Missing money still not found

Santa drops in on Richmond Santa Claus stayed around and spoke to children after the Pak’n’Save Santa Parade, receiving an onslaught of requests for ponies and dolls houses. His appearance was the highlight for all of the children that attended Sunday’s parade. wheelchairs mobility scooters walkers/canes electric bed/hoists lift assist chairs bathroom solutions incontinence products daily living aids/products

Organiser Kim Quint, from Richmond Unlimited, says this year’s parade showcased what Richmond was all about. More community groups and truly local businesses were involved this year, which she says was the event’s highlight. “We were so blessed with having such a fine day especially

with rain before and after,” she says. “The quality of the floats has definitely improved. People have put a lot of time and effort into what they presented. It was just such a fun, family atmosphere.” The Grace Church won the best float award, taking home an $800 Pak’n’Save voucher.

Around $100,000 in levy payments are unaccounted for say residents of Waimea Village and they’re preparing for a court battle with the owners of the village, Michael and Carolyn Wright, to find out where it is. Residents committee chair Jerry Rowland says a 2011 decision by an anonymous arbitrator required a percentage of the lease to go to a repair and maintenance fund, which should by now have around $100,000 in it. As of June this year the committee say they were told the money is not there and Michael Wright refuses to tell them where it is. TDC councillor Kit Maling was at the meeting and was firmly on the side of the residents. He told the Waimea Weekly that the residents have valid concerns, chief among them is the missing money in the repair and replacement fund. “They’ve paid approximately $100,000 into it and they don’t know where that is. That’s the biggest concern. We can’t say he’s stolen it, but there are certainly some questions to be answered.”

Waimea Weekly asked Michael if the money was in the repair and maintenance fund as required by the arbitrator. He declined to comment. Residents of Waimea Village have decided to prepare a war chest for their “certain” legal battle with the owners of the village as disputes over lease payments get set to stretch into a third year. Last week a new arbitrator released his decision on the levy increase for 2012, raising the monthly fees from $125 to $182.75. Michael and Carolyn had wanted $284. It is the second year in a row an arbitrator has stepped into the dispute, with the fees rising from $80 to $125 last year. Michael has said previously that he would continue to take residents to arbitration every year until he got the amount he wanted. But on Monday he told Waimea Weekly that the levy fees for 2013 would be unlikely to rise but “there are other mechanisms

“I used to when the kids were at primary school. I’m not surprised that they’re making that much money, especially if they’re being well supported.”

“I personally don’t attend the galas. But I think it’s great that they get the support that they do.”

“I haven’t been to one this year but it can only be a good thing to see school’s raising that sort of money themselves.”

in place in the lease for the recovery of excess costs”. He would not elaborate. But the residents are refusing to pay more than the $125 per month they do currently, citing the missing money and a belief that the Wrights are lying to them about the figure needed to run the village. At the meeting at the village hall on Sunday afternoon an over capacity crowd from the 172 properties, many having to stand outside, told the village’s residents committee they would pay no more. It was later found out that the Wrights had a recording of the meeting. Instead, the decision to raise money – from supporters outside the village – and fight the Wrights in court was met with cheers and clapping. Residents pay the levy on top of owning their own home and paying normal council rates. The arbitrator’s decision dates back to January 1 this year, meaning every resident is required to pay the Wrights $635, due ten days before Christmas and then up their levy payments from December 1. But the residents committee lawyer Warwick Heal has

advised the residents not to pay it to the Wrights, according to Jerry. “Warwick’s deepest concern is with the repairs and replacement fund. Right now there should be about $100,000 in that account,” he told the residents. “We can’t prove where [the money] is, we don’t know where it is. It’s gone into Michael and Carolyn’s bank account, there’s nothing to stop them for using it for other purposes. Our lawyer has made it clear to us that he’s recommending that we establish a separate bank account and the difference between the $125 you’re now paying and the $182.75 they want, take the difference and put it in this separate account for just repairs and maintenance.” But other residents disagreed and said they shouldn’t pay any more than they do now. Nelson Weekly understands it is quite common practice in this situation for the repair and maintenance fund to belong to the venue as opposed to the landlord and the funds stay with the venue if sold. That is not the case with Waimea Village. Jerry said the residents were up for the fight. “It might be their business, but damn it, it’s our home.”

