Two new faces in Richmond ward

(from front page) When asked what inspired him to stand for Tasman council election Kit told Waimea Weekly, “It was the issues of rates and affordability. With the downturn in the economy people are finding it tougher than I think council appreciates; they need a bit of a break.” Kit was naturally delighted with his election and says “it came on the back of a lot of hard work. I knocked on the doors of, or at least spoke to, 1600 households in the ward during my campaign. When you put so much effort in it is very pleasing and a relief to get the result,” he says. Kit would like to thank all those who supported his successful bid to be a Richmond ward councillor. “Thanks to all of you who took the trouble to vote. It’s all very well to express your support verbally but without taking the time to tick the boxes and post back your forms it counts for nothing.” Incidentally, voter return in Tasman district was 49.8%, being 16,818 forms excluding special votes. Kit concluded, “I’m now a councillor, I enjoyed my day out with a friend trout fishing, my cricket team (Waimea-Toi Toi) won on Saturday and now you tell me Tasman Makos have just beaten Bay of Plenty. It’s been a good weekend.” Meanwhile Richmond ward’s other new councilor Zane Mirfin was thrilled with his next-to-top spot in the poll. The husband of Aimee and father of four Henley School children says, “It wasn’t a single issue which prompted me to throw my hat into the ring. I’ve always been interested and concerned about what goes on

in my community and I want to see informed and balanced decisions made in the running of it. Now with this public support I can be involved and help in that process.” Zane admits as a new boy on the council block, Zane Mirfin “I’m willing to 6th generation Richwatch, listen mond man with a paand learn. It’s a rochial passion bit humbling to be picked ahead of Michael Higgins who I regard as a good person and effective councilor. He in particular was very helpful to me during the campaign and all the candidates in the running were civil and there was none of the mud-slinging among these in Tasman which mars so many elections.” Not only is Zane’s heart in Tasman but also his family heritage dating back to the arrival of the sailing ship Thomas Harrison at Port Nelson in 1842. “I’m a sixth generation Richmond man. The Mirfins are well known in these parts and my dad Stuart was a bank manager here for 30 years.” While this was Zane’s first bid for local body election he and his father were cofounders of the Outdoor Recreation Party which attracted 5% of the party vote in Nelson and West Coast-Tasman in the 2002 general election. “Serving on council will be an exciting challenge. And there isn’t a better district in New Zealand to serve than Tasman,” says Zane.

Queen St. design ‘confrontational’ The present design of Richmond town’s main street is condusive to clutter and confrontational to pedestrians, according to Tasman District Council transportation manger Gary Clark. During the current 10 year plan council is prepared to spend more than $6m on giving our central business district a refreshing facelift. Already a ring-road system has been developed wich encourages motorists not intending to stop in town to use the Gladstone RoadMcGlashen Ave./Talbot St.- Salisbury Road-Oxford St. route, thus freeing the main street of superfluous traffic. “We need to reduce vehicular traffic thoroughfare, create wider footpaths in Queen St. and remove clutter such as shop sandwich boards. And street furniture in Queen St. needs to be upgraded in accordance with Sundial Square and perhaps a water theme introduced; all of which will make the street more pedestrian friendly,” says Gary. Council is actively encouraging the residential and business community to make suggestions for the future look of Queen St. “We’ve had quite a bit of feedback from the public and from a good cross-section of the community. There is a need for us to start moving in what direction we take sooner rather than later,” says Gary.

Police Station in Richmond likely to get 24/7 coverage If Nelson Bays police area commander Inspector Brian McGurk gets his wish the Richmond station will have 24 hours a day, seven days a week coverage by Christmas. “Yes, that’s what I would like to see, which will mean there are always at least two police officers on duty in Richmond; not necessarily always in attendance at the station but working in the area and able to be more proactive than the present roster allows,” says Brian. He says total police staff (144.6) for the Nelson Bays area will remain constant in the meantime with various changes to roles and placements of officers made in accordance with Richmond being recognized as an extension of suburban Nelson city rather than a separate area of police concern. Included among the propos-

Nelson Bays police area commander Inspector Brian McGurk als under consultation and consideration over the next few weeks is redeploying the senior sergeant at Richmond to the role of area staff coordinator based in the Nelson station. “If that occurs there probably wouldn’t be an OC (officer in charge) as such in Richmond,” says Brian.

