Wainuiomata News: 587 1660

By Rhiannon McConnell A study by the University of Otago has found smoking in cars has decreased by almost 50 percent in Wainuiomata since 2011. A celebration was held last Thursday by the Smokefree Cars working group, who have focused on encouraging people to stop smoking in their cars over the past two years. Group member Sisi Tuala-Leafe says they are amazed by the success. “The results show a significant change in only six months. “We are pleased to see some beneficial impact on smoking behaviour in vehicles.” Continued page 2.

Plunket arrange clothes swap By Rhiannon McConnell Families will have the chance to get new clothes before the busy season at a clothes swap run by a Wainuiomata volunteer Plunket group. Plunket in the Neighbourhood coordinator Merran Heron says they decided to run the children’s clothes swap as another way to give to the community. While the volunteer group is not new, Merran says this is the first event they have put on and membership is increasing. The event will be held on December 16 but parents will be invited to bring in items in the weeks leading up to the clothes swap and in return will be given tokens for every item they bring. On the day they will then be able to get clothes with the tokens. “It’s nice to be able to do something for the community,” Merran says. Merran says it is a great way to swap your boy/girl baby clothes if you are having another baby of the

Merran says the friendships that are built provide a lot of support for people.

Millie talks about 101 years By Rhiannon McConnell A 101-year-old Wainuiomata woman says a healthy lifestyle is the trick to living a long life. “I eat a lot of fruit,” Millie Sukroo says. A lot of things have changed since Millie moved to Wainuiomata 65 years ago but she says she still loves the Valley and is not planning on leaving. “I wouldn’t like to live anywhere else now. She and her husband moved to Wainuiomata in 1948. “It was the cheapest place we could get a section,” she says. “Most people came here, I think, because the sections were reasonably cheap.” She has lived in the same house since moving to Wainuiomata and has seen a lot of changes happen around her. “It was very different. “There were a lot of kids.” Millie says the only shops were in the village. She says one of the biggest areas of change has been traffic. Millie says two cars a day would drive past in 1948.

“Now they are going backwards and forwards all day.” The family’s Coast Road home was on a small one-way gravel road when they moved there. Millie says it became a problem once when the bus driver offered to drop the family all the way home because they had a lot to carry after a trip to New Plymouth. She says there was no room for him to turn around. “He had to back all the way [back] up to the bus stop,” Millie says there is one change she has not taken on board. “I’m not into computers and I’ve got no intention of getting into them.” Millie still plays mah-jong and does the crossword in the newspaper. She has a love for gardening but now spends most of her time inside. “I can’t do a lot now.” She worked as a shorthand typist and her husband worked in plan records. He died seven years ago at the age of 93. The mother-of-two now has seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. However, she does not think she will be a great, great grandmother in the

near future. “It might take a while to get to that.” She says seeing her family and friends is still what makes her most happy.

The mother of five moved from England to Wainuiomata three years ago with her husband and two of her children. “I didn’t know anybody at all. “I realised early on that to get involved in the community was the key.” She became a volunteer for the community patrol. She has worked in special needs education but decided to apply for the neighbourhood support role after getting more involved in the community. “I was really shocked I got it.” Dawn says neighbourhood support is a great scheme. “It’s all about making people feel safe in their community.”

CarFit programme for elderly drivers A training workshop at Petone Working Mens Club on Tuesday November 26 will introduce the CarFit programme to Hutt City. CarFit is designed to help older drivers make adjustments in their own car to find their safest fit. There is a 12-point check that takes around 20 minutes to complete, carried out by volunteers free of charge. “With age vision also deteriorates and it is important to minimise blind spots, especially if a driver has reduced mobility in their neck,” Road safety coordinator Jan Simmons says.

