Delight as Jetstar plans Nelson flights Andrew Board

Jetstar’s proposed expansion to Nelson has been met with joy from the region’s air travellers. Last week Jetstar announced that Nelson is one of seven regional centres it is looking to expand to before the end of this year. Many air travellers expect the competition with Air New Zealand will mean cheaper

prices. The story was first reported in Nelson by, and was met with excitement and relief by many, especially online. The story attracted huge interest on Nelson Weekly’s Facebook page and on a page called “Jetstar into Nelson”, which has been campaigning for the move for several years. The administrator of the page, Martin Daly, a local church pastor, says it now has

3000 likes, up from around 1200 a week ago. “I started the page because I wanted to cause a groundswell of support to attract competition, so I am very happy with their [Jetstar’s] announcement. “This region certainly needs competition, I’ve been disgusted at the prices so this is going to be better for the region. From business to tourism and for families.” Even Nelson-based TradeMe founder Sam

Morgan expressed his delight in a Tweet to followers. “I just flew to Wellington and back for $500 on @FlyAirNZ. Be great to get @jetstar_nz to Nelson.” In another tweet he wrote: “Only takes 25 minutes to fly Nelson to Wellington, $10 per minute. Silly prices. So short-sighted

Students brave mid-winter swim

Pupils from Tahunanui School braved the cold last Friday as they took part in their annual Midwinter Swim. The swim is an annual event for the school and sees its senior students jump in the sea at Tahunanui beach. For school principal Barbara Bowen, it was her first midwinter swim as she only joined the school in April this year.

“The beach is a big part of the community so it seems natural that we come down here each year,” she says. She says the water was warmer than she expected and they couldn’t have asked for a better day. Most of the school’s senior students took part, as did teachers, other staff and some parents.

“Yes, definitely. Hopefully they will be cheaper than Air New Zealand.”

“I think it’s an excellent idea. Airfare prices are rediculous.”

“I think it’s very positive for the region. It will allow access to regions we currently can’t fly direct to.”

“Yeah, it would help bring more people to the region and it would hopefully bring prices down.”

not to have spread to an adjacent building. Three fire engines, a fire rescue truck and a HAZMAT vehicle, attended the Beatty St blaze just off Bolt Rd. Senior station officer Brian O’Donnell says, due to the nature of the building and the fact it is attached to another building under a different lease, extra fire

appliances were called in to help. “We transmitted a second alarm which gives us four pumps instead of the normal two.” Bird may have tainted water: A bird is the most likely cause of the contamination in Richmond’s new water treatment plant that resulted in the water being chlorinated and the Tasman District Council issuing a warning to Richmond residents to boil their water.

Delight as Jetstar plans Nelson flights FROM PAGE 1 screw the regions.” Nelson mayor Rachel Reese was also happy with the announcement, calling it “really exciting”. “Air traffic is really important for us, for the visitors coming here, for business travellers and for freight. What I’m looking at is an opportunity to grow the market, rather than cut the market into smaller shares. It’s a really exciting move and certainly a really positive buzz around town about the announcement.” Jetstar announced plans to start flying to regional destinations after they bought a fleet of five 50-seat Bombardier Q300 turbo-prop aeroplanes. The services are expected to operate to at least four regional destinations initially, with some of those under consideration being Hamilton, Rotorua, New Plymouth, Napier, Palmerston North, Nelson and Invercargill. They will fly to Jetstar’s existing destinations

in Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland and Queenstown. Regional fares will go on sale in September with first flights taking off in December. Nelson Weekly has long-reported stories of woe regarding Air New Zealand’s service to Nelson and those stories still hold the paper’s record for the most amount of reader feedback. Dissatisfaction of high prices and poor service were common. Jetstar Group CEO, Jayne Hrdlicka, says they want to bring “real competition” and stimulate regional passenger growth. “When we first started operations in New Zealand, domestic fares across the country dropped by around 40 per cent, and we expect fares will drop considerably on the regional routes where we’ll operate.” The move by Jetstar follows Kiwi Regional Airline’s plan to start flying from Nelson this spring and will add competition to Sounds Air, which also flies to Wellington from Nelson.

