Teens save drunk cook

Jacob Chandler

A drunk cook was saved by three teenagers who heard the man’s smoke alarm sound at around 3am on Saturday. The man returned home from a night of drinking and decided to cook some sausages in a pan on a stove. He went into another room to sit down and fell asleep

leaving the pan unattended. Richmond chief fire officer, Ralph Lonsdale, says the man was lucky he had smoke alarms that alerted the teenagers to the property. “The people walking past called the emergency services and broke into the house, taking urgent action before the emergency services arrived. The man himself didn’t

hear the smoke alarm going off because he was deep asleep” He says smoke inhalation in that sort of situation was very common. “In that sort of scenario that’s usually what happens. If it was a longer period of time the sausages would of course catch fire and smoke and possibly the whole house would go up. Of course, if the person’s fast

asleep they don’t wake up.” The man was treated at the house by ambulance but wasn’t transported to hospital. Ralph says it goes to show the dangers of drinking and frying, and advises everyone to have smoke alarms installed. He says the incident highlights the need for the fire service’s current “don’t drink and fry” advertising campaign.

Campaign to help families cut food waste Two new initiatives are about to be launched to encourage people to minimise food waste, after a survey showed that families in Nelson and Tasman were throwing out an average of 3.3kg of edible food each week. The survey conducted last year, involving 19 households throughout the region, showed that food makes up a massive 30 per cent of the rubbish placed into kerbside collections that goes into landfills. Twenty-seven per cent of households admitted to being large food wasters, throwing out more than $21 per week of edible food while 38 per cent wasted $8 per week. Tasman District Council utilities network engineer, David Stephenson, says that’s too high, and both the Nelson and Tasman councils

have been preparing two pilot schemes aimed at encouraging households not to waste food. “We interviewed everyone in the survey and found that no one wanted to waste food but they needed some tools and guidance for minimising that waste. Education is the key, so we are going to hold a series of workshops with parents in kindergartens around the region starting next term. “We’ve also filmed some videos of the chef Michael McMeeken in his Streat Kitchen, which will be released on Youtube in April. They show people how to use all of the food they buy and avoid

Campaign cut food waste FROM PAGE 1 wasting any.” David, whose family took part in the survey, says it was interesting looking at waste on a small scale after managing thousands of tonnes of solid waste the district produces each year. He jokes that one of the biggest challenges his family faces is “getting the kids to eat all of their school lunch”. “Families often cook meals that are too big and then the leftovers get thrown out. A lot of people also

throw out food that’s passed its expiry date or bread that’s gone stale. “But we found one of the biggest ones was school lunches. We’ve got four kids and you try to get them to eat all their lunch - it’s impossible.” David says minimising food waste is important because it will help cut the family grocery bill, as well as reducing the amount of waste going into landfills. “It takes up space and produces methane, and we have to pay to collect it, cart it around the district and put it in the ground.”

Former Grey Power president to stand Andrew Board

Two former presidents of Nelson Grey Power have made two very different public announcements this week – one is re-standing for president, the other is pulling out. Gordon Currie, president of the organisation for 21 years, is putting his name forward to be president again, while Neville Male, his successor, has pulled out of the race. Gordon made his announcement to Waimea Weekly, saying he’s been asked by members to stand to provide some “stability

and direction” to Nelson Grey Power. “It has been difficult for me to stand by and watch the drama that has occurred over the Former last six months.

cially not Nelson Grey Power and its members.” Gordon’s announcement comes less than a week after ousted president, Neville Male, said he would not stand for president at the AGM, but endorsed a “progressive” list of candidates. Members on both sides of the warring factions say they hope the AGM on April 1 will end months of dispute between the two. Both sides are urging a big turnout for the AGM, which is being held at 10.30am at Annesbrook Church, on Saxton Rd, in Stoke.

Native fish given new home

Unparalleled exposure for your product or service*

Simon Bloomberg

Thousands of native fish were salvaged from Borck Creek and introduced to their new home in a man-made waterway last week as part of a $2 million project to widen the creek and improve Richmond’s stormwater drainage system. Borck Creek starts in the Richmond Hills before meandering across the Waimea Plains and entering the Waimea Estuary near Headingly Lane off Lower Queen St. It is an important part of Richmond’s stormwater drainage system and last week the Tasman District Council completed a key step in a project to widen the creek. “Borck Creek doesn’t always cope well in high flood events so we’ve made a wider channel to help take the flood flows,” council project manager Chris Blythe says. “The old channel is being abandoned and replaced by a 70m wide and 400m long one.” Chris says the new waterway flows alongside Headingly Lane between Lower Queen St and the Waimea Estuary, and is designed to accommodate flood flows of up to 35 cumecs. The flow in Borck Creek was diverted into the new channel on Wednesday and fisheries consultant Tom Kroos and council staff spent Thursday and Friday salvaging fish using

