Locals reach Pride of NZ finals

Six Nelsonians have been named as finalists in the South Island section of the Pride of New Zealand awards. Kyle Paki Paki, Philip Walker, Adam Black and Gary Miller were selected as finalists in the bravery and heroism category for their rescue of the Fa’ave family in July last year. Ian Price will battle two others for the Environment award, and Tama Easton and

Mark Janssen make up two of the three finalists in the fundraiser of the year category. The awards have been running over the past two months, searching for the country’s most inspiring stories. In Nelson, more than 20 people were nominated, with six making it to the South Island finals in Christchurch on August 7. Adam Black, who was nominated for his

bravery in Nelson, is from the UK. The South Island winners of each category will then go to the national finals in Auckland in early September, meeting winners of the three regions in the North Island. Kyle Paki Paki says he was “absolutely humbled” when he found out he had made the finals. “I keep saying that it’s something most people would do but it’s still nice to

be recognised.” He says he will be taking his mum with him to the dinner. “Mum was the first person I opened up to after the accident, so she knows what I’ve been through and she was the first person I thought of.” The awards are being run by the New Zealand Herald, TSB Bank, The Hits and in conjunction with Nelson Weekly.

at the peak, those entering the park had to be held back, and Light Nelson Trust chair Brian Riley says Friday night’s cancellation didn’t help. “There’s no way we could have expected a crowd that was six times bigger than our busiest night last year,” he says. Brook St resident Christine Horlemann said it took about “half an hour” just to get into the Queens Gardens and across the first bridge. “They should have run it for another two days. We’d never been before but just thought we’d go for the kids to look at something different.” Liz Reeve attended the free event after seeing it on TV, and despite saying organisers were struggling to cope with the demand, she thought it was neat. “It’s a bit of excitement for the kids. I’d definitely come again.” But some event goers weren’t so impressed

and vented their frustration on the Nelson Weekly Facebook page. “Total nightmare tonight, trying to get round with kiddies. Far too many people, we couldn’t get out of there fast enough!” said Summer Hebberd. Cheryl Remnant thought the venue was far too small for the crowd that attended and “got sick of being abused for trying to get around with stroller after all it was listed as a family event.” While Casey Brown thought it was a “waste of time” and left after 20 minutes of not getting anywhere. Light Nelson featured 40 installations from local and national artists, and in its second year organisers were hoping to top the crowd of 16,000 from last year. In future events, Brian says the intention is to create a promenade along the Maitai and extend the installations right into the city. “With the huge crowd we had last night we really need to make this happen soon.”

Simon Bloomberg Dog care services around Nelson are booming as the owners get busier and the dogs become hairier, more pampered and more numerous. Twenty years ago there was just food (usually a can of Fido), vets bills and registration, but today dog owners are also spending money on dog groomers, walkers, trainers, whisperers, toys, clothing and expensive health foods. The New Zealand Companion Animal Council estimates that our country’s dog owners spend an average of $1047 each year on their dogs and that amount doesn’t surprise Town and Country vet Brenda Halliwell. “Everyone is busier rushing around after children and working and they still want the fun of having a pet,” Brenda says. “So what’s happening is that they are paying people to groom and walk their dogs so they don’t feel guilty about not doing it themselves.” Brenda says there’s also been an increase in popularity of small dog breeds that don’t shed hair and that’s increased the demand for dog groomers.

One Nelson church has been pulled down this week, while another has been farewelled. Unite Church on Rutherford St had its main building pulled down last week after it was deemed an earthquake risk a year ago. Minister Paul Burton says the church has been operating out of its older hall on the same site since the earthquake rating was confirmed. He says watching it come down wasn’t sad because the decision was made some time ago and there is a sense of excitement at what lies ahead. “Next step is where to? Hopefully, that means building something on site. There are pressures on space at the moment in our current buildings but there are big cost tags on building something new, as well,” he says. Just days before the Unite church came down, the Stoke Methodist Church on Neale Ave, had a “de-consecration ceremony” after it was sold

to an unknown vendor. Presbyter Gary Glover says the building, which has served the congregation since 1965, was deemed an earthquake risk more than a year ago and they were ordered out of it by church authorities. Since then they’ve worshipped from various venues but most recently from St Andrews Presbyterian Church, also in Stoke. “They are a church without a minister and I’m a minister without a church,” says Gary. The cost of strengthening the building was out of range for the church, so it was decided to sell it and use the proceeds to redevelop its youth wing on the adjacent site, as a new parish. The massive stained glass window in the church will be removed and used in the new building, says Gary.

