Restoring Miramar’s Peninsula

By Nikki Papatsoumas

A Miramar resident is doing his bit to restore ecological health to the Miramar Peninsula by bringing back its missing species. Miramar ecological restoration group, Te Motu Kairangi, plants native trees along Miramar’s Pen-

insula in an effort to re-establish native flora and fauna in the area. Te Motu Kairangi was the original name given to the Miramar Peninsula, meaning ‘Precious Island’ and it was once teaming with native bush and birdlife. Continued on page 2

Restoring Miramar’s Peninsula Continued from page 1 However, after the Europeans settled most of the bush was burnt down to make way for gardens and grazing areas for cattle and sheep. Project coordinator of the group, Joakim Liman, now wants to see the area transformed to its former glory by planting native trees and creating awareness in the community.

Joakim began working on the project in 2011 and estimates he has planted more than 7000 trees, including kohekohe and Nikau, across the area in the last six years. He said plants were supplied to him by the Wellington City Council and from Forest and Bird. As well as this, he grew many plants himself. “Everything is eco-sourced

of volunteers regenerating Miramar’s coastline. He said in particular, the peninsula was missing a lot of canopy species of tree and if these were re-instated wildlife would naturally flock back to the area. “It’s already making a difference and we are already seeing the results. We are planting these species and then we come back and see wildlife feeding on berries on a tree we have planted,” he said. “We still have a long way to go.” As well as this, Joakim and his volunteers also worked with local residents in an effort to establish back yard conservation. Joakim said he would like to see 25 per cent of local gardens in the area be made up of native plants and volunteers were happy to visit local homes to discuss which plants were best suited to the conditions.  For more information, head to

and we don’t use anything from outside of Wellington,” Joakim said. He said it was important to introduce eco-sourced plants into the area, as they could easily adapt to the conditions and flourish.

Pool visitors urged to take care Visitors to Wellington pools are being reminded to stay out of the water after suffering from stomach upsets. Porirua’s Arena Aquatic Centre was closed at the weekend, after confirmation that five cases of

cryptosporidiosis were linked to the pool. With this in mind, Wellington City Council’s recreation facilities manager, Julian Todd, asked people to stay away from the city’s pools if they had been ill with diarrhoea or stomach

upsets, for at least a couple of weeks. Julian said staff from Wellington City Council pools would work closely wit h Reg iona l P ubl ic Health and with Porirua City Council to keep an eye on the new ‘crypto’

outbreak. “But our main advice is – please don’t come to our pools if you’ve been sick in the past fortnight. If you do you’ll just put the health of other people at risk and also possibly cause our pools to be closed.”

Celebrating women in police

inbrief news Meet with mayoral candidate

By Nikki Papatsoumas

Wellington mayoral candidate Jo Coughlan will host a meet-and-greet at Park Kitchen in Miramar on Sunday, July 31, at Franziska Seatoun in Seatoun on Sunday, August 7, at Blue Belle Cafe in Island Bay on Sunday, August 14 and at Spruce Goose in Lyall Bay on Sunday, August 21. Head along to discuss your thoughts on what you would like to see for the future of Wellington.

The integral role women have played in New Zealand policing will be celebrated next week. A special parade will take place in central Wellington on Monday to celebrate 75 years

of women in policing. The parade will be led by Police Commissioner Mike Bush, Minister of Police Judith Collins and victims’ advocate and New Zealand Police wing patron Louise Nicholas. It will also feature around 800 police officers and police

staff from across the country. The event is a culmination of a national torch relay which began late last month. Two halves of the torch, one from Cape Reinga and one from Bluff, have since passed through all 12 police districts. They will be joined together

Save yourself from a stroke The Capital and Coast District Health Board is inviting people to come along to Wellington Hospital to get their pulse checked from 10am to 4pm today. Doctor Matthew Webber, said an irregular pulse is the hallmark of Atrial Fibrillation (AF) – an irregular heart rhythm that causes poor blood flow, is linked to coronary heart disease, and increases the risk of stroke. “Getting your pulse checked takes only a few minutes out of your day – a few minutes that may prevent a stroke later down the track. We encourage people to come into the hospital to see us.”

A parade will take place on Monday to celebrate women in policing.

U3A discussion group U3A stands for University of the Third Age, and is a global organisation that supports learning and social activities for people in the third age. The Island Bay chapter of the group hosts a weekly social get together with different speakers each week on fascinating subjects followed by tea or coffee and discussion. Meet-ups take place every Thursday afternoon at the Island Bay Community Centre from 1.30pm.

