By Rhiannon McConnell Wainuiomata resident and top chef Marc Soper has won the Lunch Category of this year’s New Zealand Vegetarian Dish Challenge. The Wellesley Boutique Hotel head chef won with his twice- baked roast pumpkin and cheddar soufflé with winter vegetable salad and walnut soil. Judges noted that there were “lots of good technical skills with the soufflé, and that the beetroot gel and walnut soil made for a very seasonal vegetable salad”. Marc says it is his small team that encourage him. “Inspiration is something I get from my staff because I see how hard they work.” Continued page 2

By Rhiannon McConnell An area popular among swimmers could have high levels of contamination over dry periods, a new report says. The On the beaches, 2012/13 report by the Greater Wellington Regional Council released in July, rated the Wainuiomata River as being ‘poor’ when it came to the quality of its water. The report states that “during dry weather conditions, when contact recreation is most likely, the highest risk of microbiological contamination was identified at Hutt River at Melling Bridge and Wainuiomata River at Richard Prouse Park”.

Steven Tetlow’s pony Jelly nearly died after ingesting a long piece of plastic that he believes was illegally dumped.

Sick Jelly

By Rhiannon McConnell A Wainuiomata man says illegal dumping on his road is killing his animals. Electronics engineer Steven Tetlow says someone is illegally dumping grass, plastic and other items outside his property on Upper Fizherbert Road which his animals can then eat through the fence. “I’ve lost three of my companions now because of this kind of thing.” A few weekends ago Steven noticed his pony was lying on her side in agony.

YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER

Goodbye and thank you Rhiannon McConnell It has been a great privilege working on the Wainuiomata News this year, so it is with some sadness that I say goodbye. As I write this, the amazing stories you have shared with me are running through my mind. I joined the Wainuiomata News after finishing my graduate diploma in journalism last year and have enjoyed being back in the community I grew

up in. At its heart, I believe journalism should keep power to account but also celebrate community, support people when they are down and bring people closer together. I will take the knowledge and experience I have gained this year into my future endeavours. Thank you for all the incredible support you have offered me this year. I could not have done it with-

out our roving photographers Daryl New and Dan Taylor, Councilors Campbell Barry and Margaret Willlard, Mayor Ray Wallace, the Wainuiomata Community Board, Rima Workman, the Police, the Fire Brigade, Wainuiomata High School, all the amazing primary schools and so many more. Thank you for teaching me and showing me how important community can be.

New cars for health service taking on Hill Road Access Homehealth is taking itshelp for clients to new heights, negotiating the steep inclines of the Wainuiomata Hill thanks to a new fleet of Toyota Corollas gifted by Toyota New Zealand. The steep Wainuiomata Hill Road has made it difficult for the healthcare provider to reach rural clients but the gift of 25 Toyota Corollas for a year is helping Access Homehealth provide better care. Access’s Wellington-based community nurse Tineke Snow says the Corollas have made a big difference to the services provided. “Our clients rely on us being there to help when they need us and we work very hard to make sure they can do just that. While our old vehicles have worked hard for the organisation for a number of years, some are not as well suited to take on the more challenging roads,” she says. “That is where the new Corollas really make a big difference to both client and carer, providing reassurance that we can respond whenever and wherever we are needed. We don’t have to worry about whether the car can handle the journey.” Working with clients spanning from Upper Hutt to the Rimu-

takas and into rural Wainuiomata, Tineke has put more than 10,000km of road behind her new Corolla, and in the process has helped hundreds of clients to enjoy a better quality of life. “The added comfort isn’t just great for me on the long drives. I recently met with a client who urgently needed to see a doctor but had nobody to take him. While we usually don’t transport our clients, knowing the Corolla would give him a safe, comfortable ride to the clinic gave me the peace of mind to help.” Tineke says the new fleet has also seen savings for the organisation, which relies on funding from local DHBs, ACC and the Ministry of Health, thanks to fuel efficiencies. The economy of the Corolla means Access is able to put more money towards the important stuff such as continued improvements to the service its clients receive. Toyota New Zealand General Manager of Sales and Operations Steve Prangnell says they provide the cars as a recognition of the number of organisations doing great work in Kiwi communities. “New Zealand is full of great charities and not for profits like Access that devote their time to