The project will also involve planting native vegetation along the banks of the new waterway and, in future, there will be landscaping to provide a public amenity. “It’s a collegial project between different Council teams

including engineering, parks and reserves, community development, and environment and planning,” Chris says. “The stormwater is the immediate priority but we are also aiming to reproduce a natural streambed and provide public amenities. It’s a bit a of a learning curve for all us and we’ll be making improvements as we go. We’ll stop at the end of the first section and assess things, and see what works and what doesn’t - we’ll get better as the project proceeds.” Chris says the next stage of the project, to widen 280m of the creek upstream of Lower Queen St, is expected to start in six to eight weeks. The final stage of the current work will extend along Poutama Drain to Jubilee Park.

Dun slip ‘shouldn’t have happened’ Simon Bloomberg

Re-opening the Dun Mountain Trail is a priority for the Nelson City Council and Brook Waimarama Trust, after a major slip wiped out a section of the historic trail earlier this month. A 22 metre long section of the 152-yearold Dun Mountain Trail slipped onto the new fence line cut for the sanctuary’s pest-proof fence, following heavy rain in Nelson on March 6. Engineers are presently assessing the damage, and sanctuary general manager, Hudson Dodd, says they expect to have some options for repairing

the trail within a week. “We are waiting for the assessment so, until then, we don’t have a lot to go on,” Hudson says. “But we are very keen to reopen the Dun Mountain Trail and we are working to make that happen as soon as possible - we expect to have an initial assessment in week.” The council’s communications manager Paul Shattock says one option would be a “quick fix to open up the trail to cyclists and pedestrians” by removing around 4-6 cubic metres of ground. A consent has already been granted for this under emergency works. Paul says permanent repairs will take

longer because the slip is situated in the conservation zone. Soil disturbance or earthworks are not permitted in this zone except for the maintenance of an existing track on the existing alignment. However, well-known mountainbiking advocate Bryce Buckland and Nelson Residents Association president Mike Rodwell, say the slip should never have happened. Mike says a geotechnical report, indicating that cutting the fenceline close to the Dun Mountain Trail would increase the risk of slips, was ignored by council. “Any practical person knows that cutting the toes of hills in Nelson is inviting prob-

lems big time,” Mike says. “The experts on this project have committed a cardinal sin and must now front up to their mistakes.” Mike, who is a former trustee of the Dun Mountain Trail, says both he and Bryce warned the council about the potential risks of conducting significant earthworks near the trail. Bryce says the terrain near the slip is so steep that “the probability of slope failure was obvious and the fence should not have been allowed anywhere near the trail.” Paul says engineers are currently investigating whether there is a relationship between the earthworks and the slip.

Despite the cooler weather, the locals came out to enjoy the Sprig & Fern Summer Harvest Fare last Friday at Sundial Square. Organiser of the event, Kim Quint from Richmond Unlimited, says it was a great night without any incidences. “There was a good steady crowd all night and it was a very calm, laid back evening. There was a distinct lack of young ones attending, compared with previous years,” says Kim. Plenty of food and beverage stalls were on offer from around the region and band Urban entertained the crowd with people up dancing and having a good time. Kids were occupied too, with bouncy castle and face painting. There were a couple of unrelated incidences that same evening with one person taken away by Richmond Police for detoxification and some infringements handed out for breach of the liquor ban within the Washbourn Gardens area.

Flight cancelled so plane could stay in Auckland

Stranded passengers of an Air New Zealand flight from Auckland to Nelson last Sunday say they will make a formal complaint, after the airline admitted they cancelled the flight because they wanted the plane to stay in Auckland. As reported by Waimea Weekly last week, passengers were scheduled to fly from Auckland to Nelson but the flight was delayed until it was finally cancelled. The reason given was poor weather, but Air New Zealand has admitted the poor weather was for the return leg, meaning it could have flown the passengers home to Nelson but it didn’t want the plane stuck

here overnight. Air New Zealand spokeswoman Imogen Dennis says “a number of factors” caused the issue. “First, the aircraft was late arriving into Auckland. The second factor was that engineering requirements for other aircraft in our turbo prop fleet meant this aircraft was required in Auckland for the peak Monday morning services. “With weather conditions forecast to seriously deteriorate, the decision was taken not to operate the outbound service to Nelson as there was a significant risk the weather conditions would have prevented

andrew@nelsonweekly.co.nz the aircraft making the return leg to Auckland.” Passengers say they should have been compensated for their accommodation costs because the reason they didn’t get home was because Air NZ wanted the plane left in Auckland, not bad weather stopping them from leaving. But Imogen says the airline will not be compensating them.

