No threat to free parking Free parking is here to stay. Tasman mayor Richard Kempthorne says the council will not touch the free parking policy, which has been credited to a boom in the town’s retail industry. The council is currently trying to trim as much fat from its budget to deal with a debt of more than $150 million. One of the proposed cuts is to its funding of Nelson Tasman Tourism, which markets

the region to potential tourists around the world. Richard has said the council isn’t in the business of subsidising any industry. That statement has caused some to ask if that will apply to free parking as it could be seen as a subsidy to retailers. But Richard says that isn’t so, and the free parking across the Tasman district is a “community good” and something that is

Andrew Board Editor strongly supported. “Like everything, you can’t say it will never happen but there are certainly no plans to look at that at the moment.” He says there has not been any discussions

around the council changing its policy on free parking as it has been a successful policy for the entire Tasman district. “It has been very important to Richmond and the other towns in the district. It’s something that is widely supported and I think most councillors are certain that’s it’s not something we want to look at,” he says. “We’re very happy with the status quo on that issue.”

A pretty purple day There was plenty of purple on show on Friday, as students from Henley School and many others, kitted up to support Purple Cake Day. Purple Cake Day is a charity event set up by the Kenbe La Charitable Foundation Trust

to support children all over the world so they can receive the education needed to break the poverty cycle and create a better future. Just over $600 was raised from Henley School’s coin trail and mufti day.

A human skull was found on the edge of the Waimea Estuary on Sunday night, by two “curious” fishermen. But the skull isn’t expected to be from anything suspicious, most likely an ancient grave. Mackenzie Rose and her partner went to the estuary, behind Nelson Airport to fish, when they spotted the skull. “We were just walking along the estuary when we saw it. We didn’t know if it was real or not but I picked it up and we could tell right away that it was real.” The pair then called police, who took the skull, along with some other bone fragments, away for investigation. Mackenzie says the skull was “really heavy”. “It was just bone but we wondered where it came from and how it got there.” Nelson police say they believe the skull and bones may have been dislodged by the recent high tides and wind. They did

New supermarket one step closer

A New World supermarket at the former Bay Nursery site on the corner of Gladstone and Bateup roads is one step closer. Last week, independent commissioners and the Tasman District Council gave a plan change to rezone the site from residential to commercial, paving the way for the supermarket to be built. The supermarket will service the growing number of residents on the Waimea plains and has been welcomed by parts of the community. But some concerns remain. Bateup Rd resident Grant Irvine is concerned that traffic on his street will “become chaos”, unless there are changes to the roading plans for the proposed new supermarket at Three Brothers Corner in Richmond. Although Supermarket giant Foodstuffs made some concessions, including reducing the size of the supermarket, concerns about the impact on traffic on Bateup Rd were largely rejected by Foodstuffs and the commissioners. “The supposed traffic expert from Foodstuffs said that having an entrance to the supermarket off Bateup Rd won’t

He says there will be a bottleneck created at the Bateup Rd entrance that “will only get worse as all the housing developments on Wensley Rd”. Grant and Richmond councillor Judene Edgar are also concerned that ratepayers will have to pay for any changes to Bateup Rd that are not included in the planning stages. “What I am concerned about is

that when they find out Bateup Rd can’t handle the extra traffic the council and the ratepayers will have to pay to fix the problem,” says Judene. “Bateup Rd needs to be widened, at least to the Collins Rd intersection, with a turning lane at the supermarket entrance, and that needs to be included in the plans so that Foodstuffs pays for it and not the ratepayers.” Judene, who made submissions to the plan change, did not vote when council adopted the change last week. Judene says noise from the supermarket is also a concern for residents on Paramu Pl that back onto the proposed development. Although the supermarket will have restricted opening hours Judene says the noise will still be a problem.

Muddy Buddy ‘will return’

Karl Dykes rubs the mud off his head after Sunday’s Muddy Buddy event. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

It will have to be in a different venue next year but the organisers of Tasman School’s Muddy Buddy are adamant the event can continue. More than 1300 people took part in the popular mud run through the Moutere Inlet on Sunday morning, but the future of it had been up in the air ever since Tasman District Council said they would need a resource consent,

which was unlikely to be granted due to the “significant adverse effect on the saltmarsh and an adverse effect on mudflat communities”. While Kylie Rush, an organiser of the Muddy Buddy, respected that decision, she was hopeful it will be held next year. “It absolutely has to be [moved]. That was one of the conditions that we will go for a resource consent in a new

place,” she says. “We think it’s a really great event for the community, we get people from all over the region, and everyone is behind us.” Kylie says the event was vital for Tasman School, with all of the money raised being “the icing on the cake”, paying for the “special extras” at the school. “Losing that would directly hinder the school.”

