Media stopping crime Using Facebook to keep an eye on Wainui

By Caroline Brown Massey Journalism Student In Wainuiomata a new crime fighting initiative, aiming to stop burglars in their tracks by creating stronger communities, is proving successful. Wainuiomata Neighbourhood Support coordinator Karl Dickson started the campaign in February and launched a Facebook page in March. Information about recent burglaries is sent through the Neighbourhood Support Facebook page to the community, letting them know to be vigilant, Mr Dickson said. “Facebook and education are part of getting the information out there, people can’t ignore the problem and hope it goes away,” he said.

Facebook helping to keep crime rates low People just need to stop and think “that doesn’t look right” and let the police know, Mr Dickson says. “In one case a young male was walking around with a crow bar – the average young person doesn’t do that,” he says. “No one is asking people to be a hero, just by ringing the police they have done the most important part,” he says. “The police would rather get called out for nothing – people should let police comms make the decision.” The Facebook campaign was going really well, Mr Dickson says. Last week [subs: July, 10] he posted about two burglaries on Wimbledon Crescent and Karamu Crescent and got 2,000 views in first day. “The feedback is that people like the info, they’re not hearing it through gossip, they’re just getting the facts, and know what they need to be on the lookout for,” he says. However, he had had some negative responses, he says. “People think that reporting the crimes is making Wainuiomata look bad, but every community has crime,” he says. “We need to realise ‘yeah this happens but there is something we can do’.” It would be completely doable, if the culture changed to communities looking after each other, it would not take long, he says.

Wainuiomata Neighbourhood Support had partnered with the Wainuiomata police for the initiative, Mr Dickson says. He had an office at the Wainuiomata police station but remained separate, he says. Mr Dickson, who has 20 years of experience working with young offenders, says it seemed like a natural fit. For more information visit www.facebook. com/wainuiomataneighbourhoodsupport.

Practical Advice - Know your neighbours – look out for each other - Ask about unusual visitors - The average burglar will take the path of least resistance so lock windows, doors and garages and don’t leave things outside. - Put safety locks on windows - Don’t hide spare keys – burglars know to look under fake rocks and in gumboots so leave it with a neighbour - If you can get in to your house, through louver windows for example, burglars can too - If someone wants to break in they will so it is about reducing the opportunities

Karl Dickson is using Facebook as a tool to keep an eye on the community and lower crime rates.

Wainuiomata actually had the lowest burglary rate in the Hutt Valley, Mr Dickson says. “For 17,500 people we have pretty low crime stats,” he says. Mr Dickson said he chose to live here with his family and would not live here if he did not have complete faith in the community.

Graffiti clean up own responsibility ABC Audit 2012: 6,456 copies weekly Wainuiomata News The largest circulating newspaper in Wainuiomata

Owners of a panel and paint business in Wainuiomata have left Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace wondering why they are upset at Hutt City Council cleaning up graffiti on their private building in Waiu Road. “I am surprised that a local painting business should expect the ratepayers of Wainuiomata to pay to paint out graffiti on their building,” he says. “Under the provisions of the Hutt City Graffiti removal Bill, property owners with

high profile tags are contacted in writing seeking permission to enter private property and paint over the graffiti. “However, the Bill is not an open invitation for private business owners to request council to clean up their buildings. “The primary responsibility is with them and council will only take action on private property in cases where there are numerous complaints of graffiti on high profile buildings.

“We commend Jenner Panel and Paint for painting out the previous tags on their building, but I wonder why they now expect the ratepayer to foot the bill. “An earlier request by the business to clear the tag had been declined, but we decided to assist them on this one occasion’” he says. Mayor Wallace says Council continues to work closely with community, service clubs and individuals to ensure the community remains graffiti free.

Funding available now for groups Hutt City Council has allocated Wainuiomata a fresh allotment of community funding, and will be visiting tomorrow to explain how groups can apply. Community development officer for grants/training Debbie Hunter is inviting charitable trusts and incorporated societies to come for a chat at the public library, to learn about the online funding application system and the funds available. This year an allotment of $8607 is on offer for Wainuiomata under the community engagement fund, available until the end of June

2014. Fourteen Wainuiomata groups benefited from the community engagement fund in the previous financial year. Debbie says groups usually apply for funding for many different uses, including community events, purchasing office equipment, venue hire or promotional material. However she says groups must have specific plan for the funding, be realistic about expectations and make sure their application links in with the Wainuiomata community.