Bikes boost Brightwater Phillip Rollo

at the amount of cyclists that have actually used it, despite only having small segments of the trail completed. When the full loop is finished, Kevin believes there will be more cyclists from out-of-town coming through Brightwater. He would be “amazed” if other townships such as Mapua and Wakefield did not benefit once the trail was completed and believed it was a good time for businesses to embrace it. “Businesses should think about how they can meet the requirements on the trail,” he says. Ross Hurley of the Brightwater Motor Inn says his business was hoping to benefit when the loop was completed because it offered accommodation. However, that would be further down the line as it is used predominately by locals at the moment.

Brightwater retailers are praising the Great Taste Cycle Trail, saying it has boosted business in the region, despite being only partially completed. Sprig & Fern Brightwater co-owner Kevin Gear says his business has had to “beef up” their staff and has altered trading hours to cope with the new demand from cyclists on the weekend. He says staff were actively handing out flyers to people on weekends, hoping to make the most of the town’s new visitors. “On Saturdays and Sundays there are definitely a large number of people in the Brightwater area just because they’ve been on the cycle trail,” says Kevin. “We already had bike stands but we probably need more.” Rose Timpson, who is the manager of Brightwater’s HQ cafe and bar, says turnover has increased directly because of the cycle trail. She says a lot of customers use it as a “destination” and cycle all of the way from Nelson for a coffee and a bite to eat. “It is very much weather dependent but going on coffees we could probably do 250 to 300 in one weekend,” she says. Initially, the owners of HQ had not taken the cycle trail’s potential into consideration when opening on the site last year. Kevin expected his business to HQ manager Rose Timpson with chef Lisa Johnston and asbenefit but says he is surprised sistant manager Holly Ewers. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Public meeting to clear the air Phillip Rollo

Despite knocking on the doors of the worst air polluters earlier this year, council may take a “tougher stance” to stop noncompliant wood burners being used in Richmond. Tasman District Council has invited all Richmond users of non-compliant wood burners to attend a public meeting at Club Waimea on Tuesday November 27. The meeting will begin at 7:30pm and will remind the residents of the consequences of continuing poor air quality – both in terms

of people’s health and amenity in relation to national regulations. The council will also explain the measures they will take if the current trend continues. The smoke problem arises from two main things – use of old non compliant wood burners and poor operation of wood burners. The council adopted an air quality strategy when monitoring in the early 2000s showed “very high levels” of wintertime pollution, says TDC communications manager Christ Choat. “The implications relate not just to council having to comply

with the national regulations for air quality, but also because poor air quality has adverse effects on people’s health, as well as causing nuisance for people having to cope with smoky air.” In 2007, the council introduced new wood burner rules to meet national regulations. The national regulations require no more than three exceedances by 2016 and states that the average 24 hour air quality for PM10 does not exceed 50ug/m3 – anything more than this is an “exceedance”. PM10 is a measure of small air particles less than 10microns in size. It is this size

particle which gets into people’s lungs and contributes to a range of adverse health impacts. While the number of exeedances recorded from the monitoring site in Oxford St has declined since tests began in 2000, the figures have begun to rise in recent years. The number of exceedances has gone from seven in 2010 to 16 in 2012. This has sparked council to meet with the residents involved “Most importantly there needs to be an understanding that while wood burners are the problem, wood burner owners are the solution.”

Night market set to WOW

St Paul’s Catholic School’s night market organisers Jodie Keenan and Heather Lackner set up for Thursday’s event. Photo: Phillip Rollo.


