Top night for hospitality Nelson’s top restaurants, bars, baristas, doormen and chefs were recognised at the Nelson Hospitality Awards last night – with The Indian Cafe taking home the award for top restaurant. The awards are held every two years and showcase the best the industry has to offer in the region. They are judged by a mix of experts, industry representatives and from members of the public.

The Indian Cafe was the big winner, taking home the coveted restaurant of the year award, as well as the best ethnic restaurant, while its waitress Denise Gibson won the award for best waiter/ maitre d’. Best bar went to the Speight’s Ale House, which also won the best entertainment category and the top ambience and service award. While one of its bartenders, Riley

Andrew Board Editor

Burrows, won the award as the region’s best bar person. Other major awards included the best head chef, which went to Neil Ward from Cafe in the Vineyard at Waimea Estate, and best barista, which was awarded to Noel Young from Sublime.

The Wooden Spoon won the best cafe award and Jester House the best suburban venue. Other winners were the Pizza Bar for best host responsibility, The Styx for best beverage list, and Nemo Nepe for best door person. Mediterranean Foods won the award for best supplier and Chris Harding from Bidvest was voted as the best sales representative. Around 300 people turned out

for the awards at the Rutherford Hotel last night and organiser Harry Morris says it was a huge success and a great opportunity to celebrate success in the industry. “Especially for the pubic to have a chance to vote for who they think is the best. It’s a great celebration for the industry.” Full details on all the winners will be published in next week’s Nelson Weekly.

Being a taxi driver, Peter Combes hears plenty of great yarns. But having just retired after 43 years in the same job, it’s fair to say he’s got plenty of his own to tell too. When he first started at Nelson Taxis the industry was regulated and the Government restricted the number of taxis in each area. There were 27 in Nelson, one in Stoke and three in Richmond. Nowadays there are more than double that. Peter — who lives in a motorhome and is already planning to spend most of his retirement fishing — is a reserved man. But even he chirps up when he recalls the story of his longest fare. “I started at six in the morning. Some seamen got in touch with me at midday

to go to Lyttelton. They used to other so I knew what was gofly them but the weather was ing to happen. We got to the bad so they’d pay for them to corner where Raeward Fresh catch a taxi.

motorbike theft

Police are making good progress investigating the theft of a motorcycle from Morley Motorcycle and Marine in Wakatu Estate in June after last week charging a 35 year old Nelson man with burglary. Thieves stole the $6500 motorcycle after gaining entry to Morley’s by removing a shop front window on June 27. Last week, police found the motorcycle at a Christchurch address and charged a Christchurch man with receiving stolen property. Police spokesperson Barbara Dunn says they subsequently charged the Nelson man with theft of the motorcycle. The man was due to appear in the Nelson District Court on Monday - the investigation is continuing and further charges could be laid.

Stoke • Population: 17,154 • 46% of Nelson’s residents aged 65 and over live in Stoke. • Over 65s make up 22% of Stoke’s population. Nelson City councillor Gaile Noonan addresses the crowd that came to hear the results of a residents survey about Stoke last week. Photo: Jessie Johnston/Nelson Weekly graphic.

We love Stoke, but... A survey into the future of Stoke has revealed that its residents love living there but they want it to become a more vibrant community, not just “a place to use the supermarket and then get out of there”. Nelson City Council briefed residents of feedback from the recent “Spotlight on Stoke” consultation last Thursday, which focused on submissions for a new community centre. But the results proved there are plenty of other things that could be done to liven up the suburb. With 17,154 people living there, Stoke is Nelson’s second largest suburb in terms of population, and the latest Census shows it’s the fastest growing one as well. But those same statistics show that nearly half of the region’s over 65 year olds live there. Included in the 850 submis-

