Mother-of-two Sophie Howard had no idea when she started her ‘Higher Tea’ company out of her living room four-months-ago, she would be selected to showcase her boutique tea at a pre-Oscar gifting suite later this month. Sophie is one of just 40 people who have been selected to present their products to 200 celebrities at the star studded event, which will take place prior to the 88th Academy Awards ceremony. Over the course of the five hour event, each celebrity will visit each of the stands and sample products on offer with an assistant, she said. Continued on page 2

The New Zealand Blood Service is appealing for the community to head along and donate blood at a local drive next week. Next Thursday, a blood drive will be held at the ASB Centre in Kilbirnie and the New Zealand Blood Service are hoping for at least 60 donors to attend on the day. Nicola Binns from the New Zealand Blood Service said this was the first time there had been a blood drive in Kilbirnie for more than 10 years. She said this was because there had not

But we still really need support from all local businesses in Miramar and surrounding suburbs.”

Island Bay set to celebrate festival By Nikki Papatsoumas

The 32nd annual Island Bay Festival will kick off this Saturday. Joe Bleakley, from the Island Bay Enhancement Trust, which manages the festival, said this year’s festival which runs for eight days would wow crowds from the seaside suburb and all across the capital. Festivities begin on Saturday, with the Festival Parade, which will make its way up The Parade from 2.30pm.

“This is really a celebration of all things Island Bay. Ideally everyone from Island Bay should be represented,” Joe said. Once the parade reaches Shorland Park, this year’s Variety Show will kick off at 3pm. “This is our opportunity to invite Wellington to come and enjoy this little jewel in the town.” Earlier that morning there will also be ‘Yard Sales on the Parade’, which will give residents and businesses along

School pool a summer success By Nikki Papatsoumas

said the pool had always been easily maintained until they ran in to “major problems” about six-years-ago. “We discovered a crack in the bottom of the pool and the plumbing for an upgrade of the toilets in the changing room came with a bill of $20,000.” Mike said after being denied money from Wellington City Council’s now defunct School Pool Partnership Fund, the Board of Trustees had to decide whether it was worthwhile investing money on the pool.

Students at Kilbirnie School are lucky enough to have access to their very own school pool during the warmer summer months after receiving funds from the Wellington City Council. The Kilbirnie School pool was built in 1945 and ever since has been well-utilised by the school and its neighbouring community. School principal Mike McGimpsey

Gun Salute The Royal New Zealand Navy and the New Zealand Army each fired a 21-gun salute last Saturday at midday. HMNZS Canterbury fired a gun salute observing the 176th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in Waitangi.

“We as a board were going out to the community explaining the situation… and that an option was closing the pool.” He said after consulting with the community, a team of parents worked together to raise much needed money, to ensure the pool stayed open. Money raised meant they were able to put a liner in the pool and purchase a heat pump which now keeps the water at a bearable 26C. Last year, the school also learned they would be allocated a share of $500,000 from the Wellington City Council, which was set aside as part of the council’s long term plan. He said this has helped cement the future of the school’s pool for years to come, and meant school students were able to learn water safety skills from a young age. Trained instructors from Aquazone swim school teach the junior students each week, while senior students visit Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre, Mike said. Mike said the pool was now maintained by the school’s caregiver and a dedicated Kilbirnie School Pool Committee of parents who managed the pool on a rostered basis.  Do you think more Wellington schools should have their own school pools?

secured. “This is because we thought we may have to move it back. But it has now been replaced with a much firmer foundation. “It is on a concrete foundation and has a steel pin going up into the statue.” She said the statue had also been cracked and while the council had done its best to repair the crack, it was still visible on the Moai. Moai are the traditional sculptures of the Easter Islands. Lyall Bay’s very own Moai statue was a gift from Chile to represent the friendship between Chile and New Zealand.

