Saxton Oval stars again

Twenty-two of the world’s top cricket players showed their skills in Nelson on Tuesday – but it was Saxton Oval that was the real star. An almost capacity crowd crammed the banks of the oval for the first one day international cricket game of the summer between the Black Caps and Sri

Lanka. Saxton Oval will host another three ODIs this summer, all part of the Cricket World Cup. Main photo: Evan Barnes/Shuttersport. Insert: Graeme, Kate and Dan Oldham, all of Richmond, watch the Black Caps play Sri Lanka at Saxton Oval on Tuesday. Photo: Jacob Chandler.

Major expansion for Richmond Mall The Richmond Mall is about to get even bigger with a new multi-million dollar development of supermarket Pak ’n Save starting this week. Pak ‘n Save will be expanded by a further 750 square metres in the plan which includes a new loading dock of 620 square metres and constructing a partly-covered pedestrian walkway joining Richmond Mall with Kmart and The Warehouse on the opposite side of the carpark.

Construction started on Monday with the demolition of the Powerstore building near the Mall’s Talbot St entrance. Powerstore is closing its doors at the mall although may reopen in Richmond if it finds a suitable premises “This is a hugely exciting new development for Richmond and Richmond Mall,” mall manager Belinda de Clerq says. “We keep growing, and this is another major improvement in the shopping experience

for all our customers.” “It’s all about convenience and better shopping. Covered walkways will give our customers safe and easy access to the mall come rain or shine.” Nelson construction company, Coman Construction, has secured the contract for the project, with on-site work lasting most of the year. The project is due for completion in time for the busy Christmas season according to Cephas Property Manage-

ment which looks after the mall. “It’s a vote of confidence in the region,” Cephas general manager, Jamie Gaskell says. “The Richmond economy has been strengthening for some time now, and this development is part of a long term plan of continued investment in Richmond’s vibrant community hub. “This project improves our customers

Richmond Pak ‘n Save is easily the largest supermarket in the top of the South Island and the new space “gives us the room to improve our shopping flow, and to present an even larger range of low-cost, high value goods to our customers” a Foodstuffs spokesperson says.

New rules will kill kids ride

WEDNESDAY 21 January 2015



Andrew Board

The operators of a charitable “Noddy Train”, which has operated in Nelson and Tasman without incident for 29 years, have been told they now need to operate within steel safety fencing – a restriction that will see “the end” of the popular train. The Noddy Train is a quad motorbike towing a trailer which is dressed up to look like a train, and reaches a top speed of 12 kilometres per hour – jogging speed. It is owned by the Nelson North Lions Club and attends around 15 community events each year including the Brightwater School Gala. Each ride costs $2 and the money is given back to the event organisers, usually netting around $200 for the schools, church galas and community groups that run the events. But the latest permit application to the Nelson City Council contained a new requirement, that the area the train operates in is fenced. Secretary of the Lions club, Peter Goodman, says he was shocked by the new rule.

The Noddy Train operated by the Nelson North Lions Club. “They’re saying ‘just because you haven’t had an accident it doesn’t mean one won’t happen’. The conditions of operation are that we have to provide barriers to the satisfaction of the local body and what they’re saying now is that we need those steel fences around the area that we’re operating, which is quite crazy.” In the past the Lions have put down cones and signs to warn people of the area they are operating in. Brightwater School principal Gerald Baldwin says the Noddy Train is always one of the highlights of their annual school gala and it “would be real a shame” it was railroaded by bureaucracy. “It’s ridiculous. It’s health and safety gone mad,” Gerald says.

Nelson City Council says the certificate of registration is issued by the Department of Labour and it does not have the authority to change the conditions of the certificate. “We have sympathy with this issue the Club is facing and are aware of other similar rides operating without fencing,” says Clare Barton, the group manager of strategy and environment. Peter says the club has written to the Labour Department to ask for some relief but if the fencing rule is enforced the club will sell the train. “It would be impossible; we’d sell the Noddy Train. We don’t make any money on it. It’s simply a charitable thing to raise money for various groups in the community.”

Financial turnaround for Suburban Club The Nelson Suburban Club’s future is looking much brighter on the back of a massive financial turnaround of $600,000. The club, based in Tahunanui, suffered a well-publicised $369,000 deficit in the 2013 financial year, leaving serious questions

about its future and various special meetings with members to find a solution. Its latest financial results show a $221,000 profit for the 2014 financial year with the turnaround put down to cost savings, as well as donations from club members.

