Last week the Crofton Downs School community came together to celebrate being one step closer to re-opening their hall. The goal to re-open the community hall passed a major milestone on Thursday, June 2 when the school received a $50,000 cheque from Transpower. In 2014 an engineering assessment classified the structure as an ‘earthquake prone building’ and the hall has been closed for the last two years. The cheque took the school and the surrounding community one step closer to the earthquake strengthening work needed to re-open the building. Continued on page 2 Guy Curry Stanton, 10, Elliot Browne, 10, and Maya Koning, 10, stand by the hall with a $50,000 cheque.

Karori residents we invited to celebrate the installation of a commemorative street sign at Beatty Avenue. Beatty Avenue is one of the city’s many streets named after people or events of World War I. This street in particular was named in honour of Admiral David Beatty who commanded the Royal Navy Battlecruiser fleet at the Battle of Jutland from May 31 to June 1, 1916. Onslow-Western Ward Councillor Andy Foster was stunned by the turnout to the event on a cold winter’s evening. “I was really, really impressed that on a horrendous night we had 35-40 people come out – umbrellas and all.”

He had made a quick plan B arrangement and led everyone into the Helen Lowry Hall. The residents also recognised Jack Cornwell, a crewmember of the HMS Chester – a cruiser in Admiral Beatty’s fleet. Jack Cornwell was fatally wounded during the battle and later posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross, as the youngest ever naval recipient. An enthusiastic Boy Scout before joining up, Lord BadenPowell created the Cornwell Scout Badge for bravery in his honour. There was a Cornwell Street in Wellington named for Jack but it is now a railway line into Centreport, so the residents com-

School Principal Toby Stokes talked about how the hall had always been a community facility. “It has been here since 1991.” “It’s called Sakura Hall which means blossom in Japanese.” He explained how the hall was jointly funded by the Crofton Downs and Japanese Communities and was then gifted to the school. The cheque, combined with other community grants and allocations received, amounts to 90 per cent of the estimated $455,000 required to return the hall to acceptable strength. Chair of the school Board of Trustees Robyn McInnes said after generous grants this was the first time the school was reaching out to the community

Queen’s Birthday Honours

2016 By Sharnahea Wilson

Justice Ellen France The Honourable Justice Ellen France of Kelburn was appointed a Dame Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to the judiciary. “When I was at school I got guidance leaflets, and I read one that said if you were interested in English, law was the career for you – so I did a law degree,” Justice France put it simply. Going into the degree, Justice France did not have a great deal of knowledge about what it would involve, which meant she also

did not have a great deal of expectation. “I found I really enjoyed it,” she said. Justice France commenced legal practice in Auckland in 1981 before taking up a role as senior legal advisor in the Department of Justice Law Reform Division. In 1992 she joined the Crown Law Office as Crown Counsel and became a Team Leader and subsequently Deputy Solicitor General (Public Law) in 1998. “My time at the Crown Law

Office was very satisfying. I have always been interested in how the government works.” Justice France was appointed a High Court Judge in 2002 and a Judge of the Court of Appeal in 2006. “Being a judge is very varied and interesting work.” Justice France will continue in her work as a Judge of the Court of Appeal and said she is always looking for ways to improve.

Mr Aruna Abeygoonesekera Mr Aruna Abeygoonesekera of Khandallah was appointed a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to New Zealand-Sri Lanka relations and the Sri Lankan Community in this year’s Queen’s Honours. Mr Abeygoonesekera works for the Ministry of Social Development and has held financial and strategic roles in that sector for almost 20 years. Mr Abeygoonesekera supported the affairs of the Sri Lankan community as a committee member and as President of the New Zealand Sri Lanka Friendship

Society in Wellington. Since his appointment as Honorary Consul for Sri Lanka in 2007, he has established good working relationships with government, and assisted in the promotion of trade and economic relations between New Zealand and Sri Lanka. “Sri Lanka and New Zealand are now the closest they have ever been.” Mr Abeygoonesekera has enhanced the diplomatic connection and was instrumental in the recent gifting of an elephant from the Sri Lankan Government to

Auckland Zoo. “This has been one of the proudest moments in my career. It brought about closeness between the two countries,” he said. On top of this Mr Abeygoonesekera has hosted Ministerial delegations from both countries that have resulted in partnerships being formed in the dairy, tea, and education sectors, and established the Sri Lanka New Zealand Business Council in 2010. “I’m very thankful to the New Zealand Government for recognising what I’ve done,” he said.

