Teen’s first car wrecked on roadside Phillip Rollo

A hit and run in the early hours of Sunday morning has left a Richmond teenager fearing his car could be written off – just a month after he bought it. Fred Gordon, a 17 year old Waimea College student, came back to get his car after spending the night at a friend’s house on Hill St, only to find a huge dent in the back,

making it near impossible to drive. Having paid for it himself, Fred is now nervously waiting to find out if the car will be too expensive to fix, because the driver of the vehicle that smashed into the back of it drove off in the early hours when it is believed the accident occurred. “When I first saw it I didn’t know if it had been hit. I was just in shock,” says Fred, who only has third party insurance. “I saved up to get it.

I paid for it myself.” A neighbour of the friend told Fred they thought it was a shotgun going off. “They looked out the window but didn’t think anything of it.” Another neighbour heard a crash at approximately 4am, he says. Fred is hoping the person that crashed into his car will step forward, although his father Simon says the fact they drove off indicates they might have been drunk. “You

would have had to be drinking to have not seen it. Or did they fall asleep? You don’t know really.” Just to straighten the chassis could cost Fred $800, which would be on top of the cost for new paint, a new bumper and a new boot lid. “The car is only worth $2500-$3000 so they said if it’s going to SEE PAGE 4

Smartphones to save police time The Government is handing iPhones to more than 100 local police officers, with another half of them to get iPads as well. The new technology should save 22,935 hours of police time in the Tasman District each year, according to National MP Chris Auchinvole, who says the Government’s priority for this time is delivering better public services. “Making sure our police have the tools they need to spend more time on crime prevention, and less time on paperwork is vital to achieving this,” he says. From April, 115 police officers will get a new iPhone 5 while “those on the front line” – including general duties, community constables and officers at one, two and three person stations – get an iPad. “This technology means police will be able to access, input and share vital information immediately, like of-

fender details, without having to go back to their station or use the police radio.” Nelson Police communications manager Barbara Dunn says Tasman District officers based on the West Coast had already trialled the technology with the feedback being excellent. “All found them very useful and easy to use,” she says. She believed the technology will increase time on the street and eliminate the need to come back to the station to make inquiries or do paper work. “People and vehicles can be queried anywhere on the devices. In the past officers had to get on to the police radio to do those queries so it will free up the radio channel for urgent active matters. Police are always looking to make the best use of modern technology.”

Inspector Ross Lienert with one of the iPhones that all front line police officers in the region will receive.

Bob gets his breakfast back

Nicola Gear Richmond

Phillip Rollo

The British version of Marmite will be back on the shelves at English Bob’s Emporium this week, ending a 10-month breakfast war that saw Sanitarium threaten the Richmond retailer with legal action. Bob Wren had hoped to sell the English breakfast spread late last year but his 120 jars of Marmite never made it through customs because Sanitarium claimed that selling it in New Zealand would be a breach of a copyright. The Marmite was imported by Christchurch resident Rob Savage who had set aside a portion of his Queen’s diamond jubilee shipment, which is labelled Ma’amite, to the Richmond retailer. A date at the High Court in Christchurch between Rob and Sanitarium never eventuated with the two parties agreeing that the spread could be sold if the labels with the name Marmite were covered up. The announcement came just days after Sanitarium confirmed its own Marmite will go back on sale in March after the Christchurch plant was forced to shut down because of earthquake damage suffered in September 2011. When contacted by Waimea Weekly to get his reaction to the news he will finally be able to stock the Ma’amite, Bob reiterated his opinion that Sanitarium are bullies and that the English version was very different to what was produced by Sanitarium, which is why he continued to sell them until stock ran out. “What was the point in the first place? They’ve shot themselves in the foot and just looked a bit stupid,” he says. Last April, Sanitarium representatives walked into English Bob’s Emporium and demanded

It also demanded the phone numbers of every customer that bought the products. But Sanitarium never followed up its threats and he continued to stock both items until they were stopped at the port in Lyttleton. “I just got on with my business. I’m not relieved. I’m happy. But I wasn’t worried about it anyway. We’re not here to put them out of business, we’re here to sell English products to English people.” Bob says the local community had been really supportive during the 10-month ordeal. “People I didn’t even know came in and said they had read about it”

