Aim is to patrol every night

Continued from page 1.

The patrol has about 13 volunteers who work to help keep one of New Zealand’s largest suburbs safe.

“We are trying to be out every weekend but at the moment it’s only once a fortnight,” says Scott Lawrence, the Co-Patrol Leader.

“If we had 50 people we’d be blazing. We would be out every day and night of the week.”

Scott points to the Napier Community Patrol, which has 15 cars and 200 patrollers to cover an area of a similar size.

The Karori Patrol covers from

Brooklyn in the south to Crofton Downs in the north and includes Wadestown and Wilton.

The time commitment for volunteers is not high. “We need volunteers who can give us one hour a month,” Scott says.

“Our focus is to keep Karori safe, preventing crime and reducing harm in our community.”

The patrol does this by being visible and highly present in the community.

“Our patrollers are all volunteers from the Karori community.

“Our trained patrollers have an active presence in the community working closely with

New Zealand Police.

“We act as extra ‘eyes and ears’, collecting and reporting intelligence and observations to assist Police and other agencies to build safer communities.

“Unfortunately crime happens 24/7. Having people out an about can be preventative.”

As well as working “really closely” with the Police, the Karori Community Patrol is also keen to work with local businesses, Scott says.

“Ongoing community support groups like the Karori Community Patrol group are very much valued,” says the Karori Community Constable Jo Heather.

Karori claims outright victory

Karori’s first Cricket XI scored a resounding outright victory over Wainuiomata in their match at Karori Park on 24 and 25 February.

The result saw Karori move from third to second on Cricket Wellington’s division two table, while Wainuiomata dropped from second to third.

The home team bowled Wainuiomata out for 189 in their first inning and then scored 317 in reply.

Karori bowled Wainuiomata out for 147 in its second innings and then reached 19 runs with-

out losing a wicket.

Liam Roche was outstanding with both the bat and the ball. He took three wickets for 32 runs in the first innings, added 61 runs with the bat and then took five wickets for only 24 runs in the second innings.

Jakob Vandenberg also bowled outstandingly, with three wickets for 29 runs followed by two wickets for 20 runs.

Onslow’s Micah Conroy scored a century in his team’s division 1 match against Upper Hutt United at Barton Oval on 24 and 25 February. Micah finished on 127 in his team’s tally of 338 for nine declared


“They know more about what goes on in the areas they reside in and it’s reassuring to know that there is a service such as this that we [the Police] can use and work alongside in our goal to make communities safer.

“We acknowledge all the work they do in this voluntary service – taking time out of their own lives so that people in their community can feel safe.

“It is very much appreciated.

“When people collaborate together to support a community, it is always an uplifting and heartening thing to see and hear about,” Constable Heather says.

and Upper Hutt United reached 307 for the loss of eight wickets when play ended and the match was drawn.

Dave Hancock was outstanding with both the bat and the ball for Onslow, scoring 80 runs and taking two wickets for 55 runs.

Time saved Johnsonville from an outright defeat in their match against Hutt District at Alex Moore Park.

Hutt District declared their innings closed at 429 for the loss of nine wickets. They then bowled Johnsonville out for 156 and enforced the follow-on. Johnsonville were 50 for the loss of one wicket at stumps.

I recently hosted a meeting which included local property developers and representatives from the City and Regional Councils. The background for the meeting was the need to ensure all people involved in providing more housing in our electorate, whether it be those building them or those regulating and permitting that building, understand the issues which govern the ability to build the houses everyone agrees we need.

There are essentially two types of development; greenfields and brownfields. Greenfields means building on currently undeveloped land, typically ex farmland on the edges of current urban areas, where infrastructure like sewers, water supply and other essential services don’t exist are usually built by the developer.

Brownfields development means rebuilding on existing sites, and there has been considerable discussion in recent times around how much intensification should be allowed in existing suburbs, especially changing of height limits to allow for more apartments.

