Stepping up to the challenge Emily Beaumont Reporter

Six Richmond firefighters will join hundreds of their counterparts on Saturday, May 19, as they ascend the 1103 steps of Auckland’s iconic Sky Tower to raise money for Leukaemia & Blood Cancer (LBC) New Zealand. Wearing their full kit weighing around 25 kilograms, the firefighters will climb the steps together as a team just after midday. The team’s captain Alex Theobald took part last year and says, while gruelling, it’s a “great challenge”. “I also think the fund-raising is quite addictive, and although it’s really tough doing the actual stairs in all our gear, it’s for such a good cause so it’s really rewarding,” says Alex. The Firefighter Sky Tower Stair Challenge is in its 14th year and consistently raises over one million dollars each year for the LBC charity, which helps the six kiwis diagnosed with a blood cancer every day. The funds raised help the charity support patients and their families while also funding research into finding cures and better treatments. Tahuna’s Tamaki steps have provided the training ground for the team and they’ve practiced ascending with weighted backpacks in preparation for Saturday’s climb up the 51 flights. “It’s definitely going to be pretty tough, but we can do it,” says Alex.

Silvan Forest trail closes for harvest

From May 16 until further notice, the Silvan Forest will be in full closure for harvest. The forest is privately owned, made accessible for recreational use by its generous owners, Rick and Sarah Griffin. The Mountainbike Trails Trust (MTB Trails Trust) started developing a comprehensive trail network in the forest in 2014. The three-and-a-half-year development of the forest has filled a real need in the riding area, when there weren’t many other options. The land owners have been waiting on notification from the contractor to begin harvesting, which will run at least through this year’s winter. The Griffins have committed to a predominantly native tree replanting regime to give the property long term recreational status and access. Part of that planning is linking Silvan to Kingsland

Silvan Forest regulars Ange Edridge and Lorene Wallace at the top of Goliath with Tasman Bay in the background. Photo: Grant Sterling. Forest seamlessly, so that riding opportunities between Silvan and the TDC-owned forest tick all the right boxes for recreational users.

With Silvan seeing 50,000 riders a year through its gates, this closure may be a little inconvenient for some, but chairman of the

MTB Trails Trust, Chris Mildon, says it is very much a ”short-term pain, for long-term gain” type situation.

“Pine harvesting is part of the package we signed up for when developing trail resources in this type of forest, but in this case having a native replant to look forward to really highlights just how much of a commitment the Griffin family are making to the community. “It is an exciting time coming up, with just a small blip while the radiata is removed.” Damage to existing trails will be relatively minor with reinstatement work taking place directly after the harvest crew, and closure time will be spent carrying on with trail development that has had to be put on hold while waiting for the harvest date to come through. Once the forest is open again there will a lot more of the type of trails that have made it so popular in such a short time, already in place and ready to ride.

Concern over home-made bombs

Emily Beaumont

The detonation of home-made pipe bombs has Richmond police concerned. Five pipe bombs have been set off since March 31, all in the vicinity of Bateup Rd, St James Ave and Paton Rd with the first four occurring around 3.30am. The most recent was on Sunday, May 13, at 10.10pm. “They’re making a hell of a racket,” says Richmond community constable Kyle Abbott. “We want people to be vigilant and to be aware and alert this is happening.” Police are requesting the public to report any suspicious activity and for those living in the area to write down any number plates of vehicles that are not normally in the area. Call 111 immediately if an undetonated pipe bomb is discovered, also report any exploded bombs and refrain from re-

Promoting and supporting local businesses Amy Russ The winners for the Richmond Unlimited ‘Passport to Richmond’ promotion have been announced. The promotion was designed to urge shoppers, with all the roadworks going on, to get behind their local retail stores and shop at some they wouldn’t normally frequent. There were several different stamp categories to be collected. Once all the stamps were collected, shoppers then qualified for the draw. Prizes included a seven-day campervan hire complete with $200 of grocery vouchers and a full tank of gas, supplied by Discover NZ and Richmond Mall, a Hero

