Santas come to town

Nelson had a double Christmas treat in the form of a visit from both Santa Claus and Hana Koko as part of the Santa Parade on Sunday. The two men in red suits formed part of the parade’s 20th anniversary. Thousands lined the streets to welcome in the 19 floats before children got a chance to meet Santa himself. The organisers said Nelson’s population is made up of well over 30 different cultural groups from around the world, which was an opportunity to present a rich and vibrant Christmas story that reflects who we are as a community.

Bay has been a contentious topic for 20 years and surfaced again at last week’s Nelson City Council environment committee meeting. Both recreational users and local iwi spoke to a report prepared for council, which looks at different options on how to handle future access to the estuary. The Resource Management Act

states that vehicles cannot drive on any foreshore unless the area is subject to a resource consent; The estuary at Delaware Bay is not. However, council has not enforced these rules and over a 20-year period the estuary has become a popular spot for boaties to launch and retrieve their boats due to safety and convenience.

Spokesperson for the Delaware Bay Working Group, which represents more than 600 recreational boat users, Zane Mirfin, told councillors that if they restrict vehicle access to the estuary “someone’s going to die out there”. Zane says the Delaware Estuary is the only safe, all-weather, all-tide

However, Te Huria Matenga Wakapuaka Trust spokesman Anaru Stephens says he feels “appalled” when he sees vehicles driving on the sacred land. He says the estuary is “one of the best areas Nelson has” in regard to estuarine health, with fragile organisms including seagrass, cockles and mussels all calling the area home. “This area is not only a breeding ground for certain fish species, it is an area for juveniles of other fish species to grow, learn and feed, we need to be looking after these areas.” Instead, he says the area is being “depleted, desecrated, destroyed”. Geologist Markham Phillips says the preferred defined

access area does not contain those organisms. He says the proposal is to have a narrow strip of land available so that people are not allowed to drive anywhere else on the estuary. “This narrow strip, which is about a third of a per cent of the total land mass of the estuary, it’s on rock, not where the life is,” says Markham. Ngāti Tama kaumatua Ratapu Hippolite spoke in support of restricting vehicle access, urging the councillors to “do your job.” “Sixty-three illegal entries across the estuary have been recorded, and no prosecutions. Do your job. Committee chair  Kate Fulton moved to delay a decision until the next committee meeting to allow time to better communicate with iwi and the community.

The motion was accepted, and the issue will be looked at again on March 5, 2020. In the meantime, council says they will undertake “appropriate compliance activity”. When questioned what that would mean for existing recreational users, acting group manager environmental management Mandy Bishop says the driving of vehicles on the estuary breaches a rule in the Nelson Resource Management Plan. “Council has a range of compliance tools it can use, and it is our practice to undertake an educative approach and encourage all visitors to Delaware Bay to act responsibly. “If the behaviour of any offender warrants further action then council will determine the most appropriate action to take.”

Nelson schools to get $6.5m Charles Anderson Nelson schools will be getting a $6.5 million slice of the Government’s new funding for capital projects. All schools will receive between $50,000 and $400,000 depending on the size of their roll. Nelson’s state schools; Nelson College for Girls, Nelson College, Waimea College and Nayland College will all receive the full $400,000 investment. All state primary and intermediate schools will receive between $50,000 and $400,000 depending on their roll size. For example, Tahunanui School will receive $200,900, Stoke School will receive $185,031, Nayland Primary receives $282,744 and Nelson Central receives $327,096. Labour’s Nelson Candidate Rachel Boyack says she is delighted at the $400m announcement from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern at the Labour Party Conference in Whanganui. The Government has earmarked $400m for “much-needed” infrastructure investments. Rachel says she will be visiting some Nelson schools before Christmas to find out about the projects they plan to invest in. The school property projects the investment can be spent on include classroom upgrades, replacing roofing and guttering, upgrading storm water drainage

Rachel Boyack systems, installing energy efficient heating and lighting and resurfacing outdoor courts and paved areas. The overall funding package, which is the largest spend on school infrastructure in 25 years, works out to be roughly $700 per student and will benefit more than 2000 schools across the country. The funds need to be spent within 24 months and the government wants schools to engage local tradespeople to carry out the work. “It is fantastic news and a great windfall just before Christmas,” says Nayland College principal Daniel Wilson. “We have several projects already in planning stages, particularly around renovating classrooms but also some infrastructure projects such as roof replacements.” Chair of Victory School Helen Watson says it is great to have money coming back into the sector and that it was always

