Victory for the environment Kate Russell Community clean-ups, a switch to using non-toxic weed-killer, more rubbish bins, a soft plastic recycling station and solar panels are all in the works at the Victory Community Centre. A clean-up day this Saturday will also see the community out in force around the centre grounds, primary school and Railway Reserve. Nicola Baré from the centre says it’s a common sight to find beer cans, chip pottles and pie wrappers in their car park most mornings - even a bird’s nest made out of rubbish. “We’re aiming to see where these pockets of rubbish are, installing more bins and establishing a rewards programme to encourage people to keep the area clean,” she says. The centre also has a Kai Shed to distribute free vegetables and bread

Parents need to ‘get with the times’ Jonty Dine Reporter

jonty@nelsonweekly.co.nz

Nelson principals say parents need to understand that education and society has moved on from the days of their own schooling and children are much more anxious these days.

Additional copies $1

The comments come after a backlash from parents in relation to Nelson Bays Football’s decision to stop publishing results tables for junior players aged 6 to 12. The move was an attempt by the organisation to take the emphasis of sport away from winning and losing and onto developing players. Tasman Rugby Union also re-

cently implmented a “mercy rule” that was designed to stop score blowouts. Nelson mum Cushla Voss says she is disappointed that parents can’t encourage their children to compete. “Life has a lot of wins and losses; the sports field is a great place to learn to deal with those.”

However, Hampden Street School principal Don Mclean says results are more about the parents than the kids. “Who are the results for? Because some parents get awfully excited about results and tables.” Don is in favour of NBF’s move, which the Nelson Weekly reported last week, saying that parents

need to understand that times have changed. He says due to the nature of modern society, children are a lot more anxious than they used to be. “We are dealing with different kids than we were a few years ago.”

“Kids aren’t spending enough time outside taking risks. It’s how you learn to be robust, playing outside. We are cotton wooling them, this snowflake generation.”

“I just wonder if we are more willing to identify these things these days. In the past kids might be anxious but they are just outside getting on with it.”

“My observation is that with social media kids are all about the ‘right now’ and they always feel like they are missing out on something. It used to be calmer.”

“Anxiety has alway existed but we are much more aware about mental health and teaching kids resilience, whereas before it wasn’t spoken about and we just told kids to harden up.”

Parents need to ‘get with the times’ Nelson suburb’s bid to jor changes in junior football grade?” FROM PAGE 1 be most sustainable She says parents can sport. “My junior football side recently had a string of losses, but we worked our way out of it and knowing they were at the bottom of the table probably wouldn’t have helped that.” He says the development of skills and the ability to be part of a team should be of higher importance than the end result. “The reality is that kids are leaving in droves because they feel like they aren’t as talented as the next kid and that they aren’t worthy of being there.” Don says this latest decision may be the catalyst for some ma-

“We want kids to know; when they lose, they aren’t losers.” Tahunanui School principal Barbara Bowen says one of her teachers is thinking about doing away with player awards as “no one player can win the game in a team sport”. “The changes are in line with modern thinking and league tables and ‘awards’ are an old fashioned adult concept. “When kids leave home, they show how much they value them by leaving all the cups and certificates behind and quite frankly who remembers who won the 2017 under 7’s

influence children’s attitudes to winning at all costs which in turn can lead to cheating. Victory Primary principal Helen TaylorYoung agrees that times have definitely changed. “We are all about inclusion and doing our best these days.” However, parent Marc Tansey wasn’t convinced. “Winning isn’t important but teaching kids to deal with losing is.” Gary McGregor, on social media, joked: “Do they still toss the coin to see which team kicks off? Or is that considered as someone losing as well?”

Our aim is to teach people how to recycle that food to make cheap and healthy meals.” They also have an on-site community garden, worm farm and Koha Shed, which encourages people to re-use clothes and household items, instead of buying them new. This Saturday’s clean-up is part of Nelson City Council’s Te Wairepo/York Stream project, and will involve a rubbish sweep, tree planting and preparation for the upcoming Matariki. “Victory Primary School is encouraging families to get

on board, too. They are already working hard on recycling and zero waste,” says Nicola. Trish and Charlie Goulter, from Goulter’s Vinegar, will also be donating their natural herbicide to the centre on a regular basis. It’s the first product of its kind to be approved in New Zealand, and Victory is one of the first places to use it. Nicola says it’s an exciting time for Victory. “We want to roll out these exciting initiatives. We’ve already had great feedback, so this is a great opportunity for the community to band together to make a difference.” Victory’s clean-up day is on this Saturday, 16 June, from 1-4pm, meeting at the centre at 2 Totara St.

$70M fishing boat coming to town

Charles Anderson Sealord’s new $70 million deepwater fishing vessel is due to arrive at Port Nelson by the end of the week. Designed by Norwegian naval architects Skipsteknisk, the Tokatu – a 82.9m-long factory freezer trawler which will provide up to 80 new jobs. It is currently east of New Zealand after making its way on the 40-day voyage, via the Panama Canal, from ship builders Simek, in Norway. “This will be the first new vessel for the country’s deepwater fishery in 20 years, since the introduction of the Rehua,” explains Sealord CEO Steve Yung. “With the vision to be the best deepsea fishing company in New Zealand, this investment in the reliability, efficiency and increased capacity of our fleet is essential.” Doug Paulin, Sealord’s general manager fishing, says fishing is the most important thing the company does. “So it was important to us to progress the best option rather than the cheapest one.” Skipsteknisk, designers of, among other vessels, Sealord’s Rehua and the Aukaha, wasted

Photo: Simek. no time in starting on plans to fit the company’s needs. “We took one of the latest large fillet trawlers and essentially sat with the designer and customised it to our needs, including things like putting in a fishmeal plant, a hoki factory and a pelagic factory suited for New Zealand species,” says Doug. “There’s no room for mistakes. The analogy I use to demonstrate what we’re getting into is that we’re effectively building a jumbo jet that you’re about to soak in salt water 365 days a year, so it’s got to be good.” The new vessel will be Sealord’s most efficient and sustainable yet, fitted with, among other advances, new Precision Seafood Harvesting equipment, as well as the ability to produce its own electricity via winch systems.

