Toolkits a big help to West Auckland Police More than 15,000 toolkits have already been claimed by West Aucklanders and every day sees more going out the door.

One initiative that helped the cause was by Linda Cooper, Councillor and President of the Waitakere Licensing Trust and local policeman and Local Board member, Luke Wilson. Thanks to their bright idea we gifted toolkits to the Waitakere fleet of police patrol cars. This was very well received because as Constable Wilson said police need the use of screwdrivers for removing license plates off stolen cars, measuring tapes to see the depth of tread on tyres and various sized sockets for unscrewing bolts all the time when attending various scenes on the job.

Have you got yours yet? Remember the toolkit is free so why wouldn't you come and get one? We would suggest you send the dog to retrieve one for you but that won't work if he's already got his head stuck in the catflap!

What will you do with your free toolkit?

To claim your toolkit all you have to do is bring your voucher and a household bill addressed to you, to show you live in our area, to a West Liquor or Village Wine & Spirits store. That’s all. You don’t have to buy anything (but when you see our range of superb wines, beers and spirits, you may decide to anyway).

If you didn't get a voucher, get in touch with us at www.thetrust.co.nz/ toolkit and we'll post you another one.

Eight restaurants and bars being modernised as The Trusts bring modern dining out West Hospitality in West Auckland is undergoing a revolution, and The Trusts are leading the way with a comprehensive modernisation and upgrading of eight of its key restaurants and bars. This massive make-over not only modernises the venues but also re-positions them with décor, food style and prices tailored to the community in which each is located. It follows on from the multi-million modernisation of the liquor stores, and just as that made our retail operations a market leader in this country, so the newly revamped eateries are aimed at making the dining out West experience as delicious and delightful as any in Auckland. Re-energising “the scene” in West Auckland shows that the West is increasingly regarded as a great place to live work and relax in. And not just by Westies. People are starting to travel from all over Auckland to find out “what’s going on” out here. And they keep on coming back. We welcome this new blossoming of the West because we’re proud Westies here at The Trusts. Indeed, once we’re through refreshing our existing venues, we’ll start looking at where we might be able to expand our businesses.

This programme will not produce “one size to fit all”. Just the opposite; each venue will be styled to suit the community it serves and the menu and pricing will be built accordingly.

Guy Randall, General Manager Hospitality.

People in different suburbs have different wants. Guy says and he’s aiming to give them what they want in an attractive, efficient and affordable environment. Value for money wins the customer’s approval which in turn encourages more business and then repeat business. That’s what Guy was aiming for at “The Flagship” and now the same formula is being applied to all the venues. First was Kelston’s The Korner Bar which has been re-built as Workshop, a modern community bar. The gaming area has reduced in size and is located more discreetly. There’s a raised pool table area and a stage. The kitchen is half the previous size while the manager’s office is not much bigger than an old fashioned phone box.

Growth is bringing competition which is good. More variety and choice expands the whole market while quality competition sees the bar set ever higher, which is good news for customers. It’s also good for jobs. As the scene grows there are more and better jobs. It’s a great outlook and we can’t wait to see the current refurbishments finished and our hospitality business going full throttle in the not too distant future. What sort of future awaits? Well, it’s massive if “The Flagship” is our guide.

w. Takahe Cafe no

Everything Guy Randall, our General Manager Hospitality, researched, planned and built for when he re-positioned West Harbour's Marina restaurant as "The Flagship", has come true beyond even our expectations. Business at “The Flagship” is up 144% on the same time, last year, the approval rating is high and a lot of the business is repeat business. It’s a pretty big compliment. Now Guy, who moved here from Christchurch at the beginning of last year, has completed his research into the demographics, “culture” and preferences of our other communities and started the roll-out of modernisation of another seven hospitality venues. 4

Iti concept layout.

