Farm considers options CLOE WILLETTS Lindale Farm owner Virginia Wilton is appealing to the public for help after being asked to vacate more than 60 per cent of the farm walk’s grazing paddocks in just six days. Home to around 200 rescue animals, Lindale Farm has until today [although that might be extended two more days] to remove shelters and water troughs, shift animals and re-fence remaining paddocks. The loss of Lindale Farm’s bottom paddocks comes as Dementia — Alzheimers New Zealand begins landscaping for its new dementia specialty ward, located at the previous Whitiriea Polytechnic campus. Virginia, who opened the animal welfare farm four years

ago, says she has no issue with Dementia — Alzheimers New Zealand reclaiming its land, though six days notice has put great strain on the volunteerrun attraction. ‘‘It’s their land and they’ve got every right to take it back,’’ she says. ‘‘The ward is great for Kapiti. What we’re in a panic about is what to do.’’ Virginia says their best option is to re-fence, re-model and create new paths, and ensure no animals will be sold or re-homed. ‘‘The whole reason most of these animals are here is because they have nowhere else to go. We take rescue animals because they’re old, sick or decrepit.’’ ‘‘This is their home and they will stay where they are loved and cared for.’’

In the last minute rush to build new fences for a range of animals including five

donkeys and three ponies, Virginia is calling on locals to help by donating a fence post. ‘‘People have asked how they can assist and sponsoring a fence post is the easiest way to help modify the paddock and still retain this here in Kapiti.’’ ‘‘We can do a post for $30 and will include a plague with the person’s name on it.’’ ’They have just been offered a digger to use and assistance from local business Goodmans. ‘‘We run on an absolute shoestring here and put our own money into this place.’’ ‘‘If people like what I do, or if I’ve ever done anything nice for them over the last four years, now’s the time to help us.’’

Use of image annoys artist Artist Bodhi Vincent had quite a surprise when sitting outside a cafe recently. He saw a vehicle carrying a photograph of an anti-violence sculpture he had made called The Nurturing Hand. The sculpture, which is located by the Kapiti police station, features a large hand with a baby in the palm. But on closer inspection of the vehicle, Mr Vincent saw the photograph had been made to advertise an anti-abortion viewpoint. Mr Vincent wasn’t happy. ‘‘The sculpture in question was never conceived to contribute to the polemics surrounding the abortion issue. ‘‘In a free and democratic society, we are all entitled to our points of view however in a circumstance such as this I found the appropriation of this image, well intentioned as it may have been, both disturbing and arrogant in the unauthorised and flagrant use of this image as an icon in the abortion debate for or against the practice. ‘‘Whether it’s legal or not I’m unsure but it certainly strikes me as unethical. ‘‘It is for this reason I feel drawn to put my own views into the public arena as the sculptor of the piece. ‘‘In a world that I regard as sacred, the rapacious exploitation of all and

SUSPICIOUS FIRE MIXED MESSAGE: Bodhi Vincent is annoyed an image of his anti-violence sculpture is being used to advertise antiabortion. PHOTO: DAVID HAXTON / KAP080114DHHAND everything by us humans never ceases to amaze me. ‘‘Each and every born human is a dripping carbon tap and one way or another adds to the burden that the planet has to bear in a time when the ice caps are melting and the fragile web of life itself is threatened by our presence here I think it’s time when we all seriously consider the spiralling population of our species whose apparent lust for monetary profit fuels our narcissistic greed for resources to exploit regardless of the dire consequences for all species and life itself.


‘‘In a time when our jails and mental health facilities are overburdened with casualties of the consumer machine, we have to make a stand for life not just human life and if we can’t birth humans into a loving supportive family and community then perhaps some hard decisions may have to be made. ‘‘Many people who have experienced the trauma of having to go through having an abortion have enough guilt and shame to carry as it is and we must look deeply into what compassion really means in today’s world.’’

Council is not ‘‘taking over’’ the Clean Technology Centre in Otaki, as suggested by a headline in last week’s Kapiti News, Mayor Ross Church says. ‘‘The Clean Technology Park consists of the Clean Technology Centre, which opened in 2010, and an adjacent building, which will open shortly. ‘‘The Clean Technology Centre is managed by Grow Wellington. It is not managed by council. ‘‘Council is, however, taking over the lease for the second building from the Clean Technology Trust. This will involve attracting new tenants and providing services to support the growth of businesses.’’ He said the confusion was understandable given the similarity in the names and mutual links between the development sites.

Wi-fi use in schools questioned ANN READING and DAVID HAXTON A Te Horo father says he has been blown away with support from around the world after raising possible health risks stemming from high levels of wi-fi usage. ‘‘Not lay people but scientists and biologists from universities,’’ Damon Wyman says. Wi-fi is a technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or connect to the internet wirelessly using radio waves. He believes the new promotion of bring-your-own-devices (BYOD) by the Ministry of Education as a learning enhancer that can unite home and school, is the potential danger. He says iPads and tablets that can be used in school then taken home for homework rely on wi-fi and it is the ensuing proliferation of router activity that brings classroom radio wave saturation to a concerning level. His 10-year-old son Ethan died from brain cancer and Mr Wyman thinks a wi-fi capable iPod his son was using at home might have contributed to his son’s fatal tumours. Ethan was diagnosed with tumours three months after he was given a wi-fi connected iPod and died less than a year later. Mr Wyman said he discovered Ethan had been falling asleep with the iPod he had saved up to buy under his pillow and even though it had been on standby, it was still emitting bursts as it tried to connect to the router. Ethan had also been exposed to wi-fi devices since infancy. Mr Wyman said there was no proof the device caused the cancer but it was a bit of a coincidence hence he felt a precautionary approach to wi-fi in the school was

needed. ‘‘Wi-fi has never been tested and proved to be safe. ‘‘I asked if they [Te Horo Schoo] could remove wi-fi from the whole school. ‘‘Myself and a number of parents have offered to hardwire the whole school with a duplex communication system, which is information coming and going simultaneously. ‘‘Wi-fi only transmits in one direction at a time.’’ A statement from Te Horo School’s Board of Trustees said based on information sourced from various authorities it believed ‘‘wi-fi does not pose a health risk to staff or students’’. The board agreed to switch off wi-fi in the junior school in term one this year but retain wi-fi in the senior school. The board also agreed to review BYOD early in term one. School principal Craig Vidulich said the school’s junior classrooms do not use any wi-fi devices. ‘‘Each (junior school) classroom has four PCs which are hard wired. There will be no change to learning in these classrooms from previous years.’’ He said Ministry of Health advisor scientist Martin Gledhill spent six hours in the school measuring wi-fi exposures and his report stated ‘‘All exposures were very low compared with the public exposure limit in New Zealand Standard’’. Mr Wyman says according to the international official information available, the New Zealand Standard is far too low. He recommends two websites for specific school related wi-fi information, they are and

