Record rolls for Waimea schools

Simon Bloomberg

Tasman schools are continuing to grow with Waimea College running out of classrooms after a record 1555 students enrolled, up 20 from last year, while Garin College’s roll has increased from 490 to 505. Murchison Area School has also increased its starting roll from 120 last year to 133

this year, although Tapawera has declined “25 to 30 students over the last five years” to start with 192 students. Some primary schools are also growing with Brightwater starting with “over 280” pupils compared to “250 to 260” last year. Waimea College principal Scott Haines says their increasing roll means classrooms are at a premium, creating a nightmare for the staff organising student timetables.

Waimea has also had to turn away 43 students from outside their zone, resulting in some “very difficult discussions with their families”. “The real issue, for us, is we are fully at capacity in terms of our buildings,” Scott says. “It’s been a real challenge for our time-tablers to fit everyone in. “Our office staff tell me they had about that many inquiries again from families

living outside our zone. We would like to take them because they want to come to Waimea for good reasons, like their parents work in Richmond or they live just outside our zone, but we can’t. “I really feel for those students and their families. It’s difficult but we only get funding for our property budget based on the


In a wheelchair for 6km muddy adventure race Andrew Board A motorcycle accident in the late 80s left Nelson man David Trotter in a wheelchair with severe head injuries and struggling to speak. Improvements in strength and coordination have been slow, but David’s appetite for adventure has been anything but. He loves to skydive and in a few months he will take on one of the region’s toughest races, the 6km Wairau Warrior Obstacle Race. David has been going to Wairau Body Coaching Systems in the Wakatu Estate for seven years to help build strength and muscle, and last year watched the inaugural Wairau Warrior race at Happy Valley. After the race he said he wanted to climb over one of the A-frame obstacles. He couldn’t and his frustration

Wheelchair won’t stop warrior FROM PAGE 1 gave Wairau owner and race organiser Greg Witika, along with David’s support worker Jesse Clifton, an idea: why not sign him up to the whole race. “And we’ve been working towards it since then,” says Greg. A support team of five will push and pull David’s wheelchair over the muddy course, help him overcome more than 20 obstacles including over walls, under the barbed wire and through a river. Greg says David’s determination is inspirational. “David’s got obstacles every single day but that doesn’t hold him back. It also shows others that you can push past those barriers.” He says David will head out before the rest of the pack and he’s hoping that as people pass them they’ll have a few nice words of encouragement for him.

One friend burst into tears when we told her what he was doing. - Barbara Trotter.

David’s mum Barbara says she’s seen a huge improvement over the past few years but doing this race was still a shock. “He went to the gym to learn how to climb this A-frame obstacle last year and when he came back they said he was signed up for the race. I said ‘what?!’ “People who know him are really surprised. They say ‘wow’. One friend burst into tears when we told her what he was doing.” David has spent the past year getting used to the type of obstacles he will encounter on race day in early April. He says the training has been “ace”.

But, there is one but. David cannot complete the muddy course in his standard wheelchair, he needs an all-terrain wheelchair. A supplier in Dunedin has found an ex-display chair that he can sell them for $6000. The same chair normally retails for $13,000. Barbara has set up a Givealittle page to help raise the money. So far $2000 has been pledged. Greg says once the chair is bought it will be made available for anyone in the community who may need it. “We’re going to leave it here and if people need it to go to the beach or to maybe do this race next year, it’ll be here for them.” To pledge money for the wheelchair, visit www.givealittle.co.nz and search for David Trotter.

number of our in-zone students.” Although Garin’s roll has increased by 15, relieving principal Sheila Grainger says they don’t have any issues with staffing levels or classrooms. Murchison Area School principal Tina Johnson says their increase reverses a trend of declining rolls in rural schools although she considers that the increase may just be a one-off. Tapawera’s Kelvin Woodley says the gradual decrease in their roll reflects the merger of smaller farms into bigger dairy farms operated by fewer staff. “Our roll is trending down which is simply what most other rural schools around the country are doing. Everytime a farm converts to dairy

we lose families and students.” Brightwater School’s roll has jumped from 250 to “over 280” which principal Gerald Baldwin says “is the biggest roll in our history”. “Brightwater is a good place for young families to come and that means our school is getting bigger. We had 14 new students on day one and have another 14 starting later this term. Henley had 42 new students when school started last week and principal John Armstrong says their roll will hit 550 by the middle of the year. Richmond’s roll is also steady with principal Tim Brenton saying they will reach 500 for the second time in the school’s history later this year. Wakefield principal Peter Verstappen says they also have similar numbers to last year with “around 250 students.”