He adds, “The number of calls police are receiving is ever-increasing and what we need to do is put the resources we’ve got in places and positions to be more responsive and victim-orientated.” While deterrence and response to criminal threat to human life and health is a top priority it is expected the proposed changes to police coverage in the town will stem the disturbing recent increase in vandalism in residential and commercial areas. Brian will be holding meetings in the Tasman region over the next few weeks at which the public are most welcome to express their concerns related to local policing issues. These meetings are at: Richmond Town Hall on Tuesday October 19; Wakefield Fire Station on Tuesday October 26 and; Murchison Recreation Centre on Wednesday November 10, all with a 7pm start.

‘Missing my cat’ story rouses compassion Back in the late 1970s American singer Yvonne Elliman had a number one song entitled ‘If I can’t have you, I don’t want nobody baby.’ It seems that is the feeling of six year old Connor, the subject of our front page story (October 6 issue) concerning his tabby cat which was handed in to SPCA and subsequently re-homed in Wakefield. Waimea Weekly received feedback from sev-

eral pet lovers who sympathised with the boy’s plight but in most cases qualified their comments by saying this was one of the many pitfalls in not having male cats neutered before they start roaming for mates. Thankyou to those three tabby cat owners who offered their pets as a substitute. In the meantime Connor’s mother is considering the options and is touched by your kindness.

Fairytale horses for a fantastic Santa parade When it comes to Gypsy Vanners, Kathy Andrus has the majority to rule our nation’s equestrian empire. With 13 of 25 of these placid, feather footed breed known to exist in the country, her Wairoa Gorge farm (near Brightwater) is not only our Gypsy Vanner capital but also the first place they set their hairy hooves in New Zealand. “I brought the first ones here in 2005 after they were introduced to USA from England in 1996. As the name suggests they were bred by gypsies and used to pull their wagons since a long, long time ago. The breed has since been tuned in accordance with the gypsies’ specific uses for them,” says Kathy who was attracted to them in America because of they appeared to be “a typical, little girl’s fairytale horse.” And appropriately it is a fairytale in which several of her horses will feature in Queen Street soon. The Richmond Pak ‘n’ Save Santa Parade on Saturday, November 27 follows the theme ‘A Fairytale Christmas’ and event manger Lisa Norriss has asked Kathy to make some of her horses available for this exciting occasion.

Top left: Kathy drives her 100 year-old carriage made of solid English oak with hand-cast iron chassis. It was sent to Indonesia to incorporate typical elaborate carvings and was used there to carry British Diplomats before making its way to New Zealand in the 1960s. This unique carriage and the horses are available for wedding and event hire. Top right: Kathy with Appleby “I was asked to prepare some for last year’s Santa Parade but I had so many other bookings I wasn’t able to. Because they have so much hair compared to other breeds a lot of people don’t realize it takes hours and hours to wash and dry and brush them ready for such occasions,” she says. Kathy’s horses, with Mr Beau Jangles

leading the way, have been used to pull carriages and wagons at weddings and other special social occasions and are no strangers to filling in for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer & Co. having pulled Santa around Richmond Park at a previous Henley School Christmas party. Kathy understands her horses, which are naturally so quiet she doesn’t have

to break them in but “merely teaches them how to steer” will be used by the local medieval group and dressed accordingly to carry jousters and the like. With Body in Space theatre company appointed by Richmond Unlimited to organize the event, this years Richmond Pak ‘n’ Save Santa Parade promises to be the best yet.

Letter to the editor

Pomeroy’s general manager Hayden Thompson tastes some of his medalwinning coffees

Coffee roaster wins NZ awards

Nelson coffee roaster, Pomeroy’s, has won two medals at the national coffee awards. The coffee-makers entered three different coffees in the awards and won two silver medals and a bronze. General manager Hayden Thompson says he was stoked to come away with the three awards. “We put in our Guatemalan and our espresso formula two, both have been repackaged for the grocery market and we pulled a silver for both of them, which was great. Then we put our Toxic brand in the organic section and won a bronze for that.” Hayden says Pomeroy’s have entered the awards in the past and have always done pretty well. “We’ve always got something out of it, which is great because we really try to keep that consistency going from year to year.” The awards are getting more and more prestigious as more coffee roasters enter. This year 66 coffee roasters entered with just under 300 coffees over the various categories. As a winner Pomeroy’s get to put the silver sticker on its winners for a year says Hayden. “To be able to have our new brand coffee going into supermarkets with a silver medal is a great kick-start for us.” Hayden estimates it supplies 60 to 70 percent of the cafe and restaurant market in Nelson. “There are more coffee roasters than ever so you have to be on the top of your game and continue to put out a great product or you won’t be doing it for long.”

