Peril for road workers Christine Linnell

Authorities are urging drivers to obey reduced speed limits on Wainuiomata Hill after an accident endangered construction workers. On March 30, Transfield Services surfacing manager Simon Fieldhouse said a vehicle collided with another and also a resurfacing truck after its driver sped in a construction zone. ‘‘On the last bend coming into Wainui, a gentleman decided to ignore the signage, ignore the TC controller waving him down and he certainly ignored the speed limit. Eye witnesses say he was doing 80 to 90kmh through a 30kmh site.’’ No one was hurt but workers were shaken by the experience. The incident is being investigated by Lower Hutt police.

DANGER ZONE: Drivers on the Wainuiomata Hill road are regularly above the 30km/h speed limit in construction zones.

‘‘This is the second time that a car has careered through our site,’’ says Mr Fieldhouse. ‘‘It doesn’t matter how many signs, cones, TC controllers or

attenuators, the people keep speeding. ‘‘The only time cars didn’t speed was when we rang the police to monitor our site as our

workers’ safety was in jeopardy.’’ Lower Hutt senior sergeant Warren Harris says it is extremely frustrating when a few drivers do not adhere to the reduced speed limit. ‘‘The motorists that go past need to reduce to 30kmh, for the safety of the motorists and particularly the staff in construction zones. ‘‘They are putting themselves and others at risk. It’s not acceptable at all.’’ Hutt City Council’s road safety coordinator Jan Simmons says drivers must be patient while road work is being completed. ‘‘There is a bit of resurfacing work to be completed on both sides of the hill and the work is expected to continue until April 20, possibly longer if wet weather causes delays.’’

Kept safe for the record In the ninth of a 10-part series on Exploring Your Region, Agnes Ginestet takes a tour of

central government’s record keeper, Archives New

Looking stylish


Part 4: What to wear

knew the Treaty of Waitangi was kept here in Wellington and never had really made any conscious effort to go and see it. This opportunity came up when I recently spent two and a half hours with senior archivist and tour co-ordinator Donal Raethel at ‘‘Archives’’, as he calls it. The building located at 10 Mulgrave St holds material created or used by the New Zealand Government at some stage, including paper-based files, maps, photos, movies and sound records. The most famous of them all is the Treaty of Waitangi. Schools, tourists, groups from workplaces often go and see the nine sheets displayed in the Constitution Room. ‘‘You can just come in here, just speak to people at the security desk and come through. We ask people not to carry bags and no photos,’’ says Mr Raethel. The room has controlled lighting to minimise damage to

Selecting what to wear each day can be a time-consuming process, so here are a few simple tips to cut down on the time and effort it takes to dress appropriately. If you have been following this series you may have already streamlined the decision-making process by narrowing down the number of items of clothing you have to sift through. Choosing what to wear depends on the weather and the formality of your day. Check the weather forecast . The weather will eliminate your choices, making decision-making easier. Consider formality and practicality. Consider what you’re doing, how formal it will be, and how practical you should dress. You can afford to wear less practical shoes if you’re not walking around much, you can wear less layers if you are going to be indoors most of the time. Planning your outfit in advance enables you to spend the proper amount of time choosing what to wear so you will look more put together and feeling your best. One way to do it is to put these outfits together in one end of your wardrobe ready to go. Begin your entire look centred on one easy piece such as a dress or a great pair of trousers. Now all that is needed is some complementary layers, and stunning flats or heels. Remember, it is not easier to put on a pair of track pants and fleece, it takes the same amount of time to put on a cute ensemble. It really is possible to be comfortable and stylish. Next week – Part 5 will talk about adding the finishing touches.

