Not in our neighbourhood By Emma McAuliffe

A new liquor store is set to open on the Strand and some members of the community are not happy about it. After the news broke last Tuesday that a new liquor store was set to open, residents took to Facebook to complain about the decision calling the idea “stupid”, “ridiculous” and the “last thing Wainuiomata needs”. On Thursday morning around 30-40 people from organisations in the area had a meeting to discuss their options surrounding the issue. Wainuiomata Pharmacy co-owner Evan Choie said many business owners were disappointed in the decision. “Obviously we’re all opposing the new bottle store. We don’t need another bottle store. It could cause more problems for the Strand. Would this fuel the problem? It’s a huge concern for everyone.” Bottle-O store owner Hayden Wilby, acknowledged his viewpoint was biased due to being in direct competition with the potential new store but nonetheless had his reservations. “I think we’re over saturated with bottle stores. The margin is already tight. Eventually it’s going to put someone out of business.” Hutt South MP, Trevor Mallard, said it was a question of having too many

bottle stores already. He said there would be a public meeting on May 9 to discuss the issue further. Hutt City Councillors for the Wainuiomata Ward also expressed concern. Councillor Campbell Barry said he thought there were already too many bottle stores in the valley and questioned the location of a potential new store. “The location is questionable because there’s a medical centre across the road, a chemist next door, two churches across the road and a quite new playground there as well.” However, he said the any new business owner had a right to open a new store without attacks from the community. “[They’re] entitled to put an application in. [The community needs to] respect this person is allowed to apply.” Residents are able to have their say on whether they think there should be another bottle store in the community by making direct submissions to the district licensing committee. Trevor Mallard’s office on Queen Street has templates for submissions currently available. Submissions must be received by early May.

Mall revamp plans again By Emma McAuliffe

The Wainuiomata Warehouse may be set to close in February following a staff meeting last week. Following the rumours the Oyster Group, who manage the mall on behalf of the owner, announced their plans for redeveloping the entire Shopping Centre in 2017. A spokesperson for the

Centre said the owners were “confident the redeveloped centre will provide a better trading environment for all tenants, including The Warehouse, and is positive the redevelopment work will enable The Warehouse to revisit its current decision to close.” Hutt City Councillor, Campbell Barry, said while this was promising, Wainuiomata had been let down


by promises for redevelopment before. “I won’t be convinced until it’s a done deal,” he said. Hutt South MP, Trevor Mallard said he was “forever hopeful” in redevelopment plans. “But I want to see builders on site before I accept that it’s going to happen.” Oyster Group development manager, Richard Taffe, said the group was close to

Submissions for bottle store

securing an agreement with the existing anchor stores which will be followed by a requirement to get a minor variation to the existing resource consent and the required building consents. “Once these are in place the owners are confident that redevelopment works can commence,” he said. The Warehouse group was approached for comment but did not respond.

Submissions to the DLC about the potential new bottle store are open for another week. Residents can make a submission if they have a ‘greater interest’ in the area. Trevor Mallard’s office outside the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre is providing template letters to make submissions to the committee. To find out more contact Keri Brown on 564 4988 or email:

Meka’s trip over the hill Wainuiomata had a visit from a special member of parliament last week. Meka Whaitiri, Ikaroa-Rawhiti MP, visited Wainuiomata last Tuesday as part of her time in Lower Hutt. The Ikaroa-Rawhiti electorate extends from the East Cape of the North Island to the Wellington region, and it includes Gisborne, Hawkes Bay and the Wairarapa, as well as most of the Hutt Valley and Wainuiomata. As part of Ms. Whaitiri’s trip she had breakfast with the community

centre whanau to kick start their holiday programme. She then helped prepare and distribute ‘Whanau in Arms’ kai boxes to Whanau. Following the breakfast she visited the Upoko A Urunga Te Kohanga Reo in Wood Street and the Kokiri Marae holiday programme. Her visit finished with a meeting with Ash Hauwaho, Police Iwi Liaison Officer for Lower Hutt, in the afternoon.

Kids take part in a fun animal quiz

Kids astounded at holiday scavenger hunt By Emma McAuliffe

Kids had the chance to scavenge for clues about the natural world at the Wainuiomata Community Library last Thursday. Around a dozen children turned up to “be astounded” at the library and learnt about different animals as part of the free event. The event started with a story time

before moving on to a quiz, a jigsaw, a guess who and then the scavenger hunt. The librarians said it gave the children the chance to learn about animals and the natural world. Children and Teens Librarian Alexia Herrera said the event was one of a few the library was hosting these school holidays as part of their “Be Astounded” programme.

