School to rebuild iconic water wheel Phillip Rollo

In 1911, Brightwater’s first five street lights were switched on when the hens came to roost at night. Power was supplied by Kohatu farmer Robert Ellis’ water wheel at the Brightwater Flourmill. The only problem was he did not have a switch to turn it on and off. Instead it was up to the timing of the chooks who would sit on a plank in the evening and turn the power on. Ellis St was named after the farmer who was also the first supplier of electricity in the region. For Brightwater School’s

125th jubilee the iconic water wheel will be reconstructed and turned into a feature at the front of the school. The water wheel has been the school logo since its centenary in 1988. The school’s current sports uniform had the water wheel emblem imprinted on it and there are windows around the school that depict a water wheel. It will be made in time for the 125th jubilee held on March 22 and 23 in 2013. Current principal Gerald Baldwin was hoping to use “as much local labour” as possible but had not confirmed who SEE PAGE 2

‘It’s breaking the law’

Police weigh in on Sundial Square bus dilemma Phillip Rollo Police could issue infringement notices to bus drivers parking illegally in the middle of the road in Sundial Square. The newly announced NBus has been backing traffic up in Sundial Square. If one bus is already parked in the sole bus stop in Sundial Square and a second arrives on the one way street, it has to wait behind it. This causes traffic to divert through the Richmond Mall car park unless they’re prepared to wait. Acting sergeant Shane Ohlson says police or parking wardens could slap an instant $60 parking infringement on the vehicle. The bus company is breaching one offence when it is “double parked” but if the traffic is backed up to Queen St blocking off vehicles from enter-

ing Sundial Square it also breaches parking at an intersection. Tasman District Council is in charge of deciding where the bus stops are placed in the Richmond area. But when SBL requested a bus stop in Sundial Square, council accepted the decision and put one in place. With the problem now surfacing at multiple times a day, SBL has asked council to supply a second bus stop in the two car parks behind the current one. Council will not budge and are in a position where they could remove it from its current location. Shane says police will be speaking with SBL today to resolve the issue. “We could just go down there and start handing out tickets. But we want to stop it from happening and that’s not going to help anybody.”

Lightning batters Brightwater FROM PAGE 1 When lightning hits the ground it tends to travel. In this case it travelled through an underground copper network and affected two telecommunications links, which caters for up to 100 customers. But Chorus spokesperson Robin Kelly says the figure of affected residents was much less than 100. “It would’ve entered the network and travelled to roadside cabinets and also travelled down the line and affected customers’ equipment in their own homes,” says Robin.

Repairs to their own network had been completed by Saturday but the lengthy process getting all of the residents back online can be a more difficult task. “We’re still working through everything so if there are residents that are experiencing problems then they need to log a fault.” Repairing the problem involved finding the site and then working outwards along the line, fixing piece by piece. Lightning strikes are not “uncommon” in the Nelson region, says Robin.

Maori king to open school The Maori king, Tuheitia Paki, will open the region’s first ever Maori immersion school on July 14. Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Tuia te Matangi, which is situated in Richmond next to Salisbury School and the Richmond Church of Christ, has employed six teachers, including its principal, and has 54 students currently enrolled. The majority of those students have come from central Nelson. It will be the fifth Maori immersion school in the South Island and was fully funded by the Ministry of Education. Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Tuia te Matangi principal Merita Waitoa-Paki says the school “is a dream come true” following an idea that started 20 years ago to build a kura (school) in Nelson. “Even for me, who has come on in the later

time, for Maori education in Nelson, Marlborough and Tasman it is exciting,” she says. “For me personally it is huge challenge but it’s very exciting and motivating.” The first month will involve creating a culture amongst the school. Staff will go through a three day “live in” at the Whakatu Marae before the school opens. The kura is being constructed by Arrow International. Every student and family was interviewed and assessed in Te Reo Moari prior to joining the kura. Merita would like to acknowledge the schools that the students are coming from. “They’ve been so supportive for the students to go. As part of the exit from their schools, a lot of them will be holding various farewells and we’ve been invited for the hand over.”