Jacob Chandler Two people are “extremely lucky” to have survived a freak accident on Saturday night, after the van they were driving hit a cow and then took out a power pole on the Moutere Highway. The Nelson Fire Service was called out around 9pm to assist the Richmond and Appleby crews with the rescue. It is understood a cow escaped from its nearby paddock and was on the road when the van hit it. The male driver of the van was able to get out of the vehicle but a female passenger had to be cut out. Nelson station officer Craig Davies says fire crews used the Jaws of Life and spreaders, and it took more than an hour to free the female passenger. “The power lines were down so they had to wait to be isolated before they could do any work, otherwise you get electrocuted.

Government staff threatened

Police were called to three separate threat incidents on Thursday against government staff at WINZ, ACC and the Nelson City Council, and they’ve had enough. Police are warning that such threats could carry serious consequences with a maximum penalty of seven years imprisonment. In the first incident, a 51 year old man

threatened a staff member at the Nelson WINZ office. He was arrested for using threatening language and later released with a pre-charge warning. In the second incident, a 26 year old man threatened a staff member at Nelson City Council. He was arrested for behaving threateningly and also released with a pre-charge warning. In the third incident, a 46 year old man

threatened a staff member at the Nelson ACC office. He was arrested and charged with threatening to kill and appeared in the Nelson District Court last week. Senior Sergeant Shane Miles says any threats against staff at any organisation were taken very seriously. “Anyone who is employed to do a job should not expect to be subject to any sort of threat in the course of their work.”

Work begins on Saxton Field velodrome Construction has started on Nelson’s new velodrome and the Saxton Velodrome Trust is expecting more good news with a charitable trust “close” to announcing a significant contribution to the $1.6million project. Contractors Downer started initial earthworks on the site adjacent to Garin College while Ching Contracting are putting in drains. Trust member Rob Ford says they are delighted the construction has finally started and will be even happier when they receive their latest grant. “We are in negotiations with a lot of funders, so we can’t say much,” Rob says. “But we wouldn’t have started construction if we didn’t have considerable funding and that is close to being announced.” The project is a joint-venture between Nelson City Council, Tasman District Council and the trust, with the trust expected to contribute $300,000. The trust’s marketing manager Paul Jennings says they have already received funding from the Mainland Trust and he is optimistic they can reach their target. “Mainland Trust has supplied funding and are keen to continue their support.” Paul says. “We are also looking at further grants, as well as in-kind

contributors and fund raising.” The trust has also set up a givea-little page on its website Rob says the velodrome is expected to take another 16 to 20 months to complete and he can’t wait to get on his bike and ride around the 300m track. He says the long build time is needed to allow the material, used to shape the banked track, to settle and compact before it is surfaced. Although the velodrome will be used for competitive cycling, Paul says it is being designed to accommodate a wide range of users. The velodrome will be a community facility that will be suitable for cyclists of all ages, skills and fitness levels. Pauls says the centre of the velodrome is designed for road safety training needs and will provide a safe environment for children to learn how to ride a bike, for elderly people to stay fit, and for rehabilitation after injury or illness. Sport Tasman will also utilise both the velodrome and cycle safety arena in its programmes - the velodrome will be free to use.

Suburban Club reaches 4000 members The number of members at the Nelson Suburban Club continues to surge on the back of positive financial data. Last week the club announced it had gone past the 4000 member number, achieving a self-imposed target to reach that figure before the start of July.

