Speed Hurricane limits Michael

Buses and Parking major Selected for problem Rugby camp for child care centres By Emma McAuliffe

By Aaron Meredith

A local lad will be heading to Masterton to take part in the Hurricanes Under-18 coaching camp. Sixty players from around the Hurricanes region have been selected for the four day camp which includes sessions of high performance coaching and life education skills with a range of top provincial coaches and the Hurricanes Investec Super Rugby coaching staff. One of the sixty chosen for the camp is Wainuiomata High School Head Boy and Captain of the 1XV, Michael Martin. The 17-year-old said he was surprised but happy he had made the cut.

Speeding buses and a lack of parking are two of the problems facing teachers, parents and children in early childhood centres in Wainuiomata. There is little to no road signs outside of many centres in the valley warning drivers to slow down. Jack and Jill Kindergarten has been fighting with New Zealand Buses for many years, finally asking Hutt South MP Trevor

Mallard for help. It is only since he got involved the bus company has responded. The kindergarten has two signs warning drivers of the centre, but these were only put up after a child was hit by a car a few years back. “It is only a matter of time before someone gets hit again.” says head teacher Chris Moses. “I understand the drivers are on a schedule, but they are going so fast.” Continued on page 2

1080 and the community board By Emma McAuliffe

Residents had the chance to have their say about the use of 1080 near their homes at last week’s quarterly Community Board meeting. Five locals used the public comment section of the meeting to air their concerns about the toxic bait, which may be used in the Southern Rimutakas ranges later this year. The Greater Wellington Regional Council and OSPRI/TB Free were also invited to talk about the use of 1080 at last Wednesday’s meeting. Hutt City Councillor for the Western Ward, and Woolyarns company accountant, Max Shierlaw, was among those to make a case against the use of 1080. Woolyarns produce natural fibre yarns from the wool of animals like possums. Max said he believed trapping would be more beneficial than poison, as the possum’s fur could then be collected and manufactured to use for clothing and other products. Locals in attendance used the opportunity to question representatives from OSPRI/TB Free

National Volunteer Week took place last week and with it came the opportunity to celebrate some of the volunteers in the Wainuiomata community. National Volunteer Week ran from Sunday, June 19 until Saturday, June 25. It was described by Volunteering New Zealand as being a call to action and to get people to consider making time to volunteer in 2016 and beyond. Janice Awatere, who works at

and the regional council about the use of 1080. They asked whether or not dead possums would be picked up, and why the regional council was not interested in trapping. Graham Butcher, for OSPRI, and Brad Campbell for the regional council, said they would begin to explore whether the Southern Rimutakas was suit-

the Wainuiomata Community Hub, said having volunteers was very beneficial to her workplace and the wider community. “Volunteers are a really important asset for an organisation. It helps lead people in the right direction, it gives people a sense of self-worth,” she said. Louise Houpapa, a volunteer with Nui FM, agreed. “For me, back when I started it was about gaining skills and getting out and finding some volunteer work to help me get into work. It’s about connecting with

able for a 1080 drop this week. Graham said residents would be approached for consent before a drop in their area would take place. However, when asked by Community Board Member Campbell Barry whether there would be full public consultation, Graham said no. Deputy chair Josh Briggs had several questions for the duo

Courtney White, a previous volunteer with YOUth Inspire, made her volunteer work into a job, and became a paid employee at YOUth Inspire on Monday. Courtney said she had been a volunteer with YOUth Inspire since April. She said she had decided to become a volunteer because she had previously been one of the young people the organisation had helped out.

