Local kids are getting out their fishing rods, preparing their tackle boxes and slapping on sunblock in preparation for this year’s annual Blue Light Gone Fishin’ event at Wellington’s Waterfront. Community organisation Blue Light is gearing up for another

exciting Gone Fishin’ event, and with no cover charge, free food and free coffee there is no reason not to join in the fun. Senior Constable Brett Cronin of the Johnsonville Police Station said the event sponsored by Trade Zone is a “good, positive way of building trust between police and youth”. Continued on page 2

Continued from page 1 “It is about prevention as well as being a fantastic opportunity for us to interact with local youth and their families,” he said. The event is organised in conjunction with Gone Fishin’ star Graeme Sinclair who is a patron of Blue Light. Brett said the annual event on Queens Wharf is always popular with the kids, especially with Graeme there to lend a hand and share his expertise. Not only will there be a free sausage sizzle, free barista coffee and even face painting, there will also be spot prizes given out for the biggest, smallest and strangest fish caught. Brett said people are welcome to bring along their own fishing gear but there will be handlines and bait available for those children who don’t have their own rods.

nity events run by community heroes. “The event is something that draws families together. “It is an awesome activity for parents to do with their children.” Kirk also said the Gone Fishin’ event gives children the chance to explore the outdoors and try something new. “The spot prizes also prove lots of community businesses want to jump on board when it comes to community events. “It is going to be a great day out,” he said. If you are child who loves fishing or a parent who loves coffee, head on down to Queens Wharf on Saturday March 26 from 11am-3pm to take part in Blue Light’s free annual Gone Fishing event. For more information about the event visit www.facebook. com/BlueLightWellington

The Karori community has welcomed a new Minister to the St Ninian’s Uniting Church Parish. Hana Popea studied to be an Ordained Minister in Dunedin, and once qualified she was appointed to the Hutt City Uniting Church Parish. There Hana worked as a minister for 11 years before transferring to Karori as the first ever Pacific Island Minister at St Ninian’s, with an induction held on February 28 this year. Hana said the shift has been difficult because she had built relationships with parishioners

in the Hutt and had become familiar with the community. “I have now gone through that transition and had to cope with the sadness of leaving those relationships,” she said. Hana explained although it was a sad process, moving to St Ninian’s was also an exciting experience for her. “I’m quite excited to get to know the community here – there are lovely people at St Ninian’s” Hana said it is about being faithful to the calling of God. “I am thankful for the opportunity and the challenge that comes with being the new Minister to St Ninians,” she said.

Community art gallery By Sharnahea Wilson

Authorised by Brett Hudson, 29 Broderick Rd, Johnsonville.

“I just want the exhibition to be seen by local people,” Renata said. Her exhibition titled A Look at the Future will feature 11 photographs of children with the theme of what people can do for future generations. “The photos come from a variety of countries and cultures. “They are about what we can bring to future generations – what we can do for ourselves and our kids,” she said. Renata said having her work displayed in the mall is “going to be great” and she is

looking forward to talking to local people about her works. The exhibition will have its opening night on Friday March 18 and will be open to the public from 6.30pm-9pm. It will then be open on Saturday from 9am-5.30pm and Sunday 10am-4.30pm Every piece of photography displayed will be for sale.  Anyone who wishes to hire out the space for an individual or joint art exhibition can contact Kathleen or Sophie through suburban.artspace@gmail.com

Athar said the association is a great facility in supporting Pakistani people who have recently moved to New Zealand. “It gives the Pakistani community the chance to meet each other and for children to make new friends,” he said. “The great thing about this organisation is it is open to all Pakistanis while they are living in the Wellington area.” Athar said he was thankful to the election commissioner on the night Thair Nawaz who is also President of the International Muslim Association of New Zealand. “I am very thankful to the community for their support in choosing me as the leader of the association for the next two years,” Athar added. The new committee plans to meet once a month and organise events once every two

months while also supporting Pakistani students studying in Wellington.  Visit www.pawnz.org to join the Pakistani Association of Wellington New Zealand.

