Woman run over on Queen St crossing

Looking for Nelson’s smartest

Simon Bloomberg Another frightening accident on one of Queen Street’s courtesy crossings has again raised concerns about the safety of the crossings with a nearby retailer saying it’s only a matter of time before a pedestrian is seriously injured. Richmond’s Tracy Mahon suffered a broken ankle when she was hit and run over by a car on the courtesy crossing near Sundial Square on April 23. It was the second serious incident on the crossing in the last three years after a 10-year-old schoolboy was hit and pinned underneath a car in September 2012. “I was three-quarters of the way across the crossing and the car hit me in the hip and knocked me backwards,” Tracy who works at the ANZ Bank says. “I tried to get up but my foot was trapped under the wheel. “I was screaming really loud but I don’t think the driver heard me - he was an old guy and I think he was in shock. Then, after what seemed like forever, he drove forward but he did it suddenly and

Drivers often get frustrated when they are delayed by road works but Higgins Contracting’s super-cheerful stop-go girl Cindy Thompson is doing her best to change all that. For the last three weeks, Cindy has been helping traffic flow at the road works at the intersection of State Highway 6 and Aniseed Valley and Edens roads. The road has been reduced to one lane while the intersection is being widened to make it safer and the stop-go team have been

busy keeping the traffic moving. But instead of becoming annoyed at the delays, many of the drivers are enjoying interacting with the smiley Cindy. Burly truck drivers can be seen laughing and car drivers tooting as Cindy waves, signals and dances her way through the day. “You have to be very aware of the traffic in this job but I also like to interact with the drivers,” Cindy says. “I have lots of people who smile and say ‘you have made my day’ - I feel I have

done my job if I can make one person smile.” Cindy, who also works as a stopgo girl for forestry companies, says she loves her job and, despite the theatrical signals and amusing dance moves, takes it seriously. “When I did the training for this job they said you have to smile and be happy because you are the face of the company. I guess I take it a little further than most,” she says. The road works are expected to be completed this week.

“They are a courtesy crossing and legally people don’t need to stop, so pedestrians need to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the road.”

“It is really up to the pedestrians to make eye contact with the driver in the car. Not every driver looks and pedestrians can be very careless and don’t think.”

“I think the crossings need to be painted more clearly but there are also a lot of people talking on their phone or with headphones in and not taking notice when crossing.”

“It is a bit confusing for everyone. Most cars are courteous but others you think are going to stop, don’t. I think we need to make them into a proper crossing.”

Signs would make courtesy crossing safer, says retailer

“The courtesy crossings might claustrophobic too so it was really have been okay 10 scary being trapped - I’m still see- or 15 years ago but ing visions of it now.” Richmond has got Tracy, who uses the crossing daily so big.

flying through the air when he was hit a couple of years ago and I heard the yelling when the lady was hit this time,” Warren says. “I’ve also seen a lot of near misses and verbal altercations and, unfortunately, it’s only a matter of time before a serious accident.” Richmond School principal Tim Brenton says he has been concerned about the safety of the crossings for a number of years. Many children attending the school use the crossings including Jordan Stirling-Rowling who was hit by the car on the same crossing when he was a pupil in 2012. “There’s such a lack of understanding and that’s what makes it hard for the children,” Tim says. “Sometimes they’ll wait and a driver will stop and usher them across and the next time the car won’t slow down or stop - it’s very confusing for them. “Richmond is getting bigger - it’s not a small country town any-

more - so those crossings don’t work. They need to be replaced by pedestrian crossings to make it clear who has to give way.” Richmond councillor Judene Edgar agrees that something needs to be done to make the crossings safer. She says the council in Hanmer Springs has painted “a couple of yellow lines” on the footpath at courtesy crossings to make pedestrians stop and look and that could be an option for Queen St. Judene says the latest accident highlights the need for the configuration of crossings be considered when the Queen St upgrade starts next year. The police are still investigating the accident. Waimea Weekly says: We believe something needs to be done with the courtesy crossings on Queen St. We’d like to see signs erected to give some clarity for pedestrians and motorists.

