Hunt for Wainuiomata’s next top neighbour is on By Emma McAuliffe

Neighbourhood Support New Zealand and Hutt Safe City are on the hunt for this year’s top neighbour in Wainuiomata. Nominations are now open for the

‘Wainuiomata Good Neighbour Award 2016’ which will be presented next month. Neighbourhood Support Coordinator, Claire Taylor, said this was the third year Neighbourhood Support had given

out the award. She said in previous years winners had been recognised for being “cheery”, “fun to talk to” and for helping their neighbours. She was now encouraging as many people as possible to nominate their neighbours for this year’s competition. People could nominate their neighbours for a variety of reasons, she said. “A good neighbour definition is different to everyone. No recognition is too small. Last year we had so many nominations they handed out runner up certificates.” Claire said the award aimed to build a sense of community and safety around Wainuiomata. “We’ve got quite a tight knit community. [It’s] good to recognise and be thankful for that.” The award will be presented to this year’s winner by Lower Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace. To nominate your neighbour for the ‘Wainuiomata Good Neighbour Award 2016’ fill out the appropriate form and post it into specified boxes at the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre and the Wainuiomata Library. Alternatively email Nominations close March 31.

Wainui Y-man Continued from page 1 Following this the young men can decide to continue with early childhood teaching or follow another career path. Chief executive of Wellington Free Kindergarten Association, Amanda Coulston, said the young men served as role models in their communities and were able to encourage other men to think about a career in early childhood education. Charles completed his six month placement in 2011 and has since gone on to complete his degree in early childhood education. He said realising he was going to be a father encouraged him to continue work after he completed the programme.

“What really got me was having a son… I thought the work would give me better skills as a father. “With all the support from the Wellington Association I got through it and I got great grades. It not only helped define me as a father but as a… better role model for children.” Charles said he would encourage other young men to take part in the programme. “[I] see a lot of potential and uniqueness in what they can achieve, not just as teachers but as anything in general,” he said. “There is a very low percentage of male teachers, men think it’s a woman’s job [but] children need that father figure.”

As a Wainuiomata ratepayer you can apply for up to $5000 towards the installation of a clean heat appliance through the Warm Greater Wellington Cleaner Heating programme. The heating loan is paid off on your rates over 9 years at a current interest rate of 7%*. As an example, a heat pump for an average Wainuiomata lounge is around $2500 and this would add approximately $8.00 to your rates each week. How do you get this offer?

Kids raise money for Plunket By Emma McAuliffe

Eight local pre-schoolers fundraised for Plunket’s Annual Appeal Week at Countdown Wainuiomata last Friday. As part of their fundraising, children from Early Years Wainui Road got to choose whether they held a bag or a bucket to collect donations. They also shared the Plunket Blue Bear around with donators. Teacher Mel Souvannavong said it was a great way for the children to learn what Plunket was.

“What better way to get kids to understand what they are doing for Plunket Appeal Week. It’s a really nice way to get kids involved with volunteer work and with their community.” She said it was also important to get the kids out into the community they were from. The Early Years childcare centre is part of the BestStart group - one of the key sponsors of Plunket. Hutt Valley community support coordinator for Plunket, Esther Venning, said it was “good to get the kids involved”.

“We love how the Wainuiomata community has responded with such kindness and generosity. “We also love how Early Years Wainui Road and their fantastic children have come out to show that they care.” The children fundraised for one hour and raised $83 for Plunket. Esther said this was two to three times more than an adult collector would raise in this time.  Plunket Wainuiomata is located in the Community Centre. For more information contact them on 5648556.

The Wainuiomata Summer Pool closed at the weekend after a successful season. Hutt City Council’s leisure active manager, Marcus Sherwood, said the pool enjoyed a great season. “At Wainuiomata Pool the hot, dry summer meant attendance was just over 50,000 visitors for the season. “[This is] on par with last year, noting last year was a record year for our pools.” Marcus said to celebrate the pool’s successful season, the council offered pool goers two for one passes in its closing weekend. He said overall, the pool enjoyed several highlights this season. “Highlights include hosting the recent TriAbility triathlon… increased numbers attending our learn to swim programmes and a successful Big Summer Pool promotion [which is] a campaign to

members of the church as an opportunity for people on the street to come together and get to know each other. As part of the event the church organised two giveaways for residents of the street. “We decided to bless one of the residents with a trolley loaded with groceries and… another where we paid for [their] power for a month”, Morgan said. Morgan said the man who won the grocery draw was “overjoyed”. “He had a face that almost out-glowed the sun… the lady who won the power was beside herself.” There was also free clothing

and school bags given away, he said. Morgan said the kids of the street had a “great time” with a free lolly scramble and candy floss, while the adults enjoyed a barbecue. Morgan said the church chose Hamstead Street because of the negative reputation the road has had in Wainuiomata in the past. “We know a lot of great people on Hamstead Street. We wanted to show the rest of Wainui that great things happen on Hamstead Street.” The group was now planning to host another family event around Christmas which would involve all of Wainuiomata.

Jazz woos on a Sunday afternoon By Emma McAuliffe

Eddy’s Bar n Cafe hosts a jazz, blues and poetry group on the first Sunday of every month. Known as the Wainui Jazz, Blues and Poetry Club the group has been playing together since late 2015. They play at Eddy’s as part of the bar’s ‘Jazz n Blues Afternoon with a Twist of Poetry’. Member of the group, Roger Rangitaawa, said the “musicians come [to the afternoon] freely” and play anything from popular jazz songs to their “own stuff”. “Let us respect the roots of jazz but we must never forget our roots,” he said.