In May of this year, the club reported a 24 per cent rise in membership figures since September 2014, and at the same time general manager Rob Finlayson first stated that the club’s goal was to reach 4000 members and when. Rob says they’re thrilled that locals have

Nelson is set for a dramatic increase of new businesses – and all in one weekend. Nelson’s first ever Startup Weekend is being hosted by Innovate Nelson, a new facilitator developed by the Nelson City Council, Nelson EDA and NMIT to help foster innovation and entrepreneurship. Startup weekends have been held all over the world and are supported by internet giant, Google. Innovate Nelson manager Matt Pearcy says the format is proven and he’s looking forward to see what Nelsonians can come up with. “I’ve heard a good quote about it, ‘it was like doing the MBA, but in a weekend’. It’s especially good for small to medium-sized

businesses because you’re often running around doing the dayto-day things and you’re missing that excuse to look up and look at growth and strategy and those sort of things.” The weekend will be held from Friday July 24 to Sunday, July 26. It involves people being separated into teams and developing an idea into a business before it’s judged. Matt says it’s 52 hours of mayhem. “A lot of startups from these events are still going strong after three months, but the major benefit for many attendees is the experience of it.” He says experienced business people, budding entrepreneurs, developers wanting to challenge their skills or designers looking for new ideas, would all benefit from the challenge, which will be

based at NMIT. The Startup weekend is one of two major events to help launch Innovate, which was given the green light to start up in March this year. The other is Co.Starters, a tested international platform to help communities grow local business.

Co.Starters is a nine week programme which equips aspiring entrepreneurs with the tools needed to turn business ideas into action and will be introduced by its co-founder, Enoch Elwell, Tuesday night at NMIT. Matt says small business remains one of the fundamental economic PO Box 1033, Nelson 7040

Food festival to heat up Nelson winter Kate Russell Nelsonians are being encouraged to brave the cold this winter and come along to ‘Feast the Senses,’ a month-long dining out event which has been developed by Uniquely Nelson. The promotion, which runs over July, will feature some of Nelson’s finest restaurants and six ‘movable feasts’ which allow diners to enjoy three different courses in three different restaurants. Diners can also accumulate stamps when they spend more than $10 at a Nelson cafe or restaurant and go in the draw to win dining prizes. Also on offer will be ‘Illuminate’ which will feature illuminated art around 27 of the city’s shop windows. To round the month off, Old St Johns will offer three concerts for the ‘Deep in the Bleak’ musc festival. Uniquely Nelson manager Cathy Madigan says that she saw a real

need for a winter event in the city with the Light Nelson Festival and Winter Music Festival not happening this year, and developed the promotion based on similar events she had seen while living in Melbourne. “This will be a real first for Nelson, and we’re planning on making it an annual thing” she says. “It’s a great opportunity for locals to get out and enjoy dining in the city.” Cathy says that she is hoping to work collaborativey with Light Nelson and the Winter Music Festival in 2016. Illuminate has been designed specifically to become a feature of Light Nelson Festival and bring the festival beyond Queens Gardens and into the city. Tickets for the movable feasts are selling quickly, with three of the six moveable feasts sold out already. For tickets to the Moveable Feasts visit and for more on the festival see www.

Former Tour de France rider Nathan Dahlberg has ridden bikes of all shapes and sizes all around the world,but admits he will need to do some training to get used to the new 'mountainbike' he got last week. The Nelson-based cyclist, who rode in the Tour de France in 1988 and 1989, is aiming to set a new world record by riding a bike on top of the 8051 metre Broad Peak in Pakistan, next month. It would be impossible to carry a conventional bike up that high so Nathan asked his friend and cycling enthusiast, Dean Rainbow, to build a custom-made 'mountainbike' just for the expedition. "We had to eliminate anything that could fail in the low temperatures at that altitude," Nathan says. "It's 20-below up there and things likes chains, brakes and derailleur's would freeze up solid so we went for a penny-farthing design. "I'll be carrying it on the back of my pack and then riding it once we reach the top, so it also had to be light and easy to carry. The handlebars come out and I'll can take one of the pedals off so that it sits flat against the pack."

