Hanna’s say thanks to community The organisers of a fundraising drive for Ranui House in Christchurch are “elated” with the response. Last year Waimea Weekly told the story of Peter and Lynda Hanna. As Lynda fought a battle with cancer Peter stayed in Ranui House, an accommodation block near Christchurch hospital, and quickly met a lot of other Nelsonians supporting their loved ones through a similar journey. When Peter and Lynda returned home Peter wanted to do what he could to help the house that had been a huge help for him. They organised a music concert, a golf fundraiser, a hangi and a quiz night, in total raising $34,965. “We’re just elated with what’s happened,” says Peter. “To get the support we’ve had has been fantastic and that’s surprised me a bit.” The music concert fundraiser held last November raised $9000. The hangi at the Wanderers clubrooms in Janu-

The remaining $3855 came from outside donations from people around the South Island. Peter says the trust behind Ranui House “just can’t believe” how much they’ve raised. While praising the community support, Lynda also thanked the Weekly for covering each of the fundraising events to help promote them. “Peter and I would like to thank you very much for your support, you have been really great to work with.”

Mike needs new lungs to live Mike Corkill has already done the Christmas shopping for his five children – whether or not he’ll be around to watch them open their presents is far from certain though. Doctors have said he may not live that long. Mike, 44, has a pulmonary arterial hypertension, which basically means the arteries in his lungs are closing and not enough blood is

because one out of seven patients who have the surgery end up having kidney problems, which means living on dialysis. Because lung donors are so rare, New Zealand doctors will only give them to patients who will have a certain “high quality of life” after the operation. Outside of New Zealand, Mike can

Mike needs new lungs to live FROM PAGE 1

go to Australia for the operation but the cost is $350,000, or India at a cost of $100,000. He says he’s determined to do anything to live so he can watch his kids grow up, including the youngest who is just nine years old, and the operation still gives him a six out of seven chance of living a happy and longer life. “It’s gut-wrenching. I want to be able to go to their 21st birthdays, weddings, watch them have children of their own. I want to take them camping and kick a soccer ball with them. But I can’t.” So he’s calling on Nelson. Mike was a labourer and keen tennis player before his condition forced him from his job and admits he knows nothing about raising money, let alone

$100,000. “I’m out of my depth here, I love my kids. I want to do the best thing by them and I want to live. But I need help.” He is hoping people may be able to come forward with ideas for fundraisers, or even donate some money into a bank account he set up just last week. “I’m keen to hear from anyone. Someone mentioned a charity dinner but I don’t know how to go about it.” If Mike – who has never smoked – can raise the money, he’ll fly to India where the hospital and doctors are world-class and have been vetted by his local doctors. The reason it’s cheaper is because there are simply more donors and the associated costs are less. Mike says he’s done his research and the Indian hospital checks out.

He doesn’t have much time though and the stress and strain on the faces of his mother, wife and children are obvious. His wife Julie-Ann says it’s been difficult dealing with Mike’s health as he needs to be breathing through an oxygen machine 16 hours a day. Mike isn’t giving up though and is planning a fishing trip with his kids during the school holidays. “I want to cram as much in as possible and spend as much quality time as I can with my kids. I want to keep doing that over the next ten years though, not just the next few months,” he says If you’d like to donate to Mike’s operation his bank account details are: 389006-0093683-03.

WEDNESDAY 30 April 2014

Wakefield’s huge Anzac turn out Anzac Day continues to increase in popularity around the Tasman district with large numbers of people attending memorial services at Richmond, Wakefield, Brightwater and Tapawera. Wakefield led the way with around 400 people, or one fifth of its population, jamming into the town hall before marching down to the cenotaph to lay wreaths in honour of the district’s fallen soldiers. But sadly, the number of returned servicemen and women attending the Wakefield ceremony is declining, with one of the town’s last World

