Holly Moses - her story At 27, I was obese. I was slow, unhealthy and suffered from a lack of energy and confidence. My physical state was a reflection of not only bad eating habits and lack of an active lifestyle but it also represented the person I was at that time of my life. I was coming out of a long term relationship, had been involved in an accident and as a result was suffering from depression, anxiety and felt stressed. I didn't know where I was going or which direction to take. I was at "rock bottom". After a time of healing and reflecting I realised for my whole life that I had grown used to taking care of others, I was always more concerned about the ones I loved rather than myself. I knew things needed to change and this is when I decided to make healthier choices and a happier me. I wrote down my goals time and time again. Improve my fitness was one, completing this list of goals made me feel so overwhelmed. Realising all the work I had to do and putting a time limit down for each goal seemed impossible. After yo-yoing in physical activity and over-indulging in foods, I weighed in at 110kgs. I heard about Arena Fitness at The Trusts Arena. I knew it wasn’t expensive, it was a 5 minute drive from home and the staff were really good. At 110kgs I knew that if I was going to start at a fitness centre that isn’t just for women, I would need to feel supported as much as possible. I booked an appointment and they were friendly and listened to my concerns and goals. With a lot of support I now weigh 84kgs. My fitness has improved tremendously and I have heaps more energy. I very rarely see my GP which saves money. My work takes me away from home so getting to Arena Fitness as much as possible can be difficult, but considering all I have achieved so far, it no longer seems impossible. When I am home, I try to attend the gym twice a day, six days a week and I keep to my meal plan as much as possible. I still have a sweet tooth at night and takeaway food is tough to avoid but I always pick myself up and try again the next day. If there is anything I want to share it is to love yourself. Love yourself and don’t lose heart when you fall off track. Reach out to the people you love and be honest. Today I am a completely different person. I have learned to take care of myself as well as those I love. I am happier, fitter and stronger because I built up enough courage to improve myself. Now my daughter loves coming to Arena Fitness with me, so I am instilling good habits in her. Through our example my youngest girl is excited to attend when she is old enough. Together we’re breaking a vicious cycle and setting healthy examples for our family and friends. If you are reading this and feel inspired, all I have to say is “Yes! You can do it!” I promise you will not regret it. Now, as much as working out hurts, it now drives me crazy if I can’t get my fix. Fitness is now a part of my life and I love it!

If you want to make a positive change in your life, come in and chat to the team at Arena Fitness today. Just mention you have read this article and you will receive a FREE 3 day trial!

Helping Heather battle cancer is a great cause Heather Moore is one of the team at The Trusts and we think her story will reach into your hearts. We invite you to help Heather and her 10 year old daughter Ayla. Heather is an amazing young mother and “one of ours” here, at The Trusts. She's a dedicated, hardworking and loyal team member at West Liquor Lincoln Centre. But she has an inoperable brain tumour and needs $80,000 for a drug called Avastin that she will have to pay for herself. Avastin is a chemotherapy drug that holds out the hope of everything from a few more years of life to complete remission. We, her friends and colleagues, are supporting her, but if you’d like to assist, all donations will be gratefully received. Heather has been having health problems since she was 16, but it was only six years later that doctors suspected a low grade brain tumour and put her on a waiting list. Unfortunately it was a grade three tumour on a scale where grade four is the worst and usually terminal.

In March 2011, she had an “awake craniotomy” to remove as much of the tumour as possible, staying awake to read nursery rhymes to ensure the removal didn’t affect her speech. The surgery and weeks of radiation therapy and months of chemotherapy almost did the job. Almost but not quite. Four years later the tumour re-established itself and is now inoperable.

Avastin would close the blood flow to the tumour and allow Heather to stop taking steroids which have created a huge amount of swelling along with other side effects. If it was funded in New Zealand, Heather would already be on Avastin but it isn't and three months of treatment costs a staggering $50,000. However, it is worth it. It will fight the cancer, reduce the swelling and give Heather her livelihood back. It would also give Heather and Ayla precious time together.

That was four years ago. She was 22 at the time, and Ayla six.

A couple of minutes with Kayla Cullen She’s one of the most athletic netballers in the world and she’s based right here in Auckland. We caught up with Kayla Cullen of the SKYCITY Mystics.

What sports were you into as a kid?

proud

I was a tomboy and played everything. I was right into sponsor basketball, netball, athletics, volleyball, touch, rugby, anything really. Except swimming. I was useless at swimming. We were graded for swimming, with the good kids being Dolphins, the next best Sharks and the last group were Snappers. Obviously, I was a Snapper. I just couldn’t do it.