A&P Show a success

More than 800 people spent a day soaking up the different events on offer at the annual Murchison A&P show on Saturday. From wood chopping, cowboy demonstrations, terrier racing, duck herding, show jumping and sheep shearing, the Murchison A&P Show had something for everyone says organiser Sue Cooper. “The whole day went very well, it was really successful. We had good crowds, some great displays and a lot of entertainment throughout the day.” Sue says she received positive feedAndrew Taplin and Bradley Thomas, both 10, trying out back from not only spectators but the range of John Deere equipment on display at the Murjudges who took part in the differchison A&P Show.

cause there was silver on the side of the road, their lights will be gone with bits of their bumper missing please phone Simon on 544 1859.” Fred says the police had already driven around the Richmond area over the weekend to see if they could spot a car that matched the description.

Fred Gordon’s car could be written off after it was crashed into while parked on Hill St over the weekend.

Stock prices drop Phillip Rollo

The weather is fine but stock prices are dropping, says the president of Federated Farmers Nelson. Gavin O’Donnell says while the region has been blessed with sunshine throughout the summer months, the weather has only resulted in a “traditional” season for local farmers who are used to the fine spells at this time of the year. At the same time that the far north is experiencing extremely dry conditions, the most concerning factor across Nelson-Tasman has been a 30 per cent reduction in lamb prices after what was a record high year in 2012. “The weather certainly hasn’t had the same impact as it has in the north of the North Island in the East Coast regions,” he says. “The prices paid last year [for stock] were probably higher than they should have been so all the major meat processing companies all made substantial losses.” Gavin labelled last season as “one of the best we ever had” because of good rainfall, good levels of feed and historically high stock prices – despite urban areas of the region suffering from flooding in December. “There is quite a change this year. The indications are that some farmers might be struggling. Pressure will be on budgets there is no doubt about it.” But PGG Wrightson livestock manager Peter Taylor says the dry weather could start affecting the Nelson-Tasman area and that it was the main reason for the downturn in sheep prices. “The freezing works prices are substantially lower,” he says. “Last year farmers were getting $130 for lamb and this year they’re getting $70 for them. If they had got $100 each year they’d

be a hell of a lot better off.” Dry weather can affect the amount of green grass, which is used as animal feed, and also affects its quality, says Gavin. “It’s very difficult for the stock to actually take in enough energy when the quality of the feed isn’t as good.” Gavin says the end result of extremely dry conditions is lower stock numbers the following spring. At the current stage of the season, sheep and beef farmers are focussing on decreasing stock numbers and retaining just the breading stock. Dairy farmers, on the other hand, are focussing on maintaining milk production for as long as possible, without compromising cow conditions.

Councillor enters race to be mayor

A current Tasman District councillor will run for mayor in this year’s local body election and says he wants to ensure that the TDC focuses its spending on key services. Kit Maling, whose late father Rob was mayor of Richmond in the 1980s, says he learnt a lot growing up in a household where local body politics were frequently debated and was keen to follow his father’s legacy and lead the Tasman District Council. In a press release sent out yesterday, Kit highlighted four key issues he would address if elected mayor. Those include focus on service, council debt and projected debt, affordability of rates and looking after the environment. “The council exists to serve the ratepayers and people of Tasman - not the other way around. I want to lead an enabling and customer friendly council,” he says. “Tasman District Council currently has debt of more than $150 million. That debt is projected to rise to $300 million in the current 10 year plan. This is not affordable, sustainable or prudent. If, and when, interest rates rise this will place an unacceptable burden on rate payers.” Kit says rates in Tasman are high by national standards and with a large population of retired residents and people on fixed incomes, the increases are “crippling”. “Council needs to focus on core services, get its debt under control and focus on delivering the right things to make this

Current mayor Richard Kempthorne confirmed he will stand again and Richmond man Maxwell Clark, a Lower Queen St resident involved in the rates rise issue, says he will also stand.

Record year for fair Dovedale celebrated its biggest ever community fair on Sunday, with over 3000 people enjoying the atmosphere throughout the day that started as a car boot market. The event was a showcasing of local product with 60 stallholders featuring arts, crafts, clothing, plants, and refreshments and featured piglets, puppies, possums, gumboot throwing, a vintage wedding display and a sheep herding demonstration, making it a truly country fair.