The vessel, a series ST-118 with a beam of 17m and engine of 4800kW, will have the capacity with each voyage to hold 1000 tonnes of fuel, 1000 tonnes of fish and 300 tonnes of fishmeal. The trawler, which will have the capacity to catch 20,000 tonnes of fish a year, will have an automatic plate freezer and palletising facility – which means great savings in efficiencies. As for the crew’s facilities – it will accommodate its 45 crew in facilities likened to those of a top hotel. Equipped with 14 single and 15 double en-suite cabins, a gymnasium, two separate lounges, spacious galley and efficient laundry facilities, the fit-out is set to impress as much as the fishing and processing capabilities.

Youth mental health still on radar for Nelson Charles Anderson The driving force behind a campaign to reverse changes to youth mental health services is doubling down on her mission. Zoe Palmer, 17, gathered more than 1700 signatures over Nelson Marlborough Health’s proposed changes to the on-call Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service crisis team. Under the review, the afterhours CAMHS team, which provides specialist help to young people at risk, would be replaced by a more general team. Zoe says she wants to create a forum where the people of Nelson can let their voices be heard. To that end, she is holding a public meeting on the CAMHS crisis team at River Kitchen on Friday. Zoe says it will be an opportunity to hear from service users and health professionals about why it’s an important service model. “This is a public community hui to talk about what’s going on and have a discussion about it.”

E-trike moves Lynette forward Kate Russell

Every day, Lynette Forward puts on her purple helmet, hops on her electric trike and cruises down Rocks Rd - all while inspiring others along the way. The retired Stoke resident can’t walk without a walking frame and has been unable to drive a car for the past eight years due a back injury she received during her nursing career. But since she purchased her Carro e-trike last August, getting around has been no problem and having clocked up nearly 3000km, it would be rare to find a day that she hasn’t used it. “It has literally changed my life,” says Lynette. “I could never do anything myself and used to have to catch taxis or rely on friends for rides. Now I can go anywhere I want, when I want.” Whether it’s for her daily coffee at Sublime on Haven Rd, to Richmond to visit a friend, or to one of her frequent hospital appointments - Lynette can go anywhere on her e-trike. She even takes her cat, Mable, for rides. “I just sit her cage on the back. I took her down to the vet last

Nelson College Preparatory School students Fergus Richards, Ollie Taylor, Preston Holder and Tom Lynch, all 12, won the oral section of the junior grade at the International Future Problem Solving Championship in Wisconsin in the United States on Sunday (NZ time). They backed that up with a fourth placing in the written section. The students earned their place after winning the junior division at the national finals, they then competed against 80 teams and 2000 kids from around the globe.

"It will be the trip of a lifetime for these young men – they’ve been working like mad.” The topic for the competition was the criminal justice system and the boys had

studied hard to understand how law enforcement and courts of the future could be made better. "They are thinking of new processes to regulate crime and prosecute offenders and anticipating the ways that technology might be used

Prepared for light downpour Editor

charles@nelsonweekly.co.nz

Bruce Stilwell’s neighbours haven’t started giving him curious looks yet. But soon they might as they see a 6m wide giant umbrella taking form on his back lawn. The Nelson artist is well known for his use of concentric patterns on all manner of mediums, but

for his latest project he has decided to go much lighter. “I thought it would be great to do something on a bit bigger scale and it sort of grew from there.” His giant umbrella will form one of the key pieces in the upcoming Light Nelson exhibition which will see more than 60 installations dotted through Queen’s Gardens, Albion Square, and the campus for Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology.

It has grown into one of Nelson’s largest and favourite, free, biennial events, attracting more than 55,000 visitors in its last outing in 2016. “After going to the last Light Nelson it really inspired me,” Bruce says. “I thought I’d really like to be a part of it.” So he is creating his umbrella using metres and metres of twine attached to more than 2000 screws, that will be wrapped around the

umbrella. He will then install eight fluorescent bulbs with black lights so the whole piece will glow purple. He started about a month ago – just working on it a few hours each night. Initially he was going to do something smaller but realised he wasn’t going to be able to fit it on his trailer anyway, so he might as well go big. “It doesn’t look that big now but

Cawthron plays on through school of music organ Charles Anderson The Cawthron Institute Trust Board has donated $80,000 towards the restoration of the Nelson Centre of Musical Art (NCMA)’s organ, an instrument originally donated by Thomas Cawthron in 1913. As part of the NCMA refurbishment, the organ has been restored to its original specification, provided with a stunning new console, and returned to its original position within the casework. Thomas Cawthron’s largest donation during his life was to the Nelson Centre for Musical Arts (NCMA), known then as the Nelson School of Music. His gifts of money and a loan towards the NCMA would be the equivalent of around $7m today. “We decided to support the project because there is a natural synergy between the NCMA redevelopment project and the historical links with Thomas Cawthron,” says Cawthron Institute Trust Board chair, Bob Dickinson. “Nelson is fortunate to have had, and continues to have, civic-minded people like Thomas Cawthron who

have made our city a better place to live. It is appropriate to remember this generous man with a gift that reflects his appreciation of the arts.” NCMA chair Roger Taylor is especially excited about having the organ installed and being played to audiences. “The character, voicing, and dynamics of the organ are beautifully suited to the famed acoustic of the auditorium,” says Taylor. “This restoration is inspiring interest amongst Nelson’s musicians to explore the organ repertoire in performance and appreciation.” The total restoration cost was more than $800,000. The donation was announced at a gala concert at the centre on Saturday. “We are especially pleased to have younger people expressing an interest in playing this stunning instrument. In another display of the synergy between Cawthron and NCMA, Cawthron staff members were in both the Nelson Civic Choir and the Chroma Chamber Choir that accompanied the organ when we played the Messiah in May.”