Local insurance broker Syd Hanna decided to try and help Andre and recently handed over a cheque for $4000, to go towards the costs of Dale’s funeral. Syd looks after Andre’s insurance through his job at Jack’s Tyres.

New, easier track for mountain bikers

A new mountainbike track has been built in the Richmond Hills, to give riders an easier climb to the top and a safer descent back to the start in Easby Park. Mountainbikers had been using Tower Road in the Tasman District Council’s Kingsland Forest to gain access to the top of the Richmond Hills where they linked into a network of forestry roads and downhill tracks. But that route wasn’t ideal because Tower Rd was too steep for some riders and so a group of mountainbike enthusiasts and the Tasman District Council decided to do something about it. “We wanted to make the Richmond Hills

more accessible both up and downhill,” mountainbiker Mike Brien says. “It allows riders to get onto Lookout Rd and then cycle to the top. “It’s still grade three and quite steep because of the country it’s in but nowhere near as steep as the existing trails. Now we plan to build another track that goes right to the top.” Mike says Nelson mountainbiking identity Chris Mildon and Ching Contracting’s director Andrew Spittal did most of the work on the new track which is about one kilometre long. The project has been supported by the council which is involved with the long term plan of developing a network

Senior reporter Reporter of tracks in the Richmond Hills. “Chris planned and marked out the track and Andrew donated the digger and all his time. We are very lucky to have their support.” Chris wants riders to get on their bikes and give the new track a test run to help compact the surface. They are also looking at some armouring options to protect the surface from “what are pretty wet winters

up in those hills”. Mike says the new track will also make the biking and walking in the Richmond Hills safer because it will remove bikes from Tower Rd. Mike says the new track, which can be accessed through Easby Park and links the bottom of Tower Rd to the cellphone tower, will eventually be named and signposted. A group of volunteers added some finishing touches to the track earlier this month and Mike plans to hold further working bees on the track. Anyone interested in helping out can contact Mike on 021 063 3880.

NEWS in brief SAXTON OVAL UPGRADE: Urgent repairs to Saxton Oval’s drainage system will ensure the stadium is match-fit for future international cricket matches, says Nelson City Council. The remediation work to fix significant issues with the oval’s ground drainage will cost $242,000 and is necessary to ensure the oval is ready to host the Cricket World Cup next year. Work will likely begin in mid-April. GREEN LIGHT FOR LIGHT NELSON: It’s all go for Light Nelson, with the announcement that the Nelson Events Management Committee will support the event with a significant grant from the council’s events marketing and development fund.

Schools set to ‘Rock da House’

Nearly every fortnight between the end of this month and August, Richmond Mall will host a mini concert as excitement builds for the 2014 Richmond Mall Rock da House. Thirty-three schools from across the region have confirmed their place in the Richmond Mall sponsored event – the largest school music initiative in the Top of the South. The initiative is about encouraging participation, developing talent and creating opportunities, and is coordinated by musical directors John Phillips and Paulette Nott, with Dave Pritchard, Leallen Andersen and Monika Burrows who represent some of the region’s schools. Before the final three concerts in Motueka on

August 18, 19 and 20, choirs, duos and soloists will perform in the mall food court nearly every second Thursday evening for about an hour. Richmond Mall manager Belinda de Clercq says a schedule for the mini concerts would be confirmed in the coming week, and she was excited about the opportunity to be involved with Rock da House. “We’re a community mall and the schools are the centre of the community. It creates a bit of excitement for our customers,” she says. “It looks like we’ll have a mini concert every fortnight and that’ll be between 6:30pm and 7:30pm in the food court starting in March.” Last year’s show in Nelson drew a total audience of 3500 over the three nights.