difficult to prioritise what money was spent on. “What we would like to do is focus on learning spaces for children, but that is not always possible. If we had more money in the system those upgrades of learning spaces could be fast tracked.” Rachel says that in addition to improving the quality of educational facilities in Nelson, the investment will create jobs in the building and construction sector in Nelson over the next two years and provide an economic development injection into the region. “Investing in our schools delivers for our kids and communities, through improved buildings for our kids to learn in, while also creating skilled jobs for the people of Nelson,” she says. Jacinda Ardern said the spending package was a “real shot in the arm” for schools across the country. “I’ve visited plenty of schools and I’d be hard-pressed to name one that didn’t have need. You hear horror stories about kids learning in damp, mouldy classrooms.” According to Government figures, roughly 70 per cent of New Zealand schools have an average building age of more than 40 years. For most of the schools, the extra funding represents a 40 per cent average increase over the next five years.

Council bows to pressure on freedom camping Jonty Dine Reporter

jonty@nelsonweekly.co.nz

Nelson City Council has bowed to a community outcry condemning a proposed freedom camping hub in Tahunanui. Tensions flared at a heated community meeting last week as residents voiced their outrage at the proposal. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment allocated the city $256,878 for a Freedom Camping Hub to include showers, toilets, laundry facilities and WiFi. Nelson facilities asset planner

Paul Harrington says they looked at about 30 potential sites including the car park adjacent to the Tahuna Skate Rink. “The area jumped out because it’s locked at night and has a parking area.” However, the proposed site for this hub made Tahuna residents furious. Council chair of recreation and sport, councillor Tim Skinner, had barely opened the meeting before objections were yelled from the crowd. Tahuna was the frontrunner for the site and Tim told residents he was there “to get some feedback”. The residents obliged and let their

feelings be known. “You’re nuts,” one exclaimed. Paul said they know there are issues with freedom camping. “We get a lot of complaints about people washing their bodies in public toilets, hanging their knickers out to dry, putting rubbish in full bins. So, the idea of these hubs is that it’s daytime only, staffed and on timers.” Tim said the hub was not to encourage overnight camping, but to improve behaviour. “We are trying to manage them better, it’s not about letting them camp here.” This was met with cries of “freeloaders” from the

increasingly agitated crowd. “This campground (Tahuna) has been here for 90 years. There are 50 acres, 500 sites at $21 a night - if they are not prepared to spend $21 a night, we don’t want to see them in this town,” one man shouted, which was met with applause. Accusations of “bloody arrogance” were thrown at the councillors for what the residents say was improper consultation. “Take it somewhere else. This isn’t consulting, if you’re going to put a hub here, what are you going to do for the people that use this area now, how are you going to cater for them?” Another said the hub would be

completely undermining a whole lot of businesses. “Why have you chosen the most treasured part of the city? We don’t want to make it appealing for them.” The push back from residents prompted council to back down on the idea and has since ruled out the hub in Tahuna, saying it would not work in the area. Paul says data from other councils has shown these hubs send more people to campgrounds. However, this was not accepted by the residents. “Are we as ratepayers not more important than freedom campers from Germany?” Ra Tamati and Sophia Brumby admire some of the gowns at the opening of the 2019 World of Wearable Arts exhibition at the Nelson WOW Museum. The new exhibition of finalist garments from the 2019 WOW Awards opened to the public on Friday and showcases more than 50 creations by 53 designers from 11 countries.

Changes to dog Natureland needs volunteers Sara Hollyman rules proposed Reporter

sara@nelsonweekly.co.nz

Sara Hollyman Dogs may soon need to be on a leash in some Nelson City Council grazed reserves, according to a new draft proposal. Nelson City Council is proposing a range of changes to the Dog Control Policy and Bylaw. A report outlining the proposed changes was presented to the council’s environmental committee meeting, where councillors agreed that public consultation was needed. Council manager environment Matt Heale said changes included introducing a prohibition of dogs within the planted area at Paremata Flats Reserve and that all grazed council reserves, excluding Paremata Flats, be designated onlead areas to avoid conflict between stock and dogs. The grazed areas include the Grampians, Sir Stanley Whitehead Park, part of the Tantragee Reserve and part of the Maitai River esplanade reserve. The report says council does not have the funding to manage these areas without grazing, something that is necessary due to the fire risk from overgrown grass and weeds. “Dog attacks are one of the main

problems with stock welfare, and consequently attracting and keeping graziers,” the report says. The report said there were 35 sheep killed in the middle of lambing, and another eight in one incident during the Easter break. This prompted the removal of stock from the Grampians. The person who managed these areas was supportive of the grazed areas at Paremata Flats Reserve remaining an off-leash exercise area as long as there was adequate signage indicating “stock grazing — keep dogs under control”. The proposal also suggests removing the Good Dog Ownership Policy, which sees 2500 dog owners receive a $19.50 subsidy on their annual registration when they meet certain criteria. Matt says it’s a costly policy to administer and implement with $48,750 in lost revenue and roughly $16,500 in administration costs. Monaco Reserve will change from an on-leash to an off-leash area after a petition was presented to council in 2014 with 66 supporting signatures asking for the change. Nelsonians will be asked to give feedback on the proposed changes between January 27 and February 28, whether they own a dog or not.