An iconic sculpture has been re-installed in Lyall Bay, after it toppled last year. Last December, the 3.2 tonne Moai sculpture, in Dorrie Leslie Park on Lyall Bay’s coast, came down. At the time many locals expressed their concern that the statue tumbled due to vandalism. Wellington City Councillor Sarah Free said the council remained unsure as to whether the statue had been vandalised, or knocked down by accident. “We wouldn’t like to think people were [pulling it down] on purpose. I’m hopeful it was just something unintended.” She said because the coast line where the Moai sculpture stands was “badly eroding” the statue had not been firmly

Drainage laterals Tomorrow, Wellington City Council’s Environment Committee will consider a proposal that the council accept ownership of, and responsibility for, the repair and renewal of private sewerage laterals where they cross roads and road verges. The committee will be asked to agree to seek council approval to take over ownership and responsibility for the portion

of wastewater service pipes (laterals) in road reserve. Mayor of Wellington Celia Wade-Brown said the proposal responded to issues raised in the past year where some property owners who have complained of “significant and, in cases, unaffordable costs” faced when they have to repair laterals under roads and, in some cases, incur traffic management fees.

Kilmarnock Heights Home residents and volunteers donate blankets and baked goods to the Wellington SPCA.

Berhampore elders help homeless animals Residents of Kilmarnock Heights Home in Berhampore are helping to keep SPCA animals snuggly and warm at night, by donating 30 knitted blankets. Last week residents from the Enliven home took a trip to the SPCA in Newtown to gift the blankets, along with a basket of homemade biscuits to help with the SPCA’s open day on Waitangi Day. Kilmarnock Heights Home recreation team leader Annelize Steyn says the connection with the SPCA is now a long standing one. “It’s tradition now. When the SPCA has an open day residents knit blankets and donate them to the animals there,” Annelize explains. “We have a knitting group which was started by a resident and they enjoy having projects, like knitting blankets for the puppies. The SPCA appreciates the donations and the residents feel good about giving back to their community.” One of the SPCA caregivers accepted

the blankets in the car park because some of the residents have mobility issues. She also brought a puppy out with her, which the Kilmarnock Heights Home elders took turns to hold. Annelize says the home has established a great relationship with the SPCA over the years, and SPCA volunteers visit Kilmarnock Heights Home about three times a week accompanied by a few furry friends. “They bring different animals each time and the residents absolutely love it. Having contact with animals and people on a regular basis is very important.” Kilmarnock Heights Home is operated by Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, and provides rest home and respite care as well as a popular day guest programme.

Singing star’s talent nurtured By Nikki Papatsoumas

A local singing star has been awarded a special scholarship to help her work on her craft. Twelve-year-old Rachel Katoa has been taking keyboard lessons with Sonia’s Musikgarten for the last four years. Founder of Sonia’s Musikgarten, Sonia Markholm, said she heard Rachel sing for the first time last year at a funding concert and was immediately “blown away”. “Her singing voice blew me away. It was obvious to me that she’s a natural born singer and that her gift needed to be nurtured. “This was the first time I have heard her do a solo, it was beautiful. She was singing like an angel.” Sonia said as it was not financially viable for the South Wellington Intermediate School student’s family to send her to singing lessons, she decided to help out best she could. “My father had just passed away, so

I decided to use some of the money he’s given me to set up an annual scholarship,” Sonia said. At the Musikgarten Keyboard Presentation late last year, Rachel was named as the first recipient of the Graham Markholm Music Scholarship, worth $2000. Money from the scholarship will go towards singing lessons, which Rachel began this week. “When I heard her singing I thought this has to be nurtured you can’t ignore a gift like that,” Sonia said. “She’s got something special – she’s got the X Factor.” Rachel, who is head girl at her school this year, said she was “excited” to take up singing lessons as she had never done them before. Rachel said she now hopes to continue singing in the future. “I would like to audition for X Factor,” she said.  For more information on Sonia’s Musikgarten, head to

Organiser Damien Hochberg said the menus have been designed with street food in mind, allowing attendees to sample a range of different foods. “We’ve avoided a sitdown

Wines from the Wellington region as well as Marlborough will be on offer including Gladstone, Ohau and Tiki. The fine wines will be complemented with Tuatara, Funk Estate and Good George breweries. The event, on at Waitangi

Park on February 19 and 20, is held over three sessions: Friday night, Saturday afternoon, and Saturday night. Hochberg said the early-bird tickets, which have been on sale since November, went quickly with some sessions already close to selling out. “Saturday afternoon has proven particularly popular - people love having an afternoon session with mates in the sun. “But the two evening events are also tracking well and will have a real party atmosphere.”