Top students fly through diploma The careers of two Nelson trainee pilots are about to take off after they received special awards at the Nelson Aviation College graduation. Oliver Griffith and Justin Sturrock, both 20, were among 15 students who received their Diploma in Aviation at a graduation ceremony held at Petite Fleur at Seifried Estate Winery in Appleby this month. Oliver and Justin were also two of the top students with Oliver receiving the Best Academic Performance Domestic and Justin being awarded the Best All-round Flying Performance Domestic. All the students had completed a diploma in either flight instruction or airline preparation after 76 to 88 weeks of study. Oliver and Justin completed the 88-week New Zealand Diploma in Airline Preparation which Oliver says “was intensive and challenging”. “We spent the first six months in the classroom doing theory which was quite hard because we just wanted to get up in the planes,” Oliver says. “Some of the instrument theory was really challenging too but it was a very good course.” Both Justin and Oliver say they want to become commercial pilots and had already got their private pilots licences before they started the diploma. Oliver passed his private pilot’s licence in his last year at Garin

College while Justin completed his just as he started his studies at the Nelson Aviation College. Now they have graduated, the next step is to clock up the hours so that they can fly onto the radar of a big commercial airline like Air New Zealand. “We want to work as commercial pilots for an airline and fly jets,” Justin says. “Now we have the diploma, we need to get a minimum of 500 hours of flying time before we are eligible to apply for a job with a big airline.” Oliver is already accumulating flying hours working as a pilot and camera operator for Nelson-based Aerial Surveys. Justin working as a baggage handler at Air Nelson while he looks for a flying job and clocks up the hours at the Nelson Aero Club.

Justin says the diploma has given them a good start to their flying careers because it included a four-week airline integration course at the Air New Zealand Aviation Institute. “It took us through all the requirements for multi-crew operations,” Justin says. “When we fly, there’s the pilot and nobody else but on the jets there’s a co-pilot and a whole crew and you have to know how to work as part of that crew.” The other graduates were Iain Abel, Sam Arnold, Stacey Cunningham, Matthew Eastham, Raymond Frani, Melissa Laird, Scott Martin, Jayden Mossman, Scott McPake, Tobias Read, Jorge Serrano, David Turney and Chanthavy Phommasane. Nelson Aviation College’s next diploma course starts on February 16.

Fresh Choice wins beer award Monique Bergman

Fresh Choice Richmond was named winner of the Best Off Licences at the 2014 Society of Beer Advocates Awards last week. The national awards are voted by members of the Society of Beer Advocates (SOBA) and designed to recognise and encourage those who are providing outstanding products and services to the beer community and industry. Gary Watson, owner and operator of Fresh Choice Richmond, says he was ecstatic to hear they had won the popular award. “Craft beer has been a passion of ours for quite some time. Raymond Nicholson, who

runs our craft beer section, hosted craft beer evenings last year which worked very well,” he says. “As we are a little guy in terms of supermarkets, we are big supporters of boutique beers and small locally-owned breweries. People from around New Zealand comment on what a good range of craft beer we have in our store and we have even had an enquiry from a man in Australia who had heard of our selection to say he was coming over and wanted to know what times we were open”, says Gary. SOBA is a consumer-based organisation involved in educating, promoting and appreciating a diverse range of quality beer.

Lucky escape for boaties

Two children and two teenagers had a lucky escape on Monday night when they were rescued from the sea off Rocks Rd after their small inflatable boat flipped around 8pm. Search and Rescue coordinator, Constable Dave Cogger, says the children were trying to push the semisubmerged boat against the wind and the tide when they were rescued by the Coastguard and Surf Rescue. No one was wearing a life jacket. All four were taken to hospital by ambulance suffering the effects of hypothermia and taking on sea water. “It’s pretty shocking that children this young would be taken across the harbour in any boat without a life jacket, but in this inflatable boat it was incredibly risky,” Dave says.