“As stated in our previous response, while engineering requirements played a part in the initial delay of flight NZ5253, the final decision to cancel the flight was made due to weather conditions. For this reason, compensation for overnight accommodation expenses was not provided.” Since the initial story other passengers have come forward, saying they were also upset with the way Air New Zealand handled the situation. Two separate passengers have told Waimea Weekly they will be writing a formal letter of complaint, as the response from Air New Zealand had been “woeful”.

Local cider wins in Dublin

A sugar-free berry cider produced by McCashin’s Brewery in Stoke has claimed the Supreme Cider Award at the Dublin Craft Beer Cup in Ireland. The Rochdale Three Berry Cider was one of six McCashin’s Brewery products to gain recognition at this month’s awards. Its Rochdale Ginger Lime Cider and beers, the Stoke Bomber Bohemian Ale, Stoke Bomber Oatmeal Stout and Stoke Dark all won silver. McCashin’s Scott McCashin says the Three Berry Cider came out of a lot of trials. It was made using a blend of local boysenberries, raspberries and blackcurrants.

Playcentres struggle as mums head back to work Monique Bergman Fewer families are sending their children to Playcentres and Kindergartens, forcing two of the traditional powerhouses of pre-school education to rethink the way they operate. The Stoke Playcentre, opened four years ago next to Stoke School, is now only open two mornings a week as it battles to attract local families. The facility has seen its numbers reduce from around 17 families last year to only five this year. Parent Kelly Diskin says it’s “sad” to see the facility virtually empty. “It’s such a nice place and so modern and we’d love to have more friends to share it with. But I think the problem is so many mothers have to go back to work and it means they can’t come to Playcentre.” Nelson Playcentre Association executive team member and liaison officer for Stoke Playcentre, Amanda Davis, says “nationally, Playcentres are in a state of flux”. She says that financial pressures on parents across New Zealand are forcing them to go back to full-time work and place their children in day care facilities. As a result, Playcentres don’t have the same number of volunteers available to run the sessions as in previous years. Next month, the Playcentre Federation of New Zealand will hold a meeting to discuss possible changes to its current structure. “The social climate has changed a lot in

New Zealand and parents are returning to work earlier and not staying at home as long as they used to. Regionally, we are trying to keep all the centres open and financially viable until possible national changes are made,” says Amanda. Playcentre began over 70 years ago as a support service to women who were left raising children alone during the Second World War. Its original aim was to provide leisure for mothers and opportunities for the social development of pre-school aged children. Today there are 33 Playcentre Associations throughout New Zealand which offer a learning environment for chil-

dren from birth to six years. A typical Playcentre session is held between 9.30am to 12noon. Trish Casey, CEO of the Nelson Tasman Kindergarten Association, says pressures on the availability of parents at home have forced Kindergartens across the region to adjust their hours also. “Over the last few years, all of our centres within the region have been migrating towards school hours, we are definitely following what the demand is,” says Trish. In the meantime, Kelly says they’d love to have more Stoke families enquire about joining the Playcentre.

School turns cricket fever into maths comp World Cup Cricket fever hit Henley Primary school this week with the launch of a new cricket math competition. To get students interested and involved in math, teacher Rachael Meyers created a competition relating to the World Cup. “The point of the competition is to promote math in a positive way,” says Rachael. Children are given math problems related to the cricket world cup to take home and complete with their parents. Once homework is completed and handed in

to their teachers, student’s names are drawn out to win cricket prizes. Rachael runs various math competitions throughout the year that include topical subjects. She involves the local community by requesting prizes for the children, this time she approached Nelson Cricket who donated shorts and a cricket bat. “It is all about getting both the children and parents involved in math in a fun way,” says Rachael.


Bull on the loose: A bull took a prime opportunity to escape as it wandered through a gap in a farm fence near Stoke late this morning. The council’s customer service centre was alerted to the escaped bull at the top end of Songer street and two animal control officers were dispatched to guide the animal back to it’s paddock. The farmer returned to the area just as the bull was led back onto the property. He then set about repairing the fence.

Fowler says. “I was surprised how it took so long to stop when the car was going 60kmh.” The demonstration, conducted by driving instructor and former traffic officer Gary Dunn, showed that the car could stop safely without hitting the dummy pedestrian at 20kmh and 50kmh, but not at 60kmh. Gary explained that an adult hit by a car travelling at 30kmh would have a 70 per cent chance of survival while a child would only have a 10 per cent chance of survival. “Dozy Dave would be hit in the leg and receive leg injuries, and rib and head injuries but a child would be hit in the torso and have their internal organs crushed and head smashed,” Gary says. “It’s always far worse for a young child because they are smaller.” The two key messages Gary gave to the children were not to play on the road and, if they were a passenger in a car that they thought was going too fast, to “ask the driver are you speeding?” The stopping distance demonstrations were held at 10 locations across the Tasman district and four in Nelson, last week.

e l p o e p d o o f h Y ou r f re s Chris Baird, left, Peter Thomas, centre, and Digby Kynaston, swim au naturel in the Port Nelson Sea Swims. Photo: Simon Bloomberg.