Yoga for mums Yoga classes targeted at mums and bubs take place at the Island Bay community centre every Tuesday and Thursday from 9.30am to 10.30am and every Wednesday from 8pm to 9pm. Mums and dads are encouraged to bring their babies along to develop strength, tone, flexibility, relieve tension and stress and learn to move with more awareness.

as one and carried in Monday’s parade by one of the first female police officers in New Zealand, Marie Storey, who joined in 1943, and one of the police force’s newest female recruits. Police Commissioner Mike Bush said the parade was not only a fitting way to end the national relay - it was an opportunity for the public to join in the celebrations. “Seventy five years is a significant milestone and I will be immensely proud to walk alongside just some of the many fantastic police staff, both men and women from around New Zealand,” he said. “Over the last couple of months many staff have been engaging with their communities in activities to mark the 75th anniversary, they are passionate advocates for police and have showcased police as a great career choice for women.”  The parade will start from Civic Square at 12.15pm on Monday August 1 and will travel down Mercer St, onto Willis St then down Lambton Quay to Parliament, where it will be welcomed by the New Zealand Police Kapa Haka group.

Former mayor recognised Former Mayor of Wellington, Kerry Prendergast, has been recognised for her commitment to local government. Ms Prendergast was awarded the ‘Outstanding Contribution to Local Government’ award at Local Government New Zealand’s conference earlier this week. The awards, now in their third year, recognise and celebrate the outstanding leadership role local government plays within

communities. Ms Prendergast entered politics in 1986 when she was elected to the Tawa Borough Council. This sparked a 24 year career in local government, including nearly 20 years on the Wellington City Council with three terms as mayor. Ms Prendergast said it was almost inevitable she would go into local government. Her father was on the Tawa Borough

Council long before she was elected and had always advocated for community service. “You get to meet so many people and you get to give back,” she said. “Giving back was one of the values instilled in me as a child, particularly from my father. I was always raised to believe you should give back to your community. “ Among the council achievements under her leadership was

establishing the city’s identity as “Creative Wellington – Innovation Capital”, the effects of which are still seen today. Ms Prendergast also cites other highlights as securing $220 million for social housing, creating the waterfront boulevard of trees from the stadium to the Michael Fowler Centre, adding 20 sculptures to the city, and working on the ASB Sports Centre in Kilbirnie.

Calling all sweet-toothed locals

Chocolate Lab Cupcakes

By Nikki Papatsoumas

Makes 1 dozen cupcakes

Keen bakers have their wooden spoons and recipes at the ready, in preparation for the SPCA’s annual Cupcake Day. Sweet-toothed locals will join the fight against animal cruelty on August 15 by donning aprons, baking cupcakes and selling them to friends, family and colleagues to support the annual fundraiser for the SPCA. Among those to lend a hand this year is Island Bay local Sondra Bacharach. Sondra’s family has been volunteering for the Wellington SPCA for the last three years, fostering cats and kittens for the organisation before they are adopted into their new loving homes. So far, her family have fostered close to 40 cats and kittens. Sondra teaches philosophy at Victoria University, while her children attend Island Bay School. She has participated in Cupcake Day for the last three years but this year decided to sweeten things up with an old fashioned bake-off. Students from her minority in philosophy and women in philosophy groups will square off against a group of children from Island Bay School to see who can bake the most cupcakes and raise the most money. Sondra said in particular, she believed Cupcake Day was a great way

to teach children the SPCA’s important values. “It gives children a great opportunity to be involved and one of the best things children have is a large amount of empathy. “It’s just a lovely way to be able to teach children about what’s going on.” Last year Cupcake Day raised over $50,000 for Wellington SPCA, and all money raised went towards helping animals in its care. Wellington SPCA chef executive Steve Glassey said this year the organisation was once again looking for cupcake cooks of all ages and baking levels to take part. “Beginner or expert baker, the SPCA Cupcake Day is for everyone who wants make a real difference to the lives of abused, neglected and abandoned animals that need our help.” Steve said Wellington SPCA did not receive any direct government funding for its services, so the money raised by the community would help fund the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of the thousands of animals in need of the organisations help each year.  To register to take part in Cupcake Day, head to www.spcacupcakeday. and click register, the select Wellington SPCA as your local centre. You can also donate to the SPCA, set up a personalised fundraising page and return your funds through the website.

Ingredients: 1 cup all - purpose flour 1/3 cup cocoa powder 3/4 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1/2 cup soft brown sugar 1/2 cup white sugar 1 SPCA Blue Tick egg 1/2 cup of milk 1/4 cup of canola oil 1 tsp vanilla 1/2 cup boiling water

Method: 1. Preheat the oven to 180oC conventional or 160oC fan-force. 2. Line a 12 hole muffin tray with paper cases. Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl, then add the sugars and sift in. Add the SPCA Blue Tick egg, milk, oil and vanilla then beat with a mixer until combined. 3. Scrape the sides of the bowl then add the boiling water and mix until just combined (the batter will be runny). 4. Pour the batter into a measuring cup (it’s easier and cleaner than a spoon) and pour evenly into each paper case until filled (don’t over fill or the mixture will overflow). 5. Place into the oven and bake for 20-22 minutes or until a tester in the centre comes out clean.