Model railway trains are running again at Marine Gardens, Raumati Beach. Worksafe issued a prohibition notice on Kapiti Miniature Railway just before Christmas but lifted the notice on Thursday last week. The trains were running on Sunday and proved as popular as ever with a number of children and adults going for rides. WorkSafe chief inspector Alan Cooper said the operators have addressed the immediate safety concerns identified in an engineer’s report for WorkSafe. The principle issues were around track alignment and the integrity of the equipment used on the track, he said. ‘‘The operators have been very responsive to the safety concerns and have worked effectively to overcome them. ‘‘They’ve developed a robust and well-timed plan to address other less safety-critical issues and we will work with them to ensure the plan’s implemented.’’ ‘‘The engineer inspected the operation on Thursday and was entirely satisfied key issues have been dealt with and the threats to the safety of those using the railway have been removed so we have lifted the prohibition notice,’’ Mr Cooper said. Club spokesman Laurie Bason said there were a lot of positive comments on Sunday that the club was up and running again. ‘‘Hopefully all will be well from now on, unless somebody stands up again.’’ He said the biggest concern was if people, and it’s normally adults, lent out or stood up on the trains. The club was erecting a wind alert sign as a well as a sign advising people to remain seated and not to lean out. Another issued raised was regarding square posts on a retaining wall. The posts have

The operators have been very responsive to the safety concerns and have worked effectively to overcome them.

WWII site visit ‘humbling’ CLOE WILLETTS In a journey that fell on the 70th anniversary of an historic war battle, Jim Taylor travelled to the Pacific’s Mono Island in search of answers to an untold family chronicle. Mr Taylor, of Paraparaumu, who returned from the threeand-a-half-week visit in November last year, had been investigating the 1943 Battle for Mono and his father’s involvement as a frontline solider since 1995, following Norman Bentley Taylor’s death at 55. Having never provided details of the battle that liberated Mono Island and the Pacific, the World War II veteran left behind an honorable tale that over 70 years later is being told by his second youngest son. After scouring war records and books for details, Mr Taylor took his research one step further and endured a difficult and timely first trip to Mono Island in 2012, bringing him to the very ground his father stood on as a 23-year-old soldier. During his first trip, Mr Taylor realised the importance of the following year’s October 27 commemoration, and returned in 2013 to attend the significant 70th Battle for Mono anniversary memorial service. Taken aback by the simplistic yet ‘‘magical’’ lifestyle on Mono Island, which saw 40 New Zealand soldiers killed and 145 wounded in the war, Jim felt an instant connection with the island his father fought in as part of the 8th Brigade of the 3rd New Zealand Division, 2nd Expeditionary Force. In villages with broken footpaths, pot-holed roads, overcrowded public buses and shelters handcrafted from dried palm leaves, Mr Taylor spent the weeks searching for historical remnants and documenting island life. ‘‘As my boat came ashore for the first time, I was greeted by bullet holes in rocks at the beach where the New Zealand soldiers landed,’’ he said. ‘‘On the New Zealand soldiers’

arrival, Japanese soldiers had been hiding in the nearby hills firing at them, and caught a couple of their boats on fire.’’ Among visits to various landing fields, Mr Taylor was taken to a landmark overgrown with bush, which he said was about half the size of Paraparaumu, now little remains of a large airfield. Now existing as a leftover disarray of bomb craters and airplane wreckage, the airfield is one of many reminders of the battle that saw New Zealand help

eradicate the strong hold of Japanese soldiers over Mono. ‘‘After the battle, the Allied Forces bulldozed a lot of the leftover equipment and supplies into a big heap and set fire to it, before covering it with dirt.’’ During his most recent visit to Mono Island, also known as Treasury Island, Mr Taylor lost a stone in weight from extreme heat and food poisoning, which he said was minor when compared with what his father faced. ‘‘Most of the soldiers had

upset stomachs and malaria on top of that, while having to work hard, and would’ve lost more than quarter of their body weight.’’ While scouting the jungle, shifting heavy equipment and building airfields, the soldiers were drinking contaminated water on the battlefield from drums freshly emptied of diesel. ‘‘They weren’t getting any fresh food and were forced to eat from tins that were starting to rust and perforating.’’ ‘‘It was really tough and a lot of the men suffered for a long time with post-traumatic stress.’’ For a village without cars and power, and a population of around 900 now, that grew to about 15,000 during the war, visitors are an uncommon celebration. ‘‘The battle stands out when you go to the island and speak to the locals.’’ ‘‘It was humbling to be among them as a descendant of a WWII warrior.’’

