Nelsonians prepare for life at Level 2 Charles Anderson

Nelsonians will wake up tomorrow in Alert Level 2 with cafes, restaurants, tourism operators, sports clubs, libraries, cinemas and gyms all able to

throw open their doors. But bars which don’t serve food will have to stay shut for 10 days and with gatherings limited to 10 people or fewer, tangi and funerals will still be restricted. Nelson Mayor Rachel Reese

expressed her gratitude to Nelson for observing the restrictions during Covid-19 Alert Levels 3 and 4, which she says have been tough for so many. “I know many of you have already sacrificed and endured so much

to get to this point as we have all worked together to eliminate this virus. Return to business as usual will take time and will still create some challenges at Level 2 but it does offer everyone a real opportunity to support the

local businesses and community organisations we love.” Domestic travel will also be back on again soon, providing a lifeline to the tourism industry that has

Seeing double in lockdown Jonty Dine Arlo and Iylah Stewart may have chosen the worst timing possible to come into the world. It was day one of the national lockdown when mum Sara Borwick’s water broke. Due to the restrictions there was a lot of uncertainty surrounding dad Jeremy Stewart’s access to the birthing room. “I was worried I wouldn’t be able to stay, and Sara didn’t want to lose her partner. I know she was very stressed.” Sara was admitted to Nelson Hospital at 10.30 am and was induced at 1.15pm with the twins born six minutes apart and labour lasting a little over an hour. Sara suffered epileptic seizures following the birth of her first child Ashton which added to the family’s fears. Her blood pressure was alarmingly high after the delivery while the glucose levels of the

“Listen to you motherly intuition and don’t be afraid to ignore advice that you feel doesn’t fit with your parenting or your baby. They are all different and aren’t little for long. Enjoy every moment.”

“When I was a little gal, I remember my mum telling me ‘Kel, never, ever, settle for second best’ and it’s always stuck with me.”

“Accept and totally love each child for who they are, work with their strengths. Don’t criticise. Do encourage them to be the best they can be. Most of all believe in them.”

“After many years of anxious and fearful parenting, I eventually learned to trust the choices my children made for themselves and know that they could find their own way - just like I managed to!”

Seeing double in lockdown FROM PAGE 1 babies was low. “Iylah did what she was supposed to do but Arlo was finding it hard.” Arlo was put on a feeding tube which kept the parents hospital-bound for a further week. Jeremy was eventually granted permission to access the maternity ward but had to abide by strict safety measures. Finally, on Thursday April 2, they were discharged. Jeremy says it was an emotional time when they finally stepped outside the hospital doors for the first time as a family. “That first trip home to see Ashton, the dog and the sun, was a big relief after all that stress.”

However, their worries didn’t end there as they were stepping into more unknowns, thanks to Covid-19. “Sara was a bit beside herself worrying we weren’t ready, didn’t have enough clothes or where to get nappies. When one of us goes out the other has to stay home, it’s been very challenging.” The couple was also functioning off about four hours sleep each night. However, it did not take long for things to settle into routine and for mother and the babies to thrive. “They are charging back food and have had their immunisations.” Ashton is also relishing his big brother duties.

“He loves them to bits; he’s been helping out heaps.” With the exception of Sara’s mum, Alice, who was on babysitting duty for Ashton, the twins have yet to meet their extended family. Jeremy says now lockdown is lifted, they will look to extend their bubble. “There are a lot of people that want to meet them but haven’t been able to, which has been hard.” One silver lining to the lockdown though has been Jeremy’s ability to bond with his babies. “I have a very good boss who sent me home, told me to sort everything out, and kept me with payments. So it’s awesome to have that solid four weeks of skin to skin contact.”

Nelsonians prepare for life at Level 2 FROM PAGE 1 already seen the loss of thousands of jobs. Meanwhile, students and children can go back to school on Monday. Principal of Wakefield School and Nelson Principals’ Association president Peter Verstappen says restarting classes under Alert Level 2 rules will not be straightforward. “It’s tempting to think that it’ll be a return to normal, but it won’t be,” he said. “Schools are going to have to be a lot more vigilant around health and hygiene. We need

to be able to ensure families that they can send their children back to school safely. So we are going to have to make sure our systems are well in place for contact tracing should it become necessary, for managing hygiene and health.” The Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern says that she did not think Level 2 would “necessarily” be in place for longer than Level 3, but it depended on factors such as the number of new Covid-19 cases. – With NZ Herald and RNZ

