By Rhiannon McConnell Coast Road residents are campaigning to get cellphone reception down the coast after a winter of storms highlighting the need for cellphone coverage in disasters. The rural ratepayers association chairman Shane Edwards says they have been working to get coverage for the past four months. “We are trying to make things happen.” Continued page 2

Cellphone coverage for Coast Road Continued from page 1 Shane says it is the terrain that makes it hard to put reliable coverage down Coast Road, however the popular Rimutaka Forest Park and recent winter storms means it is very important. “It would be a really great thing to have down there.” Shane says he often has people, locked out of the forest park, ask to use their phone because of the lack of coverage. “Our phone bill definitely does

The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation needs a new coordinator for the Wainuiomata area for their annual street appeal. Last year’s coordinator Tamara Mauriohooho says it is a very rewarding position to be in. “You get joy out of it, and happiness. “It’s actually a lot of fun.” Tamara says she got involved because her mother-in-law had cancer and helped with the appeals. “It was a way we could work together.” Tamara’s daughter Saela also helps, making three generations working together. “I feel honoured to be in a position where I get to meet so many people affected by Breast Cancer.” Tamara had to give up coordinating the Wainuiomata area this year because she already has her plate full with the Hutt Valley and Petone area. “I had to downsize so I can cover all the areas I need to.” She has spent two years in Wainuiomata and the Hutt Valley region and started off being a collector. “I am quite committed to it. “ The area coordinator manages a

ICT helps partner work By Rhiannon McConnell Twenty-four students at Konini Primary School are getting the chance to learn about technology and work with laptops as part of a trial conducted two days a week. Konini Primary School ICT (Information Communication Technologies) teacher Paul Smith says it runs two days a week with the hope of going full time next year. “These kids are growing up in a very digital world. “We are just encouraging that and providing them with the skills we think they will

need.” The school bought 24 laptops at the beginning of this term. “It’s given us a lot more opportunity to do shared work.” Twenty-four students spend Thursdays and Fridays doing their work on the computers which cover all subjects from writing to maths. The computers have a one to one ratio. The school had limited windows based machines before buying the laptops. Temara Mohr, 10, says she loves learning on the chrome books.

inbriefnews First lady from Wainuiomata Australia’s new first lady is Wainuiomata born and breed. Liberal Party Leader Tony Abbott was voted in as Australia’s Primeministerlast week and his wife grew up in Wainuiomata. Margaret Aitken, now known as Margie Abbott, attended Fernlie Primary School and Wainuiomata High School.

Best efforts made for Health Centre Janeia Houghton and Temara Mohr with teacher Paul Smith.

“I’ve never been on one before so it’s helping me with a lot of stuff.” Te m a r a’s b u d d y Ja n e i a Houghton,9, says the computers are a pretty cool way to learn.

“I love doing maths and all the writing we get to do.” The idea for the chrome books learning was suggested by the Deputy Principal Kim Lupo and Principal Neil Sainsbury.

Council not fixing cracks in footpath A Wainuiomata home owner has been told by the council he needs to fix cracks in the concrete outside one of his properties that he believes were caused by substandard contractors rather than the relocation of a house. Joiner Stephen Mcivor says his father received a letter from the council telling him he needs to fix the concrete outside his path where cracks have become evident. “The council is claiming we did this when we put the house here.” The problem stems to the relocation of a house onto the Wainuiomata Road property by Stephen and his father just before Christmas. They have a sub clause in their relocation contract that says if they cause any damage they must fix it. However Stephen says when they moved the house, it did not sit on the path concrete. The truck lifted it over the footpath and straight onto the grass. He also says the cracks only appeared in January/February this year.

“It’s just getting worse and worse.” Steven says he has noticed damage down the road as well and says this is proof it is from substandard work done by the footpath contractors rather than his house. “Who do you go to when you see contractors doing substandard work for the Council?” Stephen says he thinks they will end up having to repair the concrete despite believing they are not at fault. However he says even if he replaces the one piece of concrete, there are cracks right down the road. “It’s not just here. It’s right the way down the road.” Stephen and his father think the damage could have been made worse by the recent earthquakes. He says the work is not good enough and will cost him money through replacing the concrete and through rates. “Either way we are going to pay for it.”