sions was a need for a larger variety of shops in Stoke, and more cafes and bars that open later too. “I hate it that I have to go elsewhere for shopping and entertainment needs as there is nothing here,” said a resident. Another, who admits they leave Stoke to get a decent cup of coffee, wanted a “vibrant, buzzing” community with plenty of things to do. The residents’ wish list was split into sections, under titles such as youth needs, retail, events, transport and facilities. There was plenty of support for a community centre at Greenmeadows — which council has already allocated funds for — with one submitter demanding a “vibrant community centre

like Victory Community Centre”. One youth said Stoke wasn’t a destination for teenagers; they tended to stay home or go to town to hang out instead. “Stoke needs more recreational facilities for young people that are created and designed by young people.” In general, the feedback suggested Stoke is looking tired. But Nelson mayor Rachel Reese says the council is definitely listening. “The participation and enthusiasm from the people of Stoke in this initial information gathering phase has been fantastic. The quality and consistency of feedback received has given the council clear direction.” What do you think Stoke needs? Is it fine the way it is?

New Zealand’s champion brewer Martin Townshend has come a long way since he made his first beer. Last Thursday, Martin’s Upper Moutere-based brewery was named New Zealand’s Champion Brewery at the Brewers’ Guild of New Zealand Beer Awards in Wellington. Townshend Brewery won an incredible 12 medals, including five golds, as well as the Champion New Zealand Manufacturer trophy and the New Zealand Specific Style category for his Oldham’s Tap Riwaka Pilsner. Martin’s one-man operation showed that big is not necessarily good as he outclassed some of the giants of New Zealand brewing including DB and Lion. But Martin admits he has learned a lot since his first venture into the world of beer brewing back in 1994. “I was working on an orchard at Mariri with a South African and Swede and we started brewing beer for all the pickers around the area. We brewed 60 litres of home brew every six days and had these great parties - the beer was terrible but it was cheap.” These days Martin’s operation is far more sophisticated, with

Photo: Simon Bloomberg. all the latest equipment that helps him produce 1700 litres of beer a week. Although Townshend Brewery’s already excellent reputation has been enhanced by last week’s big win, Martin says being a commercial brewer is not all beer and skittles. He’s worked hard to expand his brewery from the small six by three metre shed he built at the back of his house in 2004, estimating that he bottled close to 250,000 beers by hand before allowing himself the luxury of buying a $135,000 bottling plant. “It’s been really hard work because the standard of beer in New Zealand is so

high. We’ve managed to grow and had some good success, but all that has meant is that we can go on a holiday once a year now instead of once every three years - it’s really a labour of love for me.” Townshend Brewery’s won gold medals for its Flemish Stout, Black Strap Porter, Kings Landing Scotch Ale, Oldham’s Tap Riwaka Pilsner (with Liberty Brewery) and Tiebreak Summer Ale (with 666 Brewing). Nelson’s McCashin’s Brewery also won gold for its Stoke Recognition Rich Porter, while Sprig & Fern won gold for its Harvest Pilsner.

MP wants marine museum

Simon Bloomberg Reporter

Kahurangi National Park Rat and Possum Control Operation

As part of its national Battle for our Birds programme, the Department of Conservation (DOC) is undertaking aerial pest control to protect native species from beech mast predator plagues that could decimate their numbers. The pest control will also target possums.

A collection of “amazing marine creatures” will be one of the big attractions at a new fishing museum and marine education centre to be established in the Plant and Food building on Rocks Road in Nelson. The marine museum is one of five projects on Nelson MP Nick Smith’s to-do-list which he announced at his election campaign launch at the Boathouse last Thursday. The private collection of “hundreds of specimens of seabirds, fish, marine mammals” had been purchased by Peter Talley, who last week donated it to the newly formed trust that will manage the marine museum project. “This new centre is about asserting and celebrating our status as New Zealand’s fishing capital and the largest fishing port in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s the right idea, right time and right place,” Nick says. The centre will also have live fish in aquariums and “a place where children get their hands wet and learn about the marine environment”. It will feature displays of the history of Nel-

Description of the area.