150% increase upsets local builders Andrew Board The removal of a long standing discount for new houses by Tasman District Council has riled some local builders, which may be forced to pay up to 150 per cent more. But TDC says the change, set to take effect at the start of July, is fairer for general ratepayers and other changes mean it may actually be cheaper for some developers. Dick Baker, of Endeavour Homes, says he knew nothing of the proposed changes until he discovered them “by accident” while applying for building consent last week.

One property in Richmond his client wanted built on was to cost $7400 in consents and development levies. After July 1 the same consents and fees on the same property will be $18,000. Another property in Brightwater was currently $3500, but will rise to $8000 after the change. He says he was furious when he found out and upset that no one at council consulted with the industry. “They just think we are all going to roll over and accept it and that really pisses me off to tell you the truth.” He says other builders he has spoken to were equally upset with the changes. But the council’s regularly manager Adri-

an Humphries says the costs haven’t increased, just moved around with an “unfair” discount removed. Since 2004 houses that were the first built on a title received a 66 per cent discount on their waste water, storm water and drinking water infrastructure charges. A second home on any title had to pay the full amount. “Wasn’t a fair system, because if you build the first house on a title you only pay 34 per cent yet you are still using the same amount of waste, storm and drinking water,” says Adrian. Other changes mean the cost of waste water has increased 43 per cent from $5696

to $8118 and storm water have risen 71 per cent from $3011 to $5149. But roading levies have dropped from $5197 to $894, down 83 per cent and the drinking water levy has also dropped from $7145 to $6596. Adrian says if a developer was paying for all four levies the overall cost will have dropped by around $300. Dick says he has spoken with Richmond councillors who didn’t seem to know about the increases and he, along with others concerned about the increases hope to meet with councillors later this week before the plan is ratified on July 1.

Marmite raises big bucks at quiz night Three jars of Marmite and one jar of Vegemite helped Richmond School shore up $6000 from its quiz night on Saturday. The money raised will go towards funding a new playground for the school’s middle syndicate. Richmond School principal Tim Brenton says the playground is likely to be built by the end of the year. Around 30 tables of eight were sold for the quiz with Marmite jars donated by Richmond Pak’n Save being auctioned off at the end. The three jars of Marmite together raised close to $350 while the Vegemite, which is still available at its normal price, fetched $111.

Popular farmer farwelled Phillip Rollo Phil Gibbs was a quite achiever. The Wakefield farmer shook hands with Queen Elizabeth II, represented New Zealand in dog trials, held the presidency at the Nelson A&P Association for a term and received a Queen’s Service Medal in 1996, living a legacy that his family and friends proudly look back on today. Phil died on June 11 as a 94 year old. He was born in 1918 at the Wakefield nursing home, next to the railway station, where the village green is today. He was one of twelve siblings, his eldest brother James was killed in the First World War two weeks prior to Phil’s birth. Queen Elizabeth II arrived in Nelson in 1973 and the late Ernie King, who was president at the A&P Association at the time, asked Phil if he would like to put on a public sheep dog trial demonstration for the Queen to show her agricultural New Zealand and because of her association with dogs. Locals assembled at the Tahunanui Playing Fields for a public walk about with the Queen, which was one of the first times royalty had met the public in such a manner. During her walk about, Queen Elizabeth II walked up to Phil. He was performing his dog trial demonstration at the time and had the whole thing finished by the time she reached him. So he ran them through for the second time. When she finally arrived in Phil’s pres-

ence, Queen Elizabeth spontaneously shook his hand. The irony was that because Phil was unaware that he was going to meet the Queen, his wife Nell had not even come with him. Phil’s son Colin, who currently mans the 526 acre Lone Oak Farm in Gibbs Valley, Wakefield, says meeting the Queen was his father’s proudest moment. “It was particularly up there, along with receiving the medal. He was a quite achiever and that showed in his perfection,” says Colin. In 1996 Phil received a Queen’s Service Medal for services to dog trials as well as agricultural and pastoral activities. Governor General Dame Catherine Tizard handed Phil his medal in Wellington. For a number of years Phil performed with great distinction in a number of farming competitions. Phil was a three-time national sheep dog trial champion as well as finishing in the top seven 24 times. He wore the black blazer three times for the New Zealand team in test matches against Australia. His first appearance in the silver fern came in 1989. A book was written by his daughter in-

law Marilyn Gibbs, covering Phil’s history in detail. Other highlights include his time at Wakefield Primary School, his wedding with Nell, who previously lived down the road from the farm, the birth of their four children Donald, Colin, Barbara and Ian, Nell and Phil’s golden wedding anniversary in 1989 and representing the Wakefield Rovers Rugby Club. He was a life member of the Nelson A&P Association, the Nelson Marlborough Sheep Dog Trial Association and the New Zealand Sheep Dog Trial Association. Phil lived at Otumarama Hospital Care in his final years, having previously spent time at the Wakefield Rest Home before Nell passed away.