Police crack down on visiting gangs Police say they are disappointed at the behaviour of motorcycle gang members and their associates over the weekend, with one rider clocked doing 104km per hour in a 50km zone. Police issued more than 50 infringement

notices to members of the group, the majority for speed, careless driving or riding on the wrong class of licence. They were in town for a group ride on Saturday. One rider travelling to the event was caught travelling at twice the speed limit.

He received a roadside suspension and will face court action. A further three riders received roadside suspensions for riding on the wrong class of licence. They were required to arrange for someone else to ride their bike.

Three vehicles were also impounded over the weekend. Police say they kept a close watch on the visiting gang members and their associates for the duration of their visit, to ensure they complied with the law.

St Paul’s gears up for St Paddy’s

A complimentary glass of Guinness, an Irish stew created by award winning chef Matt Bouterey and Irish music by the band Flying Feet are just three reasons why you should buy a ticket for St Paul’s School St Patrick’s Night Dinner and Dance at the Hope Hall this Friday. And a fourth, very good rea-

son, is that you will be helping the school raise $200,000 for a new multi-functional building. Friends of St Paul’s committee member and school parent Steph Mills says the school is presently using one of its craft rooms for school assemblies and desperately needs a new hall. Steph says “lots of businesses

and families have helped out with preparations and providing prizes for the raffles”. Matt Bouterey, who has three daughters attending St Paul’s, is preparing the Irish stew. Tickets cost $25 and can be purchased from the school’s office on Salisbury Rd, Queen St Pharmacy and Richmond Office Products.

Pest fence now within ‘arms reach’ A $4.7 million project to build a pest-proof fence around the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary is on target, after it was granted $1.25 million last week. The sanctuary trust is now just $200,000 short of its fundraising target, which will signal the start of construction. Brook Waimarama Sanctuary Trust chair Dr Dave Butler says there was elation from the trust over the Lottery Grants Board

award of $1.25 million, which would be echoed by the huge group of volunteers and supporters of the project. “This is a ringing validation of the Brook Sanctuary’s national significance, and an affirmation of the trust’s vision and robust planning,” he says. “It also recognises all the hard work members have put in towards realising the vision and the strong support for the project

from our strategic partners and the wider community.” Dave says the $1.25 million grant gets the sanctuary to “within arm’s reach” of starting construction on the pest-proof fence, but the trust is firm in its resolve to build the fence without incurring any debt and it is now on track to do so. “There is now just a $200k gap left to reach our $4.7m target and we have other major

funding applications already lodged and being prepared,” he says. “We’ll also be stepping up the ‘Get Behind the Fence’ campaign.” Dave says if the Nelson community, the Top of the South region, and the nation as a whole maintained their support he was confident there would be a start on the fence construction by the middle of this year.

Hats off to rower’s fundraiser It’s official: The bucket hat is back. Talented Waimea College rower Sean Ducray has taken a sun-smart approach to his personal fundraising campaign this year, and has managed to get his own bucket hat included as part of the school uniform. It’s proving to be a great success too, with 80 of them already snapped up. Sean, who recently broke a national record with the Nelson Rowing Club’s Under-18 coxless quad, has set about finding ways he could raise money to help ease the financial strain of

the high cost sport. “Before I started school this year I had a really short haircut and I didn’t want to get sunburnt so I thought ‘why not get a hat?’,” says Sean. “Senior management thought it was a great idea so we just went full steam ahead.” The cost for each bucket hat is $20 and all of the profits go towards his rowing. He hoped that in the future, when he left school, the profits would go towards other sports at Waimea College. “I enjoy business studies and I enjoy making them for myself. It’s not huge amounts of money but anyone can buy them.”

company has arrived On 8 April 2014 Windows XP will come to the end of its life. This means that Microsoft will no longer provide patches and security updates for the now 12 year old operating system, opening the door for hackers and viruses to exploit the software. For those who have never understood the constant updates that their computers undergo, this is Microsoft fixing security issues and this is what will no longer happen for Windows XP. The main implication for users is web-based security, so sites like Facebook and online banking will gradually become inaccessible as support is stopped. Already the figures show that you are three times more likely to get a virus on a Windows XP computer than on a Windows 7 one and Microsoft predicts that April 8th will see the security risk balloon. What you will need to continue safe internet use is a new operating system, which in most cases means a new computer as older machines are not always up to the specifications needed to

run the new software. Fortunately for you pcMedia are able to provide you with a solution. “Windows 8 is really good for touch screen devices like a phone or tablet while Windows 7 is recommended for desktop and laptop computers,” says Richmond manager Roger Golding. “We stock a complete range of both laptops and PC’s with Windows 7 and Windows 8, so if you want to upgrade come and have a look.” For business users, the Small Business Server 2003 is ending its life at the same time, as well as Office 2003.

