Every bit 60 counts years Share blood, save a life

on By Nikki Papatsoumas

For the first time in six decades a local veteran will return to the country he served in as a young man. Miramar local Phil Wallace is currently en route to Korea – 60 years on from when he served as a transport driver following the Korean War. Phil will travel as part of the ‘Revisit Korea Programme’ which is organised by the Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs for the Republic of Korea. The programme conveys the Korean people’s appreciation and respect for sacrifices of the Korean War veterans who defended Korea’s democracy and freedom. Phil, who is a member of the Korean Veterans Association, left for Korea on Wednesday and during his visit will take part in a wreath laying at the National Cemetery and an Anzac Day dawn service.

The New Zealand Blood Service is appealing for the community to head along and donate blood at a local drive next week. Next Thursday, a blood drive will be held at the ASB Centre in Kilbirnie and the New Zealand Blood Service are hoping for at least 60 donors to attend on the day. Nicola Binns from the New Zealand Blood Service said this was the first time there had been a blood drive in Kilbirnie for more than 10 years. She said this was because there had not

But we still really need support from all local businesses in Miramar and surrounding suburbs.” Licensed under REA Act 2008

Service returns to Island Bay By Nikki Papatsoumas

After a year hiatus, Island Bay will host its very own Anzac Day service this year. The service, which will take place on Monday, will be held at Island Bay School and this year, will be led by Lay Pastoral Leader for the Catholic Parish of Wellington South, Joe Green. The service is run by the Island Bay Ministers Association on behalf of the Wellington RSA. In attendance this year will be guest speaker Rongotai MP Annette King and John Meredith will be representing the RSA. The service will involve a reading, a prayer and the tolling of the bell at the school’s own war memorial bell tower, which bears an inscription to alumni who died during the world wars. A bugler will also play the last post. Joe said this year in his reading he wanted to focus on not only those who lost their lives in war, but also on those who were injured mentally and physically and those who stayed back and kept the home fires burning. “To be leading the service, it is an honour really. It is a

privilege,” Joe said. Reverend Nathan Parry, from Island Bay Presbyterian Church, has led the service in the past. He said each year a different local church leader ran the service. Rev Parry said the churches were well supported by the community each year, especially the scouts, brigades and guides groups. He said it would be great for Joe to take the stand this year and be seen by the community. Nathan said last year the decision was made to not go ahead with the local service as it was believed most locals would want to pay their respects at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park for centenary commemorations. “However, people with young families found it hard to get there, so people were asking us to run it again back [in Island Bay].” Rev Parry also paid tribute to John Williamson, a veteran who up until this year had represented the local RSA at the Island Bay service. “It has finally come to the point where he has stepped aside, because of his health he

inbrief news Man charged with assault A 28-year-old Wellington man has been charged with assault. This comes after a woman was approached by a man on Lambton Quay who grabbed her waist and tried to kiss her, last Monday. Senior Sergeant Jason McCarthy reassured the community that police would thoroughly investigate offending of this nature. “I’d also like to thank members of the community who assisted in identifying the offender which led to his arrest.”

isn’t up to it. “We are pleased John is taking us on, but it is also important to pay tribute to John Williamson – he has been a real stalwart.”

 The Island Bay Anzac Day service will take place on Monday, April 25 from 12.30pm at Island Bay School.

A section of redundant trolley bus overhead wires on Hataitai Rd, Waipapa Rd and Waitoa Rd, will be removed early next month. The Greater Wellington Regional Council said the wires had not been used since October last year and no longer formed part of the trolley bus network. Work will be carried out between 9am and 4pm over a two-week period with minimal traffic disruption expected, the regional council said.

Animal control and parking officers to wear cameras Wellington City Council’s five animal control officers will now wear cameras to help protect them in situations where their safety might be at risk. The cameras will be worn on the outside of the officers’ uniforms next to an ID tag stating they’re wearing a camera and will only be turned on and the public advised when the officer deems a situation unsafe with the potential for conflict. Wellington City Council Parking Services will also trial wearing cameras in the coming weeks.

