Farewell for now Sergeant says goodbye after nearly five years By Rhiannon McConnell The Wainuiomata community is what Sergeant Tania van Ooyen is going to miss most now she has left for a teaching role. “I will miss Wainui.” “It was a hard decision to leave.” Tania says she is leaving because a chance to teach the skills she has learnt came up. “It’s an opportunity to influence others on a higher level.” However she has not ruled out coming back one day.

Educational role beckons sergeant Continued from Page 1. “I want to be able to get some more skills and bring it back to the community.” Tania initially came to Wainuiomata on a relieving basis nearly five years ago. “I had no idea what community policing was about.” It was not long before she decided to stay. “The more I learnt and I saw the close nit community the more I fell in love with it.” She says the first twelve months were about building trust and confidence and showing the Tania van Ooyen moves on. community they cared. “We are in the business of caring.”

Tania says she never saw it as work but saw it as a blessing and privilege to serve the community. “You are meeting community groups and agencies that only want their community to thrive and succeed.” Tania is most proud of the strong relationships she built with the community in her time and the drop in crime. Though she is excited about her new role, Wainuiomata is hard for her to leave behind. “It’s been a good journey and I’ve developed good friends from there and will still remain in contact with them and the

community. “I’ve been blessed with a good team.” Tania says she has always been impressed by the way the Wainuiomata Community pulls together. “It’s one way in and one way out but the community looks after each other. “Things get done because people put their hand up and say I’m willing to help” Tania says once they pick someone to fill her role that person will carry on the work and support the community. “This is not about me, it’s about the Police.”

Gifted prefab to be used as art space The Wainuiomata Community will soon have an arts space thanks to a free prefab gifted to the Wainuiomata Marae. Marae chairman Star Olsen says they are very grateful for the building and plan to put it to good use. “It benefits the community and it benefits us.” The prefab was a former Whitireia Polytechnic classroom which was offered free to a good home earlier this year. Wainuiomata Community Board member Campbell Barry, ex-Wainuiomata Rugby Club president John Morrissey and Hutt City councilor Ken Laben bought the prefab last year for a community project they were working on. The project did not end up happening so they offered the prefab to the community. Campbell Barry says they were originally concerned the building would not find a home. “Things, as they do in Wainui, seem to work themselves out- especially when you put it to the community.” He says there were a few groups interested in the building. “It was quite tough. We had to look at what’s the best way the building can be utilized for the whole community.” He says they are very happy the pre-

fab will be put to good use at the marae. “We think it’s going to go to really great use there.” Star Olsen says they hope to have a space to do art in and then an area to sell the art. “That’s the ultimate.” He says it will be wonderful for all the

talented artists there are in Wainuiomata. “We do know there are some gifted kids here.” But for now they have work to do on the prefab including getting resource consent. “There’s still a bit of work to do on the outside.”

Vote in Ikaroa-Rawhiti election Social worker Pam Pilalis and Donna Jensen encourage people to consider opening their homes to foster children.

‘Desperate’ for foster homes By Rhiannon McConnell In New Zealand last year 3884 children were placed in foster homes but Lower Hutt social worker Pam Pilalis says they desperately need more homes. “We have got lots of children who need that support but just not enough people to look after them.” The Hutt Child, Youth and Family social worker and caregiver says people often want to look after babies and preschoolers but they have trouble placing older children and sibling groups. “We are desperate for foster parents for children from three to 16.” She says they have a number of children in the Wellington area who really need to find life homes. Pam says she knows of one family who has seven foster children all from the same family. She says while that is a lot of work, they are seeing an amazing difference. “You can see a difference in all those children’s lives.” She says being a foster parent is not an easy job but the rewards are huge. “It’s not an easy job but it does have

its rewards when you see those children moving forward. “You know you are just helping a child in some way.” Pam has been supporting Wainuiomata mother of two Donna Jensen since she started fostering two years ago. Donna was encouraged to foster by a friend. “I haven’t looked back.” She has had seven foster children in the past two years and does not plan to stop anytime soon. “I love children. I wanted a big family.” Donna’s dreams of having a big family were almost crushed when she was not able to have her own children. She was able to adopt two children from relative and now opens her home to others. “Your doors are always open. “Your house becomes a home.” Donna says the rewards from fostering are massive. One special moment she can recall was when a young boy in her care had not spoken but one morning he called her mumma. She says moments like those are special because it shows the child is beginning to

trust her. “That’s what it’s all about- that child actually putting his little shoulders down and opening his heart.” Pam Pilaris was also foster mother before going into work as a social worker. “I just felt like there are children out there who needed home.” Her mother was also placed in one of the first foster homes, as we know them today, in New Zealand. “It’s kind of been a little bit of my life really.” Pam says they consider all ages and demographics for fostering. “Ordinary people are foster parents but we do say they are extraordinary people really because they are letting people into their lives and their homes.” They do have a vigorous assessment to make sure the parent or parents are safe and have no police record. As a foster parent a board payment is paid that includes food, electricity, education, medicine and clothing among other expenses.