As an honoured guest, Mr Taylor was invited by the village chief and pastor to walk as head of the men for the welcoming of visitors at the ceremony. ‘‘Although I was flattered, I did manage to convince them to let me walk at end of line, where I felt I belonged.’’ Mr Taylor said the anniversary service, held at the island’s main village of Falamai, was a moving occasion for all involved, consisting of commemoration speeches including his own two-minute piece, presentations, flag-raising and a memorial service. Handing over of bones also took place, discovered during the construction of a village clinic and strongly believed by locals to belong to three New Zealand soldiers. The treatment of the soldier’s remains held a significant place in the anniversary service, which Solomon Island Police Minister Chris Laore said highlighted the locals’ strong regard for New Zealand soldiers over the past 70 years. Currently in possession of the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force, the remains will be forensically examined to confirm their nationality. Present on the day were American, Japanese, New Zealand and Solomon High Commissions, including Acting New Zealand High Commissioner Sarah Wong, whose staff invited Mr Taylor to join them on their flight home so they could hear his remarkable story. On meeting Mrs Wong, Mr Taylor shook her hand as she introduced herself and replied simply, ‘‘Jim Taylor, Paraparaumu.’’ ‘‘That blew her away,’’ he laughed. During the journey that saw him gain the final chapters to his lengthy expedition, Mr Taylor said he felt closer to the father he lost when he was just 23. ‘‘It was absolutely worth it.’’ ‘‘Now the final step is to let the story be known, so lest we forget.’’

‘Small’ role big news for Kiwi actor


DAVID HAXTON Actor Jed Brophy was naturally curious when he got a text message saying he was going to have a great day. That was followed by a phone call from his casting agent who said she hoped he was sitting down. ‘‘She said ‘we’ve got a great offer, they want to know if you want to play the dwarf Nori in The Hobbit’.’’ Jed thought she was joking as he didn’t expect to be cast in the film despite various roles in The Lord of the Rings ranging from a black rider, a Rohan captain, and some orcs including Sharku/ Snaga. He was the last dwarf to be cast in The Hobbit, which has been developed into a trilogy. Jed, 50, who lives in Raumati South with his wife Yolande and two sons Riley and Sadwyn, says it was a privilege to work on such a prominent film and alongside many esteemed actors on a daily basis. ‘‘If it fell over tomorrow I kind of feel like I’ve done as much as I ever imagined I would do — not to say that it’s going to.’’ Filming for The Hobbit was done over a shorter time frame than The Lord of the Rings. ‘‘We started up in Matamata and worked our way down the island. ‘‘We were doing two to three days in each place and then moving on.’’ It was a long, exhausting yet enjoyable process. ‘‘I didn’t think we would work harder than we did on The Lord of the Rings. ‘‘But you have to if you’re going to do a film of this kind of volume. ‘‘We had two to three hours of make up outside the shooting day which would be about 12 hours.’’ Working alongside director Sir Peter Jackson was cool. ‘‘There is not a lot of stress on his sets because every single person who is there is meant to be there and is really good at their job. ‘‘Peter is a funny guy so when

it to be a diminishing return but a lot of the other guys did.’’ Jed liked the finished product although was a bit disappointed when some scenes were cut from the general release version. ‘‘Peter has always said to me the extended version is the one he makes for the fans — that’s got everything he would like in the film.’’ Jed, who grew up on a farm in Taihape, got into acting after he went Otago University with the intention of studying physical education. He took a keen interest in acting after taking drama as an outside paper which led to his enrolment at a drama school with the intention of teaching drama and physical education. But after graduating in 1988 and performing in a few plays, he didn’t go back to teaching. Jed says he was fortunate that

there were a number of playwrights who were writing plays for someone his age. ‘‘So I was able to hit the ground running playing lead parts in good plays.’’ His first film role was in Chunuk Bair, about New Zealand soldiers in Gallipoli. ‘‘While I was doing that I was doing a play with Stephen Sinclair who co-wrote Braindead with Peter Jackson and I got cast in that. ‘‘That was the beginning really of doing lots of films.’’ Jed has featured in a films such as King Kong, District 9, Second Hand Wedding and Heavenly Creatures, to name but a few. He has a busy year ahead including acting in An Unseasonable Fall of Snow at Batts Theatre with his son Riley from January 22 for eight days

before playing roles in two films, The Dead Room, and Mad Dog Quinn. Then he’s off overseas to do some Middle Earth fan conventions. His advice for budding actors was to find like-minded groups of friends to act with. ‘‘You can start on the ground floor and work your way up here but you do have to be seen. Get out there and get into some theatre or training class. Get a camera and start shooting stuff. ‘‘Don’t be held back by the idea you have to find someone professional to work with.’’

Ideas rolling in for ways round council talkfest I hope everyone has had an enjoyable New Year break. Let’s hope we get lots more barbecue weather in the next few weeks. Vicki and I spent some time planting tomatoes and herbs and spending time with family. I love tomatoes. To me they are a great symbol of summer, warm weather, and new growth. Before Christmas I floated the idea about ‘‘tidying up’’ public speaking time at council meetings. I suggested this for several reasons: that people are tired of other people using speaking time to push personal opinions which have no relevance to the meeting or to the people at the meeting; that a lot of time is taken up; but mainly because there are so many other ways for people to engage with council. People can phone council, call into the office, check the website, email council or email councillors. I’m often in the foyer chatting to people on an informal basis, and other councillors run clinics where they meet ratepayers. There are also the community boards. So there are lots of ways to engage with council without using public speaking time. I’ve had 25 formal responses to what I said before Christmas and lots of anecdotal discussion. Most (18) are encouraging council to ‘‘get on with the business’’ and not be distracted. Three have said they wish to continue

to have unfettered access to council via public speaking. Four have given very reasoned and sensible opinions about how to make the process better. That’s where we need to get to we need the process to work best for everyone. One further option which I intend to discuss with councillors when the opportunity arises, is to have informal clinics, maybe two or three days before council meetings, with perhaps two or three councillors at the meetings. This will give an opportunity for people to air issues, and will give council the opportunity to be prepared and able to advise ratepayers on the best way forward. One thing for sure; the openness and transparency which I and this council have stood for is not negotiable! ■ On a sobering note, the funeral last Friday of a staff member’s 11-month-old baby reminded me of how precious life is. Having recently lost my father-in-law at the age 83, and one of my best mates aged 55, I realise just how fragile we all are. Let’s hope that 2014 treats us all well.