A unique night market held at the World of Wearable Arts Museum will be held for the second year in a row this Thursday night. Tickets cost $10 and include entry through the World of Wearable Art and Classic Cars exhibits. There will be more than 30 stalls selling various items to purchase for Christmas presents plus live music from local band the Collectors. Organiser Heather Lackner says the idea came about because fundraising was becoming increasingly difficult and St Paul’s Catholic School wanted to offer a point of difference. “As mothers we always found it difficult getting to markets with children and we thought it would be great to have a night

market indoors where you can come and relax, have a glass of wine and wander around,” she says. Because of its timing, the market is also a good opportunity to do some Christmas shopping, says Heather. All of the money raised will go towards building a new multi-purpose centre at St Paul’s Catholic School. Last year’s market raised around $4500. However, the school’s principal John Dorman was hoping that in a few years’ time it could reach the same potential as other school fairs and raise around $20,000. The Night Market at WOW begins at 6:30pm and will run until around 9:30pm.

Bridget Budget answers your questions

Q: My children demand certain

prepackaged foods for their school lunches, because apparently “everyone has them”. Their school lunches are costing me over $30 week. How can I convince them to eat sandwiches? A: As in any social situation, children and adults can get caught up with doing what everyone else does. In this case this choice may be expensive and unhealthy. You are the adult; therefore you are in control of what food you provide for your children. Here are some tips for healthy inexpensive lunches:  Regularly buy ingredients for healthy lunches so there is always food available to prepare.  Help each child write lists of their favourite healthy food  Encourage your children to help you prepare their lunches  Teach your children to bake.  If they are tired of sandwiches, try: - Small wraps filled with meat, or cheese and salad. - Baked potatoes stuffed or plain - Boiled eggs - Chopped up veges and a pottle of savoury dip - Cheese on toast or slice of pizza - Corn on the cob - Home-made pop-corn - Dried fruit, seeds and nuts - Home baking Your children’s friends will soon be asking to have some their lunches!

Students get taste of the real world Sinead Ogilvie

More than 180 Year 10 students from Waimea College will have spent the day in real life workplaces after today. From cafes, to electricians, cycle shops to builders, local businesses have opened the doors to students in a bid to show them what being on the job is all about. The Work Watch programme run by Waimea College sees Year 10 students undertake work placement for a day in a business of their choice, an opportunity which careers advisor Lyn Guilliard says is a chance to open the eyes and minds of students to what the workforce entails. While some students have an idea of their dream job, and others will have no clue what they would like to do as a career, Lyn says having open discussions at home to discover their interests is part of the idea, so that students who don’t have any career or study plans will begin to have those conversations with their families. Students are left to their own devices to come up with a career they are interested in, and work with

The New Zealand Association of Orthodontists last week announced that the Wish for a Smile Trust will take applications from children aged between 11 and 18 years old, helping ease the financial burden of those in need of urgent orthodontic work.

Sonia Malpas of Nelson Orthodontics, the only clinic in the Top of the South participating in the initiative, says this will be hugely beneficial for children that might be teased at school. “The ones whose life might be really affected and could lead to other problems, the real serious cases, they’re the ones that will benefit,” she says. “ Sonia says orthodontic treatment has become significantly more popular in recent years because dentists in this era

do “everything they can” to save a tooth. In previous generations, teeth were taken out and replaced with false teeth. Dr Andrew Lush says it is likely to cost families just $800 on top of the 20 hours volunteer work with a community organisation. That money would be paid over 40 weeks and would cover just “ a fraction of the overhead” costs, making the scheme very worthwhile. To apply, visit http://www.orthodontists.

Stores get behind Shop ‘n’ Win

Bluebell Florist’s Kate Bradley accepts an entry into Shop ‘n’ Win.

The race to win $5000 cash for Christmas has begun with more than 100 businesses getting behind Shop ‘n’ Win. Shop ‘n’ Win gives one lucky Richmond shopper the chance to win $5000 for Christmas and all they have to do is buy something from one of the participating stores. Bluebell Florist on Queen St has participated in the competition before and is already benefiting from being a part of the 2012 edition. Florist Amy Bryson says customers have been quick to fill out the forms, which will also increase her store’s chances of winning the $2000 for the business that the winning customer visited. “We’re trying to get everyone that buys something to enter it. I do think because we have the poster on our sign that people are shopping with us purely because of the competition.” Shop ‘n’ Win is run by the Waimea Weekly and all of the participating businesses. This is the sixth year that the competition has run.