New committee for local Pakistani Association The Wellington Pakistani Association has elected a new committee board and with it, a new president for the next two years. The association encompasses members from Wellington including many from the Northern and Western Suburbs. On Sunday, March 6 the Association held an election night from 3pm-5pm where members were able to give a vote of confidence to the panel standing. Newly elected President of the Association Athar Bashir said the committee wanted to give their members the chance to say whether they had confidence in the panel. “We would have held a by-election if people had not agreed to vote in the panel,” Athar explained.

An already dynamic space in the Johnsonville Shopping Centre will be transformed into an art gallery over the weekend of March 19-20. Sub Urban Co-Working, located in the mall, will be home to Johnsonville’s first community art gallery, co-founder Kathleen Wright said. “As part of Sub Urban Co-Working’s strategy to support local enterprise the coworking space in the centre is being made available for artists to display their work for sale,” she said. Kathleen said opening the space for local artists will give people the opportunity to host their own exhibition and turn their passion into a business. Volunteer curator of the exhibition Sophie Giddens said the space will be much more accessible to local artists than bigger galleries in the city. “[Sub Urban] is a fantastic space and this is a great way to utilize it. “With this community art initiative we are aiming to put on professional looking exhibitions in a wonderful commercial space.” The first artist who will exhibit in Sub Urban is Johnsonville photographer Renata Grangeiro. Originally from Brazil, Renata travelled back to her home country and held four photography exhibitions over the period of six weeks.

Colourful tutu’s for tiny tots By Sharnahea Wilson

Johnsonville rest homes with spark

Cashmere Home and Cashmere Heights Home An elder-centred community Cashmere Home and Cashmere Heights Home are special. As well as providing daily living support we ensure residents have choice and control in their lives. We take every opportunity to bring companionship, fun, meaning and purpose into the lives of elders. Family and friends Cashmere is like one big family. Residents are encouraged to invite their loved ones to visit at any time; there’s no set visiting hours. And, for the children - we have a fully stocked toy box to keep them entertained!

Pets welcome We believe pets can be both calming and energising. So, we welcome animals at our home. If you have a pet that’s part of your family, ask us about moving to Cashmere with them.

Glenside woman Jo Thomas thought there needed to be an opportunity for local mothers to get together and share their skills so she decided to create a group. Jo invited other mothers from the local area to meet at the Churton Park Community Centre to learn the art of Tutu making for the charity Little Sprouts. “The idea is that each week we will learn something new from each other,” Jo said. The material to make the Tutu’s was donated by Little Sprouts for the women to put together to then be donated back to the children’s charity. Jo said the new group was a great way of “Connecting with other parents and giving back to the community”. “I wanted to meet people who were excited about the same things I was excited about,” she said. Little Sprouts ‘Craft Angel’ and mother Eliza Pick volunteered her time to help

other mothers learn how to make Tutu’s for young ones. Little Sprouts is a charity where people can donate anything and everything that will be helpful for mothers with newborn babies. They then give these boxes out to charities that pass them on to people in need. “Some people have no support network at all and need some extra help,” Eliza said. Items in the boxes include infants clothing, sleep items, nappies, health and safety items, books, toys and feeding items. The Tutu’s made at the Community Centre on March 20 will be sold at the upcoming Little Sprouts Easter Country Fair at Battle Hill Farm Forest Park in Pauatahanui. The fair will run from 10am to 2pm. To donate to Little Sprouts or for more information about the charity organisation you can visit https://www.facebook. com/LittleSproutsNZ

The social life At Cashmere we support residents to continue doing the things they love in a way that’s right for them. The busy social calendar and stimulating recreation programme certainly make for a vibrant and engaging atmosphere. Call in to see us and find out more.