Natureland is putting the call out for volunteers to help its next chapter of development with one current employee saying you never know where it may lead. Dayna Thia became a volunteer keeper when she was just 16 and now, two years later, she is a full-time employee. “I’ve always loved animals,” she says. “I really wanted to be a keeper for quite a few years, and I thought that Natureland would be a really good place to learn more about different kinds of animals.” Dayna grew up on a farm with horses and says Natureland was the perfect place to grow her knowledge of other species. One thing she’s learnt: “It’s very different liking and loving animals to actually working with them.” “Loving animals you can look at them and think ‘oh they’re so pretty’, but being a zoo keeper is actually a lot of work. It’s very physically demanding.” Manager Stephen Standley says plans are in the works for exciting development at the zoo but to do that they need help

Dayna Thia began her journey at Natureland as a volunteer and is now a fulltime employee. Photo: Sara Hollyman from their volunteer base. Zookeeper positions are currently full but positions including; groundskeepers, customer service, fix-it helpers and food preparation for the animals are all available. Stephen says gardeners and landscapers are at the top of the list and can offer one of the more flexible volunteer roles. Dayna says, to be a successful volunteer requires stamina, hard work and devotion along with a

definite appreciation of animals. She says there is an excitement from the keepers about the changes happening and she hopes that the community will get behind it. “Especially with all the conservation work we do, being able to build that up even more and just teaching the public how important conservation work is - it’s really good.” For more information visit www. natureland.nz/get-involved

Quitting for baby

‘I know I can do anything I can set my mind to’ Jonty Dine Reporter

jonty@nelsonweekly.co.nz

Reihana-Paenga will be born in about five weeks into a smoke-free home after mother Naomi Te Kiri committed to quit cigarettes for her baby. Naomi is now completely tobacco-free as she prepares for the birth of her first child. The 24-year-old had been a heavy smoker since her late teens, spending at least $120 a week on cigarettes. She was stressed, depressed and constantly thinking about money for her next smoke. But when Naomi found out she was going to be a mother, she vowed to quit. “I want to create an environment for my baby where smoking is not ok. I don’t want her growing up thinking it’s ok, there are other tools to use when you’re stressed.” She says it was the biggest challenge of her life. “It was the hardest thing I have ever done, but I am a lot

happier now.” Naomi sought the guidance of quit coach Sonia HepiTreano at Te Piki Oranga. “You need that support behind you, you can’t do it on your own, having a quit coach really helped me.” Naomi says seeing the results on the breathalyser was a big motivator, as well as receiving grocery vouchers after reaching certain smoke-free milestones. Naomi has both seen and felt the benefits. “I’m able to breathe better during my exercise. Now I can walk twice up the Tamaki Steps and I have more money to buy the things I need for baby.” Naomi says vaping has been a crucial tool in her journey but says it is not a long-term solution. At 35 weeks pregnant, Naomi is still working at the Honest Lawyer Pub and recently registered to study at NMIT as she works toward becoming a social worker. Sonia says, after the baby is born, mothers often relapse

Motivated by her pregnancy, Naomi Te Kiri has successfully quit smoking. Photo: Jonty Dine. as they think ‘my body is my own again’, not to mention a host of new stresses. However, Naomi is confident she will remain smoke-free

post-partum. “I’m fluent in saying ‘no’ now.” Naomi was further motivated by her father who has been smoke-free for a year and a half. “I’ve looked up to him, I thought ‘if he can do it then I can’.” She has some sage advice for others looking to quit. “Be determined and stay positive, keep a routine.” To recognise her achievement, Naomi was gifted a flax basket designed for burial of the whenua (placenta) and pito (umbilical cord). Smokefree Team Leader at Nelson Marlborough Health, Kelly Atkinson, was on hand to make the presentation. “It’s a huge step and commitment to protect their pepe.” Naomi says, now that she has overcome her tobacco addiction, she has more selfbelief than ever. “I know I can do anything I can set my mind to and I know I’m going to be a good mum.”

