A Newlands woman has set her sights high with her new company that was created to help local not-for-profit organisations. Lisa Glassey opened Travel Prefab in May which is a travel broker where people can book flights, book hotels, get travel insurance and hire cars – but there’s a twist. Instead of keeping the commission Lisa makes on booking holidays she will donate it to not-for-profit organisations in the Wellington region.

A 93-year-old Churton Park woman has achieved the Toastmasters award of Advanced Communicator (silver). Betty Meyers has been a member of the Capital Toastmasters Club for 10 years and had previously earned her Competent Leader Award. She kept toastmasters members enthralled with her description of what life was like in Wellington in the 1930s and during World War II when she trained to be a nurse. “We looked out at the harbour first thing in the morning, and it was full of warships. The US Marines had arrived”. Betty joined toastmasters through her love of marathons. She has run 21 and in her last one she finished first in the

Lisa has spent most of her life in the tourism and hospitality industry, working for many years with major airlines Air New Zealand and Emirates. “When I moved back to Wellington I told my husband I wanted to do something meaningful,” Lisa said. “I love Wellington and I want to support local community projects.” There are only three requirements to apply for funding from Travel Prefab. The project has to be local, not-for-profit and based around travel. Lisa decided to start off with the Wellington SPCA. The SPCA wanted to set up the Inspectorate Programme – an inspector exchange where they could send an inspector overseas to receive further training.

Highlighting issues 30 years on By Sharnahea Wilson

Courtenay Place will light up with artwork that both explores queer activism around the homosexual law reform 30 years ago and asks what queer activism is today. Artist Sian Torrington of Aro Valley found out her art would feature in the light boxes on Courtenay Place about a year and a half ago after making a submission. For nine months she has been drawing, writing, painting and taking photos for her work which would display the issues and opinions at the time of the law reform, as well as contemporary issues young people are face today. “We have come a long way but at the same time we haven’t,” Sian explained. Sian recently held an event at a park for young homosexual and transsexual people to write

down the issues they face each day. “Most of the issues were very relatable. It’s quite sobering to be listening to those stories,” she said. The lightboxes will involve 16 panels which will feature some of the writings of the young people in the park as well as submissions made to the government 30 years ago. The submissions come from the gay and lesbian archives and Sian said many of the submissions were made by people that weren’t affected by homophobia but who saw it as a human rights issue. “I looked for the right ways to tell a lot of different stories. I want to be part of effecting social change – and pull out threads of complicated stories.” She said the artwork would be displayed on a street where a lot of people had experienced homophobia and this was a

Top nutritionist to speak in Wellington A top New Zealand nutritionist and wellness expert is coming to Te Aro to share his knowledge on gut health with the locals. Ben Warren who was invited to do a Ted Talk, will hold a seminar next Wednesday as one in a series of seminars across the country. TED Talks are influential videos from expert speakers on education, business, science, technology and creativity. Ben first became interested in nutrition when he was working as a professional golf coach. “I had a back injury so I had to stop golf. Then after doing a few tests I was told I had a dairy

intolerance,” he explained. When Ben stopped having dairy his asthma went away, his stomach flattened and he felt significantly better. “I realised nutrition has such a huge impact on how you feel and I felt like everyone needed to know this information.” He became so interested in nutrition that he went on to get his Masters and is now sitting a PhD. For 12 years Ben has run a company called BePure which is focused on holistic health and nutrition. At next week’s seminar Ben will focus specifically on gut health which he considered extremely important given that one in five New Zealander’s suffer

from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. “Gut health and the microbiome are two of the largest growing areas of research in the field of health and wellness, however many New Zealander’s are unaware that the condition of our gut underpins all aspects of our health. “80 per cent of our immune system is housed in our gut, so if our gut is out of balance we are likely to see our immunity struggling.” It has been estimated that about 90 per cent of the body’s serotonin is made in the digestive track so Ben stressed that an unhealthy gut can have a big impact on mental health. Ben will take questions

throughout the seminar and will also hold a questions and answers session at the end. He will discuss the digestive system, problems and solutions.  The seminar will be held on Wednesday, July 27 from 7 – 9.30pm at Amora Hotel, Wellington. Book online at www. Door sales will also be available.