Appleby cheese maker’s house gets demolished

The former home to a cheese maker is being demolished at the Grape Escape complex but its history outside that is mostly unknown to its current owner. The house is believed to have been built in the 1930s as a residential home for the workers at the cheese factory. New Zealand Transport Agency has cited a future expansion of McShane Rd to four metres and has already gone about obtaining land. A four metre widening would have seen the road reach the lounge of the home. Because of its age and its condition, it was most recently rented out at a low price to tenants that kept baby llamas inside the house, it was decided to be dismantled and

turned into a lavender garden. The garden will be seen from the road and will allow future expansion. Grape Escape complex owner Bob Haswell was surprised to find no one within the area had spoken out about the home’s history. “We’re sort of hearing stories of vagrants that came along the main highway and squated in here but other than that we have bugger all information about it,” says Bob. He bought the complex ten years ago. The house is likely to be fully dismantled in a matter of weeks. “I’m sure Transit New Zealand are clapping their hands.” Do you know the history of this home?

Report rejects postponement policy in West Phillip Rollo Richmond West residents facing rate increases of up to 400 per cent due to a land rezoning will have to pay the new amount next month after council rejected a rates postponement policy. When a deferment was lifted on the land last year, a decision made by some of the landowners, it was rezoned from rural one and rural two to mixed business. The properties increased substantially in capital value and in turn, so did the rates. Some of the landowners and elderly residents in the affected area around Headingly Lane and Lower Queen St remained under the belief that the deferment had not been lifted and cited a lack of communication on council’s part. While some were aware the deferment had been lifted, they were under the impression that it would not affect their rates. Last month Tasman District Council mayor Richard Kempthorne spoke with the residents and a report was to be completed, likely to result in a rates postponement policy. But the report has been released rejecting the policy, that “none of the residents” were happy with anyway, says Tasman District deputy mayor Tim King. Tim says the putting the deferment back on would have a negative impact on those that did want to develop. “It wasn’t a practical option. Even the residents weren’t keen on a rates postponement scheme,” he says.

Mini challenge a giant fundraiser Andrew Board Bob Croy likes to do his bit for the Cancer Society. He grows daffodils for its annual appeal and collects money on Daffodil Day. But after completing this year’s Relay for Life he wanted to do something bigger. His idea though was mini. A 1975 Morris Mini Mk 3, to be precise. Bob says he and three friends were sitting around a café table drinking coffee after this year’s Relay for Life, having raised more than $2500 for the charity. But seeing another group raise more than $6000 got their competitive juices going and he began to think about how they could top it for the 2014 event. “I thought ‘how the hell can I beat that?’” The idea of restoring a Mini like brand new soon followed and in March Bob shook hands with a reluctant seller and purchased the Mini for him and his mates to restore before raffling it off. The plan was to raise $10,000 but with offers of help coming from all over the region Bob reckons they’ll smash that total. “I think that estimate will be very light,” he grins. The four mates – all from Wakefield – all have a passion for helping people with

cancer. They have all seen its effects up close, so were keen to make sure the Mini raffle was done right and soon after starting their project they had offers of support from panel beaters, car painters and auto electrians. Bowater Motor Group also found out about the project and came on board as a sponsor, supplying every brand new part for free. Bob says the support was overwhelming. “When we started my wife and I were going to pay for it all and when the raffle finished pay ourselves back and hoped there would be $10,000 at the end of it. But with everyone coming on board we don’t have to do that, it’s really good.” The Mini has been stripped down to every last part and was recently sandblasted. The engine will be rebored and the car will be painted bright yellow. The only thing that will not be standard will be tyres and mags. “We hope to have it finished by June next year, then we’ll

cart it around and sell raffle tickets.” Among those volunteering their time to work on the car are Tony Johnson from Sun City Panel and Paint, Nick Harrison, John Ross and the three other originals, John Bruce, Dal Stewart and Colin Ryder. They plan to cart the Mini around on a trailer all over the top of the south. Bob says with the team now in place he contacted Waimea Weekly to let the public

know what’s going on. “A lot of people don’t know about it. The people we’ve told have been right in behind us but the general public doesn’t really know so we want to get it out there.” By this time next year, the bright yellow Mini will definitely be out there and Bob says he hopes it will make its mark not just for how it looks, but for how much money it raises.

