Air New Zealand passengers flying from Auckland to Nelson on Sunday were left “fuming” after being told the flight was cancelled because of bad weather, only to see other planes fly out without a problem. Several passengers on flight 5253 contacted Waimea Weekly about the experience that left them feeling “ignored” and “frustrated”. Many of the passengers had flown to Auckland for The Eagles concert, while others were travelling back to Nelson after a holiday abroad. Passengers say they were originally told the flight was delayed due to an “engineering fault” but the reason was later changed to poor weather in Auckland. That was despite all but one other flight departing Auckland without a problem. The stranded passengers were later flown to Wellington, not Nelson, because there was no accom-

resulted in an adaption to the course and the second saw a maximum of 1400 participants. Pip says that around 1000 people entered into the fun run on Sunday, a number they put down to the fact they had less than a month to inform people of the changes. Tasman district councillor Judene Edgar was amongst those getting stuck into the Muddy Buddy, having taken part in every event since it was started. “It’s family fun, you’ve got to let your hair down, you’ve got to have a bit of fun and laugh at yourself and being covered in mud is a great way to do that. As much

as it’s hard, I just do love scrambling through the mud, it’s a good workout and I just love the costumes and the way people get into it. I think they just did a fantastic job and I’ll be back.” With the new resource consent, the school will be able to host the event for the next 10 years, using the same course people enjoyed on Sunday. A final total hasn’t been worked out yet but the school hopes to have raised around $12,000. That will go towards the finishing touches on their new playground upgrade, some landscaping around the school grounds and subsidising the professional sports shirts for the students.

We were sitting there being told that the plane couldn’t take off because of bad weather and we watched all these other planes leave with no problem. We were looking out the window at a light drizzle and that was hard to accept.” She says the flight was cancelled after being delayed five

don’t mind the adventure of it but I felt they just wanted rid of us.” Two other passengers were returning from a holiday in Norfolk Island. Roslyn Elliot and Dale Filer say they were disappointed that their holiday had been ended in such a way. Waimea Weekly tried to get hold of Air New Zealand to respond to the criticism and ask why it could fly the passengers from Auckland to Wellington but not from Auckland to Nelson. But the airline failed to respond to all attempts, apart from a Tweet, which directed the Weekly to an email address, which went unanswered.

Billing error shocks Richmond water users Monique Bergman Reporter

Where it’s the care that counts

Our warm, sunny and friendly rest home is in the heart of Wakefield Village with a reserve on one side, the health centre on the other and the shops and cafés right at the end of the driveway.

Residents on Croucher and Chisnall streets in Richmond got a big fright when they opened their water bills this month to find they had been charged astronomical amounts. Eighty-nine properties received the inflated bills with one resident, Julian Edmonds, saying he was charged $689 for 858 days use of water over the last six months. “I nearly fell over when I opened my account,” Julian says. “It must be the most expensive water on the planet.” But fortunately the inflated water charges were the result of a billing error by the Tasman District Council which has already taken steps to rectify their mistake. “Yes, there was a billing error in the latest water billing round,” council communication’s advisor Chris Choat says.

MASSIVE BILL: Richmond resident, Julian Edmonds, is urging Tasman district residents to check their water bills after he was charged for 858 days and nine cubic metres of water on his six monthly bill. Photo: Monique Bergman. “The error was recognised last Thursday and staff did a walk around on the Friday to each of those properties putting an explanation into letterboxes.” Because there is a relatively high number of tenanted properties in the area, Chris says council has written to the landlords of each of the properties to discuss the issue and correct

the billing. “The correct bills will be issued later this week. No-one will be penalised because of the error and the payment date for this round of billing will remain April 20.” Chris says if anyone has any remaining issues about the bills, they are welcome to contact council.

Concern over Hope Hall’s earthquake risk Simon Bloomberg

The earthquake risk of the Hope Hall will be tested in the next two months after an initial seismic assessment showed that it only met 35 per cent of the new building standard. The Tasman District Council is conducting seismic testing of all its public buildings and the Hope Hall was the only one in the latest round of tests to raise some concern. Although the initial test showed that it just exceeded the required government safety rating of 34 per cent of the new building standards, council will be commissioning a detailed assessment “just to

make sure it’s safe”. Council property manager Jim Frater says the initial seismic assessments are based on building consent records and “a quick look at the building”. When the initial rating is less than or only slightly higher than the required 34 per cent, council commissions a detailed seismic assessment conducted by structural engineers to get a more accurate rating. “What we usually find is that the initial assessment is always conservative and the rating of the detailed assessment rises. But we need to make sure the buildings are safe so we will be getting engineers to look at Hope Hall to get much better information

and all exceeded the 34 per cent required by government. He also says strengthening work on the Richmond Town Hall, which was found to be earthquake prone in an earlier assessment, is expected to start soon. “Structural engineers are in high demand so we’ve had to delay the work on the Richmond Town Hall. But we have tendered the work and hope to complete it within a couple of months.” The delay means council will only spend $50-$100,000 of the $500,000 budgeted for earthquake assessment and strengthening this year. Unspent capital will be carried over to 2015-16.

