Lotto winner a local Last Wednesday’s Lotto draw changed a Wainuiomata family’s life after the won $1 million. The First Division winning ticket was bought at Norfolk Street Foodmarket. The winning lotto draw was the talk of the town last week, with many people curious about who won the draw. One resident said he was

happy someone in Wainuiomata had won it, and hoped it went to a family who really needed it. “I guess we will only find out when we see someone driving round in a brand new car.” The prize was the first time the Norfolk Street Foodmarket had sold a winning First Division ticket.

Future clothes designers from Wainuiomata got the chance to learn about the craft last week at the Wainuiomata Library. In what was part of Hutt City Libraries holiday programmes, the group of teens were taught about different aspects of fashion and what different designs were meant to achieve.

Librarian Alexia Herrera ran the programme and said the children all loved the chance to design clothes. The programme was also part of the Character Couture Competition which the library is running throughout the month. All entries for this competition are on display at the library.

New bakery owner steps up Continued from page 2 Andrew has also travelled around working in different bakeries, even in Australia before returning to the bakery in 2000, around the same time The Warehouse opened next door. “I always wanted to own my own bakery, when Alan said he was leaving, I didn’t want to see the bakery close,” he says. The feedback Andrew has got from the community has been great, he says it has all been positive. “I set up a Facebook page, and it already has around 600 likes and lots of good comments. “Everyone loves this place.” Andrew wants to make sure all

the items everyone knows and loves will remain, but he also plans to add a few more items to the selection. “I’m really excited for the opportunity, thanks to Alan for the way he handed over the bakery. “It made it easier than it could have been, I am really looking forward to the challenge.” Andrew was born and bred in Wainuiomata, he is currently part of the Wainuiomata Bush Fire Force. He has one son and says he took on the bakery for him, to make sure his future was looked after. “Family is always the most important thing, they have helped me alot.”

Funding needed for lacklustre playground Parkway Park play area has been left in disarray after money set aside for playground maintenance was used over the hill on the Avalon Park upgrade. The Children’s play area at the park was set for a revamp in 2015, however the work has been delayed for another year after the

$200,000 Council budget for playground equipment replacement and maintenance was used to help with extra costs in the Hutt City Councils Avalon Park project. Hutt City Councillor Campbell Barry isn’t happy about the delay and questions Council

using maintenance budgets to help cover extra costs in capital projects. “The current state of the Children’s play area is a disgrace and is in urgent need of attention. We have a maintenance and replacement budget for a reason” says Cr Barry. Much of the play equipment

Kaleb McCabe plays on what is left of the Parkway Park play area.

Schools start up again Next Monday sees the first day of school for all students in the valley. Term one ends on Friday April 15. Term two dates are from Monday May 2 until Friday July 8, term three runs from July 25 to September 23. The school year will end no later than Tuesday December 20.

was urgently removed over a year ago after it was found to be riddled with rust and nails which served as a serious hazard. The equipment has not been replaced, and what remains appears to be in very poor condition. “To pull down the children’s play equipment and plan to leave it vacant for two years isn’t good enough”. Cr Barry says he will be moving a motion at the next Council meeting to seek additional funding for the playground budget so work can start on Parkway as soon as possible. Community Board Deputy Chair Josh Briggs agrees that work on the play area should be a priority. “Playgrounds are an integral part of our community and the Hutt City Council itself has the maintenance of playgrounds listed as a priority in its strategic documents”. Mr Briggs would like to see the Community Board given more delegations that would help in the oversight of community assets like Parkway Park. “It would help ensure our assets are in the best possible condition that they can be”. Cr Barry agrees that this should be a role given to Community Boards and Community Committees across the City.

