Wainuiomata was extremely busy in 2015, from achievements on the sporting field to the community coming together to help families in need. Arakura School celebrated turning 50, the 100th anniversary of Anzac Day was celebrated and money was raised for two children who needed life changing medical help. After many years of discussion, Wainuiomata finally got a bridge on top of the Wainuiomata Hill. We look back at some of the top stories in what was one of the busiest years Wainuiomata has experienced.

Speed camera drama Wainuiomata Hill’s speed camera made a return to the top of the hill late last month, but it wasn’t long before it was damaged. The original camera situated on the site at the top of the hill was damaged beyond repair mid-way through last year and had only just been replaced. This time it was only a matter of a few days before it was damaged again, after someone shot the camera, leaving very visible bullet holes. Many Wainuiomata residents are against the camera, with most saying it is a money making scheme, although police deny this saying it is situated to increase safety.

Art splash

Wainuiomata could be proud of. Boxer Raymond Seumanu won the Australian Golden Gloves Championship. There were two more sporting team successes, the high school First XI and the Wainuiomata Hockey Club winning their grades. The call to name Wainuiomata’s new bridge was made to the community. Local personality Tony Watling celebrated his 90th birthday and a surprise party was thrown for him at the Wainuiomata Community Centre.

From now until April 30, Hutt City Council is trialling free parking in the central business district. The trial will be monitored to see if it makes a positive impact on retail spending and activity. The scheme means the first hour of parking will be free for pay and display parks with a two hour time limit, any time more than this will cost as per normal. There will be full consultation to see if the change becomes permanent.

Winner of Shop to Win By Aaron Meredith

This year’s winner of Shop to Win was Sheila Craig. The winner was drawn by Community Constable Aroha Morehu and mall manager Collete Goodfellow. Sheila won the prize after purchasing items at the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre between November 30 and December 21 last year. For the second year in a row, Join the Dots was the store which the winning entry came from. Included in the prize pack were $450 worth of outdoor furniture from The Warehouse, $100 cut and blow dry form Hedz for Hair, sunglasses worth $199 from Visque optometrists, $100 worth of fruit mince pies and Christmas cakes from Wainuiomata Cake Kitchen, 10 Big Mac Vouchers from McDonald’s, $50 vouchers from both Coin Save and The 123 Mart, a $30 voucher from Beauty Solutions and a $30 Sushi Party Pack from Umi Sushi.

Favourite photo for the year

Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy, and needs to fly over to St Louis in America for surgery which has been shown to significantly improve the lives of those who complete it. This originally was to cost $100,000 but the family was given some bad news in a price increase recently. “It means we have to raise at least another $15,000 in order to pay, the exchange rate is part of the reason for the price increase,” says Mila’s mum Melanie. Once again Wainuiomata locals are getting in behind the cause, with the Wainuiomata Motorcycle Club organising a ride to raise as much money as they can. The club organised a ride last year for Ataahua Journey, when her family was raising money for a new portable oxygen tank.

“We also have some friends who own classic cars, so they have offered to set up a car show for us.” These final fundraisers are set for February this year, something that makes the family happy. “It has been a rollercoaster of a year, it has been very tiring with all the fundraisers, it will all be worth it though. “Wainuiomata has been awesome, it is full of a lot of good people with a lot of compassion, it is very heartwarming.” Mila has been completing four sessions of physio every week, the family is hoping they can extend to five in the near future. “It has been great for Mila, she gets to play with all sorts of things and interact with other children,” says Melanie.

My favourite photo of the year is not the best photo I took, not by a long way, but it was one of the most fun ones. This one is from when the Wainuiomata High School head students got to meet the Prime Minister and while head girl Jade Humphrey was having a chat with him, the other head students and I who were waiting around decided to have a bit of fun, the only option we could see was a photo bomb. I still wonder if Mr Key had any idea what was going on in the background while we were doing this. I know the staff at the high school had a bit of a laugh when we showed them this photo, as did we here in the office.

Question: What is your new years resolution.

Annette Smith: Wainuiomata

Nicky Cooper: Wainuiomata

Leith Gunn Wainuiomata

Tyler Skipper-King: Wainuiomata

Jerome Misi: Wainuiomata

I want to try and travel this year.

To grow my business. Leith Gunn: Be the best I can be and create more family time.

I want to develop myself more, achieve more personal growth.

I want to lose weight, take care of my health and wellbeing.

I want to do well in school and sport.

Ann Watkins, Wainuiomata I want to develop myself more, achieve more personal growth.