An application in the last financial year’s funding round from Prison Fellowship New Zealand Trust was turned down because it was at the early stages of the project and did not have a clear direction. Debbie advises groups to consult the council funding guide on the webite for provides tips for applications and says she is available to meet to ensure their application is correct. “The Community Board would like to contribute something to each project if feasible. “We want to see that money

used in the community.” She says if groups are not eligible under the community engagement fund, the council has a variety of other funding options available. Debbie will be at Wainuiomata Public Library tomorrow, July 18 between 2pm and 3.30pm. Groups must bring their charitable trust or incorporated society number if they want to register for the fun Anyone unable to attend can contact Debbie on to arrange a meeting for next week.

New face of Eco Fashion Wainuiomata resident Hannah Pasene has just become the surprisingly modest face of New Zealand’s first ever Eco Fashion Week. She will head the runway event of the Eco Fashion Week, a showcase of designer-wear created from second hand clothing, held in Wellington this September 21st. Ms Pasene was asked to front the event by her friend, Wellington designer Denise Anglesey - who masterminded the Eco Week event – despite having never modeled before. She says it was “an honour and a privilege” to be involved in the event. “I think Denise is amazing. She’s just somebody normal, but she’s stepped out and taken hold of her dream and made it a reality.” While eco clothing is not her regular day-time wear because of her work uniform, she is a fan of the

initiative, Ms Pasene says. “I don’t think the best [clothing] is always something new. “Second hand clothing can be made up into something fantastic.” She believes the ecofashion trend could really take off in New Zealand. “It’s really opened my eyes up to what we can do as New Zealanders. “I think it’s got awesome potential to keep going further.” The eco fashion runway event will showcase a number of New Zealand designers, all of whom work with recycled and recyclable materials and second hand garments to create streetwearable clothes. It is the first national event of its kind to run in New Zealand, although similar events have been popular overseas. For more information go to www.nzecofashionweek. com, or for event tickets to

Local sport cancelled due to weather Many local sports games were cancelled on the weekend in Wainuiomata because of the bad weather conditions. It is the second time in the last month that stormy weather has adversely affected sports in the Valley. Also the Wainuiomata High School cross-country event was cancelled last Thursday after its second postponement date was rained off.

Kiwi bird to be released into forest The Rimutaka Forest Trust is due to release another brown kiwi into the park reserve this July 27th. The kiwi, which was originally to be released on the 20th, was sponsored by Trust Energy and is yet to be given a name.

A Victoria Univesity legal researcher has found a hole in the Hutt City Council’s ticketing system. Al O’Connor says that thousands of tickets issued by council parking wardens were in fact unlawful and would have to be refunded. His claim is based on Land Transportation regulation that states a bylaw must be passed in order to give parking tickets for timerestricted areas. The council have responded that they have sought legal advice and can continue to issue tickets but will look at passing a bylaw.

Parking in the the Lower Hutt central business district now has a flat rate. A flat rate of $1.50 has replaced the parking costs of $2 for the first hour and $3 for the second hour.

Pencarrow Lions receive funding help By Caroline Brown and Adam Poulopoulos, Massey Journalism Students The Wainuiomata Community Patrol have received a funding boost and show of support from the Pencarrow Lions. A donation of $200 worth of petrol vouchers was presented to the Community Patrol at the Pencarrow Lions meeting last week. The presentation was made by the Lions’ new president, Laura O’Dell, who replaced Jenny Taylor last month. Club Treasurer Julie Beck says the Patrol’s inf luence in the community cannot be underestimated.

