More smoke-free areas on the cards How to reach us

A large group of Wellingtonians have been surveyed on their views of increasing smoke-free areas in the capital. The results of the survey were presented to the Wellington City Council’s Community Sport and Recreation committee at its meeting last week. Of the more than 1000 people surveyed 84 per cent were in favour of a smoke-free Wellington. Mayor of Wellington, CeliaWade Brown, said the council had already designated many of its sports fields, playgrounds, and skate parks, as smoke-free outdoor areas. “We share Government’s goal for a smoke-free nation by 2025. This calls for greater action to

be taken.” The most preferred places for extending the ‘smoke-free’ designation include entrances to buildings accessed by the public including bus stops, the Wellington Botanic gardens and Otari-Wiltons Bush. “Sharing a bus stop with someone who is smoking puts people off catching buses,” Celia said. “I do realise it is hard to quit smoking as I gave up when I was in my thirties. These days non-smokers are the new normal.” The Zoo and Zealandia are already smoke-free as is new and refurbished Council housing (both inside and out), with designated smoking areas provided

ADVERTISEMENT PROOF SHEET Continued from page 1 “That required us to leave the building so we couldn’t operate here,” he said. Reverend Prestidge said throughout the final months of 2013, the church was able to operate out of St Aidan’s Anglican Church, before finally being able to return in time for Christmas. However due to the status of the church’s main auditorium, services had to operate out of the church’s hall until strengthening work was completed last month. Reverend Prestidge said the work, which took 16 weeks to complete came with a price tag of $150,000. “We had some savings or money from sales of previous buildings… so we were very lucky we had money to pay for the bills it was always going to be very expensive.” Reverend Prestidge said the congregation was over the

moon to have their main auditorium back up and running and this weekend, the church would have a celebratory service to thank everyone for their support while the work has taken place. “The main message we want to get out to the community is that we are back up and running. “We are an earthquake resilient building… so we are open for business in terms of groups should feel this is a safe building that has been done up. “We are keen to have more community groups use our facilities.” Miramar Uniting is a combined Methodist and Presbyterian congregation made up of just over 50 members.

Carols in Island Bay

School fair a success

The Island Bay churches are again combining to offer a relaxing evening of Christmas carols, games and a community barbeque in what has become a fun annual event. The whole community is invited to St Hilda’s Anglican Church, 311 The Parade on December 13 for the community carols event. Bring family and neighbours, a blanket, plus extra picnic food to the church lawn. Sausages, coffee, soft drinks and ice cream will be provided. The service starts at 6pm.

The team who organised the Houghton Valley School Fair last month said it was a successful day. The school thanked members of the local community who helped directly, those who donated goods and all those who came and shared the day with students and staff.

The first flag referendum

Shelly Bay Market As part of an initiative between The Wellington Company and the Maori Tenths Trust, a new Saturday market, opening this Saturday, is coming to Shelly Bay. Already a hub of artistic creativity, with Propellor Studios, Whirlwind Design and the Blackmore and Best Gallery, to name just a few, all just a stone’s throw from the Chocolate Fish Cafe, this market hopes to help firmly put this secret jewel of a spot on the map as a go to destination in Wellington. The market will be held every Saturday from 10am to 3pm.

Christmas in the Park Strathmore Park Community is holding a Christmas in the Park get together at the Raukawa St Reserve on December 9 from 5.30pm. The community carols will feature performances by Breakout Dance Crew, Kapa Haka Carols and Santa. Locals are encouraged to head along with friends, family and a picnic.

Wellington’s iconic Brooklyn turbine will soon be replaced by a turbine which will generate more power. Last week, the owner of the Brooklyn turbine, Meridian Energy, announced it had signed a contract for a new turbine that will begin generating electricity from Wellington’s world-famous wind in April. Meridian external relations manager Guy Waipara said the current turbine would be removed in December and work would begin in January to prepare the foundation for the new turbine. The new turbine would arrive in Wellington at the end of March and it was expected to take three weeks to have the turbine up and running, he said. He said the project would cost $2.9 million. “We’re very excited that this is happening. The current turbine has become iconic. It is part of the

