Yes to lower speed limits By Nikki Papatsoumas

Local business owners in the small suburb of Berhampore say the announcement of lower speed limits in their neighbourhood could help give the community its own identity. Last week the Wellington City Council confirmed the speed limit in the shopping areas of Berhampore, Khandallah, Ngaio, Northland, and Wadestown would be reduced from 50km/h to 30km/h. It also announced it would extend the existing 50km/h area northwards along Happy Valley Road. The safer speed limits in these areas will come into effect in early 2016. The Wellington City Council said the decision was in response to overwhelming support from the community to lower speed limits in these neighbourhoods. It said 81 per cent of the 391 submissions received from each of the five areas, were in favour of lowering the speed limits. This comes after a total of 68 crashes resulting in injury were reported in or near these five shopping areas from 2007 to 2013. Of these crashes, 18 caused injuries to pedestrians. Wellington City Councillor David Lee said a lower speed

limit in Berhampore would help make the suburb a destination, while keeping residents, motorists and cyclists safe. “I have spoken to quite a few local personalities. They do actually want to make this suburb a place to stop rather than a thoroughfare between the two bigger areas of Newtown and Island Bay.” Owners of Adelaide Trading Co. Licensed Delicatessen, Z Snook and John Heald, have also welcomed the decision.

The men said they jumped at the opportunity to invest in a local business earlier this year and hoped slower speed zones would help attract more business. “I think it’s great, just popping across the road to post a letter can sometimes take a wee while and accidents happen,” Z said. John said lower speed limits were just what was needed in the community and he hoped it would help Berhampore adopt

its own identity and market the suburb as a destination. “[Berhampore] is old school and it is up and coming, it’s a small wee village… anything that gives an area an identity in a positive fashion is a good idea, as long as it is done with taste and style.” Other Wellington suburbs with lower speed limits already in place include Brooklyn, Hataitai, Island Bay, Kilbirnie, Miramar, Newtown, Seatoun and Strathmore Park.

$12.3 million to redevelop two Wellington schools A share of $12.3 million will see a new two-storey block, safer drop-off areas and a sheltered outdoor recreation centre for Newtown School. Earlier this week, Associate Education Minister Nikki Kaye, announced the government would invest $12.3 million to redevelop Newtown School and Ngaio School. Ms Kay said the redevelopments would help address

roll growth and a range of building and site issues, including weathertightness and structural strengthening. She said it would also create exciting new innovative learning environments for students. “An $8.9 million redevelopment of Newtown School will see temporary buildings at the school replaced with new flexible learning spaces, including a new Maori im-

mersion unit. “A two-storey block at the school was demolished in 2011 following a seismic review, and the school has since been using a number of temporary learning spaces,” Ms Kay said. She said the redevelopment would see a new two-storey block built, along with sheltered outdoor recreation areas and safe drop-off areas.

NOW SHOWING JAMES BOND: SPECTRE (PG) - MON: 3:00PM • TUE: 3:00PM

“Plans for the redevelopment aim to make the most of the school’s small compact site, and also allow for future roll growth,” she said. Since early November more than $83 million worth of school redevelopments in Wellington have been announced. Construction at Newtown School is expected to start late in 2016.

inbrief news Wellington Zoo retains carboNZero certification Wellington Zoo is thrilled to have again achieved carboNZero certification, after becoming the first zoo in the world to be carboNZero certified in May 2013. Wellington Zoo chief executive, Karen Fifield, said regaining certification for each financial year showed Wellington Zoo was leading the way in sustainability. “Conservation is at the heart of everything we do, and this achievement shows how very seriously we take our commitment to minimising the Zoo’s environmental impact.”

Pasifika Patrollers celebrate a year of service By Nikki Papatsoumas

A local group which works to keep Wellington’s Pasifika community safe recently celebrated a year of service. The Pasifika Patrollers is a voluntary service which works to keep Pacific people safe and crime free in Wellington’s communities. There are more than 33 men and woman involved in the service. Together they patrol Wellington’s CBD on Saturday night and attend community events and festivals across the city. The establishment of the Pasifika Patrollers was a joint project between Wellington Police,