“Everyone has suggestions about who to give the money to, and the Community Patrol is for all of us. “It can be quite scary around the place but they are out there at night patrolling the streets for us.” Mrs Beck says the Lions believed petrol vouchers would be more useful to the community patrol than just money. Mrs Beck says the presentation went really well and the Lions were given a certificate of gratitude in return. “They were very appreciative”. The show of support continued, when, at the end of the

Photography course for teens A week-long photography course for local Scouts and Guides just kicked off at Wainuiomata’s Brookfield camp ground on Sunday. The course, for 12 to 18 year olds, will take students on a journey from basic camera use such as aiming and pointing to learning about night photography, light and composition use and camera computer programmes. Course organiser Kevin Randles says that the students have always proved quick to pick up even the more complicated camera skills. “They have no preconceived ideas and are open to learning. “We see some amazing images produced from these young people in just a week.” Many past students had gone on to secondary and even tertiary study in photography, and the course itself was immensely popular, Mr Randles says. “We have youth travelling from all over New Zealand. “Last year we had a Scout from Australia.” During this week students will also meet local photographers from places such as Te Papa and the NZ police to hear what professional photography jobs involve. At the end of the week the students’ work will be accumulated into portfolios for them to exhibit. Run by the National Scout Photography School, the course was established in 2006 by Te Papa photographer Norm Heke and New Zealand Air Force photographic instructor Kevin Randles.

meeting, the Community Patrol asked for volunteers one of the ladies from the Lions put her hand up, Mrs Beck says. “She’s going along on a patrol with them one night to see what it’s like and might volunteer,” she says. Community Patrol patron and administrator Barry Renshaw is delighted with the vouchers. “I th in k it’s a ver y good gesture. “The Pencarrow Lions have helped us in the past and they’re a great benefit to Wainui.” The Lions donate to several organisations, and try and keep the money in the valley as Karyn Williams, Jennie Taylor and Tracy Mansfield. much as possible.

Community group give helping hand with graffiti By Caroline Brown Massey Journalism Student A group of good Samaritans are bringing their good work to Wainuiomata this weekend. The Take My Hand community group is coming to Wainuiomata to paint over graffiti. The group was started by Stokes Valley youth group Bless ‘Em Youth, after being inspired by others random acts of kindness. Take My Hand organiser Ivy Vena says they started a Facebook page in June to find out from the community how they could help. “We invited friends and family and people in the community for suggestions on how they could help others,” she says. “Someone suggested painting over graffiti in the community.” The next step was finding areas that needed painting, so they appealed to the community again, Mrs Vena says. “It’s great being interactive with the community,” she says.

A resident asked them to come to Wainuiomata. “We’re happy to go anywhere and we encourage the community to make suggestions.” They had already done lots of work painting graffiti in Stokes Valley and the groups were excited to help out in Wainuiomata too. The Hutt City Council had

helped out with resources. “We are working with the Wainuiomata Community Board who will be supplying our resources for the Graffiti clean up this Saturday,” Mrs Vena says. The clean up kicks off at 10am, with the group working on a walkway near Wainuiomata Rd and Fraser St.

New manager excited with challenge By Rhiannon McConnell Wainuiomata Professionals has a new manager and he plans to bring lots of life to the Valley. Luke Jansen says he is excited about being involved with the Wainuiomata property market. “There are good buyers out there making some great decisions at the moment.” “Throughout the region it’s an improving market.” Luke spent 19 years at Harcourts in Wellington

before moving to join the Professionals team a few weeks ago. “It was time to grab a new challenge.” He says it is a brilliant change. “There is a good bunch of people in this office.” The married father of three says while this is his first time working in Wainuiomata, he does have previous experience with the area. “I have traveled back and forwards through Wainui over the years.”

Community Patrol raffle results The Wainuiomata Community Patrol held a very successful raffle at the market two weeks ago. Patrol member Tracey Mansfield says they sold 200 tickets. “It exceeded our expectations.” It was the first time the group had run a table at the market. “We will definitely do it again.” The winning ticket was bought by Tui Funaki. People and places that donated are: ANZ Bank; Bill Oliver; Barry & Nicky Renshaw; Dukes Dairy;Domino’s; Expressions Hair & Beauty; Eleanor Mitchell; Export Meats; Eddies Bar; George & Anne Wright; Graham Walker; Glendale Mlik Bar Joes Cook; Ken & Cynthia Renanta; McDonalds; Nischay Liquor; The Warehouse; Ziggy’s Dairy.

