Civic Square bomb scare By Sharnahea Wilson

Wellington’s Civic Square was evacuated due to a bomb scare last week. On Wednesday, June 15 the Wellington Central Library and the Wellington City Council buildings were evacuated after a suspicious package was found. City Councillor Paul Eagle sent a tweet at 3.42pm which

said “Bomb scare at WCC – I’m outta here”. Police checked through the buildings and the library was quickly reopened after the package was found not to be a safety risk. The Civic Square underground car park had also reopened to the public. Wellington City Council’s service centre remained closed to the public until 8am

on Thursday. City Council Chief Executive Kevin Lavery said he was pleased with the quick and calm manner in which the buildings were evacuated. He said public safety was a priority. He also thanked Police for their quick and thorough work. The council bomb scare came just a few weeks after classes had to be evacuated

at Victoria University when a suspicious note was found. On Friday, May 27 University Manager Colin Marshall had confirmed police were investigating the threat that was specific to Victoria’s Kelburn Campus. Classes in the affected area were cancelled until 1pm. The buildings also reopened once police established there was no safety risk.

Keen cook to feature on Maori Television show Continued from page 1 She said she has always loved being in the kitchen but cooking, rather than baking, was usually her strong point. Mahina is multi-talented, work i ng a s t he genera l manager of the local Maori Women’s Welfare League, of which she has also been a member for 14 years. Mahina said her cousin was very close to her growing up and they were both taught to cook from a young age. “I’m used to cooking huge meals at the Marae.” Mahina made a three tier German Chocolate Cake which she said took a lot of practice. “I made four of them at home before the actual challenge and dropped them off to friends.” She said the whole experience of cooking off against her cousin was a lot of fun. “I really enjoyed it.” Mahina had never been on television before and said the cameras took a bit of getting used to. “It was strange having all the

Community waves goodbye to doctor after 44 years By Sharnahea Wilson

A doctor who has been at a local practice since 1972, delivered over 2000 babies and treated countless patients is now set to retire. The Johnsonville Medical Centre will wave goodbye to Doctor Allen Cockburn in August after his 44 years of treating the local community. Over the next couple of months Allen will work with his patients to match them with another doctor at the practice before he retires. When Allen graduated as a doctor from Otago Univeristy he initially worked long hours at the Wellington Hospital in maternity and gynecology. “I would be working 97 hours one week and 107 hours the next,” Allen said. He then moved out to Khandallah but continued to work in maternity for a further eight or nine years. Allen decided to join a practice in Johnsonville in 1972 where there was just one other doctor and no practice nurses.

“It was a different time when I first came here,” Allen explained. “Broadmeadows and Paparangi didn’t even exist.” As the practice and the local population grew, Allen and his colleague had to shift to bigger buildings until they finally moved to Moorefield Road about 25 years ago. Allen said one of the hardest things about retiring would be saying goodbye to the patients he had treated for years. “I have grown close to many families.” When he retires, Allen will focus on his hobbies which include fishing and photography. “I’ll miss the people not the paper work,” he laughed.

Romance writer heads to national conference By Sharnahea Wilson

Ngaio writer Kris Pearson with two of her romantic-themed novels. PHOTO: Sharnahea Wilson

Romance novelist Kris Pearson of Ngaio will head to a national writing conference in August to hear from some well-established international authors. Kris will join hundreds of ot her aspi r ing a nd published writers at the country’s largest writer’s conference, in Auckland. She said the Romance Writers of New Zealand conference has been hugely beneficial every year she has

attended. Kris has written multiple short stories and about 11 romance novels in her career. “About five years ago me and a friend started publishing direct on Amazon,” she explained. Kris said it was a struggle to get her books printed in the beginning, but once she started making them available online they took off. “I made one free early on which now has two million copies worldwide.” The romance novelist started off as an advertising copy writer and she has always loved writ-

ing. She said the ironic thing was that she was never a huge reader of romance but decided to get into romance writing as it was one of the more popular selling genres. Years ago Kris attended a one-day writing workshop in Paraparaumu and from there she was hooked. The writer was looking forward to attending the conference for about the 10th year in a row to learn more skills and catch up with old friends. American screenwriting legend Michael Hauge will be the

highlight of the conference for Kris. “He will hold an all-day workshop on the Friday – he’ll be fabulous.” Kris said she is very happy doing what she is doing and does not plan to stop any time soon. “I can’t imagine ever giving up, this will be a job for the rest of my life.”  For more information on the conference visit www. romancewriters.co.nz or if you would like to check out Kris’ work head to www.krispearson.com.