Your Voice Nelson College for Girls students allowed to wear pants: That’s fantastic, lucky girls. Barbara Divehall. Wish we could in my day! Julie Munro-Devine. Where’s the fun in that, ya can’t wear ya pj pants under ya kilts. Alesha Ewers. Finally! We tried in the 80's. Merriann Stewart. How fabulous. I would have loved that, esp riding a bike in winter. Louise Anne Clarkson. Better than the gym tunics that I had to wear. Wendy Caldwell. ‘Stoked’: Liquor store a no go: Great news. We do not need more liquor outlets. Cay Cockerell.

So pleased with this news. Kaylene Stallard. Great news, far too many of them around now, well done, Stoke. Philip Steans. They didn't need it. William Gutsell. Not disappointed to see the application declined. However I'd like to see Liquorland restricted to one Stoke outlet, with their 2nd one being handed to the unsuccessful applicant or another competitor. Dennis Goodman. Tahuna camp looks to future: The council has always been involved. Makes it sound like that it is a new idea. Are they trying to duck their previous responsibility? Jeff-Bev Griggs. The camp proposed turning it into more a resortstyle destination over the course of 20 years. “Rather than a place to erect a tent,” says Eric. Awe-

editorial@nelsonweekly.co.nz facebook.com/nelsonweekly www.nelsonweekly.co.nz some news for the average kiwi family who enjoy a camping holiday, oh, and the young tourists, the ones everyone wants to use camp grounds not freedom camping. Megan Walsh. No results for junior footballers: Nothing wrong with teaching children to be competitive and have ambition as well as being gracious winners AND “losers” - this is way too PC. Nikole Berkett. This is great news! Having coached several young teams and seen the behaviours and unneeded pressures of some of the adults attending games, it is nice to know that should no longer be a part of the sport and that equal play time and player development is the key focuses. Once kids reach representative level they have a competitive competition they can play in if they choose to. Great work Nelson on putting the children first. Matthew Robinson.

Will have to wrap them up in bubble wrap soon. Paulette Casey. How ridiculous, even a four year old should be learning that sometimes life hands them a disappointment, I agree that the sport should be played well, not just about winning, but kids have to learn to handle losing even if they have played their best. Beth James. I can't believe all of the footballers who don't see the benefit in this strategy?? I've watched coaches and parents for some time now who are so concerned about where they are on the ladder that all players don't get a fair go! Of course kids know the score of any game, that's not what this strategy is trying to stop! C’mon, see the bigger picture here. The real competitive kids can go on to rep football where, yes, the best players play and it's not about equal opportunity, but that should not flow through into a normal junior

Nelson Matters Nelson was rightly in celebration mode over the weekend for the opening of the $9.5m refurbishment and strengthening of our School of Music. I am in awe of our pioneers who established the school in 1894. It was a first for New Zealand. It set Nelson apart so early in our history as a city of culture and creativity. The original 500 seat auditorium was opened in 1901 by Lady Ranfurly. Thomas Cawthron donated the organ in 1913. The Rainey House extension was added in 1966 and the Kidson Building in 1971. Murray and Jocelyn Sturgeon generously donated the Steinway piano in 2009. It was a blow for our musi-

cal community when the building had to be closed in 2013 due to earthquake risk. Heritage buildings can be a nightmare to refurbish. Too often we defer so long that demolition becomes inevitable. We lost the beautiful architecture and heritage of Nelson’s Provincial Chambers in the 1960s out of neglect. I am pleased to have helped secure direct Government funding support of $1.5 million as well as contributions from the Rata Foundation of $850,000 and Lotteries of $1.2 million. The Nelson Council provided $3.3 million with the balance from the School of Music and

community fundraising. I am not surprised the cost of the project stretched by about a million dollars as nasty surprises were found during the restoration. The core architectural features have been retained but the building has been made much more usable for modern performances. It has gone from one of our most dangerous buildings in an earthquake to one of our safest. The benefits of this refurbished building are educational, cultural and economic. The educational gain is that it will support a new generation of musical talent. The cultural gain is the hundreds of future musical

Haven't seen any officers down on our walks along Railway Reserve and there's heaps of poo not being picked up by others.

performances we Nelsonians will get to enjoy in this historic venue with superb acoustics. The economic gain for Nelson is being able to host events like the 2019 International Adam Chamber Music Festival that brings millions in visitor spending to our region. I pay tribute to the School of Music team, particularly Chair Roger Taylor, fundraising lead Colleen Marshall and former director Bob Bickerton, along with the Nelson City Council and hundreds of volunteers and supporters. We should also take pride in the local skills we have in firms like Irving Smith Architects and Coman Construction

that successfully delivered this complex project. Nelson is incredibly blessed to have three iconic arts facilities with our Theatre Royal, Suter Art Gallery and School of Music, each amongst the oldest in New Zealand. I gave a speech to Nelson Rotary a decade ago worried that all three faced an uncertain future without major upgrades and set an ambition for each of them to be progressively refurbished. It is an incredible achievement to have all three done. It shows what is possible when Government, Council and community work together. Advert.

