Santa (still) coming to town Jo Kent Reporter

jo@waimeaweekly.co.nz

Despite the Richmond Santa Parade being cancelled for the first time ever due to Level 2 restrictions, Santa will still be coming to town. This year, things will look a lot

different due to crowd number control. Events coordinator for Richmond Unlimited Sheena Murtagh says that scrapping the parade with just two weeks to go was a hard decision to make. “We were just a fortnight away and people were starting to put more time and effort into their

floats, so we had to make the call sooner rather than later.” But she says the group is committed to bringing Santa to Richmond and thanks to sponsors Pak N Save, NBS and Richmond Mall, that will still happen. “This year Santa’s float will drive along a designated route around individual neighbourhoods rath-

er than just down Queen Street, which means we comply with Covid-19 restrictions.” The plan is that the festive float will be followed by a pack of elves who will be handing out treats on their way past, with a choir of carol singers bringing up the rear. “If you live on the route, invite your friends and family over

for a garden picnic or BBQ and watch the procession. We can do this safely and kids will still get to receive lollies from Santa’s little helpers and feel that community spirit.” She says that as Carols in the Park at Washbourn Gardens is also

Brewers join forces for new venture Jo Kent Four of the region’s biggest breweries have put their rivalries aside for a brand-new collaboration with online craft beer service, Beer Hug. The site offers a craft beer experience for customers who purchase boxes online, either as a subscription or a one-off. Staff from Hop Federation, Sprig + Fern and Townshend assembled at Eddyline last week to help load up 3600 craft beers into 300 boxes. Eddyline owner Mic Heynekamp says this is the first time the breweries have worked together on something like this. “In these uncertain times, we all need to support each other, so we came up with the idea to put together a mixed box of beers from some of the best breweries in the Top of the South.”

make this happen and hope that by doing this, everyone gets a sprinkling of Christmas magic,” Sheena says.

Eddyline’s brewery expansion manager Adam Tristram says the Nelson Regional Development Agency, Tasman Journeys and Marchfest have all got behind the project as well. In fact, hidden in the first shipment of boxes is a free ticket to Marchfest 2023, which is worth $55. All the beers at Marchfest have been specially commissioned for the event and have never previously been tasted by the public. “It’ll be like discovering a golden ticket in your beer box,” Adam says. He says they are hoping

to get more local breweries on board with the Beer Hug boxes as time goes on and “really give punters across the country a taste of the region”. Eddyline has also had recent success in the Brewers Guild of New Zealand Beer Awards, coming away with eight medals more than some breweries twice their size. Mic says the eight medals represent a lot of hard work and dedication by the entire team as they are always pursuing the goal to constantly improve. “Consumer feedback, the real judges of our beers, has been overwhelmingly positive.” Go to beerhug. co.nz for information.

Eagled-eyed Richmond residents may have spotted several benches appearing along Hill Street. The wooden seats are part of a larger programme providing infrastructure for public transport services, which will expand to Wakefield and Motueka in 2023. Senior infrastructure planning advisor for Tasman District Council, Drew Bryant, says the benches are a way of marking more formalised bus stops around Richmond. “At present, the Richmond Loop bus route is hail and ride, which means it’s a flag down service, but feedback from the public suggested there was a need for designated spots along the route for people to wait at.” In two years, bus services in Richmond will expand to Wakefield and Motueka. “We committed to the benches when we put the new bus routes in, but installation got a bit delayed with Covid. Knowing we are going to change things in two years time, we

We’re future proofing our transport network.” Hill Street has had five benches installed already with road markings, sign posts and some bus shelters to follow in the coming months. “There are four more benches planned, two on Bateup Road, one on Wensley Road and one on Gladstone Road, with subsequent benches in Richmond West in the near future,” Drew says. The bench installation around the cemetery at Wens-

ley Road has been slightly delayed while plans to protect the trees and the root systems are factored in. A few of the spots will become redundant in the future once the new bus routes get underway. However, Drew says the benches will still provide a seat for people to rest while they are out walking. “That’s something which has come out of our policy and that is to ensure adequate resting spots for people on their walks.” The budget for the work in the last financial year was $35,000 with a further $128,00 this financial year.