Queen visits the stroke club

Volunteers sought for youth By Emma McAuliffe

YOUth Inspire are looking for volunteers as they move forward with plans in 2016. The organisation is based at the Wainuiomata Library and works to support young people who are struggling to find work or tertiary education during their high school years and beyond. Manager Bronson Wharehinga said the organisation provides support and connections and helps young people help themselves.

Bronson said the organisation had a few plans going forward to engage with the community and said the whole community could benefit from young people gaining work and feeling confident with themselves. “It’s way bigger than getting this person a job,” he said. New youth pathways coordinator Awhina Valiama agreed and added, “it’s bigger than the individual”. “We want them to add value to their community. They’re our

The Wainuiomata Stroke Club had a royal surprise during their celebrations for the Queen’s birthday last Thursday. The Queen herself made an appearance during their high tea birthday party to dine with the “commoners”. Queen Elizabeth, sometimes known better as Hutt City Councillor Margaret Willard, said the birthday celebrations in Wainuiomata were wonderful and she was very lucky to be able to spend her 90th with the Stroke Club.

future,” she said. They said they needed volunteers to help engage with the community at events and plans going forward. These events include Whanau days and weekly catch ups in the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre. Bronson said this was to ensure there would be “an entire network” supporting youth finding their future. Awhina and Bronson said anyone who wanted to volunteer could do so by visiting them at their office in the library.

Deadline approaching on proposed Annual Plan 2016-17 The clock is ticking for Lower Hutt residents to have their say on Hutt City Council’s proposed Annual Plan 2016-17. Submissions close at 5pm on Friday April 29. The proposed Annual Plan includes a proposed average rates increase of 2.7 per cent, expected to be one of the lowest in the region. To date 565 submissions have been received but Mayor Ray Wallace said Council is keen for more by the April 29 deadline.

“Residents’ views are essential in shaping the Annual Plan as it will have a significant impact on the future of our city”, he said. “Lower Hutt is a great place to live, work and play and we are committed to making it even better. To ensure we are meeting our communities’ aspirations and dealing with any issues we need to know what people think. The Annual Plan submission process is an important way to do this.” The consultation document

“It is so nice to be here in Wainuiomata. It’s good to see all the voluntary work that goes on here. It is very good.” Members of the stroke club celebrated the Queen’s 90th birthday with their finest china and hats and reminisced about of the real Queen Elizabeth II’s past visits to New Zealand. Secretary of the Stroke Club Noeline Colman said the day had been “lovely” and the group had Gabriel Tupou in to sing for them earlier in the afternoon. “It’s been so lovely. People have been telling stories all day,” she said.

The Queen does not require a passport to travel or a licence to drive. Queen Elizabeth II collected rations during WWII to pay for her wedding dress. She has owned over 30 corgis. Her first dog was named Susan.

Mayor Ray Wallace and Taizhou Deputy Mayor Mr. He Rong signed the agreement on Thursday 21 April. Mr Wallace said, "Taizhou have been good friends of Hutt City for over a decade now and we're excited to have made this connection with local businesses and start-ups, giving them the opportunity to explore global markets.

The Hutt Valley could become a ‘Technology Valley’ if the community gets on board with an upcoming public meeting. National List MP Chris Bishop is hoping to raise the profile of technology in the Hutt Valley with a public meeting next month. Mr Bishop said he had been a big supporter of technology growing businesses in Lower Hutt since his election in 2014. “Lower Hutt is a bit of a hidden secret. The aim of the public meeting is about raising the profile. It’s all about valley jobs and growth,” he said. He said Lower Hutt had a range of high tech businesses few people knew about- including Callahan Innovations just over the hill in Gracefield. Mr Bishop said he would encourage anyone to attend his meeting and he hoped to get at least two speakers from the technology industry to be there. “We’d like to get some ideas from the community on what they think Technology Valley should look like,” he said. The meeting will take place at the Mind Lab in Petone which is only the second of its kind in

Petone Anzac Day By Julie Iles, Massey Journalism Student

The Lower Hutt Memorial RSA hosted their annual breakfast at the Petone Club on Anzac Day where people came in for a bit of rum in their coffee and some food between services. Over five hundred people attended the breakfast, waiting in a long line to get their hands on hash browns and bacon, following dawn services. Lower Hutt Memorial RSA President, Alison Sexton said, "There weren't as many at dawn parade as last year, but it was still great attendance." Major General Anthony George remembered growing up spending Anzac day in Dunedin with his father, a veteran of the Second World War. “My son wears his grandfather’s medals today. They’re pretty standard issue for the Second World War… and like a typical serviceman these

