Church hits back at Weekly The Holy Trinity Church has hit back at Waimea Weekly, after it reported the church lied in last week’s issue. But the church has been caught out by its own written statements. The church felt aggrieved by the article about the felled 100 yearold oak tree, stating in a letter that the tree was not cut down because it was rotten and “any suggestions to the contrary are misinformed”. Waimea Weekly last week wrote that a report, commissioned by Tasman District Council, showed the tree was healthy and not a safety risk due to rot, despite the church saying that was one of the reasons it was cut down. Since the church felled the tree in early March there has been a public outcry. After last week’s article, several members of the parish and other community members phoned Waimea Weekly, thanking it for bringing the issue to light. Clearly the iconic tree meant a lot to the wider community. The letter by Rev. David Hollingworth to Waimea Weekly states: “The decision by the parish authorities to fell the oak tree at Holy Trinity Church, Richmond, was made in 2009. The sole reason for the tree to


be felled was the location of the proposed community centre” and “the church has never stated that the reason for felling the tree was because it was rotten.” However a press release sent to Waimea Weekly in March and signed by David said: “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.” The “expert” was a West Coast bushman, according to a local arborist, called in to cut the tree after qualified arborists refused to do the job because in their opinion the tree was healthy and should stay. The church says it did not lie because it was not aware of a report commissioned into the health of the tree, until it was too late and “the die had been cast for the felling of the tree”. Although the church admitted it saw the report in February, before the tree was felled. The report, written by an arborist, confirmed the tree was healthy and “was not a safety risk”. “The felling of the oak is a loss, but we need to keep our eyes on our vision for the future; of the light literal and metaphorical we wish to shed, and of the service we wish to offer,” wrote David.

TRIAL RUN: Appleby rural fire fighters Tom Jackman and Spike O’Donoghue prepare to do battle with this deliberately lit house fire on Sunday morning. The house, on Waimea West Rd, was believed to be around 100 years-old and was set on fire by local rural fire fighters so they could train and new fire fighters could gain experience. Brightwater Rural Fire Force Controller Mark Donaldson says he has received positive feedback from all those who attended. The house was donated for this training purpose and had remained untenanted since 2002. Photo: Teresa Hattan.

Nelson’s superyacht industry set to boom Andrew Board

Nelson is primed to be the latest must see destination for the rich and famous, creating a new million dollar industry for the region. Yesterday, a multi-million dollar superyacht sailed into Nelson Haven, the fifth this summer and with each spending around $30,000 in the region, it is having positive spinoffs for the local economy and three local businessmen say that is just the start to a new luxury tourism market in the region. John Baudier, Haden McCrorie and Dave Pinker started Yacht Services NZ last November, which, among other things, specialises in servicing superyachts. They say the number of extremely wealthy tourists coming to the region is set to explode and it could be worth millions to the local economy. The trio have in fact been so successful in getting superyachts to Nelson that Port Nelson is considering a reshuffle of the marina to accommodate them all and

Nelson Tasman Tourism is working with them to help bring more to the region. Haden, who grew up in Richmond, worked on a superyacht for eight years and his knowledge of what is needed by crew is such that he can tailor an entire visit for overseas guests. In the past few months he has worked with chefs to arrange gourmet food delivery, arranged hanger space for private jets at Nelson airport and even planned wine tours and accommodation for the guests. John admits they have been busier than they thought, thanks in part to a positive response they have received from agencies in Auckland who are now sending clients to Nelson and Marlborough. “This year there are as many superyachts in New Zealand as there were during the America’s Cup in 2003, and next year we know there is going to be more.” John and Haden refused to say if anyone famous had visited Nelson this summer, as privacy is a cornerstone to their success, but John did manage to tease. “They may not be household names but if you read the

Weekly says: It’s important to keep our heritage Here at Waimea Weekly we encourage progress and continued growth. Our region is at an exciting point in its life and it is important that development keeps up with demand from an ever-increasing population. However, while keeping one eye on the future it is also important to keep our feet firmly planted and know who we are and where we come from. Our heritage and history is as important as our future. So when a 100 year-old oak tree, that has become an iconic part of our landscape, is cut down we need to ask questions. It is the Weekly’s belief that we

are sometimes too quick to lose our history because of a comparatively small inconvenience. The Holy Trinity Church says it debated whether to cut the tree down or not for two years and has offered all sorts of reasons for its demise, including needing the space for a new building, that it was unsafe anyway and that it would even improve the view. This has all been in an attempt, in our opinion, to “snow” parishioners and the wider public. We tried to contact the church five times over five days before last week’s article was printed. We called so they could provide com-

ments for its parishioners and the wider public, through the newspaper. But they were not returned, despite making clear why we were calling. While a tree is only a tree, it is important that we in 50 years will still recognise our town, while continuing to strive for greater services to its people. For example, well done to the Grace Church for building around its ancient trees and preserving our iconic and much-loved heritage when it decided to build. It’s a shame your lead wasn’t followed by other churches. Editor.