Appeal over war medals found at rubbish tip

Lorde cancels Upper Moutere show: Kiwi musician Lorde has postponed her show at Neudorf Vineyards in Upper Moutere until February 2023. Uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 and the new ‘traffic light system’ have forced her decision. The newly rescheduled date for her performance at Neudorf will be 27 February 2023. Those unable to attend the new date can get a full refund if requests are submitted before 10 December.

A nationwide search to reunite six war medals with their owner has moved to Nelson, after links to a Stoke cemetery were discovered by veterans determined to see them back in the recipient’s family. The World War 1 and 2 medals were found at a refuse site in Napier, when a chance sighting of an antique silver box among the rubbish revealed the extraordinary find. Site worker Jeremy Robertson says, when he opened the box he knew someone would be missing the collection of medals. “My brother is an ex-military veteran, so I rang him straight away and he told me to send the medals to him and he’d try to trace the owner.” Simon Robertson posted his brother’s find on the Facebook group ‘Onward Bar’ which is for serving and retired service personnel from the New Zealand Defence Force. He says, within 24 hours he

Smart bench installed at Moturoa/Rabbit Island: One of New Zealand’s first smart benches has been installed at Rabbit Island. The bench can charge mobile phones, both wirelessly and cabled, and provides free wifi data access. It can also keep track of air and noise pollution levels and is installed at one of the island’s more remote spots where the cycle trail meets the Mapua ferry. Tasman has fastest-selling property in NZ: The average time for property to sell in Tasman is now the fastest in the country at just 25 days, says REINZ. Data showed the Tasman property market saw a 28.6 per cent increase in its median house prices over the past year, with prices rising from $700,000 to $900,000, which is a “record high” for the region.

When Campbell died in his 60s in Nelson, his medals went to his first-born son John Graham Colin Campbell, who later died in 2011. His second son Donald James Campbell died in 2014 and all three men are buried at Marsden Valley Cemetery. “We are really hoping that someone from the area knows of the family,” Simon says. They believe that maybe they were stolen and later discarded, or they were accidently thrown out with the box without realising the medals were inside. One of the medals has an oakleaf, denoting that Campbell was mentioned in despatches for his service. “To receive such a medal means Campbell would have had to have done something above and beyond,” Simon says. “It’s heartbreaking to think after such a celebrated career his medals ended up on a tip.” Veterans from across the country ask the public to get in touch if they can help.

School chair resigns over vaccine mandate Jenny Nicholson Reporter

jennifer@waimeaweekly.co.nz

Schools, early childhood centres and community services may look a little different today as the full effect of the Government’s vaccine mandate comes to light. The Covid-19 vaccine mandate came into effect for teachers and healthcare workers on Tuesday, meaning that school and early childhood staff who have contact with children must of had their first vaccination as of Monday, and be fully vaccinated by the start of January. Alistair Nicholl has been chair of the Lake Rotoiti School board for about 20 years - until yesterday. He has resigned as he is unwilling to implement the mandate that if an unvaccinated member of staff or the community walks onto the school grounds, the board chairman would be expected to call the police. For Alistair this has been an emotional decision. “I couldn’t speak highly enough of the staff and it’s my biggest regret to leave them,” he says. “Some of them are under duress to be vaccinated or lose their job.” He says individuals are not mak-

ing these decisions lightly. “It’s costing them their job and possibly their house,” he says. “That’s the reality of what they were asking me to implement.” He says these people are not strangers but people who are friends he has known for many years. Lake Rotoiti principal Mike Allen said on Tuesday that they had found staff to fill a gap for the day, but it was very difficult. “For relief staff, that can be a three hour return drive and not many are willing to do that.” Although finding staff was difficult logistically, the loss of people he had worked with was emotionally hard. “These are wonderful people, and they are making a moral stand,” he says. Nelson Principals’ Association president Symon Beattie says the vaccine mandate has created a challenging situation, but it is “business as usual” for schools this week. He said most schools in the region had only a “small percentage” of staff who were hesitant about the vaccination, but a couple might lose more. Unvaccinated staff won’t immediately lose their jobs but will have to go through a process and will

no longer be able to be on site. “If it is a non-teaching staff member there could be options for them to work off-site. For some, there may be an exemption.” If the employees’ work cannot reasonably be rearranged, then they are put on leave, he adds. Employees in the education sector need to be fully vaccinated by

