‘We’ve got nowhere left to turn’ Mike Corkhill breathed a wispy sigh of relief last week as emails, phone calls and bank donations rolled in. They showed that people cared. The stress and strain of living with a condition that will kill him, and leave his five kids without a father, hasn’t made for too many good night sleeps over the past few years. But the support of the community has already given him hope that he will be

able to raise the $100,000 needed to get a new set of lungs and a new lease on life. Mike’s story featured in last week’s Nelson Weekly and since then he’s had offers from people to help run a quiz night, free product from businesses for him to raffle off and close to $2000 deposited in a bank account aimed at helping him raise the money before Christmas. But he needs plenty more community support.

TWO identical homes N

His children, the youngest just nine, walked up Richmond’s Queen St last week with a clipping of the Weekly article asking businesses for prizes for a quiz night. Mike says he’s feeling overwhelmed. “It’s been really great and we’ve had a heap of feedback and for the first time in a while I feel like we’re not alone in this.” But the journey has only just begun and Mike says he’s turned to the community

because he simply “has nowhere else to go”. “This is my last hope, we’ve spent all our savings on this and we’re really hoping the community can help my family out and help me get the lungs I need to live.” Mike’s eldest daughter Cassie has set up a Givealittle page where people can donate, CorkillAppeal, or you can contact them at

The absurdity of Nelson’s air quality rules is becoming more apparent as stories of frustrated Nelsonians come forward. The latest is at one Tasman St property, where neighbours Melissa Short and Barbara Ferguson are separated by one concrete wall, and while one is allowed to use their wood burner, the other isn’t. For those campaigning for Nelson City Council to relax its current Nelson Air Quality Plan, it’s a perfect example of bureaucracy gone mad, but the chair of the planning and regulatory committee says it’s unlikely any changes will be made before this winter. Councillor Brian McGurk will chair a meeting on Thursday, May 8, where the findings of a review into the current rules around wood burners will be discussed. Those opposed to the current rules say change needs to be made now. For Melissa Short frustration has led her

Andrew Board Editor to start a petition against the current rules and says, as a young mother, she’d prefer to heat her home with wood, as opposed to the heat pump which she currently has. “This area is a clean air shed and has never posed a problem. These rules are punitive. People are really struggling and I look over at my next door neighbour, who is feet away, and she’s loading firewood.” Melissa moved into the house last December with her two children, aged 5 and 3, and when the fire in her home was already capped. She says she’s called councils across New Zealand and can’t find one other that would impose regulations like that on a clean air shed. “Anywhere

in New Zealand you can upgrade your wood burner, irrespective of the pollution levels, that’s the current status quo.” During her interview with Nelson Weekly, Melissa watched as Barbara had a trailer load of firewood delivered. She says she’s happy for Barbara but can’t understand why her wood burner can’t be upgraded to a clean air burner and be allowed to heat her home. Her petition has attracted hundreds of signatures and the support of councillor Tim Skinner who says he’ll be urging his colleagues to relax the rules as soon as possible. He says he’s heard stories of people turning off their heater in the coldest weeks of winter so they can afford groceries. “It brings a tear to my eye and these families are snuggling together under a blanket to stay warm. It’s not right.” To sign Melissa’s petition, visit www.

Cost of storm hits home owners Locally Owned and Operated

The Easter storm that hit Nelson and felled so many trees is now hitting home owners in the pocket, with many having to fork out to have those trees cut and removed. Tahunanui woman Judy Bartsch says she was overseas when a tree on her property fell in the storm, smashing her fence and falling in her neighbour’s back yard. She assumed insurance would have her covered, but was shocked to find out it only covered the damage, meaning the removal of the giant tree was at her cost. “I thought my insurance would have covered the whole thing, until I rang them. I was really surprised because I thought I had a really good house policy,” she says. Head of corporate affairs for State and AMI insurance companies, Craig Dowling, says their home policies only cover costs of removing a tree that has damaged a fence so that the fence can be repaired. They do not cover any additional removal costs that are not necessary for repairs. Craig says they are processing claims from the storm damage in Nelson but it was too early to tell how many claims had been made.

