Free WiFi costs $1.20 each time Andrew Board

Nelson’s free Wi-Fi service has been a hit with tourists, but the service is costing ratepayers more than a $1 every time it’s used. Figures released from Nelson City Council show that 26,595 users had logged onto the free internet service since it was launched on November 1 last year, with that projected to reach around 35,000 users before its first anniversary. But with an annual budget of $44,000, it means the cost of each connection to ratepayers will be around $1.20. Free WiFi in the CBD was the idea of city promotions group Uniquely Nelson but was taken over by the council before it was launched. The service is now being reviewed by the council and the findings will be put to the governance committee on October 1. “Part of the review will exam-

ine the level of service being paid for – we started with a high level of support as the system was new and it was expected that there would be teething problems. So there may be scope for further savings once the review is completed,” says a council spokesperson. Governance committee chair Ian Barker says he couldn’t comment on the costs as he hasn’t seen the results of the review. “But I’m happy to review it and ensure we’re getting the best deal for ratepayers,” he says. Uniquely Nelson manager Cathy Madigan says it is still early days for the service but it is having a positive impact. “It’s still fledging, but we’re happy with it. Locals are using it to search for local information, but tourists are using it for Facebook and stuff like that.” She says as soon as people log into the free WiFi it takes them

Lioness jam-makers get to work Jessie Johnston

Things were getting heated in the kitchen last Saturday as the Lioness Club of Nelson made their annual gifts of home-made jam. The activity was part of the group’s service to the community and saw 200 jars of jam cooked, bottled

and labelled, ready to go out with the Meals on Wheels dinners over the next month or so. Every home in the Nelson area who receives Meals on Wheels will also get a jar of jam, made possible with the help of Nelson Intermediate who regularly give the Lioness group use of their

technology kitchen. The Lioness Club of Nelson projects group was also busy last Saturday. Set up in the other half of the kitchen, they were churning out cheese rolls which will be sold to raise money for Big Brothers, Big Sisters.

Fire Service says a lack of working smoke alarms is concerning

Andrew Board The Fire Service says Nelsonians are flirting with disaster by not having working smoke alarms installed in their homes. Over the past month the Nelson Fire Service has attended four fires where the owners of the home haven’t had a smoke alarm. Station officer Craig Davies says it was fortunate they started during the day, so the occupants could see the smoke and get out.

“Potential for disaster is huge, in recent times people have been lucky. Chances are the luck will run out.” He says the fires they attended included homes with elderly and young children. “We really want to make sure people are up to speed on smoke alarms. We need people to sort it out and get them installed, or make sure the batteries still work.” Craig says that people need to have a smoke alarm in every

bedroom of the house as well as hallways and living rooms, and they they need to be on the ceiling, not the wall. In one recent incident, the fire service was

called to a sleepout in Tahunanui. The teenager who lived in the room had seen the smoke coming from a metre board in the room. If that happened during the night, Craig says they would never have noticed. “Your nose turns off when you’re asleep and that smoke was very toxic, so the occupant would have just died in their sleep. If you’re lucky enough to be awake, you’ll get away with it, but if you’re asleep, you won’t be so lucky.”

Jacob Chandler

A protest in opposition to the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement attracted hundreds of people to Nelson’s CBD on Saturday morning and caused traffic problems as members of the march poured out onto the intersection on Hardy and Rutherford Sts. The protest started at 1903 Square with speeches, before travelling down Hardy St and through the Nelson Market. Protesters then blocked off the Rutherford/Hardy St intersection for around 15 minutes with police trying to hold back the crowd, keeping at least one lane open for a short time near the Nelson Cadet Unit base. Sergeant David Lauer says, while police were made aware of the protest and had spoken to the organiser that morning confirming numbers, he was not impressed with the decision to block traffic at the busy intersection. “It was a disappointing part of the protest,” he says. “We were assured marshals would keep protesters off the roads and we will be following up on this.” Event organiser Graeme O’Brian says some members of the group just started standing

Gladstone Rd traffic now on camera: The wait will soon be over for frustrated drivers who have been seeing red at the lights on Gladstone Rd, with a new camera system being installed to help improve traffic flows. The phasing of lights at three intersections on Gladstone Rd, which are owned by the New Zealand Transport Agency and cost $4.3 million, have been an issue for drivers since they were installed in 2009. But the good news is that NZTA has installed cameras at the lights to relay information to its Traffic Operations Centre in Wellington so that traffic flow can be improved by remote control.