Six-week delay on underpass Locally Owned and Operated

Kate Russell Reporter

kate@nelsonweekly.co.nz

Work on the Princes Drive underpass has been delayed by at least six weeks due to the Covid-19lockdown, Nelson City Council says. Construction of the shared pathway underpass, which will allow cyclists and walkers to continue uninterrupted along the Railway Reserve with the extension of Princes Drive, started in February. The work is happening near Station Reserve, 350m north of Beatson Rd, for a new road that will provide access to the Tasman Heights subdivision and Coastal Views Lifestyle Village. The $519,000 underpass will be 4m wide, 2.5m high and 16m long and constructed out of pre-cast concrete panels. But restrictions at work sites in Alert Level 2 and 3 could cause further delays to the project, as contractors are not able to work as fast as they are accustomed to. And, with the onset of winter, work may be interrupted more often due to bad weather. “For that reason, it is difficult to provide an exact finish

Council’s group manager of infrastructure, Alec Louverdis, says they are looking to “strike a balance” between getting on with infrastructure work, and ensuring the health of workers and the public. “Contractors are returning to work on projects across our region and operating under Covid-19 health and safety plans.” Council have also announced they will be streamlining their tendering process for capital physical works projectsto allow a faster return to work on major projects. To do this, they have made an exception to its procurement policy, allowing works worth up to $2 million to be assigned

to a selected group of local contractors who have a proven record with the council, on an equitable basis. This process will dispense with the more formal tendering procedures, but will still allow for checks and balances. “We don’t know exactly when we will be able to begin work on all our projects again, but when we are given the go-ahead, we need to hit the ground running,” says Alec. “Without a dynamic process, we will be on the back foot at the very time we need to be the most responsive and nimble. This decision will save us many months.” The decision was made in consultation with Tasman District Council, who are adopting a similar approach.

A five-week hiatus in Nelson’s building trades has seen supplies hard to come by as deliverers deal with a backlog in orders. However, local builders say that everyone is in the same boat and have been accommodating in dealing with five weeks off the tools. Steve Marshall, owner of Marshall Builders, says his whole team were happy to be back at work when the country moved to level 3 but it has required a lot more “patience” than normal. “It was a bit surreal getting back into it with empty streets everywhere you went, but we were lucky we were able to get straight back into it.” Steve says the entire supply chain has been affected by the lockdown, as have many other industries. “Every tentative end or completion date has been affected and everyone, including ourselves, have to be flexible. It’s thrown the entire schedule out of the cot so to speak.

“It takes a whole lot more patience when you’re going to pick up materials, it’s been frustrating particularly if you need just one thing and sometimes you don’t know exactly what that is and you can’t go in to the shop to pick it yourself, so it’s hard.” He says the team seems to be managing relatively well with social distancing and the “new normal”. “All our jobs are outdoors at the moment, so we haven’t had to worry so much about being in close spaces together, but we’ve been keeping our distance at smoko and things like that. Everyone has access to wash stations, hand sanitiser and face masks.” Steve says there was a gap left in the post-lockdown building industry from people who have either lost the income to do planned renovations or a new build and those who are just too nervous to do it right now so have put plans on hold. But he says that gap has quickly been filled by others. “People who have money in the bank are realising its going to

be better having it in an asset, such as property, so that will help the building industry.” Jason Callister of Mike Callister Builders says that they have had to be really organised with the logistics of getting deliveries and making sure builders were adhering to health and safety guidelines. “Everybody has had to scramble to get it all sorted. Sourcing stuff has got a big harder. Delivery and courier services are maxed out trying to get materials.” He says people have been understanding of the delays in getting back to work. “We are just pushing everything by five weeks. Everyone has lost five so it’s not like we are five weeks behind.” James Laird of Renovate Me says that process has been “a bit of a nightmare” but clients have been understanding. “In uncertain times it’s hard to know what it will look like in three or six months.” One renovation job is not going ahead, and others have said if they hadn’t already paid, they would not have started the work.