Nelson’s superyacht industry set to boom FROM PAGE 2 John. “The superyacht industry is pretty small and often it’s the crew that make decisions about where they are going and they talk with each other. They know Haden, or know of him, and when he says ‘why don’t you come down here’ they trust him. And they haven’t been let down, every single superyacht we’ve had here loved it.” The majority of the superyachts are owned by wealthy Americans, Europeans and Australians. Harbour master Dave Duncan says the arrival of multiple superyachts to Nelson is exciting for the region. “This is something new and something that will be of massive benefit to Nelson financially so we are working hard to make that easier for them.” On top of the superyachts, another five adventure yachts have come to Nelson because of marketing by John, Haden and Dave.

“Not all of them used us but they all spend time in Nelson, bought groceries, bought fuel and used local businesses,” says John. They say the season will start earlier this year with the Rugby World Cup in September. John says support from the region has been great. “We’ve had a great working relationship with the port and the airport. We are working with local businesses in hospitality, painters, upholsters, rental car places and a lot of other businesses that will benefit from this new industry,” says John. But Haden says it is not just the rich yacht owners that spend up large. Crew, at sea for months at a time, often have a week off once the guests leave, meaning they also want to explore the region and they don’t mind spending. “You can’t spend your money at sea so when they land somewhere like Nelson, they go pretty hard.”

An empty space proved inspirational for local businesswoman Lydia Heyward. A vacant, and currently available, retail area below Lydia’s real estate company on Queen St Richmond is now home to her husband’s 1959 Plymouth Sports Fury. Lydia says this has proved to be a good advertising opportunity for her husband’s business, Heyward Rod’s and Restorations. The business restores classic cars such as the Sports Fury. The car was found in a disused car yard in America and was imported to New Zealand and re-

stored in Nelson. “It’s such a nice colour and it fits in nicely and this is all a bit of fun,” says Lydia. Last week the car was backed up to the window of Heyward Realty by using Phill Nicholls’ Auto hydro deck and it was then lowered into the shop. “He just backed the truck up to the window, slid the deck through and then the car could just drive off it.” Lydia says she and her staff have already fielded a lot of comments about the car - most wondering how the car found itself to be inside.

Emergency services remain reasonably quiet over weekend The past week has been relatively quiet for the region’s rural fire forces. Sunday morning saw the Richmond brigade attend a vegetation fire after receiving a call from local police. Chief fire officer Ralph Lonsdale says a cabbage tree was on fire by Raeward Fresh at around 5.20am and was quickly extinguished by the crew. “It’s very interesting because there are not many people about at that time.” Another vegetation fire on Cropp Pl in Richmond on Monday night saw the police involved. A call was received at 6.30pm and had Appleby, Brightwater and Richmond attend. It was discovered someone had lit a camp fire in the forest without a permit. Brightwater Rural Fire Force controller Mark Donaldson says everyone should have a permit when lighting fires in rural areas. “This Richmond fire chief guy was escorted out of Ralph Lonsdale. the forest and was dealt with by police.” The Wakefield Rural Fire Force attended a truck fire on Monday morning. “The truck driver had extinguished it by the time we got there though,” says deputy chief fire officer Simon Ladley. Meanwhile, police made several arrests last weekend. On Saturday, April 2, a 37 year-old Richmond woman was arrested for possessing an offensive weapon in a domestic incident and a Richmond man was arrested for breach of his bail conditions.

Free internet at library looks set to continue Free internet at your local library is set to continue after the Tasman District Council extended the agreement with its provider. The partnership agreement between the TDC and the Aotearoa Peoples Network Kaharoa (ANPK), the central government authority that provides free broadband internet access in libraries, has recently been extended. The partnership provides access to computers, training and broadband internet access in public libraries in return for a small contribution by the council. In confirming the decision Tasman mayor Richard Kempthorne says the arrangement has delivered a number of social and financial benefits to the communities that host public libraries. “It has, however, been the subject of public comment in the past few months particularly about its effect on the competitiveness of local internet cafes.” To take ac-

count of the benefits to the whole community the partnership provides a number of conditions that must be met, the most significant being that there will be no obstruction to free access for anyone. “If the council chose not to continue with this arrangement the council would have to fund what has become an expected feature of Tasman libraries to the tune of $300,000 annually, in addition to the ongoing maintenance and renewal costs of the hardware” says Richard. In supporting the renewal of this partnership the council has taken account of the increased expectations of the community regarding access to broadband. They have also looked at the positive effects the facility has provided in the form of increased overall library patronage, the ongoing costs that would become the council’s and ratepayers’ responsibility, and the likelihood of further provision of broadband access by public and private providers.