Rural areas could turn into the ‘wild west’ www.tangosshoes.co.nz • Monique Bergman The black market for meat in the Nelson region is threatening to turn rural areas into the Wild West, say locals. Poachers have been under the spotlight recently with a spate of incidences reported in the region since January and two men convicted in the Nelson District Court of unlawful hunting. And last week, Nelson police announced they are investigating the discovery of two cattle carcasses on a forestry track in the Dovedale area. The two Friesian-cross yearlings were found on the north side of Jacob’s Ladder on the ThorpeOrinoco Rd. Agribusiness manager Ashley Peter has been farming in the Dovedale area for over 30 years and says he is seriously considering putting in surveillance cameras around his property. “Poaching has always been a problem but the incidences are increasing and they now have more hi-tech night vision equipment and sophisticated guns,” says Ashley. Not only is he worried about the loss of stock and income but the issue of safety too. “I take the kids out spotlighting but I have got to be extra

cerns of the rural community. “The law used to be that unlawful hunting incurred a $500 penalty and the courts were constrained by that penalty. That has all changed now, if found guilty of unlawful hunting or death of stock, you could receive up to two years imprisonment and a $10,000 fine for an individual or $100,000 fine for a corporation”, says Rob.

Looking for Nelson’s smartest Those with an IQ “taller than average” took their chances at getting into Mensa as they attended a testing session on Saturday. Mensa is open to anybody who scores in the top two percent in a fluid intelligence test. Judith Tuckwell, testing coordinator for Nelson, says she always noticed she had to “edit” her conversations heavily before joining Mensa in the late 1960s. “When I joined Mensa I discovered that, when I am enthusiastic about something, I can overwhelm other people. When I was actually in a Mensa group I suddenly realised that I could say exactly what I liked and I would get a response that I had only dreamt of getting before. It’s a bit like a horse being let out of a stable going for a gallop, and I can just go for it.” Judith, now in her 70s, was the 27th Mensan in New Zealand. She started a social group in the Hawkes Bay before moving to Nelson. “That is what I’d like to create in Nelson. I’d love to have a mixed group. Mixed ages, mixed interests and the delight of the conversations.” There are around 400 Mensans in New

There is no requirement to join Mensa other than scoring in the top two percent of an IQ test. Darren Stevenson is the second Nelson member, joining nine years ago in his 30s. He says there were around 20 members in the city at the time.

BABY BONANZA: Steve and Charlie Thomas with six-monthold twins, Sam and Summer, exploring the Plunket Baby Bonanza on Saturday at the Hope Hall. The event is held twice yearly and is Plunket Nelson’s major fundraising activity. The event is the perfect opportunity for parents to sell on their second-hand baby clothes, toys and other gear to new parents in the community, while Plunket uses the money collected from door sales to fund their programmes such as playgroup and parenting education. The event has been run for over 15 years. Photo: Jessie Johnston.



SNOW: Snow is already falling at Rainbow Ski Area with 10cm at the top of the hill, and marketing and events coordinator Georgie TudorJones says it’s sticking around. “Last year, we had no snow in April and only a little bit in May, so it is a definite good sign for the season.” The ski area is due to open on July 4. BUSINESS TO PROMOTE CONCERTS: A new business venture has been launched in the hope of bringing live international music acts to Nelson. Showcase Nelson was originated by Nelson business consultant Stu Allan, who proposed an annual event, commencing in February 2016. Suggested music artists include Annie Lennox, Mark Knopfler, Bryan Adams, Peter Gabriel, Van Morrison, Bryan Ferry and Simply Red. MOULDY PEACHES: A Nelson mother was “disgusted” to find a can of peaches that her daughter opened for dessert were so mouldy it was just a green mess. Kayla Heath says the can was purchased just weeks earlier and did not have an expiry date printed on it. BURNING CAR FOUND DOWN BANK: A burning car with human remains in it was found down a bank near the start of the Whangamoa Reserve on Sunday afternoon. Both Nelson and Hira fire trucks attended the scene along with a large number of police. The incident was first reported by Nelson Live. The car was lifted from the bank by a crane on Monday afternoon and the body will undergo a post mortem examination which police hope will confirm the identity of the deceased woman. Police say DNA testing may be required to confirm the identity.