New street names honour past residents By Emma McAuliffe

The Wainuiomata Board had the opportunity to discuss future street names in Wainuiomata at their quarterly meeting last Wednesday. The board had been presented with many options for the new street, to be located at the Parkway subdivision and the subdivision at the end of Wise Street. The names had previously gone out for public consultation and input had been sought from local iwi and the Wainuiomata Historical Society. The proposed new street names in the Parkway subdivision are Brian Morgan Terrace, Barry Groucott Grove, Hillview Rise and Apperley Way. Apperley was suggested by the developer and the Wainuiomata Historical Society. It refers to Frederick Apperley, former owner of a section of the Parkway extension and his brother Len Apperley

whose name is on the Wainuiomata War Memorial. The other three names came from the consultation process. A number of submissions were received for Brian Morgan in memory of the contractor and original developer of this land, Parkway. Groucott was in memory of Barry Groucott, a local plumber and businessman who contributed to various community projects and Hillview in reference to the surrounding landscapes. The proposed new street names for the subdivision at 204 Wise Street are Jack Vaughan Grove and Craigie Way. Jack Vaughan Grove was named for Wainuiomata’s first resident police constable and Craigie Way for William Craigie, St John’s organist and choirmaster and longtime resident who died in 2004. All of the names have been agreed to be acceptable to use by Land Information New Zealand.

Volunteers bring smiles By Emma McAuliffe

Two local sisters have been volunteering their time and teaching their children some life lessons as part of the group, Aroha Smiles. Natasha Beik ie and Leah Faapusa star ted the Aroha Smiles last year to perform for the elderly, first at Shona McFarlane Retirement Village and currently at Wesleyhaven Village in Naenae. The Aroha Smiles are made up of Leah and Natasha, their children and two other parents with children. Leah’s husband Iafeta provides the musical accompaniment. The group travels to Wesleyhaven Village on the first Tuesday of every month to perform songs and spend time with the residents living there. Leah and Natasha said they tried to get a practice in with the children before each performance and each performance would have a theme such as Waitangi Day or Queen’s Birthday. Following their performances the children interact with the elderly by giving them morning tea and presenting them with gifts relating to the theme. Leah said the duo’s passion for volunteering came from their grandmother. “Grandma inspired us. She used to go perform for the elderly. It’s teaching our kids to honour the

elderly. We’ve got a passion for the people,” Leah said. “Volunteering is giving something back. Even though Wesleyhaven is in Naenae we’ve met people who lived in Wainui their whole lives,” Natasha added. Natasha said it was good for her children to engage with the elderly when they perform at the

retirement home. “They’re getting quite confident. You’re teaching your kids people skills. It’s recognizing older people, connecting generations and bridging the gap,” she said. “Volunteering is rewarding, it brightens your heart,” Leah added.

Residents think the Hutt is a great place to live Nearly one hundred per cent of Hutt Valley residents think the Hutt is a great place to live, according to a recent survey by the Hutt City Council. The Hutt City Council Communitrak Survey of residents has shown some very positive results in peoples’ attitudes to the city they live in, and how their Council is delivering. Ninety four per cent of residents surveyed said they thought Hutt City was a great place to live. The annual survey results also reaffirmed support for the investment Council was making in the rejuvenation of the city. Only 10 per cent of residents were

dissatisfied with the way Council spends rates, compared to an average of 29 per cent for equivalent councils. Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace said he was “reminded on a daily basis how fortunate I am to live here, and I am thrilled the vast majority of the community seems to share this view”. “This is not just a reflection of the performance of Council but also on the wonderful, positive people we have in our communities in Lower Hutt. “We have great participation in local democracy here, and people are really involved in their community and telling us what they want to see

happen,” he said. Council Chief Executive Tony Stallinger said he was pleased with the average resident satisfaction of 90 per cent across Council’s services. “We have a strong focus on our customers and making it easy to do business with us. It is a real boost for our staff that their hard work is recognised. “Only three per cent of residents were not satisfied with staff performance, which compares favourably to the average of 14 per cent dissatisfaction in other city councils. Nevertheless, we remain focused on identifying any concerns and making improvements.”

Business meeting with a side of breakfast By Emma McAuliffe

Development Wainuiomata had a visit from Label and Litho at their monthly breakfast meeting last week. Just over twenty people braved the cold to listen to Camilla Welch speak about her time as co-owner of the Seaview label printing family business. She talked to the group about the issues which could arise from running a family business. She outlined what her business did and how she and her brothers had become so successful at running the family

business. “For us to be successful we need to try new things. There’s only one way to eat an elephant, and that’s one bite at a time,” she said. Following Camilla’s talk the group had their annual general meeting. Committee members have stayed the same with the exception of Clive Cannons who stepped down from his role of vice-president. Paul Chapman has taken over from Clive as the new vice-president. Returning president, Margaret Willard, said the group had a great year with attendance

numbers rising, membership packs being developed and the group being given the opportunity to join the Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce. “I’m looking forward to a vibrant year for Development Wainuiomata,” Margaret said.  Development Wainuiomata’s next breakfast will take place on July 29. Guest speaker will be Kurt Renner from Go Healthy.