Symon Beattie, president of the Nelson Principals’ Association 1 January, 2022. If there are no alternatives to termination, schools will give notice that employment will be terminated according to the conditions of the employment agreement. Wakefield School Principal Peter Verstappen says they had a very small number of staff who were

affected by the mandate, but they had staff in place. “Everyone is being sincere in working through the challenges in good faith,” he says. “It has been challenging at times, but I am fortunate that we have a staff and community who understand the complications.” Waimea College Principal Scott Haines says all teachers at the college are vaccinated, while there are a few support staff that are waiting on exemptions. He says significant time has been invested in gathering the vaccination status and evidence of all teaching staff, support staff and volunteers. Another local principal said the mandate announced only a matter of two or three weeks ago has imposed a significant additional workload on principals and board members as they grapple with how it applies to employment. Richmond School’s principal Tim Brenton was happy to comment on the school’s position regarding teachers needing to be vaccinated. He says his job was made very simple because 100 per cent of their 47 teachers had had at least one vaccine, and 45 had had both vaccinations. “I’m absolutely delighted,” he

says. Some other schools in the region are the same position. Waimea Intermediate principal Justine McDonald says they have a ‘full deck’ and have kept all their staff. Nelson Tasman Kindergarten Association president Craig Vercoe says they do have a small number of staff not at work on Tuesday. “It’s a small number, the exact number is sensitive.” He says it has been difficult because it is people’s livelihoods, but that the association has a responsibility to protect children. “We respect their personal decision and have supported them during this challenging time.” Meanwhile, DHBs are looking to put staff on paid leave while working through the consultation phase on a case-by-case basis. Spokesperson for 20 DHBs across the country, Rosemary Clements, says as at 9am on Monday November 15, approximately 2-3 per cent of staff remained unvaccinated. Individual DHB rates were not currently available. “We will have more information about the number of staff who have been stood down and those who have resigned this week, as final numbers are confirmed over the next couple of days.”

Flying on a piece of history Jenny Nicholson Excitement battled with nervousness as the time came for my flight on a 1940s De Havillan aircraft. I pondered what it would have been like for those flying when it was still relatively new, and thought they would have probably felt the same emotions. One hundred years ago, when Tom Newman climbed aboard the first flight to Nelson, he must surely have thought of the risk, but felt the experience worth it. Now, as part of the 100th anniversary celebrations, flights on the older planes were available to the public. My check-in for the flight on the De Havilland DH89 Dominie ZK was somewhat different. It wasn’t my bag that was weighed, it was me. And, as we arrived at the plane, those with more muscle were first on and moved to the front, while 5-year-old Hugo Board sat in the back seat wearing his pilot hat and aviator glasses. Climbing aboard, the first thing I noticed was the lack of space. There would be no 7kg carryon luggage on this plane! Then I sank down in the most comfortable plane seat ever. The pilot did the usual briefing about safety and seatbelts, with a few changes. “You don’t need to put your cellphone on flight mode,” he said. “There’s nothing on this plane it could interfere with.” He pointed out the emergency exits, including a hatch in the roof, which he thought might have been for if a plane crashed into the sea. I wondered if the pilot was planning to close the window.

Jenny Nicholson after her flight on a plane from the 1940s. Photo: Sarah Board. He called out to make sure everyone on the tarmac was safely out of the way before starting the engine. And he didn’t close the window. I couldn’t work out if we were in half take off. The nose of the plane was very high, but we were obviously still taxiing. Take off was smooth and we headed toward the Boulder Bank. Even though I was sitting by a wing, the views were incredible both sides. As we turned and came back toward the airport, I again wondered what the first passengers would have felt flying over the hills and sea.

We live in a beautiful area, and even with houses and cars dotting the landscape, it was easy to imagine those first travellers seeing the same green hills and blue sea. It was a little surreal being in the noisy old plane seeing everyone wearing masks and taking photos on their iPhones. The landing was a little bouncy and then we navigated the small space out onto a step stool that had been placed by the door. It amazes me that the trip on a plane from about 80 years ago could feel so safe. It was a privilege to have had a taste of aviation history.