Not to be proud of

Oh dear. I do hope you have misquoted the Mayor’s recent statement which appears to congratulate the council in coming up with ‘‘exactly the remedy the judge is suggesting’’ as a result of its own internal review of the coastal hazard lines ( Judge endorses LIM report rethink: Jan 8). Only the most naive person could fail to see the irony in the council finally taking the course of action it should have taken in the first place just before the High Court decision was released. As Justice Williams makes clear, the ‘‘problem’’’’ was that the council, at both administrative and governance level, failed to recognise the significance of the matter it was dealing with and failed to take the ‘‘sound approach’’ such matters warrant. The council took steps to review its approach only because a legal process was put in place at great cost to property owners and ratepayers. The council was under some duress, therefore, to find the ‘‘solution’’ to a problem created by its own inept, clumsy and amateurish response to the law. There is no room for self-congratulation in that, as I am sure the Mayor would have recognised. Justice Williams’ judgment is a timely reminder of the importance of council taking best practice approaches to the many sensitive matters it deals with. It is also a timely reminder of the need for councillors to safeguard the interests of district inhabitants by insisting the administration demonstrates the proper levels of accountability to the elected governance body. If they cannot do this, then we can look for more debacles until control of local matters is transferred to a regional body, the governance of which will be in the hands of elected repre-

sentatives who may be more prepared to ask the difficult questions. JULIE BROWNE OTAKI

signed off, developed and constructed. In June 2013, at a human rights mediation, KCDC agreed that as soon as possible after the main pool opened, the ramp would be installed and usable. KCDC have a serious problem. In pool design and construction, they did not ‘‘plan people with disabilities in’’. This cannot be fixed by abrogating human rights. ERICA COONEY RAUMATI BEACH



It is in the nature of innovation in technology that a certain amount of blue sky is needed and profit is not generally regarded as a short or even medium term goal in the development of innovative products in this sector. Innovation needs time for trial and error, to return from blind alleys, learn from them and to develop prototypes that iron out the glitches. These things generally take time. For KCDC’s Gavin Welsh to describe the sector as ‘‘fickle’’ underscores a lack of understanding of business development in this area. It is understandable that the sector is wary of this council with its narrow focus on profit. It has effectively sacked the voluntary trust in favour of anything that will make a buck being given a role at the cleantech centre. Innovation, it seems, is no longer relevant. Ratepayers are simply being told the council is not happy, with no explanation of how the current trust has failed to meet objectives, or even what those objectives were. We are very sorry the council is feeling ‘‘underwhelmed’’ but perhaps that has more to do with their lack of collective expertise in innovation and development than any faults within the cleantech centre.

Current New Zealand Standard 4121: 2001 ‘‘Design for Access and Mobility’’ was written to guide those responsible for making buildings and facilities fully viable for the many of us living within the huge spectrum of disabilities. The standard aims to provide workable solutions for the majority of access and usage needs people with disability experience; yet it recognises everyone benefits from these measures. Facilities must enable people with disabilities to use them ‘‘with the same level of convenience’’ as everyone else. To date, no disability auditors have approved the aquatic centre’s accessibility without a ramp despite KCDC commissioning accessibility assessments from Wrightson

Associates. (They recommended a ramp.) A ramp is the only recommendation the standard makes for ‘‘pool access’’, given an ‘‘accessible route’’ must be usable by a wheelchair user ‘‘unaided’’. A ramp aids access, safety, ease, independence, dignity; and is universal. In turn, the standard is the only provision automatically compliant for access and use under the building legislation. Concerns about the ramp’s necessity, design, build and safety were canvassed at a public meeting KCDC held mid-May 2013. The ramp was specially designed and approved by the architects, Wrightson Associates, Variopool and KCDC itself, for virtually semipermanent use in the main pool’s shallower area. To that end, it was

I know the Kapiti super highway is going ahead despite all the local protest, but I was recently looking at a book Waikanae written by Chris and Joan MacLean, quite by chance in the Upper Hutt library (and actually a signed copy), dated 1988, second edition 2000. It is a beautiful book both historically and geographically, but what caused me the most interest was a Waikanae area map inside the covers. Then, and still now, it is a unified area comprising the whole Kapiti Coast to the west of the present highway (the vast majority of it anyway). This would have allowed for the continuous integrated development of the whole area, so that in 50 years or so, it would have been an urban region of distinct character. But that is not going to happen now. Just go to Auckland and see how the city is dissected by motorway monstrosities and you’ll get an idea of what is in store for Kapiti. Yes ‘‘think big’’ or ‘‘think bad’’ — that’s the question! ANTON HYMAN NELSON

#1 Fluoride Quiz

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. f f f f f

Low life steals from paramedic during call Treasured possessions were stolen from a Wellington Free Ambulance paramedic while she attended an emergency in Paekakariki on Wednesday. Team operations manager Helen Berry responded to a 111 call-out at 11.30pm on Wednesday night. She parked her clearly marked Wellington Free Ambulance rapid response vehicle in the driveway of the patient’s house, grabbed the medical and radio equipment she needed and locked the car. ‘‘I saw the indicators flash when I pressed the key button so I thought the car was locked. ‘‘I dashed into the house.’’ Inadvertently she pressed the ‘unlock’ button on her keys without realising it. When she returned to her vehicle 50 minutes later she found her work bag had been stolen. ‘‘I was devastated that someone would do that, especially when you are responding to an emergency. ‘‘Luckily, I had taken all the

medical gear into the house otherwise that might have gone as well.’’ Ms Berry had just returned from her uncle’s funeral in Australia. Her bag contained a letter from her aunt to Helen’s mother, other mementos of the funeral, her passport, an iPad and about $600, which was a gift from family members to help towards the costs of the flights to her uncle’s funeral. ‘‘I’d only been back at work for two days and hadn’t had time to transfer all my personal stuff out of my work bag.’’ Her bag has since been handed in to Kapiti Police but its contents are missing. If anyone has any information about these precious personal items please contact your nearest police station. Wellington Free Ambulance chief executive Diana Crossan said she found it hard to believe that anyone would stoop so low as to steal important personal possessions.

DAMAGE: Sand dune erosion south of a rock wall at Paraparaumu Beach.


