Santa in the rain By Rhiannon McConnell The annual Santa Parade was a success despite the wind and rain, organiser Joy Jones says. Joy says they decided not to postpone the event because the markets were on the same day and the entrants were keen for it to go ahead. She says it was a wonderful day and people still came out, despite the drizzle. Continued page 2 Shaun, Breanna, and Jacob get into the Christmas spirit at the Santa Parade on Saturday.

Continued from page 1 “Considering the weather, quite a few did turn up to watch. “It was worth it for that.” Twenty groups participated with many having more than one float. “The floats this year were absolutely spectacular. “So much work went into them.” Overall, Joy says she is happy with how it went. “It was a successful parade.” However, she has one hope for the next parade. “Hopefully next year the weather will be better.” The Mayor was unable to be involved this year due to illness. The results from the Christmas raffle will be published next week. Christmas Parade photos page 14.

Dog and owners receives good citizen award By Rhiannon McConnell A local dog and his owner have received the 1000th Canine Good Citizen award in New Zealand. Irma Harris and her dog Comet received the qualifier award after completing the Eukanuba Canine Good Citizen Test training. Irma says she is delighted. “It felt fantastic to gain the qualification after all the training.” Another member of the Wainuiomata Dog Training Club, Maree Ryan and her dog Matrix, also achieved a Canine Good Citizen award. Both dogs and their owners qualified at their first attempt. Comet is an eight-year-old English Springer Spaniel/Bearded Collie cross, while Matrix is a 20-month-old German Shepherd and is Maree’s first dog. The Canine Good Citizen Test is a certification program that tests dogs in simulated everyday situations. “It identifies and rewards dogs that have the training and demeanour to be reliable family members as well as good-standing community members,” Irma says. She says the purpose of the test is to ensure that a dog can be a respected member of the community.

Eight-year-old Comet and owner Irma Harris received a Canine Good Citizen qualification.

Irma says the training is fun and she has established a closer bond with Comet during it. Comet has also previously won the National competition for Paws N Music. Irma’s biggest fear was that Comet might start performing some of his Paws N Music tricks during the test. She has been a member of the Wainuio-

mata Dog Training Club since she moved to Wainuiomata in 1978, while Maree joined six months ago. The two pairs are now training to gain the higher levels of Canine Good Citizen test. Wainuiomata Dog Training Club runs classes on Monday evening at the end of Burden Avenue, Wainuiomata.

You’re all invited to be in to win a Waterblaster plus lots of other prizes to be won. Come on in and say hello to be in to win!

Aiming for the sky By Rhiannon McConnell Last year Azalea Minarapa, 16, only went to school a few times a week, but this year she has achieved almost 100 percent attendance and will be returning to mainstream education next year. Azalea was one of a group of students who accepted awards at the Rangatahi Learning Centre prize giving last Friday. Azalea was awarded the Board of Trustees Aspire Shield, the Lyn Provost Award for most outstanding female student, the highest attendance shield, and the values and attitude award. She received more awards than had ever been presented to one student at the centre. The Year 12 student says last year she had no dreams or ambition. “I wasn’t bothered. “I didn’t really worry about my education then.” However, after starting at the learning centre she discovered a love for tourism and that brought up the rest of her grades. “I got interested in my education.”

Azalea now has a dream to be a flight attendant. “I like flying and I like travelling.” Next year Azalea will be returning to Wainuiomata High School to finish her education. Among other notable award winners were Jadon O’KaneJones who won the Community Cup and Tumanako WhiteRolleston who won top Year 10 student. Head teacher Trish Morgan says she was very proud of the success of all the students.

“I think it’s been an exceptional year.” She says it is wonderful to see young people change the direction of their lives. “That’s what I come to work for.” Auditor-General Lyn Provost and Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace were among the dignitaries who attended.