Zephyrometer moving freely The Evans Bay Zephyrometer sculpture, which was blowing low in very high winds last month, has been repaired and is moving freely again. Wellington City Council’s public arts project officer, Victoria Bennett, said additional weights were added to the counter balance of the Zephyrometer’s needle. As well as this its stoppers had been improved, she said. “The needle’s stoppers had to be repaired because of the extra impact caused by the balance not

being correct. “We also added an extra 300kgs counter-balance – made from zinc coated steel triangle plates. “These adjustments will now stop it bending low over the road in high winds.” Artist Phil Price made the Zephyrometer, which was installed in 2003 as part of the Wellington Meridian Energy Wind Sculpture Walk. This is the second time in recent months that the Zephyrometer has had to be repaired. In 2014 the

iconic sculpture had to be replaced, after it was struck by lightning.

Are you pleased to see the Zephyrometer repaired? Send us an email –

The Zephyrometer is moving freely again, after undergoing repairs.

Dry weather takes toll on water supply Wellington Water is calling for householders to be water smart as the run of dry weather has led to a dramatic jump in water consumption. Water demand last week for Lower Hutt, Porirua, Upper Hutt and Wellington hit 168 million litres – much higher than the same time the previous week. Residents are reminded to follow ‘odds and evens’ gardening watering restrictions. Even numbered street addresses should water their gardens on even days of the month and odd numbered street addresses on odd days of the month.

Q: How are you dealing with the summer heat?

Brett Moodie – Newtown

Paul Nang – Newtown

Sandra Halaholo – Newtown

Michelle Phillips – Newtown

Josh O’Connell – Newtown

I think it’s a good thing – I go for swims in Worser Bay.

It is hot and busy but I come from Nelson so it is a bit cooler here. I leave the windows open at night.

The heat is good because Wellington is so windy, but I drink a lot of water to stay cool.

I have a pool at home so I try to swim every day.

It’s nice, we usually complain it is too cold. I go to the beach or outdoor pools.

Aggy Setefano-Pue – Newtown It has been a bit too hot for the past three weeks so I try to stay inside until it cools down in the afternoon.

Innovative partnership proposed A local councillor says a proposed partnership with Wellington Rugby would allow the Wellington City Council to better deliver their social agenda. Earlier this month, Wellington Rugby announced plans for an “innovative” partnership with the council and presented their idea to the community, sport and recreation committee, chaired by Wellington City Councillor Paul Eagle. Paul said the partnership would help promote council’s community programmes that rejuvenate neighbourhoods like Strathmore, eradicate graffiti,

help prevent homelessness and deliver a smokefree Wellington. “The council cannot solve our social challenges alone. We need to re-think how we connect with those people who need our support most – this is an innovative way to reach disadvantaged groups.” While some critics have called for council to stick to their knitting, Paul said tackling social issues is core council business. He said there was also a misunderstanding that what was being proposed amounts to the sponsorship of a professional rugby team.