Tineke Snow is a recipient of a new car.

improving quality of life for many Kiwis. Unfortunately, these organisations don’t always have the resources they need, so we’re doing our part to lend a hand by providing cars that make their job easier.” Access Homehealth chief executive Graeme Titcombe says the cars are a welcome enhancement for his fleet. “Having a modern, reliable fleet is essential in ensuring our nurses can carry out their role of helping people live independently in their communities. “Our vehicles clock up a

reasonably high mileage over a short time. To be able to replace many of them with these not only very smart looking, but also economical vehicles, is a real bonus for us.” Access provides home care to around 14,000 sick, disabled, palliative and injured New Zealanders each year. “In a job with few perks, small improvements matter and are the things that can make or break a working day,” Tineke says.

Collection to fund youth development programmes By Rhiannon McConnell Wainuiomata has collected over 82 kilograms of obsolete coins and bank notes as part of a project that funds education and development programmes for Kiwi kids. Riddiford Lions Club president Robbie Hinde says they have collected money from 54 different countries and even collected $182 of current currency. “It’s gone very well.” Across New Zealand, twenty tonnes, the equivalent to three elephants, 30 cattle or 4000 cats has been collected by Lions Clubs for the Heads Up for Kids project. This weighty milestone, made up of old New Zealand money, decimal and pre decimal, and foreign currency, old and current, has been reached with the help of New Zealanders across the country digging out their unwanted cash and donating at various collection points such as Resene paints or to Lions Clubs. The money, collected and transported to Wellington by project sponsor Fastway Couriers, is sorted and processed for legal tender then used to fund education and development programmes for Kiwi kids. Lion Club member and Heads Up for Kids currency processor Roy Peterson says they are very happy with the result.

“We’re delighted to reach this milestone – It just goes to show that every little old coin donated can make a big difference. “One of the great things about Heads Up for Kids, it turns something people don’t use into memorable and life changing experiences for young people, Head of Currency at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Brian Hayr says it is an excellent way of recycling too. “Old coins returned to the Reserve Bank are sold for scrap. It is better for the country to sell the copper and nickel in old coins than have them sitting idle in peoples’ homes.” Brian says the Reserve Bank of New Zealand estimates there is more than $100 million of pounds, shillings and pence, old decimal coins and banknotes sitting around in drawers or cupboards in households throughout New Zealand. “There is a large amount of old currency that has not been returned to The Reserve Bank and increasing numbers of the new lower value coins that appear to be stored by households. Even if only a small percentage of this currency is recovered it could have significant value,” Hayr says.

Kev the Wandering Kiwi is back for 2014 and looking to join families in exploring our regional parks. There are four, free guided walks with Kev, which are suitable for people of all ages and fitness, including buggies and grandparents.

King of Less WINZ in Wainuiomata the Hill By Dave Crampton If you are seeking work with Work and Income assistance, Wainuiomata is not the place to go. You’d be better off elsewhere. Figures released under the Official Information Act show that of the 495 beneficiaries registered with the Wainuiomata WINZ office who found full-time work in the 15 months until September, fewer than 25 were assisted into work by Work and Income. The rest found jobs themselves. According to information released with the figures, WINZ officials have no record of how much their placements earn, or even if they are still working just weeks after their benefits are cancelled. “The information is not held by the Ministry,” Work and Income’s deputy chief executive Debbie Power says. “The Ministry does not record specific details of a client’s employment once they have stopped receiving a benefit.” Ministry of Social Development Regional Commissioner Louise Waaka says Work and Income provides a range of practical support to help get people into work. She says work brokers liaise closely with businesses to list vacancies and then match clients with suitable skills to those positions. Case managers help people to compile or update their CVs and provide job search tips. However, she says many jobseekers on benefit self-manage their own job search. “Besides getting help from us they’ll