Weka getting caught in possum traps

A forestry company has reacted quickly to concerns that weka are being caught in possum traps set in commercial forests around the Nelson region, by removing the traps and ensuring trappers adopt new methods. Last week, groups of walkers found a number of weka caught in legal foot-hold traps set in commercial forests in the Richmond Hills. The traps had been set on the ground for possums, which destroy seedling pine trees, but had inadvertently caught some weka. Forestry company Hancock Forest Management reacted immediately, instructing its trapping contractor to remove the traps and initiating a review of their trapping policies. “We take the wellbeing of native animals in our forests very seriously,” Hancock’s John Moorhead says. John says they instructed their contractor, Action Forest Management, which manages trapper access permits, to contact all trappers and ensure they use Department of Conservation approved traps, set off the ground in weka areas. Trapping contract manager Paul Fleming says the eight trappers he manages will now be setting the traps on

Paul says the problem has only really surfaced in the last year or so after weka numbers increased dramatically as a result of voluntary groups trapping predatory pests around Nelson. “The traps are legal and permitted and we were setting them away from the road to keep clear of walkers, but they were still catching the occasional weka. We have never had a regulation for anything like this because there have never been that many weka around. “When I started trapping 15 years ago you hardly ever saw one, but now they are everywhere so we need to change the

way we do things. I spoke to an engineer this week and he designed a system to set the traps off the ground.” One of the walkers who found weka caught in the traps, Sarlinda MacMillan, says she is delighted the problem is being quickly resolved. She says they were “really distressed” when they found the weka caught in the traps, especially when so many dedicated volunteer groups were working hard to protect native birds around Nelson. “There was one dead weka by one of the traps, but we found two alive and let them out,” Saralinda says. “It was really sad though because one of the weka had its mate hanging around waiting for it get out.”

BMX riders gathered at the Tahunanui track last week to remember local free-style mountainbiker Kelly McGarry. Photo: Grant Stirling.

Tributes flow for local legend The tributes keep flowing for Nelson free-style mountainbiking legend Kelly McGarry, with hundreds turning out to a memorial service in his hometown of Wakefield on Monday following a tribute ride at the Tahuna BMX track last week. Kelly, 33, tragically died last week after suffering a cardiac arrest while biking on the Fernhill Loop track near Queenstown. Family members, friends and bikers farewelled Kelly at the Wakefield Recreation Reserve in an emotional memorial on Monday. Kelly’s father Nick says the Wakefield Recreation Reserve was a fitting backdrop for the memorial because Kelly and his brother Matt and friends

built their first BMX track in bush next to the reserve. The memorial was attended by Kelly’s partner Samantha Hitchcock who was followed by a peloton of riders as she drove a Chevrolet truck carrying Kelly’s casket across the reserve’s grounds. The Tahuna BMX track was also a fitting venue for last Wednesday’s memorial ride attended by about 60 riders. Nelson photographer Grant Stirling says he remembers seeing “a tall, skinny kid” from Wakefield launching his bike into the stratosphere at the track. Kelly was a keen BMX rider before switching to mountainbikes and becoming one of the

world’s top professional freestyle riders. “I remember the first time I saw him on a bike was at the BMX track at Tahuna,” Grant says. “I was photographing a wedding and we were having a break when I saw a “tall, skinny kid” on a BMX bike doing this amazing stuff. Kelly, who attended Wakefield School, Waimea Intermediate and Waimea College before pursuing a career as a professional free-rider, backflipped to fame in the Red Bull Rampage in Utah in 2013. The GoPro video of Kelly’s electrifying, and now famous, backflip over a 21.9m canyon received over 28 million views on YouTube.

Air quality meets 2016 deadline

The Tasman District Council has met the government’s 2016 deadline for reducing air pollution and is on track to meet even stricter air quality standards by 2020. Last year air pollution in Richmond breached the National Environmental Standard for Air Quality on three occasions – a result bettered only in 2014, when there were just two breaches. The highest air pollution level recorded last winter was also the lowest annual maximum since recording began in 2000. Environment and Planning Committee chairman Stuart Bryant said the council had met the government deadline of 2016 for reducing air pollution, which allows three breaches of the national standard a year. “ R i c h m o n d ’s air quality has been steadily improving since One of the three bad air 2003 and we’re days in Richmond last on track to meet winter. the even stricter 2020 deadline. From then on, we won’t be allowed to breach the air quality standard more than once a year. “During a normal winter we should be able to meet that – although exceptionally cold, still winters may pose a challenge.” In 2000, the air quality standard was breached 45 times in Richmond and the highest pollution reading that year reached 111 micrograms of pollution particles (PM10) per cubic metre of air. Last year, the maximum hit 57 - the national standard for PM10 is 50. “The quality of the air we breathe is important to our health. The main contributors to air pollution are wood fires used to heat homes in winter,” Stuart says. “As well as the rules we have in place for the installation of woodburners in Richmond, we’ve been educating homeowners about how to make sure their fireplaces are operating well, and the importance of the supply and use of good, dry firewood. “Those efforts, combined with policing complaints about smoky chimneys, is making a real difference as Richmond’s air quality was once very poor and has improved immensely.”

ACTORS WANTED: Rhianna and Saramea Waterman dressed in some of the costumes for Prince Mabon - The quest for Rhiannon and the Dark Lord’s Curse. Theatre director Saramea is on the hunt for some local talent to feature in her latest production. Saramea says she is looking for 20-30 experienced and unexperienced boys, men, girls and women. “If a guy wants to bring out the hero or warrior in him, shout a lot, throw things around and wield a sword, then this is his opportunity but it’s not just the boys who get to wield a sword, the female warriors are awesome and they get to fight too.” Auditions are being held on February 13-14, for more information, contact Saramea on 021 0584726.