“This is not a sponsorship. Not one cent of ratepayer’s money will go towards Wellington Rugby’s professional team, the Wellington Lions.” Paul said the proposal could include having the highly popular Absolutely Positively Wellington logo on the jersey of five of Wellington Rugby’s amateur representative sides, including the women’s team Wellington Pride and men’s team known as Wellington Lions. “The logo on the jersey would also provide a vehicle to promote the partnership – with any money generated going

directly back into community programmes, not to the professional game.” As part of the partnership, council would have access to Wellington Rugby’s marketing resources in addition to a number of well-known and influential rugby players including 11,000 players, administrators and volunteers from the eight clubs based in the Wellington City Council boundary area, Paul said. “We have a choice. We can do what we’re currently doing and find ourselves in the same situation in three years’ time, or we can do something different

and resolve these issues faster. “Ratepayers are constantly worried by begging, tagging and neighbourhoods feeling unsafe.” Paul said an amount being sought as part of the proposal was yet to be decided on. “It’s important that this proposal is open for ratepayers to scrutinise, it’s above board and there’s no secrecy. It will be presented for debate with every other councillor initiative and voted on.” The proposal will be submitted to council as part of determining its annual activities from July 1 this year.

Will future decisions on the location of social housing be solely at the mercy of the predjudices of local communities?

Dear Ed, Yesterday I was asked if I would sign a petition against the cycle way.

Busy month for local community centre

Warm welcome to Hataitai parish By Nikki Papatsoumas

it is we are about in a really beautiful way,” he said. “I love Wellington I always wanted to live back here and my wife always wanted to be here as well.” Reverend Winn was involved in seeing the church community open the doors to its $2 million centre in 2013. Reverend Arcus said he had big shoes to fill in his new role as Vicar. “I have just inherited all this hard work and I get to enjoy this amazing centre and offices. “It is such a huge thing and I just feel so lucky to be able to come in and step in at the end of that. “I feel a responsibility to do something significant.”  For more information about All Saints Church in Hataitai, head to the Church’s facebook page.

There is a friendly new face at All Saints Church in Hataitai – Reverend Ben Arcus has recently been appointed Vicar of the Hataitai and Kilbirnie parish. Reverend Arcus replaced Reverend Simon Winn, who was appointed Canon Precentor at the Wellington Cathedral of St Paul earlier this year. Reverend Arcus was installed as Vicar at a service in December after leaving his previous role as School Chaplain at Rathkeale College in Masterton. He moved to Wellington with his wife, two daughters and son. “It is daunting in many ways I never thought I would be back again, but I am passionate about seeing the church reshape itself so that it is really accessible to the community and we can present what

Things are busier than ever this month at the Strathmore Park Community Centre. Project coordinator for the community centre, Lisa Matthews, said the centre was offering a range of activities and events throughout February, which were sure to appeal to a broad range of people. A compost workshop would be held on Saturday, February 20 from 10am to 11.30am. The workshop would teach locals how to turn kitchen and garden waste in nutrient rich food for the garden, Lisa said. As well as this, Geeks on Wheels would be on hand to provide free tech advice on Monday, February 22 from 7.30pm at the community centre. “We also have free legal advice coming twice a month and a budget service running from the community centre. It’s all go for 2016. “Come and get to know your community centre and take advantage of the range of services that are on offer. We are also really interested in running things for the community so please get in touch if you have any ideas. “Hopefully, the community will find these upcoming events useful.” Last year, it was announced that the Wellington City Council was hoping to hand the management of the centre back to the community. Lisa said they have since had “eight incredibly enthusiastic and passionate people” come forward and volunteer their time to be part of a working group. “They will be going out to the community soon to talk about the Kaupapa of the organisation. Their work shows people are still passionate about their communities.”  For more information, head to the Strathmore Park Community Centre Facebook page.

Many hay fever sufferers also have other allergic conditions like asthma, eczema and food allergies - because of their over-active immune systems. The good news is that hay fever symptoms sometimes can be prevented and, usually, can be well-controlled. “Effective treatments are available”, say Self Care pharmacists, “but trying to avoid the things that ‘trigger’ your hay fever symptoms is a good first step. Ask us about the Hay fever fact card which

used, such as decongestant nasal sprays - but the use of these is limited, usually only up to 3 days at a time because of the chance of congestion reoccurring. There are also corticosteroid nasal sprays which are helpful for people with moderateto-severe hay fever, and for those who get hay fever symptoms all year round. Corticosteroid nasal sprays take a few days to work to full effect and should be used regularly everyday, even when symptoms are not present.