Hope Hall will undergo further earthquake testing. on the structural aspects.” Jim says the Murchison Service Centre built in 1913 (67 per cent), Brightwater Hall built in 1968 (60 per cent) and Spring Grove Hall built in 1900 (50 per cent) were also assessed in the latest round of testing

TROUT EATS 21 MICE: A St Arnaud angler, Don McFadgen, got a surprise when he gutted a large trout he caught in the Wairau River recently finding 21 mice in its stomach. Don smoked the trout and shared it with his neighbour Bryce Buckland who said he didn’t enjoy the fish “because it tasted like rodent”. HAIL LOWERS PORT’S WORKLOAD: Port Nelson is expecting to handle about one million less cartons of apples than forecast due to the hail storm that damaged crops across the Tasman district in November. In Port Nelson’s six-monthly report, it stated that industry sources and the Nelson Regional Economic Development Agency indicated that about 20 per cent of the export crop may have been lost due to the hail and that will have an effect on the port’s full year financial result. GREY POWER AGM: In last week’s Waimea Weekly we incorrectly reported that the Nelson Grey Power AGM was on August 1. It is actually on April 1, in two weeks time. We apologise for the error.

Last of the harvest ready for ‘summer fare’ Monique Bergman

One of the biggest social events of the year, the popular Sprig & Fern Summer Harvest Fare, returns to Richmond this coming Friday. The street party signifies the end of summer and celebrates the harvest of the region’s hops, grapes and food. Around 25 food and beverage stalls, featuring six local wineries and Sprig & Fern beer, will be on offer. Around 4000 people attended last year’s community event and it is one of the last in the region before daylight saving ends. Major sponsor, the Sprig & Fern

Brewery has been a part of the event for a number of years and owner Tracy Banner says they are proud to be involved. “We are a big part of the Richmond community, it is such a good event and it is great to see people having something to eat and drink and catching up with friends. It is most enjoyable to be involved in it,” says Tracy. This year’s entertainment will feature local covers band, Urban, along with performer Craig Lee. There will also be something for the children with face painting, balloons and a bouncy castle from 6pm to 8pm. Organiser, Kim Quint from

Richmond Unlimited, has been working on the event for over four months and says she is looking forward to people having a good time and enjoying the music. They will also be providing the N-Bus as a free service, dropping passengers off at designated stops in Stoke, Bishopdale, Nelson and Tahunanui. It departs from the Queen St end of Sundial Square at 8pm, 9pm and 10pm. The Sprig & Fern Summer Harvest Fare is this Friday from 5.30pm to 10pm at Sundial Square, Richmond. It is a free event for the whole family.

January a record month for tourism Simon Bloomberg

The “good news” continues for the NelsonTasman tourism industry with the latest figures showing a record number of visitors stayed in commercial accommodation in the region in January. Last year, Nelson had 1.25million guest nights, which was the second-highest number since records started in 2000. And the strong performance has continued this year with the latest figures showing that January was a record month with guest nights, increasing 9.8 per cent on last year to 286,921. “The results are very pleasing

and on track with what we were expecting,” Nelson Tasman Tourism chief executive, Lynda Keene says. “I’ve been keeping my fingers crossed that the January results would produce what we secretly thought could be achieved, and they have. “I’m absolutely delighted we have hit new records of total guest nights and international guest nights since records were kept in 2000. The 2007-2008 year produced the highest total guest nights of 1,271,567 and I knew, if the feedback from operators was correct, we were going to have a great season.” Lynda says the international guest nights

SUPER YACHT ARRIVES AT PORT: News that the super yacht “The Hemisphere”, arrived in town got people talking on Nelson Live. As did the weekly rental price, a whopping US$280,000 a week. The super yacht arrived on Saturday and left again on Sunday, it can hold 12 guests and eight crew. Comments were mostly jokes along the same lines, like this from Michelle Sinclair, “OMG, I see a girl’s week coming on! I’m sure if we all put in we could rent it for a week.”

contributed a 5.5 per cent increase while domestic guest nights jumped 11.4 per cent. Nelson compared favourably with the national average increases for January of 2.5 per cent for international and 4.6 per cent for domestic guest nights. Tourists also stayed in Nelson for longer in January with the length-of-stay averaging a record 3.05 nights. Although Lynda says that’s pleasing, she remains concerned that Nelson-Tasman still experiences the biggest drop of guest nights in winter. “The region has the fourth highest lengthof-stay on an annual basis but does experience the biggest drop of guest nights in

winter. This is why it’s critical the region invests in infrastructure and marketing that will produce increased visitation during May-September.” Lynda attributed the record guest nights to a combination of factors, including the continued development of cycle tourism, associated and promotion of the region’s wineries, restaurants, arts and sports events. Lynda says Nelson Tasman Tourism’s “very selective” marketing has also helped produce positive results that either tracked or exceeded national trends, particularly in the high season.