Police bust drunk drivers during weekend sting Eighteen police officers from Nelson Bays road policing units took part in Operation Shamrock, an operation aimed at targeting rural drink drivers over the weekend. Officers patrolled the townships of Murchison, Tapawera, Wakefield, Brightwater, Moutere, Mapua, Motueka and Riwaka, as

well as the roads linking the settlements. During the operation 508 vehicles were stopped and their drivers were breath tested. Fifty-five of those had been consuming alcohol and five drivers underwent evidential breath tests that resulted in them being over the adult legal limit of 400 milligrams

of alcohol per litre of breath. Two drivers blew more than 700 milligrams of alcohol per litre of breath. One vehicle was also impounded due to the driver being previously forbidden. Three drivers had their driver’s licences suspended and more than 40 Infringement

Twins draw even The ‘My Kid Could Do That!’ art exhibition has captured the imagination of children right across the region. From Collingwood to Nelson, more than 400 artworks poured in, from children aged 3–12 after being featured in the Waimea Weekly. It took the experienced judges Lloyd Harwood, Anne Rush and Steve Fullmer more than three

hours to select which artworks will be framed and exhibited. Surprisingly, two of the chosen artworks not only come from children in the same family but from twins. They are eight year old boys Matthew and Jason Dunlea from Hope. The brothers created their artworks with their class mates at Ranzau School. The panel were impressed with the energy and expressiveness in the two paintings. Jason’s painting is of a colourful bowl of fruit and Matthew has painted an intriguing figure in a room. The paintings really couldn’t be more different. Richmond Picture Framers now has a big task ahead to frame all 31 artworks before the show opens on the July 1. It will be open for three weeks.

Offence Notices were issued for various driving, or driver licence offences. Tasman District commander, superintendent Richard Chambers says “preventing something from happening is much more effective than picking up the pieces after the event”.

Each week photos from the museum’s “glass plate” collection will run in the Waimea Weekly to try to find out more about them. Right: Workman. Nelson Provincial Museum, F N Jones Collection: 312426.

Just a thought... Model search returns to mall We are driving headlong into winter – a time when we tend to hibernate by the fire or take a trip to some exotic tropical island (we wish). Of course we have to get out and brave the cold, do our jobs, fetch and carry the kids well wrapped up, and get on with some good healthy exercise. It’s a time when things can seem a bit gloomy – yet every season has its blessings. In the midst of economic gloom, there are the bright lights that speak of coming spring. We just celebrated the birth of a new grandchild, what excitement and anticipation a new life gives to us. A friend commented on the wonderful autumn, and how we have now passed the shortest day, so it will all be upwards from now on – that’s attitude (that’s faith too). Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the promise of things not yet seen. We will survive the grey and the rain and the frosts, because we know spring brings transformation. Your attitude can transform your winter, when you focus on the positive Rev. Allan Wasley, and celebrate the many Wakefield Anglican. little blessings which make up every day. A lady was told off for carrying her Bible in her job – but she knew a secret – faith is about God’s word provides amazing promises, which will come when we hold onto God by faith day by day. Simple trust in Jesus gives us encouragement and attitude, that the victory is about to arrive. Hope can live within our hearts, no matter what the season.