Helping others ‘Overcome’ depression By Sharnahea Wilson

Certain Ways

Five teenage boys hope to change the way young people look at depression with their new book titled Overcome. A group of Year 13 students from Onslow College put a book together for an NCEA Level 3 business assignment on depression which had a target audience of teenage males. Yang Xiao, Andrew Symmes, Morgan Thompson, Matthew Doogan and Grishin Muller are in the process of developing their product for the Young Enterprise Scheme. “We believe that there is a

Based in Boise, Idaho, New Zealand artists Caroline Earley and Kate Walker constantly find themselves caught between two worlds. Their Toi Pōneke exhibition Certain Ways explored these ideas – borders, boundary crossing and the construction of gender. “Having this exhibition at Toi Pōneke on the 30th anniversary of Fran Wilde’s Homosexual Law Reform Bill makes it that much more significant, especially for Kate, who was on the 1985 marches in Wellington, in support of that bill,” Caroline said.

massive issue with the acceptance and understanding of mental health among young New Zealanders, especially teen males,” Yang explained. The group decided to approach well-known New Zealanders who could offer advice and everyday people who could share their stories. Hunt for the Wilder People Director and ex-Onslow College student Taika Waititi, and Prime Minister John Key were among the list of people that would feature in the book. Morgan said teen males who suffered from depression were not as accepted as they should

be. “One in five people go through it, but a lot of people feel like they’re alone.” “Taika talked about how everyone goes through high and low points. He said just as we have summer we also have winter.” Grishin said the idea was to get stories from well-known kiwis who boys their age would look up to. “People might read it and think – if they can do it, so can I.” They wanted their book to be something young men could pick up and not be embarrassed

Ngaio on way to being rodent free By Eleanor Wenman MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Two men have started the hunt for rats, mice and weasels in the backyards of Ngaio. Jeremy Bloomfield and Gavin Kane have recently set Predator Free Ngaio up and the group has had an encouraging start. The pair has received support and information from both Predator Free groups neighbouring Ngaio in Crofton Downs and Khandallah. From these groups Jeremy learned some of the tricks of setting up a predator free group. “It gave me a picture, a bit of a model really and that helped a lot,” Jeremy said. In a Predator Free group, members would place simple snap traps in their backyards and would catch rats and similar

predators. Since then Jeremy and Gavin started recruiting people by reaching out on Neighbourly and Facebook. “It’s actually been quite good,” Jeremy said. The main goal for Predator Free Ngaio would be to get traps set up and running in about one in five households around Ngaio. The leafy nature of Ngaio has attracted native birds like the kereru and tui but predators like rats and weasels prey on them and their eggs. Concern for the environment was not the only motivation for people to join. “Other people may want to get rid of rats because they don’t like them and they’re chewing on their wires or they might think they’re a hygiene risk,”

Jeremy Bloomfield (left) and Gavin Kane show off one of the traps to be used by Predator Free Ngaio.

Jeremy said. Predator Free Ngaio would be supplied traps from the group in Crofton Downs. Predator Free Ngaio has planned to bring more people into the group by using the concept of paying it forward. “So if you come and get a trap & &

from us, it’ll be like ‘fantastic to have you, here you go here’s a free trap and would you see if you could recruit one more person?’” he said.  If you would like to join the group or want further information contact




about reading. The boys have also had help from their mentor Andrew Morrison who is the programme manager for men’s wellbeing at the Mental Health Foundation. They are now trying to raise money so they can donate copies of their books to colleges in the region. If that goes well they will look to branch out to other regions.  If you would like to donate to this fantastic cause visit resilience or to get in contact with the group you can email Resilience.wellington@gmail. com.

Ritchie joins race for Wellington mayoralty By Sharnahea Wilson

The nominations for this year’s local government elections are open and Northern Ward Councillor Helene Ritchie has thrown her hat in the ring for mayor. At the weekend Wellington’s longest serving councillor announced she would be running for Mayor of the Wellington City Council in the 2016 elections. Ms Ritchie has spent 30 years on the Wellington City Council including one term as the first female Deputy Mayor. She believed experience was important at a local government level. “Experience counts. I will inject new energy into Wellington. “I am outspoken for the ordinary person, and I bring effective, energetic leadership and sound governance based on my extensive experience,” she said. Ms Ritchie stood for Mayor once before and said it was 10 years after she stood that the first female Mayor of Wellington was elected.