A Nelson mum won the Community Spirit award at the regional Pride of New Zealand awards in Christchurch last week. Rebekah Malthus founded Project Butterfly as a support network for parents who had lost children. The project has created the butterfly path in Fairfield Park and also runs workshops to help families. She was one of six category winners at the South Island regional awards, which aim to celebrate deserving heroes throughout the country. Now, Rebekah will head to Auckland for the national awards next month. There she will take on other Community Spirit winners from the three North Island regions. Rebekah says she was shocked to win. “There were some amazing people there and I’ve been looking at the people

who won in the North Island and they’re all doing amazing things, so to even be nominated is huge.” Another Project Butterfly member, Aine Burn, was nominated in the Fundraiser of the Year category. Rebekah says she wishes more could have been nominated. “It’s not about me, it’s just that my name goes on everything, but I wish we could get some of the others that have helped recognised as well. Sometimes I feel that I get all the accolades but I would have never been able to achieve it without all the other people that helped.” The national award winners will be selected from the regional award winners by a panel of judges. Voting for the People’s Choice Award opened yesterday, with the winner to receive $10,000 from TSB Bank to go towards their chosen cause. To vote visit

Free fruit trees for kindergartens A local gardener is on a mission to keep Nelson kids healthy, and is donating his time and resources to plant fruit trees in all 19 kindergartens throughout the region. Graham Smith from Garden Property Services Ltd has teamed up with Waimea Nurseries and Green Waste To Zero, and will be planting every kindergarten from Nelson to Golden Bay with four fruit trees - a plum tree, an apple tree, a feijoa tree, and a mandarin tree. With two young children of his own, Graham says he has “seen firsthand” the sugar-filled lunch boxes kids are bringing to kindergarten. “I felt the need to do something about it,” he says. “Our mission is to try and shape the health and well-being of current and future generations of children by providing better access to fresh fruits and vegetables.” Graham approached Trish Casey, CEO of the Nelson Tasman Kindergarten Association, with his idea, and before long it was “all go,” with the planting kicking off last Tuesday at Victory Square

Kindergarten. Children are a big part of the planting process and are encouraged to help dig the holes, plant the trees, shovel in the compost, and stamp down the earth. “We hope to educate them in the process from the start, and when they are established they will have the freedom of choice to pick fresh fruit,” says Graham. “Fruit can be quite expensive at times, so this should also give the kindergartens an opportunity to provide fresh fruit to kids throughout the year. With proper pruning and training you can get bumper crops from dwarf trees.” Trish Casey says the trees will be a great opportunity to teach children about growing food in our own backyards and making use of the produce. “We are very appreciative of these two companies for their contribution to our kindergartens,” she says.

Tanks, trucks and veterans help commemorate VJ Day Jessie Johnston

A month later Allan was required to take four Japanese pilots, who had been ordered down from their base at Raboul, and hand them over to the Australians. At the age of 23 on VJ Day, Allan says he had found it hard to believe

Nelson commemorated the 70th anniversary of VJ Day at Rutherford Park on Saturday. Along with members of the public were some veterans from the second world war, each with their own memories of the event. Allan Carson was in the Air Force with number 19 fighter squadron, as an intelligence officer, when the war ended. His job was to brief the pilots before their missions and take their reports upon return. They were in New Britain on VJ Day and, after hearing rumours for weeks, were finally informed of Japan’s unconditional surrender.

they were at peace and had mixed feelings over the two bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Murray Rowe joined the Navy in 1940 for 12 years, serving in the Mediterranean and the Pacific.

After the surrender, his squadron stayed and toured Japan for four months but, before going home, they were taken into Nagasaki. With radiation still active, it was something he is still suffering from today.

Kate Russell Nelson brides are being called upon to dust off their wedding gowns for this year’s ‘bride of the year’ competition, which is being run as part of the Nelson Wedding Show this October. To be eligible to enter, brides must have gotten married between 30 April 2014 and 30 April 2015, and of course, still need to be married. Show organiser Casey Stevenson says that although it is normally the groom who enters the bride, they also get plenty of entries from bridesmaids and

mothers-of-the-bride. “Whoever enters the bride needs to send in a photo of the bride and groom, and a blurb about them and why they should be selected,” she says. The entries will be narrowed down to a top five, who will get their hair and make-up professionally done on the day of the show. The overall winner will win a mystery weekend escape, and there will also be a people’s choice award, as voted on show day, which will be a pearl necklace and earrings from Glen James Jewellers. Judging the brides this year will

be Glen Tomlinson from Glen James Jewellers, Sarah Board from Nelson Weekly and Tonia Brydon from Tonic Hair Culture and Beauty, who is also in charge of hair and make-up on the day. Brides will also have the opportunity to ‘trash’ their wedding gown at the show. “It’s just a bit of fun on the day,” says Casey. Entries can be sent to info@ and close mid-September. The Nelson wedding show is being held on Sunday October 4 at Saxton Stadium. Entry is $10 per person (kids under 16 free).


