Celebrating a very Catholic diversity S

t Patrick’s School in Greymouth, with more than 16 nationalities represented in it’s community, this week celebrated with a Cultural Expo for the first time. Teacher Donna Ellis said staging the expo was a great way to celebrate the diversity of the school, demonstrating how the children “are so open to new cultures”. It had also been an opportunity for the school to delve into and learn of their whakapapa and the strands of their family history. The expo included national stands where pupils could get their ‘passports’ stamped in a virtual world tour, followed by a feast of foods from around the world in a shared lunch.

Displaying their Irish roots were, back left, Finn Irvine, Harlen Marsh, John Fahey, Jimmy McBride, Arthur O’Dea, and Noah Turnbill with, front left, Charlee Russell, Tui Irvine and Tessa Sweetman.

Proudly displaying their Filipino hertitage were Abraham Natiridad, left, BJ Barquie, and Nicole Pangilinan.

St Patrick’s Year 3 and 4 teacher Donna Ellis leads the way in a procession of cultures at the school.

New faces at Reefton supermarket by Claire Ward

Tony and Lea Lock outside Reefton Four Square

eefton’s Four Square Supermarket has been taken over by ex-Nelsonians, Lea and Tony Lock. They held a free meet and greet barbecue outside their store on November 22 to mark their arrival in town. Mr Lock was the grocery manager at a Nelson Pak n Save for 21 years, and Lea owned a fashion store in Queen Street, Richmond, but they decided it was time for a change and had been thinking about running their own supermarket for a while. “We stayed (in Nelson) for a couple of years after all our children had grown to make sure they were settled, then started looking for a supermarket to run,” Mr Lock said. “As Lea was brought up in Winton PICTURE: Claire Ward and likes the small town life, when we

drove into Reefton to have a look at the Four Square here, we smelled the coal smoke and knew this was the place we wanted to be.” At the moment the Locks are staying in the holiday home of a friend of a friend while the house they are going to be renting is being renovated. It has taken a little longer than expected. “We’re living our whole life out of a container still in Nelson. We’ve had to make a couple of quick trips back to get summer clothes and other bits and pieces, but it’s all good, as we both love Reefton and are really enjoying ourselves.” Already they have found a way to meet the locals. “After closing up, we’ve been parking ourselves at Dawsons to meet locals, but we have to admit we’re nearly falling asleep on the barstools,” Mr Lock laughed.

Westport Muddy Buddy The sixth annual Property Brokers Muddy Buddy event in Westport last week was destined to be a mud bath. Centred in the Orowaiti River Estuary, about 150 keen participants took part in teams to complete a 1.5km course in the Muddy Buddy event. Challenges along the way included zigzags, tyre obstacles,piggy backing, handstands, cargo nets, ditches, slides and tunnels. Event organiser Dale Ashworth of Sport Tasman said the aim of the day was to have ‘’heaps of fun and get as muddy as you can.’’ It was certainly the case with perfect weather and rain before hand to keep the mud soft. Messenger Buller photographer ROSE O’CONNOR was there.

And they were off, ploughing through the mud.

‘Mini Mouses’ Lyra Barlow-Waters and Nayoin Srun are delighted it is over.

Reefton community art expo T

PICTURE: Claire Ward

he Reefton i-Site Visitor Centre is hosting the Reefton Community Art Exhibition at present. It opened on November 15 and runs until Friday December 13. It showcases drawing, photography and painting with a lot of entries from Reefton and the surrounding districts on show this year.

A people’s choice vote is being held, so exhibition goers can vote for their favourite artwork. Visitors might also like to check out some of the dioramas the i-Site has recently acquired and are on display. The detail in them is quite extraordinary and shows many different historical aspects of New Zealand and West Coast life.

Foxtrots at Barrytown Barrytown Hall is hosting a young performer next Sunday who has been on a 20,000km tour of the country, accompanied by an up and coming West Coast female act. Zoe Ann Scott, aka Foxtrots, describes herself as an electric performer with an outspoken and often blunt songwriting style. The 19-year-old is in Barrytown as part of her Baby Y? single release tour, after solely focusing on writing and crafting an acoustic tour to bring to intimate venues around New Zealand. “Although I love Auckland, I’ve been getting a bit stir crazy. I can’t wait to be living out of the van again and meeting some beautiful people at my shows,” Scott says. Joined by young Hokitika performer Meg Theron, the December 8 gig at Barrytown is going to be filled with heartfelt tunes and stories to tell. Be quick to grab your tickets, and be introduced to New Zealand’s next era of female songwriters. Find your tickets here: https://www.undertheradar. co.nz/tour/11348/Foxtrots.utr

Paparoa Track beauty T

he new Paparoa Track officially opened last weekend for walkers and bikers who have already booked, but a difficult to fix slip means the middle section of the track will be closed until repairs can be made. The aim is to have the track fully open on December 22, depending on the weather. Department of Conservation Western South Island operations director Mark Davies, of Hokitika, said wild weather causing slips on tracks was relatively common in spring. “We are regularly undertaking repair work to tracks and structures on walks throughout New Zealand. It is just bad luck that we’ve had this happen right before opening.” So far 944 people are booked with 177 groups on the Paparoa Track during December. “We are giving all of them a full refund while offering them the opportunity to walk or cycle part of the track at either end. This recognises the cost and inconvenience they face because of the disruption.” For those already booked, the track will be open from both ends for overnight trips into either the Moonlight Tops or Pororari Huts. DOC booking services staff have been in touch directly with those who have booked to make alternative arrangements. A Geotech inspection has confirmed that the track has slumped down to bedrock. The section of affected track is 20m long, and due to its location on a steep side slope it will be difficult to fix, requiring re-benching and re-surfacing.

