Recent rain flushes away toxic algae Significant rain at the end of last week has flushed toxic algae from the Hutt River, however, river users are still encouraged to remain vigilant. Late last year dog owners were warned to keep their animals out of the Hutt River after toxic algae was discovered. If ingested toxic algae can kill livestock and dogs and contact can cause vomiting, diarrhoea and skin irritations in humans. The Hutt City Council said warning signs which were in

place from Birchville downstream had been removed and warnings in place at the Pakuratahi River in Kaitoke Regional Park and the Otaki River mouth had also been removed. However river users were urged to remain vigilant as toxic algae could re-establish quickly with the warm, dry weather forecast for the next couple of weeks, Regional Council Environmental scientist Mark Heath said.

“We know that toxic algae can get back to problem levels very quickly following a flood in summer time. We encourage people to still know what toxic algae looks like and keep an eye out for it at their favourite swimming or dog walking spots.” Monitoring of Wellington waterways and coastal areas is carried out by Greater Wellington Regional Council and local authorities on a weekly basis over the summer months.

 Results of the monitoring and latest warnings are posted at www. gw.govt.nz/summercheck. - Toxic algae information, including a guide of what to look for and what to do if you are worried about possible contact with toxic algae can be found at  www. gw.govt.nz/toxic-algaefaqs.

Valley Church fresh food initiative Continued from page 2 Pastor Andrew Sau from the Valley Church said the variety of fruit and vegetables available to local families changed every week depending on what was in season. Last week’s bags contained a variety of plums, apples, sweetcorn, celery, broccoli and potatoes, he said. Customers were also supplied with recipes and meal ideas each week. Pastor Andrew said every Tuesday morning fresh fruit and vegetables were delivered to the church. An army of volunteers then helped sort the produce into bags for people to collect later that afternoon. “It keeps climbing, we had 75 orders last week and we are hoping to hit 100 this week,” Pastor Andrew said. Pastor Matthew Lesinak from the Valley Church said the initiative had so far been “positive”. He said he believed its growth was a good indication of that. “We started in December with 25 orders and now we have 75,”

Pastor Matthew said. “It’s good to see the growth… we want to give people healthy food and get them on-board eating healthy food." Last week, Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard stopped in at the Valley Church to discuss the co-

op with Matthew and Andrew. Trevor said it was “lovely” to see all of the pair’s hard work. “I think it is really good, I grow a reasonable amount of stuff myself and I quite often go to the markets… fresh fruit and vegetables are about as healthy

as you can get, so the easier and cheaper it is, the better it is for the community.”  For more information, or to download an order form check out the Wainuiomata Fruit and Vegetable Co-op Facebook page or head to val-

Wainuiomata High School is welcoming a large of group of international students into the school’s family.

Gout can be a real Pain After all the eating and drinking over Christmas and summer, an unpleasant gout surprise may be in store! A gout ‘attack’ usually comes on very quickly, with extreme pain and swelling in the joint, which can look hot, red and shiny. If left untreated, frequent and severe attacks can cause permanent damage to the joints. Untreated gout also can lead to kidney damage, and is linked with obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes – all of which are risks for heart attack, stroke and angina. ‘Gout is a condition that needs to be taken seriously, and not left untreated’ says Clive. Gout happens when the body produces too much uric acid or if the kidneys are unable to remove the uric acid from food. Small crystals form in the joints and swelling and pain result. Gout ‘attacks’ can be ‘triggered’ by an excess of certain foods and alcohol. Foods such as offal, large quantities of red meat, shellfish, and large amounts of legumes. Drinking lots of alcohol, especially beer, can also bring on gout so it is best to cut right down. Soft drinks should also be avoided or limited. Some medicines can also trigger gout. The pain of an acute ‘attack’ can be relieved with medicines such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Or there are gout preventers which need to be taken on a regular basis. These may be prescribed for you by your doctor. Clive reckons that with gout, prevention really is better than trying to cure it. So, don’t dismiss that bad pain in your big toe, or any other joint for that matter! Talk with a pharmacist at Clive’s Chemist, or your doctor, about pain relief and what you can do to prevent further ‘attacks’.

LETTERS to the editor Council Spending Dear Ed, Last week I thought it was interesting to see current Councillor Margaret Willard attack Josh Briggs after he announced that he will be standing for council later this year. Josh said that he would like to see Wainuiomata get a ‘fair deal’. I think Josh is spot on with his comments, and can only assume Willard’s letter is motivated by politics. It amazed me recently to find out that the council had spent $60 million dollars in and around

Laings Road in Lower Hutt, with more being spent because of project over runs. councillor Willard mentioned that she is the deputy chair of the Council’s Development Committee. My understanding is that this is the committee that has been overseeing all of this spend, none of which has been spent on Wainuiomata. I even remember being in a Council meeting last year where councillor Willard actively opposed funding the viewing platform at the

top of the hill for Wainuiomata. Thankfully the rest of the Council seen sense and supported the project. Long story short, I think there are a number of really good things going on in Wainuiomata, but so much more could be happening as well. Good on Josh for putting himself out there. I look forward to hearing more about what he will offer Wainuiomata over the coming months if he is elected. J McCormack, Wainuiomata