Snapper Classic hooks a big crowd and plenty of fish Along with a whole lot of fish, this year’s Tasman Bay Snapper Classic reeled in $7228 for their chosen charity, Big Brothers Big Sisters of New Zealand. The competition had 50 teams of four competing in the bay to hook the heaviest snapper. Teams were awarded prizes based on the heaviest combination of four fish. Before the prize giving, a charity auction headed by Murray Leaning took place, with sponsors’ goods auctioned off as well as some of the fish caught that day. Event organiser Troy Dando says, along with some of the entry fee, the money would be a big benefit to the Big Brothers Big Sisters char-

ity. “It’s a great cause, helping young people out, especially those who are underprivileged and can’t get out there and do things.” The winning team with the heaviest catch was the Würth NZ team, “Wurth a Shot”, who have now won the competition three times in a row. Team member Oliver McPherson netted a single snapper weighing just over 9kg. Troy says a lot of it can just come down to luck. “There is luck and skill on the day, not all teams weighed in four fish so their team total was down. The one that got second only weighed in three

fish. Had they had a fourth fish they may have won.” Another notable catch was a kingfish weighing in around 15kg. The event was delayed a week due to the bad weather and Troy says he was glad he made that decision. He says the change in date didn’t suit some people but he also managed to get more signed up with the extra time. “We lost a few, but we also picked a few up.” He says he couldn’t have run the event and raised the money without the generosity of his sponsors, notably Simrad, Big Blue, Totally Boating, Nelson Weekly and the Speight’s Ale House.

SPCA overwhelmed by stray cats Monique Bergman The Nelson SPCA is being overwhelmed by stray cats and kittens with almost 100 now being cared for at their Waimea Rd shelter. Nelson SPCA general manager, Donna Walz says the number of cats is comparable to last year, however the difference is that no one is coming in to adopt and take them home. “Quite a few kittens have gone to new homes, which is great but it is their lovely mothers who just seem to be forgotten and left behind,” says Donna. As an incentive, the SPCA is offering free starter packs for the first 10 adult cat adoptions. The packs include, a box to transport the cats home in, litter trays and food. The process of adopting a cat or kitten involves matching the right animal with the right family and

Nayland Pools go to the dogs

WEDNESDAY 18 March 2015

Winter is coming Double glaze your home now

Andrew Board Nayland Pools set a new record for the greatest number of swimmers in a month with 13,137 people jumping into the pools in January but this Saturday it will be turned over to the dogs. The pools close to humans this Friday, March 20, but the following day it’s over to the dogs, with the complex being opened up to man’s best friend. The “Dog’s Splash” will be held on Saturday and Dave McKenzie, the manager of the pools, says dogs are invited to come along and enjoy the pools for free. “We’ll have lifeguards and tennis balls for the dogs so it should be fun.” Dave says it’s the first time they’ve done a dog’s splash but other pools around New Zealand do it and it could become a regular at Nayland as well. The dog’s splash is open from 10am to 12 noon and all sociable, registered and clean dogs are invited. Dave says this summer has been one of the best for the pools with January breaking the previous record for most number of swimming, which had stood since January 2008, with 11,781. Dave says its been a fantastic year for the facility, with plenty of sun keeping locals hungry for a cool swimming pool. “We now also hold the record for the most to an outdoor wave rave with 175 attendees, so it’s been a great summer for the facility.” Dave says the pools usually see about 32,000 people through in a season but he’s hoping for more this year. “The weather’s been the main reason for the increase but we’ve also had swimming camps from Wellington and Christchurch here which helped increase the numbers.”

With serious weather events now predicted by NIWA to be a regular occurrence, and the fence undercutting the entire Third House track, slip damage will continue and ratepayers can brace themselves for the bill.

Trolley derby: Not a great turnout. Needs reinvigorating and I don’t mean more loud and annoying announcing. Ok, they are not too bad but it is a bit intrusive. As for Mike Pero, well, it needs sponsoring and they did a good job. Doug Newton.

Noticed more tourists: Definitely noticed campervans and camping set-ups in nearly every carpark in the city. Nikole Berkett.

Grey Power: Nelson Grey Power, is a constitutional entity and, like most constitutional bodies, is run by a committee; under a written constitution, to which it is bound. Normally under such arrangements the chair is a titular position and not an executive position. In other words the president has no executive powers. It is the committee and only the committee that has the power to make and take all executive decisions. The committee does not have to seize power; it already has power. It is the chair that has no power, and therefore must be the one regarded as attempting to seize power from the committee, and not the other way around. The quorum voice of the committee is the organisation’s voice and position. It then follows that the president’s voice is the one that must be regarded as dissident. While members may constitutionally requisition a special meeting, it is still the committee who must approve,arrange, and execute that demand. Grey Power must return to being run according to proper constitutional procedure, according to Hoyle and not Male. Dan McGuire.

Celebrating 10 years helping to keep businesses on track

Based in Richmond, Business Roundup is committed to helping small businesses create and maintain efficient accounting systems. A successful business is heavily reliant upon keeping track of its finances and not all business owners have the resources, time or desire to deal with the paperwork. This is why Business Roundup has become a valuable asset for many businesses in the Nelson, Tasman and Brightwater areas, offering their expertise to help manage a number of elements from accounts and payroll to GST and tax returns. Although they offer similar services to an accountant, there are several elements that set Business