5 Go Pro with an accessories package from Noel Leeming, a trailbike from Village Cycles, a Balance bike from Avanti, a comprehensive first aid kit from McGlashen Pharmacy, two outdoor beanbags from Smith City, Wet n Forget products and Meryl footware from Taylors. Charlotte Bidlake from Richmond Unlimited says there was a great response from the public, “it was a great opportunity to make Richmond front of mind for people because there was a campaign behind it. We wanted to try and generate a change in buyers’ behaviour to try a different store in Richmond than they nor-

mally would.” Seven names were drawn, and as each person was called up they had the opportunity to choose which prize they wanted. Brigid Kelly, who was the first name drawn, was over the moon to win and chose the seven-day campervan hire. “I am really looking to it, I chose it before talking to my husband, and he’s pretty happy! We thought we would do a trip around the South Island. “It will be exciting to be travelling around and checking out the different towns. I often shop in Richmond, I like to shop in the Mall, they have some great shops and cafes there.”

Zero-tolerance for unlawful hunting With the annual roar season upon us, it is a timely reminder that the New Zealand Police will be keeping an eye out for unlawful hunters in the area. The Nelson/Marlborough police have been responding to reports of spotlighting activity around the province, which is common at this time of year. Constable Matt Elliot, Murchison Area Police, says he responds to a report of unlawful hunting roughly every second week, “bear in mind that not all incidents are reported straightaway, sometimes it will be days before someone contacts us.” He says that with advancements in technology people are getting cunning in their ways. “Back in the day people used white light for spotlighting, but there is movement away from the blatant spotlighting. Now there is night vision, Constable thermal vision, the ability Jamie White to shoot in complete darkness. The same risks exist now as they did back in the day, risk to human life, to property and to stock. People should be aware that they don’t need to have actually pulled a trigger or have killed an animal.” Doug Clifton, owner of Richmond Hunting and Fishing, says, “my outlook is that unlawful hunting and poaching is pretty irresponsible, it is obviously why a lot of farmers and property owners have trust issues. They give the whole hunting scene a bad name. The 1% of irresponsible people ruin it for the 99% of people who hunt as a passion. I am 100% behind the unlawful hunting fines and confiscation laws.” Police continue with their – Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere – approach and anyone caught unlawfully hunting could receive maximum fines of up to $100,000 or two years imprisonment, and loss of hunting gear, including vehicle, firearms, firearms licence and all hunting equipment, and in some cases disqualification from driving. Constable Jamie White, Wakefield Police, would like to remind hunters that unlawful hunting, including trespassing, will not be tolerated and that ignorance is not an excuse. “Police often receive complaints of illegal hunt-

ing in both private forestry areas and other private land. Unlawful hunting places property owners and other lawful forestry users at risk,” he says. “we also want to remind hunters it is illegal to hunt at night (even if you have a permit) in both DOC land and private forestry areas.” To hunt on private land, you need to apply for a permit or ask the land owner for their permission.

Local boys are ready to take on the world Amy Russ Four students from Nelson College Preparatory School will be representing New Zealand in June, in Wisconsin USA, to compete against some of the best problem solvers from all around the world in the International Future Problem Solving Championships. In November 2017 the four local boys competed at the National Future Problem Solving Championships in Auckland. The had to consider the growing number of identity theft cases worldwide. They devised a microchip identity system, that safeguarded individual’s identity and was hard for cyber-criminals to access. With this, they were selected as New Zealand Junior Champions and were invited to represent New Zealand at the Intentional event. These bright young men (aged between 12 and 13) will have the trip of a lifetime. While at the host University (the University of Wisconsin in La Crosse) they will meet creative and engaged young people from a range of cultures, who are hoping to find ways to make our future a little better. The team will also be travelling

The Nelson Prep team have been studying hard to understand how law enforcement and courts of the future could be made better

and where the line between public safety and civil liberties might be drawn. Student Tom Lynch is excited for the trip, “its really cool that I get to go the US. I feel lucky to be a part of it. I am really looking forward to going to NASA because

they have got some really cool things there!” On May 18, the college will be hosting a quiz night and art auction to help fund-raise for the event. Great prizes from local businesses with some amazing pieces