Making streets safer By Rhiannon McConnell Wainuiomata has a new Neighbourhood support coordinator and she is ready to make the streets safer. Dawn McKinley has only been in the new role for two weeks but she is already getting to work on raising the profile of neighbourhood support. “Whatever I take on I always like to give 110 per cent.” Dawn wants to start more support groups and a junior neighbourhood support. She also wants to start an award for good neighbours. Dawn says she loves the Wainuiomata Community and her new role. “The community spirit in Wainui is fantastic. “It’s like a little family.”


The Riddiford Lions would like to acknowledge the participation of the Pencarrow Lions and the Wainuiomata Lions in raising money for the defibrillators mentioned in last weeks “News” front page story.

Puppy with heart condition needs help By Rhiannon McConnell A Wainuiomata woman is championing the cause of a very ill puppy with the goal of seeing him re-homed. Canine Solutions owner Jo Goddard says Sarge, a nine month old Wainuiomata born Bull Mastiff, has a serious heart condition. Jo says the Central Hutt Vets and Pet Vet have established that Sarge needs to go to Massey for further tests. “If he doesn’t get help, he is likely to die within the next 18 months.” As a result, Jo and her team have set up the ‘Save Sarge’ fundraising campaign to help fund his trip to Massey. “We are really hoping that they can cure him.” If Sarge cannot be cured, the Canine Solutions team will keep him until his time is up. “We want to give it our best shot as he just brings happiness to anyone that meets him.” Currently, one of the staff is fostering him. Sarge came to Canine Solutions through one of the staff members because a friend was having trouble re-homing him because of his ill health. “I immediately said we would help, not realising how ill he actually was,” Jo says.

Wainuiomata kidnapping A group of teenagers were allegedly kidnapped, threatened and assaulted by three teenage boys in Wainuiomata on Saturday. The trio appeared in the Hutt Valley Youth Court on Monday facing charges of kidnapping, aggravated robbery and threatening to do grievous bodily harm. The boys, aged 14, 15 and 17, were alleged to have forced their way into the car of two 18-year-olds and a 19-year-old who were parked in Wainuiomata about 8pm on Saturday. The victims were forced to drive around Lower Hutt, Wellington and Porirua for five hours before Police caught up with the group in Whaiwhetu at 1:30. The two older boys are also accused of robbing two 15-year-olds of their mobile phones and clothing in Porirua during the ordeal.

Canine Solutions owner Jo Goddard

As part of their community work Canine Solutions rescues and re-homes dogs. “Normally we don’t re-home dogs with serious medical issues as it is a burden on the new owner, however, once I had met Sarge I didn’t have the heart to put him to sleep.” Jo says Sarge is a happy and friendly dog. “Everyone just loves him and it’s funny to watch other dogs nurture him.

“They must know he is sick.” Jo says they believe the condition has stunted the dog’s growth. “He looks like a miniature sized Bull Mastiff.” Jo says it is sad how many dogs have to be re-homed. “So many dogs get put down because they can’t get re-homed or no one wants them. “People are breeding dogs without careful consideration of where these puppies will eventually end up.” The ‘Save Sarge’ campaign will be kicked off at the Grand Opening Day of the Canine Complex in Seaview on Sunday December, 8. Jo says they will donate $1 from every sale at the retail store on the open day to go towards saving Sarge. “We hope the community will gather around and support us with this good cause.” There will be a gold coin donation box on the counter and the opportunity to have a photo taken with Sarge and Santa. This story is a follow up to the front page story we ran in the Wainuiomata News on November 13.

Sarge, right, has a serious heart condition.

