Konini Primary School and Arakura School are among 62 low-decile schools that have been waiting for assistance from the KidsCan programmes. CEO and founder of KidsCan Julie Chapman says with the help of Meridian they will offer

Their support allows us to continue to combat child poverty and make a real difference to thousands of Kiwi children.” The charity is steadfast in its

commitment to give every kiwi kid the chance to succeed by being well clothed and fed and therefore more engaged in their education. Meridian chief executive Mark Binns says they are very proud to be supporting the charity. “It’s our way of giving back to the community and we encourage others to join us in

Funds granted for field

By Rhiannon McConnell The long battle for funding for William Jones Park was won last week when the Hutt City Council agreed to put $40,000 into fixing drainage problems on the field. Ex Rugby Club president John Morrissey has been fighting for funding for four years. “They have never ever fixed it up. They have been putting bandaids on. “Bandaids dont last after a while.” The club offered to put up $20,000 but they now suspect it will cost less to fix. “It gives us a chance for the club to go forward and not just stagnate.” The main problem reported was the ground was saturated with water and would not drain through the current soil. The club only gets one game a week, if they are lucky, because the grounds turn to mud. “We cant even get the main game let alone the others.” He says kids miss out on playing. “We are having to take the games off here for two weeks to play a premiere game.” Morrissey hopes the new drainage will help take the club back to its glory days and allow for three games on a Saturday. “Ten years ago people use to love coming and playing on this field.”

inbriefnews Supercity feedback highlights concerns

John Morrissey and Campbell Barry have worked hard to recieve the funding for William Jones Park.

Morrissey says transfering games away from the field is costing the club one to three thousand dollars every game. “They just don’t come back here and utilise our clubrooms and thats real bad.” He says kids are playing for Hutt teams instead of Wainuiomata teams because of the condition of the field. “We want good grounds for them to play on.” The funding was granted after a submission to the council’s draft annual plan. Wainuiomata Community Board member Campbell

Barry says they only decided to do it three days before the cut off date. “To have your ground as just a mudpit is just a big issue.” Barry grew up around rugby and says its important to him that the grounds are fixed. “Its been in my life since I was four.” He says it is impossible to have a good game on it in the present state. “You can’t play free flowing rugby because you are just stuck.” He says teams will be happy to have ground they can run on.

The origanl estimate to fix the grounds was 60-89 thousand dollars but the new estimate is around $40,000. John Morrissey has even bigger plans for the club. He says they want to lift the clubrooms and put changing rooms underneath. The current plan is to have the drainage work done around December or January when the weather is better. Morrissey says they are very appreciative for the funding. “We are very happy the council has come to the party.”

Cupcakes raise money By Rhiannon McConnell Wainuiomata residents rasied double what was expected in a cupcake judging contest run by the Warehouse last Thursday. The public paid one dollar to taste and judge a cupcake in the fundraiser for Wellington Hospital Children’s ward. Service Team Leader Paige Beattie says their expecations were blown away. They expected to raise $100 but the community

gave $336.90 towards the fundrasior. “We had an awesome amount of support from the community.” Seventeen batches of cupcakes were baked by the Warehouse team. “We have had excellent support from the team.” The event was part of a fundraising effort by the Warehouse to raise $7500 for Wellington Hospital Children’s ward by the end of July. “We just wanted to see if we could get the com-

munity to come in and help us.” They are also running a guess the number of Jellybeans in the Jar contest, a dance off and a sausage sizzle. “It’s something fun for them to do.” The winner of the best looking was the vanilla cupcakes with meringue icing decorated like a clown. The winner of best tasting was the small red velvet cupcakes.

Feedback to the Wellington supercity proposal highlights concerns often centred on the loss of local democracy and restricted public access to decision makers. Hutt City Council Chief Executive Tony Stallinger says the main financial concerns they can see are region wide rate increases are forecast to be 15 per cent higher than in the Hutt and region wide net debt is forecast to soar over $1,000 million. “It would be unfair for Hutt City ratepayers to foot the bill for the spending plans in other areas of the city. This could happen if a supercity is implemented in Wellington.”

Hutt Residents’ voices ignored The voice of Lower Hutt residents has been ignored by Greater Wellington Regional Council, says Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace. “A large majority of our people do not want a super city and our current surveys are reinforcing that view.” The Greater Wellington Council opted to support a two-tier Supercity model last Tuesday. The Mayor says the proposed model has already been rejected by the councils and their communities in Masterton, Carterton, South Wairarapa, Kapiti, Upper Hutt and Hutt City. He says the Hutt City’s decision will be based on the views of the people. “We will continue to fight to ensure the voice of Lower Hutt is heard in this discussion on local government reform,” says Mayor Wallace.

Burning Embers release first EP By Rhiannon McConnell Wainuiomata rock band Burning Embers is set to release their first EP in the six years the band has existed. Lead singer Robert Morgon says they have been prolonging the release because they wanted it to be perfect. “We felt it was time we could put this together.” Robert says he has written around 550 songs in his time. The five songs they have chosen for their EP ‘Sea of Flames’ have meaning behind them. “The songs are about the journeys I’ve had. The highs and lows and tribulations.” The band has had 24

members in its time but its current members are guitar and back-up vocals Keepa Kempton, lead Guitar Jay Russell, drummer Mason Warren, bass player Joe Standeven and lead singer Robert Morgon. Keepa Kempton has recently started radio station Ifinity in Wainuiomata and says they will be using the station to promote the band. He says the band has been working hard in the months leading up to the release. “We have been fundraising and selling sausages for the EP.” Robert Morgon says they are planning a trip to Australia and then Europe. “Our fan base is in Amer-

ica and Europe.” He says New Zealanders are harder to get into rock music. “Rock doesn’t really go off here.” The band already have a music video released called Open Road. Robert says they are going to endorse and promote the EP by being out in the street and letting people know. “We are going to be as proactive as possible.” The EP Sea of Flames will have a release party this Saturday June 22, 7pm at Wellington Water Ski Club, 1 Esplanade, Petone. Tickets are $30 pre-sale or $35 at the door.