Guy explains it’s just a matter of making space work better. The modern manager, for example, works mainly from a goanywhere laptop and doesn’t need a big office. In significant contrast is June’s planned refurbishment of Takahe in Titirangi, the former Longdrop Bistro bought by The Trusts in May last year. It will re-merge as a café-restaurantbar called “Iti” (or “small” in Maori). Recognising the unique creative nature of the Titirangi community the design team, which includes well-known Titirangi designer Rachel Lovelace, actually went and interviewed Titirangi residents in their homes. This was to capture a flavour of what local people valued about the interior of their homes and also the environment around it. Because the environment and views are incomparable, the interior of ”Iti” will be natural, minimalistic and sympathetic to the surroundings and to draw attention to them.


The Flagship, Bar 159 The Korner Bar, Iti, Hangar Bar, Bricklane, The Glen, Black Salt. Customers can look forward to some "really cool architecture" and an interior and menu that are bespoke. Even the porcelain lampshades are made especially for Iti. It will be the only place in the west serving Kokako organic coffee and the menu might be considered a little "eccentric". The logic behind the Hangar Bar refurbishment in July, is different again and influenced by the fact that it sits in a very commercial environment and the customer profile reflects that. All the surfaces will be replaced, the dated colour scheme replaced and overall it will be softer and more “female friendly”. Indoor/outdoor flow will be enhanced and hours might be extended. The soft furnishings at Bricklane will be replaced and the décor will, to an extent, be more reflective of the New Lynn area’s association with ceramics and notably Crown Lynn.

Hangar Bar now.

The Glen in Glen Eden will get a spruce up, and New Lynn’s Black Salt will get new outdoor furniture and the upstairs function area will be significantly improved.

Hangar Bar concept layout.

Finally and the biggest project of all, will be the conversion of Bar 159 at the Quality Hotel Lincoln Green to the “Good Home” theme. The Good Home concept is one of a number of bar concepts developed by Lion Breweries; others include the well-known Speight’s Ale Houses and Cleaver and Co. Guy judged that The Good Home theme with its attractive home-from-home comfort was a good fit for Bar 159 and will help to meet the objective of making the bar “the local” for patrons from outside the hotel as well as guests.

The Rise and Rise of Beatrice Faumuin ONZM The incredible career of "Queen Bea", Beatrice Faumuin ONZM, continues with her appointment as New Zealand Trade Commissioner and Consul General in New York. Now, perhaps our most decorated athlete of all time, Beatrice leads NZTE's team in New York, helping New Zealand businesses access East Coast markets. Prior to taking up her current role in March 2016, our Icon of the West in July 2013, and four times Olympian was Head of Talent and People Strategy for ASB Bank. Before that she was founding CEO of the BEST Pasifika Leadership Academy and Charitable Foundation, a Halberg Award winner, the 2015 winner of the World Class New Zealand Award. In short, Beatrice Roini Liua Faumuina, ONZM has barely been out of the world spotlight since 1990 when she first burst onto the New Zealand athletics scene at the age of 16. Now an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM), a four times Olympian, four times Commonwealth Games competitor with two golds and a silver, a world championship, a Halberg Award, New Zealand Athlete of the Year (twice) and NZ Thrower Of The Year, Queen Bea was the Valerie Adams of her generation.

6

Off the field, she has a Bachelor in Business Studies and was a member of the New Zealand Olympic Athletes’ Commission, Athlete Ambassador for the International Association of Athletics Federations and Ambassador for the Special Olympics. Outside of sport she is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO). She also won a Sir Peter Blake Leadership Award acknowledging her as one of six of New Zealand’s outstanding emerging leaders. This came when she was CEO of the Best Leadership Academy and Charitable Foundation. The Academy operates in partnership with Auckland University to provide post graduate courses for outstanding emerging leaders of Pacific Islands heritage, that blend business leadership and entrepreneurship. She even had her image on a Samoan stamp.


