TDC attendance released Zane Mirfin is the least likely councillor to turn up to a council meeting, figures released this week reveal. The first term Richmond ward councillor turned up to 93 out of a possible 120 meetings, well below the next lowest, Tim King at 101 appearances. Most of the other councillors attended between 103 and 110 of the council and standing committee meetings that have been held since the last election in 2010.

Andrew Board Editor Golden Bay councillor Paul Sangster has attended 68 meetings but started half way through the term after winning a by-election for Noel Reilly’s vacant seat. Tasman mayor Richard Kempthorne says the figures – released to Waimea Weekly on

Monday – show that the council is committed. “I think it reflects the councillors are a committed hard working bunch of people.” He says he’s not disappointed with Zane’s attendance and neither should ratepayers. “I think that reflects the nature of Zane’s job as a [fishing] guide and in the summer he does get quite busy and sometimes just can’t attend. I think it’s a reality for all of us. If you look at what councillors get paid,

it’s far from a full time salary and they too have other part time jobs that have to fit in with council life and for what Zane does it’s just a reality.” Attempts to reach Zane for comment were unsuccessful. The highest attending councillors were Motueka’s Jack Inglis with 111, followed by Richmond’s Judene Edgar, Waimea/ SEE PAGE 2

Lovely jam for ‘lovlies’

“Lovely people” might find a sweet surprise in their staff rooms this week as part of a drive to spread the love and help put a smile on the faces of those who deserve it most. The project is the brainchild of Michelle Collier who wanted to acknowledge those who go beyond the call of duty in their workplace. She calls it “The Loveliness Project” and along with friend Linda Homan, convinced their mothers and a dozen of their mother’s friends to make jars of jam to deliver to staff rooms of those who SEE PAGE 2

TDC attendance figures released FROM PAGE 1 Moutere’s Trevor Norriss and Murchison/ Lake’s Stu Bryant who all attended 110 meetings. Judene says the meetings are extremely important and was pleased that a number of councillors had high attendance. “The standing committees are the key ones where we are making decisions on behalf of the community and the council so attendance is important. That being said, so is being prepared for the meetings so a lot of time is put in outside of meetings, to understand the issues.” The current council term ends after the local body elections in October this year. Judene says people thinking about standing for council need to make sure they have the time to dedicate to the job.

Michelle also wanted to spread a bit of love to social workers and others who went out of their way and says by just having something like homemade jam for them to use in their staffroom might go some way to return-

I remember a lovely lady Denise used to bring in homemade Feijoa jam and chutney

for the staff room and it was just really nice to come in and have something like that when you’ve been working flat out.” The dozen jam makers were recruited after being invited to a high tea by Michelle and Linda. There they told them the real reason they were invited along and Michelle says most of them came on board and began to source fruit and jam recipes and got to work. Now they have 120 jars, each with the words “Lovely Jam for Lovely People” which will be distributed from this week. Michelle says she hopes it will bring a smile to some people. “I just want them to realise that what they do is really important and it is appreciated.

Schools get free milk

Sinead Ogilvie Reporter

Sara Davidson

A group of twenty-two primary students from schools all over Nelson were the first to sample milk that will be given to local pupils as part of the Fonterra Milk for Schools programme. The initiative will see a free pack of milk given daily to 2000 schools across New Zealand, with a goal of seeing more children accessing the nutritional benefits of milk. The initiative was launched for the upper South Island on Monday at Brightwater School with principal Gerald Baldwin calling the programme “marvelous” and praising Fonterra for its sponsorship. “It is really positive for the children to drink something healthy in a school environment and for a New Zealand company to be so supportive, it’s great.” Pete Mitchener principal of Stoke School, which already offers a fruit in school and breakfast club programme, says Milk for Schools is “a wonderful idea. We surveyed our community and received 100 per cent support from parents saying they thought it was a great programme.” As part of the roll out of the initiative, the children visited a local farm to learn about sus-