War II veterans, Ira McPherson, absent for the first time in decades because of illness. “We had two or three World War II veterans in Wakefield up until recently and now Ira is the last of them,” RSA member Peter Eden says. “It’s really sad that he isn’t here.” Wakefield’s Ian Hutchings, who served in Borneo, Malaya and Vietnam, agreed the ceremony wasn’t the same without Ira. “He’s a village identity so it’s a shame he couldn’t be here. But it’s good to see ANZAC Day getting bigger every year.” It was also a sad day for Wakefield’s oldest resident, 96-year-old Kathleen Jones, who has been attending the Wakefield ceremony with her daughter Val Collie for years. Kathleen’s younger brother Charlie, was just 21 when he was killed in a tank at Casino in World War II. “Mum’s older brother Pat was also in Casino and walked

right past the tank just after it had been blown up,” Val says. “He didn’t find out until later that Charlie had been killed in that tank.” Guest speaker Colonel Bernard Isherwood of Stoke, paid tribute to all “the young men, some older and more than a few just boys” who fought and died at Gallipoli, including Wakefield’s Paul Ricketts. Bernard said the true spirit of ANZAC Day lay in small communities like Wakefield where it served as a “commemoration of the effect of war on our country”. In Richmond, about 700 people attended the service in the Memorial Gardens following a parade down Queen Street. Richmond-Waimea RSA president Terry Richardson says they were delighted to have Blair Gerritsen as a guest speaker because he is from the Waimea district. Now a commander in the Royal New Zealand Navy, Blair attended Ranzau School and Waimea College before joining the navy in 1988. Terry says the services at Brightwater and Tapawera were also popular this year.

Baby sitters help with shopping

Shopping in the Richmond Mall has been a winwin situation for parents and their young children this week, with the parents dropping their kids off at the Eventful Kids activity centre while they go shopping. Children aged three to 12 have been enjoying a number of creative activities at the centre, including colouring-in, Lego, puzzles and dress-up, while their parents and caregivers get a chance to participate in some kids-free shopping. The service is free courtesy of the Richmond Mall and playcentre’s supervisor Alana Caunter says they have been busy since opening up on Monday. “We had one mother who said she couldn’t get her kids to leave,” Alana says. “There’s so much

for them to do and they have so much fun.” Mall manager Belinda de Clercq says they contracted Eventful Kids to run their mobile activity centre because they wanted to try something different these school holidays. “This is the first time we have tried this and we have got a lot of positive feedback,” Belinda says. “We usually put on some holiday activities for the children and we thought this one would be so good for the parents as well.” Eventful Kids is open from 11am to 3pm each day this week. It can take up to 20 children at once and looks after children for up to one hour. The bad news for parents is that the service is only for the last week on the holidays.

DIESEL SPILL: Several “small accidents” were caused by a large diesel spill on State Highway 6 between Richmond and Murchison on Monday. Contractors were called in to deal with the spill and sergeant Blair Hall says police had “several minor crashes reported” before it was cleaned up. BURNT MAN WAS NAKED: The 21-yearold Riwaka man who was badly-burned when he fell into the embers of a bonfire in Murchison early on Saturday morning, was naked and drunk at the time according to the manager of the camping ground where the man was staying. The man was flown from Murchison to Hutt Hospital’s burns unit after the accident which occurred at around 3.30am. The manager told the Waimea Weekly that the man was a member of a canoe club that had been partying at the camping ground. Rescue helicopter crewman Paul Bryant reported that the man had burns to his arms, legs and upper body. The man has been discharged from Hutt Hospital.

Richmond shoppers enjoyed a blast from the past when Stephanie Buck and Adele Terrill put on a lunchtime performance of war-time golden oldies, as a lead-in to last Friday’s ANZAC Day commemorations. Stephanie had earlier approached her neighbour and Richmond-Waimea RSA president, Terry Richardson, about putting on the performance to help raise funds for the RSA. The concert was a big hit with Stephanie playing the Richmond street piano and Adele, dressed-up as famous wartime singer Vera Lynn, providing the vocals. Adele, who only usually sings “in the shower and at the Annesbrook Church” says she enjoyed performing for the lunchtime crowd on Queen St. She says it was also fun dressing-up as the forces sweetheart, although she admits that “embarrassingly” her Vera Lynn outfit “just came out of my wardrobe”. Stephanie, who was the key player in organising a street piano for Richmond, says it was nice to use the piano to help raise funds for the RSA.

