Ma pango, ma whero, ka oti te mahi! With black, and with red, the work is completed! Te Ahurei Kapahaka o Horowhenua rocked the Horowhenua College hall stage as local schools celebrated Maori culture and heritage through song and dance with pride, passion and mana. Taking

part in this year’s annual kapa haka festival were Punahau Early Childhood Centre, Levin East School, Foxton Primary School, Ohau School, Shannon Primary School, Foxton Beach School, St Joseph’s, Levin North School and Nga Wai o Manawhenua made up of students from the three local colleges.

The result of hours of hard work was evident in the beautiful voices and harmonies, graceful actions, dazzling poi and fierce haka. Asked what they loved about kapa haka, the answer was “everything — singing, performing and celebrating culture”. It was also an

opportunity to remember those who had passed, including Kuia Ruthie Putaka who taught harakeke at Foxton Primary School and Foxton Beach parent and kapa haka supporter, Linda Strawbridge. Pictured above, Foxton School’s senior group. More photos page 7

ecologist, together with shared knowledge and experiences from members of the Manawatu Estuary Trust and Department of Conservation. The estuary has had Ramsar status for 11 years and plays host to birds which migrate from the Arctic, such as the godwits, as well as birds from the South Island, and is home to a number of threatened species including the native wrybill. Viewing and photographic opportunities make this an exciting opportunity for people of all ages to enjoy. There is also New Toyota Kiwi Guardian medal information and activities on-site for the kids. You might just catch a glimpse of a very special flock of birds made by Foxton Beach School too. ■ Conservation Week — waders: Saturday October 21, Manawatu Estuary, Hartley St, Foxton Beach, Foxton Beach, 11am-12pm.

Swim between the flags message as surf lifesaving season opens This weekend marks the start of Surf Lifesaving New Zealand’s official season, and the organisation says it is a timely reminder to be safe at the beach. Last summer’s drowning statistics were the worst in many years, with 19 people losing their life at New Zealand beaches between Labour Weekend and Easter, despite the poor weather keeping many people out of the water. Surf Life Saving New Zealand CEO Paul Dalton said the grim statistics showed people needed to take their own safety at beaches far more seriously. “It’s disappointing to see the increasing drowning rates but one statistic remains the same year on year — zero drownings between the flags,” he said. “The fact is, it is always the safest place to swim.” With thousands of volunteer lifeguards around the country preparing to put up the red and yellow flags, the message is for beachgoers to choose a patrolled beach and swim between the flags in an effort to break the trend.

At Labour Weekend Surf Lifesaving patrols begin in parts of the upper North Island, rolling out across the rest of the country as the weather warms up. At Waitarere and Foxton beaches patrols will start the first weekend in December and finish the second weekend of March 2018. Dalton said so often the people rescued have overestimated their ability and underestimated the risk. “Take a moment to stop and think before entering the water and if in doubt, stay out,” he says. “Lifeguards will always assess the beach conditions and put the flags in the safest place and move them about as conditions change throughout the day. Don’t be fooled by calm patches which are a sure sign of a rip being present.” Anyone who finds themselves caught in a rip should lie on their back and raise their hand to signal for help. Try to fight the urge to swim against the current — most people can float for a lot longer than they can swim. HOW TO STAY SAFE AT THE BEACH

THIS SUMMER • Choose a patrolled beach and swim between the flags. See www.findabeach.co.nz for information. • Keep children within arm’s reach at all times. Don’t overestimate your own or your child’s ability to cope in the conditions. • Never swim or surf alone. • Watch out for rips — calm, deep patches of water close to shore that can sometimes have waves breaking to the side. Rippled, discoloured or foamy water with debris can also mean there is a rip present. • Be smart around rocks: whether fishing or exploring at the beach, rocky outcrops can be very dangerous in large surf. When fishing, always wear a lifejacket. Never stand on a rock outcrop that is already wet, a sure sign waves will be washing over it, and always face the ocean. Never turn your back on the sea. • If in doubt, stay out! • If you spot someone in trouble at an unpatrolled beach, ensure your own safety and dial 111 and ask for Police.

