Drunk youths put top event in ‘jeopardy’ Underage drinking near Richmond’s biggest festival could have put the whole event in jeopardy, say organisers. There has been reports of teenage drinking near of the Last of the Summer Fare on Friday night, although organisers insist it did not come from stall holders. Dave Barrett, co owner of Sprig & Fern, says the Last of the Summer Fare on Friday night was a great event. However, he had heard that there were issues with teenagers loitering around the Richmond Mall car park and that alcohol could have been involved. Sprig & Fern were the major sponsors of the event and had a tent serving beer and wine. Spirits were not sold at the event and Dave believes the young people had access to “alco-pops” prior to the event. “We were taking our re-

sponsibility seriously when serving alcohol,” says Dave. Dave says as far as he was aware the young people didn’t cause trouble in Sundial Square but he had heard that a kid had to have their stomach pumped. St John Nelson operations team leader Gary Tobin says the work load for his staff at Last of the Summer Fare was normal and there were no issues but his staff had passed on to him that there were a large number of teenagers present at the event. “Two teenagers were treated with altered levels of consciousness due to alcohol sourced elsewhere,” he says. However, Pauline Farley, one of the organisers of the event, says a 15 yearold was taken to hospital unconscious and even though the teenagers involved in the incident were not involved in the

Summer Fare attracts massive crowd to Richmond Despite problems with teenage drinking close to the action, organisers of the Sprig & Fern Last of the Summer Fare say the event was a success. Pauline Jennings of Drycrust, who had the tender to organise the event for Richmond Unlimited, says although there

were issues with young people drinking, they did not source their drink from the festival. Medieval games kept the children amused on Friday evening while music, food and beer and wine were on hand to please the rest of the 3000 locals who attended.

“I’ve had a good summer. We went away; we had a lovely trip to the West Coast, which was a highlight.”

“Surviving. We’ve had it much better than other people in New Zealand, like with Christchurch. We live in a marvellous town.”

“I went to Opua in the Bay of Islands on holiday. It was very summery. I’m quite sad we’re going into winter.”

“I’ve had a fun summer, but with the kids it’s always fun. We’ve been swimming on the beach and enjoying the Nelson summery weather.”

* Major site alterations are underway at the Richmond Resource Recovery Centre in Beach Road. The first stage involves relocation of the reuse shop, operated by the Kahurangi Employment Trust, while site drainage improvements, including the introduction of low impact stormwater systems, will improve stormwater management. The work will be staged over a six month period to ensure minimum disruption to users. Roading changes will be clearly signposted as they occur.


* Richmond police dealt with 15 disorder calls over the weekend. This does include multiple calls to the same incident, but all were related to drunken behaviour by young people. “That’s a lot for us over the weekend,” says officer in charge of Waimea John Price. “These people were acting out of character because of alcohol,” he says. The incidents occurred at various locations around Richmond.

Trolley quick, but not quite quick enough Despite the temperamental weather on Saturday, the Robertson’s Trolley Derby went off without a hitch. But unfortunately Richmond local Ronan Stilwell, who was last year’s Zoomers category winner, wasn’t able to secure back-to-back wins. More than two thousand people were estimated to have watched the iconic Nelson derby, which attracted a record number of entrants. “The mixed looks of excitement, freedom and adrenalin on the kids’ faces as they went down the hill were priceless, and the crowd’s support was fantastic, as usual,” says Gilbert Robertson from Robertson Chartered Accountants, sponsors of the event.

festival, she says they could have difficulty securing a liquor license next year. “It has marred the event. We’re going to have to be much more stringent on conditions, we may even have to source security but this makes the event much more expensive to run and could put it in jeopardy,” she says. The event, which has become a popular part of the Nelson, and in particular Richmond, calendar could therefore be cancelled. But Richmond Unlimited member and Tasman District councillor Judene Edgar says it would pre-emptive to say the festival may struggle with liquor licenses in the future. “This is a wakeup call, this sort of thing doesn’t just happen in the big cities, it’s right here in central Nelson. There isn’t just one fix.” Despite what he heard after the event, Dave says the night was a brilliant success and he thought everyone had a good time. “I think Richmond is grown up enough to hold these sorts of events, so it would be a shame to see it go.”