Wayne completed his final career move nine years ago when Placemakers closed its Queen St site and relocated to Saxton Rd where he continued his role as trade sales manager. Although Wayne says “wood is still wood”, he has seen a number of big changes in the timber and hardware trade over the last 40 years. The introduction of computerised cutting, pre-nailed frame and trusses and an explosion in the range of “products that provide a solution for every building problem”, have made building faster and easier. “When I started, they were selling wet timber in packs with mixed lengths. Now everything is kiln dried and cut to set lengths and you’d never build a house without prefabricated

frames and trusses. “In the old days a builder really would build a house. He’d pitch the roof and cut the framing - he’d do everything. “These days builders just fit a house together which is sad but it’s just the modern way. Time is money and all these changes mean they can build a house really quickly now.” Wayne says he will miss working with all the great people in the timber and hardware trade and building industry but hints that he may not have finished quite yet. “I haven’t thought about what I’ll do when I’ve finished. I just want to wind down and get my thoughts together but I’m sure there are some opportunities out there - I still have some petrol left in the tank.”

The Kaiteriteri general store has been pulled down with a new one to be built before the summer.

New general store for Kaiteriteri Monique Bergman Holiday makers will be able to enjoy brand new facilities next summer with stage two of the Kaiteriteri Recreation Reserve redevelopment underway. In January of 1936, a small parcel of land was set aside as public domain for camping at Kaiteriteri and placed under the oversight of the Kaiteriteri Recreation Reserve Board. They are responsible for managing the Kaiteriteri Beach Motor Camp, local store, café and restaurant. Stage two of the Kaiteriteri Recreation Reserve redevelopment has commenced with the old store being demolished. “We hope that people will enjoy it more and the changes will tidy up the flow of traffic and will bring people together in one central area,” says Chris Hawkes, chairman of the Kaiteriteri Recreation Reserve Board. The land for the new Kaiteriteri store has been dug out and filled making way for the foundations to be laid. The plans involve a new general store located on a similar footprint to the old store with around eight motel units above. The area between the store and the cafe out to the road will also be developed with a pedestrian only

courtyard at the same level as the existing cafe deck. Tourism concession booths will be situated in this area in addition to outside furniture. The petrol pumps will be relocated to the back of the new carpark and there are also some changes to the cafe to facilitate service into the courtyard. The surrounding area will also receive a makeover with grounds around the lagoon developed and a boardwalk constructed. “The new landscaping will make use of the area far better than it is now, there will be more green spaces and native trees,” says Chris. Stage one of the redevelopment was completed in November last year and included a new administration block with reception, offices, first aid room, staff amenities, a caretaker’s flat and a conference room for up to 50 people. Two temporary portacom buildings have been established in the main carpark area beside the playground and stock a limited range of products and will remain until the new store is finished. Fuel will not be available for at least three months while it is relocated to the main carpark. IMB Construction Ltd of Nelson are the contractors of the rebuild which is due to be completed by the end of November this year.

Duck hunters, from left, Niki Davey, Bill O’Leary, Kelly Diskin and Mark Burdass with the results of a successful morning in the Moutere Valley. Photo: Lawson Davey.