Nathan Dahlberg with the specially-designed bike he plans to ride at the 8051m summit of Broad Peak in the Himalayas, next month. Photo: Simon Bloomberg. Dean, who has built a number of bikes, says the four kilogram mountainbike "isn't built for speed or comfort" with just a thin foam seat and small wheels. Nathan jokes that he could take off and hit some seriously high speeds riding down the 35 degree slopes on Broad Peak without brakes. He says he plans to take the bike for a test run, carrying it up Mt Arthur and then riding

it on the tops before he flies to Pakistan on July 9. "I'll be riding it in the snow and ice wearing climbing boots and crampons, so I'll need some practise. The hardest part could be finding a flat piece of ground on the mountain." Broad Peak is the 12th highest mountain in the world and if successful, he will break the present record of biking on the 7564m Muztaga Ata in China.

Janice was the winner of the Richmond Mall competition for a family weekend for four to Hanmer. There were 600 entries in total but it was Janice’s decision to shop Belinda DeClercq with Richmond Mall winners Janice and Bruce in Wild South that earned Reynolds.

Nelson Young Professionals, Tuesday, June 9: Nelson Young Professionals have had an “absolutely fantastic response” after their article in Nelson Weekly on finding new committee members. Current committee member Wes Malcolm says the phones and emails were going hot and, in total, Nelson Young Professionals have gained a further 10 members; four or five of those looking set to join the committee. Nomin-eat, Tuesday, June 9: The group behind Nomin-eat says their cause has received a great response from the public since its article in Nelson Weekly. The Swedish Bakery in Nelson has come on board, supplying bread to go alongside the meals they cook, and there have been a number of donations of money. Joni Nacagilevu, one of the 20 people involved in making the meals, says they have also had around 80 new people join them on Facebook; meaning a growing awareness for what they do and plenty of nominations. Joni says Nomin-eat are thinking about increasing the number of meals they cook from 50 to 100.

Then last Monday, Ange got a phone call from the national headquarters of the Mad Butcher saying she was the national winner of the $10,000, a day that also happened to be her birthday. “That’s why I thought it was a prank. I thought someone was playing a joke on my birthday.” Ange says she isn’t sure what she’s going to do with the money yet. The options include a holiday, shopping spree or “doing the sensible thing” and putting it on her mortgage. Dan says he was stoked to see to go to a local. “And it’s great that a regular customer got it as well. Awesome.”

Ange Cousins thought it was a wind up, she just wasn’t sure who would play that kind of prank on her birthday. “I didn’t believe the guy on the phone when he said I won $10,000. It wasn’t until I had another call from Dan [Perrin, owner of Mad Butcher Stoke] that I realised it was for real.” Ange was one of two Mad Butcher shoppers in New Zealand to win a $10,000 cash prize, simply by shopping at the store earlier this month. She says she remembers filling out the entry form but thought it was for some free meat, so didn’t think too much about it.

Modellers Pond: I have been a user of the modellers pond for over twenty years sailing my models of Nelson immigrant ships I have made. It is a fantastic pond to use and the cub scouts used to use it for their annual raft races back in the 1980’ -90s. I am sure in the future there will be some other hobby or craze, like the resurgence of scooters, that will be only too keen to use it one day. Peta Raggett. Rocks Rd footpath: It seems to me that if no trucks were allowed on Rocks Rd there would be no crumbling footpaths, and probably no disintegrating cliffs either. What a huge saving in time and money that would be! Those heavy trucks must be responsible for shaking the road which was never intended to support such behemoths when it was originally built on reclaimed land. Alison Kelso. Lighthouse weather vane: Wow, awesome to see our lighthouse being so well looked after! Monique (via Tree stumps at beach removed: They were cool. Kay Hart. What a shame to see this 'artwork' go.