tainable dairy farming which Gerald says the kids thoroughly enjoyed. “It’s a great opportunity for them to learn about where the milk they’ll be drinking every day comes from, as well as the importance of caring for the environment. We’re really excited to start the Fonterra Milk for Schools programme in our school and today’s event was an added bonus that presented an excellent educational experience.” Local farmers David and Pauline Marshall hosted the students and say they enjoyed it. “That’s what Fonterra Milk for Schools is all about – Fonterra farmers and staff, and teachers working together for the health of kiwi kids – and that’s what this morning is all about

as well.” Fonterra’s Carly Robinson says the co-op is proud to have almost rolled out the programme to the whole of the South Island. “After piloting the programme in Northland last year, we began rolling it out nationwide last month, starting in Invercargill and working our way north. Nelson, Tasman, Marlborough and the West Coast are the final four regions to get the programme in the South Island, so we’re heading to the North Island next. It is great to have milk in schools and we hope to grow a new generation of dairy consumers for the future from this.” Almost 500 schools nationwide are now on board with the programme.

NEWS Sicon to shutdown in brief B AND B EARNS AWARD: Local business, Kershaw House Boutique Accommodation, has announced that it has received the 2013 TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade, which honours hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveller reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Only the top-performing 10 per cent of businesses listed on TripAdvisor receive the award. SANCTUARY RUN FILLING UP: Only 15 places remain for this year’s Haven Realty Sanctuary Run on August 24. Marketing energies are now being directed to attracting a similar number to October’s Dun Run which doubles this year as the South Island Masters Trail Running Championships.

BOOK FAIR A SUCCESS: This year’s silver jubilee Founders Book Fair raised $124,500 with an estimated 10,000 bookworms visiting the popular event. The nine-day event is in its 25th year and is the major fundraiser for Founders Heritage Park.

The loss of a major contract has caused the Nelson branch of Sicon to shutdown permanantly. The company missed out on a contract with the Tasman District Council which is worth 90 per cent of its income, making it unviable for the business to con-

cided to pull back,” says Dave. Around 40 local people are employed by Sicon in Nelson and Dave says the majority will be reapplying for work with the new contractor while the others are taking the opportunity to try something new.

Community hub for St Arnaud

A $1.1 million project in the centre of St Arnaud officially opened its doors on Saturday, creating a “fantastic” attraction for the area says Pat Gelling, the driving force behind the new development. Pat says a tremendous amount of effort from the public went into getting the cafe, boat storage shed and gift shop up and running and it has created the perfect “community hub”, with a promising future. The privately owned land it sites on is set for development. Pat says while the complex has created numerous new employment opportunities for locals, it is also set to become a major attraction for the area, well known for its boating community. The onsite Clinker Café, which seats up to 80 people will be open seven days for dining including during the evening, something that Pat says

He says a highlight of watching the project come together has been the growing use of the boat storage shed, and hopes that the complex will house a boat display during the summer months. “The boat storage shed has been operational for a number of months already and has been very successful. With the capacity for 32 standard size boats, it is

a definite draw card.” He says the complex would not have come so far without the support from the local community, who he says dropped everything to help out when they were needed. “We’ve had tremendous support from locals. If we needed a hand we sent out the SOS and they helped out. It’s going to be a fantastic shared facility for our community.”

FREE CHILDCARE Parents rave about our teaching team


Tiny Tots First 12 hours free for under 2’s

No Strings attached! Phone Ness 544 3918 2 Cautley Street, Richmond

It’s a fantastic deal that will have new mums talking! Paula’s Tiny Tots Richmond has announced that childcare fees for under 2’s are no more. Manager Ant Holder says this is huge for families in our community. “Childcare fees can be a real burden for family budgets, we want to let people know that our little centre Tiny Tots, is now offering the first 12 hours of childcare at Paula’s Tiny Tots free for children under the age of 2. Parent fees will remain at $5.00 per hour thereafter.” WOW. This amazing deal won’t affect the quality of our program says Ant. “We continue to receive fantastic ERO reports from the Ministry of Education.” His message is simple. “Parents, do the maths, if you are paying $7.00 per hour and attend a centre for 12 hours a week, that’s

a savings of $84.00 you don’t need to spend. That’s an annual savings of over $4000.00 per year on childcare fees.” Tiny Tots Richmond is the small centre with a big heart. Only 15 spaces are available, this provides a small but warm, nurturing environment. Parents rave about our teaching team who together, provide fantastic learning opportunities dedicated towards infants and toddlers. Our indoor environment is homely and children love exploring our outdoor play areas. Children also receive preference and access to spaces at Paula’s Preschool Richmond and the highly regarded Richmond Academy when they are ready. Spaces are limited and parents will need to act quickly to secure their space. Contact Ness for an enrolment pack or visit today. Business Update. Adv.