Roundup apart, the first being their focus on the progress of the business leading up to the tax return and second being their mobile service. Business Roundup was established in 2005 by director Sue Thomas. Her main reason for creating the business was to utilize her experience and help owners keep track of what was happening to their business. After 18 years working in a large corporate environment, dealing with many aspects of the business and a number of software programs, Sue is now able to bring this experience and knowledge to other business owners and their enterprises. When she noticed a need amongst small and new

businesses for guidance, services and training when it came to their finances, she began to build up her clientele until making the transition to a full time bookkeeping service. While Sue takes care of Business Roundup’s mobile support service, Liz Reeve works on the paperwork for clients who don’t have designated offices. Documents are collected from businesses and taken back to the Business Roundup office to be completed. Liz also has many years of experience managing offices, having always enjoyed balancing accounts and sorting out problems relating to business management. As the most recent member to the Business Roundup team, Vicki Scott has a background in accountancy. Having worked for a couple of local chartered accounting firms previously, she is now getting her feet back under the desk after time away raising her family and will be focusing on clients who do not have an accountant. Her expertise will lie in tax returns, analysing and discussing reports with clients and budgeting. For small businesses, using Busi-

ness Roundup offers a number of advantages, most important of which is that the team can step into any business situation and deal with whatever financial task that is needed. Whether it’s sorting out the payroll, sending out invoices, managing debtors or bank reconciliations, Business Roundup can pick up any part of the books that business owners haven’t got the time for or are unfamiliar with, keeping the business up to date and running smoothly. This goes for businesses that already have their own accountant. Business Roundup works closely with a number of local accounting firms, covering the day to day book work of the business until the end of the year when they will hand the paper work over to the accountant to file the tax returns. For those who don’t have an accountant, Vicki can provide this service, and because the team have been working with clients throughout the year on their books, the cost of the tax return can be kept down. Another side to Business Roundup is their training services. For many small business owners, accounting software packages are often bought

Sue is able to offer one on one training with people for a number of low cost programmes such as MYOB, Xero, Banklink, Quickbooks, Acepay and job costing programme Workflow Max, as well as provide programme installs and setups. These can save hours of manual bookkeeping, giving business owners more time to get out and offer the services they excel in. Once the initial training has been completed Sue is always able to troubleshoot any problems further on down the track. This also goes for new businesses looking to make a go of their chosen enterprise. Sue can help owners put systems in place for efficient bookkeeping practices, introduce them to the best software, generally foster stable foundations for the businesses longevity and potential growth. The philosophy of Business Roundup is simple; keeping track of business, and that means whether Sue and her team are taking the leading role in keeping accounts up to date or are simply passing on their knowledge

to help business owners maintain their own bookkeeping. As long as it is being done and being done correctly, Sue is happy. “I enjoy the people, we do the same similar thing for everybody but it’s just the different personalities that you get, and I think it’s just knowing you’ve helped somebody that I really enjoy. I also like the challenge of setting up new systems and with the training side of it, when that light bulb flicks on and everything fits into place for them, it’s actually quite a rewarding feeling really.” For a more streamlined and effective approach to the nuts and bolts of your business, Business Roundup could be the answer. Whether you simply require a tax return, the books have become too much, you have no wish to deal with the bookkeeping or you simply prefer to outsource it rather than employ someone on wages, Sue and the team are committed to helping in any way they are needed for the overall success of your business. To talk to them about how they can benefit your business, give them a call today on 544 9748.

Pipe band members parade down Trafalgar St on Saturday as part of the New Zealand Pipe Band Championships over the weekend. Photo: Doug Barry-Martin.

Win caps off a top weekend for our local pipe band It was a home turf award at the National Pipe Band Championships on Friday as the Celtic Pipe Band of Stoke took home the championship award. There was no mistaking the sound of bag pipes heard around the city on Friday and Saturday as 45 bands from New Zealand and Australia competed in the championship competition. The event started on Friday with performances at Trafalgar Park. On Saturday, competitors marched down Halifax, Trafalgar and Hardy Sts, followed by the final competitions. Just three years after winning the Grade 4A championships, the Stoke band won grade 3. Pipe Major Bryce Gilchrist headed the Stoke band who won both the set and medley as well as the full championship. He says it is fantastic to be able to win the cham-

pionships when their city was host. “Absolutely the cream on the cake was having won on our own home turf and having our own mayor presenting us with the trophies.” The band also came second in the street march behind the Wellington Red Hackle, a team with two players from Tasman. Nelson mayor Rachel Reese overlooked the parade on Trafalgar St along with presidents of both the New Zealand and Australian pipe band associations. Event organiser, Helen Gilchrist, says Rachel was delighted with the results and the council is supportive of a bid to run the national contest again in two years’ time. Helen says the event has had fantastic support from locals and community groups such as Scouts and Army Cadets who helped with setting-up and marshalling.

Brightwater turns out for school gala Monique Bergman The sun was out and shining and so were the kids as they entertained the crowds at the annual Brightwater School Gala. The Brightwater community supported the event and enjoyed lunch on the grass while children took to the stage and sang and danced for the audience. There was a real country feel to the gala with a farmer’s market selling fresh home-grown fruit and vegetables and various home-made arts, crafts and food. The silent auction was popular again and there were baskets full of goodies for the raffles. Plenty of fun and action was had on the back field, with climbing walls, a bouncy castle, giant balls and a laser tag range. For those wanting quieter activities, a beauty area was available complete with a hair and nail salon and face painting. Principal, Gerald Baldwin says it was a great day out and the community supported the gala, despite many other events being on at the same time. Around $24,000 was raised with all proceeds going towards building a 500m cycle trail within the school grounds, which will be used for daily exercise along with education on bike safety and preparing the children for riding the Tasman Great Taste Trail.

duced here are used within the domestic market, with the remainder exported to the US, United Kingdom, Europe, Japan and Australia. Speciality varieties grown in our region, such as Nelson Sauvin and Motueka, are in high demand from the international market because of their big aromas. “Our product is unique in the fact that our hops are grown without the use of fungicides or pesticides and our hops have no diseases, which we are recognised internationally for,” says Doug. Fourth generation hop farmer, Peter Lines from Totara Brewing, grows 12 varieties of hops on his property in Wakefield. Peter says his client base has increased over the past 10 years due to the worldwide growth of both small and large craft beer breweries. Peter says his harvesting machine is working seven hours a day and he expects his 12 staff will harvest around 27 tonnes this season.

