Tales of War By Sharnahea Wilson

Newlands man Ray Marshall joined the New Zealand Army at the age of 22 “looking for excitement”, at the time he didn’t realise there was going to be so much more to it. With Anzac Day approaching Mr Marshall will be wearing his own medals as well as the medals of his father who fought in Gallipoli when he was just 17-years-old. There have only been two Anzac

companies, the first one Mr Marshall’s father fought in, and the second one Mr Marshall himself was a part of in Vietnam. Malaya had become Malaysia in 1963 and Mr Marshall was sent over there as part of British protection, he was then posted in Tindak that same year. “We had been trained up for jungle warfare but we thought we were just going for duty – it didn’t turn out that way.” Continued on page 2

Local man shares his wartime stories

Continued on page 2 Mr Marshall’s platoon of 24 men was deployed to Labis, Muar and Borneo in Malaysia on multiple operations. At some stages the troops spent days trudging their way through waist-high swamps. “It was hard and very intense.” “We killed and captured a lot of Indonesians,” Mr Marshall explained about his time in Malaysia. He said when you are in those situations you have been trained for, you react immediately. “I had always wondered what I would be like under fire. Adrenaline kicks in and everything goes in slow motion, it’s like falling – it seems to take longer as you react. “But you’ve been trained and there’s no time to be too nervous, not until afterwards when you think about what could have happened.” After having come back to New Zealand, Mr Marshall was sent to Singapore where he had training before then being sent to Vietnam in 1969. “It was every bit as hard as the first

time around,” Mr Marshall said. “When you’re out there, you have to shoot at people before they shoot you.” Ray said what makes the thought of his time in the war easier now is that he was shooting at enemies from a distance. “I shot at people but I assume I didn’t

kill them – it was the other guy’s bullets that hit them.” Last year Mr Marshall and his sister went to Gallipoli for the 100 year centenary of Anzac Day and this year, once again, he will proudly wear his father’s medals as well as his own.

Locals fight to save Victoria University’s Karori Campus By Sharnahea Wilson

Concerned Karori residents are banding together to ensure the Victoria University of Wellington’s Karori Campus remains available to the local community. A community meeting, led by Karori Association Chair Lesleigh Salinger, will be held at the campus next week where the general public will get the chance to have their say on the future of the campus. The campus became part of Victoria University in 2005 with the transfer happening in line with the Government’s ‘Crown asset transfer and disposal policy’ which was administered by the Tertiary Education Commission. Now the future of the campus, which includes netball and tennis courts, a marae and a dance studio, remains uncertain. Dance teacher, Katie Haines, whose daugh-

ter runs classes out of the campus studio, is one of the many residents concerned about losing the space. “Hundreds of Karori residents are concerned and indeed perplexed as to why the Ministry of Education would gift to the university for just $1 the land the old Teachers Training College was situated on when so many community groups need it.” Ministry of Education minister Peter Hughes assured residents if the university wished to sell the land they would need to go through a significant process. “Victoria University would need to develop a business case to outline why they need to sell the land and the rationale behind this decision. “This would involve consultation with the Treasury, the Ministry of Education as well as the Tertiary Education Commission,” Mr Hughes said.

Residents have started a petition to save the campus which has received over 700 signatures so far. “We need more support before this meeting,” Katie said. The meeting will be held at the Karori Campus in Allen Ward room on Tuesday, April 26 from 4.30pm-6pm and all residents are welcome to attend.

Residents seek notification on new subdivision By Sharnahea Wilson

Crofton Downs residents are concerned about a new development on Silverstream Road saying it will compromise the safety of nearby children and their parents. At a recent Ngaio Crofton Downs Residents Association meeting, locals expressed their concerns the subdivision will put people who use the Ngaio Playcentre and Silverstream Playcentre at risk. “The developer has estimated a fourfold increase in traffic – up to 1700 vehicles per day – along Silverstream Road which is already too