Sir, I would like to express my absolute shock and amazement at your front page story regarding Gordie the cat being re-homed. I feel you have done our SPCA an extreme injustice by running this story, I’m sure they did everything they possibly could to try and get Gordie back to his owner and they were only doing what they had to do by re-homing Gordie. Having Gordie neutered, vaccinated and chipped is only what any responsible cat owner should have already done. You have portrayed Kharissa, Conner & Xavier as victims when it is quite clear that they are not. The first place they should have checked for Gordie was the SPCA as most pet owners know. Claiming financial hardship for not having Gordie neutered is rubbish, he should have been done when he was a kitten and it doesn’t cost much at all and then he would not have been out roaming ‘as boy cats do’.


Yes it is hard for the children losing a pet but this is not an excuse for you to rubbish and discredit our awesome SPCA, they do a wonderful job and deserve a public apology for this unfairness. Jo Brown Editor: Well done on exalting SPCA - indeed a very honourable organization - but no need to defend them in this instance as there was no attack against them. It was pointed out inspector Craig Crowley confirmed Gordie had been held for twice as long as legally obliged and that he had made two appeals to the new owner on behalf of the former owners. There was no criticism of SPCA, stated or applied. For you to say Kharissa should have done this and done that is perhaps unfair. I’m sure we’ve all been guilty of procrastination at some stage for one reason or other. Some, such as Connor in this case, have to pay for the consequences.

El Gregoe says, “We had huge attendances at all our shows and I was inspired to come here by my magician son Nicholas who performed in the mall last year. He’s now performing successfully in Austrlia and he told me how responsive the children of Richmond are to such acts as the magic and ventrilquism I do. He was right. The SHOWERS local kids are as good an audience as I’ve had SHOWERS anywhere in the country; I’ll definitely be back,” SHOWERS says El Gregoe.

When the news came through from Girl Guiding New Zealand that 13 year-old Brightwater girl Brianna Thompson had been accepted for Peak 2010, she started counting down the days with excited anticipation. Waimea Weekly previewed Brianna’s trip and as promised she has sent us this report of her experience. “Fundraising is difficult when, having recently moved from Wellington to the Waimea district, you don’t know that many people.

Zumba dance fun and fitness for women’s health Richmond bowls pleased you had a go Tomorrow, Thursday October 14, Zumba Tasman invite you to Party in Pink at a community Zumba class as a fundraiser for NZ Breast Cancer Foundation and their Pink October campaign. “We want to get as many people as possible to dress in pink (male and female) and we have many pink prizes donated by generous local retailers,” says Zumba

instructor Caroline Hoar. She is assisted by Tracy Dawson who says, “Tere will be twice the opportunity to have fun, get fit and support the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation (NZBCF).” Caroline points out, “Breast cancer has touched many of our participants in various ways and we want to get as many people as possible to

Zumba in pink to show their support. Zumba Tasman was born from Caroline’s love of dance and being a Les Mills instructor and inspired by a wonderful trip to Brazil. Tracy and Caroline wanted to do something of value in the Tasman community and they know everyone enjoys an hour off to dance and have fun with friends.

“One great thing we have noticed is how many people in the community come to Zumba who have never exercised before and don’t fit with the perceived image of gym bunnies. Also they are very relieved to see that we are not too young or perfect or unapproachable,” says Caroline, adding “Each class burns up to 700 calories or 6 weight watcher points, whatever they are.” So take a friend, dress in pink and go along at 6:15pm to the Hope Domain Hall for Party in Pink Entry is $6 with proceeds going to NZBCF.

Ken Smith of Richmond Bowling Club reports that 10 new faces showed up to the Have a Go at Lawn Bowls player recruitment drive last Sunday. “From those 10 we’ve got two who seem committed to playing competitive bowls at the club while another two are very interested in the social play and aspect of the club. That’s a good result but it’s never too late for anyone to come along and see what goes on. Thanks to all those who turned out,” says Ken. Phone 544 7076 or 544 6462 for more details. A collection of donations on the day raised $200 for the Christchurch earthquake appeal.