Health care system is broken says GP By ASHLEIGH COLLIS ashleigh.collis@chronicle.co.nz In part two of a three-part series, a Horowhenua GP says there isn’t a GP shortage, but rather a health care system that refuses to admit it’s broken. Glenn Colquhoun said the system is setting up GPs to burn out and allowing atrisk mental health patients to fall through the cracks. Through his experience working at Youth One Stop Shop (YOSS), a free youth health care clinic based in Horowhenua, Colquhoun said the many acute suicidal cases he has referred to mental health services often only engage very briefly and patients end up back in the same situation. “Mental health services are broken and don’t work effectively. What’s worse is they don’t know they are broken, which is the most dangerous thing,” he said. “The services are not even scratching the surface. There is so much unhappiness, and difficulty out there.” He said patients often return from mental health services feeling like they hadn’t been heard, only passed from one doctor to another. “Those people survive for other reasons.” The dedicated GP finds it continually frustrating. While Dr Colquhoun believes GPs are not building long-term enduring

relationships, he does not blame his fellow practitioners. He holds the managers responsible and believes they should speak up to say they are swamped and overwhelmed. “The best thing they can do is speak up because then it becomes a political issue, and that is where it needs to be settled.” He even believes his own clinic is a “sinking life boat”. “With only three days in the community, one doctor and one nurse, it is now taking two to three weeks to get in to see us,” he said. Spending time getting to know his patients would be best practice, but he finds this harder and harder to achieve with a growing patient list and pressure on time and resources. He said that even if a patient tells him about self-harming, getting kicked out of school or other traumatic experiences it can be up to four weeks before he LVN16017acglenn3 can see them again. “It’s not best practice HOROWHENUA GP Glenn Colquhoun. to wait that long between PHOTO: ASHLEIGH COLLIS visits,” he said.

If a patient that was considered ‘mild’ commits suicide, Dr Colquhoun said mental health GPs are protected through “perfect, defensively written notes”. He said that last week in one day alone, there were six cases he had seen where young people were falling through the cracks. “They just exist by luck,” he said. Dr Colquhoun believes that ultimately the solution is gearing finances to demand instead of having a health care system constrained by budgets. For the changes needed, he said the public health system needs to speak up and admit the system isn’t working. He questions the need for District Health Boards. “We need to create one national health service and smash down the cost of going to the GP,” he said. He said this innovative restructure of the national health care system needs to see GPs work alongside social workers, youth workers, police, schools, mental health and the Ministry for Vulnerable Children, formally CYFS. He said finding solutions to the mental health crises is hard because medicine is built on the disease being in the person, but mental health is a disease in society. “It’s not just about having response systems that work well, because all they do is fix things once they are broken,” he said. “All public services need to be at the same table to swap notes to better understand the backgrounds of mental health patients and their at-risk families,” he said. There should be capacity so people can be seen by a GP within a week and acute patients the same day. If this isn’t affordable, there needs to be a national conversation about priorities. With national suicide statistics on the rise, Dr Colquhoun believes the solution lies in creating real and lasting connections with at-risk families, something that requires more time and resource to build a foundation of trust and relationship from which to better make decisions. “Whatever it takes to put a set of eyes on every kid born into New Zealand.”

This is Sonya’s first presentation as a Director for the Levin Little Theatre but as a well experienced actress she has a ton of “light bulb ideas” which will be incorporated into this pantomime giving it that extra special pizzazz. Last year she assisted David Latham with his production of “Aladdin”, as well as stepping in at least 3 other character roles - her versatility is obvious.

PRODUCTION DATES:

TROUBLE IN PANTOLAND With a mix of characters from just about every pantomime we have ever seen this is a theatre culinary delight, something different but at the same time with the age old story of good overcoming bad. The Wicked Wizard enters into Pantoland with designs to take over and rule but like the best laid plans of “frogs” and men things do not go according to plan. As the story unfolds there are all the elements which makes pantomime so appealing, the fun characters, colourful costumes, singing, dancing and audience participation and the local topical innuendos. It is a pantomime that cleverly incorporates threads from many stories whilst staying anchored it its own fairy tale and great entertainment for all the family.