the documents. It also holds other records deemed to have been of paramount importance to New Zealand’s constitutional development, such as the letters patent appointing William Hobson as lieutenant governor of New Zealand in 1839. The 1893 Women’s Suffrage Petition is normally there too. Unfortunately it was undergoing preservation work at the time I visited so I will have to organise a trip back to Archives to see the rolled-up metres of signed sheets. I might also come back for a cup of tea at Single File Cafe, on the right hand side of the building’s entrance. On the left hand side, the Gateway is the first port of entry if you are researching material on your grandmother who was a

nurse during World War 1, or if your school project is about the history of women’s suffrage. The card indexes there are also useful for ship passengers’ lists as well as people’s registrations of intention to marry. ‘‘The way to find out whether we hold records that you might be interested in is a bit of a mixture of old-fashioned card indexes, much more recent electronic databases and also the knowledge the archivists have built up,’’ says Mr Raethel. Visitors use the reading rooms to have a close look at maps, photos, microfilms, although not all Archives’ original records are made available to the public. ‘‘Some records are restricted for privacy purposes or they are restricted for national security purposes. They may be restricted for preservation purposes. ‘‘We don’t make very, very fragile records available. ‘‘We make them available in some other format rather than handing over the original records.’’ Some categories of records are progressively digitally imaged and made available online. World War 1 service records are particularly popular. ‘‘We get hundreds and hundreds of these requested and we’re digitising these and putting them online,’’ says Mr Raethel. But digitising all Archives’ records will never happen. ‘‘There are just too many records for all of them to be available online. We make decisions about what we want to put our energies into.’’

Family time comes first Christine Linnell

After years of travels and adventures around New Zealand, Wainuiomata couple Mick and Gwen Surridge are taking time to look back on a happy life together. Mick and Gwen are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary on April 12. They have four children — Alan, Dawn, Brian and Marie — 10 grandchildren and seven greatgrandchildren. They first met at Lake Pukaki at the feet of the Southern Alps in 1950. A hydroelectric system of dams and canals was being completed, and the workers were housed in a small camp by the lake. ‘‘I started working in the post office,’’ says Gwen, ‘‘and this gentleman here came in as my manager.’’ Mick was transferred to Lake Pukaki from Timaru to be postmaster for the camp. Previously he spent five years in the Navy, including service in Singapore during WWII. Gwen became his assistant and ran the manual telephone exchange. ‘‘There were 50 numbers,’’ Mick says. ‘‘We had about six subscribers and there was only one outward telephone line to Timaru to service a public works camp of 400. Gwen would be one of the last telephonists in New Zealand.’’ They were married in 1952. He was 28 and she was 20. ‘‘It was only going to be family,’’ Gwen says of the wedding, ‘‘and then we had a busload [of friends] arrive from Lake Pukaki.’’ They moved to Wainuiomata soon afterward. Mick was transferred from office to office, including downtown Wellington and Petone, before he became the manager in Lower Hutt. They first lived in Hair St, where they started a family and had many friends. Gwen remembers taking bike rides with their children on Sundays. ‘‘We had two bikes, and the wee fella was on a trike. Then the other son was in the back in the carrier.’’ Mick’s favourite memories are the holidays they took every year. ‘‘We didn’t have much money in those days. We were able to get post office welfare cottages, so we moved all around New Zealand with our family. ‘‘It was an experience — going to Foxton on the bus with four suitcases,’’ he says. ‘‘When we look back, those were great days.’’

See no evil I read recently about Piha residents who have launched a campaign to remove a convicted child sex offender from their community. It reminded me of the same sort of incident in Kapiti recently where it was discovered a convicted sex offender was living close to a school. I contacted the school to offer a session for the parents on what we could do to keep our kids safe but it didn’t happen because the person moved away. Commonly it’s the case of, if the known offender has moved, it’s all safe now. Those in the know, know that it’s not the case at all. I know that to many this might sound like I’m trying to sell courses but it’s about avoidance. The key to avoidance is consciously recognising a threat and taking effective action to avoid it. Obviously, denial is not an effective strategy — though a much-chosen strategy. It’s very quick and very easy. Job done. Thinking we are safe when the sex offender moves on is denial. Let’s use our energy correctly. Let’s be real so we can see reality. Let’s appreciate that most people are good but there are many (plural) about who are dangerous. Do not confuse the energy used to chase out of town a single convicted sex offender with the energy used to arm our kids with the tools to identify when they are being scoped by any sex offender. Those energies are mutually exclusive — the former deals with perhaps an element — if they are not reformed, the latter focuses on the reality — those not yet caught.

DIAMOND YEARS: Gwen and Mick Surridge are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this week.