School of Music to fund raise $1.4M for upgrades Kate Russell The Nelson School of Music restoration and rebuild is gaining momentum, with a public fundraising campaign set to launch this week. The heritage building has been closed for over a year because of earthquake risk. The School of Music Trust is now in the process of fundraising to strengthen, refurbish and reopen the auditorium and build a new multi-use facility, complete with rehearsal and teaching rooms. The Rainey House site in Collingwood St is also set for a major revamp. With the plans drawn up, major funders in place, the community is now being asked to help reach a fundraising target of $1.4m out of the total project cost of $6.4m. Fundraising committee chair Colleen Marshall said she is confident there would be plenty of support for the project, given the School of Music’s role at the heart of Nelson’s musical life, and its national reputation. “We have already had some

There is so much goodwill out there.” The committee will also apply for grants, and a wide variety of fundraising events and activities are also in the pipeline, including a gala featuring some well-known New Zealand performers. Colleen Marshall calls the rebuild “well overdue”, and is thrilled that Nelson will boast a state-of-the-art music and performance venue that is vibrant and will cater to the city’s young people. “It’s essential” says Colleen.

Established 1929


“Nelson can only be proud of what we are going to achieve here.” The fundraising campaign officially launches at a function in the City Council Civic Chamber on Wednesday, June 24. Construction work is expected to start before the end of year and the buildings will reopen in late 2016. A brochure, with details of the project and other ways to donate, will be available from the Nelson School of Music website from Wednesday, or picked up from Fifeshire House.

Nayland puts on a show

Nayland College will come alive with music, film, drama and dance this week with nightly variety shows as part of their Performing Arts Festival.

Arts Coordinator Rose Shepard says the students have been working hard on the performances

"A lot of them have not done a public performance before, it’ll be great for them. Not only are they performing in front of reasonably-sized audiences, but they are also getting assessed." She says the event is also a good way for ex-Nayland students to come along and check out what’s going on.

Beer label art competition goes nationwide A nationwide art competition is underway to find a new label for one of the Sprig and Fern's most popular brews, with $1000 prize money up for grabs. The award-winning Nelson brewery is teaming up with Art Expo Nelson for the competition, which is now into its second year. Artists are being asked to submit one artwork, with four finalists chosen. These will then be displayed in all nine Sprig and Fern taverns across Nelson and Wellington for five weeks, in which time the public can vote for their favourite design. The winning artwork will then take pride of place on the Sprig and Fern's Pilsner, which head brewer Tracy Banner says is their bestselling beer rigger and sold in supermarkets and liquor stores throughout New Zealand. “We want it to get as much nationwide exposure as possible” she says. “We really want to take it to the public.” Nic Foster, project manager of Art Expo Nelson, says he is expecting many more than the 80 entries they received last year. “It's a great opportunity for any artist to have their works in the public eye” he says. Judging the entries will be Nic, Tracy and Andy Clover from Seven Design Secrets. “We're also looking for another person to become involved as a judge,” says Nic. The winning entry will be announced at Art Expo Nelson's Opening Night on 24 October, and the four finalists artworks will be on display, and for sale, at Art Expo Nelson during the three day event. Artist applications close on Friday 31 July.

Work to fix Cable Bay road wins supreme award Donaldson Civil won the Hirepool Supreme Award at the Civil Contractors New Zealand Nelson Marlborough Branch awards, held in Nelson on Friday, for completing a challenging $3.1million repair of the flood-damaged Cable Bay Rd. The Stoke-based company took out the top award after earlier winning the Hynds Award for projects valued over $1.5million. It received the awards for completing the contact to remediate Cable Bay Rd, after it was extensively damaged by slips in the December 2011 flood, ahead of time and under budget. “It was a good project for us,” Donaldson Contracting’s co-owner Gary Donaldson says. “But it was also really challenging because we had to work in a very confined area on multiple worksites that were all different. “All the sites were on the down slopes from the road and some of the slips were too steep to walk on before construction. But we were lucky we had a very good crew on the job and good subcontractors it was a 20-month contract but we finished it in 14 months and under budget.” Co-owner Ken Nell says they purchased a 13 tonne excavator with a special drilling accessory for the contract, because the 29 work sites along the narrow, winding road were too confined for their 20 tonne excavator and a conventional drilling rig.everything They constructed This bike has satnav &walls, heated upgraded six 22 from retaining seats & grips to culverts, 438 holes up to stereo, drilled electronically