After 50 years Quality care continues Alvin Cooper is passing his practice into the capable hands of Steph Wills

4 Salisbury Rd, Richmond Ph 544 5985

Dentist Alvin Cooper has been practising at 4 Salisbury Rd in Richmond for twenty years. He has sold his practice to local dentist Steph Wills, who says that she feels honoured to have been entrusted with the care of Alvin’s patients. Alvin has been in the industry for almost 50 years. He graduated from Otago University in 1966 and then spent four years in the UK, where he met and married his wife Dianne. Returning to New Zealand he worked for 18 years in Westport, which he thoroughly enjoyed. “The West Coast community being how it is I mixed with all types, ending up with a broad spectrum of friends,” says Alvin. What many patients don’t know is that he was a keen runner and harrier and has completed seven marathons. He also had his private pilot’s license, which came in handy flying to Christchurch from the Coast to attend dental meetings and lectures. The professional isolation and difficulty in accessing continuing education eventually led to

Alvin leaving the West Coast for Nelson. Initially he worked with Andrew Meffan, before setting up by himself at 4 Salisbury Rd where he is today. Alvin is now looking forward to taking a back seat and having time to focus on his love of history and restoring and riding old motorbikes. He will continue to work one day a week at the Richmond practice. Steph Wills has thirty years experience in dentistry and owns a large practice in Motueka. She is looking forward to dividing her time between the two practices. Steph says that their philosophy is to perform dentistry to a high standard and to treat people in a manner in which they themselves would like to be treated. “I enjoy my job on a technical level but it is the people that make it. Alvin feels the same, we have a similar standard and expectations with regard to patient care. This move, we are sure, will work well for both of us and most importantly for the patients of the practice.” Business Update. Adv.

Colourplus owners Trish Gray, John Gray, Nicola Gear and Kevin Gear are proud to be offering customers the best service from their newly merged store. Colourplus Richmond is the ultimate design destination, especially now that they have combined the resources and knowledge of both the Richmond and Nelson stores. The successful merger, completed just before Christmas last year, has meant the Nelson store and its staff have been picked up and relocated to Richmond, creating a bigger, brighter and better business for all their customers. By having all their resources under one roof, Colourplus can now run a more efficient operation. For customers that means having consultants present in every instance to handle enquiries surrounding home design, and when it comes to samples, Colourplus now have the largest collection across drapes, wallpaper and blinds in the Nelson Tasman region. During their merge, Colourplus are also proud to have taken on Luxaflex, the high end brand name in blinds. While the move means a physical presence in Nelson is no more, Colourplus are thrilled that a substantial number of Nelson homeowners have followed them to Richmond, taking advantage of their fantastic range in all things design and their unbeatable expertise. Colourplus are far more than a paint shop; they represent all aspects of colour, texture and style and are just as committed to the outcome of your home as you are. “We’re not just here for you to choose a can of paint; we want to be involved in your whole project, whether it’s one room, one cupboard or one house,” says owner, Kevin

Gear. “If you’re doing a new build, we can help co-ordinate all of your colours including your joinery, roof colour, tile colour, brick colour and exterior fittings.” When it comes to finishing and furnishing a new home, renovating, or refreshing a particular space, Colourplus are there for you right from the start. From the initial inquiry in store to the free in home consultation, every detail about your new room or home is discussed from floor to ceiling. If it’s a new kitchen or a new lounge you’re looking to create, consultants will work with you to choose every aspect whether they sell it or not, offering the exact same services that a paid interior designer would provide. “We listen closely to our customers and once we pick up that people are wanting to make extensive changes to their home, it’s really important for us to know all the information regarding furnishings, because all of those items have to go with the wallpaper and the drapes. We don’t choose for them, we’ll come up with options and they will make the final decision, but we are dedicated to creating an outcome that exceeds their expectations and the only way to do that is to be part of the whole process,” says Kevin. No matter what size project you may be undertaking, make sure you give Colourplus a call and take advantage of a free in home consultation with one of their brilliant colour consultants.

Preparations are well underway as Club Waimea gets set to host the Clubs New Zealand 2015 annual conference and annual general meeting this week. The conference is a prestigious event that Clubs New Zealand distributes carefully and it’s the first time Club Waimea has hosted the event after it was transferred to their premises. Even though they were required to play hosts at short notice, the efforts

to get the club in tip-top shape have been a success and they are now more than ready to look after the 230 delegates and other guests who will make up the conference party, says Club Waimea manager John Hewison. At the same time, Club Waimea will also be housing an expo on club-related equipment, from coffee machines to gaming machines, which will be on display for people to view.