Its election time for The Trusts. Have your say on election day! As most people know, The Trusts are owned by the people of West Auckland and every three years, local people get the opportunity to stand for election as an Elected Member on either the Portage Licensing Trust or the Waitakere Licensing Trust. The election happens at the same time as the Council and Local Board elections and is conducted under the same rules. This means that all the electors of West Auckland get to have a say on who acts as Elected Members overseeing the business on your behalf. Being able to vote on the Elected Members means you can make sure this business continues to sell liquor and conduct its business for the good of the community as a whole. This includes that, instead of paying dividends to shareholders, The Trusts return a large share of the profits to the community in the form of sponsorships, gifts, grants and other forms of support for community causes. The Elected Members also make recommendations to The Trusts Community Foundation (TTCF) on where locally raised money from TTCF gaming machines is returned to your community. This year’s elections will happen in September/October, with voting closing at noon, Saturday 8 October. They will be conducted according to the Local Electoral Act 2001 (LEA), the Local Electoral Regulations 2001 (LER) and the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012. Voting is by postal vote and is on a First Past the Post (FPP) basis - which means that candidates with the most votes are elected. The official results will be made available on Thursday 13 October.

The election timetable is: Wednesday 13 July • Public notice of the election is made and nominations are called.

Friday 15 July • Nominations will open, allowing people to put their name forward for election (or have someone nominate them). • Electoral rolls open for inspection.

Friday 12 August • Nominations close (12 noon). • Electoral rolls close. (So, if you want to stand for election you must be nominated by noon on 12 August).

Wednesday 17 August • The names of candidates will be published.

Friday 16 September • Voting packs will be posted to electors.

Saturday 8 October • Election Day. Voting closes 12 noon. Votes will then be counted. • Preliminary results will be available as soon after close of voting as possible.

The official results will be made available on Thursday 13 October. 7

Te Atatu's Chinese Opera diva now takes her art form to the world China included Reminders are all round us of how West Auckland has become a multicultural society. A striking example is having a Cantonese Opera diva, who lives in West Auckland being invited overseas, including back to China, to perform her art.

That's the life being lived by Te Atatu Peninsula's Audrey Chan, who arrived here with her family in 2000, founded the Cantonese Opera Society of New Zealand and 12 years later received a QSM for charitable works. This month Audrey and several other members of the COSNZ are in Guangzhou to take part in a week long, international, Cantonese Opera Festival. Audrey is one of the star attractions and recognised by the esteemed title of “Teacher” in China. She will be performing in “The legend of the Embroidered Shoe” alongside one of China’s top stars, Peng Chi Quan.

A more recognisable Audrey. Audrey in full costume and make-up.

The event is held every four years and this is the third appearance by the West Auckland Chinese Kiwis and at least eight countries will be represented. Performing alongside Mr Peng is nothing new for Audrey. Such is the standard being achieved by the Cantonese Opera Society, Mr Peng has eagerly travelled here a number of times in the last decade to take part in a regular Chinese Opera concert initiated by Audrey. “A Night at the Chinese Opera” is an annual concert production organised by Audrey and a small team of helpers, in which New Zealand based performers (most from the Cantonese Opera Society) and some of China’s top stars present a feast of excerpts from some of China’s favourite operas. The event is usually up to four hours long and features six or seven excerpts staged in gorgeous authentic costume and traditional make-up, set against professional backdrops performed to authentic music. The most recent, another featuring Peng Chi Quan, was in May 2015 in conjunction with the Chinese Community Centre.

organised of course by the Chans. The garden was opened by the Governor General, His Excellency, Sir Jerry Mataparae, and the Chinese Consul General. Audrey has since taken her fundraising international. In October last year, she and opera society members Marianne Tsan and Lucy Fong travelled to Hurstville in Sydney, described as Sydney’s real China Town, to participate in a major international festival. This raised $10,000 each for the Braeside Hospital and the Can Revive Cancer Foundation.

So far the concerts have raised more than $500,000 for causes as varied as surf lifesaving, leukemia and blood disease, the Special Olympics and several donations to Waitakere Hospital.

Then the troupe travelled to Hong Kong for performances, returning to take part in the “Nixon in China” production at this year’s Auckland Arts Festival. “Nixon in China” celebrates the time when President Richard Nixon took the first steps to end the Cold War. He travelled to Beijing to meet the founding father of post-war China, Mao Zedong. This led to the end of the Vietnam War. Soon after, in 1976, Mao died and two years later Deng Xiaoping became China’s leader. He responded to Nixon’s overtures by opening China to the world for the first time since it went communist in 1949.