Entries for the Richmond Mall Model Search need to be in this week as the region’s top beauties fight it out for a $500 photo shoot. Many past contestants have gone on to make a name for themselves in the industry, with past winners now featuring on television commercials, newspaper advertising and starring in the World of Wearable Arts Show. Kendal McSlorley, who finished second place in the teen category during the competition’s first year, says the Richmond Mall Model Search gave her the confidence to push higher in the industry. “I think the model search is a great opportunity for the local girls to get a taste of the industry, not only the modeling but also to learn about the grooming side and all the other aspects that come with it, because after all modeling isn’t just about posing behind a camera,” she says. Kendal is now living in Christchurch and is signed up with a local model agency. She is working as a freelance makeup artist and just recently quali-

There will be four separate categories during the week the event is held. Miss Primary Richmond Mall is held on Monday July 2 for children between four and eight years old. Miss Junior Richmond Mall for contestants age nine to 11 years old will be held on July 3. Miss Intermediate Richmond Mall will be held on July 4 and is for people age 12-14 years old. Miss Teen Rich-

mond Mall is held on Thursday and is for models aged 15 to 18 years old. The finals, which will also pick an overall winner, is being held on Friday July 5. The judging begins at 11am on each day of the event. All contestants will also go in the draw to win a family trip to the Gold Coast. Grab an entry form today from the Richmond Mall Customer Service Desk and return it with your $2 entry fee by July 2.

From My Desk

We have passed the shortest day, and it is only a few more days until the second term school holidays, another month to cross off on the calendar. It’s been a busy ½ year at college for my own teenagers and their friends, and I know they are all looking forward to a relaxing school holiday. I am sure some of you are planning to go away or even head to the mountains for a play in the snow or to hit the slopes. Be safe and enjoy. Fashion Island is having the most amazing ‘winter wonderland.’ First week of the holidays we are bringing snow to Nelson… an ice/snow mountain with snow makers, so come and bring the children and have a play. Grab a hot chocolate and enjoy the winter white atmosphere. Make sure while you are here to go into the draw to win double ski passes to Rainbow ski field, or Cardrona ski field near Queenstown. Wrap up warm with some furs or decadently warm jerseys from The Rock Box. This gorgeous store has had more amazing winter clothes arrive, jackets, long tees, jeans and dresses. For all girls shopping for their ball dresses, you definitely need to look at the stunning selection of short and long dresses and with The Rock Box’s selection of beautiful jewellery you will be ready to start booking your makeup with The Body Shop for your special night. Have a fabulous week, and I look forward to seeing you at our Fashion Island.

POST IT PRANK: Nayland College students Blayne Wanoa Commons, Alan Urwin, Kelly Duff and Luke Green snuck into enemy territory to prank the car of a Waimea College student last Friday. They covered the car, which belong to a friend, entirely with post-it notes. The owner of the car was quick to find it, before returning back to class having found the funny side of the prank. The guys said it took them around 30 minutes to finish the prank. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Nelson Honey’s Royal Nectar products are fit for a princess - literally. Rae Butler, the head beekeeper of the countless Nelson Honey hives, is responsible for collecting the raw products to capture the natural goodness of manuka honey, bee venom and bees wax, which Nelson Honey then processes towards creating their Royal Nectar Face Mask and Moisturising Face Lift. Components sourced from the Nelson Honey hives have been used to create products used by the likes of Kate Middleton in the lead up to the Royal wedding. Rae is highly experienced and well renowned Rae Butler within the beekeeping industry in Nelson and country wide, and is currently working to breed bees resistant to the verroa mite, which can be very detrimental to bee colonies. Nelson Honey’s Royal Nectar Face Mask and Moisturising Face Lift gently stimulate facial muscles to firm skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Visit to see this and their great range of products. I am a sucker for beauty. I always have been. It dazzles me, whether in the form of a man, a woman, a sunrise or tiny shoots poking their heads through encrusted mud after a devastating flood. One way or another I have spent over ten years working with beauty, on cruise ships, teaching beauty therapy and as a hands on beauty therapist. I also love the trapping and trimmings - the glory and glamour of lotions and potions, sparkling eyeshadows and shimmering lip glosses. Since I was a teenager my dressing table has been littered with colours and brushes, hair clips, bottles and sprays. I soon learned that beautiful skin matters. I discovered I needed to eat natural foods, never go to bed without cleansing my face first, and nourish the skin to keep it soft and smooth with something really active, be it fresh papaya or an absurdly expensive but irresistible French night cream to help repair cell damage. I love the skin nurturing ritual, it is a time of silence, solitude and renewal. And it’s fun! My involvement with skin and beauty is my passion. I figure these two aspects of a womans life are so dependent on each other that they cannot be separated. Patricia Murrow and pet pooch Missy are based in Richmond’s Green Waste Recycling centre where they work hard to keep down the cost of dumping your green waste. If you dump your green waste with them at 18 Cargill Place in Richmond you will be helping the environment and save the senseless waste of landfill space. Patricia says “good composting takes time and time produces the best compost.” The other great benefits, apart from it being natural, are that the compost doesn’t smell, its clean to use and it’s free of weeds. Their 100% organically produced compost has absolutely no chemicals Patricia Murrow and no fillers added so you are buying 100% & Missy organically produced compost! You can buy in bulk or by the bag and they also supply, garden mulch, topsoil, shale, and eucalyptus sleepers.

