close friends over the five weeks they spent together in hospital. Earlier this year, Briar lost her fight with cancer and when Georgia found out she was herself battling serious complications of her illness at Christchurch hospital. Georgia decided to participate in the Relay for Life in Nelson last month to honour Briar and while there saw some girls shaving their heads to raise

Editorial: Air NZ needs to sort its prices Steve Page Air New Zealand is being a bit naughty. They have a public relations division to “snow” a story when it arises and the story that arises most often? Overcharging on their fares. Let’s have a look at Nelson. Air New Zealand holds the monopoly with around 95 per cent of passengers flying with Air NZ. Due to Nelson’s short-ish runway, no jets can fly in, so there is no real competition and the location is ripe for the plucking. No competition, a seemingly more affluent customer and the fourth busiest airport in NZ make this an airline’s dream. It’s called a ripe revenue stream and any business would look at this situation and basically find out how far the prices can be pushed up. That’s not really a super-bad thing but there has to be limits. Air NZ state they do have “compassionate fares” and advise passengers that for an extra $12 they can insure the fare if they have to change it. But how it works is that you change the ticket, pay the extra and then when you get back from your journey you fill out the 3-4 page claim form and if you can still be bothered send it away for consideration and even then you may be refused. We were unable to locate anyone who had taken advantage of the compassionate airfares and in one instance as one passenger said, “it’s my business so I’m not comfortable explaining my personal and often very private circumstances to a complete stranger”. Why are we putting up with this? You can be sure the only thing that will stop this is the introduction of a competitor. Air NZ has shown in the past they are quite comfortable putting up with the complaints and squawking of the Nelson people because the business model is so lucrative. The old snow job of it being more expensive to operate from Nelson than a huge jet flying overseas is just PR hype. The prices are all relative. A small prop plane, such as those used here in Nelson,

are cheaper to run, crew, land and pay for. So why not match the fares accordingly? Here’s what we have been told by our readers as far as recent unbelievable prices go: $1200 return for two to Christchurch, $832 one way for two to Auckland, $2400 for two to Whakatane return and $789 return for one person to Dunedin. We’ve also heard of a $105 charge just to change a changeable airfare for three to Wellington. And $1100 for a return fare to Bluff to bury a relative. These fares are on a par with international fares. Most of these were bookings made one week out. There is a social responsibility on Air NZ’s part to provide a reliable, competitive service that also recognises compassionate and emergency situations and reacts accordingly. Not drop the level of service on board, charge at every whim, and continue to put badly-behaved staff, such as in last week’s issue, in front of the public. The public need to be treated with dignity and respect. You know we get better service from the health sector now than from Air NZ. The most ironic twist and they hear this all the time, is that when they got into big strife and were losing millions it was us, the taxpayers who bailed them out. Now we acknowledge that’s not healthy and we may well see that with Qantas soon however what we want from Air NZ is this: There has to be a balance, not the continual raping of the fares in and out of Nelson. Think about lost sporting chances and indeed business opportunities as well as personal relationships that depend on an efficient and fair price structure for air travel as well as that good old ground service. As Nelson grows and demands are put on the ability to travel with financial ease as part of our ongoing success and growth Air NZ sits like a big fat aluminium budgie on the runway with its head up its bum. And let’s face it Air NZ, no country ends up being without an airline, no matter what. And the guys from Origin warned us this would happen, didn’t they? Fiona Thompson and Susan Lawrence near the finish line during Sunday’s Walk for Water charity event. Around 120 people took part in this year’s event with more than $1900 raised for the charity. Organisers say it was a big success and all of the funds will contribute to the installation of an entire network of ground water bores in the African township of Torwood later this year.

Health Services - Nelson Harley’s Pharmacy began its journey with the Harley Family way back in 1974. It was Nicholas’ Auty Harley who purchased the existing pharmacy and began to develop it into a trust worthy community orientated business. In 2012, Tahuna Pharmacy was purchased by Andrew and Violet Harley, Nick’s son and daughter-inlaw. The pharmacy was re-branded to Harley’s Pharmacy and continues to be a local, family orientated business today. They provide a personal, professional and efficient service, with expert advice on all aspects of health. “We understand that your pharmacist is probably the health professional you see the most and we take that responsibility seriously” says Andrew. “We have grown the business to include more health supplements, which is a particular interest of mine as a pharmacist. Understanding the role of these, in conjunction with prescription medication, leads to a more holistic approach to health and healthcare” Violet adds.