College students are making their voices heard following the decision to write submissions to parliament about the proposed new Marine Protected Areas Act. Onslow College’s Enviro Group said they have cause for concern after looking at the Act in depth. Group member Maddie McVie said the new Act would protect much less of New Zealand’s sea life than what it previously did. “There are groups which are suggesting it is the oil and gas industries that will benefit from the new Marine Protected Areas Act,” Maddie said. Her fellow Enviro Group member Lilly Moss-Baker agreed, saying the Act excludes a huge area of ocean that comes under the Exclusive

Economic Zone (EEZ). “A lot of people were expecting the Act to cover all of New Zealand’s oceans,” Lilly said. She explained how the Act is only proposing to cover four per cent of New Zealand’s ocean area. She said though some parts of the ocean are covered under other Acts they are still susceptible to over fishing. “It may seem like we have an abundance of fish but compared GREAT VALUE ago we have dramatiwith 50 years cally$ less.”97 The students went with a group to theEXCLUSIVE Island Bay Marine Education Number 8 Centre where they were taught about Oil Column Heater 3 heat settings.

Accommodation and Dining at Peppers Parehua

Visitors to The Wool Shed can follow the 56 year success story of the Golden Shears competition, purchase wool products or get hands-on experience of NZ’s historic woolsheds. Demonstrations are available for shearing, spinning and weaving – so you will get a complete understanding of how wool is taken from the sheep right through to the finished product. You can also see

how Godfrey Bowen became a legend in sheep-shearing with an explanatory video showing what made his technique world-famous. Our other videos are also very informative. This national museum is open seven days a week in Masterton opposite Queen Elizabeth Park and is offering tickets at half price when the ad on this page is presented.

Let food and wine take centre stage and allow The Pavilion Restaurant at Peppers Parehua to introduce you to the best of the region in its intimate dining room overlooking the beautiful estate gardens. The Terrace Bar is embracing this Autumn and Winter with cocktails of the day, local beer specials and exclusively selected Martinborough wines of the week and month. Open 7 days a week, for breakfast and dinner.

New Tui Brewery construction With events being held on site over coming weeks Tui Brewery HQ manager Sharlene Epiha is expecting an influx of visitors. Sharlene cited the Tui Cycle Challenge which this year incorporates the Bush Cycle Tour, Tour de Manawatu and Tour de Beautiful on March 13th and the fun teams event Bring the Keg back to the Brewery on March 20th, which sees teams of up to four people work together to carry an empty keg of beer over rural farmland back to Tui HQ. DB Commercial manager Nick Rogers says a new brewery, due for completion later this year, will enhance the current Tui HQ experience by

allowing visitors to view the brewery process thanks to a contemporary, architecturally designed building with floor to ceiling glass. He says the location of the new brewery will help create an old-fashioned “Village Green” atmosphere and provide visitors with an experience not found anywhere else in New Zealand. “The new brewery allows our staff to experiment with some innovative new Tui brews, but it will add to the amazing offering we already have at Tui HQ on SH2 with the café, retail shop, Histui Museum, conference facilities, garden bar and Flagon Room function room that has so much character,” he says.

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: Will you be voting in the second flag referendum?

Till Elton – Karori Yes I will vote for change because I think we should move away from ties with the commonwealth, but they should have hired a flag designer.

Kelly Cinque – Karori

Sharon Cottrell – Karori

Craig Hayes – Karori

Lucky Parkhill – Karori

Yes I will vote but I haven’t decided what for yet.

Yes I am voting to keep the current because I don’t like the alternative.

I will vote to keep the current flag, the new design is awful.

I’m undecided but I think they could have designed us a better option.

Karl Hess – Karori Yes I will vote for the new flag, it was the one I voted for in the first referendum.

LETTERS to the editor Not influenced Dear Ed, What a confounded cheek to receive in the mail a colourful pamphlet ‘Vote for Change’ from the so-called powers that be! They list illustrious names and celebrity supporters in our community who support a flag change. Their names don’t mean a thing to me regards this personal issue of our flag. It is for us to decide and vote according to our preference, and not be influenced by outsiders.

Coffee plentiful We in New Zealand are very fortunate to reside in such a beautiful and peaceful country, which is not the case for so many in this troubled world. New Zealand has a democratic form of government, regardless of party in power. We don’t experience uprising, racial strife, etc. Our government has been evolving over many years by the Westminster example which in turn developed over the centuries. Our

judiciary emanated life-wise. Our lovely parks and way of life follow European influence. Our peaceful lifestyle is the envy of many from elsewhere. Our flag is part of who we are. Methinks the pamphlet is a last ditch stand for change when we understand there is not a demand for change at this time. Roger T. Lloyd J.P. Churton Park A non-celebrity.

