Brooklyn mural complete

CALL US ON: 587 1660

By Nikki Papatsoumas After 12 months of research and engagement with the community, tenants from the Brooklyn Street Flats on Harrison Street are proud to unveil a mural on their building. The mural, which depicts Brooklyn’s past and present, was a part of Wellington City Council’s Community Action Programme. The main focus of the programme is working with the tenant communities to identify priorities, develop a community vision or plan, and implement a comprehensive programme of support and resources for community based activities and projects. Continued on page 2. Joanna Burleigh, Beverley Lim, Val Willcox Rosemarie Bowers, Boris Tulchinsky and Helle Argus stand in front of the mural at the Brooklyn Street Flats.

Continued from page 1. By Nikki Papatsoumas Senior community advisor for projects Joanna Burleigh says they were approached by the tenants who were interested in painting a mural the whole community could enjoy. “It was a tenant led initiative. They were all really keen to honour the site and the people that lived here previously. “They have managed to honour the whole of Brooklyn, it is a really lovely gesture.” Tenants spent the last twelve months researching the sites rich history, as well as a more broad history of the suburb itself. This involved speaking to the Brooklyn Historical Society and connecting with neighbours. They drew inspiration from old photographs and books they found. There ideas were then passed

Completed mural at the Brooklyn street flats

on to art facilitator for Wellington City Council’s city housing community action team Ellen Coup, who began painting the mural in June. Through their research the tenants decided to focus on several things for the mural. The finished work of art depicts O’Brien & Co Carrier Company and horse stables,

which once stood at the site, as well as the Calvin Church which was built next to the stables in 1906. Tenants are also depicted in the mural, there is Val playing with her first grandchild, and Helle also features with her “darling” Chihuahua Rolly. The resident cat Silky also makes an appearance.

Tenants say they believe Ellen managed to reflect their vision perfectly. “The mural reflects some of what was on this site before these flats were built,” says tenant Rosemarie Bowers. “It adds so much colour and character to this place, it is not just a block of flats at the end of the street.”

Business network making strides By Nikki Papatsoumas More than a year after being established, the Eastern Suburbs Business Network is still making strides. The network was started in February last year after founders Harvey World Travel manager/owner Debbie Natoli and The Law Company barrister and solicitor Taryn Playle attended an Enterprise Miramar function. They enjoyed the social aspect of the function and realised they would like to start up their own informal business network meetings, as a way for local businesses to interact and support one another. Twenty-six people attended the networks monthly meeting which was held last Wednesday evening at The

Roxy. This month members celebrated the completion of the Miramar Town Centre Upgrade, which took place around the Park Rd/Miramar Ave junction. As part of the upgrade the footpath in front of The Roxy was extended to make more space for seating and pedestrians. “It’s lovely, it’s fantastic out there. We hope to see tables and chairs and umbrellas out there in the summer it is just so pleasant,” says Debbie. “It’s putting a heart back into Miramar.” She says in particular they were pleased at the communication and engagement they had with the council while work took place.

More numbers needed By Nikki Papatsoumas Members of Tai Chi classes held at the Island Bay Community Centre fear they may have to cancel classes if more people do not attend. The weekly classes are run through Enliven, and teacher Chris Mori says although they have around six people attending each week, they need at least a dozen to make it viable. The Island Bay Community Centre have kindly offered to hire the space to the group for free, and Island Bay Community Centre advocate Lisa Cunningham says it is because she believes it is important

to offer these classes to people locally. “I didn’t want to see some people lose something that kept them going, I felt it would be sad, so now I want to see the word get out there about the classes.” Tai Chi is a form of exercise which uses slow movements, and has been proven to significantly improve various health conditions. It is perfect for older people who want to maintain and improve their health, especially those suffering from high or low blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, depression and

Residents make lucky escape By Nikki Papatsoumas Berhampore residents and staff from Enliven’s Kilmarnock Heights Home in Berhampore have come away unscathed from a nearby slip - with exciting stories from the night to share. Earlier this year residents were evacuated from their homes on Priscilla Crescent in Kingston, after a slip came away from underneath their houses. Kilmarnock Heights Home is situated nearby, and the home manager Bronwyn Drennan says that 35 residents were evacuated to Enliven’s Huntleigh Home in Karori, as a precaution, as the slip had landed on some of the homes land. After getting the all clear later that day, resi-

dents returned home and things at Kilmarnock are once again back to business as usual. Resident Kevin Garrett says police knocked on doors in the early hours of the morning to inform residents and staff they would have to evacuate because of the slip. He says he quickly donned a high visibility vest, to head out and see what was going on. “We thought it might have been directly above our home, because it was dark we couldn’t really see what was going on - it turned out that it only effected our drive way though .” Mr Garrett says he still pops out every day to inspect the slip and see if anything else has come away.