Wellington City Council and Wellington’s Pasifika communities in partnership with Community Patrol New Zealand. A recruitment drive for volunteers began in November last year and recently Wellington’s Pasifika communities, police and civic leaders celebrated the first anniversary of the service. Project coordinator Constable Loletta Hunt-Tevaga introduced the initiative to the capital last year. She said she was interested in adopting the model in Wellington after seeing it work successfully in Auckland. “The reason being was because I found that Pasifika youth were getting the attention of police

here in Wellington. “Over the last year they have been received really well not only by Pasifika people but by the whole community.” Councillor Paul Eagle, chair of the committee responsible for city safety and member of the city’s Pasifika Advisory Group, said the initiative ushered in a new era of leadership for Wellington’s Pasifika communities. “This initiative is about Pasifika people owning the issues that impact on their communities – and responding in a culturally appropriate way.” He said the Pasifika Patrollers empowered pacific people to prevent crime and victimisation because talking with someone

of the same culture provided the understanding, support and encouragement needed to make good choices. “The patrollers look out for vulnerable people, people at risk and the young so they can offer support and guidance. They are well respected within their communities.

“They know the families and with their unique Pacific approach, have made a big difference.”  People wanting to become a Pasifika Patroller can contact Constable Loletta HuntTevaga on 04 381 2000 or at Loletta.Hunt-Tevaga@police. govt.nz

The improvements along The Parade are on track to be finished before the Island Bay Festival in mid-February next year. Improvements include kerbside cycle lanes between Shorland Park and the Dee Street roundabout, four new pedestrian crossings, intersection improvements and concrete paths. Andy warned people to take extra care parking and getting

in and out of cars in the newly marked bays. “If you’re on a bike and trying out new sections of lane, be aware you will need to negotiate a mix of new and old facilities until the construction work is finished.” The construction team will be taking a break over the Christmas and New Year period from December 23 and will be back on January 5.

Island Bay cycleway begins to take shape Kerbside bike lanes are beginning to appear while new pedestrian crossings and concrete bike paths are nearing completion on The Parade in Island Bay. Road markings will continue to be put in place one block at a time until February with the section between Dee Street and the shopping centre already completed. New parking bays are clearly marked out from the kerb, creat-

ing a lane next to the footpath for people on bikes. Chair of the Wellington City Council’s transport and urban development committee Councillor Andy Foster, said these improvements are examples of the kinds of changes Wellingtonians will soon see in other places around the city. “It’s about taking a fresh look at the road and footpath space we

have and how we can best use it to improve transport choices.” One of the things people like most about Wellington is its compact nature and the relatively short distances they have to travel to get to work, study and other places, Andy said. “Better walking and cycling routes will just add to its appeal and make the city an even more attractive place to live and visit.”

Dr Mike Rabih, Dr Prithika Vijayan and the team wish all of our clients and community a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Appointments are available up to and including 24 December, and we re-open for appointments on 5 January 2016. New Patients Welcome! School Children 13-18 years free!

Pack the Bus a success The iconic Christmas food appeal, ‘Pack the Bus’ has had another successful year. For the last 23 years Pack the Bus has been collecting donations from around Wellington for the Wellington City Mission in the lead up to Christmas. Its last day for collection this year was December 4 and organisers said they were once again overwhelmed with the generosity displayed by many Wellingtonians. Wellington City Councillor Simon Marsh dreamed up the idea more than two decades ago. He said he came up with the idea when former Wellington City Missioner Father Des Britten said to him, “If we had a bus load of food we would be right”. Simon has been involved in one way or another with the Pack the Bus initiative every year since its inception, beginning in his days as a presenter on More FM. The Breeze radio station now manages and staffs the Go Wellington Bus with personalities, singers and Santa. “It was obvious. We just needed a bus so I went out and borrowed one. The bus became my studio for two weeks; we’d take it to businesses and schools, they were happy to do the collecting and we put some fun into the day.” Simon said this year Welling-

inbrief news Movie Museum and Convention Centre Last week the Wellington City Council announced plans to build a combined movie museum and convention centre in Wellington. At an extraordinary meeting held last week, the Wellington City Council voted unanimously to purchase land opposite Te Papa, between Wellington’s Cable and Wakefield Streets. The council has agreed in principle to build a movie museum together with a new

purpose-built convention centre on the site. Meanwhile, the council will partner with private interests headed by Sir Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, Sir Richard Taylor, and Tania Rodger, to deliver the movie museum, which will celebrate the film heritage of Wellington, identifying the capital as the home of film where five of the world’s 12 highestgrossing films of all time were produced.