Community led rejuvenation for Strathmore Park By Nikki Papatsoumas

Whether it’s an added playground, better lighting or more community spaces, Strathmore Park residents have the chance to say what they would like to see in their community. Wellington City Council, Housing New Zealand and the New Zealand Police are all supporting a community-led rejuvenation of Strathmore Park. As part of the initiative the Strathmore Park community have been asked to identify strengths, challenges and opportunities for the suburb at recent community meetings, with further consultation planned for this month. Strathmore resident Tania Moloney has lived in the suburb since she was 12-years-old. She said she was pleased to hear about the initiative and believed Strathmore had a lot of potential. In particular she said she would like to see a second base or hall developed on the vacant land at Raukawa St. She said this site would be more accessible for families, mums with push chairs and the elderly than the Strathmore Park Community Centre. “That’s where the heart of the community is. I would love to see a second base there the community could take ownership of. Tania also expressed a desire to

So far suggestions have included: Projects which support the environment such as special housing, safe and connected walkways, improved bus routes, and urban rejuvenation. Spaces for communities including sporting and recreational facilities, retail and tourism opportunities and improved social services. Pathways to success such as a Trades school, social enterprises, early childhood facilities. Community-driven events and programmes including Christmas In The Park, youth programmes, and community gardens.

see more playgrounds for children, more lighting along walkways that connected streets in the suburb and a community patrol. She encouraged people to put forward their ideas of what they would like to see in their own backyard. “People need to get involved more, when you talk about Strathmore you are talking about generations of people.” Strathmore resident and president of the Strathmore Park Progressive and Beautifying Association, Stan Andis, said he has lived in the area “all of my 77 years”. He called the initiative “magic”.

“The fact we are getting support from the Wellington City Council, the police and Housing New Zealand is incredible.” Councillor Paul Eagle, who is also chair of the Community Sport and Recreation Committee, said there needed to be a plan for Strathmore. “This isn’t about council rescuing the area. It is about the council delivering in the long term.”  Residents can share ideas on how to improve Strathmore Park by emailing LoveStrathmorePark@gmail.com or by visiting the community caravan in the Raukawa Street carpark area on December 5, 9 and 12.

Volunteers valued at Kilmarnock Heights Home International Volunteer Day is on December 5 and Enliven’s Kilmarnock Heights Home is taking the opportunity to thank its teams of dedicated volunteers. Kilmarnock Heights Home manager Bronwyn Drennan says the wonderful men, women, teenagers and children that volunteer to be part of the Enliven team make a real difference to the lives of elders at the home. “We would like to thank them for all they do. As a not-for-profit organisation we could not offer the level of support we do without our volunteers,” says Bronwyn. “Our volunteers help to run groups and activities they spend quality time with residents and so much more.” Bronwyn says volunteers are a big part of what makes the home feel so lively. “We have a group of wonderful volunteers who have got to know the residents and staff here so well that they’ve become part of the family,” Bronwyn explains. “Our volunteers are of all ages, cultures and backgrounds, and they all bring their different personalities, interests and experiences to the home to share with the residents.” Bronwyn says Kilmarnock Heights Home is always on the lookout for volunteers to join their team. Volunteers are needed to help with activities such as arts and crafts, gardening, outings, pampering, playing music, driving the home’s van, taking residents out for coffee, or simply visiting to spend one-on-one time with the residents. “We’re always looking at expanding our team of wonderful volunteers and there

are so many different ways to volunteer,” says Bronwyn. “Our volunteers truly make a difference here and we are so appreciative of the work that they do.”  If you want to help make a difference to the lives of residents at Kilmarnock Heights Home call 0508 TO HELP. For more information about Kilmarnock Heights Home, located at 20 Morton Street in Berhampore, call 04 380 2034 or visit www.enlivencentral.org.nz.

Suspicious package causes scare for capital Wellingtonians rushed from the capital’s city centre last Wednesday after a suspicious package was discovered. It was later revealed the package posed no t h reat a nd pol ice sa id someone had gone to a considerable effort to make it appear as though it contained explosives. Police said they cordoned off a section of Lambton Quay from Willis St to Brandon St after finding the package about 2.30pm last Wednesday. The New Zealand Defence Force Ex-

plosive Ordinance Disposal unit was called in and a robot was deployed. Police have since revealed the item did not contain any explosive material. “Someone has gone to some effort to create the item in a way that gave the impression it was an explosive device,” police said. Police said they were continuing their investigation to identify the person or persons responsible. They thanked members of the public for their assistance.