Top Award

Wellington City Council’s Housing team took out the top Australasian ‘Professional Excellence in Housing Award’ for New Zealand – the Excellence in Social Housing Award – in Wellington last Thursday. The Australasian Housing Institute awards acknowledge social housing projects that are judged to have made a significant and lasting difference to tenants and their community. The Council also won the Leading Housing Project Award for the upgrade of Central Park Apartments, which has been transformed into a place where neighbours can get to know each other.

Prom helps neonatal unit By Nikki Papatsoumas The Neonatal Trust Wellington are holding an American styled Spring Prom this Saturday. The event is being held as a fundraiser, and all money raised will go towards purchasing 10 feeding machines for Wellington Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Fitting to the theme the event will be held at the Brierley Theatre at Wellington College, and there will be a variety of beer, wine and food available. There will also be a charity auction with a variety of items up for grabs including a year’s supply of Tip-Top ice-cream. Neonatal Trust Wellington trustee Justine Mitchell says she has been blown away by the generosity of

Wellington businesses. “The generosity is just amazing, there have been so many donated items.” Because of this all costs associated with putting on the event have been met, which means all money raised can be donated straight back to the Neonatal Trust. This is the trusts big fundraiser for the year, and Justine says it is a fantastic opportunity to head back to school and attend prom. “We really wanted to do something that was for doctors and nurses, mums and dads. This way they can have a well-deserved night off. “We want to get the word out so people can come along and support us, the more people there, the

more we can raise through our charity auction.” Justine became a trustee after her twin boys were born three months premature, and says she is familiar with how invaluable the feeding machines are. She says some babies are born as early as 23 weeks, and weighing as little as 500 grams it can take time for them to learn how to tolerate milk feeds. “The machines are so amazing, it feeds them so slowly and allows them to tolerate the food.”  The Spring Prom will be held this Saturday October 12 at the Brierley Theatre at Wellington College.

Newtown community art swap By Nikki Papatsoumas Newtown locals with old unwanted art supplies are being encouraged to take part in the Newtown Community Centres Art Supplies Swap. This is the second year the swap will take place, and people have between October 14 and 19 to come along and drop off any unwanted art supplies. They then have the opportunity

to come along on October 19 between 3pm and 4pm and choose from other unwanted supplies for free. Newtown Community Centre coordinator Anna Porter says they are keen for any art or craft supplies that are still in usable condition such as feathers, buttons, ribbons, paints and paint brushes – sky’s the limit. “We would like to see it really

take off this year. We are facilitators for the local art community, and if people can come along and swap with other people hopefully it will help them out.” She says that anyone in the community is welcome to take part.  For more information head to the Newtown Community Centre website,

Young designer takes out top spot By Nikki Papatsoumas A 13-year-old girl from Seatoun has taken out one of the top spots in this year’s Youthtown Creatifs Young Designer Award. Jessie Cartmel, a year 9 student from Wellington East Girls’ College, won the AUT Wearable Art Award for her ‘family tree’ mask. Jessie says she found out about the competition through her soft materials teacher. Students were asked to create a mask based on the theme of identity. “We were asked to make a mask which represented our identity, so I decided to do mine on my nana’s farm. “I was going to look at things I enjoy like art and music but because it was about identity I thought I should focus on something personal to me.” Jessie’s mask, which is based on her nanas farm in Gisborne, features a green woolen background and a tree made of velvet with mandarins, representing her nanas orange orchard. It also includes the words joy, smile, laughter, caring and love which Jessie says represent to her what a family should be. Jessie says the whole project took

10 weeks, five weeks for the design and five weeks to create the mask. The win was a surprise for Jessie, who was at waterpolo training and returned home to a celebration dinner. She says her family couldn’t have been more excited or proud of her, especially her nana. “My nan felt really happy that I had won.”

Jessie won a sewing machine worth $1000 as well as a trophy, certificate and a trip to Auckland where she got to see a professional model wear her mask. Jessie says winning has inspired her to continue on with soft materials design. “I love sewing, next year I am going to be doing more with clothes and designing skirts.”

