Drags roar to a close

Air NZ cost health board $1.8M Air New Zealand’s “rapacious approach” to air fares has cost the region’s health board an additional $1.8 million since competing airline Origin Pacific collapsed, the equivalent of 100 hip replacements, 1000 cataract operations or the annual salaries of 25 nurses. The Nelson Marlborough District Health Board’s former chief executive John Peters – who retired from the DHB in 2012 after eight years as its head – says since Origin Pacific was competed out of the market in

2006 the DHB has faced additional costs on its air bills of $1.8 million. “Origin stopped carrying passengers in August 2006, and by the end of the DHB’s financial year in June 2007, ten months later, the costs for air travel had increased by over $200,000 compared to the same period the previous year of using Origin. That was nearly 20 per cent increase, when the actual passenger numbers had grown by less than two per cent.” He says in the seven and a half years since

andrew@nelsonweekly.co.nz then, and at that annual rate of around $240,000 additional cost per year, the cost of air travel will have exceeded what would have been paid to Origin by something around $1.8 million. “There is no compensation from central government that money has to be found from the local

health budget. To put it in perspective, this represents around 100 hip replacements, or 1000 cataract operations, or 25 nurses – or any number of other vital health services for the Nelson and Marlborough region that could no longer be provided, but instead goes to Air New Zealand to shore it up on the routes it still has competition.” Air New Zealand was contacted to answer questions raised by John but did not get

attack

A Nelson man was counting his lucky stars on Saturday after he was attacked by a shark while spear fishing off The Glen. The two-metre bronze whaler came “in the blink of an eye” to swim right at Adam Gudsel, who had just speared a kingfish a few minutes earlier and was still reeling it in. Adam says the incident happened “in a flash”

but instinct took over and he was able to kick it on the nose and divert it. Straight away he yelled for help from a kayaker nearby. He jumped on his boat and was taken back to the beach as the shark took Adam’s kingfish. He says he has heard of a bronze whaler shark taking speared kingfish off The Glen

but was shocked that it came for him and thinks it may be behaviour its learnt. “It’s a popular spot for spear fishermen and perhaps picking fish off the end of a spear is easy pickings but it’s a concern that it’s coming for people.” Adam says he retreated to the beach with his “tail between his legs” but was out again the next

day, just not in the same spot. “My wife and mum won’t let me,” he joked. He believes the shark either just tried to bump him out of the way so he could get the speared kingfish or got a bit excited about it and actually came for him. “I’ll never know and I sleep better at night thinking it was the first one.”

There have been reported deaths due to an attack from a bronze whaler, the latest in Auckland last year. Adam says he wanted to thank the kayaker who helped him and said it hadn’t been a good year, losing a wet suit in Kaiteriteri last weekend and a Cressi dive watch off the roof of his car at the end of last year.

“I think it would be very exciting if someone did something like that, it would be lovely. He’d obviously thought a lot about it to do it.”

“It’d be alright I reckon, I don’t have any problem with that. As long as he proposed to the right person.”

“I’d be mortified, it’s just a little bit showy for my liking.”

“That would be pretty crazy, it’s great, good on him. It’s a way to make it a bit important.”

any information through before the paper went to print. John says the DHB raised the issue with Air New Zealand on a number of occasions but the standard response was that they do have a number of low cost fares on most flights. “Unfortunately, we could never get patients to co-operate with having their illness or accident at a time to suit Air New Zealand’s advance booking requirements, and so the late booking high prices remain unavoidable.” Although John says the DHB was top of the list of those affected as “probably the largest single user of passenger services in the top of the South Island”, the approach to fare pricing has cost the region significantly in lost opportunities. The concerns from the former CEO of the DHB is one of many that have come forward since Nelson Weekly highlighted the

issue of Air New Zealand’s prices. Their high fares have also attracted criticism from its most regular flyers, families and Grey Power. A Nelson family said they looked at flights with Air New Zealand to fly from Nelson to Los Angeles in the school holidays later this year. The price was $12,000 return. To fly from Christchurch to Sydney and then Los Angeles with Virgin Australia on the same days was $7000, a $5000 difference. Nelson Grey Power executive member Addo Mulders says he sought a meeting with Prime Minister John Key in February to discuss the issue, as many elderly are simply choosing not to travel because they can’t afford to fly. “There are specials but you have to have a computer system at home and a lot of elderly don’t have that in their homes so they miss out.” He says he sought the meeting to try and force the government to stop Air New Zea-

land’s price “gouging”. “We want the government to rein them in and stop them demanding whatever they want to demand. That should be stopped and it’s not fair trading and it makes you laugh when we [taxpayers] own 50 per cent of the airline.” Regular air travellers say they’ve been left with no option but to pay Air New Zealand’s high fares after it cancelled its frequent flyer scheme called Starfish. Starfish allowed regular fliers to receive a 30 per cent discount on all domestic flights for an annual fee of $800, or a 15 per cent discount for those prepared to pay $200. It was a small relief from the high prices paid by those who don’t travel as often, but Air New Zealand has canned it, citing its takeup being less than expected. One of its users, Matt Thompson, flies to Wellington and back every week for business and says he was shocked and disappointed when he was informed the service

was to close. “We’re spending a lot of money with Air New Zealand and now there is virtually no benefit that comes with that.” Cyndy Dever was another user of Starfish and says she often flew to Taupo and Napier for work but now the prices are “out of our league” and she will have to drive, turning a two hour journey into an 11 hour trip. “We get stung with the outrageous fares of $550 one way to Taupo. You can fly to Australia return for that.” Editor’s note: For the second time in three weeks we’ve approached Air New Zealand for a balanced response and they have been “unable” to fully answer our questions, despite plenty of warning. It’s our belief that Air New Zealand’s communications department is trying to stifle this story, demonstrating the same lack of respect they’re showing the Nelson public to date. The desired result on their part is to hope like hell we all fall asleep or give up.