Erosion keeps council busy The combination of a king tide and a powerful storm has created erosion on some sections of the district’s coastline. The height of the environmental double whammy happened on Friday and Saturday, January 10 and 11. Council coastal and stormwater asset manager Matt Aitchison said the damage from the king tide and storm was ‘‘quite a concern’’. A key area of erosion was south of a rock revetment near Tahi Rd, Paraparaumu Beach, where sea water, pushed along by strong winds, ate into sand dunes. Kapiti Coast District Council gained permission from Wellington Regional Council within 24 hours to bolster various parts of the dunes from the rock wall for 150m south. The 150m length is the maximum limit of the

resource consent. Contractor Mills and Albert used about 900 cubic metres of sand from Otaihanga quarry to do the work which started on Tuesday last week and finished last Thursday. Mr Aitchison said since the rock wall was created in 2010, dune mitigation work took place on average about three to four times a year, costing between $5000 and $10,000 each time. North of the rock revetment, there was some dune damage on the northern side of the stormwater pipe opposite Rua Rd but the area was expected to recover under calmer conditions. Further south of the councilrepaired dunes, a sand-covered backstop wall, which had been constructed in a trench behind a dune line in front of three

properties covering about 60m, has become exposed. Some sand was forced under the Arawa St wooden seawall because of liquefaction. Council has topped up the area behind the wall with sand and resown the area. There was also some minor damage in the Paekakariki area as well as Raumati South, especially a stormwater outlet which was susceptible to blocking because of a low-lying sump. Council was working on finding a solution. ‘‘We were gutted that some established vegetation has fallen,’’ Mr Aitchison said about the overall damage. ‘‘The other interesting thing was the beach lowered and we saw things like some old broken-off posts and various bits of debris including old bricks.’’

Halfway house gutted in blaze DAVID HAXTON A halfway house in Raumati Beach was destroyed last week after a man allegedly lit a fire in his room. About half a dozen residents at the Matai Rd home were outside when Paraparaumu Fire Brigade arrived at 2am on Wednesday. ‘‘Luckily they could confirm nobody was inside,’’ station officer John Arthur said. ‘‘The house was fully involved when we got there. ‘‘It was coming out of every window apart from

one room in the back.’’ The house was down a long drive. ‘‘You couldn’t see anything from the road but once we were halfway down the drive you could see it was going pretty good. ‘‘We just had to run a hose delivery down the drive and then two of our guys with breathing apparatus went in and started knocking the fire down. ‘‘It was pretty hot — one of the guys got a couple of minor burns. ‘‘We probably had it knocked down within about 10 minutes but then

there’s quite a lot of little flare ups so it was probably about an hour until it was out fully.’’ Two fire trucks and a support vehicle from the Paraparaumu brigade attended as well as a fire truck from the Waikanae Volunteer Fire Brigade. Senior Sergeant Anita Dixon of Kapiti police said, ‘‘One of the boarders set a fire in his room and then called emergency services. ‘‘Unfortunately the fire spread very quickly and it has gutted the house. ‘‘No one was injured.’’ A 48-year-old man was taken into custody, she said.

Question of good faith over market proposal I want to issue a challenge to the big boys in town — the Todd Group. They have a proposal before council to develop a weekend farmers market at their Paraparaumu Airport. They intend to have this ‘‘Market Square’’ up and running by next summer. The problem is, just one kilometre away at Paraparaumu Beach, we have a Saturday Market that has grown and thrived over 14 years. It’s a socioeconomic watering-hole underpinning our village identity and contributing to our sense of belonging. Market smallholders I have spoken to, believe the Todd proposal has the potential to seriously damage this. My question is this. Does the community that has developed around the Beach’s Saturday Market, and the surrounding businesses that benefit from its positive multiplier economic effects, have a right to make submissions on the Todd Group proposal? Council decides if a consent application should be publicly notified. Staff are inclined towards a nonnotified consent, meaning the Todd project meets

most if not all compliance issues. However, council’s development management strategy states decisions relating to the airport development should ensure ‘‘consistency and integration’’ with the Paraparaumu Town and beach centres. We also have policies to ensure that the ‘‘community cohesiveness and sense of belonging’’ of our main centres, which includes Paraparaumu Beach, are supported. Even if the Todd Group’s consent application can successfully circumvent these, and is perfectly entitled to be a nonnotified process, there is clause S95A of the RMA which states that the applicant can request it to be publicly notified. I consider this to be a good faith clause. Do these big boys, one of the country’s biggest developers, have the good faith to engage with the local community?

Their purchase of 75 per cent of Kapiti Landing Development, that owns the Paraparaumu Airport, makes them a major player in shaping the local economy. They are the faceless big boys. Not to be mistaken with former majority shareholder, Sir Noel Robinson. Now a minority shareholder, Sir Noel however continues to be the friendly PR face of Paraparaumu Airport. Can the faceless big boys interface with the local community through a notified consent process? It’s an opportunity for them to convince the Beach community that their ‘‘Market Square’’ project is consistent and can integrate with a thriving Beach community that values its own market. A rejection of this opportunity has the potential to sour its relationship with a significant section of the community. This is the challenge.

The Paraparaumu Beach Bowling Club is celebrating its 75th Jubilee this weekend, in an all-weekend event honouring its long and colourful time on the coast. Following over 12 months’ planning and the gathering of sponsorship from local businesses including ANZ who paid for printing of the club’s heavily-researched 75th Jubilee Booklet, members are excited to see the much-anticipated event finally around the corner. As a celebration for current and past club members, the 75th Jubilee has receievd sponsorship from a range of local businesses including Tall Poppy, HMC Kapiti, Liquor King Kapiti and Kapiti Coast Funeral Homes. Thanks to the generous sponsorship and hard work from dedicated committee members, the event will be another fun-filled occassion to add to the club’s rich history. Beginning on the evening of Friday 17, the Jubilee will see guests celebrate in a formal social gathering, which will include special guest appearances from Kapiti Mayor Ross Church and partner Vicki McCarthy, and local MP Kris Faafoi.