Association congratulates members on years of service The A & P Association and the show it holds every year has been a part of the Tasman district for 118 years. Two of its committee members haven’t been around that long, but between them have put in over 50 years worth of service for the association. Stuart Bryant and Graeme Taylor were last week presented with life memberships for the time and effort they have given the local group. Stuart has been coming to A & P shows for 50 years and has been a committee member for 21 of those years, continuing on the tradition laid out by

his father, Barry Bryant, who was also involved in the association. Both Stuart and Graeme have been president a number of times over the years. Graeme has been involved since the late 1970s and was one of the youngest presidents at the time. Both men say being awarded a life membership has been one of the highlights of their time with the A & P Association. This year’s show is taking place on November 19 and 20.

Podiatrist aims to fix town’s fickle feet

It’s the people aspect that has kept local podiatrist Malcolm Swindon coming back for more. Malcolm is currently basing himself out of the Richmond Recreational Centre on Cambridge St. After living between the UK and Christchurch for a number of years Malcolm has finally made Nelson his home. Malcolm says unlike a dentist, being a podiatrist makes it easier to talk to patients. “While they’re having their feet done they can’t do much else so we’ll sit and have a conversation.” Malcolm deals with a lot of sports injuries, in particular running problems. Runners are a different breed of athlete all together according to Malcolm. “With runners you find that it’s more of a mental need to run because if you’ve got the drive to do the sport then that’s more important to them than the feet, so I’m constantly treating the feet to keep them going.” After spending 30 years as a podiatrist Malcolm says he

has seen a large variety of feet. “I treat a lot of verrucas and one of the worst cases I’ve seen was a guy had not just one or two but all over his feet, about 70 percent of his feet were totally covered with one massive verruca.

“He wanted them burnt out, he desperately wanted them out so he was resorting to desperate measures. I used homeopathy and that cleared him up in two weeks, that’s the worst case of verrucas I’ve ever seen and that was

quite a spectacular cure.” Malcolm says it’s just as important to visit a podiatrist as it is visiting the dentist or the doctor because prevention is better than treatment and paying a visit regularly is also a good idea.

The Arthur Wakefield Restaurant Richmond historian Peter Kearns delves into yet another slice of local history. This Richmond complex developed initially from an old derelict house that had caught fire and at the time in about 1980 the local fire brigade wondered whether it was worth saving. Fortunately for Tony and Marion Smith it was rescued and they plied their energies in to converting the house built by the Wilkes family around 1894 in to a very attractive colonial style restaurant. At the time Tony and Marion had made a decision to leave Auckland and set up a restaurant in either Kaitaia or Nelson. Following much journeying around and appropriate research Nelson was found to have minimal eating houses other than those connected to a hotel and so they saw this as an obvious market potential. Tony, originally from the West Coast, spent his early working years training as a builder and having been involved in designing and building several restaurants he thought it was time to try his hand at making something he did with flair. After some haggle over planning with

ORIGINAL: The original house.

the local authority the direction he would take was Old World charm style and achieve this he did. The restaurant soon became very popular, but one would wonder how it was ever possible, the house was literally internally gutted. The house had been built as a standard working class family home, there was nothing fancy about it and over the years some of the rooms had been altered. Original double hung windows at the front were retained and added were two kauri jams on either side to form the bay windows. Throughout the project the Smith’s concentrated on using materials and furnishings from Nelson and the West Coast. Some materials were sourced from the old Nelson post office, as were the kauri front doors and heart rimu stair rails that adorn the bar. The solid kauri bar top came from this source also. Fortunately the house was structurally sound with brick piles that made the work much easier. From the West Coast and Nelson two ornate fire places were installed and which in the winter months made the building very cosy for diners. Considerable efforts from numerous West Coast contacts enabled Tony to wood panel the main dining room and although cedar it proved to be done very cheaply in that the wood was sourced from a firm about to go bankrupt. There were fancy timber scrolls supporting the picture rails and these came from the Kosy Corner tea shop in Tahuna, subsequently replaced by the Kentucky Fried complex. An old Motueka insurance building was where the slates used in the front entrance porch were sourced. The old wooden stools dotted around the veranda came from Greymouth. For the shingles that clad the exterior Tony used white pine which were milled in Ahaura (West Coast). Tony’s father adopted an old fashioned method

of soaking the shingles in a special solution and splitting them by hand. In keeping with the house’s new found character a picket fence was added. The Smith’s decided to name the restaurant after Arthur Wakefield because he had been such an integral part of the area’s history. This was how the Arthur Wakefield first presented itself to the public at large; it was sold to Ross Williams and Fred

BACK THEN: The Arthur Wakefield Motor Inn in 1990. Gear in 1985 who in turn added a twenty unit two storey motel complex. Mr and Mrs Murray Pope later purchased it from the latter and to this day there have been several ownership changes. Tony indeed was an entrepreneur and later set up Flinders on Hardy restaurant which later became the present Lone Star, and earlier also had quite an involvement in developing Robinson’s range of juices in Stoke. It was with real sadness when Tony passed away about five years ago and so then was lost this man that a had a ”flair” for business opportunities.