Letters from the heart Jo Kent Reporter

jo@waimeaweekly.co.nz

Appleby School has launched a new pen pal scheme which connects students to retirees at Waimea Plains Village. Teacher Talia Ryan says she wanted her pupils to experience the joy of giving and receiving letters. “Teaching letter writing was important to me as it’s something that’s overlooked in this day and age of devices and screens.” Together with teachers Andrew Mason and Jodie Brown, they sat down with their Year 5 and 6 classes and put good old-fashioned pen to paper. “We taught them everything from where to write the address to how to start and finish a letter.” The students, who are aged 9 to 11, wrote about themselves and what their interests are to find a perfect match at the retirement village. “Letter writing is about communication and connection and we are hoping that some friendships will form long-term from this initiative.” She says that once Level 1 resumes, the pen pals may have a chance to meet in person. “Both sets of people will get something really good from this. The kids will be able to experience that

feeling of excitement when they receive a letter addressed to them, and the adults will enjoy connecting with a generation that may have been out of their reach.” Some of the children may not be lucky enough to have grandparents in their lives and vice versa, so this could be the only chance they have to connect intergenerationally with someone outside of their immediate circle, Talia says. “We have 56 pupils who have written letters and we’ve got matches for every single one of them. It’s a mutually beneficial project and the kids can’t wait to get their letters back.” Manager at Waimea Plains, Kerryn Tasker, says the initiative was so popular with the residents that they got to work straight away. “I’ve found suitable matches for all of the letters, so now we have a child who wants to work with animals paired with a retired vet, a girl who wants to work in maternity paired with a midwife, and so on.” The letters have been received with great enthusiasm and Judy Kennedy, one of the residents, has even offered to respond to more than one child. “I am happy to write to a couple of the kids as I think creating connections between generations is so important.”

Local pals bring marathon to rainy Rabbit Island Jo Kent Reporter

jo@waimeaweekly.co.nz

When the Queenstown Marathon got cancelled, not even an injury or wet weather stopped Jax Winslow and Roachelle Ingerson completing the 42km distance locally instead. “We’ve spent months training to run in memory of our dads, and have raised over $7000 for Nelson Tasman Hospice, so we were desperate to do it,” Jax says. Tragically, Roachelle sustained an injury during training which meant she couldn’t run the course, but was determined to see it out on a bike instead. “I was truly gutted that after all that training I got injured, but I rode next to Jax on an e-bike and carried extra supplies of food and electrolytes for her.” She says going 42km on a push bike would have been way too hard on her groin injury. “I can walk but I’m in constant pain. It’s devastating. I’ve been a runner my whole life and now I can’t run at all.” Jax was thrilled she still got

Roachelle says she hasn’t given up hope of running her first marathon on foot and still feels accomplished as she trained up to 33km which was her longest run yet. “I’ll start training again as soon as I’m able.”

Nelson Tasman Hospice communications coordinator Rachel Moffitt says there is a funding shortfall of $2.5 million each year to provide specialised palliative care. “The money they have raised is the equivalent of seven days of care for someone in hospice. They have done such an amazing job of fundraising.” The running route started at the Honest Lawyer in Monaco, then on to Rabbit Island and back again. “It was really windy and quite wet, but we got round and are feeling very sore now. I’m walking around like an 80-year-old,” Jax says. “But we did it against the odds and and that’s the main thing.” She says that during the last 15km they were running into a head wind and the rain was an absolute killer. “It ended up taking us 4.34 hours.” She says there was so much support and love for the pair on the day. “It was a really emotional day for us and very special. Thanks to everyone who came along to support us, despite the awful weather. Now we can relax.”

Students from Wakefield School have been gifted kapa haka costumes from Pub Charities. Nikau Wise and Asha Maihi are wearing korowai that Asha’s mother Michelle also had made to give to the school. The kapa haka group performed several songs to celebrate receiving the new costumes. The group meet once a week and Nikau says that he loves being part of kapa haka and sees it as a good opportunity to learn more about te ao Māori. A highlight this year for the group was performing for the local kindergarten pre-lockdown. Photo: Jenny Nicholson.

Waimea win big at Readers’ Cup Jenny Nicholson Reporter

jennifer@waimeaweekly.co.nz

Waimea College students Carly Morgan, Xanthe Southward, Isla Hill, Zack Ellis and Brooke Robinson may be keen readers, but they were also full of energy at the recent national SLANZA 2021 Year 9 Readers’ Cup Competition. Although the competition was via Zoom, the Wacky Wonker team arrived in full costume, and in

the time between rounds, some were seen dancing and cartwheeling around the library. Their cartwheels could have become celebrations as they comfortably won the competition that saw them having to read six books and answer questions from each. Waimea College business and information systems teacher, Naomi Chapman, says everyone enjoyed working with the team who had a real sense of fun and were supportive of each other throughout the process.

