Value of our houses up 5.5% Home owners in Richmond, Mapua, Brightwater and Wakefield could face the biggest rates increases next year after the Tasman district’s latest three-yearly revaluations showed residential properties rose an average of 5.5 per cent, with Richmond properties increasing 6.9 per cent. The figures released last week show that the average house capital value in the district is now $418,400, with Richmond houses averaging $438,000 and Murchison houses $186,500. Farming properties increased by

an average of 4.7 per cent with horticulture blocks leading the way with an average increase of 9.6 per cent. The district’s 641 commercial properties increased by 1.9 percent to $1.098 million while the 397 industrial properties rose 2.1 per cent to $1.191million. Forestry blocks increased 4.8 per cent to an average of $840,000. However, council corporate services manager, Mike Drummond, stresses there is no direct relationship between revaluations

and changes to next year’s rates. Houses in the larger urban settlements like Richmond are likely to face higher rates increases only because their values increased more than other properties. “A revaluation of the district does not increase or decrease the council’s total rating income,” Mike says. “What it can change is the proportion of total council rates per property.” Mike says rates also affected by uniform charges such as the Uniform Annual Gen-

eral Charge or the District Facilities Rate which are set charges and independent of changes in revaluations. He says valuations will be used for rating from July 1 next year and it is important for residents to ensure they are satisfied with the valuation. “If you don’t agree with your revaluation you can either go to the Quotable Value website (ratingvalues.co.nz) or talk to them directly to make an objection.” Property owners have until February 9 next year to object to their revaluations.

Miracle baby heading home

Andrew Board Baby Jack Frost is on track to go home this week, four months after he was born but just days before his original due date, December 21. Jack’s mum, Vicki Frost, went into labour at just 23 weeks and she was told by doctors at Nelson Hospital that they wouldn’t try to save her baby, he was just too young. But four harrowing months on Jack is healthy, happy and ready to go home for the first time. The incredible journey that Jack, along with Vicki and her husband Marty, have been on has not only touched their friends and family, but the 3000 Facebook followers that Vicki’s page has attracted. She says writing the daily updates of Jack’s battle has

Miracle baby, Jack Frost, heading home FROM PAGE 1 “kept me sane”. The story starts around three years ago when Vicki – a local school teacher in her mid-30s – was told she was going through menopause and the chances of her getting pregnant were around 2 to 5 per cent. A week after she found out she was pregnant, in March this year, Vicki started bleeding heavily. She went in for a scan and her uterus was full of blood. Doctors told her that she probably wouldn’t be able to carry the baby. She says those weeks were “horrible” she was constantly sick but

the bleeding slowed and by week 13 the doctors said she was back on track. “But I felt that it wasn’t,” she says. “I felt things weren’t going well at all.” At 21 weeks, while at a school sports tournament, Vicki’s waters broke, so she was rushed to hospital. The very next day she got the flu and was in isolation for ten days at Nelson Hospital. There she was repeatedly told that the baby wouldn’t survive if she gave birth before it had reached 24 weeks. “So it was pretty awful, I was so sick and trying to deal with this. We didn’t think we’d have a live baby then because it was another two or three weeks

Jack Frost just a few days old in Wellington Hospital. before we got to the 24 week mark.” At exactly 23 weeks Vicki went into labour and they prepared to say goodbye to their baby. Then a call was made to Wellington Hospital specialists and they were prepared to take the Frosts – if they wanted to go. “So it was completely surreal how everything changed. We really, really didn’t want a Open until 3pm Saturdays baby that had to fight for 277 High St, Motueka the first few months or years of his life, because it’s not fair on the baby.

