‘He was just so perfect’ Charles Anderson Editor EXCLUSIVE

The mother of a baby boy who died after being involved in a head-on accident says she is grateful that she got to spend five short days with him before life support was switched off.

The parents, or the boy, cannot be named due to a suppression order, but say that the incident, which occurred on Nelson’s Waimea Rd two weeks ago, has left them traumatised and suffering nightmares. But while the mother says she feels robbed of her son, she harbours no hate towards the alleged

There is no point wasting energy.” Up until falling pregnant, the couple was told that it was unlikely they would ever have a child. Two weeks ago, they were “in countdown mode” and ready to celebrate their new baby – she was 30-weeks pregnant. They were driving home from a friend’s house when they saw headlights

before it slammed head-on into their car. Her partner was driving and the shock sent the steering wheel into his chest, breaking his sternum. “I just turned to her and asked ‘are you alright babe’? She said ‘no’.”

River Kitchen is charging 20 cents for takeaway cups, with the proceeds going to charity. They hope it will make people think twice about using single-use cups. Do you think this is a good idea?

Then he pulled off his seatbelt and kicked open the door of the crumpled car. He limped around to his partner’s side and ripped open her door and knelt with her. Then someone tried to pull him away. “That’s when the pain shot through me and I just blacked out on the road.” His partner was rushed to Nelson Hospital where she was put under general anaesthetic and had her son via c-section. “When he was born he was awake, eyes open and he was just so perfect,” she says. “For the first five days we were living on hope and faith.” Then next morning the mother and her son were flown to Wellington Hospital but over the course of five days, he deteriorated. “We didn’t know at first

Then, last Saturday the results of an MRI scan showed that there was severe bleeding on his brain and he wouldn’t make it. On that last day, they were finally able to hold their son. “Up until his death he was still grabbing your fingers, he knew you were there,” his father says.

“It was so heart-breaking to disconnect everything. It felt there was more we could do.” They say the support from all the hospital staff, Ronald McDonald House and the Flying Doctors, who transported them both from Nelson, had been incredible. They also wanted to thank their friends, family and the wider community for helping

through what they say has been the worst time of their lives. “It’s the hardest thing we have ever had to deal with,” says the father. The mother says she still has nightmares about headlights and struggles to get back into a car. But on Saturday they had a farewell for their son at the Gardens of Remembrance in Hope. They played music and let balloons go. “It was a lovely send off,” the mother says. They say they are coping day by day and aren’t sure how they will deal with impending court proceedings against the alleged driver. The baby’s grandmother says she has taken heart at the response from around the country. “That a nation is grieving with us. It’s comforting to know you’re not on your own.”

Neighbours ‘live in fear’ of rain

For the 20 years that Rose Brady lived at her home on Russell St there had never been any issues with stormwater runoff. She had flat lawn, well maintained retaining walls and a healthy vegetable garden. Then, three years ago, the Nelson City Council did a big reroading project on Queens Rd in Stepneyville. Now that flat lawn is a bulging, slanted piece of grass and earth. Her retaining walls have failed in some areas and are close to collapsing in others. Her neighbour Justin Brough, who lives above her, has a “chasm” running through his property that turns into a “river” when it rains. “Hundreds of cubic metres of soil has shifted down,” Rose says. Even when it is drought the concrete around her, and neighbour Sarah Lewis’ homes, is wet. They worry that one day the huge mass of earth that sits above their properties will give way. “All of us live in fear of the next big rain,” Rose says.

Between them and their two other immediate neighbours, they say they have called council several times to investigate the issue. But there has been no action. Rose has an EQC claim that work is due to start on soon – bringing diggers onto her property, via her vegetable garden, to start putting in huge retaining walls. “EQC has said that it’s from stormwater runoff,” she says. Justin says to put in those walls on his property will cost him about $40,000, even though EQC only gave him $5000. “It’s horrendous,” he says. “It’s a bloody shame.” Rose also says, when the reroading went on, many of the

drains were not connected back up to each other so there are huge overflows. She presented at the council’s Long Term Plan hearings last week where she laid out the issues associated with the area. All the neighbours want is a thorough investigation of what happens in heavy rain and why the road was changed to have such a negative effect on drainage in the first place. Councillor Ian Barker told Rose at the meeting that there was some work being undertaken around surface flooding on Queens Rd. “They have said they will have a look and we will be very grateful,” Rose says. “We just want the thing sorted.”

Head knocks force change of career Andrew Board Reporter

Former Mako rugby captain Shane Christie has officially ended his playing career – swapping his playing boots for a coaches’ clipboard. Shane, 32, has been side-lined since having concussion issues during 2016 and officially retired after receiving a medical report last week. His last game was in November 2016 when he left the field with concussion-like systoms during a Maori All Blacks match in the United States. But his rugby career isn’t over as he transitions from a player into a coach. Shane has been contracted by the Tasman Rugby Union to be the Mako head forward coach for the 2018 season after spending the previous Mitre 10 Cup campaign as a non-playing advisor. He says he feels like an apprentice again. “It certainly knocks you down a peg or two. Being the captain of the team to being a rookie coach, you’ve got to start from scratch. It’s cool, it breaks you down, it’s good. I thought I knew my stuff, but I don’t.” Shane is part of a four-man coaching set-up, with Leon MacDonald as head coach, Andrew Goodman as backs and defence

coach and Clarke Dermody as set-piece coach. “I’m excited to have the opportunity and to be there with Leon, who has been with the Mako for eight years, and Andrew Goodman who I played with for a couple of seasons. It’s awesome to move onto another phase with someone I played with and are good mates with.” He says the goal for this season is to do something that eluded him as a player – win the Mitre 10 Cup premiership. “We’ve been in three finals and have lost them all, but hopefully we’ve learnt from that. I’m really excited about the team we have this year and what we can achieve, it’s exciting.” Shane grew up in Canvastown, was schooled in Wellington before moving to Nelson as an apprentice builder and to play club rugby for Nelson. It took him four years to earn a spot in the team and another season to cement himself as the region’s top open-side flanker. In 2013 he was made captain and that coincided with the Mako becoming one of the country’s top provincial side, winning the Mitre 10 Cup championship. That same year he was picked up by the Crusaders but found more playing time with the Highlanders the following season. His performances there saw him become co-captain of the cham-

Shane says after his last head knock he tried for six months to

return to the field and spent last Super Rugby season with the Highlanders trying to regain fitness. “I spent six months trying to come right, it wasn’t until about May or June 2017 that I thought I might not come right from this.