Rave raiser to get teens to Hillary Challenge Two young Garin College students have had a taste of concert management – and they like it. Joel MacManus, 16, and Nick Allison, 17, are fundraising so they can attend the Hillary Challenge, the top secondary school adventure race in Australasia, next month. Costs are quite high so the boys have had to come up with an inventive way to raise the money, and so the Rave Wave Rock Fest was born. The event is being held in conjunction with the ASB Aquatic Centre in Richmond this Friday and is for eight to 14 year-olds. “It’s going to be one of the biggest wave rave’s in a long time; we’re aiming to break the record,” says Nick.

Those planning on attending can expect a wide variety of bands including Parachill, which has the Rock Quest best instrumentalist Clark Hinton in it. Georgia Knott, who is in Peasants of Eden, will be performing, along with Keiran O’Connor from Waimea Intermediate School. “It’s going to be a big pool party basically, it’ll be a really big event for kids,” says Joel. A portion of the ticket sales will be helping Joel and Nick on their way to the Hillary Challenge. The Rave Wave Rock Fest kicks off this Friday from 7pm to 9pm with presale tickets at $7.50 and available from the pool or from some school offices, or $10 at the door. A limited number of tickets are available.

MOVING: NZCU South staff members Jess McLean, Debbie Atkinson and Angela Cheruseo get ready to push manager Jill Jenkins up to their new premises. NZCU South will be moving next month from 250 Queen St to 212 Queen St. Jill says this is because they have outgrown the current building. Staff are looking forward to moving into a bigger and brighter building. “Everyone’s looking forward to it, we’ll have much more space,” says Jill. The same friendly staff will be able to help you at the new office from May 9, they’ll just be up the road a few metres. Photo: Teresa Hattan.

Woman delighted to win BBQ thanks to Westmeat

If you get invited to Erica Lynch’s place for a BBQ soon, you’ll know why. The lucky Redwood Valley resident was the winner of a brand new barbeque thanks to local butchers Westmeat last week. Erica says she was delighted and very surprised when she got the call from Westmeats to say she had won her new toy. “I love Westmeat, with their cheap prices and their good product, so when I got the call, just hours after being in the store and entering, to say I had won I was very surprised.” Erica had purchased a pack of ice creams to get herself in the draw. Retail manager Lynley Tainui says Westmeat love giving away things like BBQs and Erica was able to enter the draw after purchasing a product from their new line of Emma Jane, which make frozen desserts and pies. Erica says she isn’t normally a lucky LUCKY WINNER: Redwood Valley resident Erica Lynch, left, was the person and is looking forward to lucky winner of a BBQ last week thanks to a Westmeat promotion.

Just a thought I enjoy a nice fresh hot cross bun, although sometimes the pleasure of biting onto that tempting bun brings disappointment when they just don’t taste as good as they look or as they should. Last week both my wife and I brought home a packet of hot cross buns as a treat, both knowing that each other enjoy hot cross buns, but not knowing the other had the same plan. Before long the discussion came up which bakery made the best hot cross buns, which bakery still put in all that tasty fruit and spices. No longer just a treat at Easter, now hot cross buns seem to be baked year round; even chocolate flavoured ones can be found. It is said that hot cross buns date back to 1733, and are eaten on Good Friday as an Easter tradition that is especially associated with Britain, although it has spread elsewhere. In the nineteenth century they were sold by street vendors who were so commonplace that they inspired a song which has now become a children's nursery

Dance crew reach finals at nationals Richmond dance crew Origin made the finals at the SDNZ national championships over the weekend. There were 17 varsity teams competing in the preliminaries on Friday night and from there 10 team went through to the Saturday night finals round. Origin are the only South Island team to have made finals in the five years the competition has been running according to the team’s coach Gemma Laing. Origin danced in

the Saturday night finals to a sold out crowd at the Bruce Mason Centre in Takapuna, Auckland and the feedback from the judges about the performance was that it was energetic, powerful and Origin are a very strong team. “In the opening ceremony it was awesome to see Origin dancer Ashleigh Compton carry the plaque for Origin and also representing the South Island,” says Gemma.