Southern Link ‘just a political promise’ A third arterial road from Stoke to Nelson city is “just a political promise”, says councillor Pete Rainey, and building the road is not back on the agenda. Nelson City councillors will meet this Thursday to discuss sending options for a Rocks Rd upgrade to the public for consultation. But it’s likely the conversation will swing to the southern arterial route, after the Prime Minister announced

funding for an investigation into the road last month. The two projects aren’t linked, but if the new road, dubbed the southern link, was to be built, it would mean the state highway would be moved from Rocks Rd to the new road. There had been rumours of some councillors attempting to add to this week’s meeting agenda and force a vote

on removing the protection of the railway reserve from Victory to Wakatu, where the road is proposed to go. But councillor Pete Rainey says that isn’t needed because the southern link isn’t on the agenda and he doubts it will be. “There’s been some talk in the community that the southern link is back on the agenda, well, that’s certainly not the case. [Just] because a local MP has made an

election… well, it’s a political promise and it doesn’t mean the road will go ahead.” Pete says there is a group of councillors who “remain to be convinced” that building a new highway through Victory is a good idea, but that it would only be tested by it being put on an agenda. “The talk that the southern link is back on the agenda isn’t substantiated by anything in front of council that I can see.”

Students get in on the Light Nelson fun Creative Industries student Cheri Thompson had to figure out how to suspend a giant spider web across the top of a stairwell in the Creative Industries building at Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology. The intricately-woven web is one of the works by NMIT students and staff which featured in the second Light Nelson festival over the weekend. As part of the community festival, the Creative Industries building came alive with brilliant light installations, both inside and out. About 40 students from the Bachelor of Arts and Media are involved - some working in small groups and others creating individual works. Last month, a ‘dry run’ was held to test out how the works would look, photograph them for assessment and iron out any issues. Creative Industries Tutor Kay van Dyk says it’s a great experience for students to be involved with. “Participating in a community event is an invaluable experience that students will gain a lot of learning from,” she says. The Level 5 (first year) students were given a fairly open brief of ‘lantern, light and shadow’ and

The light installation works vary from huge shadow projections to a giant mermaid, wrapped trees to a work featuring children’s clothing on a washing line – a commentary on children affected by war. Materials include everything from recycled wood to steel, chickenwire, bamboo and even sellotape. Not only have the students had to design and create their works within budget and to the brief, they’ve also had choose their sites, install the works, figure out how to

light them and comply with all health and safety requirements. Cheri Thompson, who is in her second year of a Bachelor of Arts and Media degree, says it’s been a “very challenging but also very cool” project to be a part of. She created her work using 300 metres of fluorescent builders’-string, weaving it, using a darning needle, in her back garden over several weeks. “With a spider’s web, every thread strengthens or weakens the one before and after it – just as everything that we do now reflects our past and future,” she says. The web was lit from underneath with fluorescent lighting.

man dies in moutere: A man died after being struck by a passing car on the Moutere Highway about 6.20pm yesterday. The 40 year old deceased male’s small van was parked at the side of the road and he was on the roadway, when he was struck by a passing vehicle and killed. The driver of that vehicle was uninjured and is receiving victim support. fa’avae to speak: World champion adventure racer Nathan Fa’avae and record breaking caver Neil Silverwood, will be the guest speakers at an Outdoors Indoors fundraising evening at The Boathouse starting at 6pm on July 30, organised by Stoke company Absolute Wilderness. Tickets cost $10 and can be purchased on line at ab or at Rollo’s Outdoor Centre and R and R Sport in Nelson. All proceeds go to the NelsonMarlborough Rescue Helicopter.

The third annual Art Expo Nelson brought some of the best artisans out into one space, and the public responded by turning out in their thousands. Project manager Nic Foster says the quality of the work continues to reach new highs, and local attendee Maxine McNabb, agrees. “The talent has risen every year,” she says. From etchings to oils, and sculpture to fabrics, the different mediums made for an eclectic collection of the stunning talents. Contributor Jeff Connell says he tries to portray creativity when working on a new piece. “[I’m] always looking at light and landscape to have convincing spaces… a painting you can look into and, in your mind’s eye, move around inside it.” And as part of her creative process, Nelson artist Ruth Vaega says she spent hours observing a robin for one of her etchings.