It was tough, it was a tough year. Concussion is pretty serious, people who go through it, it’s full on. You go from being a pretty full-on professional rugby player to living like a 60 year old, almost overnight. The hardest thing is the different mindset that you need.” He says the highlights of his playing career include winning the Mitre 10 Cup Championship at Trafalgar Park. “It was amazing. They had the kick to win at the end and our supporters group were just giving it to him. I could hear them over my shoulder and he shanked it, those 60 guys won that game for us. That was a real highlight,” he says. Shane says he’s had great support from his family, colleagues at the Tasman Rugby Union, and Highlanders during the last year. “I’d like say a big thank you to all the players but especially the Mako and Highlander players. The wins and losses aside, playing and training with my mates has always been the most satisfying part of rugby.” As a coach Shane says he has a lot to learn but is treating his new job like his last one. “For me it’s all about intent. Turning up and doing the best job you can and, if success comes from that, then great.” If his coaching career turns out anything like his playing days, success shouldn’t be too far away.

Charge to change coffee cup culture Kate Russell A Nelson cafe owner is on a mission to get coffee drinkers to think twice before choosing takeaway cups. Clare Fleming from River Kitchen has started charging extra for takeaway cups, giving the proceeds to a local environmental charity. The 20 cent charge covers the cost of the cup, and even though it’s biodegradable, she is hoping it will help cut back on the 3000 - 4000 cups they churn through every month. “Our main grudge is people asking for their coffee in a takeaway cup and then drinking it in the cafe. On some days, half of our takeaway coffees are drunk in-house,” says Clare. “That’s our aim – to make people think about their waste.” And even though they only started the charge on Friday, Clare says they’ve had great feedback. “I’d say 95 per cent of customers have been enthusiastic. We’ll alternate charities, this month it’s the Environment Centre.”

Clare also says since they opened five years ago, she’s seen a huge shift in people’s attitudes towards takeaway cup waste and sales of their reusable coffee cups have increased. Another local café who is succeeding in discouraging people from reaching for the takeaway cup is Jaks Island. “We’ve created a bit of a culture here with our regulars - at least 85 per cent of our customers now bring their own cup,” says coowner Kate Manley. When you buy a reusable coffee cup they will fill it up with a free coffee and give you a 50 cent discount every time you use it. “It has been a hugely popular incentive - as soon as you say ‘free coffee and 50 cent discount’, people are sold.” While Clare thinks its “unrealistic” to completely ban takeaway cups, she would like to see more cafés switch to using compostable cups. “They cost twice as much, but at least we know they aren’t going sit in the landfill forever.”

Heart-beat art captures a special moment Kate Russell Reporter

Hearing your baby’s heartbeat for the first time is a special moment for any new parent but for Sam and Pip Collins it was a moment they wanted to treasure forever. The Nelson couple are 21 weeks pregnant with their first child after five long years of struggling to get pregnant. Now they are helping other parents celebrate their pregnancies through their custommade sound wave artwork called Baby Beatz NZ. Sam says the idea came to him when they first heard the sound of their baby’s heartbeat through the fetal doppler at their 16 week scan. “Hearing it was so special and magical for us. It really resonated for me – it was the first tangible sign of life.” With a photography and ICT background, he saw the opportunity to turn the sound waves into something they could see and keep forever. He took a sound recording of the scan, stripped the sound back and used various software programmes to transform it into a piece of artwork.

Sam and Pip Collins want to normalise infertility and help people celebrate pregnancy with their unique heartbeat sound wave artwork called Baby Beatz NZ. Photo: Kate Russell. Now Pip says their long journey with infertility has inspired them to create similar artworks for others. Three years ago the couple suffered a miscarriage at seven weeks. After that, Pip says they “tried everything” to increase their changes of falling pregnant again. And now, after two years of hormone replacement therapy, they are expecting their bundle of joy this September. “Having this artwork is just another representation of our achievement,” says Pip. “So many women have miscarriages and fertility issues –

even people who are close to us, but don’t talk about it. It’s so unbelievably common and I guess we want to normalise it and encourage people like us not give up.” Sam says to produce an artwork, all you need to do is send them a short cellphone video or sound recording, pick your colours, text, size and format and they will handle the rest. “It’s about treasuring every moment with them and celebrating every milestone, even before they are born.” For more info, visit 'Baby Beatz NZ' on Facebook or email

Nurses: Be fair to those who care Sara Hollyman Reporter

‘Be fair to those who care’ was just one of the chants that rang out along Trafalgar St on Saturday, when more than 100 nurses and their supporters gathered to support the Nurse Florence movement. The day marked International Nurses Day and co-organiser Maria Briggs said it should be a day for celebrating the work that nurses do. “Unfortunately, a lot of our nurses are getting burnt out, they’re really struggling day to day.

“They’re feeling anxious before they go out on their shifts because they’re not sure what’s going to happen when they get there.” She said that nurses are facing constant under-staffing issues and it’s time their voices are heard. “Today we’re marching for safer staffing levels in our jobs, it’s really difficult out there, on the wards, the high numbers of patients, we just don’t have enough staff on at all times.” Maria says that a lot of people are thinking that it’s just about the nurses wanting more money, but to them it’s much more than that.

“We want to be heard because nurses in general have got such a caring nature, they don’t usually like to speak up. "We look after our patients like they’re our family, our whanau, we just want to make sure that the rights of our patients are at the forefront and that they get the best care possible.” The Nurse Florence movement was set up by two anonymous nurses from opposite ends of the country in a bid to give nurses a voice. They wanted nurse’s stories to be heard anonymously and said nurses felt silenced in their jobs as they needed to respect the privacy of their patients.

Four bright young sparks are putting their heads together to compete against some of the world’s best problem solvers. Nelson College Preparatory School students Fergus Richards, Ollie Taylor, Preston Holder and Tom Lynch, all 12, are off to Wisconsin in the United States next month for the International Future Problem Solving Championships. The students earned their place after winning the junior division at the national finals, and will compete with 80 teams and 2000 kids from around the globe. Future problem solving is an international educational programme that develops creative, critical and caring thinking skills and Nelson College FPS teacher Sarah Watts says the school has always produced world-class teams. “It will be the trip of a lifetime for these young men – they’ve been

pating the ways that technology might be used against citizens in the future,” says Sarah. “They are also looking at ways to identify criminals, potential criminals

and predict and identify criminal behaviour and how to use science to identify perpetrators of crime.” While at the host university (the University of Wisconsin in La Crosse) they will have a few days to get to know the others through group workshops and activities as well as an opening ceremony. Team member Ollie Taylor says getting a result would be “absolutely amazing” but more than anything, he can’t wait for the experience. “We’ll get to exchange mementos with other countries and do cultural dances, so we’ll probably do the haka,” says Ollie. “It’s going to be nerve-racking presenting to so many people, but it’s going to be amazing to represent New Zealand and compete for our country.” In order to support their trip, a quiz night and art auction is being held at the Nelson College Hall, this Friday, 18 May, starting at 7pm. Tables of 8-10 people cost $80 and there will be prizes from local businesses. To book, email

Guardians of library say ‘job done’

The Guardians of Nellie Nightingale Library members from left; Joan Owen, Sylvia Shand, Martin Shand, Ian Barker, Francis Waye, Ros Gibney, Aria Gibney and Patricia Taylor. Photo: Supplied.