Local artist takes on Wellington By Emma McAuliffe

HOUSING CRISIS: Noel with one of his paintings“Brown Housing”. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe

A resident has been hitting the easel and will be having an exhibition in Wellington this week. Local artist, Noel Faifai, has not had an exhibition of his artwork since 2005. He said he stopped painting for a while after his youngest son was born but decided to get back into it last year until the flooding destroyed some of his paintings. “Some of my paintings were just floating around in the garage. I had a little cry about it and then moved on. There’s nothing profound about why I stopped and

started again,” he said. Noel said he would have twelve paintings showing at the exhibition. He said he created in multimediums with stencilling and painting, sometimes on tapa cloth and works within a variety of themes. “There’s a lot of Polynesian [themes]. Some have religious and political themes. I love traditional Pacific Island and Maori art,” he said. Among his political art pieces is a painting depicting various Housing New Zealand flats from Petone to Porirua.

“It’s pretty much about the state of Housing New Zealand flats. A lot of us grew up in them and would recognise them,” he said. Others depict traditional Maori and Pasifika foods. Noel said he was looking forward to exhibiting again, whether or not he managed to sell anything. “I don’t expect to explode. If I sell one piece that will be great. If I don’t it’ll be alright too,” he said.  Noel Faifai’s exhibition “Brown on Black” will be on at Thistle Hall, Cuba Street, Wellington from Wednesday June 29 until Sunday, July 3.

D AY I N T H E Annie Reilly, manager at the Wainuiomata Community Hub and arts and crafts enthusiast What does a typical day involve for you? “Four days a week I’m here at the Wainuiomata Library and once a week I’m at the War Memorial Library catching up with things. Monday was a typical day for me starting with a debrief with the library team. Some emailing then over to the Nui FM team to see Bennett Pomana and Pepa Faulkner about the new equipment for the station. I then met with Cat Wilmer from Kokiri, who was dropping in to check on venues for their school holiday programmes. A quick lunch then a meeting with Esther Venning, who is the Make Stuff Happen Champion with the Wainuiomata Development Plan Steering Group. We discussed the 7 day makeover plan. This meeting was followed by another sorting the library’s book group booklist. A further meeting was held with Esther, Margaret Willard and Tania Snoep, Programmes team leader at the Hub. We were discussing a plan to locate and record local people and their stories about Wainuiomata. I drove home for dinner and returned to the

library for a meeting with various community group representatives to discuss developing a fantastic Wainui-Wide Rural Event.” What do you like to do outside of work? “I’m an artist. I like to do black and white drawings, I’ve illustrated some books. I do lots of arts and crafts- I used to be a knitwear designer in the 80s. I also like to do some work with genealogy.” Why do you love working in Wainuiomata? “It’s never dull. It’s a dynamic community, a strong community that wants to make changes and improve. I want to be part of that journey. I grew up in a similar place and my parents were very involved with the community. I think I’m following that heritage.  Do you know someone who would like to share their “Day in the Life”, let us know at

The Wainuiomata Pioneer Church Preservation Society held their annual general meeting at the weekend. Joyce Lockyer, of the society, said she looked forward to their upcoming projects. “The next big project for the Society will be the replacement of the Vestry behind the Church for which plans are being drawn up now. The community watched with great interest last year when the Church was repainted and we are sure will be equally enthusiastic about the commencement of Stage 3 of the restoration,” she said.