Dear Ed, I am writing in response to the letter published in the March 2nd edition of the Independent Herald by Catherine Bindon. Catherine says "Have a look around, no coffee even though we are in the country's coffee capital". Well Catherine, perhaps you should take your own advice and have a look around - In Ngaio we have Cafe Villa, in Khandallah we have Parsons Nose and Cafe Du Parc, in Johnsonville we have Muffin Break

and Nada Bakery and the new one at the train station, in Churton Park we have Simmer Cafe - shall I go on? Or do these cafes not make a decent coffee in your opinion? How can you say with an honest heart we are 25 years backwards than other suburbs? Perhaps you should open the cafe you believe we do not have that is putting us 25 years behind other suburbs. S. Jansen Churton Park

Art set to revitalise historic parks thank you to the community who advocated for the city to purchase Flagstaff Hill and for working with the Council on the redesign of the Terrace Gardens.” “Everybody benefits from a ‘daily dose of nature’ and Wellington has superb green and accessible spaces close to our Central Business District.” Chair of the Environment Committee Councillor Iona Pannett said it was fantastic to see another green space created in the inner city. “We know Wellingtonian’s want more green space and we hope that these two areas will be enjoyed by many.” Visitors are invited to bring their brightest picnic blanket along to watch the art unfold, listen to local musicians, enjoy the traditional lolly scramble and be part of a people-sized picnic blanket mosaic. The mosaic will be photographed by a drone at 1pm.  Art in the Park will begin at 11am with a flag raising ceremony at the small park on top of Flagstaff Hill.

Wellingtonian’s are invited to join in the celebrations of parks week by watching artists use their talents to revitalise local parks. Art in the Park on Saturday, March 2 will see the historic Flagstaff Hill and Terrace Gardens be spruced up with some mosaic art by Rachel Silver and French street artist Olivier Kenneybrew. As part of the celebrations supported by Wellington City Council two innovative new artworks will be installed on the walls of Flagstaff Hill and visitors can wander down to see the artists in action in the Terrace Gardens Park. Artist Rachel has created large scale mosaics all over the world including the Sapopema Steps in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She has just returned home after travelling and living abroad and sees this project as an exciting opportunity to network with artists and cement her practice here. “I’m really excited to be creating my first public art work in the wonderful city I grew up in,” Rachel said.

Karori Golf Club has been keen to make a contribution to the Events Centre. With a number of its members also involved in the KEC committee the idea of an event run in partnership would be a fun way to bring people together. “We’re really happy to open our doors and our fairways to support Karori Events Centre in this final push to get the funds to start the build,” Karori Golf

Club President Jono Wake says. “The money raised goes to the Events Centre, but the bonus for us is the chance to bring people out to the club”. KEC Trustee Matt Beattie says the idea behind the fun day is to be “both friend-raising and fund-raising. One of our aims is to draw together some of the individuals and families in the Karori community”.

Riders roar their way up to Paihia

Matt Kilgour did not hesitate to jump into the water fully clothed to rescue a four-legged friend from drowning. Matt who manages Keith Spry Pool, Khandallah Summer Pool and Nairnville Recreation Centre successfully rescued a clearly struggling dog at the Dogs in Togs event at Khandallah Summer Pool on Sunday, March 6. About 160 dogs and their owners took advantage of their 30-minute time slots to splash, bark, jump and fetch before the summer pool is closed for the season. “The event has been very successful”, Matt said. It is hoped this popular event will be bigger and better next year with interest already shown from dog organisations including the Police. 1.

The renowned Thunder Run is open to all riders and is expected to see over one thousand participant’s roar their way across some of the best terrain Northland has to offer. Director of Wellington Harley Owners Group Shayne Gray said the Iron Run is the number one event on the motorcycle calendar. “It’s a fantastic event open to all motorcyclists to attend. “It’s a place for like-minded people – or kindred spirits – to get together and share their passion.” Shayne said about 40 Wellington members from all over the Northern suburbs will travel up to Paihia, some making a week-long event of it. “People that attend events like this come from all walks of life, but there is really good camaraderie,” he said.