For the young, the Holy Bible seems to have given way to the internet and cellphones. But is it a good sign?

Tiny homes are how they lived in the 1800s. It’s a sad reflextion on the market and a genius con job that has people thinking this is progress. Peter Felhofer I’d love one, but I have 5 children. Jannelle Patterson For many tiny homes are a more practical option, and indirectly encourage less clutter and less spending on unnecessaries. I just saw a plan from a retirement village - a 2 bedroom (one double, one single) unit of 65 square metres. While not tiny it would be extremely practical for singles and couples, with maybe one child. Don’t need big sections for these. 250 square metres would do it.

Local History exploring our

Proudly brought to you by...

Richmond’s war memorial Robyn Parkes As WW1 ended, thoughts around the country turned to how to remember those who had fallen in the war. Richmond began this process mid-1919. At a council meeting held in June, Mr A Gilbert, suggested a concrete road between Nelson and Richmond, with columns at terminal points as a suitable form of memorial and later planting an avenue of trees. However, this was turned down as being too expensive. Later in October, the War Memorial Committee discussed several further options and finally decided to recommend that the memorial should take the form of a YMCA building or saltwater baths. A motion was made by Reverend W Wills that, “the War Memorial for Richmond should take the form of a YMCA building for the district and that a tablet bearing the names of those who went into the war and those who made the supreme sacrifice be erected”. The motion was passed and a committee was set up to carry out the resolutions of the

meeting. With the decision made, the directors of the Richmond branch of the Young Men’s Christian Association came to the public with a special appeal for funds to erect a building. Plans had been prepared for a brick building which included a lounge or social hall, a billiard room, classroom, a ladies rest room and a large hall to be used as a gymnasium or for entertainments or lectures. By the end of November £1636 had been raised. The memorial foundation stone was laid by Hon. W Downie Stewart, Minister of Internal Affairs, in front of a large crowd on the 17th of August 1921. The building, unfortunately, was not to be built as to the original plan due to the cost, but the crowd was told that it would be completed at the earliest possible moment. A tablet would be erected in the building with the names of the fallen. Mr Varney conveyed that, “we truly desire that the building in memorising those who fell during the Great War should ever remind the boys of Richmond of the self-sacrifice of their elder brothers who

went on the great adventure to fight for King and Country”. The location of Cambridge Street, next to the institute, was chosen and Mr W Wilkes was the contractor. Initially the social room, ladies rest room, boy’s Bible classroom and a billiard room would be completed. The inscription ‘War Memorial Building’ was to go on the front of the building in cement lettering. On the 23rd of November 1922 at 6pm the Memorial YMCA building was unveiled by her Excellency Viscountess Jellicoe in the presence of a large gathering. Mr Wilkes presided over the ceremony and began by giving his sympathy to those families who were still mourning the loss of their dear ones. These families were to enter the building before the general public to be able to look at the tablet that recorded the names of their men. The ceremony included a short service both outside and inside the building by Revs. F J Daynes, J R Nelson and E T Jones. The last post was sounded at the conclusion of the ceremony.

Sport ‘Fins up’ for another final www.shuttersport.co.nz

Jonty Dine and Peter Jones A tenacious display of goal line defence saw the Mako survive a late Magpies’ onslaught and book its third consecutive NPC Premiership final on Saturday. Tasman showed plenty of grit before replacement Levi Aumua snatched the crucial turnover that sealed the 33-27 win. The Mako made the perfect start in Napier with Andrew Makalio rumbling over from a maul as the visitors took an early 10-0 lead. Hawke’s Bay didn’t take long to strike back. Danny Toala created the reply for Jonah Lowe before captain Tom Parsons sneaked blindside to score a second for the hosts. A stunning bust by Leicester Fainga’anuku saw the big centre break three tackles and set up fullback Andrew Knewstubb for the try. A fortuitous fourth try followed through winger Timoci Tavatavanawai, despite replays show-

ing a clear forward pass to Macca Springer who made the initial line break. Marino Makele-Tu’u reduced the deficit with the game’s sixth try right on the stroke of halftime to send the sides to the shed at 2517. Hawke’s Bay opened the scoring in the second half as lock Geoff Cridge powered over to make it a one-point game. Lincoln McClutchie put the Magpies in front for the first time with a superb long-range penalty. Fainga’anuku picked off a poor Magpie’s pass and showed great speed to go 60 metres and reclaim the lead with 10 minutes to go. Hawke’s Bay rode back-to-back penalties and threw its strongest weapon at Tasman, the rolling maul. However, the Mako held firm and booked its spot in the final and a shot at history. The Mako also avenged its Ranfurly Shield loss to the Bay earlier in the season. “We had a really deep look at that