Neighbours Day grants More than 27 events across the city have received funding to celebrate Neighbours Day Aotearoa 2016.

tonians were so generous, the bus had to be emptied three times over two weeks. Chief executive of the Wellington City Mission, Michelle Branney, said it was great to have Pack the Bus as part of the mission’s Christmas Star Appeal. “It’s a great opportunity for the

community to participate in the act of Christmas giving, and through The Mission, food, gifts and goodwill are distributed to those in need. “But the goodwill extends well beyond Christmas – the food donations help stock our Foodbank so we can help those in need going into next year too.”

Masons Lane makeover Masons Lane, a popular pedestrian link between The Terrace and Lambton Quay has been given a stylish new look thanks to painting, paving and feature lighting. The transformation is one of many set to revitalise the city’s hidden passageways. The lane’s most innovative feature is a 24 hour digital screen dedicated to moving image

art. Known as Masons Screen, the project is a partnership between the Council and Circuit Artist Film and Video Aotearoa and will showcase 12 new and existing works in its pilot year, including three specially commissioned pieces. Masons Lane was officially opened on Wednesday, with a blessing and short presentation.

10 year plan proposed for Island Bay A 10 year plan for Island Bay was the main topic of discussion at Monday’s meeting of the Island Bay Residents Association. President of the association, Vicki Greco, said the association intended to go out to the community, to consult and then determine their vision of Island Bay. “This will include economic growth, recreation and the look and feel of Island Bay as a whole.” Vicki said residents already had plenty of interesting ideas which could be included in the plan. “It’s the village, it’s the beach and people have suggested that maybe down by the beach they have things where people can hire kayaks. A coffee shop and more business by the beach which could be shut down in the winter months has also been suggested. “The community centre itself is not big enough. The surf club could be a good viable option as a community centre and a focal point of the community.” Consultation will begin in February at the Island Bay Festival, Vicki said and recommendations for what a 10 year plan would involve would only be accepted by members of the community. She said the association would have also designed its website and Facebook page by February, as another way of reaching out to the community. “We want to work with the council to deliver what the community wants, not

what has been imposed on us. “This is the most important thing we will do for Island Bay. Getting this 10 year plan together and knowing it’s the work of Island Bay as a majority and working with the council in making it happen.” More than 50 people attended this week’s meeting of the residents association and Vicki said they encouraged anyone who wanted to get involved and have their say, to send an email to islandbayres@gmail.com

Creche enjoys edible garden By Nikki Papatsoumas

Families at a local creche have a delicious edible garden to enjoy thanks to the efforts of a hard working parent. Kilbirnie Community Creche is nestled away behind the Kilbirnie Lyall Bay Community Centre. Senior teacher Jannie Nehemia said parent Leolie Rentson approached them with the idea of planting an edible garden for the kids to enjoy. “We never had a nice garden out there and she was quite keen to put in an edible garden.

There are even edible flowers. Leolie said she thought it would be a great way for children from the creche to learn where food came from. “My boy was a toddler at the time, I have an edible garden at home and he was always going into the garden and munching away.”

“Spending time with family, celebrating and it’s time to have fun with your family at different special occasions.”

“It means spending time with family, getting presents and having fun.”

Disabled car parks Dear Ed, I would like to make some comments on the new disabled carparks outside the Island Bay Medical Centre on The Parade. Previously they were angle parks and I was able to get out of the car and step onto the kerb immediately. Unfor-

tunately, these new carparks are situated closer to the middle of the road, and they are now parallel parking spaces. As a disabled driver, I am now in the position of having to open the car door and step out towards the middle of the road before

I can make my way to the kerb. This new arrangement has made what was a simple straightforward action into a complex and rather dangerous process - all for the sake of a visit to my local doctor. Conversations with staff at the medical

centre indicate that other patients are facing similar difficulties. How long, do you think, before a disabled driver is clipped by a car or bus coming along from behind? Malcolm Swift Island Bay

LETTERS to the editor Excited for improvements Dear Ed, After waiting 10 minutes for my young son to be able to safely cross The Parade in Island Bay at the Humber St intersection, I can’t wait for the council’s improvements to The Parade to be completed. Not only will they encourage more cycling, they will also make it safer and easier for pedestrians and mobility transport users to get around our community. I just hope that these columns

won’t be filled with letters from motorists complaining that they can’t travel at the speeds they do now. Instead I hope that they will celebrate the fact that our suburb is safer and more attractive for both families and older people within our community. M Rodgers, Island Bay

Seawall deterrent for rats Dear Ed, So pleased the seawall is being rebuilt, Not sure if it will be a deterrent for all the rats that the fishermen of Island Bay see when down there early morning checking the tide etc., that head to the old

toilet at the park, ideally a crossing where the toilets are into the park would make it a lot safer and tidy up a rat infested area. Barbara Patterson Island Bay

King Canute Dear Ed, It’s interesting that Marion Finlay and Andrew Carman of Brooklyn wrote two very negative letters about the fixing of the Island Bay seawall (Cook Strait News December 3) and both mentioned King Canute. Chatting with people I know throughout Wellington I’ve found that there is a general consensus that the fixing of the seawall was in fact long overdue and the main reason for the fail of the wall was due to a deliberate lack of maintenance by Wellington City Council.