By Dave Crampton If you have eaten too much ham and trifle at Christmas parties last month, you now have a chance to work some of it off, thanks to an initiative from the Hutt City Council. The Hutt’s new summer event is the “king of the hill” event - a 5 kilometre walk or run over the Wainuiomata Hill during the Sunday of Wellington Anniversary weekend. The event, initially an idea from Ken Laban when he was a Hutt City Councillor, will start at 9am outside the former Griffins factory and head up and over the Wainuiomata hill, finishing at Queen Street reserve, where there will be food stalls, music and family entertainment. While the event may sound a bit mad, council spokesperson Emma McCleary emphasised that only 2 kilometres of the course is uphill and those who live in Wainuiomata will be able to get a free shuttle to the start. Those who live in the Hutt Valley will be shuttled over the hill at the end of the event. “It’s going to be lots of fun – everybody’s been enthusiastic,” she says. The Council intends to hold the event annually, and Ms McCleary says it will only get bigger in coming years. “Hopefully it will be as big as Round the Bays. We are looking at making it one of our bigger events.” As well as a brilliant day out you could be rewarded with cash prizes for The Professionals first female and male home, vouchers from iRIDE and Westfield and spot prizes like a $1000 Air New Zealand travel voucher. Entry fee for adults is $20, with a $10 fee for those between five and 18. Children under five years are free. Entries are limited to 1000 for the inaugural event and close January 15. Registrations can be made online at www.kingofthehill.co.nz

register at recruitment companies, they’ll approach employers directly about vacancies and they’ll contact their networks to see if work’s available, but we’re here to help if they need any extra support.” Ms Waaka says nationally, from July 15 to the end of September, over 15,000 sole parents and Jobseekers have moved off benefit and into work since the reforms were introduced. Over the same period for the Wainuiomata service centre, on average 10 people a week moved off benefit and into work. “Our Wainuiomata staff are helping more people and into jobs and we’ll continue to do all we can to get people into work.” While there may well be some discussions, there is not much job-matching happening. There are few job vacancies advertised by WINZ in Lower Hutt – but more than 1700 beneficiaries were registered with the Wainuiomata WINZ

office, and even more in the Lower Hutt office. Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard says while there are a lack of job vacancies in Wainuiomata, it is “clearly a concern” that so few are being placed into work, while others find work themselves. “It’s a sign that something is not working in working with communication between WINZ and beneficiaries.” Most beneficiaries have been on a benefit for longer than two years, and nearly a fifth of jobseekers registered in Wainuiomata have been on a benefit for more than 10 years “I`m quite surprised at that,” Mr Mallard says. “They should be seen at least once a month – as part of a course, or by a Case Manager, otherwise they are effectively abandoned.” Other WINZ offices don’t fare much better. In the Newtown and Kilbirnie offices, just 10 percent of the 450 beneficiaries in each office who found full time work had WINZ assistance. It was a little better in Johnsonville, with 97 of the 493 beneficiaries who found work doing so with WINZ assistance – and in the Wellington Central office, nearly a third found work with WINZ assistance. Around 40 per cent of jobs listed with Work and Income require applicants to pass a preemployment drug test. While none have had sanctions, it is unknown how many have been tested as results are not centrally accessible, Ms Power said in the official response. “No Kilbirnie, Wellington, Newtown, Wainuiomata and Johnsonville clients have failed a drug test or been sanctioned.”

Research teams move to Victoria By Dave Crampton Two new specialist innovative research teams were established at Victoria University on Monday to take up some of the fundamental science work previously conducted by Callaghan Innovation, a Crown Entity set up last year to encourage and promote innovative marketing. The Ferrier Research Institute, named after former Victoria University Professor of Chemistry, Robin Ferrier, will work with industry partners, developing drugs and related manufacturing technologies for treating cancer, microbial infections, and inflammatory illnesses. The Robinson Research Institute will work with local manufacturers to engineer new products based on advances in superconductivity and other electromagnetic technologies. It is named after Dr Bill Robinson, inventor of the lead rubber bearing seismic isolation device. He received an Honorary Doctorate in Science from Victoria University in 1995. Around 55 Callaghan Innovation staff will transfer to Victoria from Gracefield with the move. Victoria University Vice-Chancellor

Professor Pat Walsh says Victoria is committed to supporting the late professor Sir Paul Callaghan’s vision of achieving greater commercialisation of innovation. “This transfer is certainly complementary to that vision . These are two world class science teams that will add to the University’s growing expertise and reputation in these important areas.” Science and Innovation Minister Steven Joyce says Victoria will greatly strengthen their capabilities in biomedical science and engineering. “Some of New Zealand’s most renowned research scientists will strengthen the university’s research performance and ability to provide top quality research-led degrees for their students.” Wellington Employers’ Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Raewyn Bleakley welcomed the announcement as great news, saying both institutes’ research will place them at the forefront on this work in the world. “The smart city just got smarter. Having some of our most renowned scientists working on one campus will result in huge benefits all round.”