Wadestown Primary School children feasted on a hangi last week in celebration of Matariki. Matariki is Maori for both the name of the Pleiades star cluster and the season of its first rising in late May or early June. It is the marker of the beginning of the Maori New Year, and Wadestown School students and staff celebrated Matariki by enjoying a traditional Maori hangi. Ten-year-old Jack Fraser of the Ngati Tuwharetoa tribe explained how the hangi was made. He said the food was put into baskets in the ground with wet sacks on top of it. A flame thrower was used to heat the rocks the food sat on and the chicken, kumera, potatoes and carrots were left to cook underground for about four hours. One of the six cooks who helped out on the day was Ben Hingston whose daughter was on the Wadestown School Whanau Group. The retired teacher travelled all the way down from Rotorua to help out. “When I was a teacher I used to put on a lot of hangis for fundraisers,” Ben explained. Logan Mead, who is in charge of Te Reo education at Wadestown, said when he was growing up he never learned anything about Matariki. “Now schools are embracing it and putting Maori culture at the forefront

of children’s minds,” he said. Logan said Maori education was weaved through all aspects of education at Wadestown School. “We integrate it through everything – we always do Maori greet-

ings in the mornings.” He said it was wonderful the students got the chance to try a traditional hangi, and from what he heard they all seemed to really enjoy it.

Headlining Victoria University of Wellington’s International Institute of Modern Letters (IIML) 2016 season are award-winning New Zealand authors Anne Kennedy, Patricia Grace and Jenny Bornholdt.

tion with Pip Adam about how different genres require a writer to use time in different ways. The following Monday, Arts Foundation Icon Patricia Grace will join accomplished writer for screen and stage Briar Grace-Smith for a look into the career of this deeply subtle, moving and subversive writer. Then on July 25 Chris Price will introduce a quartet of new poets. Bill Nelson, Claire Orchard, Hera Lindsay Bird and Lynley Edmeades have published diverse and exciting fi rst books this year which are showcased in this session.  The Writers on Mondays programme will run from July 11 to September 26.

Creative art works for cultural celebration By Sharnahea Wilson

The Newlands Community Centre has been decked out with creative artworks by local students in celebration of Matariki. Community Centre Advocate Pippa Cubey said the centre liked to celebrate the occasion every year, but this year it was a rather special event. “The year three and four students from Bellevue Primary School created art about Matariki to display here.” Pippa went along to the school

last week to tell the children about Matariki and then left it up to them to create art work. The students made self portraits, hands reaching up to stars, and kites which all celebrated the themes of Matariki. The pictures were hung in different areas of the community centre and the students attended their very own art exhibition opening there on Wednesday, June 15. Eight-year-old Alex Mabey said in preparation for Matariki they got to watch a video of someone

reading a legend of Matariki. Year three-four team leader Anna Borrer said the students also celebrated by having fish and chips at the school with their families and participated in activities. “It has been nice building links with the local community.” The artwork will be up until at least the end of the month, Pippa said. Everyone is welcome to go along to the community centre to check out the children’s creative pictures. Volunteer Pauline O’Sullivan (middle) with Cashmere Home residents Therese Shields and Shirley Thomas.

Volunteer with Wellington’s elders Wellingtonian’s are being encouraged to ‘make time’ for the city’s elders. National Volunteer Week runs from 19 to 25 June 2016, with the theme ‘make time’. Johnsonville’s Pauline O’Sullivan, who has been volunteering at Enliven’s Cashmere Home since 2014, says volunteering with the elderly is something more people should consider. “It’s seeing people enjoying their life, perking up and participating more. It’s about seeing people improve,” says Pauline. “I think a lot of people would find volunteering with the elderly really rewarding.” Pauline’s volunteer role at Cashmere Home sees her visiting for a couple of hours each week to read to and chat with the residents. “I read articles and do the newspaper quiz with them. I encourage discussion and everybody has great opinions and great knowledge.” Pauline is encouraging others to try their hand at volunteering with Enliven. “It’s about making an effort and finding time.” Cashmere Home recreation officer Liz Rivadelo explains Enliven has a six homes across the Wellington region and volunteers