Roger said this had become the group’s motto. He said the group was made up of teachers at Wainuiomata High School and other musicians from around the valley. They all played with different groups outside of the club, he said. He said any musician or poet was encouraged to join in with their Sunday afternoon meets. The group played popular songs like ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ at their last meet at the beginning of March. The group was joined by local poets Tony Watling and David Smith. One audience member said the afternoon was “really enjoyable”.

Political Observations Dear Ed., Last week’s letter saying it was an attack on Josh Briggs and ending extenuating positive about him was only using attack as a defence and political debate. Josh Briggs is only a rookie community board member who is very ambitious, using the community board as a stepping stone to get on council and it is fair to say he is on the gravy train. What puzzles me about the letter written

by Mr J McCormack is I only found three J McCormack’s on the electoral roll and they did not live in Wainuiomata. But as a political observer I know what Margaret Willard’s politics are; she does not want party politics in council. Campbell Barry and Josh have links with the Labour Party so it’s clear it’s the silly season; the elections are coming. We are not getting effective representation from any

of our councillors or community board members. There are cost blow outs but the rate increase is being put through a consultation process. Our elected officials should be getting people to participate in the consultation annual plan process if they did want the rate increase to get effective community representation. Mike Grigg (abridged)

Registrations open for netball fundraising tournament By Emma McAuliffe

Sport Wainuiomata Inc. are looking for final registrations for their One Day Netball Tournament at Wainuiomata High School on Good Friday. The tournament is a fundraiser for two Wainuiomata girls, Kimihia and Lace Tangianau, who are hoping to travel to Sydney to play in the New Zealand International Softball Academy’s Under 15 Girls representative team in September. Sport Wainuiomata Inc. member Keri Coleman said the tournament was to help the girls get to Sydney and all proceeds from the day will go towards the trip. “[These] two young girls got a fabulous opportunity. The tournament is to help them get there.” She said the tournament worked within the goal of Sport Wainuiomata Inc.- to have “inclusive events” for everyone in the valley.

Sports talk with…

with Jacob Page Crowe’s cricket legacy Martin Crowe is New Zealand's greatest test batsman, most remarkable visionary and polarising figure. His death last week, after a near two-year battle with cancer robs New Zealand cricket of a lot of intellectual property. Crowe was always fascinated with good technique but combined it with a vision to push the game forward. His invention of Cricket Max in the early 90s was an early precursor to Twenty20 cricket. While the game encouraged big hitting and inventive shot making, it also rewarded good technique and playing straight or 'in the V' by having a 'max zone' where double the runs were on offer. In an interesting side note, it was also the peak period of Blenheim's blonde bowling speedster Carl Bulfin, who was the poster boy for Max Cricket. Crowe was an informative commentator and his

The netball tournament fundraiser is open for all ages and abilities of players. Mixed teams are welcome. Registrations for teams cost $100.  The One Day Netball Tournament will be held on March 25.

Schwarzenegger. Three years ago Leigh -Ann was debilitated by immense leg pain. “In 2013 I was diagnosed with Compartment Syndrome in both of my legs,” she said. “I was refused the surgery I needed but instead of feeling helpless I decided to… do something about it!” After months of training and

a strict diet regime, Leigh-Ann won the Novice Bikini under 160cm category at the New Zealand International Federation of Body Building Wellington Champs in September 2015. She later won her category at the Nationals in Auckland. “It’s been a huge learning experience... I’m proud to say I’m stronger and healthier than I’ve ever been.”

New rugby organisation on the hunt for members By Emma McAuliffe

A new rugby league organisation is looking for members as they kick off for the year. The Pukeatua Maori Rugby League club was started in January to provide the Wainuiomata community with the opportunity to take part in the annual New Zealand Maori Rugby League National Tournament. This year the tournament will take place over Labour Weekend. The club is promoting its membership through Facebook and other Wainuiomata Rugby League events around the valley. It hosted a ‘Summer Pool Jam and Manu Challenge’ at the Wainuiomata Summer Pool following the popular

Leonardo Va’a 9’s League tournament at the end of last month. The club’s executive committee member, Kylee Matenga, said they held the pool event to show their involvement with the community. “We wanted to do something that’s exclusive to Wainui… we wanted to give back to the community.” As part of the event pool entry was free and there was a free sausage sizzle on offer. Kylee estimated around 40 people turned up to the evening, including the Wainuiomata Premiere Rugby League team. “It was a nice way to relax for them. They could have a swim, have some fun.” Kylee said the club was really driving for membership at the moment.

trademark call of "Holy Cow" is remembered fondly by many television viewers. A combative person post retirement, he was not afraid to ruffle the feathers of administrators or players if he deemed fit. Crowe, the hero of the 1992 World Cup, was not always popular but always thought provoking. He often seemed haunted by his dismissal on 299, which stood as New Zealand's highest test score until Brendon McCullum's 302, two years ago. During his cancer battle, the New Zealand cricket public got to fall in love with him again. His induction into the ICC Hall of Fame at Eden Park during the 2015 World Cup and his interview at the New Zealand Cricket Awards are both well worth looking up on YouTube. His help with current Black Cap batsmen Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson will be his immediate legacy.