More recyling bins to be installed Transpacific Waste Management is getting ready to install more glass recycling bins around the city as residents get behind a drive to lift recycling figures. Seaview branch manager Des Fell says that the response was initially slow but now the bins are so heavily used that a truck needs to make two runs a day, seven days a week, to keep pace. Four more bins are under construction.

Students from the Rangatahi Learning Centre ended the year with a prizegiving last Friday.

Early launch for Georgie Pie By Rhiannon McConnell After success at other stores, Wainuiomata McDonalds has launched Georgie Pie months earlier than originally planned. Restaurant owner Chris Boon says they were not going to bring the iconic brand to Wainuiomata until next year but after the success at his other stores he decided to bring the date forward. “They have been doing very well. “The customers are loving it.” From last month Wainuiomata McDonalds have been offering customers the chance to relive the Georgie Pie experience. The pies have not been sold since the 1990’s but many still

have fond memories. Chris says he has good memories of Gerogie Pie and is very happy to be offering them at his restaurant. “It’s still the same pie. “To have it under our umbrella is fantastic.” Currently fans can try the steak mince ‘n’ cheese pies, but Chris says they are rolling out a new flavour in February - chicken and vege. “I enjoy giving back to the community,” Chris says. The pie follows the exact recipe of the original pies, except the MSG has been removed. All stores nationwide are expected to stock the pies by the middle of next year.

Private drainage plans are now available online for free. Council’s Helen Oram, Divisional Manager Environmental Consents, says the service is the latest in a series designed to make it easier for customers to obtain local private property information. “Private drainage plans can help identify where the drains on a particular property are and are essential prior to starting any drainage work.”

Early morning swimming sessions McKenzie Baths in Petone is looking to establish lane swimming sessions for early morning swimmers. Keen swimmers can now buy an ‘Iceberg Ticket’ for $95, which will give them lane-swimming access between 6am – 8:30am on weekday mornings, and cover the three summer months.

No sport page Sports coverage was held over this week to make way for the Santa Parade. Our regular sports page will be back next week.

Final issue for 2013 Chris Boon brought the release date of the Georgie Pie forward.

Next week is the final issue of the Wainuiomata News for 2013. The paper will resume delivery on January 8, 2014.

Programme gets men back to work By Rhiannon McConnell Four men have returned to work after completing the Tama Tu Tama Ora Maori Mans development group one year proragmme. Programme co-facilitator Reo Va’a says they have seen amazing results. “It’s been huge since these guys haven’t actually held a job for five to 20 years.” The programme, which started in 2011, aims to confront and deal with family violence. “It is going really well,” Reo says. Twenty men graduated on Friday at a ceremony that included their families. Reo says they had men from different gangs sit in the same room together and put their differences aside for the sake of their families. “All that [gang affiliation] is left at the front door.” Families heard testimonies from the men at the graduation. But Reo says the real tests begin now. “The journey for them starts now.” He says they will not be perfect but now they have tools and safety plans to cope. Another success of the programme are three families that have been taken off the

Child Youth and Family list. Reo says that one of his highlights was seeing a father and son complete the programme together (pictured above with their family).

Reo says there is a big cultural component to the programme and they include haka and karakia. The programme was run by Kokiri Marae and co-facilitated by Wayne Glen.

Spinal injury prompted national success By Rhiannon McConnell Spinal injuries lead to a born and breed Wainuiomata musician taking up Bikram Yoga and being placing number two in Australia. Thirty-four year old Cameron Pickford recently competed in the Queensland Regional Yoga Asana Championships where he placed number one in