Most people in Ōhāriu live near one of our 25 schools, and almost without exception, all have had additional classrooms built, replaced or significant works done, over the last six years. A generation of students have grown up never knowing what it is like not have construction going on, around their recreation space in particular. This follows many years of neglect, so it’s good to see future generations should have much better school facilities. Of course, the work must be ongoing and there are schools which still need modernisation and expansion. I’m surprised the new Government is criticising the building programme, but then it is the want of new governments to lay blame on the previous government so they can justify cuts to the Budget. School buildings have a hard life with robust and active students putting the pressure on inside and outside the classrooms, and failing to do the maintenance and renewal

Both have their advantages and disadvantages; the Regional Council in particular see their role to prevent more

runoff and other material ending up in our harbours, especially the Porirua harbour in the case of development north of Johnsonville and Newlands. The Wellington City Council are concerned that the existing infrastructure cannot handle the pressure it comes under when new housing areas are developed. Existing infrastructure is aging and needs upgrading across our city, as evidenced by recent pipe failures. An advantage of intensification of existing areas means more people, therefore more ratepayers to pay for those upgrades.

We are seeing the same thing with our water infrastructure, and now Government has handed the responsibility for fixing the water back to ratepayers, the Council are desperate to find funding for What needs to happen is more central government understanding that places like the Khandallah Pool and the Wadestown Community Centre will be victims of the need for the Council to now find the extra money for water improvements.

Once lost, these facilities will never be replaced, so should not be sacrificed for the sake of today’s

Developers of course need to make a profit, and wish to keep their compliance costs as low as possible. Many believe the Resource Management Act is too cumbersome. We as government for our part have undertaken to rewrite that act.

The feedback was good, but the success will be when there are sufficient affordable houses to meet demand. That is certainly my goal as your MP.

That, and of course having a vibrant and functioning Johnsonville Shopping Centre we can all be proud of.

I took my disabled son swimming in Khandallah on the weekend and reflected on what an iconic spot it is, and what a loss it would be to Ōhāriu. There is a talented and determined local group fighting to retain both that and the Wadestown Community Centre.

There’s plenty to be getting on with.

Huge support for save the pool petition

The battle to save the Khandallah swimming pool from being closed continues.

Khandallah resident John McGrath has launched a petition which is on Wellington City Council’s website, asking the council to save the pool from closure.

The petition is at https://wellington.govt.nz/have-your-say/ petitions/petitions/current/202402-save-the-khandallah-summer-pool-from-closure.

More than 2,300 people had signed the petition when the “Independent Herald” went to print.

It had attracted that high level of support in just five days.

“The summer pool is a treasured part of the northern suburbs, well loved by generations of families and their children,” the petition says.

“Sure it is a bit tired, showing the effects of no investment for over fifty years, but permanent closure is not the answer.

“We recognise things are tight for council, but we don’t want a brand new pool, just to save the

existing facility from closure so that the next generation of children can enjoy its unique experience.

“While other facilities across the city were being invested in and upgraded, the Khandallah Summer Pool has suffered from a lack of any investment for over 50 years.

“There is no similar outdoor pool facility across the northern parts of the city where children and teenagers can hang out over the summer holidays in a safe, active environment.

“Once closed, it is lost to the city forever,” the petition, which closes on 24 April, says.

John McGrath has put together a group called the Revitalise Khandallah Pool and Park group that aims to work with Wellington City Council in a constructive, engaged way to save the pool.

As well as launcing the petition, the group has also organised a series of other actions, including flyers, posters and billboard messaging.

The group is also encouraging people – as many people as possible – to make submissions

to the council asking it to keep the pool, Mr McGrath says.

“We want this the most talked about and the most supported item across the northern suburbs in the Long Term Plan.

“We believe community facilities are the most important aspects of the LTP and we will be campaigning hard on saving the Khandallah pool,” he says.

One of the early initiatives organisaed by the Revitalise Khandallah Pool and Park group was a “Save Our Pool” event, held at the pool itself on 17 February.

Despite giving people very short notice more than 300 attended, including Ōhariu MP Greg O’Connor, who promised that he would talk to Wellington Mayor Tory Whanau and Councillors Ben McNulty and Rebecca Matthews about the pool closure.

TVNZ News also attended the event and screened an item about it in its 6 o’clock news programme later in the day.

Wellington City Council decided to include closing the pool in its draft Long Term Plan for 2024-34.

The council will begin its consultation on the draft Long Term Plan on 12 April and the consultation will run until 12 May.

During this period, people can provide submissions on the proposed plan. After the formal consultation closes people will have the opportunity to speak to their submissions at an oral hearing or oral forum, the council says.