Piano for Sundial Sq Richmond’s Sundial Square is about to become alive with the sound of music, after Hope artist Steph Buck turned her dream into a reality. Steph purchased a piano in January and with the support of the district’s businesses and retailers is donating it to the community as Richmond’s official street piano. It will be stored in Cash and Trade in Sundial Square and wheeled out on a special platform made by Brightwater Engineering to bring music to the streets of Richmond. “It has been my dream and passion for more than 10 years to have a street piano,” Steph says. “In January, when the ideal piano unexpectedly presented itself, I decided it was time to make the dream a reality.” Steph says the first thing she did was talk to as many Richmond businesses and retailers as she could to gauge their support for such a project. “The response and

enthusiasm I received from this group has been absolutely astounding, many pledging donations and help to get it off the ground.” She says the piano is a pristine condition Beale which has now been decorated with “artwork displaying beautiful images representative of our Tasman region” by the “wonderfully talented members of the Tasman Visual Arts Group”. Steph says street pianos are found in cities and towns all over the world where they create a fun atmosphere and sense of well-being. She wants to encourage passers-by of any age or ability to sit and play the piano and hopes it will also be used by school groups and choirs for lunchtime concerts “for the benefit of the whole community”. There will be a grand opening of the Richmond street piano in Sundial Square at 12.30pm on Thursday March 20.

The nationwide charity provides free, themed birthday cakes to seriously ill children and children that require frequent hospitalisation and last Sunday it delivered the perfect gift for Beau - a swimming pool cake. “I love swimming so it was a really cool birthday cake,” Beau says. “It had a person swimming and towels and jandals and a lilo and a beach ball.” The cake was created by Corina McKay from NAC Party and Event Catering in Stoke who is one of Operation Sugar’s large network of amateur and professional bakers donating their time, experience and money to provide cakes. “It’s the first cake I’ve made for Operation Sugar so it was really nice to be able to do something like that,” Corina says. “When I told my aunt I was making the cake she sent some money up to pay for the ingredients, so she helped too.” As well as giving a child a specially themed cake, the organisation pays for a professional photographer Simone Dacombe to take a birthday portrait as a gift for the whole family. Chelsea Sugar is the major sponsor, and the scheme also relies on community grants and donations.

Beau Prosser prepares to blow out the candle on her 12th birthday cake watched by her big sister Kelly and Archie Lunai. Photo: Simone Dacombe Photography. Beau’s mother Katie Prosser says the cake made Beau’s day. “The cake was so cool. At the end of the birthday party all Beau’s friends took something off the cake.” Katie says Beau, who attends Waimea Intermediate, suffers from a congenital condition called cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) which affects the lungs. She has had over 40 operations at Auckland’s Starship Hospital and Katie says her daughter is “an incredible child”. “I was 20 weeks pregnant when we found out she had CCAM and

we were told it would probably be fatal and were advised to terminate. We already had three children under five and my first reaction was ‘I can’t go through with this pregnancy’ but then we decided to give her a chance to live and I’m glad we did. “Then, when she was five, she became critically ill and was airlifted to Starship Hospital and they removed most of her left lung and fixed a hole in her heart. We thought she would never survive long enough to make it to school but she did and now she is turning 12.”

No it isn’t fair, it was built for sport and should stay that way. Council should get their act together and start making plans for a venue suitable to host visiting acts, etc. What is wrong with them, it has been a bone of contention for a while now. Brenda Kenny.

No thank you. Lulu Armstrong. At the end of the day it’s a business, long term revenue will always take precedence. They’re going to earn less because of less “available slots” to sell.