Approximately 270,000 ha Kahurangi National Park and other Conservation managed land between the Owen Valley in the south to Parapara Peak/Kahurangi Point in the north. The operation extends from western boundary at the coastline north from Kohaihai to the Wangapeka River boundary /Mt Arthur Range in the east. Major areas include (but not limited to): Heaphy Track; Wangapeka Track; Mt Owen; Cobb Valley and part of the Mt Arthur Tablelands.

Method of control

Cereal baits containing the pesticide 1080 will be distributed by helicopter over the above area. The 1080 baits are cylindrical pellets approximately 2-3 cm long, cinnamon-lured and dyed green. The 1080 operation will be preceded by an application of non-toxic prefeed baits. The non-toxic prefeed baits are 2 cm long and not dyed.

Always remember when in the area:

• DO NOT touch bait or bait bags • WATCH CHILDREN at all times • DO NOT eat animals from this area • DO NOT allow DOGS access to animal carcasses Observe these rules whenever you see warning signs placed at the public access ways in the above area. All public walking tracks within the area will be closed during and immediately following the 1080 operation until a track inspection is completed. Warning signs will be placed at all normal points of entry to the area and at huts within the area immediately prior to the 1080 operation.

Commencement Date

The operation will commence with a single application of non-toxic prefeed baits on or after 1 September 2014. The application of 1080 bait will follow at least five days later. The area is divided in five operational blocks which may be treated at different times. The actual date of all parts of the operation will depend on the availability of periods of suitable weather. For further information contact the following offices of the Department of Conservation: Takaka Office: 62 Commercial St, Takaka (03) 525 8026. Motueka Office: Cnr King Edward & High Sts, Motueka (03) 528 1810. Westport Office: Russell St, Westport (03) 788 8008. A detailed map of the treatment area may be viewed at these offices (11am to 3pm Monday to Friday)

The animals, which were preserved by a Whangarei taxidermist and owned by a private collector, were purchased by Peter about 15 years ago, Nick says.

ACC pays $23m to Nelson Labourers, carpenters and joiners have had the most work-related accidents in the past 12 months, according to an ACC injury comparison report which says it paid out more than $23 million to Nelson residents during the year. The annual report, which accounts for the 2012/13 financial year, was released last week and includes statistics on the total number of claims, how much was paid out, and which occupations and sports caused the most inju-

ries across 72 different territorial authorities in New Zealand. From the 72, Nelson City is ranked 28th in terms of the most injury-prone, with Tasman in 48th position. If it was separated by region, Nelson City would the most injuryprone and Tasman the least, but unlike most other regions in New Zealand, they are not comprised of a number of smaller territorial authorities which can average out the injury rate.

Locally Owned and Operated

Nelson City Injury report 2012/13

Number of claims Total payout $ 19,062 23,674,005 Number of days lost productivity: 104,045 Most injury-prone occupations: labourers, carpenters, joiners Top cause Loss of balance: 27.20%

Top scene of injury Home: 53.10%

ACC paid out $23,674,005 to Nelson residents, with 19,062 claims made. The claims rate per 10,000 of the population was 4073. In to-

tal, 104,045 days of productivity were lost. Those statistics are up very slightly from 2011/12 when 19,030 claims totalled a pay-out of $22,859,252. In Tasman, where fruit growers, carpenters, joiners and livestock producers made the most work-related claims, a total of $26,021,239 was paid out in 2012/13. The number of claims was 18,044 and the claims rate per 10,000 of the population was just 3712. Those statistics were up

from the 17,646 claims made the year prior, when $25,743,521 was paid out. When comparing the type of injuries reported in both Nelson and Tasman, ACC says one of the major factors is the population demographic. Nelson, with an older population, exceeds the national average injury rate in two areas; falls and water sport related injuries, while Tasman exceeds the national average in work and water sport related injuries.