Co-organiser Liam Ryan says each year the organisers try to keep it “as close as we can get to a real country fair” and says the purpose was a mixture between grassroots fundraising for the Dovedale choir and school PTA and a fun day out for the community. “The Dovedale community has a very strong spirit, it is nice once a year to get together and celebrate. The fair is the glue that holds our great community together.”

Wednesday February 6: People affected by the forest gate key changes conducted by Action Forest Management now have another option for recreational riding. A Kaimanawa horse sanctuary in the Lee Valley has opened its forest solely for horse riders, giving access to over 300 acres of property. The forest is available to use for all people with their own horse and features swimming holes, a musterers hut available for overnight stays, guided tours and will soon be home to a cross country course. The fee to use the sanctuary is $10 per day or $30 for a month. Contact Olivia for more information on 03 9700206 or 0211557876. Wednesday February 6: More than 450 people took advantage of the offer of a free breakfast when they took part in Nelson’s annual Go By Bike Day last week. Cyclists from all over the Nelson Tasman region called into their local cycle shop on their way to work for free food and spot prizes as a reward for getting out on their bikes. Wednesday February 6: The Tug of Peace fundraiser held in Nelson saw $1500 raised for the Nelson Regional Hospice Trust. Over 100 people took part in the event from 12 different businesses throughout the region. Wednesday January 16: Habitat for Humanity’s Rob Silcock received over 30 phone calls from readers who saw his call for more volunteers in the Waimea Weekly. Following the enquiries Rob picked up another three local volunteers to join a group of New Zealander’s heading over to help build homes in Cambodia. Of the team heading over, 20 of them are from the Nelson region. The team leaves New Zealand for Cambodia on Saturday March 30.

Victorian market to coincide with hall’s 125th birthday If there was a town crier of Redwood Valley, he would be busy over the next few weeks promoting the upcoming Victorian Market to shoppers, market traders and musicians who enjoy dressing up in the fashions of 100 years ago. The monthly Redwood Valley Country Market is hosting the specially themed market to coincide with the 125th celebrations of the Redwood Valley Hall being held on Saturday March 9. Already, there has been a lot of interest from stallholders from around the region who are prepared to theme their market stall

and dress in period costume for the day. Coordinator, Jacqui Pestell, says that similar markets are popular in the United Kingdom, although this would be one of the first in Nelson. “We really want to inject some authentic historic flavour to this market and so we are calling out to local musicians who play old style instruments to come and busk. A good old-fashioned puppet show would be great and even some budding young actors to act as pickpockets.” For more information on stall availability and entertainment, contact Jacqui on 544 2833.

Poor parking at hospital: Nelson hospital parking... or lack of. I always forget that I need to include the time it takes to find a park before my appointment time, therefore I am always rushed to make my appointment. Emily Sarah Walker. Motorbikes at Kart track: Great to see motor cycles training at the kart track. Many years ago the kart racers allowed us to have bucket bike racing there instead of on the streets. But it was short lived as a new resident to the area complained of noise one day a month, the council said there was no consent for bikes so it got canned. Is there now a consent for bikes on the track and can they go racing again? Trevor Kemp. Speed drop on Queen St: Bad idea the traffic in Oxford St will increase 100 per cent. Not good when there’s a school, playground and fire station in the street. Terry Beach. With the speed bumps/crossings it’s hard to get above 30 or 40kph anyway so why the need to waste money changing it?

Crazy waste when could be better spent encouraging more exposure to the cycle way instead of it totally bypassing Richmond! Miles Of Food Cafe and Tapas Bar. Close Queen St and have a permanent market like in Adelaide. Additional alfresco dinning, coffee etc. Make Richmond a destination. Create a one way system up Oxford St and down McGlashin Ave, that would sort out the nightmare on McGlashin Ave at the same time. Dave Trigg. Put it 30km an hour and take those stupid courtesy crossings out and replace them with pedestrian crossings. Simon Scowen. Opera in the Park: Loved, loved, loved Opera in the Park. Great show. (Via text). It was fabulous. The venue is magic. The artists incredible, Wellington Orchestra supreme and the weather stunning. I loved it and so too did the friends with me. Mary Saxon. Awesome weather, primo music, the orchestra was amazing! I loved it, even the kids loved it. Up