J C Contracting, Webster Drilling, Land Dimension and Kidson Construction were the main sub-contractors. The project was completed in February this year. Independent Kerb and Concrete won the Edridge Crushing and Screening Small Business Award for the Natureland site works and Fulton Hogan won the Crowe Horwath projects valued under $200,000 award for the State Highway 65 Shenandoah Rock Buttress contract. Downer NZ won two awards, the Cable Price projects valued between $200,000$750,000 for the Moncrieff Ave slip remediation and the Land Dimensions Ltd projects valued between $750,000-$1.5million Award for the Waimea Road Renewal.

The Farmlands team are always ready to offer advice on their quality products. They are, from left, Bryan, Patrick, Alice, Brady, Charlie, Rob, Evan, Sue, Adam, John, Dave and, in front, Neville and Ben. Farmlands has been through a few changes in its time, including the move into its current premises on Main Rd Hope and, of course, its brand change from CRT; but one thing has, and always will remain the same, and that’s the staff ’s commitment to quality products and reliable advice. While the co-operative itself has been active in Richmond for many years, the building that accommodates staff and products is celebrating its fifth anniversary. When it was first introduced to the public at a grand opening party in 2010, both the Farmlands team and customers were delighted with its drive-through area and efficient flow, through sliding doors into the expansive store. Overall it provided Farmlands customers with an enhanced shopping experience and is certainly one of the reasons for Farmlands’ success. Resene High Five

While Farmlands is a farmer-owned co-operative, their services and products are for everyone, and that’s something the staff want everyone to know. It’s not all farm supplies either; Farmlands stock a huge range of products that cater to many areas, from clothing and apparel, to irrigation, household supplies, footwear, hand tools, safety equipment, animal health, horse care and stock feed for just about every animal on two or four legs. Although Farmlands is based in Richmond, Nelson customers are still on their list of priorities and there are a couple of important reasons why shopping with the co-operative is worth it. Farmlands offers customers a different type of retail experience because the team in the store are all experts within their specific category. “If somebody wants to come in and talk dog food, they

talk to Brady and he’ll break it down, right down to the animal science behind it. We’re not just box movers; we have to know what we’re talking about. If people want advice, that’s what we’re here for, that’s why we hire the caliber of people that you’ll find at Farmlands,” says manager Bryan Thomas. Farmlands Richmond wants to make sure that people get the best value for money and, by making sure their staff have a full product knowledge, customers can walk away knowing they have spent their money wisely. What many customers aren’t aware of is the variety of stock that Farmlands hold and anything they don’t have in-store can be sourced, whether externally or from Farmlands’ network of 82 stores nationwide. It doesn’t matter if it’s stock food or clothing, Farmlands make sure they stock reliable brands and, in doing so, they can confidently stand by what they sell; they even wear it themselves because of its quality and durability, although it has to be hardwearing in order to stand up to the less than delicate life of many of their farming customers. One of the best features of Farmlands is its covered Feed Barn. All stock feed is laid out in the covered drive-through so customers can park next to the product they are after, find what

Skate half-pipe proposed for Victory Square kate russell A half-pipe skateboard ramp is being planned for Victory Square to create a meeting point for local youths. An information day was held at Victory Square on Sunday to allow locals to have their say on the proposal, which attracted a large number of keen youths and adults. Keep Victory Safe co-ordinator Marcia Higgs says that there has always been a demand for a skate facility at the park. “People have wanted it in the area for ten years” she says. “Not only would it create a place for youths to meet, but it would draw in the wider community and attract skaters from all over Nelson, which would be a real positive for Victory retailers.” The exact location of the halfpipe is yet to be decided, but it is likely to be about 6 metres long and 1 metre high and will cost no more than $10,000 to build. Marcia says that they will apply for funding and also fundraise within the community. “There’s

