Church fells tree despite local protests Teresa Hattan A mighty oak has fallen in Richmond, causing despair among some residents in Dorset St. Early on Saturday morning work began at the Holy Trinity Church to fell its 100 year-old oak tree to make way for a new hall, despite not having resource consent for it or even half the money it needs to start building. The tree was prominent at the entrance way to the church and its felling has angered many residents in the area, with flowers and letters being left on the base of the trunk over the weekend. One such poem left by an anonymous member of the public ended by stating, “This is the saddest sight in Richmond and those responsible should hang their heads in shame.” Dorset St resident Sue Gibson says she moved to the street in 1999 because of the old oak and she was sad to see it cut down.

She says the sound the oak made as it was felled was very final. “It was like the end of an era.” At least two local arborists refused to cut down the tree and a professional was called in from the West Coast to do the job. But the church says it needed the room and the tree was rotten anyway. The Reverend David Hollingsworth says over $300,000 has already been raised for its new centre. The total cost of the community centre is expected to be $1.2 million and the intention late last year was to commence building once $700,000 had been raised. David also says the tree wasn’t going to “fall down any time soon” but with the rot that was present it would’ve given way eventually. “It should have been cut down last year really. But with the delay the church has been able to reassess the situation. We came to a de-

Huge pumpkins set to roll into Mapua Ordinary scales can’t be used to weigh these large orange fruit. The McKay family in Appleby have spent the last several months growing a couple of giant pumpkins. John and his son Tyler, 10, will be entering the Club Mapua pumpkin competition at the end of the month, but are keeping quiet about the things growing in their garden. However, they will say that five tonne of horse manure and lots of fish and seaweed has been used to encourage the pumpkins along. The pumpkin competition has been

held in Mapua for a number of years but has new organisers this year. Club Mapua, a newly formed not for profit organisation, has taken over the reigns this year. All of the funds raised at events run by Club Mapua will go back to the local community, although the pumpkin competition if the first money making venture for the group. Funds raised from the competition will be going to the Summit Rescue Helicopter. A range of categories and prizes will be up for grabs including children’s

best dressed and the ever-popular biggest pumpkin. Taking place on March 26 at the Mapua Tavern, organisers say the event has become rather popular. Entry into the competition is just $5 for the pumpkin plant, but those keen can enter on the day with their own pumpkin just need to pay the $5 entry fee. Weigh in is from 2pm to 4pm with a prize giving at 5pm. All are welcome to come in fancy dress, as there will be a few Cinderella’s floating around.

The Holy Trinity Church in Richmond has cut down the old oak tree at the front of the parish. What do you think about the loss of old trees like this one?

“There would have had to be a pretty good reason to cut it down. If it was rotten then it could’ve been a risk to kids.”

“If it was dangerous and old it had to come down. I can understand why the church would do it but I can also understand why it would upset people.”

“I think these types of trees should stay, it sort of protects the place.”

“I didn’t think they would chop it down. I knew about the developments but nothing was said and then all of a sudden it was gone. It was quite a shock.”

People person and principal rural fire officer killed in crash The Tasman district lost a “great guy” in a tragic accident on Friday. Brightwater’s Neil Eder was killed in a car crash at Maruia on Friday afternoon while travelling to a wedding. The principal rural fire officer was killed after his vehicle and a truck collided at Maruia, 66km southwest of Murchison. Tasman’s deputy mayor Tim King says Neil’s death will be a big loss to the community. “Neil was a great guy.” Tim says Neil’s roll as principal rural fire officer meant he was involved with a wide range of people. “But he was also well known in the wider community for his involvement in sport.” Being chairman of the rural fire force for several years, Tim says he worked quite closely with Neil during this time. Neil had been involved with the force for four years and before that was heavily involved in the forestry industry.

