Police are seeking information about a suspicious fire near Mount Victoria last week. Police said at about 7.30pm a fire was lit near the badminton hall on Ruahine St. Two more fires were started on Friday morning about 7.30am just off the Mt Victoria walking tracks north of the SPCA. The track leads from Alexandra Rd down to Pirie St. Police said the fires were reported and were extinguished quickly. Police have asked members of the public with information about the fires to contact them.

Vigil for Paris Hundreds of people gathered at Civic Square on Tuesday night for a moment of reflection and remembrance following attacks in Paris at the weekend. The Ambassador of France, Florence Jeanblanc-Risler and the Mayor of Wellington Celia Wade-Brown were among those in attendance. A book of condolences will remain in the main council building foyer until Friday evening for those who wish to write a message of support or tribute.

Exercise areas get tails wagging By Nikki Papatsoumas

More exercise areas for dogs could be on the cards from next year. Today the Wellington City Council’s Environment Committee will discuss the scope for reviews of the council’s Animals Bylaw and Dog Policy. The policy and bylaw determine the requirements for keeping dogs and other animals. If approved by the committee, the reviews will scrutinise management of cats, dogs, pigeons and poultry. Environment Committee chair Iona Pannett said the main issues in terms of the dog policy review were adequacy of dog exercise areas, registration fees, dog faeces, and access to public places. The review will look at the adequacy of certain dog exercise areas and the existing rule that does not allow dog owners to ‘stop’ when walking a dog through the CBD. “From a dog owner’s perspective, the adequacy of dog exercise areas continues to be an issue. There are a number of excellent areas throughout the city, but there are still a number of gaps in the network. “We know some dog owners want to be able to take their dogs into the city but other people may feel it is not appropriate, so we will be asking the public what they think.” Hazel Harrison from Nose2Tail in Lyall Bay welcomed more facilities for dog owners. However, she said it was important owners were well educated when it came to off-leash dog behaviour. “I do have concerns about having more dog parks and the lack of education when it comes to safe off-leash dog play.” Hazel said an information board at dog parks identifying and highlighting fearful dog body language could help educate

owners. “There are so many new dog owners out there that are not really 100 per cent sure how their dogs should behave when they are playing in a big group… it can be really difficult.” Work on the reviews will start in the New Year – and a four week public consultation will follow in May. An updated Animals Bylaw and Dog Policy would then be debated, adopted and in force by September 2016.  For more information head to wellington.govt.nz Do you think there should be more exercise areas for dogs?

Twelfth Night comes to Bats Theatre Isabel Corfiatis plays Antonio. PHOTO CREDIT: Deborah Eve Rea. By Nikki Papatsoumas

An Island Bay teen is part of a group that will bring one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays to life at Bats Theatre this week. Isabel Corfiatis, 17, is a member of the Wellington Young Actors group which is made up of actors and actresses between the ages of 12 and 17. The theatre group’s current project is Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare and after months of hard work and rehearsal the group will perform at Bats Theatre this week. As well as acting, the young company is encouraged to take on all production roles such as costume design, publicity and management. The group is run by Deborah Eve Rea who recently accepted an invitation to spend a month at The Globe in London to study Shakespeare. Isabel plays Antonio, a character who she describes as a “pirate sea captain”. “She saves Sebastian from drowning and she falls in love with him but he doesn’t love her back.” Isabel said she had performed Shakespeare before at school and was pleased to have the opportunity to bring another

of the famous playwright’s characters to life once again. “The language is so different, so it can be hard to understand what you are speaking. But it is a really good skill to have because it is at the height of acting. “Everyone strives to be able to perform Shakespeare and when you do it, it feels really good.” A highlight of the project had been the opportunity to have choreography training for her role from Peter Hassel, Isabel said. “He came in and choreographed a couple of fight scenes for us, we use fake knives and fake bricks.” She said she was excited to share these scenes with an audience on stage. Isabel said she has loved acting her whole life and sees a future on stage. “I love being able to pretend to be someone else and bring my imagination to life.”  Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, presented by Wellington Young Actors and directed by Deborah Eve Rea will run at Bats Theatre until November 28.