Working with Nelson’s poorer families has been a passion for Penny Molnar and that work has been recognised with a nomination in the Pride of New Zealand Awards. Penny Molnar is the Victory Community Centre’s Be Well nurse. She’s paid for 30 hours of work per week. When her shift is up, she carries on working – uncontracted and unpaid. “We’ve always been on sunshine wages,” says Penny, 67, who has been nominated in the lifetime achievement category of the awards. “People want to live here because of the climate, but the wages are low for the cost of living here. A lot of jobs are seasonal in fish and horticulture. People want to come here, but once here, it's not the easiest.” Some of those people are refugees who struggle when in need of housing after they’ve had children, or when in need of more than basic healthcare. “A lot of clients are refugees. Often, after 2-3 years they still need support. If you’ve been in a refugee camp for 15 years, it’s hard to settle in.” The building is no more than three rooms attached to a school hall, but the centre’s really a collection of people. Penny’s contract is to deliver community-based services from the community centre.

Her contract says nothing about taking rubbish to the tip. “The most unexpected thing, I guess I do, is a neighbourly thing which a nurse wouldn’t be expected to do: I leave a trailer at people’s houses where rubbish is a problem. It’s expensive to go to the tip and they’ve been told by the landlord they must move it. I pick up the trailer and take it to the tip, maybe on my day off…. It’s neighbourly things others wouldn’t necessarily call professional. “During the recent flood, one family had to be evacuated. I found some toys and some cash so they could immediately get a change of clothes for the kids. It’s those little neighbourly gestures which blur the line between professional and neigh-

A bright ray of hope to many in darker times, which others have put in the ‘too hard’ basket.” Penny is described as being instrumental in the health and social service network Community and Whanau, the Whenua Iti Outdoors Experience* trust, the House 44 drop-in centre in Stoke, the local rape crisis centre and the Pacifica Trust.

Bridget Budget answers your questions

Q: My son’s birthday party is coming up

and it is going to be expensive. I’m also a little stressed because my son has been invited to other kid’s birthdays and buying those gifts will also be a strain. Do you have you any suggestions? A: Keeping up with what you think everyone else expects can take the fun out of the parties for parents. Release yourself from huge expectations and get back to celebrating the birthday. Try these suggestions: Work out how much you can afford and stick to it. Get your older child involved in planning their birthday with the budget you have set, letting them make decisions about what they want and what they can do without. DIY as much as possible: cake, food, games and cheap entertainment (eg.DVD hire) Ask parents not to bring a present for your child, but instead bring a gold coin OR set a price limit on gifts. Other parents will thank you and can do the same for their child. Forgo the elaborate goodie bags- a piece of cake wrapped in a serviette is a nice treat to take home. Birthday parties are not a competitive event; don’t buy into the idea of ‘keeping up with the Joneses’. Truth be told the ‘Joneses’ probably can’t afford everything either. Your different approach to parties may well start a new trend with the other parents!

Southern Link: When the Council finds out the likely cost of a tunnel through to the Port, to bypass Tahunanui and the waterfront, then we can tell Dr Smith if we agree to spending $50 million on his road. But is this just a distraction? Ren Kempthorne.

Walk for Water: We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and kind donations, which has been making a huge difference to the charity goals. Words cannot express our thankfulness. Thank you very much for your extremely generous donation to the charity. It is greatly appreciated and we can’t thank you enough. You have touched our hearts and our gratitude is overflowing. The Waimea Weekly and Nelson Weekly team has made the last two ‘Water for Prosperity’ projects possible and we are very thankful and appreciate the support as it is making a huge difference to the people of Torwood. Many Thanks, Gideon Stephen Matorino and David Alan Barnes. What did you think of Light Nelson: Beautiful! Kuraarangi Ropoama. It was freakin’ awesomeness. Kids and adults loved it. Bridget Hobden.

We just got home from the madness! Think the number of people there made it hard to see everything. Verity Bartlett.

Lighting along the sides of the paths would be helpful... it was a little scary not knowing where the steps or edges of the paths were with so many people crushed together. Lee Punt.

Thought it was a waste of time left after 20mins of moving and getting nowhere!! Need to organize directions and movements around gardens. Casey Brown.

Went last night, had a great time! I enjoyed the flow, that you could go where you liked etc at your own pace... I think some of the paths could have been illuminated a bit better though, and maybe some people encouraging the crowd to move? Me and my toddler were trying to get a glimpse of something while standing behind two women gasbagging about their great-aunt. We waited ages and they wouldn’t move from the front row, so we went to look at something else. Sarah Kerby.

Tried to get in, waited for ages. Wish it would stay for another night or two, would of liked to have of seen it! Magan Oliver-Lowe. Too many peeps to see everything properly, and felt for the elderly. Very hard for them to navigate their way around. There were too many allowed on the bridge at once. Would have been better if was on longer instead of everyone cramming into three nights. But what we did see was awesome. Karen Ferguson.