Final days for charity drive applications The latest entry in the Car Company Charity Drive, Nelson’s Youth and Community Trust, is gaining a high profile from some of the concerts it is staging for the region’s youth, but there’s much more to the charity than fun and games. The trust was formed in 2002 with the aim of adding value to young people’s lives and helping them achieve their goals. It has helped organise popular alcohol and drugfree musical events, and also promotes recreational services for young people by way of The Truck. The trust’s Nelson Underage hit the headlines when they joined forces with Smokefreerockquest to stage the Broods concert at the Theatre Royal in June. The concert was a sell-out and Nelson Underage organiser Nathan Telford is hoping their next event featuring international DJs performing at the Tahunanui Skating Rink

on September 27 will be just as popular. The Truck is also proving to be a big hit taking its mobile recreation facilities, which includes a skatepark, basketball hoops and touch and football equipment, to schools and sports grounds around Nelson. “We get 100 to 120 teenagers a week at the Truck. We cover the Victory community, the YMCA, Nelson Intermediate, Broadgreen, Stoke Youth and go to Saxton Stadium,” Nathan says. “It’s going very, very well.” But trust manager David Atoa says there’s a serious side to their services because they also provide accommodation and care for at-risk youth. “These teenagers might have come from a situation where the family has broken down and need a place to stay for two or three days,” David says. “It Locally Owned and Operated

happens in Nelson more than you think.” David says they also help young people cope with the big step from school into the workforce through their Youth Transition services. Staff help youth with writing CVs and job placement and provide mentoring to help them through what can be a challenging stage of their lives. David says the trust is funded by the Nelson City Council as well as from community grants from groups including the Canterbury Community Trust. “We have a very dedicated staff and volunteers and get some funding but it is limited. We could do so much more and provide a much better service for the region’s youth if we had more funding.” The Car Company Charity Drive competition offers $10,000 to a non-profit group or organisation in the NelsonTasman region. It has attracted 58 entries with the winner to be named on The Breeze radio show on September 5.

Kaye McNabb, the chief executive of Nelson Airport Ltd, has been selected as a finalist in the national Women of Influence Awards. Now in its second year, the Women of Influence Awards are about identifying the bold, energetic women who are helping shape New Zealand and its future across eight categories. The judges are looking for women who are having an impact well beyond their formal roles and titles at local, regional and national levels. “It was quite humbling as well as a real honour to have been asked by Jane McSpirit, Bank Manager at Westpac Nelson, to accept a nomination for the these awards” says Kaye , “and it was an even bigger surprise and very exciting to be notified that I was a finalist”. Kaye McNabb. Kaye has been nominated for the category “Local and Regional” which recognises women who are having an impact at a local or regional level. Kaye sits on the executive committee of the New Zealand Airports Association and a number of working groups for the Civil Aviation Authority and Ministry of Transport. She also chairs the Top of the South Aviation Cluster and Strategy Committee, both of which work to grow and promote the aviation industry in the region. Kaye also serves on a number of consulting and working groups in respect of CAA and Ministry of Transport legislation reviews, is a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Management, a member of the Institute of Directors and a Justice of the Peace.

Bob Howard was already three days out of Nelson when message got through to his father that he’d joined a merchant ship headed for London. It was 1947, he was just 16 years old, and his father didn’t like that very much. But there was nothing he could do, with Bob at sea for the next 77

days aboard the Pamir. On the first day Bob was taken aloft, 51 metres off the deck. “You’re standing on a wire rope and he was saying what to do but to be perfectly honest I was just hanging on for grim death,” he says. But he quickly became accustomed to the height. There were other things to worry about back then anyway, as it was right at the end of the Second World War. “I remember seeing all of the ships sticking out of the

Bob — the only person in Nelson to have sailed round Cape Horn in a ship — will be commemorating Merchant Navy Day this Saturday. Seaman Dave Lawes, says is it a time to recognise the men that did very little in return. A commemoration ceremony will be held on August 30 at Anzac Park beginning at 11am.