Staying safe is more than just staying afloat. Have you seen Maritime NZ’s latest lifejacket adverts featuring ‘80’s TV cop Joe Bro? It carries the very important message that lifejackets will not save lives unless they are being worn. Most accidents occur suddenly with no warning – there may be no time to grab a lifejacket, and it’s extremely difficult to put on a lifejacket in the water. Many boaties drown less than 200 metres from shore. While wearing lifejackets in small boats is very important it is not the only step you can take in keeping yourself safe this summer. • • • • •

Always check the weather forecast and keep an eye out for changes while you are on the water. Carry at least one waterproof means of communication. Make sure your boat and all its equipment are in good condition. Understand the rules of the road and other bylaws like the 500 ton rule and 5 knot speed restrictions. Avoid alcohol, it can impair your decision making as well as increase your risk of hypothermia.

New group to create more sporting events By Rhiannon McConnell A new group aims to bring more community sports events to Wainuiomata. Sport Wainuiomata Incorporated project manager Terina Cowan says they want to make sure sporting events happen on a regular basis and are accessible to everyone. “We remove barriers to sport. “That’s our biggest outcome.” Terina says they have a lot of people who can volunteer their skills and time but they are lacking on the admin side. She says they aim to fix that with the new group. Terina says the sports they offer will be local, affordable and fun. “If we are successful it’s because they [the community] are calling for this.” Wainuiomata High School sports coordinator Peter Cowan says Twilight Netball was the groups first project and after its success they decided to take it further. Peter says it will be great people who played sports in school but then do not have an op-

portunity to afterwards. “For some people it reignites the pleasure to play.” This year the group plan to run three events, including a Waitangi sports day, to see what people like and want to do. After that, they will set a yearly programme. Peter says they aim to create a fun environment that is hassle-free. “It’s just show up and play - no worries.” The group has partnered with Wainuiomata High School and will be using their sporting facilities. Peter says the partnership makes it all possible. “We wouldn’t be able to do it without them.” At this stage the group is seeking funding and support for its lift off. One of the initiatives the group provides is the opportunity for officials to be paid and get qualified. Terina says this is a great opportunity for people who love sports.

Family team: Nelly Cowan, Peter Cowan & Terina Cowan are part of the new Sport Wainuiomata Inc group.

Mayor looks to the future As this is the first article for 2014, may I start by wishing you and your family a Happy New Year and may 2014 be a great year for us all. Reflecting on 2013 it was a good year. It certainly had its challenges but as a community and city I think we came through with flying colours. A strong community is one that looks after the wellbeing of all citizens particularly the most vulnerable. Wainuiomata is a community second to none for “Community Spirit” and I believe that spirit is alive and well. In 2013 we saw a new Community Board elected and I know they are dedicated to working closely with the community to achieve positive outcomes for us all. Council in 2013 has set itself goals to

see growth in the city and we have put plans in place through our Urban Growth Strategy to see that happen. It was a year of consultation with the community, particularly concerning the annual plan and local government reform. Our Business stimulus policy has bought in over $200 million of new business over the past 15 months and we intend to continue on that success. This year we will see more opportunities for growth in housing in Wainuiomata and I am working closely with the management of the Wainuiomata Mall to ensure we see major improvements to the mall. Council, in response to those improvements, will be committing and undertaking improvements to Queen Street and the Strand.

We are committed to the local business community and the concept of “Shop Local”. Together were are going to ensure we have a more pleasant and inviting shopping environment for locals. Council has committed to funding a new Development Plan for Wainuiomata along with a new promotions and marketing plan. Our community has so much to offer and the opportunity for growth in business, population and jobs is real. Council is fully committed to achieving that for Wainuiomata. I am really excited about the future. As a local resident, I am proud of the place we all call home and I look forward to working with you all as we make Wainuiomata and even better place to live.