Cycle trail funding-cut attracts 80 objections The Tasman Great Taste Trail will be a hot topic at this Friday’s annual plan hearings in Richmond, with the Tasman District Council receiving 80 submissions objecting to their proposal to cut $600,000 spending from the cycle trail’s budget next year. Council is holding public hearings around the district on its 2014-2015 draft annual plan and many of the people who made written submissions will be speaking to councillors about their concerns. Council received 553 submissions on 1039 topics, including 127 from people concerned that the $4 million community facility in Golden Bay has been removed from the plan. However, the Richmond hearing is likely to be dominated by supporters of the cycle trail, who are concerned that the next stage of the trail from Wakefield to Spooner’s Tunnel has been deferred until further funding can be been secured. Focus Wakefield spokesperson Emma Marshall stated in her submission that “$600,000 is a small amount to pay in order to secure the huge flow-on benefits completion of this part of the trail will bring.” She pointed out that “the novelty and adventure factor of the Tasman Great Taste Trail going through the Spooner’s Tunnel is a huge drawcard for the whole trail.” A number of submitters, including Kohatu’s Roger Bowman, were concerned that the alternative route to the Wakefield-Spooner’s Tunnel section through Pigeon Valley was too dangerous for cyclists. Wakefield’s Doug Chapman stated that the funding cut was “short-sighted” and completing the cycle trail “would be a welcome boost” to Wakefield, Belgrove, Kohatu, Tapawera and Ngatimoti. Manager of Nelson Cycle Hire, Anita Gardner, stated in her submission that “over the last summer, since the (coastal section) of the trail has been completed, my own company’s revenue has tripled. If a small economic benefit can be achieved for other parts of our community then surely it is a compelling reason for the council to set aside funding in 2014-2015 for a speedy completion of the trail.” Richmond’s David and Joan Whittle’s submission pointed out that “completing the trail will strengthen the region’s attraction as a tourist destination and support the healthy lifestyle choices for Tasman residents.” The Richmond hearing will be held in the council chambers from 9.30am.

Duck season ready to go Simon Bloomberg

Senior reporter Reporter Duck shooters around the Nelson-Tasman region have a “pretty good safety record” and Nelson-Marlborough Fish and Game’s Neil Deans wants it to stay that way when the season opens this Saturday. Fish and Game expects to issue around 30,000 duck shooting licences nationwide this season and, with much of the shooting condensed into opening weekend, the chances of a firearms’ accident are increased. But Neil says opening weekend can be accident-free as long as duck shooters take care and follow a few basic safety rules. “Crossing fences with loaded guns is one of the biggest cause of accidents and it’s also important to make sure you can see what you are shooting at. And, of course, remember that alcohol and firearms don’t mix.” Although Neil says duck shooting isn’t as potentially dangerous as other forms of hunting, because shotguns have a limited range and hunters usually aimed up in the air, hunters still need to be careful. Duck hunters who are jump-shooting needed to take extra care because they stalk up to ponds and fire at a lower trajectory. Neil says duck hunters should have plenty to shoot at with the ducks returning to the region after a dry February and March. Hunters who had fed ponds to attract ducks should have a good opening, he says.

Stirling Sports Richmond owner Dave Heyward and Nelson-Marlborough Fish and Game field officer Lawson Davey, have been busy leading up to the opening of the duck shooting season this Saturday. Photo: Simon Bloomberg. “The breeding season wasn’t too bad, but then we had that long Indian Summer and I was beginning to wonder if we’d even have enough water for the ducks and now we have too much.” Stirling Sports Richmond owner Dave Heyward says they have been busy this week selling licences, decoys and ammunition, to duck hunters. “I think we have sold more licences this year and there’s always a bit of a rush in the last 10 days before the season opens. There seems to be quite a few ducks around so everyone’s hoping for a good opening.” Neil says Fish and Game rangers will be out in force on opening weekend,

checking that hunters had licences and were using the right ammunition. “We have a big team of honorary rangers and it will be quite a big operation. But we usually have a very high rate of compliance and don’t have too many problems.” Neil was also keen to avoid any conflict between hunters and cyclists on the section of the Tasman Great Taste Cycle Trail that runs alongside the Waimea Estuary, between the Ravensdown fertiliser works and Lansdowne Road. That section will be closed to cyclists, before 10am and after 4pm on Saturday and Sunday, because hunters will be shooting nearby.