Short of workers: I'm a nurse who works at a resthome in Nelson and we recently lost one of our best Health Care Aids who has been with us for eight years. Last night we needed staff and the area-wide agency service had none available. It is very hard to get staff (all resthomes face this problem) and yet our best worker is now facing deportation because the Government will not renew her work visa. A society is judged by how well we care for the most vulnerable. If we want to look after our elderly, then the public should be aware of this situation. Thank you, Corinne. Free Parking: Keep free parking and warnings only for WOF and registrations please. (Via text). Smart metres: I am writing this letter to ask readers to make their own informed decision before they agree to have a smart power meter installed on their property. Don’t be forced into ‘going with the flow’. On Friday night I attended a public meeting about smart meters. I understand the media had been asked to attend, but none were present. Two separate audience members had become extremely ill following

If you Google, you will find many countries worldwide have set up websites and petitions to delay the installation of smart meters, demanding testing of levels of radio waves emission. Download or borrow from The Life Centre in Nelson the 84 min DVD ‘Take Back Your Power’ and check out nz. Remember it is not compulsory to have a smart meter installed. Lois Moreland. Nelson College downed in Press Cup: Wow, that's a big win. But round of applause to our Nelson boys, well done on getting into the final. It's not all about winning, its about how well you all play as a team, and getting to that stage. Heart and soul boys, we're still proud of you all. Tu meke. Sharon May Patterson. Vehicles stolen: Yes and one of the scooters was Joel Emery-Jones', need to catch these mongrels. David-Karen Jordan. Bas**rds!!!!! Saw this in the paper last night [Tuesday], but think my car being tampered with, might be related to the burglaries that happened at Esthers and at a house very close to mine. Julie Marriott.

Yes they were robbed while asleep in their house. Makes me so mad... Rebekah Joy. Which area were these stolen in? There's a certain family that constantly steal and/or break into homes or vehicles. This @^%# has got to stop. Jae Walter. Southern Link: When decisions are made to build new roads and change traffic flows, it is usually to free up traffic clogged town centres by building a bypass. A section of countryside is selected for the new road and the town is freed from its traffic burden. Here in Nelson the opposite is being demanded by a small minded group who are ignoring the detrimental environmental and health effect the Southern Link will have on hundreds of families living in the Victory and Bishopdale areas and Nelson as a whole. Rocks Rd performs a very effective job as a bypass for the town centre. It makes absolutely no sense to put traffic back through built up areas. A new road is not needed. It will not solve any of the claimed traffic issues in Nelson. All traffic will still be going through the Annesbrook roundabout. We need to look at longer term, sustainable traffic management. Ian Millward.

Save & Win $5,000 with NBS Target . . . Have you heard?

Every month NBS gives away $5,000 cash.

How can you win? All you need is an NBS Target Account, with an opening deposit of $100, and every one hundred dollars in your Target Account equals one more chance to win.

Gigatown Nelson volunteer Peter Foster and Uniquely Nelson’s Cathy Madigan are encouraging people to support the region’s Gigatown effort. Photo: Phillip Rollo.

What is NBS Target? NBS Target is an interest bearing savings account, earning interest on every dollar deposited. If you need to dip into your savings, you can withdraw once per month free of charge.

Final push for #Gigatown

How to open an NBS Target Account? Call into your local NBS branch, you’ll need an opening deposit of $100, and if you’re not already an NBS Account holder - two forms of ID and an address verification (like a power bill, or phone account). It’s that simple!

Keep up your hashtags for #GIGATOWNNSN and go online to do the quiz — that’s the message from volunteers as the final five goes down to the wire. Nelson is currently in fifth place on the Gigatown standings — where the eventual winner will have cheap access to giga-fibre and receive a $200,000 development fund — but needs to stay there by September 12 in order to make the cut. Five finalists will be named after that date, and will then go head-to-head for another month or so before the winner is announced. Gigatown Nelson volunteer Karen Lee says there has been so much support from people and businesses across the community, and it’d be great to make the final. “We’re very lucky because we’ve had such good grassroots support. This competition is aiming to build strong online communities and we’ve got that,” she says. The Gigatown Nelson office is open during the week for more information, but the most effective way to actually support the cause is to visit, choose Nelson as your town and then take part in the quiz. “We’re awfully keen to encourage people to come along and do the August quiz. On its own it’s worth 250 points, so anybody who wants to get involved still can.”