Designer takes on youth awards By Emma McAuliffe

One local woman has a special reason to celebrate the Hutt City Youth Awards- she designed the logo. The Hutt City Youth Awards are an annual event which was started in 2015 by a group of Hutt City residents who saw a need to celebrate youth in Lower Hutt. Last year’s winners included Wainuiomata’s Keegan O’KaneJones. This year the Hutt City Youth Awards got on board with main sponsor Weltec and decided to have their logo redesigned by a student. Keli-Ann Wilson, of Wainuiomata, came up with the winning WINNER: Keli-Ann Wilson displays her winning design with design, which involves eight different colours and patterns National List MP, Chris Bishop. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe

representing the eight different good values of youth. She said she chose to take part in the logo competition because it was important for her to recognise the good things youth do. “You always hear about the naughty stuff… there’s more to youth than that stuff,” she said, National List MP Chris Bishop, who is one of the judges of the awards, said picking the winning design was a “tough decision” but the group eventually went with Keli-Ann’s design because they liked the idea of the values. “[They’re the] values you look for in a talented young person. It’s a really cool way of looking at it,” he said. The 2016 Hutt City Youth Awards will be taking place later this year.

Power Up the Cancer Society The Cancer Society Wellington needs your help. Through its ‘Power Up’ campaign the Cancer Society hopes to raise $70,000 to cover the costs of 115 solar panels, which will produce a 30kW capacity for The Cancer Society’s Margaret Stewart House accommodation facility. The facility provides daily accommodation for up to 40 out-of-town patients having cancer treatment at the Wellington Blood and Cancer Centre, and is located on the grounds of Wellington Hospital. The Cancer Society’s chief

executive, Michael Smith, said the campaign came on the heels of a need to expand services in the face of an increased demand for them. “The upgrade to solar panels will save over $300,000 over the 25 year warranty period freeing up money for the Cancer Society to be spent on other essential cancer services. “We are asking the public for general donations or for businesses to buy a panel for $600 - buy three and with your 30 per cent tax deduction/rebate you really only pay for 2,” said Michael. Supporters of the project

include Mayor of Wellington Celia Wade-Brown, who said it was a great project, both environmentally and socially. “It will enable the Cancer Society to save money and redirect some of its operational funds to expand supportive care and health promotion services to the people of Wellington. “Solar panels also fit well in our Low Carbon Capital,” Ms Wade-Brown said. The Wainuiomata News will be tracking the Cancer Society’s process throughout its ‘Power Up’ campaign. Check in each week to see updates on fundraising efforts.

Rates set for the year ahead Rates were set for the year ahead at a meeting of the Hutt City Council last week. The average rates increase across all ratepayers has been set across at 2.7 per cent. The average rates increase of 2.7 per cent is the lowest of the territorial authorities in the Wellington region. Lower Hutt Mayor, Ray Wallace, said the council was “committed to seeing our city grow and this requires investment, but we don’t want to burden our community with unreasonable rates or debt increases”. “We believe we’ve struck a balance, and are pleased to have kept increases to rates at the lowest possible level. “We’ve enjoyed a great couple of years with the city-wide development of new facilities that help stimulate economic and social growth, and we are delighted that 84% of respondents agreed with Council continuing to invest in rejuvenation and infrastructure projects, as outlined in the Long Term Plan,” he said. Average residential lots should see themselves paying an extra $1.62 per week, average central businesses $2.51, average suburban businesses at $3.49, accommodation $14.61 and average rural $2.23.

Upcoming tournaments for local boxers By Emma McAuliffe

READY TO BOX: Aisea and Raymond will be taking on three tournaments in the next two months. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe

The Wainuiomata Boxing Club has been in the ring practising for some major tournaments. Two of the clubs winning boxers, Raymond Seumanu and Aisea Lealea have been selected to take part in the New Zealand National Tournament and the Golden Gloves Tournament in Australia. As part of the training for Nationals the club hosted a Training Camp on Sunday for 15 boys from around the Wellington region. Raymond, Aisea and nineyear-old James Clark were selected from the Wainuiomata club to take part.