Great Taste Cycle Trail Trust member Bill Gilbertson and design engineer Andy Reid check out the progress of the trail’s new connecting bridge between Brightwater and Richmond. The bridge will be officially unveiled to the public on July 8. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

Bridge opens next month Keen cyclists will be able to take a trip across the Richmond to Brightwater suspension bridge as soon as the second week of July. Described as a family day for cyclists of all ages and stages, cyclists are invited to join the Nelson to Wakefield trail from their closest trail point and make their way to Brightwater where at 1pm the official bridge opening ceremony will be held. The $265,000 bridge connects Pugh Rd and Bryant Rd and is a key piece to completing the first segment of the trail. Stage one of the trail,

which will be from Richmond to both Mapua and Wakefield, is on target to be completed by the end of the year. The nine metre high towers on the bridge have been constructed by Edifice Ltd with the foundations constructed by Kidsons Construction. In other cycle trail related news, fundraising team the Coastal $800k Group based in Motueka is celebrating a boost to its efforts by welcoming its first “1 kilometre club” donation of $20,000 by New World Motueka.

Students take to the dirt Around 180 people witnessed the inaugural Tasman Secondary Schools Motocross Championship held at the Parkes property, 88 Valley, Wakefield on Sunday. Supported by Sport Tasman and hosted by the Nelson Motorcycle Club in conjunction with MotoX Events, 63 riders thrilled the crowd with close and fast racing on a perfectly groomed track. Jackson Walker of Broadgreen Intermediate School owned the small wheel 85/150 class with four outright wins, Clayton Roeske of

Waimea Intermediate School had to fight for first place in the big wheel 85/150 class, while the speed and stamina of Bradley Biggs from Waimea College was too much for the 20 other 125/250 class riders to match. A combined field of eight riders made up the final group of ladies, farm bike and support classes. Twelve teams fought for the top school honours with the combined total of Waimea College just edging out Waimea Intermediate School.

Sparks fly into third The Nelson Sparks were one early morning tipoff away from a perfect start to the Women’s Basketball Championship season. The 53-43 loss to Waitakere West Auckland Rangers was the only blight on an otherwise superb first up tournament that was highlighted by a 50-42 victory over the Canterbury Wildcats late on Sunday afternoon. The WBC, which is the premier basketball tournament for women in New Zealand, is held in a different format to the men’s equivalent. Instead of playing each weekend on a home and away basis, the WBC is held over three separate three day tournaments. The final tournament will also hold the playoffs. Nelson Sparks welcomed back Jelena Vucinic and Jessica Bygate from the United States for the tournament, while a number of other players studying at university also donned the blue singlet. Youngsters Kaitlyn Stringer, Lily Hospers and Gracie Roberts were named in the initial squad as head coach Tatjana Zizic looked for a mixture of youth and experience. Jodi Hikuroa, Lisa Book and Kat Jones were all used to good affect throughout the tournament. Big wins over Palmerston North Storm and the Taranaki Trojans in the first two rounds had put Nelson on top of the standings early. But Sunday morning’s loss has left the side in third place going into tournament two next month. The unusual time of an 8am tipoff for Sunday’s clash with Waitakere West Auckland was no excuse as Tatjana cited a lack of execution for the loss. Rangers were clinical from the floor, nailing shots at 60 per cent throughout the encounter. “Apart from that I was really happy. It was the first tournament and we had about three or four players come into the squad and we didn’t have much time as a team,” she says. Jelena ended the third day as the fifth top point scorer in the tournament; averaging 14 points per game.