can take on various roles at times that suit them. “Our homes are always looking for volunteers for all sorts of roles, like helping with activities or just spending one-on-one time with the residents. There are so many ways people can make a difference,” says Liz. “For example, at Cashmere Home we’re looking for volunteers to help run a ladies group and also someone who is able to run our Kid’s Group by organising activities that young children will enjoy.” Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support central, operates Cashmere Home and Cashmere Heights Home in Johnsonville, Huntleigh Home in Karori and Longview Home in Tawa, as well as Kilmarnock Heights Home in Berhampore and Woburn Home in Lower Hutt  To express your interest in volunteering with Enliven, free phone 0508 TO HELP (that's 0508 86 4357) or email support@ psc.org.nz.  For more information about Enliven's homes and services in the Wellington region, free phone 0508 ENLIVEN (that's 0508 36 54 83) or visit www.enlivencentral.org.nz.

Volunteering runs in the family By Rachel Binning

Volunteering is in Newlands man Chad O’Hara’s blood. A strong family affiliation with volunteer firefighters, going back to his great grandfather, was a strong incentive for Chad to keep up the family volunteering tradition. As well as being a volunteer for the Newlands Fire Ser vice, Chad has been volunteering with the Wellington Free Ambulance

(WFA) for nearly two years. “It was a nat u ra l pro gression for me to join up [with WFA] and help the community out along with lea r ning new sk ills and making lifelong friends,” Chad said. Chad decided to join the WFA as he had been attending an increasing number of medical calls with the Fire Service. “I wanted to learn more about the medical side. “ My f l a t m a t e s a t t h e time were full-time WFA

paramedics. I used to go out on shift with them as an observer and got hooked,” Chad said. Chad is an emergency ambulance service volunteer who is expected to pull his weight equally to his paid paramedic colleagues. His duties include vehicle cleaning and checks, drug checks, patient care, assessment, driving and responding to 111 calls. “ [WFA] support me in learning, they support our community in emergencies.

I support them to make a difference. “Over the last year I completed around 1300 hours of volunteer time with WFA,” Chad said. Chad said WFA was the best organisation he had volunteered with. “Volunteers are treated as a member of the team not as a volunteer.”  For information on volunteering at WFA visit www.wfa.org.nz/ event-medics

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville a house in Phillip Street left locked and secure was discovered on return by the owner with the front door unlocked. A digital piano keyboard was stolen. A silver late model Ford Falcon pulled into a service station in Johnsonville Road and a female passenger got out and used self service to fill the tank from the pump. When the pump stopped the passenger jumped back into the car which sped away without paying. Police have the registration plate details but it remains to be seen if the registration is genuine or if the vehicle was using stolen plates.

In Newlands two garden chairs, not visible from the road, were stolen from the garden of a house in Mark Avenue. In Bracken Road the cable connected to a TV aerial for a flat was wrenched out. A red Suzuki Escudo station wagon parked overnight within a property in Wakely Road was stolen. The vehicle had an insecure door and contained diving equipment. In Stewart Drive a white Ford Laser station wagon was stolen. The owner was looking out of his window and saw it being reversed down his driveway and immediately called the Police. The vehicle has not yet been recovered.

A white Mitsubishi L300 van parked briefly in Lyndfield Lane during the afternoon was broken into via a forced front door. A backpack, wallet, drivers licence and various trade certification documents were stolen. In Khandallah the garden of a house in Rama Crescent was entered and the outboard motor was taken from a parked boat together with a locator beacon attached to it. In Mandalay Terrace a silver Toyota Landcruiser Prado parked on the road was entered via a smashed driver side window. A radar detector and a pair of sunglasses were stolen.