Nelson drops in regional rankings Nelson has slumped seven places in the regional economic scoreboard. The NZ Regional Economic Scoreboard takes the latest quarterly regional statistics and ranks the economic performance of New Zealand’s 16 Regional Council areas. The fastest growing regions gain the highest ratings, and a good performance by the national economy raises the ratings of all regions. Ratings are based on 11 measures, including employment, construction, retail trade, and house prices. "Nelson hit a speed bump in the latest Scoreboard, slumping seven places in the rankings to 12th place," the report says. "However, we suspect that this ranking doesn’t do the region justice and the dip may well prove short-lived." The report says the housing market in Nelson remains strong, with annual house sales growth the second highest in the country. Also, Cyclone Gita may have put

"Reluctantly, though, we trim a star off the region’s rating, but as discussed we suspect the region may bounce back quickly.” Tasman grabs the silver medal this quarter, although it has lost top dog status to Northland. The region’s housing market remains key to its fortunes with house prices strong and the construction pipeline also full. As per above, the wider region’s labour market is also strong. "From here, we expect more of the same as the outlook for the region’s key industries, such as horticulture, remain strong.”

Nelson mum Monika Lehnhardt doesn’t have any professional photos of her son and daughter. So when local photographer Kimberly John offered them a free photo shoot, she couldn’t say no. Around 20 people met at Isel Park on Saturday for the opportunity to capture a special moment with their families. Kimberly, who runs Picture Perfect Photography, had seen the local ‘pay it forward’ Facebook page, where Nelsonians of all backgrounds go to share things they think might be of help to others. Food, furniture, heaters, toys and clothes are all common items. But Kimberly wanted to give away something they could treasure forever - photos. Each family that came was treated to a ten minute

Kimberly says she spent three and a half hours taking around 900 photos at the session, and then spent another two hours emailing them to families on Sunday night. “It blew me away with how much interest there was. They all loved the photos, so it’s a really good feeling to know that I’ve made a difference,”

Kimberly says. “I understand life's struggles and hurdles, so to have the community unite together and have the opportunity to photograph their families and create portraits that can be cherished, is honestly empowering.” Another local mum, Nikayla-Grace Gleeson, also attended the shoot with her daughters Sophia and Laila. “Kimberly is fantastic at what she does. The photo shoot she did on Saturday for the Nelson community was amazing. She had a lot of interest and never turned anyone away,” she says. Now Kimberly hopes that more people in Nelson will choose to pay it forward to someone else in need. “Whether that is a kind compliment or perhaps offering your assistance, it is such a powerful act.”

The Nelson residents’ survey is about to begin How often do you use a Nelson Public Library? How do you usually travel to work and how satisfied are you with the city’s public toilets? These are some of the questions that will be asked in the Council’s Annual Residents’ Survey which starts this week (Thursday, 14 June) and will run over the next two weeks. We’re one of many organisations that use public satisfaction surveys to monitor our work. While surveys are not our only source of feedback from the community, they are valuable for Council as they help us improve our performance and focus on residents’ needs. Market research company, National Research Bureau Ltd will interview a random sample of 400 residents by phone and, for the first time, a trial of 50 interviews will also be undertaken face-to-face. It’s expected the survey will take around 10 minutes and we encourage those contacted to take part. We appreciate the time taken by those who do participate, so we can improve services based on your feedback. You recently had the opportunity to tell us your thoughts on what you want for our city over the next 10 years through the draft Long Term Plan process, now it’s time to tell us how you rate our current services and performance. Survey results will be available later in the year.

If you have items you want to give away, simply register online, print off a poster (or pick one up from Council’s service centres) and put it on your mailbox on the day. Second Hand Sunday starts at 10am, so put your unwanted goods on your driveway (not on the footpath) with the poster on display. Please do not put out food or dangerous

Walkers only on Betsy Eyre trail Mayor Rachel Reese unveils an information panel in honour of Joy Bonnington and Edith Shaw in the Fern Garden of Queen's Gardens, with Councillor Mel Courtney and Adrienne, daughter of Edith, left, and Derek, son of Joy, right.

Ferns are always a feature at Queens Gardens

In Council's Out and About – Off Road Tracks and Trails Strategy, it was signalled that the trail between Andrews Farm and the Brook St Bridge that runs nearest to the Brook Stream (Betsy Eyre track on the map) would be allocated exclusively for walking. As the Brook Recreation Hub is now being developed, Council will be adding signage to better direct walkers and cyclists to the correct tracks. We ask that riders please stick to the shared trail (AMP Up on the map) which runs above and parallel to Betsy Eyre trail. Riders, please don't use the embankment between the two trails as a shortcut as this is doing damage to the new native planting in this area. We ask everyone to stay safe and respect other users.

Around 140 years ago, our many varieties of ferns helped to make Nelson a tourist attraction. In the 1880s, the country was in the grip of pteridomania, or fern madness. The passion for fern collecting put Nelson on the map as people came to enjoy the diverse range of species on offer here. The fernery area of the Queens Gardens was established as a result of this trend, and it was completed in 1914. The history of the fernery is laid out on an information panel on the site. It also pays tribute to the late Edith Shaw and Joyce Bonnington, alongside other members of the Nelson Fern Society, for the tireless work they put in during the 1990s to revive and enhance this section of the much-loved gardens. The information panel was unveiled earlier this year by members of Edith and Joyce’s families, Councillor Mel Courtney and Mayor Rachel Reese. Recent plantings, path improvements and new informative signage mean this is the perfect time to visit or re-visit the Queens Gardens Fernery and rediscover why these amazing plants captured the enthusiasm of the nation all those years ago.