It wasn’t a business with long term revenue ideals. It’s just the situation its found itself in...they planned everything without Trafalgars business coming their way so it can’t really be just about revenue....theyre just filling the void. Short term I agree, long term I say no. The NCC need to think and act more urgently than what they are. Rayon Mackenzie.

water and toxic sprays - thus people who ate the fruit would be healthier - bleating on about water costs and thinking dams might be the go - is old industrial agri-cultural thinking - its the 21st century come into the light .....i am seriously serious about what i see as mass wastage by the farmers out here unity1nz (website).

Should have thought about long term needs when plans where made for this venue in my mind and in the grand scheme of things to add spectator areas to this venue would have paid off. As for spectator events taking over from other events we did without this venue for years when it came to club basketball so don’t see why other events/ clubs don’t yo back to the old setup which in some cases provided a better ‘club’ inclusion feel. Jeff Mahon.

Muddy Buddy: Not to be missed. Great event. Well done Tasman School and Muddy Buddy organizers. Judene Edgar.

Water use: Since moving out here to Redwood Valley I have seen so much industrial farming wastage -roads sheds trees being watered by high powered sprayers - this is the 21st century - industrial farming with its intense watering and high chemical spraying to make a crop viable for market is the WRONG way to farm and the costs are getting to high to support it. Take an apple or vineyard for example - using all the wood chip that farmers currently ‘burn’ off would lesson the rate of water usage, add a beehive and complementary herbs in the rows and you would create a higher juicer flavor with mini costs in both

North Island landscape wows visitors I thought ‘wow’. I took a photograph of it and painted it from there,” she says. The painting took about a month to complete because of all of the small detail. The Tasman Visual Arts Group exhibition was held at Eyebright throughout last week and was a huge success with hundreds of people coming through to check it out. All of the visitors were asked to vote for their favourite piece and Jean was hon-

A painting of a North Island landscape was voted People’s Choice at the recent Tasman Visual Arts Group exhibition. Local artist Jean Jackson says the painting “The Woodland” was born from a scene she captured on camera whilst en route to visit some friends in the North Island about a year ago. “I can’t exactly say where it was but it was further north than Auckland. We were just driving along and

oured to have received the most votes. “It’s always a great compliment for any artist when your artwork is chosen by visitors as the winner of an art exhibition, particularly on this occasion for me with such an array of talented artists.” Jean has an exhibition at the Suter Art Gallery from May to June where she showcases her “animals in landscapes” style. The winning painting is still for sale.

Daredevils prepare for derby

It’s that time of the year where hundreds of daredevils in trolleys race down Collingwood St, and Nayland Primary School student Logan Andrews can’t wait. Logan will be entered in the zoomers class of the Robertson’s Collingwood St Trolley Derby this Saturday starting from 10am. The trolley was built by some students at his school around four years ago and was raced as a school trolley. Logan Andrews, 8, will be competing at this Logan has borrowed a trolley in weekend’s Trolley Derby. Photo: Phillip Rollo. each of the years he has competed

in the derby, and with the school trolley not being used this year, he asked if he could race in it. He says the trolley derby is “fun” and enjoys being able to race in front of friends and family. He even has younger siblings who will be competing in the nippers class. Logan’s practice for this year’s event has been very minimal, just having a few runs down the driveway, but he’s hoping to win this weekend. The trolley derby is split into four age categories – nippers, zoomers, sprinters and rockets.

Nelson Young Professionals (NYP) is a fantastic organization for the next generation of leaders and decisionmakers in the Nelson region. NYP brings together young professionals in an effort to build on their skills and knowledge through the generation of social networks and lessons learned from those who have previously succeeded. NYP was established in 2009 to foster cross industry and cross profession relationships, so that members are able to develop both personally and professionally. Although the number of members is about 200, the focus for NYP this year is to make more people aware of the group and the great opportuni-

ties that the organization can offer to young professionals in the region. “Last year we really focused on gaining momentum, becoming active and getting out there again. NYP is really useful for making contacts. Other networking opportunities are based mainly for senior level partners or associates. There isn’t really an opportunity for networking at a junior level. By having our events we are networking at the lower level,” says committee president Michelle Byczkow. As serious as this may sound, the most important thing about NYP is having fun and creating new relationships. The NYP committee is constantly organizing events where their mem-

These talks are broad in their topics to ensure their relevance to a number of people, yet focused enough that the information suits the situations of those attending. The committee tries to hold one large event every month and next week they will be holding a BBQ in the Vines at Kaimira Estate. Between speakers and major events, NYP also have monthly meetings at Rhythm and Brown, where they enjoy a social drink and a catch up. Although the target market for NYP is those in the first 15 years of their profession, the term professional is used very loosely. NYP applies to any profession and this is what makes it such a diverse and interesting organization. It includes lawyers, dentists, accountants and doctors as well as dental assistants, teachers and office assistants. A membership fee of $20 is charged which goes towards the events and the general running of the organization.