Gr wing Things MURCHISON

With Robyn Hollis

What a great start we have had to February weather wise… some rain, many lovely sunny days and pretty high temperatures so far. This all combines to keep our gardens blooming and producing at a rapid rate. I popped down to Christchurch over the weekend to have a “Nana fix” and catch up on proceedings family-wise. It was lovely and very hot – great for a stroll (I should amend that as Benjamin is now running everywhere…..!) in the beautiful Botanic Gardens and the ducks are now no longer just to be looked at and fed, they are also great fun to chase. The facilities provided in these gardens are just excellent for families with two large playgrounds and the super paddling pools. It was a really lovely morning. When I left we were down to three large tomatoes in a bowl as I had made soup and some spaghetti sauce from the lovely Capri tomatoes, so I thought I would be fairly safe to take off. Came home to three large bowls of tomatoes and 8-9 zucchinis… I had only been gone 48 hours. Guess what will be happening today. Last season I spoke about the Capri tomato seed that I had been given to me by Vince who grows tomatoes in the Wood area,

Tim from Nelmac really high up in our huge old Albizia julibrissin. and I promised an update on the growing of this meaty, pink red tomato. It has been amazing! Strong plants, hardly an insect, no dieback or rust and heaps of fruit. The one plant that I had which had been grafted onto a stock to make it more resistant to pests and diseases has also been a real success with heaps of fruit and very healthy growth. Beryls’ tomatoes are also producing well so lots of slow roasting coming up. The Capris are a lovely fleshy, low acid tomato which is really superb in Italian sauces and soups. I am pleased to say that all the seedlings planted out earlier this month are doing well so the “stall at the gate” could well be happening soon. It is lovely to be able to give neighbours

and family the odd basket of fresh veges to assist with the budget also. I have been asked by a reader to give the recipe for slow roasted tomatoes again so here it is. SLOW ROASTED TOMATOES: Put 16 or so tomatoes into a large baking pan in a single layer. Add 6-8 cloves of peeled garlic (to taste) A sprinkle of sugar (about a dessertspoon) Good grind of black pepper and a sprinkle of sea salt Drizzle with a good quality olive oil and add a good slurp of balsamic vinegar. Scatter over some fresh basil leaves and put all in the oven at approx 120 degrees, uncovered, for about four hours. The tomatoes should be very soft and the juices will have collected in the bottom of the pan. I then pop them into plastic containers and freeze them. This makes up the base for all my soups, spaghetti sauces etc right over the winter and the flavour is very intense. All you do is thaw them out and blitz in a food processor. I do this instead of bottling and feel that flavour is better and it is much less messy to do, just lazy really!!

they will scoff many of the caterpillars and beetles that make your vegetables home. • Sow spinach where your beans were growing – it appreciates the nitrogen that legumes leave behind. • Plant rosemary in a corner of the vege patch as it deters white butterflies. They also do not like sage thyme or mint. I have a thriving rosemary bush near my broccoli and cabbage plants and so far I have hardly seen a white butterfly or any eggs but Derris Dust is always an alternative. • Large zucchinis can always go in the compost bin if you are really over run with them. Give away and preserve what you can – recipe next week… but the rest will benefit the soil next season. The photo this week is Tim from Nelmac really high up in our huge old Albizia julibrissin. The cicadas had done some major damage over the years to one large branch of this dear old tree and we did not want to have any chance of this damage setting up a rot in the rest of the trunk, so down it came. Tim and Robbie did an excellent job and also cut up the limb into firewood size pieces. The health of the tree overall is very good so that was great news, and the way they took out the limb has not detracted from the overall shape. It really does pay to get expert knowledge when cutting into old trees, this one is over 37 years old which is a good age for a silk tree so I am told. Hopefully we will have its shade and lovely blossoms, for a good many years yet. Keep watering, harvesting, and enjoying the best of the season in your garden and I hope you had a very happy Valentine’s Day. Thank goodness there was a rose still looking good on my Dublin Bay!!

Hope you enjoyed your holidays I sure did. Here’s a pic of me with a really neat piece of driftwood I found. I knew it was special ‘cause over 700 people including a nice policeman on Kaiteriteri beach were waving frantically at me when this photo was being taken.