Winter at the Children’s Library It’s officially winter and trips to the beach, walks on the hill and playing outside just aren’t as much fun anymore. Luckily there is a lot going on at the library over these colder months. Our Story Time sessions are a fun way to spend the day and are now held six days a week, as we introduce our brand new Saturday Story Time! Held at 11am in the Elma Turner Library, the whole family is invited to read stories and do craft activities with us on those cold winter days. The next session will be on Saturday 16 June and we hope to see you there. Following the success of our Summer Reading Challenge for children, we've launched our first Winter Reading Challenge, which runs until 31 August. Children will be given a puzzle piece each time they complete an activity challenge, which will help their puzzle grow over the weeks. When the participants complete the challenge, they will have their own jigsaw puzzle! Children can sign up by visiting any of our branches. Meanwhile, Anna Maitland, will be playing the flute at the Elma Turner Library as part of the Live Music series on Sunday 24 June at 2pm.

veiled on Sunday. Lyndell died suddenly in 2007 and fellow midwife Andrea Vincent says, after her death, the New Zealand College of Midwives knew they had to do something to honour her memory. “We thought, ‘how can we remember Lyndell, who used to sneak into parks like this and plant placentas’. It just seemed very appropriate” They approached the Nelson City Council and asked them to provide an area for the planting. “The site just seemed magical as

For many, the placenta is something that feeds their baby through to birth, but for the estimated 700 families who have chosen to plant their whenua on the Botanic Hill in Nelson it holds something much more special. It was an emotional day for the family of Nelson midwife Lyndell Rown-Gabay as a plaque commemorating the community “whenua” planting site was un-

soon as we stepped in, and we can keep planting for years to come. It felt right for us that the essence of Nelson babies re-grow Nelson,” says Andrea. Nelson mother Felicity Yellin says she liked the idea of her son Noah always having a place to come that was his. “It’s a beautiful community place and Noah can come here anytime and know that this is his tree, a strong totara, just like him.” Deb Doherty was planting her second son’s placenta and says she first heard about the back-

ground of the plantings from her midwife. “She told us the background behind it and I just really liked the idea of it. The thing that gave my son life, now helping to grow a tree.” Lyndell’s husband Boaz Gabay says his wife had a great respect for the whole birthing process and she would often plant placentas. “She had a very strong respect for tangata whenua’s customs and that’s where it comes from. She instinctively just couldn’t see placentas getting thrown into the incinerators in hospitals.

“The first time we did this the whole side of the hill was just grass and now it’s pretty much a forest. It’s amazing.” Now in its tenth planting year, it’s estimated more than 700 whenua have been homed in the area. Council's contract supervisor Haidi Spence says that the site has created a very special memory. “It’s also a chance to contribute something really special to the community. We’re really helping to create a thriving ecosystem up here which is something to be really proud of.”

GENERATIONS OF NELSON Brought to you by Marsden House

More Than a Car Park

Immigrating to New Zealand at 46 with his wife and six daughters in 1855, Edmund Buxton, an “independent gentleman”, began to influence the settlement. Involved in many commercial enterprises from

horticulture, home-ware stores to insurance, his name extends beyond the well-known car park. It was he, who built and developed two of the areas enduring estates of historic significance, ‘Broadgreen’ in Stoke and ‘Holton’ in Ruby Bay.

Nayland student wins national costume award Charles Anderson Ivy Weir started sewing because she wanted to make her own toys. “I was disappointed with the toys that were in the toyshop – I wanted all the clothes and toys that I made up in my head.” So, she made them herself. Then, as the Nayland College student developed her skills, she also began looking at costume design. “I’m really interested in trying to show the character and their story.” Ivy enjoyed doing drama, but realised that the stage wasn’t for her. Instead, she became involved with the productions – doing hair and m a k e u p for school shows. “I like Ivy Weir. the whole atmosphere, but I was too afraid to go on stage so being able to be part of it is really cool.” So when the opportunity came to put forward a design for the University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival’s costume design award, she got down to her sketch book. Ivy was given Ophelia, the tragic female character from Hamlet. “She is unstable and doesn’t have much control over her life,” says Ivy. “Other people in her life dictate

Photo: Charles Anderson. things for her.” Ivy decided to bring in two key scenes into Ophelia’s dress – one is where she hands out flowers layered with meaning to different characters and the other is her final scene where she dies. The design renders those flowers and the location of Ophelia’s death almost as if the audience is reading a story on her costume. “I wanted to represent her as this trapped-in creature and how that results in her final fate.” When she submitted her design, she didn’t expect to get far. But then she was drawn as

a finalist - meaning her design would be created by a professional designer in Dunedin. “It was so cool to see it in real life. Up until then it had just been in my head.” Then Ivy’s name was called out as the overall winner. “I couldn’t believe it,” she says. “I’ve been thinking about studying fashion so this really affirmed that decision.” She will now travel to Dunedin for a short crash course in costume design and also potentially be selected to go to London to study at the Globe on the banks of the River Thames. “That would be amazing.”

Tell your ghost stories We all have them – those stories you were told as a child by an older sibling who wanted the scare the living daylights out of you. Or perhaps you were on school camp and your peers sat around a campfire trying to outdo each other with the most frightening tale they could imagine. “Ghost Light Theatre wants to capture that feeling of excitement and exhilaration and bring it to the stage,” says manager Debbie Brooks. “We keep these ourselves, or forget about as we get older, but we think it’s time to reveal the skeletons in our closet.” The project is part of a new project by the Bridge St-based theatre called “Ghost Stories”. Supported by Arts Council Nelson, it aims to get people who would not usually think themselves as performers to share a story. “It’s about offering a non-threatening, fun and welcoming environment for

all people to join in on,” Debbie says. The idea is to also record the performances to create an on-going podcast series. Ghost Stories will run several times through the year, all revolving around different themes. “But for the first one we thought we should keep it simple,” Debbie says. “All you need to do is tell your best ghost story. It can be long or short, scary or funny. We want a diverse range of people.” She says people should get in touch by emailing theatre@ghostlight.nz or through its Facebook page. “So come prepared for spine-tingling, scary stories from your friends and neighbours. It'll be a night not to miss. And if you are tech savvy and want to help record it then get in touch.” Ghost Stories is on at Ghost Light Theatre, behind the big red door at 146 Bridge St, on June 21 at 8pm.