Most Councils in favour of Wellington Supercity By Liam Hyslop Wainuiomata residents will face a significant rates hike if the Wellington City Council’s proposed ‘Supercity’ idea gets the green light. Speaking to around 50 people at the Angus Inn last Thursday, HCC chief executive Tony Stallinger says under a ‘Supercity’ framework Lower Hutt rates would increase significantly more than under current circumstances, especially for places like Wainuiomata. The meeting had been called by leading Hutt City Council (HCC) figures to discuss the proposed changes to Wellington local governance with. With Wellington City Council voting in favour of Hutt City Council Mayor Ray Wallace spoke at the meeting. a one-tier council with 29

Wainuiomata resident Bob Ascheborck is unconvinced by the idea to amalgamate councils.

councillors and one mayor, the debate centred on what is best for Lower Hutt. HCC Mayor Ray Wallace led a presentation into the three options they have put

out for consultation. They are: keeping the council boundaries the same, a united Hutt Valley Council model which merges HCC with Upper Hutt City Council (UHCC) and the ‘Supercity’ idea that the Wellington, Porirua and Kapiti councils are all in favour of. The majority of people were in favour of the second option of merging the two councils together and also scrapping the Wellington Regional Council (WRC) in favour of a regional committee which would include members from the various councils in the region. But the night left Bob Ascheborck, a Wainuiomata resident for 37 years, unconvinced any plans to amalgamate councils are a

good idea. “Wainuiomata won’t gain anything. “When Wainui amalgamated with Eastbourne, Petone and the Hutt we got nothing out of it. “In fact we lost services like our free rubbish tip.” But Mayor Wallace says an amalgamation with UHCC will lead to an increase in shared services as well as better local management of areas which are currently controlled by WRC. Hutt Valley residents have until 14 June to add to the 1400 submissions that have already been made on this topic. To do so and for more information on the rest of the process visit and fill in the survey.

Old laptop wanted back from thieves By Rhiannon McConnell A Wainuiomata man robbed twice within three weeks says he just wants to feel safe and for his life to go back to normal. IT analyst Haibo Yang’s central Wainuiomata home was robbed on two separate occasions in April and May. He says he has been left feeling targeted and watched. “I am really, really frustrated and angry. “I want to get my life back.” His main concern is the return of a laptop with confidential work data on it. He says the laptop is not worth anything to the thieves as it is very old. “If I can get the laptop back my life would be much easier.”

He has even offered to pay $300 to have the laptop back. Haibo bought a house in Wainuiomata just before Christmas and says he felt safe. “Before April everything was so nice.” However on ANZAC day Haibo came home to find the home he shares with his girlfriend had been robbed. “It wasn’t a very pleasing experience.” On that occasion his iPad was taken along with a few other items. He installed a security system and thought that would be the end of the matter. On May 13 he forgot to set the alarm and came home to find a thief had been in his house again.

This time an old laptop Haibo used to back up files was taken. Another laptop, two cameras, a 32inch television and power tools were also stolen. Haibo has since spent a lot of money and time investing in security cameras, locks and the security system. “I have gotten myself well prepared.” He now takes all his valuables to work with him, which he says adds a lot of time. “It really has affected my life.” Haibo says he hopes his laptop will be returned and he can just move on with renovating his home. “I just don’t want to give up this house.”

“This will allow patients to be seen in either location.” He says they plan to have a single telephone number for both surgeries for booking appointments and making enquiries. “This may take a few months to materialise but planning is well underway.” The Hutt Central clinic also runs a Thursday evening clinic which is good for working people. “It could well be something we could do in WOA.” Philip Harrison is a Yorkshireman who came to New Zealand in 2004 with his young family on a retirement sabbatical and ended up becoming a Kiwi. Earlier in his career he spent time as a hospital doctor then spent much of how life in medicines research and medicines regulation, whilst maintaining an interest in Emergency Medicine. He became a Fellow of the Royal NZ College of GPs and subsequently HCHC was asked by them to become a Teaching Practice. HCHC has also attained the College quality standard known as ‘Cornerstone’, all within 18 months of commencing trading. Dr Philip says this was largely due to the dedication and commitment of the team that supports him, whilst he gets disproportionate credit.