Hair ‘razing’ event In a hair ‘razing’ event, a group of brave boys shaved off their long locks for a good cause last week. This year, a group of 11 boys and staff members from Rongotai College took part in Shave for a Cure - Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand's signature fundraising event. Over the past fifteen years, Kiwis have registered, fundraised, organised their shaves and shorn their locks for the cause and this year, Rongotai College students jumped on board. Year 13 students Jarrod Chardet and Luke Furness organised this year’s event. At an end of term assembly held last Friday, those students participating

shaved their heads in front of their peers. Luke, said he came up with the idea to get the school involved in Shave for a Cure months ago. “My hair was really long and I wanted to get it cut and I just thought if I rounded up some friends and we all did it together we could make some money.” Luke, who had shoulder length hair, said his mum, who was a hairdresser, was happy to see it go. “She was very happy to see it go, I have been growing it out for three years.” Jarrod, whose mother was also a hairdresser, said she enjoyed “experimenting” with his chin length hair in the lead up to the shave. “She bleached it so much it was

white, it used to be dirty blonde”. Following the shave, both boys said it was a strange feeling to lose a head of hair. “It feels like I am going to be a lot better at sport now because I won’t get hair in my face,” Jarrod laughed. Through the Shave for a Cure website, Rongotai College raised around $2600 for Leukaemia and Blood Cancer New Zealand. “That’s really impressive considering I was just going to shave my hair,” Luke said.  From left Jarrod Chardet and Luke Furness shaved their heads at a whole school assembly last Friday.

Wahine survivors plan commemorations By Kelly Hennessy COOK STRAIT NEWS INTERN

The 50th anniversary of the Wahine disaster is approaching in 2018, and survivors have formed a charitable trust to commemorate those lost and to pay tribute to those who risked their lives to help. The sinking of Wellington

ferry Wahine on April 10, 1968 is considered New Zealand’s worst modern maritime disaster. Fifty-one people died when the ship sank in Wellington Harbour. Survivors have now launched a website, dedicated to connecting survivors, rescuers, and anyone else who has a story to tell about the event and have

announced developing plans for Wahine-50 Years On commemoration events. They also pledged their support towards Coastguard Wellington and Coastguard Mana in fundraising for new coastguard rescue boats. Coastguard Wellington was formed in response to the Wahine disaster. “Our strongest driving force is the need to remember those who lost their lives, to commemorate the event, and to reconnect with survivors, or families of survivors, and particularly rescuers,” said Rob Ewan, a trustee and survivor. He and his wife, Muriel Ewan, were on the Wahine with his brother and parents, taking his parents to catch a ship to the UK for a holiday. The couple are thankful to all the people who worked to both save and comfort those aboard the ferry. “A lot of Wellington people who had boats went out on their boats to help with the rescue. “They did a brilliant job on the rescue operation, with very

little time to prepare. They got over 730 people all off the boat in under 30 minutes,” Rob said. Muriel recalls those who provided support after the initial rescue as well, when they were taken to a hall in Eastbourne. “It was the most wonderful sight, with people who had in a very short time equipped this hall with absolutely everything someone who had just been pulled out of the sea could want: clean, dry clothes, food, and drinks. “Lots of people sat around talking to those who had just come out, talking through the ordeal.” The trust wants to ensure the 50th anniversary of the sinking of the Wahine commemorates those who lost their lives, allows for a reunion of survivors, and thanks those rescuers who put themselves at risk that day. “We want to commemorate the day so that it is not forgotten, and looking ahead, we want to leave an enduring legacy by raising the funds to support the local coastguard,” Rob said.

Sixth generation Wellingtonian runs for Mayor By Sharnahea Wilson

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 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

transport prices. “I will advocate for shared transport authority with the Greater Wellington Regional Council, we need to run our own buses.” Ms Young said Wellington rates are becoming unaffordable and she will aim to reduce them by cutting council expenditure. “There is a lot of waste at the council with sham consultations. 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.”

