In his blood Five decades of volunteer work By Nikki Papatsoumas

For Kentilal Patel, volunteer work is in his blood, so he is always keen to lend a helping hand. The Maupuia resident, known to locals as Ken, has spent the last 55 years serving his community in any way he can. Over the last five decades, the 75-year-old has worked in various government departments, served as a Justice of the Peace and a marriage celebrant. He has been an advocate for others in the community, assisted new immigrants and served on community patrol groups. His numerous efforts have not gone without recognition – the community stalwart has a haul of medals and awards. These include a New Zealander of the Year – Local Hero Award, Safety in the City Award, Absolutely Positively Wellingtonian Award and New Zealander of the Year – Senior New Zealander of the Year Certificate. Continued on page 2 Ken Patel has been serving the community for five decades. PHOTO: Nikki Papatsoumas.

Fresh new sign for eastern suburbs By Nikki Papatsoumas

It’s out with the old and in with the new. Residents and visitors to Maupuia and Miramar will soon be greeted by a new directional sign. Currently a tired and worn directional sign on the corner of Maupuia Rd and Miramar Ave, welcomes and directs visitors to both suburbs. Councillor Sarah Free said over the last year she has been approached by several residents, who said the sign was “well past its used by date”. “They didn’t have any sense of pride,” she explained. With this in mind, Sarah said she got in contact with the Miramar Maupuia Progressive Association and suggested they work on designing and installing a fresh, new sign. Sarah said she then approached local artist John Fuller and local manufacturing engineers A E Tilley. “We thought it would be nice to get it made locally,” Sarah said. “We wanted it to

be simple and timeless and clearly a directional sign. “The new sign reflects the technological expertise and creativity of the area. It is timeless and durable and a bit unique and I hope it will bring a renewed sense of pride for residents.” John, who is responsible for a mural at the entrance to Miramar, said the sign was made of polished aluminium and core ten steel. “The idea was to play off the old rustic sign which is there,” John said. “We wanted something timeless but also used modern technology like laser cutting and modern materials to reflect the high technology and creative side of Miramar.” Sarah said the Wellington City Council had come to the party, footing the bill for installation and some materials. She thanked both John and Rory Bremner from A E Tilley for their help in seeing the sign completed. The new sign is expected to be installed this month.

Fairytale Factory director, Deb Potter, said they were thrilled fans picked Dragons Realm as best youth novel. “Interactive fiction is taking off overseas with the use of e-Readers and it’s great to be acknowledged by New Zealand readers.

Eileen said when young readers venture into the world of Dragons Realm, they’re chased by bullies. Their choices then let them play out various solutions while having great adventures. Readers choices will ultimately lead them to one of 22 outcomes. Eileen said she became interested in interactive fiction after she helped edit a book of the same nature, ‘The Best of Twisty Christmas Tales’. The author of this book liked Eileen’s editing so much she invited her to write an interactive novel of her own. “It is a great adventure and no matter which way you choose teaches kids about relationships without being preachy, through the choices they make. “It is about good choices and how their actions affect relationships with others,” she said. “It is really good for reluctant readers because they read short scenes and then they go to make choices. “It is almost a cross between video games and a book because

Scots College students are excited to present ‘You’re History’

Students present ‘You’re History’ By Nikki Papatsoumas

inbrief news

Vikings, pirates and gladiators are just some of the characters audiences can expect to see in Scots College’s upcoming production. Students will present the production ‘You’re History’ this year, in conjunction with the school’s centenary celebrations, which will culminate in August. The production features a cast of 120 including students from Queen Margaret College and Wellington Girls’ College, alongside a live band. The production follows the story of a ‘techie’ teenager, who turns a ‘St Quots College’ classroom into a time machine. A mischievous detention class

is then sent hurtling back through history and along the way the students discover everything from gallant Ancient Greeks to vicious Vikings, rollicking pirates to disco-happy gladiators and a rapping Romeo and Juliet. Producer Claire Hall said with centenary celebrations in mind, a scene had also been added to reflect on the school’s history. She said the school’s tech department had been busy working on sets and parents were helping create more than 350 costumes. “What we are doing is really ambitious because every scene is completely different. Most kids have multiple roles.” Year 13 students Isaac Hooper and Jeremy Brow play lead char-

acters in the upcoming production. Both have been involved in school productions throughout their school career. They said they were excited to be involved in a production of this magnitude, performed during the school’s centenary year. “It’s our final year and we are very lucky to be part of both the centenary and this big production revolving around it,” Jeremy said. “It’s going to be bright, beautiful with lots of awesome sets, pieces and costumes. There is heaps of energy on stage,” he said.  ‘You’re History’ runs from June 28 to July 2. To purchase tickets, head to scotscollege.