Just 17 pupils at Salisbury School Simon Bloomberg simon@waimeaweekly.co.nz

Salisbury School’s roll is falling at an alarming rate, raising questions of the school’s future and the Ministry of Education’s enrolment policy for the country’s only residential special educational centre for girls. Last year, the Ministry of Education tried to close the school and replace it with community-based special education that involved sending some of the girls to a boys residential college in Halswell in Christchurch. But the school fought the decision and it stayed open when the High Court ruled that placing girls in a boys residential college was unlawful and did not take into account the girls’ safety. Now the school is facing another challenge with its roll falling to just 17 students, with up to four of those likely to leave soon as they come to the end of their two year course. Only seven new students have been enrolled in the last year. That represents a significant decline in student numbers with Ministry of Education figures showing the roll fall-

Student numbers have been declining at Salisbury School since the government introduced a “intensive wrap around” service. ing from 71 at the same time in 2011 to 43 in 2012 and just 21 last year. Salisbury chair of the board of trustees, Julia O’Connor, did not want to comment on the declining numbers but did say that the school has no control over enrolments, which are set by the Ministry of Education. “The demand for Salisbury is high. We get a lot of people phoning who want to enrol girls in the school.” Ministry of Education’s Jill Bond says “one of the reasons for the recent fluctuation is the introduction of the intensive wrap around service” that pro-

vides a community-based alternative to residential schooling. There are presently 221 students enrolled in the service around the country, including 38 girls. The declining roll also means some of the facilities at the school are not being used and Jill says “the board and principal have worked really hard to determine which of the facilities are best suited for the students and the facilities that they’re using”. Minister of Education, Hekia Parata, declined to comment despite her office being contacted repeatedly by the Nelson Weekly.

‘Flash mob’ proposal stuns bride-to-be

Andrew Board Editor SmokErS: More than 10 per cent of Nelson’s Year 10 students admit to being regular smokers, according to information released by Action on Smoking and Health. The survey of 27,921 students nationwide showed that 76 per cent of students in Nelson aged 14 and 15 said they’d never smoked, while 4.1 per cent say they’re daily smokers and 7.3 per cent say they’re regular smokers. More than 12 per cent weren’t completed. NoiSY plANE DElAYED: The arrival of NZ Post’s Fokker 27 Friendship to undertake the mail service in Nelson has been delayed until the end of April. Chief Executive Kaye McNabb was advised last week that the upgrade of the navigational equipment at Blenheim Airport has been delayed until the end of the month, after the royal visit. low crimE: Total crime in the Tasman Police District is at its lowest point since 1996, according to figures released by Statistics New Zealand. The stats, which are to December 31 last year, show that crime in the district has been steadily declining since a peak of 18,804 offences in 2009. Last year, there were 14,634 offences recorded.

Kathy Barton will never have another lunch break like it. Hauled up in front of dozens of singing and dancing strangers in the Richmond Mall food court, Kathy was handed a bunch of flowers before the “flash mob” split leaving her partner Craig Kempton standing ten metres away in a tie and holding an engagement ring. “I was stunned,” she says, “Completely shocked. I was like a stunned mullet, it was surreal.” Craig spent six weeks organising the wedding proposal and included the expertise of Soundstage for the “flash mob” of singers and dancers, belting out the song “I think I want to marry you”. He also organised for one of Kathy’s friends to meet her during her lunch break from Farmers and for their family members to appear at the end of the proposal. “I got three hours sleep on Friday night,” says Craig. “I was so nervous but 99.9 per cent sure it would end the way

A flash mob turned into a marriage proposal at Richmond Mall on Saturday with Craig Kempton getting down on one knee to his bride-to-be Kathy Barton. Photos: Andrew Board. I wanted it to. I had no exit strategy.” The proposal started with Kathy enjoying lunch before two Soundstage members broke into song, by the second verse dozens of others, ranging from children to older adults had joined in and had the mall rocking. As the song came to a close, Craig’s youngest son Shaun approached Kathy with a bunch of flowers, took her

hand and led her to the front of the flash mob. There she stood with her hand over her mouth as the mob split and Craig was left standing with the ring. The crowd broke out into applause as he walked towards her, got on one knee and proposed. Shaking, she said yes. Craig says he got the idea from a Youtube clip and was thrilled with how it turned out. “We were just buzzing, abso-

lutely buzzing. It went off better than I could have dreamed.” Kathy says while the engagement was a complete shock and surprise she’s warned Craig to not even try to beat it. “I’ve told him he’s not even allowed to try,” she joked. On Sunday the pair said they were still “on cloud nine” after the engagement but had no firm plans about when or where the wedding would take place.

Police arrest 16 for drunk driving Sixteen people were caught drinkdriving over the weekend, some of them more than double the legal limit. Police say they are disappointed with the results of a “road policing” operation targeting drink-driving in both Nelson city and on rural roads. All of the drivers who were found over the legal drink-driving limit will face charges for driving under the influence of alcohol. Tasman District Commander Superintendent Richard Chambers says a number of those people recorded breath alcohol levels more than double the legal limit. “I’m very disappointed that these people chose to get behind the wheel of a car after consuming that level of alcohol. A number of those drivers were detected leaving licensed premises which suggests to me that we have some bar managers shirking their responsibility as well. “This sort of behaviour has to change and if people continue to ignore the message we will do our level best to remove them from the roads,” he says. Richard says three drunk-drivers were located in Mapua, with one

blowing 876 microgrammes per litre of breath. The legal limit is 400mic. One person was located after leaving a licensed premises in Hira and blew 877mic and another was located in Rai Valley and blew 576mic. He said officers processing a person for drink-driving in Upper Moutere also did voluntary breath tests on a number of people returning from a bus trip. Three of those people blew over 400mic. “I am in no doubt that had the police officers not been there those people would have got into their cars and driven home,” he says. A number of infringement notices were also issued for speeding during the weekend operation, with drivers being clocked at speeds of up to 87kmh in a 50kmh area and 132kmh in a 100kmh area. Over the past three weeks police have suspended more than 100 motorists for exceeding 100 demerit points, the majority for speeding. Richard says police were very disappointed by the results overall and would continue to focus on both drink-driving and speeding.