Getting rid of your old TV - recycle Over 1000 televisions have been dropped off for recycling in the Hutt Valley as part of the TV TakeBack programme, the Ministry for the Environment says. Mike Mendonça, Director of Operations at the Ministry for the Environment says they have been urging people to find safe ways of getting rid of their old televisions since the digital changeover. “Safe recycling reduces the risk of contamination, minimises waste going to landfills and means tonnes of waste can be

Playcentres do more together By Rhiannon McConnell Wood Hatten and Wainuiomata Playcentre joined others from across the Hutt Valley to come together and have fun in the sun at Avalon Park last Thursday. Wood Hatten Playcentre president Hannah Mitchell says the two Wainuiomata playcentres are working to do more together. “We are really focusing on putting our centres out there together.” The event, organised by the Hutt Playcentre Association, had 18 playcen-

tres involved in the Fun in the Sun event. Wainuiomata Playcentre Co-Secretary Karen Sagaga says they were really happy with how the day went. The clouds in the sky provided the perfect cover for the children to ride their bikes and play. A little bit of extra excitement was added by free rides being given on the park train. RIGHT: Vatau Isaac (3), Atreyu Olsen (2), Rome Heketa (2), Casey Wick and Toby Wick (1) play on their tricycles.

Student designs poster with biro pens By Rhiannon McConnell A Wainuiomata High School student has developed a new school values poster which is drawn entirely with biro pens. Year 12 student Natasha Bethune (right) says she only draws with biro ballpoint pens because they look different. “Not many people do it.” She was asked by a teacher to come up with a design for the School’s new PBFL, Positive Behaviour for Learning, posters. Natasha says it took a lot of work and a lot of pens. She says if she added together all the hours she spent on the artwork it would add up to a full week. “It was a lot of stress. “I was just really happy that people could finally see it.” On top of the poster work Natasha works part time and had six other school subjects focus on. Natasha says she wanted to it for herself and her school. “I just saw it as something to do with my time, something to give back to the school.” She wants to continue with her art after

school but is not sure what exactly she will do yet. Photography teacher and Year 12 Dean Richard Hatfield was in charge of getting the poster done. He says he and Natasha had a lot of concepts to work through before deciding on the final product. “Neither of us really knew what we really wanted.” The original will be framed and Richard wants to lay all the concepts on a board to show younger students the process Natasha went through to get to the finished product. Richard says everyone has loved the finished product. To thank Natasha, the school let her choose some art equipment from their catalogue. Richard says it was no surprise when Natasha chose all biros. The schools PBFL values - Manaakitanga, Achievement, Honesty, Perseverance, and Respect - were photoshoped onto the poster. The Positive Behaviour for Learning programme is a five year framework adopted by the school for next year. “We want to focus on the positive things,”

Richard says. “We are really happy with the way it is starting to make changes in the school.” The posters will be hung in places the students can see. “It’s simple, it’s eye-catching.”

The editor reserves the right to abridge letters or withhold unsuitable letters from publication. Send or fax them to the address on page two, or email them to news@ Please note that your name and street address must also be provided in emails.

Dear Ed, I have been a resident of Main Road for over ten years and daily see drivers overtaking vehicles and driving at very high speeds. Main Road is one of the busiest streets in Wainuiomata yet in those ten years I have never seen a speed camera along this road. Wainuiomata Road has a fixed speed camera and sometimes a mobile one too. I often see a speed camera in Wellington

Road. Drivers get used to these cameras and average speeds drop. So why can’t we have one in Main Road occasionally? Even if the police aren’t concerned for residents and users of Main Road, perhaps they could think about the revenue gathering opportunities. From what I see there is a fortune waiting to be made. Regards, Anthony S.

Footpath parking illegal Dear Ed, I am writing this in hope of doing the council traffic department out of some money. Do you know its illegal to park your car with two wheels on the footpath? I didnt, like 80 per cent of the people I’ve asked, I also walk every day and have seen many doing the same for years. I have put letters in their

letter boxes advising them its illegal. I got a ticket. So be it, as it’s the law. Unfortunately, I think mine was targeted. Sad people out there nothing better to do than try to cause misery to other people. If by writing this letter I only help one person, then it was worth my time as I am a busy person.

You can’t beat Wellington on a good day!