Charles Anderson A group which began almost 20 years ago to fight to ensure Nellie Nightingale’s wishes of having a library in Tahunanui, has been disbanded. “Everyone is feeling very pleased that their job is done,” says Guardians of Nellie Nightingale Library chair Ian Barker. The group was set up in 2001 when the Nelson City Council was looking at proposals to move the library. It was built in 1978, as part of a bequest from local woman Nellie Nightingale, who expressly wanted a library and restroom set up on the waterfront. Nellie died in 1943 after building businesses and a property portfolio in Takaka and Tahunanui. However, it took many years for a library to be built. “Over the years the battle had to be kept on as there were ongoing moves to shift the library or use the funds for something else,” says Ian. However, last year the council completed a $240,000 renovation of the library with help from the remaining bequest funds. The library got carpet, new heating and security systems, improvements to its lobby, painting and varnishing, and have a new service desk installed. There was also a re-configuration made to both the staff room and the toilets, and a north side entry ramp for greater accessibility. The hope was to make it more of a community hub that was welcoming to all rather than just a library. Ian says the guardians all feel like the reason the set the trust up no longer exists, so last week held their final AGM. “But we said at that meeting that if the library ever comes under risk again we will rise like the phoenix.”

Cawthron responds to oyster killing virus article Two weeks ago the Nelson Weekly published a story in partnernship with news website of the year Newsroom. The story outlined the Cawthron Institute’s role in the outbreak of a oyster killing virus that shut down a burgeoning aquaculture industry. The institute was given the opporunity to respond at the time but declined. Here the its chief executive Charles Eason reponds: The piece claimed that Bonamia ostreae’s discovery in 2015 happened by chance. This is misleading. The material used for the analysis was from oysters originally taken from farms in the Marlborough Sounds collected as part of one of Cawthron Institute’s monitoring programmes. The student who undertook the testing was working with a Cawthron scientist and the MPI Animal Health Laboratory. Our monitoring and the use of sophisticated molecular tests enabled the discovery of this parasite in flat oysters for the first time. The finding was not a secret and was published in 2016 in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. If we had not made and published this unexpected discovery, things could be far worse. The piece suggested that material may have been transferred from Cawthron to Big Glory Bay. Cawthron has never sent flat oysters to Big Glory Bay. The piece also refered to a culture of silence or cover-up. It is very important to note that Cawthron communicated fully and collaboratively from the discovery of Bonamia ostreae onwards. Cawthron’s biosecurity response then and since has been appropriate, timely and robust. The piece implied Cawthron has profited from the outbreak. The programmes referred to in the article are led and coordinated by Cawthron, however all those mentioned involve Crown Research Insititutes, NZ Universities and international collaborations. The aim of the new research is to stop or reduce the risk of disease outbreaks like this in the future, taking into account global environmental changes (warming, acidification, pollution) and increasing global connectedness. The Bonamia ostreae outbreak was devastating for all affected. Outbreaks such as these inevitably prompt our scientists to want to help and seek solutions to help industry to protect itself and people’s livelihoods for the future.

Your Voice Rate Rises: Nelson council is using the Local Government Index as justification for its nearly 4 per cent rate rise this year and in subsequent years. However, at the moment the index is actually lower than the Consumer Price Index. One cannot justify the excessive spending of council on the basis that one sector of the economy must receive priority. Those people in Nelson on modest or low incomes cannot possibly keep up with council’s exorbitant rate rises. Dan McGuire Smoking: To Whom It May Concern, Am reading the article about people quitting smoking in droves. As an ex smoker, as is hubbie, I personally agree with Dharmendra Patel when he said that why should it just be smokers that cop all the tax hikes? Why aren't fast food outlets, sugary drinks, and alcohol heavily taxed as well? Just putting the question out there. Shirley Barrow Businesses welcome dogs into city: Into? Ugh. Outside. Cleaning these places is tough rough without dog hair and smells, too. I love dogs. I enjoy cafes. But dine al fresco, or take pooch to the dog park cafe. Next thing I'll be able to bring my beloved cats shopping with me. Andrea Grocott

Mine lies very quietly beside my chair on the floor, as do others I have observed in the many visits I make to outdoor cafes that are dog-friendly. I can assure you that I have seen NO ONE get covered in dog hair. I would be more concerned about the bird life that seems to populate most of our cafe tables. Lorraine Lindsay Awesome, great idea. Leigh Jukes-Smart. Love it! Obviously, so long as dog owners are responsible people. Shana Reynish Nelsonians quitting smoking in droves: Now this is working...... Hope soon it is put on liquor as this creates havoc for people everyday too!! Just saying. Hillary Tupe I feel like smokers have finally become the minority. Carmyn Hunt Still see low income people smoking, beats me how they can afford it. Brenda Kenny Tight-knit fibre co-op to close doors: I always love going into fibre spectrum and having a look at all the beautiful creations. Well done ladies, and will be sad to see you go! Lee Collins

There are the thousands of volunteers who manage, coach, fundraise, referee and support our sports teams and individuals. There are also generous local business sponsors like Nelson Pine, Mike Pero, the Car Company and many others that help fund our clubs and teams. We also should take pride in the standard of our facilities. I stood in a blank field 30 years ago with then Mayors Peter Malone and Kerry Marshall as we dreamed of a multi sports regional facility. Both our councils deserve credit for the way they have cooper-

ated and invested in developing the Saxton complex. A tribute to the Saxton Velodrome Trust, chaired by Bruce Fraser, on getting this latest facility completed. I was out with the family on Sunday, and like many others, were enjoying the new ride. The childrens road safety training facility inside the velodrome is a must do for young families. I also praise the Nelson City Council for seeing through the upgrade of the Trafalgar Centre. It was great to join a wild Nelson crowd for the nail biting 103100 Giants win in their latest home game.