Hutt City Council has joined others in the region in welcoming the announcement of the new Wellington-Canberra-Singapore service by Singapore Airlines. Acting Lower Hutt Mayor David Bassett says businesses will be the ones who benefit the most. “We have a lot of business in Lower Hutt succeeding on the global stage, so the better connected we are internationally the better. “This is good news for the region, for residents looking to travel recreationally and for developing stronger business and political ties with Australia and Asia. This announcement greatly improves the ease

of travel to and from Asia, as travellers will be able to stay on the same plane all the way from Wellington to Singapore. “We look forward to hosting many more visitors here, with our modern Events Centre and four-star hotel just a 30 minute drive from the airport, opening in early 2017, we are really excited about what we can offer. “It’s great to see confidence in this region from such a well-reputed airline.” Singapore Airlines are scheduled to commence flying four times per week from Wellington to Canberra and then onward to Singapore in late September 2016.

Church celebrates 150th Jubilee Wainuiomata’s oldest church is turning 150 years old on Waitangi weekend and plans are made to celebrate this achievement. Coast Road Church, sometimes known as the Wainuiomata Pioneer Church, is the third oldest church in the Wellington Region and was the first Methodist Church, although now is not affiliated with any religion. Wainuiomata Pioneer Church Preservation Society Member Joyce Lockyer says she is expecting many people to turn up to the celebrations on Waitangi Day. “We have musical items, Mayor Ray Wallace, Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard and National List MP Chris Bishop will be speaking. “We also have an official cake for the celebrations which will be cut by our oldest member.” Many of Wainuiomata’s early settlers are buried around the church site and Joyce says ancestors of these people are attending the

celebrations. A new book will also be launched on Waitangi Day, telling the stories of many of the early pioneers of Wainuiomata. “Many people attending have already preordered the book, they all are wanting to hear stories about the people of Wainuiomata,” says Joyce. There will also be a chance to buy some Memorabilia. On Sunday a service will be held and the Wainuiomata Vintage Car Club will perform a drive past. The current site of the church was purchased by Richard Prouse in 1853, the buiding was built with wood which was supplied by the Prouse Mill. The Church was officially opened on February 6 1866. Recently renovated, the church is much loved in the community, with many taking ownership of it. “Many people round the valley call it our church, a lot of people love this building,” says Joyce.

The Coast Road Church is about to celebrate its 150th Jubilee.

Ron Chin and Evan Choi have opened their pharmacy on Sundays in order to help out Wainuiomata residents.

Pharmacy helping community seven days a week By Aaron Meredith

For the first time ever, Wainuiomata has the chance for health care seven days a week after Ron Chin and Evan Choi decided to open Wainuiomata Pharmacy on Sundays. Ron Chin says he recalls a conversation many years ago with MP Trevor Mallard who wanted to see if any of the three pharmacies in Wainuiomata at the time

could open on Sunday’s. “At the time none of us could as we were all one man bands,” he says. “Now that Evan and I have merged we are able to do this.” The two owners see this as a chance for members of the public to save money and time, as they do not have to go over the hill. “The Hutt Valley District Health Board always encourages people to see their phar-

macist or doctor before going to accident and emergency. “I don’t think people quite realise we can assess patients and give them advice on what they need to do, if they need to go to emergency from there or if we can help here.” Both Ron and Evan are encouraging Wainuiomata residents to use the service. “It is the only seven day a week health service in Wainuiomata,” says Evan.

Q: What about your community are you most proud of?

Vera Pazan, Maungaraki The amazing support network with all my neighbours.

Alexia Herrera, Wainuiomata

Bruce Wayne, Wainuiomata

Charlie Son, Wainuiomata

Ali Black, Upper Hutt

The freshness and how welcoming the community is towards people.

The strong sense of community spirit.

The people are friendly, warm hearted and very welcoming.

All the young people in Wainuiomata.

Sundar Arunagiri, Moera I find it is a safe place to go out, Wainuiomata is safe as well, there is no big difference between the two places.