Catching an average-sized snapper isn’t usually cause for too much celebration, but reeling in the average snapper next weekend will win some lucky fisherman or woman a brand new boat. The Tasman Bay Snapper Classic is back and bigger than ever this year. The fishing competition has attracted more than $30,000 in prizes, including the $12,000 DNA 300 Dinghy Watercraft Trailer boat, which also comes with a Honda motor and trailer. Organiser Troy Dando says it’s the biggest prize they’ve ever had. “It’s massive, it’s a whole boat, and not just a boat but with a brand new motor and trailer, it’s bloody amazing really.” The Tasman Bay Snapper Classic is open to all fishermen and women and is on Saturday, February 20. Teams of four have from 5am until 4pm to catch whatever they can. There are prizes for the heaviest 15 snapper, heaviest three gurnard, kahawai and blue cod, and for the largest kingfish. Among the prizes is cash. People can upload their photos of the their catch throughout the day to nelsonlive.co.nz, the best three photos as judged by the website’s editor will win $150, $100 and $50 cash respectively. To upload the photos, people need to download the nelsonlive.co.nz app. Before weighting-in and prize-giving, a fish auction will be held at the Speights Ale House. Anyone from the public can come and bid on a fish which will then be filleted onsite. All money raised from the fish auction will go to the Nelson Coastguard. The teams cup is also up for grabs for the four heaviest fish combined. The Tasman Bay Snapper Classic is open to anyone who can form a team of four. Troy is expecting around 300 entries and says people don’t even need a boat. “You could go fishing off the wharf or the beach and catch an averagesized snapper. That might be enough to win you a new boat.” For more information, see www. tasmanbaysnapperclassic.co.nz

Temporary home for school of music

Kate Russell

It may be closed for redevelopment, but the Nelson School of Music is back in business for 2016 at a new temporary base on Collingwood St. Bright yellow musical notes on the footpath lead the way to the new premises tucked in behind the former Relationships Services building, which is just a stone’s throw away from the school. School of Music campaign manager Bob Bickerton says the base will see them through to the end of the school year until the $6.4 million redevelopment of the Nile St premises is complete. The former office building which, Bob says, came up after several suggested locations, boasts three studio rooms, a percussion room and an office. “We just looked around and when this came up we thought it would be perfect because it’s so close to the school,” he says. “Now we’re all moved in and the students are back. It’s worked out really well for us.” Bob says it’s been a “real community effort” to keep things going while the school has been closed, with many teachers teaching from their homes,

School of Music campaign manager Bob Bickerton outside its temporary base on Collingwood St. Photo: Kate Russell. and locals opening up their homes to some of the teachers, too. “It’s good to have the support – there’s a lot of community interest in what the school is doing and, in fact, student numbers climbed to 332 last year, which is pretty amazing. So, we’re definitely not idle. “We just want to let people know that we’re operational. One of the frustrations is that, because construction hasn’t started yet, people have been saying ‘what’s happening’? but, there’s a lot happening - it’s just behind the scenes at this stage.” Bob says they are hoping that the project will go to tender in

the next few weeks, and once the main contract is awarded the construction period will start. They are hoping to be back in the main building before the start of the next school year. Fundraising for the project is still going strong, and just before Christmas the school received a grant from the New Zealand Lottery Grants Board which boosted the fundraising appeal to $1.2 million. The school is launching a ‘sponsor a seat campaign’ at this weekend’s Opera in the Park. The new School of Music offices are at 142a Collingwood St. The office is open 1–5pm weekdays.

Fire fighters battle Aussie blaze

Five Nelson fire fighters joined the massive contingent of rural fire teams fighting wild fires in Tasmania last week. The Waimea Rural Fire Authority has provided one crew made up of two members of the Brightwater Voluntary Rural Fire Force, one member of the Tasman Voluntary Rural Fire Force and two members from the Nelmac rural fire crew. Lee Beloe, Nathan Palmer, Ashton Oliver, Brendan Jones and Sam Speight have been deployed to the Strathgordon fires in the mid-west of Tasmania. Waimea principal rural fire officer

Ian Reade says the the largest of the fires they are working on covers 4700 hectares, with a number of smaller fires in the surrounding area. “A lightning storm that went through on January 13 started the majority of the fires. In total, there are 73 fires currently burning in Tasmania.” The crews are staying in camps and being flown into the fire fighting zones by helicopter. They are working 12 to 14 hours a day for seven days then have two days rest before another seven days in the field - they will be away for about 20 days, Ian says.

Warriors’ signs nicked

WEDNESDAY 10 February 2016


KAI FEST: Siblings Eli, Tobias and Zoe Anderson’s toffee apples were selling like hot cakes at Monday’s International Kai Festival.