Ms Ritchie said her vision for Wellington was to be an elegant, liveable, a ffordable, city that would be the greenest in the world with a “people’s Town Hall strengthened and opened”. She would also aim for the Town Belt to be a world heritage site. Ms R itch ie sa id as Mayor of Wellington she would listen and lead. She said there would be “sensible rates for essential services, no more silly promises, no more slush funds [and] no more reckless spending or rates funding of private companies”. “I have done the hard yards – it is the right time for the City the Council, and for me.” Ms Ritchie will stand as an Independent. She will also stand again as a Northern Ward Councillor and will aim to keep her seat on the District Health Board. The councillor said she would take the opportunity in the council recess to take a personally funded trip to Vancouver “the greenest city” to see

Greens to launch bold Wellington transport plan Local Green Party candidates are hoping for a greener Wellington transport should they be re-elected in the local body elections in October. As part of the Green Party’s Wellington transport action plan candidates would look to discount public transport fares, have free Wi-Fi in all transport hubs in Wellington, have electric bus and car fleets and more central city and suburban green spaces. The action plan was launched at a public event at the Sustainability Trust on Tuesday night. Green Party transport spokesperson Julie Anne Genter MP said Wellington’s congestion would not be solved by a few expensive motorway projects. “We need investment in fast, clean and affordable public transport, and we need

Green councillors to make that happen.” Wellington Regional Councillor Paul Bruce said this would include a 25 per cent discount on buses off-peak, 50 per cent off-peak student discounts, and free bus transfers, in response to public concern about the cost of public transport. Wellington Regional Councillor Sue Kedgley said the party candidates would also look to replace diesel buses with modern electric buses within 10 years. Wellington City Councillor Iona Pannett said many policies so far announced by other candidates relied on outdated 20th century ways of thinking. “As global temperatures increase, we need more people walking, cycling and taking public transport and green spaces and less asphalt.”

Community Centres in your neighbourhood Over the coming weeks, the Independent Herald will be profiling each community centre in Wellington's Northern and Western Suburbs. This week we had a chat to Fei Gao and Pippa Cubey from the Newlands Community Centre on Batchelor Street. By Sharnahea Wilson

In 2009 the Newlands Community Centre was built by the Wellington City Council to provide spaces for locals to meet up, host events, attend classes and watch performances. This centre in the heart of Newlands features a lounge with books and computers that acts as a drop in centre from 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday. “A couple of groups like to meet in the lounge too,” centre coordinator Pippa Cubey said. As well as the lounge where people can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee, there is also a large hall, a youth room for people to enjoy afterschool, a large meeting room and a small meeting room. The different sized rooms cater to different services and activities. Centre coordinator Fei Gao said the youth room is utilised during the day by people who enjoy ballroom dancing classes. “Upstairs there is a small room for social workers, community lawyers and a justice of the peace,” Fei explained. “We also have church groups who use the space upstairs and there are social English classes.” Pippa said it was important to have a space like this that all members of the community could utilise. “For some people it is a lifeline – a place to come where they can have a cup of tea

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville a green Subaru Legacy stationwagon parked during the night in Macaulay Street was stolen. A truck parked over the weekend in Rotoiti Street was broken into and a compactor was stolen from the compartment at the rear of the cab. A red Mazda station wagon parked in the yard of a vehicle repair shop while the battery was being recharged was entered. The offender switched

off the charging and stole the key from the ignition. Two vehicle service stations located on Johnsonville Road were victims of petrol theft when the vehicles filled up and drove off without paying. CCTV footage identifying the vehicles is available but one is known to have been using stolen registration plates. In Newlands the padlock on a builders shed was cut to gain access. Keys taken from the shed

were used to access a house on the site which also was entered and some tools stolen. The mail box of a house in Bracken Road was stolen. A heavy driveway gate chain was removed from a property in Lyndfield Lane. In Khandallah a house in Torwood Road was entered via a forced front door. Three laptop computers, assorted jewellery and food items were stolen. In Ngaio a shed at the rear

of a house in Orari Street was broken into via a jemmied door. A quantity of contractor’s tools were stolen. A black leather wallet containing bank cards was accidentally left on the counter of a dairy in Khandallah Road. The owner returned shortly afterwards but the wallet had gone. A black Arrow Moped parked on the grass verge covered by a tarpaulin in front of a house in Ngaio Gorge Road had

its registration plate stolen. A black Nissan Navara Utility van parked on the street in Rothsay Road was broken into by forcing the rear canopy open. A number of power and hand tools and sports gear were stolen. Wooden posts being used in the construction of a bridge across a stream on private property, to give public access to the Bells Track (nearby Awarua Street) were stolen.