The final 2024-34 Long Term Plan will be adopted by the council on 30 June.

Khandallah Pool was built by the community for the community and acquired by Wellington City Council when Onslow became part of Wellington city.

Malcolm Galloway, who was the Chair of the Khandallah Progressive Association at the time, instigated the building of Khandallah Pool in 1923.

The pool will be 100 years old next year.

“I’m getting a lot of emails of support to keep the Khandallah pool,” says Tony Randle, the TakapŪ/Northern Ward Councillor.

“I still support it going back in [the Long Term Plan],” he adds.

J’ville cycleways still on the table

Let’s Get Wellington Moving’s (LGWM) plan to remove car parks on Johnsonville and Moorefield Roads so cycleways could be established is anything but dead in the water.

LGWM is closing down and is recommending to Wellington City Council that the Johnsonville cycleway project be costed with a view to it continuing, Wellington City Councillor Tony Randle told the “Independent Herald” on Tuesday.

LGWM’s proposal has yet to be considered by the council.

More than 1,500 submission on LGWM’s plan to remove 70 cars parks in Johnsonville and Moorefield Roads so cycle lanes can be installed were presented by the time submissions closed on 5 December 2022.

The vast majority of these –around 95% – opposed LGWM’s plan to axe the car parks so protected cycleways could be installed.

Both the Johnsonville Business Association (JBA) and the Johnsonville Community Association (JCA) came out strongly against LGWM’s proposal, as well as the individual submissions opposing the plan. The plan called for the removal of

the following 70 car parks:

• 8 parks on Moorefield Road outside the new library and swimming pool complex and the Johnsonville Community Hall;

• 20 parks (used by park and ride commuters catching buses and trains) on Moorefield Road near Broderick Road;

• 42 parks on Johnsonville Road outside the shops and Post Office –including two mobility parks; and

• the taxi rank on Johnsonville Road.

After the period to make submissions closed, the JBG and JCA formally asked LGWM for copies of all the submissions so they could be counted and the feeback published.

Following their count they found that only 4.9% of the 1,500-plus submissions supported the Johnsonville cycleway proposal while 95.1% opposed it.

The result of the submission count “is pretty overwhelming,”

Cr Randle told the “Independent Herald” just after the count had been completed.

“The community has said really emphatically ‘no’ to LGWM’s plan.”

The plan, Cr Randle said “was a terrible idea and it was not needed.

“The community saw this and told them [LGWM] what they want.”

Housing being wasted

I had some time before an appointment so headed down Johnsonville Road and came across the former Wellington City Council flats near the old Johnsonville library.

I knew a former tenant who lived here and remember how nice they were and the location to all amenities is fantastic. What a shock now to see these flats derelict and covered in graffiti and left over rubbish strewn around the place. Windows are all boarded up and the

flats are now abandoned.

There is a shortage of accommodation and these flats (if they were fixed up) would be perfect for single people. I am not sure what the plan is for these flats or the land that they currently occupy.

It was very disappointing to see the mess and the run down uninhabitable flats that were once tidy and clean and situated in a perfect location.

Boogie piano queen coming

Australasia’s queen of boogie piano, Jan Preston, is coming to Wellington. She will be performing at St Peter’s Church, Willis Street, at 3:30pm on 2 March and at St Peter’s Village Hall, Beach Road, Paekakariki at 4pm on 3 March.

A Jan Preston concert takes audiences on a journey.

From her first explosive virtuoso boogie piano instrumental, through heart-felt blues and ballads, with a smattering of her original film music, Jan is unique and magnetic.

A long time beloved Kiwi performer, Jan is known for her energy, sparkling charm and wit.

Her 2024 shows include new material added to audience favourites such as the Bumbleboogie and Trout Blues, currently used as the theme music to BBC London’s evening Radio programme.

She will be joined by special guests Mike Pullman on percussion and Radio NZ’s Nick Tipping on acoustic bass, producing a trio of dynamic boogie and blues grooves.

Originally from Greymouth, the Sydney-based Kiwi expat will rattle the cobwebs with her infectious brand of virtuoso piano boogie woogie.