After Mick retired, he became the green keeper at Wainuiomata Bowling Club on Moohan St. Their son Brian built their current house next to the bowling club about 25 years ago. Since then they have enjoyed a quiet life in the valley, close to their family and friends. On Friday nights they like to go to the bowling club for tea. This week, though, they’re going to celebrate their anniversary with dinner at the Angus Inn in Lower Hutt. Mick and Gwen thank their family and friends for all their love and kind wishes. ‘‘Seeing the kids all grow up, and their kiddies all around you — that’s life,’’ says Mick.

Marriage celebrant Sue Loan is eager to see the old Coast Road Church become a unique place for Wainuiomata weddings. She approached Joyce Lockyer from the Wainuiomata Pioneer Church Preservation Society after seeing the March 21 article in Wainuiomata News about the church’s restoration. ‘‘I was thrilled when you could see they were starting to take care of it again,’’ she says. The church has special meaning to her family, as her father-in-law Ken Loan was its caretaker before it was closed to the public in the 1950s. Ms Loan has lived in Wainuiomata all her life. She comes from a sporting family and used to coach tennis until a leg injury stopped her. She has been in the marriage business for 12 years. As an independent celebrant, she provides an option for couples who don’t want a ceremony affiliated with a specific religion. Her most frequent wedding location is Pencarrow Lodge overlooking the sea. She’s also married people on beaches, or in their back yards. The Pioneer Church

would be a great option for couples who want to connect with Wainuiomata’s past, she says. ‘‘I think this venue here, for local people, would be wonderful. There’s a lot of history here.’’ She is looking into the possibility of arranging a horse and cart to bring couples to the church. The site also has the

advantage of being an indoor venue, which makes it suitable for winter weddings. Ms Loan would like to do more business during the colder months, in addition to her busy season from November to March. ‘‘I want to be available to do weddings all year round.’’ ■ Contact Sue Loan at 027 602 7812.



WELLINGTON VASECTOMY CLINIC Dr Shane Dunphy & Dr Jim Aubrey 17 Adelaide Rd, Wellington T: 04 384 5275

NZ has the highest rate of vasectomy in the world with over 40% of men over 40 having had the snip. Why is this? Probably it is because Kiwi males are pragmatic & see it as a practical solution to a problem. It may also be because kiwi women are assertive, talk to each other at coffee mornings & send their blokes off to get fixed.

Nowadays vasectomy is generally performed under local anaesthetic with the so-called “no-scalpel “or Li technique. This is a simple procedure during which the tubes which conduct sperm from the testicles are carefully brought to the skin surface through a tiny 1cm incision in the scrotum, then a small segment is removed from each tube. The operation takes only 30 minutes & men can go home straight afterwards. A new vasectomy clinic opened last year in Wellington at the Wellington Accident & Urgent Medical Centre on Adelaide Rd. Called the Wellington Vasectomy Clinic it was established by Drs Shane Dunphy & Jim Aubrey, both experienced Wellington GPs, to provide a more accessible service for GPs &

their patients. They both previously worked for Family Planning where they were trained by Dr Margaret Sparrow, the pioneer of vasectomies in NZ, now retired. Each has done well over 1000 vasectomies.

The operations are normally done on a Friday to allow men to rest for a couple of days before returning to work on the Monday, although it is best to avoid strenuous activities for a week or 2 afterwards. Men are understandably concerned about how painful the procedure will be. Most are pleasantly surprised at how simple, quick & painless it is. Some are concerned that the operation might affect their sex drive, performance or masculinity. However, a vasectomy has no effect on any of these things as the level of male sex hormone, testosterone, is unaffected by the operation. Further information may be obtained from the Wellington Vasectomy Clinic website www. 8662979AA

A few good neighbours have been awarded food hampers to share at afternoon tea, thanks to Cr Margaret Willard’s Neighbours Day project. Dion Kilburn and Roger and Doriel Allen received the prize hampers from Countdown supermarket last Monday after being selected by Mayor Ray Wallace and his wife Linda. Sixteen people nominated their neighbours for the contest, expressing appreciation for their friendship and support. Dion Kilburn was nominated by Melanie Fryer, who calls him ‘‘the

world’s best neighbour’’. ‘‘He not only checks our house every night just to make sure there is no suspicious activity going on, he helps us with maintenance around our house,’’ Ms Fryer says. Recently they have had trouble with kids spraying graffiti on their fence. ‘‘Dion wakes up each morning and checks to see if there is any fresh paint. If there is he will come and paint over it so we don’t see it when we get up.’’ Roger and Doriel Allen were nominated by neighbours Matt and Cathy Johnston. Matt says the Johnstons have given them rides and watched the house while