Cyclists rarely seen Dear Ed, Until now, I thought that I was the only person that has rarely, if ever, seen a cyclist in the cycle lanes. But it transpires that what I suspected is correct from the survey conducted in your June 15 edition – page 8. Surely, the council conducted a "survey/

analysis" to determine that they were required prior to committing expenditure to the project. I suspect that it was "pushed through" by Celia Wade-Brown who has abused her position as Mayor to force cycle lanes on Wellingtonians, whether they are

wanted, required, or not. There is controversy about the cycleway in Island Bay. But to cast further doubt on Wade-Brown's credibility, according to the article (on page 10 of IH this issue) that she welcomed the release of the Morrison Lowe report on Wellington's

corner of Broderick and Johnsonville roads on the way to work on Monday morning to see for myself. Within an hour I was able to take photos of 45 cyclists using the cycle lanes. It is common for the number of cyclists to be underestimated, and this is most likely because

Dear Ed, Kiwibank is ideal for us. Plus total services, banking. Postal, billing, registerations etc. Why is Kiwibank closing down on the 27th of July? No written notice was given to the customers. It is an ideal location now, it is safe with a lot of free parking, and close to the mall where people can use it daily. It also serves Kelburn, Northland, and Makara. The closest Kiwi Bank is at Lambton Quay which is over 4km away. That will be a huge cost for the customer travelling

they take up less space than other road users. Johnsonville cyclists may seem invisible but they do exist and they certainly are benefiting from the cycle lanes. Jonathan Kennett Ngiao

Dear Ed, It's rather telling that there was unanimous comment in your paper last week on the Johnsonville Road cycleway. It's an absolute white elephant that nobody uses. I would like to know where is the ownership of this mess from our ward councillor Justin Lester? He's been holding Wade-Brown's hand through all of Wellington's cycleway drama

Mall ‘rather depressing’

Low blow for Karori time. In addition to that, only pay parking is available. The postage side is moving to the Karori Mobil petrol location, which is a dangerous access. When travelling from the south, you cannot turn right to the petrol side. People walking to the petrol station endanger themselves from fast moving traffic. What are Karori people going to do without the Kiwibank services? Abridged Peter Hermens Northland

let's get back to basics and run an efficient and economically viable council without lumbering our ratepayers with more increases to cover money wasting projects. Abridged Brian Whetton

Cycle lanes unnecessary

Cycle lanes beneficial Dear Ed, There seems to be a misconception that virtually no one uses the cycle lanes in Johnsonville. I refer to your opinion piece (opposite the full page car advertisement) where a couple of people thought “they aren’t used at all”. I decided to stop at the

urban cycleway programme, promoting the waste of more valuable Council funds and Foster agrees with it, along with all the other "lambish" councillors. Are we being naive in hoping there are some Councillors with the fortitude to say "enough is enough",

Dear Ed, Johnsonville is a great area with access to good facilities such as medical centres, vet clinics, banks, two supermarkets, swimming pool, parks, library, hairdressers, gyms, professional practices, good transport to the city and many other amenities. Sadly the Johnsonville Mall with its limited shops is rather depressing and it needs a total makeover and spruce up to cater for current residents and to attract more people from outside the area. I walked through the mall last Thursday night about 7pm (late night) and only saw a handful of people there. Let’s hope that some work can be done to save this mall which many years ago was vibrant and busy but is no longer. Megan Barber, Johnsonville

as Deputy Mayor and if I'm not mistaken he was the one who chaired the decision to ram the Island Bay cycleway through. And yet he keeps quiet. I think our local "Mr Cycleway" should start fronting up for these decisions, especially the mess he's helped create in Johnsonville. John Barry Khandallah

Further comments on the Johnsonville Mall: The Mall has a really great atmosphere, and older folk really appreciate the fact that it is there and so user friendly. Stride executives would do a wonderful service if they incorporated plans for a small cinema in their complex. – Philip Gibbs We prefer to shop elsewhere. The mall is deteriorating. – Judy Kirby Has Helene Ritchie actually been inside the Johnsonville Mall lately? Shops are closing down and not being replaced, the selection for shopping is dismal, and the foodcourt could do with several more choices. There is less and less reason to go there. If the supermarket closed, the car park would be half empty. – Marty Pilott

