Newtown blanks it out Church doors By Nikki Papatsoumas

Wellington is one step closer to eradicating unsightly graffiti thanks to a brand new initiative. Wellington City Council has recently developed its first graffiti volunteer programme called ‘Blank It Out’. Blank it Out aims to increase the amount of graffiti removed from private properties in neighborhoods across the capital, while encouraging more community ownership and pride. Individual residents, neighborhood groups, businesses, schools, service organisations and clubs were all encouraged to volunteer. Once on board, volunteers were asked to participate in activities which included spotting and reporting graffiti and coordinating local removal projects. There were no minimum time requirements or expectations from volunteers and those involved could pick jobs that best suited them. The programme, based on a similar project

in Christchurch, was launched last Saturday at the Newtown School Markets. Saturday’s launch coincided with International Volunteer Day and the quarterly ‘Keep Newtown Clean’ initiative. Wellington City Councillor Paul Eagle, chair of the council committee responsible for city safety, said community ownership and pride were key drivers behind the programme. “For zero tolerance to work, we need a community-led approach. That means working together with local businesses and residents, key groups and our contractor to give consistent advice on how to tackle graffiti effectively. “Blank it Out will make it simple for people to volunteer. People can commit to activities ranging reporting graffiti, to coordinating local removal projects.”  For more information about the programme and to volunteer visit wellington.

open for special service

By Nikki Papatsoumas

The doors to St Christopher’s Church in Seatoun will open for the first time in three years at a special Christmas service next week. In 2012 St Christopher’s Church was locked to the congregation after it was deemed unsafe and stamped with a yellow sicker by the Wellington City Council. After fighting to save the historic building, locals were thrilled when it was announced the church and neighbouring hall were purchased by Sir Peter Jackson and his wife Fran Walsh earlier this year. St Christopher’s congregation was dissolved as a parish in July 2013 and the site is now leased to the Miramar Peninsula Community Trust. Secretary of the trust, Elaine Newson, said next Friday’s Christmas Carols in the building was set to be a very special occasion. She said although the church building still needed earthquake strengthening, the doors to the church could finally be opened to the public after many years.

Friday’s event would begin with a gathering in the church hall from 7.30pm, Elaine said. The Carol Service would then kick off at 8.30pm, conducted by the Reverend Ross Scott, Presbyterian Hospital Chaplain. Meanwhile, the church organ would be played by Dr Ron Newton, an authority on pipe organs in New Zealand. She said past parishioners of the church and members of the community were all invited to come along and celebrate. Elaine said she hoped guests would have special stories to share at the event. “It’s a non-denomination church now, everyone is welcome and we would like to see people who have past association with the church and have a family connection. “A lot of them all have stories of how they used to attend the service. Those are the stories we like to hear.”  Are you excited to hear the doors to St Christopher’s will once again be opened? Send us an email – news@

New garden for school students

Lesson in manners By Nikki Papatsoumas

St Mark’s students are more polite than ever following a lesson in etiquette last week. Year 3 teacher Jacinta Zogg said she recently read a news article about Ana Maria Moore, a Wellingtonian who was born into diplomacy and promoted manners and etiquette. “I reflected on the idea that it could be something which my students may be interested in. “We emailed Ana Maria and asked her if she would like to come and speak with us.” Last Friday Ana Maria visited St Mark’s School to speak to the year 3 class. Ana Maria said she was born into diplomacy and from a very early age ceremonies, manners and good

Students at St Mark’s had the opportunity to learn all about etiquette at a special lesson last week run by Ana Maria Moore.

behaviour was “the order of the day”. “I grew up with that so I think it’s my legacy in life to teach good manners and etiquette to children and teenagers.” As part of last week’s lesson she taught students about manners, about be-

ing respectful and how to behave at the table. The year 3 class also had the opportunity to ask Ana Maria questions they had prepared about manners and etiquette. Jacinta said following Ana Maria’s visit, students began using the language they

had heard and were putting into practice some of the messages they had learned during Ana Maria's presentation. “We are very grateful for Ana Maria's generosity, giving of her time and knowledge to promote manners and etiquette.”