Seals brave cold at sea swims They do it for all sorts of reasons. Some of them don’t like being restricted by a tight wetsuit. Others just enjoy the pure, uncomplicated simplicity of it all and a few just like the natural sensation of seawater against their skin. But whatever their reasons, the swimmers who went through the Port Nelson Sea Swim series wearing nothing but togs certainly gained the admiration of their wetsuited counterparts. The 18race series started on November 6 when the water was a chilly 13 or 14 degrees Celcius and ended last Thursday. “It was pretty cold at the start for them,” series organiser Dick Bennison says. “You can’t just jump in and swim in the cold like that - you have to acclimatise and that’s what a lot of them do. “I think quite a few, like Geoff Lart, swim right through winter without a wetsuit. But most of them are Poms and I reckon if you learned to swim in the Irish Sea anything else will seem warm.” But Peter Thomas, who swam without a wetsuit for the first time this season, says the worst part is actually standing around waiting to get in the water. “The first few swims were cold but the hardest part was standing

around waiting for the swim. Once you get in the water and get going it’s actually not too bad.” Peter says he decided to join the non-wetsuit swimmers this season “for a challenge”. Apart from the cold, he says it also took some time to feel comfortable swimming without the potentially life-saving buoyancy of a wetsuit. “It took a while to get used to it but now I’m really enjoying it,” he says. Veteran non-wetsuit swimmers, Chris Baird and Digby Kynaston, concede that they also felt the cold early in the season but Chris says that just “makes you feel very fresh and alive”. Digby says he couldn’t imagine swimming without the “feel of the water on your body”. But the early season chill and lack of buoyancy aren’t the only challenges of swimming without a wetsuit. “You lose some speed because wetsuits give swimmers extra streamlining,” Peter says. “I’ve noticed this year I’m about a minute and half slower over a kilometre without my wetsuit.” For the record, Geoff Lart won the non-wetsuit men’s long course series ahead of Peter and Chris with Cheryl le Lange, Kay McPherson and Monique Day on the podium for the women.

Jean Jackson, Wednesday, March 11: Local artist Jean Jackson was thrilled with her birthday surprise when her daughters organised an art exhibition solely for her work, held at the Trailways Hotel last Saturday. Jean said the support she got from friends and admirers of her art was amazing, particularly when, the day after her exhibition, she was contacted by a man who wished to buy a second piece of art. Of the 36 pieces that Jean had on display, she successfully sold five of them.

Air New Zealand flight cancelled: I am not surprised to read your report. My wife and I were booked on NZ5253 on Sunday, August 31st, last year as the last leg of a trip home from the UK, and on landing at Auckland we discovered that the flight had been cancelled.

No explanation given. We finally - after a lot of being mucked around - got on the 2050 flight, and arrived home considerably more tired that we had expected. We had originally been booked on 5253 the previous Friday, but had to re-book as my wife became unwell on the flight across Australia and we had to stay in Brisbane for two nights. We then discovered that a neighbour had been booked on 5253 on the Friday we were originally booked, and that flight was cancelled. She also told us that a friend of hers had had the same experience on the same flight LIMITED within the previous two weeks. That is beyond coincidence. The inescapable conclusion is that this flight is a phantom flight, Conveyancing Practitioner scheduled, but operated only if there are enough passengers. It doesn’t matter how much the Offering an experienced, efficient, passengers are inconvenienced. cost effective service for all your Anyone seeking any semblance of a reliable booking would be property law and trust matters. well advised to avoid this particular flight. Roger Cole.