narrow for its current traffic volumes,” local resident Andrew McLellan said. “There is already very little off road parking at the playcentre, and at peak times the road is confined to one lane.” Local resident Toby Green from the Residents Association said these concerns are widespread within the Crofton Downs Community. “Our biggest fear is that this subdivision resource consent will proceed without any notification, as did an earlier earthworks consent last year.” “If that happens there is no public scrutiny of a subdivi-

sion with more than 130 allotments that will have huge effects on the small Crofton Downs community.” Toby said at the meeting of over 60 residents it was clear there were major concerns with the design and scale of the development and its effects on the environment, traffic, stormwater and wastewater infrastructure. Chair of the Wellington City Council’s Transport and Urban Development Committee Andy Foster shared the concerns of the residents. “I would like the development to be notified but unfortunately that decision isn’t up

to me. “I understand they don’t want to slow down development but if it is the wrong kind of development which affects the community, then they should have the right to be able to participate in that process.” Toby urged local residents to contact Wellington City Council to request copies of the subdivision application and register their interests as a concerned neighbour. “We’re looking forward to welcoming new residents, but we want them to live in a safe and well designed community that is sympathetic to its surroundings.”

connect and discuss creating a better Wellington,” Charlotte said. Each student gave a two minute one-on-one presentation to a council representative about why they won the award, then at the ding of a bell, swapped seats to connect with someone new. “I talked about coaching students for debating and the Tournament of Minds and how these experiences had developed my leadership skills.” “In both these experiences, it was great seeing girls come out of their comfort zones and achieve their goals – whether that be to speak confidently in front of an audience or to be a good team member.” At the halfway mark, the councillors took the lead and explained to the students their respective roles and responsibilities.

inbrief news ‘Smokefree capital’ Wellington City Council’s community, sport and recreation committee have agreed to make the Capital City smokefree by reducing the prevalence of smoking to less than five per cent by 2025. The committee, chaired by Councillor Paul Eagle, has agreed to extend smokefree areas across the city from World Smokefree Day on May 31 this year as part of a Smokefree Action Plan. Smokefree areas will include the Civic Square, Bus Stops, Botanical Gardens, Waitangi Park, Council housing, Council operated community centres, pools, recreation centres, building entrances, and designated council laneways.

Students speed-network with councillors A local student was one of several community-minded youngsters invited to take part in a fast-paced networking event with the Wellington City Mayor and councillors. In 2015, students from a dozen Wellington schools received Absolutely Positively Student Awards. The purpose of this award was to promote and celebrate positive contributions Wellington students have made to their community. The recipients, including Queen Margaret College year 11 student Charlotte Barber, were recently invited to a networking session with the Mayor, councillors and council officers held at the Wellington Central Library. “The mayor opened the afternoon by explaining the event was a great opportunity to

Wadestown teacher Richard Smith was awarded with the Inspirational Teacher award during a school assembly on Friday.

“After having children in education for the past 18 years I knew Richard was not an ordinary teacher. “For the past 18 months, he has given my daughter and every other child in his year seven and eight class the gift of a lifetime - the ability to believe in themselves and the skills to learn in the way that best suits them,” the nomination stated.

MECHANICAL REPAIRS

Sixth generation Wellingtonian runs for Mayor Clarity, certainty and candor – those are three things Nicola Young will be aiming to project if she is elected as mayor in October. Wellington City Councillor Nicola Young has announced she will join the race for the Wellington mayoralty, hoping to take the top spot over the other six candidates. In 2013 Ms Young ran for Wellington Mayor and the city council and was elected as an independent to represent the Lambton Ward. Ms Young’s great grandfather was the Mayor of Wellington many years ago and she said her love of the city stems from having generations of Wellingtonians in the family. “It’s in my DNA,” she said.

Ms Young said her three main priorities are economic growth, congestion and rates. She said one way to ensure economic growth in Wellington was to focus more on students. “There is huge potential with international students – Wellington only has 8 per cent international students – we need to lift our game.” She said students need to know when they come to Wellington they will have decent student housing and jobs to go into after they finish. Congestion is also a big issue for Ms Young. She said the city needs “a complete review” of its roading. She said Wellington needs to see more people on buses which would be possible by lowering public

We have to stop wasting money.” Ms Young added that an important aspect of her campaign is the mayoralty will not be a stepping stone career move to Central Government. She said having spent three years on the council she learned an enormous amount “I have a track record for being direct and getting things done.”