The first gift to the hospital was for vital equipment for the maternity facility. This was followed up by a garden; an oasis of calm and tranquillity for expectant and new mothers. It includes two stone lions donated by the Government of China,

Audrey has also played a leading role in the development of the Auckland Lantern Festival, Chinese New Year celebrations and the country’s first and for a long time only Moon Festival that was held right here in West Auckland.

Not only have these events provided a deep “immersion” in culture for migrants and New Zealand Chinese, along with an increasing number of non-Chinese converts, but they’re also fundraisers for worthy causes.

It is doubtful if any New Zealand woman, or any New Zealand lawyer male or female, has had a more astounding career than Dame Sian Elias, the Titirangi girl who grew up to be the Chief Justice, head of the judiciary and sometimes, even, head of state.

In the lead up to this landmark court case, Dame Sian acted as lawyer for a number of high profile Treaty of Waitangi cases. In 1984, she helped Nganeko Minhinnick's Manukau Harbour claim to the Waitangi Tribunal and she was later a lawyer in several cases for the Maori Council. One was opposing the Government selling radio frequencies and another opposing any challenge to the 1994 Maori electoral option.

As the Chief Justice Dame Sian is head of the judiciary; that is to say, head of all our courts. She presides over the Supreme Court, manages the relationship between courts and Government, advises the Attorney-General on judicial appointments and stands in for the Governor-General if necessary.

She was also instrumental in the Treaty of Waitangi gaining the partnership status it has today. It was a case she helped to present for the Maori Council in 1987, that caused the president of the Court of Appeal, Sir Robin Cooke, later Lord Cooke of Thorndon, to hand down a ruling that "partnership" is a key principle of the Treaty of Waitangi. This was a landmark decision in our history.

She has been in many ways a revolutionary in the New Zealand judicial system. Perhaps most notable of the causes where she has tackled Governments head on, was her championing of Maori issues. This culminated in the 2003 Court of Appeal case of Ngati Apa v Attorney General which found that Maori had retained customary property in seabed or foreshore and that the Maori Land Court had jurisdiction to determine status of foreshore and seabed. Dame Sian was one of the judges.

It is one of the reasons, but not the only one, for which Sian Elias has sometimes been regarded as an activist, more recently as an activist in the cause of Maori. But that wasn’t always the case. In her earlier career she specialised in company law and was leading figure in the long-running Equiticorp case, one of many that followed the investment bubble of the 1980s.

Sian Elias' unusual name stems from having a Welsh mother and an Armenian father. She was born in London but was brought to New Zealand while still a toddler and grew up in Titirangi. She went to Diocesan School for Girls, missing out the upper-sixth (seventh) form to go to University. She completed her first a law degree at the University of Auckland in 1970, the same year that she married Hugh Fletcher, later CEO of the Fletcher group of companies. The couple promptly went to do further study at Stanford University, with Sian Elias returning with a Masters in Law. In 1972, she commenced her career as a lawyer and in 1975 became a barrister, embarking on the rapid rise that saw her named chief justice at the young age of 50. She may hold the post until she is 68 and if she does, she will have dominated New Zealand law and, to some extent, politics for 18 years. That’s twice as long as the longest serving Prime Minister of modern times. She served on the Working Party on the Environment and as a Law Commissioner from 1984 to 1988, the year that she and Lowell Goddard were made the first women Queen's Counsel in New Zealand. She was elevated as a judge of the High Court in 1995, and occasionally sat on the Court of Appeal.

Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias.

She was also honoured with the 1990 Medal marking 150 years since the signing of the Treaty.

The Right Honourable Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias,


Dame Sian Seerpoohi Elias GNZM PC QC Singled out by our first woman Prime Minister, Rt Hon Jenny Shipley, Sian Elias was sworn in as our first woman Chief Justice on 17 May 1999. That same year she was made a Dame Grand Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit (GNZM).