Local fire units have busy week A brisk walk up Dellside Reserve early on Sunday morning did not amuse Richmond fire fighters. Richmond fire units were called to a structure fire on Sunday morning in the reserve after the station received a call just before 5am, informing them a long drop was on fire. By the time fire officers had tramped up the hill the loo was well alight. Chief fire officer Ralph Lonsdale says the loo was not very big and made of fibreglass. “It’s non-reparable and now there’s a hole in the ground.” Ralph says this is the second time in a number of years the long drop has been burnt down. He also says the fire is treated as suspicious but council have now taken over. “They may pursue this with the police,” says Ralph. The Brightwater Rural Fire Force attended a car

crash last Wednesday evening in the Aniseed Valley. Police and police dogs also attended the scene after the occupants of the vehicle fled. The crash wasn’t major according to rural fire officer Steve Foote but after an extensive search of the area was undertaken the call out turned in to a manhunt. Officers believe alcohol was involved and the car was stolen. “Everyone was found and are now being dealt with by police,” says Steve. Private properties were searched in the hunt with several crews attending the call out. “It really hits home that drink driving is not a good thing, it then starts to involve people in the community,” says Steve. Fire officers and police were on the scene quickly, resulting in everyone being safe at the end of the day.

HUGE PUMPKIN: Tyler, John and Anika McKay of Appleby were thrilled to win the Club Mapua pumpkin competition over the weekend for the biggest pumpkin. John’s pumpkin weighed in at a whopping 497 kilograms, easily the biggest fruit in the country. The home-grown pumpkin beat the previous national record by nearly 80kg. John says he and his family are now hooked on pumpkin growing and will certainly be back for next year’s local competition. The prize wasn’t something to be sneezed at either. John won a can of Speight’s per pumpkin kilogram, which will take a while to get through. “I’m not much of a drinker,” says John. The pumpkin seeds will now be used to create the seedlings for next year’s competition. Photo: Teresa Hattan.

Richmond store Eyebright has been a benefactor of the soon-to-be shot film, The Hobbit. Eyebright owner Adrienne Owen says their relationship with the film industry started three years ago when they were asked to supply spent corn stalks for a production. Over the past three years, the companies of the Mirimar based film industry have become regular Eyebright customers. The bulk of the requirements have been for artificial flowers and foliage, though most recently Eyebright sent gourds and Turks Turbans to Hobbiton. Turks Turbans are type of pumpkin with a tough hide.

Raeward Fresh haven’t moved

The staff at Raeward Fresh in Champion Rd, near the Aquatic Centre, have fielded a few phone calls from the public asking why they have moved. This created a bit of puzzlement until they noticed that their recent advertisement had been placed on top of our own Waimea Weekly ad promoting the fact that they had moved. Rest assured, the Raeward fresh team have not, and will not be relocating and are still open seven days a week. Manager Wayne Diedrichs insists now is a great time to call in to their store and check out the huge amount of locally grown produce. “We’ve got apples and pears coming direct in bins STILL HERE: Wayne Diedrichs from Raeward from the orchards – you can’t get fresher! And Fresh almost needed to tear out his hair after we’ve even had feijoas from a lovely Richmond lady who has a couple of trees in her back yard. fielding calls asking if they had moved. You can’t get more local than that!”

Richmond store first in South Island to be re-branded An aim to provide a better service for loyal customers has seen a local store change its ways. Richmond’s Payless the Stock Liquidator on the corner of Gladstone Rd and Queen St has reopened its doors after renovations. The store, formally known as Payless Plastics, was re-branded to reflect the fact that only 25 percent of their goods were plastic. John Arbuckle, owner of the store, says he has rebranded so the store can go back to basics. The Richmond store is the third in the country and the first in the South Island to undergo the transformation. The shop has experienced huge changes over the past month with manager Wendy Hunt saying it is now brighter, more open and with a fantastic range of products. “This includes a great range of consumables, but we are still stocking the best products from the past, all at fantastic, competitive prices.” Payless now have bargain bins with different price points starting at $2, where customers can rummage through and find a bargain. Wendy says the feedback to date has been great. “Customers like the look of the new shop and they love the new prices.” Wendy and the rest of the staff look forward to seeing both new and existing customers.