New village Win for Headingly residents Sinead Ogilvie planned for Richmond

A new high density lifestyle village aimed at active retirees is being planned for development on a site off Wensley Rd in Richmond. A private meeting was held last week between developers Mark and Kristin Nimmo, owners of the Integrity Care Group and Stillwater Gardens and the owners of neighbouring properties to initiate communications as resource consent goes before the Tasman District Council. The initial plans for Olive Estate Lifestyle Village show the residential retirement development will house 112 villas, 30 terrace houses and 26 apartments and a long term residential care facility with capacity for 100 beds and 58 serviced apartments. Kristin says feedback on the project from neighbouring properties has so far been “generally positive” and where further information has been requested they have provided it.” However one concerned resident, Mark Greening, whose parents’ property backs onto the proposed development says he is wary of plans to build such a high density village on previously undeveloped land and doesn’t think the Nimmo’s have found the right spot for their venture. He believes that any retirement village should be planned closer to public transport, shops and communtiy services and hopes the project will be publicly notified allowing input and opinions from the wider community to be taken into consideration. “My advice for neighbouring residents is to take any concerns you have about it directly to the council.”

Headingly Lane residents that saw their rates skyrocket have been given some respite with the council adopting a rates remission policy. After a year of lobbying, which was first reported by the Waimea Weekly, the policy will come into effect before July this year. The policy means residential landowners, who have had the value of their land increased due to rezoning, will have their higher rates remitted until the land is sold or its purpose changed from its role as the principal place of residence. Maxwell Clarke, a resident directly af-


fected by the rezoning, says he was “very proud” of the successful bid and says he hopes the council will now have “the wisdom to accept what people are telling them”. He says he was also blown away by the amount of support from the wider community with 56 seperate submissions recieved on the matter. Tasman residents were given the choice

of rates remission or postponement policies through the annual plan process and the majority of the submissions supported the remission option. The new policy will have a number of criteria to ensure it benefits those in need while limiting the impact on other Tasman ratepayers. It will be applied at the discretion of the council, apply to properties that have had continuous ownership pre and post the zoning change and only apply to rezoning decisions made after 2007. Applications for the current rating year (2012-2013) will be accepted up until 30 August.

Caleb is thrilled with the response he has received with enquiries flooding in via email, in person and at his weekly Saturday market stall. Gors-tec pants are now stocked at Mortimer’s Upholstery, the Nelson and Motueka market and will soon be online at Caleb’s new website At the end of every month Caleb plans on donating $5 of every pair of Gors-tec pants sold to a charity nominated by fans of his facebook page.

Nelson Mail takes circulation hit

Nelson Mail has taken another huge hit to its circulation, the biggest drop of any daily newspaper in the South Island. The Australian-owned Nelson Mail has seen its paid circulation drop 6.29 per cent on the same time last year to just 13,464, show figures released by ABC Circulation. At the same time last year its circulation was 14,943 but that also includes a large undetermined numbers of papers it gives away for free. Its website still quotes a circulation of 17,497 from 2007. The figures showed that the Mail had the biggest drop, percentage wise, in the

South Island with The Southland Times the next worst at 5.59 per cent, Oamaru Mail at 5.31 per cent and Marlborough Express at 5.28 per cent. Nelson Mail general manager Craig Dennis says it’s a tough time for daily newspapers. “Daily paper circulation has been challenging for us for some time as it has in line with newspapers across the country and world but readership is growing across all platforms. While our average total circulation year on year has declined from 14,943 in March 2012 to 14,093 March 2013, our newspaper

readership as surveyed by Nielson shows average weekly readership at 54,000 different readers compared to 56,000 one year prior.” The Mail’s staff has also decreased with much of the publishing work now being done in other centres in New Zealand, Australia and Asia. The bottom half of the Mail’s Bridge St building is also being marketed for lease. But Craig says despite the decrease the digital future is bright. “The most remarkable story is online where growth continues unabated.” The Mail’s website links to the NZ wide deal sonic sat r e p su fri! hur! only

