The wader birds fly each year non-stop from Alaska to our region to feast on the rich estuaries. Their flight south is thought to be the longest non-stop migration of any bird, and they arrive exhausted and thin. The cathedral has organised the ringing of the bells to remind the community to take a moment and reflect on the wonder of nature and the need to take care of it. Widening income gap Max Rashbrooke, editor of Inequality: A New Zealand Crisis, will be talking about widening income gaps, as part of a national tour. His talk will set out the key facts about inequality in New Zealand: how severe it is, how it has come to rise so much, and where it is heading. Max will speak at the Victory Community Centre, Nelson, on Friday, September 27 at 7.30pm. Heart disease in women Nelson women are being invited to help the Heart Foundation fight women's heart disease by attending their Go Red for Women charity breakfast next Thursday. The fundraising breakfast, which is supported by Jennian Homes, will be held at the Rutherford Hotel and will feature a line up of speakers. Former MasterChef winner Nadia Lim, the Good Food Cook and director of My Foodbag, will provide a demonstration at the breakfast. Leading cardiologist Tammy Pegg will also be giving helpful tips on how to love your heart. Tickets are $55 per person or $500 for a table and include a heart healthy breakfast. About 48 women die every week from heart disease in New Zealand making it a matter close to all our hearts, Nelson Heart Health advocate Averil West says. According to the Ministry of Health, 83 women in the Nelson and Marlborough DHB area died of heart disease in 2010. ''Too often women think of heart disease as being a man's disease but this is not the case,'' she says. For tickets visit: heartfoundation.org.nz/GoRed Make some noise The Sirens of Smash Roller Derby team are having a Cops versus Robbers themed bout to fundraise to get them to the nationals. Those attending are encouraged to dress in their favourite team's gears and make some noise. The event will be held on Saturday, September 28 at the Tahunanui Skating Rink. Doors open at 6pm and the game starts at 7pm. Tickets cost $10 or $25 for a family and are available from the Motueka Recreation Centre, Everyman Records or your local derby member. Breast cancer boot camp Registrations for this year's Boot Camp for Breast Cancer, an annual fundraiser organised by the Nelson Regional Breast Cancer Trust, have opened. The trust has already confirmed corporate sponsorship for the event to the value of $7000 and hopes to make more than that through registration and sponsorship of people taking part. The event, at the Nelson Girl's College, takes place on October 19. Register at nrbct.co.nz. Sign for peace Lush Nelson is asking locals to come in-store and make a written pledge for who or what they will make peace with this Saturday, September, 21, on International Peace Day. The pledges will be placed in the store window as part of a week-long campaign supporting the Peace One Day initiative. Storm adds edge to trips Wild, wintry weather tested the resolve of 24 Nayland College students who were adventuring in the outdoors, on the sea, and under the ground when last week's spring blast hit. The polar blast that swept up the country was ferocious, causing dam- age in Christchurch and Dunedin, but it didn't dampen the students' spirit and energy. Whenua Iti Outdoors general man- ager Mark Bruce-Miller said students enthusiastically took on activities despite the chilling storm. Although we ensure every safe- guard is in place, these conditions still represent a real test of charac- ter, of physical capability and mental tenacity,'' Mr Bruce-Miller said. I have every respect for each of the young men and women who have completed the programme.'' The student's excursion traversed Tasman's back country and sea shore, featuring caving expeditions, mountain bike rides, tramping and sea-kayaking. The multi-day multi-discipline camp is being trialled by all year 10 students at Nayland College this year, and it is hoped it will become an annual event for the school's juniors to look forward to. Initial feedback from students and staff had been excellent, Mr Bruce- Miller said. Mr Bruce-Miller said Nayland Col- lege was leading the way in opening up alternative education pathways for their students. It is fantastic to see the impact this learning has on the students -- one step towards a future embracing more practical learning environ- ments,'' he said. College deputy principal Richard Wilkins said it has been enjoyable working with Whenua Iti to develop a new type of year 10 camp. This is proving to be very well received by students and we look for- ward to continuing the relationship in future'', he said.