Protestors aim to ban ‘legal highs’ Protests against the sale of legal highs were held in Nelson and Richmond on Saturday, with hundreds of signatures collected in an attempt to force the government and local councils to ban the synthetic drugs. Other protests were held

around the country and all were highlighting the damage the legal highs can cause. Robyn Hogg says the petition is part of a nationwide effort to ban the drugs. “Every day here, we are reading the stories of the devastation and heartache that these

products are causing. “We want to send the government a strong message and indicate to the local councils that we want them to ban the production, distribution and sale of these products in their communities.”

‘Superb’ rescue boat in for repairs The Coastguard’s new rescue boat had to return from a rescue last week after one of its inflated bags burst. The Nyad 8.5 high-speed response vessel was bought by the Nelson Coastguard 18 months ago and has made a huge difference to its response time, says president Mark Rumsey. But last week’s burst, while on the way to a mission at Farewell Spit, meant it had to come off the water to be fitted with new bags and receive other minor

work. “We’ve got new bags coming but financially it is a massive dent, it’s $9000 for an organisation that’s run on the smell of an oily rag. But we have taken advantage of it being off the water to tidy up a few minor maintenance issues,” says Mark. The burst bag is the first issue they’ve had with the boat, which has cut down response time and made the organisation busier than ever. “It’s been superb for us. This is a high-speed response vessel and

that means we can get onto a mission quickly and save lives quicker or be of assistance quicker,” he says. The boat is now going out three to four times a month and has been getting busier, especially since the start of the year. Mark says they’re victims of their own success. “I think that’s due to the visibility of the boat on the water and people having more and more faith in the Coastguard’s ability to respond.”

The Coastguard can either be called direct or receives missions from police and has 18 fully trained volunteers that are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “The guys we have are really amazing because they’re out there doing it all the time. They do a fantastic job for this community,” he says. The Nelson Coastguard will be launching a membership drive within the next month and Mark says he hopes locals get in behind the service.

A Posh Picnic at Broadgreen Historic House took place last Sunday and received a fantastic turn-out from Nelson’s car clubs, say organisers. About 40 vehicles turned up for the day out, representing many different makes and ages of cars. People really got into the spirit of the picnic with period costumes, elegant table settings and of course the most important part of any picnic, the tea and cakes. “It was really successful, everybody enjoyed it and they want to do it again,” says organiser Helen Le Cren. “It hasn’t been decided

whether we will do it annually but we certainly will be doing it again.” Organisers of the posh picnic would like to thank all those who supported the event with a special mention to the Stoke businesses who provided prizes for the day. The cause for the picnic was to celebrate the opening of the Broadgreen House transport exhibition, “A Past Well Travelled”. The exhibition is now open for the public to see and focuses on the old modes of transport used by people to move around the Stoke, Nelson and Richmond areas.

Parade to recognise our emergency heroes

Police will be firing a taser in the middle of Trafalgar St this Saturday, but it will be no cause for alarm. Instead the 50,000-volt weapon will be deployed as part of First Responders 2014: Nelson’s inaugural emergency services parade. First Responders 2014 is expected to involve around 100 personnel from police, fire, St John Ambulance, Civil Defence, Nelson Surf Life Saving, Nelson Volunteer Coastguard, Territorials, Red Cross, Maori Wardens, Nelson Community Patrol and Richmond Community Patrol. The parade, which will include over a dozen emergency services vehicles, leaves Miller’s Acre at 11am and heads down Trafalgar St to the Church Steps, where emergency services

Organiser Matt Lawrey says Nelson’s emergency services are getting right into the spirit of the event, which promises to be a hit with kids. “The men and women of Nelson’s emergency services make a huge contribution to our community, but unless you’re a victim of tragedy or crime, you never really get a chance to say ‘thanks’,” he says. “Saturday’s parade gives Organiser of First Responders 2014 Matt Lawrey and people an opportunity to Constable Kane Foote with a taser which police will be give them a pat on the back demonstrating after the parade.

St John needs more volunteers

When Kane Bint graduated to become a St John volunteer 12 years ago he didn’t quite realise how quickly he was going to be called on. Driving from Christchurch to Nelson, Kane drove around a corner to find a car implanted in the back of a hay bailer in Marlborough and he was the first on the scene. “I was literally still feeling happy that I’d completed the basic training when it happened and it was a really bad one. They say you remember your first and I definitely do.” Kane is one of 40 volunteers that give up a minimum of 24 hours a month to work for St John from its Nelson or Richmond station, but the organisation is after more and will be hosting an information evening later this month. Shift manager Kris Gagliardi says St John needs at least six volunteers every day and volunteers are either rostered on as the “second member” of an ambulance crew, assigned to assist the paid member, or in the events team which attends events like fairs, rugby games and speedway. He says the ideal candidates have some time to give, are realistic about the role and that it is often quite mundane and not all “emergencies and sirens”, compassionate and ideally have an interest in the science of patient care and find diseases and illness interesting. Kane says the benefits of NZQA qualifications, working for a dedicated team

it’s that look I guess, you get hooked on it.” Applicants need to have a reasonable level of fitness and a current full driver’s licence for three years. For more information contact Francine Currie on 546 9445 extension 2 or email francine.currie@stjohn.org.nz.