Exercise areas get tails wagging By Nikki Papatsoumas

More exercise areas for dogs could be on the cards from next year. Today the Wellington City Council’s Environment Committee will discuss the scope for reviews of the council’s Animals Bylaw and Dog Policy. The policy and bylaw determine the requirements for keeping dogs and other animals. If approved by the committee, the reviews will scrutinise management of cats, dogs, pigeons and poultry. Environment Committee chair Iona Pannett said the main issues in terms of the dog policy review were adequacy of dog exercise areas, registration fees, dog faeces, and access to public places. The review will look at the adequacy of certain dog exercise areas and the existing rule that does not allow dog owners to ‘stop’ when walking a dog through the CBD. “From a dog owner’s perspective, the adequacy of dog exercise areas continues to be an issue. There are a number of excellent areas throughout the city, but there are still a number of gaps in the network. “We know some dog owners want to be able to take their dogs into the city but other people may feel it is not appropriate, so we will be asking the public what they think.” Hazel Harrison from Nose2Tail in Lyall Bay welcomed more facilities for dog owners. However, she said it was important owners were well educated when it came to off-leash dog behaviour. “I do have concerns about having more dog parks and the lack of education when it comes to safe off-leash dog play.” Hazel said an information board at dog parks identifying and highlighting fearful dog body language could help educate

My Nan’s Christmas Pudding With Vin Santo Method Grease a 1.5 litre pudding bowl. Mix all the ingredients together, except the golden syrup. Put the mixture into the greased bowl and cover with a double layer of aluminium foil. Tie a piece of string round the side of the bowl. Place in a large saucepan with water halfway up the sides of the bowl. Bring the water to the boil, put on a tight-fitting lid, and simmer for 3 hours. (Don’t forget to check the water regularly, making sure that it never boils dry, because if it does, it will burn and the bowl will crack.) When it’s ready, remove the foil, turn out on to a plate, drizzle with golden syrup and decorate it as you like. You can also light it with brandy if you want to be really fancy.

Remove “Risk Factor” From Your Home A local chimney removal business to help Wellingtonians remove the ‘risk factor’ from their homes. Owner of The Chimney Removal Company in Seatoun, Kevin Giles, started his business in 2012 after a friend asked him to remove his chimney. “He had visited Christchurch and seen the considerable number of chimneys that had caused damage in the earthquakes. “Following a spate of earthquakes in the capital, more Wellingtonians have become proactive in earthquake proofing their homes by removing their chimneys. “Also a high percentage of chimneys are not even used as people use alternative forms of heating” Kevin says. “A lot of chimneys in Wellington are at the end of their lives and are very fragile. Weather has eroded away the joints, or the steel reinforcement has corroded and is making the chimney unstable.”

Kevin says removing your chimney not only removes the “risk factor”, it also creates extra space in your home which can be used to create extra floor space or storage space. “We can also give clients the option if they just want to remove the top of the chimney and re-flue it, so they can still keep their open fire or gas fire functional. “My team is made up of tradesmen and I am personally involved with every chimney removal. “We well take down your chimney carefully and fully protect your home and possessions.” “We have great systems and a lot of very satisfied customers.” •

That’s what they say and there’s really no better way to see Wellington than from on board the Dominion Post East by West Ferries! The harbour ferries run from their superb central waterfront location at Queens Wharf in front of their ticket office in the Meridian Building. There are up to 16 return sailings everyday out to Days Bay & Matiu Somes Island. In the weekends and public holidays (fine

These trips are very popular and quickly are becoming a ‘must do’ for visitors to the capital! The catamaran ferries carry up to 99 passengers and have a fantastic viewing from their open top decks. Inside the main cabin you can buy coffee, tea,

snacks and icecreams as well as beer and wine from the bar onboard. The ferries are also available for evening charters with a range of different options.

Enjoy a cruise We offer you memorable cruising on the beautiful Whanganui River. Our PS Waimarie is truly New Zealand’s premier Heritage experience. Feel the history as our ancestors plied the Whanganui River aboard Paddle steamer Waimarie, New Zealand’s last true paddle steamer (est.1900), still coal fired and still steam powered. On board you will find covered and open decks, comfortable saloons, licensed bar and cafe. Meet the legendary Mr Alexander Hatrick, original owner of this magnificent old

lady. Send a pigeon message back to the Riverboat Centre. Stoke the fire that heats the boiler to drive the two great paddle wheels. View the pictorial screenings of life on the Whanganui River and enjoy tea, coffee, a beer or a wine as you cruise, surrounded by true New Zealand Heritage. Even the crew are dressed for the occasion. Please contact us with your personal requirements so that we can offer you our very affordable pricing options.

RIVER COTTAGE is situated in a secluded spot well away from busy roads – with only the sounds of nature to break the silence. Enjoy a few hours on the verandah or just soak up the ambience inside. A great place

to relax and unwind amongst the beauty of the bush and bordering the Ohau River, River Cottage is in the heart of the Horowhenua District - 100kms north of Wellington and 50km south of Palmerston North.