Sergeant Mal Drummond, officer in charge of community policing for Nelson Bays says the patrol are an important part of Richmond’s community reassurance that their town is safe and well looked after. “They really are an extra pair of eyes and ears at high risk times, and they certainly assist us by passing on information. Their presence provides a preventative element and acts as a

deterrent to unwanted activities.” The group of volunteers will hold a stall and silent auction at the A&P Show this weekend. With great items generously donated by the community such as Pure Essentials Hot Stone Massage, Rob Roys vouchers, a pallet of pavers from Firths, wheel alignments and many more items up for grabs. The team are easily recognised in their hi-vis jackets, and information and forms will be available for those who would like to join the volunteer patrol.


A group of keen volunteers are the extra eyes and ears of the Richmond Police, keeping our community safe from harm, and their presence on our streets has made all the difference. Taking ownership of our region are a group of 30 volunteers who spend their Friday and Saturday nights out on patrol, sharing a close relationship with our police, council and community to keep the streets clear of unwanted crime. Coordinator Mike Gill says over the last five years the community has seen a definite drop in the levels of crime occurring in the wee hours of the weekend. He says while some of this reduction can be credited to the community patrol, it’s also showing the great support that Richmond shows each other in deterring night life crime in the area. Mike says the group decided to form back in 2008 as a way of giving back to the community, after local people voiced their frustrations at weekend vandalism, graffiti and general nuisance activities that were occurring. They work with the NZ Police, schools, families and local businesses to patrol known trouble spots. “We want the people of our town to feel

Close competition for Waimea It was all systems go last weekend when the Snooker section members hosted the biannual visit from their counterparts from Wellington, the Upper Hutt Cossie Club. This arrangement has become a major social event on the Snooker section calendar and a

full day of competition on Saturday saw a serious competing side added to the occasion. The Waimea team had a narrow 7 – 5 lead at the lunch break and the locals really got their act together in the afternoon when they won fifteen of the eighteen games to give an overall result of

Waimea 22, Upper Hutt 8. This was the most comprehensive victory by either side in the five years of rivalry and it is a certainty that the Waimea side will be in for a tough time when they travel to Upper Hutt for the tournament in October next year.

Kath Kaveny – Super Liquor Richmond “Laying in the grass with a brandy and dry on a summers day is perfection.

Gr wing Things

With Robyn Hollis

Wow, what a busy time of the year it is for us gardeners. I only just managed to get some time to head away to Garden Marlborough last weekend. I do hope some of you got to see this also. John and I loaded the two Mums into the truck and off we went. Due to a hiccup with my health I did not get to any workshops this year but the lovely day we all had on Sunday more than made up for it. The photo says it all really – lots of colour, people, food, music and of course all things garden, from clothes, to frames, to gloves and tools, plants and more plants, furniture and a huge array of yummy honey products and soaps galore. I also found a new vanilla product and couldn’t resist the beautiful vanilla extract and also a very fragrant vanilla paste. This is made from the pods of the vanilla bean, finely crushed and mixed with oil it is a real flavour burst when using vanilla in cooking. I don’t know about you but the first stop for me is always food. Chris Fortune was making delicious omelettes just inside the gate, so that was the start, followed by some exquisite “pain de chocolat”. This is a light as air croissant type roll with two (or more) sticks of dark sweet chocolate in the centre – just to die for, and this set us up for a most enjoyable 3 hours or so. I had the strength to buy several plants, some lovely cottage perennials, vege plants and the most delightful hybrid clematis called Gypsy Queen. A gorgeous deep purple lady, she will look great climbing