Although the wind was an extreme weather event, Nelson arborists say that the damage could have been limited if property owners had maintained their trees properly. Abseil Tree Care owner John Bush, says many of the trees that damaged private property had not been pruned or had been pruned incorrectly, making them vulnerable to the wind. “A lot of what we have been seeing could have been avoided,” John says. Treescape’s Nelson business manager Lian Polak agrees that a lack of maintenance on trees, especially when they are young, increases the risk of trees being damaged by the wind. “It’s not just because trees are large that makes them prone

to wind damage,” Lian says. “Some of the biggest trees are the heritage trees and they didn’t get damaged because they have been well maintained.” Aborists have been busy since the storm with John saying they were “flat out” with emergency call-outs immediately after the storm, “working into the night” on Thursday and have subsequently been on clean-up duty around the district. Nelmac employs six full-time arborists who have worked long days since the storm attending to hundreds of damaged trees. Aborists say the majority of fallen trees are being chipped into garden mulch, although some “useable” timber is being sent to sawmills for processing.

Maitai river is top issue griffiNS TUrNS 150: Iconic biscuit maker, Griffins, turned 150 years old yesterday. Griffins was founded by John Griffin in Nelson in 1864. It was originally a flour and cocoa mill on Alton St before expanding into biscuits and confectionery. The Nelson factory was destroyed by fire in 1895 so a new factory was built on Nile St with money raised from going public on the stock exchange. CoMEDiANS CoMiNg To TowN: 7Days star Paul Ego is coming to Nelson for a high-octane two-hour standup comedy showcase. Paul is hosting the 2degrees Comedy Convoy with new and used, finely tuned, well-oiled international and kiwi comedians touring nationwide. The show is at the Theatre Royal on the May 13 MorE CANCEr opS for NElSoN: Nelson patients are set to benefit from a $3.5m national boost in funding for colonoscopies, says health minister Tony Ryall. A colonoscopy can identify whether a person has cancer or precancerous growths called polyps. “This boost will help Nelson Marlborough DHB deliver up to 60 extra colonoscopies, for patients most in need,” he says.

More than 200 submissions were collected for Nelson City Council’s draft annual plan, with feedback on the Maitai River the hottest topic. Consultation on the draft closed last week and mayor Rachel Reese says the process is a “tangible way” people can get their

views across. Sixty of those submitters will speak about their submission, starting next Tuesday, and the plan will be adopted on June 19. In total 215 submissions were received, popular issues were, in order, Maitai River (24), the modellers pond in Tahunanui

(22), Trafalgar Centre (22), velodrome at Saxton Field (21), Brook Motor Camp (20), Nelson School of Music (19), Bank Lane canopy (19) and walkway/cycleway routes (15). The annual plan will come into effect on July 1.

More street art for Nelson

The blank walls of Nelson CBD are slowly being replaced by the colourful art works of talented artists. The latest mural to hit Nelson streets was painted by internationally regarded urban artist Elliot O’Donnell, known as Askew One, after Gigatown Nelson supporters won the mural in a Chorus Gigatown mini competition. Nelson City councillor Gaile Noonan says she fully supported seeing more street art come on to Nelson streets and that Nelson has always had a reputation for being a street art city. “Nelson is a natural place for art to come out of and I’m sure we’ll see lots of it in the future.”

Elliot O’Donnell, known as Askew One, completes his street art piece on Morrison Square on Selwyn Place last week. Left is artist Elliot, with Rex Johnston and Sofie Hobbs. Photos: Jessie Johnston. Gigatown is a competition between 50 towns in New Zealand to gain the fastest internet speed in the Southern Hemisphere and now, thanks to this latest win, Nelson has moved into second place. The competition called for campaigners to create a 30-second video that showed what

high speed internet would do for their cities. Nelson’s winning video was created by Gigatown Nelson campaigner Michelle Lang and can be seen on the Gigatown website. Karen Lee, from the Gigatown Nelson group, says they wanted to tell the story of the increasing links between online

and real life communities. “It’s an environment that children thrive in, and they will benefit from the opportunities new technology brings.” Rex Johnston, one of the two children who modelled for the mural, says he’s extremely excited at having his face up for the public to admire.