Aging expo attracts 3000 The annual Nelson-Tasman Positive Ageing Expo just keeps getting bigger and better, with the sixth edition held at the Headingly Centre near Richmond last Thursday attracting around 3000 visitors and a record 68 stall holders. The expo was aimed at showcasing the recreational, health and social services available for senior citizens in the Nelson-Tasman region. It included stalls, seminars, activities and free health checks and CarFit checks and one of the organisers, Tasman District Council Mike Tasman-Jones, says that formula proved to be popular. “It was easily the biggest one we have had. We had about 3000 people come through and the numbers were steady right through the day - there were still lots of people around at the end. “I think the range of stalls had a lot to do with that. One person said it was like going to an older adults Disneyland, there was so much to do and see.” Mike says another big appeal of the expo is that it gives people the opportunity to speak to representatives from all the

The activities and demonstrations and seminars were also a big attraction. Stall holder Jo Kara of the homebased healthcare and support agency Access says they have been to the expo every year and it always provides an excellent forum for promoting their services. Jo says the expo is also “a great opportunity to see all my colleagues” working in related agencies throughout the Nelson-Tasman region. The expo was opened by the Minister of Senior Citizens, Jo Goodhew.

When there was competition, Air New Zealand doubled the number of flights and charged fares lower than Origin Pacific, to the point where Nelson became the third busiest domestic airport in the country. (It isn’t now). According to Air New Zealand’s own figures this must have meant running these aircraft at a crippling loss. Why would they do that? The purpose was obvious, because as soon as they had run Origin Pacific out of business, they cut the number of flights and doubled the fares and have now more than trebled them. This is a classic case where corporate strength was used to crush the competition and create a monopoly to make extortionate profits. Patrick Cronin.

Just to add to the depth of the variety of fares may I add my experience, this time on International Flights. Whilst I thoroughly agree with the high cost of flights from Nelson there is a similar story here. A few years ago we planned a trip to Canada. With a prominent public notice from Air NZ of impending rises in fares, we looked on Grab a seat about 7 months ahead, expecting to get the best deal. There were few cheap seats so we thought we’d better take what was on offer. We paid around $2700 each, return to Vancouver. Then just a matter of 6 weeks before we were due to travel, out came a special fare of $1700 return to Vancouver. There you are, we paid an extra $1000 penalty for paying early. Chris Clark. I totally agreed about Air NZ ripping off Nelson. I had a bad

experience with them two years ago, April 2012. My father passed away and I had to go back to Jakarta urgently for the funeral. We drove to Christchurch and flew with Air Asia. I was so busy with funeral etc and came back to Christchurch a week later without making any booking. Initially I want to drive back to Nelson with a rental car but found myself too tired to do that. I made an online booking that day and they charged me the highest price I could imagine, $280 one way Christchurch to Nelson. I was advised by the staff there was a compassionate fare available and I could claim it back once I bought the ticket. I filled all the paper work from Air New Zealand and sent all documents for proof this was an emergency trip, only to find out from head office that I was not eligible and the price of the ticket I purchased was still cheaper than their normal price. I was shocked and stunned with this explanation. What would be the full price then from Christchurch to Nelson? Era Creevey. Read your article with interest, just thought I would add my own experience to the mix. In July 2012, I had just finished my degree and was heading over to England to get married to my very patient fiancée. There was fog in Auckland for our (my Mum and I) connecting flight. We still felt we stood a good chance of making it to Auckland, because the people in front of us in queue got prioritized over other passengers, and they were only going as far as the Gold Coast. Turns out, we weren’t flying with Air NZ to England,

so we were out of luck. Seems Air NZ staff in Nelson will only pull their fingers out for their own international customers. Mum was insured, and I, being a broke student, wasn’t. The salt in the wound was the rebooked flight that cost me a couple of grand, was with Air NZ, the same people who wouldn’t exercise a little common sense and prioritize us. I lived with that debt, paying it off my credit card, for quite a while. I won’t forget that – all it would have taken was 5 minutes of work for them. David West. Recently one of my family members had a an issue with them. He was on the way to the airport, got a flat tyre, fixed it, but arrived too late. He had to purchase another ticket at the cost of $400. He had insurance, but the claim was refused because, he should be allowing for breakdowns when travelling to the airport. He will never buy insurance for domestic flights again. Debbie Baxter. It was with interest I read Steve Page’s editorial. My wife and I have been treated most fairly by Air NZ with compassionate fares. Over Christmas we were in Wellington and due to return to Nelson on Monday 30 December. On Saturday 28 December I received notice that my brother had died in Christchurch and would have

his funeral service Monday 30. Within 24 hours we were informed that my sisterin-law had died and her funeral service would be Tuesday 31 December. We asked if we could change our flights and the request was met with courtesy and much sympathy. The cost was $1300 but we applied for bereavement fares. To our surprise and gratitude, towards the end of February we had over $1200 paid into our bank account. This proves Air NZ does “have a heart”. David Turner.

Wakefield misses out on cycle trail gravy train Simon Bloomberg Reporter

simon@waimeaweekly.co.nz

Businesses and community groups in Wakefield and Tapawera are launching a campaign to fight the Tasman District Council's “shortsighted proposal” to cut spending on the Great Taste Tasman Trail. The council included a $600,000 cut to spending on the cycle trail in their draft annual plan which was released last month. That means construction of the next stage of the trail, linking Wakefield and Tapawera, will be delayed until the council can secure further funding and information on maintenance costs. However, the proposal has been labelled “short-sighted” by Focus on Wakefield member Emma Marshall, who says the council have got it wrong. She says the completed section of the trail linking Nelson and Richmond to Kaiteriteri is incredibly popular and that success should send a clear message to council that they can't afford to stop now. “The trail is gaining so much momentum we need to keep

Photo: Simon Bloomberg. going with it. If we stop, we could be losing a wonderful opportunity to put Wakefield and beyond on the tourist map,” Emma says. Nelson Tasman Cycle Trails Trust business development and marketing manager Catharine Wood says the numbers of riders support Emma's argument, with counters at the Waimea Inlet recording 10,847 cyclists from December 2013 to February 2014. The Mapua Ferry, which links the trail between Rabbit Island and Mapua, carried 16,117 cyclists last year. Although the section of the trail from Richmond to

Wakefield has been completed Wakefield Bakery owner Trish Sullivan says the benefits will not be fully realised in Wakefield until the full 175 kilometre loop through to Tapawera and Motueka is finished. Emma says council is promoting Pigeon Valley Rd as a temporary link between Wakefield and Motueka but that is not a viable option. “People don't want to ride on the road and Pigeon Valley is used by logging trucks so it's too dangerous. The trail needs to go through Spooner's Tunnel as soon as possible - that will be a great attraction.”