Kayla Cullen in action against the Pulse

last year.

Can you tell us a bit about your family background? I’m the second-youngest of seven kids. I’ve got five brothers and a sister. Dad grew up in Kaikohe while Mum is from the Falkland Islands. In Spanish, the Falklands are called Las Islas Malvinas. That’s where my middle name, Malvina, comes from.

If you weren't a netballer, what would you be doing? I think I would be focusing on my basketball and trying to get to the Olympics. But outside of sport, I would love to get into interior design, floristry or something in fashion or beauty.

You've had some major injuries. How'd you deal with those challenges? I’ve had two ACL knee reconstructions. One on each leg. Both took me out for roughly a year. The rehab was not only physically demanding but mentally taxing as well. My family and supporters were a critical part of getting me back on the court and I’m so thankful for them.

What's your biggest asset on court? I’ve played in a lot of positions, from shooting as a youngster, to defending, to now mostly playing in the midcourt. That’s offered perspectives on the game that not everyone gets to see. But I think my biggest asset is conning people. So looking like I’m not interested and then pouncing and having the speed to get there and make an intercept or get a deflection.

Favourite food? Anything with chocolate in it.

And, lastly, I hear you're a bit of a Justin Bieber tragic. Is this true? I was never really into Biebs until his latest album Purpose. But I got hooked on the tune ‘Sorry’, with the Kiwis girls dancing in the video, and things changed. I got the album, played it all summer, made everyone listen to it in my car or whenever the SKYCITY Mystics were in camp. It got a bit out of hand, and Cat Tuivaiti threatened to stage an intervention, but I think I’m regaining control now.

You can catch Kayla Cullen and her SKYCITY Mystics teammates at The Trusts Arena, Henderson, taking on the Magic (June 6), Swifts (June 26) and Tactix (July 2).

Kayla Cullen gets airborne against the Firebirds.

Don Oliver Scholars still showing the way Lauren Boyle has kept up a 17 year tradition of at least one past or present scholar being included in our Olympic team, and two more are pushing hard. Lauren, one of New Zealand’s greatest ever swimmers, was a Don Oliver Scholar and acknowledges the help she got assisted her as she made her way to the world stage. She has just become one of only four swimmers to be selected for three Olympic Games and has the chance of winning an Olympic medal to go with her five World Championship medals and a clutch of gold and silver Commonwealth Games medals.

Last year she took gold in the 400 metres free at the FINA world championships in Russia and silver in the 800 freestyle. This goes with three bronze medals won at the Barcelona Worlds, meaning that she has collected five of the 10 world swimming championships medals ever won by Kiwis. Last year, she also added the women's world record for the 1,500 metres free short-course to her tally. Only Danyon Loader, with an Olympic gold, can claim a career on the world stage that is as illustrious as Lauren’s and even he doesn’t have five FINA world championships medals. One of the new crop of swimmers looking to emulate Lauren is current Don Oliver Gold Scholar, Gabrielle Fa’amausili. The 15 year old has just recently added the NZ U16 100 metres backstroke record to her already impressive tally. Gabrielle burst into the limelight in 2013 when she smashed the world junior 50 metre backstroke record at the FINA worlds in Dubai. This earned her the Halberg Emerging Talent Award and the first Don Oliver Gold Scholarship in 2014. Two years later she proved that her world record was no fluke by successfully defending her title in Singapore.

proud sponsor

Also in 2015 Gabrielle also took silver over 50 metres backstroke in the Commonwealth Youth Games in Samoa. Another former Don Oliver Scholar, 25 year old long distance swimmer Philp Ryan is making a last ditch effort to qualify for the 10 kilometre swim at Rio. Last year he missed by just 1 second and is aiming to put that right later this year. In the meantime, Philip has won the inaugural Upolou to Savai’i race in Samoa, a 22.5km event that follows a course across the Apolima Strait.