It’s ‘fins up’ to another NPC final for Tasman backline stars Leicester Fainga’anuku and Alex Nankivell. Photo: Shuttersport. [previous] game … where we could grow and get better,” said coach Andrew Goodman. “So, to see some growth in those areas today was very pleasing. The learnings we took out of that game we have used as motivation through the last few weeks … particularly around edge defence

and taking their time away from them … I think we did particularly well in those areas.” Andrew said the new players had thrived in the Mako environment. “They are just getting more opportunities … that’s all it takes, they are just getting better and

better each week. Guys like Sam Matenga, who has been a mainstay at tighthead, Louie Chapman, who over the last few weeks has grown massively for us, plus Antonio Shalfoon and Te Ahiwaru [Cirikidaveta].” Despite what appeared a serious injury late in the game to Segner threatening to further deplete Tasman’s stocks, Andrew remains philosophical. “It’s been one of those seasons, but there are always guys stepping in … they are getting opportunities and taking them. Tasman’s final opponents will be Waikato, who today beat Canterbury 17-14 in the other semifinal, the NPC decider likely played in Rotorua.

2021 Season in Review Richmond celebrates unprecedented success

Out of the seven Nelson football competitions, Richmond AFC entered six in 2021, winning four. The club’s stellar season of success can be attributed to the strong sense of culture it has developed over recent years. After a ten-year wait, the Richmond division one men’s side finally broke its championship hoodoo, winning its final against a highly-favoured Rangers outfit. This year also saw the Hothouse Creative Richmond Foxes continue to set the benchmark for women’s football in Nelson with their third first division league title in a row. Rounding off the success, the Helen Ruston Richmond Hornbills claimed

It would seem other clubs are beginning to match the quality of Richmond, evident in the goal differential from this year (21), compared with 76 and 53 the two seasons prior.

men’s third division while the Tasman Auto Electrics Richmond Bogans took out men’s fifth division. Club president Chris Sibbald says the results reflect the efforts of the entire club whanau. “It is all about attitude and the environment we have built here.”

A monkey off the back

Four from five for Foxes

The Foxes hat-trick of titles sees them sit comfortably at the top of local women’s football. Marketing and communications coordinator Holly De Cesare says the Foxes have benefited from consistency and a loyal group of women. “We have been very fortunate to keep our core of senior players throughout those six years, and the team has really developed and excelled from that

The men’s first division side also enjoyed an historic season, ending its decade-long title drought with a stunning victory in Marlborough. “That wonder-win over Rangers, it was one of the best football atmospheres I’ve been part of,” Chris says. Similar to the women, the men have managed to retain a large number of its young talent. Chris says the atmosphere they have built at the club creates a desire to stay around. “We are only losing two to university and rest of them are still here for another couple of years.” Chris says coaches Clay Wilhelmus and Joe McIntyre have moulded the young team which has been building for years. “They feel this is a home.” Holly says there has been a big emphasises on sticking to a long-term plan. “Winning wasn’t the end goal, winning was the reward when you have done everything else right.”

2021 Season in Review She says they want to instil these values in every player who dons the red jersey. “From first kicks through to our elite players, we want to be teaching them those back to basic pillars of why we play sport.”