Played with Judy (just subbed in for her team) recently - she is the loveliest, friendliest lady .... Some great skills but actually a good laugh on the court too... Inspirational. Michael Kristy Hammond A legend at the courts, Judy. Two great role models in the game for you, Lily. Cate Gully What an inspiration Judy is. Amazing trio. Robynn Woodhouse Great stuff, beautiful people. Karla Guerin Baydon’s Battle: What a brave young man. Rochelle Mcgrath An inspiration to others. You’re doing amazing!! Jamie-lee Ross Love and blessings to you, young man! Very brave, and very sad. Tania Elliott One can only wish him all the best and make sure he has lots of family time. Jocelyn Besier To have your say on any local issue email

Sad, end of a lovely era. Lorraine McColm

Nelson Matters I had a colleague in Parliament this week rib me on what was in Nelson’s water that makes our sports teams so competitive. We should take pride that our teams like Nelson Giants, Tasman Mako and Tasman United are performing at a level way in excess of our population. We also took a healthy stash of Commonwealth Games medals with Jo Edwards (Womens Bowls), Anita McLaren and Kelsey Smith (Womens Hockey) and Trael Joss and Andrew Knewstubb (Mens rugby). It is not Nelson’s water that produces this sporting success but years of effort.

Three generations on the netball court: Well done Judy, you outlasted me. Donna Madden

544 Waimea Road, Nelson

The basketball was electrifying, but organisers also deserve credit for the food, commentary and entertainment. The relocation of the velodrome to Saxton will make for a better facility at Trafalgar Park whose grounds are also being upgraded. We have the most exciting ever season ahead with our first ever All Blacks game in Nelson on 8 September. The Tasman Mako are a remarkable story of success that began with the visionary dreams a decade ago from Max Spence and others to unite the strengths of Nelson and Marlborough rugby. I used to get excited when the

Mako beat teams like Hawkes Bay and Manawatu but they are now winning against the giants of rugby like Canterbury, Waikato and Auckland. They have made three of the last four season’s finals. We need to get behind them for their home games in September and October. Tasman United Football is even newer than the Mako but are being coming increasingly competitive and have just appointed a new manager. Their Trafalgar Park games are free and from October, offer great family entertainment. Advt.

A group of local rugby players are combatting concussion head on. The Nelson College students have developed a product to aid the recovery for players suffering symptoms of concussion. James Barron, Callum McNab and Sam Christian with partners Louie Hadfield, Alfie Mansfield, Joshua McIntyre and Darcy Tunnicliff created ‘Concussion Kit,’ as part of their young enterprise scheme. Callum says they thought about what a relevant market is and what is a problem area. “We are all rugby players and concussion is a huge issue at the moment, so we wanted to something to help.” The kit contains a number of vital supplements to aid a rapid recovery. “It took a bit of trial and error,” James says. In the pack are five fish oil tablets, four magnesium tablets, two turmeric tablets and ten Panadol. The kit also has information cards featuring instant questions like where are we, who are we playing? “It teaches to look for the physical signs such as loss of consciousness, double vision, vomiting,” James says. “These are the red flags that the player needs to go to hospital, it just makes it easier to diagnose," Sam says. The boys wanted to target awareness around concussion while also easing its effects. Sam says they wanted people to realise it is a serious injury and you need to treat it as such. “I’ve had a light one last year, it’s definitely not a pleasant experience,” says James. The supplements were all chosen after independent research. James says magnesium helps prevent a delayed brain injury. “If you get a head knock you can lose up to 50 per cent of the magnesium in your brain.” The turmeric acts as a natural anti-inflammatory in the brain and the omega three supports recovery and growth repair. The kits cost $8.36 to produce and the boys are selling them for $15. “We’re just hoping to get some money behind us to carry out more research and make our product even more efficient,” Callum says. Nelson College have bought two packs each for their eight rugby teams and the boys are currently pitching their product to the local rugby clubs and the Tasman Rugby Union. “They all seem very interested, we have had some great feedback." Their product has already won the first phase of the regional youth enterprise competition. Nelson College student Cody Beaumont suffered his second head knock of the season on Saturday May 5. He says the pack has helped ease his concussion symptoms. “About six weeks ago I was playing a pre-season game for the 1st XV against Hanmer and I got hit in a good, legal tackle and last week I got another head knock and was taken to hospital.” Cody says the kit has helped the headaches and dizziness. “I feel like I can concentrate a lot better.” For more information, visit their Facebook page

Daily Grind, the popular mobile coffee service, has a fab new spot at Tahuna Beach! Owner Alesha Marshall is rapt with her new base, where she will make her typically divine hot Kush coffee, which can be especially gratifying on these colder winter days! Alesha began Daily Grind two years ago, bringing 12 years of previous local barista experience to the business. “I was working in the food industry making a lot of coffees, when I realised I would like to do it for myself,” says Alesha. “I go out to people upon request: private functions; weddings; family reunions; workplace shouts; meetings; sports events and so on. I go wherever coffee is required! People can enjoy a a lovely hot coffee without having to go anywhere! I make all kinds of coffees, using local Kush coffee beans, and offer milk alternatives such as almond and soy. I also make hot chocolates, chai’s, teas, herbal teas, and offer fizzy drinks at special events.” To locate Daily Grind’s new base at Tahuna Beach, it will be situated next to Real Fruit Ice cream, and “because I can utilize the whole playing field, in the morning I will be opposite KFC, where people driving past can stop to get a hot coffee!” Phone 028 400 7764.

OUR NELSON Native fish eggs found in upper Brook The clear waters of the upper Brook Stream are proving to be a good spawning site for the threatened koaro, one of our declining species of native fish. Council’s freshwater science team recently discovered fresh eggs in the upper Brook, the second year in a row that eggs have been found in this area. Koaro live in fast flowing streams, with a preference for streams with native bush cover. They feed on insects drifting in the stream and are famous for their amazing climbing abilities. They are one of the five species often caught in whitebait nets, contributing to their decline. We’ll be carrying out more surveys of the Brook stream over the winter to understand more about the spawning patterns of koaro and other native fish.

Nelson City Events Strategy adopted Council has adopted the Nelson City Events Strategy. The Strategy will provide greater clarity for the community and will guide Council’s future support of events. The strategy has been developed in conjunction with the Nelson Regional Development Agency (NRDA) and with input from a range of stakeholders. Under the strategy, Council will continue to provide significant funding for events through the Nelson Events Fund. This will have two components, one to support events that foster community well-being and social outcomes, the other to support events that grow Nelson’s economy. Mayor Rachel Reese says, “Nelson can be proud of its long history of developing unique events like the Adam Chamber Music Festival or the Masked Parade, which bring our community together and also attract visitors to our city. “The new Strategy provides clear direction for how we

intend to build on that reputation and continue to grow a rich events calendar. As a Council, we need to know we’re supporting the rights events at the right time to bring value to the community for our investment. “The Strategy is underpinned by a partnership approach. Council is just one of many partners working together to deliver an exciting range of events to the city across the year. These events don’t just contribute to our economy, they also bring people together and build a sense of pride and identity for our city. This a smart approach, and one that fits with our vision to be The Smart Little City.” The finalised Nelson City Events Strategy is now available on the Council website:

Light Nelson

The Back Beach Beetle rides again...