Local dealer opens new yard A Nelson car yard has expanded, doubling the size of its yards. Dowell Wholesale Cars on Rutherford St opened its new yard last week and owner Paul Dowell says the expansion has come about because he has been “flat stick.” “Everyone is crying doom and gloom but there has been no recession for me.” Paul says his first yard was predominately set up to sell cars to other dealers but he was selling more and

But this new yard has predominately imports so now we have a great range.” Paul has been in the car business for many years, specialising in selling cars to other dealers.

manager Anton Tonk. “It’s good to have Anton here; it should give me a small amount of free time so I can get back on my bike.” Paul a keen cyclist and former stockcar racer, is famous for giving 100 percent to whatever he does and he is aiming to put that winning formula back into running his two yards.

for the season but in no way is it any less important or exciting than those earlier. Our track commentator Dave Birdling calls these guys “the crazies of speedway”, while others call them the chariots of doom. Call them what you will but you have to feel nothing but admiration for someone who gets on a three wheeled motorcycle with no brakes and goes flat out around a track with only a concrete wall to keep them in the arena. Anything can happen when these guys get together on the track and it probably will. The weather last season at North Island tracks meant that a lot of the Stockcar drivers from that part of the country could not participate in last season’s Stock Shock which in turn meant that our competitor numbers were down. That did not mean that the action was


any less on the track and the meeting on March 11 & 12 this season should see this meeting comes right back to where it should be. This is a chance to once again see some of our country’s top stockcars and their drivers go bumper to bumper to take the spoils of victory. March 26 is the night of our annual King of the Clay meeting while at the next meeting on April 9 we will see the return of the Modifieds at our track. Modifieds were once a big thing here in Nelson and this will be a chance to once again see these winged warriors take to our track with even more venom than ever injected before. Also, that night we will see the local Tasman Thunder Stockcar team take on the Canterbury Crushers in their annual contest for the Martin Dumelow Cup affectionally known as “The Pen-

guin”. Can the Nelson guys grab this trophy back which was lost by the narrowest of margins in Christchurch last season? The last and by no means least meeting of the year will again be the Easter meeting. This will be held in late April (23 & 24). This is a hugely popular meeting for competitors and fans alike. It attracts drivers from all over the country and is always a great show to end the season with and it never ever fails to please. There will also be club championships and other certain trophies throughout the season, so this season make sure you get your backside trackside and enjoy the best entertainment money can buy here in Nelson.

Richmond historian Peter Kearns reflects on an iconic diner in Richmond for many years, the pie cart. Keith and Grace Burtenshaw started a business in a purpose built mobile diner in 1951. The diner was constructed in Timaru by Keith’s brother. This was the first pie cart for Richmond and was in the main positioned in Croucher Street on the road edge alongside the current Star & Garter Hotel. There was a time because of council requirements when it was shifted to Cambridge Street just off the corner where Harcourts real estate offices are

now. All pre-cooking was carried out from an approved stand alone kitchen in behind the Burtenshaw’s home in Church Street Richmond adjacent to Richmond School playing field. Keith became renowned for his specially prepared infra-red grilled steaks for which on numerous occasions groups of people visiting Nelson would make the trip out to enjoy. The business was well supported and the Burtenshaws had good reliable staff in Harry Norgate and Ivan Lewis while For many, a feed at the pie cart on the way home from a long evenboth Grace and Keith would ing at the pub was a highlight of the culinary week also be on the job themselves.

Corrections from past editions - * I made mention of Howard & Gilbert Wilkes being the founders of the W E Wilkes company, this is incorrect the firm was founded by their father. * Mention of the Baptist Church shifting from Queen Street to Croucher Street is not so, this church relocated to Salisbury Road alongside the ASB Aqua Pool. * Then another church the Church of Christ relocated from Lower Queen Street to Croucher Street alongside Maling Pensioner Flats. * On the right hand side of Queen Street assuming the direction of going towards the Gladstone Road intersection lights I made mention of there perhaps a house lived in by Max Hunter this was incorrect. The house I had in mind was occupied by a Mrs Elliot who was renowned for having a “white talking parrot” frequently surprising people with a “hello” as they walked by. Mrs Elliot was the mother-in-law of George Watson known as a bus driver for the Suburban Bus Company. * I also should have mentioned the Transport Company established by the Best brothers operating from where the Suburban bus company took over. Cuthert and Harold best had carried on a transport business established by their father Dan and this business would have continued until the early 1950’s it was best known as Waimea Transport.

There are currently over 90 vehicles registered, ranging from the 1930’s to 2009. These cars will be out and about on the roads over the weekend, but the general public will have two opportunities to get

up close and personal to these cars with the first on Saturday October 23, 11am to 3 pm at Higgins Park (Steam Museum) in Pigeon Valley. Parts of the museum will be operational on Saturday in conjunction to the display time. Entry is a gold coin donation, with proceeds going to prostate cancer. The second opportunity will be on Sunday October 24, at Kaiteriteri from 12pm to 2:30pm. Again entry is gold coin donation, with proceeds to the Jack Inglis Friendship Hospital in Motueka.