Nelson Police have dealt with 57 breaches of the Health Act during Alert Level 3. Photo: File. The amended act made it a legal requirement to comply with isolation or quarantine instructions issued by a Medical Officer of Health. Nelson-Marlborough Health clinical director Stephen Bridgman says that under the Act, officers are able to stop people congregating in restricted places. They also have the authority to close or restrict the use of premises, unless there was appropriate public health or infection prevention measures in place. Court documents show the charges, laid between April 4 and last week, related to obstructing a medical officer. “While there is a process around educating and warning those in breach of the alert level, the same tolerance has not extended to those found breaking the law in other ways,” Paul says. –With RNZ

NG PROOF

While the majority of Nelsonian have abided by the lockdown restrictions, police have had to arrest some frequent flouters. Nelson Bays Police Area Commander Paul Borrell says there’s a very small percentage of the community who are still doing what they’ve always done, and police found they’re easier to detect and apprehend under lockdown. In the wider Tasman District, there have been 57 breaches of the Health Act during Alert Level 3, with 19 prosecutions, 27 warnings and 11 youth referrals. Many of the breach prosecutions are for other criminal behaviour, such as burglary, theft, or drug dealing. Paul says, on isolated occasions, it has also been the catalyst for the executing of search warrants. Additionally, 10 charges have been laid in Nelson-Marlborough in relation to breaches of Covid-19 rules. Nelson-Marlborough Health confirmed that charges have been laid under the Health Act Amendment Order 2020, aimed at preventing the outbreak or spread of Covid-19.

City footpath widening on hold

The installation of temporary measures to widen the footpaths in central Nelson have been put on hold, due to concerns from local retailers. Foothpath widening on Trafalgar St, and the south side of Hardy and Bridge St to six metres, was agreed upon by Nelson City Council to help keep the community safe coming out of the Covid-19 lockdown period and assist pedestrians with the Government’s physical distancing guidelines. Council says while initial feedback from retailers was positive, subsequent discussions held during the installation of the measures on 6 May revealed strong feelings that it would have negative impacts on trade at a time when retailers are trying to get back on their feet. Councillor Pete Rainey, chair of the city centre working group, says council intended to seek feedback as soon as possible on a range of options for making the city centre safer.

Reintroduction of air travel ‘huge step’ for region Matt McCrorie The reintroduction of domestic air travel under alert level 2 will be a huge step forward for the Nelson region, says Nelson Airport CEO Rob Evans. Rob says that the rules around air travel for Alert level 2 are “much better than expected”. “Previously, it was essential workers only, so this will be a real positive change moving into alert level 2. It’s a real turning point. “We can see a real return to domestic travel … As a geographically isolated region, air travel is critical for us. Not just for our tourism, but for business too.” Rob says that under alert level 2, Nelson Airport will be operating five flights per day, with two services to Auckland, two to Wellington, and one to Christchurch. “These are the key Air New Zealand routes, so it will be good to have those up and running again.” Rob says that air travel will feel quite different than what

People’s attitudes might be slightly different, and there are some good things that will come out of this in terms of hygiene practise and health and safety. However, Rob says that while travel may feel different for a time being, things will

eventually return to some sort of normal. “I think mankind is always destined to travel and explore. Aviation is still an exciting way to travel, and I think people will re-engage with that. “We are hearing that there could be some great deals too. Airlines will have to stimulate demand, so hopefully we will be seeing some really competitive fares.” Originair CEO Rob Inglis says that the the lockdown

has been disappointing after a strong Summer for Originair. “We had a very stronger Summer and were planning to expand our services, but from a schedule point of view we haven’t been able to operate.” He says that being able to operate charter flights for essential service workers has “been very helpful”. Rob says that it may be difficult for Originair to operate under level 2 restrictions.

Running 132 rings around Covid-19 Locally Owned and Operated

At the beginning of the year, Jacquie Walters set herself a goal to run a 10km race before she turned 50. So, she signed up for the annual City2Saxton fun run, which was due to be held on 5 April. But with the event being postponed due to the Covid-19 lockdown, and her birthday looming on 8 May, she decided to get creative in reaching her goal. “I had some sponsors who had donated to the cause, so to meet my side of the bargain I completed it by running 132 laps of my backyard on the day when the event would have been held,” she says. She had her two daughters helping - one on music duty and the other counting down the laps on pieces of paper. “It took me an hour and fifteen minutes … it definitely took on

With her ex-husband and the father of her girls passing away during Level 4, running became important for her. “I thought, ‘if I can’t get to the gym, I’ll get back into running’. I downloaded a running app and started slowly. I have now done two 10km runs and most days I do 6 or 7km.

“Running has definitely helped me, it keeps my mind clear and the endorphins are great.” One thing Jacquie needed before taking up running was a decent pair of shoes, and she managed to get somejust before Level 4 lockdown restrictions took effect, thanks to the kindness of a stranger. “I bought them off a guy on Trade Me and he only had one day to get them to the post office, so he sent them to me before I had even paid him.” She says Sport Tasman has also been a huge influence on reaching her goal. “They have been doing training posts on Facebook and there is a really nice community feeling behind it.” For completing her 10km, Jacquie still managed to raise around $500 for the Victory Community Centre, thanks to her sponsors. “I really wanted to do it by the time I turned 50 and I wasn’t going to let Coronavirus stop me.”