Injury turned creative outlet into business By Rhiannon McConnell Starting Facebook store LilyRose did more than just make some extra money for mother-of-two Lisa Winter, it gave her a positive outlook in the midst of a back injury. Wainuiomata resident Lisa started LilyRose three years ago when she injured her back lifting her children. “I wanted to find something positive I could do.” She says she was only being told what she could not do so she started the business. “It’s helped keep me busy and given me a really positive outlook.” LilyRose is named after the

middle names of Lisa’s two daughters Hayley and Charlotte. “They are really part of the inspiration.” Before the injury Lisa was a florist for 12 years. “I loved colour and texture.” That love is evident in the colourful kid’s clothes and toys she makes. She says she loves making people happy through her work. “It’s something I absolutely enjoy. “It’s rewarding.” She runs the whole business off her kitchen table and computer. “It’s a house hobby that has escalated.”

One favourite item is a carrycot using a pattern taken from one her grandmother made her thirty years ago. “They’re probably the thing that is keeping me the busiest.” Lisa has customers from across New Zealand including Auckland and Invercargill. Despite the popularity of LilyRose, Lisa says she does not want to make it too much bigger. “I like it being small and niche.” She has plans to do a baby range and says as her girls grow so might her clothing line. “There are lots of ideas it’s just finding the time to get it out.” A back injury encouraged Lisa Winter to start an online business.

“No, definitely not. I’m worried Wellington may prioritise their wants above smaller cities.”

“No, I think everthing is alright as it is at the moment.”

“No. Look at Auckland.”

“One supercity would be better.”

“No. It didn’t work in Auckland. You need people who know the area to understand the issues.”

Supercity Council meeting

I was at the Wellington City Council meeting when they voted for change to a super-city . They voted for a first tier of council and to go for change. It is the local Government commission that will make the decision about if we have a Unitary authority. The WCC have no choice but to

put in something to local Government Commission. It is putting pressure on them and if they do not put something in they will be seen as doing nothing . Councillors had lots of concerns from flawed consultation and Council not giving local representation. The meeting was emotional and

had to be adjourned. There was discussion on the Wairapapa Unitary Authority. What Wellington City Council is putting in is a submission and it’s not the final outcome. The WCC committee did say the public have final say through a referendum. They did acknowledge other

New tyre shop gives ‘wow’ factor

Manager Lee Harper wants to create a clean and nice environment for those who need tyres.

Support for Meka Whaitiri

T he Wa i nu iom at a Marae hosted an evening in support of Meka Whaitiri’s decision to run for the vacant Ikaroa Rawhiti seat on Saturday night. Meka Whaitiri is running for the Labour party in the up coming byelection on June 29 due to the passing of Parekura Horomia. Marae Chairman Star Olsen says the night was enjoyed by all and they were very happy to host Meka. “Meka is passionate about ensuring our rangatahi have a voice on the political front.”

By Rhiannon McConnell There is a new tyre shop in the Valley and their focus is making customers go ‘wow’. Tubby’s Tyres Manager Lee Harper says they want to create a fresh, clean and nice environment for customers coming to them for tyres. “We are going to do things so new people in Wainui are going to go, ‘Wow what are those guys doing now.’” The store has moved in behind Caltex in the old Firestone garage. It is their first store but Lee says they are planning on starting one in Petone and Auckland as well. “This is our first test run.” Lee says he loves Wainuiomata and they want to encourage people to do their business in the valley instead of going to the Hutt. “It should stay here in the com-

munity.” The bright green wall and comfortable waiting room with a TV and DVD player are all to attract families and make them feel comfortable while they wait. “We want to make it as homely as possible.” He says sometimes a workshop can be intimidating but they have a comfortable waiting room with a TV and DVD player. “We want everyone to feel welcome.” Lee says they have already had interest from people walking by. Lee says one of the plans they have is to start a business hub with Caltex, Wainui Workshop and other local businesses. This would involve a loyalty programme and other deals. “We can do it together,” he says.

The man behind the Odes By Rhiannon McConnell Tony Watling has not been writing poetry his whole life; it is a passion he discovered later in life after getting a computer. Tony says his bad spelling put him off writing in his younger years. “You couldn’t read a blimmin word I had written.” He left school at 13 and says spell check has made all the difference. “With the computer it’s easy.” Tony, 87, started writing ten years ago when he retired from his job as a toolmaker. “I use to scribble a little bit of poetry at the bottom of birthday cards.” He jokes it was to give his wife some competition since she was the one who wrote poetry.

Then and now

Tony started writing Odes for the Wainuiomata News on March 24, 2010. Since then every week one of his Odes about the previous week’s news has been in the paper. He has collected four books of his odes. Tony says he writes on anything and everything that comes to mind. Tony has written a book of poems, An Old Settlers Odes, and hopes to write another one. He has also written a poem about his life. “You name it and I write it.” Tony moved to New Zealand in 1950 and was a toolmaker. When asked how long he will write for, he says as long as the paper is going. “Till I get old and decrepit.” Tony says it usually takes him an hour to write an ode.