So glad we didn’t go. Went last year and it was awesome. But having the first night cancelled they should of put an extra night on to make up for it. Dave Wassa.

Very disappointing, think last years’ was way better. And gates not very organised-staff not knowing what was happening. Pauline Van Der Plas. Too many people. Hard for the little ones. Barely any room to move. I would have loved it if it was on longer so less people. Bonnie Geiger.

Didn’t enjoy it as way to squashed in and not very good instructions. I’m sure the lights were cool, but it was madness. Anita Newport.

Way too busy! Need to have it one way the whole way around. In one entrance, out the other. Also, it should be for the whole school holidays. Why just one weekend? Cherie Llewellin.

Thought the venue is far too small for the crowd that attended tonight. I got sick of being abused for trying to get around with stroller after all it was

Local charity is walking the talk

A local charity that ensures no student walks to school without shoes is taking big strides – and it’s thanks to the generosity of the community. Walk With Us, a charity set up early last year by eight Nelson businesswomen, helps fund school shoes, sport shoes and socks, for local kids whose families are in need of some financial support. Walk With Us raised $15,000 at a charity auction at the end of October last year, which enabled them to start accepting application forms and get the ball rolling. President Carol Shirley says they were “really excited” with the response from the auction held last year, and the trust was now busy working with its six pilot schools to get shoes on the feet of students who are in need. “We had been told that some students were coming to school with bare feet or wet shoes. There is a big need out there and we keep being told it’s just getting harder and harder financially,” she says. The way the process works is that schools will identify when there is a need and an application form will be sent to the charity. If approved, a voucher goes out to the parents and they then go to sponsors Stirling Sport and Number One Shoe Warehouse to pick out a pair of footwear. “It all goes through the schools, the teacher often sees the need and contacts the parent. We are quite specific about what they get, they are proper school shoes and proper sports shoes.” She says there has been a “good steady flow”





• School holidays is a busy time for everyone and an opportunity to nearly freeze the kids to death by taking them fishing. • The Harbour Master's boat will be out on the water regularly these holidays, and your safety and the safety of your family is of paramount importance to us. • Please ensure you wear your lifejackets. Don’t leave them in the boot, on the back seat, or in the garage hanging on the wall. Yes we have heard it all. What sort of an example do you think you set when you are not wearing your lifejacket but asking the kids to do so? • Recent statistics released show that most drownings or deaths are males between 18 to 25, or over 45, years old. Please make sure you are not one of them. Come home to the family in the same fit state as when you left. • The winds are unpredictable at this time of the year so ensure you keep a look out for change and get back before it occurs. One thing we can be sure of is the winds are likely to be cold. If you get wet the wind chill factor increases enormously. Keep the crew and yourself dry. Wear the appropriate wet weather gear under your lifejacket. Take care this winter, if in doubt… go snow skiing.

Quiz world champs here to raise money for Mike The world championship quiz night is here. This Friday night at the Waimea Old Boys clubrooms in Richmond, Mike Corkill and his six children will be hoping to crown a new “world champion”. The tongue-in-cheek title of the quiz was penned by Mike’s kids, who are hoping it will go a long way to helping Mike reach his $100,000 fundraising goal for a new pair of lungs. So far the family has raised more than $20,000 for the operation, which he needs to have to live. The operation isn’t funded by

Police report with Area Commander

Steve Greally

The Nelson region is a great place for people who enjoy the outdoors, but every year Police are involved in a large number of searches for missing people. Some of those searches do not have a happy outcome, but people heading into the outdoors could do more to ensure their own safety. Police strongly advise that everyone who ventures into the outdoors carries a Personal Locator Beacon. It does not matter whether you are doing a day trip or a multi day tramp; it only takes a moment’s inattention for the trip to turn into a life and death situation where you need immediate help. Carrying a beacon can also save hours, if not days, of searching for police and search and rescue volunteers. Here a few tips for using beacons: • Always register your beacon at www. That is a legal requirement. • Only turn the beacon ON when it is an EMERGENCY. Being too tired or having a blister is not a life and death situation. • If you have cell phone coverage - use your cell phone first. • Carry the beacon on your person not in your pack • Once activated don’t move, it is much harder to track a mobile beacon. Most beacons are designed for the aerial to be in a vertical position • Find open ground, away from a bluff or overhang, so that the beacon can find the satellites. • Rescue time can be as quick as 1 or 2 hours or take up to 48 hours, all depending on the weather and your location • If you do activate the beacon accidentally, phone the Rescue Coordination Centre 0508 472269 or 0508 4RCCNZ and advise them that help is not required. They will then instruct you that it is OK to turn off your beacon. Beacons are hired out by the Nelson Locator Beacon Trust for as little as $20 a weekend or $30 for a week from Rollos Outdoor Centre.