We recognise that these outages can be difficult for some consumers to manage and we are working to ensure the duration of these outages is minimised. It is in the best interests of all our consumers that we undertake planned outages now, to help avoid longer unplanned outages later.

Stepping up to help region’s foodbanks Jonty Dine Reporter

jonty@nelsonweekly.co.nz

The Trafalgar Park Pavilion has been transformed into a foodbank with mountains of products to help feed our most vulnerable. Local banking institution NBS, has made substantial donations to foodbanks through the Tasman and West Coast regions - to the tune of $30,000.

NBS CEO Tony Cadigan says the NBS team prides itself on giving back to the community and takes a local approach when distributing sponsorship and making donations. “The impact on our communities due to Covid-19 has been significant. We heard about the big increase in demand facing organisations currently distributing food and know it is likely the number of people seeking food parcels will only

increase.” Tony says they have been in a privileged position as an essential business during Alert Levels 3 and 4. “Our branches wanted to give back to our community now.” The largest contribution to foodbanks made by NBS was to the Nelson Community Foodbank Trust, which supports families in Nelson and Richmond. Trustee Megan Familton says the NBS contribution would

assist to meet increased demand. “Cash is really what we need at the moment, as it helps us tailor food parcels for the families receiving them.” She says this is a very timely donation. Tony says NBS plans to continue its long-standing support of the not-for-profit sector, which will be even more important this year as we recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Your Voice About 112km from where I lived (as a young boy), a young girl with her family were hiding for nearly two years in the middle of Amsterdam upstairs in a large building to escape the Germans, who had planned to root out all Jewish persons living in The Netherlands and other occupied countries. Downstairs in the building was a factory producing gelatine and in the office was a wall with business books etc. This could be moved to get access to the hiding place upstairs. Not once, all that time was any contact made with the outside world except for the four persons who worked in the factory and managed to supply food during the weekend. Secretly they lived there until the Gestapo found them. All were taken to camps in Germany where they died, but her father survived. It is now 75 years since this story happened and it should remind us at present, having to lose some freedom for a short time worldwide to fight a virus, is not comparable. As Anne Frank was my age, I feel compelled to write this as I was able to journey with my wife Ina to Nelson in 1951 and found here the freedom to develop.

Great to have our local places back, even if it is under Level 3 conditions. Dennis Goodman We had a brilliant meal from The Speight's Ale House the other night. Super-efficient and easy to collect. It was great not having to cook and having restaurant quality meal for the family. Toni Brown New skills and hobbies discovered in lockdown: I have been so busy baking and being a homeschool teacher that I managed to get alcohol kicked. Quitting is underway, so far so great. Ana Fipe Lama I did Project Jonah marine mammal medic refresher online during lockdown. I was really pleased to be able to do it online as I have been wanting to update my knowledge, and during lockdown I had the chance to do it. My other skills of painting, cleaning, sealing, cleaning ceilings, cleaning walls were also developed during lockdown!

Look for the biggest lock down party and surly the petrol station and the motels in the area would have footage of car/cars etc at that hour, then work your way back.

A local cheesemaker has recently won an impressive set of national awards. Thorvald Cheese, based in the Moutere, with an outlet at the Junction Shop in Appleby, won two awards at the New Zealand Champions of Cheese Awards, announced last week, and cheesemaker Francis Bigot says he is “absolutely thrilled.” Thorvold Cheese is owned by Sue and David Barrett, who previously owned Stoke Fruit and Vege, as well as Sprig and Fern in Richmond. “It was really fantastic to win two awards this year,” says Sue.

What a horrible thing to do at this time when our businesses are struggling already. Yes, they will have insurance - but workers/managers/owners are already under extra stress and don’t need this. But of course, people who do this crap won’t care unless it’s their belongings being ripped off. Gem Bennetts