Previous $5,000 cash winners . . . Wayne Donaldson, Merrill Starling, Buelah Cowdrey, Sylvia Van der Oest, Alison Phillips, Callum Greenfield, Rosella O’Neil, Bevan & Valerie Gibbs, Pauline Prentice, Albert Gilkes, John & Teresa Balck, Walford & Irene Watkins, Alison & Tony Fowler, Sharyn & Terry Best, Aaron Inwood, Caroline & Stephen Fry.

In addition to the September $5,000 cash draw. One lucky Target Account holder from each NBS branch will win a 50” flat screen TV!

Feeding 600 guests in style

GETTING STUCK IN: Martin Rutledge and Jayarn Sheridan getting stuck in at the Cawthron Institute's planting day last Sunday. Around 50 enthusiastic volunteers gathered at Glenduan to put 700 native trees in the ground. The planting is part of a long term beautification project for Cawthron’s aquaculture park, as well as supporting habitat restoration in the area beside the Boulder Bank. Since last year’s planting, staff at the aquaculture park have already seen a return of many native bird species and hope that the efforts of everyone last Sunday will encourage more of the same ecological benefits.

Transforming Saxton Stadium into a lavish dining room and catering for almost 600 guests attending a prestigious national awards function might seem like a big ask but Petite Fleur not only helped achieve it - they did it in style. The Fulton Hogan Excellence Awards were held at Saxton Stadium on July 21 in conjunction with the Local Government of New Zealand annual conference held in Nelson. Saxton Stadium was selected as the venue for the awards function and Horst Wellmeyer and Justine Robertson of Petite Fleur were contracted to cater for 585 guests in the form of a three course set menu and wine match. It was easily the biggest assignment Petite Fleur has undertaken since starting their restaurant and catering business based at Seifried Estate in 2008. Petite Fleur had catered for up to 350 guests at Seifried Estate and Horst had previously catered for up to 2000 people working as a chef in the Middle East and Asia, but he says the Fulton Hogan Awards presented a unique set of challenges. "We are used to having enough staff at our disposal for functions but for a big, one-off event like the one at Saxton Stadium we had to recruit a lot of help," Horst says. "Catering for an off-site event also meant we

had to prepare the food here at the restaurant and transport it to the venue - it was a major logistical undertaking." Justine says they resolved the staffing issue by training 60 students from Nelson College and Nelson College for Girls as their wait staff for the function. The students received a reference from Petite Fleur as well as a discounted ticket for their school ball which was held at Petite Fleur at Seifried Estate. Petite Fleur also had a dedicated band of about 58 friends and family helping their regular staff to look after the drinks and food. "We had 110 people and most of them were inexperienced so we had briefings and a dress rehearsal the night before," Justine says. Horst says all the food was prepared at Petite Fleur's restaurant before transporting it to Saxton Stadium on the night. "It was a big day. We started at eight in the morning and didn't finish until two or three in the morning," he says. Saxton Pavilion was decorated by Christchurch company Event Impressions and Horst and Justine say the Cinderella-like transformation was amazing. "It was a really good team effort by everyone and it just goes to show that the region can pull together such a fantastic event."

Students get down to business They may still be at school but that didn’t stop the region's Young Enterprise Scheme businesses selling and promoting their products with the ease and confidence of professionals. There were 23 businesses flaunting their wares at last Saturday's Nelson market, as part of the overall scheme, which runs throughout the year. Students came up with a business idea in term one, which was then presented to the "Dragon's Den".