Island Bay School students have a brand new school garden to look forward to. The school is one of 27 across the country to receive a share of $100,000. The money was raised by Caltex customers in this year’s ‘Fuel Your School’ initiative. The grant will contribute toward the school’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics curriculum and will help to fund a new school garden. Island Bay School Principal, Perry Rush, said children at the school were excited to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty. “We are proud to be recipients of a grant from Caltex that will help us build a school garden and grow it into a flourishing ‘garden to table’ enterprise. “We are looking forward to the students of Island Bay School learning that food doesn't magically appear in supermarkets and that hard graft leads to a great and delicious reward.” For more information about Fuel Your School, visit

Having a go in the water The instructors at Little Makos Swim School are passionate about getting local youngsters in the water and swimming with confidence. The programme, a community partnership between Berhampore School and Harbour City Water Polo Club, has classes for children aged from six months to 14 years.

The dedicated staff are focused on building confidence in the water and teaching children to swim. The pool is a beautiful 17 metre long by 4.5m wide facility. Thanks to a significant grant from Wellington City Council the pool now has a retractable roof so on those hot summer days and cold winter nights

the youngsters can still work on their swimming skills. The adventure playground, next door to the pool, means after swimming lessons the kids can go and have a fun play. So with great instructors and amazing facilities Makos Swim School really is the place for your kids to get their

Locals are encouraged to have their say when it comes to facilities for their pet pooches across the capital. Last month, the Wellington City Council reviewed its animals bylaw and dog policy, which determines the requirements for keeping dogs and other animals. Main issues which would be explored in terms of the dog policy review were adequacy of dog exercise areas, registration fees, dog faeces and access to public places Wellington City Councillor Simon Marsh said council officers were currently putting together a proposal which would be out for consultation to the public next May. The councillor, who has a twoyear-old retriever named Charlie, said it was important people had their say when it came to their pets. “What I encourage the public to do over the next couple of months, is get in touch,” Simon said. Simon said he wanted to know what the public wanted to see – whether it was added dog exercise areas or beaches where dogs could be off leash. “Being able to let your dog off the lead is an important thing because they get to run and do stuff they need to be doing.” He also asked for suggestions on whether signage at dog parks was

adequate, whether parks should have water taps for dogs and if dog fees were value for money. “No idea is a silly idea,” he said. Alice Collard coordinates Small Dogs Socials, a social walking group for small dogs and their owners in Wellington. She said despite being a Wellington based group, most of her walks were held in the Hutt Valley because dog exercise areas in the city were “inadequate”. “The fenced dog park at Greta Point being a classic example, it is largely just a big mud pit through overuse.”


in time for Christmas!

She said most exercise areas for dogs in Wellington had insufficient fencing, parking, toilets or accessibility for those with young children or mobility issues. “We don't need more dog exercise areas, we need quality areas with durable surfaces, good fencing, accessibility, safety (for dog and owner) and fixed agility activities so you can still use the space if there is no one else there for your dog to socialise with.”  Do you think dog exercise areas in Wellington are adequate?

Christmas Food Rescue Appeal kicks off Countdown and the Salvation Army have kicked off their annual Christmas Food Rescue Appeal to help the growing number of New Zealanders who have registered for food assistance. Countdown is encouraging shoppers to make a food donation in-store, or a cash donation at the checkout as part the annual Food Rescue Appeal. The Salvation Army’s National Secretary for Social Services, Major Pamela Waugh, said around 26,000 families would ask for food assistance by the end of December.

“Many families come to us with complicated debt issues that need in depth work over a long period. “Most of those very fragile families have no disposable income for Christmas while other families are only just surviving on their income and need extra assistance. Major Waugh says celebrating Christmas is important for a child’s social inclusion. “Our food hampers usually contain meat, vegetables, dessert, fruit and treats that allow families to mark

Christmas as a special occasion. “Without this some families have a bleak Christmas that’s just a normal day. When school starts in the New Year, other children are talking about their fun Christmas and holidays. What do these children have to contribute if their Christmas has been a non-event?” The most needed food items for the Christmas Food Rescue Appeal include pasta and rice, cereal, canned food, sauces and spreads, baby food and toiletries, hygiene and cleaning products including nappies.