The Hutt City Council have made it clear they will do their best to keep the Petone Hutt Union and Community Health Service open. The discussion took place at a meeting last night that was well-attended by people across the region. Mayor Ray Wallace says they have set up a working group to try and find a solution to keep the centre open. “It was a good outcome.” The health centre caters to a lot of low-income families who would were concerned about the travel to Pomare Union Health Service if the local one closed. “For most of them that’s too much,” the Mayor says.

Its showtime at Wainuiomata High School Wainuiomata High School is set to host its first Showtime event. Teacher in charge Simon Croft says the event aims to show the community what the schools in Wainuiomata have to offer. "Too often schools are judged not by the success of the many but the transgressions of the few." They are also aiming to get the schools to see the resources that the community can offer. The show will feature upcycling, a spelling bee, performances and tables from people in the community. There will also be youth awards.

Friends Who Care have to sell

Chairperson Margaret Love and board member Joe Krummenacher

By Rhiannon McConnell After losing funding in June last year, Friends Who Care are facing having to sell their building to provide an income to move forward. Chairperson Margaret Love says at this stage they are exploring options to keep the service running, and one of those options is the sale of their Wainuiomata property. “We don’t have the money to upgrade [the building].” They lost funding last June after the board decided not to renegotiate their contract. “Everyone is devastated, change is never easy.” However Margaret says they have still been providing support to service users. “We still continue to give support to people.”

Friends Who Care provided a range of therapeutic activities and support for people with experience of mental illness or addictions. With the loss of their funding, they are facing having no income to move forward. “No income means basically, no services. “Something has to be done.” The property at 6 Rowe Parade was gifted to the Wainuiomata Community almost 40 years ago but if sold it would allow Friends Who Care to continue running. “We don’t want to let it go but in reality we have to rethink how we function. “Selling is an option which would mean for us, money in the bank, money to set up a mobile service, money to purchase a van and money to engage staff.”

Then they could also apply for funding, which requires an income. Margaret says it is important the service keeps running because it is a place to gather were people can do meaningful activities and are not judged. “If we want to be part of the antistigma campaign and the education of the community then we need to stay.” She says they need the support of Wainuiomata to be able to stay open. “If the community wants to see this place recover, we need the community to back it.” Board member Joe Krummenacher says Friends Who Care has always provided a wonderful service for people all around Wellington. “People came as far as Upper Hutt and Wellington when it was in its prime.”

Confidence for the guys By Rhiannon McConnell No one would have think a fitness and study group that requires students to be up before dawn would become a popular place for boys to get to know each other and gain confidence but the Futures Programme is doing just that. Co-organiser Heston Patea says the Futures Programme encourages young men to be fit and study. Heston picks the boys up around 4:45am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. “These kids are getting up just to come to this thing. “There’s a huge commitment from them.” The futures programme has been running for seven years and they start at start at 6am Bill Sharp helped start the group in 2007 after concerns for the high level of truancy in Wainuiomata. “They decided to do something about it,” Heston says.


The boys start with a fitness programme then shower and have breakfast before heading to the library to get some study in before school. Heston started working in the Futures Programme in November 2007. “I know it’s challenging at times but I just love it. “Just seeing those young boys grow.” He says they notice a big change in attitude, confidence and doing well at school. “That’s a huge reward for us.” But this is not a programme that is Heston Patea says he doesn’t mind getting up at 4:45am because he loves working with youth. promoted and advertised, it travels by word-of-mouth. “They [the boys] go out and tell “If they really want to come - they can come.” “I try and help them out as much as I can and their mates.” He says the group is a good way for year nine support them.” There are 22 in the core group but students to make the transition into college easier. Heston says he loves helping young people but it is one week they had 40 boys turn up. “They open up a bit more and become more his family who support him in it. “That was just amazing.” confident in themselves.” “I am very grateful I have a wife who allows me Heston says anyone is welcome The Ta Maiti Whangai youth worker says his day to do this.” in the group. job also means he gets to work with the guys.

Kathryn McMillan Plunket Nurse What is your favourite food?

Your favoured holiday destination?

Who would you invite to dinner?

I’m pretty fickle, it can change from day to day. Chocolate s probably my biggest weakness!

I was lucky enough to go to Rarotonga a few years ago. It’s the most beautiful place ever!

I would be cheeky and invite Jamie Oliver... of course he would have to cook!

What makes you smile?

What’s your favourite music?

Lots of things! My children, my husband, my friends, my community. I’m pretty easily pleased. I love a good laugh. I’ve found its one of the best forms of medicine and helps make all the hard things in life a little easier.