Duck hunters have mixed results Opening weekend was a mixed one for duck shooters with ducks giving them the slip in early morning fog that shrouded inland areas and flying high and out of range in clear blue skies on the coast. But Nelson Marlborough Fish and Game acting manager Lawson Davey says the ducks didn’t escape unscathed with hunters who were in the “right place” getting their bag limits. “Some did pretty well while others struggled,” Lawson says. “We were ranging around Springs Junction and it was very foggy so the ducks were flying high and couldn’t see the decoys. “I spoke to a hunter who’d been out on the Waimea Estuary who said there were reasonable numbers of birds about, but due to the fine calm weather most were flying

pretty high. But then we saw one pond in Maruia where the hunters had got their limit by 10am.” Lawson says hunters were well behaved with rangers, who this year were joined by police officers, only seizing one shotgun from a hunter without a licence who was using illegal lead shot. “We haven’t had the police come along with us for a few years so it was good to get them out there. They were checking for firearms licences and to make sure there were no issues with alcohol. Lawson says the number of hunters shooting around the region was down this year with many of them deciding to shoot on the West Coast or Canterbury. There are about 900 game bird shooting licence holders in the Nelson-Tasman region.

Study grant helps local to ‘live her dream’ As a young mother, Raylene Stringer had to ditch her dream to become a nurse, but ten years on she’s ready for another crack at it. Raylene decided that studying to be a nurse while raising a young child and paying the bills was too much to handle, so she instead turned to a career as a vet nurse. But with her son now grown up, Raylene has cut all luxuries from her life to head back to study full time and live her dream. “It’s hard, but I love it. I’ve given up a lot, the sacrifice is huge, but I’m not scared of a challenge.” The full time course at NMIT takes three years to complete, but it’s not just the stud-

ies that are hard work, juggling finances at home is just as tough. “I’ve had to tighten my belt on everything, the only thing I’ve allowed myself to keep is my gym membership. Everything else has gone. I gave up coffee, although there is still instant sometimes.” Due to her tight budget, Raylene says she looked around for what scholarships she was eligible to apply for. She came across the Soroptomist International of Waimea Scholarship Grant and, after a gruelling selection process, was picked to receive $2500 from the group. Member Helen Bywater says there were 24 applicants this year and it was the tough-

NEWS we’ve got in brief

TEST DRIVE FOR CHARITY: Taking a Ford for a test drive at the Blue Oval Road Show at MS Ford in Nelson this weekend will help a Nelson charity and could prove to be a winning experience for the driver. MS Ford will donate $50 to the Nelson Regional Breast and Gynaecological Cancer Trust for every test drive taken on Saturday as part of its Go Further For Your Community Day. On Friday, every test driver goes into the nationwide draw to win either a Fiesta Trend, Focus Ambiente Hatch or EcoSport Trend. The promotion will be held at MS Ford at 157 Haven Rd on Friday and Saturday from 10am to 3pm. MOTHER’S DAY RUN: The Jennian Homes Mother’s Day 5km Fun Run and Walk is being held this Sunday starting at 10am. Registration for the event, which is a fundraiser for the Heart Foundation’s Go Red for Women campaign, is from 9am to 9.45am at 6 Champion Rd. Tickets can be purchased by phoning 0800 JENNIAN or online at jennian.co.nz


us about Raylene is that she knows where she’s going. She’s being very brave going back to full time study and she had a clear vision about where she was heading.” The money can be used for anything that will help with her studies, says Helen, from paying power bills to study costs or even a dentist’s bill. Raylene says, when she found out that she’d won the scholarship she was delighted. “I was so excited. I laughed, I cried, all those emotions. It was amazing.” As part of the deal, Raylene must pay a couple of visits to the soroptomists throughout the year and let them know how she’s going with her study.

Nelson Airport upgrade, what would you like to see? Some better system for collecting bags etc other than outside in the cold and rain. Antoinette Wood. Lower airfares. Karyn Thomas.

Forget the terminal. Lets get a longer runway so we can land bigger planes. Geoff Trevathan.


Improved baggage claim and longer runway. Our region is screaming for that. Nothing wrong with the terminal. Andrea Grocott.