Support for Lewis Stanton: It's a simple disgrace, and we're all paying through the nose for the Nelson City Council's sheer incompetence with regard to what looks remarkably like a vendetta conducted against Lewis Stanton. Even the judge in court dismissed the case against him (we all paid for this), saying it looked too personal. It's time the council sorted out the mess they themselves have created - fancy trying to ban him from nearly everywhere in Nelson! And we are all being forced to pay for his pointless time in prison. Give him back his tent and his horse, and find somewhere where he can contribute, the way he used to. And it's time we had it out in the open - let's know the details of the deal the council is offering. J G Oliver. More work needed: Why do we keep hearing the same excuses from the NCC's works and infrastructure team about the neglect of remedial and improvement work that still hasn't been attended to, as it should have, after that last big storm and flooding? If they're not up to it, let's hear this. And what recompense is going to be offered to the Brook St grocer, for the consistent undermining of his business? Morag Woode.

to write this. Are you aware you can go onto the Nelson City Council website and, under ‘Quick Links’ near the top, is the heading ‘Get something fixed’. Complete the form and send it in to the Council and I have found whatever the problem, it gets sorted quite quickly. If after two weeks it hasn’t been, I just send a gentle reminder. This ‘fix-a-gram’ covers ‘anything around town that needs attention’ that you believe the council is responsible for. Lois Moreland. Stop the poison: Nelson ratepayers should consider that they are paying the $240,000 cost of the proposed indiscriminate operation to scatter brodifacoum at the Brook Sanctuary. This operation reveals that the Sanctuary is an environmental initiative in name only. The destruction of the most beautiful remaining stand of native beech forest on the Jenkins Hill Ridge to make way for the fence was another notorious action. Nelson council should stop spending our money on initiatives that harm the environment, and focus on our neglected infrastructure. Dan McGuire. More flights at Nelson Airport: This is great news for Nelson but, having been out to the airport four times in five days, trying to find a park is a real problem that needs to be addressed.

The Brightwater Wine and Food Festival is a celebration of local food, wine and beer that has the whole region talking. Each year organisers work hard to improve the event so it better caters to the crowds and 2016 is set to see the biggest festival yet. Self contained motor homes are being encouraged to stay overnight, for free, on both the Saturday and the Sunday, making it convenient for anyone to attend, not just locals. Kevin Gear of Richmond Rotary says they have had a fantastic response from motor home owners near and far, from the North and South Islands, which could mean record numbers for this year’s Brightwater Wine and Food Festival. Set amongst the vines of the beautiful Middle-Earth vineyard, the festival will also be showcasing a great lineup of local musicians including Kramit, Antoni Neal, Urban, Toms Field and Samba Del Sol, and with supervised children’s activities running throughout the festival, it will be a day out the whole family can enjoy. With the vineyard located right beside The Great Taste Cycle Trail, organisers are encouraging people to make their way to the festival

Schools are back… School is back and that means there will be more children out and about, especially in the mornings and afternoon. The basic message around schools is: slow down and look out for kids. In many places around Nelson electronic variable school speed limit signs will be turned back on. Reducing your speed to 40km/h provides for a much increased reaction time for a driver, meaning you can identify potential hazards and react much more quickly.

Pedestrian crossings are places where pedestrians should be able to cross the road in safety. Drivers need to slow down as they approach them and be prepared to stop. Students and families need to remember to use the correct place to safely cross the road outside the school. So be extra careful around schools and watch out for kids!

20 km/h past a stationary school bus Remember – the speed limit for passing a stationary school bus when children are getting on and off is 20 km per hour. This speed limit applies no matter which direction you are travelling in.

Drivers – school bus incidents can happen

on both high and low speed roads. However, the faster your vehicle is travelling, the more likely it is that a child will be killed if they are hit.

Parents – when dropping off or collecting

your child from the school bus, try to do it so that you are on the same side as the bus. This will cut out the need for your child to cross the road. Park your car well away from the bus stop or other children so you don’t block drivers, children’s or the bus driver’s visibility. Get out of your car and meet your child or walk with them to the designated bus stop.

Students – wait at the nominated bus stop

area and stand well back from the road edge. Bus stops have usually been chosen as a safer place to stop. After you have got off the bus wait as far away from the road edge as possible, until the bus has moved away. If you need to cross the road, wait until the bus has driven off and you can see clearly up and down the road.

Thank you.

There will be plenty of kids activities including a bouncy castle and car rides round the holiday park, while the army will be set up to answer any enquiries. There are heaps of prizes for the public to win too,

overnight for anyone that needs to leave their cars at the ale house. Sunday offers a second chance for the public to see the beauty of American muscle, all the way through to modern day automotive technology, and being the final day, the show will conclude with the much anticipated prize giving. The Nelson Motor Show features 40 trophies, from the traditional titles of Show Champion, and People’s Choice, to the more bizarre awards for, ‘work in progress’, ‘shit that’s different’ and ‘unique modifications’, to name a few. A variety of refreshments will be available for sale on the day too, with adult entry just $10 and show entrant

packed with entertainment in the form of the Nelson Motor Show Formal. Everyone’s welcome to attend, either put on a t-shirt and tie or go the whole hog in your formal attire and join in the fun at The Speights Ale House, where dinner at 5:30pm will roll into a continuous Happy Hour from 7:30pm for motor show fans.