Poppy Thai prides itself on creating the best quality Thai food. Their cuisine is well known for being hot and spicy and for its balance of five fundamental flavors in each dish or the overall meal. These five elements are bitterness, saltiness, sourness, sweetness and umami which can be described as savoury or meatiness. Poppy Thai creates signature dishes and balances numerous combinations of spices, herbs and seasonings to orchestrate the fundamental flavours in each of their meals.

Got a story?

51 Collingwood Street Ph: 545 8214

• Wednesday, February 12, my birthday. I wake to a lovely day, and plan accordingly. All activities will be pleasant and exactly what I want to do. Not a problem. The day moves along swimmingly and then I took a step backward, to admire something. That’s all it took. Just one little step and I went crashing down really hard There was pain, and a feeling that something was wrong. One glance showed a wrist in the shape of a caterpillar on the incline. And it wouldn’t straighten out, no matter what. • Three hours later, we return from hospital. My arm in a very solid cast, and with instructions to be careful because it was a bad break. My arm would be in plaster for six weeks. Oh well. Nothing for it but to do as I’m told, and behave myself. • Our house has wrap around verandas, so it is easy to find a pleasant spot to sit and view the garden, and that has been my daily activity. This garden is lovely in late winter with various coloured hellebores enjoying themselves. However, I’m thinking the garden could be improved during the summer season with colourful fuchsias So that is first on the Things To Do list. There are two birdbaths in this space as well, both supporting empty pots. I quite like an empty pot or two

about the place, and these two didn’t bother me. But I am thinking to make a change there. Dianne, who works with us in Blenheim, told me of a bird station that she has made. It is successful and so simple to make. She has used a hanging wire planter, which had been lined with coconut fibre. Inside the planter she placed a plastic saucer, the kind that you use to catch water under a flower pot. This is used as the meal tray for the bird food. It is highly successful she tells me, with parent birds bringing their families to feed yearly. So I have thought to remove one of the empty pots, and restore the birdbath to its original purpose. Then the birds can take a bath straight after breakfast if they want to and start the day with a clean slate. So that’s second on The List. • Marie Shelly cleared a space so that a lovely tree trunk is visible from my breakfast spot. I am enjoying that, and have gone a little further to think that some foliage at ground level could be removed to allow some dappled sunlight to filter through. During this tidy up, it was discovered that an evergreen azalea had decided that enough was enough, and stopped living. It’s a shame, because over the years the plant had developed an attractive layered shape.

The age range for our Friday group is mainly 1214 year olds. Several of the leaders are trained in youth work or secondary school teaching and are background checked.

A mysterious sound

Men’s Forum

A vicar’s random thoughts…

Messy Church,

A friend of mine goes tramping a lot. He loves the mountains when they are snow-clad; the wildness of the bush; the roaring seas of the West Coast. He especially loves the bird song. Years ago, when we were on holiday, I had a dream. I woke up sobbing. In my dream I couldn’t find my mother – anywhere. The sense of grief was heartrending. I couldn’t shake that grief while we were away. When we got home my Mum told me she had terminal cancer. Have you heard God speak? You’re already saying “No” aren’t you? Some people think God stopped speaking when the Bible was written. Some think it’s crazy to think that God would bother to speak to ordinary people. Maybe he’d just speak to the important ones. But is it crazy? Or does God speak today? Mother Theresa heard God’s voice in the beggars’ cries in Calcutta. Martin Luther King heard God’s voice for justice when he saw how black people were treated in the US. An ordinary father tucks his child in at bedtime. His child reaches out to touch his cheek.