That’s what they say and there’s really no better way to see Wellington than from on board the Dominion Post East by West Ferries! The harbour ferries run from their superb central waterfront location at Queens Wharf in front of their ticket office in the Meridian Building. There are up to 16 return sailings everyday out to Days Bay & Matiu Somes Island. In the weekends and public holidays (fine weather permitting), the ferries also run Harbour Explorer Tours calling in at Petone, Matiu Somes Island, Days Bay, Seatoun & Queens Wharf. These trips are very popular and quickly are becoming a ‘must do’ for visitors to the capital! The catamaran ferries carry up to 99 passengers and have a fantastic viewing from their open top decks. Inside the main cabin you can buy coffee, tea, snacks and icecreams as well as beer and wine from the bar onboard. The ferries are also available for evening charters with a range of different options. You won’t find friendlier crew than on the

Be safe these holidays.

Speed of craft must not exceed 5 knots when: • within 50 metres of another vessel, raft or person in the water. • within 200 metres of shore or structure, on the inshore side of any row of buoys marking that distance from shore. • within 200 metres of any vessel or raft flying Flag A (Diving Flag).

Summer boating is nearly here Another summer is almost here and it is time to make use of our wonderful harbour and coastline. These are basic safety rules and guidelines to help you stay safe on the water. There needs to be a lifejacket for each person on board all pleasure boats. If the boat is less than 6 metres in length, then the lifejackets must be worn unless the Skipper decides it is safe not to. This includes kayaks and stand up paddleboards. All boats must carry a means of communication to let other people know if they get into trouble. If you are very close to shore this could be a very loud whistle; further away from shore might require a VHF radio, or distress flare or emergency radio beacon (EPIRB). Put your cell phone in a waterproof bag, and dial 111 if in trouble. If diving you must display a dive flag of at least 60cm x 60cm. There are a lot of swimmers in the water over summer, some quite a long way from a beach. Remember to keep a good lookout at all times and your speed less than 5 knots within 200 metres of shore or a divers flag and within 50 metres of another boat or person in the water.

No vessel shall exceed a speed of 12 knots in the Lambton Harbour area (as shown on map).

Always check the weather forecast before you go out, it can change quickly in Wellington. Always tell someone where you are going and when you will be back. Stay safe and enjoy your boating this summer.

Rallying together for Movember Movember is all about raising awareness for mens health, considering prostate cancer is the most common cancer in New Zealand men. Around 2,500 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year in New Zealand, a figure similar to that of women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Movember country manager Rob Dunne says this year he wants to see more than 18,000 Kiwis get involved with the month of moustachery this year, compared to the 15,00 that participated last year. “It’s amazing how many people grow

a moustache during Movember, and this year we want to get as many of those people we can to register at Movember. com,” he says. “Movember is about creating conversation and a strong community of understanding around men’s health issues. The funds New Zealand raised in 2012 have gone directly to our partners, and we’re excited to see what we can contribute again this year,” says Dunne. The New Zealand Movember team works with their charity partners to ensure funding gets to the programs that count.

Fostering Creativity At Jack and Jill Early Learning Centre. Creativity is as natural and necessary for children as fresh air and sunshine! By exposing children to creative experiences, we give them a rich and memorable childhood while laying the foundation for a lifetime of creative expression. At Jack and Jill the teachers place a big emphasis on creating an environment that focuses on the process of forming creative ideas through exploration and discovery. Creativity is not to be confused with talent, skill, or intelligence. Creativity is not about doing something better than others, it is about thinking, exploring, discovering, and imagining. At Jack and Jill creativity is found in the entire environment such as through art and music, science and play. Creative thoughts are found in all aspects of a growing child's life and can be learned from daily experiences. The quality teaching team at Jack and Jill encourage

Who would you invite to dinner?

children to draw on blank paper, to bang a pot with a wooden spoon in time to music, to build an inviting reading area with blankets and cushions, or to dance to a favourite CD. Choosing their own creative materials empowers children and opens their eyes to the world around them. Creativity comes easy and natural to young children. The teacher’s at Jack and Jill believe it is important to emphasize the enjoyment and the value of the process of being creative, more than the finished product. This encourages children to explore, express and be spontaneous while hard at work. Children who feel free to make mistakes and to explore and experiment will also feel free to invent, create, and find new ways to do things. Grant the Jack and Jill’s philosophy of free play. The side benefit is that fostering creativity at Jack and Jill makes teaching more rewarding and fun and gives children a zest for imagining and learning to last a lifetime.