The team at Kilbirnie Community Policing Centre want you to enjoy this wonderful time of year and offer a few tips on how to do so safely and sensibly: • Designate a sober driver, it is a no brainer. • As part of your spring clean, check doors, windows, sheds, and garages to ensure they have secure locks and stays. • Leave nothing of value (bur glar bait) on show in any parked vehicles. • Burglar alarms - if you have one, use it. • Report all suspicious activity. • Supervise family members, particularly children, at the

beach or pool. • Wear lifejackets if boating. • Check you emergency kit be prepared. The year has flown by and we have continued to do our best in suppressing the criminals and fighting the crime. Of note your local Southern Community Constable Sam McKenzie had great success in September apprehending a burglar red handed. He did some great work staking out a targeted premises and the rat-bag he caught was linked to 13 burglaries and is currently locked away awaiting court hearings. We recently enjoyed great community interaction at the Miramar Safety Day held at the Chelsea Community Centre and organised in conjunction with the Wellington City Council. Thanks to all that attended and thanks to all who

have contributed to a safe and successful year to date. As part of our community policing team we work with Eastern Rocks Community Patrol and Wellington South Community Patrol. Both have been instrumen-

tal recently in making your roads safer by identifying and assisting in apprehending intoxicated motorists. They have also assisted in coming to the aid of vulnerable members of the public and we thank them for their fantastic

community service. I encourage you all to enjoy the longer days safely, sensibly and look after each other. Sgt James Patrick Kilbirnie Community Policing Centre.

Celebrating 25 years of support

Wellington Women's Health Collective coordinators Nikki Saffery and Robyn Goldsmith

By Robert Johnson A Wellington community group is still going strong after giving 25 years of support for Wellington women and children. The Wellington Women’s Health Collective (WWHC) will celebrate its 25th birthday with a “low key” afternoon tea on Friday. The WWHC is run by its two coordinators and support workers Robyn Goldsmith and Nikki Saffery, who empower and support women to make informed choices about their health. Robyn says this year marks an important milestone for the collective.

“Twenty-five years is such an achievement to reach for a community group like us. “To have been around for all that time and still receive community funding is pretty special,” she says. Nikki says the celebration will include volunteers, staff, old members of management and community groups who have kept the collective going over the years. “We hope to see a few faces we haven’t seen in a while and get a few people up to talk about the collective and some of the achievements it has had.” After 15 years in the

collective for Robyn and 22 years for Nikki, they say it is a passion for the cause that keeps them going. “It’s incredibly satisfying to go home at the end of the day and know you’ve given them information to change something in their life for the better,” Robyn says. Nikki agrees and says her passion for working with women is the source of her drive. “Knowing that our services are free and available to all women is great. I feel privileged to sit down with these women while they make decisions about themselves.” Both Robyn and Nikki say the WWHC could not have survived without the support of various community groups and grants as well as support from Wellington City Council. The WWHC provides free support to all women who need advice with regards to any problem, whether it is physical or mental. They also offer a counseling service to those who cannot afford it through a general practitioner. For more information on what services the WWHC offers visit

“I am not a big user of public transport, so it doesn’t really affect me.”

“I can’t see why price increases are justified. Wages don’t often go up so what do they need the money for.”

“It’s not good. They are always increasing and the service isn’t the greatest.”

“I don’t take the bus so it doesn’t affect me, but it is exceptional pricing wise. It is supposed to be affordable.”

Voter turnout low


As of last week only 15.5 per cent or 21,096 people of the Capital’s 136,390 eligible voters had returned their papers for the local body elections. This compares with 15.9 per cent at the same time in the voting period in 2010 and 16.1 per cent in 2007. There is still one week left to get voting papers in. Voting papers must be sent by October 9 to ensure delivery by 12 noon on election day. After October 9 voting papers can be delivered to the Election office, 101 Wakefield Street or after hours in the overnight drop box at 101 Wakefield Street, or at any Wellington City Library up to 12 noon on election day, Saturday October 12.

to the editor

Relief & alarm

Safe cycling

Dear Editor I read Mr Westfolds letter with some relief, and alarm. Relief that he is still alive. Alarm at the thought of out of control Miramar footpath cyclists putting him in danger. It is rare to see a cyclist on the footpath in Island Bay. People here are more civilised. Sometimes you do see a child riding a pastel coloured bike on the footpath, but not at breakneck speed of course. As a conspiracy theorist of the first order, I speculate whether these cyclists are in fact paid hit men under orders to take out Mr Westfold and make it look like an unfortunate accident. I hope I am wrong, of course. Keep well, Miramar pensioners! Christine Swift Island Bay

H Westfold has my sympathies (letters 30 September) about inconsiderate footpath cyclists. To clarify the law, there are 3 cases when it's legal to cycle on the footpath: when delivering mail; when riding a bike with small wheels (typically a child's bike); and when it is a shared path, such as on Cobham Drive and Kemp St. But it's no surprise that some people feel safer pedalling on the footpath, given the lack of bike lanes in Wellington. The best way to curb footpath cycling is to provide safe cycling lanes, which protect people on bikes from mixing with cars. It's encouraging to hear so many council candidates getting behind safe cycling. Patrick Morgan Newtown

Song, dance and puppetry

Children interact with Martin Quicke, a cast member of Seasons and Sergio the puppet.