Boxing club hosts father/ son night

Around 30 fathers, sons, Makos and familar faces from last year’s Fight 4 Victory fundraiser, worked up a sweat together at the Victory Boxing Club’s first father/son event on Friday night. Boxing club programme director Paul Hampton is hoping the event will become a regular on the club’s ever-expanding events calendar. It gives families a chance to work out together in a fun but structured environment. Kids as young as five through to grandfathers in their 60s took part and half a dozen members of the Tasman Makos were on hand to help the youngesters as well. Paul says the club has experienced massive growth since it moved into its new premises ten months ago and the father/son event is just another string to its bow. “It wasn’t just dads and their

Tuesday 22 April: Home educator Jill Riddle is still waiting to learn the total amount of money required to repair her property after a truck smashed into the front yard on April 16. She said that, because the crash coincided with the recent floods, the insurance company has been inundated with claims so nothing has happened yet. Jill has relocated her children’s play area away from the road and would like to thank her friends, neighbours and the local police and fire services for their efficiency and thoughtfulness. Tuesday 22 April: After having a massive tree fall through their home during the recent storm, the Hobbs family are now on track to getting their lives back to normal. The tree crushed Jules Hobbs bedroom and that of his daughter, but their house has now been made safe and water-tight over the last few weeks. They are living in a long-term rental home until further notice and are beginning to deal with the insurance company and assessors. Jules’s daughter Sofie has had other things on her mind though after she was picked to be one of the models for the new Gigatown mural.

Flippin’ good way to spend the school holidays Far from being bored during the school holidays, a pair of brothers have found a new activity to keep them busy – beach hopping. Macca, 11 and pictured right, and Coby Springer, 9, saw a You Tube clip of people jumping off halfburied swiss balls and decided to give it a go. Their dad Steve made a quick trip to town to buy a ball and then took the boys and their mates to Tahuna beach for go. Soon they were “back-flipping”, “superman-ing” and “double twisting” their way to a new way to keep busy. Their exploits attracted plenty of attention and soon dozens of kids were lining up for a crack. Macca says its great fun. “It’s better than what we thought, you can do what you want and it doesn’t hurt as much.” Coby says he likes doing the flips in the air and that they make up their moves on a trampoline at home before coming to the beach to perfect them.

Symphony Orchestra performs in Cathedral

Jessie Johnston Reporter

The Nelson Symphony Orchestra delighted the ears of Nelsonians when they performed at the Cathedral on Saturday evening. The concert was named ‘H’ because it featured the music of composers Humperdinck, Hummel, Handel and Haydn, and featured solos by two international performers, Alan K Gray and Raffaele Bandoli. Alan K Gray came out from England in 2009 to take up the position as cathedral musician. He retired from the job in January after five years and is now freelancing as a music teacher and soloist. Saturday was the first time Alan had played with the Nelson Symphony Orchestra after being invited to perform with them. “This is quite unusual for me,” says Alan.

Handel wrote the set of organ concertos for a little chamber organ. A small organ, not the grand cathedral organ.” Alan began his ava musical career at ilab le n 14 with the piano ow and made it into

the Royal College of Music with the piano and clarinet, taking up the organ later on. “I’ve always wanted to play and I began playing by ear and memory until my parents were persuaded that I needed proper instruction,” says Alan. Now he is involved with teaching students of his own and taking the Chroma Chamber Choir which is performing this Saturday at the Cathedral. When it comes to musical inspiration Alan looks first and foremost to his colleagues. “Music is a collaborative thing, even when you’re a soloist. It’s your colleagues who are inspirational because every day you learn something from somebody, even from the children that I teach, actually.” Even though Alan has retired from the Cathedral he is still not ready to stop working, and would love to see a young Kiwi become his successor. More than 300 people attended the concert on Saturday, one of five that the 46-strong symphony orchestra performs each year.

The Harbour Master’s


• In the past few weeks we have seen it all. Fruit ships, car carriers, container vessels, fishing vessels, jet skis, houseboats and the cruise ship ‘the World’. • I am sure it hasn’t escaped your attention that winter approaches rapidly and conditions can deteriorate very quickly. It is my personal belief we are lucky we have not had a fatality in the region this summer. Boats have upturned, burned, cast adrift, and sunk. Have all these incidents been bad luck, bad management, bad decision making or something else? • I am unfortunate enough in my boating experience to have been in a vessel fire, a sinking, and on a disabled craft and if I am honest enough about it, I have no one to blame for it but myself. • How well do you know the risk? There a many thousands of people who go boating here but do they really appreciate the risk? Most of us don’t until something goes wrong. • How do we prevent it going wrong? Risk assessments - smart ones. Know the boating rules. Know the boat code. Complete a safe boating course. Dave Duncan, Harbour Master/Marine Operations Manager.