A voice for Berhampore residents By Nikki Papatsoumas

on establishing the group. She said the association was born from a need to bring the community together and give it a unified voice. “We have a diverse community here in Berhampore and we want to focus on bringing people together.” A community group has been on the cards for Berhampore since the Centennial Community Centre was opened to the public earlier this year. Berhampore resident Grant Smith has lived in the area for 20 years and has been chairing meetings with other residents, working on establishing the association for the past few months. “It is something that I have wanted for a long time, especially more recently given what happened in Island Bay, where the council was able to do what it wanted. “That is the sort of thing I don’t want to happen for Berhampore, I want us to have a voice.” Southern ward councillor David Lee said it was a great opportunity to put Berhampore “back on the map”.

“Unfortunately the area suffers from being too close to Newtown and Island Bay. There is a huge opportunity for this group to now focus on branding Berhampore.” Southern ward councillor Paul Eagle said he was a fan of any mechanism that enabled a community or neighbourhood to come together and make decisions on the things that mattered most to them. "It's been a long time coming for Berhampore - they're not Newtown south nor are they Island Bay north. “They have their own identity and needs and the new residents' group will make sure they're visible. More importantly, it gives local people a voice on matters particularly when dealing with organisations like the council for example.” The group hoped to have themselves registered as an incorporated society within the next two months.  For more information on how you can be involved, head to the Berhampore Community Association Networks Facebook page.

We are going to have quite an inexperienced council.” Mr Foster, who was also the chair of the council’s transport and urban development committee said if elected, he would continue to focus on the ‘Let’s Get Wellington Moving’ initiative, while also continuing with the council’s resilience and predator-free work he had been

advocating for. He also said he wanted to ensure that ratepayers’ money was spent responsibly. “Certain ideas that have been thrown about come with very large price tags. I want to make sure we pace ourselves in terms of what we spend. “I don’t want rates to keep going up.” Mr Foster said he held off announcing he would be seeking the mayoral chains because he was busy focusing on the job at hand. “I believe we have a job to do and three years is a short time anyway. Some of my colleagues

Marching to the beat By Nikki Papatsoumas

The powerful discipline of Japanese ensemble drumming has people marching to a synchronised beat across the capital. Ta i ko is t he creative, powerful, and physically demanding practice of Japanese ensemble drumming. It incorporates movement and rhythm using the drummer’s whole body to create powerful performances that are known for commanding audiences. Jessie G ibbs fou nde d the Japanese drum team, Narukami, in 2014 and the team now performs at events across the capital including Cuba Dupa and the capital’s first Night Noodle Markets. As well as this, Jessie runs taiko classes for beginners and experienced drummers of all ages. Traditional taiko were made from the trunks of trees, skinned with cow hide tacked on to the finished drum body which stands a waist height. Jessie’s students use a less traditional taiko, made of wine barrels and fibre glass, topped with cow skin. Jessie said she became involved in taiko around eight years ago, while living in Palmerston North. She later became the first

non-Japanese captain to lead Palmerston North’s IPC Kodama Japanese Drum Team since its conception in 1990. Jessie’s talent has led her to work full-time teaching classes and performing with the Narukami team here in Wellington. Jessie said the beauty of taiko was that you did not need musical knowledge to participate, as it could be taught by sound and song and did not involve reading music. She said taiko was more than just playing an instrument – there was a huge physical aspect to it. “It is exercise and music and you have to work as a team. Because of that you become good friends with people in the group as well. “It can be harder than it looks but it’s not the rhythm that is the hard part. It’s the movement and playing cohesively while you are performing.” She sa id a nyone who wanted to join her classes did not need their own drum, and she encouraged anyone interested to head along and give it a go.  For more information on classes and performances, head to or email Jessie at

Hataitai local history


The name Hataitai originated with the syndicate which sub-divided it for building in 1901, and derives from Whataitai, the ancient Maori name for present-day Miramar. The ridge of the hill was thought to represent the petrified remains of the great taniwha (sea monster) Whataitai, one of the two creatures who helped form the harbour of Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington Harbour). When one taniwha broke through the rock that separated the lake from Cook Strait, the waters rushed out, leaving Whataitai stranded on rocks.

Hataitai local business, Parsons & Associates, was first established back in the early 1930’s by a local man Len Parsons. After serving their apprenticeship with the company, registered electrical inspectors Mark and Richard decided to keep the Parsons and Associates legacy alive by purchasing into the business and growing the company into the formidable local business it is today, still serving out of their local Hataitai offices 85 years on. Mark and Richard, along with a friendly team of six fully registered tradesmen, three apprentices and two lovely part time office ladies - including their two little helpers, T-Rex the Jack Russell and Benson the Black Labrador - is ready to assist the local and wider community with all their electrical needs.