Always a strong personality, early in her term at the top, it is said that nervous Ministers of the Crown and their advisors talked about having to make sure new legislation was "Sian Proof". Formidable in her professional life she might be, but all are agreed that privately she is endlessly gracious. Taking after her father who was a GP in West Auckland for many years, she also has a reputation for compassion. This was well illustrated when she made her famous "Blameless Babes" speech in 2009.

Giving the Shirley Smith address to the Women-in-Law committee of the Law Society’s Wellington Branch, she took her theme from Smith’s quote that "we have to find out why blameless babes become criminals." In her speech, Dame Sian said changes in the criminal justice system had to include understanding that we need to address the causes, not just the effects of crime.

With Lt Gen Sir Jerry Mateparae as he takes the Oath of Allegiance.

Chris Timms Jetty is one of many hidden West Auckland gems West Auckland has many hidden gems as legacies from Waitakere City Council and its predecessors. These include the "Art Bridges", various public art works and historic buildings, and several more recent places of worship created by different world faiths. But perhaps the most unusual are the two jetties on Henderson Creek.

The rather beautiful Chris Timms Jetty was opened in November the following year. The Chris Timms Memorial Jetty can be accessed from the playing fields below The Trusts Arena.

One is at Tui Glen where an historic jetty was lovingly restored. The other is the Chris Timms Memorial Jetty hidden away on the grounds of The Trusts Arena. A former mountaineer, Chris Timms achieved lasting fame as the Olympic gold medal winning yachtsman who finished twice in his gold medal race at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Racing in the Tornado Class Chris and Rex Sellers were so far ahead of the fleet that when they finished, TV crews hadn’t had time to arrive and set up to film the event. Undeterred they asked Chris and Rex to sail back out and repeat their finish for the camera; which they did and still crossed the line before the fleet arrived.

On the East Ridge of Aoraki Mt.Cook, Christmas Day, 1971.

Chris and Rex then went on to take silver in the Tornados at the 1988 Seoul games. Chris was one of the founding trustees of the Don Oliver Youth Sport Foundation, a member of Sport Waitakere and also deputy chairman of the Trust that built The Trusts Arena. He died in March 2004 while practising for a Warbird show, when his vintage Fouger Magister jet dived into the Firth of Thames.

Netball's neighbours go their separate ways You’d better be quick if you’d like to be courtside for some ANZ Championship netball, as this will be the last season for the competition.

In 2017, the Australian and New Zealand teams are going their separate ways, with two new competitions announced. The Aussies will run an eight-team domestic structure for next year, while New Zealand will have a six-team competition. That'll feature the five current ANZ Championship teams, plus one new side based within the Northern Zone. So, if you want to see the SKYCITY Mystics taking on the likes of the NSW Swifts (and Laura Langman), best you get along to The Trusts Arena in June. The new elite domestic competition in New Zealand will see the teams play 15 games each in a triple round robin. That’ll be followed by a two-game finals series amongst the top three sides. It’s hoped the best Kiwi teams will also square-off against the top Aussies - and potentially the best from other countries too - in an end-of-season ‘Champion’s League’. New Zealand teams will still be able to select at least one international player, so the likes of Serena Guthrie and Jhaniele Fowler-Reid will have an opportunity to stay involved. While, to be eligible for the Silver Ferns, players must represent a New Zealand team in the local competition. The SKYCITY Mystics have had a tough start to this season, compounded by a run of The athleticism and persistence of Anna Harrison has made life difficult for opposition attackers throughout the season.

injuries. Among those to have spent time on the side-lines have been Temalisi Fakahokotau (back), Serena Guthrie (Achilles), Kayla Cullen (foot), Nadia Loveday (back) and Holly Fowler (foot).

International players, like Serena Guthrie (pictured), will still feature when the New Zealand elite domestic competition launches in 2017.

The team is still in the hunt to make the semi-finals though, with one of the individual highlights being the form of Anna Harrison. She has been a menace in defence after returning from the birth of her second child and has regularly topped the overall match stats for intercepts and deflections. With the Northern Zone needing to support two teams in 2017, the SKYCITY Mystics will have a cross-town rival of some sorts. Details of this second team are a fair way from being announced. But one thing that is certain is that June and July present your last chance to check out the ANZ Championship.