Nelson needs plan for retirees Locally Owned and Operated

A plan to help Nelson deal with an increasing number of retired people is being worked on today. For decades Nelson has been a popular place to retire and by 2025 around 26 per cent of the population is expected to be retired, putting a huge strain health services. So today around 40 organisations

that work with retired folk are meeting to discuss a strategic plan. The issue was highlighted last year when Nelson Weekly reported the comments of the medical officer of health, Dr Ed Kiddle, who said the ageing population was the region’s number one health issue. Grey Power president Neville Male said at

the time that leading work on a strategic plan was the organisations number one issue for 2014. Neville says the purpose of the plan will be to identify the main priorities and aspirations for the future for older persons, and the issues that will arise along the way. “Ideally, the main objective will be to come

Nelson Force and we are pleased to be running Wiseowl from Nelson Airport.” Accommodation will be in 40 tents that will be erected on the airfield. These will provide for field catering, a field medical facility, an administration unit, an operations headquarters, a logistics unit providing camp supplies and spares, as well as a maintenance centre

for the aircraft. Apart from its operational tasking, Exercise Wiseowl is a chance for schools, organisations, and the general public, to visit the camp to meet Air Force personnel and find out more about the Air Force. The camp will be open to the public on Saturday 10 May between 10.30am and 2pm.

For ten days the airfield at Nelson Airport will be home to 80-120 Royal New Zealand Air Force personnel from Base Ohakea, as they deploy for Exercise Wiseowl. Exercise Wiseowl is a Pilot Training Squadron deployment, designed to test military student pilots in elements of military flying, including low level flight, navigation, formation flying and deployed operations. The exercise provides student pilots with a taste of what it’s like working away from their home base Ohakea, and in field conditions for the first time. Six Airtrainers will be deployed to Nelson for the exercise, with other fixed wing and rotary aircraft deployed for short periods. Squadron leader Tim Costley is looking forward to the two weeks in Nelson and says the location provides an ideal training ground for student pilots. “The Nelson and Tasman communities have always been very supportive of the Air

Menz Shed: Regarding Teressa O’Brien comment in last week’s Nelson Weekly, “men should be at home helping their wives...” What if they aren’t married or have kids, or have retired, under-employed or would like to learn more skills, maybe make something for their children or wife, get advice on how to fix something around the house to save money or just be somewhere with some mates? Better a Menzshed than the pub. Graeme O’Brien. Local makes NZ U20 rugby team: OMG, hell yeah, awesome news. Well done and congrats. Sharon May Patterson. Babysitters at the mall: Awesome idea! Dropped Miss 3 off there yesterday - she had a blast! Much more fun for her than shopping! Denelle Crichton. New liquor store opening: It’s not really needed as there is the new one at Victory now plus the Liquorland not far from it, as well as all the ones in town. Overkill. Sharon Nicholls. There are far too many. Julie Clark. Way too many already as well as the supermarkets. The government

is trying to faze out smoking, why bring more liquor stores when alcohol is just as damaging, if not worse. Aleisha Brunell. If the prices are good then fine by me! Haha. We are all adults, no one’s being forced to shop there. Sarah Brown. Not needed!! I know business is business but someone has to consider the vulnerable here, it’s the kids that end up in trouble, or neglected, or starving. We have enough bloody liquor outlets already!! NCC take a stand for goodness sake!!! Lead by example. Tania Morrish. Opposite United Video? Where a bottle store used to be? Scott Marris.

We don’t need anymore. We have more than enough. Okay cool, a couple of people get a job. BUT it’s not doing any good for the hundreds/ thousands of people who drink and act like clowns. If anything we need to get rid of a few or get rid of them all, including liquor from supermarkets, and make them buy their alcohol from the night clubs and restaurants?! If the government can raise prices on tobacco, then why not make them pay $5-$10 per drink from the night clubs

TXT text: 027 UR VOICE

and restaurants, and getting rid of liquor stores and alcohol from supermarkets. Not everyone can afford $5-$10 per drink. The outcome should be less drunken clowns out and about. You don’t need alcohol to have fun! Jae Walter. Yeah, good one council. You’re all brilliant and strive so hard to keep the young people of Nelson wasted on alcohol. Well done! Lenna Broughton. Community pianos: Awesome!! I was at the Fremantle markets on Friday and they have a piano there. It was lovely hearing people play and getting enjoyment out of it. This has so many positives, well done!! Tania (via website). Damn ridiculous, love piano music but can imagine how filthy the keys will get if every Tom, Dick and Harry play them, nothing worse than pianos or any thing blaring out while one is trying to shop. Next thing there will be drums. Brenda Kenny. Of course it is a great idea. Yes, there will be issues

but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t give it a go. Cheer up you glass half-emptiers - enjoy what’s in your glass! Doug Newton. If you’d like to have your say on any local issue, please email editorial@nelsonweekly. or text 027 UR VOICE.