Nick Appelman with his custom ‘54 Behemoth at the Nelson Car Show. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

New venue, same result Nick Appelman’s custom ’54 Behemoth is hard to miss and for the second year running it has taken out the Nelson Car Show’s top prize. The Spring Grove man describes custom cars as “doing what the factory should have done with it”. “You come together with a plan, which I drew up in 1993 and it’s finally at that stage now. It rides as good as a new car,” he says. Bought as a four-door sedan in the 80s, Nick decided he wanted a convertible instead. Hundreds of hours later and he can drive something that draws a lot of attention. “During the final stages I was working 16 hours a week on it, and that was on top of my full-time job. I take it out every weekend. The front is covered in stone chips but it’s made to be driven, not to be hidden.”

Although the result was the same, the venue was different for 2013 with the Nelson Car Show moving to the Tahuna Holiday Park after being based near the World of Wearable Art and Classic Car Museum. Steve Steele, who is on the organising committee for the Nelson Car Show, says he was inundated with text messages congratulating the committee on the successful event. “I had 64 text messages from people saying how great the event was and just a big thank you. I haven’t checked the emails yet but it was great,” he says. Steve says he was due to meet with the manager of the Tahuna Holiday Park today to confirm the site for future events. He says the best thing about it was the “relaxed atmosphere” and the room for expansion.

Anyway, back at work now and offering our best deal ever;

Welcome to our February Newsletter, Hope you all had a restful holiday and are ready for another busy and hopefully successful year. Our Association would like to thank Brightwater School for their support in allowing us to have our meetings in the Staffroom there each month, it is a great facility. Please support the School on 24 February when they will be holding their Gala and Auction Day. It will be a great event to come along to. We are grateful to Hi Reach who once again lent us a cherry picker to take down our Christmas lights from the Village Green. Also thanks to Nathan, John and Sally who were there to help. We do appreciate your time and effort. We were sad to find that someone had helped themselves to one set of lights, we don’t expect this sort of thing to happen in Brightwater. We would love to have them back – no questions asked. Some of the other lights were broken by the very strong winds in January and it is sad that we will have to replace those let alone having to replace stolen ones as well. In the holidays I took a visitor to have a look at the mural that we finished last year only to find that it had been damaged and that we will have to get some repairs made. If you know anything about this or saw anyone doing this, please let us know. It has not even been 12 months since the mural was

completed. A lot of time and effort was put in to the mural and we need our community to respect that. On a happier note, we would like to say how wonderful the pots and baskets look at the shops. They are stunning at the moment and we would like to thank Sally for setting up the baskets and thanks to those who keep them watered – a great job. Have a great month. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 5 March at the Brightwater School Staffroom at 7.30pm. Everyone is welcome. See you there. Your Community Association Inc. Brightwater School 125 Year Reunion We look forward to seeing you all at the reunion to celebrate 125 years at Brightwater School. Brightwater School first opened its doors in 1888 as a Boys’ School. The Brightwater Girls’ School was situated where the Brightwater Hall stands now. On closure of the Brightwater Girls’ School at the end of 1889 the two schools combined to form a mixed school on the present site. Brightwater School has seen many changes over the last 125 years. Many examples of these will be on display for you to relive these wonderful memories with old school mates and teachers. We welcome you to share in the celebrations of the school’s 125 reunion and hope you take this opportunity to join us in March.

Last year’s Waimea Old Boys centre James Lowe takes on the defence during a game last seaon. As another rugby season kicks off for Waimea Old Boys, all eyes will be on bringing home the silverware after a great season and awesome effort throughout the divisions last year. The women’s team continued their winning streak with a well deserved win over Stoke in the final, toughing out some challenging conditions to bring home the trophy for the third year in a row. Kane Hart will be taking over as coach this year and a strong core remain from last year’s tesam so things are already looking good for our defending champions. The first division team is looking promising too with coaches Mark Milne and Dion Mytton taking the team through the season again this year. While last year’s captain Sam Prattley has left for Auckland and joined the Highlanders wider training circuit, the team will have a solid core of players back from previous years. Former Waimea Old Boys first division captain Ben Coman is back from leading Buller to a huge win in last year’s Lochore Cup and is eager to put the red and white jersey on.