The Nelson Tasman Free Funding Expo was well received by a steady crowd of local community, charity, school and sports group representatives on Friday. They soaked up the full day of information, training and networking on offer from local and national experts and attended workshops offering inside information on finding funding sources, insight into potential charity fatigue in Nelson and the dos and don’ts of successfully applying for grants and funds. Information was also on display from the Fundraising Institute of New Zealand, Charities Services, local councils, Sport Tasman, the Department of Internal Affairs and the Nelson Arts Council giving attendees the opportunity to talk directly to funders and service providers that support the notfor-profit sector.

Free feed for largest family The search is on for the region’s largest family. Cafe Olive owner Harkin Aslankilinc says he wants to not only find them, but also shout the family a meal at his central city restaurant. There are rules though, a family is defined as two parents and their children only and the majority of the children must be under 18. Harkin says the idea behind the competition is to celebrate families and get them out enjoying each other over a meal this winter.

“If you have a big family it would cost a lot to take them out to dinner so we want to be able to say ‘hey, come here, enjoy yourself and enjoy each other’s company’.” Harkan guesses he may be catering for up to 12 and can handle “up to 50” but he says he’d be “shocked and sorry for the mum” if that was the case. If you think you are a part of the region’s largest family or if you know of them, email us at edito or call on 548 4949.

Donation goes to worthy cause

Donations recieved from the local community in the aftermath of the Richmond floods have gone to a worthy cause. Karen Marfell, site manager of BP Richmond, says she was overwhelmed with the response recieved from residents who dropped money into the donation bucket she had on the counter in the weeks following the flood. A total of $250 was raised by what she describes as “a caring community” and the donation was gratefully recieved by

a Richmond couple who along with evacuating a newborn baby from their Arbor-lea Ave rental property, lost virtually everything they owned. With no insurance to cover the loss, Gemma Astwood and Tom Haworth have been living in a Salvation Army home ever since and say they can’t believe the kindness of the community and the team at BP for donating the money to them. Michael Harte, Nelson area manager of BP matched the donation with a $250 giftcard.

WEDNESDAY 12 June 2013


brought to you by

Waimea Village: Has anyone else ‘done the numbers’ on the Wrights income? I worked it out, and this year, they’ve been getting $377,196 per annum, which they now plan to increase to $628,529. And I have to ask - to do what? Mow the lawns and take away the green waste? I think a portion is to be put into a fund for repairs and replacement, but what portion - half? It’s still a damn good income! Wow - how many of us would like a salary like that here in Nelson? Yours faithfully, G Ewers, Appleby. Once again the Wright’s have stunned the residents, not only with another hefty lease increase, in the 2013 proposed budget, but in the manner in which it was presented. A cowardly impersonal, insensitive, public statement in the Nelson Mail. Nice one guys!! Especially as at every opportunity you have accused the residents committee of releasing confidential information to the press. At an “informal chat”, called at two days notice by the Wright’s, those residents who were able to attend were treated with patronising disrespect, told to be quiet and listen, as we didn’t understand business. I’d like the Wrights to understand this. Many of the people in this village are retired business people, professional people, intelligent people, and not as they see them – a bunch of old geriatrics with half a brain

between them. Many of us are of a generation who worked for what we have (a concept beyond the Wrights comprehension) saved for our retirement and expected to be able to relax and enjoy the twilight years of our lives. Instead, the reality of living in Waimea Village is soul destroying. Low morale, worrying how to cope, illness and stress related sicknesses are to the fore. Trying to see where the extra monies given over the last three years has been spent – certainly not in the village as was proposed. Many of us suspect we are supporting the luxury lifestyle of two exceptionally greedy people. While the Wrights and their children reap the benefits of our labours, we will eventually have nothing left, not only for ourselves, but our children and grandchildren. To these uncaring, unthoughtful, insensitive people we have ceased to be humans with feelings, and have become their “cash cows”. Please don’t print my name as I have already suffered reprisals.