Dave Tompkins Mall manager Dave Tompkins says he is looking forward to shaving of his handlebar moustache. “It’s a little bit itchy now. “It’s getting bigger and longer.” He says he will be going back to being clean shaven when Movember is over. “This will be coming off.” He has raised $30 so far but is still holding out for more. “I want $50.”

Josh Briggs Community board member Josh Briggs says he has mixed reactions to his mo. “The mo is growing at a rapid rate. “I’ve had people saying I should keep it going a bit longer.” But he says his wife is looking forward to it being chopped off. “It’s getting a bit manky.” Josh has raised $115 so far but wants to get to $200 before the end of the month. “Hopefully I will get some more money coming.”

Got a story you think is news worthy?

Slightly creepy. Most of the laugh tracks you hear on television were recorded in the 1950’s, which means a lot of the people you hear laughing are dead.

Wainuiomata’s first Police Station on Main Road. Today this is a residential home.

The second Police Station was situated behind today’s Caltex Service Stationd. Today this is a residential home.

Do you remember?

Wainuiomata’s first Police Station, a residential station built on the Main Road next to today’s telephone exchange, was opened on 24 January 1958. The first Constable, Jack Vaughan transferred from Ross in the South Island and had his own way of dealing with wayward

youth. When he apprehended a young lad up to no good, he would grab him by the scruff of the neck and march him home to his parents, who were left to take the appropriate action – which they usually did! As Wainuiomata grew, Constable Pud-

dick joined Constable Vaughan and the second Police Station was built on The Strand, behind today’s Caltex Service Station, and was in use in the 1970’s. By 1987 there were calls for a larger Police Station and our third Station was built at a cost of $600,000 and opened

IT’S ALL ON! Piri Weepu Invitational Rugby 7’s Tournament Saturday 30th November 9am

at both William Jones Park & Mary Crowther Park. Come along Wainuiomata! Cheer these 16 teams on!

Kenneth Jones married Margaret (Peg) Burdan.

On April 6, 1950, Kenneth Hone Jones married Margaret Maureen (Peg) Burdan at the Methodist Church in Wainuiomata. Both the bride and groom grew up in Wainuiomata. Margaret was the third daughter of Claude and Margaret (Madge) Burdan and the great-great-granddaughter of Richard Prouse, (Richard Prouse originally owned the land on which our Pioneer Church stands). Kenneth (Brown) was the son of William Jones and the grandson of Pardy Burrows

who was the first postmaster in the Valley. Peg told the story to her descendants of there being a storm on the day of the wedding and they were worried that the Minister would not make it. Fortunately, he did. Les Beck was the Best Man. Peg and Brown are commemorated on one of the Park Benches now in place in the graveyard and their daughter (also) Margaret (Kinsey) is a much valued member of our Church Restoration committee.

Athletes off to National Games By Rhiannon McConnell A group of local Special Olympics athletes are heading to the National Summer Games in Dunedin this week. The group is part of the team of 60 athletes going from Special Olympics Hutt Valley. Ten pin bowler Tony Archer says he loves the sport. “I think it’s a fun game for everyone to play.” He has been competing since the 1980’s. Tony says he is looking forward to Dunedin and meeting new people. He says he wants to try and win a medal. “You can only do the best you can.” Basketball player Lance Pere has been playing for twenty years and represented New Zealand twice in soccer and basketball. He says he is looking forward to the games and seeing what the other teams have for them. “We are the champions at the moment.”