“Christmas means special times with family and friends and getting to relax.”

“Having some good quality time with family, good food and wine and a holiday.”

“Excitement of seeing children being excited for Christmas.”

“Spending time with people you love.”

“I feel quite homesick at Christmas so making it feel like I am at home and getting someone something nice is important.”

Elman Avallone Kilbirnie “I think the young ones prefer the presents but as you get older you appreciate family more.”

LETTERS to the editor No smoking in bus stops Dear Ed, I am glad to finally have a say on smoking in bus stops. I find the worst bus stops for these acrid fumes are outside Reading Cinemas and outside Unity Bookshop in Willis St. as well as the entranceway to the internet cafe opposite Dick Smiths in Manners Mall. The smell makes me feel very sick. At the internet cafe the smoke drifts up the stairs to where you are on the computers. Anonymous Wellington

Wellington a “mess” Dear Ed, I have a great idea for the cat clown collars. Make them a little larger and make each of the city councillors wear one. This will alert us all to who has made all the crazy decisions that is making Wellington a mess with the changes to the roading system in town and of course the over the top hump system in Island Bay shopping centre, where I have yet to see anyone exceed 30km/h due to the shape of the road.

Brigid Kean began volunteering at Kilmarnock Heights Home when she was pregnant with her daughter. More than two years later she still visits the home on a regular basis, with her daughter Jeanie Anderson in tow. Brigid and Jeanie have grown to know staff and residents at the Berhampore home so well, they helped celebrate Jeanie’s second birthday last Friday, at a special party complete with fairy bread, ice blocks and cake. Brigid said she initially began volunteering at Kilmarnock Heights Home because she lives close by and it was always something she wanted to do. She said over the years she had grown to consider staff and residents as part of the family. “It is such a warm homely environment. Both her grandparents don’t live in Wellington so I like that she can spend time with older people.” Brigid has even recruited her friend Marie Jones and her daughter Edie Elliott Jones to volunteer with her. Recreation officer at Kilmarnock Heights Home Annelize Steyn said they regarded volunteers such as Brigid, Jeanie, Marie and Edie as family.

Seawall upgrade continues

The eagerly anticipated reconstruction work on the Island Bay Seawall is in full swing. A large section of the 350 metre wall was damaged in a storm that battered Wellington’s south coast in 2013. Contractors Fulton Hogan began work on repairing the wall last month and are currently on site

between Monday and Saturday from 7.30am to 5pm. However, work will stop for two weeks over the Christmas and New Year period. Work on the wall is expected to be completed in midJune 2016. Have you checked out construction work on the Island Bay seawall? Send us an email –

REPORTERS DESK - WITH NIKKI PAPATSOUMAS Christmas is just two weeks away and it makes me wonder – where does the year go! Every year I am surprised the festive season manages to creep up so quickly. As always around this time of year we are inundated with Christmas stories from across the southern and eastern suburbs. It is always wonderful to be part of other people’s Christmas celebrations, whether they’re putting together community carols, or gathering presents to donate to charities in need

,so keep sending your wonderful news tips in. As part of Christmas celebrations this year, the team at the Cook Strait News would love to find Wellington’s best Christmas tree. If you think your tree is truly something special we would love to see it! Send us an email at We would also love to hear about how you celebrate Christmas. For me it’s around the barbecue (my dad makes an amazing barbecue!) and outside in the sun with family in Island Bay. So if you would like to share your Christmas stories we would love to hear them.

Deputy Mayor Justin Lester throws his hat in the ring.