Stirring up memories of the past Amy Russ Getting together with friends and going through old photo albums can bring back many fond recollections and walks down memory lane. Brian McIntyre and Christine Pointon are doing just that, but on a much larger scale. They have created an online forum, called ‘Top of the South Island, New Zealand History’ on Facebook,

where local people can post photos of the past, which gives members a chance to recall stories and memories of around the region. The page was created after a comment was made on a similar page for the West Coast, called ‘West Coast New Zealand History’ (WCH), about how great it would be to have one for the top of the South. Christine Pointon, from Murchison, set up the TOSI group and Nelson’s Brian McI-

ntyre does most of the other admin work, along with two others from WCH. Christine and Brian are also both admin members for WCH. Top of the South Island, New Zealand History has been going for around a month now, and already boasts over 2000 members. A number which is growing rapidly, as people discover what treasures are in the old photos that are being posted. Christine, who works

at the Murchison Museum meticulously archiving their old photos, says, “it is absolutely mindblowing what has been shared in the group. It has blown me away, the quality of the photos that are getting put on there.” With loads of positive comments on the group page, members reconnecting with friends from times past, and people even making family connections that they never even knew existed, it is easy

to see why the group is growing in popularity with an excess of 20 member requests a day. Brian is chuffed with how well it is all going and says, “this page is bringing people and families together that didn’t even know they were related. “It gives people a platform to share their photos and memories, somewhere to find family history and a place to ask questions about the past.”

Rainbow ready to roll

The Rainbow Skifield in full winter action. Inset: General manager James Lazor looks forward to an epic season in his new role. Photos: Supplied. Rainbow Ski Area is scheduled to open on July 7, and plans are afoot to turn it into the “best small ski field in the country”. A quiet revolution has begun at the Nelson Lakes-based snow sports amenity, which has been in operation since the early 1980s. After years of being administered solely by a very-able volunteer committee, the new-look Rainbow Sports Club has a fresh approach, led by a newly-appointed fulltime general manager and new-look operations team.

“Rainbow has been run by a management committee for the last decade and they have done an amazing job. I don’t think people understand how much work and passion that committee has put in to have Rainbow open every season.” “But they have decided to take a step back and go into a governance board environment and employ a general manager,” says Lesley McIntosh, Sport Tasman Manager Community Sport. That person is 58-year-old James

Lazor, a former alpine director for Snow Sports NZ, who joined the Rainbow set-up in mid-February. James immigrated to New Zealand nearly 12 years ago, has also directed ski operations in Ontario, Canada and Vermont, USA. Andrew Smith, acting chairman of the Rainbow Sports Club, says the club has several strategic goals, including becoming the top winter attraction in the Nelson-Marlborough region. “A big part will be to make the

field easily accessible. It’s crucial we do a good job on our road and that we do the best job we possibly can on the snow surfaces, whether natural or man-made. Those are the big things on my plate ... plus customer service and reminding people in the Nelson/Marlborough region that we are only 90 minutes away,” says Andrew. The skifield has had its share of challenges in the past. After its establishment in the early 1980s

Nelson Matters I had a colleague in Parliament this week rib me on what was in Nelson’s water that makes our sports teams so competitive. We should take pride that our teams like Nelson Giants, Tasman Mako and Tasman United are performing at a level way in excess of our population. We also took a healthy stash of Commonwealth Games medals with Jo Edwards (Womens Bowls), Anita McLaren and Kelsey Smith (Womens Hockey) and Trael Joss and Andrew Knewstubb (Mens rugby). It is not Nelson’s water that produces this sporting success but

years of effort. There are the thousands of volunteers who manage, coach, fundraise, referee and support our sports teams and individuals. There are also generous local business sponsors like Nelson Pine, Mike Pero, the Car Company and many others that help fund our clubs and teams. We also should take pride in the standard of our facilities. I stood in a blank field 30 years ago with then Mayors Peter Malone and Kerry Marshall as we dreamed of a multi sports regional facility. Both our councils deserve credit for the way they have cooperated and invested in developing the

Saxton complex. A tribute to the Saxton Velodrome Trust, chaired by Bruce Fraser, on getting this latest facility completed. I was out with the family on Sunday, and like many others, were enjoying the new ride. The childrens road safety training facility inside the velodrome is a must do for young families. I also praise the Nelson City Council for seeing through the upgrade of the Trafalgar Centre. It was great to join a wild Nelson crowd for the nail biting 103-100 Giants win in their latest home game. The basketball was electri-

it became a thriving club field by the mid-1990s. However, after some lean seasons, the field was closed and the slopes were stripped, only two handle lifts remaining. Then a committee was formed to save the ski area and, with various help, Rainbow was re-opened on July 17, 2004. Fourteen seasons later, it is poised to move to another level.