Akiko and Tim Krowther with their collaborative exhibition at Morri St Cafe. Photo: Sara Hollyman.

Akiko’s artistic anniversary present Sara Hollyman Akiko Crowther says her latest exhibition is a celebration of love. For the month of June, Morri St Cafe is home to a collaborative exhibition from grand master calligrapher Akiko and her husband Tim Krowther. Akiko is the only grand master Japanese calligrapher in New Zealand and, along with her Yorkshire-born husband Tim, runs the only traditional Japanese calligraphy school in New Zealand. After her mother put her in calligraphy lessons at the age of five, Akiko says eventually she thought there were too many relatives doing the same thing. “I love it, but my grandfather, mother, old uncle and two sisters are all calligraphers, so I decided to be a primary school teacher. Also, my first husband didn’t like calligraphy, so I stopped.” Akiko continued to teach her son and daughter the art of calligraphy in her own home until 22 years later when she divorced her husband. Just one year later she met Tim Crowther, who worked in advertis-

ing and they began moving around the world. “First was Budapest, then Vienna and after we married in 1998, Prague. It was there I saw an ad for a calligraphy teacher at a local Japanese school and thought ‘why not?’” Akiko says this exhibition is a celebration of her 20 years of marriage to Tim, who eight years ago suffered a major stroke. “He lost the words but not the creative fight, art is great rehabilitation, but he concentrates so hard and gets very tired, so one piece can take a long time.” Neither can agree on whose idea it first was to collaborate on the same piece of art, but Akiko says she never would’ve considered painting on canvas if it weren’t for Tim. “Calligraphy is always done on hand-made paper so, for me, canvas was never even a thought.” Gallery manager Eva Kerer says she approached Akiko after seeing her work at the Art Expo. “We’re very privileged and blessed to have them exhibiting.” The exhibition will run until June 30.

Time to stop referee abuse, say codes Jonty Dine Reporter

jonty@nelsonweekly.co.nz

Respect our officials or lose grassroots sport. That is the warning from two local sports bodies who are trying to highlight the issue of abusive spectators. Nelson Basketball and Nelson Netball have teamed up in a collaborative effort to stop the abuse of match officials. Nelson Basketball general manager Frances Tilly and Nelson Netball Centre manager Lindsay Filiata have recently installed signs around Saxton Stadium which portray messages reminding supporters to respect our local whistle blowers. "We started thinking of ways we could get the message out there and we thought a couple of signs would be a good reminder." Lindsay says side-line abuse is most prominent in the junior grades of netball. "It really upsets me, the younger kids aren’t experienced enough

to know how to deal with being intimidated, it’s bullying." While they say adult officials aren’t immune to abuse, they are more equipped to deal with it. "It’s pretty hard to ask a 13-yearold girl to stand up to someone’s Dad and tell them if they carry on they will be ejected from the stadium," Frances says. "Enough is enough and it needs to stop." Frances says supporters can change the tone of a game quite quickly. "We are not trying to stop people from cheering on their teams but it’s just the lack of respect for the officials and not understanding that, if we didn’t have them, we wouldn’t have a game." As an experienced referee, Frances knows firsthand how vile supporters can be. "I’ve been called a lot of names refereeing college basketball, words that you wouldn’t want to print." Frances doesn’t make it known to players she is the general manager of Nelson Basketball and says the players aren’t afraid to let it fly. "If they say that to me I’d hate to

Frances and Lindsay say there are some fantastic pathways to international sport through officiating. Lindsay cites local netball stalwart Vicki Reid as a prime example of the career opportunities. "She wouldn’t have got there as a player, but she can hold her head up high and say I have been to the world champs as a statistician." Frances says refereeing is a much easier route to the representative level. "There can only be 1012 players in a national team to which you have to beat thousands of others, but as a referee you’re probably in a national pool of 20, it is a very viable pathway." Lindsay says the first Saturday the officials saw the new signs, they were rapt. "They loved them, it just gives them something to point to and also makes them feel valued and supported." Lindsay and Frances say, if we all approach the game in the right spirit it would make for a better experience for everyone. "Unless we put a stop to this now, there will not be any grassroots sport."

Aussie Heuir having a giant of a season Jonty Dine Reporter

jonty@nelsonweekly.co.nz

The high-flying Mike Pero Nelson Giants continued their sensational season with another resounding win over the Manawatu Jets on Friday night. The Giants fell just short of a third consecutive century as they comprehensively outclassed the Jets 96-80. A key man once again for the Giants was Australian shooting guard Damon Heuir, who finished with 14 points, nine assists and three rebounds. Damon, who plays for the Cairns Taipan in the Australian NBL, says they were made to work hard for the win. "They hung in there and scrapped and clawed, so full credit to them." Damon says consistency will be key if the Giants are to be a title threat at the business end of the season. "We had a patch in the middle where we struggled a bit, but we got things going again towards the end. We've shown in patches that we are a really good side," Damon says. "So it will just be about

limiting the time we go to sleep on defence." "We know we’ve got a good team, it’s all on the defensive end, we’ve got enough fire power to put up 100 points which is enough to win games in this league, but it’s just about playing defence." The shooting guard says the team culture the franchise has developed this season is "awesome." "Jamie and Bill [Dahlberg] have done a really good job putting a good team on the floor and it’s a great group of guys, everyone gets along, so it makes coming to work every day really easy." Damon says he is relishing his time in the region. "I’m loving it here, I’ve done a bit of exploring and it’s beautiful. It’s just starting to get a bit cold for me, coming from Cairns, so just trying to stay warm." He wants to continue to put in solid performances on the court in hopes of returning to Nelson in 2019. "We’ll see how the rest of the season goes and if they want me back." Damon says winning a

Nelson win college derby Locally Owned and Operated

Jonty Dine

Louis Carmine capped off a busy afternoon in the midfield with Nelson’s final try before Waimea enjoyed a late consolation through Jacob Limmer, as Waimea were well and truly beaten 57-14. Anton says the boys didn’t need much motivation to get up for the local derby. "I didn’t have to say much in the changing rooms, the boys are always up for a test against Waimea and the boys were fizzing all week.”