Mr Ian Paterson Mr Ian Paterson of Te Aro was awarded The Queen’s Service Medal for services to philanthropy in this year’s Queen’s Honours. As an award-winning auctioneer Mr Paterson has helped raise on average $200,000 annually for various charities in New Zealand and overseas for the past 20 years, which have ranged from local schools to large charitable organisations. Mr Paterson has also been involved with the Malaghan Institute since his wife Sally’s sudden death in 2009. “When my wife died of an

aggressive form of brain cancer our family business decided to donate a small portion of every fee we earned to their brain cancer research project in her honour and memory so in the future other people may not go through what we experienced.” After joining the Taihape Rotary Club at the age of 23 Mr Paterson then served as a member of the Rotary Club of Port Nicholson for 24 years. A standout moment for him during his time with Rotary was helping with the Goal Setter awards programme for nearly

20 years. “We have awarded scholarships to some amazing young people who have overcome some incredible hardships to go on and do amazing things.” However Mr Paterson’s biggest achievement to date was establishing Just Paterson Real Estate, in 1990 with his late wife, which is well-recognised and respected in Wellington. Mr Paterson was blown away by the news he would be awarded The Queen’s Service medal. “I never expected my small contribution would be recognised.”

Mr Chris Kelly Mr Chris Kelly of Thorndon was appointed an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to agriculture in the 2016 Queen’s Honours. As current Chair of Beef and Lamb Genetics, director of Crown Irrigation Investment Company and Chancellor of Massey University, Mr Kelly has been a leader in New Zealand’s agricultural sector. After graduating from university with a veterinary degree, Mr Kelly worked with big animals before he moved into the animal health business.

“I came off a farm. I owned a horse when I was young. I have always been interested in the agricultural industry,” he explained. During his role as CEO of Landcorp Farming from 2001 to 2013 Mr Kelly introduced dairy and deer farming to the company and increased revenue to $230 million. During his time as General Manager Corporate Planning and Global Manager Corporate Development with the New Zealand Dairy Board Mr Kelly was involved with or led a number of key initiatives that helped the de-

velopment of the dairy industry. Mr Kelly has become interested in the education sector and said he has continued to be amazed at what tertiary education can do for people. Despite his extensive career, when he heard he would be mentioned in this year’s Queen’s Honours, Mr Kelly was humbled. “In all honesty I’m just one person. One person on their own can’t make a huge difference – it’s about working together,” he said. Mr Kelly said he would be celebrating the news in Melbourne with his family.

Ms Teresa Tepania-Ashton Ms Teresa Tepania-Ashton of Te Aro was appointed a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to Maori and business.

Queen’s Birthday Honours

2016 By Sharnahea Wilson

Dr Peter Martin “People were able to get gum and patches which was very helpful. But there needed to be more general tobacco control efforts,” he said. There is currently $7 million invested in Nicotine Replacement Therapy annually as part of New Zealand’s tobacco control programme. Dr Martin established a pioneering stop smoking clinic at Wellington Hospital in 1985 which provided group-based behavioural support. This achieved high quitting results. “It’s a totally preventable disease,” Dr Martin said. He said New Zealand needed to once again “up our game” in the attempt to stamp out smoking altogether. “I’m hoping plain packaging will come in to force next year. I also want all cars to be smokefree – not just cars with children in them.” The now retired physician was blown away when he received the

news about this year’s Queen’s Honours. “I’m humbled to think my contribution to this is being recognised in this way.”

Under fives swim for free It was announced all children under the age of five will now be able to swim for free at their local council pools. On June 1, Deputy Mayor Justin Lester had his plan for free pool entry for under five-year-olds approved by the Wellington City Council. “I’m over the moon my plan to allow under fives to go the pool for free has been passed,” the mayoral candidate said. “This is a sensible policy that helps

out families with young kids to enjoy our pools for free.” He said the initiative would save families a lot of money over the course of a child’s first five years. “Making our pools free for under fives shows Wellington is an inclusive city.” Although he was happy with the result, Mr Lester said there was still a lot more to do. “As Mayor I would push to extend the policy to allow a parent or guard-

ian to go to the pool for free with their kids too. “Accessible community facilities play an important part in boosting how people live and play in the capital. I’m committed to ensuring cost isn’t a barrier for kids and their parents or guardians to go to the pool,” he said. “Currently seven out of 10 kids in New Zealand cannot swim. Making access to our pools free for kids and their parents can help to turn this around.”