Deputy Mayor vies for top spot By Sharnahea Wilson

Deputy Mayor Justin Lester is looking to knock Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown off her seat in next year’s elections, after announcing he would be making a bid for the mayoralty. Justin said he fell in love with Wellington the first time he visited as a child. This love for the capital has helped spark his decision to run for mayor under a Labour ticket in next year’s local government elections. Justin has served as a northern ward councillor for two terms and in his most recent term was selected by Celia as her deputy. Although this is the first time Justin has announced his af-

filiations with the Labour Party, he said his values have always been clear. “I stand for future ideals. "That means tackling our problems around housing and transport. “It means doing more to support local businesses, especially small businesses, to grow our economy and create good jobs.” Wellington can be the best place in the world for people to live, work and do business, Justin said. Justin said if elected he will prioritise jobs, investment in local businesses and a pest free environment. Celia, who will be standing for her spot again next year, called Justin “the most convincing of

the other candidates so far”. “He will certainly get my number two vote.” A good competition will increase turnout which is good for democracy, Celia said, adding “if I’m elected again I’ll definitely consider Justin as the most likely deputy, depending on his plans for 2017”. Justin said Wellington needs a new mayor who can provide bold leadership to make Wellington City even better. "It’s a place where everything’s possible and everyone wants you to succeed. “It's a quirky, diverse and generous city, and together we can make it even better. "That's why I'm running for mayor."

Council sifts for clues on illegal rubbish dumping Illegal dumping of rubbish by some inner-city residents and businesses is worsening, making it difficult and expensive to keep the city looking clean. Wellington City Council manages the city’s waste, including the collection and management of household rubbish and recycling. The council said over the past two years there had been an upsurge in the dumping of rubbish on CBD streets by people who used unmarked rubbish bags. The council’s environment committee chair councillor Iona Pannett, said the problem was costing the council – and ratepayers – thousands of dollars each week as contractors and staff worked extra hours to keep the city clean. “On top of this, the council faces spending $100,000 a year in landfill costs to get rid of the additional rubbish, and loses almost $80,000 in revenue from people not paying for yellow bags. “The council has to get rid of the rubbish to keep the streets tidy, but catching the dumpers has proved a challenge. “It’s frustrating because we have no choice – we have to get it off the street,” she said. Council staff were now working to identify who was responsible by looking for evidence of ad-

dresses within the unofficial bags. The first time a household or business was caught illegally dumping rubbish, a warning letter would be sent. However, if a household or business was caught repeatedly dumping rubbish, they would be fined, Iona said. The council was asking central city residents and property owners to help keep the city clean by making sure they, or their tenants, had the correct information on rubbish and recycling. In the central city, residents’ rubbish must be left on the footpath next to the kerb between 5.30pm and 10pm in official yellow rubbish bags purchased from supermarkets, dairies and the Council Service Centre at 101 Wakefield Street. The council also warned recycling must be cleaned and sorted into clear plastic bags and put out on Tuesday evenings between 5.30pm and 10pm.

Pop a present under the ‘giving tree’ By Nikki Papatsoumas

A local business is encouraging the community to light up a child’s life this Christmas by contributing to its ‘giving tree’. Headstart Hair Design in Kilbirnie has erected a ‘giving tree’ inside the salon. Salon coordinator Taryn Penfold said the tree was covered in gift tags for children between the ages of five and 16.

She said the idea was for staff, clients and members of the community to collect a gift tag, buy a present and place it under the tree. All presents would then be donated to the Salvation Army in Kilbirnie, so they could be distributed to children this Christmas. Taryn said this was the second year they had erected a giving tree after it proved wildly successful last year. “We also choose to help older kids, as we