You can email Air NZ all you like, they NEVER reply!! When’s that other airline starting from Nelson? Jude Gray. Grey Power: It is unfortunate that due to an unwillingness to accept arbitration, and a lack of interpersonal skills, the former Nelson Grey Power leadership has attempted to discredit the standing Committee. The current Nelson Grey Power Committee and Vice-President, who have been named as rebels by the former leadership, have, in fact, acted constitutionally and appropriately in trying to advance the interests of the members. If politicians call black white often enough, the public sometimes believe what is being stated and are misled. But it can be hoped that at the Grey Power AGM on April 1, the members

They plan to reinstate the former leadership which has overlooked appropriate constitutional procedure. Dan McGuire. Water levels: I was reading in National Geographic that sea levels are predicted to rise by at least 2 feet, and possibly up to 6ft, by 2100. Surely this needs to be planned for and should be treated as a matter of priority. It would make the Southern Link on Rocks Rd unviable and there is the concern that the whole of the CBD etc would be underwater. What does the mayor have to say? By the way, this is not a ‘do you believe in global warming’ question as the planet has warmed 1 degree over the past century. Whether it is man made, (most likely) or not, is not the point. The point is what are we going to do about it? Doug Barry-Martin. Inflated water bill: Ha! We contacted the council about our just over $1,000 water bill for six months. We don’t even water our garden and we paid a plumber to check taps, etc on the property. No leaks and dry under the house. The council wouldn’t come to the party and we had to pay all of it. About six months ago they changed our water metre to a new one and we have had no problems since, go figure! Hope Rogers.

Henley to help Vanuatu Local man remembers Gallipoli war tales Henley Primary School children held an appeal for the Red Cross last week to raise funds for cyclone ravaged Vanuatu. Both kids and teachers were encouraged to wear red for the day and donate a gold coin towards the cause by placing it onto a red cross. The school presented a cheque for

$577.70 to Jackie Tye, Service Centre Coordinator for the Red Cross. Henley School principal, John Armstrong says it will be a big appeal. “We plan one major fundraiser each term and everyone was happy to get behind it and support such a good cause.”

Richmond’s David Gruschow could be one of the last people in the country to have heard a first-hand account of what it was like in Gallipoli. David’s great uncle, Doug Dibley, was New Zealand’s longest surviving Gallipoli veteran, passing away in 1997 at the age of 101. David remembers visiting his great uncle on the family farm as a young child and recalls his family always being proud of his war efforts. Doug was from Rotorua and during WWI he was a stretcher bearer in the field hospital unit. It was believed that he carried the last wounded man off the peninsula before the final evacuation. In later years, David would visit his great uncle in his rest home where they would share stories about serving in the army, including Doug’s Gallipoli experiences. David received general service medals for his time as a Military Chaplain, serving in Bosnia and Bougainville during their civil wars. “Some people who fought at Gallipoli didn’t like to talk about it but he would chat quite happily about it, perhaps it was because I was also in the army. He talked about training at Trentham and how the con-

Photo: Monique Bergman. ditions were dreadful at Gallipoli,” says David. Doug joined the army in 1915 at 19 years old, after he and his mate saw an advertisement in the paper wanting orderlies in Trentham Military Camp. They had been training a month when they were sent off overseas as members of the New Zealand medical corps. He was transported to Gallipoli at night, to the top of the cliffs at Walker’s Ridge, where the unit was located right behind the lines. The young green soldiers were told to dig holes and burrow in, where they would hear bullets whizz past, a new sensation for Doug, having never heard a shell burst or rifle bullet fly past

before. His job was to take injured soldiers down to the base at the beach, waiting for them to be transshipped at night. Almost 9000 New Zealanders served at Gallipoli and conditions were rough. Soldiers didn’t have enough water for a wash and, as a result, lice were rife throughout the camp. Food consisted of bully beef, biscuits, jam and cheese, with the odd tin of stew. Doug returned to New Zealand in 1918, married and had 11 children. Like many war veterans, he saw first hand the damage war does to people, both at home and to those who go away, and as a result his last recorded statement was “No-one wins in the end”.

Retirement is a time that many people are looking forward to and this year’s Positive Ageing Expo at Headingly Centre is packed with information and services that will help make your retirement years some of the best of your life. The expo will be showcasing around 70 stalls, from commercial services to help you maintain a fit and healthy body through to a range of leisure groups that can help you fill your social schedule. There are many services out there to help people age positively, from the health basics such as hearing and blood pressure tests, to social opportunities to make it easier for people who have a bit more time on their hands to enjoy themselves and meet people with similar interests. Those out there with skills they wish to carry on into their retirement can utilise them within community groups, such as Menz Shed and the trapping and bird recovery groups that

Simply get one stall from each line signed off, submit it and the winners will be drawn and notified after the event. Prizes include Richmond Mall vouchers and a trip into the Abel Tasman National Park, plus heaps more thanks to some generous local businesses.

Fight 4 Victory is a proven winner out of the ring and it’s now only ten days away from finding out who the winners will be inside it. The corporate boxing event was first held in 2013, raising money for the Victory Boxing Charitable Trust. It’s success has helped improve the lives of local kids and of the boxers who took part. The money raised from that first event took a small after-school programme with a few kids and turned it into a hub of Victory. A place buzzing with people, throughout the day and night, six days a week. Since then a lot of work has gone into getting the structures and programmes right as the trust has quadrupled in numbers. So this year’s Fight 4 Victory isn’t so much about establishing a facility and programme, it’s now about making sure it’s here for the long haul. This year’s Fight 4 Victory will feature 20 local boxers. Amongst them are business people, chefs, hairdressers, engineers, lawyers, a landscaper and a police officer. Regular people who are putting their body on the line to help raise money for a good cause.