up my wisteria by the deck. Back in the vege garden all is looking fine. The tomatoes are in as are the zucchini, broccoli is nearly harvested and a second lot is underway, beans are up and the lettuces are being cut and given away as I have a few too many. The coriander is bolting so I have cut it back and turned this first pick into coriander pesto. This is very easy to do and is made with oil, pinenuts, parmesan cheese and garlic just as you make the basil pesto. Not one to measure, I simply fill the food processor bowl with packed coriander leaves and stems. Add approx 1 cup of pinenuts, 3-4 cloves of garlic, 1 cup of good grated parmesan cheese and then blitz. Slowly add a good quality olive oil and blend until it is the desired thickness. Add a pinch of Maldon sea salt and a grind of black pepper and you’re done. This keeps in the fridge for several weeks or you can freeze it in containers for later use. Great in spaghetti sauces, in dressings, on bruschetta, in Asian recipes etc. If you plan to put in a second crop of coriander it is a good idea to put it in a shady spot or perhaps grow it in a pot so you can move it under shade as from now on some of the soft herbs will “bolt” (go to seed) as the temperatures start to warm up. Rocket and some of the mesclun salad greens can also succumb to high temperatures, making them bitter and a little tough. They are really best grown in the spring and autumn.


Thisks wee

• Strawberries should be starting to ripen now so protect them with bird netting. Check for any grey mould forming on the fruit (botrytis) and remove this to the rubbish. The spores can infect good fruit if left lying around. Try to keep the fruit and foliage as dry as possible by lifting it onto pea straw and only watering in the morning. • Polyanthus that have finished flowering should be lifted, divided if necessary and replanted in a shady spot for the summer. • Lift tulips when the leaves have yellowed off. Clean off the soil, leaves and roots and store in a netting bag in a cool dry place. A dusting with flowers of sulphur is good. • Roses are now in full swing – they need a feed in November with a good rose fertiliser, also keep deadheading to encourage new blooms and collect any leaves that may have fallen due to black-spot to stop this infection spreading to other plants. See you next time and happy gardening….

gald came to bring us up to date on the cycle trail. At present they are constructing the Brightwater to Wakefield leg of the trail, which will be opened officially early next year. We hope you have all noticed that the hanging baskets are in place again down at the shops. Thanks again to Sally for planting these up and looking after them. The latest version of the Brightwater Heritage Leaflet has been printed and will soon be in some of the local businesses and will be available for a gold coin donation. Brightwater was one of the earliest European settlements on the Waimea Plains. This leaflet has a map and shows where you can find some of the historic buildings in the area. Our next meeting will be held in the Brightwater School Staffroom on 4 December at 7.30pm. Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime enjoy the warm weathWORK er.

Welcome to our November Newsletter, Here it is November already – we have all survived another Guy Fawkes celebration and have heard the fireworks going off around the neighbourhood in the last week or so. News hot off the press – our Association received a letter today informing us that the Tasman District Council have completed the settlement of obtaining the land at 62 Ellis Street, which has become the Brightwater Village Green. We look forward to beginning to plan to make the Village Green a special place for our community. At our meeting this month Rose Biss and Dougald Ley from TDC visited us. Rose came to talk about the Strategic Review of our Community which is under way, and early next year we hope to be able to talk to the wider community about future plans for Brightwater and its community.

Brightwater Scout Group It comes as a shock when you are asked ‘What was it like in the old days’ and you realise your age is beginning to creep up. Many people have had positive input through being involved with the Brightwater Scout group over the years either as a Cub, Scout, Venturer or as a Leader. Some might be tempted to think Scouting has not changed much over the years but if you look at the last month’s Scout meetings, you’d be surprised to see what they have been up to. A radio buildathon held in conjunction with the Nelson Radio Club, saw the Scouts soldering up their own radio complete with an amplifier. There were many smiles as each managed to produce a working radio. Thanks to the NZART Radio Science Education Trust for their sponsorship support for this activity. Then we spent time at the New Gate Company workshop learning engineering skills, including Tig Welding, to produce a four-stand candleholder. Brightwater Scout Group continues to look for ways to encourage and be relevant to the current 7 – 15 year old youth of today. If you would like to know more about Cubs and Scout in Brightwater ring Martin 542 3694.

Brightwater Playcentre The children have been busy this term and making the most of the sunny weather. The plants in our vegetable garden and mini orchard are looking very healthy, and we are looking forward to harvest time.

