Volunteers needed Continued from page 1 He said many new sponsors had come on board and a generous donation from Ninox Construction would be a huge help with fuel costs for the year. “This year hopefully we will get more support. We want to be in a position to be able to change our vehicle. “That would help us in terms of getting involved with any civil defence stuff. It also gives us protection at the end of the day.” Paul said unfortunately, the patrol team had recently been having issues with a group of youth in the community. “There has been a lot of wilful damage and tagging and that has been going on since early December around the CBD and other areas around town.” He said the patrol car had been bottled and the back panels on the car had been kicked in.

Locals released close to 3000 balloons for Ataahua Journey at a service at the weekend.

Business Breakfast

Remembering Ataahua

By Nikki Papatsoumas

Close to 300 balloons were released at a poignant memorial service on Pukeatua Bridge at the weekend for Ataahua Journey Harris-Timoti. Ataahua sadly died last week. The two-year-old had suffered from bronchiectasis, which

causes the lungs and airways to become severely damaged. Ataahua needed the aid of an oxygen tank to breath. In memory of the toddler, more than 50 locals gathered at Pukeatua Bridge to release balloons and bubbles on Saturday morning. Ataahua’s aunt, Awhi Keefe,

said it “meant a lot” to see friends, family and members of the community gather to show their respects. “It really means a lot. Not only to myself, but to Ataahua’s family. She was a community baby and the support at the moment has been overwhelming. “I’m speechless.”

The balloons were released from the bridge at 1pm, following Ataahua’s tangi. Awhi said family were also releasing balloons at the same time following her tangi, as were family and friends as far away as Australia. “We are releasing them in one go,” she said.

Public meeting to explore housing issues By Nikki Papatsoumas

Locals are invited to attend a public meeting on issues surrounding housing in the Hutt Valley next Monday. The meeting will be attended by local electorate MP’s, including Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard. Mr Mallard said after door knocking residents across Wainuiomata and the Hutt Valley last year, it “became clear” that housing was an issue.

He said there were issues with rental properties, access to emergency housing and affordable housing for first home buyers. A lot of rental housing available to families these days was damp and had no insulation, eventually leading to health problems, Mr Mallard said. He also said the Government’s definition of affordable housing was unrealistic. “It is very hard for most first home buyers. We are looking for solutions.

The first business breakfast of the year will take place on Friday, February 26. This month’s breakfast will be presented by Mani Malaeulu. Mani is a passionate business owner, consultant and speaker. His focus is on building leaders in the young men of our community.  For more information, email devwoa@gmail.com

“People are having trouble getting into their own home. [I believe] it’s a generational thing, there are people who are really scared that their own kids, who might be parents themselves, are never going to get into their own home. “Everyone deserves a home they can be proud of. It is a mix of getting people into their first homes and quality rental places.” Mr Mallard encouraged the public to attend next week’s meeting, whether it was to

offer their input or listen to others. “I encourage people to come along and give contributions of about a minute explaining why this is a problem and why this is a solution… or just to come and listen. “We have a political view… but we are always interested in what people think.”

Treat your dog to a Valentine’s Day treat and explore the Gum’s Loop Track together. Paws in the Park will take place on Sunday, February 14 from 10am at Richard Prouse Park. People of all ages are welcome. All you need is good walking shoes and a plastic bag to clean up any mess your dog makes.

 The public meeting will be held at 6pm at Walter Nash Stadium in Taita, on Monday, February 15.

Year 9 students giving back to their community By Nikki Papatsoumas

Year 9 students at Wainuiomata High School are looking for ways to give back to their community. Deputy Principal, Janette Melrose, said all year 9 students would attend camp at the end of the month, followed by two days of service to the community.

“Whether it is an elderly couple that need their yard cleared, or a park that needs cleaning, it’s not going to cost the community anything, as a school we just want to put some time back into the Wainuiomata Community.” Janette said they had tried service to the community programmes at the school in previous years.

“Past service has included cleaning Petone Beach but this year we really want to stay in the valley and spend time with people.” Janette said the programme tied in with the school’s values and was also a part of its Aspire programme. If you have a project or a job that year 9 students from Wainuiomata High School

could complete as part of their service to the community call the school office on 938 3224. Year 9 boys will be completing their service to the community on Monday, February 22 and Tuesday, February 23. Year 9 girls will be completing their service to the community on Thursday, February 25 and Friday, February 26.