Motocross training camp upskills 50 riders Coach Dan Shallcrass says the school holiday camps he runs are the complete A to Z for motocross riders. “We don’t only teach how to ride properly and how to improve by explaining the basics to start, which is where you should begin in any sport, and proper techniques but we teach all aspects of safety, machine care and maintenance and discuss right attitudes which affect enjoyment and performance.” Dan stresses that motocross is a family affair and as with any recreation or activity if the parents get involved with their kids everybody is going to enjoy the fun of the event with the

benefit of social interaction with family and friends. The latest camp at 88 Valley attracted 50 riders over two days and Dan was pleased so many participants were part of family groups. “We instruct at all levels according to individual stages of competence and development. There’s something for the absolute beginner and something for the pro rider at our camps,” says Dan. The next camp will be on October 31 and anyone wanting to register or wanting more information should phone or txt Dan on 027 2776035.

Rugby champions to gather again Recently Waimea Old Boys Rugby Club’s champion team of 1990 enjoyed a re-union to coincide with the visit home of the title trophyhoisting captain Warren Phipps. Another reunion of a winning team from the Richmond based club is planned for Saturday, October 23. On this occasion a special focus will be on well known local rugby personality Carl Thelin. Apart from his involvement with Waimea, Carl was a Nelson rep captain who enjoyed both success and disappointment in Seddon Shield matches when it was an extremely meaningful and fiercely contested competition. Just ask Carl how he felt handing New Zealand’s secondmost famous and next-to-oldest rugby trophy to Peter Fry, Golden Bay-Motueka rugby captain and Riwaka club stalwart back in the 60s. Carl was Nelson Bays rugby coach during 197274, on his own and with help from Alvin Bond and Noel Barton, after taking the reins from Charlie Cowman and All Black Ron Horsley. After the amalgamation trial in 1969 between Nelson and Golden Bay-Motueka was passed, Waimea Old Boys was the first club to win a Nelson Bays senior championship, with Carl as coach and Tony Dixon being captain. The title was won after a titanic struggle against a rep-studded Takaka side which included later All Black Terry Mitchell and was captained by John Allan, now a Richmond resident. Ken Smith who was a member of the winning Waimea team recalls the match which was played at Rugby Park in Motueka. Incidentally the great Wallaby winger David Campese made his debut at Rugby Park, now the impressive Sportspark Motueka thanks to a vision and hard work done by Kelvin Bradley, George Sturgeon and Tasman councillor Barry Dowler. “We won the match 9-3 with Ron Tasker scoring all our points from a try and two dropped goals. Carl put Errol Thelin out on the wing to mark Terry Mitchell and he dropped him ever time he got the ball,” recalls Ken. The reunion of Carl’s champion team, open to all players, management and supporters together with their friends and family starts at 6.30pm at Waimea’s clubrooms. The bar will be open. Anyone with questions or memorabilia which could add to the occasion should phone Ken Smith on 5447516 or 021 2446000.

Waimea Old Boys 1970 side were Nelson Bays Senior Club champions: Back row: Ken Smith, Jim Higgins, Terry Smith, Bruce Smith, Jim Bishop, Mike Lusty, Morrie Brown. Middle Row: Carl Thelin (coach), Keth Edwards, Terry Cook, H. Brown, Les Baynes, M Childs, Bill Thwaites, Errol Thelin, H Pomeroy. Seated: Murray Pash, Terry Hunter, Les Allan, Tony Dixon (captain), Selwyn Tasker, Norm Gill, Reg Tasker. In front: Peter McKinlay, Maru Kainuku, Hean Yee, Gordon Ross, Ron Tasker, Peter Newman.

Alex finds a Penn pal

Melanie Penn of Richmond with Alex Parry Melanie Penn, daughter of Diane and Rod Penn of Swamp Road was married recently in England to Welshman Alex Parry, her partner of seven years. They were married at Lemor Manor in Eardisley which is three hours drive from London. Rod says, “Diane and I, with our youngest daughter Amy, went over for the wedding which was a small affair but it was great. We had the whole place (Lemor Manor) to ourselves for the wedding which was great. “Melanie and Alex have been living in London for eight years and plan on moving to New Zealand to live early in the New Year, much to our delight. “We have a busy year with weddings as our Amy was married here at the start of this year and in March 2011 our third daughter Nikki is coming back from London with her man Mark to be married here in Nelson and stay to live in good ol’ New Zealand.”