Dr Peter Martin of Te Aro was appointed an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to tobacco control in the 2016 Queen’s Honours. Dr Martin worked at the Wellington Hospital in the 1960s as a respiratory physician and found that a large percentage of people who suffered from lung disease and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease were people who smoked. “People had started realising smoking was causing cancer but they weren’t doing much to stop it.” This led Dr Martin to conduct and publish research in support of tobacco control. The physician was the first in New Zealand to initiate discussions with the British company who, at the time, supplied Nicotine Replacement Therapy which was eventually brought to New Zealand.

Leggett moves to Johnsonville

The Capital is set to sing with confirmation in this year’s Annual Plan that $320,000 will fund an ongoing series of uniquely-Wellington, creatively-focused events in the CBD and an exciting arts sector activation programme to be delivered by Toi Poneke Arts Centre. Council will meet on June 29 to finalise the Annual Plan 2016/17 and set the rates and budget for the next financial year, beginning July 1.

By Sharnahea Wilson

Wellington Mayoral candidate Nick Leggett has made the move to Johnsonville to prove his dedication to the race ahead of this year’s local government elections. “Initially I thought I would stay living in Porirua but I think Wellingtonians need to see me commit to being in Wellington.” The mayor of Porirua and his wife Emily chose to move closer to the city ahead of the arrival of their baby. “Johnsonville is a good central location. It’s close to the CBD and is family friendly.” The candidate wanted to prove his dedication to becoming the next mayor of Wellington and said the city needed a new energy. Mr Leggett, who became the country’s youngest Mayor when he was elected in Porirua in 2010, said his five terms on the council would work to his advantage in Wellington. “I can apply the skills I have learned on the Porirua Council with my open-minded approach and get things done.” The candidate said if elected he would focus on infrastructure in Wellington and address the issue of cycleways. “The council plans to spend $35 million on cycleways over the next three years. I want to make sure the community is comfortable with that, and also that the council can actually deliver.” He said when he first started on

the council in Porirua it was a “very unharmonious place” but during the last six years the council could disagree on matters without it turning into bedlam. Mr Leggett said that is what it needed to be like on the Wellington City Council. “It’s about understanding that we can have an all encompassing vision

for Wellington.” Mr Leggett said his bid for the Wellington Mayoralty was not a stepping stone to central government, and party politics needed to be left out of local government. “I resigned from the Labour Party to run here. I have become more politically independent as a result of running in Wellington,” he said.

To leash or not to leash By Bethany Tiddy MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Aro Valley residents will have to keep their dogs on-leash at a popular exercise spot if proposed changes to the Wellington City Council dog policy are approved. It was proposed the grounds near the intersection of Aro Street and Holloway Road, close to the old Mitchelltown School site, would no longer be an off-leash area. The area surrounding the old Mitchelltown site is regularly used by walkers, runners, mountainbikers and dogs. However, the council believed the site was a “poor” area to walk dogs off-leash because it was close to the road

and the Polhill Reserve entrance. The council suggested Central Park in Brooklyn as a better alternative to exercise dogs. The new dog policy attracted 273 submissions from the public, of which 12 commented on the proposed change in Aro Valley five in support and seven opposing the change. Berhampore resident Susan Belt said in her submission she strongly disagreed with the removal of the Mitchelltown School site as an off-leash area. John Whitty said the suggested alternative of Central Park was too far away for those living in Holloway Road, Norway Street, Northland and its environs, es-

pecially as many did not have vehicles. “You cannot let a dog off the leash in Central Park so it is not a true dog exercise area.” Hataitai resident Catherine Dunn said she supported the proposed removal after she had encountered aggressive dogs. “Every track I run or mountainbike on I have had issues with unleashed dogs. They are a menace and so are the people who own them. I’d like to be able to ride or run freely around the tracks in Wellington.” The council’s environment committee will consider public feedback in June and the council will make a decision in August.

Dear Ed, Mary Potter Hospice would like thank the people of Wellington for their fantastic support of our recent street appeal. We raised an amazing $87,190 – the highest we have ever raised during a street appeal. To the wonderful volunteers and community leaders who helped us – thank you. To the people

who gave so generously – thank you. We sincerely appreciate the acknowledgement of our services from Wellington communities. Many volunteers related the stories and comments made with the donations. This told us how essential the Mary Potter Hospice service is for our communities – whether that service is undertaken

in the home, in aged care facilities, or in our Newtown Inpatient Unit. It is heartwarming to see the support that Mary Potter Hospice has right across Wellington. My sincere thanks to everyone who supported us. Ria Earp Chief Executive Mary Potter Hospice

