NMIT carpentry students worked with them to build the fishing platforms at the side of the ponds to enable less able children to give fishing a go. The trust also works closely with Fish & Game and the Nel- son Trout Fishing Club. The trust s supreme award prize package included a framed certificate, a trophy and $1,500 prize money. It now has the opportunity to represent the district at the 2013 TrustPower National Com- munity Awards, in Invercargill in March. The Tasman award was won by a small group of hard- working men who make up Keep Richmond Beautiful. The men have dedicated hun- dreds of hours to clean and repair tracks and bridges in Richmond following the Decem- ber 2011 rain event. Colin Andrews of Keep Rich- mond Beautiful said there were a group of eight on the com- mittee and another four or five volunteers. The group had also worked hard carrying out plantings around Richmond. Waimea College s Katie Tal- bot was named winner of the Trust Power Nelson Tasman Youth Community Award. The youth award recognises a secondary school students ser- vice to their school and the com- munity. TrustPower s Jess said Katie had organised a number of events including co-ordinating her school s $6400 fundraising effort for the 40 Hour Famine. Katie s co-ordination and costume-making for the 2012 Lip Sync Challenge and Valen- tine s Day and Easter events were a big contribution too. Out in the community Katie helps out at the creche at Hope Community Church, has volun- teered at a rest home since year 8 and she fund-raises for a num- ber of local community groups and St John. The judges were impressed with Katie s high energy approach to life, strong sense of community and sincere desire to give back, Jess said. Katie received a trophy, fra- med certificate and $500 prize money, with $250 being given to a community group or organis- ation of her choice. Youth award finalists were Zak Gibbs, Sophie Harrison, Patrick Savill, Charles Norton, Zachery Penman, and Moorea Smithline. Organisers said the Health and Well Being section was especially tough to judge, resul- ting in joint winners and five commendations. Other Tasman groups that were honoured at the awards were: Heritage and Environ- ment runner-up: NZ Deerstal- kers Association Golden Bay; Health and Well Being joint winners: Golden Bay Com- munity Health and Mens Shed Waimea; commendations: Rich- mond Fire Brigade and Rich- mond Information Centre; Arts and Culture winner: Golden Bay Community Arts Council; runner-up Motueka Events Charitable Trust.