Stray cats a problem: Sooo over the strays! They keep beating my cat up but the neighbours feel sorry for them and feed the poor things. I think SPCA traps are needed. Sarah Davis. People also dump cats in the creek that runs beside the homes in Torlesse St, in the past year we have gone from having a stray cat to now having nearly a dozen. Is driving us bonkers having to try and keep our cat safe, and having to clean up the mess that these strays are leaving around the place. Mel Ricketts. Comes down to the ignorance of the cat owners dosen’t it? This may have all started by having just 3-5 kittens dumped, then the unfortunate cycle starts up, they breed like rabbits, so yeah what can be done?

60 years in spuds at Tapawera farm Mashed, boiled, roasted or fried, Harry Hancock says you can never eat too many potatoes, and he should know. He planted his first potato 60 years ago, and his Tapawera based family have prospered in spuds ever since. After moving onto a farm in Glenrae near the Motueka River in 1952, Harry and his wife Joan set up a flourishing potato farm, supplying everyone from the local fish and chip shop, a green grocer, local markets, and neighbours. Living off the land was common when Harry moved in, with local families growing blackberries, raspberries, farming cows and potatoes, and with the help of a neighbours tools, Harry planted his first crop.

“I chose to start out with potatoes because there was a fairly immediate return. You could plant them in October and be eating them by May. We stuck with them over the years and they gave me the better part of my income.” Harry never farmed in a big way, but says there was a good five acres of potatoes in the ground each season. They were “happy to bring in 10 tonne at the end of the season” from the crop and although the work was hard, it was always rewarding. “It was physically hard, your back was bent and you carried your sack around with you but once we picked up the last potato we were glad to be finished harvesting, it was always good to grow a good crop.” The farm is no longer commercially run but is still in the family, with Harry’s daughter Jill and her husband taking over a few years ago. They still use a planter that was used early on, with a manual that offers instructions for both mechanical and horse drawn use, a token of history from the farm which Harry says has always been a family business. “Joan picked potatoes

and had children around the same time, there was always work to be done. It was great having the kids involved, every day when they came home from school there was something for them to do.” Harry says he is pleased that the farm remains in the family, and as well as keeping history alive it has its benefits too with friends and family still kept in steady supply. “They still look after us, I shouldn’t think there will ever be a day when I’m short of potatoes.” Over the years, Harry has tried all kinds of variety of potato. Rua has proven to be the best, being a good grower and unsusceptible to blight, it is not only consistent but is Harry’s favourite to eat. “We’ve grown a few interesting types of potato but Rua has proven to be the best. Mashed Rua is probably my favourite.” Two weeks ago the Hancocks held a celebration to mark 60 years since Harry and his family have been growing potatoes. While Harry has hung up his hat on the growing side of things, potatoes still remain a staple in his diet. “Oh dear yes, you never get tired of them, they are part of a good diet. I don’t think you could ever eat too many potatoes. My figure has never worried me.”

Reward for volunteer refs A new campaign aimed at stopping abuse towards volunteer parent referees and rewarding them for their efforts has been launched. Richmond Mall and Tasman Rugby Union has combined to acknowledge the efforts of volunteer referees at junior rugby games across Nelson and Tasman and will give one $100 Richmond Mall voucher to a volunteer referee each week for the next ten weeks. Richmond Mall manager David Hill says the Mall wanted to support those who give up time in the community. “We salute

those mums and dads who give up their Saturday mornings to ensure the kids of Nelson and Tasman can enjoy their rugby. JAB rugby is only possible because of those who take up a whistle and keep the game going.” The campaign runs in support of the New Zealand Rugby initiative APPLAUD, which encourages supporters to be good sports at schools and clubs, while also seeking to stamp out anti-social side-line behaviour. Around 75 volunteers have participated in Tasman Rugby Union’s junior referee course this year. TRU development