Free parking for one hour in Lower Hutt Visitors to the Hutt City’s central business district can treat themselves to one hour of free parking. The Hutt City Council is currently trialling the free parking scheme, before assessing it to see if the opportunity had a positive impact on retail spend and activity. Mayor of Lower Hutt, Ray Wallace, said the council was there to support retailers and the business sector. “We considered all views on this issue and see this trial and assessment as the most effective way to see if free parking has a positive impact on retail spend.” The council said the trial came from discussion and workshops with relevant community groups and

The new entrants class at Konini Primary School.

Back to school Konini Primary School’s youngest students were full of beans for their first week back at school last week. The school has a new entrant class of 13 children this year. Of this class three five-year-olds had their very first day at school last Monday. New entrant teacher Liz West said the children had had a fantastic first week back. “After the first day they were happy but tired. But they have been slowly getting stronger and adapting to the fact they weren’t going to have their toys out all

day long.” Last week was also special for Liz – it was her first week as new entrant teacher for the school. Assistant principal Katherine Wong said the school tried to integrate new entrant students into school life as smoothly as possible. “We have a getting ready for school party for the kids who are turning five… they bring their parents and come and meet the teachers and collect a take home pack. “In getting them ready for school we like to take them around and show them where everything is so they are really familiar before

they start.” Last week, more than 10,000 five-year-olds started school for the very first time. Over the course of the year, another 52,000 children are expected to begin school. Education Minister Hekia Parata was among those to wish children and young people well as they prepared to pick up their school bags and head to school. “I hope kids are feeling full of beans after the summer break and looking forward to challenges of a new year.” Just over three quarters of a million children returned to schools across the country this year, she said.

businesses around increasing retail activity in the central business district. The Traffic Subcommittee, which made the recommendation to council, heard submissions in support of free parking that included the view that the cost of paid parking is a deterrent for shoppers. However, council officers reported that international evidence and recent free parking trials in New Zealand towns and cities did not suggest free parking was an effective strategy to attract more shoppers to the city. Before a permanent decision is made on whether to keep free parking, there will be a full consultation with residents.

New community programmes By Nikki Papatsoumas

Wainuiomata Library is kicking off the New Year with a range of classes and programmes.

Wainuiomata Library is kicking off the New Year with a range of classes and programmes for members of the community to take part in. Wainuiomata Community Hub programmes team leader, Tania Snoop, said this year they would be introducing a range of new programmes to the community. Next week, a ‘Lunch and Learn’ business training and information workshop will take place at Wainuiomata Library. “It’s a great programme that was run over in the Hutt. It is recognising there

are some neat businesses starting up here in the Valley,” Tania said. The workshop is aimed at small businesses and start-up businesses who want to upgrade their business skills. It will also involve a goal setting workshop, to help those in small and start-up businesses define visions for the next 12 months and learn how to translate them into actionable and achievable tasks. Wainuiomata Pacific Education Success Initiative (WaiPesi) also kicked off 2016 with a barbecue and information evening which took at Wainuiomata Library last night. WaiPesi was launched almost five

years ago, by a group of intermediate teachers in Wainuiomata. Through WaiPesi, sessions are held to help parents learn ways in which to encourage their children to learn. New and returning families attended last night’s barbecue to say hello and find out what’s planned for the year ahead.  For more information on WaiPesi, check out the WaiPesi Facebook page. - The Lunch and Learn workshop will take place at Wainuiomata Library on Friday, February 19. Workshop is $5 which includes a brown bag lunch.

LETTERS to the editor Post box a “huge hit” Dear Ed, I manned a stall outside Clive's Chemist for a few days before Christmas. The new post box was a huge hit. So many people stopped to ask when it had been put in, and heaps of people used it, several on mobility scooters too. It was the unofficial Queen Street Christmas tree for two of those days, it was lovely to sit there and have so many Wainui people stop and talk to me about who they were sending

their mail off to and how long it had been since they'd seen them etc. One young lad came up with his mail and asked me how the postman got the letters out, I showed him the flap over the secret keyhole and he was fascinated, such a sweetie. I'm thinking of putting up a couple of deck chairs there on Saturdays so people can stop and chat again. This is why I love Wainuiomata. Sam Scott Wainuiomata

Letters on issues of community interest are welcomed. Guidelines are that they should be no longer than 150 words. They must be signed and a street address provided to show good faith, even if a nom de plume is provided for publication. The editor reserves the right to abridge letters or withhold unsuitable letters from publication. Send or fax them to the address on page two, or email them to aaron@wsn.co.nz. Please note that your name and street address must also be provided in e mails.