What’s your pet hate? Something I see nearly every day: lack of car seats or correct car seats for our lovely children!

What’s next on your wish list? Study at the moment. Post graduate papers on Well Child/ Tamariki Ora at Whitiera. Balancing work, children, family life and study - busy busy busy!

I love everything! I was brought up on Bob Marley and Kenny Rogers. My kids often complain that I have the music up too loud and its usually songs that are out now on the radio.

A saying you like to live by?

What is one thing Wainuiomata News readers would be surprised to know about you?

“Wants versus Needs”. Ask my sister and kids and they will tell you that is what I say when they pipe up “I want, I want, I want!” I’m trying to instill in them what is important and what isn’t.

My dad is Tongan. My sister and brothers are half Tongan.

Happy to give away $10,000 By Rhiannon McConnell Lower Hutt’s Flooring Warehouse gave away $10,000 of travel to one lucky customer last week. Flooring Warehouse co-owner Rebecca Meynell-Leenderts says she was sitting on her hands waiting to tell the winners the news. “You should have heard the screaming on the phone.” Winner and owner of Beveridge Locksmiths Alan Le Breton says he and his partner are ecstatic with the win. “It’s unbelievable really, it’s not too often you get 10,000 dollars of travel given to you.” He says he and his partner are planning to take a trip to either Rarotonga or San Francisco. “This time of year, you are over winter. “I really need a holiday and I’m going to take it.” Rebecca says they are very happy the prize went to Alan. “It’s going to a good home.

Singing the night away

“It’s pretty nice to give away.” Customers had to buy carpet to go in the draw. The Flooring foundation gave away 10,000 travel funds last week and is now giving away 1000 mini ipads to customers.

By Emily Elliott A group of 19 Konini Primary School children will be heading to ArtSplash this week to perform as a choir. Every year Konini Primary School performs in ArtSpalsh, a week of dance, drama, visual arts, and choir performances by schools from the Wellington region. Last year, the school did a dance. This year, it’s the choir’s turn to perform. Senior teacher Kirsten Reid is working with Judy Benseman to oversee the choir, and says the children have been practicing twice a week for two terms. “It’s fun. School is more than academics. “The kids are really dedicated to the choir.

The girls come ready with their folders,” says Mrs Reid. On the night, Konini Primary School will join with numerous school choir’s from around Wellington, and sing a range of songs such as Cabaret, Something in the Water, and Pure Imagination. Year 6 pupil Maria Williams has been in the choir for three years, and says it is a lot of fun. “We all love singing, and I’m looking forward to performing!” she says. Konini Primary School will be performing on Wednesday, 11 September at 5:30pm.Mrs Reid says they are hoping to keep performing as a choir, and are thinking of doing Christmas Carols.

By Rhiannon McConnell Some may think it is far too early to even start thinking about Christmas yet, but the Wainuiomata Rotary Club are getting ready for their annual Santa Parade early. Coordinator Joy Jones says they have started sending out letters to last year’s participants inviting them to join again this year. “We’ve sent the letters out to all the usual people.” She says they have already had a few responses back but are hoping to even more than the 30 involved last year. “I would like to see a few more.” Joy says the parade, which has been running for over twenty years, is an important part of the community and a great event to be part of. “It brings Wainui together and it just shows good community spirit.” Joy says they have plans to make this the best Santa Parade they have ever had. “Each year it is gradually getting better.” She says they had a very positive reaction to last year’s parade. “Everyone said it was the best they had been too.” Last year a market day was held at the same time as the parade. “In the mall last year you couldn’t move. It was fantastic.” The parade is set to take place on December 7 with a rain date of December 8 planned.

Joy Jones is organising the Christmas Parade.

It will follow the same route as last year, starting in Burden Ave and following through to the mall. Joy says they are looking for all sorts of groups

to be involved. To be involved call Joy Jones on 970 6244 or 027 655 4390 or email wainuirotarysantaparade@