officer Kahu Marfell says abusive behaviour on the side-lines of all sporting codes is an issue and anything to promote good behaviour on side-lines is welcomed. “Living through your kid is probably the wrong thing and some parents overstep the mark. Without these volunteers who coach and referee games there wouldn’t be a sport for their child to play. So we are encouraging clubs to make a stand and say that behaviour isn’t acceptable and if we can reward those people who step up to the plate and actually do these jobs, then it’s great.” Kahu says abuse towards junior rugby ref-

erees isn’t as bad in Nelson as other centres but it does happen. “Even at ripper rugby we’ve had parents complain about referees but what are we here for at the end of the day? It’s to watch the kids and you ask the kids if they like mum and dad screaming and yelling on the side line they say no.” He says it’s great that Richmond Mall has decided to come on board and help reward those who put their hand up to help out. “Good on Richmond Mall for getting involved and helping celebrate these people.” Each week for the next ten, the TRU will select a winner.

He tangata, He tangata, He tangata. It Is people, It Is people, It Is people.

National Volunteer Week runs from Sunday 16 to Saturday 22 June with the efforts of local volunteers being recognised and celebrated. Volunteers fulfill an essential role in our community. In the Nelson Tasman region last year approximately 3,000,000 hours were volunteered, and without this support many of the services and facilities that we take for granted could not be provided. The theme for 2013 NVW is “He tāngata, He tāngata, He tāngata!” Translated as “It is people, it is people, it is people,” this theme recognises the life force of volunteering- the people. The week identifies the significant contributions that volunteers make to the Nelson community and the help they provide to people and dependant organisations. Volunteers play a major

role in the Nelson community attributing to over 3 million hours of service in the past year. Volunteer Nelson Manager Katy Steele says a great thing about volunteering is that it is very broad and versatile offering a role for everybody. “It is important for volunteers to know that they can help in their area of interest or expertise,” says Katy. Volunteers conduct a range of roles including environmental work, offering support to refugees, support at food banks, supporting the elderly, helping out at sport clubs and events. Katy says there is also a demand for roles that volunteers can fill on the administra-

Big swim for famine Waimea College year 13 students Jacob Johnston and Kaine Ransby swam 40km at the ASB Aquatic Centre on Sunday. The students, who swim competitively for the Nelson Swimming club undertook the challenge to swim 800 lengths each in order to raise money for the 40 hour famine over the weekend. The distance works out to be the same as the shortest distance of the Cook Strait, and took Jacob and Kaine around 7 hours to complete. Proceeds from sponsorship of their challenge will go towards a $10,000 fundraising goal that the college has set for itself, in combination with local youth groups Ignite Youth, Thrive Youth Detonate Youth and Encounter Youth. This year the event will donate all funds to Bougainville, Papa New Guinea.

Wet weekend for netballers Carol Cook

Netball Reporter


The weather Gods did not quite get the order correct on Saturday when some games were played in heavy rain at Saxton Courts. The 4pm round was the worst effected as the rain poured down. I had the task of filling in as an umpire for the Waimea College Donna’s Divas against Nelson College C Grade 5 game. Umpiring is not my forte and therefore, not my most favoured part of netball – I am a great umpire on the sidelines, can see all that the officiating umpire misses but put a whistle in my mouth and I am not too crash hot. While Donna’s Divas dominated throughout the court and had a convincing 33-5 win, the game was played in great spirits in very trying conditions – I just hope I didn’t add to them. In the Grade 4 game played at Saxton Courts on Saturday Richmond Robbie’s Bar & Bistro Sleepers beat Rival Jade 3424 to maintain second place in the standings. Rival, by their own admission did not have their best game as they struggled to get the ball through the court, however goal defence, Melissa Mathieson did come in for praise from her team mates. The premier promotion/relegation game was played between Taylors Wanderers and Prices Black at Teapot Valley Community Centre on Sunday. Prices Black won the right to play as they had an unblemished record in Grade 1. Prices took to the court firing on all cylinders and were totally focussed on the game at hand. Wanderers on the other hand, appeared out of sorts from the first whistle and while not mak-