Upcoming trips include Natureland, Rabbit Island and the Associations Annual Picnic, which is being held at Victory Playcentre. Our Playcentre sessions run from Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 12noon. We are situated at 244 Lord Rutherford Road South, Brightwater, (next to the Spring Grove Drill Hall).

Brightwater School Middle Syndicate students had a fabulous cultural experience visiting Te Awhina Marae. It was a great opportunity for the children and parents to experience the Tikanga (protocols) and Kawa (rules) of the Marae. A huge thank you to Sue Pryde for making this a fun learning experience. Students also enjoyed dressing up in period costume and visiting Bishop School as a part of their school inquiry unit on early Nelson.

Christmas Boxed Up With Christmas just around the corner advertisers are reminding us to buy presents. Living in a culture which has so much stuff this can be a hard task – what to buy someone who has lots? In 1993 a lady in Wales heard about the Romanian orphanages and the terrible conditions the orphans lived in. Wanting to do something for them she filled shoeboxes with toiletries, school supplies, toys, - within 3 years it grew so big Samaritan’s Purse took it over. Since 1993, they have distributed over 90 million shoeboxes to hurting children around the world. A member of the church asked could we possibly fill maybe 10 boxes. People had great fun planning the contents and decorating the boxes. Knowing every item would be treasured. It was a real thrill on the collection day to see 34 shoe boxes which had been prepared with love. As some could not physically participate they gave money to cover cartage. Should we have been surprised that all the costs were met?

From one ladies idea in Wales to another lady in the Brightwater Church many children have been blessed. As they receive a lovingly packed shoe box of gifts, they receive a simple powerful demonstration of God’s unconditional love. Nelson Christian Home Educators Nelson Christian Home Educators Group held a Pet and Hobby Day on Saturday 10 November. A couple of the children who attended the fun filled day have shared their experiences: “On Saturday the tenth of November, our home schooling group had pet and hobby day at Brightwater. We got to make lots of interesting things like miniature scenes, vegetable creations and sand saucers. I got to make an apron for the sewing section and I had to think of something unusual to put a flower arrangement in. I chose a knife block. The things that people had made were really clever and the animals were cool, too. My friend Samara took her pet rats, they are so cute. I had so much fun playing

games there with my friends. I can’t wait for next year.” Abbey Bryan-Gregory 9 years old. “Filled with creative ideas – a handmade boat, a goat-skull with flowers neatly arranged and a trio of sleeping babies iced onto a cupcake – the Brightwater Hall was the perfect venue to host the annual Nelson Christian Home Educators’ Pet & Hobby day. This much-looked forward to event was begun 17 years ago by Alison White in Pigeon Valley, and has been held every year since in various venues ranging from farms, large lawns and church halls. Over 40 children entered exhibits this year in the floral, baking, pets and hobbies sections. Mrs Kim Perks ran the event, enlisting the help of local judges to determine the winners. Certificates and rosettes were awarded to those winning the envied position of 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. As children departed for home, ideas for next year’s creations were being discussed, - a fitting epithet to a successful day.” Jack Blakemore – 13 years old

Kids train with Black Sox

The Black Sox won two exhibition matches and took training sessions for local players during a two-day stopover in Nelson last week. The Nelson Softball Association was the only one in the South Island to host a group of national team players as the Black Sox build up to the ISF Men’s World Softball Championship in Auckland early next year.

Nelson Softball CEO Derryn French says the proactive association was quick to snap up the opportunity to bring the Black Sox down to Nelson as it raises the exposure of the sport to a new audience. The Black Sox came up against an Upper South Island invitational side in two matches, winning the first 4-1 in seven innings and the second match

8-0 in just six innings. The Black Sox also visited a number of schools across the district including Waimea College. Due to its success, Derryn was hoping that the Nelson Softball Association could lure the Black Sox back in the future and he was also hope to the idea of hosting an international fixture at the Saxton Ballpark.