From a background in classical music with a long-term interest in composition and song writing, Jan’s early career began in New Zealand as a founding member and musical director of performance troupe Red Mole.

This led to her first band and a 1980 Hit with Coup D’Etat.

The winner of five music awards, she also composes music for film and TV, is known for her energetic performances, sultry blues voice and candid humour.

Senior Sunday at J’ville Library

March is Neighbours Month and has a focus on people getting together and getting to know their neighbours.

With that in mind Johnsonville Library at Waitohi Hub is holding another after-hours experience for Seniors: Senior Sunday after hours discovery of the library, 10 March, 4:30 to 6:30pm.

“We trialled an after-hours senior session as part of Seniors Week last October,” says Sue Jane, Community Librarian at Johnsonville Library.

“And it was very popular, with all the feedback suggesting that we do this again – so we are!”

Once again the library will offer pods of activity for people to experience at their own pace, or to simply connect with their peers over a cuppa.

The public computers and HIVE Makerspace will also remain open for people to use with staff and volunteers ‘hovering’ to give a helping hand where necessary.

“Libraries have evolved so much in the last few years,” says Sue.

“We’re finding more and more that many of our elders feel quite overwhelmed by what’s on offer and can even struggle with the basics like how to issue a book or use the library catalogue which is all online.

“By enjoying our spaces after-hours, without the usual hubbub that surrounds a modern library, we’re hoping that they will feel comfortable enough to explore, ask questions and connect with staff and each other.”

For more information, or to register your attendance, please ring or email Johnsonville Library.

Johnsonville Library has a Platinum Accessibility rating.

Two Johnsonville champions

Two Johnsonville bowlers – Dale Rayner and Kaaren Guilford – are 2024 national champions.

Dale and Kaaren were part of a composite team that won the women’s title at the Summerset National Fours Championship, held at the Paritutu Bowling Club in Taranaki from 22 to 25 February.

Skipped by Dale, the team also included Reen Bellis and Linda Ralph.

They played exceptionally well in the final, taking out a convincing 26-5 victory over former New Zealand representative Wendy Jensen, Lauren Mills, Robyne Walker and Adele Ineson.

“My team played a skip’s dream,” Dale says.

“They got away to a flyer and just carried it on from there.”

The semi-final was another matter, coming right down to the wire.

Dale’s team and the team skipped by Kaye Bunn were locked at 13-13 with one end to play.

With Kaye about to play the last bowl of the tournament Dale’s team had one bowl closest to the jack.

Kaye had not missed a shot all

game until the final play when she looked to either take out the shot bowl or run the jack into the ditch to take the title.

However she missed by a hair’s breadth to lose the encounter 13-14.

Earlier Kaye’s team had defeated the defending champions Val Smith, Deb White, Ashleigh Jeffcoat, Kimberley Hemingway who were attempting to emulate the legendary Millie Khan, who was the skip of the last team to go 'back to back' in the women's fours, when she won the title in 2002.

As well as the big hurdle Dale’s team had to jump to win the semifinal they also faced another big hurdle.

On day one of section play they won just one encounter, meaning they had to win all of their games on day two, which they achieved.

The 2024 fours title is the second national championship Dale has won. In 2017 she was the pairs champion and she also has been a runner-up four times.

Kaaren, who is also the Johnsonville Bowling Club’s President, now has her first national title under her belt.

The thought that you, or your children, may have threadworms probably makes you feel ill, not to mention wondering if your standards of hygiene and cleanliness have ‘slipped’. In most cases, hygiene is not the issue. Instead it is more the fact that threadworms (also known as pinworms) are fairly common in the wider environment, and easy to ‘catch’. The good news is that threadworms can be treated and there are ways to help your family from being re-infected.

How do you know if you have threadworms?

Usually, and more so with children, there is itchiness around the anus, especially at night, resulting in disturbed sleep and irritability because of the constant scratching. In some cases, you can see the worms in a bowel motion, or on wiping after a motion. Some people may experience nausea, diarrhoea and loss of appetite. However sometimes there are no symptoms, and it is only when another member of the household shows signs, or the worms are observed, that the diagnosis is made.