A word from

Mayor Ray Wallace It was a great pleasure and privilege to acknowledge Harry Martin’s amazing contribution to the community recently. The awarding of a Mayoral citation also gave me the opportunity to acknowledge his wife Irene who has also had a significant and wonderful role. There was a good turnout and discussion at the information evening on the plans for the Wainuiomata Hill shared pathway. This 4m wide, sealed pathway will allow access over the hill between Lower Hutt and Wainuiomata on foot or by bike. There will be a roadside barrier and improved lighting. The first phase focuses on the Lower Hutt side of the hill and the second on the Wainuiomata side. Constructing the Wainuiomata side of the hill first would have been my preference but I am told there are various engineering challenges to work through on the rugged terrain that requires more planning. The Lower Hutt side has fewer complexities so will be started soon to ensure no delays to the project. The “Annual Plan” process and public consultation on the draft budget will be underway shortly. Some of our city-wide rejuvenation projects are more than first estimated by the working group. We are all very mindful of costs and are having strong

discussions on differences between initial and current estimates, which we have outlined in the draft budget. We have rigorous systems in place, including this annual consultation. We are in a strong financial position to continue these important projects, delivering them to a high standard, while still keeping our rates increase at an average of 2.7% - expected to be one of the lowest in the region. Debt will also stay within the limits established by Council last year. Local Wainuiomata residents have always played their part in the consultation process with well thought out submissions and, with a number of Wainuiomata projects in the wings, it’s important you have your say. We will be consulting on our plan from 29 March-29 April. Looking forward to hearing from you, till next time take care.

Bar manager takes part in Relay for Life By Emma McAuliffe

A local woman will take part in a relay this weekend to raise awareness for the disease that took her mother’s life. Eddy’s Bar and Cafe manager Tania Smith will be taking part in Wanganui’s Relay for Life over the weekend. Tania decided to take part in the Relay for Life as a chance to raise money and awareness for the lung cancer, emphysema. She said this was especially important to her as her mother passed away from the disease last October and she would be relaying “in memory of her”. She said she decided to do the Relay for Life in Wanganui as most of her family lived there, however, if all goes well in the weekend she may also do the one in Wellington later this year. The New Zealand Relay for Life started in 2001 in Palmerston North. Hosted by the Cancer Society, it is a 24-hour-long relay

undertaken by teams of at least 10 and team members walk for four hours each in pairs. Tania said there are 14 people in her team, including children. Tania said she was raising money for the 24 hour long walk by selling white roses in the bar and around the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre. She said there has been a “good response” to the sales so far and would continue to sell roses until the event. This is the first time Tania has taken part in the Relay for Life, however, the do-gooder also shaved her hair for breast cancer last year. She believes the relay is the next step in her personal journey and a chance to give back to the community. Those wishing to donate to Tania can do so by popping into the bar to buy a rose, coloured white with a pearl for emphysema, or to give money. All proceeds will go to the Cancer Society.

The Hutt Valley Disabled Resources Trust (HVDRT) will be hosting its first Triabilty Micro-Triathlon this Friday. The HVDRT has hosted full length triathlons in the past for people of all abilities, but the Wainuiomata micro-triathlon is the first of four that will be taking place in the Hutt Valley. The event is unique as it includes those with disabilities, is free and held

during a week day. HVDRT and Sport Wainuiomata Inc have collaborated for this event for the first time this year. The micro-triathlon will have participants swimming two lengths of the pool, participating in a 2km bike ride and then completing a 400m walk/run. Hutt City Mayor, Ray Wallace, will also attend on the day. While Registrations for both participants and volunteers are still open, event

manager for the HVDRT, Charlie Holland, hopes that members of the community will be ready and willing to come down to watch and support those taking part. Charlie says she hopes the event will involve more of the community than a full sized triathlon would. She says the big idea of the event is to shift attitudes in communities around people with different abilities. “Wainuiomata is one of the leading suburbs in in-

clusiveness in the Lower Hutt region.” The full size Triability Triathlon will be back in Wainuiomata in 2017.  The Triabilty MicroTriathlon will take place this Friday, March 4 at Wainuiomata Swimming Pool. Doors open at 9.30am for the event to start at 10am. For more information about the event visit its website www.triabilitytriathlon.com/ or contact Charlie Holland 04 569 3091.

This feels like the peak of the New Zealand cricket era. The post-Brendon McCullum era looks set to be challenging and the Australians have illustrated some concerns for the Black Caps going forward. The 2-0 series sweep which saw the Aussie’s return to the No 1 spot in the test cricket ranking, highlighted our deficiencies at opener, spinner and the drop off in form of our two opening bowlers, Trent Boult and Tim Southee. Mark Craig is not a test spinner, I would invest in leg spinner Ish Sodhi, who won’t strangle a run rate but is always a wicket taking threat if he masters his art. Martin Guptill has continued to struggle in the white clothes. With no real opening options there, perhaps he can become the new enforcer of the batting line up. He can play aggressively and look to score runs like McCullum has done and in turn find the niche in tests he is desperately needing. The biggest worry coming out of this summer has been the decline of penetration from our opening bowlers Southee and Boult. Both men are nowhere near the form they had at the World Cup a year ago. Southee took just one wicket in the last test and Boult is consistently 10kph slower than the swinging 140-plus we became used too. Neither bowler has been able to swing the ball as much over the last 12 months and they were massively out performed by their Australian counterparts. Hopefully a change of bowling coach helps because the bowling has deteriorated. Credit to the Australians though, they expose weaknesses in other teams and outplayed the Kiwis in every department besides sportsmanship.