Paddy’s quest for solid gold Locally Owned and Operated

Simon Bloomberg Reporter Nelson record enthusiast Paddy McMahon has had a one track mind for the last year, constantly thinking about finding the final volume in the 20 Solid Gold Hits series so he can complete his 36 volume collection. It has been a frustrating 12 months for Paddy who started collecting the classic 20 Solid Gold Hits vinyl records “a few years ago”. He made good progress, quickly finding the first 35 volumes, but then got stuck on Volume 36. “I’ve looked all over the country for it. I’ve looked in Dunedin, Christchurch, Motueka, Takaka, Greymouth, Blenheim and Auckland, but I haven’t had any luck. “Everytime we travel somewhere I’ll pop into the op shops and record stores. “I’m not a great shopper - I’ll go to the Richmond Mall once a year - but I’ve been spending hours and hours in shops looking for that record. Now my wife always takes a book whenever I go into one of the shops because she knows I’ll be in there for a while.” Paddy says he spent so long looking for Solid Gold records at one secondhand yard in Christchurch that the shop keeper forgot he was in there and locked the gates, and left. “There were records galore and I’d found six 20 Solid Gold Hits volumes, but I’d spent

I had to climb over the gates to get out - I was a bit worried that someone would think I was a burglar.” Paddy started collecting the series, which was released from 1973 to 1983, after finding six volumes at the Richmond Recycling Centre. He subsequently purchased the next 29 volumes from op shops, record stores including Everyman Records in Nelson and garage sales paying between $1 to $20 per record. Paddy says the records aren’t just for show and he often plays them on his turntable at home. “It’s great music, especially the later volumes because I know most of those

songs. They were playing them at the Ocean Lodge when I was 19 or 20 they’re real Ocean Lodge songs.” Paddy thought his quest was over earlier this year when he went into a secondhand shop in Dunedin and found a pile of 50 Solid Gold records. Unfortunately, the elusive Volume 36 was missing. “I was so disappointed but I still brought a few that were in good condition so I could replace some of the tattier ones in my collection. But if someone had it and sold it to me it would make me so happy - it would make my wife happy too.” Anyone who can help Paddy in his quest to find Volume 36 can phone him on 544 4148.

Scout leaders revive camp building Bargain A derelict woolshed in the Wairoa Gorge, south of Nelson, has been transformed into a new-look lodge for Scout groups thanks to a dedicated group of Scout leaders from around the NelsonTasman region. The old farm woolshed was initially used by Nelson Girls Brigade for camps in the 1960s and later became a popular camp for Scout groups throughout the region. However, the camp's days appeared numbered when the Scouts couldn't afford to pay insurance on the woolshed and the Department of Conservation, announced it planned to condemn the building. That's when Nayland Avion Scout group's leader, the late Stan Gilbert, stepped in and persuaded DOC to let the Scouts renovate the building and use it as their camp. DOC agreed and Stan and a dedicated band of Scout leaders got together and started the long process of repairing the rundown building. "Stan was the driving force behind the project and we all got together to make it happen," Enner Glen Scout leader Rob Pollock says. "We have one or two big working bees a year and some other smaller ones and we've been working on it for seven or eight years." Rob says the group of Scout leaders has reclad the rotting exterior of the

Rob says Gilbert Lodge is ideally situated for Scout camps, with the Wairoa River running past the camp and lots of bush tracks nearby. He jokes that it is also strategically placed to be out of cellphone reception. "The kids love it. We have a Founder's Camp up here every year now and last year we had close to 300 Scouts - they do river crossings, abseiling, bush walks and we even made a

big mud slide" Group member Peter De Jong says the building has been named Gilbert Lodge in honour of Stan and was officially reopened at a ceremony, attended by Stan's wife June, on February 23 last year. Peter says the project has been supported by generous grants from the Canterbury Community Trust and Lion Foundation. Businesses from around the region have also helped out by supplying materials for the rebuild. Peter says anyone interested in supporting the project can phone him on 541 0380.