Island Bay residents are once again invited to have their say. President of the Island Bay Residents Association, Vicki Greco, said Wellington City Council was currently discussing whether or not to make Island Bay Beach more dog friendly. Vicki said the residents association made an oral submission on the council’s proposed Animal Bylaw and Dog Policy last month. She said the council was now asking for residents thoughts on two proposed options. The first would see the centre of Island Bay Beach converted into an off-leash area for dogs.

Book repair specialist heads to town

Two petrels return to wild Two sub-Antarctic seabirds have been successfully released back to sea after receiving care at Wellington Zoo, with a little help from the Maritime Unit of the Wellington District Police. A kerguelen petrel and a northern giant petrel that were found just days apart near Wellington by members of the community were likely to have been blown in during recent storms. After being reported to the Department of Conservation, the birds were treated at The Nest, Wellington Zoo’s animal hospital and centre for native wildlife veterinary care. They were released into the wild earlier this week.

“Don’t despair, think repair” – that is the motto a Wellington ‘book surgeon’ likes to live by. Book repair specialist Bill Tito travels up and down the country, repairing old and rare books, documents and maps. Next weekend, Bill will be stationed at the Children’s Bookshop in Kilbirnie giving locals an opportunity to get any priceless treasures in need of some TLC a once over. “I’ve been doing this for about 30 years now, I travel around bookshops, in fact quite a lot of bookshops invite me in,” Bill said. “Next weekend I am giving all people of Wellington an opportunity if they have a special and rare book to come in and see me.” Bill travelled to Wellington from a small town in Taranaki in 1963 to take up an apprenticeship working in the parliamentary library as a book binder. He was then seconded to the Government printing office to finish his apprenticeship. From there he got into book repair, a skill he calls a “dying art”. Bill said he mostly fixes books and documents that have been unearthed by families after being forgotten.


Book repair specialist Bill Tito with a 400-year-old bible he restored.

“The books are often worth what they mean to the person. People will have treasures in their cupboard – lots of family heirlooms.” Among some of the treasures Bill has repaired are a Scottish bible from 1885 that was the size of his fingernail and a Dutch bible that weighed more than 12kg. He has even restored a bible which is more than 400-years-old. “If the book is broken bring it

Known as The Miramar Photobox, this public artwork is 027 232 5778 an exhibit of historic photographic ages from the Eastern suburbs, the earliest dating back over 140 years. The majority of the photographs were sourced REAL ESTATE from the Alexander Turnball Library collection in Wellington. The Photobox is an Enterprise Miramar Peninsula (the Miramar Business Improvement District) initiative and was the work of local artist John Fuller.

Your local community centre: Over the next few editions, the Cook Strait News will profile local community centres dotted across the southern and eastern suburbs. This week we chat to Jenny Ellis from the Hataitai Community House. By Nikki Papatsoumas

Bordered by a beloved children’s playground, it is easy to see why more than 500 local families use the facilities at the Hataitai Community House every week. What sets the centre apart from the rest was a focus on children and their families, the building’s coordinator Jenny Ellis said. While the playground is council owned, the community owns the Waipapa Rd house. “We are independent but we still get a bit of funding from council,” Jenny said. One of the jewels of the community house is its playroom, which hosts seven different playgroups throughout the week. A community playgroup takes place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, Jenny explained, while there were also Spanish speaking playgroups and Sakura playgroups as well as a playgroup for small babies and a nannies playgroup available. “Parents love to socialise and children love to play with each other,” Jenny said. “We operate with a real sense of belonging here, everyone is welcome here, people make very good friends and learn good parenting skills.” Matairangi Kindergarten also operates