River Cottage - Ohau

Having some fun, swimming and playing at the beach, a slow river cruise and a family picnic? Throw in some sport, some culture and some V8 noise and excitement? Relax at a café with a coffee and friends before strolling along a boulevard of boutique shopping? Where’s the one place you can find all of this without having to move too far? Whanganui. Really. Whanganui. Whanganui is a unique treasure in the North Island having shared its natural beauty and many attractions with settlers from over 175 years ago. Whanganui’s summer is full of events to spice up the lazy days – the world famous Cemetery Circuit Motorcycle Street Races, judged NZ’s best established regional event for 2015 is held on Boxing Day every year and the V8 Jet Sprint Championships thunder around a purpose built water track at Shelterview on the following day.

Whanganui’s Vintage Weekend kicks off for Wellington’s Anniversary Weekend. From street festivals, riverside entertainment, classic and vintage cars, and a boundless banquet held in the main street there’s plenty to see and do. If your family is all outdoors and action then head for a river kayak or jet boat experience, mountain biking trails or out to Bushy Park Sanctuary to see an enormous and ancient Rata tree. Explore the stars and Saturn from the Ward Observatory on a Friday night. Try a spot of fishing on the banks of the Whanganui River or sail on the Waimarie paddle steamer for a settler’s view of river life. For a few laid back options include the Whanganui Regional Museum, a computer clubhouse, a trip in the underground elevator built to travel 66 metres inside a hill or learn some glass blowing techniques. Visitors come for many reasons but whatever these might be it’s a brilliant place for a family visit.

Whanganui is big enough to entertain and small enough to keep it real. Enjoy arts, music, the landscape and our rich heritage.

TE RAKAU BIRDING is Wairarapa’s pre-eminent birding tour operator. Living near Ocean Beach and Onoke Spit since 1984 and being very involved in the preservation of these areas we have planted and developed our 14 hectare property expressly to attract a wide range of native

NZ and introduced or migratory species. We have also operated our Te Rakau Cabins accommodation business to provide a rustic, inexpensive option for visiting birders and for the growing number of cyclists using the Wellington-Wairarapa Cycle Trail.

RIMUTAKA SHUTTLES not only make your Rimutaka Rail Trail easy but also specialize in passenger transport for the South Wairarapa. Based in Featherston, they can provide transport for weddings, Martinborough wineries, chartered tours

of the region, conference groups as well as cycle transfers for the Rimutaka Cycle Trail, Wellington airport shuttles and festivals. Rimutaka Shuttles have a van with capacity up to 11 passengers and a minibus with capacity up to 19 passengers.

SOUTHERN WILDERNESS specialises in innovative day and multi-day Gourmet Guided Walks through the three National Parks of the Nelson Tasman region. The Heaphy Track in Kahurangi National Park, The Coastal Track in Abel Tasman

National Parkand the Travers Sabine Circuit in Nelson Lakes National Park are the flagship multi-day walks in the region. This is a great time to try this experience over the summer holidays!

GREEN JERSEY CYCLE TOURS was founded by Stuart Edwards and Lucia Zanmonti in 2011. In 2014, Joe and Pam Howells shared the vision and joined the team. We envisage that our tours are the most popular way to experience the beauty of the Wellington region and for Wellingtonians to enjoy North Island cycle routes. We provide an experience that is not rivaled in the Wellington region with top quality bicycles, beautiful tour routes, reliable support systems, great food and a fun atmosphere.

Small club wins big By Nikki Papatsoumas

Members of the Kiwi Athletic Club wowed at the central inter league meeting last Saturday. The Kiwi Athletic Club is based at Newtown Stadium and focuses on track and field sports, aimed at athletes from college age to veteran. Club president, Peter Jack, has been a member of the club since 1964. He still takes part in field events such as shot put, discus, hammer throw and javelin. He travelled alongside 10 members of the small club to Palmerston North on Saturday for the meet. Peter said despite the club’s small size, he was thrilled with the results. The team took out five wins and more than a dozen placings. “We had 10 members go up from our club of 15 and I thought there were some incredible performances from all of them. “Because it is early in season they will get better as well.”

Peter said he had noticed an increase in the number of overseas athletes joining the club in recent years. “We have a lot of overseas athletes in the club who have joined us from places such as Denmark, Germany, Burma and Scotland. “Over the last 10 years we have found a fall in New Zealanders coming into our sport because of professional sports such as rugby and soccer. “We are now seeing more people join who were originally from overseas… they are keen to do athletics and stay in the sport.” Peter said Kiwi Athletics Club were always looking for new members. “It’s great for the youngsters’ health and to keep them out of trouble and we are finding to that it is very useful as a forerunner for them to use their fitness for other sports.”  For more information on the Kiwi Athletics Club, head to www.sportsground.co.nzkiwiathletics or phone Peter on 388 6224.

Future Ferns in the making By Nikki Papatsoumas

From left, Douglas Miller, Edward Bragg, Lucinda Carran, Florence Bragg and Keagan Porter all took place in a Pedal Ready session at Island Bay School on Monday.