- Excellent Family Home in Brightwater

32 Starveall St, Brightwater - Enquiries over $369,000

Skiers and snowboarders have an opportunity to pick up a bargain when the Rainbow Sports Club holds its annual sale at Nelson College Hall this Saturday. The annual sale of cheap second-hand or near new skiing and board riding gear is one of the most popular snow gear sales in the region. It also gives people an opportunity to sell equipment and purchase the club’s membership passes at pre-season rates, and multi-day passes. “The sale really is an excellent way for people starting out in snow sports, or for those who want to upgrade their gear, to get it all at great prices in one place,” club chairman and event organiser Jo Rainey says. Jo says sellers need to bring their gear to the hall on Friday between 6pm and 8pm, or Saturday between 8.30am and 10.30am. He says sellers need to provide their name and price, and all gear needs to be clean with a description of the item for potential buyers. Sellers can bring a wide range of ski-ing and boarding equipment as well as accessories like roof racks and snow chains. Chains needed to be labelled with their tyre size. Jo says the sale is a fundraiser for the club which retains 20 per cent commission, including GST, with all proceeds going to club projects and field maintenance. The sale opens at 11am on Saturday and finishes at 5pm. For more info email Rainbow Ski Area is scheduled to open on July 5.

Jasmine Hollis tried it on and won after shopping at Farmers, Factorie, Hannahs and Postie. The competition will be running again through May in order to promote the fashion stores that the Richmond Mall has. Manager of the mall, Belinda de Clercq, says people don’t realise how many fashion stores they actually have, from designer to department stores and youth. There is no pressure to buy anything, just try on clothes from participating stores, fill in an entry form from the retailer and you could win $1000. Photo: Jessie Johnston.

Police report with Area Commander

Steve Greally

This week on our Nelson Police Facebook page we sent out a message offering a giveaway, which was a key ring that also measures the amount of tread on your car's tyres. Within about an hour we had to take the post down, because we had been inundated with people wanting the tyre tread key ring and it was going to become a logistical nightmare to post so many out. We had requests from all over New Zealand and overseas as well. I'm thrilled by the response and that so many people wanted the key ring, and more importantly that they wanted to check the amount of tread on their car tyres. We've since had lots of messages of thanks back from those who have already received the keyrings, which we really appreciate. Your tyres are probably the most important, and most often overlooked, road safety issue. All too often when we attend motor vehicle crashes, the vehicle inspection reveals that the tyres were not up to standard and most likely contributed to the crash. Checking your tread is easy to do and it could save your life. With the changes to the rules around Warrants of Fitness, it's more important than ever that drivers take personal responsibility for the state of their vehicle. If you missed out on the Facebook giveaway don't worry. We've got plenty of the key rings left and you're welcome to go to the Nelson, Richmond or Motueka Police Station and pick one up. Our Highway staff will also have them to give out in the course of their work. Winter's around the corner folks, so now's a really good time to make sure your vehicle is safe to be on the road.

It has been said many times before. ‘A bad farmer curses the weather, a good farmer makes use of it’ The same thing can be said of gardeners. Now I don’t claim to be a good gardener, and quite often not even an average one, but this week I tried for the ‘Good’ stakes. I paid attention to the weather forecasters. A wet week is predicted for the coming days and I have paid attention to that. I have just come inside, having spent an enjoyable and productive afternoon in the garden. Spring onions have been planted, along with beetroot with glorious rich red foliage. The label tells all who care to read, that this beautiful foliage is an added attraction to soups, and makes a colourful addition to salads and stir-fries. Which makes me excited, so a sowing was also made of sugar snap peas, and snow peas. Both of these varieties can be sown from early winter to early spring. Well done Me! But that ain’t all! Before Easter, I planted some perpetual spinach. This week, I managed to harvest a small number of leaves to add to a meal. It’s a lovely feeling, that. So today, in went some more spinach, along with another planting of silverbeet. The day was just right for this sort of activity, with a gentle feeling in the air that the rains will surely come. A liberal handful or two of sheep pellets was dug in and this time I added a sprinkling of sugar to the mix. Yes, that is right! I had read recently that a touch of sugar helps establish a strong root system, so thought I would give it a go. A sprinkling of Neem Tree granules was a final addition to the recipe. Shortly I will plant caulis, cabbage [for a