Queensland. He will now go on to represent Queensland in the 2014 National Yoga Asana championships in Melbourne in February. “The sense of accomplishment is very moving. I love the fact that I haven’t even scratched the surface of what’s possible with competing and my practice. “There’s still so much more I know I’m capable of,” the Bikram Yoga instructor says. Cameron grew up in Wainuiomata but moved to Brisbane fifteen years ago where he has lived since. He began practicing Bikram Yoga three years ago after suffering from scholiosis, an unnatural curvature of the spine, for several years. He says he was attracted to Bikram Yoga because he had tried everything and spent thousands of dollars to heal his back. His condition had forced him to give up his profession as a musician and he

lived with constant pain. Within a year of practicing Bikram Yoga regularly, an MRI scan confirmed he was free from all symptoms. “My first class I could tell this Yoga works. The first breathing exercise my neck felt relief immediately.” Cameron says he hopes to become a world yoga champion and an Olympic yoga champion, if the sport gets recognised as an official Olympic sport. Thirty-one competitors performed at the Queensland Regional Yoga Asana Championships, which were held in Southbank Convention on October 27. The top three competitors placed in the male and female divisions of the Queensland Regional Yoga Asana Championships will compete at the 2014 Australian National Yoga Asana Championships in Melbourne on February 9, 2014. The 2014 International Yoga Asana Championships will be held in London in Summer 2014.

“Definitely. Lots of cameras and community support might help.”

“I know there is a problem, but I haven’t seen anything lately. The kids must be growing up!”

“Heck yeah, and everyone knows it. You really can’t prevent it. You can slow it down but not stop it.”

Disappointed at Wood Hatton grounds

Santa parade

Dear Ed, The first Wainuiomata Community Board meeting for this triennium was held on Wednesday, November 27. Congratulations to Karl Dickson, who was elected as Chair and Terry Stallworth as Deputy Chair. I think it is important that members of the constituency are present and involved.

Dear Ed, It was great to have the Santa Parade on the weekend. Even though the weather was bad, it finally got me into the Christmas spirit. Thank you to the organisers for going ahead with the parade, it brought some much needed joy and festivity to the community.

People have time to speak to items on the agenda within a three-minute timeframe. This was my first time at a community board meeting and I was satisfied with the decisions that were made. I have a lot of fond memories at the closed Wood Hatton Primary School. I am quite upset with the state of the grounds. All the classrooms are

defaced and the swimming pool building has been broken into. Perhaps squatters are taking advantage of this unoccupied wasteland. I hope the owners do something about it as it devalues the area. It could have been used as a public park or housing developments. Regards, Gabriel Tupo

Be aware of buglers this Christmas A message from your Neighbourhood Support Co-ordinator Dawn McKinley By Dawn McKinley Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all from Wainuiomata Neighbourhood Support. As Christmas nears, take care and reduce the risk of being burgled by setting up or joining a Neighbourhood Support Group in your area and advertising the fact by displaying Neighbourhood Support signs and stickers. Make sure doors, windows and other entry and exit points from your house have good quality, effective catches and locks - deadlocks if possible. Get into the habit of always using these locks. Always lock doors and windows at night, if you’re out in the garden or going out or away. Don’t leave a door key hidden outside - burglars know all the places to look. Keep garden sheds and garages secure and lock away tools and ladders. Have an alarm system professionally installed and consider having it monitored by a reputable security company. Install sensor lights on access paths or around main external doors. Install a ‘peep-hole’ in a front door so you know who’s visiting you. Trim trees or remove shrubbery which might ‘hide’ a burglar’s activity. Get to know your neighbours and develop plans to deal with problems or suspicious activity. Exchanging phone numbers or emergency contact details is a good start. If you’re going away, neighbours can collect your mail or newspaper and make your place look occupied, for example by turning on lights, parking a vehicle in your driveway, 04 564 0002 027 4458 940 leith.gunn@xtra.co.nz

hanging washing on your line or mowing lawns. Take photographs of jewellery and record serial numbers of tools and electronic items. Consider placing “Beware of Dog” signs on gates or fences. If you have an answer phone, don’t record a message that suggests you’re out or alone. Police are always interested in suspicious activity. Don’t hesitate to call Police to report something out of the ordinary and, if you see a crime being committed, call 111. For more information contact your Neighbourhood Support Coordinator, Dawn McKinley by calling into the police station Monday-Friday between 9am-1pm or call me on 027 777 3321.