Better work stories not needed for Richmond cop Teresa Hattan From dodging bullets in the Armed Offenders Squad to working overseas and most recently as Richmond’s top cop, Senior Sergeant John Price seems to have done it all. John, who has been in the force for 35 years, will soon be leaving his post in Richmond to take the next step in his long policing career. “I always said if I stopped enjoying going to work I’d do something else. It’s not all about catching bad people.” John’s first assignment as an officer was in Nelson in 1976. He and the other policeman accompanying him were the first officers in Nelson to have the blue uniforms. John then moved into stints in Ashburton and Greymouth before he was back in sunny Nelson. John’s entire working career has been spent in the South Island, so he says he is definitely a mainlander. Being a sectional Sergeant has been a highlight for John over the years. “Those are the guys that do the 24 hour policing, you work 24 hour rosters and you have a team of about six Constables, emergency response and that sort of thing.” He says working with young police officers has also been a highlight. He has also been lucky enough to work overseas in the Solomon’s and the Philippians over the years but he has certainly enjoyed his 12 years in Richmond.

But the town has progressed a lot during this time. “When I first came here we operated out of an old house which is now part of the car park of the mall.” John says it has been good to get the police station they have now. He was quite involved with this, right from advocating for it through to the design and building. Richmond is a great community to work in according to John. “I think there’s a lot to be proud of in terms of how the community works and the low crime rate they enjoy.” The move into a job in the city will be different, but John says he’s quite relaxed about the change. “I think the changes have quite a lot of potential to enhance the service to the community and I guess that’s what policing and change is all about, trying new things and seeing if they work. “The ability to provide a greater level of 24 hour service across Nelson, including Richmond, is a good thing.” Being a response manager in the city will see John manage the 24 hour response throughout Nelson and Richmond. The role of officer in charge of Waimea will now become obsolete. “There will be a Sergeant based here but there won’t actually be an OC, but at the end of the day I’ll be available as will the other senior sergeants based in Nelson. “We’ll be policing the whole area so if people have issues or concerns HIGHER PLACES: Officer in charge of Waimea John Price will soon there will be people they be leaving Richmond Police Station.

The beginning of Washbourn Gardens Richmond historian Peter Kearns investigates the Washbourn Gardens dwelling. This dwelling now occupied by Nelson Solicitor Nick Moore was originally built by Mr H O Washbourn, some time prior to his early death in 1927. Records state that Dr Washbourn who was born in Onekaka Golden Bay, arrived in Richmond in 1919 during which year he bought Hillcrest Private Hospital. It was here that he established a specially equipped building for electrical treatment, mostly for clients who were crippled with Rheumatism. Following is death in 1927 the Washbourn Dwelling as we see it today was sold to a Mr Disher - who had been the farm manager for the then attached farm land that existed. The land was separated from the house with the latter being sold to Doctor W H Currie who had arrived from Hamilton. Doctor Currie too died at an early age in 1942 and the medical practice he had established was serviced by Doctor D C Low, a well known practitioner who as it turned out was one of few doctors left in Nelson at the time due to the onset of the second world war. This was a great relief for Mrs Currie and especially generous as the assistance was with Doctor Low also having to maintain the servicing of his own practice back in Nelson. Mrs Currie shifted to a new residence in Wilkes Street, I believe in 1961, at which point son Ted assumed occupancy of the Washbourn House, whilst his twin brother Hugh moved to a home in Crescent Street. Ted Currie later sold the property to the Richmond Borough Council and at which time the dwelling under separate title was sold to the present owner Mr Nick Moore. The separate titled land portion is what we know today as Washbourn Gardens, this has proved to have been a prudent invest-

ment championed by the late Richmond councillor Mr Bill Wilkes. Doctor Currie operated his medical practice from here as well as his place of residence. His wife Mrs Currie was a well known and respected school teacher, holding teaching positions at Richmond School and Nelson College for Girls. Doctor Currie was also well known for having a swimming area in Aniseed Valley named after him.