His condition is hereditary, not due to any lifestyle choices of his own. The quiz starts at 7pm with teams of eight. The comedy duo of Steve Page and Kevin Cross will MC the event, and there are thousands of dollars worth of prizes. To book your table, email mikesnewlungs@ or call 544 3160.

It’s just in the early stages now, but the newlyformed Nelson Horse Rescue Trust hopes it can soon rescue unwanted and abused horses around the region. Set up by local woman Felicity Williams last month, the Nelson Horse Rescue Trust is hoping to secure land so it can begin its work. “Once we’ve got the land we’ll be able to start rescuing horses,” she says. “It’s in the very early stages, we just incorporated the trust two weeks ago, but if we can get people on board supporting us then we can get it going as soon as possible.” The scenarios of when a horse will need rescuing include; being mistreated, or when its owner cannot afford to look after it anymore. “A lot of times people get horses but then can’t look after them. They’re not cheap. I guess it started when I

got my kaimanawa, he was wild when I got him, but it’s been a good experience watching a horse go from being wild to tame or from bad to good.” “We want to get them in, rehabilitate them and then re-home them, and the cost of re-homing them will go towards helping more horses.” Felicity says being able to lease some land longterm “would be perfect” to get the trust into its next stage. “We’re sort of looking for ten to 15 acres because we need an acre per horse. Ideally, it’ll be somewhere we can lease so we won’t have to move anytime soon.” Felicity and a silent partner are funding the trust themselves and are welcoming support from potential sponsors. For more information on the trust, contact Felicity on 022 318 0891.

The Trafalgar Painting Company Ltd team number 12 staff which can often balloon to 25 depending on the work load, but their skill and knowledge in their field are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. Asbestos removal is a serious task that should only be handled by a licensed disposal company like Trafalgar Painting Company Ltd, and it can be found in a number of areas throughout homes. It is a naturally occurring fibrous mineral which was popular in building material and, although it isn’t uncommon to find it in your home, if it is well maintained and not disturbed, it generally will not

cause a problem. When asbestos begins to disintegrate, the loose fibres can be inhaled which is when it becomes potentially fatal to you and your family. If you begin to see signs of wear and tear in an area of your home containing asbestos, then the chance of loose fibres increases along with the risk to you. Trafalgar Painting Company Ltd have years of experience dealing with the removal of asbestos from ceilings, windows and door panels, s pr aye d coatings, pipe insulation, floor tiles, vinyl and any other area that incorporates the material. Asbestos isn’t a DIY job and requires professional assistance and disposal to eliminate the possibility of the fibres being released in transit, so call in the experts at Trafalgar Painting Company to help make your home a safe place. To contact Trafalgar Painting Company Ltd, for any of their services, call Joe on 027 5468 414 or email them at

Loving my job

From varied careers that have always involved service and contact with people, from owning businesses, working in the car industry, through several recommendations 25 years ago I then moved into Real Estate. Over the years the industry has gone through many changes, but interaction with people and working towards the best result remains top priority for me. It’s a rewarding vocation and I strive to give my clients my total commitment, honesty and reliability, but also on the lighter side I am able to inject some fun and humour, as it is probably the single largest investment most people will make. Being a local, I have the knowledge and expertise to advise and assure anyone, making buying or selling in beautiful Nelson an enjoyable and easy experience. Combined with the enthusiasm and love I have for Real Estate, “Summit Real Estate”, also a local company, compliments and enhances my own values. To past, present and future clients, thank you, and I look forward to that continued or new relationship – call me anytime.

Use MTA Good Guys created for their members is what sets MTA members apart from others in the same field and can mean a weight off your shoulders when it comes to finding a business you can trust. The MTA is governed by a board of directors who meet regularly and the MTA council comprises the board, branch presidents and committee chairs. Wendy Peterson has been recently elected as the MTA President for Nelson after being involved with the Nelson branch committee for around seven years. The Nelson executive is a small group of around six people who work together to organise training and opportunities for the membership in the region. Her role as president will also see her attend meetings with other MTA execu-

tives and represent Nelson nationally. “I guess it was the next step for me. I took it as a challenge for me and the chance for some personal development,” says Wendy. “I also enjoy getting a better insight into the workings of the MTA which only an executive position can offer.” Wendy and her husband have been a part of the MTA ever since they took over Wakefield Auto Services and believe in the benefits of the organisation for them as owners as well as the public. Wendy can also act as your first port of call for any inquiries or if you would like to request the MTA’s mediation service. For more information on the MTA visit the website at www., contact Wendy on 03 541 8121 or email admin@wasl.