Queen Street in Wainuiomata has seen a lot of changes in the last sixty years. Before 1954 Queen Street was just a patch of land, women had to push their prams to the Village

Raymond’s Golden Gloves By Rhiannon McConnell An eleven-year-old boxer has beaten a champion in only his second fight at the North Island Golden Gloves this month. Raymond Seumanu tripped up right before landing the winning punch at the Golden Gloves. “I tripped up in the third round and he was coming to rush me but I threw a right hand to his face,” Raymond says. Raymond has been fighting for 18-months and has won both the fights he has competed in so far. He is currently in the under 42kg cadets. His coach Craig Bennett says the have big dreams for the young fighter. “New Zealand is already taking notice.” “We can see a good future for him the way he’s going with his attitude and the way he trains and the way he listens.” Raymond hopes to be famous like his hero Mike Tyson and the way he is going it is not hard to believe it. Not only did he beat the South

Island champion but he also won his fight against the Wellington champion the weekend before. “We think Raymond will be the New Zealand Champ next year. That’s how good we think he is.” Manager of the Wainuiomata Boxing Club Rob Cameron says the club is very excited about the results, especially since the club has only been open 18-months. “It was quite good to go to our first major tournament and come back with a title.” Raymond’s dad and assistant coach Rico Seumanu says he was very proud of his son and the time he puts in training five days a week. “I was just really happy, I can’t even explain it.” Later this year Raymond plans to go to the Wellington Championships but for now he says he is going to train hard to get to number one. Right: 11-year-old Raymond Seumanu has won his first two fights one week apart.

Don and Trish at the starting line of the Dorne Cup cross country course.

Dorne Cup runners record fast times Wainuiomata Harriers’ set out on the annual Dorne Cup crosscountry course at Trentham Memorial Park last Saturday. The typically hard and fast course was no different this year, and with the good weather, allowed a lot of runners to record faster times than last year. The course is typically suited to track runners due to its fast and flat nature. It covers most of Trentham Memorial Park, the riverbank and a bit of bush track. This race is one of the biggest of the season, so it was great to see so many green singlets of Wainuiomata Harriers out running. The children’s section once again showed good form, with a fantastic run from Joel Carman finishing 2nd in the boys under 15 race. They also had four other runners finish with a top ten placing in their respective races, and several newcomers to the event.

Hockey girls are unbeatable

By Rhiannon McConnell Wainuiomata High Schools first hockey team to head to a tournament in ten years has not tasted defeat yet. Team Captain Nevada Blake says the success is fun but also hard work. “We have never played together so it was pretty hard.” The team has won the four games they have played and have scored 39 goals. They are now being considered for promotion to the next grade. Nevada says the team is really happy and supportive of each

other. “We are sort of like a family to be honest.” Team manager Keri Coleman says she is amazed by the girl’s success. “This year there is good community support.” She says despite their winning strike the girls remain humble. “I just think their sportsmanship is wonderful.” It is Coach Whitney Morgan and Assistant Coach Ngaire Blake’s first time coaching at a secondary level. Ngaire Blake says she the team

has been winning with scores as big as 15-0. “They do really well.” She says people have been noticing the success and commenting. Keri Coleman says they are planning to take the girls to a winter tournament in September. It will be the first time the school has had a team at a tournament since 2002. “They are really excited about that.” Keri says the next goal is to start a boy’s team next. “It’s all about building the next team.”

Good game, ‘disappointing loss’ against Tawa Wainuiomata suffered a disappointing loss against Tawa on the weekend but the team put in a strong fight, John Morrissey reports. A bus load of true Wainui Supporters travelled to Lyndhurst Park on Saturday to get vengeance after losing an earlier first round Tawa. This did not happen but we watched our team foot it with the Swindale Shield Winners for most of the game. The first blood was to Wainui with a penalty. It was followed by a good converted

try to Tawa. That was followed by a penalty and then another unconverted try to Tawa before Wainui got into the game with a converted try. This brought the half time score 15-10 to Tawa. Wainui held off some very good attacks from the home side early in the second half. Both teams shared a penalty before Tawa scored a very good team try which was converted 25-13. Wainui were not finished yet and put in some very

hard team work to score a try down the left flank. This was converted, 25-20. Wainui were still in the game to the very end but a wrong choice cost them a penalty to Tawa bringing the full time score to a disappointing 28-20 (no bonus point) loss. The supporters were quite disappointed on the way home but saw enough to be confident for the rest of the Jubilee Cup round. BELOW: Wainuiomata andTawa put down another scrum on Saturday.