Beating the ‘Tough Mudder’ A group of Nelsonians have crawled, climbed and sweated their way to glory at the Tough Mudder race in Auckland over the weekend. Twenty-two people from the Wairua Mud Rookies Obstacle Course Racing Club competed in the 20 kilometre obstacle course, and founder Sharon Martin says it was a huge weekend. “It was very long, it took us three and a half hours so that took a toll. But the camaraderie from the team definitely makes it easier, you know what everyone is good at and what their weaknesses are.” With seventeen obstacles in total, ranging from the “Electric Eel”, where participants crawled through muddy trenches with electric wires hanging from overhead,

to “Walk the Plank”, a leap from 20 metres high into cold muddy water, the course is not for the faint hearted, says Sharon. “We finished the course in just under four hours, but for us it was never about the time. It was about starting as a group and finishing as a group, we’re all feeling pretty pleased with our result”. The sport of obstacle racing, popular in the USA, Europe and Australia, has begun to grow a dedicated following throughout New Zealand. Sharon says the group are planning to attend more events like the Tough Mudder and welcome anyone to come along and join in the fun. If you want to join call Sharon on 027 693 4618 or join the group’s Facebook page.

Flooding in Richmond: I have made submissions on the flooding issue to the Engineering Services Committee Public Forum 9th April, and the TDC pre-submission question and answers session Wednesday 16th April. The event of flooding and its resulting traumas for so many people, is the single most important and biggest item that the Tasman District Council faces in this year’s round of AP Public Submissions and considerations. For far too long, very little has been done to address the problems, development has occurred at an alarming rate, very much to the detriment of our residents. Rates have doubled over the last 10 years, the list goes on. I invite residents who have been affected to come along to the TDC Annual Plan Submission meeting, 11am, May 2, 2014. Malcolm Saunders.

native forms of funding such as low interest debentures? We are confident it will be completed at some time in the future, but any undue delay is not only costing us in terms of missed economic opportunities, but also sees Nelson fall behind in the race for the tourist dollar as other regions complete their cycle trails and watch cyclists pedal past, smiling in anticipation of their next coffee. Yours faithfully, Tom and Yvonne Closey, Wakefield.



Cycle trail: Thank you for your recent reasoned article outlining four reasons the Tasman District Council should review their decision to cut $600,000 from the Tasman Great Taste budget. Having recently cycled the Otago Rail Trail we were mightily impressed by the number of business opportunities this has created in the area. Just the one company that organised our trip had over 400 cy-

clists booked for the Easter break and we heard that figure in early March. Entries made in the “ Comments” book at the various places we stayed confirmed that most visitors were from the Auckland area, Australia or Europe. Obviously these are the visitors we want to attract. People who will spend their money supporting local businesses and leave a very small environmental footprint, as opposed to the packaged bus tourists so evident in the Queenstown area. Our Great Taste Trail offers such scenic variety and with our more temperate year round climate it will attract much needed visitors in our quieter cooler months. It will be relatively easy to promote, not as an alternative to the Rail Trail, but as a another exciting cycling experience not to be missed, or perhaps as one of a series of trails that can be enjoyed by an overseas visitor wanting a safe off-road cycling holiday. We are surprised local hospitality and retail businesses are not making their voice heard more in the media. It will take pressure from all sections of our community, not just cyclists, to convince our council that a completed Great Taste Trail would rival the Abel Tasman in terms of economic benefit to the Tasman area. Perhaps we should be looking at some form of voluntary user-pays donation added to bike hire, ferry journey etc and/or a small toll on the rail tunnel would be acceptable to most users. Does the council need to look at alter-

Social dancers wanted Just a thought...