Nelson Weekly Council urging early water conservation Locally Owned and Operated

Nelson City Council is asking residents to think about water conservation ahead of what is predicted to be, a long, hot summer. Chair of the infrastructure committee Brian McGurk says that with a hot summer ahead, it is prudent to look at what we all need to do to conserve water now. “If everybody does their bit to conserve water now, we’re less likely to face critical shortages over the hot, dry months ahead. By each of us making small changes, we can make a big difference collectively when it comes to saving our precious water.” Here are some tips and tricks that you might find helpful to prevent water wastage: In the garden • Hand watering is the most efficient use of water • Water the garden only on calm days, during the evening or early morning to minimise evaporation • A wisely used timer or irrigation system can save water • A dripper pipe system is an efficient watering method. Moveable sprinkler systems are the least efficient method • Cover soil around plants with mulch, straw or grass clippings. This helps the soil retain moisture while discouraging weeds • Save 'grey water' for garden use • Don't hose down or 'water-blast' the yard or paths In the house • Install water-saving shower heads • Keep bath levels to a minimum • Wait until you have a full load before using your dishwasher • Wait until you have a full load before using your washing machine or use the half load switch.

He volunteered 10 years at Birchwood Kindergarten, followed by 17 years at Stoke. “Without him, we wouldn’t be able to run many of the extension programmes which he makes himself available to support,” says Toshi Phillips, who nominated Bruce for Volunteer Nelson’s Community Champion Award, which is supported by The Car Company. Last week he was presented with his award. Bruce is very clear about what he enjoys most about his day. “The kids,” he says and encourages others to get involved in volunteering. “If you have the time, it’s worthwhile.” Bruce was one of 12 Volunteer Nelson annual exceptional service awards that were given out.

Warning over Nelson’s ‘housing canary’ The Opportunities Party leader Geoff Simmons says Nelson is the ‘canary in New Zealand’s coal mine’ when it comes to low wage growth, the high cost of living and low productivity. He was recently in Nelson to talk about his plans and spoke to Jonty Dine. What is the biggest issue facing Nelson? Housing is the key driver of poverty in this country. We have restricted inner city building under RMA and central government has constrained councils’ ability to invest in infrastructure which is why they tend to sprawl, which just adds cost. The problem with sprawl is you have cheaper housing but pay more on the transport side. You have already seen the pressure the expansion to Stoke and Richmond has on the roading network. Our policies are designed to keep

the cost of housing stable for 10-15 years, so we have time for incomes to catch up. How do we address this issue? By making sure local authorities really have the ability to build up. With the kind of future we are facing with climate change, going dense in the city centre is the way to go for sure. Nelson is constrained in this valley and there is only so much space. The current RMA system makes it difficult for people to build upwards. We need to allow that to happen, but to build upwards you need better investment in infrastructure

which is a challenge as the government only allow council to raise funds through rates. Affordability is two things. It’s not just high house prices, it’s low wage growth as well. House price growth is driven by Nelson being a nice place to have a holiday home. That pushes up the cost of housing here. If you’re a rich individual why would you not want to buy a house in this region? There’s no disincentive to buy a house and let it sit empty for most of the year. On the flip side there is no incentive to invest in anything else. The New Zealand

EXCELLENCE IN DERMATOLOGY

The Opportunities Party leader Geoff Simmons spoke at the Maitahi Collab last week. Photo: Jonty Dine. tax system is structured so it makes a lot of sense to buy another house. Compared to the rest of the world we have some of the highest taxes on business and some of the lowest on housing. It’s no surprise we put more of our money into housing than any other country. We don’t invest in business, to the detriment of our incomes. How did we get here? New Zealand is obsessed with owning houses. Renting is not an option in New Zealand. There is no security of tenure. For our own long-term prosperity, we shouldn’t all be buying houses. In Germany, 60 per cent of people rent because it’s a long-term affordable option, they have much stronger renting rights and their tax system doesn’t favour housing over business. Owning a

home is not economically or socially good for us. New Zealand isn’t seen as a place to do business, it’s seen as a place to have a nice lifestyle. Foreigners buy property here to have a nice lifestyle and tax benefits. What the rest of the world is doing to New Zealand is what Kiwis do to Nelson. What’s the endgame of all this investment in housing? There isn’t one. We will eventually turn into a country we don’t want to be where it’s so inequitable we are putting up fences and hiring security guards. If you are given $100,000 you have three options. Put it in the bank, invest in shares or buy a property. From a tax point of view, it makes sense to buy property, but we need to be supporting our business sector.