the Allens were away. ‘‘In an emergency they helped us, called police and kept us under their care,’’ he says. On one occasion, the Allens gave the Johnstons a bag of apples from their orchard. ‘‘It was perfectly timed, as we were running out of fruit as it was close to grocery shopping day,’’ says Cathy. Cr Margaret Willard is pleased at the outcome of the contest. ‘‘I’ve hugely enjoyed this project and am encouraged and touched by the goodwill that has been shown in our community. I hope next year’s Neighbours Day will be bigger and better.’’

Sometimes being taken away by police can be a good thing, as Wainuiomata Intermediate students discovered on March 21. Wainuiomata Community Police took 10 students for a tour of the Police College and Police Museum in Porirua. The students were selected as a group of hard workers and those demonstrating desirable qualities among their peers. ‘‘Taking time out to run activities like this now and again is refreshing for us as police,’’ says community constable Tony Shearer. ‘‘We often deal with dysfunctional kids with really bad attitudes, so being able to spend quality time with this calibre of young person is great.’’ The students were collected in police cars and driven to the museum. The constables led them in a game of ‘‘spot the person putting on their seatbelt when they see us’’ along the way. After a tour of the museum, the students were taught to lift fingerprints and took part in a mock investigation. Then they took a full tour of the college, which included a search and rescue demonstration on the high ropes. The students then joined the police recruits in the dining hall for a

complimentary lunch of fish and chips before being returned to school. Principal Pearl Murti says the kids loved the trip and the constables found them eager and

well-behaved. ‘‘They could decide what they enjoyed the most,’’ she says. ‘‘They had such a great time, the other kids were keen to go.’’

IN BRIEF Registrations for ‘Pens Against Poverty’

Schools have to submit their scripts for ChildFund New Zealand’s Young Playwrights Challenge, ‘Pens Against Poverty’, before April 30. This initiative comes from the success of ChildFund’s recently-published children’s book, Mary’s Christmas Yarn, a tale of giving to those in need penned by 10 New Zealand storytellers. The book is to be used as the basis for the scripts submitted. It is open to Year 6, 7 and 8 classes. The winning script will be announced in July and transformed into a play. Register at, or phone 0800 223 111.

Flu shots

New Zealand’s National Influenza Specialist Group (NISG) says vaccination is free until July 31 for pregnant women, people aged 65 years and over, and those with ongoing medical conditions. ‘‘Pregnant women are offered free immunisation as studies have shown they are particularly susceptible to more severe outcomes from flu. Vaccination of pregnant women has been shown to decrease the incidence of influenza in their new-born babies,’’ says NISG spokesperson Dr Nikki Turner. Dr Turner says women should also consider immunisation against influenza for children. The 2012 seasonal influenza vaccine includes protection against three types of flu, including the Pandemic H1N1 Influenza 09 (swine flu), which is expected to be still in circulation in New Zealand this season. For free health advice, call Healthline 0800 611 116. For advice about influenza immunisation, visit, or text FLU to 515.

A hangi at Wainuiomata Marae capped off a culture-focused term for a group of high school students. The Year 11 students met at the marae at noon last Monday to build the fire and prepare the meal. They then helped serve their classmates, teachers and members of the marae later in the day. Community constables Aroha Morehu, Tony Shearer and Hazel Remfry stopped by as well. The hangi was the culmination of Wainuiomata High School’s new integrated learning curriculum, led by deputy principal Martin Henry. ‘‘This is their moment to shine,’’ says Mr Henry. ‘‘They do the work and then they get their feed.’’ The students began with

planting and tending vegetable gardens at the marae, incorporating subjects like maths, agriculture and horticulture. They also did some creative writing about the project and learned a pepeha from marae

manager Linda Olsen, which they read aloud before the hangi. Learning to prepare the hangi and doing the job like men is an important step for the boys, Mr Martin says. ‘‘Having good Maori men in our community is helpful.’’