Light Nelson is one of Nelson’s best-loved free events, and it's on from 6 – 10 July at Queens Gardens, Albion Square and NMIT.

Nelson is well known for many things, but among entomologists its fame lies in the presence of a tiny beetle thought to only be found at the Tahunanui Back Beach – hence known as the Back Beach Beetle.

Light Nelson is calling for volunteers to be part of the dynamic team, which creates such a fantastic and special experience for up to 60,000 people. For more information go to, or email Kate at

Check out our website

The beetle is considered to be critically endangered because of its limited distribution amongst the tidal flats at the Back Beach. However, recent surveys commissioned by Council’s Nelson Nature programme found a second, previously unrecorded population of this special creature at Delaware Inlet. Nelson Nature will be undertaking further surveys in the Nelson area next summer to see if the secretive beetle is elsewhere in the region. Councillor Brian McGurk, Co-Chair of the Planning and Regulatory Committee, said that the species has been identified as a high priority species for management within the Waimea Inlet. “It is really great news, and we hope we may find more populations of this unique beetle in the

Nelson/Tasman region.” Nelson Nature will be working with the Department of Conservation to determine how to protect this tiny Nelson treasure in the long term. Check out our Nelson Nature video about the Back Beach Beetle at

Council will investigate actions to reduce emissions, look at adaptation and response activities, and consider ways to limit or remove pressure on natural ecosystems affected by climate change. Council will be receiving updates over the next 12 – 24 months, particularly as the Government’s direction on climate change is solidified. Mayor Rachel Reese says, “Climate change presents an array of challenges that governments and councils, both nationally and internationally, will need to address with their communities. Local Government will be at the forefront of those discussions. “Of course there are opportunities

that we are taking advantage of now to reduce our environmental impact – what I call 'doing the right thing' – the sort of things you’d expect from The Smart Little City. "We’re supporting walking, cycling and public transport initiatives, waste reduction, energy efficient lighting, and increasing planting programmes across the city, to name a few. “The Nelson community has a reputation for being environmental leaders, and this commitment on climate change is an important next step for us. “In my Mayor’s report to Council, I signalled a strong desire to reach carbon neutrality. This work will help us develop a meaningful plan

towards that outcome. We will better understand our current situation and the impact of different activities, as we identify what we as a Council, and a community, can do to achieve a zero carbon future. “It is vital to assess where we are now, in terms of our carbon emissions, so we can map out a programme for reducing them, which is measurable, responsible and achievable. This work will occur over the next 12 months," Mayor Reese says. Council is a signatory to the Local Government Climate Change Declaration and the commitments to the comprehensive plan will lead the development of a holistic approach to climate change for Nelson.

Changes to Regional Land Transport Plan before adoption The Nelson Regional Transport Committee (RTC) met last Friday to conclude deliberations on the Regional Land Transport and Regional Public Transport Plans Mid-term review. After considering the public feedback, and in light of recent information from Central Government, the RTC is recommending to Council in principle the following changes to the draft plans to Council for adoption and consideration as part of their LTP deliberations this week. Thank you to those who took the time to share their feedback. The main changes include: • Renaming the Hill Street Extension project to the Saxton Growth Area Project and the budget re-phased and increased to $16.05m; • Adding a total budget of $900,000 for footpath maintenance and construction in to the Plan to enable NZTA subsidy to be applied; • Increasing the budget for the bus terminus to $2.4m over 5 years; • Increasing the Tahunanui Cycle Network budget from $2m to $2.8m spread over three years; • Changing the priority of the projects under Top of the South Significant Activities, as requested


by the Tasman Regional Transport Committee, specifically moving “SH60 Richmond to Upper Takaka Safety and Resilience Improvements” from priority 7 to priority 4 and moving “Nelson and Richmond Urban Optimisation Framework (NOF)” from priority 4 to priority 7; Including capital funding of $310,000 (Y1) for Electronic Bus Ticketing and additional operational funding of $42,000 (Y1) and $72,000 (Y2 onwards); Conduct a survey (at a cost of $10,000) in Y1 of ratepayers to understand why they do not use public transport; Include a separate item “Nelson TDM/Active travel” with a capital budget of $250,000 in each of Y2 and Y3; Change the phasing of the Marsden/Ridgeway intersection project commencing in 2018/19 with budget and phasing of $50,000 (Y1), $100,000 (Y2), $500,000 (Y3) and $50,000 (Y4);

• Investigating a fare reduction during peak hour to encourage patronage on public transport, with a report to come back to the RTC; • Tasking officers to seek further information and report back to a future RTC (prior to June 2018) on projects highlighted by NZTA. These include the Noise Wall and Improvement Programme, the SH6 Nelson to Richmond Safe Systems Enhancements, the State Highway Low Cost/Low risk improvements, and the Active Road User Corridor Programme – Nelson Safer Corridor. These were identified by the NZTA in the recently released Draft Transport Agency Investment Proposal. The RTC also approved a submission to be lodged with NZTA’s on the Draft Investment Assessment Framework (IAF) and a letter to be sent to NZTA about concerns relating to the application of the Transport Agency Investment Proposal (TAIP).

served reputation for working in partnership with others, so bringing Homecare to Nelson and Marlborough last year saw collaboration across the community and the full weight of Nurse Maude’s resources in Canterbury behind it. Now, some eight months later, Nurse Maude’s Homecare services have become an integral part of these regions, working with families, GP’s, healthcare and allied providers to provide the care people need to remain in their own homes and communities. A large part of that was being able to retain and attract those who live in the Nelson and Marlborough regions to manage, coordinate and provide that care, bringing invaluable local knowledge and a strong connection to the community in which they work. As our aged population continues to increase with some speed, the responsive and innovative way in which Nurse Maude works will be essential in meeting that demand.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is an organisation making a ‘big’ difference in children and young people’s lives, creating lasting bonds and opportunities through mentoring. “We are approaching our 20th anniversary, and are campaigning for 20 new male mentors by the end of July. We have a waiting list of 32 boys, and we are committed to reducing this”, Programme Director Chelsea Routhan says. “You don’t need to change your life to change theirs, and the only skill you need is being you. One to four hours a week is all it takes to make a real difference. These kids just need somebody to show up, show they care and be a consistent, positive influence in their lives”, Chelsea said. Research proves that mentoring changes young lives, with kids doing better at school and avoiding risky behaviours. Anyone interested in becoming a mentor can visit or call 03 545 9864.