The men’s second division team will be backed up by coaches Wayne Bateman and Dennis Amy this year and the team is expecting a lot of the players in last year’s team to line up for the red and whites again in 2013. For the first time in 10 years Waimea will welcome a club captain into the club. Zane Beloe has taken on the role, liasing between coaches, players and parents to provide a positive environment for everyone to enjoy and making it easy for kids and seniors to get out on the field and play rugby. Waimea Old Boy’s junior wing is one of the biggest JAB clubs in Nelson, with teams for players from under 6 years old to under 14. The club pride themselves on providing a great atmosphere for kids to get out on the field and have some fun, fostering young rugby stars and setting them up for future success. The club offer the chance for kids to play a great sport, receive top class coaching and enjoy every minute of it in a safe environment. This will be the first season for the new JAB Under 14s division after the idea was proposed last year. Waimea Old Boys will join forces with Waimea

College to create the new age grade giving young players a chance to play for both the club and the school going forward, a great way for kids to stay active within the club before joining college teams later on. JAB coach Jeremy Salton says players will represent both the club and the college on their jersey, wearing the Waimea Old Boys emblem and the Waimea College one too. “We decided to start this team to allow our younger players to keep playing for the club but remain eligible for the college team. This way instead of losing players in the transition from club to college rugby, we’ll be able to retain them.” Encourage your child to play New Zealand’s favourite sport with the Waimea Old Boys, and head down to one of the registration days. Registration for the Under 14’s gets under way on Wednesday Febru-

ary 27 from 6pm to 8pm and the rest of the JAB over March 5-7 at the clubrooms from 5.30pm to 8pm. Even if you don’t play rugby there is a chance to get involved in your community club. Parent involvement is the backbone of the JAB and there’s plenty of opportunity to help out or join in as a supporter throughout the season. Keep an eye out for club quiz nights, these are a new drive for the senior division. These are a chance to not only fundraise but an opportunity to do a bit of team building too. There is a quiz night scheduled for April so make sure you go along to support the club. With the season kicking off in late March, head down to the Waimea Old Boys clubrooms and find out about joining or supporting the teams made up of kids, women and men from our community.

Top three finish for Burson

Phillip Rollo

The 3NZ sticker will remain in Nelson for another year with Ian Burson finishing third place at the New Zealand Super Saloon Championship, although last year's podium placer Mark Carey crashed and finished well outside the top ten. Ian, who went into the final race on Saturday night at Woodford Glen Speedway with a top two finish out of his reach, finished behind Christchurch duo Mark Osborne and Richie Taylor to complete a South Island trifector. While the current South Island champion admits he was chasing 1NZ, he was pleased to finally reach the top three, especially after last year's performance at home when his race was ended by a puncture. "1NZ would have been great but any of those three numbers is a big achievement and to be third, well I'm just astounded really," he says. "To be third place behind those other Ian Burson is the new 3NZ after finishing inside the top three at the New Zealand Super Saloon Champion at Woodford two [is an impressive feat]. The plan was to get 1NZ in the South Island one way or another but Glen Speedway over the weekend. Photo: Phillip Rollo. to get 2NZ and 3NZ as well was extra special." Ian had a near perfect start to the event, finishing INFORMATION AFTERNOON top of his heat courtesy of two first placings and for potential homeowners through Habitat Sunday 3 March at 2pm a fourth.

Everyone had big expectations because we had run so well in Christchurch. We wanted the 1NZ but it just wasn't our weekend. The other Kevin Cross 2/2 guys beat us hands down fair and square."

Three medals for Nelson Three Nelson runners have picked up medals at the New Zealand Junior 3000m Championship held at the Saxton Field athletics track on Saturday night, making the most of small fields dominated by local runners. In a meet that also doubled as the Harold Nelson Classic, Mike Lowe and Jess Martin managed to pick up silver medals in their respective races with Jeff Lautenslager coming home in third place in the men’s race to secure bronze. Mike has a reputation of picking up second placings at national events and despite holding the lead going into the final lap, he was outsprinted by Waikato’s Jacob Priddy, in the first ever national track and field event to be held in Nelson. Mike and Jeff, who both finished the race in personal best times of 8 minutes 34.55 seconds and 8 minutes 41.52 seconds respectively, sat comfortably behind the race leader for the first five laps