Nelson Matters My work over the last two months has been frantic supporting Nelson through this unprecedented national health emergency. It has involved getting children essential specialist foods, access for families to dying loved ones, permits for people in exceptional circumstances to travel, delivery of food and getting homeless into safe accommodation. My focus has now shifted to Nelson’s economic recovery. Hundreds of Nelson jobs have already been lost. The sectors hardest hit have been tourism, hospitality, retail, aviation and international students. We have hundreds of small businesses in Nelson that have been bleeding

cash for two months who are at risk of going under if we do not act quickly and smartly. The Government should be commended on the wage subsidy scheme modelled on what National did to support jobs in the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes. The problem is it runs out at the end of this month. I am advocating for four things to help Nelson’s recovery. Firstly, we need to get Nelson back working with practical rules. I worry that few Ministers have any real world business experience and that excessive rules will just cause more job losses. The Nelson Council went down this path last week starting $200,000 of work on alterations

to Trafalgar Street that would have removed dozens of carparks and making a hotchpotch of our city centre. This was supposedly to make it safe for pedestrians despite the latest evidence showing the risks of getting Covid-19 outside from passers-by is negligible. Thankfully a last minute protest by retailers saw Council boss Pat Dougherty put a stop to the work. It’s a reminder that Councils and Government needs to be closely engaged with business. Secondly, business needs help with cashflow. The wage subsidy was just money to pass onto workers. These businesses have still had rent, insurance and many other bills to pay with little

That's great news. Fingers crossed all goes well now for our region. TeRina Christieson

That's awesome, hopefully it will be the same outcome for people possibly in her bubble. Sarah Robinson

Awesome, hope it's the last we hear of it here. Stay safe, stay awesome. Isaac Guyer

income. The Government’s tax relief package for small business is poorly designed and of little help. National’s announced policy this week would put an average $50,000 into each of Nelson’s 3,000 small and medium businesses. Thirdly, we need specific support to rebuild Nelson’s tourism and hospitality sector. Tourism Minister Kelvin Davis has been missing in action. We are an attractive domestic destination but it needs strong promotion. We also need to urgently find safe ways to reopen trans-Tasman tourism and the re-entry of international students. My fourth push is for smart Government infrastructure. I was

delighted to see Nelson’s new cycle trials so busy last weekend when biking with family to and from Rabbit Island. This $100m national cycleways came from the 2009 Jobs Summit as part of National’s response to the last economic crisis. We also wisely invested millions in insulating over 3,000 Nelson cold damp homes. The Government needs in this week’s Budget to show the same sort of innovation. I am also pushing to get on with upgrading our hospital and highways. Nelson has showed tremendous resilience and unity in fighting the virus. We now need the same determination to save jobs and rebuild our economy. Advert.

Caleb Hill’s business has taken a dramatic turn from upholstery and marine sails to providing potentially lifesaving PVC screens. The director of Mortimer upholstery and Marine Covers says it’s humbling to be on the frontlines in the battle against Covid-19. The phone began ringing two days before the national lockdown and Caleb and his small team have been flat out ever since installing protective screens at essential businesses such as petrol stations and pharmacies. After realising the seriousness of the outbreak, Caleb began to think about how he could protect his team and had a screen installed at reception. He took some photos which were shared to Facebook and the demand for his services skyrocketed. “We have made over 200 screens.” To remain in operation as an essential service themselves, Caleb and his team have had to adhere to strict safety measures.

“Our hygiene amplified and we have to stick to a lot of compulsory guidelines.” He says helping stop the spread of Coronavirus with his clear polyvinyl chloride screens has been “awesome.” “It is really humbling to be in a position to make a difference and help with a physical product in this crisis, it doesn’t get much better than that.” Caleb says it must be daunting for workers exposed behind the counter. “It was a feeling of wartime around this but this is a war you can’t fight with guns, you can fight it with stuff like hygiene and screens are one of those tools you can use.” The small team has been putting in long hours and weekend work. “They want them fast and we are prepared to put in the big numbers.” If you require a PVC screen go to www.pvcsafetyscreens.co.nz or call 544 6352

Nelson gets clicking! Nelson businesses have seen customers flock to online ordering and click and collect during Alert Level 3.

Only rain down the drain! Please don’t wash painting equipment, dirty vehicles, garden waste or soil into a stormwater drain or stream. During the COVID-19 shutdown our compliance officers have been called to an increasing number of instances of stream pollution. The main causes have been the washing of paint brushes and other DIY equipment into stormwater drains, and surface contaminants such as soil and sediment being washed into streams or drains. These pollutants can kill fish and other stream life. Paint is toxic, and soil and sediment can have long term impacts as they cloud the water, making it harder for fish to breathe, see and eat and cause skin damage making them more susceptible to disease. Once sediment enters a stream it can settle on the bottom and smother the natural stream bed where algae and invertebrates live and fish like to hide. This affects the food sources and natural lifecycle of stream life. So when you are doing work in the garden, or cleaning a muddy vehicle, remember only rain down the storm drain and keep dirt where it belongs away from our waterways. There’s a $750 fine for anyone caught polluting our rivers and streams.