Christmas comes to Victory Centre Kate Russell Reporter

kate@nelsonweekly.co.nz

A Christmas Day lunch is being organised by the Victory Community Centre for those who would otherwise be spending the day alone. The lunch is on from 11.30am – 1.30pm on 25 December and will be run entirely from donations. “It’s really for those people who

are lonely at Christmas,” says organiser Hana Randall, the centre’s administrator. “It isn’t a happy time for everyone and maybe some people haven’t had a Christmas in a while, so we want to make this really lovely for them.” She says when centre manager Rebecca Greig put the idea to her and community navigator, Jenni Bancroft, they were quick to put their hands up to help.

“It isn’t a happy time for everyone and maybe some people haven’t had a Christmas in a while, so we want to make this really lovely for them.” “As far as we know, there is nothing on like this in this area on Christmas Day. That’s why

we’re doing it.” Jenni says they have space for up to 50 people and their main goal is reaching those who have nothing on, or no one to be with on the day. “They’re the ones who need it. We’re going to door knock in the Victory area to connect with those people.” They’ve already had donations of a 10kg ham, supermarket vouchers and money - but they

are still in need of more items. “We will take anything. Nonalcoholic drinks, Christmas crackers, treats, fruit - or even if anyone has a few extra vegetables in their garden.” The event is free, but anyone interested will need to come and get a ticket from the centre or contact them on 546 8389 or vccreception@victory.school. nz by 16 December to secure a place.

Your Voice Nelson lawyer takes legal action after flying ban: I don't think I have ever had bad service from Air NZ either at airports or in flight. There has to be more to the story. No airline would ban a frequent customer unless there was a darn good reason. Wendy and Mike Pahl I had the pleasure of meeting this woman during the Nelson election 2019 and have met her six children, all extremely well educated and articulate. This is disappointing on every level and hope it can be resolved so she and her family can travel, particularly since Jetstar has pulled out of Nelson and there is no other option.

Nelson Matters It was a huge privilege to be one of the first to walk the newly opened Paparoa Track last week. It is New Zealand’s 10th Great Walk with the last created in 1993. It is the first purpose built for shared use by hikers and mountain bikers. The new 55km track transcends the Paparoa National Park between Blackball and Punakaikai. It includes two stunning new 20 bed huts on the Moonlight Tops and in the Pororari Valley. It also includes a 10km side track down to the Pike Rive mine site. The track was suggested to me as Minister in 2015 by Bernie Monk and the Pike families after mining expert’s concluded that it

was not possible to safely recover the 29 men tragically killed in November 2010. They wanted an asset that would provide an enduring benefit to the West Coast community that had been so supportive through the disaster. It has been a long haul from the initial feasibility study in 2015, exploring alternative track routes and hut sites and securing the $12 million from Cabinet in 2016. We had to change the National Park management plan to enable the new track. We awarded contracts in 2017 to Nelmac and Westreef for the construction. I am in awe of the job done by

DOC staff and the contractors including many Nelson staff. It is incredibly challenging terrain for constructing tracks, huts and bridges. I have awful memories of working in torrential rain as a junior engineer in Inangahua and Westport for Smithbridge in the 1980s. The annual rainfall in the Paparoa Park is 6000 mm/yr. The recent storms have triggered a landslide delaying full completion until Christmas although the official opening occurred on Saturday. I am a huge advocate and fan of New Zealand’s network of National Parks. My first big project as Tasman MP in the 1990’s was

I initiated the process for creating the Rakiura National Park on Stewart Island as Conservation Minister in 1999 and have been involved in many extensions including to the Paparoa National Park. These areas warrant strong protection but we should also maximise the opportunity for people to enjoy these precious parks. It was a deliberate decision to include mountain bikers and the track has been designed accordingly.

volved in the design of the Paparoa Track say it will be the best in the world. The feasibility study for this new track projected that after five years it would attract 1000 users per year. The bookings for the next six months are over 3000. It is important that New Zealanders get preferred access, thus the higher hut charges for international tourists. The new Paparoa Track adds to the amazing outdoor opportunities we have within a few hours’ drive. These help make Nelson such a great place to live. Advert.