SPEEDWAY Still Nelson’s Best Entertainment

Cardiac Club provides health rewards and fun A small group of cardiac patients are thrilled with the results of a new exercise class being run at Richmond Physiotherapy Cardiac Club. Dave says in the seven weeks he has been attending he is noticing some significant improvements in his ability to walk longer distances and is again able to keep up with his wife Anne as they walk their dog. Dave suffered a heart attack last year and had a stent inserted in one of his heart arteries to allow better blood flow to his heart. With the help of medication he is back doing his normal activities and is again confident to exercise harder. He says it has really helped to have exercise instruction from the physiotherapist and he felt he was in safe hands if anything went wrong. Dave was walking regularly following his discharge from hospital but says until he started doing the specific strengthening exercises at the Cardiac Club, he was only progressing very slowly. Janice says she was very nerv-

ous when she first attended the group as she had no idea what to expect, but she rapidly lost her nervousness when she realised it was a very supportive, fun place to be and she is pleased with the improvement she is noticing in her daily activities as a result of the regular exercise. Cardiac Clubs are Affiliated to the National Heart Foundation of NZ and provide a supportive and social outlet for people who may have risk factors for heart problems, are suffering from angina or high cholesterol, or have had a heart attack or heart surgery. Clubs are even helpful for the partners or family members as heart disease really is a family concern. Nelson Bays Primary Health has recently developed a community cardiac rehabilitation programme for patients who are discharged from hospital and following on from that, Cardiac Clubs play an important part in returning to ‘normality’. Part of the Cardiac Clubs’ mandate is

while the fourth placed Thomas Andersen had a strong race before falling behind the front three in the dying stages. Athletics Nelson runners Josh Barry, Hugo Lawrence, Allister Meffan and Sam Mackay-Wright were the next across the line beating Hill City’s Joe Beamish who was the final competitor. Jess started the women’s race, which was held prior to the men’s event, in second place behind Audrey Gregan of Auckland City and continued that formation for the entire distance to finish in a time of 10 minutes 3.89 seconds, more than ten seconds behind the winner. Hamilton City Hawks runner Olivia Ritchie was third. Notable performances in the meet’s other events included Andrew Kennedy running 10.86 seconds to win the senior men’s 100m, Hannah Shepherd winning the women’s sprint double while thrower Dale Pritchard continued his fine season.

to provide regular exercise, ongoing education and enjoyment so people are more motivated to continue developing healthy habits. Richmond Physiotherapy Centre, in the new Lower Queen Street Health Centre, has a well equipped rehab gym, and is in a great position to provide a Cardiac Club. “Physiotherapists are well placed to provide exercise prescription for cardiac patients as our medical training, along with the support from Nelson Bays Primary Health and the Heart Foundation ensures we can provide the most up-to-date options. We can tailor our programme to each individual and give guidance and reassurance so people feel confident to increase their exercise levels and reap the benefits that exercise provides. Most importantly, we all have fun while we work so it doesn’t feel like work. It’s the fun and social atmosphere that keeps people coming back for more,” says Helen Macdonald, Physiotherapist.

Roller team on the hunt for new players Sinead Ogilvie

Nelsons own roller derby team are kicking off another season of play and are on the hunt for new players and helpers. The Sirens of Smash are issuing a call out for ‘fresh meat’ and offering a course that they say is a sure fire way to get new recruits ready for action. Team spokeswoman Tara Forde says after two years of operating as the only roller derby team in the region, it’s time to get together another bunch of keen chicks and form a second team. Tara says the 32 week course is a great way for interested local women to give roller derby a try and pick up the rules of the sport. “It’s an awesome way to get fit, learn to skate and have a great

time with a new group of friends.” Tara encourages anybody to give it a go and says you don’t have to be an expert skater to join the team. “A lot of the current members hadn’t picked up their skates since they were kids, it’s easy to learn and heaps of fun.” The team are also seeking referees and non-skating officials to join them. The beginners classes will start towards March 11 and will be at the Tahunanui Skate Rink once a week, on a week night. Those interested in joining as a player, referee or as a non-skating official can email shamelessshenani or see further information on or the Facebook page www.facebook. com/Sirens.of.smash.

We currently have a role available for a mechanical fitter. Predominately working in the fuel industry you will need to have proven mechanical experience with an eye for detail. The role requires regular “out of town” travel and therefore you will need to be self-managing with the ability to manage subcontractors at times. Your approach to HSE must be exemplary and focused to provide quality work to our clients. While fuel experience is not essential it would be desirable, as skills from similar trades can be easily transferred into the cutting edge requirements of the fuel industry.

The effect of the temporary reservation will be to prevent access to that section of river by all users, in the interests of safety. No restrictions on use of the river will be in place between 4.00 pm on any Friday and 5.30 am on the subsequent Monday during this period.