Queenstown there were quite a few Australians, and even some riders from the UK and the US,” he explained. Shayne said the event is “just a fantastic time” for riders and spectators alike.

Celebrating Local Heroes By Sharnahea N Wilson

Stephen Cook joined the Johnsonville Lions Club in 1988 and has been a very keen, active member and community volunteer ever since. Stephen said being part of the Lions Club gives him the opportunity to participate in community activity projects – “big and small”. “You also meet a lot of really nice people, some have been with Lions for many years and others have just joined recently.” Every Tuesday morning Stephen dedicates his time to volunteering at Karori Wildlife Centre Zealandia. “I do track maintenance there so I make A solid sure tracks are clear and safe to walk on,” Stephen explained. He said he retired from work about two and a half years ago and has been helping Zealandia for about two years. Stephen also spends one day each week volunteering at Kiwi Community Assistance where he helps sort through clothing, furniture and food to then pass on to other charities. “We give the items to charities such as Social Welfare groups or Women’s Refuge to disperse to those in need.” Stephen maintains there is nothing quite like local people helping out their local communities.

Stephen wears many hats as he is also on the citizen’s advisory committee for the new library coming to Johnsonville. “Once you retire you realise there is a lot more to be done out there,” Stephen said. In his spare time Stephen enjoys motor biking and said his love of volunteering started about 30 years ago when he voluntarily ran a motorcycle training school. Stephen said it helps to have such a supportive family with his wife also being heavily involved in Lions and his daughters helping out when they can. Stephen said he will continue to volunteer as it not only helps out the wider community but it also gives him a sense of satisfaction knowing he can assist local people. Sponsored by:

Preschooler’s jump into action

Cricket club celebrates 130 years

Johnsonville’s Premier Preschool students ran, jumped and threw at last week’s annual sports night held on the Johnsonville School field. Families were invited to take a picnic dinner to enjoy and to get involved in a variety of races including potato and spoon, running and sack jumping. The focus of the evening was on family participation, socialising, being active and most importantly having fun. One parent there on the night said “It is great that the Preschool children have their own Sports Night”. “It is something that they look forward to, something of their own, rather than only attending older sibling’s sports events,” the parent said. Another parent agreed saying they were really impressed the preschool held the sports night for students and their families. “It is a great way of socialising, having fun and involving whole families.” Marian Ayres Hill from Premier Preschool said they asked everyone to wear red and bring a gold coin donation to show support for the Heart Foundation. “The preschool has been involved in the Heart Foundation Healthy Heart Awards for several years and this event helps us to promote healthy food choices and active movement amongst our wider community. “We had a great turn out with 15-20 families attending,” Marian said. She said the children had practiced running, sack races and potato and spoon races during the week. “[We] were delighted to see the children showing such great skill, determination and focus in all their events,” Marian said.

Celebrating 130 years in existence the Johnsonville Cricket Club invited past, present and future players to join in commemorating this momentous event. The theme of Saturday, February 27 was past, present and future players coming together to celebrate the clubs history. The large crowd at the club also farewelled coach Michael Parlane who had done a tremendous job for the club over the past two seasons, Club Manager Rick Mudgway said. “Michael is returning to Christchurch to take up a new career,” he said. Rick said there was a great turnout of players from all ages on the night who were there to celebrate such a significant milestone for the club. “On the field the Premier team put on a good show for the viewing crowd scoring 196 batting first against old rivals Onslow. “In reply the Devon and Patterson sponsored Johnsonville team bowled Onslow out for 142,” Rick said. He said notable performances on the day came from Shameera Wijesooriya batting for Johnsonville with 66. “Bowling for Johnsonville the two Scott’s, Edgecombe and Borthwick each took 3 wickets with former English test

player Scott Borthwick taking three for five and Edgecombe taking three for 45,” Rick explained. A highlight for everyone on the day was a visit from one of the club’s oldest

surviving members Terry Hawkey. Rick said overall the event was a great success and it was brilliant to see past, present and future players come together to celebrate.