Nelson’s 1st XV has won local bragging rights after defeating Waimea College 57-14 in a onesided affair on Saturday. A rampant college side ran in nine tries in a dominant display, led once again by its outstanding loose forward trio. The tone was set for a fierce battle in the UC Championship as both teams laid down their respective challenges. Nelson made an early statement, decimating Waimea’s own scrum to earn the first penalty of the game. Both skippers were spoken to and ordered to settle their sides after a tense exchange between the forward packs. Waimea had the first chance to cross the chalk but were foiled by a pilfer from Anton Segner. The inspirational captain then drew first blood for Nelson on the back of a storming run from lock Taya Brown. Nelson scored their second soon after when flanker Fergus Hughes broke away down the blindside and linked with his winger Connor Johnston. Waimea had a golden opportunity to open their account when winger Duncan Drysdale chased

piece as Waimea’s lineout fell apart, however they did have another chance to register points right on the stroke of half-time as Drysdale had an unmarked man outside him with the line in sight but passed the ball into touch to close the half. Bruising centre Vaea Tutuila ensured the ascendancy remained with the home side after oranges with a huge bust up field, the ever-present Fergus finishing off the sweeping movement with his

second five pointer. Drysdale then made up for his earlier blunders as he pounced on a loose offload from Nelson half back Mason Lind to streak 30 metres and score Waimea’s opener. Nelson responded immediately as Anton again broke the line off a lineout and slipped the ball to Nico, who took his personal points tally to 17. With a host of new combinations, Nelson lost a bit of fluency in the final fifteen, before replacement half back David Zohrab brought up the half century following another break from Fergus.

a chip and found himself alone in goal only needing to force the ball, but couldn’t control it. Nelson made them pay and stretched their lead further after another surging run from Anton who produced a miracle reverse flick for winger Daniel Rogers. First five Nico Barton was in hot form with the boot, nailing his third difficult conversion for a 26-0 advantage. Waimea began to make simple errors, and when their restart did not find the 10-metre mark lock Taya Brown dotted down after some stunning interplay. Nelson were dominant at set

In the NPD Tasman Trophy, a late surge wasn’t enough to save Nelson RFC as they slumped to a 26-22 loss to Renwick at Neale Park. In the weekend’s match of the round, the Marlborough sub union champions, Waitohi hosted Nelson Bays runners up, Marist with the hosts running out 45-22 winners in Picton. Fresh off their Nelson Bays Subunion win, the Stoke Eagles travelled to Awarua Park to take on Moutere, winning 45-31. In other results, East Coast defeated Wanderers 20-15 at Seddon Domain while Central and Kahurangi piled on the points at Lansdowne Park with Central winning 61-41.

Enrolments open for 2019

Clean sweep for junior tennis team in Timaru Tasman's top young tennis guns won the South Island teams event in Timaru earlier this month. The Tasman team, consisting of 8 Nelson and 8 Marlborough players, took on four other associations in the annual 10s and 12s age group. Tasman won both the 10s and 12s trophy as well as the overall winners trophy. The 10s team had a testing first tie against South Canterbury, with the boys triumphant in both singles and doubles, while the girls came up against tough competition. Both the girls and the boys came to the fore against Otago, romping home with a comprehensive win 11-1. Southland showed strength across the 10s with the final

score dependent on the doubles matches; Connor Edmonds (Tahuna) and Daniel Tomlinson (Hope) warmed up their doubles game in the second set to win in a tie breaker against Leo Tagg and Kees Cummings 1/4, 4/1 8/6, the final score 7-5 in Tasman’s favour. Despite the weather shortening the tie on the final day against Canterbury Country, both Lucy Mitchell (Nelson) and Maisson Begg (Nelson) won their singles; Mitchell 5/4, 5/4 against Gemma Hyslop and Begg 4/2, 4/1 against Libby Feutz. Nelson 10s combined well with a proficient Marlborough 10s team to win the 10s section of the fixture. A strong Tasman 12s team got off to a sprint start with a 12-0

win against both South Canterbury and Otago, followed by a 9-3 win against Southland. A rain-shortened final tie against Canterbury Country saw Tasman take the win 6-4. Harry Pugh (Hope) and Lachie Mackay-Smith (Mapua) successfully won all their matches throughout the tie, with Ashley Welsh conceding 1 doubles and Maia Kininmonth only a doubles and singles. The Talley’s Nelson representative 10s and 12s tennis team and Marlborough players proved a formidable team this season, bringing home all three trophies. Nelson players; Ashley Welsh, Maia Kininmonth, Harry Pugh, Lachie MacKaySmith, Lucy Mitchell, Maisson Begg, Connor Edmonds, Daniel Tomlinson.