much as we desperately wanted a baby, we didn’t want it at the expense of a baby having a miserable life.” They decided to give it a go and Vicki was given drugs to suppress the labour. Two days later, on August 26, she gave birth to Jack, all 712 grams of him. Jack was rushed away with the doctors and his father, who was on hand to make a decision of whether to stop trying to save him if he was struggling too much. Vicki says even then she felt there was very little chance of Jack surviving. But he kept fighting and fighting. Even after five weeks of everything going well, Vicki says nurses were still telling her not to get her hopes up. “I cried a lot, I spent a lot of time in tears. It was my only chance to have a baby and I really wanted to do what I could, but not at the expense of a

miserable life.” Jack has had plenty of obstacles to overcome, including complications with his stomach, eyes, veins and lungs. But he’s come through them all and the prognosis for a normal, healthy life is excellent. Vicki says through the whole ordeal, her blog on her Facebook page has been a surprising source of strength. “The funny thing is I’m not big on Facebook and definitely not a public person, but we were getting so many text messages I decided to make a page with updates to keep people informed without having to constantly send text messages. “It was really just to let friends and family know and it just took off. It was really bizarre.” Vicki is hoping this week to write her favourite post yet. A picture of her young family in their own home for the first time.

Retailers slow to use 0800 TREE TRIM free parking service Residents living close to Richmond’s central business area are becoming frustrated with cars being parked outside their homes, despite a new initiative by the Richmond Mall and Richmond Unlimited to ease the problem. Car parks are always at a premium when people start flocking into the town for Christmas shopping and the Richmond Mall’s retailers move out of the mall car park to free-up spaces for customers. Although the mall and Richmond Unlimited are providing free parking in the A & P Showgrounds and hiring a shuttle service to provide free transport into Richmond, most retailers are still parking on nearby streets, and Croucher St resident Ron Burt says he’s had enough. “The street is full which is really inconvenient for people living here,” Ron says. “We have a driveway for our car but when we have visitors they have to park way down the street and walk. “I’m also one of the volunteers who drives the St John shuttle and a couple of weeks ago I had to double park when we picked up a lady in Croucher St. The Richmond Mall and Richmond Unlimited are trying to be good neighbours by putting

on the parking and shuttle, but the retailers aren’t playing ball.” Richmond Unlimited chairman, Brent Cheyne, says it’s disappointing that the showgrounds car park and shuttle are not being fully utilised. However, Brent is hopeful that retailers will start using the showgrounds car park and shuttle as the Christmas rush puts more pressure on car parks. “It has come at a cost to us and the mall, so I hope the uptake improves,” Brent says. “We wanted there to be parking available to attract more customers here without frustrating the residents.” Mall manager Belinda de Clercq is also optimistic that more retailers will start to use the free service and says they “definitely plan to do it again next year”.

da says 54 cars were parked in the showgrounds last Saturday. “It’s a great initiative but it’s just going to take time for people to get used to it,” she says. Shapers manager, Marie Nailer, says it’s important for customers to have access to parking close to the shops, although she sympathised with staff who “need a car park as well”. Marie says she lives close to Richmond and lets her staff “park at my house”. Farmers Richmond manager, Duncan Allen says they informed their staff about the free parking and shuttle and encouraged them to use it but could not make it compulsory. The shuttle service runs constantly between 7am and 9am in the morning and 5pm to 6.30pm in the evening and will finish on December 24.

Drunk mums driving with children, or to pick up children, have shocked Nelson police over the past week. Ten drivers were caught over the drink driving limit over the weekend during a police operation, but worryingly, three of the highest levels of intoxication came from mums, says Inspector Jenni Richardson. “Our highest reading came from a pregnant woman with passengers in her car, and the third highest reading was a woman with a young baby in the back seat. You have to wonder how long it is until an innocent life is lost.” A third woman recorded a breath alcohol reading of 440mcg of alcohol per litre of breath, while on her way to pick up a child. The limit is 250 and the pregnant woman registered 880 when tested by police. Jenni says police were expecting to see an increase in the number of drivers testing in the 250-400 range after a recent law change dropped the legal limit from 400 to 250. “But what we’re seeing is breath alcohol readings in the 800s and 900s, which is outrageous,” she says. Just three weeks ago, police publicly told the Waimea Weekly that they would come down hard on drunk drivers this holiday period, but the message seems to have gone unnoticed, says Jenni. She says there would be an increased police presence on the roads in the lead up to Christmas and through the holiday period, with more checkpoints planned this week.