Church tree gets the chop FROM PAGE 1 cision that it was the best site for the building and removing the tree was what needed to be done.” Although the removal of the tree may have appeared to have been done quickly, David says it was not a “knee-jerk reaction”. After consultation with the Historic Places Trust the church looked at the needs of the community and church users. “This allowed us to establish the size and use of the building. It has been planned with flexibility and multiple uses in mind, and

to have the capacity to be a Civil Defence relief centre in the case of emergency,” says David. David says the decision to chop the oak tree down was not easy. “After much debate it was agreed that some of the trees might need to be felled, and an undertaking has been given that these trees would be replaced by plantings elsewhere on the site as the redevelopment takes place.” The decision to fell the oak tree was made two years ago as there were concerns about safety. “The expert who felled the tree for us offered his opinion that the tree was a major safety risk


as there was rot in the main trunk.” David says the current church hall has served the parish and the community for over 100 years. “Since the early 1990s the church members have been faced with the need for larger and better facilities to meet the needs of community and church users.” - Do you have an opinion about the felling of this old oak tree?

Helping him have been Blake Hearne, left, and Sophie Timpson, right.

Since then Raiden has been bugging his mum to let him do something to help. “Ever since he first saw the earthquake he wanted to go straight out and help. “I didn’t want him asking for money so he did this instead.” So far Raiden has been able to collect a boot full of food and Lisa says she is proud of her son for doing something so kind. Lisa’s work, Little People Early Learning Centre, will also be helping Raiden’s cause. Raiden wanted to thank everyone who had donated food already and says he is excited to be able to do something to for people who needed it.

Church stands to make huge profit from Tadmor Teresa Hattan The Anglican Diocesan is set to charge the people of Tadmor for a church that was originally donated by that same community. The church was built by the local Tadmor community on donated land in 1914 and was given to the diocesan. That same diocesan is now selling the church much to the horror of the community, which is now trying to raise enough money to keep it. One of the major concerns for locals is that the graveyard, which is home to many of their ancestors, is on the land. The church came close to being sold and turned into private residence recently after the diocesan received an offer for it. Bruce Moffitt, a Tadmor resident and great grandson of those who donated the land, met with vicar Bernard Portman and a public meeting was called late last month to discus the matter. “Once we started talking to people it got people’s backs up a bit because it’s a cemetery up there, as well as the church, nobody wanted people living there,” says Bruce. He says around 30 people were expected to attend the public meeting, but around 90 were present. The Dean of Anglican Diocesan chaired the meeting and Bruce says by the time the meeting was called the proposal had

changed. “They then said they wanted to sell the church on the open market, instead of just to this person who had made the offer.” Bruce says most people were against the idea of selling the community icon, let alone to someone to live in. “We would like the diocesan to either donate it back to the community or negotiate a price.” He was told the sale wasn’t about money, just that St James at Tadmor was a surplus building to the parish that they wanted to dispose of. “We tried to get out of them whether they would give it for a token price and they said they would have to negotiate.” A trust or incorporated society will now be set up by the community to negotiate with the diocesan about the sale of the church back to the community. The group will get together to see if the community can raise the funds needed to buy the building and land, which has a government value of $126,000. The cemetery at the church is still active, with many of the plots booked by locals. Bruce says most people were shocked, and some were even disgusted, that the diocesan wanted to sell their church. “The whole church was given to the community and it was built by local people. We believe the diocesan shouldn’t be able to sell it because it is a part of the commu-

Our ancestors gave it so there would be a church and a cemetery here forever. Bruce says the diocesan has given the community the assurance they will not sell it to anyone else until the locals have had a chance to negotiate to buy it. “As long as I can remember the locals have looked after the church, it hasn’t cost the church a penny to maintain it. We’ve looked after the cemetery and the bookings for the cemetery and mowed the lawns and trimmed the trees.” “To others it might look like nobody cares

or uses it, yet we have weddings and funerals there often and in the future you could have more people wishing to attend services there. If it was sold that would all be gone for the sake of a few bucks,” says Bruce. The locals are now hoping the diocesan offers the church to them at a price they can afford so they can keep the beautiful building at the heart of the community, where they say it belongs. Members of the diocesan did not return calls from Waimea Weekly.