fying, but organisers also deserve credit for the food, commentary and entertainment. The relocation of the velodrome to Saxton will make for a better facility at Trafalgar Park whose grounds are also being upgraded. We have the most exciting ever season ahead with our first ever All Blacks game in Nelson on 8 September. The Tasman Mako are a remarkable story of success that began with the visionary dreams a decade ago from Max Spence and others to unite the strengths of Nelson and Marlborough rugby. I used to get excited when the

Mako beat teams like Hawkes Bay and Manawatu but they are now winning against the giants of rugby like Canterbury, Waikato and Auckland. They have made three of the last four season’s finals. We need to get behind them for their home games in September and October. Tasman United Football is even newer than the Mako but are being coming increasingly competitive and have just appointed a new manager. Their Trafalgar Park games are free and from October, offer great family entertainment. Advt.

Seeing the world through other eyes Amy Russ Local libraries in the Tasman district area are encouraging teens to broaden their horizons by reading books from around the world. The idea is simple. Until May 27, the teens need to read three books - graphic novels, non-fiction or ebooks - that are either written by authors from outside New Zealand, set in other countries, or are about cultures different from their own. They enter their details in the reader passport picked up from the local library, get it stamped by the border librarian and that’s it. They are automatically in to win some fantastic prizes, including one of two Jansport backpacks and brand-new books from authors all around the world. Community Development Assistant Librarian at Richmond Li-

brary, Amy Groome, says that by reading about other cultures and ways of living, teens can develop a better understanding of what it feels like to be young elsewhere in the world. “Reading is a great way for busy teens to relax and lose themselves in another world, as well as vital for strengthening literacy.” The concept is to encourage teens aged 12 years and over to read their way into other cultures, countries and lives. Tasman District Libraries ran a similar event last year for adults and there was so much interest from youth that the teen reading version was born. For more information on how to enter head to or visit the Teen Read Around the World display at your local library.

Focussing on food at the library Richmond Library is holding three fabulously foodie events this month. The first, a Preserve and Recipe Swap, is on Thursday, May 17, between 12-1.00pm. Collections Librarian Ruth Lawley says, “It’s around this time of year that people realise they’ve preserved too much over the summer months and now have more sauce, chutney and jam than they know what to do with. Our Preserve and Recipe Swap is a great opportunity to swap your extra jars of preserves for other people’s extra jars of preserves. You can bring along your favourite recipes to swap as well. This way you’ll end up with some delicious new preserves to try while also meeting like-minded people.” On Monday, May 21, between 12-1.00pm, registered nutritionist Sarah La Touche will visit to give a talk about building healthy gut bacteria and provide free recipes to get you going in your healthy new diet. “While we can’t change our genes, we can impact them via diet and lifestyle. Harnessing the power of diet and lifestyle can increase the diversity of our gut flora and is a critical factor in the treatment and prevention of disease,” says Sarah. The final event is a Shared Pot-Luck lunch in the Constance Barnicoat Room, Thursday, May 24, between 12-1.00pm. Bring a plate of food – maybe even something made from one of the library’s recipe books – to share with others. People need to also bring cutlery and a plate. It’s a lovely opportunity to share a meal and make new friends. All events are free and bookings are not required.

Music fills the soul Amy Russ Reporter

Steve Rollo, pastor of Richmond Church of Christ, has been involved with RSE (Recognised Seasonal Employee) scheme workers for the last five years. On Saturday, April 28, nearly fifty Vanuatu RSE workers filled the Richmond Church of Christ with the

sweet sound of music and gave a concert to help fundraise for the building of their church on their Pacific island home. A lot of the Vanuatu members of the RSE became part of the church during their time in Nelson, and would come back each year while working in New Zealand, for services. Steve learned that, while the workers were here, every week they would

send part of their wages back home. The money was used to buy cement to help rebuild the foundations for their church in Big Bay, on the island of Santo, which was devastated by a cyclone. Steve says the village is very isolated with no water, no sewage or power. “We, as a community, wanted to help them out with fund-raising. We are also helping to raise funds for a worker here

whose wife has heart problems. She cannot have the surgery in Vanuatu, so we are helping the family to get her the much-needed treatment. She is a mother of three children who need her to be healthy.” “For people to hear a group of 47 people singing together like that was magic,” says Steve. They sang to a full house, and raised $1200 for their cause.

