Community celebrates White Ribbon Day By Aaron Meredith

The Wainuiomata community came together to celebrate White Ribbon Day last Sunday when Kokiri and Wainuiomata Marae’s hosted E Tu Whanau. The day included many performances from local artists, along with many locals services in the valley who help those in needs. Kerry Dougall the manager from Naku Enie Tamariki and Kokiri Marae Maori Womens refuge says the day is vital to get the message across. “It is a great way to get what we do to a lot of people.” E Tu Whanau is Wainuiomata’s White Ribbon Day celebration. White Ribbon Day is held annually on November 25 and is a campaign against violence towards women. E Tu Whanau is a celebration of being violence free. “It is a great celebration here today,” says Kerry. “We are here letting people

Organisers of the official opening said they did not open the ceremony to the public due to the lack of parking in the area. This angered the community, who took to social media to vent their anger at the council’s decision.

Boxer wins youth award By Aaron Meredith

L o c a l B oxe r K e eg a n O’Kane-Jones was named as one of the winners for the adversity award at Thursday’s Hut City Youth Awards. The boxer was one of three finalists for the Westpac Award for overcoming adversity, where judges decided to give the award to all three finalists. Jared Gillies and Harmony Daly were the winners alongside Keegan. Keegan was nominated for the award due to overcoming significant social barriers en route to representing New Zealand in the Youth Commonwealth Games this year. He said he was extremely happy to have been announced as one of the winners. “Words can’t explain it really, there is nothing better than winning. “Thanks to Mum, my step dad and the rest of my family, Billy Graham and his wife have been incredible as well,” Keegan says.

Billy Graham was extremely proud of Keegan, he said he has transformed in the time he has known him. “He has been kicked out of the gym before, but he came back with a great attitude and has become a great guy.” Keegan has been boxing for six years, and now has his sights set on qualifying for the Olympics. Another award handed out went to James Biggins, who was given a special award for the work he has done in raising money for Wainuiomata baby Mila Gardner. Mila has been diagnosed with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy, she has to go to the USA for life changing surgery next year. James has been raising money by finding different ways to get to school, including helicopter, kayaking and a police car. Unfortunately James was too young to be nominated but awards creator Chris Bishop decided his story was worthy of the special award.

Keegan O’Kane-Jones was awarded the Hutt City Youth Award for adversity.

The St Patrick’s church on Stanley St is in need of some repair work, and the fundraising committee is doing everything they can to raise the money needed. Parish member David Smith has started a project, gathering metal to be recycled. With the money going back to the church. “Our church has an account with Sims Pacific Metals,” he says.

David’s plan is to get members in his parish to donate any metal, whether it is cans, tins or wires, to the cause to help raise the money needed. “Everything adds up, it all goes towards the cause.” The church needs earthquake strengthening, along with this the entire building will be turned on its current site. “We also are contemplating adding some extensions on the building as well,” says David. The church is part of the

Parish of the Holy Spirit, which encompasses churches in Waiwhetu, Petone, Eastbourne and Lower Hutt. “This initiative will continue once we have earned enough money for the church here in Wainuiomata. “We will start other projects within our parish on top of this.”

If you’re looking for something quieter, Hutt City Libraries’ popular summer reading programmes are back, including The Big Read. Sign up at any local library between 14 December and 10 January. Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace says the summer events are already well underway. “Last month saw the opening of the outdoor summer pools in Wainuiomata, Eastbourne and Petone, and we’ve just had a couple of fantastic Christmas parades. With all these events and the

beautiful scenery Lower Hutt has to offer, there’s no better place to be this summer.” The fun continues in January, as history is brought to life at Our Story, and fun and health are celebrated at the two-day whanau community festival Te Reo o Te Raukura. February brings us the Petone Rotary Fair, sculptures return to Riddiford Gardens for Hutt City Shapeshifter Sculpture 2016, and it’s an awesome day out with Bike the Trail on 28 February. This is only the beginning of the fun to have in Lower Hutt this summer, so keep an eye on facebook.com/inthehutt, and summerinthehutt.co.nz for more.