Emma says the business community is committed to supporting the cycle trail although the council's proposal to delay the next stage is eroding some of that support. “There are people out there who have signed up as official partners of the trail and now it's possible that the trail won't even go past their place. I think they are getting a bit disillusioned.” Wakefield Villa Tearooms owner Ally Preller says they are “big fans” of the trail, becoming official partners and raising $980 for the Trust through donations, and labels the council's proposal “a crying shame.” Emma says Wakefield business and community groups will be making submissions to council objecting to the proposed cuts to spending on the trail. She is also encouraging individuals to send in submissions which need to be made to council by 4.30 pm, Tuesday April 15. The 175 kilometre trail is now more than 60 per cent completed with the remaining 67 kilometres, originally scheduled for completion in 2018, estimated to cost $2.060 million.

Steve Greally

This Saturday a number of my staff will be taking part in the First Responders parade in Trafalgar St alongside our colleagues in a range of emergency services. I’m really proud of the work police do here in Nelson. At times it can be a pretty tough job, but I can honestly say the police men and women in this area are a dedicated, friendly and professional bunch. I hope plenty of you will take the opportunity to come along on Saturday and have a chat with them. There will be a range of staff available, including road police, community staff, dogs and our recruitment team. If you’re young, fit and keen for a challenging, but very rewarding, career you should definitely come and have a chat with the recruiters. The highway staff will have our flash new orange car on display and we’ll also have our speed laser set up if anyone wants to check how fast they can run. We know that the dogs are the most popular members of our team so two of them will be coming with their handlers. I would remind parents that the dogs are operational patrol dogs and everyone will need to keep a respectful distance unless the dog handler says otherwise. Myself and our district commander Richard Chambers will also be there, and we’re both always keen to hear our community’s views, so please feel free to stop for a yarn. See you on Saturday!

NMDHB chief executive, Chris Fleming believes there are many positives in the move. “This gives us an opportunity to create a community-facing service that delivers benefits through co-locating whilst presenting opportunities to make more savings.” The three houses Public Health currently occupy on Franklyn St are in need of significant renovation, which is unlikely to be undertaken. It is likely that these houses would be sold and removed from the site.

Battlefield volunteer gets her medals One of Nelson's highest-ranking returned servicemen Lieutenant Colonel Ken Fenton served alongside countless soldiers who received medals for bravery in World War II and the Vietnam War. But Ken has never been prouder as he watched his wife Joan receive two service medals in recognition of two years of voluntary work for the Red Cross during the Vietnam War. Joan was awarded the New Zealand General Service Medal and New Zealand Operational Service Medal at a ceremony at their Richmond home last Tuesday to recognise her voluntary work in Vietnam from 1968 to 1970. Joan, who went to Vietnam with Ken when he was appointed as commander of the New Zealand V Force in 1968, worked as a Red Cross volunteer at a US field hospital in Saigon. She also helped out at orphanages in and around Saigon and often joined Ken when he visited New Zealand soldiers and medical teams based near enemy lines. “I spent every Wednesday morning as a Red Cross Volunteer, wearing my US Red Cross Volunteer uniform, at the Third US Field Hospital near Tan San Nhut Airport,” Joan says. “Wounded

and sick military personnel were brought in by helicopter and in an outdoor triage area their uniforms were cut off and they were showered. I visited every ward in the hospital doing small personal messages for the patients and distributing writing materials, reading matter and cookies baked in America from a cart.” Joan says she was also busy looking after a steady stream of New Zealand military personnel "transiting through Saigon”. As a result their "small house virtually became a mess” which the US Army recognised by installing a 10 kilowatt generator on their section to provide extra power. Joan was also an unofficial ambassador for New Zealand after the ambassador's wife left South Vietnam. She was an escort for Prime Minister Sir Keith Holyoake's wife Norma when she visited South Vietnam in July 1970 and hosted a number of prominent US military staff. Although Saigon was relatively safe, Joan says it became increasingly stressful following the Tet Offensive as Viet Cong guerrillas launched terrorist-style attacks

Viet Cong rockets fell “500 to 700 metres” from their house while a satchel bomb was thrown at an electrical substation on their street knocking out power. They also had some sleepless nights as US planes bombed the approaches to Saigon causing "the foundations of our house to tremble and the shutters to rattle incessantly”. “One day, a party from the Vietnamese Police Training College

turned up at our place with a box of hand grenades to help protect ourselves - they felt our street was not safe. But we always slept with a loaded shotgun, M16 or semiautomatic rifle alongside the bed which Ken considered enough protection without the grenades." Joan says there was no doubt in her mind that she was in an operational area. “Today, I look back with some pride that I stuck it out for two years and made the best

of difficult situations.” Nelson RSA President Barry Pont says they are very proud of Joan who becomes the only returned servicewoman among the 38 Vietnam veterans in the NelsonTasman region. Barry, who also served in Vietnam, says he spent two weeks in Saigon guarding the New Zealand Embassy and appreciates the dangers Joan faced on a daily basis. “They were getting terrorist attacks in Saigon all the time. The Viet Cong were living there in the city - it wasn't a safe place. Joan also went out and visited a lot of field hospitals and when you do that you are in jungle greens. She put herself in a dangerous situation everytime she did that.” Barry says it was a photograph of Joan at one of the field hospitals that led to Tuesday's awards' ceremony. “I was visiting Ken at home and I saw a photo of Joan, hanging on the wall, in her jungles greens at a field hospital in Vietnam. I thought she deserved recognition for her work there so the RSA applied for the medals.” The Chief of Defence Staff, Lieutenant General Tim Keating, approved the application so now, 44 years after she was in Vietnam, Joan has been recognised for her work.