Feedback wanted on new mountainbiking track A group of mountainbiking enthusiasts are holding a public meeting next Tuesday to seek support for plans for a new mountainbike park in the Tunnicliff Forest in Wai-iti, near Wakefield. The Tasman District Councilowned Tunnicliff Forest is a valuable recreational resource with walkers, horse riders and mountainbikers already using the area. Now a group of mountainbikers from around the Wakefield district are hoping to develop the forest into a “more organised, formal and family friendly mountainbike trail system”. Spokesperson Jude Rawcliffe says the group has already held discussions with Tasman District Council, Nelson Mountain Bike Club and Mountainbike Trails Trust about the proposal. She says the 101 hectare Tunnicliff Forest is an ideal location for a mountainbike park because it already has well-graded access roads and is not too steep. Jude says the next step is to hold the public meeting to present the plans to the community and get an indication of the amount of support for the plan. “It will have to get the support of the community to go ahead,”

Jude says. “Obviously the community will be the ones using it and they will also have to help maintain it.” Jude says it will also be important to work with existing users of Tunnicliff Forest including horse riders and walkers. The trails would not be built near popular horse riding trails around the periphery of the forest, she says. The plan already has the support of the Mountainbike Trails Trust which will be involved in the construction of the trails and trustee Chris Mildon says they are excited about the pro-

posal. “It’s an ideal location for a mountainbike park because it’s nice and flat and it has a great area of old native forest,” Chris says. “We also want to get a good spread of mountainbike facilities around the district and there’s nothing out here for the Wakefield and Brightwater communities.” Chris says the group plans to build around six trails including “family friendly trails” suitable for inexperienced riders. The public meeting is being held at 25 Totara View Road in Wakefield at 6.30pm on January 27.

For Tyrell Archibald, life was good, he had a loving wife Nyssa and beautiful twin daughters and was about to start building their dream home. Sadly, those dreams were shattered in 2012, when the 35 year old builder was diagnosed with Colorectal Cancer. Tyrell had always loved his family’s fourth generation farm in Mahana and plans for a house had begun, but these were put on hold while he concentrated on fighting his illness. In 2013, he hoped the cancer had been beaten and started

building plans again, when in November he suffered another setback, a perforated bowel. This resulted in him having to be fed through a tube for a year and building plans were again put aside. At the end of November 2014, he was dealt the strongest of blows when he was told the cancer had returned and this time had spread to his lungs and prostate. The doctors advised it was terminal and he had six to nine

months to live. During this time, in a cruel twist of fate, tragedy struck the young family again, when his mother passed away suddenly and Nyssa’s mother passed away just after Christmas. However, despite all of this, he had never given up on his dream of building his family a home, and his friends and family rallied around to make his dream become a reality. “I always wanted to give the kids what I had growing up, if they have anything like I had they will enjoy it”, says Tyrell.

home for sick father Anderson have been the driving force behind the scenes, fundraising and gathering support. They’ve organised various activities and started Project Archibald on the Givealittle website, which has raised over $35,000 for the cause. “So many people have helped with this project on all levels, and people have been turning up to the site offering things such as materials, their time and baking”, says Tyrell. All builders on site are donating their time and Tyrell’s best friend, Ben Robson, quit his job in Australia to work on the build for as long as it takes to complete. “It has been a very humbling experience, I have had a connection with most of the people helping in some way or another but didn’t really know them too well. I flatted with the scaffolder and there is another guy I went to school with, and they’ve all come together to help out. Two of the builders used to be my apprentices and it is quite funny that they now think they are the bosses.’ He says the last thing he wants is for people to think that they have to work on the house. “I hope they are enjoying it. I don’t want them to feel they have to do it”, says Tyrell. Tyrell is still in control of the building project and the builders run everything by him first, but

realise that he may have to take a step back if his next bout of chemotherapy, which starts this week, has the same ill side-effects as his first bout. “It has been my dream to build here for so long. I want to be hands-on and don’t want to sit down and watch it go up before my eyes. If I am sick and the chemo doesn’t give me a better quality of what life I have left, then there is no point in me doing it if it prolongs my life by one or two more months that would be nice,” says Tyrell. Even though he is not well and times are tough, Tyrell and his wife Nyssa still manage to tease each other and joke. He says that he wants the building process to ultimately be a happy and fun experience. They hope the new house will be finished by the time winter kicks in and before the twins start at Mahana School in August. The four year old girls are very excited about their new house and have been helping their dad on site, wearing their own builder aprons and hammering in nails. When asked what they love about their dad they both say “he is the best dad in the world because he takes us to the new house and buys us ice cream”.