Who hasn’t suffered from indigestion and heartburn, especially after overdoing it with food or drink, or when rushing meals? These are very common conditions although for some of us, indigestion and heartburn happen for other reasons and can cause considerable discomfort. It’s good to know that help is available from your pharmacist. With indigestion (or dyspepsia), we can feel sick and experience gas, or a bloated feeling, in the stomach. “Indigestion causes discomfort and pain in the area between your ribs and belly button, and occurs during eating, or immediately after” advise Self Care pharmacists. A common symptom of indigestion is heartburn, where there is a burning feeling rising upwards from the stomach towards the throat. The acid contents of the stomach return, or ‘reflux’, back into the oesophagus (the space between the throat and the stomach, which is shaped like a tube) and causes irritation there. Indigestion and heartburn can be caused by: • Foods such as cabbage, onions, cucumber, curries and chocolate. • Certain drinks, e.g. alcohol, fizzy drinks, strong coffee and tea. • Eating food too fast; eating fatty or large meals, especially late at night. • Stress and anxiety, smoking, bending and stooping, being overweight.

• Pregnancy • Certain medicines – such as aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medicines for pain and arthritis. Try to identify the cause of your indigestion or heartburn and if possible avoid these things. If the medicines you take give you symptoms, let your pharmacist or doctor know. Sometimes taking food at the same time as you take your medicines can help. Remember to take your medicines with a glass of water, while sitting or standing upright. According to Self Care pharmacists, “there are changes you can make to help prevent or reduce symptoms of indigestion and heartburn. They include stopping smoking (see the Quit Smoking fact card); avoiding rich, spicy, fatty foods, and large meals late in the day, and eating smaller meals; having plenty of physical activity – at least 30 minutes most days; losing weight if you are overweight (see the Weight and Health fact card) and learning to relax and sleep well (See the Sleeping Well fact card).” Sometimes focusing on lifestyle changes may be all that is needed to stop indigestion and heartburn. If medicines are required, your pharmacy has a wide range of products available for the short-term relief of heartburn and indigestion symptoms. “We can assist you

in selecting the one that is best for your situation”, advise Self Care pharmacists. Antacids neutralise excess acid in the stomach. They can provide quick and effective relief but their effects don’t last long. Reflux symptoms can be relieved by medicines called alginates that form a ‘raft’ on top of your stomach contents, helping to prevent them being regurgitated. Where these medicines do not help, or symptoms are experienced as often as 2 or more times per week, other medicines may be required that decrease the amount of acid made by the stomach. There are several different types of medication available that do this. Your pharmacist can, in certain circumstances, supply these medicines without a prescription for the short term relief of heartburn symptoms. Your Self Care pharmacist will advise if this is appropriate for you. “If there is still no improvement with lifestyle measures along with short-term use of medicines, or if symptoms suggest another cause, then we would refer you to your doctor for further investigations and treatment”, confirm Self Care pharmacists. “Our Indigestion & Heartburn fact card has more information, so ask us for a copy.”  Prepared by Pharmacy Self Care, Pharmaceutical Society of NZ Inc, Level 10, Grand Tower Arcade, 16-20 Willis Street, Wellington, 6142.

Maths Tuition She also helps Adults with workplace Numeracy and Literacy or those requiring preparation pre-employment psychometric tests or recruitment test for the Defence Forces, Police, Fire Service and the like. ‘One-to-one tuition helps students gain confidence, skills, understanding and enjoyment as well as a greater appreciation of the role of maths in our modern world. Tuition is for those who are either struggling to keep up or want to get excellence and fly; and for any adults who want to improve their prospects through further study. At the junior level, if necessary, we spend time on the vital basics to establish a strong foundation and to boost confidence. For seniors, we also spend time going over past assessments/papers to improve grades. Understanding is important at all levels.’