Better access, by that I mean direct flights to some of the smaller places in NZ. Jo Cotton. Definitely another cafe or cafe contractor that opens earlier, or stays open until the last flight leaves. On a Sunday night closes at 7, I think. I've been delayed a couple of times for a hour or so, and they close the cafe leaving you with nothing to eat or drink. Jeff McLaren.

pedestrians, taxis and rental cars. Vicki Reid. A bigger area for short-term pick up and drop off. Sue Sara. Spend the money on a longer run way. Some directs to / from Aussie would be great for Nelson all around. We don't need a flashy terminal, it's all good how it is. Diana McClelland. I actually don't mind the baggage claim or the airport as it is. If the upgrade leads to increased fares then please leave as is! Cheaper fares and more destinations are what we need. Rachel Boyack. Secure, safe, children's play area suitable for under 5s. I have often ended up stuck with my two year old waiting for delayed flights at Air NZ, it's a nightmare. Jezamine Dunlea. The baggage claim area is awesome. Leave it like that. Lauren Rasmussen. SPCA pours money into desexing cats. Do you think it's a good idea? Make it available to everybody. Charge those without "hardship cards" a little more, but even those without cards struggle. I know of a few people who can't afford to get their pets desexed even though they don't claim

benefits. Carole Krimchanski-Cooper. Totally all for it. I think it's a very generous offer SPCA are doing. Jo B Phil Borland. If you can't afford an animal, don't get one simply because it's lovely. The SPCA are helping sort the problem that others have created. Harsh, I know, soo many animals suffer needlessly. Great the SPCA are there for animals in need. Karen Rait. This is awesome, but it seems like people think this should be the norm. The SPCA are not there to pay for your pets. If you can't afford basic health care then don't get pets in the first place. This act of kindness from the SPCA will help prevent thousands of more unwanted animals but it is a privilege, not a right. It's awful how something is offered to those in need, out of the goodness of their hearts, but then people instantly want more. Natalie Street. Yes. But it needs to be fair. Nikky Lohmann. Its great! But I think people need to really think about the real cost of a 'free' kitten. Desexing needs to be a priority. Sarah Brown. To have your say on any local issue, email editorial@nelsonweekly.co.nz

Campers nearly all sold

Rockin’ Rod’s ball kicked to Richmond man A Richmond real estate agent, couldn’t believe his luck in scoring some of Rod Stewart’s hot property. Brendon Houliston has always been a Rod Stewart fan, the first album he ever purchased was Blondes Have More Fun, back in 1977. He had to wait quite a few years though to see the rocker in concert but it was well worth the wait. Along with his usual moves, Stewart also managed to show off some impressive footwork by kicking around 30 signed soccer balls into the crowd during the song, Stay With Me, and Brendon was lucky enough to catch one. “I was pretty wrapped,

I caught the ball on the full standing up and I gave Rod the thumbs up and he gave me the thumbs up back.” Brendon received several offers for the ball, for around $500 on the night but decided that he is going to put the signed ball inside a glass case for display at his home. “You don’t often get something like that from someone like him, it is a great bonus to take away with me as there are no opportunities to get autographs,” says Brendon. He says the 70 year old veteran can still rock a crowd. “He is prancing around the stage like a 20 year old, he has still got the moves and the voice,” says Brendon.

HOPE RANGE AERIAL POSSUM CONTROL OPERATION Vector Free Marlborough Ltd wishes to advise the public of its intention to aerially apply the toxin Sodium Fluoroacetate (1080) for the purpose of controlling possums in the Hope Range area. The operation is being undertaken on behalf of OSPRI which runs the TBfree programme to protect local farms from tuberculosis infection.

Control Area: The Hope Range treatment area spans over 13,634 hectares of the Kahurangi National Park, near the Murchison District, on the eastern and western faces of the Hope Range. The southern boundary is Mount Murchison and the northern boundary is the head of the Hope River catchment. Public access to the treatment area is either via Owen Valley East Road, or along State Highway 6 through to the Tadmor Saddle. A detailed map of the treatment area may be viewed by appointment at the office of Vector Free Marlborough Ltd (see contact below), the Tasman office of TBfree, McPherson Street, Richmond or the local Department of Conservation office in St Arnaud between 9:00am and 4:00pm weekdays.