Beach management plan on the cards for Lyall Bay By Nikki Papatsoumas

I personally don’t know anyone that wanted to close The Esplanade to motor vehicles nor anyone that thought it was a good idea to allow the dunes to merge with Shorland Park. Finlay and Carman are entitled to their opinion as other’s are entitled to theirs. In this particular case democracy prevailed and the wishes of the majority of the community were heard. Harry Fyfe Island Bay

Christmas trees Dear Ed, Re your December 10 issue, it was good to see your front-page article about real Christmas trees for sale here. I agree there's nothing so nice as a live conifer or even a branch from one, for Christmas, especially with the scent of pine or fir as well. But if it's just a matter of long term economy and appearance, an artificial tree can also look very attractive. And like its various decorations of tinsel, glass, and plastic, it can be stored away

Lyall Bay residents are encouraged to have their say when it comes to a beach management plan for the coastal community.

for use over many festive seasons as a traditional family heirloom. A real tree will usually become rubbish or firewood, as happens in one of Andersen’s fairy tales, I recall. Anyway, I’m glad there is a choice of trees over a wide price-range; so most households will be able to get an affordable tree, real or artificial, this year. Hector Westfold Miramar

Residents and business owners of Lyall Bay are encouraged to “step up and get involved” in what could potentially see the suburb’s beach better managed. Bryce Pedersen was elected as president of the Kilbirnie, Rongotai and Lyall Bay Residents Association in October. He said the residents association was in the process of working with the Wellington City Council to develop a beach management plan for the coastal community. Over the winter, the ‘surfer’s carpark’ at Lyall Bay was damaged by storms, repaired and damaged again. “The management of Lyall Bay is highly reactive. It is only looked after if things go wrong. There is no on-going day to day response for Lyall Bay. “It’s not business as usual things only happen with the council when things go wrong. We need an on-going commitment to the management of Lyall Bay.” Bryce said the Wellington City Council recently commissioned a contractor

to analyse issues at Lyall Bay Beach and provide some possible solutions. The report was presented to the association at a recent meeting. “It was really interesting because he sectioned Lyall Bay into five different zones. Each zone has its own particular issues and own solutions and remedies.” Bryce said the contractors findings had now been sent to council officers. Advice would then be given to councillors before a second round of consultation began in early February. In the meantime, he encouraged residents and businesses in Lyall Bay to “step up and be involved”. “We want people in each of the particular zones to have a view on their zones.” The Kilbirnie, Rongotai and Lyall Bay Residents Association will have its next meeting on February 3 from 7.30pm at the Cockburn Chapel on Onepu Rd. Anyone who would like to be involved in a Beach Management Plan for the area can contact Bryce Pedersen on pbrycep@gmail.com or through the association’s Facebook page.

Dental Emergency Pain is one of the reasons people go to the dentist. Common symptoms of a painful tooth can be triggered by hot or cold foods and drinks. Heavy biting or grinding may break a tooth and cause it to hurt when you chew. Sometimes, when a filling falls out, you may have a throbbing ache. Any injury to teeth or gums should not be ignored. If your teeth and gums are not treated in time, there can be a risk of getting an infection. If an infection is not treated, it can spread to other parts of the head and neck and cause serious discomforts. In rare cases it can even become life threatening. It is very important to always seek treatment for a dental injury and get injured teeth repaired and treated as soon as possible after an injury. When To Call A Dentist? Our dentist’s advice is if it hurts, it’s an emergency and should not be left too late. Prompt treatment improves the chances of saving injured or damaged teeth. If you are aware of any damage to your

teeth such as chips or fractures, these should be treated as soon as possible. If they are not treated, it can cause more problems in the future. When you lose a filling or crown, even if you don’t have any symptoms, the tooth has lost its support and it could easily become damaged. Your teeth could break off in pieces or crumble, and you would need more extensive treatment. If you see your dentist right away, there’s a better chance he or she will be able to repair the damage more easily. At Newtown Dental Surgery, we will always try to attend to any of our patient’s urgent dental problems as soon as possible or make other arrangements for our patients to be cared for. Please note: Material provided by Newtown Dental Surgery in this article is provided for educational purposes only. You must consult a dentist regarding the applicability of any opinions or recommendations with respect to your symptoms or dental condition.