This year, New Zealand celebrates 100 years since Anzac Day was first marked in 1916. Anzac Day takes place each year on April 25 and commemorates all New Zealanders killed in war, while also honouring returned servicemen and women. April 25 marks the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers, on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915 and WW1 centenary commemorations began last year. The aim was to capture

the Dardanelles, the gateway to the Bosphorus and the Black Sea, however, at the end of the campaign, Gallipoli was still held by its Turkish defenders. Among those who lost their lives in the Gallipoli campaign were 2779 New Zealanders, almost one in four of those who served on Gallipoli. As always, ceremonies are held at war memorials up and down New Zealand and in places overseas where New Zealanders gather to pay tribute.

From Hanoi to Ngaio By Sharnahea Wilson

An upcoming book fair in Ngaio is set to provide locals with some great reads while ensuring education opportunities for children in need. Founding director of Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation Michael Brosowski will be travelling to Ngaio from Hanoi, Vietnam, to help sort through and sell books in the Town Hall. Blue Dragon was set up in 2010 to provide an easy way for New Zealanders to make donations and promote fundraising activities. Each year Blue Dragon runs a book fair in Ngaio to raise funds for the work the foundation does with children and

young people in Hanoi. “The Wellington community has been supporting Blue Dragon through the annual Blue Dragon Book Fair, at the Ngaio Town Hall, for five years now,” Michael said. Michael will be at the fair for the first time this year and said he is excited to meet people from the local community. “I grew up with books, and still find real joy in exploring book stores and fairs. “This [book fair] is for the children of Vietnam, which is a cause close to my heart.” Michael said the fair had great support in the past which made a big difference to the lives of children in crisis. Last year the book fair raised $8000, and in 2014 it raised a

parking. Councillor Sarah Free, portfolio leader for Community Facilities, said the designs are very exciting and include areas for children and teens, a cafe and courtyard, a Makerspace for technology activities, meeting rooms and of course a lot of books.

She said she would like people in all areas of Wellington, but particularly the northern and

Free classes for World Tai Chi day

Enliven community support manager Bronwyn Williams and resource coordinator Keri Paterson encourage locals to give Tai Chi a go.

World Tai Chi Day is coming up on April 30 and Enliven are offering sessions free of charge to the community to celebrate. “Our modified Tai Chi classes are particularly beneficial for older people because studies show that it’s very good for improving balance and flexibility, circulation and heart health with regular attendance,” Enliven Community support general manager Bronwyn Williams said.

Enliven Tai Chi participant Ann Greenwood said Tai Chi has helped restore her balance and reduce her risk of falls. “I went from having three falls in a short period of time to none at all. Your balance is so much better when you come to these classes.” Enliven’s Tai Chi classes are just $5 per class and concession cards are available. There’s no need to book, just show up on the day.

The free Enliven Tai Chi classes will be available from April 26 and April 29 2016 and are free for people in the community who have never tried Enliven’s modified Tai Chi before. All are welcome to attend.  The classes will be held at Karori’s St Ninian’s Church, Wednesday April 27, 10am to 11am and Karori’s Huntleigh Home, Friday April 29, 10.30am to 11am.