Masons open up their organisation LVN201017twmasons

GRADUATES of the CACTUS programme from Waiopehu College were invited to the 200th meeting of the Freemasons United Horowhenua Lodge which announced it would be providing long-term support for the CACTUS programme. From left, Ella White, Sergeant Ian Pigott, William Jane-Hansen, Brian Evans (Worshipful Master United Horowhenua Lodge), Miranda Conway, Constable Andrew Collis, Graham Wrigley (Deputy Grand Master Freemasons New Zealand). By TANYA WOOD tanya.wood@chronicle.co.nz Forget the funny handshakes and conspiracy theories — the Levin Freemasons are open and welcoming. Their only fault is perhaps not blowing their own trumpet enough. “We’re out there, we’re here but not many people know about us,” said Brian Evans, Worshipful Master United Horowhenua Lodge. “Freemasonry is founded on benevolence and working with the community.” The Horowhenua Lodge was consecrated in 1908, later consolidating with the Levin Lodge in 1999 to become the United Horowhenua Lodge, and since then its members have raised more than $200,000 for local charities, colleges, organisations and clubs including scholarships. While its ceremonies are virtually unchanged over the last 300 years, Mr Evans said there are no strange practices involved. “Everyone is equal in the Lodge. It’s about men of calibre doing good in the community. Our motto is to make good men better.” He said they have electricians, builders, painters, farmers, policemen and retirees. Members have to be invited to join by a current member but there is no prerequisite other than believing in a supreme being, regardless of religion. Its members have chopped and sold firewood for years to boost its benevolent fund but were looking to diversify as members were getting older, said Mr Evans. The United Lodge currently has 49 members and is hoping to increase that by 10 next year as it takes on board the Speaking Up for Freemasonry campaign to help members talk more openly about the organisation. It celebrated its 200th United Lodge meeting this week and announced its longterm support for the CACTUS programme, to help provide uniforms, clothing and other items. CACTUS (Combined Adolescent Challenge Training Unit Support) is an eight-week intense mental and physical challenge that takes young people out of their comfort zone and pushes them to the limits. It has been running at the district’s

MASON HISTORY Freemasonry began with the craft lodges of the Middle Ages when stonemasons moved around the country between projects developing the skills of their trade. Being mostly illiterate they learned secret words and signs which enabled them to prove their skill levels to prospective employers. Over the centuries these lodges have evolved into today’s modern organisation. Widening its membership base to include all men of good character, Freemasonry has become one of the world’s oldest and largest fraternal organisations which has adopted the fundamental principle of integrity, goodwill and charity as the foundation for an individual’s life and character. It has also developed as a non-profit organisation which is heavily involved in supporting charity and community service. three colleges since 2012. Sergeant Ian Pigott, Constable Andrew Collis and three graduates from the Waiopehu College programme were invited to the Lodge meeting to share their stories. Mr Pigott, Levin Police supervisor of the programme, said it takes more than two months of planning, and a lot of resources and commitment by the community. “It’s a partnership between the whole community and we couldn’t run it by ourselves,” he said. William Jane-Hansen, 17, one of this year’s CACTUS graduates said he is still on a high from the programme. “The first week is extra hard, people doubt themselves…[but] we took the challenge and embraced it and we’re still a support group for each other.” William lost 28kg in the eight weeks, and gained discipline, he said. “I don’t talk back and I have more respect for people.” He said leadership is key, people working together and trusting each other. If you get the opportunity to do CACTUS, don’t let it slip through your fingers — it’s amazing. I’d recommend it to anybody.”