NCC’s new Waterfront’s history comes to life approach to art funding Walking along Wakefield Quay on a Sunday afternoon is already a popular enough activity but this weekend it won’t just be the view to entertain walkers. The Nelson Historical Society is opening up its annual field trip to the public with guided walks on Wakefield Quay as part of Heritage Week. Society members, many of them in costumes depicting different time periods in Nelson’s history, will be stationed at points along the quay during the afternoon to give illustrated talks. The guides will share stories of people, places and events associated with Wakefield Quay. Society secretary Annette Lee says these include Nelson’s railway, port hotels, the port police and post office, and the Anchor Shipping and Foundry Company; to the Power House, the Boulder Bank and Cut, Nelson Yacht Club, the Boathouse and the saltwater baths. Participants can extend their walk at either end of Wakefield Quay to take in other sites of historical interest, including Wakefield’s landing spot and the Seaman’s Mission. The Nelson Historical Society has developed the walk especially for Heritage Week but after the weekend people will be able to take the walk themselves with a map downloaded from the Nelson

Nelson City Council is changing the way it funds public art with a new fund established to attract submissions from local artists, as opposed to spending it on projects completed by out-of-town artists. The council has allocated $125,000 in this year’s draft annual plan to fund arts projects in the city and is seeking submissions on how the community sees this working. The change comes after some ratepayers were upset to see public money spent on projects like the Miazu Park and Gateway sculptures that were completed by out-oftown artists. Councillor Ruth Copeland says the move to open up the process to local artists comes after the council arts fund was left unspent due to lack of staff capacity to deliver. “We hope this signals to the arts community that we’re ready to engage with the community. “The refocusing of this fund is intended to inspire the artists in our community to come forward with their ideas and vision. We have so many talented creative people in the region, we’d like to see their vision in our city.” For more information visit www. nelsoncitycouncil.co.nz

City Council’s website. The society holds an annual field trip for members each autumn and this year, as the inaugural Laurie Dale Memorial field trip, it is being opened to the public. The former society president and field trip organiser died earlier this year and, as a special tribute to Laurie who was a postal history enthusiast, the story of the port post office will be included in the walk. Annette says Wakefield Quay has always been an important part of the city’s

history and people are bound to learn something they didn’t know. The walks will depart from the Sunderland Pier car park (between the Nelson Yacht Club and the Power House) from 1.30pm, following the unveiling of the Nelson City Council’s newest heritage panel. The final tour will depart at 4pm. If wet, guides will talk to groups in the Boathouse. Throughout the afternoon, people will be able to relax inside the Boathouse and enjoy a Devonshire tea and displays.

GENERATIONS OF NELSON Brought to you by Marsden House

THE FIRST BREWERY Boutique brewing has been a part of Nelson’s fabric since 1842 when Charles White, a Methodist minister, bricklayer and farmworker established his brewery behind the

“Malthouse” in Brightwater. He also owned and leased-out several hotels and in at least two cases he sued the licensees for not selling his beer. Clearly, business and religion were kept in separate pigeon-holes.

I have been walking the streets of Nelson, and enjoying myself as well. In just one street alone I found some attractive and interesting front gardens. Like the household that didn’t want a garden at all, and cunningly cobble - stoned the small area between the house and the street. Good idea. Why garden if you don’t want to. Then again if the mood should take a change, a few pots arranged here and there would look great, either filled or unfilled to suit the fancy of the people inside. Indeed I did find a street frontage decorated with an arrangement of pots of all sorts of shapes and sizes completely empty, and looking most promising. Another household had grown a hedge of that hardy, drought resistant Teucrium fruticans with silver foliage and pale blue flowers. They obviously would have liked some pillars as part of the frontage, but they didn’t have such a thing, so they shaped some pillars with the Teucrium instead. A crafty idea that is very effective. Another house sported quite a large assortment of cacti of varying shapes and sizes. Not something that I would do myself, but this garden was quite outstanding in its own way. As a contrast, a little further along, I found a very soothing sight. The house is painted the palest grey. In the tiny garden in front, are planted two Robinia Mop Tops. These are the tall ones, but there is also a shorter variety available. Behind the trees are planted deep blue hydrangeas, and some pale cottagey plants poked their faces through a white picket fence. The whole effect is one of cool peace.

Another garden hid behind a tall cream wall. But the wall is recessed in three places with a fine display of tall prunus lusitanicus trees planted in the recesses. They have been shaped in the manner of a three tiered topiary tree. I’m thinking this could also be achieved with Photinia Red Robin trees suitably shaped. The red foliage in spring would be something to behold! “For health reasons” is something I don’t like to read about very much, but having to sit about mending a broken wrist for six weeks has set me to thinking. My body is telling me that the fast lane is a little too fast nowadays, and I should do something about it. It would seem my shelf life is looking “interesting”, so I have decided that it is better to remove myself from that shelf, rather than drop off it altogether, when I may not have any say in the matter. So after Easter Monday, I will be retired from The 1/4 Acre Store. My place has been filled with Duncan, a man who has worked in the nursery industry for many years, propagating, growing, shaping and selling plants. We are delighted to have him with us. Duncan has created two interesting gardens in the Nelson region. He enjoys growing unusual plants and things that are not all that easy to grow. So Duncan, Christine and Arlene will look after you and your gardening needs. And as for me, well I will pay frequent visits to see how everyone is getting along and we can still chat via this page every fortnight. You could also email me at jmr618@gmail.com. I would love to hear from you.

Celebrating 50 Years! Nelson Branch - Vintage Car Club NZ 1964 - 2014

Above: Jim and Kyra Wareing with their 1913 Vauxhall Princeton Tourer. Right: Dennis King, first chairman of Nelson Branch Vintage Car Club, driving in the 1964 inaugural Rally.