Tapawera artists ready for exhibition Monique Bergman Over the past 12 years the Visual Arts Society of Tapawera’s membership has grown and so has the group’s artistic reputation, which will be on view for all to see at their annual exhibition. The display, featuring artists from the area and its surrounding valleys, attracts several hundred visitors each year and is renowned for its high quality. It includes paintings and creations using a wide range of different media and all artworks are for sale to the public. This year’s guest artist is Gwen Nicolson from Brightwater, who specialises in sculpture us-

Volunteers for cricket, Wednesday, January 14: More than 50 people came forward to volunteer for the Black Caps game at Saxton Oval yesterday, after a story was published in Waimea Weekly last week. Hayden Bryant of Sport Tasman says more than 30 of those came forward within 24 hours of the Nelson Weekly coming out and the rest the day after, when the Waimea Weekly was delivered. Veca Restored, Wednesday, 17, December: After the story of the re-launched boat Veca, Waimea Weekly received an email from Nelson’s Colin Harrison. After Roy Harvey built the boat in 1929 and sold it in 1941 due to the rise in petrol during WWII, Colin’s grandfather, Bob Gibbons purchased it in the 1950s, berthing it at Port Nic in Wellington. He then sold it in the early 1960s. The boat was then bought back in 1968 by Roy Harvey’s son Bruce Harvey, returning it to the family that have now owned it for nearly five generations. The boat has recently undertaken a refit and is out on the water again under the ownership of Roy Harvey’s granddaughter Judith Glue and her husband Pete Glue.

Temperatures off the mark: Something seriously needs to be done about our temperatures!! On the news tonight it said we got to 25! Yet at 7.10pm I took this photo and it showed 26! You would think it got cooler but obviously not!! I know they take the temperature out at the airport but I think something needs to be done about this as it is not a true, fair reading! I mean to say WHO lives at the airport!! If true readings were done then maybe more people would want to come see our stunning city!! Sarah-Hope Bailey.

Bomb threat at Nelson WINZ office: Of all the regions, the Nelson and Blenheim staff have had the most of this life-threatening crap to deal with. They deal with upset and angry people as part of their jobs, but death threats and burning down work places on Christmas morning.... seriously, such A-holes! I’m so sick of this crap. Take away their help give them a shovel and a paddock where they can either dig for water and plant veges or dig a hole and jump in! Plenty of people struggle to make ends meet and pay bills. Those who fall on hard times deserve respect and help and a community who are there for them. But death threats, murders and the rest, that is just disgusting! Amanda Cuff.

numbers to cater for. Along with ice, the team also has a supply of glassware that is free of charge to hire when you purchase alcohol for a function; they’ll even lend you a bar to set up at no cost. These additional services give Super Liquor that friendly, personal touch that their customers love and are what makes Super Liquor a trusted name in the community. Super Liquor Richmond is heavily involved in the community through their support of several sporting teams. “They support us, so we support them,” says Maree, and this includes the Nelson Speedway association, Nelson Tigers, Waimea Old Boys, Wanderers Rugby Club, Brent Nicholls Racing and The Stables Richmond Rabbits league team. Supporting locals is an important aspect of the business and it isn’t just the community’s sports teams who benefit. Maree understands how hard it can be to fundraise successfully which is why, on more than one occasion, they’ve set up the barbeque outside to raise money for kids working towards trips like World Challenge, and customers love their dedication to the community too says Maree. Super Liquor Richmond and Tahuna pride themselves on great customer service, which is another reason why they’re such a popular choice for those after their favourite drop. “The staff that are here have been here for quite a considerable length of time,” says Maree, and their years of knowledge, as well as training from Super Liquor Holdings, has meant they are, more often than not, able to help customers with any questions or decisions. Whether you’re after a bottle of wine to complement you cooking or you’re trying to suss out the perfect gift for someone special, the Super Liquor team will come to your aid and make sure you walk out the door with what you need. Don’t hesitate to take advantage of their knowledge or advice; they’re always happy to help. With so much variety to choose from, it might not be possible to decide which gift to get someone, in which case a Super Liquor gift voucher will be much appreciated for that

also showcase an impressive number of Barrel Racers. “We have a record number of barrel racers competing, which is fantastic. Often we might have 13, 15 or 18; if we had 20 it would be big, but this year we will have over 30, including top New Zealand barrel racers, so that’s amazing, and that’s an event requiring total balance, total speed and total control. The training for those girls to get to that level is amazing.” There are over 200 entries into this year’s rodeo, which kicks off at 11:30am with bucking broncos and barrel racing. The local barrel racing lets children from local pony clubs enter on the day for $5. It’s a great chance to get into the spirit of the rodeo for any young, aspiring cowboy or cowgirl and “to ride their horses amongst thousands of people is pretty cool,” says Tina. There will be calf rides for kids under 40kg - children can bring a long-sleeved shirt and a pair of long trousers and ride their own bucking bronco before the second division events finish around 1pm and the grand entry begins. Canadian announcer David Adams will lead the day’s proceedings, bringing an authentic Canadian twang to the rodeo. The flags of Canada, USA, Australia