were just thrown in an old cigar box,” George said. The medals are mounted stiffly in ‘court style’- George had them put together at the National Army Museum in Waiouru. After breakfast, many guests headed out to the Petone Railway Station to see the recently restored steam train, Passchendaele AB 608 on its way to Wellington. The Petone Station was the site of the first Anzac commemorations held on April 25, 1916, and hosted by the Petone and Hornsby Railway workshops in honour of the fallen railway men that were killed in the First World War. A hundred years later, services for Anzac day are still held at this historic site. Services speaker David Gordon said it was just great to see such a turn out from people around the Hutt Valley. Several blows of the whistle later, and a billow of grey smoke, Passchendaele’s side rods began to turn

its wheels and the train began to leave the station. Decorated members of the armed forces walked about the train platform, their medals catching the light. Some older veterans wore their medals ‘swing style’, pinned freely to their uniforms. Major General George said, “I’ll always remember when soldiers were marching you could hear the medals, jangling as they marched down the street.” Over one third of New Zealand veterans alive today are pre-Vietnam war heroes. With a new generation of veterans coming through, Mr George said he expected Anzac commemorations to start reflecting on more modern campaigns. “The next focus I’m sure will be the Second World War and we’re rapidly running out of those veterans,” said Mr George, though their medals may be uncovered in cigar boxes for years to come.

Earth Day celebrations at the park By Emma McAuliffe

The crowd begins their walk to Catchpool valley

A very special Earth Day took place at the Rimutaka Forest Park last Friday morning. Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 every year to take action on important issues like climate change and take time to do good for the environment. On Friday, the American Embassy visited the park for the second time to celebrate the nature and experiences the park had to offer. Around 30 people turned up on the day to plant trees in the Catchpool Valley and take part in pest trapping.

The day was extra special for the American Embassy as it tied in with the United States celebrating 100 years of National Park Services. Member of the Rimutaka Forest Park Trust, Peter Cooper, in his welcoming speech said it was “wonderful” to see everyone. “We’ve got a smorgasbord of the natural world on offer today,” he said. Hutt City Councillor, Margaret Willard attended the event and thanked the Trust for all of their hard work over the years in maintaining “Lower Hutt’s top tourist destination”.

Earth Day Facts:  The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970 in the US.  There have been celebrations across the globe since 1990.  It is estimated 1 billion people would take part in Earth Day in 2016.

Over a hundred people were granted New Zealand citizenship at a special ceremony in Lower Hutt last week. The ceremony for the 153 new citizens to Lower Hutt took place at Hutt City Church. Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace, who officiated at the ceremony, said the new citizens had come from 31 different countries. He said Lower Hutt had always embraced its multiculturalism. “We very much encourage you to take part in the life at Lower Hutt. We’re all enriched by your presence here,” he said. He said he commended everyone for wanting to become New Zealanders and the new citizens were “extremely intelligent” for choosing to reside in the suburbs around Hutt City. Wainuiomata resident, Gabriel Tupou, sang the National Anthem following the ceremony.

National tournament for Wainui lad By Emma McAuliffe

Awatea Randall has made the national team for underwater hockey

A young Wainuiomata resident will be taking on the National stage in underwater hockey this year. Awatea Randall has been selected to play in the New Zealand Under 18 national underwater hockey team. The HIBS student said he found out a fortnight ago he made the team after three tough trials in Auckland and Wellington. Awatea, 16, said he had been playing underwater hockey for five years and he was excited to have made the national team. “It feels really good knowing all my hard work has paid off,” he said. He said he played for his school team and the Wellington team as well as the national team.

Awatea said there were six boys selected for the national team from Wellington. He said his interest in underwater hockey came from his history of free diving off the Coast Road beach with his dad. “I’m a free diver. We all free dive off the coast so the interest came from there.” He said he currently trained four days a week on top of trainings and games he plays for his clubs. Awatea said the first tournament would be a trans-Tasman tournament in Hobart in a few months’ time and his next task would be to fundraise for it. His mother, Hannah, said she was very proud of what her son had achieved. “He’s sacrificed lots of time.

He’s made that commitment and he’s just stuck at it which has been great.”

Under Water Hockey Facts The British Navy invented underwater hockey in the 1950's to keep their divers fit and to improve their ability to move and work efficiently under water.  Similar to regular hockey, Under water Hockey involves getting a puck to the goal using a “pusher”, its main difference lies in the game being played under water.

Rugby wins for Wainui By Emma McAuliffe

Wainuiomata Rugby had a few successful games over the long weekend. On Saturday afternoon the Wainuiomata Premier Rugby team battled Petone for the Darren Larsen Cup as part of the Swindale Shield. Petone did not benefit from playing on their home ground as Wainuiomata won 33-27. After six rounds the Wainuiomata premier team stands third on their table. Their next game will take place on Wednesday against Avalon at the Hutt Recreation grounds. Wainuiomata Women’s conquered Poneke earlier in the morning with a final score of 81-0. The win has the team placing third on the Fleurs Trophy table. Their next game will take place on Friday night against Hutt Old Boys Marist at Fraser Park Artificial. Other games over the weekend did not turn out so well. The Reserves played Petone and lost 21-19. The 85’s played a close game against Upper Hutt on Saturday and lost 12-13. The Colts played Johnsonville at William Jones park and lost 22-29.