Women’s service group turns 50

A Nelson service club is preparing to host its 50th anniversary celebrations this weekend, when they can reflect on a significant impact on the city. Soroptimist International of Nelson was chartered on April 4, 1964, when membership cost two guineas. Internationally, Soroptimist International has more than 83,000 members in 127 countries and 32 of those members are from the Nelson group. Over the past five decades the group has remained relatively strong in numbers and still raises and donates thousands of dollars to charities each year. Their most enduring fundraiser is the Christmas puddings, which this year will celebrate 30 consecutive years in action. Soroptimist members make the puddings from a recipe that was given to them 30 years ago from a Soroptimist member in the United States. But their largest fundraiser was Toy Fantasia, which was held four

times over eight years in the mid80s and early 90s. That fundraiser earned them $66,000 in total and the interest earned from that money is still distributed to local charity groups each Christmas. In the early years, members of the newly-formed group fundraised to provide amenities for an occupant in the extension of Whareama Hospital in Stoke and their first international project was to provide money for furnishing a nursery for disabled children in Saigon. More recently, the group has been responsible for the Teen Parent Unit at Auckland Point School, assisting both in financially and in time and man-power in helping get the unit off the ground. Organiser of the anniversary celebrations, Gay Northcott, says delegates from around New Zealand will be in town for a lunch and slide show presentation and they are hoping it will include a foundation member, Joy Anderson.

speeches and history but the slideshow will show the history of the group and what we’d done.”

What is happening in the Nelson residential Real Estate market? Steady to strong sales through the Summer months, with out of town buyers leading the way. We are finding that desirable family homes in popular locations are in good demand, especially if they are well presented, with many of these homes attracting multiple offers. Also, as usual with the “Baby boomer” demographic, we cannot get enough easy care, low maintenance properties on the flat close to Nelson (The Wood), or Stoke shops, or near Queen Street in Richmond. This trend will only increase with huge demand from local and out of town retirees. First home buyers are still out and about too, some with their parents assisting in deposits. Nelson real estate will never go out of fashion! What can Simon offer you when selling your home? Simon has consistently been a top selling local Nelson agent for several years, and has built a great reputation and referral network. Simon can offer you a fair and reasonable commission rate so you can maximize your profit, combined with a professional marketing package utilizing a soughtafter professional photographer, all major websites, and the Property Press. Why should I use a Personal Trainer? Using a qualified personal trainer has many benefits. Creating a tailormade exercise programme suited to an individual’s needs is crucial to obtaining optimum results. Having a full time personal trainer with over 15yrs experience, you know you are getting the best advice to achieve your health and fitness goals. What kind of facilities do you have? I have my own private personal training studio situated in Stoke and have been running my business there for the past 7yrs. The studio is fully equipped with the latest fitness equipment and all training sessions are one on one, so no busy gyms to walk into and no fighting for equipment. Do you also advise on nutrition? Nutrition is not overlooked and an eating plan is discussed with every client to ensure the best and quickest results. Tape measurements, caliper test and initial weight are taken on your first visit, and long and short term goals set. Medical and fitness history are also discussed at depth to ensure safety of exercise programme. How long should my dentures last? It depends on the wearer and the materials used, but generally between 6 and 10 years. Over time, changes naturally occur in the mouth and supporting tissues. Bone recession, jaw related issues and general wear of the teeth all factor into the optimum life of dentures. At Nelson Denture Clinic we use the best quality materials and techniques to ensure your dentures last as long as possible. What are the signs of worn dentures? Overclosing of the jaw, characterised by pronounced creases in the corners of the mouth where rashes may occur, tip of the nose and chin closer together, jaw sliding forward, lack of lip support and dentures feeling loose are all signs that your dentures need to be checked. How often should my dentures be checked? Just like natural teeth it is advisable to have your dentures checked annually. Early detection and addressing potential problems can prolong the life of your dentures, and avoid chronic jaw related issues which can affect your appearance and ability to eat certain foods. At Nelson Denture Clinic we are expert at detecting and solving your denture problems. We offer free check ups so don’t hesitate to take advantage of this offer.

How safe is teeth whitening? Sparklewhite is a member of the New Zealand Cosmetic Teeth Whitening Association, which is your assurance that you’re dealing with a trained, qualified and safe cosmetic teeth whitening practitioner which takes pride in the quality of their service and care. Sparklewhite has gone the extra mile by being the first company to introduce the EURO non-peroxide teeth whitening system which is the safest product in the world when it comes to Teeth Whitening. Plus it meets all FDA and CE requirements. How does the Sparklewhite procedure work? Gums are protected with a gum wax and a special whitening gel is applied to the teeth. A patented blue light is shone on the teeth which starts the oxidisation process. The procedure is very simple and the treatment takes between 40 and 90 minutes depending on the original tooth colour. How much whiter will my teeth be? Teeth can become two to ten shades brighter, depending on their original colour and level of staining. The procedure will not harm dental work but will work to remove stains and make dentures, crowns and veneers less noticeable.

GENERATIONS OF NELSON Brought to you by Marsden House

THE MOLESWORTH AND ITS MAN Bob Boddington, born at Belgrove in 1867 rose to become manager for 19 years of Molesworth Station. At the age of 14 he started work as a fleece-picker and worked progressively as a packer, musterer,

stockman, head stockman, and head shepherd before being appointed manager in 1900. The illiterate Boddington was a great success until his retirement at the age of 52 but died of a heart-attack just a fortnight later.

in Saturday’s defeat while forwards Macka Misinale and Ethan Blackadder continued their strong starts. Kade says the team is heading in the right direction. “We just don’t really have the player base at the moment to put it all together but that’s coming and it’s a work in progress. I hope, like last year, we’ll start heading in the right direction eventually.” Even though both losses have been close, the task doesn’t get much easier with this weekend’s opponents Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers opening their season with two wins, including a resounding victory over Stoke. Kade says Wanderers are probably the benchmark of the competition at the moment and believes they will provide a good test for his side. “It’s good for us to measure ourselves up to them and see how we go,” he says. This Saturday’s game against Wanderers kicks off at the Brightwater Domain at 3pm.