Home Invasion breaking out Everyone deserves a second chance, according to playwright Justin Eade. This theme of redemption is played out in Justin’s latest play, Home Invasion, which debuted at the Nelson Fringe Festival earlier this month. “The Fringe Festival is a great opportunity to test new works to an audience before taking them on the road,” says Justin. The former SKY television presentation director gave up his lucrative career 10 years ago to follow his passion – writing. “It was quite a big step, but you need to follow your heart,” he says. Since then, he’s written 20 film scripts and seven plays, sketch comedy and sitcom episodes for TV3, and had radio plays and short stories produced for RNZ National, as well as

optioning a couple of feature length scripts in the US. In 2015 he staged the play ‘Central Otago Man’ and his show ‘Maungatapu’ debuted at the 2017 Arts Festival. Justin was inspired to write Home Invasion after interviewing kids who’d turned their lives around after being in youth gangs in South Auckland, as part of an article he was writing. Home Invasion follows the story of Taylor, a self-entitled youth who breaks into an ex SAS soldier Peter Methune’s house. Recognising the need for a second chance, Peter offers Taylor a way out. Despite some rocky moments and a clash of attitudes, an unlikely friendship develops between the two. “It’s always exciting to see your words and characters come to

life, and I’m delighted with the four local actors who’ve taken on the roles.” Former Waimea College student Stuart Corkery picked up the award for Most Promising Emerging Talent at the Fringe Festival for his portrayal of Taylor. Stuart is supported by current Waimea College head student Lucy King, who plays the role of his girlfriend Miri. Motueka’s Nathan Green plays Peter Methune, the emotionally-stunted ex SAS soldier, and seasoned Nelson actor Miranda Warner plays Sandy, his estranged wife. Home Invasion is playing at the Ghost Light Theatre in Nelson, May 16 to 19, Imagine Theatre, Motueka, May 24 to 26 and Village Theatre, Takaka, May 27. Go to www.eventfinda., search ‘Home Invasion’ for ticketing details.

Focus on WakeField

This photo was taken 1903. The Johnsons’ Saddlery shop in Edward St was found to be built across the boundary between two adjoining sections. Neither owner would sell to the other. So, the building was sawn in two on the survey line and the pieces jacked apart. The building stands in between the Wakefield supermarket and the Wakefield Hotel. According to Marion J. Stringer in her book ‘Just Another Row of Spuds’, published in 1999, the dispute over the boundary line was a terrific row that led to J. McPherson and Son being hired to saw off the section claimed by Hodgson and jack it over 4 feet to Hodgson’s side, leaving an unsightly gap for many years.

Alongside these, the Outdoor Bowls and Squash divisions have actively promoted themselves and had very good seasons, as have most of the sports adjuncts that we have in our club.

HLS Waimea Senior A 21 v Nelson 24 This top of the table clash at Jubilee Park and the recent history of tightly-fought matches between the two sides ensured this game was always going to be a closelyfought battle. The game was played for the Noel Barton Trophy and was an enterprising game with both sides having the mindset and skills to attack from deep in their own halves. Both teams scoring three tries each with in-form Waimea right winger Mo Tau scoring a brace and left winger Mitch Amberger also scoring after some good build up play by both backs and forwards. Strong games by captain Dan Hytongue and locks Limeke Caginau and Leigh McBrydie with the ball in hand ensured quality front-foot ball for the home team’s exciting young backline. For Waimea, Tom Crosbie got his first start of the season at halfback and acquitted himself well in the tight encounter, with Jake McLaughlin also getting a first start for the season at tighthead prop. Waimea Senior B 48 v Valley Stags 7 Waimea div2 having their first home game of the season and coming off a loss last week knew they had to start strong and that they did.