The court at Teapot Valley is not a regulation size and although it could not be used as an excuse by Wanderers, Prices did have the advantage of playing there on Thursday night. While Wanderers opened their account with their centre pass, it was all Prices from then on, scoring nine unanswered goals with shooters Leigh Leigh Wiremu and Emma Riddell finding their rhythm from the onset. Wanderers could only slot one more goal to bring the score to 2-10 at the first break. While Wanderers lifted a notch in the second period they still fell short of Prices 5-12. With Prices leading 22-7 at the major break, the game was all but gone for Wanderers however they did redeem themselves in becoming more competitive in the second half (losing 6-9 and sharing the final quarter 8 all). There were numerous passes which went astray, particularly in the attacking third.

Wanderers shooters, Kayla Fry and Kayla Cross appeared to be intimidated by the formidable goal keep Dayveen Stephens. They were denied the second opportunity with Prices defenders getting good body position for the rebound. Wanderers centre, Pip Lee toiled continuously – she hassled on defence, scrapping for every bit of loose ball. She was the punch through court, she drove onto the ball and worked hard to get to circle edge for the optimum feed to her shooters. Wanderers circle defenders Jen Horncastle and Hayley Campbell were inspirational against the slick attack as the ball rocketed in to the accurate shooters. Prices centre Ashleigh McLean was stable through court and while a little expensive Hana Wilson could be pleased with her contribution at wing defence. Congratulations to Prices Black with an impressive team performance to take the game 39-21 and their place in the premier grade for round two.

Waimea Old Boys Rugby Club


Waimea women too good for Stoke Julia Law Wet and muddy conditions made for an intense game between longtime rivals Waimea Old Boys and Stoke on Saturday. The game started in light drizzle and both teams came out knowing they would have to work hard to keep the ball in hand and get points on the board. As the weather quickly worsened, turnovers increased and it got harder to tell the teams apart, Waimea gave away a few unlucky penalties, leading to Stoke putting the first points on the board with a penalty kick. Waimea refocussed and continued on, winning the majority of line-outs and keeping the pressure on their opposition. Their hard work paid off with a try and conversion, putting Waimea in the lead at half time. The second half was just as intense and Stokes well structured plays kept Waimea under pressure and working hard on defence. After a long battle in the forwards, Stoke managed to score a try midway through the second half. Unflustered, Waimea come back showing team work and commitment, and for this the ladies were rewarded with a second try shortly after. A gruelling game for both teams and despite injuries and conditions, all ladies worked hard for the full 80 minutes, with the game ending in a well deserved win for Waimea. Players of the day were Charna Thompson and Jessica Foster. Final Score 12-10.

Waimea Bs not stoked with draw

Brent “Stew” Stewart

With the conditions resembling the backyard of Billy Bob’s cow farm the game certainly attracted only the hearty supporters. From the hit out the both teams demonstrated they where here to make a game of it. Waimea was determined to make a better start than previous games, this is evident with the stride they hit the field with. They were greedy with the early possession and laid great platforms up front which translated to good ball for the backs. In turn the backs showed a steady set of hands to enable center Paul Burt to open the scoring, unfortunately chosen kicker for the day Sy Keelan missed the conversion. The only


other scoreboard action in the first half also came Waimea's way after prop Tim Hikuroa ripped the ball off Stoke during a tackle that was impressively fed to the right-hand side where waiting Luke Thelin did a well-weighted chip over the Stoke back line, the bounce favourable for halfback Mitchell Bateman to gather and dot down. Stoke’s persistence early in the second half was rewarded by winning a line out against the throw, demonstrating that good hands can prevail in the wet and scoring a try in the righthand corner. Stoke had the first blood in the second half, and then it was Stoke's kicker’s turn to learn it was difficult as he too missed his conversion attempt. Feeling that Stoke where gaining momen-

Waimea Water Augmentation Project – Lee Valley Dam Project Management – Request for Proposal