Meet our two candidates for the position of Mayor in the Hutt City... Ray Wallace What is your council background? I have had extensive local Council experience serving 19 years on the Wainuiomata Community Board, 15 years as Councillor for Wainuiomata and last 3 years as the Mayor. I have chaired the main Council committees and have an in-depth knowledge of Council processes and protocol. Explain a little about yourself. I have lived in Wainuiomata for 25 years. I am married to Linda Goss-Wallace who was born and bred in Wainuiomata. We have many friends and family living in the valley and we enjoy lifestyle here. What is your proudest moment as mayor? Leading the City Councillors to work united as one team and achieved the lowest rates in the region. We reduced Council debt and had record levels spent on improvements in the city along with attracting over $250million of new business investment which has provided jobs and growth. Why should the people of Wainuiomata vote for you? I have been the voice of Wainuiomata at Council for the past 18 years I know the needs of Wainuiomata residents. I have a proven track record of getting results and working hard for Wainuiomata. I’ve championed and fought hard for many projects including the Black Creek flood protection upgrade to ensure our residents are protected from future flooding. How would you grow the Hutt Valley? As Mayor, I am already in discussions with developers to encourage more quality homes being built in Wainuiomata. I am working collaboratively with Development Wainuiomata to ensure business expansion. ‘Big Save’ is moving its logistic operations centre here bringing more jobs. I will promote ‘Technology Valley’ which will bring more business, growth and jobs for our city.

Phil Stratford

What is a saying you like to live by? “The results you get are determined by the commitment you give.” What is something people would be surprised to know about you? I love quad biking at the beach and in the bush. What do you see as the biggest issues facing the Hutt City? I am fighting hard to ensure we don’t get amalgamated with Wellington in to a Super City. This community and our City have achieved so much of many years. Our debt is reducing and our rates increases remain the lowest in the region. That would change in a Super City and hit us all in the pocket. As Mayor I will continue to strongly voice our opposition to any forced amalgamation. What would be your goal as mayor? Continue to lead a vibrant and inclusive city that not only looks after, but also listens to its’ residents. I will remain accessible to residents as I always have and will continue to be active in the community working shoulder to shoulder with the people of the valley. I will continue share my ‘energy’, ‘vision’ and ‘commitment’ with you all.

What is your council background? Explain a little about yourself. I worked as a Valuer for Lower Hutt City Council in the 1970’s. I worked with City Councils in the region for 30 years in the RMA Procedures. I was a foundation Member of NZ Rates Reform Association. Why have you decided to run for Mayor? Have lived in the Hutt Valley my whole life - 65 years. Feet on the ground sort of guy. Taken a couple of knocks on the way through but always have got up and started again. I really know what hard work is! It breaks my heart to see how far we have slipped compared to places like Taupo, Hamilton, Tauranga, Nelson. Many facilities for our young people date back to the 1950’s such as Taita netball courts. There is so much that can be held and expanded in the Hutt: Craft Exhibitions, Performing Arts, aged grade sport, Conferences, etc. They all go elsewhere, and it is a total embarrassment. Why should the people of Wainuiomata vote for you? Have never lived in Wainui (my father did for a short period after the War) but grew up in Moera and Park Avenue. Through sport and extended family interests such as Rugby, League, Tennis etc I do spend a lot of time here. I have refereed rugby for 26 years. I’d like to concentrate on establishing and Aged Care Facility. I have an announcement of a possible venutre, to be announced later this month. How would you grow the Hutt Valley? An event led building recovery. What is a saying you like to live by? “Rise above it.” In business, married with four grown children and 12 grandkids and a 95-year-old mother still going strong and with a huge extended family, you see a lot of life with ALL that it comes with. What is something people would be

surprised to know about you? As CEO and Founder of Renouf properties that have developed and 16 multi-storied buildings in Wellington over 25 years from concept to completion including Kirkaldies which created several thousand jobs in Wellington region over that time (many for Wainui trades). Been in business at the very knife edge and have created over $300m in investment into our region yet in December I am Mr Clown. Play music at Old Age homes, children’s parties, supermarkets, but the event I look forward to most is entertaining at the ZB Special Children’s Function at Te Raparahi Stadium. What do you see as the biggest issues facing the Hutt City? Job loss and lack of vision. We are being suffocated by Mayoral and Council inaction. What would be your goal as mayor? I would like to be remembered as the Mayor who re-established the Hutt to its “rightful place” in New Zealand.

Blooming good flower show The Wainuiomata Flower Show was a great event, according to co-ordinator Wendy Paulik. She says that there were definitely more people who attended this year than in previous years. “Entries were about the same because of the hot August, and the bad rain and wind last week,” Ms Paulik says. “Given the weather conditions, we had a really good

show.” She says there was a great response from the schools, although the children’s entries were down from last year. “People loved it, and the new location was really well received. “We will definitely be there again next year.”

First prize for the fruit and vegetable collection went to Elliott Little.