President of the Nelson Petanque club, Maria Clinton, is offering you a great opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy some good company while playing this wonderful and relaxing game. Although Petanque is for any age, it has the advantage of being a physically nondemanding sport and doesn’t require any strenuous training. “We play three half-hour games from 1:30pm on Sundays and Wednesdays and then it’s a cup of tea and a chat.” Maria says. If you are interested in coming along to play Petanque, then contact Maria Clinton on 548 9006 and get free bowles and coaching with your membership. The Petanque Club is on Paru Paru Rd, Just off Halifax St.

GENERA TION

Galbraith Nelson are hoping to have some key personnel back for this weekend’s match against the unbeaten Wanderers, with both Mitchell Thwaites and David Havili a chance to play. The return of Mitchell and David couldn’t come at a better time, with Nelson staring down a 0-2 record already this season, dropping Saturday’s match to Wakatu Marist 36-24 at Neale Park. Mitchell, who is regularly a flanker but also featured as a hooker last year, looks to have recovered from an eye injury, while David would be assessed later in the week after receiving a knock to the head during a recent New Zealand Under-20 trial camp. “We’re kind of touch and go whether we’ll have Mitchell and Havili back. We’re sitting on that at the moment but it’d be massive if they were in the team. We just don’t want to push them too early,” says Nelson co-coach Kade Heke. New fullback Ben Tyler impressed

Swimmers off to compete in Oz

For the first time ever, Tasman Swim Club will send five swimmers to the Australia Age Championship. But it’s not a matter of throwing them in the deep end, most of the qualifiers are realistic final prospects. The Tasman Swim Club team is made up of Sam McKenzie, Talya Harwood, Caitlin Delany, Sara Gane and Thomas Heaton. Both Sam, 14, and Thomas, 15, are ranked within the top ten in their respective freestyle events, and coach Andy Adair expects to be back for three or four nights of finals during the six day competition. The Georgina Hope Swimmers Foundation Australia Age Championship will be held at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre from April 14. At the championship, Caitlin will compete in the female 15 100m breaststroke, Sara will race in the female 15 100m breaststroke and 200m breaststroke, Talya has qualified for the female 14 800m freestyle, Thomas will race in both the male 15 1500m freestyle and 400m freestyle,

Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club Well the endless summer carries on with long hot days and not much wind, making it awesome fishing weather. The water in Tasman Bay is very hot at over 20 degrees, with lots of albacore tuna now being caught all over the bay in 40 metres of water. The kingfish are still in massive numbers around the Boulder Bank and Motueka spat farms with the spearos getting the bigger ones by hand picking them. Land based fishing is also doing well with Kina Beach, Mapua and the Back Beach producing some good pannie snapper. Kenepuru has finally started to fire with some good double digit fish getting landed now for those putting the hard yards in. However the seven gill sharks are still keeping the tackle shops in business. Only a couple of months of the fishing season left so if you haven’t been out to get a tuna now is the time as the water will start to cool off from now on. This will also see the snapper start to move out deeper and the kingfish start to leave the bay. It also means the big kingfish and snapper will turn up around D’Urville Island in the next couple of months and hopefully give us as good a season as we had last year.

TUESDAY 1 April 2014

With the amount of feed that’s been around this year I would not be surprised if it’s a very good winter fishery. Also can report huge schools of anchovies with thousands of birds feeding and big schools of kawahai chasing them, great fun and easy to catch! Kayak fishing in the region has been great this past month with big work ups from kahawai adding to the sport and the thrill on the yaks. Plenty of great sized snapper between 6 and 10 pounds still about and being caught. The kayaking numbers are increasing and we counted 10 in the bay this past weekend. It is especially good to see some younger people getting in to it with their parents. With amazing weather still with us there is still plenty of time for getting out there and trying your luck. Hopefully the forecast for Easter will be good and also the school holidays. They will provide an ideal last opportunity to get some snapper in Tasman Bay before the water temperature cools and the fish move out to deeper waters. As this happens the better places to fish will be around Pepin Island, Cable and Delaware Bays.

Tasman Swim Club swimmers Thomas Heaton, Caitlin Delany, Talya Harwood, Sara Gane and Sam McKenzie will be competing at the Australia Age Championship in Sydney next month. Photo: Phillip Rollo. and Sam has qualified in five says Andy, who highlights freestyle races; 50m, 100m, that for the first time ever Nelson-Marlborough has four 200m, 400m and 1500m. All of the competitors had to swimmers ranked number one meet a qualifying standard to in New Zealand at the same gain entry into the competition. time. “What I’ve done in every When comparing the standard centre I’ve been in is to use between the competition and Australian Age Groups as my the New Zealand champs, benchmark for two reasons.