Family Day - 13 April A&P Showgrounds Richmond The Nelson Vintage Car Club will be celebrating 50 fabulous years with a Heritage Rally weekend beginning on Friday, April 11. Vintage Car Club members from all over New Zealand will be arriving with their cars to take part in the event and help celebrate this impressive milestone. Fifty-five will then go on tour from Richmond to Blenheim, St Arnaud, Murchison, Maruia, Reefton, Westport and finally to Greymouth, where they will meet with the South Island members for the national Easter Rally. The 50 year Heritage Rally is going to be well supported with 120 entries for the weekend and cars coming from the North Island and the lower part of the South Island. Of the 35 vintage car club branches throughout the country, 15 of them will be represented next weekend. Jim Wareing, Secretary of the Heritage Rally and Tour Committee, expressed the gratitude of the Nelson Vintage Car Club for the significant support from Nelson Building Society. “The Vintage Car Club are very grateful to their major sponsor NBS who

contribute tremendously to the club and have helped immensely with the successful planning of their 50 year Heritage Rally and Tour.” Jim said. While the Saturday will be a memorable day for the club members, Sunday is the perfect opportunity to come and see the beauty of these vintage cars up close and personal. The Nelson Vintage Car Club have taken over the A&P show grounds for the day and will be hosting a public open day, including a range of interesting displays and demonstrations like their Gymkhana events. Although they can’t say exactly what form the Gymkhana will take, John Hurley, a founding member of the Nelson Branch and enthusiastic contributor to the organizing committee, says that there will be three separate, timed activities performed on the grass strip in front of the main grandstand and are tricky little activities to test the driver, such as changing a tyre, backing into a shed, driving through a maze or having to put a letter in the mail box while driving past.

Celebrating 50 Years! Nelson Branch - Vintage Car Club NZ 1964 - 2014

has since ridden it to countless rallies around New Zealand. His brother Dennis King, who passed away several years ago, was the first Chairman of the Nelson Vintage Car Club. Lou McDowell will be bringing his 1911 Overland, Model 46, which is one of the most spectacular cars that the Nelson Vintage Car Club have. It took him four-and-a half years to fully restore the car which he bought from Warwick St in Richmond. Although it was pretty much complete, there were odd pieces that he needed to find and a lot of stuff had to be rebuilt, such as the wheels. Tyres had to be imported and a lot of brass work re-cast, but Lou managed to take the rusty bits that were originally his car and turn them into a masterpiece of motor vehicle history. As far as he knows it is the only one of its kind in New Zealand and, according to records, one of six still surviving in the world. Originally Nelson members belonged to the Canterbury branch but with so

much interest and 35 members in Nelson, it was decided to form a separate branch in 1964. The benefits of the Nelson Vintage Car Club are numerous for car enthusiasts. Companionship and friendships with monthly social gatherings. You also receive a monthly newsletter and bi – monthly magazines, discounted insurance through Vero, and meet people throughout New Zealand and join in the VCC Rallies at other branches. “We joined when we were going to retire and haven’t looked back,” says Jim and Kyra. “The friendship and things we have experienced have been incredible, we have had a ball and of course you get access to technical ability. If we want some help or technical assistance or access to parts, there’s plenty of help within the club or branch, it’s invaluable.” If you would like to know more about how to join the club please call Kevin Mercer, Chairman, on 541 8112 or visit our website www. nelsonvcc.org.nz

Nelson and Stoke chase first win Galbraith Nelson won’t need reminding of the importance this weekend holds. Pitted against Accessman Stoke, this Saturday’s fixture should give one side their first win of the season. Now into round four of the Car Company division one competition, both Nelson and Stoke are yet to register a win. Nelson lost 33-18 to Wanderers on Saturday while Stoke were beaten in the final minute courtesy of one kick from Waimea Old Boys reserve Kristian HallSmith. Nelson co-coach Kade Heke says the performance against Wanderers was the best so far this season, but he’s well aware that Stoke will be up for this Saturday’s match just like his team will. “No doubt both teams will be up for the win and trying to get something out of this match,” he

Victory Phoenix Viking also got up for a big win over the Tahunanui Tigers, 36-14.

FC Nelson has started the 2014 football season where is finished last year – in top position. The defending champions shocked favourites Richmond Athletic 3-1 at Jubilee Park on Saturday, the opening day of the local football season. FC Nelson went ahead early after a mistake in the Richmond defence was pounced on by Derryn French and the striker didn't miss, despite the tight angle. Richmond piled on enormous pressure as the half wore on but FC Nelson held on to the lead at half time. In the second half the visitors again made the most of their opportunities to score another two goals against a Richmond side that was frustrated by several shots that hit the posts and missed their goal keeper, who left the field at half time due to injury. FC Nelson coach Francis Miccio says the team only came together the night before and he was thrilled with the result. “Richmond played a lot of really good football but we stuck with our structure and formation and hit them on the counter a couple of times. It was a great result for us.” FC Nelson's other goals were scored by Reece Thomas and Nick Goodey. In other results, Nelson College also kick-started their season with a solid 2-0 win over Wakefield at Broads, while Nelson Suburbs travelled to Blenheim to beat Marlborough Mariners 2-1.

Drag season comes to a close The day’s fastest time and speed might have gone to North Island’s Adrian Rivers, but it was the South Island drivers who were victorious in the inter-island drag racing challenge in Motueka over the weekend. The final Nelson Drag Racing Association meet of the season was dubbed North versus South, and it was Adrian Rivers who clocked the fastest time of

7.1 seconds. Adrian scorched down the runway track in 191.23 mph to set the day’s quickest speed. But even his efforts weren’t enough to take the overall team title, with the South Island winning 7-5 to grab hold of the Keith Whiting Memorial Trophy. The next drag race won’t be until November when the 2014/15 calendar comes along.