Where there's a Williams there's a way New Zealand’s greatest-ever decathlete, and Westie great, Roy Williams is still finding a way to contribute to sport. A long time Te Atatu resident, Roy moved to Te Aroha last year at the age of 80. Earlier this year old friend Ross Dallow visited Roy. During the visit, Roy took Ross to see some high school sport and after watching a particular young lass who was performing very impressively in the throwing events, Ross turned to Roy and said, “you’re coaching her aren’t you?” It seems that one coach can pick another’s style. After 15 years dominating the decathlon in New Zealand and making his mark as one of the world's top five decathletes, Roy began a career coaching promising youngsters in West Auckland. In total his athletes won 28 New Zealand titles, breaking 17 New Zealand records. Some 46 years later and 60 years after his own rise to greatness, Roy at age 81, can still show the country’s youngsters a thing or two. It shows just how good he was and still is. Roy is also helping to drive this year’s Don Oliver Youth Sport Foundation celebrations of 50 years since his old mate, the late, great Don Oliver won his Commonwealth gold medal for weightlifting.

Scholarship applications are open Applications for a Don Oliver Youth Sport Foundation scholarship are now open and entry forms can be found on-line at www.donoliver.org.nz. Applicants can be from any sport, but they must be between their 14th birthday and 21st birthday (both days inclusive), their home address must be in West Auckland (it doesn’t matter where they go to school or train), and they must be athletes with both outstanding ability and the “x” factor that marks-out true champions. Ideally, nominations should be supported by their school, their coach, their club or their national sporting body.

Don Binney, Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE), and Waitakere Arts Laureate was one of New Zealand's great artists and also one of its great conservationists. Put those two elements together and it may be possible to say that he was New Zealand's greatest artist/conservation activist. He was certainly honoured both at home and abroad and as recognisable in his own way as Goldie, Angus, Sydney or McCahon. Throughout his life he was also linked with the environment and the environmental cause. Bethells/Te Henga frequently recurred in his work and he was a long time member of the Waitakere Ranges Protection Society. Conservation, or at the very least, a deep love of the environment drove Don Binney’s work. He formed a very deep connection with nature as a child and it remained a lifelong, central core of his motivation. He recalled being captivated by the Shining Cuckoo as a child and every year the first appearance of this bird was one of his great joys.

west

It was probably this that made him a lifelong ornithologist, a bird watcher and it was his bird watching that influenced the style that was to make him one of our greatest artists. His fame came initially from unique, almost impressionistic, vibrant and hard edged paintings of beautiful, recognisable birds, presented on an often distorted background. The light was always hard and definite, capturing the light of his homeland. This was a combination of effects that he attributed to a lifetime of bird-watching through binoculars. Binoculars focus the eyes to one place and the bird-watcher catches the momentary image of a bird, at a particular moment in its flight. For Binney it was like seeing that photograph that never quite looks like “real life” and yet perfectly captures one moment in time that has gone as soon as it happens. It seems reasonable to suggest that if he had not had this perspective, his art may have developed in a different way. It is almost beyond question, however, that Don Binney would have been an artist. It is inconceivable he could have been anything else. Binney was art and art was Binney. And his talent was such that he burst on the New Zealand scene very early. Born in Auckland and schooled in Parnell, from 1958 to 1961, he studied at the University of Auckland’s Elam School graduating with Diploma of Fine Arts. Almost immediately he launched parallel careers as artist and teacher. Two years after graduating he not only held his first solo exhibition, at Auckland’s Ikon Gallery but also represented New Zealand at the Troisiemme Biennale de Paris. Two years after that, his works were included in an exhibition of New Zealand painting in London and in the "Eight NZ Artists" show touring Australian galleries. In the meantime, he began a teaching career that was to last for nearly 40 years, until 1998. Initially, until 1966, he taught at Mount Roskill Grammar School. In 1967, he received a Queen Elizabeth II Arts Council travel fellowship and lived for a time in Mexico, London and Australia. During this time he participated in the Cultural Programme of the Mexico Olympic Games. Returning home in 1971 he moved to what was then “Swinging Wellington” and with his natural flair for showmanship, became a central figure in the most sophisticated scene in New Zealand at that time. It must have agreed with him because in 1973 he expanded his already significant, and precocious, reputation with an exhibition in London.

"Kotare over Ratana Church", was sold by its owner for more than $250,000, with that money going to aid quake-stricken Christchurch.

The following year he accepted a position as lecturer at the same Elam School from which he himself had graduated and became the senior lecturer in Fine Arts in 1979.


Don Binney, OBE By now his reputation was solid. It was a reputation that burst out of the impact of art that was new and for many, quite breathtaking. His paintings weren’t for chocolate boxes, they were different and striking and expressed both a unique perspective and a veneration of our birds and landscapes. They met with if not instant success, certainly very early success and he sustained a prodigious output that soon became valuable. It was a value that he was to plough back into conservationist causes.