Getting men on the dance floor is proving to be a bit of a challenge for a local social dancing group. Quick-stepping dancers from the Nelson Social Dancing Club are looking for new members, but in particular men, to join the club to boost numbers of their already popular dances. The group get together once a month in Stoke to boogie to a live band and share a pot luck supper, and club secretary Tina Simpson says they’re keen for more people to come along.

The club covers a broad range of dances from ballroom, including the waltz, foxtrot and quickstep, through to rock’n’roll and latin. Everyone is welcome to join the Nelson Social Dancing Club, especially any men hidden out there who are eager to give it a go. If you are interested in joining or learning more about the club, you can contact the dancing club’s secretary, Tina Simpson, on 544 2324 or 021 177 4943.

Are you planning on doing some alterations to your home? You may be doing minor alterations to your kitchen, like a new bench top or replacing the existing kitchen cabinets with new ones. You may not be changing the plumbing but you are going to replace your electric cook top with a lovely new gas cooker. Where will the gas bottle live and are there rules around the installation of gas cookers? The answer is Yes, you will have to comply with the rules.



Property insights

24 hours

It is no longer legal to install a small gas bottle under the kitchen bench and close to electrical wiring. Your gas bottle will have to be vented and outside but not close to an opening window.

Lydia Heyward Licensed Real Estate Agent (REAA 2008)

Your gas plumber will issue you with a certificate when work is completed. It is very important that you keep this certificate, as when you sell your home the new buyer will want to know that the work has been signed off. No certification may cause a problem with insurance. If you have a property related question then e-mail me and I will see if I can help you.


Last week, Nelson Bays staff police caught up with some young men we believe to be responsible for a string of burglaries in our area. We caught up with the suspects after a series of incidents in which they failed to stop for police and endangered their own, and innocent members of the public’s, lives by fleeing. Whenever a fleeing driver’s behaviour is considered to be a risk to the general public, police will use a range of tactics, other than just chasing a fleeing driver, to stop the vehicle. Most often this will include laying road spikes which, as was the case in this incident, are very effective in slowing a vehicle in a safe manner. The spikes slowly deflate the vehicles tyres, which ensures the driver doesn’t suddenly lose control, and they will generally either give up the fight, or try to dump the vehicle and run. I cannot overstate what an irresponsible risk any fleeing driver is taking! What is really satisfying about this work is that firstly, no one was injured in the apprehension of these suspects and, secondly, over recent days we have been able to reunite people with thousands of dollars worth of stolen property. While it is not for me to comment on the potential punishment the courts hand out, what I do know is that, if convicted, they won’t be at liberty to continue offending. Finally, I’d just like to remind people to take a look at the Snap website ( where you can store an online asset list. This is really useful for the recovery of stolen property should you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being the victim of a burglary. Snap is a NZ Police initiative and the service is free.

Hundreds of locals went down to Wakefield Quay to check out the massive ship, and its overnight stay allowed its passengers to spend some time in the region. The ship is like a floating town, with six restaurants, grocery store, gym, golf simulator and putting greens, tennis court, jogging track, spa, swimming pool and cocktail lounge. The World was first launched in 2002. Photo: Jessie Johnston.

Ian Topp has enjoyed having a few chooks around for many years. When his locally produced food supply ceased, Ian tried another cheaper option and to his dismay, they stopped laying. This confirmed his belief that to have happy, healthy chickens you need to feed them a top quality product to keep egg production up. Murray Gibson is a well recognised and respected supplier of point of lay pullets to the Top of the South region, and when he suggested that Ian try his Alcala Poultry Feeds he gave it a go. Lo and behold – the chooks started laying again! Ian was so impressed with the product he became Murray’s local agent and sells Alcala Stock Feeds from his Brightwater property.