Welcoming Rhonda Doole to the team Tim Dunnill and Nick Tilly, owners of Harvey World Travel Richmond, and employee Vicky McLean are delighted to announce that Rhonda Doole is joining them. Tim says that after three years he’s got to the point where they simply ‘have’ to take on more staff to keep up with demand. “The other day I was on the phone to a client, I had 3 clients waiting to see me, Vicky was busy with her own clients, and the phone was going mad with other people calling.” So finding another consultant with a similar outlook, sense of humour, a personal passion for travel along with an extensive work history in the travel industry to join the team has been a real bonus. In one way or another, Rhonda has worked in travel virtually her entire working life. Rhonda quickly and easily rattles off an impressively long list of places she’s been on in her travels, including a brand new hotel in Africa which turned out to be so new they hadn’t actually installed the glass in the windows. On that long list were Africa, Australia, various Pacific islands including Lord Howe and Norfolk islands, much of Europe and parts of the USA. Asked for her favourites, Rhonda quickly came up with Dubrovnik, the old city with its orange tiled roofs, the blues and greens of the

Adriatic Sea, and the sparkling white rocks of the coastline are special memories from a visit many years ago. Lucky Rhonda is heading back there for a revisit very soon; she’ll be sailing down the Croatian coast in a large catamaran with husband Phil and some close friends in May/June just a month after starting at Harvey World Travel Richmond. Tim says he’s calling Rhonda’s first four weeks in the office ‘play month’ – it will allow Rhonda the chance to get in to ‘play’ with the store’s systems and processes. The arrangement gives Rhonda the opportunity “to get to know how Vicky and I work”. When asked what makes her successful, Rhonda is quick to acknowledge that no-one can be an expert on everything: “I think my secret is knowing where to look for ‘solutions’ that best fit clients’ needs. I’m good at doing the research on products or destinations I’m not familiar with”. Tim says that this is precisely what he was looking for in a new employee; he puts a huge part of the business’s success down to taking the time to discover client needs, and then totally focussing on delivering to those needs. Rhonda starts at Harvey World Travel Richmond on 7 April before jetting away to Europe on 9 May for seven weeks. Contact Rhonda, at Rhonda.doole@harveyworld.co.nz Business Update. Adv.

Proud supporters of Nelson Netball

It is hard to believe that another season is all but upon us. Clubs throughout Nelson have had numerous trials and by all accounts they have settled on their rosters for 2014. The college teams are yet to finalise their teams as they wait for summer sporting commitments to be completed. For anyone who wants to get on the court this season and is perhaps new to the area, or has been unable to trial, the first port of call should be the Nelson Netball Centre website www.nelsonnet ball.co.nz go to the club contact page to make your enquiry. The season tips off with the Geraldine Hodgson Tournament which is to be held at the Saxton Courts on Saturday and Sunday 12 - 13 April. The tournament is a great opportunity for coaches to try combinations and generally use the time on court to gel their team. Often it is the final “trial” for college teams if they have chosen to run a squad before naming their school’s elite team. This year the GH Tournament (as the tournament is fondly known, named so for Nelson Netball’s

Jacks OPD after winning the 2013 Nelson Premier Netball competition for the second year running. Patron Geraldine Hodgson) will be played over five grades. The A grade which is generally made up of Premier teams has only four entries – Jacks OPD, Prices Pharmacy A, Prices Pharmacy Black and Central Men (from Blenheim). With only three Nelson Premier teams competing it has been decided to play a round robin on Sunday only. The games will be of 4 x 10 minute quarters as opposed to the two twelve minute halves for the other

grades. The B grade will play in two pools of five and will play a round robin on Saturday, going into crossovers on Sunday. The C Grade will be run as B grade however there will be only four in each pool. The D and E Grades will also play a round robin on Saturday before combining for playoffs on Sunday. The first round will begin at 930am and play will continue through until 3pm.

Nelson Netball

While the Saxton Stadium is unavailable for this year’s tournament, players, officials and supporters alike are conscious of the fact that the only play we had inside the stadium last season, was the GH Tournament, as only virtually minutes after the conclusion the flood occurred. There have been many changes in and around Nelson Netball during the “off season” as the Board prepared to put their strategic review in place. The key appointment of the process was the appointment of the Nelson Netball Centre Manager – Chelsea Routhan who took up her challenge at the end of January and has been firing on all cylinders since. Chelsea has an abundance of drive and enthusiasm and welcomes any contact from the netball public. Nelson Netball’s website is undergoing some changes and we look forward to a newer, more user friendly site in the very near future. So while it is in the ‘work in progress’ stage, please be patient, it will be well worth the wait. In a remit passed at the Annual General Meeting it was decided

that the Board would consist of four elected members and three appointed members. Elected members Jane Andrew, Carol Cook, Julie McGrath and Jenny Mills have been joined by Julie Baxendine, Steve Mitchell and Andy Vincent. The new chairman will be elected at the first new Board Meeting on 15 April. Nelson Netball is very excited to introduce the innovative new junior netball programme for boys and girls in Years 1 – 3. Last year, 14 netball centres throughout the country piloted changes to the junior netball programme with great success. The focus on the programme is exploring the game and the development of fundamental movement and ball skills. The new programme will replace the previous Fun Ferns and is schedules to run on Tuesdays from 3.45pm to 4.30pm at Saxton Stadium from 20 May. There is a $25 charge per person for the 11 week programme. Individuals do not need to be in a team as they will be put into teams each week. There will be a Future Fern Netball School Holiday Programme

35 31

2014 for Year 4 – 6 netballers which will be held at Saxton Stadium Monday 28 to Wednesday 30 April. The cost is $100 for the three days and players will receive a t-shirt and drink bottle. Registrations close Monday 14 April with Chelsea.

Saxton Boot Camp

($100 for 8 week course)

The future looks bright for local netball with strong numbers of school teams playing each week from the youngsters in the primary school grades right through to premier level.