Andrew Marriott lands a heavy shot on Rob Crawford at the last Fight 4 Victory. Photo: Barry Whitnall/Shuttersport. Fifty corporate tables have already been sold for the event and general admission tickets are selling well. Programme director at the trust, Paul

Hampton, says he’d love to see a good crowd on the night. “This event is unique for Nelson. We don’t see a lot of events like it so hopefully people grab a few friends and

make a night of it. There’ll be a lot of people who know some of the fighters, but even if you don’t it’s still great entertainment.” The fight is sanctioned by the New Zealand Professional Boxing Association and will be MC’d by comedian Mike King and local personality Murray Leaning. Paul says every cent of the money raised goes to the trust. “The funds help sustain and grow our programme and without this event we wouldn’t be here. It’s hugely important for us.” Pat Leonard from the NZ Professional Boxing Association says he does around 50 corporate events around the country each year and the Fight 4 Victory is one of the best. Paul says the fighters have put in 12 hard weeks of work, Saxton Stadium will look a treat and now all it needs is a good turn out to cheer them all on. Doors open for Fight 4 Victory at 5.30pm at Saxton Stadium on April 4. The first fight starts at 7pm and the event is expected to be finished before 10pm. General admission tickets are $35 per person and can be bought from the Theatre Royal, Nelson i-Site, Richmond Mall or online at www.ticketdirect.co.nz

When Richmond resident Joan Probert was pottering around her garden recently, she was surprised to find a pumpkin growing in her Camelia tree. Joan regularly throws her vegetable scraps into the garden which includes pumpkins seeds and as a result, several pumpkins have grown. The vines of one pumpkin climbed the tree and settled on a branch and stayed unnoticed until it was large enough to poke through the leaves. Photo: Monique Bergman.

Country music at its best

It was country music heaven as the annual Sun City Country Music awards rocked Club Waimea. Things kicked off on February 28 with a showcase, highlighting the talents of the weekend’s judges and guests. With a capacity crowd, it was a successful start to a weekend of the country’s best country music singers, with auditions starting on Saturday and continuing on until Sunday in the club’s hall and the Richmond Bowling Club. In a letter to Club Waimea, organisers of the music awards thanked both clubs for the use of their facilities. “We appreciated the support shown from all that attended and also a big thanks to John and his team at Club Waimea for the wonderful assistance and facilities,” wrote convenor, Linda Hahn. Saturday evening saw competitors compete in the Rock’n’Roll section which was well supported by the local Rock’n’Roll club who didn’t hesitate to show of their impressive dancing skills and, by Sunday, the judges had narrowed the acts down from 260 to 51. The final showcase on Sunday, featuring a lot of local Nelson’s Brooklyn Scott singing in the NZ Sun City Coun- talent, was well supported by members try Music Awards for 2015. Brooklyn was crowned overall of the public who came to enjoy counwinner of the junior section. try music at its best.

Club Waimea manager, John Hewison and president Jan Phipps with Clubs New Zealand president, Tom Fisher during the conference and AGM.

Our Club has impressed

Club Waimea have impressed on a national level after hosting the Club’s NZ 2015 Conference and Annual General Meeting. It’s been on everyone’s minds for the past few weeks and now the club can relax and go back to their normal routine with the satisfaction of knowing the

conference and AGM was a success. Club’s New Zealand President Tom Fisher expressed his approval at the quality of Club Waimea’s hospitality, rating them as an eight on a scale of one to ten. The event was important to those in leadership positions within clubs around the country for

its networking opportunities and chances to learn updated information about their industry. The AGM then dealt with the rules, regulations and licensing that comes with operating and allowed members to share their expectations for the Clubs New Zealand organisation.

Fortunately, the laden truck moved off in the middle of the night last Monday. The house being relocated was formerly the vicarage for St Paul’s Church has stood on its Brightwater site since 1903.

St Paul’s Vicarage – on the move! Perriam Enterprises have been contracted with the task of relocating the vicarage to its new site, just this side of Motueka. The vicarage was built in 1903 to replace its predecessor, an 11 room residence that was destroyed by fire. Insured for a

princely sum of 300 pounds, extra funds needed to be borrowed from the diocese. Interestingly, the very first Brightwater Horticultural Society flower show was held to help raise funds for the first loan instalment. A new residence is being built on the site.