The Pride of New Zealand Awards celebrate unsung community heroes. From your nominations earlier in the year, 24 national finalists have been chosen across six award categories. Now it’s time for you to vote for who you think is the most deserving of the TSB Bank People’s Choice Award. The winner will receive $10,000 from TSB Bank toward their chosen cause. Voting closes Sunday, September 13.

Interdominion Team Sailing Championships in Canberra in September. The luxury boat tour will be held this Saturday August 22, with a back-up of Sunday 23 in case of bad weather. Organiser Toni Chittenden says the trail should have wide appeal. “The men would love to see the engine rooms, the sailors the equipment, and for those like me, the opportunity to see the interior decorating and fit-outs.” For tickets please contact Toni or tickets are also available from Burnsco Marine and Nelson College for Girls Reception, $25 per person.

Council confirm funding for WW1 soldier statue

A statue of a soldier is soon to take pride of place in Marsden Valley Cemetery, as a nod to those who served in World War 1. Nelson City Council’s community services committee confirmed at their meeting on Thursday that they will grant $20,000 to the Returned Services Association towards the statue, which will go behind the flagpole at the RSA section of the cemetery. The statue is planned to be unveiled on Anzac Day 2016, which also marks the RSA’s 100th anniversary. RSA spokesperson Mason Robinson, who is the driving force behind the project, says that the council’s contribution is “great news,” but another $30,000 - $40,000 is still required for the project to go ahead. He says they will be applying for funds from Veterans Affairs and community trusts to make up the additional costs. “The council have given us the base which we have to now leverage, and we’re very confident we’ll achieve the additional funding,” says Mason. Councillor Pete Rainey says that it’s important that the council “steps up” and plays a role in supporting the project. “I know it has been discussed for some time to do the statue and it’s good we can get behind it and help to commemorate the memory of WW1,” he says. Mason says the idea for the statue came to him about three years ago, as he thought the RSA section of the cemetery needed a landmark. “It will just give the area a bit more presence, and acknowledge the fallen soldiers,” he says. The statue will be of a WW1 soldier who will be respectfully bowing his head for his comrades, and stand at around seven foot tall. Donations and bequests for the statue are gratefully being accepted. Anyone who would like to make a donation can do so by contacting RSA President Barry Pont on (03) 548 6815.

Absolute rubbish that we have useless cell coverage in this day and age, we live in Stoke and have NIL coverage, before that we lived in the Brook - NIL coverage there, seem a little short-sighted for Nelson yet again. It would be great to have coverage in case of emergencies when one doesn't have a landline. Hope you get some answers, Nick, don't count on it though. Rebecca Thomson. It's not the NCC or ratepayers job to improve cellphone coverage. It is the role of providers such as Vodafone or Spark. The funding will cover some of the costs, but I totally object to my ratepayers money then being spent on improving cellphone coverage. That's a provider cost! Jo Bishop. I think this is the first time ever that I agree with Nick Smith. Ana Fierek.

on ignoring all the citizens of Aotearoa New Zealand who do not condone secrecy in sovereignty matters relating to trade. It was a great march and hopefully we at least encouraged more people to find out about the dangers of the TPPA. The police were very good at looking out for us - we appreciated that, and after all it was only for a short time. Nick Kiddey. I spoke to two officers after being told to turn around at the end of Trafalgar St, and, was more or less told to piss off and its not their job to close roads. What a load of tripe. The roads were not cordoned off and there were no road closure signs, I respect them for standing up for fairness but I pay to use public roads and I should have the right to pass through without being obstructed by foot traffic blocking an unclosed roadway. David Flynn.

I am disappointed with the police here. They should have liaised better, and been prepared for the strength of feeling that TPP has roused. Zela Charlton.

Fine, if you don't agree with what's happening, protest. We live in a democracy - that's your right. But "being an inconvenience to people who haven't joined in?" P*&^ off, I don't agree with homoeopathy, but do I go a local store and stop people from going into the store or stop public roads from being used. Jog on, you prats. Karl Newton.