“I am now looking at it from a different perspective.” Luke says he is aiming to bring confidence in the Wainuiomata market and its future. “I might even bring some auctions to the Valley.” Prior to entering real estate Luke was involved in broadcasting and worked for ZM and More FM. He says he decided to go into real estate after having a really good experience buying his first home. “The agent inspired me.”

Wainui’s appeal to help the refuge By Aaron Meredith, Whitireia Journalism Student Women’s Refuge is hoping Wainuiomata shows its usual generosity when local school children are rattling collecting buckets this week. The young collectors will be in the mall, said Lizzie Raukawa, who works for Kokiri Health and Social Services. “They will be in their uniforms so they can represent their own school,” says Lizzie. Kokiri represents Women’s Refuge in Wainuiomata, including helping to organise the annual fundraising drives. Lizzie says the fundraiser was well supported by Wainuiomata. “I remember last year, where some people had full buckets of money,” she said. Lizzie says people who want to

Scholarships for Wainui students

donate can do so through the website, if they cannot make it to the mall. The Women’s Refuge website says about 50-60% of its work is funded by the government, while the rest is provided through fundraising drives like the annual appeal. The refuge has been providing support since 1973 to women and children involved in domestic violence problems. The website says a study has shown between 33 and 39% of New Zealand women have experienced some sort of domestic violence in their lifetime. Support is organized through many community hubs such as Kokiri at Wainuiomata Community Centre. Women’s Refuge can be reached on 0800 733 843.

By Shannon Sweetman Massey Journalism Student Three Wainuiomata Intermediate students just won themselves overall academic excellence scholarships for the local Wainuiomata High School next year. The Year 8 students, Anthony Nelson, Michela Marris and Hannah Scrimshaw each won $300 as a credit to be used towards school activities and the purchase of uniforms when they begin at Wainuiomata High next year. To qualify for the highly competitive scholarships, the students had to sit exams for maths, science and English, achieving excellent scores in each. Ngawari Jacobs, from Pukeatua Primary School, also won a $300 scholarship for Te Reo Maori Language Excellence.

Wainui Pool hours should be longer

Overloading plugs

Dear Ed, Many years ago the good people of Wainui did a huge fundraising effort and had the Wainui pool built and what a wonderful facility. I use it for the period it’s open for, therin lies the problem, it’s closed 9 months of the year. How about Lotto or people power to again fundraise and have a roof or other solution to enable the pool

Dear Ed, I was concerned reading the story about the danger of overloading plugs in last week’s paper. I am glad this was pointed out as I often overload my plugs and did not realise the danger involved. From now on I will be keeping a closer eye on this to avoid any nasty surprises. yours Enlighten

Tough Guy hopes to be toughest By Shannon Sweetman Ritchie Unsworth is amped up for his second attempt at winning this year’s Tough Guy and Gal challenge in Wainuiomata on Saturday, against a sold-out event with more than 800 competitors. The local Wainui resident, whose day job is at a truck and trailers service yard, just completed the same event in Palmerston North, placing 37th overall. “It’s a really great, social thing to do. “I can guarantee you, if someone does it the first time, they’ll be back to do it again,” Mr Unsworth says. This is his fifth time competing in the event overall and he’s optimistic about his chances of taking out the top title this time around. “You’re always aiming to win. “I’ve done better so far this year than all the other times I’ve competed,” Mr

By Colleen Hira The Coach Road Church is one of the oldest in the Wellington region and has a rich history. The church was first opened on 6 February 1866. Until recently it was always thought that the Church was opened in 1863 and a 150th Jubilee was to be held in November this year. In fact the Church

Unsworth says. To win the title of toughest guy or gal, competitors must complete either a 12km or a 6km course which takes them through mud pits and water trails, bush, brambles and hill climbs. Wellington’s event is based in the 240 hectare area of the Wainui Boys’ Brigade Camp. The top three placing males and females in the 6km and 12km runs will each receive medals, while first-placers will also receive a free pair of Brocks shoes. There are also spot prizes and a bestdressed prize for those competing on the day. This is the 11th year that the competition has run, and the second year it has run in Wellington.