Securing the future

Holly and Chris say there is huge excitement surrounding the future for Richmond Football Club. The club recently met with council to discuss the prospect of a multi sports facility at Jubilee Park. “The concept is of a brand-new community sports hub where rooms could be hired out in

the off season, and we get more sports involved.” “We already share with Waimea Toi Toi United, but we could do so much more.” This ‘blue sky thinking’ is looking to capture the attention of the residents in the 6000 new homes at Berryfields. “There are no sports facilities out there so our catchment area will quadruple, and we want to cater for that with a multi-sport, multi-use facility for that growing community.” The changing rooms are in serious need of an upgrade with women forced to share one facility between them. “We want it to be more inclusive for females, we have seven

senior teams and two changing rooms.” Holly explains that the majority of female players currently get changed and showered at home. “These are big projects. Within the next sort of five years, we are looking to build on the success we have had as a club in the last 2-3 years.” Another key objective for Richmond Football Club is to increase its junior player pool. “All numbers are down so we have to start thinking outside the square to get the kids back playing football.” Holly and Chris say something seems to have finally clicked within the club this season.

“People have realised the gem we are sitting on.”

The team behind the scenes

Of course, a club is only as strong as its support system and Richmond draws on plenty of sponsors and volunteers to survive. “Everyone has been challenged with covid, but we have to thank all our sponsors as we haven’t lost a single one, they have all stayed committed to supporting the club,” says Chris. Holly says many of its volunteering efforts comes from the players themselves. “Volunteers are hard to come by, so it’s great to see some of the younger players putting their hands up to get involved.”

Join the club

To help secure this future for Richmond football, the club is calling for sponsors for the revitalisation of its hub. Richmond is also looking to hire a Football Development Offiicer, an administrator and a social media manager. “We are looking for people. If people are interested, if they want to play, help, meet people, make new friends, build our legacy, this is the club to do it at.” Holly stresses that you don’t need to be young, or even good at football. “We are a family.” For more info go to www.richmon dathletic.co.nz or email president@ richmondathletic.co.nz

Stephen Taylor dominated the Hydralink “War of the Wings” feature race to win round one of the series at Milestone Homes Top of the South Speedway. The Wellingtonian has based himself with the Nelson club, running the 9n Sprint car for the 2021-22 season. He also came away with a heat win and a 3rd placing from the rear in the opening race. That set him up on pole for the 6-lap dash, winning that and starting off the front in the feature race. Taylor was lapping cars at will before a yellow light on lap 17 forced a restart. However, he took off again and another stoppage with 3 laps to go didn’t faze Taylor as he took the chequered flag. There was also a strong contingent of Nelson drivers present with Connor Rangi, Alicia Hill, Sam O’Callaghan and Brandon Parkinson all competing. O’Callaghan finished 5th, Hill 7th and Parkinson 8th in his debut meeting at the track. Brett Nicholls made a menace of himself, having a poke at good mate Alex Hill and then James Nicholson. Josh Nell was the benefactor

of that interaction, winning the opening heat in his first race for the season. Sadly, Hill’s car struck a gremlin again and the fun slowed from race 2. Ian Clayworth showed some strong form to win the final heat after Nicholls won heat 2. The street stock club champs had plenty of carnage with Ryan Musgrove playing havoc with the lead cars. Cody McCarrison came away with the championship, with a welcome return from Steve Soper after co-captaining the West Coast rugby team. Harry Moffatt-Schwass came in 2nd with Bradley Evans 3rd . A strong showing by Meneka Rawson matched it with the boys. The best of the Nelson drivers was 10th birthday boy Locky Martin finishing 2nd in the feature, Baily Bensemann in 3rd and Rawson 4th. The big news for the week was Speedway NZ postponing the national championships for a year due to Covid restrictions up north. Nelson has been affected with four South Island championships now to be held over until 2022-2013 season. The other news was the retirement of Shane Carey, hanging up his race boots after 37 years racing at the Nelson club.

Share your feedback on building coastal structures on Council Reserve land

Tasman signage gets a welcome facelift For the first time in more than 15 years, Tasman District has new fresh roadside welcome signs.

We’re seeking feedback on a draft Coastal Erosion Protection Structures on Council Reserve Land policy. This seeks to clarify the landowner approval process and considerations involved when private landowners want to build a coastal protection structure on a Council Reserve.