rugby community after upsetting Marist 19-10 in a brutally physical final. On the back of some dogged defence, and an outstanding performance from its loose forward trio, Stoke won its first Car Company division one title since 2010, in blustery conditions at Tahunanui Fields on Queen's Birthday Monday. After skipper Sam Chamberlain got the visitors on the board early following a Jack Grooby intercept, the Eagles went about defending their line with their lives, before their everpresent openside Anty Burnett sealed the deal for Stoke, crashing over in the left-hand corner. Sam says he was shattered after the brutal final. "I’m ecstatic, what a game of footy.” Sam says his side spoke throughout the week leading up to the game about how defence wins championships. "Marist really took it to us, but our frontline really stepped up, I am incred-

ibly proud.” Sam says they drew on the belief garnered from their upset over Nelson in the semi-final. "I can’t compliment the resistance the boys showed enough, it was immense.” In his third season with Stoke, Sam says it has been a special year for the club. “We have been working hard and things just started to click.” Sam says one of the main contributors to success has been the culture created within the team. “We try to do everything as a squad.” The fleet-footed fullback credits his halves' combination, as well as their renowned loose forward trio, for their win against Marist. “Jack Grooby has made a big difference at nine and Bailey [McQuade] really stood up at 10 this year, while Hugo [Nankivell] and Anty have just been phenom-

enal." While in hot form himself, Sam is not looking ahead at a potential Mako call-up later in the year. “I’m just keeping my focus on the club at this stage and whatever happens later, happens.” He says the focus now shifts to backing up their sub-union win with a NPD Tasman Trophy title. “We definitely enjoyed ourselves on Monday night but will now refocus on getting the double, to get another crack at the big dance would be awesome.” With the retention of the majority of last year’s squad and experienced coach Graham Pitman at the helm, the club was confident of doing the business this season. Graham was joined by backs coach Gary Alsop who took the Stoke Division 2 team into the semi-finals last year, as well as managing the Tasman Mako Women’s Team. Gary says it has been a special season so far, the side's success coming on the back of some very hard work and a great team culture. “That’s what our players talk about, belief and defence winning games, and that’s what they did.” Gary says Stoke got great value

He says it is an exciting time for the club going forward. “Guys from the B team have performed every time they have played for us, so the club is strong across the board.� Graham says having a strong nucleus of retained local players, who have been with the team for the last couple of seasons, was critical to the side's success. Ex-Junior Warrior’s player To-

However, it was the foundation laid by Stoke's forward back that enabled the speedsters to dazzle. Stoke welcomed back prop Blair Prinsep who faced 12 months on the side-line during the 2017 season, his presence giving Stoke a massive advantage at scrum time. While they lost the services of Paripari Parkinson to the Highlanders, Stoke signed ex Fijian 7’s international player Isei Lewaqai who was sensational throughout the campaign.

Waka ama masters looking for new crew Jonty Dine

While their bodies may be slowing down, the senior members of the Whai Rere waka ama crew are still as competitive as ever. The Whai Rere crew are part of the Maitahi Outrigger Canoe Club. Crew member John Young says the team has been together about five years. “A few of us sort of drifted into the club for various reasons and on one particular

day there were a few more senior paddlers together, so the decision was made to formalise it.” During that initial paddle, a chance marine life encounter lead to the crew name. “When we were loading the waka onto the trailer, a stingray swam around the marina and passed under our feet.” John says a fellow crew member took this as a sign and the team was named Whai Rere or “stingray flow.”

The crew are all aged over 65 with the eldest member 73-years-old. John says there are about nine crew members ready to go at any time including recent QSM recipient Penny Molnar. “Penny is our matriarch and our main steerer.” John says while the crew don’t have great success in winning, they have won the golden masters at the annual Nelson Lakes race. “The unfortunate thing about being old is it’s hard to compete

against these juniors.” The 70-year-old is putting out the call for other seniors to get involved, “We are looking for more 60 plus members, male or female so we can have competitions amongst our own age groups.” John says the beauty of waka ama is that each paddle is very different be it the scenery, sea conditions or wildlife. “It’s a great sport, ok it can be a little cold at his time of year but

we had a glorious day on Saturday around Haulashore Island and ran into a pod of dusky dolphins which was just magic.” He says it is a fantastic way to harness his competitive spirit. “It’s physically a great sport, being old we all have injuries, but we manage quite well, and it caters for people who have played sport all their life but can no longer keep up.” To register your interest with the club contact John on 0211107547.

Race weekend a success for harness racing club Andrew Board A new national record and four Nelson winners were highlights of the Nelson Harness Racing Club’s Winter Meet on Friday and Sunday. But the spotlight shone brightest on Cole Porter, with the Christchurch horse claiming the feature race double. Cole Porter’s win in the Prelude Cup on Friday and then the Nelson Pine Industries Nelson Winter Cup on Sunday, was a stunning effort considering Friday’s race was just its tenth start. It strode home to win the cup by three-quarters of a length over Unico Legend and Pembrook’s Passion, both of Canterbury. Its win came in front of a bumper Nelson crowd with Nelson Harness Racing Club president Kristie Hill saying the turnout was a huge boost. “It's been a fantastic weekend, great weather, great crowds, great turnover and great fields." The on-course takings were up on Friday, compared to the year before, and Sunday was much

ards, who competed in the senior ladies, and cadet skaters Holly Ward and Lydia Stack. All four skaters achieved personal best times in their time trials. A thrilling finish saw Tiara finish first equal in the senior ladies 1000m, storming home from third for a photo finish. Officials were unable to determine a winner after video review and awarded both skaters the gold. Tiara also ended the weekend with a silver medal in the 3000m and a bronze in the 500m, taking a haul of six. Holly bagged herself a silver medal and finished fourth overall in the cadet’s category, while Lydia finished seventh.

Star speedskater Garth Jameson recently confirmed his status as one of the fastest. The Nelson skater took home seven gold medals at the Oceania Championships held in Timaru earlier this year. Garth unsurprisingly finished first overall in the masters open, including a record time in the 3000m. The veteran also won the marathon on the final day of competition. Nelson’s speed skaters had a strong showing at the national championships, winning fourteen medals in total. Garth was joined by Tiara Rich-