Celebrating 800th anniversary of the Magna Carter A large group of local lawyers will celebrate the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta in song. The Magna Carta of 1215 is widely regarded as the foundation stone of democracy and the rule of law. Next Tuesday, more than 60 Wellington lawyers will celebrate its anniversary with the ‘Counsel in Carol’ event. The event will form part of worldwide Magna Carta celebrations this year. The concert will feature works associated with freedom and personal liberty, including Verdi’s Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves and Beethoven’s Ode to Joy from his 9th Symphony. The centrepiece of the concert is what the organisers believe to be the New Zealand premiere of Kurt Weill’s Ballad of Magna Carta - a 15 minute cantata for orchestra, choir and soloists dramatically telling the story of the sealing of the Magna Carta in 1215. Counsel in Concert is based at Crown Law and has been running since 2009. The choir and orchestra are comprised of lawyers from throughout the Wellington region and law staff from Crown Law, augmented by members of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Wellington. The event is a charity concert raising funds for the Child Cancer Foundation Counsel in Concert will be held next Tuesday, December 15 at 12.30pm and 5.30pm at St Andrew’s on The Terrace. Entry by donation and all proceeds to the Child Cancer Foundation.

Grant for residents association The Island Bay Residents’ Association has been granted a $1500 operational grant by the Wellington City Council. President Vicki Greco said the association was pleased to have received the grant, which would be used towards building a website and getting things off the ground. She said the association was now focusing on going out to the community to see what they would like to see happen in Island Bay. Suggestions would be used to develop a 10 year plan for Island Bay, which will then be presented to council, Vicki said. The next meeting of the Island Bay Residents’ Association will be held on December 14, from 7pm, at the Mornington Golf Club.

feel that they are sometimes overlooked for present donations, as teenagers can sometimes be more difficult to buy for,” Taryn said.  If you would like to place a present under the giving tree, pop into Headstart Hair Design at 10 Rongotai Rd in Kilbirnie, before Saturday December 19.

Short courses for adults more popular than ever Last week, the Community Education Centre at Wellington launched its 2016 programme of short courses for adults. This year more than 60 new courses have been introduced alongside those that continue to be popular in the community. Director of the Community Education Centre at Wellington High School, Colin Wharton, said it has been five challenging years since substantial funding was removed from the community education

sector. Colin said over twenty secondary schools in the Wellington region offered short courses for adults before the cuts in 2009. Only Wellington High School and Tawa College remain today, he said. “Numbers of students taking our courses have dropped each year since 2009 however, this year has seen an enrolment rise for the first time since the 2009 cuts took place. “We continue to be amazed at both the skills people are willing to


Carols in Island Bay The Island Bay churches are again combining to offer a relaxing evening of Christmas carols, games and a community barbecue in what has become a fun annual event. The whole community is invited to St Hilda’s Anglican Church, at 5pm, 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. S au s a g e s , co f f e e , soft drinks and ice cream will be provided. The service starts at 6pm.

offer others through their tutoring, as well as the courses in demand by those from late teens through to retirement” Colin said locals were choosing short courses, as adults look to use discretionary income for both recreational and further learning. Others simply wanted time to relax while learning a new skill where they can enjoy things such as art, crafts, music, dance and drama.  For more information, head to

Recognising generous young people Wellington City Council is partnering with local secondary schools to recognise generous young people with Absolutely Positively Student Awards. Mayor of Wellington Celia Wade-Brown launched the award programme in 2014, which is open to students in years 10 to 12 who have contributed positively to their school or local community. Schools are invited to select their award recipients and honour them at their end of year prize giving. Celia said it was important to recognise young people who had gone out of their way to do something kind for another student, a teacher, their school or wider community. “This award was established to acknowledge students for their acts of kindness, self less and community-mindedness, irrespective of any other achievements. “Some recipients may also be top sportspeople,

others have two left feet. Some might be academically brilliant or artistic. The main thing is that they all have big hearts.” There are 12 Wellington schools participating in the council-driven scheme this year. Awards have already been given out at a number of schools across the region including Wellington East Girls’ and Scots colleges. Seven more schools will present their awards before the end of the year. Recipients were chosen by their schools for reasons such as an outstanding contribution to the school, volunteering, a kind deed, or community advocacy. In addition to the trophy and movie tickets the winners receive, they are also invited to meet with councillors and council officers in the New Year to discuss issues that are important to them, their peers and their educational communities.