Futsal league ready for kickoff

The Silly Billies of Waimea Intermediate School took out the junior BMG Top Team final. They are from left; Ella McDonald, Laura Berthelsen, Demi Woolley, Esme Justo, Montana Heslop, Brooke Matheson and Gemma Thompson. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Top Teams go to battle It was three from three for The Lakers at the Bowater Motor Group Top Team finals with the St Arnaud eight adding to their previous two titles. The Lakers, who finished with 890 points, more than 120 higher than runners-up, The Sharks, also claimed maximum points in five of the 12 games. Organiser Katrina McLean, of the Moutere Hills Community Centre, says The Lakers “cleaned up” having won by just the sole point last year.

“They’ve got great team work and individually they’re all fantastic performers.” The Silly Billies of Waimea Intermediate School took out the junior section with 638 points, with The Supa Doolies coming second with 526 points. Katrina says the experienced teams added more competition to the event and was hoping they would all return next year. Twelve teams qualified for this year’s final.

If the Fulton Hogan Basketball League is for the winter months, then the FAV Mobile Solutions Futsal League is for summer. A new futsal league kicked on Sunday at Saxton Stadium and those involved are confident it will be as successful as the very popular and almost iconic Fulton Hogan basketball league. The Inclusive Sports Trust has partnered up with Nelson Bays Futsal and thanks to funding from the Kiwisport Fund and the Lion Foundation along with generous sponsorship from FAV Mobile Solutions, is able to provide this opportunity for people with supported learning needs to participate in this relatively new sport to Nelson. The Inclusive Sport Trust is a recently formed entity established to promote ability and opportunity through sport. Primarily all members will have the opportunity to participate alongside their peers; to enjoy playing sport at their ability level; to be welcome and to belong as rightful members of the community.

Don Martin and Heather Walker from The Inclusive Sport Trust have every confidence that the new league will be a hit as they know firsthand the value of what is on offer. Having seen the growth of the Fulton Hogan Basketball League from small beginnings to where it is today, 16 teams, 2 grades and involving 120 participants. This is the recipe for success that is being rolled out with the futsal league. The plan is to begin the futsal league with intensive coaching provided by Nelson Bays Futsal. Initially games will be played to enhance skill development. Already there is significant interest but there is always room for anyone to come along and have a go. The FAV Mobile Solutions League is played on a Sunday afternoon. There is a junior programme called ‘Junior Kickers’ which runs on Tuesday afternoons and is all about coaching through fun games and skills and drills to build confidence and ability. This is a similar programme one that was delivered throughout the basketball season.

Last minute heart break for footballers The QSP Tasman Thistle masters football team were just four minutes away from glory on the Gold Coast. The team featuring players from Richmond Athletic and FC Nelson were up 1-0 against the Beenleigh Lions in the final of the Gold Coast Pan Pacific Games 35 years and over division. Player-coach Andy Morris says the side were looking good until the Beenleigh Lions scored an equaliser in the 86th minute. “It was the last thing we wanted after playing six games straight in the Gold Coast heat,” he says. But Beenleigh weren’t done yet and managed to score the winner in extra time, handing the silver medal to

the Tasman Thistle side. “Naturally we are disappointed not to win the gold. It was a hard fought battle as all of the games were played at a very high level. The team performed very well, drawing the first game then winning the next four to be the top qualifier from our pool.” Tasman Thistle were struck down with two key injuries during the tournament with goal keeper Lutz Gerwin breaking his arm and Gary Calderbank picking up a foot injury. The team were happy that they gelled so quickly, having played just one game before hand. “We were also very thankful to the supporters who made the trip and to the many sponsors that also played a key part.”

The Tasman Thistle team prior to their first match of the Gold Coast Pan Pacific Games.

faced with ease. Kvido went the entire tournament without dropping more than two points in each match. Second place went to Sam Trice of Upper Moutere. Despite a 16-0 loss to Kvido in one of the earlier matches, Sam went the rest of the tournament unbeaten. In the girls draw, Claudia Miccio of the Stoke Tennis Club won all her matches and showed great control and strength during the tournament. Runner-up was Hannah Young, also of Stoke.