is only 146 years old and the 150th Jubilee will now be held in February 2016. By the early 1950’s and because of a large growth in population in the valley, talk turned to relocating the Church to a more central site, closer to the hub of the Wainuiomata township. However it was eventually decided to build a new

church. Over the years the old church building bore the brunt of weather and lack of maintenance and by the millennium, it was in a very poor state of repair. The church fell into disuse for a number of years before being used as clubrooms for the Arts Society. Many other changes have

occurred over the years to the church including it being placed on the historic buildings listing. On June 11, 2006 the Wainuiomata Pioneer Church Preservation Society was

formed with the intention of taking over the care and restoration of the Church and Churchyard. After a slow start, in July 2012 the Society embarked on the internal restoration of the

Football team undefeated By Liam Hyslop Massey Journalism Student The Wainuiomata High School girls’ football team are undefeated and on track for a rare promotion. Five wins from five in Hutt Valley division two, with 26 goals scored and only two against, and the team is rolling towards a spot in division one, an achievement which has not been reached for at least five years. Captain Amalia Lipidis says the key to this year’s success is great teamwork and a winning mentality. “Because we have won so much we just want to keep on winning. The team is built around a strong core group of year 13s, she says. Their coach, Scotty Murphy, is also a major reason for their unbeaten run, she says. “He wants the best for us and you can tell that in a coach.

Freewheel bike track needs work By Shannon Sweetman Massey Journalism Student Winter means a mountain of new work for the Wainuiomata Trail Project volunteers, who must weather-proof their Freewheel bike track by hand. Currently the wet weather has been turning the tracks into “a bit of a mud bath”, volunteer Martin Gribble says. “It makes for interesting riding, but the tracks just aren’t sustainable in the long term if people are riding on them in the wet.” By hand, the work will take at least two months to complete, Mr Gribble says. “It would be faster with machines, but we want to keep a natural feel to the place.” The track will first have to be cleared with tools to remove rocks and roots from the path, and then lined with compacted aggregate. Once this is done, work will begin on completing the final building stage of the track, creating a two kilometre downhill path that will connect the current path to Wainui Park. Freewheel had only just recovered from damage caused by last months storm before the weather-proofing had begun, Mr Gribble says. “We had a huge amount of debris on the tracks, and a few trees pushed up. “A lot of people stepped up and sacrificed their time to clear it, which was fantastic.” The track itself has already taken almost a year and a half to build thus far.

Sports results wanted Send us an email at with any results and pictures of sporting events. or any games you want us to cover.


“He is passionate about the game and also looks after us.” When the Wainuiomata News visited the team it was the last day of school but that did not stop Scotty putting them through a typically hard training session. “I’m tough on them but they soak it up,” he says. “They’ve been unbelievable, they have been so dedicated. The girls reserve team is also doing well in Hutt Valley division three, currently lying third, two points behind the leaders. In a boom year for Wainuiomata High School football the boys have made a strong start as well, with the senior team sitting top of the Wellington senior championship division seven and the juniors fifth in the Wellington junior championship division two.

Rylee growing into a sporting sensation By Shannon Sweetman Massey Journalism Student Wa i nu iom a t a P r i m a r y School student Rylee Watt’s goal for 2014 is to run in the inter-regional cross country championships. Rylee ran to an amazing third-place in the Year 4 girls race at the regional cross country championships held last Tuesday at Rathkeale College.

The top three runners in each year level from Year 5 onwards go on to compete in the inter-regional competition, meaning if Rylee achieves the same success next year she would be in line to compete. She had previously won her event in the inter-school cross country championships to qualify for the regionals. As well as her cross country running, Rylee plays T-ball

and does swimming, soccer and athletics with her older sister Jorja Watt. Rylee is also Wellington’s cur rent champion in the 50metre and 200m events, and was a representative for Hutt Valley in the under-9s T-ball regional championships this year, mother Lauren Parker says. “She’s a very busy girl!We’re really proud.”