It’s rough, it’s tough, it’s the Richmond Rodeo, and it’s coming to you again from the Richmond show grounds this weekend. The annual rodeo will once again entertain its audience with the thrills, spills and action that have made it a favourite on the community calendar, so come on down for a day of rodeo fuelled fun. The Richmond Rodeo is part of a national circuit where cowboys and cowgirls compete around the country in a bid for prize money. The more money won, the more points earned, with the main goal being a spot in the top eight for the National title. There’s a lot of commitment required to travel, with horse in tow, to rodeos around the country, but to get the most points it’s in every serious cowboy and cowgirl’s interest to participate in as many as possible. This year’s rodeo will include riders from Kaitaia to Invercargill and, with national title holders competing in every event, there’s sure to be some impressive sights for spectators. Some of the South Island’s top bronco stock, purposebred for rodeos, will be taking to the arena, along with a truck load of 8 Second Bulls ready for a chance to toss some cowboys. Richmond Rodeo secretary, Tina Angus-Phyn, says the event will

SPORT Triple gold for Richmond’s Isabel

Richmond Athletics Isabel Neal became the first member of the club to receive a Nick Willis Scholarship after she won three gold medals at the South Island Colgate Games at the Caledonian Ground in Dunedin last weekend. Isabel, 13, won the 100m, 200m and 400m to complete a sprints triple in the girls 13 age group at the games for seven to 14 year olds. And that performance was enough for her to be awarded one of the four Nick Willis Scholarships that give aspiring young athletes $500 to help further their sporting goals and dreams. It is the second scholarship that Isabel was been awarded after receiving Motueka High School’s Emerging Talent scholarship. Isabel, who lives in Mapua, will be attending Motueka High School this year when

George after first win as a pro Nelson road cyclist George Bennett’s big goal this season is to break through for his first win as a professional rider. George headed across the Tasman last week to join his new World Tour team, TeamLottoNL, for the season-opening Santos Tour Down Under. Although he has performed creditably in a number of big tours since turning professional in 2012, the 24-year-old has yet to win a stage or one-day race - something he is determined to change. “I really want to win a race that’s my big goal. I won a few when I first went overseas but haven’t got a win since I turned pro. “I need to get a win and get that unreal buzz when you cross the line first. I’m in pretty good shape physically and mentally and I’m joining a really good team so hopefully I can do it.” George will have his first opportunity to chase a stage win in the Tour Down Under which started on Tuesday. “I won’t be in top shape for the race but I love racing in the heat so who knows. I’ll also be better off than a lot of the European-based guys who will be jet-lagged and coming out of their winter.” As well as chasing his first win, George also wants to try and deliver more consistent results. Although George experienced some exhilarating highs with

George Bennett takes a corner during the Tineli Tour de Vineyards earlier this month. Photo: Evan Barnes/ Cannondale last season, including a top 10 start to the Vuelta Espana, he also plummeted to some soul-destroying lows. “I need to be more consistent and a big part of that will be being managed a lot better at my new team. They are very big on sports science and nutrition and that’s going to help me take the next step up. “I haven’t met them yet but I’ve been in contact and I really like what I’ve seen. I’ve also had a really good off-season in Nelson and feel good mentally and physically.” George says the Tour Down

Under will be followed by a team training camp in Spain before racing in a series of oneday and stages races including Paris-Nice and Ciclista a Catalunya in March. If he shows good form in those races, it will increase his chances of being selected for the bigger tours later in the season. “I’m really excited about my new team and getting back to the pro-tour. I will be riding for Wilco (team-mate Wilco Kelderman) in the early races but after that it will depend on how I go.” The 863km Tour Down Under finishes on Sunday.