Sue Visser, Maths Tuition, Kilbirnie says, ‘I love Maths and I love teaching. I have relocated to Queens Drive, Kilbirnie, Wellington after having worked in Christchurch for the past 10 years’. Elizabeth Chesney, Sue’s colleague in Maths Tuition, Christchurch for many years says, ‘I have experienced first hand the patience, kindness, expertise, enthusiasm, and fun that she brings to all her sessions, changing her methods to best suit each student’s particular learning style and needs. I highly recommend Sue. Christchurch’s loss is Wellington’s gain. Lucky Wellington!’ Sue says, ‘At Maths Tuition, I specialize in Year 6 to 13 and NCEA 1, 2 & 3 standards and assessments. I follow the NZ Curriculum and keep up-to-date with all the changes in the school curriculum through my membership of NZAMT and WMA.‘

Local swimmers earn spots in national swim squad Two Wellington girls have just earned places in a coveted national junior swim squad. Thirteen-year-old Sophie Irving from Island Bay and 11-year-old Tamrah Titcombe from Lyall Bay won their age groups at last Sunday’s Capital Classic swim held in Wellington, which was the third event in the seven swim New Zealand Ocean Swim Series. Their wins in the 200m OceanKids event have secured the two talented swimmers a place each in the Jetstar Super Swim Squad, which means they will travel to Auckland with a caregiver for a weekend camp with some top name elite swimmers and coaches in April. Throughout the season, each event will give six children the opportunity to earn a place in the 36 member squad. Sophie has been a regular at the New Zealand Ocean Swim Series for several years and has participated in a variety of swimming distances, including the 3.3km option. However, this will be her first time participating in the camp. “I'm excited. I’m looking forward to improving my swimming, having fun and making new friends,” she said. Sophie took the plunge alongside her younger brother Harrison and cheering both of them on at the sidelines were family and friends, with her grandparents also coming down to watch the Capital Classic for the first time. Another cheer squad at the swim was Tamrah’s, she was supported by her mum and dad and family and friends from her swimming and surf life saving clubs.

It will be Tamrah’s fourth time attending the camp, as she has won her age group every year she has participated in the series. Her mum, Hirata said she was thrilled at Tamrah’s success and was well aware of the benefits of the coaching from experts like Ricks Wells and the other elite swim-

Sportsinbrief Waitangi Day a “win” for Wellington Last Saturday’s cricket one day international, where Australia won, creating a series tie between New Zealand and Australia, was a win for Wellington’s economy on a busy Waitangi weekend. Wellington City Council’s Chair of Economic Development and Arts, Jo Coughlan, said many cricket fans were not only here to see the game but experience Wellington on the holiday weekend. “Unfortunately, while the match didn’t go the Black Caps way, attendance wise, the match was one of the bigger one’s the Black Caps have seen in Wellington – outside of a Cricket World Cup match – in years, with many cricket fans from outside the region taking advan-

tage of a long weekend stay in the capital.” Jo said there were plenty more events on this summer’s calendar that would bring millions more into Wellington’s economy. “[This] weekend’s test at the Basin Reserve between the Black Caps and Australia is looking to be a sell-out. The Chinese New Year Festival and parade will also be taking place over the weekend, at the TSB Arena and Shed 6. “Then we have the New Zealand Festival beginning in late February. This festival will pump tens of millions of dollars into the city over the month it’s on. The 2014 New Zealand Festival brought $70 million into Wellington’s economy.”

mers who are on hand at the camp. “I can’t speak highly enough about it. Rick Wells is a legend in swimming and triathlon circles. “His easy to follow, low-key, no nonsense approach to teaching the kids how training in the water can be fun- so long as they follow a few fundamental things like listening

and using correct technique, is so cool. “That is another reason why Tamrah was motivated to win a place in the Jetstar squad again as really enjoys seeing Rick and meeting the other superstars who help in to run the weekend event,” said Hirata.  For more information head to www.