Todd Strawbridge was the first to dot down for the red and whites, after lurking on the wing the ranging lock stretched out the big arm to get it over the chalk line. That followed with a lot of time spent in the oppositions half and taking a reasonable 17-0 led into halftime. The 2nd half couldn’t have started any better, with Strawbridge taking a ripper of a kick off under pressure and busting through only to off-load to Sam Pestell (man of the match) who found a few extra gears, sprinting 30 odd meters and linking with Unga Penitani, only to receive it back from Unga and score under the posts. From this point Waimea kicked on with some clinical structure and finish on top, 48-7. Moutere Woman v WOBRFC Woman

With a lot of injuries and unavailabilities, it was always going to be tough journey over to face a full strength Moutere team. Waimea ladies still managed to field 17 players, which is a credit to all involved in attracting new players to the club. Moutere started strongly and opened the scoring with an unconverted try. Waimea responded well, gathering momentum, and with good passages of well-applied pressure deep into the Moutere 22, resulting in a penalty being awarded to Waimea. Quick-thinking Stephanie Mitchell took a quick tap and forced her way over for an unconverted try. Moutere started to control the game and scored five more tries through their speedy backs before Waimea’s hard work resulted in a converted try to hard-working Jaunita Thom-

son. At halftime Moutere led 39 points to 12. Both teams started the second half strongly, attacking at every opportunity and, with the new Waimea partnership of Tess Golding and Tessa Hillier gaining confidence in both attack and defence, were a constant threat to Moutere. The first try of the second half went to Moutere after some slick handling from their backs. Waimea defended valiantly and started to gain possession, Leah Miles proving to be a thorn in Moutere’s side by being a constant menace at every breakdown. The game went from end to end with another try to Jaunita Thomson and one to Tess Golding. At the final whistle the score line was Moutere 58 Waimea 26. The players of the day for Waimea were Leah Miles, Jaunita Thomson and Tess Golding. Waimea coach Adam Fraine said after the game, it wasn’t the result that the team wanted but what stood out was the spirit and hard work of the squad, which was fantastic. With players being asked to play out of position and a number of players playing their first game of rugby ever, the attitude and commitment was first class. WOBRFC U18 5 V Nelson College Blue 65.

Nail biter ends in draw House of Travel Nelson Netball Centre Premier game: Richmond F45 vs Stoke NBS, played at Saxton Stadium, 44-44. Stoke scored on their first centre pass and then Richmond F45 put their foot down for the next two quarters. Great pressure from Richmond’s defence Kat Jones & Sarah Steel brought about unforced errors which they managed to capitalise quickly with a commanding 11 – 5 lead at the first break. Shooters Belinda Koloamatangi and Jelena Vucinic had 18 attempts compared to Stoke’s nine.


Stoke brought their tall goal shoot Megan Thomson into the second quarter with a 15 – 23 score at half-time. The start of the 3rd quarter saw Stoke NBS fired up and Richmond F45 allowed Stoke to scored seven unanswered goals to come within one of Richmond, Richmond scored three, before Stoke scored another five unanswered. Both teams scoring on their own next three centre passes with a 30 – 29 going into the final period. The last quarter was a nail-biter with both teams working hard to stay in

control and push through. Richmond F45 would have to be happy with their increased shooting accuracy, however, they would like to string together a solid four quarters and keep that consistent throughout the game. Stoke, on the other hand, would be relieved that they snuck home with a draw. Richmond’s circle defenders Kat Jones and Sarah Steele were rock solid and had very few contacts/obstructions against their name. Lisa Book offered the stability through court and she toiled to deliver good ball to her shooters.

Our plan to support future regional growth Waimea’s Mens Hockey Division 3 team secured a win against Federal on Sunday. Photo: Supplied.

Mother’s Day match intensely fought Div. 3 Men (Waimea 4 vs Federal 2) On Sunday, May 13, Men’s hockey teams Waimea and Federal took to the Saxton Fields Hockey Turf 1 at 2.30pm for an entertaining game. Waimea had a strong first half, heading into the break with a 3-1 lead. The second half saw Federal come back fighting for

every ball but Waimea hung on to secure the win 4-2. The match was played with intensity from both teams while a stand-out player from the match was Federal’s goalkeeper who played exceptionally well throughout. There is no senior hockey for the NHA Club competition

this week as many clubs from the Top of South will be travelling to West Coast for the Top of the South Tournament. We send all the teams travelling our best wishes for the competition. Our club competition Div 4/5 will continue this Wednesday and Friday as normal.