A room of students was listening to the lecturer reading a Bible story. In that story Jesus touched someone and healed them from an awful skin disease. The students were asked to close their eyes and imagine themselves in the Bible scene. One student ‘saw’ Jesus look at them, with love-filled eyes. Another ‘heard’ him say ‘I’ll heal you too’. It seems to me that God speaks in so many wonderful ways to all of us, if we but notice. I wonder how God speaks to you… — Susan Gill, Vicar

Volunteer Fire Fighter Awareness The Tasman community owes a lot to its volunteer fire service. These unsung heroes go about their everyday lives but as soon as the fire siren sounds they jump into action, don their uniforms and respond to save homes, properties and lives. The New Zealand Fire Service relies on thousands of volunteers all over the country who donate their time and effort to help communities protect what they value. Our region is lucky enough to have the protection of local volunteer fire brigades in Murchison, Richmond, Wakefield, Tapawera, Upper Moutere and Mapua, as well as the rural fire services based in Appleby, St Arnaud and Brightwater. Each one is paramount to the safety of our families, schools, homes, businesses and properties. Although volunteer fire fighters get a lot of satisfaction out of helping people and keeping them safe, their love for the job must be applauded by the public as it is a huge commitment and sacrifice for many of those with families

Volunteer Firefighters use a container burn to show how fire reacts with normal household items and learn techniques to control and extinguish fire.

and jobs. Whether they’re having dinner with family or going about their everyday activities, when that siren goes it’s a 100% commitment to the community and they get there as soon as they can. Volunteers are required to attend courses over nine days for training at a recruit level when they initially become a firefighter, and the rest of the skills they need are learnt throughout their career both in the

field and at training courses. Volunteers are able to bring a whole new set of skills and experiences from their lives to the fire service that benefit the quality of the organisation. Their adaptability to new situations and demands can be seen in their increased involvement and capability in responding to medical incidents which is a whole new skill set requiring training that will be a further drain on their freely given time.

ther drain on their freely given time. Assistant Area Commander Rob Allan began his career as a volunteer firefighter in the Stoke Volunteer Fire Brigade, “I have a special affinity with volunteers because I started off as one and if it wasn’t for earlier volunteer fire fighters within my career, I wouldn’t be where I am now,” he says. “It was those men who recommended me to the service and allowed me to gain the position that I now have. Many recruits within the professional service come from the volunteer ranks, so there is still a defined career path. Volunteer fire fighters can still come through and become a part of the professional staff.”

Hey, don’t those Volunteer Fire Fighters do an awesome job?


Efficiency is vital for the fire service and each appliance is well equipped with fire fighting equipment so from the time the pager message reaches the volunteers at home or work to the time the truck is ready to pull out of the station, response time is usually only around four minutes. Murchison Volunteer Fire Brigade Chief Fire Officer Paul Wilkins says the volunteer service for his district is extremely important not only to the community, but to travelers passing through. He says the huge area they cover includes Murchison, up to Station Creek, the Buller Gorge and to the top of the Hope Saddle, and they play a huge role in supporting ambulance services in the event of a traffic accident, with 20% of callouts fire related while the other 80% are mostly motor vehicle rescue and medical emergency incidents. “It’s very important to our community that we have volunteer firefighters.

Volunteer Fire Fighter Awareness huge difference because we are so isolated, there is no one else closer than an hour either way. We are it, although we get fantastic support from the Rescue Helicopter.” The work ethic of volunteer fire fighters is to be highly commended within their communities. Without this major component within the New Zealand Fire service they would be unable to operate and those who are interested in joining a volunteer brigade in the fire service are greatly encouraged to do so. Our volunteer fire fighters perform a vital service to our communities and we can thank them by doing our part to minimize risks by following home fire safety basics such as ensuring your home has working smoke alarms. Anyone considering becoming a part of their local fire brigade can visit the NZFS website at or call their local station. Remember, in an emergency always dial 111.

Vivienne and Gordon Moody have been volunteering with Red Cross for 24 years.