New 30km/hr speed limit to make Nelson’s city centre safer The speed limit in Nelson’s City Centre has decreased to 30km/hr to provide a safe environment for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians during the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery phase. The emergency speed limit change occurred on Saturday, 9 May with new signage set up within the inner city. Under clause 7.1(2)(b) of the Land Transport Rule the setting of an Emergency Speed Limit can be authorised by a council’s Chief Executive in the case of an emergency, such as an epidemic. Use of public transport is lower than usual, and is expected to remain that way under COVID-19 Alert Levels 2 and 3, and traffic levels in the inner city are currently quite low. However, as people start to return to the centre, Council expects an increase in journeys taken by private vehicles, including bikes and e-scooters. "Reopening our city centre for business is vital for our region’s economic and social wellbeing so we want people to feel safe as they move about our inner city," says Nelson Mayor Rachel Reese. An emergency speed limit can only apply for a maximum of 12 months. However, Council is considering consulting

the public later this year on making the 30km/hr city centre limit permanent as part of a speed limit by-law review. Pursuant to clause 7.1(2)(b) of the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017, an emergency speed limit of 30km/h is set for the roads (or parts of roads) listed below, which are marked in green on the map: • Hardy Street – From Rutherford Street to Collingwood Street

Uniquely Nelson, with the support of Nelson City Council has launched a Let's Get Clicking Nelson City campaign to support retailers and hospitality providers through Alert Level 3 and into Alert Level 2. The campaign has brought together retailers and hospitality providers who were able to open within the restrictions of Alert level 3. Simon Duffy of Uniquely Nelson says that 90 businesses have joined the Let’s Get Clicking Nelson City campaign so far and more are coming on board every day. “Our website traffic has gone through the roof. This campaign has been well received by the Nelson community and our businesses have really appreciated the support. It’s good to see locals supporting locals. Nelson City retailers and hospitality are back in business and are looking forward to Level 2.” Nelson Mayor Rachel Reese says she has heard of local business owners going above and beyond to deliver goods in a contactless way. “Thank you to the retail and hospitality businesses of Nelson for thinking about how to deliver to customers during Alert Level 3 and supporting Nelson’s recovery. It is this entrepreneurial thinking which will help Nelson’s economic recovery.” To find out more visit:

During these unprecedented times, it is fantastic to see locals supporting local businesses which are feeling the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic and its impacts on the Nelson economy. It has been great to see people out collecting barista-made coffees, yummy takeaways, and retail goods after ordering them online. Now, as alert level 2 begins and allows more freedoms, it will be fantastic to see Nelson city start to really hum again and a sense of normality return. From Thursday 14 May, shops, malls, cafés, restaurants, shops, cinemas, health services, butcheries, and bakers can all reopen. Businesses can have customers on their premises if they have good contact registers, maintain physical distancing of one metre between customers and regularly disinfect surfaces. So, it is exciting that we are able to visit physical stores again and have an enjoyable customer ex-

perience. We can all look forward to dining out again too, although cafés and restaurants will need to keep groups seated and separated. In level 2, the convenience of online shopping will continue, but be sure to buy local products wherever possible and use local services. Every time you do this, you will inject money back into our local economy. Alert level 2 also presents an opportunity to support local tourism and explore the beauty of our own backyard. So why not book a local holiday today? During the past six weeks, the Nelson Regional Development Agency stopped all ‘business as usual’ and turned all its efforts into Covid response activity. Chief Executive Mark Rawson says their first function was to provide a one-on-one business continuity service which connects small companies with solutions providers in government departments. “We’ve had over 700 busi-

nesses engage with us in the last 4-5 weeks and normally it’s about 350 a year.” NRDA also accessed funds to support small businesses to receive professional advice. They captured and shared insights about what is really happening in our Nelson-Tasman environment with key local decision makers, keeping stakeholders informed about what is happening now

and what is happening next. In partnership with the chamber of commerce, councils, and central government, NRDA have commenced restart and recovery planning to minimise the impacts of Covid-19 and build future resilience into the economy. Their aim is to provide direction and purpose, and to create a clear regional economic case for recovery and restart. How our local