Support network a 'lifesaver' for parents

When Andrea Lee’s son was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder, she didn’t know who to turn to. But she soon found a local support network called Parent to Parent, and has found their help invaluable ever since. Last week was Parent to Parent’s awareness week, and like Andrea, many families in Nelson have found great support and friendship in their services. The nationwide non-for-profit organisation offers guidance and support for families who have a child with a disability or health impairment. Andrea’s 11 year old son, Andre, who attends Nelson Central School, was three

years old when he was diagnosed with fragile X syndrome, which is a genetic condition which causes learning disabilities and cognitive impairment. “I used to call him my dream baby,” says Andrea. "But then he started missing his milestones. We got referred to a paediatrician and genetic screening revealed what was happening." “I felt pretty lost and was aware I needed to find out what was available in the community. I saw an advertisement in the paper for a Parent to Parent coffee group meeting, so I went along and haven’t looked back since.” Andrea still attends the monthly coffee

group, which provides parents with friendship, support, and local on-the-ground information on their child’s condition. “It really is a different experience raising a child with special needs,” says Andrea, who also has a 13 year old daughter. “Here I found another group of parents who got what I was going through. It didn’t work with my other friends as they had no idea what I was experiencing. Meeting these families was like a lifesaver.” Andrea went on to complete some of Parent to Parent’s free courses, such as advocacy support, renew workshops and support parent training. She then became the Nelson chairperson for five years before

stepping down to be on the national board, which she has done for the past three years. Parent to Parent are not just about coffee groups either, they organise family events, a mum's pamper weekend, and speakers who come and give up-to-date information on the sector. They also offer support to siblings, who often find the process just as tough, through a programme called SibSupportNZ. “It can be so hard and overwhelming, and Parent to Parent can make the journey a bit easier. We are just a phone call away.” Anyone interested in Parent to Parent can contact Andrea on 021 044 6299, or visit

Bridget Budget answers your questions

Q: My son is in year 12 and wants

to study in Wellington in 2017. He is likely to get the full Student Allowance of $211; but it doesn’t seem like enough to live on. What other income options does my son have? A: Planning ahead for the costs of university study is a very good idea: Encourage your son to:  Write up a budget of his likely costs of living when in Wellington  Calculate the living cost shortfall (which could be around $200 per week)  Explore local options for study so he could live at home  Consider staying with family, or going flatting instead of a hall of residence  Save money he has earned from working, while he is still at school  Apply for scholarships  Consider a working gap-year so he can save for university  Work part-time while he is studying at university

I think education is a good investment if it means your son will earn more in the future. has some excellent advice and calculators for students.

‘Only strap girls in private’ says old school manual Mahana School pupils have uncovered some fascinating historic items, including a teacher’s handbook that explains the finer points of corporal punishment, as they continue their search for the three time capsules buried somewhere in the school grounds. The school has been searching for the time capsules so that they can display their contents at the school’s centenary celebrations to be held from September 11 to 13. Although their search has so

far been unsuccessful, principal Justin Neal says the attic of the school’s oldest classroom, built in 1920, is proving to be a goldmine. One of the more interesting finds has been a booklet titled ‘ByLaws of Education in the District of Nelson 1932.’ Justin says the children have been fascinated by the section on corporal punishment which informs teachers, in great detail, when and how to administer the strap. “It says the teacher has to be fair

about using the strap because if it is used too much it indicates their discipline is too weak. It also says that senior girls can only be strapped in private and not in front of the rest of the class - it’s been very educational for the kids to learn about this.” Justin says they have also found an old valve radio, ink-wells that students used to dip their pens

into for writing, old certificates, two shields and lots of photos. Justin says the radio was “so old the kids didn’t even know what it was,” although he joked that “if you showed them a cassette player they wouldn’t know what that was, either”. The shields were for the Boys’ 220 Yards and Girls’ Skipping and dated back to 1917, two years after the school started. In the meantime, Justin says they will intensify their search for the time capsules.

“The kids are desperate to find them. From what I can gather there are three of them - one was buried in the 1960s and another at the 75th anniversary in 1975, and a third at some uncertain time under the old cobb hut that used to be here. “We will keep making inquiries in the community to try and find out if anyone knows where they were buried. There are still two or three families here that had grandparents at the school, so they might know something.”

Nelson rider wins winter cycling series

Ann Rigg takes a corner in the final round of the Ray White Winter Cycling series around the Hope Circuit on Saturday. Photo: Simon Bloomberg.