Fustal kicking on


Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club This week we are looking at areas to jig kingfish. The most common area close to Nelson in summer is around the mussel farms close to Motueka. Use a 200gm – 300gm jig close to the ends of the farms at first light and be prepared to move away from the structure when you hook up. Another way is to throw a stickbait or popper into the farm and have another person jigging on the boat, like switch baiting marlin. The most common area to target big kingfish is around D’Urville Island. Look for areas of fast moving water with steep drop offs. Use your sounder to find the schools of bait fish and look for kingfish around the outsides of these schools. Be prepared to change jigs a lot un-

til you find one that will work. Having a good range of different jigs is a must. Top, bottom and middle weighted jigs, different colours, sizes and shapes, you can never cover enough bases, and one of them will work. Keep your line straight up and down to maximise your hookup rate. Remember don’t gaff your fish, lift them out with your heavy leader, tag and release your fish.

The country’s fastest growing sport is having similar affects in Nelson. Futsal, an indoor variant to football, has called the Nelson College for Girls Hall home on Monday nights but due to the sport’s growing popularity, a new winter league will also be held on Wednesdays. Currently, Nelson Bays Fustal has 16 teams that compete in its Autumn League on Monday. But that demand is now bursting at the seams and the sport’s leading figure in Nelson says it’s time for new players and teams to join the flow over on a Wednesday. The first week is free. “I just want to let people know that now is the time to give it a go. If I could replicate on a Wednesday night what we do on a Monday night then I’d be happy as, it’d be brilliant,” says coordinator John Vaughan. The Winter League is even open to players who do not have a team organised. It is common for players to show interest and be put into teams on the night. Participation numbers have grown 25 per cent over in the past six months. Futsal is part of New Zealand Football’s Whole of Football Plan, which was implemented following the 2010 FIFA World Cup to develop future stars. Nelson’s own future futsal players are starting to develop now as well with the region sending an Under-15 representative side to a junior futsal tournament in Wellington next month. If you are interested in playing futsal or want to find out more information on the sport, please contact John on 027 547 4436.

RUGBY: Waimea College first XV secured an impressive 24-6 win over Shirley Boy’s High School in Christchurch over the weekend. Outstanding backs Sean Clementson and Fletcher Matthews scored the side’s three tries. Waimea went into the halftime break leading 10-6. SPORT TASMAN: If you head down to the Richmond Recreation Centre any given Thursday lunchtime you will find a dedicated group of youngsters learning key skills for life. The youngsters, all aged between 5-8 years old, are students from Richmond School and they are being taught basic fundamental movement skills such as hopping, rolling, skipping and balancing by qualified gymnastics instructor Linda Mace, principal coach of Just Gym. What is great about this class is that children, for whom physical activity is often a challenge, have the chance to be together, developing their physical capabilities which in turn assist in their learning.

Wanderers Sports Club


Wolves hit hard by in form Tigers Ben Cooper The Sims Pacific Metals Tahuna Tigers have made life just that much tougher for the Malbas Bar Wanderers Wolves, edging the side 27-12 at Lower Ngawhatu on Saturday. With the grounds in Tahunanui still too wet to play on, the Tigers’ home game was re-scheduled to a neutral location. But it appeared that home ground advantage counted for nought as

the Tigers opened the scoring in only the fifth minute with light footed halfback Jacob Edwards stepping his way through the middle of the pack. The side held the lead throughout most of the first half before Ethan Cooper and Sam Hedges scored. The Wolves play the Stables Richmond Rabbits this weekend at Ngawhatu and must win at least one of their two remaining games to have a chance at finals footy.