The worms look like short pieces of white thread, about 5 to 10 mm long. After swallowing the eggs, they hatch in the gut. Within a few weeks, the female adult worms move down the gut to the anus where they lay thousands of tiny eggs, usually at night when you are asleep. Threadworm eggs are colourless, sticky spheres that are extremely resilient and can survive for up to three weeks in a cool, moist environment. These eggs can re-enter the body by being inhaled or swallowed. Threadworms are passed easily from person to person by sharing things such as food, clothes and utensils. Infection tends to occur more commonly in children because they play and come in contact with each other more often. Threadworms can be picked up from other people in the home, at school or at preschool. A child simply needs to scratch his or her bottom, which has been irritated by threadworms, for eggs to be trapped under the fingernails. Then when the child touches his or her mouth or food, threadworms get re-introduced to the body and the life cycle continues. Touching other surfaces leaves behind eggs for other people to ‘catch’. The best preventative measure to take in these circumstances is always to wash hands after going to the toilet, after touching objects that

others have touched, and before preparing and eating food. Bedclothes, furniture, floors (especially around toilets) and other places in the home can all have threadworm eggs on them. Washing sleepwear, bedding, underwear and towels separately with hot water, away from the general washing and vacuuming furniture and bedrooms will help to remove any eggs that may be found there.

Threadworms are easy to treat with medicines and Self Care pharmacists recommends “treating everyone in the house at the same time, even if not everyone has symptoms”. This is because the worms are so easily passed on, as well as the huge number of eggs that are produced so that when one member of the household gets them, the rest are very likely to as well. The medicine used to treat threadworms kills the threadworms but not the eggs and so a retreatment is required 2-3 weeks after the initial course. “Also, we recommend that you check with us, or your doctor, about which threadworm medicine is safe for children under two years old, and for pregnant women.”

To learn more, including some of the self care tips on avoiding threadworms, get your free copy of the Threadworms Self Care fact card. If you have any further questions, ask your Self Care pharmacist.

30 years of outstanding service

St Brigid’s School in Johnsonville acknowledges and celebrates the Deputy Principal Fiona Kearns on her remarkable 30-year tenure at St Brigid’s.

It is, the school says. “an impressive milestone”.

Fiona began her teaching journey at St Brigid’s in February 1994 as a beginning teacher.

She has held various roles in the school over the past three decades, from classroom teacher, team leader, Director of Religious Studies, Deputy Principal and Acting Principal.

Fiona has seen the school change and develop over the years, from staff and students starting and departing, new buildings added onto

the Phillip Street site or refurbished, and the school growing in size from a few classrooms catering for 180 students to 14 classrooms for 330 students as the school is today.

"Fiona has brought a myriad of skills and talents to St Brigid’s,” says Jennifer Ioannou, the school’s Tumuaki (Principal).

“She has worked incredibly hard to ensure it is a school of choice and is highly regarded in the northern suburbs community.

“She upholds the school values of whakapono (faith), māia (courage), aroha (love) and kotahitanga (inclusiveness), and seeks ways to promote these everyday, demonstrating our school’s vision, ‘Learning together

with strength of character and gentleness of heart’.

“Her dedication and positive interactions with students, staff, whānau and our parish community demonstrates her commitment to Catholic Education and St Brigid’s School.

“She has made lasting and positive impacts on the hundreds of students she has taught, colleagues, and the entire school community," Ms Ioannou says.

The St Brigid’s Board of Trustees would like to celebrate, acknowledge and thank Fiona on behalf of the school community for three decades of dedicated outstanding service and leadership at St Brigid’s School.

New team welcomed

St Anne’s Northland welcomed its new ministry team on 20 February when Bishop Justin Duckworth installed Rev Mel McKenzie and Rev Jessie ThorntonBlack as ministers alongside Rev Catherine Froud.


O HOLY Saint Jude, apostle and martyr, great in virtues and rich in miracles, near kinsmen of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of needs.

Mel and Jessie are continuing their part time chaplaincy roles at Victoria University of Wellington which will mesh with their parish ministry.


To you I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance.

Help me in my present urgent petition (make your request). In return I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked.

(Say) three Our Fathers, three Hail Marys and three The Glorias.

“This is a very exciting time for the parish, with the team-based approach bringing in some different skills and opportunities” says Sam Cooper, the Bishop’s Warden.