Waimea Harrier earns life membership Simon Bloomberg

A rugby player and cricketer who only took up running when he left school has been made a life member of the Waimea Harriers. Competitive running wasn’t even on Craig Harford’s radar when he was a student at Waimea College where he played the more traditional sports of rugby and cricket. Although he is still a cricket fan, planning a trip to South Africa this year for the World Golden Oldies Cricket Festival in Cape Town, Craig’s sporting passion for the last 30 years has been running. “I gave up rugby when I was 18 and was looking for something different,” Craig says. “I was living in Appleby at the time and someone I worked with said ‘why don’t I try running’ so I did. “I really enjoyed the freedom of running and being able to go anywhere. I was also doing a bit of road cycling at the time too but was getting frustrated because it was limited to the roads - it was more fun going running and getting off the beaten track.” Craig joined Waimea Harriers in 1985 and started competing in club races around Nelson. He especially enjoyed the Queen Charlotte Relay and club cross-country races finishing third in the annual Parker Shield when it was held around the old Ngawhatu farm in the late 1980s. “Club running was a lot more competitive back then. Waimea Harriers had 10 senior men’s teams in the Queen Charlotte Relay one year which is pretty amazing. “I did a few marathons but mainly enjoyed cross-country races and training around places like Rabbit Island and along the banks of the Waimea River. I could run 10 kilometres in around 37 minutes in those days but really I

never more than just a good club runner.” It was only a matter of time before Craig started helping run the club, serving on the committee and spending six years as vice-president or president and seven as club captain. He also spent countless hours helping set up courses and is presently planning the half marathon course for the South Island Masters Games in Nelson in October. “It’s what happens when you join a club. Someone tapped me on the shoulder and said it’s your turn, so I joined the committee.” Waimea Harriers’ Alan West says Craig has “particular expertise at organising events and, as well as Saturday runs, has organised relay teams, club trips and created, measured and set-up running courses”. “He has also been the liaison person with the South Island Masters Games and has been a main organiser of their running events over many years.” Alan says it is fitting that Craig received his life membership this year when Waimea Harriers is celebrating its 50th Jubilee.

Feedback sought – Rural land use and subdivision policy review In recent months, the Council has been preparing changes to rural land use and subdivision provisions in its Tasman Resource Management Plan. Feedback on a Draft Plan Change is now being sought from residents. The proposed changes could provide opportunities for rural housing and subdivision with specific opportunities for rural commercial activities, cooperative living and rural-residential development. The new ideas have been developed from an earlier period of consultation on issues and options and Council workshops on the feedback received. The Council is now seeking public input into the Draft Plan Change until the end of March 2015. Public evening meetings have been organised to enable community discussion on the proposed changes: • 17 February 2015, 5.00 pm – 9.00 pm, Wakefield – Wakefield Fire Station • 19 February 2015, 5.00 pm – 9.00 pm, Takaka – Takaka Bowling Club • 24 February 2015, 5.00 pm – 9.00 pm, Motueka – Motueka Hall supper room. These sessions are open to the public, with staff and Councillors attending to discuss the proposed changes. A presentation with a question and answer session will run each evening from 6.30 pm. To find out more and see a copy of the draft Plan Change you can go to the Council’s website or view at the Council’s Service Centres. For more information about the rural review and the Draft Plan Change contact: Sonya Leusink-Sladen, Email: or Mary Honey, Email:

Do you have a great community arts project that needs some money to make it happen? Tasman District Council’s Creative Communities Scheme has money to help groups and individuals running arts projects in the Tasman District. Creative Communities provides funding to support community involvement in the arts, whether that’s music, theatre, festivals, mural painting, outdoor sculptures, art in public spaces, kapa haka, singing, art workshops or something else. Funded by Creative New Zealand, the Council’s Creative Communities Scheme is designed to support opportunities for communities, urban or rural, to have a go at art whether it’s for hobby or to develop a career, said fund co-ordinator Mike Tasman Jones. “We’re looking for art projects with broad community involvement, involve young people or projects that support the diverse arts and cultural traditions of local communities.” The Tasman Creative Communities Scheme funding in 2014 enabled theatre groups like “Body and Space” to workshop “The Map” with local Golden Bay performers aged 13 to adults before the community performance. The Embroiders Guild were able to host a weekend of workshops for beginners to “old hands”, budding authors were able to attend a “Breaking into Print” workshop, 50 members of the Mapua community were able to roll up their sleeves, mix up the grout and mosaic one wall of the public toilets and 500 Richmond residents watched a large cast of locals at the outdoor summer theatre in Washbourn Gardens. The Creative Communities Scheme funding, alongside a huge amount of energy and enthusiasm from the applicants, is what enabled these opportunities and many others to take place. If you have a great community arts project needing some dollars to make it happen the Tasman Creative Communities Scheme maybe just what you’re looking for. There are three rounds of applications per year. The next round closes on 10 March 2015, for projects starting after 1 April, the next rounds later in 2015 close 10 July and 10 November. There is $39,007.80 allocated per annum with allocations averaging $1,000. For application forms go to and search ‘creative communities’ or contact Mike Tasman-Jones on Ph. 03 543 8400 for further information.