Q: Do you think smoking should be banned in bus stops? Why or why not?

Perry Osborne Kilbirnie “Definitely because not everyone smokes cigarettes I think it should be banned in public.”

David Nathanson Kilbirnie “I think yes because it just looks bad. It is a bad look for overseas visitors and they do end up on your feet and then you transfer the butts. However, I think people should be able to smoke somewhere.”

Gareth Batstone Kilbirnie “I’m an ex-smoker but I don’t know where they should draw the line. If they are enclosed [bus stops] then it should be banned.”

Sarah Va’a Kilbirnie

Cushla Skachill Kilbirnie

“Yes I think it is inconsiderate for people who don’t smoke and for someone like me it actually hurts my lungs.”

“Yes, because I don’t smoke and it’s not very nice.”

Audrey Stevens Kilbirnie “I don’t smoke, but I like coffee and next thing you know they’ll be telling me I can’t drink coffee. It has become too controlling.”

LETTERS to the editor Yes to campground

New turbine? Dear Ed, The articles on the "new" wind turbine at Brooklyn - firstly the current turbine there is the second larger one and it is noisy - on calm nights you hear ‘wri wir wir’ fading

in and out across to Mornington and now there is support for them to install an even "newer, bigger, noisier” turbine ? Martin Beck Wellington

Dear Ed, I am replying to your article in Cook Strait News regarding Happy Valley campground. I live in Kilbirnie. I think a campground at Happy Valley is a great idea. A campground is needed in Wellington. I am 74-years-old, born in Wellington and have camped all around New Zealand in motor camps, paddocks, by rivers and even in

school grounds, (many times). I am member New Zealand Motorcaravan Association (NZMCA). We hold many organised rallies in school grounds as these are the only areas large enough to hold a rally in in the areas we visit (with permission from the schools concerned of course). Sometimes as many as 80 vans could attend. The schools have a charge and it’s

a good fund raiser for them and good for NZMCA. It is a win-win situation. There has never been a problem for them or neighbours. Campers can be and usually are an asset, they bring dollars into the area and councils tend to upgrade to area to accommodate the extra visitor numbers. John Madsen (abridged) Kilbirnie

Unhappy Dear Ed, I am not pleased the seawall repairs will simply restore what was in existence before the breach occurred. At best the sand will keep eroding as it has done since 1935 and we will lose the beach. At worst the wall will eventually succumb, partially or entirely, to the increasing pressures of rising sea levels and more severe

storms, and the debate over "what can we do?" will have to take place all over again. I would like any climate-change deniers on the Island Bay Seawall action group to reread the cautionary tale of King Canute. Marion Findlay Wellington

Great idea Dear Ed, Cheaper buses are such a great. Thank you for this initiative which will be very helpful to all and especially students. Happy to hear the retail sector will benefit. Faye Tohbyn, Wellington

Thank you Dear Ed, As 2015 draws to a close, I write in praise of a group of fine people in the Eastern Suburbs whose work is easily overlooked. They are our dedicated church ministers, Fr Ephrem Tigga of St Patrick’s Catholic, Pastor David Eves of Lyall Bay Baptist, Rev Larry Ashmore of St Jude’s Anglican (Freyberg St), Captain Joe Serevi of Kilbirnie Salvation Army, Rev Simon Winn and Children’s Pastor Rev Chelsea Kirby of All Saints Anglican-Methodist

(Hamilton Rd) and the Rev Falkland Liuvaie of Kilbirnie Presbyterian. They go about their ministry for the good and well-being of all in the Kilbirnie, Lyall Bay and Hataitai community largely under the radar and do so much that mostly goes unnoticed. As we prepare for the wonderful celebration of Christmas, a huge thank you to them all. P Francis Wellington

Marsden Preschoolers, well on their way!