It wasn't quite a case of slow and steady wins the race, but Nelson rider Chris Heywood showed that consistency and enthusiasm count when he won the Ray White Winter Road Cycling series A grade title on Saturday. Chris wasn't the fastest rider in the 11-race series that concluded with a race around the Hope circuit on Saturday - that honour went to former Olympic road cyclist Robin Reid who won five of the sixes races he contested. Although Chris only had one win in the series, he took the A grade title with 93 points, 25 more than Robin, after racing consistently in the nine rounds he started. Chris Sharland was third on 61 points, finishing just ahead of Saturday's winner Hayden Squance on 59. B grade went down to the wire with Henry Kersten winning three races to finish on 106 points and edge out Brent Sturm on 92. Owen Hoggard won C grade ahead of Mark Goodall while Peter Harris won D grade. The women's competition was won by promising Nayland College student Emma Bateup, who is still in her first season of racing. Emma recorded 70 points racing in C grade to head off Jessica Hughes on 70 points and Suzie Wood on 60, with Georgia Cowman fourth and veteran Ann Rigg fifth on 49. The series was a family affair for many riders with race sponsor Brent Sturm competing against his son Jacob in B grade while his wife Tracey and daughter Sarah contested D grade. Christine van Hoppe and her husband Karl, daughter Karen, son-in-law Dean and granddaughter Shaane also raced in the series, which attracted 125 riders.

The annual tournament was held in Nelson on Thursday and Friday, with basketball, netball, rippa rugby, table tennis, hockey and volleyball at Saxton Field, rugby at Greenmeadows and Broadgreen Intermediate and soccer at Neale Park. Broadgreen won the girls basketball, A and C netball, mixed rippa rugby and rugby, while Nelson Prep won the boys' volleyball. "It's one of the biggest intermediate tournaments in the country," one of the organisers, Broadgreen's Paul Johnstone, says. "It's always held in Nelson and the three intermediate schools

That means it's far more social and the kids can interact and go and support their friends in the other teams"

Paul says the tournament ran smoothly and they were lucky to finish all the sports just before the weather deteriorated on Friday afternoon. For video on this story, visit

The Orphans: In the 19th century being an orphan did not necessarily mean you had no parents. In 1872 the Roman Catholic Sisters of the Mission established an orphanage at Manuka St. Twelve

years later they had 79 girls and 99 boys. Legal reasons for the designation of orphans included being destitute, vagrant, uncontrollable, living in a disreputable place or guilty of punishable offences.

Vuillermin was a revelation at wing defence when she was introduced at half time. She pressured every pass and was rewarded with five clean intercepts. Saphire Collins was diversity personified, as she wore three different bibs and gained numerous deflections. With a convincing 44-19 victory, Nelson are now sitting at the top of the grade with 20 points, Nayland and Waimea are tied on 18. What did impress me was young umpire Katelyn Gardiner, who finished playing for Nayland 9A only to pick up her whistle to umpire her peers. Katelyn did an excellent job.


26) and was the master of the double play in the circle for the closer shot. Not only did Chloe run the show in the shooting circle, she donned the GD bib for the final quarter and impressed with her defensive skills. While Waimea’s Rebekah Irvine had the inevitable task of marking Chloe, she could be well-pleased with efforts. Nelson continued to build their tally while restricting Waimea to single figures in each of the four quarters. Nelson’s goal shoot Josie Ripley had a tidy game when she converted 18 from 21, however better angles would see more ball delivered to her by her feeders. Sarah



Competition is tight in the Collegiate 1 grade of Nelson Netball as, after four rounds, four teams – Nelson College for Girls 9A, Nayland 9A, Waimea 9A and Waimea 10C - were unbeaten and tied on 16 points. The teams met at Saxton Courts on Saturday and while Nayland and Waimea 9A fought tooth and nail they could not be separated at the final whistle, when the score was 27 all. It was a very different story game in the second game between Nelson 9A and Waimea 10C. Five unanswered goals by Nelson midway through the first quarter put the writing on the wall that they would be difficult to contain, and they went into the first break with a 9–4 advantage. Waimea’s shooters Rose Miller and Emma Eggers were on target and had the perfect record of four from four, however they lacked opportunity as possession was often lost before the ball got to the offensive circle. Nelson’s was an all round team effort, however goal attack Chloe Webb was definitely the star performer. She was quick off the line, was the dominant shooter (converting 21 from

It is with deep sadness that I announce Jamie’s passing on Wednesday 12 August 2015 at Nelson Hospital. He was an extremely brave man who fought the battle of his life with dignity, hope, strength and trust. He fought to the very end, trying to keep his mind and body active. RIP Jamie, you deserve peace. You earned it gallantly. Thank you for all the knowledge you shared with me. You were a mountain of knowledge on nearly every subject. Jamie was cremated last Friday after being driven for his final ride in his beloved retired ambulance, past our home then onto the crematorium, with his favourite songs blasting. He is survived by his three children, Steven, Aleasha and Mikayla. A memoriam for Jamie will be held at his home at 1.00pm on Wednesday 19 August at 45 Bishopdale Rd and everyone is welcome. Go in peace my love, I will never forget you. Lianne.