Not a franchise…Not a nationally owned company………. A local family business… with local roots…it just means more. Many locals will remember Hubber’s Furnishing and their store on Halifax St, and may wonder what exactly happened to them. Well, here’s their story… Gerald and Eileen Beattie established their furnishing business in 1993 and quickly built a reputation as a market leader in their field providing quality soft furnishings and flooring. For many years they operated from their Halifax St premises but in 2008 they were offered an opportunity they couldn’t turn down. Gerald joined the Flooring Xtra buying group, subsequently expanding the company into something bigger and better, some might say something Xtra! By joining New Zealand’s largest buying group, Hubber’s were able to access a more extensive range of product at the most competitive prices, while remaining totally locally owned and operated. Because Gerald still makes all of the business decisions he has been able to maintain the high standards that were an integral part of their business, ensuring they offered exceptional quality products backed by outstanding service, and that their prices were the best around. To display the larger product range bigger premises were required and relocating to their new showroom in the Raeward Fresh Complex in Richmond meant they were still close to Nelson residents, but also

Wakefield win new boat award

BRIGHT SUNFLOWERS: Richmond’s Bluebell Florists are doing their bit for Christchurch by selling single sunflowers. Florists, from left, Kate Bradley, Amy Bryson and Aimee Norrie have been selling the flowers supplied by Laraine Peterson. Photo: Teresa Hattan.

Florists try to spread a bit of cheer for Christchurch Local Richmond business Bluebell Florists is trying to put smiles on peoples faces. The florist has been selling single sunflowers for a week for $5 with all proceeds going to the Christchurch relief effort. “Some people have been buying them for people

here from Christchurch which is nice,” says owner Kate Bradley. “It’s a small thing, but it’s something we can do,” she says. So far the business has been able to donate $240. “We’re hoping we can sell a few more over the coming days,” says Kate.

Wakefield locals John and Rosie Herd came home with the best new boat award from the New Zealand Antique and Classic Boat Show over the weekend. Despite getting a “hammering” weather wise on Sunday, two days of racing were held for yachts, row boats, seagull motored dinghies, poppers, canoes, child rowers and swimmers. On Sunday morning 30 heritage devotees met to discuss the feasibility of a permanent home for classic boating at St Arnaud. Organiser Pete Rainey says although it’s early days, the concept of a classic boat museum met with a lot of enthusiasm. “There is some caution about how it would work financially but there is definite support for a community facility for locals and visitors, with classic boats as an attraction to add to the outdoor activity in the area and help to keep people for a longer stay at the lake.” Pete says despite numbers being down for the weekend everyone was happy with how the event turned out. With 140 entrants and a good discussion about the boat muse-

um under their belts, organisers say they are looking forward to the next event. A Danish built double-ender, that came to New Zealand in 1927 on a factory whale ship, won the Jens Hansen Award for the best vessel at the weekend’s boat show. Judges Mick Fone and John Harris say picking the most worthy boat was very difficult. “The Else had a good story, and the album that Doug did of the restoration showed the effort that had gone into a very thorough job,” says Mick. The Eventiac award for best themed display want to SS Flirt, a replica royal mail steam ship that was completed in time for the Classic Boat Show by Lionel Jeffcoat in Havelock and launched on Saturday morning. Owner Robert Hamlett had his entire crew thematically attired in navy and white stripes. The Ron Culley Steam Trophy went to India, built in 1906 with an enclosed cabin added in 1922. India was bought in 1999 and has been under restoration for most of that time by her new owners.

The Stockcar class is a very popular class and this year will be no exception, so make sure you don’t miss out on the fun this Saturday.