Drivers respect new give way rules

The New Zealand Transport Agency is thanking Kiwi motorists for showing courtesy and patience at intersections during the first weeks of its new give way rules. Agency chief executive Geoff Dangerfield said while it’s still early days, the agency is pleased with the way drivers have responded to the changes. ‘‘Police are telling us that by and large they are seeing a commendable display of patience, caution and courtesy on the roads— and generally speaking, drivers are applying the new rules carefully. ‘‘That’s exactly what we need while the changes bed in.’’

‘‘The rule changes seem to be front and centre in the public mind, and we know people are taking advantage of the online tools we’ve

developed to help them learn the new rules. ‘‘The challenge is to make sure we all keep it up in the weeks and months to come,’’ he said. Mr Dangerfield also reminded drivers it is important to be on the lookout for pedestrians and cyclists at intersections while everyone gets used to the rules. ‘‘Drivers will naturally be focussed on what the other cars are doing at intersections while the new rules bed in but don’t forget to keep an eye out for pedestrians, or cyclists who may be crossing the road — especially children getting to and from school. ‘‘We also want to remind pedestrians to be

extra cautious around intersections — make sure you’re checking what all vehicles are doing before stepping out. ‘‘We’re also urging parents to have a word with their children to remind them that it’s extra important to be careful when crossing the road at intersections,’’ he said. ■ Information on the new rules and resources to help people learn them are at The information includes an interactive quiz, a computer ‘drive through’ animation illustrating how the rules work and resources in multiple languages.

Capital heart of movie action The latest figures showing Wellington has consolidated its place as New Zealand’s feature film capital are further proof the city is broadening its economic base. Wellington’s feature film industry generated $495 million in revenue in 2011, a 4.2 per cent increase on the previous year ($474 million) and a 49 per cent increase on the $252 million generated in 2008. Wellington has 753 businesses connected with the feature film industry. Statistics New Zealand figures released this week show feature film revenue nationwide rose 15 per cent to more than $700m and 35 feature films were produced in New Zealand last year. Mayor Celia Wade-Brown says Wellington’s creative sector offers exciting jobs in a growing global market. ‘‘This is a serious part of the weightless economy of our smart Capital,’’ says the mayor. ‘‘The combination of inspiring individuals and a city where talent wants to live is a successful proposition. I look forward to supporting coproduction initiatives to grow the sector further.’’

increasing, so it can be done — we just need to do a better job promoting ourselves and targeting our efforts. ‘‘Securing direct flights to Asia will allow us to build on this success and attract more investment and talent into Wellington.’’

Mirror Mirror

Cast: Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer Director: Tarsem Singh Running time: 106 mins Rating: PG (Violence) Reviewed by Francesca Rudkin Classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale Snow White is making quite a comeback this year, with two Snow White films competing for our attention as well as Once Upon a Time on the telly. First to the big screen is Mirror, Mirror, starring Julia Roberts and Lily Collins, and Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Twilight’s Kristen Stewart as Snow White and Charlize Theron as her evil step-mother, due out in June. While the trailer for Huntsman indicates it’s a gothic spin, Mirror Mirror, directed by Tarsem Singh (Immortals), is highly stylised, with striking art direction and eyepoppingly scrumptious costumes. But the tone here is more towards the cheeky and comedic. This is the safe and family-friendly interpretation — it doesn’t go heavy on the evil and risk upsetting audience members who want to be princesses. Young heroine (Collins) is as sweet and picture perfect as we’d expect her to be, the Prince (Hammer) whom she hopes can help her rescue her kingdom from the Queen is tall and dashing, and Julia Roberts hams it up and is rude to everyone with her best impersonation of Glee’s Sue Sylvester. Though these characters look like they’re out of another time, the script — give or take the odd ‘‘I bid you adieu’’ — has a contemporary tone. It’s also fast-paced, gently mocks the fairy tale genre, and adds a touch of feminism. It might be a re-imagining but things don’t go much better for Snow White. She still gets sent to the woods to die, convinces the Queen’s henchman (Nathan Lane) to let her go, meets the dwarves and then fights back for her kingdom. The storyline additions don’t add much, but rather impede the film’s momentum; it all becomes just a little bit too silly. The ’tweens should enjoy it, and it looks beautiful for sure, but Mirror Mirror doesn’t quite have the depth or humour to fill its 106-minute duration. ★★