POSITIVE PATHWAYS

THEATRE PREVIEW

Trauma can be power By ANNETTE BURRELL What trauma did you experience when you were young? What is trauma? There are traumatic events that take place unexpectedly, and there is ongoing trauma that happens for some people. It is the trauma that develops inside a person that is the real trauma. These are the emotions that get stuck and the negative self-beliefs that are formed from these emotions. Young children have no skills for coping with either unexpected traumatic events or ongoing trauma. They have no resources. They are reliant on the adults that care for them, to protect them and support them to healthily deal with emotions. During the first three years their brains are rapidly developing. The brain is very vulnerable, especially at that time. Disrupted brain development can result in brain pathways not being formed in a functional working way leading to emotional, cognitive, behavioural and/or interpersonal deficits or disorders. Psychological research shows there is a link between trauma in childhood and adult health problems. What took place for you in your early years? The results of trauma play out all through your life. It’s not so much what the trauma is, but what happened inside you. Did you become scared of people? Did you become unable to have a close relationship? Did you comply and agree and do people-pleasing behaviours? Did you become a workaholic, or an alcoholic or a substance abuser to run away from it? Or are the effects more subtle, like me. When I was a baby, my older brother was ill with polio for a long time and it seems to me that I was crying a lot and I was not heard. This led to feelings and internal beliefs of unworthiness, not being heard, the need to be “good”, not wanting to speak up for myself, not

valuing myself. If the child’s significant carer is unknowingly part of the trauma, maybe by not being available, or by providing inconsistent love, or by not meeting basic needs, or by not protecting the child, then the child is going to grow up feeling the impact every day. Those first few years are so profoundly important for a person. When we think about how widespread trauma and its effects are, it would be easy to feel despair. How can someone overcome the internal impact of trauma which happened when so very young and vulnerable? When young there is no way for a child to develop healthy emotional responses, unless the adults around provide loving mature support. But can it be done later? YES. There are many forms of help available. You can choose the one that feels right for you. Whether it is talking and understanding the trauma and the impact, or emotional release work, or body work, or spiritual work. Trauma can turn into empowerment. Trauma can be growth for you. Through facing your own trauma and the emotions attached, there can develop a greater compassion for yourself, and greater compassion for others. This can lead to you living a more satisfying and authentic life. ■ Annette Burrell is an Accredited Journey Practitioner running The Inner Path, supporting people to feel inspired about their life.

LOOKING BACK Making the local news in the The Chronicle 50 years ago this week was former Koputaroa woman Judith Kenah, 24, who had to be cut down, unharmed, from trees in Auckland after landing in them during a parachute jump. Levin Borough Council was given the green light to install traffic lights at the two main intersections on Oxford St. The full cost would be met by the National Roads Board. Two young boys from Wellington on holiday with their families at the Playford Park Motor Camp found a cash register at the bottom of a bank at the camp. It had been stolen from the Centre Store and Dairy Ltd, Queen St, a week earlier containing $4. When opened by police it contained $1.10. Levin School teacher Jenny Burnell, 28, won a trip to the USA, winning the national final of the international farm youth exchange competition. An open drain was suggested to alleviate flooding in Kings Drive, however, chairman of the works committee Cllr A Allen said he would have liked a drain pipe but council did not have enough money. Bartholomew Road pit being used as rubbish dump, had already advanced some 50-60 feet in the first week it was open, and at that rate it was estimated it would be filled to its required height in less than the three years council had envisaged. A large hedge was being removed at Playford Park Domain to expose the Athletic Rugby clubroom to the road and help combat constant vandalism.

How do I rejuvenate a frost-damaged Felicia? Give it a light trim and cut back any overhanging plants. If that doesn’t work, you’ll find inexpensive replacements in most garden centres. Aka

Dahlias

AHLIAS are one of the best value garden plants for summer colour. Planted in spring, they will flower from December right through summer to late autumn. Native to Mexico and first introduced into Europe in the 1600s, dahlias have been so extensively crossbred over hundreds of years that the dahlia family now includes a large range of flower types, plant sizes and every colour imaginable. And over 40 of these different varieties are still available to purchase right now from nzbulbs.co.nz. Dahlias are sorted into main groups according to their flower shape. The most common types are the cactus dahlia, with a spiky appearance and decorative dahlias which include a range of forms from tight ball-shaped flowers through to more open forms called water lily dahlias. As well as these two, other common types include dwarf forms ideal for borders or

potting, and single flowered forms. Dahlias are frost tender and should not be planted out until all danger of frost has passed. They prefer a full sun location, but will tolerate some shade. Drainage is very important as the tubers do not like being water logged for any length of time. In high rainfall or wet areas they can easily be grown by using slightly raised beds to help with drainage. Plant the tubers with the crown just below the surface of the soil and water in. Little attention is required during growing other than to make sure they’re watered if conditions get quite dry. Removing old flower heads will keep the plants looking tidy and helps the plant to keep

DAHLIAS ARE ONE OF THE BEST VALUE GARDEN PLANTS FOR SUMMER COLOUR.