Swans have football win With the weekend being a designated Chatham Cup schedule, and knocked out in the first round, the Fresh Choice Richmond 1st team had time off to watch the club’s other teams playing around the region. The Chatham Cup is New Zealand Football’s premier club knockout cup competition that has 137 teams entering this year and, unfortunately, the young Richmond side were beaten 2 – 0 by FC Nelson in the opening round on Anzac Day. There were 5 senior games at Jubilee Park on Saturday, May 12, seeing three of the lower division sides Thistle, Stags


and Bogans all taking on teams from FC Nelson, and the 2nd division reserves playing Nelson College. The main game of the day was at 3pm with the women’s 1st division About Beauty at Monaco Richmond Swans playing Nelson Suburbs on the number one ground in front of a good-sized crowd. Looking for their first win of the season, the Swans came out with a clear game plan and dominated their opponents for the majority of the match. The comfortable 3 – 0 win gave them their first three points this year. In the youth league the three

Every year Network Tasman reviews its Asset Management Plan. This plan helps Network Tasman to identify and anticipate key trends in electricity usage on its network and undertake the necessary planning required to keep its consumer-owned network safe, reliable, and fit for purpose. As part of its annual review, the company considers recent network performance (safety and reliability), an updated demand forecast, and the current status of capital and network renewal projects. In its 2018 Asset Management Plan, which is now available on Network Tasman’s website at asset-management-plan, the company has indicated that it plans to invest $117 million in its network over the next 10 years. In the 2018-2019 year there are three significant items in the offing: z

Increasing the capacity of the substation supplying the Motueka area to support future load growth


Installing a new 11kV feeder in Annesbrook to allow for new business connections, the expansion of existing businesses and increased security of supply


Installing a substation at Wakapuaka to meet load growth in the outer northern part of Nelson City.

“Looking forward, one of the largest items in the next 5 years is the development of a new transmission grid exit point in Brightwater.”

Planned network investment for 2018/19 Here’s what we’re planning to invest in over the coming year. As you canCapital see nextexpenditure year’s investment focuses on supporting regional growth. 2018/19 System growth Asset replacement and renewal Undergrounding Reliability, safety and environment Expenditure on non-network assets Consumer connection

58% 17% 6% 12% 3% 4%

“During the next five years we have identified significant increased demand in the industrial sector,” says Network Tasman’s Network Manager, Murray Hendrickson, “driven by cold storage, shellfish processing/extraction, rest homes, hop processing and dairy irrigation. “Land subdivision for residential growth is also strong and, in the later part of the ten-year planning period, electric vehicle charging is expected to have an impact.”

Different route best option during Lower Queen Street works Drivers are advised to avoid Lower Queen Street between Gladstone Road and Headingly Lane over the next month or two to avoid delays due to roadworks. The recommended diversion will be advertised using mobile sign boards. The diversion isn’t compulsory and Lower Queen Street is open, but there is a much higher likelihood of traffic delays as the work progresses. The roadworks are needed to support growth in Richmond – we’re increasing the water supply and improving the ability to drain stormwater in the area. For more information search for Lower Queen.

Special Grants Fund open for applications The Special Grants Fund, designed to encourage and support significant new events or projects within Tasman District, is now open for applications.

Up to $50,000 is available each year, providing we make a surplus as a result of extra growth throughout the District. In years where there is no surplus, Special Grants funding will not be offered. Find out more: You can read more about the criteria and application process for Special Grants on our website – visit, search term “Special Grants”, or contact Community Partnerships Coordinator Mike Tasman Jones on Ph. 03 543 8400.

The first stage of the project was to install a new sewer main in the Riwaka-Kaiteriteri Road from Cederman Drive to Goodall Road, replacing the existing pipe under the Tapu Bay estuary. Moving the pipe into the road means it is more easily accessible for maintenance and protects the estuary from any accidental spills or overflows. The two pump stations now need to be upgraded to push wastewater in the opposite direction to the new main in the road. The work requires significant upgrades and modernisation of the pump stations and changes to the pipelines between the pump stations. The work at the two reserves will take until July to complete and will mean some disruption to access to the reserves. Some parking spaces at Stephens Bay and an area to the north of Tapu Bay reserve will be fenced off while construction is carried out. There will also be some construction traffic on the roads around Stephens Bay. People using the reserves should take care when accessing the steep access road to Tapu Bay Reserve and be aware there is construction taking place. To minimise disruption in Tapu Place, Anarewa Crescent and Stephens Bay Road, the new pipelines will be ‘slip-lined’ inside the current pipes. However, trenches are required where the pipeline changes direction, so there will be some open trenches on the route.