Mayor Ray Wallace A year in review... Firstly congratulations to the new Community Board who have been sworn in and had their first meeting together. Congratulations to new Board chairman Karl Dickson and new Board members Rima Workman, Josh Briggs and Richard Sinnott.

As the year draws to an end it is always a great time for reflection. It has been a good year for Wainuiomata but we have certainly had our challenges as a community. It is the “strong community spirit” that brings us through those challenges.

They are now joined by Councillors Margaret Willard and Campbell Barry. I believe it will be Next year is going to be an exciting year for exciting times ahead for the new Board. Wainuiomata so watch this space.

I wish to acknowledge to the work past Chairman I wish your and your family the blessing of the Terry Stallworth who remains on the board and festive season and all the very best for 2014. will continue to serve the community as deputy Take care, be kind to each other. chair. Contact As Mayor, I am keen to see the Community Board Phone: 04 570 6666 undertake a real leadership role to engage with Email: ray.wallace@huttcity.govt.nz local residents and talk about the community’s vision for the future which I believe is very bright. Read my blog… One area for the Community Board to take a lead in is emergency management and community preparedness. The earthquakes earlier this year were clearly a wake up call for us all. We all need to ensure we are prepared for such events and that you have plans in place to ensure your families safety. Well done to Wainuiomata Rotary and all the volunteers who helped make the parade a great day along with the community markets. Despite the weather everyone had a great time.

Seeing my girl Ellie having fun.

I don’t have a favourite style but enjoy most music.

What’s your pet hate?

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

A saying you like to live by?

I have two baby teeth that never fell out.

What’s next on your wish list? Having some relaxing time early next year with my wife and our daughter.

Hard year for Stroke Club

Room three from Pukeatua School made gifts and sung for the Stroke Club.

The Wainuiomata Stroke Club finished an unsettled year with a celebration last Thursday. Club president Christine Johnston says the year has had its ups and downs. The club had four members pass away this year and two more have moved away to rest homes. “It has been quite a sad year.” Christine says it highlights the fact Wainuiomata needs a rest home. “It would just make such a

difference to them [the elderly] and their families.” Christine says the club has had three venue changes since the RSA closed earlier this year, but they have now found a permanent home at the Fire Station. “It’s the perfect size.” Christine says next year they are hoping for a more settled year and better health. RIGHT: Stroke Club president Christine Johnston with Rene Kelly.

Thank you for your support during 2013! We wish you a Safe and Happy Christmas, and a Great Summer!

Start Christmas off with a BANG! DIY Crackers If you’re wanting to make a real impression when hosting Christmas at your place this year, what better way than to create your own crackers, filled with whatever you want. They are easy to make and put your own twist on as you fill them with chocolates, little gifts and your own jokes—the choice is yours. You’ll need - A bon bon kit (from Spotlight) - Plain and coloured A4 paper - Small confetti (use a hole punch to punch out coloured paper to make your own)

- Sellotape - Double-sided sticky sheets cut into hearts or other shapes (available from Spotlight) - String - Your joke on a piece of paper - Scissors Step one Place the 'snapper' in the cracker kit inside the cardboard roll Step two Roll up the roll inside the plain white paper. Secure with sticky tape.

Step three Bunch up the paper at one end and tie with the string, being sure to include the snapper and the ends hanging out past the string. Step four From the open end, fill the roll with confetti, your rolled-up joke, gift, chocolate, etc. Bunch the paper up at this end with the snapper sticking out and tie with string. Step five Cut a strip of coloured paper with scissors, roll it around the cracker and secure with tape. Step six

Stick on your double-sided sticky heart or other shape on the front of the cracker. Step seven Sprinkle confetti over the sticky shape and gently pat into place. Place on plates and get ready to start your Christmas feast off with a bang!