How to avoid some common party planning mistakes.

Have an 'apple pop' party All you have to do is cut up some apples and insert candy sticks/skewers. Then just dip, dip, coat, coat, and eat. So much fun! Tip: A muffin tin holds the toppings - brown sugar and cinnamon, mini marshmallows, chopped peanuts, chocolate chips etc.

Poor invitations Give plenty of notice, not just for egate out contacting guests guests but for you too. Around three weeks beforehand start handing out/posting invitations. Make sure you give plenty of detailed information. You don’t want to go all out on the cooking and find most of the guests had lunch just before arriving, not realising a substantial spread would be on offer. Ask for RSVP’s (around 1 week out from event) – Kiwis are well known for not RSVPing on time so give yourself a few days to follow up so you know where you’re at. Invite parents to stay if children are younger (or older for that matter). You can’t manage the pass the parcel, cook the cherios and control 10 kids on your own!

Not having a Plan B.If your venue is weather dependant, have a back-up plan. This will save you stressing out about something you can’t control. If you need to change venues, it helps if you have a contact list for your guests on hand. If you’re busy, this makes it easier to del-

with details of new venue.

Over committing to a cake A simple cake well-

executed can be more impressive than the cake that ‘doesn’t look like the photo’. Don’t be afraid to ask for help here - delegate or get a cake professionally made. It’s very easy to under-estimate the time and skill involved in making great-looking cakes. Also, you don’t need to hide the cake away until ‘its time’- if you’ve gone to all the effort or expense of making a beautiful cake - why not have it out on show instead of just for a few minutes during ‘happy birthday’?

Poor time management It’s very easy to over com- out too much and provide them with the party outfit to

mit as things often take more time than you think. Plan to be ready a good hour before the party starts, so even if you go over time you’ll still have time to touch up your lippy after the last balloons are blown up before guests arrive! Think about timing when planning your food too. You don’t want everything on your menu to have to be made the morning of the party - and avoid things that require a lot of attention during the party. Get a balance of things you can make in advance, delegate and mix homemade with some bought food. As great as a little helper is, sometimes getting dad, a grandparent or friend to take the kids out during the lead-up to the party is a really smart move. Ask them not to tire the children

put on last minute so they arrive fresh, clean and ready to enjoy their party.

Not getting any photos Having a wonderful party is great but it’s nice to have some photos to remember it by. It’s a great job to ask a family member/ friend to domaybe a teen cousin etc. Over/Under catering Take into account the time of

your party as well as the age of the guests. A good rule of thumb for finger/party food is six options plus cake (3-4 savoury and 2-3 sweet). It’s nice to include at least one healthy alternative, such as fruit, as it’s a good standby for any allergy sufferers. It also helps if you have a fairly good idea of how many are coming - which goes back to your invites and good follow-up on RSVP’s.

Getting stressed and forgetting to have fun.

Planning is the key here – refer 1-9! Ask for help and don’t give yourself too much to do during the party. Maybe a family friend or your babysitter can help out on the day? They can keep the jug boiled and rubbish cleared while you actually get to talk with your guests and have fun with the kids. Credit:

The Nelson Tramping Club will be looking back to when its members wore hob-nailed boots and oil skins and carried heavy canvas packs, when they celebrate the club’s 80th anniversary at St Arnaud next weekend. About 40 of the club’s past and present members will be attending the anniversary at the Alpine Lodge and Lake Rotoiti Community Hall on Saturday and Sunday. Club secretary Pat Holland says they will be holding a dinner at the Lodge on Saturday as well as slides shows and displays covering the club’s history. “Some of the slides and photos are really interesting,” Pat says. “They give a good insight into the club’s history. “The members were hardier back then because they had to be. The carried heavier packs everything is lightweight now.” The club also built a number of huts around the district. They built the original Rocks Hut, which has since been replaced. Pat says 40 trampers went on the club’s first official trip along the Dun Line and around Mt Jenkins in June 1934. The first overnight trip during August 1934 was to Mt Arthur - the walk to Flora Hut taking three hours due to the road end being further down Graham Valley. The club’s most popular annual trip for 50 years was a Christmas trip up to Third House. The trip was advertised nationally at one stage with numbers peaking at 300 in 1969. Pat says he is looking forward to catching up with some of the club’s past-presidents at the anniversary weekend, including Stoke’s

A short rush Following the discovery of gold in the Aorere Valley in 1857, payment in gold was common practice and every shop had gold scales. The brave wife of a local shopkeeper sewed the gold into

her skirt for trips to Nelson, believing she was less likely to be attacked than a man. The gold rush ended in 1859 following a severe winter and the fire which destroyed the Collingwood Township.