The conference will see around 400 people converge on Club Waimea over the three days. country. Those visiting the club will also enjoy some time off to take in the sights and activities that the area has to offer, with musical entertainment organised within Club Waimea and a mystery trip for the delegates. With volunteer work already contributing a great deal to the preparations for the event, and further help already being organised for the arrival of the conference’s delegates, Club Waimea are still looking for volunteers to transport their visitors around. Anyone interested in offering this service can contact Kevin McKenzie on 544 8060. The event is a great opportunity to showcase Club Waimea, a club that prides itself on its friendly, sociable and community-minded spirit, attributes which have already contributed to their place on the list as one of the top ten clubs in New Zealand. While the club does stand to profit from the successful execution of the conference, it is, by far, more important that they

are successful in offering the highest standard of hospitality to their guests. The event will be running from Thursday, March 19 until Saturday March 21. During that time Club Waimea will be a hive of activity. While the hall will become a designated area for conference attendees, the rest of Club Waimea’s facilities will be open at all times for members and visiting members. For those outside the club looking to be a part of the social activities, joining Club Waimea could be the best thing you ever did. While non-members are only allowed entry into Club Waimea as guests of a signed-up member, becoming part of the club is as simple as picking up and filling out a membership form from the Club Waimea office. Everyone is welcome to join and with so many facets to the club’s facilities, you will have plenty to keep you busy. Club Waimea is located at 345 Queen St in Richmond, or you can give the friendly office staff a call on 543 9179 for more information.

John has given his motivational speeches all over the world, talking to most of the major corporations in New Zealand, Australasia, and Asia, and has recently been to New York to give a presentation to the senior management team of General Electric. In addition to an already impressive repertoire, John has won the prestigious Speaker of the Year award from NSANZ and was awarded his CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) from NSAA. John has also succeeded in becoming a bestselling author, having published two books titled, 'Life is for Living' and 'Inspire Your Team'.

Red Cross to host forum in Nelson

Nick Ippolito, Hope Community Church

Facebook, Pinterest, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat. Some of you reading this are so lost right now and all you read was You-Twit-Face. If that’s you, let me explain. It’s 2015! We live in an age that loves to use social media to share what we’re doing, what we’ve done, and what we wish we were doing instead. But why? Do you really need to Instagram what you’re eating for breakfast? Do I really need to watch your cat chase your dog into a glass door? Why do I feel the need to Snapchat my kid’s sleeping like a starfish? And why can’t we stop checking it, even when we go to the bathroom. (Yes, you can admit it, you know you do it, too!) We use social media to share what’s important to us and what we’re passionate about. This is why we love sharing awesome videos of mountain biking, pictures from our weekend and articles about our profession. But I ask the question again - why share at all? I think perhaps it’s because we have a deep desire and longing to be noticed and liked. When we send or post something we eagerly await to see how many followers or likes we can get. For example, do you find yourself feeling low and then snapping a selfie of you looking your best and then title it, ‘just woke up’ or ‘not feeling good’ today and then stand by and wait for

Red Cross is encouraging locals to learn more about the organisation and join up as a member or volunteer. The Tasman-Marlborough Area Council Annual Forum is being held this Saturday in Nelson and is the “perfect place” for people to learn more about its mission. That mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilising the

power of humanity and enhancing community resilience. Presentations at the forum will include a talk on women in war, humanitarian aid in emergency and conflict situations and during the forum there will be tours of one of the local disaster welfare support team’s vehicles. The forum will be held on 21 March from 9am to 3:30pm at NMIT, 322 Hardy St, Nelson.

the comments to role in? For the same reason, I believe it’s why we invest into looking at what others share because we feel the need to compare with others. We read stories, see pictures and watch videos of people who are having better holidays, whose kids are more behaved, homes are nicer, and jobs are better. The perception is that their lives are better too. Comparison is deadly and soul-destroying, because no matter how great life is compared to another person, we can always find someone who is perceived to be doing better. Imagine what your life would be like if you were completely content and had no need for that kind of attention. No need to compare or desire to be liked by others. The Bible actually talks about that kind of contentment. Being known and loved by God gives you the ability to have complete rest and peace in your heart in a restless and anxious culture because when compared to everything else, God is better. Prices include fitting, balancing & gst. Philippians 4:7 says, “the peace of God which • A good selection of mags is also available. surpasses all understanding will guard your Best Service hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”. • Puncture repairs, second handprices tyres.

Rainbow Rage celebrates 20 years Simon Bloomberg

On Boxing Day in 1995, Mike Gane and Barry Chamberlain mountainbiked from St Arnaud through the old stock-driving route to Hanmer Springs. When they were sitting in the pub afterwards enjoying “the best pie and pint we’d ever had”, Mike says they agreed the ride would be “a bloody good idea for an event”. The following year, the “bloody good idea” became a reality when Mike organised the first Rainbow Rage mountainbike race from St Arnaud to Hanmer Springs. Sixty-six riders competed in the 106km race and although it was cold and wet with a bone-chilling head wind, the riders raved about it and entries increased dramatically to a peak of 1604 in 2001. Although numbers have fluctuated since then it still remains extremely popular with many riders notching up 10 or more Rainbow Rages and around 500 riders expected at this year’s 20th edition. “At the prizegiving last year, I asked riders who had done 10 or more Rainbow Rages to put up their hands and I was surprised