Heritage trees for historic Halfway House Medlar and Tom Putt apple were among the rare varieties of fruit trees planted in the heritage farm orchard at the Halfway House in Glenside on Saturday. Claire Bibby, who leads a group of heritage gardeners, said planting an orchard of old variety fruit trees had captured the imagination of the community. “Sixteen fruit trees were donated by people who have a connection to Glenside and we are still getting gift offers. Our youngest planter was Harriet Lester, who is three, and our oldest was a Glenside resident who is 87.” The heritage gardeners were creating a farm garden for the historic Halfway House in Glenside. The garden used heritage plants and flowers that would have been in the country pre-1900. Claire said the types of trees planted were found locally in early settler orchards. They were either listed as growing in the Stebbings farm orchard, who came to the area in 1863, or were listed in an 1878 fruit tree catalogue of W W McCardle, who supplied the Wellington market. The fruit trees planted were plums, apples, pears, apricot, quince and medlar. The medlar dates back 3000 years. Claire said she was introduced to it by Max Dorset, who had one growing at Ivy Bank Farm, the former Nott house in Glenside. “He picked the fruit and let it blet, or rot, in a bed of dry straw in his attic. It’s a winter fruit paste, best eaten with cheese.” She said the Tom Putt apple dated back to 1780 and was a favourite of the Stebbings’

children, who describe it as ‘a perfect apple’ glowing red with pink flesh and ‘with flavour out of this world’. Among the planters on the day was Northern Ward Councillor Helene Ritchie who planted four trees. “I bought and planted four – one for each grandchild and to remind me and them of the bountiful orchard we had in Ohariu Valley.”  Anyone interested in participating in heritage gardening can contact Claire on 022 186 5714 or email info @ glenside.

Windows 10 deadline looms

Nick Leggett welcomes baby boy hours after mayoral campaign launch By Sharnahea Wilson

The morning after his official campaign launch Wellington mayoral candidate Nick Leggett and his wife Emily welcomed a baby boy into the world. Tane Frederick Pita Leggett arrived two weeks early on July 7 via caesarean and weighed 7 pounds 6 ounces. “He was a lot smaller than we anticipated,” Emily said. She said it was quite overwhelming at the time but she and Mr Leggett had a huge amount of support from family. “We had about 13 visitors on the first day. We both have big families.”

Emily said she was glad the pair and her 11-year-old daughter had been settled into their new house in Johnsonville before the baby arrived. Mr Leggett said they had only found out the new due date two days in advance but there were no dramas on the day and it was fantastic to have a few days with Tane in the hospital. He said his parents had become grandparents twice in two weeks with his brother having a baby girl overseas just a couple of weeks before Tane arrived. It will now be a balancing act for the current Mayor of Porirua with having a new born baby in the middle of a big campaign but he said he

would still be giving the campaign everything he had. About 200 people turned out to his launch at the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club on Wednesday July 6. “There were a good mix of Wellingtonians there and people seem to be responding well to a simple message,” Mr Leggett said. He said he was determined to focus on issues such as roading, infrastructure, water storage and connecting Wellington with the rest of the world “rather than the glossy pet projects other candidates have”. Mr Leggett said his plan now was to continue to get out into the community, meet people and knock on doors.

Whatever your requirements and budget, they have an unbiased approach and will ensure that you get what you want. Located in Kaiwharawhara, the Wellington Fireplace professional showroom houses an impressive array of some of the most efficient gas and wood appliances, including the Pyroclassic IV. Pyroclassic Fires have lead the market inefficiency and clean air excellence for more than 30 Years. What makes a Pyroclassic IV unique is its cylindrical ceramic fire chamber, which at 35mm thick, retains heat like

a kiln. This is a game changer from the industry standard fire bricks, which are incapable of this level of heat storage. As a result, this is the only clean air approved fire to provide a genuine 12hour+ overnight burn. A Pyroclassic IV is suitable for homes up to 250m2 and provides both radiant and convection heating. Pyroclassic Fires are capable of more than just heating with a 10mm steel top plate perfect for cooking and an optional output 3.7kw wetback , providing a sustainable and affordable solution for water heating. Another reason customers gravitate towards us is our colour range . “We have more than 100 colours available so there is no shortage of choice! “says Managing Director of Pyroclassic Fires Ric Chalmers.

The Micro Deluxe Range of Scooters launch on Friday, July 16 brought out local entrepreneurial mums in support. Marketing manager for Micro Scooters Hannah McHalick encouraged like-minded local businesswomen to attend the launch of its deluxe scooter range. “It was great fun, great to meet our lovely guests and their children, and to see the children all Looking cool: Ngaio's Jana Tocker and her son Harrison, 3.

Midwinter cabaret show at Cashmere Home Enliven’s Cashmere Home in Johnsonville was transformed into a 1920s theatre recently for the home’s very own midwinter cabaret show. A professional cabaret performer who goes by the stage name SheShe Velour used a mixture of music, dance and drama to entertain the residents of Cashmere Home and sister-site Cashmere Heights Home, along with their friends and family. Cashmere Home recreation officer Liz Rivadelo says the performer used a range of props and had multiple costume changes during the show. “We’ve had SheShe Velour visit once before and the residents absolutely loved her. They wouldn’t stop talking about it so we hired her again and turned it into a big event,” says Liz. Residents and staff decorated the home and dressed up in the 1920s theme to make the evening even more special.