Now in the third term of their of the scheme, the focus is solely on selling their products to the public. There was a huge selection of products at the market from clothing, jewellery, skin care and furniture, and the students excelled when it came to interacting with the public. The winner was Nelson College’s Vivacity and their daffodil rings that had links to the Cancer Society. Their prize was a free market stall for four weeks and $100.

Pines chase third national title The Richmond Mall Pines headed to Tauranga on Monday, chasing their third national title in as many years. The Nelson Pines have won the Volleyball New Zealand Club Championship twice in the past two years, and while the bulk of the squad remains intact for this week’s competition, coach Colin Redpath isn’t expecting an easy ride. “Our aim is to win it, but the top three or four teams are definitely stronger this year, so we’ll have to be another step up,” he says. Colin says there are about five different teams capable of winning the title this year, including perennial favourites Sparta, who compete out of Auckland, last year’s finalists Harbour Raiders, a team which his son Jack now plays for, hometown team Mauao Reds, and South Island rivals Shirley Silverbacks out of Christchurch. The Nelson Pines squad is built around New Zealand captain

Patrick Shone, who was last year’s MVP, and Ben Glue, who was named best spiker at the tournament last year. Just four of the squad live in Nelson — Patrick, Harry Fergusson, Josh Ovsenek and Teryn Proracki — but most of the others are former Nelson players now living in other parts of the country, while two of the squad have been brought in from Australia. Colin says the team’s strength is their blocking ability and their championship record should give them plenty of confidence too. “We’ve got the best setter in the country and the best opposite in the country and we base the team around those two. But we’ve learnt how to win and that’s got to be a strength.” With much of the squad based outside of Nelson, The Pines have held training sessions in Wellington and tried to organise as much competition as possible around the country. But the national championship will be the first

Double glory for Federal Federal have done the double, winning the division one men’s and women’s hockey finals on the same afternoon. Both teams got the better of Tasman, with the women getting the ball rolling with a 3-2 win at Saxton Field, before rising star Jesse Forsyth scored just seconds before fulltime to secure a 2-1 win in the men’s final. Coach Craig Brett says it has been a special season for the Federal club — with both teams winning the Top of the South titles as well. “We’ve won the premier women and the mens so it’s been a big season for us,” he says. “There’s a few trophies coming Federal’s way tonight.” The Federal women won back their title after losing the final to Tasman in a pen-

FC Nelson crowned champions The senior women’s football competition trophy will have FC Nelson’s name etched into it for the first-ever time, after their 2-2 draw with Richmond Swans secured them the title. FC Nelson Pitt & Moore Women’s first XI went into Saturday’s final league match with the championship all but secured. There was only a mathematical chance that Waimea College first XI could have sneaked ahead of them. It required FC Nelson losing and Waimea College winning their match while also making up the 13 goal differential. But a second half brace

by captain Briar Luff made sure FC Nelson could decide the title on their own terms, after the new champions had trailed 2-0 at half-time. While a win would have been the perfect way to celebrate their first ever championship, coach Mullet Watkinson had no complaints from a season where his side lost just once and conceded a meagre eight goals in 18 games. “We’ve been getting better year by year. We’ve been fourth and third, and now finally we have the number one spot, which is nice,” he says. “We’ve only lost once this sea-

son and my defence has just been magic.” Nelson Bays Football has two women’s divisions, one which plays on Saturday and one which plays on Sundays. With the grades being similar in terms of quality over the years, 2014 saw all of the top teams move to Saturday, which makes the title win even more rewarding, Mullet says. “It’s nice to be the senior team that's beaten all of the college first XIs, because that’s the first time in a long time that someone else has won the league. It’s the first time we've won the league as well.”

Despite losing the Press Cup final 27-13 to Christchurch Boys' High School, Nelson College first XV manager Peter Grigg says the 2014 season has been a success. It was the second year in a row that Nelson College has reached the final, after losing to Marlborough Boys' College last year, and Peter says it was a disappointing result in an otherwise successful campaign.