Motorcyclists collect toys for local kids More than 200 motorcyclists took to the roads of Richmond, Stoke and Nelson last Saturday for the annual Ulysses Nelson Toy Run. Motorcyclists from the Top of the South and the West Coast decorated themselves with Santa hats and tinsel and loaded their bikes and scooters with various gifts.

Celebrating its 29th year, the ride, which started in Cambridge St, Richmond, saw modern and classic bikes parading through the streets and finishing at the Trafalgar Centre. The riders collected around 300 new toys that will be donated to the Salvation Army, which will distribute them to children in need.

Couple give up land for mountainbikers

A new network of mountainbike tracks is being built in a private forestry block in the Richmond Hills, continuing a tradition of the landowners opening up their property to the public. The Mountainbike Trails Trust started work on the first track in Rick and Sarah Griffin’s Silvan Hills forest above Champion Rd, earlier this month. Rick and Sarah have been allowing recreational access through Silvan Hills for “the last 20 years” and now have reached a formal agreement with the trust to establish a network of mountainbike tracks on their property. Although trust member Alan Eskrick says the Griffins’ offer is “very generous”, Rick insists they are just continuing a community-minded tradition started by the land’s former owner, Don Heslop. “Don was a very generous man and let people go through the property. He even put a walking track in there with signposts for everyone to use, so we are just following his example. “I used to ride horses and run up there when I was young and that’s how I became interested in the property. Now we are delighted that the land will continue to be used in the same way.” Alan says the Silvan Hills trails will fit well with the trusts’ objective of professionally building and managing tracks to make the Nelson-Tasman region a national and international destination for mountainbikers. They are also planning some downhill tracks and eventually hope to link them to the mountainbike tracks in the Kingsland Forest above Richmond. “We marked out the track two weeks ago and essentially had the guys waiting with their dig-

Trust member, Andrew Spittal of Ching Contracting, and Gary Donaldson of Donaldson Civil, have been working on the new track which should be finished just after the New Year. “These guys are hoping to get the whole lot done in four or five months. I don’t know how we’d do it without them.” Another contractor, Malcolm Edridge of Mike Edridge Contracting, as well as an army of volunteers, have also been working on a new network of mountainbike tracks near St Arnaud.

New vehicle for community patrol

Simon Bloomberg

The Richmond District Community Patrol will be hard to miss after they purchased a new, sign-written patrol vehicle to help keep our streets safer. Patrol coordinator, Mike Gill says the car had been owned by the Papakura Community Patrol and was equipped with an on-board camera and flashing lights. It has been sign-written to clearly identify the vehicle and also to display the patrol’s sponsors. “It was such a good buy we had to put in a bid for it,” Mike says. “We were using a Tasman District Council car and put signage on that, but it didn’t stand out - this

will give us a more recognisable presence on the streets.” Mike says the group, which has 25 volunteers, goes on patrol on Friday and Saturday nights and during the day in the school holidays when they monitor school grounds and carparks. The group is sponsored by the TDC which provides fuel while Mt Campbell Communications installed the car’s police radio at no cost. Knapps Lawyers, Shapers and Endurance Spraying all made donations to the group, while AMI donated comprehensive insurance cover. Anyone interested in joining the group can contact Mike on 0272864157 or call into the Richmond Police Station.

Grey Power president wants to continue

Facing a vote of no-confidence in his presidency of Nelson Grey Power, Neville Male says the “nasty character assassination” has shocked him. This Sunday, December 21, members of Nelson Grey Power will vote on whether to keep the former Sport Tasman boss on, or turf him out. Neville says he wants to fight for his job because he believes he is still the best man to lead the organization into a more modern future. “I have deliberately refrained from making any public comment to date, but an unauthorised letter this week from the vice president [Kevin Gardiner] sacking the association’s elected secretary is the last straw,” he says. “In regard to the claims about me, I see them frankly as part of a ‘character assassination campaign’, designed to stop the progress of the restructure programme and to overturn a unanimous decision to terminate a position which the Association Management Committee unanimously agreed was now no longer appropriate.” That role is that of the current manager, Pat Carrick, who has been a strong member of a group keen to see the back of Neville. Neville says over the past few months he’s been accused of putting Grey Power funds into his own bank account, and has had a committee member call an applicant for a new job to tell her not to take it. “I have been asked by members and others why do I want to continue in the role while all of these nasty things are going on. My response has been that I believe Nelson Grey Power can do great things in the future for its members and the wider community, but it must change its image and modernize before that can happen.” Earlier this month the executive committee passed a vote of no-confidence in Neville, prompting the full member vote this Sunday. The vote of no-confidence in Neville is at the Suburban Club on Sunday, December 21, at 2pm. insurance sPecialist