NEW Show Home

Official Opening

1.00 - 4.00pm Sunday 17 April 8 Daelyn Ave, Richmond

Locals put body and soul into building your perfect home The Fowler Homes show home is all completed and looking great, they are opening its doors to the public this Sunday. Lisa and Andrew Stevenson have been running Fowler Homes for eight years and say they live and breathe the company. The husband and wife team say they can design and build a home for real living. It’s the personal touch that Lisa and Andrew bring to the whole building process that adds to the uniqueness of their business. “What we bring to the market, is that we are owned and run by Lisa and myself and it has been from the very beginning, it has always been a husband and wife team,” says Andrew. “People are still really passionate and focused on that personal touch.” Andrew has been a builder all his life and he built the show home on Daelyn Ave himself. “I came out of the office and physically built the show home. We did that for a number of reasons and one is so that when we’re actually

here selling it I can say I actually built it, I’m a builder not just a salesman.” The couple are thrilled they are able to provide this great point of difference to their clients. “You only deal with us, that’s what a lot of people who have built with us say, that it’s so good because they’re not ringing an office and getting put on to this person or that person, we’re the one stop shop. We’re accountable,” says Lisa. “We have built this with family in mind, we designed the home as we would live. With three children ourselves we concentrated on that, our space, their space, and with our girls wanting to move in, I would say the design matched the brief, our brief ” says Lisa. The whole process has been a lot of fun for the couple, who say that building a home doesn’t need to be stressful. “That’s the thing everyone enjoys when they’ve built with us. People going into it say it’s stressful but we say there is no reason for it to be. We deal with the stress and you enjoy it.”

ALL IN: Lisa and Andrew Stevenson of Fowler Homes live and breathe their business and have been involved in the area for the past eight years. The couple are excited about the official opening of the show home on Daelyn Ave on April 17. Lisa and Andrew say they get a lot of repeat business and are always available if a client has a question.

The couple have attended weddings, birthdays and other celebrations for people they have built homes for. Andrew says building a home from scratch is a big thing in someone’s life. “It’s big financially and it’s a commitment we take very seriously.” All of the Fowler Homes sub contractors and suppliers are fantastic according to Lisa and Andrew. “They’ve been with us for the eight years as well. With most of the people advertising within this feature we’re loyal to them and they’re very loyal to us and they see our clients right. They follow our way and are always available for us and our clients. Between us and our contractors we really do offer a full service, from helping our clients find the right section through to full interior design. I help 90% of our clients with interior design, I have even helped on

Lisa is more than happy to visit clients current homes to see how they live and to view their furnishings to make sure all their favourite pieces can have pride of place in their new home. The builders have also been with Fowler Homes for eight years. “You get quality because we know them and we have a good relationship with them, one of our longest standing builders helped Andrew build the show home.” Lisa says she and Andrew are starting to see clients come back for a second home. “We get lots of repeat business and referrals.” Fowler Homes is a national brand and is respected throughout the country. “People in Nelson ask ‘who are they and what are they?’ We’re not a franchise; we’re a joint venture so we run this. We pass on our buying power through the national brand to our clients,” says Lisa. Both Lisa and Andrew love what they do. “We’re seriously passionate about it, it’s our life really,” says Andrew. “Our girls often say ‘don’t you talk about anything else?’ We have our own purpose and our own jobs so often we do get home and have to collate what we’ve both done during Lisa on their the day with regards to certain

So there is no need for organised staff meetings in the Stevenson household, as this can easily be done over the breakfast table. “We tried it [organised meetings] but it was

weird,” says Lisa. The couple hope their clients see that they are very passionate about what they do. “I think that’s why we get a lot of people for that simple reason that they know they’re going to deal with Lisa and myself,” says Andrew.

Talking square metre rate is a thing of the past, we talk about how we can give our clients what they want within their budget, we can help them make the correct choices so there will be no blow outs.” Going over budget is the thing that is most concerning for those building a house. “With us you don’t do it unless you want to do it,” says Andrew.

Playdough Recipe

This is the plunket recipe for playdough. It lasts a long time if stored in an airtight container. Make sure you watch very young ones playing with this, as you don’t want them to eat it due to the high salt content. Prep time: 10 minutes Ingredients: 2 1/2 cups white flour 1/2 cup salt 2 tablespoons cream tartar 2 cups boiling water 2 tablespoons oil Couple drops of food colouring Directions: Mix flour, with salt and cream tartar in a bowl. Add boiling water and oil plus a couple drops of food colouring. Mix quickly then knead on a floured board until firm. Add extra flour if sticky. Store in an airtight container. Playdough ideas The Rose 1. Roll out a thin, long snake and press it flat. Loosely roll it up like a rug from one end to the other. Spread and press each layer out a bit. 2.