Over $1 million of community grants approved The Karori Community Centre, the Johnsonville Community Centre and the Khandallah Cornerstone Resource Centre Trust Board are among the initiatives set to receive some $1.3 million in grants. The Wellington City Council’s community, sport and recreation committee delegated funds to multiple community facilities and initiatives during their meeting on July 15. The committee approved funding contracts, for 24 community organisations, which will commence on July 1. Mayor Celia Wade-Brown said while many initiatives were in need of financial sup p o r t , o rga n i s a t ion s working on the frontline to end homelessness and aid refugee settlement met the criteria and were particularly worthy. “ We a l s o c o m m it t e d further support to ending

homelessness through the Te Whakamura partnership which includes the Soup K itchen, the Downtown Community Ministry and Ngati Kahungunu ki Poneke Community Services, and to refugee resettlement including ongoing support for English Language Partners.” Committee Chair Councillor Paul Eagle said the funding went to those organisations with a track record of delivering value and a return for ratepayers. The recipients of the grants include: Johnsonville Community Centre which will receive $49,290 between 2016 and 2019, the Karori Community Centre will receive $56,000 between 2016 and 2019, Khandallah Cornerstone Resource Centre Trust Board - Khandallah Town Hall will receive $44,580 between 2016 and 2019, and Aro Valley Community Council Inc will receive $52,000 until 2019.

Marsden School students got the opportunity to take part in a worldly music workshop recently. Year eight students from Marsden participated in a special musical experience when they were involved in a Gamelan Workshop as part of their World Music Programme. Gamelan is the traditional ensemble music of Indonesia often played to accompany dance,

puppet performances and ceremonies. Made up predominantly of percussive instruments, the Marsden girls really enjoyed the opportunity to play the metallophones with mallets and hand drums called kendhang which register the beat. There were also big gongs and other instruments which when played together formed a

distinctive sound, very familiar to anyone who has been to Indonesia. Marsden School thanked Budi Putra, who was the Cultural representative from the Indonesian Embassy and Jo Hilder and Helen O'Rourke from Gamelan Wellington based at the School of Music Victoria University for “putting on this amazing workshop”.

Big plans for Cable Car Lane

An artist’s impression of the new-look Cable Car Lane.

Major changes are on their way for Wellington’s iconic Cable Car which is currently out of action due to a major equipment upgrade. A $1.5 million upgrade of Cable Car Lane started last week and, once finished, it will make getting to and from the Cable Car a much more uplifting experience. Between now and October, the lane’s leaky old canopy will be replaced with a glass one that will let in the sunshine. Wellington Mayor Celia WadeBrown said the new terminus and lookout at the top, which opened in 2014, was looking great. “From the recent terminus and lookout at the top to the Lambton entrance, the journey will be lighter and more exciting.” The old ticket booth will also

be replaced and the entry gates repositioned to make it easier to queue and buy tickets. The lane will be open as usual while the work happens so people can still visit the food outlets, bar and other businesses within. Councillor Nicola Young, Portfolio Leader for Central City Projects, said the planned upgrade is part of the programme to rejuvenate the city’s laneways. “Cable Car Lane is the gateway to one of Wellington’s most iconic tourist attractions but it’s also a key feature of Lambton Quay, our premier shopping precinct. Its facelift is long overdue and, once completed, will make Wellingtonians proud.” Councillor Andy Foster, who chairs the Council’s Transport and

Urban Development Committee, said the Council had planned to upgrade Cable Car Lane next year but had brought some of the work forward to coincide with the Cable Car shut-down. “We are working with the owner of the adjacent buildings and the Cable Car operators to plan and programme this work.” The Cable Car is expected to be back in service from August 1 and the work around the ticket booth will be finished by then. Other work in the lane will continue until October.  Buses to the Cable Car lookout are leaving from outside on Lambton Quay every 20 minutes while the Cable Car is out of action: 7am–7pm weekdays and 8.40am–6pm weekends.

Free insulation for family homes low-income families. The scheme will finish in its current form on June 30. It will carry on for another two years but with different eligibility criteria. This week will be the last chance for homeowners who have Community Services Cards to access free insulation – insulation subsidies after June 30 will only apply to landlords. Landlords can also access 60 per cent subsidies on insulation

if their tenants meet the criteria before June 30. Sustainability Trust can provide the assessment, organise the subsidies and install the insulation – but homeowners and landlords would need to get in touch before the final date to make that happen. “This is the last chance homeowners have to access free insulation – we have insulated more than 6000 homes through the Warm Up New Zealand scheme over the last

six years, and we’re really keen to see those last few households make use of the funding before June 30,” Sustainability Trust chief executive Phil Squire said. “We strongly urge anyone who thinks they might be eligible to get in touch with us as soon as possible. Insulation can be the difference between a miserable cold winter and a warm, healthy home, so it’s very much worth doing.” Homeowners who have a Com-

munity Services Card and have children under 17 in the house, people older than 65, or ongoing health issues are eligible to access free insulation. The house would also need to have been built before year 2000.  If homeowners or landlords think they are eligible, they need to contact Sustainability Trust to arrange an assessment as soon as possible – they can call 0508 78 78 24.