It’s an exciting time for local plumbing business Millson Plumbing & Drain Laying, after they took the opportunity to join the Laser group 12 months ago. The move has meant a name change to Laser Plumbing Nelson, but directors Steve and Vicki Millson want people to know they’re still the same honest and reliable team, now with the added support of a well-established New Zealand brand. Laser Electrical and Plumbing currently has over 200 members and has evolved to become the leading electrical and plumbing contracting network across Australia and New Zealand. Steve and Vicki have owned and operated Millson Plumbing & Drainlaying for 24 years now, earning a reputation for quality workmanship and being ‘totally dependable’, a trait that will serve them well within the Laser franchise. Vicki says the change has been a great advantage for the business, allowing it to operate far more

efficiently than before. “It’s about belonging to something bigger. When you’re a small business you can feel very on your own, particularly now with the changes in compliance and other legislation which can be overwhelming.” Being part of the franchise now means great support from both computer software and the assistance of a business support manager, who can view what’s happening within the business and offer advice to improve their operating systems. Before it was pen and paper that kept the schedule for their tradesman, now job details are taken down in the office and sent to the tradesmen on site through their phones, while their book work is also completed from the same handy little tool. “We run a lot slicker ship than we used to, we get through more work, we’ve got more customers and our customers expect a high level, and we want to be working at that level. We don’t want to let anyone down,” says Vicki. The success of the business has also seen it expand with the addition of two new tradesmen, bringing their team to a total of six, including Vicki in the office and Steve providing client work and quoting, as well as plenty of time on the tools.

when evangelist, Edward Lewis, gathered a group of New Testament converts, and under the name Church of Christ, they began meeting in the Baptist chapel. This first core group was created in 1866 and it was a further 12 years, in 1878, when they finally constructed a building of their own. The church was erected on the main road property we see today, although now it’s the Sunday School Hall. Years after its completion, the congregation began to worry about the structural integrity. So in 1908, it was proposed to build a new church next to it, which is the chapel in use today. Unfortunately, once time and money had been put into the new building, it was then decided the original chapel could be saved and the congregation had it fitted with bracing. While the Sunday School Hall had additions made to it early on to accommodate the growing congregation, today’s church has undergone the most alterations. A mezzanine was installed to hold an extra 30 people or so during the 1960s, when the church held its 100th

anniversary, and the relocation of the main entrance. Otherwise, they are both largely the same as the day they were built. Originally, the church had doors opening out onto the main road, and, as it was horse and cart days, it wasn’t a problem. But as traffic increased, so too did the noise until finally, the congregation moved the entrance off to the side of the church. Now home to a congregation

of around 35, the church is most recognised for the bible messages that adorn its road facing window. “We just like to keep the Christian message out there,” says committee member, Margaret Clark. “A lot of churches can’t do that because they’re not in the right place, but it’s a small thing that we can do.” Rex Brooks and Garfield Ellery are both active members of the church today and have

been a part of the congregation for over 50 years. While Rex married his wife in the chapel, Garfield has links to one of the church’s founding families, Higgins, and both say the church has been a great family over the years. The church is also proud to be active in the local area and support mission work overseas. “We work in the community of Wakefield, we help with rest home services alongside the Anglican church, we do a Christmas outreach with other churches and work together when the need arises,” says Margaret. “And if there’s a community need, we listen to it and do what we can to help.” The 150th anniversary celebration will be taking place on March 19 and 20, starting on Saturday at around 3pm when past and present members of the church will come together to reminisce. Already there’s around 100 people coming from within the district and around the country and even some from Australia, and Margaret says anyone is welcome to help them celebrate. Sunday will include a worship and communion service, followed by lunch. Anyone that has not already registered their interest in the 150th anniversary weekend can do so by emailing Margaret at m.r.clark@ xtra.co.nz

From a dated building to a modern home, new owners Dawn Rosie and Krista Hobday have worked miracles with the property, transforming it into a stunning abode in the centre of Wakefield Village. Dawn had spent 14 years in Nelson, while Krista had lived in the city centre for 18 years, when they both decided it was time to make a break for the country. “We sold our house in Nelson and we were looking for a piece of land really, maybe to build a new house,” says Dawn. “We thought we’d take our time and enjoy not having any commitments for a while, then, less than six months in, I saw this in the paper, I’d always hankered after a church, so we came out and Krista was thinking it was a bit of a joke. “I wasn’t really serious, then as soon as I

pulled up outside the door I knew I loved it. That day there was a lot of people there looking at it, then someone put an offer in that weekend so it really spurred us on to do something. We put an offer in, I was delighted that we were successful and Krista was shocked.” Take one look inside and you wouldn’t believe it’s the same 100 year old building. The Sunday School Hall, that formerly held a toilet and kitchenette, now incorporates four double bedrooms, a bathroom, en-suite and a laundry. However, the talking point of the whole property is the living area, featuring an open kitchen, living and dining space, all cosily accommodated under the high ceiling of the chapel. The building has been gutted and rebuilt, with Dawn and Krista doing as much DIY as possible, and