Aria Fuimoana with cast member Helen Grant and Isabella the puppet.

Last Thursday children got the chance to meet the puppets, the stars of Capital E National Theatre for Children Seasons. The free event drew a crowd of around 60, and children got the chance to interact with puppets Sergio, Isabella and Wormy. Seasons is a theatre show that transports children through song, dance and puppetry, teaching them about the four seasons in a year. Marketing coordinator for Capital E Sarah Leary says it was a great way to give children a taste of what the show is all about. “Kids got to get involved with the puppets, it bought t he magic of the theatre to life by giving them an up close look.” For more information on Seasons, head to

For many of us, wounds are a common part of everyday life, with accidents leading to cuts and scratches, grazes, lacerations, blisters and sometimes burns. These can happen no matter how careful we are or how organised our homes or workplaces can be. A wound occurs when a physical injury to the body breaks the skin or a mucous membrane. The body responds immediately and begins repairing the wound with the skin closing up and trying to return to normal as soon as possible. The time of repair may only be needed for a very short time and last for a matter of days or it may need to continue for weeks and months, depending on the type and size of the injury. In the past many wounds have been “fixed” with a plaster, the multipurpose plastic dressing strip. These are fine for small scratches and cuts but there are now many more dressings available for the different types of wounds that can occur. In the past it was believed that wounds should be kept dry but now it is recommended that to help a wound heal well it should be kept moist. This is because a moist wound environment allows the skin cells to grow more quickly, thus healing and returning to normal in much less time. The aim of wound care is to stop any bleeding, prevent infection and to restore the health of the tissue. With any wound once any bleeding is stopped it needs to be cleaned. If it is already a clean wound then warm running water or gauze soaked in saline is appropriate to be used.

Next dry the area and apply the dressing. However if the wound is unclean and is contaminated with any dirt, gravel or foreign bodies then these need to be removed so that the wound does not become infected. It is necessary in these cases to use an antiseptic to wash the area and remove unwanted particles and debris. It is important to try and prevent infection from occurring but if the area of the wound becomes swollen, red, hot and angry then it may be infected and you will need to see your doctor regarding antibiotics. Wounds caused by burns may occur due to sunlight, flames from fire, scalds, chemical or electrical sources. The affected area must be cooled immediately under cold running tap water for at least 20 to 30 minutes. The use of ice is not recommended in these cases. Burns can be superficial affecting only the top surface layer of skin or can be much more serious affecting many layers of tissues. Blisters should not be burst and fat, lotions or ointments should be avoided. There are a number of life style factors that can help with wound healing such as 1) diet 2) exercise 3) medication 4) dressing type 5) warmth. Your diet can affect the speed of the healing process. Foods associated with wound healing are protein, Vitamin C and Vitamin A and zinc and a diet enriched with these components in your diet can enhance wound healing. Regular exercise increases blood flow, improves general health and also speeds wound healing. Medication that affects wound healing includes anti-inflammatory drugs as these can interfere with the body’s natural healing

process and hamper the action of immune system cells. Talk to your pharmacist about your medication to see if any that you are prescribed will hinder wound healing. Wounds that are dressed and kept warm heal faster. Dressings also need to be kept clean and changed every few days or as often as necessary. See your Self Care pharmacist about the many types of dressings that are available and the most appropriate one for a particular wound or your first aid kit. Also ask for the Pharmacy Self Care “Wound Care” card to take home and share with the family.

Buggy’s in Bloom

Elora Forgeson, Fairy Felicity and Carter Harris enjoy the morning in the Botanic Gardens.

Mia Dowman takes her son for a ride in her self-made train buggy.

By Robert Johnson It’s not often you see a baby at the wheel of a fire engine but at the Sport Wellington Big Annual Buggy Walk, this was just one of many quirky buggy designs on show. The Wellington Botanic Gardens was the venue for last Thursday’s event, now in its eighth year, which is the largest of the free monthly buggy walks put on each month by Sport Wellington. Families from around Wellington dressed up their buggy’s and came up with some creative designs such as a train, a John Deere tractor and a buzzy bee. A number of competitions including the ‘Trilogy Dress up your Buggy’ competition attracted a large crowd as well as coffee, a sausage sizzle and Fairy Felicity to keep the children entertained. Buggy Walk organiser Tania Atkinson says the event is “loads of fun, free, and a great way to meet new people in the community”.