This new system comes with a lifetime warranty on all paints applied but that will never be a problem on modern vehicles according to Brad Kelling. “It has been getting more and more difficult to get colours and matchings right as we were using solvent products against factory water based paint and that always effected colours and Brad & Marney Kelling from Brad’s Smash textures. Now the matching Repairs in Wakatu Industrial Estate is perfect and the paint is as tough, if not tougher than the old solvent based. In many cases we are using the exact same paint as the vehicle manufacturer” he says. PPG Industries NZ has worked with Brads and been instrumental in introducing the new eco friendly paint system. Brad and Marney admit that while the customer will have little to do with this system their insurance companies do, and as they point out the individual customers can now nominate which repairer should fix their car after an accident. “At the end of the day our high quality workmanship has been up graded, and our paint system is not only better and tougher it’s got that very real eco friendly angle. As parents of two young children we are actually very happy with what we have done as a company to ensure their future” says Marney. “It was a big move and commitment for us and I know we have made the right decision. After all, water based paint on vehicles isn’t a new thing. It has been around for twenty years, but most of us never knew”. Brads Smash Repairs are available for any questions the public or the insurance industry may have and welcome any enquiry.

While dying, this prince of peace – who in the committed against them. This prince visited them and he lived among beginning of time created all things and without them.

At Wakefield Preschool we value children’s early years. Our team is dedicated to giving each child support and guidance as they develop and grow into young children ready to enter the school environment. Our team of teachers work together following the children’s interests, while ensuring variety each day to support their strengths and developmental stages. The team is supportive and enjoys challenges they face and share these with each other, and the children. We all grow together alongside the children as we develop new skills and also learn new things the children may introduce to us. We understand the need for children to be ready for school when they leave our centre and with this we have a transition to school program daily. This enables the children to gather together for a mat time and then we focus on literature and numeracy, preparing the children for their entrance into primary school. Our teacher responsible for this has been working with new entrants for many years and is able to bring knowledge that is vital to this program operating to its best potential. Our four year-olds recognise their achievements and are able to be rewarded through praise and encouragement. Each teacher is able to bring a little of themselves into their daily work, which fits together perfectly like a jigsaw puzzle creating our caring and nurturing environment. This gives us great satisfaction in knowing we are doing all we can to support our children and give them the best possible education and care available to them. Together with teachers and the children we guide, support and encourage each other and have a wonderful time while developing a meaningful and educational curriculum for each and every one of us.

Bowls not just a sport for the youngsters

ROLL UP: Richmond Bowling Club president Richard Newport has been involved in the club seven years but has only been president for one. Photo: Teresa Hattan.

Richard Newport was assigned the role of club president because there wasn’t a whole heap of other options. The Richmond local has been involved in the bowling club for seven years but a year ago was appointed president for want of anyone else. Richard’s bowling habit started off with the indoor variety once his children left home. “I was one of those ones that always worked six days a week. My wife played for a long time but we first started off playing indoor.” Richard says the best part about being involved in bowls, and the Richmond Bowling Club in particular, is how friendly the sport it. It’s this social aspect that keeps Richard going back for more. “There are a lot of us there that never aspire, particularly when you start playing bowls in your 60s, we certainly don’t aspire to represent Nelson or New Zealand. We play for the fun of it and regard winning as a bonus.” Richard says bowls is like any other sport and community or-

ganisation, numbers are dropping “and there are a smaller and smaller percentage of those members or players who are prepared to do any work, so the Jo Blogs’ are down at the bowling club or wherever just about every day.” Despite this, Richard says it is rewarding being involved in the running of the club and it’s great to be involved. “I wouldn’t play anywhere else. It’s a good friendly club but like most other sporting clubs we struggle to make ends meat.” In attempt to draw in new members the club have run a league programme for the past two years. This business house competition sees games being played on a Tuesday night for six weeks prior to Christmas and six weeks after. “It’s been very successful, had two full greens for the second year in a row. It’s absolutely magic.” Richard says the club find they get a lot of players who have had to give up the game of golf. “Bowling is not quite as strenuous as golf is muscle wise.”

Waimea Old Boys 2011

What a weekend! Waimea teams whallop Stoke at Jubilee Andrew Board

LOOSE GRASP: Stables Waimea div 1 hooker Todd Bavin escapes the grasp of Stoke lock Ben Douglas. Photos: Andrew Board.