Joelle releases first single

Kate Russell

Reporter

kate@nelsonweekly.co.nz

Joelle Noar may only be 11-years-old but she’s already singing her way to fame - and loving life in the process. The Broadgreen Intermediate student released her first single, ‘I Love Life’ last week, with some help from local award-winning children’s songwriter and performer Kath Bee and producer Doug Stenhouse. Reminiscent of Letters to Cleo and Liz Phair, the pop/rock song is based on a letter Joelle wrote to herself five years ago when her older sister got angry - to which her mum Maxine explained: “She is a teenager and hates life.” So, Joelle drew a picture reminding her older teenage self not to get angry, because she loved life. Maxine posted the picture to Facebook and Kath saw it and asked if she could write a song about it. “I loved her songs when I was little and she even came to my fifth birthday party,” says Joelle. “We were never allowed to listen to anything else in the car,” adds Maxine. Good things take time and Kath contacted Maxine earlier this year with the finished song and said that since Joelle inspired the song, she should be the one to sing it. “As soon as I heard it, I got a bit emotional because it felt like Kath knew me. I was so excited to be able to sing it,” says Joelle. The song was released on December 1 and is available on all platforms including Spotify, iTunes and YouTube. A music video will be out in the new year.

over two weeks in August, giving the café a fresh new look; its soft grey tones provide a neutral backdrop, ideal for highlighting the building’s character and wooden features and the incorporation of vibrant greenery and semi-permanent artwork by artist Andrew Steele. “He came up with some great concepts which are relatively simple yet represent who we are and what we like, based on a chat we had with him. It was our first crack at renovating hospitality, and it’s turned out really well.”

Experience the exciting new Morrisons Gary Warner and his partner Jessica Bryant had been enjoying life in Sydney for a time but felt ready for a change. “Jessica is from Nelson and had always wanted to come back here,” says Gary. “We’ve got a couple of kids aged six and two, and at the time our five-year-old was getting ready to start school, so we thought where do we start them – Sydney or Nelson? We decided on here and enrolled him at St Josephs.” Gary and Jessica then began looking for a business to get involved in and ended up purchasing the old Morry Street café. “Hospitality is a whole new ballgame for me, having never done it before and Jessica isn’t involved in the day-to-day running of the business, but there was a method to our ‘madness,’” laughs Gary. “At the time we bought the café there were a couple of long-term employees we felt were essential for a smooth transition, so that was deciding factor.

Morrisons is your ‘go-to’ place for great food, a great experience and great coffee. Come down and meet the friendly team. L to R: Tanisha, Callum, Lina and Gary. my previous career involved endless hours in front of a computer so we thought it would be great to do something that was more people- focussed. One of the most interesting things about the hospitality business is the variety of people you meet. It’s fascinating to hear their stories and hear what’s making them tick - it’s been really interesting.” When Gary and Jessica bought the business in March this year, they decided to not do a lot, other than look, listen and hear what people were say-

ing. “We didn’t change the staff, the menus or the opening hours – it was the same business with new owners and the same management team.” However, three months in, they had started to get a feel for what they wanted to do.

Take a break from the office

Gary says the newly revamped café is the ideal place to take a break from the office. “Having a meeting in a café can often be a nice, natural space to brainstorm and get creative with ideas.” Getting away from the office for a few minutes allows you to get some fresh air, enjoy some good coffee, have a nice chat with one of the friendly Morrisons staff or get a new perspective on something.

Authentic menu using fresh ingredients

“We changed chefs as we were transitioning across the ownership,” says Gary. “Our new head chef, Ellie, is wonderful – she’s ex Smoking Barrel, is Italian and shares our philosophy – everything is fresh, local, seasonal, generous, using quality ingredients and made in-house.” After the ‘reno’ they launched a brand-new menu which Gary confesses was a little ‘contentious,’ with a couple of items ‘biting the dust’ such as the cafés famous Pad Thai dish. “We wanted to have an authentic menu that is true to who we are and create an environment that

Locally Owned and Operated

Suter Art Society celebrates 130 years Kate Russell. In 1889, a group of art-minded friends started meeting once a month in Nelson to paint, share drawings and contribute ideas. Now 130 years on, and many artworks and members later, the Suter Art Society is one of the oldest art groups in the country. Founded by Bishop Suter as the Bishopdale

Sketching Club some 10 years before the Suter Art Gallery opened, the society is still nurturing, developing and promoting art in the region. With a dedicated exhibition space within the gallery, they offer memberships and benefits, include exhibiting, workshops, trips and events. President Larisse Hall says with over 200 members, they are continuing to grow. “This year we had 40 membership applications with over 20 accepted. From what we can remember, that is the most we’ve ever had.” Their annual Cash n Carry exhibition opened last week, where

you can purchase work from members on the spot. Larisse says 197 artworks have been submitted for the exhibition, ranging from paintings, photography and ceramics to sculptures and glass. “As works sell, they will be replaced with a new piece, so people have the opportunity to come back for something different.” The exhibition runs until 2 February. Meanwhile, Larisse says they are always looking for more people to help carry on their legacy. “We want more volunteers stepping up and getting involved so we can keep it going for another 130 years.”