The Island Bay Residents’ Association held its most recent meeting on Monday evening at the Island Bay Bowling Club. Acting spokesman for the residents association, Warren Hall, said around 40 people attended and noted meetings continued to be well attended. At Monday’s meeting, a spokesman for Wellington Regional Emergency Management Office spoke to residents about upcoming ‘Disaster Response Plan’ workshops. “They are planned for Island Bay, Owhiro Bay and Houghton Bay all combined. It’s about putting a plan in place for helping each other after earthquakes and looking at how we can

strengthen and build resilience. “We are planning to be completely engaged in these meetings because it’s an excellent idea.” The Island Bay cycleway was also discussed at Monday’s meeting. Warren said there had been wide support and acknowledgment from the council and councillors that the consultation process had fallen flat. “We are now working with some councillors on a notice of motion. We are asking for the council to develop at least three alternative designs for a cycleway from Shorland Park to Dee St that has vehicle parking at the kerbside. It is a work in

progress.” Warren said the association was also asked to consult with councillors and council officers in regards to its animal bylaw and dog policy. He said submissions for the council’s annual plan were also coming up and encouraged locals to have their say. “We encourage people to make a submission or send them to us and we can make them on residents’ behalf.” As well as this the association was working on installing a noticeboard and suggestion box at the Island Bay village. “It’s another way for us to engage with the community,” Warren said.

Porirua Mayor throws hat in the ring By Nikki Papatsoumas

Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett is the latest candidate to announce he will make a bid for the Wellington mayoralty in October’s elections. Last week, Mr Leggett declared he had resigned from the Labour Party and would stand as in independent in the mayoralty race. He joins incumbent Mayor Celia WadeBrown and Wellington City Councillors Justin Lester, who is running under a Labour ticket, Nicola Young and Jo Coughlan. Rumours have been rife Mr Leggett would throw his hat in the ring for several months – however he insisted the decision to run was only made recently after a discussion with his wife. “I decided that I was going to step down as Mayor of Porirua last year. “Wellington can do better and I was invited by quite a broad range of people in Wellington to consider running for the mayoralty there.” Mr Leggett said he believed he could offer Wellington a “fresher, yet experienced leadership”. “Wellington has been stalled at the lights for quite a while… it hasn’t been doing as well as it should. “We need a mayor that can get Wellington going again and encapsulate a vision of all the great things Wellington contains and then drive it forward.” He said if elected, he would look at leveraging on Wellington’s assets. He said he would focus on health, the environment, economic growth and affordability for all

Wellingtonians. Mr Leggett first joined the council table at the age of 19 and spent three terms as a Porirua City Councillor, before being elected Mayor of Porirua in 2010. He said if elected, he hoped to get the council to work around a “shared vision”. “I am experienced in local government… I have demonstrated a passion for Wellington as Mayor of Porirua and I don’t come with the battle scars of Wellington City Council. “It’s about bringing a strong voice for Wellington, and someone who can demonstrate leadership - not play political games.” If elected, Mr Leggett said he would like to see communities across Wellington in control of their own “destiny”. “A solution to the cycleway debate is letting the Island Bay community decide an outcome themselves – that needs to happen in every community in Wellington.”

Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett has announced he will make a bid for the Wellington mayoralty in this year’s local body elections.

City Mission Store project manager Jeremy Neeve at the city based op-shop

New store for mission By Nikki Papatsoumas

Wellington City Mission opened its very first ‘City Mission Store’ to the public this week. The City Mission store, located on the corner of Taranaki St and Abel Smith St, opened to swarms of people on Monday. The store is a second-hand shop with a real difference – making sure to sell high-quality goods at prices that are truly affordable. The store stocks a range of items including clothes, furniture, linen, bedding, household items and entertainment items such as DVDs, CDs, games and books. All proceeds from the store will ensure the mission’s vital programmes and services are available for people in Greater Wellington when they need help. City Mission Store project manager Jeremy Neeve has been driving the project. He said on Monday more than 100 people browsed through the op-shop within the first hour of the store opening its doors. He said the store’s central city location was chosen because of its visibility. “We had been keeping an eye on this shop and once a decision was made at

N e E n P a O L s W w NO he C n i

board level we went for it.” Jeremy has spent the last couple of months collecting donated high-quality used items to sell in the store. “We have a lot of corporates who are really generous to the mission. We delivered bags and they took them home and filled them for us. “It has been so well accepted as a concept by the corporate market, they have been really supportive and been donating really good stuff which is great.” The Wellington City Mission has a long history of finding new homes for items too good to throw away – beginning with jumble sales in the early 1900s. Until the 1980s, the mission even had a second-hand shop inside their iconic old building on Taranaki Street.  The City Mission store will be open six days a week, from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and 10am to 3pm Saturday. Donated items can be dropped off during these opening hours, or can be collected from homes and workplaces. Right now the store is looking for quality donated goods, and volunteers. If anyone is interested they can call 0800 245 542, email, or visit

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.

“Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives; You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehemets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are at peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.”

Our nuclear free city Dear Ed, Yes, after reading Richard Keller's letter (CSN Apr 14), your readers should all feel greatly comforted to be reassured Wellington is a nuclear-free city, by a larger sign telling us so. It all reminds me of a tea break conversation at our ‘consumer’ office, over 30 years ago, as we discussed the possibility of atomic bombs destroying Wellington. The Middle East situation was making us anxious just then; and the borough of Eastbourne had recently

Shane Chalk Kilbirnie “Remembering family members that have fought for us in the war and trying to keep those memories alive.”

Plunket Rooms declared itself nuclear-free. An Irish-born man said, with Irish wit and cynicism, “Well, when hostilities begin, I'll move around to Eastbourne: it's nuclear-free." So now, we can all feel much safer, having been reminded of all this. In fact, it might make us even safer from destruction if we also declared Wellington an earthquake-free city, don't you think? Hector Westfold Miramar

Dear Ed, Whatever could have happened in the process of weighing babies and advising and helping their mothers that the Island Bay Plunket rooms are now unsuitable for Plunket's work? I see there is talk of a relocation of both Brooklyn and Island Bay Plunket nurses and a Rongotai Plunket family. This sounds very ominous. Any relocation away from Island Bay means mothers are going to have to

travel to get to the rooms. How? By car? By bus? Don't forget Island Bay has recently been deprived of two bus stops and some mothers are already seriously inconvenienced by this. Surely this move will disadvantage the very people Plunket is supposed to help, mothers and babies? Irene Fagan Island Bay

Nicholas Ombler-Urey is introduced to one of Kilmarnock Heights Home’s rabbits by clinical nurse manager Anna Roberts.

Berhampore kids and elders join forces A rest home with spark Kilmarnock Heights Home An elder-centred community Kilmarnock Heights Home is special; it’s more than just a rest home. 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 and meaningful activity into the lives of elders. Family and friends Kilmarnock Heights Home 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 Kilmarnock Heights Home with them. The social life At Kilmarnock Heights Home 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.

True connections are being formed between the elders of Enliven’s Kilmarnock Heights Home and the children of PORSE in-home childcare. A large group of twenty PORSE children and their caregivers visited the rest home recently and plan to be back for at least three more visits throughout the year. Kilmarnock Heights Home clinical nurse manager Anna Roberts says children are an integral part of daily life at the home and the home’s model of care, the Eden Alternative, recognises that. “The children bring their unique personalities, smiles and their laughter to the home,” says Anna. She says Kilmarnock Heights Home is a child-friendly environment, and both the children and elders enjoy interacting with each other and with the home’s many animal companions. “There was certainly a lot of energy in the room during visit. There was singing, dancing and laughter all round,” says Anna. PORSE programme tutor Suzanne Archer

says the aim of the visits is to build a strong partnership between PORSE and Kilmarnock Heights Home and to provide the children with an opportunity to develop relationships with elders in their community. “We knew that Kilmarnock Heights Home has animals, is a safe environment and welcomes children, so we organised the visits from there and we have three more this year.” Suzanne says bonds are already beginning to form between the children and the residents. “Some of these children don’t have grandparents around and it’s great for them to have that contact. It’s creating true connections.”  Kilmarnock Heights Home is operated by Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, and provides rest home care, respite and a popular day activity programme from its location at 20 Morton Street in Berhampore, Wellington.

Beggars in Wellington Dear Ed, I am not sure what planet David Lewis of Brooklyn is from, but he is clearly mistaken if he believes that if anyone wants to work they can work. Not only does this country have an official jobless rate of 6 per cent,


there are barriers to employment for someone with no qualifications, poor literacy, health problems and a criminal record. Noel Ellis Mt Cook