from the Hataitai Community House. “It’s fantastic it is really lovely,” Jenny said. “It has got such a community feel to it and it’s much smaller [than normal kindergartens]. “We don’t base it on childcare, we base it on time out for parents. It’s more of a family feel.” Busy Plunket rooms were also based in the building, and community group meetings took place in the evenings alongside yoga, French and drama classes. Jenny has been coordinator at the house for 16 years and said during that time there had never been a day she didn’t want to go to work. “I love kids. My background is in early childcare and paediatric nurse I love organising community based activities, being really involved and just a sense of welcoming.” The community house also works closely with the Hataitai Bowling Club. The club rooms are also community owned and offer a wide range of activities and events for adults and families.  The Hataitai Community House is located at 112 Waipapa Rd in Hataitai. Things to watch out for at the Hataitai Community House:

1. Hataitai Playgroups: Playgroups run on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am to midday. Join for fun activities, music, stories painting and more. Contact Jenny on 3862821 for more information. 2. Seniors Soup and Slices: Takes place at All Saints Church on Monday, July 4 from

midday. Come and meet new friends, play board games and share stories. 3. Quiz Night: A fundraiser for the Hataitai Bowling Club will take place at The Realm from 7pm on July 24. Get together a team for the chance to win great prizes. Contact Jenny on 3862821 for more information.

Now I just have to wait for the next Chatham Island raffle to show my thanks. Paul Franken Strathmore Park

People not using Island Bay sidewalks Dear Ed, I wonder what Paul Eagle, Vicki Greco and Brendon Bonner are going to do about the large number of underused sidewalks in Island Bay? Everyday I see people zooming down Island Bay parade in their cars, and on bicycles in the cycle lane, leaving the sidewalk completely unused. This sidewalk is taking up valuable car parking space on this main street. They're also dangerous, with the possibility of being hit by a car coming out of a drive way or going into one. Let's not forget the risks of car

doors opening into unwitting pedestrians, if there were any, and the risks these high speed walkers could pose to people getting into and out of their cars. Yes, I'm sure there is the occasional uniformed youngster trotting along a sidewalk before 9am and after 3pm, but I've never seen them and why should we motorists bow to people who get around using other means? Let's free up some space in Island Bay and get rid of these underused and dangerous sidewalks. James Barber, Newtown

LETTERS to the editor Cycleways Dear Ed, I keep hearing alarming calls to "return the Island Bay Cycleway to its original layout". Pardon? There wasn't a cycleway there before! At least, not one deserving that name. There was a painted line between the parked cars and the traffic, designating a "lane" for cyclists' use, completely unprotected from incursions by cars buses and trucks. What is more this lane was partly or entirely in the "door zone" - the most dangerous place to ride, because car doors may open without warning

Priorities given to each type of transport and throw the cyclist into the path of adjacent traffic. Experienced cyclists avoid this zone; but inexperienced cyclists are routinely enticed into danger by these so-called cycle lanes. Around New Zealand government authorities have finally woken up to the need, and are investing in protected cycleways, helped by central government funding. We should embrace this as a long-overdue enhancement to our roading infrastructure. Andrew Carman, Brooklyn

New scanner to boost Wellington MRI service A crane delivered a new multi-million dollar MRI scanner into its new home at Wellington Hospital at the weekend. Manufactured in Germany, the new machine will join Capital and Coast District Health Board’s (CCDHB) existing scanner, which itself will soon be replaced. Radiology clinical leader James Entwisle said MRI scans are a definitive test that can help early detection of issues like inflammation, infections or growths. “Early detection allows us to make faster, and more informed, diagnoses – which in turn allows patients to make more informed choices, undergo earlier treatment, and experience better outcomes.” Over the past five years, demand for MRI scans in the greater Wellington region had risen 20 per cent, James said. This was due to a range of factors including CCDHB increasing the number of acute and elective patients it saw and an increasing reliance on imaging for diagnosis. “It was clear that a new scanner – as well as replacement of our existing machine – was needed to ensure we can continue to meet the demand from our communities, which is only going to continue to increase,” James said. “The $6.5 million investment – for the build, replacement and new scanners – means we can deliver a world-class service so patients throughout the region can access the latest technology, get scans faster, and have improved experiences and outcomes.” CCDHB chief executive Debbie Chin highlighted the significant support from