Is your pool ready for summer? Under the fencing of swimming pool provisions in the Building Act 2004, owners and occupiers of properties with swimming pools are responsible for ensuring that their swimming pool barriers are compliant. This includes portable or seasonal-type pools which are treated in the same way as permanent residential pools. They must have barriers that restrict unsupervised access by young children if they can hold water to a depth of 400mm or more and have water in them (even if the pool is only partially filled). We need to ensure all pools in our region are inspected at least once every three years. We’ve drawn up a brief checklist that owners can use as a guide. While not exhaustive, the items listed are the most common we find that are not compliant. • My pool has a physical barrier that is intact and free from any climbable objects. • Any gaps in the pool barrier do not exceed 100mm, including underneath. • Where any buildings act as a barrier, windows have restrictors and doors are fixed with self-latching/ self-closing devices and/or an alarm. • My pool gates open away from the pool, self-close and have a child proof latch. • I have a backflow preventer on the tap used for filling the pool. • I only have pool-related activities in the pool area (no gardens or storage area). Visit tasman.govt.nz/swimming-pools for more information or phone 03 543 8400 and ask for the Pool Compliance Officer.

Reimagining Richmond South We have launched a new project to help meet growing housing demand, and local communities have an important role in shaping the potential development. The Reimagining Richmond South project aims to provide for around 2,000 new homes. This will be achieved through the creation of a structure plan, designed with involvement from landowners and locals, as well as potential future residents. We are also engaging with local iwi and stakeholders to ensure the plan is well-informed. The focus for this project covers the area from the current southern boundary of Richmond, southwards to between White Road and Ranzau Road, and into the foothills of the Barnicoat Range. The focus area will be refined based on feedback received. Richmond South was previously indicated as a potential urban growth area through the Nelson Tasman Future Development Strategy 2019 and there is currently strong interest in development. The area is likely to appeal to families due to nearby schools and work opportunities. We are running community information events at the Hope Hall on Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 November. Drop-in any time between 11.00 am – 2.00 pm or 4.00 pm – 7.00 pm.

We’re taking a fresh view on walking and cycling

Consultation is open until Friday 26 November. You can read the draft policy and provide feedback on our website or get a copy of the policy and feedback form from any of our service centres and libraries. Visit tasman.govt.nz/feedback.

Get smart at Moturoa / Rabbit Island! As part of our efforts to improve facilities and connectivity within the community, we have installed a smart bench at Moturoa / Rabbit Island. This is one of only a few such benches in New Zealand. It uses green technology to provide both free wifi data access and free charging facilities (both wireless and cabled) for everyone to use in a somewhat remote location (where the cycle trail meets the Māpua Ferry).

We’ve taken a long hard look at how people get around the urban areas of Tasman and created a new Walking and Cycling Strategy. Although it’s a walking and cycling strategy, it actually refers to all micro mobility devices designed for use on footpaths and cycleways. It’s a big picture exercise with targets set out as far as 2050, but it also has a community focus, improving neighbourhood streets. Most significant is the creation of a comprehensive network of connected cycleways and paths across all urban areas, as well as improved pedestrian crossings.

COUNCIL HUI

We realise that not everyone will be able to change their commuting and short journey habits overnight, but with a safer environment people will have better options about the way they travel. There are plans for all residential and town centre areas of Tasman.

Under Covid-19 restrictions, meetings will take place in person and via Zoom video conferencing. Public forum presenters are required to present via Zoom. Visit tasman.govt.nz/meetingscalendar for details and the Zoom link.

The Strategy also includes creating 30km/h residential neighbourhood ‘greenways’ and town centre commercial areas, much like Richmond’s Queen Street, which are safe enough for cyclists and pedestrians of all ages and abilities to use as part of the wider walking and cycling network.

Audit and Risk Committee Friday 19 November, 1.30 pm. No public forum.

Funding has been allocated through the 10-Year Plan 2021 – 2031 with contributions for some aspects of the strategy coming from Waka Kotahi. The Walking and Cycling Strategy will be available on our website from November 20. Official consultation will be open until early March 2022 with several popup community information events also planned.

The smart bench can also integrate environmental monitoring systems, keeping track of air and noise pollution levels. With this technology, there is also plenty of scope for future improvements.

Commissioner (Resource Consent) Hearing Monday 22 November, 9.30 am. Golden Bay Rec Park Management Committee Tuesday 23 November, 9.30 am. No public forum. Full Council Thursday 25 November, 9.30 am. 21663 HotHouse Creative

The old wooden signage had faded and become weather-beaten over the years. The old and shabby welcome to Tasman structures on State Highway 65 at Maruia, State Highway 6 in the Buller Gorge, State Highway 63 at St Arnaud, in Richmond and on Tākaka Hill have all been replaced with new glossy aluminium pictorial signs.