at how many there were,” Mike says. “We even had one rider, Ian Gabites, who had done it 15 times. “There’s also been quite a few families doing it together. Last year, the fastest woman, Olivia Miller, was racing against her father, Tim.” Of course there have always been some riders who have needed more of a challenge than simply riding 106 kilometres. Nelson’s world marathon mountainbike champion Tim Vincent rode a 1937 Swiss army bike weighing a hefty 20 kilograms in 2008, Wellington’s Ken Looi rode a unicycle in 2005 while multisport racers Richard and Elina Ussher completed a double Rainbow Rage in 2012 riding back to St Arnaud into a strong headwind just minutes after arriving at Hanmer Springs. Some of the country’s biggest cycling names have also lined up in the Rainbow Rage. Tim dominated the event from 2002 to 2006 while his Swiss wife, Sandy Kunz won the women’s race from 2004 to 2007. Multisport legend Nathan Fa’avae, who won the inaugural race, and Tour de France riders Jack Bauer and Nathan Dahlberg have also taken line honours.

Riders blast through one of the many fords on the Rainbow Rage last year. Saturday’s 20th Rainbow rage also promises to be fast and furious at the business end of the field with Tim Filmer, who set the record of 3 hours 26 minutes 18seconds in 2012 expected to line up against last year’s winner Henry Jaine and Nathan Fa’avae.

But the Rainbow Rage is not just about the speedsters. Above all, it is an adventure ride and that’s what Mike believes has made it one the country’s most iconic mountainbike events. “It’s not a race, it’s a ride,” Mike insists. “We called it a race the first year we did it but the next year we changed it to an adventure ride with the emphasis on participation and it took off. “It’s a ride that anyone, with a reasonable level of fitness, can do and I think most people just enjoy treating it as a personal challenge rather than a race.” As well as the personal challenge and amazing camaraderie that riders experience on their journey, Mike says the other big appeal is the spectacular and constantly changing scenery. Riders wind their way through pristine beech forests and climb into vast subalpine highcountry, over Island Saddle and alongside the Clarence River before ascending Jacks Pass and then plunging six kilometres and 620 vertical metres down to the finish at Hanmer Springs Domain. The Rainbow Rage will be held this Saturday starting at 9am.

Winning runner earns free entry for life Nelson runner Phil Costley completed a five-peat of the Kaiteriteri Gold Half Marathon winning the challenging race around the hills near Kaiteriteri in a fast 1hr 16min 5sec. And the bad news for his competitors is that Phil is likely to be back to defend his title after receiving a permanent free entry into the race as part of his prize for winning. Mapua’s Dave Keen

was second in 1hr 24min 47sec, Sam Coombes of Blenheim third in 1hr 29min 24sec and Nelson’s Stu Cottam fourth in 1hr 30min 1sec. Motueka’s Colette Read won the women’s half marathon in 1hr 39min 55sec. Waimea College year 10 student, Cameron Jones, won the 10km race in 37min 39 sec. Hannah Viner of England won

the women’s 10km in 38min 27min 2sec ahead of Nelson’s Robyn Deane who recorded 43min 3sec. Walk winners were Peter Hague and Elaine Lewellin in the half while the consistent Bevan Cook, who competed in the M70+ age group, and Lyn Smith strode to 10km titles. About 300 runners and walkers competed in the event.

Around 200 intermediate students from seven Nelson, Stoke and Richmond schools competed in the annual Interschool Swimming Competition held at Nayland Pool last Friday. There was a very high standard of swimming at the meet with three records broken during the competition. Piper Riley from Waimea Intermediate School broke the only individual record of the day in the year seven girls 50m freestyle race, with a new time of 32.34sec, beating Ellie Rukuwai’s previous record of 32.45 set in 2009. Two more records were broken, this time in the relays with Waimea Intermediate School slashing the long stand-

ing year eight girls 4 x 50m freestyle record with a new time of 2min 12 sec. The previous record was set in 1998 by Nelson College for Girls Preparatory School. Nelson College for Boys Preparatory School also broke their own school’s previous record of 2min 10sec in the 3 x 50m medley relay with a new time of 2min 5.28sec. There were some outstanding individual performances at the swim meet with Bendi Kepess from Waimea Intermediate School winning the boys year eight grade A final of the butterfly, freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke races. Ruby-Lou Stuart, also from Waimea Intermediate, won the year eight girls freestyle and butterfly races.

Dancing sisters make ballet school For Richmond sisters Isabel and Georgia Norriss, ballet is not just an art, it is a passion and a way of life. Waimea College student Isabel, was accepted into the New Zealand School of Dance as a classical major in the associates programme after auditioning in September last year. At 13, she attends four weekends of tuition throughout the year at the prestigious dance school in Wellington. The Associates Programme identifies ballet and contemporary dance students who have the talent for a career in dance and places are strictly limited. Isabel is in a class of 12 dancers from around the country, who are assessed regularly and can only progress to the next

level of the programme by invitation only. “It was really exciting to be accepted, dancing makes me feel happy and I really want to get into the Royal New Zealand Ballet and Royal Ballet in London one day,” says Isabel. Georgia, aged 11, has been dancing for six years and is as equally talented as her older sister. She was accepted into the New Zealand School of Dance in the Scholars programme after auditioning in Wellington last December. The programme provides training for classical ballet students from the age of 10 with dancers from the lower North Island invited to attend. Under special circumstances, students from other regions are invited and Georgia