Scouts The Wakefield Scout Group is looking forward to a busy and exciting 2016. We currently have 12 leaders and a good committee of enthusiastic parents. We have around 50 youth involved and numbers are increasing as the new year kicks in. Wakefield Scout Group provides opportunities for youth to participate from the youngest section known as Keas, through Cubs and Scouts then onto Venturers. This caters for girls and boys in school years 1 through to 13. Our Venturer section had a good number go to Inferno (Venturer Jamboree) in Rotorua in early January for two weeks. Three of our Venturers, Justin McRae, Jamie Honor and Sam Harrison, have recently achieved their Queen’s Scout Award, which is the highest award for youth in the Scouting organisation. Our Scout section, this year, is busy fundraising for the 21st NZ Scout Jamboree in December and January. In addition to preparing for the event by doing lots of camping, they are working on fitness and learning new life skills that will help them to be away from home for the 10-day camp.

After the success of their pictorial book on the Tui, Native Bird Recovery Richmond is soon to launch a second, focused on the Fantail. The group has been involved with trapping within the four gullies behind Richmond for the past 10 years and these books are a handy fundraiser, aiding the continuation of their conservation work. Unlike the pictorial study of the Tui, the Fantail book also features observations made by its producers Anne Webb and Neil Page, detailing the unique traits of the bird. “It’s not just a pretty book, it’s explaining how a fantail flies with aerodynamics that have probably never been photographed before. It’s not done by scientists, it’s a layman’s study with photography to back it up,” says Neil. Collecting photographs of the much loved bird has taken around

a year, and every picture seen in the book was taken by the same photographer on Anne’s property in Ruby Bay. “The photographer spent days capturing images, taking thousands of photos. They’re a very tricky bird to photograph because they’re never still, and you can’t predict where they’re going to be,” says Neil. The group hopes this book will be just as successful as their last project, which came out in 2013 and is still selling copies. Books can be purchased from BNZ Richmond and Nelson, or at the Grey Power office in Stoke. The large copy is $25 while the smaller version is $20. A book launch will also take place on Wednesday, February 24, from 1pm, at the Richmond Library.

Vietnam soldiers reunite in Nelson Andrew Board

The 160-odd members of Whiskey 2 Company that fought alongside each other in Vietnam, and considered themselves “brothers”, have met again for the first time since they disbanded in 1969. When they arrived back in New Zealand, the soldiers were told to tell their friends that they hadn’t been in Vietnam fighting a very unpopular war, but were instead on their overseas adventure. There was no parade, no reunions. But Nelson man Ralph Urwin got sick of seeing his old comrades' death notices, so decided to act and organise the company’s first reunion. “There are guys here who I haven’t seen in almost five decades. It is quite emotional.” The reunion started on Friday night at the Suburban Club with a registration. On Saturday night there was a

dinner and on Sunday a parade at Anzac Gardens before a barbecue. Ralph says he volunteered to go to war when he was 19 and an apprentice electrician. “It was my OE. We were brought up under the domino theory and were told to fight them in someone else’s back yard before you fight them in your own, that was the mind-set.” About 160 men from around New Zealand, and even one from the UK, joined the company and headed to Vietnam after months of training in New Zealand and Malaya. Ralph says it was often boring work, “indispersed by manic times”. The company would patrol, as there was no fixed front line. When they ran into a Vietnamese unit they would decide whether they could take them on themselves or if they would need back up in the form of ar-

tillery or air strikes. His company lost seven men during the war and had 30 injured, but he says they never lost a fire fight, “just the war”. “Charlie [the Viet Cong] was a good fighter and he was fighting in his terrain and he knew why he was fighting. About three months after I got there I wondered ‘why are we here?’” He says there were depressing days, especially when they were patrolling for days on end in the wet season. Ralph was the platoon medic and one day he was called to the perimeter because a man had been hit. “He was an Aussie guy and he had a big hole in his chest and he said ‘f*&%, I’m dead, I’m going to die’. I said 'hang on a minute Jacko, lean forward', so he leaned forward and there was no exit hole, so I said ‘you’ll live mate, it’s only shrapnel, you’ll live.’ He slept in my bunk for the rest

of the night until they could helicopter him out in the morning.” Ralph says he left New Zealand feeling proud that he was doing his bit for the nation, but returned “a villain”. “People were blaming the soldiers instead of the politicians. We were just doing what we were asked and the soldiers wore it, not the government.” Ralph returned to Nelson after the company came back home and picked up his apprenticeship. He then went to work for the Nelson Fire Service for 20 years. Ralph marched at the reunion parade at Anzac Gardens on Sunday with his grandchildren. He says it was a “special moment within a special weekend”. He wanted to thank all of those who travelled from all over New Zealand and Australia for the reunion, and to Nelson RSA president Barry Pont who helped organise the reunion.