A time to

Christmas can be a season of great joy. It is a time of God showing His great love for us. It can be a time of healing and renewed strength. Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of the Christ child. God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to be born. His birth brought great joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men, and angels all shared in the excitement of knowing about this great event. They knew this was no ordinary baby. The prophets had told of His coming hundreds of years before. The star stopped over Bethlehem just to mark the way for those who were looking for this special child. Ref: www1.cbn.com/devotions/real-meaning-christmas

Christmas shopping truths revealed those surveyed admitted to receiving at least one Christmas present they did not like. Of those who said they had received a present they did not want, half said they would store it away somewhere and forget about it and 39 per cent said they would re-gift it. The survey also revealed some interesting Christmas shopping habits. Of those who took part in the survey, 37 per cent said they left their Christmas shopping until December and 21 per cent said they left it until the week before Christmas.

Those surveyed said:

56 per cent said they wouldn’t mind receiving socks for Christmas 34 per cent said they found their partners most difficult to buy for, followed by distant relatives. 72 per cent of those surveyed said they had received at least one present in the past they did not like.

More than half of New Zealanders have admitted they wouldn’t mind un-wrapping a nice new pair of fresh socks on Christmas Day. A study carried out by The Warehouse on 1027 adults, revealed 56 per cent of Kiwis would be happy to see a fresh pair of socks sitting underneath the tree, along with sleepwear and undies.

SPORT

Wor ser Bay Scho ol students soaked up the sunshine earlier this week when they got the opportunity to go mountain biking through the Miramar Centennial Reserve. A round 45 ch ild ren don ne d h el m et s a nd jumped on their bikes for the activity which took place on Tuesday morning. The activity was organised by Adrian Armstrong, the former coach of the New Zealand downhill mountain biking team. Adrian’s daughter attends Worser Bay School and he said after chatting to staff he thought it would be great to give children the opportunity to give the sport a go. “It’s good to see a whole bunch of kids outside and in the local environment, on cou nci l approve d tracks and getting to try

out mountain biking.” On Monday the kids’ bikes were checked and they were also taught basic skills, he said and added it was fantastic to have the chance to teach the young children mountain biking skills. “It was great to see them all into it rather than sitting home on a PlayStation. There was a really great mix of boys and girls too which was great.” Adrian also thanked local business Burkes Cycles for their support on the day. Worser Bay School principal Jude Pentecost said the activity fit in perfectly with the school’s focus on well-being and resilience. “We saw this mountain biking experience as a great fit with our wider goals. We want all children to have rich and varied opportunities. “Our curriculum is not narrow.”

Cricket this week

This week is the last round of cricket this year, and teams from the Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club are ready to end the year on a bright note. The premier men’s side will travel to Fraser Park on Saturday to play the Taita Cricket Club at 11am. The premier reserve side is at home on Kilbirnie Park playing against Taita also. The game begins at 11am.

Colgate Games

Young athletes from Wellington and Wairarapa are gearing up for next month’s 38th annual Colgate Games. The 2016 Colgate Games, New Zealand’s National Junior Athletics Championship for children aged seven to 14, has received more than 2000 entrants from up and down the country with 379 from the Wellington-Wairarapa region. Colgate New Zealand general manager John Garside said he was thrilled to see such a high level of participation. “The Colgate Games has been bringing sporting children and their proud parents together for many years.” He said the games would “give thousands of aspiring young athletes the opportunity to showcase their talents”.

Night of Miles

A group of around 45 children from Worser Bay School had the opportunity to mountain bike through Miramar Centennial Reserve on Tuesday.

Many of Wellington’s fastest athletes will be starting the summer season at Newtown Park on Saturday at the annual Lifestyle Sports Night of Miles. The programme consists of a mix of children’s, senior and junior races, fun social events and serious ‘elite’ races. The highlights are the mile races which are only rarely raced these days and Santa Claus is also set to make a special appearance on the track. Spectators are welcome and entry is $5. All money raised at the meet will go to support Wellington’s Neonatal Trust, which supports families with premature babies. The programme runs from 5pm to 8pm.