The track’s four suspension bridges were completed by Abseil Access. This winter they worked through snow to build the final bridge, at the waterfall beneath the escarpment. They finished it in just three weeks despite tough weather conditions. PICTURE: Abseil Access

The daily commute to work on the tops this winter was often through snow, rain or fog as construction crews worked to complete the track on time. Douglas Eibert is show on the escarpment. PICTURE: Curtis Moore

The new hydroslide and thermal pools were officially opened recently and provide another upmarket attraction for all the family at Hanmer Springs. The 13.5m slide and five new thermal pools are part of a $4.5 million development for the region and tourists and locals are enjoying the new attraction. The slide is named Conical Thrill following a public vote held earlier this year and the new pools are described as the “ultimate natural relaxation experience”. The new pools are situated in a range of settings which include native gardens and river and boulder terraces which provide the perfect relaxation back drop. One of the pools is sulphur and four are cascade pools, some sitting over 3m above the ground and a front pool providing access to the beach.

region has had two years of uncertainty and falling business confidence. The no-new mining announcement is tantamount to policy because stewardship land is being administered as if it is in place. Rather than open slather on stewardship land all we ask for is a case by case analysis, an approach that has worked well for decades. Put plainly, it’s not mining OR the environment, its mining AND the environment. Our 1500 mining jobs support so many community networks like schools, service clubs and voluntary organisations plus a myriad of industries. If we are to stop those industries, the Government must plan and deliver the pathway for the transition to alternatives. But it’s not only mining that is badly affected by this Government’s policies: the freshwater proposals will affect whitebaiting and spaghnum moss; the rejection of the Waitaha runof-river hydro scheme, when we need clean, renewable and reliable energy sources for our future. And all this is playing out in the area that was the birthplace of the Labour Party, with their original mission to look after workers’ rights. Coasters, hardworking heartland New Zealanders, are being told by the very person who is elected to reflect his community’s views back to Wellington that we are “resistant to change” and that we “have our head in the sand” is unbelievable. As your National list MP I have been appointed the spokesperson for West Coast Issues. I have your back, and won’t stab you in it.

Inshore finfish fisheries consultation Fisheries New Zealand has begun public consultation on a new draft National Inshore Finfish Fisheries Plan, which will guide the management of these important fisheries for the next five years. Director of Fisheries Management, Stuart Anderson says New Zealand’s inshore finfish resources are important . “They provide customary, recreational and economic benefits and managing these precious resources is important work. We want our inshore fisheries to remain healthy and sustainable, now and into the future,” he said. “The draft Plan aims to transform and improve how inshore finfish fisheries are managed, driving innovation and advancing ecosystem based fisheries management.” Fisheries management is changing. “It needs to provide greater participation and transparency in management and decision making, be more responsive and improve our environmental performance. Increased participation for tangata whenua and stakeholders at national, regional, and local levels is a central theme throughout the plan.” The plan focuses on five key areas: • Managing individual stocks — standardising approaches to monitoring and managing fish stocks

that share similar characteristics. • Enhancing benefits for all users — engaging sectors to customise the management of specific fish stocks to enhance the benefits they obtain. • Enabling integrated multi-stock management —in fisheries where several different fish stocks are caught together, we will manage those stocks in an integrated way. • Improved local fisheries — ensure tangata whenua and communities benefit from their local fisheries resources by engaging them in local area management. • Improving environmental performance —reducing the impacts of fishing and land-based effects to improve the health of the marine environment. “We all have a stake in the way our fisheries are manged and I encourage tangata whenua, stakeholders and members of the public to engage in the consultation process and put forward their views on the Draft Plan,” Mr Anderson said. The consultation documents and information on the process, including deadlines for submissions, can be found on Fisheries New Zealand’s website at https://www.fisheries.govt. nz/news-and-resources/consultations/ draft-national-inshore-finfish-fisheriesplan/

by Rose O’Connor in Westport For children sick of playing with their own toys, the Westport Toy Library offers an extensive range for hire at a minimal fee. The library co-ordinator Cathy Moynihan says a yearly family subscription of $20 and then a two week hire fee of no more than $3.50 per item is “a very good deal”. There were a great range of toys including dress-ups, puzzles, mini kitchens, ride ons and roller coasters available. Ms Moynihan said they also had a ‘toy trailer’ regularly loaned out for birthday parties and community events. The toy library was run by a small committee and operated under the umbrella of Buller REAP. Secretary-treasurer Carolyn Dolden said

Toy Library in Westport

Cathy Moynihan, back, with Martha Suleman as she explores a doll’s house at the toy library.

LORE BULLER

the group was part of the national toy library which secured funding through lotteries grants and allocated it. They also applied for external funds to cover administration costs and staff wages in order to be open twice a week. The library specialised in toys for children from newborns to ten-year-olds. However, it had recently purchased technical Lego and other toys for older children. Ms Moynihan said she and Lisa Callaghan curated the toys and shared the role of opening the library to its members. The library is located at the front of the Westport Deepsea Fishing School premises in the former nurses hostel on Cobden Street. It is open from 11am-1pm every Saturday and 10am-12pm each Wednesday.

Makayla and Martha Suleman enjoy the tandem tricycle available for hire.