Cashmere resident defies odds Time is precious. Johnsonville’s Thomas Martindale knows that all too well. Thomas was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2013, but it was seemingly dormant until last year. “My third chemotherapy session didn’t go well. My legs swelled up and I couldn’t walk or stand and I became very sick. I was transferred to a hospice and was told I had two days to live,” says Thomas. But Thomas defied the odds. “A week passed and I became more and more alert,” he explains. Thomas was alive, but unable to stand unaided, let alone walk. He needed full time care. That’s when he moved to Enliven’s Cashmere Home in Johnsonville. Since then he’s been supported to walk again. He has his independence back. “They have been wonderful here. When I came in I couldn’t walk or stand unassisted. Now I can get around on my own and I only use a walking stick if I feel I need to. I couldn’t have asked for anything better in the way I have been treated and cared for,” Thomas explains. “The Cashmere staff are so caring, efficient and so concerned for your wellbeing. You get a smile every time they see you. They are so warm and nothing is too much trouble.” Thomas says although he misses living at home with his wife, he is happy to be at Cashmere Home. “My wife, Jan, chose Cashmere Home for me and I’m very grateful – she couldn’t have chosen better. Warmth permeates the whole place. It’s a place of mates. That’s the nature of this place - I feel at home here,” says Thomas. “My wife is also so accepted here. Whenever the staff see her they acknowledge

her and are warm to her. That’s like any other visitor here, they are all welcome. My wife has meals with me a few times a week in the evenings and she enjoys the food as well.” Thomas says it has been an emotional journey for himself and his loved ones, but he’s thankful for the time he has. “I’m 83 years old and I’m very lucky that I have this time.

A few other cars parked there were also similarly damaged. In Newlands an insecure wooden shed located in Jay Street Park, containing bales of hay, was set alight. Another shed located in Beazley Avenue was also set alight. In Khandallah a moped chained to the fence at a house in Mandalay Terrace was stolen.

Community book fair on its way Two Karori clubs are joining forces to hold a community book fair with proceeds going towards the planned new event centre and other community projects. The Karori Lions Club and the Karori Rotary Club will combine for the sixth time to run the book fair at St Johns Hall. “We are again seeking donations of good quality books, fiction and non-fiction and we would especially like plenty of children’s books,” Lions member and book fair coordinator Beth Anders said. She said the book collection bins would be located at the Karori Community Centre, the Karori Mall and the Karori Park Café until midday on Friday, April 28. “This has been a very successful event in the past and our two clubs are most grateful for the wide support we have received through the book fairs.” Beth said the support the clubs received from past book fairs allowed them to help

fund significant community projects. “Roll on up and get your winter reading sorted.” The book fair will be held on May 6 from 12pm-8pm and May 7 from 9am-3pm. Beth asked people not to drop off old computer texts, magazines, encyclopaedias or dictionaries as they are unsellable.  For further enquiries contact Beth Anders, Karori Lions Club on 021 264 1481 and David Watt, Rotary Club of Karori on 027 246 6339.

Councillors call for Government action on begging By Sharnahea Wilson

After extensive debate about banning begging in Wellington’s central business district, the Wellington City Council’s community sport and recreation committee shot down the idea. At a meeting on Wednesday, April 13 the committee voted 12 votes to two against a ban on begging in the capital city. The main message from the meeting was the Government must acknowledge it has a key responsibility in dealing with social and economic problems which contribute to begging. Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown was glad the committee voted strongly against a ban on begging. “A ban on begging will not work. Begging is not a criminal activity and a ban, if enforced, could push desperate people into criminal activity.” Ms Wade-Brown and committee chair Councillor Paul Eagle will seek an initial meeting with members of the Cabinet who have direct responsibility for the agencies that deal with the issues behind begging such as unemployment, mental health and

prisoner rehabilitation. Mr Eagle said councils have so far had to bear the brunt of public concern over begging. “We need organised help from government agencies because councils do not have the resources to deal with such a complex problem.” He said submissions by police and retailers to the committee meeting added “disturbing insight” into the level of the begging problem. Councillors were told about beggars being ‘taxed’ by criminals in the CBD. Lambton Ward Councillor and 2016 mayoral candidate Nicola Young expressed her strong opinion for banning begging in the CBD. “Opportunistic begging has become rife around special events, cruise ship arrivals – and whenever Wellington is at its busiest. “It's a terrible look for a city marketing itself as the events capital of the country, and it's something I will address as Mayor.” Ms Wade-Brown said she will raise the issue of begging at the next meeting of the country’s city mayors in May.  What are your thoughts on banning begging in the CBD? email: herald@wsn.co.nz.