No to the silly season ally have very little solid news to report while Parliament isn't sitting, many shops and factories remain closed, and a great many people take their annual holidays to coincide with the long school holidays. So the media fall back on a great many childish, trivial, boring, or bizarre events that would get little or no reportage for the rest of the year. Doubtless the media are always glad when any disastrous or sensational things occur to break up the flatness that mostly prevails then. However, most Kiwis just love it as a rest-

ful break, usually in fine, warm weather, from the rat-race they endure for the rest of the year. Whether they go away or stay at home for that break, it's generally enjoyed. As the lead-up to Christmas is the most frenzied part of the year, it is certainly not our silly season. I also hope the article was not implying that observing the season of Christ's First Advent, the carols, etc. is silly; because it seems his Second Advent, to confound such scoffers, is now very near. Hector Westfold Miramar

Bring down the seawall Dear Ed, I don’t agree with the seawall being rebuilt. The community had an opportunity to unite the beach with the park and create a

safer beach front by removing the road. This would have the restored natural heritage that predates the wall, resolve the issue of

sand drifting onto the road and create a wonderful Island Bay seafront and an even better community park. Anonymous, Wellington

Waste of money Dear Ed, In the face of climate change, with which we can expect both sea level rise and increased frequency and ferocity of storms, the rebuild is a massive waste of money. Councillor Eagle and Vicki Greco are like King Canute, ordering the sea to stay back. Clearly

a strategic withdrawal from coastal strips is going to be required, and this was a golden opportunity to do that here. The wall should be removed or allowed to fall in to the sea, that section of The Esplanade should be closed to motor traffic, and the dunes

should be allowed to merge with Shorland Park. That proposal was already on the table before the 2013 storm, and the storm was nature’s way of casting a vote for that option. We should listen to her! Andrew Carman Brooklyn

Dear Ed, Re p.20 (Cook Strait News Nov 26), and "carols ready to rock", there’s yet another example of how younger people (notably journalists) misunderstand what many words and phrases mean. This time, somebody insults the season of Advent (the lead-up to Christmas) by alluding to it as "the silly season". Here in New Zealand, our Silly Season means the midsummer period after Christmas Day, from Boxing Day until the beginning of February. The term relates to the media; because they usu-

Back to the community By Nikki Papatsoumas

encouraged to put their hands up for a steering group which will help see governance of the Strathmore Park Community

Locals with bright ideas and a sense of community are

Centre handed back to the community. The Strathmore Park Community Centre was previously

Lisa Matthews says the Wellington City Council is keen to see the Strathmore Park Community Centre return to being managed by the community.

managed by the Strathmore Park Community Base Incorporated. However, they ceased managing the Centre in July 2015 and voted to wind down in October 2015.  The Wellington City Council has managed the centre since. Project co-ordinator for the Strathmore Park Community Centre, Lisa Matthews, said community governance was the preferred model for the operation of the centre. She said the council was now hoping to establish a steering group, to get the ball rolling before handing the centre back to the community. Lisa said the steering group would be responsible for setting the direction and determining the structure of the new organisation. “We are inviting people to join a working group because stuff has to be decided before

there is new management. This includes what is the centre’s purpose? What is its mission? “I’m asking for a working group that can come together and work with the community on those issues.” Lisa said the steering group wou ld work toget her for roughly six months, before a formal group was selected and management was handed back to the community. “This centre has a real heart and I think that the people of Strathmore Park have a real love and a real care for their community and their community centre.”  If you are interested in getting involved in this process or want to know more, please contact Lisa Matthews on 0212479728, at the centre on 04 3882776, or by email lisa.matthews@wcc. govt.nz

Iconic sculpture to be dismantled for repairs Iconic Evans Bay sculpture Akau Tangi is set to be dismantled for repairs. This is due to failures in the section of pipe that supports the cones on the top of the poles. The sculpture, on Cobham Drive, was designed by Phil Dadson and installed in 2010. It features 11 vertical poles with spinning cones attached to each. Wellington City Councillor Ray Ahipene-Mercer said the council had been working on a plan for the sculpture after a weld failure earlier this year.

“Unfortunately we’ve had two cones fall within the last few weeks so we must temporarily take them all down. “Being in Evans Bay, challenged by a wild marine location, does not make it easy on the sculpture but we expect the work should be made to cope with that.” Project Officer of Parks, Sport and Recreation, Victoria Bennett, said taking all the cones down was the most sensible option – for safety and to prevent further damage to the cones. “The cones that fell had safety

lanyards installed after a cone fell in 2013, they helped to contain the fall but didn’t stop them from hitting the ground. “It may take some considerable time before the cones are ready to go back up. “We need to work on a solution for the pipe section, and there are other issues with them not being balanced properly and the wear and tear that has created. But we hope to get this corrected as soon as possible.”  The remaining cones will be taken down in the next two weeks.