Commonwealth Games draws closer for Nelson athletes

A record contingent of Nelson athletes will represent New Zealand at the Commonwealth Games, and the countdown to Glasgow is nearly up with the event just over a week away. Cyclist George Bennett has already been ruled out after sustaining an injury in a crash last month, but ten others from Nelson will be wearing the silver fern in Glasgow, some for the first time. The Nelson contingent is; Anita Punt (hockey), Julian Matthews (athletics), Amy Mcilory (lawn bowls), Shannon Mcilroy (lawn bowls), Jo Edwards (lawn bowls), Val Smith (lawn bowls), Bryce Heem (rugby sevens), Shannon Francois (netball), Mark Brewer (judo) and Jack Bauer (cycling). 1500m runner Julian Matthews, a former Nelson College student, will be one of those competing at the Commonwealth Games

Phillip Rollo Reporter for the first time. Speaking via email from the Athletics NZ athlete's base in Cardiff, Julian says reality has finally sunk in that he will be competing at the Games. “It’s taken a while to sink in, but it has now – I arrived at the Athletics NZ athlete’s base here in Cardiff a couple of days ago and being around all the other team members has made it more of a reality for me. I’m really looking forward to getting my uniform and being able to try on that black singlet, while trying to keep the pressure of the event at bay for a bit longer, of course,” he says. Julian will be targeting a place in the 1500m final and will “see what happens”

from there. “The 1500 is such an exciting race, it really comes down to the day and tactics, you never know what will happen.” Coming from a “very sport-orientated” family, Julian has always dreamt of someday representing New Zealand since picking up athletics as a 13 year old. “To be able to compete at the Commonwealth Games is such an honour – I am so excited to be able to represent my country at an international event, and especially one that is close to so many Kiwis' hearts.” Nelson’s best hopes of a gold medal, outside of the rugby sevens team, lie with veteran bowlers Jo and Val. Jo won a gold medal in the pairs in 2002, while Val finished second in the singles in 2010. The duo, who are good mates off the green, are teaming up in the pairs this year and have a proven track record at international events. The next best prospect is Anita and the

women’s Black Sticks hockey team. Anita, who is one of the most experienced players in the team with 155 caps, has been scoring for fun in recent internationals and was part of the squad which won a silver medal in Dehli. Amy and Shannon have the unique story of being husband and wife, as well as members of the New Zealand lawn bowls team. When she was named in the squad to attend her first Commonwealth Games, Amy said she just wanted to make her family proud. “My biggest thing is definitely doing this for my family, and my mum and dad are coming over to watch.” An eleventh Nelson athlete will compete in the games, but he won’t be wearing a silver fern. Former Makos number eight Mark Bright, now 35 years old, has gained selection in the England rugby sevens team. The Commonwealth Games begin July 23.

The earliest members of the Wood Miniature Rifle Club; Kevin Barton, Keith Barton, Doris Barton, Bryan Chapman and Peter Slinn, at the club’s 90th anniversary on Saturday.

Rifle club on target for centenary

The Wood Miniature Rifle Club celebrated its 90th anniversary on Saturday, and an injection of new members over the past few years should put it on target for 100. Kevin Barton, who has represented New Zealand in small bore rifle shooting and was a member of the club for 35 years, says the club was started by a group of Italians. “They had 11 members at the first meeting but within six months they were up to 44. It was a gentlemen’s sport, now it’s a blue collar sport,” he says. The club, which now has about 20 members and has based near the Trafalgar Centre since the 50s, tends to revolve around the same families, with daughters, sons and

Phillip Rollo Reporter

grandchildren following in the footsteps of their relatives. “Several times there have been three generations. Both of my boys were shooting. But there’s definitely quite a few.” While it is an Olympic discipline, the sport still struggles to compete with other more popular codes. “It’s not really a spectatorfriendly sport. Some people often, tell me it’s like watching grass grow, but once you get involved it’s much better and the social aspect is fantastic.” Tania Slinn, who got into shooting through her father and grandfather, says the 90th

anniversary was special for the club, which is the oldest in the region and one of the oldest in the country. “Because we’re such a familyorientated club we’ve got a real closeness, and it’s like a whole other family,” she says. Her brother Dayle Slinn, a three position shooter, competed at the Commonwealth Games twice, and is one of many who have represented New Zealand. Tania says the club was in good hands as it closes in on its 100th anniversary in ten years time. “I don’t think we’ll ever go away and we’re actually starting to grow again as a club. We’ve had a lot of new members in the club, so yeah, we’re definitely on target for the 100.”