The athletes each had to qualify at a regional level to attend the games. Athletes have the chance to qualify for the International Games in LA in 2015 at the summer games. The games are held every four years and it costs $1100 each to compete. They have been fundraising to attend and had help from the Wainuiomata United church, Roger Hanson from H&H Electrical, the Wainuiomata Lioness’ and Sue Hillard and friends from KPMG. The team left yesterday and will return on December 1. Parent Sandra Neal says the group has worked really hard to attend. “It’s a long commitment over four years” Ten Pin Bowling Coach Ron Milburn says he is proud of how hard his team has worked. “My bowlers have been bowling really well. “We hope they all come back with a medal, preferably gold.”

Back row: Tony Archer, Todd Neal, Shane Ford, Dion Woods, Brent Milburn all representing Ten Pin Bowling. Front row: Sonali Bhatacharjee (athletics), Lance Pere (basketball), Donna Favill (athletics).

Golf club a hidden gem

James Short lines up his putt.

By Rhiannon McConnell After fighting back from financial struggles, Wainuiomata Golf Club has become a hidden treasure where experienced and new golfers can enjoy a relaxing day on the green. Club manager Paul Brosnan says a number of factors contributed, including the economic recession and increasing membership costs that resulted in a loss of members. Now the club is back on track and steadily growing. “The business is trending the right way now but it’s a slow and steady recovery. “We believe common sense business decisions will allow us to continue on in our steady recovery.” The Wainuiomata Golf Club has 430 members but Paul says they are always hoping for more. “Like all golf clubs, we would

Johny Shu, Bruce Gordon, and Russell Smith spend the day out on the course.

ideally love to have a larger membership. “Wainui Golf Course is a premium golf destination, and we would love the opportunity to share it with more players.” Paul says around 70 percent of the members come from outside of Wainuiomata. He says anyone can play golf and it is cheaper than most other sports. “Golf is more accessible, and in Wainui cheaper, than ever before in its history.” Paul describes a perfect day on the course as being a bit of sun, cloud and light winds and shooting a good score and a cold drink afterwards with some good mates. He says the club is an asset to the Wainuiomata community. “There is nothing like it in the Wellington area.

“The Wainuiomata Golf Club shows off the wonderful contrast between the city and country” The club originally opened in 1935 as a nine hole course in Stokes Valley, it was known as Tui Glen Golf Club. In 1950 the club moved to the Upper Fitzherbert Road in Wainuiomata. The club was renamed Wainuiomata Golf Club Inc. in 1967, and moved to its current location on Coast Road. It was officially opened in March 1970 as an 18 hole golf course. The clubs current top champions are women, Bettyjean Swainson and Shirley Hay who represented Wainuiomata women recently at Te Marua GC. The top men who competred at Miramar GC were Johnny Schaafhausen, Pieter Hectors and Grant Mumford.

Golfers needed for annual corporate charity Hutt City Council is calling for corporate teams to participate in the annual Charity Golf Tournament jointly sponsored by DLA Phillips Fox. New Zealand’s top professional golfer and business woman in her own right, Lynette Brooky, will be taking part in the event and will be offering a free coaching clinic between 10am-11am prior to registration. The tournament takes place annually at a one of Hutt City’s four golf courses – the venue this year is Manor Park Golf Club on Friday 29 November. The money raised will go to Naenae Primary School for the installation of solar panels to reduce their increasing electricity costs and in turn help them to raise funds for computers at the school. “Don’t miss the opportunity to enter a team or sponsor a hole, this event is a chance to get in behind a fantastic charity event and raise much needed funds for a great cause,” says Tony Stallinger, CEO. Enter a team or sponsor a hole! There will be prizes awarded and an auction held at the end of the day. The tournament kicks off with a shot-gun start at midday with refreshments provided on course.