nice late winter coleslaw] and broccoli, now that the white butterflies are not so prominent. But just in case they should come flying by, I have a container of Neem Tree oil to spray on the plants to keep the pests at bay. So, what if you have already done all this winter preparation in the vege department. Now you can turn your attention to your ornamental garden. Do take a look at the new stocks of Rhododendrons, on display now, and while you are about it turn you attention to the evergreen Azaleas which are showing colour now. Many varieties of Pieris are budding up nicely, and the Michelias are showing velvety black buds in preparation for spring. It is exciting to look forward to the coming months. Don’t go about doing a Hissy Fit because we are heading into some winter weather. Look at it this way. May is here now, and it’s not too bad so far. Next will come June and July, and if you translate that into weeks it only adds up to eight. Next we will be heading into August and I bet there will be a few lambs on the scene by then! So enjoy now! • Make a sowing of sugar snap and snow peas. • Remember to dig in the above peas after harvest, to add extra nitrogen to the soil. • Don’t forget to sow or plant Broad Beans now. • Make a sowing of a green manure crop if you have the space. • Give Mum a spring flowering shrub for Mother’s Day, AND offer to plant it for her. • Check out the new Hellebores for a gift for Mum on Sunday.

ROBERT ELLIS, MAN OF POWER Robert Ellis moved to Brightwater in the gas-lamp era of the early 1900’s. He bought an existing flour mill and by 1910 drove an electrical generator using a water wheel. By

1911 he had put up the first five street-lights in Brightwater, but in time supplied electric street lighting from Wakefield to Tahunanui. The Waimea Power Board took over the scheme in 1933 and didn’t close it until 1947.

Kids ready for winter sport Junior Sports participation - Kids aged 5-13years

In fact Richmond has free parking every day of the week, every week of the year. No ifs, no buts.


More than 4500 kids will take to the sports fields, courts and turfs of Nelson and Tasman this week, as junior winter sport kicks off. Most junior sports start this Saturday, so Nelson Weekly asked each of the major sporting codes in Nelson and Tasman the number of registered players aged between 5 and 13. Those registrations show football will be the most played sport in the region, although it is neck-and-neck with rugby, both with around 1350 players in that age group. Netball is the third most popular with just under 1000 players, followed by basketball, hockey and tennis. Nelson Bays Football general manager, Clive Beaumont says the number of kids playing football has been increasing over the past ten years and he’s

Netball’s ‘exciting’ season opener

NelsoN Rugby Football Club

Andrew Board Editor

Thinking of playing senior rugby? Chelsea Routhan had a fair idea that running netball in Nelson would be a busy job, but even she couldn’t have predicted how full-on the start of the season would be. This Thursday night the premier grade teams have a pre-season game, before 2500 players take to the Saxton Field courts on Saturday for their first game of the season. The very next day, Nelson Netball hosts the Canterbury Tactix in an ANZ Netball Championship game at Saxton Stadium. “It’s definitely going to be full-on,” says Chelsea. “But it’s exciting.” Chelsea was appointed as manager for Nelson Netball at the start of the year and has been focussed on this weekend since. The start of the season is always a huge event for the governing body but throw in an ANZ Championship game and it makes it even bigger. But Chelsea says she’s more excited than nervous. “It’s a big challenge and this job has been a huge learning curve for me, not so much what I’m doing but the quantity of it. But we have great support from community volunteers and it’s really neat to have people there backing you up and supporting you.” Netball is one of the highest participation sports in Nelson and having the entire code played in one area of Saxton Field creates a huge “buzz” and excitement. Chelsea says that is a huge asset for

Their mothers have played it, their grandmothers have played it and it’s exciting to be a part of it as a family.” She says her goals over the next few years is to grow the number of players, make sure the sport remains financially stable and grow the number of elite players coming from Nelson. “We’re probably not representing ourselves as highly as we could when it comes to elite level.

Nelson beat Stoke 33-19 at Greenmeadows but had led the game 33-7 at half time. The bulk of Nelson’s points were scored in the first 20 minutes and co-coach Kade Heke says they let Stoke back in the game in the second half. “The boys are building well, that first half we were implementing what we’re training for and did really well, but the second half we put ourselves under pressure and