Fine dining in the suburbs

Prime Minister John Key enjoys a drink at the newly opened Cashmere Lounge in Khandallah. A fresh new restaurant is in town, and with it comes an innovative menu, extensive wine list and many treats for the tastebuds. Owner of the Cashmere Lounge restaurant in Khandallah, Mark Sheehy, personally renovated the old building by Cashmere Avenue and turned it into a place where people could try exotic flavours right on their doorstep. “It is fine dining in the suburbs – but it still has a nice relaxed atmosphere.” Mark said the chef he has working for him has 20 years of experience including having worked in France, North America, South East Asia and India. The chef has free reign to use exciting flavours from around the world without being bound to one style of food.

“We change the menu up regularly to keep it interesting. And we always have two or three specials a night,” Mark said. “Everytime people come here they can try something they have never had before.” The wine list presents customers with just as many exciting options as the food menu, featuring flavours from France, Spain and Australia. “We are not bound to one distillery which means any wines we want to sell here, we can.” If you’re looking to try something new, head down to the Cashmere lounge, sit by the fire or outside in the sun and enjoy a dish you have never tasted before. Open for dinner 6 nights a week and for brunch from Friday to Sunday.

WINTER@ KARORIMALL Apple Pie

Beef Casserole

Ingredients: For the filling: 1 kg apples 140g golden caster sugar ½ tsp cinnamon 3 tbsp flour For the pastry: 225g butter room temperature 50g golden caster sugar, plus extra 2 eggs 350g plain flour Softly whipped cream to serve

Ingredients: 2 celery sticks thickly sliced 1 onion chopped 2 big carrots halved lengthways then chunkily sliced 5 bay leaves 3 sprigs of thyme 1 tbsp vegetable oil 1 tbsp butter 2 tbsp plain flour 2 tbsp tomato puree 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 2 beef stock cube, crumbled 850g stewing beef Method: Heat the oven to 160 degrees. Boil the jug. Put the celery, onion, carrots, bay and 1 thyme sprig in a casserole dish with 1 tbsp oil and the butter. Soften for 10 minutes, then stir in the flour until it doesn’t look dusty anymore, followed by the tomato puree, Worcestershire sauce and beef stock cubes. Gradually stor in 600 ml hot water, then tip in the beef and bring to a gentle simmer. Cover and pit in the oven for 2 hours and 30 minutes then uncover and cook for 30 minutes – 1 hour longer until the meat is tender and the sauce has thickened.

Method: Put a layer of paper towels on a large baking sheet. Quarter, core, peel and slice the apples about 5mm thick and lay evenly on the baking sheet. Put paper towels on top and set aside while you make and chill the pastry. For the pastry, beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until just mixed. Break in a whole egg and a yolk (keep the white for glazing later). Beat together for just under 1 minute. Work in the flour with a wooden spoon, a third at a time, until it begins to clump up, then finish gathering it together with your hands. Gently work the

dough into a ball, wrap in gladwrap, and chill for 45 minutes. Mix the sugar, the cinnamon and flour for the filling in a bowl that is large enough to take the apples later. After the pastry has chilled, heat the oven to 190C/fan. Lightly beat the egg white with a fork. Cut off a third of the pastry and keep it wrapped while you roll out the rest, and use this to line a pie tin – 20-22cm round and 4cm deep – leaving a slight overhang. Roll the remaining third to a circle about 28cm in diameter. Pat the apples dry with kitchen paper, and tip them into the bowl with the

cinnamon-sugar mix. Give a quick mix with your hands and immediately pile high into the pastry-lined tin. Brush a little water around the pastry rim and lay the pastry lid over the apples pressing the edges together to seal. Trim the edge with a sharp knife and make 5 little slashes on top of the lid for the steam to escape (Can be frozen at this stage). Brush it all with the egg white and sprinkle with caster sugar. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden, then remove and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Sprinkle with more sugar and serve while still warm from the oven with softly whipped cream.