The Greenery - Good Things Growing Just south of Manakau, you come across the site of the old Pukehou Nursery, now named The Greenery Garden Centre. The Greenery is a fresh new Garden Centre, with a vast range of interesting plants and knowledgeable staff. Grant Irving, who runs it with partner Tina Mullins, is a soil specialist with knowledge of every type of ground from Wellington to Rangitikei.

Tina is a plantswoman and landscape designer. Since establishing The Greenery in 2012, Tina and Grant have been upgrading the site and the range of plants, while keeping some of its old charm in the established location. “The changes we’ve made and our fresh approach to retail” Grant says “have been well received by customers”.

flowering to the end of the season. The flowers can be picked for indoor use but will not continue to open off the plant, so should be picked only when they are open already. Dahlia plants go through different stages of growth depending on the day length. During long day length in mid-summer the plants produce a lot of top growth and flowers. Decreasing day length during autumn triggers the plants into tuber production below the ground. The tubers prepare the plant for winter dormancy and store energy ready for growing again next spring. Because our winters are relatively wet, tubers can be lost to rot if left in the ground over winter. It is best to dig them up each year in late autumn after the first frosts have knocked the leaves back. Lift them carefully and split any large clumps up into smaller ones. Be sure to keep some of the crown as a part of each section when splitting the clumps — it is from the crown that the new shoots develop in spring. Rinse the tubers off to clean them and after drying, store them in a cool, airy place until replanting. ■ www.nzbulbs.co.nz

‘‘The new layout is well done and inspiring; the stock is fresh, healthy and the level of service is very high. Tina says “people are always welcome to pick our brains on what will thrive, look good and work best. We love to help people make the most of their properties in the most cost effective and efficient way”. The Greenery is open seven days from 9am-5pm.

kingfisher daisy or blue marguerite, this pretty perennial is a South African native, preferring full sun and good drainage. Keep trimmed and dead-head as needed for flowers throughout the summer. Cuttings root easily: find a healthy non-flowering stem to take a piece with a heel, removing lower leaves before planting. Keep watered and transplant once there’s obvious new growth.

Should I destroy grass grubs found in garden soil? Well, I would! It’s not just grass these pests attack, they also damage the roots of many other plants, including pot plants. Once hatched, grass grub beetles eat foliage from vegetables and fruit trees as well as pasture. They go on to lay eggs in the soil; these hatch into grubs within three weeks and immediately start feeding on the roots at hand — maybe your precious plants. Cultivating the soil exposes grass grubs — what happens next is in your hands.

BOWLS UPDATE

First championship Central The Central Bowls club’s first championship of the season, The Bub’s Waddell Balloted Triples was won by N. Kopke’s team of B. Taylor and A. Whiley with runnerup G. Burn’s team of I. McQueen and G. Milligan. The monthly club Tuesday triples began with a full green of keen players enjoying great bowling conditions after a long period of rain. B. Taylor, D. Walker and N. Kopke took out first placing, D. Comber, I. McQueen and D. Collis second, with D. Madden, V. Hudson and A. Malone third. A very inclement Friday’s rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the six local area clubs that met together to play the annual Ladies Banner, which was won this year by the host club Central after a joint decision was made to abandon afternoon play due to rain. Central’s men’s and women’s fours

championships have been completed. Dot Collis, Viv Hudson, Jen Watt and Judy Fisher took out top placing in the final against June Mears, Aileen Kopke, Stephanie Vincent and Samantha Sweeney. Nicky Morgan skipped the very keen and skilful Junior team of Dylan Thomas, Stacey Thomas and Derek Taylor to win the championship over serious competition. October 25 is the start of the Sunset Mates in Bowls season. This is especially for those wanting to experience this sport for the first time and for others who enjoy an evening of social bowls. Flat soled shoes please. All other gear is provided. Please be there for 5.15pm for a 5.30pm start. $5 a player which includes finger tea at 7pm. The contact for Sunset Bowls is Vianna on 368-9918.