A group of keen netballers from St Francis de Sales School in Island Bay learnt all about dodging last Saturday. The year 1 and 2 students are part of the Future Ferns programme, which teaches children from the age of five to ignite a lifelong involvement in netball. The sequential programme aims to teach children fundamental movement and ball skills.

Each Saturday the children complete a skill session before playing a game. The games are played four a side, in a third of the netball court and hula hoops are used as goals to aid with the childrens’ development. Equal participation is encouraged during the games. As part of last Saturday’s lesson, children focused on two activities, ‘knee tag’ and ‘treasure’.

Students sharpen their bike skills By Nikki Papatsoumas

Island Bay School children were given a lesson in cycling skills on Monday. A group of year 5 and 6 students took part in the Pedal Ready programme earlier this week, after an enthusiastic student decided she wanted to learn more about cycling. Pedal Ready is a Greater Wellington Regional Council initiative and was introduced four years ago. As part of the initiative sessions in cycle safety and skills are offered at no charge to schools in the region. More than 4000 children have now taken part in the initiative. Pedal Ready instructor Patrick Morgan said the programme begins with a grade 1 session in the playground, where children are taught how to stop and start and how to use hand signals. Safety checks of their bikes and helmets are also completed. For the grade 2 session children are given on-road training which involves learning traffic rules, lane positioning and negotiat-

ing traffic. Florence Bragg and her friend Lillian Marshall got in contact with Patrick and the team at Pedal Ready to arrange a session at Island Bay School so they could learn how to ride their bikes safely. “We had the idea that we should do this and then we searched the web and found a suitable website, Florence said.” The girls were amongst those to complete a grade 1 session which was held at Island Bay School earlier this week, Patrick said Pedal Ready instructors have previously taught students at Berhampore, Houghton Valley and South Wellington Intermediate Schools. “It is great to extend that to Island Bay School students. This is the first time we have had a school student organise the session. “It looks like there is a lot of demand for kids to improve their bike skills and they are the envy of every other Wellington suburb with this protected bike cycleway. [Island Bay] are leading the way for Wellington.”

Students from St Francis de Sales School in Island Bay participate in the Future Ferns programme at the Hataitai Netball Courts.

Questions & Answers

Medium Density Housing The Wellington City Council is currently consulting on what medium density might look like in Island Bay.

The Council’s growth predictions for Island Bay and Owhiro Bay are for over 300 more households over the next 30 years, mostly in

large scale increase in population. However, large scale increases are not anticipated, and if this occurred the council has recognised that services would need to be

ment (for example height, site coverage, open space, sunlight planes) including the look and feel of new builds – so now is the time for the community to have input

into what these are.

How can I tell the Council what I think?

Put in a written submission by December 7. You can do this by writing a letter, sending an email or using the council’s submission form. If you make a submission you should note your concerns and also what you would like to see in the proposed rules. The details of how to submit are on the council’s website: http:// wellington.govt.nz/your-council/ projects/housing-choice-andsupply/

Will this be the only opportunity for the community to be heard?

No. After this consultation the council will develop a draft proposal with more detail about the design guidelines, and this will be consulted on. Following this, a final proposal will be prepared and formal consultation will take place. So this is the first in three consultations with the community. Further public meetings will be held through this process.  If you have any questions you would like the residents association to follow up please email islandbayres@gmail.com For more information head to wellington.govt.nz

Carols ready to rock Wellingtonians can once again enjoy some local Christmas cheer and carols at Government House this silly season. The Government House Newtown Carols will take place this Saturday. Newtown Carols Trust chairman Ian Rogers said following on from the success of last year’s event, the show will run over the afternoon to appeal

to the growing family audience of kids and families. Among those to perform are the combined voices of the Newtown Carols Choir, drawn from the Pacific Island churches of the area, alongside the Salvation Army Brass Band. As well was this, the 2014 barbershop quartet world champions Musical Island Boys will return to

the stage for a rare public appearance. The flamboyant and ever-youthful Mafutaga Tagata Matuta PIPC group will once again be the feature support act. “It promises to be special as always,” said Ian. “We’ve had a great response from the local community and people are really looking forward to the day.”

Capping off the show is the arrival of Santa and this year Ian said the man in red would be “arriving in style”. The event is held in association with funding partners The Infinity Foundation and the New Zealand Community Trust, and will also support The Salvation Army, whose work is embedded in the city of

Wellington and the community of Newtown. Entry to Government House Carols is by donation at the gate with all proceeds going to The Salvation Army.  Government House Newtown Carols is on at 2.30pm this Saturday, November 28. Further details are at Facebook/Government House Carols