Home Invasion breaking out

Nelson Bays Harmony recently had a workshop from visiting American vocal coach Kim Vaughn to prepare them for a concert to help Nelson Tasman Hospice. Photo: Supplied.

Singing for the hospice

Staff reporter Nelson Bays Harmony loves to sing, so they thought what better way to share their passion than performing in a concert as a fundraiser for hospice. The group has gathered some

fantastic local performers to put on a show “Harmony for Hospice”, on Saturday, May 19, at 2pm at All Saints Church on Vanguard St. The group has pulled together local singer songwriter Bryce Wastney, along with Nelson’s oldest singing group, Mosaic

and the ukulele band Uklectics – all to help ensure the event is a success. Recently Nelson Bays Harmony invited Kim Vaughn, a visiting vocal coach from the United States, to help sing the group’s four-part barbershop chords so they would sound

fantastic. The results will be on display this weekend. Entry is $10 entry for adults, gold coin donation for children and for afternoon tea. There is also a raffle to help raise some more funds. For more information visit

Everyone deserves a second chance, according to local playwright Justin Eade. This theme of redemption is played out in Justin’s latest play, Home Invasion, which debuted at the Nelson Fringe Festival earlier this month. “The Fringe Festival is a great opportunity to test new works to an audience before taking them on the road,” says Justin. Justin was inspired to write Home Invasion after interviewing young people who’d turned their lives around after being in youth gangs in South Auckland. But it sat on the shelf for a while. “Home Invasion is quite a different style for me,” says Justin. “I’ve been working on it, on-and-off for around 10 years, but I’ve always got a long list of plays, scripts and books to finish.” Home Invasion follows the story of Taylor, a self-entitled youth who breaks into an ex SAS soldier Peter Methune’s house. Recognising the need for a second chance, Peter offers Taylor a way out. Despite some rocky moments and a clash of attitudes, an unlikely friendship develops between the two. “It’s always exciting to see your words and characters come to life, and I’m delighted with the four local actors who’ve taken on the roles.” Nathan Green plays Peter Methune, the emotionally-stunted ex SAS soldier, with Nelson actress Miranda Warner playing his wife. Stuart Corkery, who plays delinquent Taylor, picked up the award for Most Promising Emerging Talent at this year’s Fringe Festival. Joining him is Waimea College student Lucy King who plays Taylor’s girlfriend Miri. Home Invasion is playing at Ghost Light Theatre in Nelson, May 16 to 19. Go to and search ‘Home Invasion’.

Brian McIntyre has been amazed at the power of history and technology to connect people. He has helped set up a Facebook page dedicated to sharing photographs of early history throughout the region. “There is some bloody old stuff

in there,” he says. From Collingwood to Wakefield, Foxhill to Nelson – it can all be found at the page called “Top of the South Island, New Zealand History”. Already it has had 2000 people sign up to it. “It’s getting really successful, people have so many of these photos but nowhere to share them.”

He recently posted a story about a 93-year-old woman with dementia whose son showed her a collection of photos from the page and he was amazed at how much she remembered. There has also been people comment on posts and finding out they were actually related. “It’s just the power of social media,” he says.

Nelson golfer hits two holes in one in five days Jonty Dine Reporter

The odds of an amateur golfer hitting a hole in one are 12,500 to one, but Nelson’s Pradeep Kumar made a mockery of that stat earlier this month, hitting two in five days. Playing off a 14 handicap, Pradeep hit his duel aces on the third and sixth holes at Nelson Golf Club. The first one was during a match play on Saturday, May 5. At the par three sixth, Nelson’s ‘signature hole,’ Pradeep teed off with his five-wood. “I knew it was a good shot, I thought it had gone pretty close." He says the ball then ‘just dropped’ as everyone watched on in amazement. “I had a bit of a fist pump,” Pradeep says. Pradeep went on to lose the match play, as he was too busy thinking about the celebrations that were going to come that

The self-employed electrician during the first two holes. says he finds it hard to get time At the third, using his favourite rescue wood, he did just that as off work. So he tries to sneak away on Pradeep hit the “perfect shot” Wednesday mornings for a on the 138m par three. “When it left the club, it did quick game. “The mates I usually play with really feel good, it dropped on on a Wednesday missed out the green, a couple of bounces on my hole in one and the and it went in.”

SporTS BASKETBALL: The Mike Pero Nelson Giants had a mixed bag of results over the weekend. The side’s first double header of the season saw them scrape home against Taranaki before going down to the Hawks in Napier. The Giants won 9390 over the Mountaineers on Friday night before suffering their first loss of the season 85-89 against the Hawks on Saturday. The Giants now sit in second behind the Hawks as they prepare for a return home this Saturday against the Canterbury Rams.

He says the reaction from his mates was priceless. “They couldn’t believe it, I have got bragging rights for life now, unless one of them can hit three in four days.” Pradeep has now hit four holes in one in his 25-year career. “I’ve hit three here and one at Greenacres.” He will receive two trophies in recognition of his historic strokes. “There will be four sitting on the mantle now, which will be nice.” Pradeep says most golfers play for years and never hit a hole in one. “It doesn’t matter what people say, it’s more luck than skill, there are guys here on two and three handicaps who have never come close, but I’ll take it.” Local golf pro Sean Riordan says Pradeep’s performance was pretty special. “I’ve hit a couple myself, but they were about 12 years apart, so to hit two in five days, it’s an amazing effort.”