Three major projects are set to shape Richmond’s town centre and the council wants to know what you think of them. The Tasman District Council is consulting on all three projects in February. The reinstatement of Queen St is part of a major stormwater upgrade for central Richmond. New water, wastewater and stormwater pipes will be laid beneath the street, and the centre of the street will be lowered to direct floodwaters away from properties during heavy rain in future. Richmond Ward Councillor Judene Edgar says the surface of Queen Street will need to be reinstated from shop front to shop front. “This gives us the

Major changes for Queen St. opportunity to improve the design of the street at the same time. We’re considering making the road narrower, footpath wider and having a continuous surface with no dropped kerb – similar to Upper Trafalgar Street. This would slow traffic and create a more pedestrianfriendly environment.” Judene says construction is scheduled to begin in August 2016.

The council is also reviewing the planning rules for buildings in Richmond’s central business zone to ensure a high standard of development as older buildings are gradually replaced. The review will include building heights, design, frontage, living and signage. Finally, the Council is looking into providing for mediumdensity housing within walking distance of Richmond town centre. There will be two open days for people to find out more and talk to council staff. These run from 9am – 6pm, at the Richmond Mall on Friday, February 12, and Richmond Library on Monday, February 15.

Waka ama paddlers compete at Lake Rotoiti Waka ama paddlers from around the South Island will descend on Lake Rotoiti this weekend for a twoday regatta. Paddlers will take part in the annual Tuna e Hoe Ana regatta, organised by Nelson’s Maitahi Outrigger Canoe Club. Many seasoned paddlers

will compete and several crews will use the event as a training run for the Takapuna Beach Cup, an international marathon race in Auckland later this month. Event details: Friday February 12, 5-7.30pm and Saturday February 13, 8.30am-3.30pm at Kerr Bay.

Waimea College beach volleyball players, from left, Holly Chandler, Ellie MacIntyre, Grace Young and Alex Bloomberg won medals at the national secondary schools champs in Tauranga.

Beach results are ‘best ever’ for Waimea volleyballers Waimea College had their best result in three years of competing at the national secondary schools beach volleyball champs with two pairs of their five pairs winning medals and another two securing top-five placings. South Island junior champions Grace Young and Alex Bloomberg won silver at the two-day tournament at Mt Maunganui losing just one game, the final 21-16, 22-20 to New Plymouth Girls’ High School.

Grace and Alex had earlier beaten schoolmates Flo MacIntyre and Harriet Ogilvie in a tense semi-final - Flo and Harrier finished fourth. Holly Chandler and Ellie MacIntyre lost only two games on their way to winning bronze in the senior competition. Matt Heyward and Tane MacDonald were fifth in senior boys with Charles Ching and Nick McDonald-Davis 11th in senior boys. “They had 54 teams in the junior girls so to have two of our


teams playing in the semi was fantastic,” coach Josh Ovsenek says. “Every other pair was right there as well - Matt and Tane did well finishing fifth in their first year in seniors and Holly and Ellie played really well for third. “It’s the first time we have had two pairs medal so it’s the best result we’ve had in three years. I’m already looking forward to next year.” Nelson College for Girls’ Tali Uia and Nadja Baden finished 10th in senior girls.

It was billed as the biggest day in local drag racing for some time and it didn't disappoint, with 39 cars from the North Island helping set sizzling times to match the sizzling weather. Organiser John Gourdie says he was thrilled with the racing. "Certainly the day went well, we were lucky with the weather and we had a great amount of entries and everyone who travelled here loved Nelson." The Southern Nationals was a part of the New Zealand Drag Racing Association national championships. That was enough of a carrot to attract the country's top drag racers.

College students take on Coast to Coast


Simon Bloomberg

Senior reporter Reporter



Waimea College’s Finn Mitchell, Cameron Jones and Daniel Reid have done their homework on the Coast to Coast and now they are hoping to pass the real test when they compete in the new school team’s section of the iconic multisport event. The students decided to teamup for the Coast to Coast late last year with Finn, 14, assigned the mountain run, Cameron, 15, the kayak and Daniel, 15, the road cycling. Although they already had a high level of fitness, Cameron says they had to modify their training to prepare for the unique demands of the Coast to Coast. Finn has been running “up riverbeds” to simulate the rocky terrain on the Coast to Coast’s mountain run while Cameron has been kayaking in rough seas to prepare for the paddle down the long Waimakariri River. Both Finn and Cameron have also had a practise run on the course to avoid any surprises on race day and now Cameron says they are ready to go. “I’ve training kayaking in rough seas and done a couple of long paddles to try and simulate the race conditions. I also paddled the Waimak last week and it was great.