Proud sponsors of Nelson Speedway 36 Ellis Street, Brightwater

Ph: 542 4076

Get ready for some brilliant speedway action as the annual Stock Shock hits town this weekend. The event, now in its fourth year, is slightly different to last year’s show though. Due to circumstances beyond their control, Nelson Speedway has had to reduce the normal two nights of action down to one. “We usually get a lot of entries from north and south but this year unfortunately for us two weeks ago the North Island champs got put over top of this weekend, which has meant the North Island vehicles can’t come now,” says Nelson Speedway president Kris Carpenter. “That compounded with the earthquake in Christchurch and subsequent moving of the Crusaders games and one of them being on the Friday meant that we looked at it and thought people were having to make a choice and we didn’t want them to have to do that, so we thought we would take one day out of the equation, still go with the Saturday and hope that we get the support for it.” This Saturday still promises to be a great sporting event for the whole family with lots of action on the track to keep everyone entertained. Stock Shock has attracted a new sponsor this year, Brian Stanaway Roading Ltd. “They picked up the sponsorship after last year’s sponsor decided not to continue with it. He’s new this year and he’s been really good about it and been really supportive,” Aniseed Valley Rd, RD1, Richmond says Kris. Kris says the crowd can expect great entertainment, as the night will be run in a three heat format with points being accumulated over three heats.The Woody - 027 485 9757 association is also putting up performance money Brendan Higgins - 027 457 6753 Fax (03) 544 4364 woody@waterwell.co.nz for the competitors, so they will all be vying for that.

“Because we haven’t had to pay the travel money for the North Islanders, the sponsorship money has now been freed up so there will be prizes for performance and the most action kind of stuff. Kris says this will mix things up a bit as the money available to the competitors is sure to create more action. The main event on the night is the stock cars, but other classes will be supporting this category. Gates open at 6pm with racing starting at 7pm. Gate prices have remained the same at $15 for adults, $7 for children or $30 for a family. Next year Kris says the event will pick back up to two days again.

Fast food gets Scott over the line first Teresa Hattan

NATIONAL CHAMPION: Waimea College’s Scott Barr, 13, is the national under 15 cross country mountain biking champion. Photo: Teresa Hattan.

Race preparation food like McDonalds and KFC helped get Scott Barr claim the chequered flag. The Waimea College student won the under 15 national mountain bike title late last month in Dunedin. After being piped at the post the weekend before after suffering a bad case of the flu, the 13 year-old says he was determined and very focused on the national title. Recently Scott placed second overall at the South Island mountain bike champs for under 14s. Last month he completed New Zealand Cup rounds in Nelson and Christchurch. Scott was able to win the Nelson section but he placed fourth in the Christchurch round after spending two days in bed with the flu. Despite the illness, Scott missed out on third place by just three seconds. The nationals, held on February 26, saw Scott compete against boys he had raced against in both Nelson and Christchurch. Everything went the Year 10 student’s way on the day but there weren’t as many competitors as the organisers would have liked. “Unfortunately they didn’t get the numbers they would have liked in Dunedin because of the Christchurch earthquake but it was great and it was good to have the boys there,” says Scott’s dad Darrin.

Scott says he was kept on his toes and had a good race. “It was wet muddy and cold in Dunedin like normal.” Winning a national title was pretty cool for the Brightwater resident. “We went and rode the track on Friday and it was wet and muddy so we had to change tyres,” says Scott. By the second lap Scott knew he had a chance to win the title. “The guy in second was catching me so I knew I had to keep going. On the last lap it got even muddier and slippery and on a few of the corners you slipped out and you could see him coming. I thought he was going to get me.” Darrin says his son was conscientious about holding his spot because of what had happened in Christchurch the weekend before. Scott says he was quite nervous beforehand but he managed to eat McDonalds for lunch and KFC for tea on the Friday in preparation for the race. “Most athletes wouldn’t eat that,” says Darrin. Next on the agenda for the teenager is the South Island Secondary School championships, which will be held in Bluff. Scott says he would like to thank sponsors Ryco Hydraulics, Village Cycles, Translog Services, Hydraulic Services and Repairs for their continued support.

Tapawera cools off with tabloids sports A good way of ending yet another hot day and starting the school year was found by Tapawera Area School recently. The school held their annual tabloid sports late last month with Baton House taking out the title for the first time. Students, staff and parents joined in a range of outdoor fun activities that had all students working as teams including new entrants pupils through to the seniors in Year 13. The aim of the day of fun and wet games was to provide opportunities for school bonding, unity and leadership. The variety of events, based at 10 stations, included racing in the primary pool while wearing extra large tee-shirts, slippery slide activities to filling buckets with wet sponges. Kirsty Griffith, the organiser of this event for the last six years, says it’s a great way of getting the whole school together at the beginning of the year. “The students and staff have lots of fun as there are lots of water activities and some teachers even took the ‘mickey’ out of fellow staff members. As always there was a good crowd of parents watching and encouraging the students.”