the Wellington Hospital Foundation and its fundraising efforts. “We have a long-standing relationship with the foundation, which is making a significant funding contribution to this project and has been instrumental in enabling it to happen when it has,” she said. “This means we’ve been able to significantly revamp our MRI facilities with new patient waiting areas, and have our two scanners side-by-side to improve staff efficiencies. “The replacement scanner will be installed and operational within the coming months and – over time – we’ll be able to double the number of patients we can scan at Wellington Regional Hospital.”

Dear Ed, Cycleways should be viewed as an element of overall transport solutions. The controversial part is the priorities given to each type of transport. Any residential area (such as Island Bay), or shopping area must put the needs of pedestrians first, then personal transport such as cycles, then public transport such as buses, and finally last the personal motor car. The uproar in Island Bay cannot be found in some problems with a cycleway design or with a supposed

‘ideologically driven council vision’. (It’s only a cycleway Island Bay, get a grip.) Rather the uproar is about the challenge the actual building of the cycleway (finally) makes to the traditional total dominance of the motor car in transport planning. What we perhaps are seeing in Island Bay is the first pop-up US-type Tea Party event (read: Donald Trump) in New Zealand. Richard Keller, Lyall Bay

Locals lace up for marathon By Nikki Papatsoumas

The Wellington Marathon is set to take place later this month. Established in 1986, the annual June event has been Wellington’s major marathon event for 30 years. Event manager Michael Jacques said in recent years it had become New Zealand’s fastest growing marathon event, attracting some 5000 participants, to be one of the New Zealand’s “Big Five”, alongside the Auckland, Queenstown, Rotorua and Christchurch marathons. Based at Wellington’s much-loved Westpac Stadium, the event follows a flat, fast and scenic tour of the Harbour bays. As well as the Marathon over the classic 42.2k distance, other options include the Half Marathon, the 10 km, 5 km run and the Kids’ Magic Mile. Michael said not everyone was up for a marathon but that is not to say there wasn’t a challenge they wanted

A rising softball star has hit the ball out of the park having been selected to represent New Zealand in an upcoming tournament in Australia. Rongotai College sportsman Tobias Makisi has been selected to play for the New Zealand Emerging Sox at the Friendship Games in Sydney next month. The year 13 student, who plays catcher and outfield, has been playing softball since he was a toddler. “I just love getting into the game, the excitement and the intensity in the game.” He currently plays for the Rongotai College senior team and the Wellington U17 team. He is also a member of the Miramar Softball Club, playing for the U17 team, U19 team and Premier 2 grade. The multi-talented student is also on the 1st XV Rugby team at Rongotai College, and all up, spends more than 14 hours per week training. Tobias is all set for his trip to Australia later this month with his family and said he hoped taking part in the series would help him on his

to meet. “As much as it is a serious race, 99 per cent of people are doing their own challenge. I call it ‘every man’s Everest’. “With a bit of training you can set yourself little mini goals and do things you would not have otherwise done.” Michael said as well as thousands of locals, the event attracted more than 1000 participants from outside the wider region. He said this and the event organisation itself generated annual economic impact for the City of more than one million dollars. “This is an aspect we’re really keen to increase,” said Michael. “The bigger the event grows, the more Wellington benefits, both altruistically and economically.” The Wellington Marathon will take place on June 26.

journey to becoming a professional sportsman. “I am hoping to improve on my skill set and to come out a more confident and knowledgeable player. “Hopefully I will make it as far as I can with the sport. “One of my goals is that if I follow this pathway, hopefully I can achieve. A lot of hard work has been put in.” Rongotai College principal Kevin Carter said Tobias was a “great all-round young man”. “He is also a great rugby player – an absolute cornerstone of the 1st XV. “It has been really great to see the resurgence of his sport in the last year or so, it is really good to have a current New Zealand rep and some on the conveyor belt as well.”