Giants player Sam Dempster has been enjoying spending extra time with his sons Nash and Koda. Photo: Supplied. Sam Dempster, Basketball. The Giants veteran has been enjoying spending time with his young family in what would otherwise be a hectic preseason training regime. “It’s been pretty stressful so it’s nice to just relax and spend time with kids, we had a big day yesterday, we built a hut outside and have just been doing puzzles and keeping busy.” However, Sam admits he will inevitably miss being on the court. “Not playing is tough.We have gone from training almost every day to now no basketball at all, which is pretty tough, and there is none to watch on TV.” With the parks and courts out of action and no hoop at home, Sam has been forced into his driveway to practise his ball skills. “I won’t be shooting but it’s quite nice

Nelson sprinter Micayla Whiti has had to get creative with her training. Photo: Supplied. Micayla Whiti, Athletics. Before the lockdown, Micayla Whiti was busy breaking sprinting records and affirming her status as one of the most promising young athletes in the region. Micayla broke a 38-year-old record for 100m sprint at the recent Nayland College athletics day to become the fastest female in the school’s history. However, after a blockbusting start to her college career, her season has been thrown into limbo. With Saxton Track closed, Micayla has been forced to train on grass. “I love going there and seeing my friends so that has been hard, but I have been

doing some hurdle drills in the backyard and sometimes going to Saxton Fields.” The 13-year old says she has been using the lockdown period to work on her running style and deep breathing techniques. In between training and schoolwork, Micayla has even found time to help the less fortunate. While walking her dog she saw a homeless man living in his car and offered to cook him dinner. “It was cold and windy, so we cooked him some toasties and tea with snacks, so he had food for later.”

The mercurial midfielder and his partner Casey recently gave birth to their first child Ralph. “Ralph’s coming up to five-months-old, so it’s been great spending my time with the two of them and our dog Denzel.” Jordan was battling a back injury prior to the lockdown and was forced to sit out Suburbs’ last MPL fixture. “I had a good rest and then started back fitness once it was pain free.” The 29-year-old says he is in much better shape now that before the Mainland Premier League was put on hold. “I’ve been doing a lot of running and we got ourselves into a bit of a routine of going out for a walk as a family around lunchtime and taking the dog out for a good run.” He says it’s been nice to reflect on himself during the lockdown period and set some personal goals. “To be honest I haven’t really missed much.I’ve got my little family at home with me and that’s all I need for me to happy. It will be nice to get back and see the boys and the banter side of things and doing what I enjoy which is playing football and training again.”

Peter Jones Financial help is on its way for sporting clubs and regional organisations battling to stay afloat in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. Sport NZ has created a $25 million package to provide further short-term relief for organisations at all levels of sport and active recreation. The funds have been made available through savings achieved from the reprioritisation of Sport NZ’s work programme in the wake of Covid-19, as well as the drawing down on cash reserves. Last week’s announcement follows an initial package of support for Sport NZ and High Performance Sport NZ partners announced in early April. The second tranche of support has a focus on providing relief for struggling local and regional sport and recreation organisations.

This relief will be provided via a $15m Community Resilience Fund, which opened on Monday. “Play, active recreation and sport have a key role in maintaining individual health and wellbeing, bringing our communities together and keeping these communities strong,” says Sport NZ CEO Peter Miskimmin. “Clubs and regional organisations are the heartbeat of our sector but have been among the hardest hit by Covid-19, particularly through the loss of Class 4 gaming revenue and membership fees and they need support now more than ever,” he said. The Sport NZ Community Resilience Fund will be administered through New Zealand’s 14 regional sports trusts. Eligible organisations can apply for a maximum of $1000 for clubs and $40,000 for regional bodies. Also included in Sport NZ’s

$25 million relief package are: a partner support fund ($6 million) to help Sport NZ and HPSNZ investment partners maintain critical roles and business functions; an exceptional system support fund ($1 million) to protect key national organisations who are not normal recipients of Sport NZ investment and a physical activity fund ($3 million) to promote play, active recreation and sport opportunities to those who most need it (e.g. people who are less active, disabled or live in high deprivation areas). Further details on these three funds will be announced over the coming weeks. More information on new $25 million short-term relief package and Sport NZ’s wider response to Covid-19 is available at sportnz.org.nz. Applications to the Community Resilience Fund can be made on the Sport Tasman website http://www.sporttasman.org. nz/funding/funding.

It was one and a half centuries ago that one of the most significant moments in New Zealand sports history took place right in our own backyard. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the first ever game of rugby played in what would kick off a religion in the country. The historic fixture, played between the Nelson Rugby Club and Nelson College, will be celebrated and further immortalised in 2020.

Located at the Botanical Reserve, sight of the Historic first game of rugby in New Zealand, the signboard has historical facts and photos to mark the occasion. Born in Waimea West, near Nelson, Charles Monro is credited with introducing Rugby to New Zealand.