RUGBY: Nelson College scored an emphatic 83-7 victory over Roncalli College on Saturday, but the win may have come at a cost. Moments after scoring his second consecutive hat-trick, inspirational skipper Anton Segner was carried from the field with what looked to be a serious back injury. His side ran in 13 tries in the round two UC Championship romp. Anton opened the scoring for the hosts as College out-muscled their bigger opponents from the outset, racing to a 12-point lead. Scorers: Nelson College 83 (Anton Segner 3, Taya Brown 2, Conor Rhind 2, Jack McDonald-Hill, Connor Johnson, Nikora Kanara, Jordan Newsome, Daniel Rogers, Luca Inch, Nico Barton, 9 cons Roncalli 7.

paring for the championship round in Dunedin on July 5-8. Frances hopes last season will be the last not to feature a Nelson side. She says there are two major barriers holding women’s sport back in the region. “Money is first, and time is second.” She says mums trying to fit sport around their many other commitments can be next to impossible. “We have eight kids, whose mothers are in the team, ranging from 9 months to 13 years old.” She says this is very indicative of women’s basketball. “There are often kids around, they all wear Spark T shirts, so they are like our own little cheer squad.” However, funding remains an issue. The Sparks are still without a primary naming sponsor. “It costs a lot to prepare a team and travel around the country to play at this level. Next year, we are looking to play home and away games, but our budget will have to double, we just don’t have the current infrastructure to accommodate that.” Frances says they have some fantastic businesses that have come on board this year but, unless they are playing in Nelson, it’s essentially a donation. The team will host a fundraiser quiz on May 21 at the Speight's Ale House. If your business wishes to donate, contact Frances at

After a year in the wilderness, the Nelson Sparks have returned to the court for the 2018 season. The women's basketball team enjoyed recent success, having won the national title in 2012 and finishing third in 2015, but were unable to field a team in 2017. “It’s taken a village to get the team back,” says Sparks player and administrator Frances Tilly. Frances says the future of the franchise relied on a resurgence in 2018. “If you let it go for two years, it’s nearly impossible to resurrect.” The Sparks new era was officially started as they competed at the national Women’s Basketball Championship in Tauranga earlier this month. “A lot of the teams there said it was great to see us back, which was really rewarding,” Frances says. The side started the tournament with a decisive win over Rotorua. “Everyone got a lot of court time and our junior players really stepped up which was fantastic to see.” Following their opening win, the Sparks then went down with North Canterbury in an incredibly physical battle. “The score didn’t reflect the game, it just blew out at the end, but it was a really good test against a quality side.” The team then finished the tournament with a comfort-

Frances says they were satisfied with the 2-1 result in their return to the top league. “We go to these tournaments wanting to win, but with a young team I think there are some real positives.” Frances says the squad features five veterans and five of the region’s best up and comers. “Our players range from 17-year-olds to late twenties.” The team is managed by Joanne Mumm and former Tall Black Phill Jones. “We are in good hands.” The side boast a wealth of talent including former Tall Fern and Sparks guard Jelena Vucinic, who played college basketball at Louisiana Tech. “She is a phenomenal scorer,” says Frances. Jody Hikuroa-Jefferey, who played for the New Zealand

select team in 2016, is described by Frances as one of the best point guards in the league. Veteran Kat Jones, wife of coach Phill, will captain the side. “Kat’s work rate is as high as it’s ever been.” Adding height to the ranks is former Welsh international netballer Rebecca James. Frances, in her third season with Sparks having previously played for Otago, is also a former New Zealand handball representative player Rounding out the squad are young guns Hannah Crabtree, Olivia Daniel, Kate Dohmen and Samantha Jenkins. “They have really stepped up to the level, Olivia Daniel’s first shot was a corner three pointer, that takes a lot of guts.” Frances says the young players have all the skills, they just need some time to adjust to the physicality and pace of the WBL. The Sparks are currently pre-

GENERATIONS OF NELSON Brought to you by Marsden House

From River Mouth to Beach

The Waimea River mouth and “Bolton’s Hole” once provided safe anchorage where Tahuna Beach is now. In 1854, the river’s Eastern Branch flowed through the back beach channel, discharging directly

towards the Nelson haven outflow, resulting in “Bolton’s Hole”. One of the early routes to the Waimea Plains, this branch was navigable by whaleboats as far as Cotterell’s Landing. By 1881, the Waimea carved a new channel and the beach began to form.

Nelson rower off to Harvard

Top bowlers recognised at prize giving

Jonty Dine

Kayla Baker might not consider herself a prestigious person, but one of the world’s most prestigious universities disagrees. The 18-year-old Nelson rower has been accepted into Harvard University in Massachusetts, an Ivy League school which boasts an alumni that includes Barack Obama, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg. She was one of only eight rowers from around the globe offered a place at the institution. “I still don’t believe it,” she says. “I have always joked about wanting to go to Harvard, but now it’s actually happening.” In mid-January, Kayla was at a rowing training when she saw she had three missed calls from an American number. Kayla kept playing phone tag with Harvard until she waited up until 2.30am and finally got hold of them, waking the household with the news. “I just started yelling and screaming, ‘I got in, I got in!’” Kayla’s S.A.T exam score saw

Nelson bowlers Allan Griffiths and Kirsten Edwards were the big winners at the Stoke Bowls prize-giving, which was held last Friday night. Allan was awarded the Murray Memorial Trophy (Senior Men's Singles) and was also winner of the Men's Veteran Pairs with Neville Turner (Strickett Trophy) and co-winner of the Men's Fours (Wadsworth Trophy) with Peter Rutherford, Peter Hodson and Dave Merritt. Allan won the Mace Allen Trophy for most consistent performer in the Men's club championships. Kirsten Edwards won the SWBC cup in the Senior Women's Singles and the Riley Cup in the Women's Triples with Amy McIlroy and Katy Scott. Peter Hodson took out the Hodgson Trophy in the Men's Triples with James Pugh and Dave Merritt. Kath Newth took out the Russell Jones Trophy in the Women's Veteran Singles and the Norma Tebbutt Trophy with Janet Radcliffe in the Women's Veteran Pairs. The Senior Women's Pairs (Mary Mockett Cup) was won by Mary Orbell and Helen Moseley.

Her visit to the campus was her first trip overseas. She admits she will need to make some cultural adjustments, such as Americans driving on the other side of the road. She says she is relishing the idea of competing in the Ivy League and the traditional rowing rivalry with Yale University - not to mention the

world-class training facilities. “The boathouse was just incredible.” She plans to study environmental engineering when her semester starts on August 27. Kayla’s rowing journey only began a few years ago. Originally a swimmer, a shoulder injury forced her out of the pool and into the boat. “I just went to the Nelson Rowing Club and asked if I could join.” Her rowing resume already in-

cludes gold at the 2017 Maadi Cup. She was also recently selected in the New Zealand junior rowing team to compete at the world championships in the Czech Republic from August 12-17. With Harvard ticked off her list, Kayla has reassessed her goals which now includes winning gold at the world champs. She hopes to replicate the success of the New Zealand women’s team who won gold in 2010.