Commencement Date: The operation will commence with the application of non-toxic cereal pre-feed pellets. Following completion of pre-feeding, the application of cereal pellets containing 1080 will commence on or after 20 May 2015, weather dependent.

Bait Description: Pre-feed: Non-toxic cereal based pellet, approximately 30mm long, non-dyed (brown in colour) – first aerial application Toxic bait: Cereal based pellet, approximately 30mm long, dyed green with a toxic loading of 1.5g/kg sodium fluoroacetate (1080) – second aerial application. Warning signs will be posted at all main public entry points: Follow the instructions on the poison warning signs.

It is an offence to remove any signs posted for public information. All relevant consents have been granted - refer to: •Department Of Conservation – Permission ID: •Public Health Service – Permission ID: •Tasman District Council Resource Consent - Permission ID:

Precautions: The public are reminded of the danger that toxic baits and possum carcasses pose, particularly to children and dogs. Children should be kept under strict supervision in the operational area. Dogs should be kept under strict control at all times and not have access to, or be taken into the operational area as they are particularly susceptible to 1080 and poisoned carcasses. Wild animals should not be sold or taken for eating from within or adjacent to this area until the area is declared clear of pesticides.

Get Ready for Winter! The magic solution for a warmer, dryer, quieter home. Imagine enjoying significantly reduced condensation, more efficient heating, fewer UV rays to damage furniture and chattels, and a quieter home. It’s all possible with MagicSeal, which boasts all the benefits of double glazing at a fraction of the price. MagicSeal is a discreet second layer applied to existing window frames using a magnetic sealing system. The MagicSeal secondary glazing is fabricated from premium quality, UV stabilised acrylic with the frame colour-matched to existing joinery (even timber finishes). It is fitted to the inside of the window to trap a layer of still air between it and glass. This trapped airspace reduces the rate of convective heat loss, and acts as a barrier to reduce sound transmission. Heat losses through single glazed windows can be up to 48 percent. Magicseal acrylic panels can prevent the transfer of temperature up to five times better than glass. MagicSeal was invented and

developed in New Zealand and since it’s launch in 1987, it has become an international market leader in secondary glazing. Tasman Holdings Nelson Ltd is offering a property opportunity that home buyers may not see again. After building eight brand new homes on a private street off Tahunanui’s Golf Road, just two remain to be scooped up for unbelievably good value. It is extremely rare to find new homes on the Nelson market under $400,000 and due to the rising cost of building; it’s a price that Tasman Holdings won’t be repeating. With winter on its way, these homes are brilliant for keeping out the cold and damp. They are constructed to the very latest building requirements including double glazing, ultra low energy LED lights and full insulation. Located in a sunny, friendly street and only minutes walk from the beach, now would be a good time to pick up

The Nutra-Life Ester-C Winter Family Pack contains Ester-C 500mg + Echinacea and Ester-C For Kids, both in 60 chewable tablet packs. Nutra-Life Ester-C 500mg + Echinacea combines Ester C, a patented and easily-absorbable form of Vitamin C, with Echinacea in a pleasanttasting, tooth-friendly chewable tablet. Ester C is such an effective form of Vitamin C because it is absorbed into the blood stream faster and held in the body longer than ordinary Vitamin C. Ester C is patented and scientifically supported, and these chewable tablets are non-acidic and have been proven to be “tooth friendly”, a benefit for people who prefer chewable Vitamin C tablets. Echinacea has demonstrated increased phagocytic activity in animal and human studies. It has a long history of use to maintain immune function and help prevent infections.