Mayor Ray Wallace

Happy ending for storm damaged property

Sarah Thrasher, founder of the Saddle Club in Wainuiomata.

Saddle club well received By Emily Elliott A dream to make horse riding accessible for all children came true when Sarah Thrasher opened a Saddle Club last year. Her goal has been to make horse riding a realistic opportunity for children and families who can't afford to own a horse. The community has received the new saddle club well, and Sarah says she has yet to receive bad feedback. She is already doing weekly lessons. "In this little amount of time, the girls who have been coming have really stepped up," she says. "I've had heaps of people in the community offer help." Sarah has teenage volunteers who willingly help at the stables.

"I go to the supermarket and girls come up to me and give me hugs!" She is also planning a summer holiday programme for January and February. This year Sarah will be focusing on resurfacing the riding arena, to prodive for all year riding. She has also started to make trails in the four acres of back paddock and bush she has. "I'm up there with the loppers! "I'm hoping to start using it this year for trail rides," Sarah says. Sarah says she isn't running the stables to make money, but just enough to pay for the horses themselves. "I'm definitely planning on this being long-term."

By Rhiannon McConnell Visiting Fred and Sylvia Pike’s beautiful garden you would not believe that just six months ago two trees had destroyed the back fence, the garage and part of their house. Today, 78-year-old Fred Pike says it is hard for him to remember what the garden looked like before. “I can’t imagine it.” The fence has been rebuilt, the roofs have been repaired and the two remaining trees have been pulled out to prevent future problems. The result is the Pikes now have a bigger back yard and a good view of the cricket field. After living in the home for 35 years, Sylvia says it is taking a while to get use to the new view. A keen gardener, Fred rescued two of his rose bushes to re-plant in the new garden. While insurance paid for the fence,

garage and home repairs, Fred decided to pay for the trees to be removed and to replace the roof of his home. “We helped ourselves.” “They did the bare minimum.” The couple awoke one Thursday night in June to two massive trees falling on their house. The Macrocarpa trees came down in the high winds and storm experienced across Wellington. Fred and Sylvia woke at 1am to the sound of the first large tree falling. Fred says it was like dynamite going off. He says they were lucky the trees fell on an angle and not straight otherwise he believes they would have died. This is not the first time the couple has had problems with the trees bordering their property. In a storm six years ago a group of the Macrocarpa trees fell in the other direction towards the croquet field.

Damage to Fred Pikes property incurred from the storm in June 2013.

John Morrisey and Campbell Barry have worked hard to receive the funding for William Jones Park but are still waiting for work to progress.

Park still awaits repairs By Rhiannon McConnell As the summer sports season starts, William Jones Park is still waiting for the repair work that was promised last year. The long battle for funding for William Jones Park was won when the Hutt City Council agreed to put $40,000 into fixing drainage problems on the field. However, ex Rugby Club president John Morrisey says nothing has happened since. “We have got to get it up and running.” He says the repairs were supposed to be done before Christmas. “All they have done is mow the lawn.” The club has been fighting for funding for four years.

The club offered to put up $20,000 but they now suspect it will cost less to fix. The main problem reported was the ground was saturated with water and would not drain through the current soil. John says the club only gets one game a week, if they are lucky, because the grounds turn to mud. He says kids miss out on playing. Morrisey hopes the new drainage will help take the club back to its glory days and allow for three games on a Saturday. The funding was granted after a submission to the council’s draft annual plan. The original estimate to fix the grounds was $60-89, but the new estimate is around $40,000.

After: Fred Pike stands in front of his newly built fence and landscaped garden.

Moomoo on the mend Last year we followed the journey of Wainuiomata cat, Moo Moo, who had an arrow from a crossbow fired through his head in October. Moo Moo was operated on in Palmerston North, and was quiet for the first few weeks back home. Owner Donna Ferrari says that Moo Moo is nearly back to normal now. "He's back to waking me up at 5am, and he's back to snuggling with me. "He's still quite active." Thanks to Random Acts of Kindness, the Ferrari family had help with the vet bill.

Moo Moo - lucky to be alive.