Club presidents from other local bowling clubs will also attend, along with Jubilee sponsors. With 150 people invited to the opening function, Friday night will set the scene for an action-packed celebration weekend. The Jubilee’s Saturday activities will commence at 9.30am, in a large Heartland Bank-sponsored bowls tournament with major cash prizes. At lunchtime, a group photo will take place with approximately 100 members, to later be framed and hung on the club wall as a reminder of its progression as a long-standing social sporting club in Kapiti. Saturday night will hold a Jubilee dinner at Kapiti Village, with entertainment from local comedian John Graham, as well as cutting of the club’s 70th anniversary Jubilee cake. Sunday 19 will end the three-day affair with a relaxed progressive bowling tournament followed by lunch, with the first game of bowls starting at 10am and the second set for the afternoon. An official jubilee closing will ensue, with a shared afternoon tea to tie up the event.

“The Clubrooms as they are today.”

The Paraparaumu Bowling Club’s Evolvement Through


Paraparaumu Beach Bowling Clubfirst opened in November 1939, as The Paraparaumu Beach Bowling and Croquet Club on the corner of Kapiti Road and Ocean Road. Upon moving to their first sports ground, a complete refurbishment took place, stretching over 12 months in a series of ploughing, levelling, topsoiling and seed planting. Remaining at theKapiti Road location until mid-1968, the clubthen shifted to its current Toru Road premises, which has since been extended thanks to thousands of dollars’ worth of fundraising efforts by committee members. In a process that began with the laying of a few greens, a brand new iron-roofed pavilion emerged, comprised of brick walls, locker rooms and kitchen facilities. As well astransferring grass turf from Kapiti Road, two iron gates were moved to Toru Road, with one presented in memory of the club’s 1944 President and reading,

‘In Memory of W. H. H. Nicholls, Past President and Foundation Secretary and Treasurer 1938-1946.’ Proving strong in 1973, the club began extending its building, introducinga range of additions including a lounge room, kitchen update and bar area. In 1982, a dishwasher was installed, followed by a considerable water supply upgrade. Further expansions and maintenance work regularly took place between 1995-2012, including more kitchen extensions, carpeting of the main hall, an extensive interior upgrade, new shelter sheds, toilet upgrades, roof replacement, and painting of all exterior woodwork. Paraparaumu Beach Bowling Club now shares its greens and clubrooms with locals outside the club, as a popular and sophisticated beachside location for community, corporate and social occasions.

OUTSTANDING FUNDRAISING EFFORTS FOR PARAPARAUMU BEACH BOWLING CLUB The continual progression of the clubrooms over the years, as well the club’s ability to hold special events including the 75th Jubilee celebration, was made possible thanks to extensive committee fundraising efforts and local sponsorship. The club has enjoyed many different avenues of raising funds over the years, which considerably reduced the cost of purchasing and maintaining buildings, furniture and equipment. As well as housie and poker machines in the 1980s and 1990s, garage sales provided small amounts of funding, with two larger efforts seeing close to $10,000 raised in 2004 and 2009. Before the club’s amalgamation in 1996, which introduced the collaboration of men and women on the bowling grounds, the Women’s Section held regular bring-and-buy coffee

mornings, donating funds to the Men’s Section for the purchasing of kitchen equipment. The Women’s Section also provided funding support through raffles, coffee mornings, galas and cake stalls, using the earnings to purchase items of furniture, kitchen equipment and nylon scrims.

Life Members - From Left; Rear - Snow Anderson, Michael Leggot, Brian Howman, Ron Welply; Front - Helen Bethwaite, Beryl Doyle and President Eileen Jones.

In recent years, the Paraparaumu Beach Bowling Club has received grants from various Gaming Trusts, as well as generous sponsorship from local businesses including its Jubilee sponsors ANZ, Tall Poppy, HMC Kapiti, Liquor King Kapiti and Kapiti Coast Funeral Homes. An outstanding moment in the club’s fundraising history was the Housie Committee’s raising of many thousands of dollars to help finance the 1982 building project, which was later responsible for writing-off the building bank loan of $7,807 in 1988.

What’s On...

Action urged for charity relay event CLOE WILLETTS Members of the public are encouraged to put on their walking shoes and get in quick for Kapiti’s upcoming Relay For Life event, set for February 22. With 17 teams already registered for the relay, which will begin at Athletics Park at the Paraparaumu Domain, Cancer Society Kapiti’s fundraising and event co-ordinator Lee Pownall says more participants are required to surpass last year’s 36 teams. ‘‘For anyone without a team, we can pair you up with another team or create a new one depending on numbers,’’ he says. ‘‘Individuals or small groups are also invited to attend tonight’s team captains meeting at 6pm at the Kapiti Community Centre.’’ As part of the event, participants are encouraged to fundraise $100-$200 per team member, with proceeds going directly to the New Zealand Cancer Society. Mr Pownall says anybody is welcome to register for the event and can choose to walk, jog or run the relay. With food vendors and entertainment set for the allnight event, which is held overnight as a symbol of the fact cancer never sleeps, Relay For Life will begin with an opening ceremony and invite cancer survivors and caregivers to lead the first lap. ‘‘More FM has got on board and will go through the night in support of participants, while Pak’nSave will provide food for a big breakfast, which

the Whirlwind charity will prepare.’’ Included in the event will be an evening candlelight ceremony, held in remembrance of those affected by cancer. Personally-inscribed candle bags will then be placed around the track, followed by a morning closing ceremony. Relay For Life was first held in New Zealand in 2001 in Palmerston North and has proven to be a great success. The Cancer Society, which relies heavily on support from events including Relay For Life, is the largest nongovernment funder of cancer research in New Zealand and is dedicated to reducing cancer statistics. Working to ensure the best cancer outcome and care for cancer patients, the Cancer Society says without volunteers it would not be able to support, inform and empower those affected by cancer. Registered teams for this year’s event include Chelsea House, Clairebear’s All Stars, Luscious Lady Lions, Muppets, Nana’s Angels, Not Only But Also, Paraparaumu College, RBS Community Clan, Rotary Rocks, Style, The Odds and Sods, The Walkie Talkies, Waikanae Tuis, Wellywalks Left Boot, Wellywalks Right Boot and ANZ Kapiti. ‘‘There is a $200 entry fee per team of up to 10 people and $20 per extra person,’’ Mr Pownall says. ‘‘People can register online at, or reach us during the day on 04 298 8514.’’