Jorja, who ran in the interregionals last year, placed 22nd in her Year 6 race at Tuesday’s regionals, while the girls’ fellow student Mckenzie Winter was 53rd in the Year 4 race. Wainuiomata Primary’s Deputy Principal Allison Burden said the school was very proud of the girls. “[Rylee] is quite a talented athlete. All three of them are.”

From crash to super lap times

Performance Camp Conan Burt particpating in the U15 and U17 Performance Camp held on Saturday at Upper Hutt. The event is an endurance series of short sprints. Conan finished in the last three to complete this test. The camp was run by Wellington Rugby League in conjunction with NZ Rugby League. The camp includes a selection of U15 and U 17 rep teams. Roving photographer Daryl New was there.

By Aaron Meredith, Whitireia Journalism Student A “near-death” motorbike crash has not stopped Shane Richardson from racing motorbikes. A stuck throttle sent the Wainuiomata 18-year-old careening into a fence post last year on his road bike. Shane’s father Kerry described the crash as a near death experience, but it has not stopped him getting back on a bike and setting promising lap times around Manfield Raceway. After a year off recovering, he has taken up track road racing rather than the motocross racing he started as a four-year-old. He had some success in motocross, including placing highly in his grade at the Kapi-Mana Clubs Champs in 2011. “It’s a new challenge,” says Shane, who races a Honda CVR 600. “I’m keeping up with the guys who have been racing on the track for years,” says Shane, who first hopped on a bike when he was two.

He said he had been riding high one minute nine-second lap times a round Manfield Raceway, and qualifying well for every race he has entered. He is planning to race in this year’s annual Whanganui Cemetery circuit race, a big step up from where he is at now. “I have been racing mainly club. It is a good place to learn.” Shane is getting to as many races to get as much practice in. He is getting sponsored by local businesses including Wainuiomata Joiner y, which is helping with the cost of travel and new parts. His father Kerry says cost was the main thing that stops young riders going to track days. “Travel also is a problem. Manfield is the closest track to Wellington, and that’s in Fielding,” said Kerry. Both say track days and club racing meets are a better way to ride fast than on the road.

Wainui still in hunt for semi final place By John Morrissey After a very good display of wet weather rugby against Oriental Rongatai at the Polo grounds on Saturday the Wainuiomata Premiers are still in the hunt for a semi final place. The game started with good conditions then worsened as the day went on. Wainui were having the best of the play for most of the first half on attack most of the time. A very quickly taken try was scored by Jason Love, then a penalty try which was

more than warrented, which was converted plus a penalty, to a penalty to Ories in one of their few visits into Wainui’s half. Half time 15-3. The second half was a much closer fought contest with both teams attacking and counter attacking. Ories scored two good tries - one converted to a penalty to John Monu. Even though Ories tried and tried they didn’t overtake Wainui because of their excellent

defence. A lot of this Wainui team would do justice to the Wellington Lions, where they could show you how good they are playing on top of the ground. Final Score 18-12. What has to Happen for Wainui to make the semis? Old Boys University must beat Ories, Petone must beat Marist St Pats and Wainui must beat Poneke with a bonus point. Thats not hard is it?

Young students qualify for regionals Two Fernlea students ran their hearts out last Tuesday after qualifying last month to represent Hutt Valley at the Regional Cross Country Championships. The two boys, Zac McMurchie and Waaku Poutu, finished well near the front of the pack in both their races, with Waaku placing 29th, after running the almost 2000 metre course at the Rathkeale College sports grounds. “Both Zac and Waaku did really well. “It was quite an experience for them to go from a small

school event to one of this size,” Fernlea principal Walter Gordon says. To qualify for the race, Zac and Waaku had to place amongst the top ten fastest times at Wellington’s interschool event held at the end of June. Zac, Year 5, had to complete a race of more that 1600 metres, while Waaka, Year 4, ran a race of more than 1000 metres, at the inter-school event. The next event for the school will be the Wellington netball tournament, held on the 6-7th of August.