The game

The first interclub fixture played under rugby rules in New Zealand, was contested at the Botanical Reserve, Nelson, on Saturday, May 14, 1870. On a grey, calm May afternoon, 18 Nelson College students dressed in matching knickerbockers and shirts, stood shoulder to shoulder across from a much bigger group of local men wearing a collection of tatty shirts of various colour and quality, ready for battle. The schoolboys were favoured amongst the crowd of 200. They had beaten the “Town” team three times out

of four the year before in a hybrid “football” game combining rules from Melbourne Rules Football (now Australian Rules Football) and soccer. But this was a new game. It was organised, with goal posts erected at either end, flags hung from the trees and a healthy crowd included a smattering of women, which was considered note-worthy by the Nelson Colo-

nists’ correspondent in his report to the newspaper. As the teams were organised by their captains a hush hung over the field as the players prepared for the kick off. It was - if watched by someone with no knowledge of the rules – rather chaotic. Players kicked, chased, scrummaged and pushed each other around the field.

The younger college players had the better of the early exchanges. Their speed caught their flat-footed opponents off-guard at times, shutting downplay before the Town players could decide where to kick or run. But as the game

wore on the bigger and stronger Town team came into their own. When Alfred Drew snuck down the right-hand flank and touched the ball down behind the College goal, earning a “try” at kicking a goal, it gave the Town team its first shot at points, an opportunity Drew didn’t miss. As the local jeweller and watch maker swung his boot through the leather Gilbert ball with 18 College players attempting to charge it down, he became the first person to score a point in an official rugby game in New Zealand. After a vocal reaction from the crowd, a hush once again descended on the Botanics as players made their way back to their positions. It didn’t last long though, with the ensuing kickoff the crowd roared back to life and the players flung their bodies back into action. Town doubled their lead sometime later when J Clark scored a field goal. With the score at 2-0 it brought an end to the game. A game that no one

in attendance that day would have known to be the first game to be played in this country under the rugby rules.

The beginnings

When the Nelson Football Club was established in 1868 the word “rugby” was nowhere to be seen, let alone the game itself. The original notice declaring the formation of the club was printed in the Nelson Examiner newspaper. It read: “A football club has been formed in Nelson which we hope to see prosper, as we do all sports which promote healthy exercise.” Sport in Nelson before the formation of this club had been focussed on horses, pick-up games of cricket or variations of football. Nelson was only 26 years old when

the club was formed. This was a colony still in its infancy and Sport was a luxury that many men didn’t have time for, outside of special occasions like galas and fairs Robert Collings Tennent was responsible for the formation of the Nelson Rugby Club which played a hybrid of soccer and Aussie Rules. This brand was played for two years, then, early in 1870, Charles John Monro returned to Nelson after BILL SMITH GEORGE HARPER ERIC (Fritz) SNOW DAVID HAVILI having been to school in England.

As part of the Rugby World Cup Game On Festival in 2011, a re-enactment of the first game of Rugby was organised by Nelson City Council. The 18 a-side game, played at the Botanics on 20th September, 2011 re-enacted the original match between Nelson College and the Nelson Rugby Club. The Rugby Club team, captained by Chris Pugh, included 15 current players and 10 retired players; the Nelson College team was their current First XV. The game was played according to the "Rugby Laws"[PDF] for 1870, as introduced by Charles Monro. tle of the country’s oldest club. The club has survived a number of tribulations during its existence spanning three centuries. A major crisis occurred from 19151919 during the first World War. All of the club members were absent when the annual meeting was called, as they were overseas at war. The Nelson College Old Boys

were in the same position and the two clubs joined together to form the Whakatu club. This allowed the Nelson Rugby Football Club to continue, and the agreement continued during World War II. Perhaps the most notable of the achievements of Nelson Rugby Football Club is the fact that of the 418 first-class matches played by Nelson Rugby

Football Union to the time of the Nelson Bays amalgamation in 1969, only two of the union’s teams have taken the field without a Nelson Rugby Football Club player being included. In total, the club has produced four All Blacks and a number of Maori All Blacks, Junior All Blacks and All Black Sevens players.

To celebrate the date of the original rugby game to be played in Nelson, the club had organised a dinner featuring former All Black coach Graham Henry and other special guests, but Covid-19 put an end to that. However the com-

mittee says it may reschedule the event later in the year. For those keen to find out more though, the Nelson Provincial Museum is hosting an online exhibition on the game at www. nelsonmuseum.co.nz/rugby150