Then and Now - Village Shops The Homedale Village Shops were once the centre for shopping in Wainuiomata. The old creamery (seen on the left of the 1943 picture) is still incorporated into the Wonderland building today. After the war the Village Shops developed more and even had a jewellery store at one stage. In 1959 an article in the local paper celebrated new shops opening and was hopeful footpaths would be put in as a result. Photo with permission of the Historical Society.

Youth prosecution low in Wellington Wellington’s youth prosecution decision rates are persistently lower than the national rate says Justspeak. In 2012, 20% of 10-16-yearolds apprehended for a resolved crime were prosecuted in Wellington. This compares with a national rate of 23%. In the 19 years studied, Wellington had a rate lower than the national average in all but one year. It is believed to be because of the higher rates of alternative action, such as Youth Aid and official warnings, in Wellington. When a young person is apprehended for an offence, Police can decide on a range of resolutions for the offender, including an official warning, Youth Aid, a Family Group

Conference, or prosecution. “There is growing acknowledgement that diver ting young people away from the courts and prison system is important to reducing crime,” says JustSpeak spokesperson Danielle Kelly. Over the past 20 years Auckland and Southern have persistently had prosecution rates tending above the national average. Waikato, Tasman, Central and Wellington have consistently had prosecution rates persistently tending below the national average. JustSpeak is a network of young people speaking to, and speaking up for a new generation of thinkers who want change in our criminal justice system.

Burger Fuel open again after make-over Burger Fuel Lower Hutt has just re-opened its doors after a complete store make-over, built fresh to deliver the freshest burgers in town and local franchisee, Paul Longley, couldn’t be more pleased with the new store design. He comments, “we are pleased to have achieved our goal in making this store more comfortable and practical for our customers, with some great new features designed to

lighten, brighten and bring a lot of life back into our store – it looks great.” The Burger Fuel store is positioned nicely in the heart of Lower Hutt and has now been fitted and kitted out with the latest in Burger Fuel design, portraying the Burger Fuel “Engineered Organic” design ethos nicely by incorporating natural wood features and mechanical light fittings. The most noticeable change

in store is the introduction of dining level tables, including a large communal table, which helps to cater to larger groups and young families. Surrounding these are Burger Fuel’s very own 100% recycled and recyclable “Enviro-Mental Chairs”, designed for comfort and portability, something that the older barstools didn’t offer.

SPORT

BMX riders train for World Champs Liam Hyslop Around 20 BMX riders braved the wintery blast on Sunday for a chance to train for next month’s World Championships at the Wainuiomata BMX track. Riders from Wainuiomata, Upper Hutt, Kapiti and Hawkes Bay were put through their paces by Dave Kidd, a BM coach from Kapiti. It was the second day of a two day training camp, with Kapiti hosting the first day on Saturday. Kidd says the weekend was a good chance to develop the mental focus, especially of the juniors, that will be required when they enter

the World Championship environment. “For many of them they would never have competed against other countries at an event like this so we need to prepare them for what to expect. “We are also looking at developing some of their technique as well.” Hunter Grindlay, who will compete in the 11-12-yearold cruiser division at the Worlds, was covered in mud by the end of the day but says it was a good, hard training despite the weather. The Wainuiomata BMX Club will have 18 competitors at the Worlds, spread across both junior and senior

levels and a number of different classes. Club president Jamie Hargraves says club memberships had averaged out over the last few years, following the boom that came after BMX debuted at the Olympics in 2008. He says the club is still in a very good place and the track held up well in the wet conditions. The Wainuiomata riders will take on the world at the BMX World Championships starting on July 24. It will be held at Vector Arena in Auckland, meaning there will be no repeat of the conditions like those on Sunday.

Wainuiomata riders Glenn Grindly, Hayden Wallis, Tony Pattison and Ross Bailey.

Wainui loses to Hutt Old Boys Marist By John Morrissey The game between Wainui and Hutt Old Boys Marist was the game of the Jubilee Cup round so far, after going down by eight points to Tawa last week to go down by four points to HOBM this week is very hard to take. Wainui may have taken a bit too long to get into stride but came back very well to trail by only three points at half time 10-7. The second half was as exciting as the first with HOBM getting

a bit of a jump on Wainui again only to see Wainui finishing real fast at the end to come within a try of winning the game. Full Time 23-19. Some bad handling on attack and some decisions by officials which could have gone either way cost Wainui the game in the end. Jason Love in his 100 premier game for Wainui tried very hard as did all of the Wainui team. To name a few: Shahn Eru, Genisis Mamea, Justin Va’a, Marvin Karawana, Frae Wilson.

Chairperson of the Wainuiomata Sportsville Board Rawiri Evans says this is the first major step towards action. “We have been getting our feet under the table and getting organised. “It’s actually looking at what we need for our community.”

He says that the strategy is “a massive step in the right direction for our sports and recreation groups in the valley, providing a vision, and drive to achieve some amazing results.” The draft plan comes after much consultation. “The community has heavily bought into this process, putting in their own thoughts and ideas about what they want to see,” says Rawiri.