Official opening a family occasion The official opening of the newly built bird hide in the marine wetlands in Queen Elizabeth Park takes place on Saturday at 11am. The short ceremony at the Mackays Crossing entrance will be followed by guided walks and children’s activities. The bird hide is the result of a joint project between Greater Wellington and the Friends of Queen Elizabeth Park with considerable assistance from sponsors Boffa Miskell, Forest and Bird, Paekakariki and Raumati/Paraparaumu Community Boards, Whareroa Guardians and the NZ Ornithological Society to commemorate the 60th Jubilee

year of the creation of Queen Elizabeth Park. To keep the children interested there will be nature oriented craft activities. Bikes are welcome too, as there are easy flat tracks nearby that are suitable for all the family. This year there has been a great range of birds using the wetlands, including the ever present but very entertaining pukeko, pied stilts, herons, scaup, dab chicks, teal, paradise duck and the inevitable mallards. Interpretation boards are in the hide. Future plans include making the track from the Marines’ memorial site to the jubilee bird hide wheel chair accessible.

Access Bars practitioners from Kapiti and Wellington offered free sessions of this holistic therapy at Z Health Studio in Paraparaumu Beach on Monday night.

When she moved to Raumati South two years ago there were no practitioners in the area. She learned the technique when living in California. ‘‘Now several offer sessions to the public and many more using the technique with family and friends’’ Visit for more information.

The Pottery Club of Otaki is holding its annual Festival of Pots and Garden Art with an all-day family event from January 18 to 26 at Otaki’s Anam Cara. A major fundraiser for the club, the festival runs from 10am to 4pm and includes demonstrations by local potters and artists, pottery and garden art for sale and light refreshments. Free for children and college students, this year’s event is at the new Anam Cara venue, previously known as Coehaven. ‘‘The owners of Anam Cara, Shona and Robin Hartendorp, have generously allowed us to exhibit our crafts in the beautiful grounds of this 10 acre gem of established trees and shrubs,’’ says the club’s convenor Brent Craig. With a $5 entry fee for adults, all money raised will go toward equipment and management of the club, which has about 75 members. Established in 2009, the club provides tutors for adult pottery classes and takes children’s workshops, including the Clay in Schools project, in collaboration with New Zealand’s Creative Communities Scheme. Mr Craig says the club also actively encourages pottery within the community, holding an annual public Raku in December. ‘‘The festival is an opportunity for crafts people to exhibit and sell their work at one pleasant location. ‘‘If you would like to exhibit your craft, or have any questions, visit our website, or email www.festivalpots@gmail,’’ he says. ■ The Festival of Pots and Garden Art is at Anam Cara, 150 Rangiuri Rd, Otaki.

Eric Lomax was one of thousands of Allied prisoners of war forced to work on the construction of the Thai/Burma railway during World War 2. His experiences, after the secret radio he built to bring news and hope to his colleagues was discovered, left him traumatised and shut off from the world. Years later, he met Patti, a beautiful woman, on a train and fell in love. Patti was determined to rid Eric of his demons. Discovering that the young Japanese officer who haunted her husband was still alive, she faced a terrible decision. Should Eric be given a chance to confront his tormentor? Would she stand by him, whatever he did? The Railway Man opens at the ShoreLine Cinema in Waikanae on January 23.

Popular Otaki River book reprinted CLOE WILLETTS Friends of the Otaki River has reprinted its popular 204-page book Otaki River: Ko Otaki te Awa, after a successful first run sell-out. The publicly-funded memoir, which highlights the rich history and significance of Kapiti’s 45km long river, is the first about a site that has seen extensive progress during the last 11 years. ‘‘The book contains many historic photos and 100-year-old stories about earlier life along the river,’’ said FOTOR project chairwoman Catherine Strong. ‘‘Members of FOTOR have a strong loyalty and respect for the river and like to share that.’’ A collaborative work, Otaki River: Ko Otaki te Awa was composed by various FOTOR members, including Otaki artist and book designer Adele Souster, and retired Otaki College principal Rex Kerr, who wrote the transcript. Otaki River: Ko Otaki te Awa, which retails for $30, is dedicated to FOTOR’s plant nursery convenor Dr Barrie Bayston, who died in 2011 after years of devotion to the environmental

programme. ‘‘In addition, shops selling the book are not taking any margin.’’ It is sold at Otaki New World, Otaki Caltex and River Stone Cafe´, which are all along SH1.

FOTOR has 200 members, including 20 who every Wednesday morning care for seedlings at the plant nursery, which was created in an effort to develop affordable natives. Along with receiving grants

from local businesses and Greater Wellington Regional and Kapiti Coast District councils, FOTOR has been working alongside local primary schools in a river tree planting initiative. ‘‘Te Horo Primary, Waitohu Primary and Otaki Primary have participated in the scheme, adopting a stand of a 1000 trees to nurture and plant.’’ Thanks to FOTOR, which started just over 11 years ago at a time when there were no public walkways along the river, there are now more than 45,000 native trees along the river’s edges. Otaki River has multiple public access points and a recently-installed pedestrian bridge. ‘‘I remember viewing the hidden lagoon at Chrystall’s Bend beside Otaki River about seven years ago before any work was done,’’ Mrs Strong said. ‘‘It was nothing but a messy sludge pond. ‘‘Now it is the most picturesque picnic spot around.’’ For online purchases of Otaki River: Ko Otaki te Awa visit


Can Funerals be Eco friendly? by Andrew Malcolm

Funeral rituals and practices were Eco friendly since time began, but modern society has changed some of these practices. More and more people are now becoming at least a little bit eco focused and so too are many of the funeral options being made available.