Speed limit a “huge problem” Dear Ed, There is a huge problem with the speed limit on Coast Rd and I don't think that it is the actual posted speed limit, but the people using it. I live at the beginning of Coast Rd; and at times, the cars and especially motorbikes that go past are doing way more than the speed limit. As they go past the last roundabout at Hine Rd they seem to open up and floor it. My concern is that there are kids walking along the walkways and if these people lose control, they will kill these kids

(one of the reasons why I won't let my kid walk alone along Coast Rd). They should put cameras and speed bumps to curb these individuals from speeding. This would stop the speeding and hopefully cut down on the reckless driving of certain individuals. The police cannot patrol this road all the time; therefore other means of slowing them down should be used. I have had car and motorbikes go past that are going so fast and their cars are so loud, that they have woken me up numerous

times in the early hours of the morning. As you get further down coast road as you are heading towards the golf course, I think the speed limit should be reduced due to the tight curves in the road, but these roads should also have some sort of deterrent to stop the speeding in this area. I am surprised there are not more accidents in this area. I hope this eventuates with a solution to reduce the speed in Coast Rd. D Gibson (abridged) Wainuiomata

Many thanks for post box Dear Ed, I would like to say “many thanks” to Clive and Trevor Mallard for coaxing New Zealand Post into putting a post box in a handy position in Queen St so that people, like myself,

don’t have to walk over to the New Zealand Post shop in the Strand every time to post our letters and birthday cards. Yes, some people still like to keep in touch with relatives or friends

Sevens tournament a success By Nikki Papatsoumas

Wainuiomata may have not taken out the national club sevens title at the weekend, but nonetheless have described the tournament as a “great success”. Wainuiomata hosted the New Zealand National Club Sevens tournament at William Jones Park last Saturday and Sunday, after beating Hutt Old Boys Marist in last year’s final held in Tauranga. The winner of the County

Middlesex Wavell Wakefield Cup this year was Melville, who had travelled from Hamilton to take part in the tournament. They beat the Upper Hutt Rams 34-24 in the cup final. Wainuiomata played Hamilton Marist in the semi-final of the bowl cup, but Hamilton Marist won. Club president, Jim Miller said despite not taking away the cup, last weekend’s tournament was a “great success”. “The tournament went really

well due to the great effort of our club members. “Our guys played really well. In our first game out we actually beat Melville. But it was great having sides from as far as Northland, Taranaki, Hawkes Bay and Nelson. “Over the whole weekend the people were just flying in and out. The music was going, the red bull tent was up. “It was great for us as far as the club goes. It was great for getting us out there publically.”

Netball trials for Ulalei Club By Nikki Papatsoumas

Ulalei Netball Club is inviting members of the local community to attend trials this weekend for the upcoming netball season. Ulalei, which was established in 2004, is a small netball club based in Wainuiomata. Club secretary, Toli Sagaga, said the club’s aim was to provide a club that was accessible

for players of all playing abilities. “We have a close relationship with Wainuiomata High School with the aim to provide a seamless transition for college players, from school netball, to club netball. “We are passionate about netball for our club and for our community.” Toli said the club’s achiev-

ments on the netball courts have exceeded expectations, having two teams playing in the Premier 1 and Premier 2 grade last year. For this reason, Toli said the club aimed to have a good turnout for trial this year. “Notices have gone out via social media, the club's Facebook page, Twitter, and email. “ Toli also said the club was

excited to have a new Premier 1 coach, Claire Campbell. “Ulalei are looking forward to Claire embarking her skills and expertise on Team 1 as well as the rest of the club.” Toli said although the club prided itself on having two teams at the top of the Hutt Valley competition, they also welcomed players who were new to the game or just wished to play socially. “Competition games are on Saturdays at the new Walter Nash Centre in Taita. We are also on the lookout for a Premier 2 coach and manager. “So if you prefer to either coach or manage, pop on down to trials and have a chat with one of the lovely committee members who will be more than happy to answer any queries you have.” Trials will take place at Wainuiomata High School, this Saturday, February 13 from 10am to midday, Wednesday, February 17 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm and Wednesday, February 24 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