The Children’s Christmas party was enjoyed by all who came on Sunday afternoon. There were 43 children eagerly waiting to receive their presents from Santa and his Elves.

From the President’s desk... On behalf of the board, the vice-president, the executive, management and staff I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.

Rev Allan Wasley, Vicar Ph 541 8883

Many of us pass through the Richmond Mall several times during this run up time to Christmas. There is a special atmosphere there and around the other shops and meeting places of our district that we don’t find at any other time of the year. It is not only that shops, offices and other spaces are draped with colourful and sparkly decorations that makes the feeling so different. It is also the sense of excitement, of joy, of goodwill. Perhaps you have the thought, as I do, that it is a pity that such goodwill does not always extend to the rest of the year! I don’t mean that we should keep Christmas decorations up all the time – that would rather defeat their purpose. Rather it is the effort that many make to be especially sociable, especially joyful and especially generous that would surely translate well to the other eleven or so months of the year! Christians trace this effort to be peaceable and to show goodwill to all to the birth of Jesus as

Jesus is the greatest gift

outlined in the bible. Yet the birth of Jesus was only the beginning of his mission here on earth. This mission was to show in word and action the drawing near of God to all humanity. Christians often refer to this as God’s Kingdom breaking in to our human society. Living in God’s Kingdom is marked by the joy, generosity and sociability that we find especially at this Christmas time. Perhaps we all would do well to make special efforts to extend this goodwill to all into the New Year. Following the example of Jesus, this would extend particularly towards those in our community and society who are struggling. May the peace, joy and comfort of this Christmas season then be in our hearts and homes – not only now, but always! Fr David Gruschow Parish Priest, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish

Wakefield Feathers Trophy The Wakefield Feathers trophy is played for at the annual New Year Invitational Tournament, with teams entering from around the region and afar. This year it will be held over two days from January 1. The trophy was first contested at Wakefield in 1912, and for a time, at an annual triples tournament. It’s thought to be the cap feathers from soldiers in the second Boer War, the first war in which NZ soldiers served overseas. After lapsing for some years, the feathers and their history were rediscovered and the trophy restored by Larry Short. The feathers were remounted in a new trophy, one set being reconstructed using photographic and computer techniques. The trophy was awarded to the winners of the club’s centennial tournament in February 2011 and at an annual invitational triples tournament to mirror the original concept. Call into the club if you are around over New Year, the club is located just across the road from the craft fair.

Community Bowls Community bowls will be recommencing on Thursday, February 5, 2015 from 6pm until 8pm for a further 4 weeks. Grants Corner to Corner will be included on February 19 and 26. All previous and any new players are welcome to come along for a fun time. Make a team with family and friends or you can be placed into teams on the day. Adults will be $5 while children are free and a sausage sizzle and drinks will be available. Contact Tony on 541 8316 for further details. Craft Fair Wakefield’s thirty-seventh annual craft fair is coming up next year. The fair will take place on Friday, January 2, 2015 on the Wakefield Village Green and in the Wakefield Hall. With over 60 stall available, and plenty of food and drink, come and check out the talents of Wakefield’s crafters. The fair runs from 8:30am until 3:30pm.

And last week, Finn’s sport’s travel fund for the next Oceania’s received a timely $1000 boost when he received McGlashen Pharmacy Young Achiever Scholarship. “It’s a huge help winning the scholarship,” Finn says. “It’s rare to get funding outside the sport so I’d really like to thank Andrew.” Andrew says Finn was a standout applicant for the $1000 scholarship, which is open to students aged 16 and under across Nelson-Tasman who excel in sports, music, outside interests or academically. Finn has been a judoka at the Nelson Judo Club for eight years and has also performed well academically. “It’s difficult for young athletes to fundraise, especially in miJudo exponent, Finn Sweetman, shows Andrew McGlashen how nority sports like judo,” Anit’s done after being awarded the McGlashen Pharmacy Young drew says. “I hope this helps him achieve his goals.” Achiever Scholarship.