SPORT Warm ups are over, netballers ready for season www.shuttersport.co.nz

Nelson Netball premier grade gets underway at Saxton Stadium on Thursday night with teams having a “warm up” of two shortened games before the season proper begins the following week. On paper, Richmond Glass looks to be the team to beat as they set out to defend their title. Mikaela Powick is the only loss, as she is now at university while a noteworthy acquisition is Jess Bygate who has transferred from Jacks. Jess will combine to form a formidable shooting duo with Nicky Rampton, while promising youngster Aimee Book will also bolster the offensive lineup. The remainder of Richmond’s roster is tried and true with a wealth of talent and experience across the court. Richmond have had the benefit of game time at the Super Club Competition in Christchurch in early March, where they faced teams who played with more speed, however they were disappointed with their outings in Nelson the following week. Coach Kathleen Thornalley is looking forward to the eightteam competition, however, she does have to contend with the

unavailability of her three Nelson Sparks basketball players in the coming weeks. Runners-up from last year, Jacks OPD have lost the services of ace shooter Ani Waitai, although Welsh shooter Rebecca James has returned to the side. Jess Drummond has returned to Nelson from Christchurch and is likely to make her presence felt through the mid court. Jacks claimed the Geraldine Hodgson Tournament trophy last weekend, when they scraped through with a one goal win over Prices Pharmacy. Jacks will not be taking anyone lightly as anyone is a threat on any given day. Kalyssa Rasmussen will go from being the “baby” of Waimea College to their most experienced player all within the space of a year, as she is the only remaining player from 2014. There is a distinct legacy the girls in green and gold have to uphold and with the team stacked with talent, there is no doubt the new

Photo: Evan Barnes/Shuttersport. squad will relish the opportunities that playing in the top grade will present. With the increase to an eightteam competition, the Stoke Club will have two teams. As beaten

finalists in Premier 2, Stoke Sun City Panel and Paint will join club mates Stoke NBS who finished third in 2014. The NBS team has the nucleus of last year’s lineup and is quite ver-

satile while Stoke Sun City Panel and Paint have four players from last year who are making the step to the elite grade. Stoke Sun City face a baptism of fire when they meet Richmond in their first competition game as it is a seeded draw. Prices Pharmacy will also have two teams in the competition. Mandy Whiting is again calling the shots for the A team which has a similar look about it, with former players, Shar Lowe (injury) Christta Burrows (overseas) and Dayna Whiting (study), returning. Tom Alesena has the reins of Prices Black and has a fairly new team to work with Shevaun Collier and Kelly Jenkins are expected to lead the offensive end. McKenzie Taikato is the experience in the mid court and Bex Watene will call the shots in the defensive third. With three returning from last year’s Premier 2 winning side, Nelson College for Girls are fortunate in having leaders in each third with Abbey Frankin in the shooting, Charlotte Timms in the mid and Merekara McGuinnetty in the defensive third.

The Hope Community Church’s week long Hopefest starts next Saturday May 16 with the incredibly popular Big Share Fair. The church held their first Hopefest in 2009 and it was such a success that it has become a biennial event. And it’s not surprising that it is the most popular event at Hopefest with the church collecting hundreds of donated items to give away to the community. Senior Pastor Donald Irvine says Hopefest is all about giving back to the community and the Big Share Fair provides a generous and fun format for doing just that. People are issued with free Hope Notes when they walk in the door of the church and can “spend” the money on the wide range of items at the fair. “We get most of the items donated by our church family but things come from near and far. The donated items extend to food, goods and services either available on the day or by vouchers that can be redeemed at a time to suit both parties. Vouchers can be for the services of a handyman, babysitter or even a meal cooked for your family. Everyone gives so generously so we can give back to the community” Donald says. The Big Share Fair will be held at the church 114 Ranzau Rd West

in Hope on Saturday May 16 from 9:30am – 12:30pm. Hopefest’s theme of giving to the community doesn’t stop there with the church holding a free Charity Quiz night on Friday May 22. Instead of keeping the prizes, the winning teams will get to give a total prize pool of $3000, donated by the church, to the Nelson Marlborough Hospice, Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter, St John, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Red Cross Refugee Services. The quiz starts at 7:30pm. Hopefest also includes three free seminars from Tuesday May 19 to Thursday May 21 (see advertisement opposite for details) The seminars start at 7:30pm with no booking required. Hopefest concludes with a free concert featuring Elvis impersonator Mark Borg from Australia along with local supporting artists on Saturday May 23 starting at 7:30pm followed by a Sunday morning church service on May 24 at 10am with guest speaker Jim Hickey. For more information on Hopefest go to the website www.hopefest.co.nz or phone the church on 544 6628. Business Update. Adv.