Our summer pools were built by us. Blends in well did cause no fuss. With hydro slide will cause a splash. And to it many people dash. Through native bush we twist and wiggle. From the children brings a giggle. Severn

Saint Jude pray for me and all who invoke your aid. Amen.

“St Anne’s has been without a minister for over six months and it is really great that Mel and Jessie can support our work in the Northland-Wilton community.”

The parish has a number of community activities, including Mainly Music for preschoolers and their caregivers, monthly Messy Church – when families enjoy activities and learning, Thursday Munch - an opportunity to enjoy lunch and friendship, as is the monthly Guys Curry and Beer.

all are hopen!

Sunday services are normally at 8am and 9.30am, with a family service once a month.

Autumn Equinox, Star Trek and Laser Tour at Stonehenge Aotearoa

The Autumn Equinox this year occurs on March 20 at 6:30pm.

The evening at Stonehenge Aotearoa begins with Tales of the Autumn Equinox from our Storyteller. This is followed by a procession into the Circle of Stones and weather permitting we will see the Sun set on the Equinox Heel Stone in the west. There may be some music and stargazing as well.

Weather permitting we then take you on a laser tour of the heavens beneath the stars at Stonehenge Aotearoa. Star Treks are available on any evening but must be booked in advance. Allow 90 minutes for your tour which should begin about an hour after sunset.


Occurs on March 20, 2024 at 6:30pm

Adults $30, Seniors $25, Child (primary) $5, School student (secondary) $10


The Remutakas are closed at 9pm so people need to book an escorted trip over the hill on the way back to Wellington. The hill is closed from 9pm to 4am. Travellers need to book this by 4pm on the day.

Make your Wedding a Special Occasion at Juno Olives

Greytown Butchery still producing winning quality meat products

Established in 1873, Greytown Butchery is still operating in the same historic building and keeping old butchering traditions alive.

It’s no wonder they con sistently win awards with their multi ­ award winning sausages, having so far clocked up 25 awards in the last 17 years.

Greytown Butchery has recently won their 25th award at the annual Great New Zealand Sausage Competition. Ironically it was the Sausage Competition’s 25th year running.

Greytown Butchery have also recently marked the Butchery Building’s 150th year, recently celebrating 150 years since Greytown Butchery first opened, by Sam Haigh.

Artisan butcher Gavin Green and partner Julie Fairbrother, have transformed this iconic and popular business into a gourmet, Europeanstyled butchery.

Observing the Equinox isn’t the only attraction at Stonehenge Aotearoa because you can also explore our magnificent night sky! The Stonehenge Aotearoa Star Treks programme begins with a short pre sentation on our place in the universe. This is followed by an audio ­ visual that takes you on a tour of our current night sky identifying the planets and notable celestial objects. www.greytownbutchery.co.nz

It has been a very busy couple of months on the grove. Usually we have a quiet period with the good weather, punctuated with markets over the summer and preparing the wedding venue in the grove.

This year our youngest daughter got married, and wanted the ceremony to take place on the grove. Not a difficult task you would think; but when the bride and groom, the groom’s family and serveral

friends are coming from Canada, it made the event more challenging to organise. All was eventually arranged and the wedding took place on a beautiful Wairarapa summer’s day, with everyone enjoying the sunshine in the day and music and dancing in a marquis well into the night.

It’s the first time we have done this, but given the success it shows that others may want to use the grove to make their day even more special!

Craft and garments at the Wool Shed Museum

If you want to know what’s made New Zealand a great agricultural country you can learn so much about it by visiting the National Museum of Sheep and Shearing in Masterton.

The complex is housed in two authentic old wool sheds trucked in from local farms, plus a newly constructed gallery building – full of sheep farm gear, including shearing and wool handling equipment.

You’ll find displays describing the history of sheep farming and its

importance to our nation. For many years New Zealand was said to “live off the sheep’s back.” Demonstrations are held about spinning and weaving on Wednesday mornings and by arrangement. See the history of spinning from ancient times and our collection of spinning wheels.

See our shop with its wide range of wool garments, footwear, sheepskin rugs, lanolin cosmetics, gift items, kids’ stuff and souvenirs. We are a visitor attraction of international quality.

It prides itself on top quality cuts with exceptional service to match.

Remember to bring your chilly bin with you next time for your goods!