Forgotten suburb Dear Ed, For years I have been asking the Wellington City Council for two things for the Newtown Shopping area. It is one of, if not the biggest suburban shopping area, within the Wellington immediate area, yet we only have two very dangerous disability car parks, on Normanby St and Newtown Ave. There is another near the library, but nothing on the street or even visually signposted for the banks and post office area, nor is there one handy to the laboratory. Yet those Riddiford St car parks outside the southern end of the Hospital would be able to have a disability park. We also need a safe crossing to the shopping mall from the other side of the road - St Thomas to St Vincent’s. There is nothing safe for


children to cross from the mall to go up towards their school in Russell Tce. It is a very busy street, and even though the speed limit is 40km/h few cars actually keep to that speed south of Constable St, or as they come off Russell Tce. Kilbirnie is a relatively small shopping area yet is in-dated with disability car parks, having had a new one put outside the Westpac Bank, and they are lucky enough to have one now near the laboratory that is if it is not being used by a non- disabled permit holder. I am also going to ask council that all disability parks are at all times. Why should the disabled be limited in what times they can go out? Heather Bevan Island Bay

Wellington set to be smokefree

Sam Manzanza and Afro Beat Band will perform at this year’s Africa Day event, which will take place next month.

Africa Day celebrations in the capital Locals are invited to celebrate the sights, sounds and tastes of Africa next month. The African Communities Council Wellington will celebrate Africa Day on May 14 at Queens Wharf. Africa Day is the annual commemoration of the 1963 founding of the Organisation of African Unity. The day has been celebrated globally for 53 years, with many African nationals living worldwide. The theme of this year’s celebrations will be African Year of Human Rights, with a particular focus on the rights of women. The theme will be carried out

through all Africa Day celebrations across the country. In Wellington, celebrations have been running for the past three years and are considered to be the African Communities Council Wellington’s annual flagship event. In the past, more than 3500 have flocked to Wellington’s Waterfront to enjoy Africa Day celebrations. Organiser Sam Manzanza said this year organisers were expecting more than 4000 locals to attend and enjoy some of the food, arts and crafts, fashion, dance and live music on offer. Those performing for this year’s event included the south

Sudanese dance group, Ghanaian Wellington group, Spitfire and Myele Manzanza and Ras Judah and Culture Embassy. He said the celebrations were a way of bringing New Zealanders of African descent together to celebrate a significant day that was widely recognised by Africans. Sam said it also allowed those of African descent to share and educate fellow Kiwis on their culture and heritage, while building camaraderie.  Africa Day 2016 celebrations will be held on Saturday, May 14 at Shed 6 on Queens Wharf, from midday to 7pm.

The Wellington City Council is aiming to make Wellington smokefree – the first smokefree capital in the world. At last week’s meeting of the council’s community, sport and recreation committee, councillors agreed to make the city smokefree, by reducing the prevalence of smoking to less than five per cent by 2025. The committee, chaired by councillor Paul Eagle, 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 Civic Square, bus stops, the Botanical Gardens, Waitangi Park, council housing, council operated community centres, pools, recreation centres, building entrances, and designated council laneways. Less than 10 per cent of Wellington residents currently smoke – the lowest rate in New Zealand.

Mr Eagle said he supported the extension of smokefree areas across the capital. “We need to take this seriously as the capital city and ensure we do everything we can to make Wellington smokefree by 2025. “It’s not just the smokers’ lives that are of concern. Smoking has a huge impact on wider communities and especially that of Maori and Pacific communities, where smoking rates are still as high as 33 per cent. “It’s great for the Council to work with health promoters and do our bit to end smoking in New Zealand,” he said. An opinion survey conducted last year by the council indicated overwhelming public support for smokefree playgrounds and sports parks, and for extending Wellington’s smokefree areas. At last week’s meeting councillors also agreed to look at the feasibility of a bylaw against the littering of cigarette butts.

Wellington Zoo celebrates birthday Wellington Zoo turns 110 years old this week. Wellington Zoo was New Zealand’s first zoo when it was established on April 21, 1906. To celebrate, zoo staff will be giving free entry to the 110th visitor who comes through the zoo’s front doors every day for the next year. Big celebrations are also planned for the summer holidays later this year. Wellington

Zoo’s chief executive, Karen Fifield said staff wanted the community to join in celebrations. “Wellington Zoo is leading the way in helping visitors build emotional connections with animals and helping people understand the roles we can all play to care for environment we share. Our focus is about working together to save animals in the wild.”