He became the patron of the Supporters' Trust of the Hauturu (Little Barrier Island) bird sanctuary and a supporter of Marlborough's Kaipupu Point sanctuary, regularly producing art to assist their work.

Not many artists see their work become truly valuable within their own lifetime but Don Binney did and he was delighted when “Kotare over Ratana Church”, one of his more famous works was sold by its owner for more than a quarter of a million dollars, with that money going to aid quake-stricken Christchurch. Binney considered himself a figurative painter “concerned with the psychic metaphor of the environment” to which he had gained entry from his bird watching. His work up until the early 2000’s were in oil, acrylic, charcoal, ink and carbon pencil. But from 2002 he worked increasingly in charcoal and coloured pencils that he kept in an old sock that he could take with him wherever he went.

Ahu Ahu Southward, Karekare Beach By Don Binney,1984.

His fascination with the wild West Coast of Auckland gave him the body of work for which he was best known but he later expanded his interests to include the Marlborough Sounds. After his first Marlborough solo exhibition, Vintage Binney, in 2003, he revisited the area and in the process began evolving a new style with a series of both drawings and paintings focussed on the birdlife, the bush, water and the softer light. His works are held in all major New Zealand collections and also overseas. The most significant works are oils/acrylics on canvas or thick paper. He was awarded an OBE for services to the arts in the 1995 Queen's Birthday Honours and in 2006 was invested as Arts Laureate of Waitakere City. He exhibited continuously from the 1960s until his death in September 2012, aged 72.

ANZAC at Waikumete As ANZAC day has grown at Waikumete Cemetery, new elements have been added. Most recently it has been replica cannon and trench mortars of a type used in the New Zealand land wars. They are relatively small and light and were ideal for being transported through New Zealand bush and over our mountainous terrain. Small they might be but they were also very effective and the modern day replicas make a thunderous bang.

This year 10 replica cannon and mortars lined up and fired a two minute salute to commence the ANZAC Day parade and salute the veterans as they marched away. The two older images capture the ANZAC Day 1921 unveiling of the 8 metre (26 foot) granite obelisk that has served as cenotaph at Waikumete Cemetery for the last 95 years. Historian Jock Philips suggests that the obelisk is unique among New Zealand First World War memorials in giving the fern leaf such prominence. The monument erected to fallen comrades by the Auckland Returned Soldiers' Association was unveiled by Boer War and Gallipoli veteran, Major General Sir Edward Walter Clervaux Chaytor KCMG, KCVO,CB. He landed on ANZAC beach Gallipoli on that first ANZAC Day and soon after was hit in the head, suffering a minor wound. Almost a month later he was hit more seriously in the right shoulder and evacuated to hospital. Chaytor was appointed Commandant of the New Zealand Military Forces in 1919. He was made a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order in 1920, retired in 1924 and died in London on 15 June 1939.

These photographs appeared in the Auckland Weekly News in April 1921 and are held in the Sir George Grey Special Collections at the Auckland Library. Thanks to John Snashall for bringing them to our attention.

Te Atatu Motorway Interchange finished on schedule after 2 years When complete, traffic will be able to flow between Northland and Waikato, without going onto the Southern Motorway at all, by-passing the city altogether. Various on and off-ramps (including at the massive new Waterview interchange), will enable other traffic to reach different parts of Auckland by a new route. The causeway rebuild and the tunnels will be complete by the end of this year, enabling the new Western Ring Route, the biggest motorway building project in New Zealand for decades, to open early in 2017.

What's happening on Te Atatu Road? The completed Te Atatu Motorway Interchange looking east. Te Atatu South is to the right.

After two years the hugely remodelled Te Atatu Motorway interchange has been completed, bang on schedule. The massive project was scheduled to finish in early 2016 and national road-builders NZTA did the final planting and tidying up in late April, completing a project that has significantly widened and realigned the interchange and extended the associated North Western cycle way. The Te Atatu motorway over-bridge has been widened with an extra lane on both sides and raised. This gives greater clearance and safety margins underneath made necessary by the much bigger trucks and buses now using our roads that weren’t around when the motorway was first built in the 1950s. Raising the bridges carrying pedestrians and cyclists is an additional safety measure. The on and off-ramps have been widened and reconfigured to give extra capacity and safety and also to enable buses to connect with the new bus shoulder lanes that are being added to the motorway itself, between Te Atatu and Waterview. This stretch is referred to as the causeway, and it is being raised to overcome the periodic problems with flooding during king tides and to future proof the road against any rises in sea level that might occur in years to come. The rebuilt causeway, also widened, is scheduled to open later this year at much the same time as work finishes on the Waterview Tunnels and it’s “spaghetti junction”. Later stages of the North Western Motorway upgrade include the section Te Atatu to Lincoln Road (now being worked on) which is expect to be complete next year and then, Lincoln Road to Westgate the following year.