Stoke spoil the party

Rest of Wanderers win away from home

Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers must have wondered what had hit them. The last time the Brightwater side played Accessman Stoke, it secured the first win of its new dawn in the Car Company division one. Saturday was much different as the competition’s bottom team ran in seven tries to three to claim an important 46-18 victory. The result highlighted the impact the return of some of Stoke’s most familar faces will have come the end of the season. Wanderers found themselves down 29-3 after 40 minutes, its only points coming from a sole Jackson Harvey penalty. Riley Johnston, Trael Joass and Ethan Johnston scored late tries but the damage had already been inflicted by that stage. The “Wizards” will have another tough ask this

weekend, facing a Galbraith Group Nelson side bouyed by a commanding 35-0 Bayleys Tasman Trophy. Wanderers division two side travelled over the hill to play Takaka on Saturday. The boys battled hard into a strong head wind in both halves, with the gust unluckily switching on 40 minutes. With the scores locked at 0-0, Wanderers finally got themselves on the board and managed to seal the victory just momoments later courtesy of two converted tries. Gareth Palmer put in another strong showing to get player of the day while Tom Stillwell and the consistent Rhys Horncastle also put in strong shifts. The Wanderers division three side beat Mot United 35-17. The undefeated side will tackle Stoke in Brightwater this weekend.

Waimea Old Boys Rugby

Riwaka await WOB

Star & Garter Waimea Old Boys head into Saturday’s away trip to ENZA Riwaka knowing that a loss could end its season. Waimea Old Boys currently sit in sixth place, on the same points as seventh placed Riwaka. But with Accessman Stoke springing back into life thanks to the arrival of some of the side’s superstars, the playoff hunt has become even more of a dog fight. Riwaka surprised second place New World Huia on Saturday to give them the same amount of points as Waimea who had one week off with the bye. Galbraith Group Nelson cemented first place weeks ago and now sit a staggering 26 points ahead of second place Huia. With Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers falling off the pace and Wakatu Marist and Stoke making a late

surge, playoff spots will be anybody’s guess. But Waimea co-coach Mark Milne was bouyed by the side’s performance in the recent Bayleys Tasman Trophy and says all three matches against Riwaka, Wanderers and Marist are “must win” games but the opposition was beatable. “It won’t change the psyche too much, we just must win,” says Mark. “They’re definitely winable. But they’re going to be tough there’s no doubt about that.” A slow start to the season has been a common trend for three of the teams fighting for a semi final spot. “We’ve developed hugely through the Tasman Trophy and I think the travel helped that.” Former Tasman Makos halfback Kaide Whiting was unlikely to return this season after injuring his ankle playing for Nelson Bays earlier in the month.

Default turns Huia clash into friendly Star & Garter Waimea Old Boys’ Women will have just one dress rehersal before the playoffs start in two week’s time. Waimea took full points against New World Huia as the side defaulted on Saturday. There were not enough players to supply a full 15-a-side game so the side’s chances to brush up ahead of the sudden death playoff fixtures were shortened by one week. Because a handful of

Huia players did arrive at Jubilee Park, a 10 a-side game was held instead. Waimea will take on Marist at home this Saturday and are likely to reach the playoffs in first place despite losing last weekend’s clash with rivals Stoke. In the other Waimea Old Boys fixture on the weekend, the second division side lost 25-20 on the road to Collingwood. It faces Murchison this weekend.

Bogettes win by nine Although Stoke Richards Woodhouse was competitive in the first and third quarters when it drew both periods with Richmond Robbie’s Bar & Bistro Bogettes, it was outscored two to one in the remaining quarters. Stoke’s defenders Ness White and Claire Hodgman worked together to stem the flow of ball into Richmond’s tall goal shoot, Jenelle Strickland. There was very little the Stoke defenders could do to deny the second shot as any missed shot was more often than not rebounded by Jenelle. Richmond’s goal attack, Melissa Marfell had a steady game and was content to play a supportive shooting role, however she did convert a number of nice

shots. Wing attack, Nicola Charles displayed patience on the feed and was always available on the circle edge for the in and out pass. Anna Johansen linked the court well while wing defence, Natasha Crawford was keen for any sniff of possession as she constantly put her body on the line as she attempted to gain possession. Hayley Campbell made an impact at goal defence where she put the Stoke shooters under pressure. Hayley actually rejected a shot, and she did not have to employ the “Harrison Hoist”.

Young shooter, Georgia Wright was Stoke’s stand out player, she had the perfect record in the first quarter with six from six. She balanced the court well with fill-in Dayna Whiting as her partner. Georgia moved the circle well to present to her feeders who were rewarded with a number of long range conversions. Tessa Hancock at wing attack was steady through court and worked hard to supply quality ball while Jamie Kingi provided the punch through the middle. Richmond’s superior scoring in the second and fourth quarters paved the way for 30-21 win.