Your garage can be more than a place to park the car… it can be a home gym, office space, workshop, man cave or somewhere the kids can go on a rainy day. We specialise in turning garages into safe, warm, multi-purpose spaces with... GARAGE CARPET: Safe (no slipping!) quiet and comfortable to walk on, great for the kids to play on. Tough, durable and weatherproof. Won’t rot, smell or stain and reduces dust and dirt being tracked into the house. GARAGE DOOR INSULATION: If your garage door is not insulated, you only have a couple of millimetres separating you from the elements, it is a huge surface area of heat loss in winter and the reverse in summer.

We can retro fit your door with a blanket insulation. Ideal for metal sectional doors. Keep cold out. Keep warmth in! GARAGE CEILING INSULATION: Chances are your garage ceiling is also not insulated, and as with the door, another huge area of heat loss and gain. We can install insulation to the ceiling, making not only the garage warmer but also the house.

Dog exercise area gets tails wagging A brand new, fully fenced dog exercise area is set to get tails wagging in the Wilton area. The dog park is located at Wilton’s Ian Galloway Park, adjacent to the new BMX track. “This is now the largest fenced dog park in Wellington and is already proving to be extremely popular with local dog owners and their dogs,” Wellington City Council open space and parks manager, Amber Bill said. The park features a double gate system for safety, a tap and water bowl, a poo-bag dispenser, rubbish bin and night lighting to ensure dogs and their owners stay safe at

night. Council is also interested in investigating partnerships with local businesses to install dog agility equipment. Wellington Mayor Celia WadeBrown said council approved funding for three fully fenced dog exercise areas in the 2015/16 Annual Plan. “Ian Galloway Park was the first, and potential sites are being investigated to develop one next year and a third in 2018. “We have done some consultation around developing Sinclair Park in the south and Taylor Park in the north,” she said.

ANZAC DAY PARADE AND COMMUNITY SERVICE

Neither of the sites, which are existing dog exercise areas, are currently fenced. Council is currently reviewing the Animal Bylaw, Dog Policy and dog exercise areas. Preferred locations of the additional fenced areas could change depending on community feedback.  Details of these public consultations can be found on the Wellington City Council website, at local libraries and community centres. Public consultation runs from 1 April – 2 May 2016 so make sure you have your say. Changes will be agreed and in force by September 2016.

Monday 25 April 2016 The Chairman and Trustees cordially invite citizens, and service and youth organisations in the Johnsonville area, to attend the annual ANZAC Day parade and community service to be held in Johnsonville on Monday the 25th of April 2016. The parade will assemble in Burgess Road at 9.15am, and step off at 9.30am for the march to the service at the Salvation Army Citadel, 125-137 Johnsonville Road commencing at 10.00am.

Renovating can be costly and inconvenient, but can also increase the value and enjoyment of your home. There are two main reasons why people renovate; to add to the comfort, use and value of the home, and to tidy it up to sell. Before you launch into renovations, take time to consider whether the expense and disruption is justified. Consider the tastes of potential buyers, which really means keeping everything fairly neutral to appeal to a wider range of people. Not everyone likes bright feature walls or pink bathtubs. Renovations that will increase the appeal of your home may include painting the kitchen and bathroom, or putting in some decking to give an indoor-outdoor flow and an increased sense of space or some landscaping. If you intend staying in the home you may want to: - Add extra space to accommodate an

expanding family, or simply to add a sense of spaciousness. - Change the configuration of the house for better flow, ease of use or orientation to sun and views. - Update and remodel to give the house a fresher, more modern look. This could involve major changes such as taking out walls to enlarge a room, putting in a new kitchen, or installing new wallboards and ceilings. Or it could simply be a matter of painting or wallpapering. - Restore the house to its original style (while adding modern features in some areas, like the kitchen and bathroom). - Add value to increase your investment. If you are renovating to sell, it is likely that you’ll want to give the house an inexpensive makeover to freshen it up and make it more attractive to buyers. For example, repainting, repapering, or changing dated or damaged fi xtures, such as a cracked basin in the bathroom.