School Holiday Fun! Fun activities for these school holidays

Find out how to make a bird bath using a terra cotta clay pot, saucer, and a few other supplies. Materials Needed: • Terra Cotta Clay Pot or Pots • Terra Cotta Clay Saucer or Saucers • Paint or Rub-ons • Strong Glue • Clear Acrylic Spray

‘Tubular Belle’ Ann Skelly, Wellington

Kids for Free!* Present this voucher to get 3 kids (aged 5-14yrs) free with one full price paying adult ($22) Valid 16th Apr - 1st May 2011 WearableArt™ • Classic Cars • Café • Art Gallery Open everyday 10am-5pm Cadillac Way off Quarantine Rd, Nelson 03 547 4573 • www.wowcars.co.nz


Instructions: These are so simple to make, and the birds just love them! Start out by wiping down your terra cotta pot and saucer with a damp cloth and let dry completely. Your clay pot, flipped upside down will serve as the base of your birdbath. You can use one clay pot, or use several stacked together to make it taller. The saucer will be used on top of the birdbath to hold the water. The decorating ideas are endless. You can find a neat stencil and paint it, or try sponge painting, or even use simple rub-on decals available at pretty much any craft store. Decorate to your heart’s content! The only real trick is to seal your bird bath well after you decorate it. Use several coats of clear acrylic sealer spray. Also, make sure you store your bird bath inside during cold weather months.

This Week

Seventh heaven for Richmond Athletic Phillip Rollo Another rout, another win. A second half floury saw Richmond Athletic smash Nelson Suburbs first XI 7-0 at Saxton Field on Saturday. Richmond were expecting a bigger challenge against Suburbs' development side, after opening the season with a 11-0 drubbing of FC Nelson Metro. And they got exactly that in the opening 25 minutes, with Suburbs getting the better of the opportunities. Some goal mouth scramble saving two shots off the line early on, but two goals before the break broke the deadlock and from then on it was smooth sailing for Richmond. Sam Mason-Smith, Wesley Olea and Ben Wright made their chances count while Jordan Yong was at his weaving best and was the architect in the majority of their attacking plays. Richmond was given plenty of time on the ball and ran riot through the midfield, while a steady back four held the side together.

Summer tournament

Introducing new sports to the area’s young people was the task at hand, and participants seemed to lap up the day out of the classroom. Last week’s intermediate school’s summer tournament went well for Waimea Intermediate, with the Diamonds gaining first place equal with the Waimea Intermediate Cobras in t-ball. A wide range of sports were played by children from six different schools from around the area, including golf, softball, t-ball, ripper rugby, touch, lawn bowls, mountain biking, orienteering, volleyball, tennis, indoor cricket and croquet.

Captain Joe Green says the unheralded duo of former Nelson Suburbs center-back Matt Shaw and Daryl Fenemor have impressed in the early rounds while their fellow strikers shine in the limelight. “I think Matt should just get better and better. They've done brilliantly,” says Joe. Waimea College student Fox Slotemaker was the standout for the home side, but they lacked the creative edge and mongrel in the middle of the park that they showed in the pre-season tournament. Richmond will host last year's runners up Marlborough Mariners this weekend at Jubilee Park. Lively winger Davi Goncalves Maciel is expected to be fit to face his former club after missing Saturday's clash with an ankle injury. The game kicks off at 3pm. Richmond have drawn Marlborough away in the opening round of the Chatham Cup which will be played on May 14 and 15.

Sports In BrIef MOTORSPORT: Wakefield’s Ben Hunt competed in his first round of the Brian Green Property Group Rally New Zealand Rally Championship over the weekend, taking part in the Drive South Rally of Otago. Ben placed 15th overall and came away with maximum points towards the championship. SPORTS EXCHANGE: Today Garin College are holding their annual sports exchange with Golden Bay High School. Senior boys and senior girls football and senior A netball will be played at the school this afternoon. A rugby game is also being played in Buller. Teachers expect the games to be a good pre season hitout for both schools.

SECOND PLACE: Waimea College students, from left, Marcelle Hecker, Monique Shulz, Ben Murton and Harrison Carver were part of the school’s sailing team to compete in the South Island Secondary Schools Team Sailing Championships in Picton late last month.

FOOTBALL: Waimea Intermediate student Callan Elliot, 11, is one of four Nelson intermediate-aged children selected for a national training centre later this month. Callan is part of a 20-strong South Island selection that have been earmarked for the 2015 FIFA under-17 World Cup in Chile. Standouts from the training centre will join up with the cream of the crop from Auckland and Wellington training squads.