Low milk prices hurt some local farmers Monique Bergman

Farmers in our region will face challenges over the next 12 to 18 months following Fonterra’s announcement of the reduced farm gate milk price for the 2014/15 season. The price has been dropped from the previous forecast of $5.30 per kg of milk solids to $4.70 per kg of milk solids. The drop can be attributed to global

milk supply remaining greater than demand which has led to lower world milk prices. This represents an estimated $6.1 billion decrease for the New Zealand dairy industry since the high of the 2013/14 season. The pressure on Nelson-Tasman farm budgets will be great and local dairy farmer, Julian Raine, says he is not sure how any farmers can make money from

the reduced price. “We are naturally concerned that we won’t make money at that level but we are also aware that dairy prices can go up wildly like last season but also drop down too. Things are competitive, stocks are high in China plus Europe and the USA are competing. We are conscious of the decisions we make now, however so far, banks have been supportive,” says Julian.

New Year’s resolutions

How to get your finances in shape and stick to it!  Track your spending. Check your receipts and statements. Find where your money is going.  Categorise your spending- e.g. food, takeaways, clothing, car costs.  Tally up each category for the week/month/year. You might find some surprises.  Identify areas where you can trim the fat- no need to totally cut out something you love. Trimming a little from many areas can free up a lot of cash.  Use the freed up cash for your goals (e.g. paying debt, saving for house).  You can make a plan for your money at Sorted.org.nz.  Keep it realistic. Don’t forget the fun stuff!  Always remember the reasons/goals that are motivating you to make the changes.  Review your budget regularly, things change.

Waimea’s Get2Go team finishes second at nationals

Waimea College showed plenty of initiative, teamwork and speed, as well as some good old fashioned determination, to finish second in the national Get2Go Challenge final at Hillary Outdoors on Great Barrier Island last week. Waimea’s initiative and team work paid dividends on the first two days of the team’s outdoor adventure event when it finished second after the problem solving section. The team then showed speed, and when the going got tough, plenty of courage and determination, during the two-day expedition and multisport race on the final day. “The team did really well,” coach and teacher, Marcus Swain says. “They stepped up big-time and showed a lot of courage. “We had one of the girls throwing up before the first day of the expedition. She was quite sick but we got her to the start and she hung in there all day. “The next day, Maggie was white as a sheet and we thought she’d have to pull out but she kept going. The rest of the team towed her around and she gutsed it out - they were all very determined.” Marcus says Waimea’s Mikayla Lowry, Theo Smith, Maggie McLean, Brooke Robertson, Mac Karalus, Jaimie Pres-

Photo: Kate Weston. tidge, Cameron Jones and Harry Talbot laid the foundation for their secondplacing by showing good teamwork in the problem-solving challenges. They also excelled in the kayaking which was a big part of the two-day expedition section. Team member, Mac, says the toughest challenge was the second day of the expedition race when they covered about

26 kilometres on land and sea in seven and a half hours. “We’d already done six and half hours on the first day of the expedition race so we were all really tired,” Mac says. Waimea finished on 2144 points, just 233 behind winners Trident from Whakatane. Twelve teams of eight, year 9 and 10 students from schools around New Zealand competed in the final.

New competition for female cricketers A bid to get more girls playing cricket in Nelson is off to a promising start, with more than 40 taking part in a new competition. Nelson Cricket Association eventually hopes to get up to 200 girls aged 6-13 turning up on Thursday evenings at Greenmeadows during the summer to play and be coached, as it seeks to build on a renewed interest in the game among local women. The free initiative is being partly funded by a $3064 KiwiSport grant from Sport Tasman, with Nelson Cricket picking up the other half of the cost. Nelson Cricket community cricket coordinator, Jon Routhan, says the girls play a modified game called Quikhit. Players are divided evenly into teams and bat in pairs for three overs, losing three runs every time they get out.