Volunteer rewarded By Emma McAuliffe

One of Wainuiomata High School’s best loved volunteers was rewarded for all her hard efforts last week. Moana Kuma was nominated by Wainuiomata High School’s Sport Coordinator, Peter Cowan, to receive the award from Sport Wellington for the hard work and time she dedicated to various sports at the school including rugby and netball. Moana was awarded a $2000 voucher to spend on sports gear by Lotto and Sport Wellington as part of their monthly Local Sport Makers initiative. She was surprised with a makeshift ceremony at the pre-season tournament for Lower Hutt high

school rugby teams. The award was given following the Wainuiomata First XV’s win against HIBS, 17-12. Presenter of the award was volunteer strategy senior advisor for Sport Wellington, Ken Allen, who told the group “sport would be lost without people like [Moana]”. She said the award was “unexpected”. “It’s great. So unexpected. It’s really humbling. Thanks so much guys,” she said. Peter was also given a certificate for nominating her and the team was given a pack of goodies. Moana Kuma poses with the Wainuiomata High School 1st XV

Sports Hub Update

Kobe and Curry throw out scripts The NBA showed why sport is so magical. On one day, Kobe Bryant bows out after 20 years as the leading man of the Los Angeles Lakers with a magical 60-point curtain call. Just down the road, the Golden State Warriors broke a single season winning record many thought would never be beaten. The Warriors beat the Memphis Grizzlies at home to finish a regular season with a 73 win, nine loss record, beating the 1995/96 Chicago Bulls 72-10 season. Both games were played at the same time so I had to multitask as best a man can to keep up though I was initially more interested in the Warriors pursuit of history than Kobe’s farewell. That was until Kobe got the hot hand as they say in basketball. Kobe’s Lakers had been awful this year - a stark contrast from their rich, successful history.

The 37-year-old turned back the clock at the Staples Center, surrounded by A-list celebrities like Jack Nicholson and David Beckam and former team mates like Shaquille O ‘Neal. A more fitting ending could not have been written by Hollywood writers just down the street. The chance to see Kobe has come and gone but if you’re a casual basketball watcher, make an effort to see Golden State in the playoffs. Their leading light Steph Curry is the first man to make 400 three-pointers in a regular season. The feat is even more impressive considering no man before Curry had ever made 300 before the season. Just for a little bit of life symmetry - The Golden State coach, Steve Kerr was a key player for the Bulls in the 1995/96 season that his team has now eclipsed. You can’t write this stuff.

Next Steps

What's happened thus far Feasibility study is complete

Global leisure Group have completed our full feasibility study on the types of facilities, the location and recommended approach. the outcomes are: - One new clubrooms and social space able to accommodate 300 people divided by fold away operable walls, various other spaces. - Location on Frederick Wise Park. - Number one fields, greens courts on Frederick Wise surround the facility. - Enclosed and open artificial turf space. - Outdoor synthetic bowls green.

The plan explained WHAT IT WILL BRING - A modern new facility will mean shared use more community and family friendly environments and a hive of activity for sport. Key playing spaces will be close by, more people watching the play. we are now finalising the concept plan, meeting with stakeholders and becoming clear about funding processes, planning and time lines. there will be sharing of social space across a greater number of sports but still space set aside for each clubs prize giving. WHAT WILL IT COST - the total project cost initially is $6 million

dollars and to achieve this as part of our deal with the Hutt City Council we need to show that some clubrooms will be retired and land released.

Come back to your club committees with an implementation plan showing how we transition the clubs, explaining changes nothing will change until facilities are built and there are new facilities to go to. Submit the proposal to Hutt City Council annual planning process.

The Benefits

The are many benefits with Sportsvilles/hubs. - Clubs will have new facilities and two organisations focused on maintaining and developing them (The Community Funding Trust set up by Hutt City Council and Wainuiomata Sportsville Inc) this will allow each club to focus on their sport, programmes for example. - New facilities will focus on training spaces, new surfaces and better quality fields. Where things are new number always increase.

Ask all the questions you need to ask, fully understand what the Wainuiomata Sportsville Inc/Sports Hub will bring to Wainuiomata and get behind the initiative. Have the conversations with other club members, we appreciate there are some big changes ahead and some people don't like change. Consider the following comments: 1. With this proposal we are looking to our Sporting future. 2. Your Club boards are clearly saying that a new model is needed and facilities as well to be sustainable. 3. We need to do more for our young people.