Netball 2011 Netball – Give it a go

Teams have been selected and players are preparing to hit the courts for the 2011 netball season. Over 200 teams compete at the Nelson Netball Centre both on the outdoor courts at Saxton Fields Sports Complex and also indoors in the Saxton Stadium. The 2011 winter season is set to leap into action this weekend with the annual Geraldine Hodgson preseason club tournament, providing teams with the opportunity to get back on the courts for competitive play prior to the beginning of the 2011 competition. Opening night for the Premier grade will be Thursday 5 May from 6pm. Games between the top teams in our region will be played in the Saxton Stadium every Thursday providing you with the perfect opportunity to watch Nelson’s top netballers battle it out. Saturday netball kicks off on May 7 for all senior,

collegiate and junior teams and continues through to the second weekend of September. Future Ferns Netball is aimed at players aged 8 to 10 years and encourages participation with emphasis on fun safety and development appropriate to the age and ability of the players. Year 6 Future Fern teams will start playing on Saturday May 14. Year 4 and 5 Future Fern teams start after school on Wednesday May 18. Encouraging our youngsters to experience netball is something that Nelson Netball does well with the Future Fern and Fun Fern programmes. Fun Ferns is an open programme offering boys and girls aged 4 to 8 years the opportunity to be involved in netball based skills sessions and fun games that are appropriate to their age levels. Fun Ferns will start on Tuesday May 31 and costs just $3 per session.

Netball players from Senior grades right down to Future and Fun Ferns enjoy netball every week at the Saxton Fields Sports Complex. Trish Lowe has held the position of Development Manager for Nelson Netball Centre for the past nine years and over that time she has assisted, mentored and inspired countless of our youngsters and their coaches. One group of youngsters who have in turn inspired Trish are her ‘babies’, the Future Fern referees. Trish encourages some of our younger netball players to take up umpiring positions and provides them with support and training with a few of them still being active in umpiring games at a higher

level. “Having been in the position for a number of years, I get to see most of those little players who started in Future Ferns progress through the grades and some of them are now competing at Premier level which is awesome,” says Trish. Trish is available to help with training sessions at all levels, providing assistance with skills training and support for coaches. If you are currently coaching a team and would like a bit of assistance, don’t hesitate to call her at the Nelson Netball Centre.

Netball 2011 For those with a slightly less competitive nature who just love to play netball, many mixed social teams also participate in the Thursday night league and Wednesday morning netball. Like all organisations, Nelson Netball has a huge number of people and groups who volunteer behind the scenes to make every season a great one. The groups include the Nelson Netball Coaches Club, which aims to provide all coaches at the centre with development opportunities and running workshops for coaches. If you are interested in becoming involved in coaching, contact Trish. The Bench Officials group provides pathways for those who show interest in becoming a Bench Official. This involves score keeping, time keeping and statistics at local Premier level up to National and International level. The Nelson Netball Umpires Committee actively promotes and develops umpires and anyone interested in umpiring can contact them through Nelson Netball. Players and spectators will be sure to notice the big upgrades that have taken place at the Netball Centre ready for the 2011 season. A massive upgrade of the courts

has taken place and it’s looking pretty awesome with new drainage, resurfaced courts all painted up and ready to go, surrounded by smart new fencing. Last year was the first opportunity for Nelson Netball to utilise the magnificent facilities of the Saxton Stadium, allowing for regular games to be played indoors regardless of the weather outside. Having Saxton Stadium available has proved beneficial to netball fans in our region, allowing us to recently host the Lois Muir Challenge. This tournament, originally planned to be held in Christchurch, brought top quality netballers from across the country to Nelson and the Stadium proved to be a perfect venue. For any information about local netball, visit www.nelsonnetball. co.nz or contact the Nelson Netball Centre on 547 4450 or email Leanne Russ, Administration Manager at admin@nelsonnetball.co.nz A Nelson Netball Intermediate Camp will be held on 26 to 28 April for all Yr 7 and 8 netballers.

Waimea Old Boys 2011


WOB teams have first round cup firmly in their sights Teresa Hattan

The Waimea Old Boys senior A and B squads have gotten off to a stellar start, securing another two wins over the weekend despite travelling over the Moutere’s to get them. The Super Liquor Waimea Old Boys Bs had an ugly win over Huia at Sports Park Motueka over the weekend, but the score line wouldn’t tell you that, with WOB coming away with a 29-7 win. Bs coach Nick Marquet says his boys blew quite a few extra tries throughout the game and this probably came down to handling errors. “Huia are a reasonable team so we were happy enough to get the win.” There will be a couple of things the red and white will be working on this week, especially the basic stuff. “We don’t want to be getting ahead of ourselves because we have the pressure to score early but we’ll make the most of every opportunity,” says Nick. A converted try on full time sealed the deal for the travelling team, who now have a home game at Jubilee Park against Marist this weekend from 1.15pm. The Bs met Marist in the final last year

so this hit up could be quite the grudge match. “We got beat last year so a few of the guys will be using that as motivation but we won’t be looking too much into it.” The boys are looking to win the first round cup and the game this Saturday could be a bit of a decider, so get your red and white on and head to Jubilee Park to support your local rugby side in their attempts to win their first title of the season. The Stables Tavern Waimea Old Boys As came closer to being on the other side of the table this week, just holding off Huia 22-17. Coach Mark Milne says the weekend’s game was a big improvement on the previous week. “We stuck to our plan but some of it we didn’t quite execute, the error rate was a bit high.” Despite this, Mark says he and the other coaches were generally happy with the team’s performance and they were very happy to get the points. “It was great to score four tries but Huia kept coming at us,” says Mark. The team have plenty lots of things to work on this week at training according to Mark. “We missed too many tackles so we’ll be