Budget adviser set for Strathmore

Minimising waste across the capital

By Nikki Papatsoumas

Popular Wellington events such as the Newtown Festival and the Island Bay Festival have received funding to improve recycling efforts and reduce the amount of waste going to the landfill. This is thanks to $50,000 in support from the Waste Minimisation Seed Fund. Councillor Iona Pannett, Chair of Wellington City Council’s Environment Committee, said the fund helped enhance Wellington’s reputation and encourage leadership in waste minimisation. “It’s fantastic to see the range of applications in this first round of the new fund.  “We know Wellingtonians care about reducing waste and we look forward to seeing even more initiatives coming forward in 2016.”  The fund will support Newtown Festival’s goal in reaching zero waste to landfill, with manned recycling stations, compostable packaging and an extensive public waste audit. The fund comes from landfill levies collected by the Ministry for the Environment and is a part of Wellington’s environmental responsibility. Applicants are invited to apply for the 2016 Waste Minimisation Seed Fund for projects under $2000 between February 1 and May 31 of next year. Applications are considered at the end of each month.

Strathmore locals will soon have the opportunity to uti-

lise the services of a budget adviser. Budget adviser Ma rcus Hull, who volunteers for the

Marcus Hull and Henry Yeoh, from the Citizen's Advice Bureau Wellington (WelCAB) Budget Service, are excited to bring their services to the Strathmore community.

Citizen's Advice Bureau Wellington (WelCAB) Budget Service will now be offering his services out of the Strathmore Park Community Centre. Marcus said he will be available by appointment for anyone that might need assistance with setting a budget, applying for work and income assistance, resolving debts or negotiating with debt collectors or banks. He said credit was “far too accessible” and this was a major problem for many people. “We never tell people there is a right way of budgeting, but there is often better ways,” Marcus said. “I have a big passion for financial literacy… the younger we start the better off we are.” He said he was looking forward to his new role at the community centre.

“I am a local resident and I’ve been seeing a lot of clients from here anyway so I think it will work really well.” Ma nager of WelCA B Budget Service, Henry Yeoh, said advisers were based out of CAB offices across Wellington. Last year they helped 89 clients in the eastern suburbs and this number was growing this year, he said. Henry said WelCAB was approached by the Ministry of Social Development to offer budget advice services out of the Strathmore Park Community Centre and Kilbirnie CAB office. The service is free to the community.  To make an appointment with a budget adviser at Strathmore Park Community Centre or Kilbirnie CAB, call the Kilbirnie CAB on 387 3573.

SPORT

Keep safe while swimming at the beach Kiwis are being reminded to take care while swimming at the beach this summer after drowning was identified as the third greatest cause of accidental deaths in the country. Statistics from Surf Life Saving New Zealand show there have been 16 beach drownings so far this year. As the Christmas holidays approached and Kiwis started planning their summer holidays, Surf Life Saving said it feared a repeat of last year’s high drowning toll. There were 63 drownings in the 2014/15 patrol season, which runs from Labour Weekend to Easter. Of these, 17 were beach drownings. The key risk was the coinciding fine weather with the Christmas and New Year period when people were on holiday and in unfamiliar locations, said Surf Life Saving

New Zealand national lifesaving and education manager Allan Mundy. “Unfortunately, a large number of beachgoers put themselves into unnecessary danger last summer and a large number of rescues took place outside of the traditional flagged patrol area and outside of standard patrol hours.” Mr Mundy said it had been estimated most drownings were preventable. “The number of people that drown each year is higher than the number of people killed in wars and through civil unrest. It also sits as the third greatest cause of accidental death in New Zealand.” Mr Mundy said there were a number of overarching factors that could lead to swimmers getting into trouble, including ignorance or underestimation of their

own ability, misunderstanding or disregard of hazards and the inability to cope when exposed to those hazards. Mr Mundy says those planning their Christmas holidays should take water safety into consideration when planning their beach destination. “The beach is New Zealand's favourite playground but it can also be a dangerous place. Each beach is dangerous in its own right due to environmental factors. “Even waist deep water can be life threatening if you step in a hole or get hit by a large wave. “Learning about the risks and preparing yourself will mean you and your family can enjoy the Christmas holidays more safely.”