LETTERS to the editor Good design increases safety I write in response to Lance Stewart’s letter of last week. The area at the Pukeatua Bridge at the summit of Wainuiomata Hill was never intended or designed to be car parks. The summit of the Wainuiomata Hill has an 80km speed limit and low visibility and so it was in the interests of the safety of drivers, pedestrians and cyclists to reduce the vehicular movements at this point.

There was not enough space to install the new bridge and provide a car park on that side which motorists could enter and exit safely – the exit from that layby has poor visibility with the crest blocking the view of oncoming traffic. Drivers can safely turn at the roundabout at the base of the hill and return to a car park on the lookout side of the road and use the bridge to cross the road.

Council built car parks at the end of Waiu Street for off-road mountain bikers and other track users, to relieve parking pressure at the summit. This was all done in consultation with the community. In the near future, there will be a four metre-wide shared cycle and pedestrian pathway over this hill better connecting Wainuiomata with the Hutt Valley and the

hills around us. This will further boost the big numbers of people I have seen travelling under their own steam to reach the summit and safely cross over the Pukeatua Bridge. The bridge and walkway will be a huge asset to the community and is something the community has wanted for a very long time. Ray Wallace Mayor- Lower Hutt

THE NEXT STEP FOR PLANET EARTH? Are you over wars, terrorism and ongoing conflicts? If the rulers of this planet didn’t want them we wouldn’t have them. Selective informing, (telling us what to think) has served them well for thousands of years. It is called reigning over. Are we adult enough to do the reining in, to take control of, or responsibility for our planet? The information age has arrived. Insiders, (first person experiencers), women and men are gutsy enough to speak out. All we have to do is start listening to them and informing ourselves. Sitting in church being held to an Earth and physical only reality isn’t adult enough to be in charge of the destiny of a planet. We have to understand how the universe works to be aware of possible risks, threats or opportunities. The church version of reality does hint at the different levels of reality occupying the same space, (with the spirit word), but cuts them off with the one word cover story – heaven.

HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT Dianne and Allan Surridge are leaving the Wainuiomata Cake Kitchen after 37 years of service.

Longtime owner and baker at the Wainuiomata Cake Kitchen, Allan Surridge is hanging up his apron for the final time. After 37 years, Allan and his wife Diane have made the decision to retire. “I have been here for so long, it is time to move on,” says Allan. What the couple will miss the most is the contact with the community. “All of our regular cus-

tomers have been so good to us throughout the entire time we have been here. “We would like to thank them for all the support they gave us throughout the year.” In return for the support the community has shown them, Allan and Diane have supported members of the community by supplying them jobs. “We have hired a lot of girls from the high school to be our front of shop, they have all been great.”

The bakery is not set to close down, as the pair have found someone who is keen to take over the shop. The Wainuiomata Cake Kitchen has been in the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre since it was first opened over forty years ago. Allan and Diane plan to take a well-deserved break for a while and attempt to get all the odd jobs at home done which have been left alone for a few years.

New Years Celebration Interpreting – a vital role

Staying safe is more than just staying afloat. You will have heard safety messages about the importance of carrying and wearing lifejackets, they only work if they are being worn. Most accidents occur suddenly with no warning – there may be no time to grab a lifejacket, and it’s extremely difficult to put one on in the water. While lifejackets in small boats are important they are not only step in keeping safe on the water this summer: check the weather forecast and keep an eye out for changes while you Always are on the water. Tell someone where you are going and when you are coming back. Carry at least one waterproof means of communication. Make sure your boat and all its equipment are in good condition. the rules of the road and navigation bylaws like the 500 ton rule Understand and 5 knot speed restrictions. Keep a good lookout for swimmers and dive flags and keep well clear of both. alcohol, it can impair your decision making as well as increase your risk Avoid of hypothermia.

Imagine arriving in a country with your new husband or wife, unable to speak the local language. How would you do the shopping? How would you find out when the buses run and how to get a ticket? When Puri (pictured) first came to New Zealand from Spain more than 20 years ago, she was in just this position. Her inability in English was doubly frustrating because her excellent communication skills in Spanish had resulted in good jobs there. Coping with everyday situations might be reasonably straightforward, but what happens when you need to go to the doctor or the hospital for either yourself or your child? Or the Police want to interview you because you’ve observed a car accident? It’s on these occasions that an interpreter

is vital. Nowadays, as a very fluent speaker of both English and Spanish and a fully-trained interpreter, Puri feels satisfied in helping other people bridge the language gap that she struggled with so much. But it’s not just being helpful that makes this a great job for Puri. Interpreting assignments take place anywhere and everywhere, so she has to draw on all the various skills and experiences she has gained over the years. As she puts it “I have to stretch my mind, my memory and all my abilities – it is great brain exercise.” If you’re a bilingual speaker and you’d like to find out more about interpreting check out the advertisement below or go directly to our website: www.interpret.org.nz .