Christmas has come to town with Christmas parades, the final parade of the season was held Stokes Valley this weekend. There are also pop-up carol events touring all across the city. Santa’s Bach Workshop offers an opportunity to use 3D printers to create all sorts of festive trinkets on Andrews Avenue. Then it all comes together in a Christmas Eve special at the new Walter Nash Centre, with an afternoon of festive fun before a screening of The Polar Express. That’s only the start of the summer festivities, as McEwan Park will echo with the sounds

Family, it is a good excuse to see family, what better excuse could there be?

Time to test Joseph Parker out Darrell Cole plays a shot in last week’s cricket game.

First team draw By Aaron Meredith

The Wainuiomata Cricket Club first team managed a draw in their two day game against Wellington Collegians, last weekend. Both days were played in perfect conditions at Bryan Heath Park, for the bulk of the match the visitors were on top. A first innings total of 239/8 and a strong bowling performance was enough to secure Collegians a strong

lead going into the second innings. Wainuiomata then improved on the bowling side, but were never really in with a shout of gaining a result. The next game for the first team is against Eastern Suburbs at Kilbirnie Park on both December 12 and 19. Play starts at 12pm both days. The Wainuiomata second team had a disappointing match, batting first the side only posted a total of 67. A decent bowling performance kept the side in the game, but Upper Hutt

proved to have enough skill eventually winning by 4 wickets. Next week the side is at Bryan Heath Park against Wellington Indians Thumbs Up, at 1pm. In the T/20 competition Browine had a close 3 run win over Taita Squashies, Rosco had a bye over the week. Next week Brownie plays Stokes Valley at Bryan Heath Park, Rosco is away at Fraser Park against Taita, both games start at 2pm.

Junior softball results By Aaron Meredith

This weekend the Wainuiomata junior softballers were as busy as ever. The Under 15’s defeated the Hutt Valley Dodgers Mighty Maniacs 22-2, destroying their opposition.

The Under 13’s were not as successful, going down to Te Aroha Whio 13-3. There was a win and a loss for the Under 11’s, Green destroyed Te Aroha Kea 24-1 while Black went down 16-8 to Hutt Valley Marist.

Juniors celebrate at pools The juniors at Wainuiomata High School celebrated the end of the school year at the Wainuiomata Summer Pools. The children spent the day flying down the slides, and jumping into the pools. Along with the students, the teachers got to let down their hair as well, spending the day with the children, challenging them to bomb contests and swimming round with the children. The school year ends this week with the junior prize giving this Friday.

The Under 9 Cubs and Lions faced off this weekend, the cubs won 26-14 in an entertaining game. The Bears defeated the Hutt Valley Dodgers Dozen 24-13. For next week’s draws please contact your coach.

Last Saturday Joseph Parker destroyed another no name boxer and improved his record to 17-0. He is the number 9 ranked heavyweight boxer on the boxrec website, a website known for providing accurate ratings when comparing every boxer. His last bout was against Daniel Martz, ranked a lowly 125th in the same rankings. I understand the fight was scheduled with Martz so Parker could match up with a fighter taller than him, but this was a bit of a mismatch still. Joseph is not ready to have a bout against new World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury, former champion Wladimir Klitschko or another big name like Deontay Wilder, but he is definitely ready for a step up in class of boxer. An interesting challenge could be the unbeaten Luis Ortiz, a record of 23-0 with 20 knock outs, he could prove to be a massive challenge for Parker, he needs to overcome a boxer like Ortiz to really stake a claim at being a contender. Another could be Anthony Joshua, who at 14-0 is taking a similar career path to Parker, these two need to collide in the future. Just above Joseph Parker in the rankings is Erkan Tepar from Germany, at 15-0 he is another boxer that our local boxer should be looking to prove himself against. At the moment his next bout is against American Jason Bergman, who has a record of 25-11 and is rated 75th in the world. It would be more use to Parker fighting someone like Alex Leapai, who only last year fought for the World Heavyweight Championship. Yes he is only ranked 59th in the world, but he has big fight experience, and with a record of 30-7, provides another veteran opponent for the young New Zealander. It is only by stepping up the quality of his opponents will we truly see the quality that Joseph Parker posseses.