Wellington celebrates diversity By Rachel Binning

Wellington has a truly rich and diverse population. Red Cross marked World Refugee Day 2016 with a vibrant event at the Anglican Chinese Mission in Thorndon on Saturday, June 18. Delicious aromatic and exotic food, diverse craft and colourful, live cultural performances from around the globe captivated event

attendees. Red Cross Wellington Service Centre Coordinator Margaret Carson said the event “was a celebration and acknowledgement in the value of former refugees’ contribution to our society”. Red Cross volunteers buzzed around the hall talking with refugee families, forging new friendships and checking how adjustment to Kiwi culture was going.

Friendly fellow Syrians supported a new Syrian refugee, along with his baby, who came to Wellington two days ago and speaks no English. A young woman from Iran came to New Zealand as a refugee five years ago knowing no English. Now in fluent English with a proud New Zealand accent she explained her dream of being a pilot, which would not have been

a possibility for her in her home country. Happy faces stood in stark contrast to the extraordinary circumstances these ordinary people had faced and the difficulties they experienced in getting to New Zealand. This year Red Cross launched the ‘Stand in their Shoes’ campaign via social media to coincide with World Refugee Day. It was hoped swapping shoes

and stories would help break down barriers, forge common understanding and friendship in the community. To all 600 Red Cross volunteers across New Zealand in Volunteer Week Carson said “we could not do what we do in the community without our dedicated and hardworking volunteers”.  For more information go to: www.redcross.org.nz/getinvolved/stand-their-shoes/

Renovating can be costly and inconvenient, but can also increase the value and enjoyment of your home. There are two main reasons why people renovate; to add to the comfort, use and value of the home, and to tidy it up to sell. Before you launch into renovations, take time to consider whether the expense and disruption is justified. Consider the tastes of potential buyers, which really means keeping everything fairly neutral to appeal to a wider range of people. Not everyone likes bright feature walls or pink bathtubs. Renovations that will increase the appeal of your home may include painting the kitchen and bathroom, or putting in some decking to give an indoor-outdoor flow and an increased sense of space or some landscaping. If you are renovating to sell, it is likely that you’ll want to give the house an inexpensive makeover to freshen it up and make it more attractive to buyers. For example, repainting, repapering, or changing dated or damaged fixtures, such as a cracked basin in the bathroom.

Winning streak for Waterside women N

Waterside Karori football Club’s women’s premier league team are on a winning run and coach Bill Roberston is optimistic they can keep up the form this week against Victoria University. “They beat us earlier in the season but we are an improved team since then and we are very positive about the game on Sunday,” Bill, who has coached the team for the last three seasons, said. After a slow start to the season the Waterside Karori Women’s team – Wharfies Classic – have been in dominating form of late with four wins from their last five matches. “It’s a bit of science and a bit of art,” Bill said. A solid “It takes time to get to know the plays and what works and what doesn’t. This year the league has expanded to 10 teams and the quality of play is very high.” Wharfies Classic beat Petone away 3-2 on

Sunday, having also won away against Kapiti Coast United 2-1 the week before. The other two wins were 4-2 away to Western Suburbs and a 3-0 home win against Stop Out. The win against Petone, who are second in the league, was a good indicator of the strong current form of Wharfies Classic who will be looking for a continuation of their winning run on Sunday. Meanwhile the Waterside-Karori Men’s premier team took out a hard fought local derby match 2-1 with neighbours North Wellington at Alex Moore Park on Saturday. The win put Wharfies nine points clear at the top of the league while Norths slip back to sixth in a crowded league. Wharfies next league match is against Tawa while Norths will be looking to regain winning form against Island Bay.

Old Timer’s Day Old friends will reunite and young friends will face off against each other at this weekend’s Old Timer’s Day at Alex Moore Park.