Local business owners meet up Local small business owners are benefitting from a monthly business meet up at Sub Urban Co-Working in the Johnsonville Shopping Centre. Owners of small to medium enterprises in the northern suburbs have been going along to sub-urban to share ideas and listen to guest speakers on the first Wednesday of every month. Last Wednesday guest speaker Phil Sales, who is a lecturer in entrepreneurship at Whitireia, spoke to the group about ‘five ways to find a good business idea’. He spoke about techniques and tools to use to make their business

ideas even better. Attendee Cassandra Palmer of Yes Lets – a property management company – said the talks each month were really beneficial. “You miss out on up-skilling and training when you work alone. The meetup gives us the chance to learn new things about running your own business.” She said working from home could be quite lonely for some people so it was nice to have a space to work with others. “It’s quite uplifting. The speakers are great and there’s always something to learn.” She said by going to Sub Urban

From Scouts to safety heroes By Sharnahea Wilson

The Paparangi Scout Group Keas got a visit from Senior Constable Brett Cronin for their road safety badges.

LETTERS to the editor Money better spent Dear Ed, It was very sad to read Brenda Pilott’s response to my letter about car parking in Johnsonville (Story: 25 May, page 8), and particularly her criticism of the present Johnsonville Public Library. I don’t know if she has ever been in it but I have many times. It is always bright, well lit, clean and tidy with plenty of space. It’s certainly not ‘cramped, dingy and uninviting’ as Brenda has claimed. The present library serves an excellent purpose as a central community facility for the whole area. Given this, should the Wellington City Council really spend $16.5 million of ratepayers’ money on a new, replacement, library as has been proposed. Given the Council’s financial situation and the many worthwhile things the council could spend money on around the city the millions of dollars could be better spent. Regards Peter Graham Johnsonville

The Paparangi Scout Group Keas are now road safety heroes after a visit from a local policeman. While the keas decorated superhero masks, Senior Constable Brett Cronin of the Johnsonville Police Station spoke to them about how to keep safe around roads, in cars and around railway lines. To finish off their road safety badges the group, aged five to eight, did role play exercises to practice how to safely cross roads and help their younger siblings stay safe. Kea Leader Selina Dodd said to achieve the badge they had to learn about the parts of a bike, how to correctly wear a helmet, how to look after their bike as well as take part in the bike skills session. “We finished off the award [by] making road safety super hero masks and discussing what road safety super heroes would do.” She said the group talked about

road safety in general, from how to keep safe around railway lines, to crossing the road and keeping safe on the bus. “The keas came up with many great ideas like helping younger brothers and sisters to keep safe when crossing the road, sitting still while travelling on the bus and giving up their seat to older people, and making sure the seatbelt clicks before parents or caregivers drive away.” Selina said the children loved having “the real life super hero” visit, especially when they went outside and he set off the sirens and flashing lights. “Learning about the important role of fire, police and ambulance services in our community is also a key part of the learning for our youth.”  To find out more, or join the strong team of 18 volunteers visit Paparangiscouts.org.nz

60 years of floral art By Sharnahea Wilson

A local floral art club shared great memories during their 60th birthday celebrations last week. The Johnsonville group marked the special occasion with a full day of activities and celebrations. Eight members created designs which reflected the celebration of diamonds, which were left in the Uniting Church over the weekend to be admired by attendees of the Sunday church service. Past and present members of the club then enjoyed a lunch prepared by the ladies from the Uniting Church. “We were fortunate to have our four life members present to cut the beautiful cake,” floral art club member Jill

Merrick said. After the lunch Sheryl Collins, the owner of Black Rose Florist Beach Hut Plimmerton, wowed the audience of floral art members from other Wellington clubs including Greytown, with her interpretation of a Twist of Autumn, Jill said. “The club received many cards and messages from past and present members thanking the committee for organising such a memorable and enjoyable event.” The Johnsonville Club is keen to attract new members so they are encouraging any visitors who would like to attend a meeting to see how the friendly, relaxed group encourage each other’s creativity to go along. The Johnsonville Floral

Floral art club life members Helen Cross, Margaret O’Connor, Daphne Ross and Elise Smith cut their 60th anniversary cake.

Art Club meet on the third Wednesday every month at 7.30 at the Uniting Church in Doctor Taylor Terrace.

Mixed bag for Johnsonville rugby The Johnsonville Rugby Club's Under-85s team kept up their fine run of form when they downed Poneke 40-7 at Kilbirnie Park on Saturday. In doing so they took the early lead in the Paul Potiki Under-85kg Division 1 competition, following on from a hard-fought win over Avalon the previous week. Johnsonville's Cripples team also continued a good run of form when they proved too strong for MSP in the Reserve Grade, winning 42-19 at Newlands Park. The club's colts team were brought back to earth when they stepped up to division 1 on Saturday and were beaten 50-12 by OBU who had won the first round division 1 title. The Johnsonville boys had gone through the first round, in division 2, unbeaten and gained promotion but after trailing 5-19 at