Most people have them removed for one of these reasons: • They are impacted. Because they’re so far back in your mouth, wisdom teeth may not come in normally. They can be trapped in your jawbone or gums, which can be painful. • They come in at a wrong angle. They may press against your other teeth. • Your mouth isn’t big enough. Your jaw has no room for an extra set of molars. • You have cavities or gum disease. You may not be able to reach your wisdom teeth with your toothbrush or dental floss. If your wisdom teeth need removing, you can get it done at your dentist and if the case is complex, your dentist may refer you to an oral surgeon. Normally the dentist will give you local anesthesia which it numbs your mouth. If you wish to consider sedation, you can discuss

with your dentist which option is best for you. The options are available are oral sedation, IV sedation and General. Please note, not all practices have some or any of these sedation options. Removal of wisdom teeth can cause some discomfort after the surgery. There are some procedure (ie. Surgical removal of extraction) causes more discomfort than a straightforward procedure. It is always advisable to discuss with your dentist what to expect during and after the procedure. If you have a wisdom teeth concern, contact your dentist for an initial consultation. You can discuss the option that is best for you. Please note: Material provided by Newtown Dental Surgery in this article is provided for educational purposes only.

Team takes top spot

By Nikki Papatsoumas

A Rongotai College junior sports team have claimed the national title for 3x3 basketball. Earlier this month Rongotai College’s junior and senior 3x3 basketball teams travelled to Auckland to compete in the New Zealand Secondary School National Championships. The school’s junior team took out the tournament, after coming away undefeated, beating Auckland’s Rosmini College in the final. The teams were the only competitors from Wellington to compete in the competition. 3x3 Basketball is played on a half court and instead of the usual five players, only three players compete. The points

system is also different to conventional basketball. Captain Ezrah Vaigafa, who also plays for the U16 New Zealand Basketball team, said his team did not expect to fare well in the tournament as they were up against some tough competition. “We just wanted to go hard and show who Rongotai was and bring our name up. From there we started rebuilding and increasing our points and playing well as a team. “When the whistle blew in the final game and we looked at the score board and realised we won, we were just overwhelmed,” he said. The teams coach, Rongotai old boy and former Tall Black, Chris Tupu said he was proud of the

boys’ efforts. He said the boys had the right attitudes and described them as “champion kids” who played at a level of excellence. “They are good at playing big in the big moments… they seem to have a bond between them and they’ve all got down to earth attitudes. “It’s all about the team for us and that is what we have tried to instil with our junior players.” Chris said his goal was to see one the boys play professionally and he believed the young players had the potential. “I would love to get another guys singlet next to mine, it’s one of my goals to get some more guys to play for New Zealand and I am excited about the potential we have got.”

Free classes for world Tai Chi Day World Tai Chi Day is coming up on April 30 and Enliven are offering sessions free of charge to the community to celebrate. Enliven Community support general manager Bronwyn Williams said Enliven’s modified Tai Chi classes were particularly beneficial for older people because studies showed that it was very good for improving balance and flexibility, circulation and heart health with regular attendance. Enliven Tai Chi participant Ann Greenwood said Tai Chi has helped restore her balance and reduced 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 $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 to 29 and are free for people in the community who have never tried Enliven’s modified Tai Chi before. All are welcome to attend.  Free classes will be held at the Island Bay Community Centre, on Tuesday, April 26 from 11am to 12pm.

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

No ban against begging Begging will not be banned in Wellington, the council has decided. Last Wednesday, the council’s community, sport and recreation committee, considered a report on begging and various suggestions on how to deal with the problem. At the meeting the committee voted strongly – by 12 votes to two – against a ban on begging. The council instead called on the Government to acknowledge it has a key responsibility to deal with the social and economic problems contributing to the growing scourge of begging in Wellington and other cities. Mayor of Wellington, Celia WadeBrown, said a ban on begging would not have worked. “Begging is not a criminal activity and a ban, if enforced, could push desperate people into criminal activity.” Ms Wade-Brown said she and committee chair councillor Paul Eagle would now seek an initial meeting with members of the Cabinet who have direct responsibility for the agencies that deal with the issues behind begging, like unemployment, mental

health and prisoner rehabilitation “Central government also needs to step up and help deal with begging – it is a national issue,” she said. 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 today added “disturbing insight” into the level of the begging problem. Councillors were told about beggars being ‘taxed’ by criminals in the CBD, and about harassment of shoppers by beggars in Newtown. “We’ve got a visible problem out there – the council is working to coordinate multi-agency responses to begging – but the government has a moral obligation to come to the party with a serious, nationally-focused, response,” Mr Eagle said.  Do you think there is a problem with begging in Wellington?