victory’s Darcy stokes and kereama allen at the information day for the proposed victory square half-pipe, on sunday afternoon. Photo: Kate Russell. quite a lot of work to do to bring it to fruition” she says. “It will have to go out for public consultation and we’ll create a good case to take to council.” The development will have to be non-disruptive to Saturday sports and other events in the park, but Marcia is confident that it can be built to fit in with the other uses of the park. “A half-pipe of this size is very doable and affordable for Victory

and we could see some really positive results from it.” Some of the youths who attended the information day are planning a Facebook page to promote the half-pipe to the community, and an online survey will be created to get public feedback before any other steps are taken towards submitting the plan to Council. Survey forms are also available at the Victory Community Centre.

Volunteers in our community conduct a range or roles including environmental work, offering support to refugees, support at food banks, supporting the elderly, helping out at sport clubs and at events. There is also a demand for volunteers within the administration sector, including information technology and finance, and also at governance level as a committee or board member. People volunteer their time to organizations for a range of reasons; it could be a personal interest in the area, a desire to meet people or to help people, or to gain work experience. “It’s an opportunity for you to discover what you are passionate about. You can volunteer in any area that interests you, and you will begin to find out about what makes you happy: talking with people, young or old; IT work; or working with animals,” says Katy.

Flying hot air balloons can be a risky business, as students from Garin College found out during the school's Mahi Toi festival. Te Wairoa o nga Mahi Toi means the "spirit of creation in the arts", and last Thursday and Friday students at Garin attended a range of artistic workshops and activities as part of the festival. One of the most popular activities was Sky's the Limit, which involved making paper hot air balloons, but as 91 students found out it wasn't all plain sailing. Two of the paper balloons caught fire on the launching pad and another made an unplanned landing high up in a tree on the edge of Avery Field. But, according to teacher Tony Etchells, those miniHindenburg disasters are just part of paper hot air ballooning. "I found the plan for the balloons on the internet and we had a trial run with my two young boys at home. It went perfectly so we are trying it here, but things do go wrong. "If if it's too windy we lose some of them and there's always a chance of a fire. One of the balloons we lost last year landed two kilometres away and someone phoned the school and said they had found it." Garin's arts coordinator Lindsey Furlong-Taylor says students participated in flax weaving, claymation and cup cake decorating activities, as well as range of arts including singing, drama and creative writing. Students also created a stunning ensemble of clothing out of recyclable material for the RAW

(Recyclable Art that is Wearable) competition. There were 40 entries in the RAW competition, with students Ellie Springer and Jake Wilkie saying they designed their entry to highlight the issue of domestic violence in society. Elle says they decided on that theme after seeing an advertisement that showed one in three people suffer from domestic violence abuse. "We thought this was really shocking and we wanted to raise some awareness about that, so we created this garment that resembles some of this," Ellie says. "It's made from chipped cracked plates and broken curtains to symbolise the broken families and physical and mental damage domestic violence causes." Lindsey says the standard of work created by the students during this year's Mahi Toi "has gone to a new level." It started with "an amazing performance" in Thursday's opening ceremony and continued right through to Friday afternoon's RAW competition. "Our arts captains Jess Brooks, Nick Erasmuson and Elizabeth Mitchell, are very good this year and they have had a big input into the festival. The creativity of these students is incredible - they never cease to amaze me." People will have a chance to see the best of last week's performances and creations when Garin holds its Mahi Toi concerts at the Hope Community Church on July 1 and 2, starting at 7pm. Tickets for the concert cost $5 for adults and $3 for school-aged children and can be purchased at the Garin College office.