School sporting update By Emma McAuliffe

Wainuiomata High School has had a vibrant week with many wins in different sports. The school came out on top in basketball with all three of the senior teams winning their games. The senior boys team won against Wellington College 65-63, the Girls took on Porirua and won 55-53 and the Juniors took on Aotea to win 80-79. The Premier 2 netball team had a loss against Upper Hutt 21-16. The collegiate 3, 7 and 9 teams all won

their games. Collegiate 7 had an especially impressive win against Naenae 4, winning 40-15. The Girls rugby team took on Mana and won 29-22. The Premier 2, 1XV team took on Kapiti and lost 42-17. The 1XV will be taking on Hutt Valley High School on Wednesday at the Hutt Recreation Grounds for the Co-Ed Cup. The Under 15s took on Mana and lost 38-24 and the U55s lost to Paraparaumu 70-5.

Top weekend for rugby By Emma McAuliffe

Rugby fans have cause for celebration after the Premiers made it to second on the Jubilee Cup tables after playing Upper Hutt at the weekend. Wainuiomata beat Upper Hutt 51-20 to reach their new place on the table. They are just two points behind frontrunners Oriental- Rongotai and a point ahead of Marist St Pats. Wainuiomata’s Josh Robertson-Weepu is the current top point scorer in the Jubilee cup,

having scored 43 points. The club had another reason to celebrate on Saturday as Greg Lealofi played his 100th match for the club. He was given his blazer at a special ceremony on Saturday night. Wainuiomata will be playing Tawa as the curtain raiser to the Hurricanes and the Blues on Saturday. Wainuiomata womens had a bye at the weekend- they will return to the field this week.

WHAT A WIN: Wainui takes on Upper Hutt. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe

Coaches Rob Cameron and Craig Bennett said it was great day and it was good to see their boys measure up to their competitors. “It was great to see our boys being the fittest of the lot,” Rob said. “It really stood out,” Craig added. The two said they were especially proud of James who boxed against someone three years his senior. “[James] smoked him,” Craig said. Raymond and Aisea will be taking on the Naenae Champs this weekend. Coach Rob Cameron said the duo had missed out on matchings for the previous two

tournaments so Naenae would be their last chance to prepare for the Nationals in July. Both of the boys currently have matchings, Raymond will be boxing against a current champion in his weight class from Dunedin whereas Aisea will be taking to the ring against a boxer from Auckland. Rob said he had “every confidence” Raymond would beat the current champion. Raymond and Aisea have also been chosen to head to Australia as part of the Wellington team for Golden Gloves. At 14-years-old Raymond will be one of the youngest people attending and will be going back to reclaim the title he won last year.

Close call for Manu Sina

CLOSE CALL: The Manu Sina 7s team. PHOTO: Facebook

The Manu Sina Sevens team has won two out of their three games at the Olympic Qualifier tournament in Dublin, Ireland. The team, which has two Wainuiomata women- Gene Solia-Gibb and Sieni Mose- on board, won their games against Zimbabwe, 57-5, and

Madagascar 22-10. They lost against Russia, 47-0. The teams’ hopes for Rio were dashed in the quarter finals after losing 26-0 to Kazakhstan and 28-5 to China in the playoff for fifth to eighth place.

Sports talk with Jacob Page... Warriors win NBA battle, lose war It's fair to say the Golden State Warriors will feel like that impatient girlfriend waiting for a proposal from a clueless boyfriend. For all of their time, effort and sacrifice in 2016, it doesn't mean a thing if you haven't got that ring. A history making best 73 wins and nine losses evaporated into obscurity after they failed to win the title, on Monday, losing a seven game finals series to the Cleveland Cavaliers. It's the first professional sports title for Cleveland since the 1960s The city is a proud sporting hub but it's sports fans have been subjected to choke acts and bad luck for half a century. That was until Monday.

Golden State Warriors were the best NBA team in history - now, not so much.. How can you be when you don't win the championship? Instead those championship rings go to Cleveland, a team who timed their run to perfection to beat the perfect team. The best team goes back, in my opinion to the 1995/96 Chicago Bulls. They lost one more regular season game than the Warriors but ultimately won the championship. Sport is about winning battles but ultimately wars. The Golden State Warriors won 73 battles but lost the one war they needed to win most.

Wins for junior teams