207 QUEEN STREET. RICHMOND. 03 543 9391. www.nbs.co.nz NBS is not a registered bank.

I recently read about a homeless man living on the streets of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, who fled from police who were bringing him news of a six million dollar inheritance that had been left to him. Tomas Martinez, 67, thought the police were coming to arrest him and he took off and has never been seen since, so never found out that he was really a very wealthy man. What a tragedy. This true story of a man who had great wealth available to him but he had no knowledge of it. Equally sad is the true story of New York billionaire Leona Helmsley, who left $12million dollars to her pet dog, Trouble, while some of her family were left out of the will, causing greater trouble. Inheritances can be cause for great celebration and unfortunately they can also be the reason for incredible trouble and animosity. Ask any lawyer. Leaving an inheritance is Ross Ferguson Richmond actually God’s idea which Community is a consistent theme right Church. through the scriptures. The underlying purpose is to be blessed and to be a blessing, to live fruitful lives and to leave a legacy for future generations. Sadly, today, there are many ‘baby-boomers’ who are going on ‘ski’ holidays (Spending Kid’s Inheritance) because they can’t trust their children with hard-earned wealth. There is a proverb that says: “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.” Our family have just had a weekend celebrating the 90th birthday of a very special person, who has left a legacy that has touched countless people besides his own children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Don Fraser has laid a foundation for the generations that is of far greater value than worldly wealth, because it has been built on an understanding of and a relationship with the Father heart of God and his Son Jesus Christ, who had no wealth of his own, yet following his death he has left a lasting legacy. The apostle Paul’s life message was that God’s grace or undeserved favour was given as an inheritance that is for all who want to be adopted by God into His family, so anyone can become heirs of a ‘rich and glorious inheritance’ that is available now. Unfortunately, there are many folk who, like Tomas Martinez, carry guilt or shame that is robbing them of a rich inheritance that is available through the person of Jesus Christ. Think about it.

SPORT Richmond rider wins Rainbow Rage www.shuttersport.co.nz

Richmond’s Brenda Clapp was the fastest woman in the 20th, and possibly last, edition of the 106km Rainbow Rage mountainbike ride from St Arnaud to Hanmer Springs, while Hanmer’s Stephen Halligan won the men’s race ahead of Nelson’s Tom Filmer. Brenda completed the journey through the old stock driving route in 4hr 34min to finish seven minutes ahead of Liz Roberts and nine clear of Jessica Hughes, both

of Nelson. Stephen and Tom rode together for most of the 106km before Stephen raced clear approaching the final climb over Jacks Pass to win in 3hr 33min, five minutes clear of Tom. Organiser Mike Gane says fast times were the order of the day for the Printhousesponsored race, with riders enjoying a steady tailwind for all but the first six kilometres. “There was a headwind drifting down the

valley at the start but I told the riders in the race briefing that they’d get a tailwind after about 10km and they got it after six. It was a beautiful day for them and everyone came in at the finish absolutely grinning.” Although riders had to negotiate a series of slips across the road, Mike says that added to the adventure. “It was a real mountainbike ride because there were so many shingle slides before Island Saddle. Some of them were really

hard to ride so it made it pretty entertaining.” The only bad news for riders is that the 20th Rainbow Rage may be the last. Numbers have been dwindling for a the last three or four years and Mike says the 300 who entered this year were not enough to make it economic. “It’s too early to say if it’s the last. I’ll need some more time to think about it, but it’s not sustainable with 300 riders.”

Kaiteri to host mountainbike race

The Kaiteriteri Weekender 6 Hour Bike Relay will be held during the April school holidays on Saturday, April 11. The date has been moved to encourage families to camp at the event hub, the Kaiteriteri Beach Motor Camp. In addition to the mountain biking event, the Nelson Orienteering Club will run a two hour mountain bike Rogaine on the Sunday morning. This involves each team navigating its way through the Park’s

trail network, visiting checkpoints to accumulate a maximum score within a two hour time period. Also on Sunday afternoon, Steve Newport of HeliBike Nelson will run shuttles to the top ridge so all of those with tired legs can have runs down Corkscrew, Jaws, Velocity and Flamin’ Noraor Rockface. For further information, please go to kaiteriterimtbpark.org.nz or facebook page KaiteriteriMTBPark.