There is also a 10 metre exclusion zone around the pitch where fielders are not allowed until a batswoman hits the ball. This teaches the girls about running between the wickets and the importance of fielders walking in with the bowler, he says. Those waiting to bat or play receive coaching, as the aim is to teach them about the game as well as having fun. Jon says the competition, which started last month, has received a great response. “The girls love their cricket and play hard every time, and parents are stoked to have cricket readily available for their girls.’’ Some who had never picked up a cricket bat before had excellent hand-eye coordination, while their teachers are keen for them to give someone new a go, he says. The aim is to upskill girls so more could play Saturday club cricket and go onto higher honours.

Nelson, Christmas and berries are a match made in heaven, so a trip to Tasman Bay Berries should be top priority this summer. The Tasman Bay Berry Company is a family business, passionate about sharing the delights of summer with the public. Their shop on McShane Rd has expanded even further since last year and owners Maree and Glen Holland are getting ready for the busy holiday period, introducing some new solutions to keep queuing to a minimum. Designated stalls catering to customers wishing to pick their own or pick up online orders will mean the shop is freed up to deal with those purchasing ice creams or fresh, pre-packaged berries, and their car park attendant will help direct traffic so everyone can come in and enjoy what Tasman Bay Berries has to offer. The expansion of the business has also led to a new animal enclosure behind the pack house. Children will love Muz and Cuz, the piglets, Lily and Lola the lambs and

their family of goats. Maree says the idea of Tasman Bay Berries is to be a destination for families who can come out and experience the country atmosphere of picking their own berries, relaxing at a picnic table under the shade sails with a real fruit ice cream, and seeing and feeding the animals. Tasman Bay Berries offers a casual and rustic feel, perfect for a morning or afternoon of collecting your own black raspberries, raspberries or boysenberries. Strawberries are also available from the shop, along with frozen berries, ice creams and 100 per cent natural, homemade jams, created with Tasman Bay Berries quality fruit. With the shop staying open until the end of January, make the most of Tasman Bay Berries. Either call in and see them on 37 McShane Rd, they’re open every day from 9am until 5:30pm, or visit their website at www.tasmanbayberries.co.nz to preorder your berries. Business Update. Adv.

Nelson Girls Under 15 Rep Cricket Nelson Girls Under 15 Rep Cricket Team is getting ready to take on the all important Central Districts Under 15 Girls Tournament. With the cricket season having started in November, the girls have been playing in a combined competition for one of two clubs, Nelson College/Nelson Prep or the Nelson combined team, made up of players from the remaining schools including Waimea and Garin. Their selection for the Under 15 rep team a month ago has given them plenty of time to practice and create that all important team bond that will, hopefully, produce some successful results during the tournament. “I think there’s some really, really talented players,” says Nelson Crickets Jon Routhan. “It’s quite young, so there’s probably at least half of the team who will still be under 15 next year which is really exciting, but because it’s our first time going up there, it’s hard to put a finger on how results will go, but I think that there’s some really talented

All Fight 4 Victory bouts confirmed The final two fights for next year’s Fight 4 Victory have been confirmed. All ten bouts have now been announced and the latest will see two engineers square up against each other, while Stonewood Homes co-owner Rhys Horncastle will battle Paul Hammett, brother of former All Black, Mark Hammett. Engineer Karl Griffith, of Talley’s, will fight Anchor Engineering owner Heath Botica. All four men say they’ve never boxed before but Paul admitted to a few fights “without gloves”. Victory Boxing Charitable Trust programme director, Paul Hampton, says he’s delighted with the card. “We’re really excited to get all ten fights, it’s been a long process but now we can start training and really get into it.” The card now has lawyers, chefs, hairdressers, a police officer, an army officer, engineers, a city councillor, a newspaper editor and business owners. Paul says the range of people who have put their names forward has been a real highlight. “We’re really happy with the names that have come forward and with the range of backgrounds, and all of them are there to support the programme.” Corporate tables for the event on April 4 are sold out and general admission tickets will go on sale in late January.