THROUGH THE GAP: Stables Tavern Waimea Old Boys A winger Taiki Koyanagi looks to dodge the hands of a Huia player. working on defence. We’ll also be making a bit of emphasis on the break down and trying to eliminate the handling errors.” Mark says it was great to see a few of the guys playing their first game for Waimea Old Boys senior A and a couple were even trying out new positions. “We’re still in the mode of experimenting.” Reasonable performances came from Trael Joass at second five where he had his first start and Todd Bavin at number seven also played well according to Mark. Acquiring two Japanese players has also paid off for Waimea Old Boys this year, TWO ON ONE: Super Liquor Waimea Old Boys Bs player Michael Bates with the with number eight Masa Toyota and Taiki Koyanagi on the wing giving the squad ball and Ben Jefferies in support against Huia on Saturday.

plenty of pace. The As also have Marist this weekend at Jubilee Park and Mark says the assignment will be very tough. “They’re playing quite well from what I hear and their forwards are very strong but it’ll be nice to be back home.” The As have used the first round of competition as an experimental phase and will be hoping this pays off in rounds one and two. The squad have a few general injuries and will hopefully have one or two guys returning this week. The Stables Tavern Waimea Old Boys senior A kick off against Marist at Jubilee Park

League team needs to bolster numbers Ever thought about playing league? Well here’s your chance. The new Syn Media Wanderers Wolves rugby league team are on the look-out for players to add depth to their squad. They are also on the look out for supporters. Manager and trainer Stu Anderson says it’s great that rugby league in Nelson and Tasman has grown over the past couple of years. There are now seven teams in this year’s premier competition, more than last year and more than premier rugby. Stu says this season there will be plenty of opportunity for league

players to go on to higher honours. Wolves players would also have the opportunity to trial for the Tasman Titans. The Wolves train twice a week, on Monday’s and Wednesday’s from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Stu and the rest of the Wolves believe rugby league is an awesome game to play. “There’s plenty of room in league for the big guy and the little guy, there is a position in it for everyone,” says Stu. If interested in playing league this year get in touch with Stu on 5422137 or email stu@synmedia.biz.

Any person may make a submission on the applications in accordance with Section 96 of the Resource Management Act 1991. Submission forms are available from Council offices and on Council’s website. Please note that the following is an abridged advisory notice only.

Tasman District Council’s Draft Annual Plan 2011/2012 is now available for public consultation. The Draft Annual Plan covers the year from 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2012. The purpose of the Draft Annual Plan is to get feedback on whether you think Council is planning to provide the right services and activities within the Tasman District. Your views will help guide Council’s decision-making, prior to the final Annual Plan being adopted in June 2011. Council is also proposing an amendment to the Treasury Management Policy in the Ten Year Plan 2009-2019, which is contained in the Draft Annual Plan document. The Amendment will enable Council to participate as a “Principal Shareholding Local Authority” in the New Zealand Local Government Funding Agency Limited. Being party to this new agency should help reduce Council’s cost of borrowing on loans. Council approved the Draft Annual Plan and Amendment for public consultation at its meeting on 10 March 2011. The proposals are contained in two documents: •

A Summary, which was sent to all households in the Tasman District through a special edition of Newsline on 18 March 2011.

Council has also produced the “17 Settlements” document as supplementary information to the Draft Annual Plan and Amendment. The 17 Settlements document outlines what new projects and activities are being provided by ward and settlement within the District. The above documents are available for viewing on Council’s website at www.tasman.govt.nz and during normal office hours at the following Tasman District Council offices: •

Proposed Rule Changes for Club Waimea There is a need to review and define Club Waimea’s Constitution and Rules. There is a need to arrange the Club’s affairs in a more practical order. There is a need to have a Board that can be focused on controlling the Club finances, overseeing general management and leading any future direction. To achieve this is proposed that the members elect an Executive Committee who will assist the Board, who will control membership, member welfare, Sports and other Sections, supervise operation of the Courtesy Coach, oversee all of the Club’s assets and convene General Meetings. The new document which covers all of the proposed changes can be picked up from the Club office upon presentation of your membership card. These changes are designed to take your Club into the future and your input is welcome. Please obtain a copy, study it and have your say.

A Special General Meeting

for members to debate and hopefully adopt these measures will be held at

Club Waimea on Tuesday, 19 April at 7.00pm. If passed, nominations will be called for the first Executive Committee, to be elected at the Clubs AGM on 29 May.