Rosey shoots for the top By Nikki Papatsoumas

A talented teen from the eastern suburbs has been selected to travel to Australia to develop her basketball skills. Rosey Serevi, 13, has been selected as part of a team who will travel to Australia for the New Zealand U16 Koru Development Tour in January. The trip will involve four days of training and the team will also compete in the Australian Cup against a number of Australian regional teams. The Wellington East Girls’ College student was initially selected as a reserve after attending a development camp in Palmerston North earlier this year. However, last week she got notice she had been called up to the team. Rosey is now asking for members of the community to help her in her quest to fundraise the $3600 needed for the trip. Rosey’s mum, Jeannine, said they had already planned a garage sale and two sausage sizzles

outside Countdown Kilbirnie on December 20 and 24. She also appealed to members of the community for their help. “I am really hoping their might be some people within the Kilbirnie community who love basketball and think Rosey is worth investing in,” Jeannine said. Rosey said she played mini ball since she was six years old, but it was only in recent years that she made the jump to basketball. She has since played basketball for Wellington Basketball U13 and U15 teams. Rosey said it was a dream come true to be one of just two girls selected from Wellington to make the squad. “I was very excited it’s really cool to get the opportunity to represent our country and the sport that I love.” The teen, who also plays netball and volleyball, said she sees a bright future for herself in the sport. “It would be really cool if one day I could get a scholarship to go play over in America.”

Rosey Serevi has been selected for NZ U16 Koru Development Tour in Australia

Sports inbrief Softball results

There is a double header in P1 softball this week, with action on both Saturday and Sunday. Poneke Kilbirnie play the Hutt Valley Dodgers on Saturday, the game will be played at Haitaitai Park with the first pitch thrown at 2pm. Miramar travels to Fraser Park to match up against Hutt City United at 3.30pm. On Sunday Miramar is at home on the Polo Grounds against the Johnsonville Blue Jays at 1pm. Poneke Kilbirnie travels to the Hutt Valley to play Hutt City United at Fraser Park beginning at 3pm.

Cricket Results

The Eastern Suburbs premier side had a victory on Saturday in a close fought encounter. The two wicket win over Victoria University means the side remains in second on the table after eight matches. The premier reserve side could not replicate the premiers result, going down to Victoria University by 71 runs. The side is now third on the table.

Outstanding results for local life savers Fresh out of hosting the first junior carnival for the season, the Worser Bay Surf Life Saving Club has started the season strong. Club coach Lizzy Bunckenburg said all surf clubs in the Kapiti Coast region as far up as Foxton competed at the carnival late last month. The club had 43 competitors between the ages of seven and 14 taking place, she said. “We had outstanding results. We started this season quite strong and we are probably starting a little stronger than last year. This sets up the team really well for the

remainder of the season. “Last season we finished third in the capital coast competition ahead of clubs that are much bigger. As a team we will be aiming to back that up this year.” Lizzy said the life guarding season was also soon set to begin. This meant fully trained surf life savers from the club would be manning Scorching Bay Beach at the weekend and on public holidays between 1pm and 5pm. The club’s season runs from October to March.  For more information, head to

The Wellington Fencing Club has returned from the 2015 Australia Koala Mini International Fencing Competition with a suitcase of medals. Coach Ping Yuan said the competition, held last month, was the biggest event for young fencers in Australasia, with more than 300 fencers competing from 10 countries around the world.

Rata Studio open day success

Late last month Rata Studios in Strathmore held their very first Open Day. Well over 100 people checked out the creative arts facilities and the talented tutors who were showcasing their courses on the day. Musicians Leigh Jackson, Ed Zuccollo, Reuben Bradley, Mark Bobb and Paloma Bruce talked about the new Rata School of Music and treated visitors to some great music. Meanwhile actor and comedian, Cohen Holloway, led Rata’s teen acting course which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Perry Piercy led a session in voice over technique in the recording studio where some new talent was spotted. Jess Weichler ran a fun session in stop motion animation and Jo Rogers worked with budding young actors.