They came dressed as old men, super heroes and one even dressed his bike as a camel, but organisers say this year’s Six Hour Mid-Winter Breakout event was one of the best ever. Around 350 riders in 120 teams took turns cycling a loop of the Rabbit Island mountain bike circuit in the event, which was in its tenth year. Organiser Wayne Pool says it was the first time it had been back at Rabbit Island for several years after spending the past five at Kaiteriteri, but he says it worked a treat. “I’ve had absolutely superb feedback from the riders, probably the best feedback of any event, so I’m really happy.” Wayne says, for many of the riders it was their first ever mountainbike event

Nelson under 15 netballers impress at tournament

Carol Cook

Netball Reporter

Nelson Netball U15 coach Sarah Rankin was all smiles with the performances of her team at the Top of the South Tournament, held in Blenheim on Sunday. With a very limited preparation, (only two trainings together), the two wins and one loss (by a solitary goal) was an impressive day’s play. Nelson’s first opposition was Buller, who raced ahead to a seven goal lead at half-time as Nelson took time to settle. Sarah rang the changes and combinations began to gel, and Nelson made up ground to five in arrears at three-quarter time. Two turnovers were all that were required to get back into the game and the teams went head-to-head in the final minutes with Buller coming out on top 28–27. Lydia Swaney was the standout shooter while Olivia Avery was strong through the mid court and put in some beautiful feeds to her shooters. Maddi Springer impressed in the defensive circle and she gained numerous tips and intercepts at goal defence. Nelson totally dominated Motueka in all facets of play with a 55–5 scoreline. All players acquitted themselves well. While still respecting their opposition, Nelson were able to take the opportunity of taking some risks in their play. Goal shoot Lauren Chaney was fed superbly to find her fa-

Nelson's goal defence Jaime Archer intercepts a pass intended for a Marlborough player, at the Top of the South Tournament in Blenheim over the weekend. voured shooting position near the post to convert near 90 per cent. Leea Conning had a strong game at wing defence - she was “niggly”, quick to the low ball, and picked up an amazing amount of ball around the circle edge. Leea was effective in transition and was a competent ball carrier. Centre Jess Kelly directed play well, was really fast on the drive, however she displayed patience and control on the feed. Both Jess and Jessica Williams were effective in looking long to their shooters. Marlborough were an unknown quality, however Nelson’s combinations had began to gel nicely and their confidence was high after such an emphatic win over Motueka. Shooters Lydia and Bailee Tava displayed a great understanding of one another’s play and, against much taller opposition, did a sterling job. They rotated the circle well, while Bailee drove along the base line to receive the long ball from Jess. Wing attack Aimee Lewis had

a particularly strong performance against Marlborough as she worked hard to get to circle edge for the optimum feed. Jaimie Archer came in for praise from her coach as she put in a solid performance at centre in the first game before forming an impressive circle defence with Maddi. Playing front and back, the pair were a formidable unit. Jaime was a threat as she hunted the top of the circle and had a continued presence right to the transverse line. Overall, coach Rankin was “really, really pleased” with her charges – they bonded so well and worked hard to develop the combinations. The team’s next outing is in Nelson on 26 July for the first round of the inaugural Netball Mainland U15 Championship when they will meet Marlborough, Mid Canterbury and Christchurch 4. The second round will be in Christchurch, with the finals in Selwyn.

NelsoN College Nelson College’s 1st XV have had a solid start to the 2015 season. In the Crusaders schools competition, the UC Championship, they have a six win and three loss record and are looking for a few results to go their way in the second half of the competition so they can climb the table. The team have put some goals in place and, of course, one is to perform well in the Quadrangular Tournament. They are well aware of the historical significance of the tournament and also the huge hurdle of overcoming perennial champions Wellington College, whom they lost narrowly 5-0 to last year in atrocious and cold conditions.

Pre-relationship/post-relationship counselling


• Are you considering committing to a relationship? • Do you know if you are truly compatible? How? • Do you appreciate the emotional/financial costs of getting it wrong? • Pre-relationship counselling is popular overseas because it works! • I can help you make better decisions, and relationship agreements. Separated or divorced? Still struggling? Feeling bitter? Can’t let go? Lonely? Fearful of the future? Parenting arrangements not working? Contemplating re-parenting? I can help you move on. Family Court funded counselling has gone! 5 (weekly) sessions cost the equivalent of a year’s gym membership. Set this against protracted legal costs!