LETTERS to the editor Proving a point Dear Ed, After I wrote about there being a no parking facility on the hill, what do I see? I don’t travel over the hill much (but at least once a week), and within a three week span after writing my article, I see a car parked up the “service vehicle access only” road with a flat tire with an AA vehicle parked in front of it on the main hill road, A week later a grey van was stationary

A safety hazard on top of the hill with hazard lights flashing, blocking one of the lanes. This is not safe and it is also not their fault. I wonder how many other unsafe stoppages have occurred since the parking area has been replaced with a pile of dirt. It’s a no brainer, return the car park. Don’t be stubborn politician’s, you're not always right. Just let it go, do the right thing. Lance Thompson Snr.

Dear Ed, I've just finished reading the letter posted in this week’s Wainuiomata News by Irene Galuszka. I agree with her on the issue of the garden at the top of the hill instead of parking. Really crazy idea putting a garden there instead of parking, so that once again there is only access to the bridge on one side. As for having somewhere to pull off the road in case of break down it is absolutely needed. Last year before the bridge garden

was put in I had the need to pull in there. My car was over heating because my radiator burst, I don't know what I would have done if I didn't have somewhere to pull in safely. So yes I’m all for getting rid of the garden. It was a stupid idea. I from what I have heard a lot of people agree. I would have thought it was logical to keep parking on both sides of the hill.

Family Works has parenting programmes scheduled for early 2016 which cater for different parenting needs.

“Our parenting groups are for people who want to build on their skills as parents. It’s about having even more knowledge, ideas and approaches to meet the challenges that being a parent or carer can bring to us all.” Family Works is also a provider of the Ministry of Justice Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) service, an out of court mediation service for parents who are separating and wish to agree on a parenting plan.

Moa a priority for Trevor Mallard

Members of the Wainuiomata Rugby League Club help people over Pukeatua Bridge last Monday.

Wheels over Pukeatua By Aaron Meredith

Those who have not been able to cross Pukeatua Bridge got the chance to on Monday thanks to Hutt City Council, the Wainuiomata Rugby League Club and Woburn

Home. Councillor Margaret Willard helped organise the event for elderly people who do not have the ability to walk up to the bridge. To help out with this, members of the Wainuiomata Rug-

by League Club helped wheel the large group of people over the bridge, showing off the amazing views which can be seen from the top. Wheelchairs were borrowed from Woburn Home. Trevor Mallard has been assisting in laying traps to contain possum numbers.

Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard has once again thrown his support behind Moa by volunteering his time for the Moa Conservation Trust. Last Thursday, Mallard joined a team of volunteers to install state of the art possum traps along the McKerrow track. The A12 possum trap units were designed by Goodnature, a Wellington based company who have put their skills in industrial design to good use in the conservation space. The A12 units are clean, humane and leave no toxins in the environment so do not pose a risk to dogs or children walking the track. As Labour’s Animal Welfare spokesperson, Mallard was only too happy to get hands-on. “The Moa Conservation Trust has been doing fantastic work. Since setting up in June 2014, they have installed two trap lines, resulting in more than 300 possum kills.” says Mallard. “The work they are doing is of benefit to all in the region, helping to revitalise local bird life and preserve it for future generations.” The Moa Conservation Trust is always on the look out for additional volunteers to help install these traps.  If you would like to get involved, please check out their website for more information.

Free emergency training course Wellington Emergency Management (WREMO) is holding four free training courses aiming to help Lower Hutt people be better prepared for an emergency. This is happening every Thursday throughout February (4, 11, 18, 25) at the Pavilion on Laings Road. This is open to anyone in the community who wants to know where they can help themselves and their neighbours.  For more information visit civil_defence_training

Tyson Fury is creating interest in boxing again Rob Dalgety bowls for the Wainuiomata first team over the weekend.

First team goes down to Collegians By Aaron Meredith

The Wainuiomata Cricket First Team went down heavily to Wellington Collegians over the weekend at Bryan Heath Park. The visitors batted first and after a strong opening partnership went on to score 261/9 off their 50 overs.