Norths show class to win cup tie North Wellington football is at an all time high with the club’s premier side winning their way through to the quarter finals of the prestigious Chatham Cup with a 3-2 away win against Palmerston North Marist on Sunday afternoon. North Wellington had been in outstanding form in the earlier Cup rounds but looked in trouble early against their highly fancied rivals who took a 1-0 lead from a direct free kick after just 12 minutes. All season North Wellington have shown courage under pressure and again they fought back to level with a headed goal from last round’s hattrick hero Kieran Cripps. Shortly after the half time

break Cripps struck again with a well taken penalty to make it 2-1. Club newcomer Shohei Watanabe sealed the deal for North Wellington in the 58th minute with a superb header to silence the large Palmerston North Marist crowd. A late goal by the home side narrowed the margin but the game was in safe keeping for North Wellington who reached the quarter finals for the first time since 1997. Club president Grant Stephen had predicted a bold showing from the club’s young team and he was well pleased with the effort. “They all played great out there and did the club proud.

We have hit a purple patch of form and the whole club is riding high. The Reserves win was huge on the weekend and the recent signing of Ben Sigmund as our Football Development Manager is more great news for the club,” Stephen said. The qua r ter final draw will take place this week and the other seven clubs are Miramar, Christchurch team Cashmere Technical, Auckland teams Birkenhead United, Forrest Hill Milford, Waitakere City, Three Kings United and Dunedin side Caversham. Stephen is hoping the draw will work out for the club. “Ideally we would like a

home match and any of the remaining sides are top class so it is a challenge we are looking forward to.” Nor th Wellington Reser ves a re a lready champions of Capital 3 division with two matches to play. O n Sat u rd ay t he Reser ves t rounced Marist 5-0. The win, their twelfth from 14 games, promotes North Wellington Reserves into the Capital 2 division for next season.

Player suffers heart attack Saturday's premier club rugby match between Johnsonville and Paremata/ Plimmerton at Helston Park was marred by a serious health issue suffered by a Johnsonville player during the game. The match was temporarily held up during the second spell after Johnsonville fullback Irisa Ta'ala suffered a heart attack. He staggered from the field and collapsed

on the sideline then lapsed in and out of consciousness. An ambulance was called im mediately and medics determined that he should be taken to hospital where he later underwent surgery. He was recovering in hospital earlier this week. Ta'ala, a nephew of former Johnsonville premier players Sene and Laifa Ta'ala, started the season with the Johnson-

ville reserve grade team the Cripples but was later called into the premier side. Johnsonville went down 2215 to Paremata/ Plimmerton after the scores were tied up 10-10 at halftime. Scorers for the locals were prop Matt Mullany and locks Fraser McLaren and Anthony Pettett. Johnsonville will finish their season this Saturday when they take on unbeaten Hard-

Onslow rugby reunion Calling all Onslow College 1st XV rugby players from around 1978 to 1982. After 30 odd years ex-Onslow College students Roger Barr and Gavin Donnelly are attempting to track down former players and supporters for a reunion. He said toward the end of the year the current 1st XV team used to face off against the old boys from the previous two years. “It was great fun but generally the school won through better combination and skill,” Roger said.

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

Stale, old Super Rugby Four New Zealand teams in the eight-team Super Rugby playoffs shows how dull the competition has become. The Kiwi franchises are so far ahead of their Australian and South African rivals, that with the exception of the New Zealand derbies, the competition is boring and stale. There were four Trans-Tasman matches last week, all won by Kiwi teams with a points differential of more than 200-60. I long for the days of strong competition, when a trip to face the Brumbies in Canberra was a formidable prospect, when getting a win in South Africa was treasured. It feels like now you can miss all those games and not miss much. There is too much rugby, too many teams who simply can't foot it.

Like most things, more teams equals more money but a watered-down product. The answer - Australia and South Africa need to lift their game and work harder at grass-roots level to keep players. Argentina and Japan need time. The Jaguares have potential to be contenders in a few years, Japan I doubt will ever amount to much. It's important to understand that New Zealand is dominating this competition while playing each other regularly and taking competition points off each other as a result and it comes during a transition in All Blacks rugby. Great players have retired, yet there's been no stopping the New Zealand wave of dominance. Competition creates cash, the sameold, same old creates disinterest.