How good was that? Waimea Old Boys division 2 rugby side set up a glorious day at Jubilee Park last Saturday with a massive and humiliating 73-6 win over Stoke before the division 1 side inflicted similar pain to the clubs biggest rivals on the same pitch. Stables Waimea’s top team ground its two-time defending champion opponents, Stoke, with physical forward play and an impeccable kicking display by first-five Andrew Leatham. Stoke had few answers and when they did Waimea hit straight back to continue its domination. The win comes after a close loss to Nelson in its first game of the year last weekend. Andrew kicked an impressive 21 points and dotted down for a try in the first half. While winger Trael Joass, who was plying his trade for Waimea College last season, scored an impressive solo try, darting down the sideline before wrong footing his marker and diving in the left hand corner. The final score was 35-13. It sets Waimea up for a big season, gaining plenty of confidence and getting the win without some of its biggest names, including Tasman Mako’s Kaide Whiting and Hamish Cochrane, both of whom are injured. This week the side heads to Cooks Reserve to take on the newly promoted Riwaka, a team that lost to Stoke in the first week of competition but bounced back with a win over Marist last Saturday. Meanwhile, Superliquor Waimea division 2 stormed to its massive win over Stoke with a somewhat embarrassing 12 try haul. Among the try scorers were Todd Brodie, Mike Bushel, James Lailvanu (2), Ben Max, Joe Higgins, Ben Jeffery (2), Mike Bates (2), Mitchel Bateman(2). Brad Crisp, Joe Higgins and Jamie Galloway all kicked goals. The division 2 team is also playing in Riwaka this weekend, kicking off at 1.15pm.

WE WANT YOU: Waimea Old Boys women’s rugby player Gemma Milne is on the hunt for more players for the champion team.

Waimea women’s team wants YOU

Ever thought about playing women’s rugby? Now is the time to give it a go, says Waimea player Gemma Milne. The team, which won the competition last year, is several players short of a full squad after some of its player moved away at the end of last season. Gemma says women or girls are welcome and playing experience is not necessary. “We are a social team, enjoy a good time, but we definitely like to win.” The team is coached by Tony Healy and trains every Monday and Wednesday night, with games on Saturday afternoons. If you are keen to play rugby this year, or keen to hear more about it, give Gemma a call on 021 307 423. The season kicks off on April 30.

Three gold medals a surprise for masters athlete at nationals Encouragement from her grandson saw Mary Eggers secure a third gold medal at the recent national Masters Games in Wanganui. The Richmond resident competed in the games last month in road races in the 60 plus category. Mary and her husband started competitive walking a while ago but they hadn’t been to a masters games before. After realising they would miss the South Island games coming to Nelson in October Mary decided she would enter the national games. The Waimea Harriers member says walking can be as competitive as you want it to be. “When you get to the start line you’ve got no idea who’s in what age group so you just go and do your best and that’s

what I was trying to do.” “We’ve got competitive streaks in all of us but at different levels and as soon as you put those walking shoes on and you get to the start line of a competition, the competitive spirit takes over and away you go.” Mary says she always tries to go out and do the best she can, but for others they use the competitions as a chance to go for a casual stroll, which is fine. Mary competed in three different distances including the five kilometre, 10km and the half marathon. “There was also a six kilometre cross country but I didn’t want to take part in that so I just did the road walking.” Mary says she was very pleased to come away with three gold medals for all events she entered. She also completed a personal best time for her five kilometre race, crossing the finish line in 32 minutes and 21 seconds. She did the 10km in one hour, eight minutes and one second, which is her second best time and the half marathon was com-

pleted in two hours, 29 minutes and 30 seconds, also a second best time. “I was fairly pleased; my training had obviously paid off.” Mary trains by walking the streets of Richmond and the odd hill. She tries to go for walks around three nights a week and she tries to get two good walks in over the weekend of a longer distance. Mary says discipline is what is needed it you want to be competitively involved in walking. “You just make it part of your routine, if you want to do something you do it. You can fit it in.” Competing at the masters games was very friendly according to Mary, and now Nelsonians have the chance to get involved when the games come here in October. “I’d encourage anyone to go and because it’s coming to Nelson everybody should do it, give something a go.” There is a wide variety of sports to get involved with, so visit to find a sport to enter, Mary says it is well worth it.