Victory get use to winning Phillip Rollo Reporter The Victory Phoenix Vikings are now just two weeks away from their first ever TRL finals appearance — and it’s got the community buzzing. 2014 has been a historic season for the proud Victory club, which is situated in the heartland of Nelson’s rugby league fraternity. The team started the season with their first ever win, a momentous result over the Wairau Taniwha — after going the entire 2013 season without a win. The team has so far recorded wins against every other side except the Wanderers Wolves and the unbeaten Richmond Rabbits. With just two rounds to play in the TRL round robin, Victory are all but confirmed in the semi-finals and coach Andrew Dooley says the hardships of last year are finally paying off. “Last year we didn’t win a game. We didn’t even come close to winning a game. But our boys just showed heart. They turned up every week. We earned our respect,” he says. Last year Victory were restricted to having a squad with 75 per cent of players who were new to the sport, despite the suburb having one of the largest player bases in the region for rugby league. In 2013, many of the residents played for other clubs, but this year, with that restriction lifted, more have joined the Phoenix Vikings. “They’ve all come home and it feels like home. But that was so hard. Out of 20 fullas you needed 15 of them to be new to the sport so you were constantly try-

Just trying to hold your head up was so hard after another 60 point hiding, we had two 100 point hidings last year, but now there’s no way that’d happen.” Andrew says there was a huge “roar” when Victory won it’s opening game of the season. “It was like we had won the competition. It was the monkey off the back and set up for what has become a promising season.” Victory had no true “home games” in its first seasons, but that has finally changed with Nelson Intermediate School allowing the team to use its field. The new home ground, along with a competitive team, is drawing big numbers along to support too, with around

250 often on the sideline. “That’s where I learnt to kick as a kid, I’d go down there with my home-made kicking tee and kick goals at the post, so to be able to now play down there in our own community is such a blessing.” Individuals are also being acknowledged for their efforts on the field. Another first for the club — Caleb Tauwhare and Pene Webber were named in the Tasman Titans training squad, a feat no player from the club has experienced before. Victory will still be underdogs when they take on the Richmond Rabbits in the semi-final in two weeks time and, even if they do lose, it’s safe to say 2014 will go down as the year Victory learnt the meaning of their name.

Waimea to play Wanderers in final

In a replay of last year’s division one rugby final, it’ll be Wanderers and Waimea Old Boys challenging for the title once again. Taylor’s Contracting Wanderers got past Kahurangi 32-9 in Brightwater, while Star & Garter Waimea Old Boys edged Wakatu Marist 15-3 for the first time this season, to book their place in the final at Trafalgar Park this Saturday. The day will be a big occasion for both clubs, who have their Car Company division two teams in the final at 1pm,

before the division one sides meet at 3pm. Waimea Old Boys stunned Wanderers 51-22 in the final last year to win their first title since 2002, but Wanderers have to look right back until 1955 when they last won their championship. Wanderers captain Jesse Pitman believes this weekend they can right their wrongs from last season. “We’ve worked hard and we’re really looking forward to it after how it went down last year,” he says. “Last year we just

weren’t ready, for a few of us it was our first final and we were a bit overawed by the occasion.” Waimea Old Boys captain Ben Coman says his side would not put much bearing on the fact they are defending champions, and he says Wanderers’ record makes them the favourites. “We’re conscious that we’re going into this as underdogs. Wanderers have set the bar pretty high this season and they’ve been the form side of the competition, but we’re excited about the occasion,” he says.

Football club to host 50th anniversary dinner Andrew Board Richmond’s largest sports club is preparing to celebrate its 50th anniversary next month. Richmond Athletic Football Club was founded when two clubs merged and, while its origins are a little hazy, what is known is the year club stalwart Roy Oddy was voted as the club’s first president – 1964. Current president, Stu Reid, is leading the organising efforts for the 50th celebrations and says it will honour its history as a laidback, family-friendly club that has fostered the love of the game for thousands of locals. “Many of us grew up around the clubrooms at Jubilee Park, and

it’s always been a club that has accepted and involved players and supporters of all ages and abilities.” The 50th anniversary will be held on the weekend of August 29 and 30. On Friday night there will be a meet and greet at the clubrooms on Jubilee Park, before a past verses present game on Saturday and a celebration dinner at Club Waimea later that night. Stu says registrations are now open for the celebration dinner, where a guest speaker and live band will entertain after a threecourse meal. Anyone interested in attending – not just former or current club members – can contact Stu at president@ or phone him on 027 471 4619.