SPORT New adventure race


Richmond’s All gets tick of approval White heading home for training session

Simon Bloomberg

Senior reporter Reporter

Nelson’s top international adventure racers made light work of the inaugural Absolute Wilderness Adventure Race based in Murchison charging through the 100 kilometre course including a steep ascent of the Mole Tops in just under eight hours. Sophie Hart, Nick Ross and Brent Edwards won the threeperson teams race which included a rafting stage down the Buller River, two mountainbike stages and a rugged 20 kilometre alpine trek, in seven hours and 56 minutes. Ash and Naomi Whitehead and Dan Moore finished second in eight hours 46 minutes just edging out Josh Findlay, Ingrid Richter and Trevor Voyce by one minute after a sprint finish. Even race organiser and world champion adventure racer Nathan Fa’avae was impressed with the fastest teams after earlier predicting a winning time of around 11 hours. He joked that the winning team’s name, Not Normal, was apt after they completed a super fast trek to make a winning break on the chasers. “I was bit surprised at how fast they went but they had perfect

The quality of the women racers in the top three teams was underlined by the fact that their times were all faster than Chris Burr, Tim Peterson and Tim Pearson who won the men’s race in in 9 hours 41 minutes. Sophie’s speed on the trek was especially impressive and even her team-mate and partner Nick admitted he was “worried about keeping up with these guys”. The six-hour men’s adventure race was won by Woodies, Nigel Kelly, Malcolm Edridge

and Brad Wallace, who made an impressive adventure racing debut completing the course in 4 hours 46 minutes. Ben Moulan, Meg Bichard and Ed Kerly won the mixed adventure race in 5 hours 8 minutes while Waimea College students Nathan Sturrock, Jackson Carver and Lachlan Brownlie won the youth section in a fast 4 hours 50 minutes. Sixty-five teams competed in the race and Nathan says that has encouraged the organisers to make the Absolute Wilderness a regular event. He says next year’s race will again be held in Murchison which is a perfect place for adventure racing.

Rowers get selected for junior NZ team

Fishing with

Nelson Dawnbreakers Fishing Club The snapper still haven’t quite moved north even though the temperature has dropped, and are still around in Tasman Bay. There are a few large models still being caught in deeper water as well as fish up to 50cm being caught around Haulashore Island and the Boulder Bank. Cable Bay, Pepin Island and Delaware Bay are all still fishing well, anything from gurnard, blue cod to terakihi, kahawai and snapper. The sounds are starting to fish really well with some excellent big late autumn snapper being landed. Beatrix Bay has fired up and Kenepuru while still a bit hit and miss will produce some stunning fish throughout May. Unfortunately the spikey dogs have also moved into the neighbourhood and taken up residence, along with their partners in crime, the razor gang. If your gear can survive these unwanted pests there is definitely some great fishing on offer. The kingfish have not really arrived at Stephen’s passage just yet but make sure you are well prepared with your gear to take on these beasts of the sea. Get into your local tackle shop and spend as much money as you can afford to make sure your gear will enable you to land these very powerful fish. Groper have been caught in the last couple of weeks out off Stephens Island, and of course there are plenty of blue cod to be had anywhere along the coastline. With another week still left in the holidays, this can be a great time to get the kids out fishing. Even though the weather is colder it is generally much more settled with little wind and slight seas and can

Nelson Rowing Club’s successful season was capped off on Sunday with the announcement that two club members have been selected for the New Zealand Junior Rowing team. Waimea College’s Sean Ducray and Nelson College’s Olly Stephens will race in the quadruple sculls at the World Junior Rowing Champs in Hamburg, Germany in August. News of their selection came after a weeklong trial at Lake Karapiro. “We’ve all had a hard week,” says Sean. “It’s been pretty close; the competition was so close they were still testing us on Sunday morning. It was pretty hard work.” The NZ Junior team will assemble at Lake Karapiro at the Rowing New Zealand High Performance Centre for six weeks from June 8 to train as a squad. While they are training they will continue their studies at

be a great source of entertainment. Taking kids fishing doesn’t necessarily require a boat and can be done from a wharf or beach. It can be for as little or as long as you like depending on your patience and keeping the kids occupied. A hand line, a sabiki rig with a small sinker and bait bullets are all that is required and can be bought at the Warehouse. I’d recommend a knife and also small bucket, as little kids love to show off their catch when they get Round 12 home. Take the camera if you want to release the fish. Dick Baker 46/67 Kids usually aren’t too worried if they don’t catch anything but enjoy the process of trying to catch a fish.