SOCIAL FOOTBALL: Nelson man Stefan Herbst is organising a social football tournament taking place at Saxton Field this Sunday. Photo: Andrew Board.

Football tournament to provide fun and funds Nelson man Stefan Herbst has thought of one active way to support earthquake victims in Christchurch, organising a social football tournament. Stefan, who works for Opus, decided he wanted to help and the idea of a tournament, where people can have a bit of fun and still donate to a worthy cause, appealed. “What happened was just so awful and I know a lot of businesses out there would be keen to form a social team and have a bit of a kick around while raising money for the Red Cross earthquake appeal,” he says. The six-a-side tournament will be held at Saxton Field and Stefan al-

ready has a few teams confirmed, with Sport Tasman helping run it. The, as yet unnamed, tournament will be held on Sunday 13 March from 9.30am. Team registration is $250 with every cent going towards the relief fund. “Each team will get several games and we will have a barbeque and try to make a great day of it.” While business-house teams have already signed up to play, Stefan is not ruling out any team who would like to take part, including family and social teams. For more information get in touch with Stefan by emailing him at stefan.herbst@opus.co.nz.

Navigation Safety Bylaw: Temporary Reservation and speed-limit uplifting for sea-swim and kayak races around Kaiteriteri, 20 March The Nelson Triathlon and Multisport Club Inc. and Tasman Bay Kayak Racing Club Inc. have applied to Tasman District Council to run an event in the Kaiteriteri area on Sunday 20 March 2011. The planned paddling and swimming races will have competitors and support vessels passing through and occupying the Kaiteriteri water-ski area, and paddlecraft potentially racing between there and the Motueka River mouth, Fisherman Island or Split Apple Rock as conditions dictate. Pursuant to the provisions contained in the Navigation Safety Bylaw, the Tasman District Council’s Harbourmaster has granted a temporary reservation of the Kaiteriteri waterski area for the purposes of the Event, between the hours of 11.00 am and 5.00 pm on Sunday 20 March. The effect of the temporary reservation will be to prevent other activities including water skiing from occurring within that area for the time specified. Event Marshalls have the authority to require other users to vacate these areas as required, but may allow limited use when it will not interfere with the Event, at the organiser’s discretion. An uplift of the 5 knot speed restrictions has also been granted to paddlecraft and support vessels directly involved in the Event in the areas specified above. Persons wishing to waterski at Kaiteriteri during this event should consult first with Event Marshalls, or use the ski areas in the Abel Tasman National Park area. The closest are at Stillwell Beach or Adele Island spit. Swimmers and other water users close to shore in the area should be aware of the potential of close encounters with racing paddlecraft, and powerboats should take care to give way to paddlecraft and minimise wake in their vicinity. A number of conditions have been imposed on the organisers of the event. These may be viewed by contacting Tasman District Council’s Harbourmaster, Ph. 03 543 8400 during office hours.

Tasman District Council seeks tenders from experienced contractors to construct the Waterfront Precinct, the second stage of the Waterfront Park development at Mapua. The park is on part of the remediated former Fruit Growers Chemical Company site between the Waimea Estuary, Aranui Road and Tahi Street. The work involves the development of planting, seating, park furniture, lighting, walkways and recreational park areas along the estuary foreshore. Access to commence construction will be early April 2011. Due to the nature of the site strict adherence to the site management plan will be a core requirement of the contract management for this project. Tender documents will be available in electronic form from the project manager. Contractors interested in tendering for this project may request copies of the documentation by emailing the project manager at donr@rdtpacific.co.nz. Tenders close with Tasman District Council at 2.00 pm Wednesday 23 March 2011.