Richmond Unlimited AGM

The Waimea Water Augmentation Project is a joint Community/Tasman District Council initiative. The project aims to ensure that there is enough water in the Waimea catchment to meet the current and future needs of irrigators, industry and urban users, as well as manage water quantity and quality for cultural, recreational and environmental reasons. The project has many facets – planning and regulatory, infrastructure, community and stakeholder relations as well as funding. The proposed Lee Valley Dam is the key physical work. The Waimea Water Augmentation Committee (WWAC) is a community group that was formed to help resolve the acute water shortage problems of the Waimea Basin. Tasman District Council has provided the WWAC with project management, coordination and administration resources to date. The project has reached a point where the scale and complexity demands further dedicated project management in particular areas. Council is now looking to appoint a Project Manager to work with Council, the WWAC, water users and the community on a number of specific tasks that need to be progressed as part of the overall project. These tasks are likely to be spread over a two year period. The project management task is strongly focused: • Land access and purchase • Resource Management Act matters including providing support for the resource consent process • Managing budget and work plans • Conditional tendering for the Dam • Governance and ownership arrangements

5.30 pm, Tuesday 9 July 2013. Meeting to take place at Miles of Food, Queen Street, Richmond. For further information, please email

Rural decisionmakers invited to participate in survey Landcare Research – Manaaki Whenua is conducting a survey of farmers, foresters, and other rural decision makers in late June and July. This nation-wide survey is Internetbased and is intended to take 15-20 minutes to complete. Topics include demographics, farm/forestry characteristics, succession plans, risk tolerance, profitability, information sources, farming/forestry objectives, management practices, and attitudes. This survey is independent of the Council. The combined results will be made publicly available. Landcare Research plans to invite approximately 700 rural decision makers in the Tasman District to participate in the survey. If you would like to participate, please send an email to

Make a Beanie competition 2013 Motueka Arts Council latest project is the Make a Beanie competition. A fun activity for winter! Knitters, sewers, needle workers can use any materials to construct a beanie during the next couple of months. Any ages can enter and there are multiple categories. It is hoped to display the Beanies during the Motueka Festival of Lights-mid July to mid August. Entries close 25 July 2013. Prizes will be awarded to the best in each category. Entry forms at Potters Patch and Needleworx in High St; - download from www. or email for a form.

• Stakeholder relationships and engagement.

Nelson Tasman Housing Forum

This project is a major one and if the Lee Valley Dam proceeds it will be the largest community project the District has undertaken, based on likely cost. We are looking for a person, or a consultancy, with the skills to take this project to the point where a decision is taken to proceed (or not) with the Dam.

The next meeting of the Nelson Tasman Housing Forum will take place on Wednesday 19 June, at 3.00 pm, in the Nelson City Council Chamber. The Honourable Minister of Housing, Dr Nick Smith will be in attendance at this meeting to discuss housing affordability. All members of the Nelson Tasman Housing Forum and interested members of the public are encouraged to attend. An agenda for this meeting will be issued during the week of 10 June 2013. For further information contact E-J Ruthven at Nelson City Council on 03 546 0436.

A copy of the Request for Proposal is available or by contacting Pamela White at Tasman District Council Proposals must be submitted by 19 June 2013.

Consent to take water subject to water metering The Measurement and Reporting of Water Takes Regulations 2010 requires the reporting of water use for the whole calendar year 1 July to 30 June each year, rather than just the summer season. However for the majority of “seasonal water users”, to assist you in meeting the Regulation requirement of weekly readings during winter, Council will accept a final reading and duplicate this reading through until October in preparation for summer water use. Telling the Council when water use ends (autumn) and recommences (spring/summer) is very important so that the Council discretion can work. For consent holders who use water all year around e.g. industry and frost protection, you are required to make water meter returns every week. For consent holders who have ceased water use please make a final reading. For those who have already let the Council know you have ceased water use, thank you. If you commence water use before October, please contact the Council on 03 543 8400 or visiting any Council Office.

The truth about grit Did you know that a gritted road is only marginally safer to drive on than an icy road? You only get 15% more grip than on an icy road. In winter driving conditions, there are a number of things you can do to be safe on the roads – allow more time for your journey, increase your following distance and watch out for ice in shady areas on bridges. Tasman District Council has scrapers for removing ice from car windows available (while stocks last) from Council offices. Pop into your nearest Council office, pick up an ice scraper and be safer on those winter roads.