This total proved far too much for Wainuiomata to chase, eventually being bowled out for 203 in the 44th over. The second team had a bye over the weekend. Next week the first team begins a two day match against Eastern Suburbs.

The game starts at 12pm at Bryan Heath park next Saturday, then concludes on Sunday February 7. The second team will be playing the Taita Fireblades, the game is at Bryan Heath Park beginning at 1pm. In the T/20 grade, Rosco plays the Taita Titans at Fraser Park beginning at 2pm, Brownie has the bye.

Busy week for Softballers By Aaron Meredith

This week sees another busy week of softball action for local teams. The Wainuiomata Presidents are at home playing against Naenae Railways. The game at Wise Park will begin at 3.15pm, and the team will want to have a strong performance this week. In the Major B Womens grade,

both teams are scheduled to be playing at Wise Park. The Rare Breeds will be playing Totara Park Blue at 1.15pm in the curtain raiser to the Presidents game. Wainuiomata will be playing Hutt Valley Marist on the second field, beginning at 3.15pm. On the points table, The Rare Breeds are sitting in second place with 16 points, three behind table

leaders Hutt Valley Marist. Wainuiomata are sitting in fifth with nine points but have played three games less than the rest of the division. The Wainuiomata Capital Three side will travel to Paraparaumu to play Kapiti Coast at Te Atiawa Park. The side has yet to have a win this year, but will be keen to turn their bad form around.

To many he is crazy or nuts, but there is no doubt Tyson Fury is bringing attention to a sport which was becoming rather predictable in the last decade. When Fury defeated Wladimir Klitschko for the IBO, WBA, IBF and WBO World Heavyweight Championships, he ended a 11 year unbeaten run for the former champion, who while being a great champion, will not be remembered as one of the great showmen of a sport that is known for big personalities. Think Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and Floyd Mayweather, all showmen whose confidence is sometimes mixed up with arrogance, but love them or hate them, everyone watched them. Fury has this personality which makes you take notice when he says or does something, whether he is boxing or not. His latest outing in the public eye came right after Deontay Wilder, the WBC World Heavyweight Champion, knocked out his latest opponent. Fury stormed the ring and made it known he wanted a unification bout with Wilder for all the titles. His first words to Wilder were “There’s only one Tyson Fury, what do you think about that?” Wilder was as bemused as the entire crowd, when I first heard I was confused, to me it didn’t make sense, but that is how Fury’s mind works I guess. Taking away from the fact he stormed the ring an interrupted another boxers moment and him not making sense at all with what he says, he did make more people aware there was a world title fight on at the time. Most people in this country barely know when Joseph Parker’s next bout is, let alone a bout which happened on the other side of the world. If there is a unification bout in the future, it would be massive, many people would watch it, but it may just be to see Fury get knocked out, not that it is guaranteed, look a Floyd Mayweather, everyone watched him to see him get beat, and it never happened.

The beach comes to Avalon Park Temporary beach volleyball courts are being installed at Avalon Park for the next six weeks. Hutt City Council has attracted a tournament of international and New Zealand beach volleyball teams to play at the courts from this weekend, as part of the Les Mills Beach Volleyball Pro Tour. Acting Mayor David Basset says it’s great for the city. “We are finding new and creative uses for our facilities that attract national events and provide new opportunities for our residents. “This tournament will help inspire the next generation of Kiwi volleyball players and they can also use the courts after the tour has moved on.” Tour Director at Volleyball New Zealand Tim Cleaver says the group is really excited to bring beach volleyball to Lower Hutt. “The Pro Tour will be an awe-

some spectacle for the public to come down and watch for free, and then hopefully we'll see the stars of tomorrow getting out and using the court for the rest of summer. “We know there are plenty of volleyball players around the region who will be excited to come see world-class teams compete.” After the tournament is over the courts will remain in place for six weeks for fun family activities and use by local leagues. Les Mills is the tournament sponsor and Dews Construction sponsored the installation of the court in Lower Hutt.  General admission to the tournament is free to spectators with no booking required.