The second example ties in with this, that of natural caskets. There are many pine and other natural product caskets now supplied to your funeral director, and most of these can be purchased at a similar price to non natural caskets such as MDF board.

The first of 3 quick examples are Natural Burials. We have a Natural Burial section now on the Kapiti coast at the Otaki Cemetery. This is a special area where graves are dug shallow and filled with organic soil to return the deceased to the elements. A tree is planted on the grave and no lasting memorial is allowed. Eventually the area will return to native bush. The casket must be a natural product (not man-made) such as pine.

The third Eco friendly area is that of preparing the deceased. Embalming, often seen as using a large amount of chemical, is now a modern process and uses very low percentages of chemical, in fact totally organic embalming is available and so too are other similar processes such as a process called Ecoprep. With these and many more Eco friendly funeral options available please contact a Funeral Home listed who can help

Re-engaged with simple pleasures Newly-elected councillor Gavin Welsh shares his experience about a holiday to a remote part of New Zealand


fter a mammoth 14-month campaign and very steep learning curve in my new position on council, when the opportunity to get back to basics on D’Urville Island came round, my family and I didn’t need to be asked twice. D’Urville Island sits neatly between the Marlborough Sounds and Nelson, with the notorious waters of French Pass separating it from the northern point of the South Island. This was our second trip to the bach at The Cove, thanks to the kind generosity of our dear friend Noella Squire. Noella inherited the bach jointly with her niece Joanne on the passing of her step-father Jim Finlay, who lived there selfsufficiently to a ripe old age on a diet of four eggs a day, a slab of bacon and a regular measure of home brew (strictly medicinal of course). Having ridden shotgun with our friends the Mackay family on previous occasions, Iain, Rachel, Tessa and wee Angus joined us for the experience. The Te Rangi homestead nestles neatly behind a few manuka trees against a spectacular backdrop of pristine native bush. A few steps to the jetty reveals a stunning panorama that displays a multitude of characters depending on the time of day and the accompanying light. With no realistic chance of getting to a shop once we were there, what we didn’t take, we didn’t have. With an estimated 288 meals to put together during the trip, you can imagine there was a fair bit to unpack, not forgetting a wee dram or two in Jim’s honour (strictly medicinal of course). In no time at all, the kids had their rods unpacked and lines in the water catching spotties off the jetty. A picture perfect example of the upbringing we had hoped to provide by moving to New Zealand and a fulfilling moment indeed. Having taken some normally scarcely-used kayaks with us, we extended our fishing adventures beyond the jetty. As an honorary fisheries officer, I was keen to see what effect the blue cod

WOW: The spectacular view from The Cove, D’Urville Island.

You would struggle to find a better example of a successful fisheries management strategy — there were blue cod for Africa! Drop a line . . . catch a cod.

The water supply was drawn straight from the stream behind the bach and delivered through the very best of plumbing systems — a collection tank, an old tin bath and a healthy dose of Kiwi ingenuity. When the rains came and the water turned brown, I had to have a quiet chuckle to myself regarding the recent lengthy discussions around Kapiti’s own water supply . . . we drank it nevertheless. Tempting as it is to delve into the details of the many fantastic adventures that we enjoyed while we were there, alas, my article would end up being a novel. In conclusion, our trip to D’Urville Island has been a welcome reminder of the important things in life — family, fun, good food, good company and reengaging with the pleasures of a simple existence.

Student aid to stricken village delights locals CLOE WILLETTS Twenty-four Year 7 and 8 Raumati Beach School students returned recently from a week-long community service expedition trip to cyclone-ravaged Savia in Samoa. In a journey enriched with education, friendships and generosity, Raumati Beach School left behind thousands of dollars’ worth of school equipment, stationary, books and medical supplies. Prior to flying to the small Samoan village on November 2, the students had engaged in a significant fundraising effort that saw a large container worth around $5000 shipped to the community. Packed with school equipment, including 60-70 plastic stacker chairs and two table tennis tables, piles of donated books and $20,000 worth of stationery, the donation came as a life-altering gift for a community with minimal resources. Along with the hard work of

students and parents, the donation was made possible thanks to a range of local businesses including Whitcoulls, Paper Plus, Share Mortgage Brokers, Horowhenua Cricket, Kapiti’s Netball Association, Stirling Sports, Paula’s Furniture and Beds, and Sovereign Insurance.

Radius Pharmacy Coastlands’ donation of a much-needed $500 comprehensive medical supply kit containing items to manage a range of basic illnesses was also accepted with open arms. Parent helper and registered nurse Maureen Vogt, who went on

the trip with daughter Libby Ross, said the village’s sole nurse Maria was overwhelmed by the donation. ‘‘Maria is Samoan and lives in Savia with her Australian husband Ross, looking after her family land and the community where she was born,’’ Mrs Vogt said. ‘‘She loves working over there, even though she often purchases supplies at her own expense.’’ Mrs Vogt said Savia teachers were in tears when they set eyes on the masses of school equipment and stationery brought in, while the children were delighted to each receive their own bag containing jandals and stationery. ‘‘It was beautiful because the children just sat down and hugged their bags close to their chest. ‘‘They waited until they got home to open them, whereas children here would’ve been straight into them.’’ Libby, 12, said the visit saw Raumati Beach School students engaged in playful school-versusschool sports games, shared meals, a

kapa haka battle, church services and a movie night which for many Savia children was their first film experience. She said despite not having a lot, the Savia community was extremely generous, making an assortment of island-inspired gifts and arranging a large welcome feast that included pizza and cream donuts. Mrs Vogt said Raumati Beach School students were also presented with fresh coconuts despite a shortage in the village following the devastating cyclone. ‘‘They got coconuts brought in from Apia at quite a big expense so all our kids could have coconuts and coconut milk. ‘‘It does knock you between the eyes seeing how easy our lives are and the opportunities our children have here.’’ Libby said months’ worth of ‘‘really hard work’’ leading up to the trip was all worth it. ‘‘I want to go back to Savia and help again one day.’’