Western Ring Route opening early 2017 The project is a component in the new Western Ring Route, which involves upgrading the North Western Motorway (SH16) from Westgate to Waterview, building the new Waterview tunnels and connecting these two sections to the South Western motorway (SH20) which links to Manukau and the Airport.

A number or people have been saying that there wasn’t much happening on Te Atatu Road since before Christmas, but appearances have been deceptive. There’s been a lot of work happening but much of it has been underground, and this has posed challenges that had to be solved. With Te Atatu Road going to be widened, a strip of land has been bought from the front of many properties to enable widening. Accordingly, all the front boundaries of the affected properties had to be moved to their new location, closer to the houses. Second, all the underground services (power, water, phone) had to be moved closer to the properties so that they were still under the berms, and not under the road, once the road had been widened. This requires electrical, phone and water specialists who move the services without unscheduled outages of the services to households and with safety to themselves. However, there’s always the risk with road works, that maps of the underground services, are going to be inaccurate. The older the road, the more likely this is to be. That was the situation at Te Atatu Road. Challenges first emerged when contractors found that the very old water-main was quite fragile and needed to be replaced in one continuous operation instead of in stages as first planned. Eventually, project managers decided to do a thorough investigation before going any further. This took time but, it was worth it to get a clear picture of what was under the surface to save time in the long run. It also means that, now, contractors only need a partial lane closure. For the present a north-bound lane will be closed between the roundabout and Vera Road. Later, this section of lane will reopen and the section Vera to the motorway will be closed instead. Closing the lane gives contractors room to work in the berms safely, and for storing material and equipment. From now on, with underground challenges being overcome, residents and road users will see a lot of activity, as contractors race to get the upgraded road built in time to connect with the newly upgraded motorway causeway and Waterview tunnels.

New Lynn Library gets an upgrade After being closed for three weeks for an upgrade designed to improve customers’ experience, the New Lynn library is open and back in business.

The refurbishment has created more space for study, reading, using personal digital devices, library computers and for participating in library events and school holiday programmes. There’s new carpet, paint and a new, smaller and more customer-friendly service desk, together with redesigned lighting to further enhance the sense of space. The layout of the collection has also been re-organised and includes a new separate crime fiction section that acknowledges the fact that crime is the most popular fiction genre in the library. The new computer section layout has more places for people to bring their own devices and lots more plugs to charge devices. The children’s area features a new reading tree, which will be a focal point for parents and children, a place to gather and read together. Whau Local Board Chair Catherine Farmer welcomed the upgrade saying that the board supports libraries by funding expanded opening hours.

The wildcat from the west Unfortunately we have to report that “the wildcat from the west”, Krissy Hunter, failed in her bid to qualify for the women’s wrestling team for Rio.

Krissy has made the astonishing achievement of becoming an Olympics contender after just eight months in the sport. She astonished everyone picking up a gold in her class in this year's Oceania Champs without losing a single point. This earned Krissy the right to go to Algeria to fight for a place in Rio. It wasn’t to be. After a 30 hour flight half way round the world, she ran into the world champion in her first bout. It was a close fight and Krissy gave a good account of herself but her opponent’s greater experience and strength told in the end. Krissy’s now back at Glen Eden setting her sights on a new pathway that she hopes well lead to the next Olympics and helping partner Steve Oliver, “The Don’s” son, to build an impressive MMA business in West Auckland.

New off-road bike track at Massey

Off road bikers in West Auckland have a new 1.4km off-road bike loop at Moire Park in Massey that takes advantage of lovely native bush in the area. Created by the Henderson-Massey Local Board, the trail is described by Chair Vanessa Neeson as “challenging”.

A true adventure trail of gravel, old bush tracks and grass, it starts and ends at the pump track near the Granville Drive playground. It's rough in many places, muddy and slippery after rain but hard and fast over summer.

Riders are advised to keep an eye out for the orange arrow markers and watch out for people walking.