Waimea runner sets new 3000m record Waimea College’s Bridie Edwards continued her record-breaking run in the 3000m, setting her latest mark in the under-16 girls race at the Tasman secondary schools athletics champs at Saxton Field. Bridie had already broken the Tasman 3000m records for the under-14 and under-15 age groups, running 10min 34.71sec in 2013 and 10min 28.19sec last year. Last Wednesday, she added a third record when she blitzed the 3000m in 10min 33.03sec to beat the previous mark set by 36 seconds. And Bridie will get a another chance to improve on that time when she lines up in the South Island secondary schools champs starting at Saxton Field this weekend. Waimea won three 3000m titles last week, with Sami Jordan taking out the under-19 girls race and Dylan Hampton winning the

under-14 boys. Sami also won her 1500m while Garin’s Jared Lautenslager won the under-19 boys 1500m. Waimea’s Gregor Wilson won the under-15 boys hurdles. Waimea College athletes also performed well in the field events with Corbyn Robb (under-14 boys), Phillip Jordan (under-15 boys) and Megan Stack (under-16 girls) winning high jump titles and Jess Kelly (under-14 girls), Shania Kuipers (under-15 girls) and Megan winning their long jumps. Jess and Garin’s Ryan Churchill (under-14 boys) won the triple jump, with Ryan setting a new record of 12.04m. Waimea’s Emma Mackay-Smith (under-16 girls shot put), Samantha Hardie (under-14 girls discus), Brooke Robertson (under-15 girls discus) and Phillip Jordan (under-15 boys discus) also won field events.

Waimea students make national beach volleyball teams Four Waimea College volleyballers have been selected for national age-group teams to play in a series of beach volleyball tournaments in the US in July. Harrison Kilgour and Jacob King have been named in the boys under-21 team, Hannah Davenhill is in the girls under-21 team, while Holly Chandler has been named in the girls under-19 team. Only six players from the South Island have been selected in the two squads that will play US high-performance teams in Waimea College’s Hannah Davenhill, left, and Holly Chandler have been selected for California. New Zealand beach volleyball teams.

FC Nelson look to take on Falcons Andrew Board The championship-winning Nelson Marlborough Falcons football team could fold if talks with FC Nelson don’t pan out, says chair of the board behind the team, Aldo Miccio. Aldo says the current board behind the team will not bid for a licence after their current licence expires for the 2017 season and he’d like to see a club take over to make sure the team remains sustainable. The Falcons had a mixed 2014. On the field it won the national title, an incredible achievement. But off the pitch the lack of a major sponsor and dwindling board meant the organising of the team was done by fewer people, and the board is still paying off last year’s entry fee. Aldo says the team should be in a club structure, where it will have access to more volunteers and supporters. He says the Falcons are about to enter formal discussions with FC Nelson. “After last season we realised that everyone has done their bit, we had run the franchise for two years and needed it to go to a club. We’ve had board members there from the start and if you look at any board you need rotation.” FC Nelson president George Molnar says the club’s focus remains on development of youth players and the Falcons fit into that. “We think this is fantastic for our club and for the Nelson region.” Asked about the financials, a problem that has hampered the Falcons over the past season, George says they will look closely at it. “We wouldn’t be sitting down talking to them if we didn’t think we could make it work.”

Waimea swimmer wins gold medals Simon Bloomberg

Senior reporter Reporter


Waimea Swimming Club’s Tayla Graham completed a golden week, winning four gold medals at the national division two championships that ended in Dunedin last Saturday. Tayla, 16, started her golden run at the Waimea Club championships held at the Waimea College pool on March 14. She beat the club’s 16 year-old girls records in every event she entered, including the 100m, 200m and 400m freestyle, 100m and 200m breast-stroke and backstroke, 100m butterfly and 133m individual medley. The year 12 Waimea College student carried that form into last weekend’s division two nationals setting personal bests on her way to winning the 50m and 100m butterfly, 100m backstroke and 200m individual medley. Incredibly, Tayla recorded 2min 42.26sec for the 200m IM to beat her previous best time by a massive 8.12sec while improving her 100m butterfly by 5.36sec. Tayla had earlier qualified for the national division two champs after winning four events at the South Island Country and Town champs in Blenheim from February 28 to March 2. She also set new records in the 100m and 200m

Tayla, who has been swimming competitively for just over two years, attributes her big improvement to good coaching, hard training and the excitement of swimming national championships. “Jos Pattison is a great coach and he’s really helped me get faster,” Tayla says. “I taught myself to swim but he’s shown me how to improve on all the little things that are so important and he’s so encouraging. “I think the atmosphere at nationals helped too. You always swim faster when you are racing against top swimmers at a big meet.’

Although Tayla has shown talent across all four strokes, she says she wants to focus on breast-stroke and butterfly. Now that she has competed successfully at the division two nationals, her next aim is qualifying for next year’s national age group championships. “I’ve already got two qualifying times for 50m, but I need 100m or 200m qualifying times as well. I’m getting close, so hopefully I can get those for next year.” Tayla’s next assignments are the Tasman secondary school champs in May followed by the South Island secondary school champs in July.