There are a number of reasons why people become volunteers, but for Maureen Ashton it was to “give a helping hand in the community”, and she’s never looked back. The Stoke woman has been helping with Meals on Wheels for the past 17 years. Tuesday is her day, and she travels to the pick-up area and spends about half an hour going around distributing lunches and desserts to those on the list. This week marks the annual appeal week for New Zealand Red Cross and they are currently looking for more volunteers to help with Meals on

Wheels, community transport and the community visitors service. Maureen never expected to be a volunteer for 17 years, and wasn’t even aware it had been that long. “The time just seems to have passed. I enjoy it and I enjoy the contact with the more elderly.” Richmond couple Gordon and Vivienne Moody also help out with Meals on Wheels and have been doing so for the past 24 years. “I quite enjoy it. You get to know the clients so well, you see,” says Gordon. When the Moodys signed up to become volunteers, it was


mainly Gordon’s role and Vivienne would help out when he couldn’t. But now it seems to have gone the other way and Gordon says he’s the “emergency driver”. Gordon says the funniest moment was probably when he accidentally ran over the dessert. Even though they been volunteering for nearly a quarter of a century, it’s something both Gordon and Vivienne don’t plan to stop any time soon. “Society runs on volunteers. I spent 20 years in Scouts and that’s when I realized everybody volunteers for things.”

Considering how fearsome he is with the bat, it’s probably no surprise to hear that Tom Cross has given up playing rugby to focus on his cricket. The talented 22 year old is currently averaging 105.5 runs for Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers and even he admits his current form is the best of his career. “92, I think 65?, 174, and 62 not out,” Tom says, running through his stats from the past four matches before the weekend’s 14 against Waimea Toi Toi United. “I’m very happy, especially to get that first 100 for the club. I’m on the honours board at Wanderers so it’s good.” For the first time in a long time, Wanderers are one of the big players in Nelson Cricket. They’ve been involved in both the two-day and twenty20 finals – the latter it won by ten wickets. Tom has been a key part of that success – he hit an unbeaten 62 runs in the twenty20 final win, and just two weeks ago he smashed 17 sixes to score 174 runs in his side’s record 501/4 one day total. “It’s been good. We’ve made two finals and

Falcons confident ahead of national final

This weekend’s ASB Youth League final at Trafalgar Park will be the biggest football game to be played in the region in more than a decade, and the captain of the home side is confident that the Nelson Marlborough Falcons will be the ones celebrating come full-time. Coey Turipa will lead the New Zealand King Salmon Falcons against Auckland City this Saturday, in just their second season of national league football, and he says the prospect of playing in a national final still hasn’t sunk in yet. “I think when that when first whistle blows against Auckland City then it’ll hit us. We’ll really know we’re in a final and we’re a really good chance of winning a final and in front of a home crowd,” he says.

SPORT Briefs SPEEDWAY: The Nelson Tigers have finished second place at the Superstock Teams Nationals at Waikaraka Park, losing the final to arch enemies, the Palmerston North Panthers. While the Panthers made up for their embarrassing performance at the Teams Champs, the second placing was another respectable finish for the Nelson Tigers. CRICKET: With just two rounds remaining in the Car Company Nelson Cricket One Day competition, both Wanderers and Waimea Toi Toi United remain firmly in the hunt for a finals placing. WTTU’s win over Wanderers on the weekend has meant Stoke-Nayland now lead the championship, with Wanderers in second and WTTU in third. Wanderers have two tough games left, coming up against fourth placed Wakatu and Stoke-Nayland.

The Falcons won eight straight games to book a place in the ASB Youth League final with two rounds to spare. Since qualifying, coach Davor Tavich has given nearly every single player a run and decided to rest most of the senior players during that spell. Nelson lost to YoungHeart Manawatu and Canterbury United in those games but it shouldn’t be a worry for a team that managed to scrap out wins when it counted, even in the most unlikely situations. Auckland City, the defending champions, haven’t lost a game all season and enter the final with an eight win, two draw record. Ross McPhie, who actually played for Nelson Suburbs and scored a goal in the Chatham Cup when he was just 14 years

k c i p

talented individuals across the park. “Fox [Slotemaker, who lives in Auckland] has gone to watch them so hopefully he’ll be able to give us a bit of goss, but we’re not afraid of them. I’m highly confident that come the final whistle on Saturday we’ll have the national premiership.” The former New Zealand Under-20 ‘keeper has relished the opportunity to captain the Falcons this year, after foundation skipper Mark Johnston moved into the assistant coaching role. “There’s a lot of background, off-the-field stuff but I’ve really enjoyed it. It’s been an honour to captain the region.” The ASB Youth League final kicks off at 1pm at Trafalgar Park this Saturday, with a curtain raiser match from 10am.