Lifeguards stationed at Oriental Bay Beach. Beach goers are reminded to stay safe while using beaches this summer.

Local swimmer returns home after competing in Europe By Nikki Papatsoumas

Samantha Lee, 23, has returned home after competing in surf life saving competitions across Europe.

Local star Samantha Lee has broken a world record she previously set, at a prestigious surf life saving competition held recently in Europe. The Houghton Valley local has recently returned to Wellington after travelling to Europe with the New Zealand Surf Life Saving team, to race at the Orange Cup in The Netherlands and at the prestigious German Cup in Germany. While at the Orange Cup, Lee won gold in both the 100m Rescue Medley and 200m obstacles. She also won silver in the 50m Manikin Carry. At the German Cup, Lee won gold in the 100m Rescue Medley and set a world record.

Sports inbrief Roll on Wellington Awards The Roll on Wellington Awards were held on Tuesday, December 1. Local Regan Dooley and the Island Bay Cycle Way team won the Wellington bike personality of the year award. Regan and

his team were behind the Island Bay Cycle Way website and Facebook page. Judges praised Regan and his team for debunking some myths and supplying the community with facts through the

sites. Runners up were Dan Mikkelsen from Bicycle Junction for his great work supporting everyday cycling, and Amanda Santos for leading accessible beginner mountain bike rides.

She also won gold in the 200m Obstacles, silver in the 200m Supersaver and bronze in the 50m Manikin Carry and 100m Manikin Carry. The 23-year-old said she was chuffed with the results in both competitions. “Those two competitions were some of the biggest surf pool rescue competitions for the year, so those results were awesome. “It was our last opportunity to race against the Europeans before world champs next year, so it's good to have some tough competition and to see where everyone is at.” Lee said she first broke the world record in the 100m Rescue Medley in 2012 and since then had continued to better it.

“At the moment for me, doing a personal best in this event means a new world record, so it's pretty cool that I'm able to keep improving. “It still feels awesome every time I break it and the support and the congratulations from everyone around the pool is unreal.” Lee said her results were beyond what she was hoping for. “It's nice to know that all my hard training is paying off and I'm moving in the right direction.” Lee said her focus will now shift back to swimming ahead of the New Zealand Swimming Champs which double as Olympic Trials in March. “I have a few competitions in Australia in the lead up to those, as well as a lot of hard training.”

Gelato comes to Island Bay A concept shop boasting some of the capital’s most exciting gelato flavours opened on Monday. Nathan Meyer, owner of Carrello del Gelato, is the man behind the Oriental Bay shop which sells gelato, cold and hot drinks and a variety of Italian pizza. Nathan found his passion for gelato in 2002, after travelling to Italy while working for a Mediterranean importer. Nathan said while his gelato was sold at a number of wholesale and retail outlets, he was excited to have the opportunity to sell it by the scoop. Some of the more unique flavours on offer at his new shop include cannoli, mandarin sorbet and grape sorbet. The gelato is made from scratch at a factory in Newtown and has won dozens of awards. Wellington Women’s Refuge manager Philippa McAtee, clinical nurse specialist Jennifer Irving, Maori Women’s Refuge manager Ange Chaney, and violence intervention programme coordinator Rob Veale.

Teaming up to tackle domestic violence Wellington Regional Hospital’s Emergency Department now has around the clock support for victims of domestic violence, thanks to a new partnership with Wellington Women’s Refuge. Now all women over the age of 16 who visit the emergency department will be screened for domestic violence. These women will be given the option of talking to a support person. During the day this will be a social worker from the hospital

and Wellington Women’s Refuge will provide an afterhours service. Wel l i ng ton Women’s Refuge manager Philippa McAtee said the organisation was happy to help. “Within one hour we can get one of our trained volunteers down to the emergency department to provide support to these women – whether it’s just to have a chat, to be put in touch with one of our community social workers, or they need to go to our safe house.”

Clinical nurse specialist Jennifer Irving said the response from emergency department staff performing the screenings has been positive. “We screen for a number of health issues, providing referrals for people who come in as smokers or frail elderly, and we have been thoughtful introducing the screening into the emergency department to ensure there is support for people, and we are able to identify those people who need help.”