Nelson avenges loss with Waimea win Jonty Dine Reporter

Nelson avenged their shock loss to Marist in the NPD Tasman Trophy last weekend, with a hard fought 24-21 win over Waimea Old Boys on Saturday. The win sees Nelson regain their spot at the top of the table from Waimea. Marist sit in third with Renwick rounding out the top four. Waimea try scoring machine Erenimo Tau now tops the try scoring charts with eight, three clear of Marist’s Isaac Laga, while Nelson pivot Willy Havili is comfortably ahead on the point scoring table with 74. Erenimo opened the scoring after he picked off a long ball from Havili to run 90 metres and score under the bar. Nelson centre Chris Kerslake then crashed over in the corner to take the lead and head into the break, up 10-7. Nelson struck again immediately after oranges, Willis Scott muscling his way over for his second after stringing together several phases. A relentless period of attack by Waimea lead to their second try as Mitchell Amberger dived over untouched. Xavier Albert nailed

The home side looked to have turned the tide when centre Alex Coventry bust the Nelson midfield defence wide open leading to the ever-present Erenimo scoring his second under the sticks.

However, Nelson regained momentum and the lead minutes later when halfback Matthew Soper snuck his way over the chalk. Willy added the extras to stretch it to 24-21 with five to play. Nelson grinded away in the final few minutes, hanging on to claim a three-point victory and the Noel Barton Trophy.

Nelson co-captain Chris Kerslake says his side showed a lot of heart to leave Jubilee with the victory. "It’s awesome to get away with the win, we always knew it was going to be tough against Waimea.” He says the boys dug deep to bounce back from their loss to the green machine. "It was a good learning curve for

us to lose one after a few big wins and it showed us how we have to play to come away with the tough games. In other results, Wanderers defeated Kahurangi 28-22, Renwick beat Moutere 29-12 and Waitohi beat East Coast 26-17.

Marist skipper notches 100 caps Jonty Dine Marist skipper Tyler McKinnonStevenson made his 100th appearance for his beloved club on Saturday. The feat was made more incredible after the Marist stalwart’s career looked to be over after fracturing his neck in 2011. Tyler’s teammates helped mark the occasion as Marist defeated Stoke 40-15 at Tahuna. “It was pretty emotional and to do it on the ground where I played my first game was pretty awesome.” Tyler says the club made a big deal of his century which was pretty special. “When I walked out onto the paddock they made me go by myself, so everyone clapped me on which was really nice, they also gave me a blazer which had my 100th and first games embroidered on it.” To cap off the emotional experience, Marist performed a haka

for their leader following the final whistle. Tyler began his illustrious career in 2007 against Wanderers as an 18-year-old. Having grown up in Stoke, it was the style of the green machine that appealed to Tyler. “I always enjoyed watching the likes of Gavin Briggs and Kahu Marfield, Callum Taylor, I just loved their attitude and the way they played the game." Straight out of Nelson College, Tyler was originally going to play for the Nelson B side. However, a chance meeting with Marist coach Steven Jackson after a Tasman Maori tournament saw his path redirected. “Steven asked me afterwards who I was playing for, when I said Nelson B he replied, ‘that’s a joke’, and asked me to start for Marist A’s and the rest is history.” Cracking the century is a testament to the lock’s longevity who nearly had to quit the game be-

Tyler played three seasons for Marist before moving to his home club Stoke. It was while playing for Stoke against Huia in 2011, where his career was curtailed. Tyler attempted a tackle on a much larger opponent when he fractured his c8 vertebrae. “I just went in to smash him and I came off second best.” At the time Tyler was in the Mako

High Performance squad and was hoping to become a professional player. “Once that happened, that was it.” Tyler was now faced with the very real possibility of never playing the game he loved again. “She was pretty emotional for a few months, I sulked for a bit, but my teammates didn’t give up on me and helped me push through it.” After two years of painful recovery, Tyler was cleared to get back

on the paddock. However, the psychological damage had been done. “It was more of a mental thing, I tried to come back but just couldn’t play the way I used to, so I decided to chuck it in.” However, the desire still burnt and when Tyler’s younger brother then started playing for Marist in 2012, he decided to put the boots back on. “I saw an opportunity to play with my younger brother and haven’t looked back since." The interior plasterer says he has a host of great memories from his time at the club, including a club championship in his first year, a 40 meter runaway try against Harlequins and defeating Nelson in the 2016 semi-finals. He says he owes a lot to Marist and while he laughed at the idea of notching up 200 games, “you never say never”. “The club means a lot to me, it’s helped shape me into the man I am today.”

Girls College claim historic netball victory Jonty Dine Jacks OPD and Stoke remain the only unbeaten teams in the Nelson premier netball competition. The defending champions sit ahead of Stoke on points differential, having only conceded 75 goals so far. However, the biggest talking point after three rounds of competition was Nelson College for Girls’ historic victory over Prices on Thursday night. NCG registered their first ever win over the heavily favoured Prices team, 47-46. NCG coach Lyn Fleming says she was proud of her girls for finally breaking the hoodoo. "We’ve been trying for a few years.” The young college side showed composure beyond their years to pull off a dramatic upset over Prices Pharmacy in round three of the House of Travel premier competition. In a high tempo match, the youthful college outfit were trailing the favoured Prices for the majority of the game, only edging in front late in the final quarter. Some sloppy turnovers saw Prices ease out to a more comfortable six goal lead at half time. However, NGC came storming back in the third, centre Chloe Webb’s tireless efforts helping her side to 30-29 at three-quarter time. The neck and neck netball continued with NCG squaring the scores 44 apiece with less than five to play. NCG took the lead for the first time through back to back goals from

Replacement goal attack Sophie Fleming then sunk one from the edge of the circle to stretch the lead to two with sixty seconds remaining. Lyn says her side showed great teamwork and calm under pressure. "We put a lot of pressure on at trainings, so they can handle it come game time." In other results, Richmond and Stoke shared the honours after a tense encounter, 44-44. While Jacks OPD hammered Waimea College 68-17. This Thursday will see the clash of the college sides and Waimea and Nelson College square off at 6.30pm. In another mouth-watering match up, Stoke will meet Jacks with the winner taking top spot on the table. Prices will face Richmond at 7.45pm.

Out Of Zone Enrolment Applications The Clifton Terrace School Board of Trustees invites applications from parents who wish to enrol their sons and daughters for 2018/19 who live outside the enrolment zone. Enrolment at the school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available on the school website Families who wish to apply should do so in writing addressed to Rob Wemyss stating the child’s full name, date of birth and current address. The deadline for receipt of applications for out-of-zone places is Wed 30 May. Parents of students who live within the home zone should also apply by this date to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year. The board has determined that 20 places are likely to be available for out-of- zone students next year. Preference will be given to those in the Year 1- 3 age group (those born 2010 - 2014). The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone. If the number of out-of-zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot is required it will be held on Fri 8 June. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held. Rob Wemyss Principal CliftonTerrace School