monique@waimeaweekly.co.nz was approached to attend. Both sisters have been dancing for more than half of their young lives and study ballet at Nelson’s Rebecca Bignall Academy of Dance. They train seven days a week, which includes ballet classes, pilates, body conditioning, and strengthening and practicing routines. The talent doesn’t stop with the girls as their mother, Amanda, represented New Zealand in gymnastics and appreciates the high level of dedication required to com-

pete at top level. Both girls will also perform in front of international judges at the highly-regarded Alana Haines Australasian Awards, in Wellington at Easter. Isabel will be performing in the supreme A section and Georgia will be entering in the competition for the first time in the junior scholar section. Isabel reached the semi-finals at the last awards held two years ago and hopes to do better at this year’s awards. The dance event, which runs over four days, is the largest in Australasia with over 430 entries and over $300,000 worth of awards and international training scholarships from dance schools around the world on offer.

Nelson swimmers make NZ team Nelson Waimea Gun Club results Four Nelson swimmers will represent New Zealand at the Australian Age championships in Sydney next month. Sam McKenzie, 15, Caitlin Delany,16, Thomas Heaton, 16, from the Tasman Swimming Club and Clara Foster, 15, from the Nelson South Club were confirmed in the 30 person squad last week. The Georgina Hope Swimmers Foundation Australia Age Championship will be held at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre from April 13 to 18. Caitlin will compete in the female 16 years 100m breaststroke, Thomas will race in the male 16 years 400m and 1500m freestyle, Sam has qualified for the 50m, 100m, 200m, 400m and 1500m freestyle and Clara will swim in the 100m and 200m breaststroke and 200 individual medley. Swimming coach, Andy Adair says his goal when he started coaching in Tas-

Garin College student Thomas Heaton is one of four Nelson swimmers selected to swim at the Australian Age championships in Sydney next month. man two and half years ago was to develop a national swimming programme. “I don’t think the Nelson-Tasman region has had a New Zealand representative swimmer for a very long time, it is really fantastic. It recognises the fact that they have worked very hard and these kids have listened and had faith in what I have asked them to do, and as result,

they are swimming fast. “There is loads of potential in this region. We just need the opportunity to mature and develop,” says Andy. Caitlin, who attends Waimea College, was excited to receive the email from selectors confirming her spot on the team. Her goal is to make the finals of the 100m breaststroke race and she is working hard with Andy on improving her stroke. “My aim was to make the qualifying time, which I did in Wellington back in January. It has been a long wait to find out whether I got into the team and I am pretty happy, it is my biggest achievement so far,” says Caitlin. Andy will also travel to Sydney as one of the New Zealand team coaches. “There is nothing better as a coach than being on the team too, it is always a thrill to get on the New Zealand team,” says Andy.

Waimea College Girls Volleyball Waimea College’s national volleyball champions are aiming to go back-to-back when they head to the national schools championships this week. Last year the Waimea College girls A team won the national title and with a strong core of last year’s squad heading back this year, there’s confidence they can remain best in the country. Four new players from last year’s B team and a fifth player who transferred to Waimea College have filled the void of last year’s stars and coach Josh Ovsenek says they’re determined to do well, but they have some stiff competition vying

for their crown. “We’re usually a top eight squad and I think this year’s nationals are going to be even tougher. The competition will be even stronger and having won it last year, people will be out to play their best game against us,” he says. The team won the recent Tasman Champs last weekend, a positive step for the team, says Josh, although preparations also took on the form of a team bonding session at the Nelson Fire Station. “It’s been our third or fourth time training at the station and each time the team there really put the girls through good team building ex-

ercises, to see where we’ll be and how we can cope with different stress and pressure and things like that. We’ve found that every year it’s been a big help bringing the girls together and it actually shows them what they can do if they work together as a team,” Josh But it isn’t just the A team hoping for glory, the Waimea College girls B team won their division last year as well and expectations are high for them to also do a repeat. The team hasn’t seen major changes to players since last year so their familiarity and the work they did together during

last year’s competition should stand them in good stead to achieve their target again in 2015. Their performance has drastically improved in the last two weeks, shown when they beat Nayland College’s A team at the Tasman Champs tournament at Saxton Stadium last weekend. Coach Dayna Whiting says she had set that as their goal for the competition and was happy they had succeeded in reaching it, coming fourth overall. Both teams head to nationals on Saturday with the competition starting on Monday and running for the entire week.

Feedback sought – Rural land use and subdivision policy review

Proposed Road Closures to Ordinary Vehicular Traffic

In recent months, the Council has been preparing changes to rural land use and subdivision provisions in its Tasman Resource Management Plan. Feedback on a Draft Plan Change is now being sought from residents. The proposed changes could provide opportunities for rural housing and subdivision with specific opportunities for rural commercial activities, cooperative living and rural-residential development. The new ideas have been developed from an earlier period of consultation on issues and options and Council workshops on the feedback received. The Council is now seeking public input into the Draft Plan Change until the end of March 2015. To find out more and see a copy of the draft Plan Change you can go to the Council’s website or view at the Council’s Service Centres.

The maximum rebated for this rating year is $605. Forms are held in each of the Council’s offices. These have a Rates Rebate Income Eligibility Table on the front. The property you are applying for must be your principal place of residence.