Richmond striker ‘will score goals’ Ben Harris is hoping his stint with Richmond Athletic will be a giveand-take relationship. He wants to give a few tips to the club’s youngsters and take plenty of goals. Either way it’s a good scenario for FreshChoice Richmond, which will welcome the young English striker into its first team for the first time this Saturday. Ben, 24, has watched a couple of Richmond games since arriving to Nelson last month and likes what he sees. “They give it 100 per cent. The skill level may not be what I’m used to but they give it their all and that’s all you can ask.” Ben says he should score a bucketload of goals during his two month stay with the club. “I will bully defences. I should be scoring three goals a game but I won’t say that. I’d be happy with a goal a game.” That may look arrogant in print but Ben says he doesn’t mean it that way. “I’m a confident player, definitely not an arrogant player.” Ben plays in the Isthmian League in England, three tiers down from the professional League Two. He was injured half way through

andrew@nelsonweekly.co.nz last season and was told to rest. As a self-employed builder that meant time off work as well. So he decided to visit his mother in Auckland. A connection between Richmond’s first division coach Matt Campbell and Ben’s UK manager tempted Ben south and he says he’s already enjoying Nelson. “It’s beautiful, and this is coming into winter? I could get used to this.” Matt says while Ben will provide a boost to the fortunes of the first team on the pitch, he’s hoping for positive effects off it too. “Ben knows his role here and it’s just as much about working with the players and passing on some of his knowledge. The league he comes from is a really high standard so he has a lot that he can pass on.” Ben says he’ll return to the UK around July and try to break into the Conference Premier grade. On the field, Richmond sit sixth in the Nelson Bays Football first division and will host Wakefield at Jubilee Park this Saturday from 3pm.

Waimea Old Boys Rugby

Waimea expecting tough battle in Picton

Simon Bloomberg Star and Garter Waimea Old Boys are expecting another tough forward encounter when they play Waitohi in their Tasman Trophy club rugby game at Endeavour Park in Picton this Saturday. Waimea Old Boys prevailed 30-17 in a hard-fought battle against Blenheim team Moutere in last Saturday’s game and coach Mark Milne is expecting more of the same when they travel to Picton. Waitohi has a big, physical pack like Moutere and

Mark says it will be important to gain parity up front. “Waitohi have a big pack and they are going to be even harder at home. They have lost some player from last year but they’ll still be a good side.” Mark says he was pleased with last week’s performance against Moutere and will be looking for his players to continue with that improvement. Waimea led 15-7 at half time against Moutere, before centre Luca Roden and substitute winger Talor Simpson-Brown scored in the second to seal the win.

“I was really pleased with our structure against Moutere - it was probably the best we’ve played all year. We created a lot of opportunities and although we didn’t finish off that well, that was partly because they defended really well.” Mark says they have been focusing on the ruck and clean-out at training this week, as well as “stepping up our defence”. The game kicks-off at 3pm. Waimea Old Boys B beat Tapawera 49-3 in their division two game last Saturday.

JAB UNDER WAY: Waimea Old Boys junior players took to the field on Saturday when the club’s 19 JAB teams played their season-openers at grounds around the region. Waimea has 270 junior players in teams from under-six to under-13, making it the biggest JAB club in Nelson. JAB president Jeremy Salton says the teams are well supported by enthusiastic parents with many of the coaches staying with a side right through the grades. All of Waimea Old Boys JAB players will be at Jubilee Park on June 27 when Waimea has its Club Day. Pictured is Waimea Under-6 Red’s Reuben Sanders playing against Nelson at Neale Park on Saturday.