What to look forward to in 2016

Sporting year highlights 2015 was one of the most successful years Wainuiomata has had in sporting arenas. From the rugby field to the boxing ring to the softball diamond, Wainuiomata was represented at a high level on regional, national and international levels. Wainuiomata High School Rugby Success The Wainuiomata High School First XV dominated their grade throughout the season, the side marched through the Murray Jensen Cup unbeaten, defeating Newlands College in the final. The side had three players selected for Wellington Schools Representative sides. The Girls First XV made the Premier One final, and also had players selected for Regional sides. Joel Evans off to World Championships Joel Evans made the trip to Canada with the New Zealand Black Sox for the Softball World Championships in June. He was part of the squad which finished second, losing in a closely fought final to the host nation. Joel was one of three players from the Hutt Valley to be selected in the squad, and performed well at the tournament. Boxing domination The Wainuiomata Boxing Club has had an amazing year, the clubs boxers winning titles and championships all around the country. Raymond Seumanu made the step to the international stage, winning the Australian

Golden Gloves title, along with his third New Zealand title. This year is looking to be an even better year than last, with trainers Craig Bennett, Rob Cameron and Rico Seumanu planning big things for the gym. Sieni makes Kiwi Ferns Wainiuomata High School Student Sieni Samau was selected for the New Zealand Kiwi Ferns Rugby League side. She did this after making the Wellington Representative squad in both Rugby Union and Rugby League. She was also named as Wainuiomata High School’s sportswoman of the year, along with receiving many other awards. Hockey Club returns with success The Wainuiomata Senior Hockey club returned after a 20 year hiatus, and returned with a bang. The side only lost one game all year, was promoted halfway through the season, then won the grade they were promoted to, earning them promotion for next season. This was done with a mixture of experienced players and talented high school students, in what proved to be an unstoppable combination.

Softball returns for the year Last weekend the Wainuiomata softball presidents destroyed the Hutt Valley Dodgers 17-2 in their final game of the first round. The result saw the side finish on top of the division in the first round, they now move onto the second round where they are scheduled to play the Hutt Valley Dodgers

again, this time at JMM at 1.15pm. It was not a very successful week for the womens teams, both going down in close matches. This week the two sides are also at JMM, The Rare Breeds play Hutt Valley Marist at 1.15pm, while Wainuiomata play the Hutt Valley Dodgers Divas at 3.15pm.

Sieni Samau

Sporting wise 2016 is all about one event, the Olympics in Rio. This takes place between August 5 and 21. If London 2012 is anything to go buy, the event will attract over 10,000 athletes and a television audience in the billions. The Olympics are the biggest sporting event every four years, nothing captivates the entire planet like the Olympic Games. The next biggest event is probably Euro 2016, Europe’s football championship involving 24 of the best teams in Europe. This, in some ways is more competitive than the football world cup. All the European nations are very good, there is hardly ever a mismatch. Euro takes place from June 10 to July 10 and is always full of action. Throughout June is the Copa America, South America’s football championship, which is as competitive as Euro. The Paralympics take place in September, and are nearly as popular as Euro. This is taking place in Rio and New Zealand generally does well in the Paralympics Games. The World T/20 takes place in India from March 11 to April 3, The World Rowing Championships are on just after the Olympics, being held in Rotterdam. For golfing fans, this year is when the Ryder Cup is held, this year Europe will face the United States in Minnesota over the first weekend in October. Along with these tournaments, we have the usual annual events. The Tour de France, the golf and tennis majors, the Melbourne Cup, the superbowl, the NBA finals, the NHL finals and the Baseball World Series Super Rugby brings in another three teams, the Juguares from Argentina, the Sun Wolves from Japan and the Kings from South Africa. The All Blacks will be facing Wales in three tests in June, play the Rugby Championship in the later part of winter before touring the northern hemisphere in November. The Black Caps continue their series against Sri Lanka before Pakistan and Australia turn up to wind up this summer. Throughout the year the side tours Zimbabwe, South Africa and India before returning home to host Pakistan and Bangladesh before the end of the year. 2016 is a rather large sporting year, for those who love sport it could be one of the biggest ever. What sporting event are you most looking forward to this year?