“It took me about five and half hours but we stopped a few times so I’m probably looking at racing it in just under five. All the technical stuff was fine, it was just the (67km) distance that will be hard.” Although Cameron is relatively new to kayaking, he has been getting plenty of expert help with Flow Kayaks supplying a fast boat and Kayak HQ providing training and equipment. Finn says the key to negotiating the mountain run will be “to keep looking up and seeing what’s ahead”. “It’s quite a tough run with all the rock sections and the run out is a long stretch when you are tired. I’ll have to make sure I keep eating and drinking so I don’t run out of energy.” The three cycling sections will be “business as usual” for

Daniel who is an A grade cyclist with Tasman Wheelers. However, Daniel says he will be wary of the first cycle stage because it looks flat but is actually slightly uphill. “It’s a bit of a false flat so I’ll have to be careful. I haven’t done anything special for the Coast to Coast because I’ve been doing plenty of training for the national track champs next month, but I’m looking forward to racing in a team,” he says. The Coast to Coast two-day race starts on Friday with a 3km run from Kumara Beach followed by a 55km cycle to the foothills of the Southern Alps and a 33km run over Goat Pass. A 15km cycle is followed by a 67km kayak down the Waimakariri River and a final 70km ride to the finish at New Brighton Pier.

Trials riders come from all over for NZ Ihatove in Wakefield More than 30 trials motorbike riders from around New Zealand, and another six from overseas, will take part in the New Zealand Ihatove Adventure Trial in Eighty-eight Valley, near Wakefield. Ihatove has been running in Japan since the late 70s but is a comparatively new form of competing in New Zealand. Founded by Nelson rider Stephen Oliver, the event now attracts some of the best riders from around the country. Riders can pick one of five categories to compete in, each is based on level of difficulty. The Ihatove starts on Friday with a day dedicated to coaching, the competition-proper starts on Saturday and finishes on Sunday.

Sun 21 Feb 1.30-3pm Sun 21 Feb 3.30-5pm at Saxton Courts


Nelson's Shirley McDonald checks out the NZ Ihatove Adventure Trial course in Eighty-eight Valley. Stephen says the best spectator viewing will be between 11am and 3pm either day. The location will be signposted from the Eighty-Eight Valley Rd turn-off. “We are grateful

WEDNESDAY 10 February 2016


The Lantern Waitangi and me Parishioner, Antonio Sardella, had the opportunity to visit Waitangi several years ago and shares his reflections on learning more about New Zealand’s history. Going to Waitangi, I have to admit, I didn’t really know a whole lot about the Treaty or even how much the church had to do with New Zealand’s first steps. I didn’t even know what the Marsden Cross was. It’s so easy to brush New Zealand’s history away and say, “Well, it’s not my history”. But after being there and seeing with my own eyes and going to all the historic sites, it opened me up to it all, and I think now that actually it is my history, it’s all of our histories. We are a part of this nation, we live on its lands, we take the freedoms it gives us, and we are a part of the story that is playing out. So since we are a part of it, shouldn’t we know where it began? I loved learning about how much the Church actually played a part back then. You never really hear a lot on that side of the story. The missionaries were the ones that pushed for a treaty between the Europeans and the Maori people, they were concerned about Maori being mistreated and cheated out of their resources.

The Treaty was signed not as a peace settlement or business contract, but as the joining of two nations, Maori and Pakeha. Even though it all went wrong, the meaning behind it still stands, we are two nations joined. The church helped bring the two peoples together, and when the treaty fell apart, they were there to help pick up the pieces. When the lands were being taken from the Maori people, missionaries were the ones that would purchase those lands off the Europeans and gift them back to the local Iwi. The Church played a massive role in this country’s development. Even though the Church continues to be phased out in our country, we are still there. We are behind the scenes helping our country and its people, bringing our nation back together, not caring about religion, colour, gender or age.

Youth Leader wanted Church on the Hill is at an exciting stage and looking to form a new team to lead us forward in what the Lord has for us. To do this we need a new team member – a youth leader. This role is part time (12 and half hours per week paid) and has huge potential. Our mission statement, Following Jesus; Building Community puts our focus on Jesus and his mission – discipleship and outreach. Our existing paid team consists of the Vicar, a children’s team leader, seniors’ team leader, play group co-ordinator and administrator.

The youth leader will organise Friday night youth group and Sunday morning youth study along with a fortnightly evening for older youth. There are several volunteers helping already so you will be part of a team. It’s a fun and rewarding job with lots of support available. The job description is on our website or call our Vicar Susan 544 8827 or email susan.churchonhill@xtra. co.nz

Why lunch is so good Dawn’s enjoyment of Lunch on the Hill is infectious. She says, “If you are thinking of coming, you will get a warm welcome, the meals are marvellous and the people are lovely.” Dawn has been coming for about a year and a half. Two of her friends had suggested she come to the lunches, but she says, “It was quite hard the first time I came because I didn’t know what to expect.” Now she is a regular, and says that what she likes is the friendship – good company and great to get together over a meal. “Don’t worry if you haven’t got much money, you can donate as much or a little as you choose,” she says.

Dawn grew up in Aniseed Valley then moved to the North Island where she lived until coming back to Richmond 15 years ago. Dawn is a joy to have at Lunch on the Hill, as she now welcomes everyone and loves to talk to anyone new. She says that since finding Jesus He has given her such peace and love, she just wants to be with people and for them to have what she has found. Dawn is a member of the Church of Christ in Croucher Street, Richmond. The next Lunch on the Hill is on Tuesday 16 February and then 1 March. You will be welcome from 11.30 for a cuppa. The meal is served at 12 noon.