Waimea Old Boys Rugby

Loss is tough to take for Waimea seniors Waimea Old Boys are looking for a more consistent performance when they take on Central in their Tasman Trophy rugby match at Jubilee Park this Saturday, after their frustrating 24-28 loss to Marist last week. Senior A coach Mark Milne says “we played awful for 40 minutes and very well for 40 minutes” against Marist and will need to perform for the full 80 minutes to win against Blenheim team Central in the second round of the Tasman Trophy. “We can’t afford to play below par for long periods like we did against Marist,” Mark says. “Our lack of consistency has been an issue throughout the year and we need to improve in that area.” Mark says he is expecting a tough battle up front this Sat-

urday with Central having a big, physical forward pack. He also predicts Central will be stronger than last year, after recruiting well during the offseason. “I don’t know too much about them but most of the Blenheim teams are usually tough up front. But I’m happy with the way our own forward pack is going and I’m sure they’ll be up for it.” Mark says the team is enjoying the Tasman Trophy phase of the competition because they play so many different teams. “It’s exciting because we get to play against different players and different teams which makes it more challenging. It can get a bit predictable playing the same teams all the time in a small competition,” he says. The game kicks off at 3pm.

Bs win first trophy, ready for the next Waimea Old Boys has already won its first trophy of the year, but its division two coach Wayne Bateman is hungry for more. The division two side claimed the first round trophy after going undefeated against the “town” teams. This weekend they’ll face the only other unbeaten side, and winner of the “country” round one trophy, Collingwood. The game will be the second of the combined division two competition after Waimea won its first against Marist in Ta-


hunanui on Saturday. Tries to Luke Thelin, Todd Brodie and two to lock Unag Penitani, gave Waimea a bonus point, while Taylor Simpson-Brown kicked one conversion in the 22-10 win. Wayne says the team has been performing well. “We’ve been good in the forwards and our backs have also been going well, so I’m pretty happy.” He says taking on a Collingwood team renowned for its strong pack will be a chal-


Andrew Board Editor lenge but he’s also weary of its backline. “Evidently they have a good backline so we’ll probably take them on up front and then look for holes out wide later on.” Waimea are hosting the heavy weight clash and Wayne says that will be a big advantage but he’s hoping for a good crowd to

help the side assert dominance over one of the top contenders for the title. “Playing over in Collingwood is really tough so we want to make it equally tough for them coming to play in Richmond. We want to come away with a big win. But we know it will probably be the toughest game of the year for us so far. Collingwood, Riwaka and Wanderers will be the teams to beat.” The game kicks off at 1.15pm at Jubilee Park this Saturday.

Nominations sought for Richmond Residential Density Advisory Group

Cycle trail closed for duck hunting season opening day

Ensuring there is a range of accessible and affordable housing forms in Richmond is a significant issue for the community. Would you like to play a part in considering how this is achieved? The Council is setting up an advisory group to facilitate community and professional involvement in the Richmond Residential Density project. The advisory group will assist in the consideration of where and how higher density housing in Richmond should be managed by the Council. Nominations for membership of the advisory group are being invited from people with an interest in Richmond’s housing market. The 14 member group will be made up of nine external representatives from relevant professional bodies, the community and Iwi together with one ward Councillor and four Council officers. The key document informing the advisory group is the Richmond Urban Density Investigation Report of 2012. A person seeking membership can be self-nominated or nominated by another person or organisation, however members will be appointed as individuals, not as organisation representatives. Nominees should fill out the online application or print out the pdf version and send it to the Council. Go to and search ‘Richmond Density’. Nominations must be received by 4.00 pm, Thursday 17 April 2014.

As part of the first stage of the process the Council is running a pre-engagement exercise.

The Council is interested in your thoughts. Responses are required by 30 May 2014 as part of the first part of the community engagement process. Submissions can be made either via the online submission form found on the Council’s website or by completing forms located at Council Service Centres and libraries.