Pneumonia is an infection of the air sacs in the lungs and is caused by bacteria, viruses or, rarely, fungi. Most cases of pneumonia are caused by bacteria, most commonly bacteria called streptococcus pneumonia but viral pneumonia is more common in children. Anyone can develop pneumonia but some groups are at greater risk: Babies and toddlers - particularly those born prematurely People who have had a recent viral infection - such as a cold or flu Smokers, people with chronic lung conditions, people with suppressed immune systems, people who drink excessive alcohol, patients in hospital and people who have had strokes. Pneumonia can develop when a person breathes in small droplets that contain pneumonia-causing organisms. It can also occur when bacteria or viruses that are normally present in the mouth, nose and throat, enter the lungs. Symptoms include: High fever, chills, shortness of breath,


increased breathing rate, a worsening cough that may produce discoloured or bloody sputum (phlegm) and sharp chest pains – caused by inflammation of the membrane that lines the lungs. In babies and children, symptoms may be less specific and they may not show clear signs of a chest infection. Commonly they will have a high fever, appear very unwell, and become lethargic. They may also have noisy or rattly breathing, have difficulty with feeding and make a grunting sound with breathing. It is also possible for the skin, lips and nail beds to become dusky or bluish. This is a sign that the lungs are unable to deliver enough oxygen to the body. If this occurs it is vital to seek medical assistance straight away. Most cases of pneumonia can be treated at home. However babies, children, and people with severe pneumonia may need to be admitted to hospital for treatment. Pneumonia is usually treated with antibiotics, even if viral pneumonia is

Swimming to a world record By Dave Crampton There was some tough competition for local swimmers at the New Zealand Short Course swimming championships held at the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre in Kilbirnie last week, but Wellingtonians still broke both world and national records. AquaBlack Samantha Lee, from Wellington’s Capital club, enjoyed a dominant victory in her specialist 200m butterfly. The 21 year old led from start to finish, finishing in a time of 2:12.08. “I tried to go out fast with easy speed and then build from the 100m which I think I did,” she said. New Zealand’s outstanding IPC swimmers added world class glitter. Paralympic superstar Mary Fisher, 20, also from the Capital club, broke 33 seconds for the first time

in the 50m butterfly, setting a world record of 32.91in her second race that night. That beat her world record which was set at last year’s world championships in London. Ms Fisher, who has less than 10 per cent vision, counts her strokes to determine how far she travels before a being tapped on the head to alert her as she reaches the pool’s end. She says she is a bit of a perfectionist. “[I aim] to swim each swim with as good a technique as possible. You just have to think about who you are swimming against.” After taking one gold, two silvers and a bronze, she looks promising for the Rio games in 2016. Por i r ua swi m mer Ben Walsh, 16, grabbed a national open title, an open Wellington record, and a New Zealand age group record in

Competing for top position By Dave Crampton Top Wellington swimmers were beaten by a South Island team, who claimed the junior honours in the inaugural Swim m ing New Zealand Zonal Championships in Wellington on Friday. The inaugural event, which mirrors the collegiate events in USA, featured the 20 of the best swimmers under the age of 15 years from each of four zones. T he zones wer e Sout h Makos (South Island), All Stars (Wellington, Manawatu region), Aqua Knights (Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Taranaki, Hawkes Bay) and Harlequins (Auckland, Northland). Top Wellington swimmers

were Maggie Burns in the 50 metre and 200 metre freestyle, and Josie Kozyniak in the 400 metre freestyle and 400 metre individual medley. Both swimmers are from the Capital club. All swimmers competed in a full national championship programme condensed into two hours of quick-fire team competition, concluding with a squadron relay featuring all 20 swimmers each competing over 50m freestyle. The Makos won that also, after being 25 metres behind at one point. Swimming New Zealand Events Manager Kent Stead says the level of competition was high, and the event went

well. “It provided a level of competition above club events with our best swimmers involved.” Wellington coach Nevill Sutton, who took out the Porirua coach of the year in the Porirua Sports Awards last week, says the Wellington team all swam well in the inaugural event after competing all week at the National short course championships. “It was the first time, and I think it was a success. They all swam really well – it was a really good team performance.” As the swimmers had been competing since Sunday, Mr Sutton says many were