‘Wynasty’ returns for new season

Top arty duo take out NMIT awards Kate Russell Reporter

kate@nelsonweekly.co.nz

Two very different designers have claimed top honours at this year’s NMIT Arts and Media awards. Artist Sue Francis and graphic designer Escher Kelaher share the prestigious Jens Hansen Award of Excellence, which goes to the highest achieving students for visual art and design studio practice. Sue’s winning sculpture ‘Labyrinth’ is made with space frames and vivid red wool. It can be described as a reflection on memory networks, traces

and threads - exploring spaces as repositories of memory. The work was praised for its capacity to “make links between the vagaries of memory and our technological world where memories are stored in the cloud”. After taking a two-year break, Sue came back at the beginning of 2019 to complete her final year. “I really wanted to finish it, and the award makes it all worthwhile - it’s the icing on the cake.” She says the three-year course is a “great springboard” for artists and she wants to continue to create work. Meanwhile, Escher impressed

with his graphic design portfolio containing a diverse range of projects from logo and visual identity design, to poster and web design. “It’s a big honour. There are so many good works in the collection,” he says. His interest in graphic design was sparked at Nayland College, through a design class that gave him a taste of the industry. He is now hoping to build a career here in Nelson and says the course has been the perfect way to prepare him for the workforce. “If you are interested in anything creative, it’s a good place to come.”

It’s 1986 in the back blocks of Nelson and a family feud is fermenting... again. Before the region was known for its sharp sauvignons and poignant pinots, it was the site of a dramatic war over the future of a burgeoning industry. There was intrigue, romance, betrayal and booze. ‘Wynasty: Season One’ was the first entirely improvised soap opera from The People’s Republic of Improv at the end of 2018, and now the troupe have brought it back, like a vintage wine.

Featuring a star-studded cast of characters, all bent on each other’s downfall, Wynasty depicts the fortunes and calamities of the mysterious Neudorf family. For the next two Fridays at Studio One off Hardy St, tune in for emotionally-charged, grapey-angst at its overly-dramatic best. ‘Wynasty: The Vintage Years’ Friday December 6 and 13 at HYPERLINK “https://www.eventfinda.co.nz/ venue/studio-one-nelson” Studio One, 1 Rutherford Mews at 8pm.

A weekend in paradise - a customer testimonial For a person whose ideal weekend involves fishing, mountain biking or motor racing, my husband was surprised that I’d booked us into a yoga retreat at Maruia River Retreat. But with the promise of luxury accommodation and gourmet food to sweeten the deal, he was set to give it a go. After an easy two-hour drive from Nelson, we arrived to find the retreat in beautiful grounds bordering the river and native bush, and the luxury accommodation more than lived up to it’s promises. Lasse, our yoga instructor, has a relaxed and easy-going manner and related well with everyone, particularly the blokes who appreciated his practical approach and the way he explained the reasoning, benefits and mechanics of the techniques he was teaching. Gone were the preconceptions of perhaps something a little bit ‘out-there’, and anyone new to yoga quickly became converts. Interestingly, it was the husbands who had attended the course with a little trepidation who requested extra sessions. Our weekend was one of both relaxation and indulgence. Each night pre-dinner cocktails were followed by dinner where we could choose

to eat as a group or a couple. Tim, the resident chef, presented a meal that was beyond expectations. Hearing he’d spent years working at Nelson’s Hopgood’s restaurant went a long way to explaining why his creations were so divine. In between yoga classes, there was plenty of time to enjoy the retreat with a massage, sauna or a swim in the hot tub. We chose to take a guided nature walk with Jason, who turned our stroll through the bush into a magical experience. We’re so pleased we visited Maruia River Retreat and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to escape their stressful lives for a blissful moment, to connect with nature, to explore the benefits of yoga and to experience a sense of wellbeing in a peaceful and serene environment. Like all good experiences though, it left us wanting - wanting to go back and experience it all again – maybe in the summer when we can swim in the river. With thanks, Sue and Craig. Keep up to date with the packages, events and special offers from Maruia River Resort through their facebook page. Business Update. Adv.

descend on the city for the third annual Super Club tournament. New Zealand’s six ANZ Premiership teams, along with two international club sides, will contest this year’s competition from December 8-13 at the

Trafalgar Centre. The New Zealand contingent face tough competition from Collingwood Magpies (Australia) and Wasps Netball (England). With this year’s tournament

CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR RUBBISH, RECYCLING AND GREENWASTE COLLECTIONS

feeding into selections and preparations for the Silver Ferns, the two-point shooting zone will not be in play and matches are also reduced to 12 minute quarters to allow for the early season timing of Super Club. The competition will see 20 games played over six days, culminating in the Grand Final on Friday 13 December with all games broadcast live on Sky Sport. Teams will take a break from

competition on Wednesday to engage in a community day around the region. The 2018 edition saw the Central Pulse winning its inaugural title after beating hosts, the Mainland Tactix. After five days and twenty games of high-octane international netball, the Wellington side pipped the Tactix 6156 in a thrilling final. The hosts will be out for revenge and open its campaign on Sunday against the Northern Starts at 8.30pm.

Rachel’s shot tops Oceania’s best Jonty Dine Reporter

Rachel McLaren’s mum always dreamed of her daughter competing in an overseas shooting competition. And though she passed away before she could see it happen, Rachel felt her mother watching over as she shot her way to a gold medal at the Oceania championships in Sydney last month. Remarkably, Rachel and her team were considered the New Zealand ‘B’ team but defied its underdog status to outshoot both the New Zealand and Australian ‘A’ sides. The 36-year-old ticked off a number of items on her bucket list, including travelling out of the country for the first time. Rachel, with her trusty weapon ‘Wally Walther,’ finished 6th overall with 610.2, just six points shy of New Zealand’s Sally Johnston. Her efforts, combined with teammates Kirsten Birrell and Shania Harrison-Lee, saw the

Locally Owned and Operated

trio finish first overall. “When Kirsten told me we had won gold, I didn’t believe her,” Rachel says. “It wasn’t until I saw the final scores on the screen that I got quite emotional.” Not only did the side claim the unlikely victory, they created history by setting a new Oceania Team Record. “I had to try and not ball my eyes out during the medal ceremony, which wasn’t easy.” The admin manager at Rzoska Electrical wrote “for Mum” on her hand so she would see it every time she fired a shot. “Seeing that on my hand helped calm me and to not overthink it. It also reminded me who I was doing it all for.” Rachel’s love affair with the sport began due to some unfortunate circumstances. An active child, Rachel was struck down with toxoplasmosis at just 12-years-old. This left her lethargic and unable to maintain her previous energy levels. However, a nurse and family friend suggested she try shooting. Rachel went to the Wakefield Range where she

fired a rifle for the first time. She says there are still people at the Wakefield Range who were there when she had her first shoot and coached her through the years. This range visit would be the start of a successful 20-year career. “I’ve had a number of successes over the years, too many to list and mainly with indoor as I’ve been shooting that for longer.” She says her trip to Sydney was made possible thanks to several donations. “I had so much support, so expenses were one thing I didn’t have to fret over.” Rachel is also the president of Target Shooting Nelson and is encouraging young and old to test their shooting skills at the club. “Our season starts this April and I highly recommend coming and having a go, everything is supplied, and you’re coached through the whole process.” To register your interest contact targetshootingnelson@ hotmail.com

With the Suburbs home being in Stoke, Ryan says they are looking to connect more with the community. “A good club always comes from a good community base, so we are trying our best to reach out to our area and be there to do things if they need us to do so.” Kirsten says the donation was really overwhelming and will now allow full classes to engage in training sessions. “Our kids love being outside, but our equipment is really limited so to be gifted something like this makes a huge difference.” Ryan says he is always happy to meet with anyone in the Stoke area to see how the club can better engage with the community.

Stoke School struggles for sports resources. Until recently, sports coordinator Kirsten Goomes was pumping up the few balls the school had at least once a week to make them usable. “We have really tight budget, and I haven’t been able to purchase new balls at all for any code this year.” However, Kirsten will be able to ditch the handpump for the foreseeable future after the school was gifted almost 100 footballs. Nelson Suburbs football director Ryan Stewart donated the balls on behalf of his club. “We do get a lot of gear through funding and a lot of the local schools don’t.

There were a couple of tight matches over the hill in Blenheim as two underdogs got up in the latest round of the Tasman Premier League at the weekend. Nelson College and Wanderers/Motueka defended small scores over more highly-vaunted opponents. In contrast, things went more with the form book in Nelson as ACOB and Stoke Nayland each completed relatively comfortable run chases. ACOB continue to lead the way for Nelson teams with a win over Wakatu while Waimea Toi Toi United were soundly defeated by Stoke Nayland. Photo: Chris Symes/Shuttersport.