• Hataitai is one of Wellington’s eastern suburbs, lying between Mt Victoria and the Miramar peninsula. Main access from the city is through Mt Victoria via the traffic tunnel, or by bus through the bus tunnel. • Hataitai is on important transport links between the central city and Wellington International Airport. • Character villas and bungalows abound. Most of the 1752 dwellings were built between 1900 and 1940, have been refurbished and are owneroccupied.

Demolition underway for Salvation Army Demolition work is well underway in Newtown, with a large block of shops being torn down over the last month along Riddiford St, between Normanby and Donald McLean St. The work is to make way for the Salvation Army’s new multi-million dollar base. The new complex will accommodate the Salvation Army’s Newtown Church, its Family Store, Hope Centre and the bulk of its central Wellington services. Work on the $17.5 million project will continue throughout the year and is expected to be completed by September 2017. PHOTO CREDIT: Nikki Papatsoumas

Q: What do you do to keep healthy?

Chris Carey-Smith Te Aro “I bike everywhere. I ride in all kinds of weather to and from work, and other places as well.”

Renee Rushton Newtown “I try and eat really well, with lots of fresh produce and minimal sugar. I also try to be really active by going for lots of walks and getting outside.”

Great offence Dear Ed, I took great offence at reading the letter (CSN July 21) from Patrick Morgan of Te Aro / Newtown and Cycle Aware notoriety. The man obviously has an over inflated opinion of himself and his status as a citizen of Wellington. His claims that “he

had never seen kids cycling along The Parade until the cycle way was built” are just blatant lies. But what would he know – he doesn’t live here. His patronising stance that “change can be hard but people get used to it” is simply not acceptable given the toxicity created by WCC

and Cycle Aware around the wretched cycleway within the community. Thanks to Patrick Morgan I believe he’s taken the public's attitude towards cycling and cyclists back decades. As a cyclist I feel shame at being supposedly represented by this man who is obviously so clearly

out of touch with the vast majority of Wellingtonians opinions. Bring on the elections I’m sure the results will be a crystal clear message back to the Wellington City Council. Steve Cooper Island Bay

A green thumb at Kilmarnock Heights Home Rain or shine, Kilmarnock Heights Home resident Kevin Garrett can be found tending to the trees and shrubs on the grounds of the Berhampore rest home. It’s no mean feat, 4,500 native plants were planted on a 3,000 square metre section of the property last year after the area was damaged by a large slip in 2013. “I look after the whole area. I’m out there every morning after breakfast weeding around the plants, I go back in for morning tea, and then I’m back out again before I go in for lunch,” says Kevin. Despite the winter weather Kevin gets out in the garden whenever he can. “I have a shed out there if the weather turns bad, but a little rain doesn’t bother me. It’s good having a job to do. It makes me feel useful.” Recreation officer Annelize Steyn says when Kevin first moved to Kilmarnock Heights Home five years ago he spent most of him time indoors, doing jigsaw puzzles and reading the newspaper, but having a project has taken him outside to do what he loves. “Having the planting project here has transformed his life,” says Annelize. “It has given him a purpose and a reason to get out of bed every day. He’s adopted it as his job, and best of all he’s getting fresh air, exercise and is doing something he enjoys.” Annelize says Enliven truly believes having meaningful activity and a sense of purpose is important to elders wellbeing. “Kevin shows people around and feels really proud of his project and the contribution he has made to the home. It has given him such a focus and it’s just lovely how he has beautified the site even more. His enthusiasm has encouraged volunteers to give him a hand too.”

She says many of the elders who live at Kilmarnock Heights Home have little jobs they like to do to make a contribution to their home. “It makes them feel worthwhile and like they are making a difference. It’s part of our model of care,” says Annelize. “Some residents enjoy folding the kitchen linen because that’s what they would do for their family. Some feed the animals every day. It could be setting the tables with the fine China for afternoon tea, making birthday cards for fellow residents or baking treats for the home and the community. It’s the little things that give us a feeling of giving back and having independence.”  For more information about Kilmarnock Heights Home, located at 20 Morton Street in Berhampore, call 0508 ENLIVEN (that’s 0508 36 54 83) or visit

LETTERS to the editor Demolition Blues Dear Ed, As a Newtownite I was sad to see the demolition of the houses on Normanby St, in my opinion the dwellings could have been relocated and

refurbished, as were the houses of similar vintage from upper Cuba St now lining Karo Dr, a condition of the land sale could have ensured that 2 Normanby

Street, possibly the oldest house was restored in situ, as part of the new landscape. So too the hundreds of Newtown made bricks dumped when the shops

on Riddiford St came down could have been sold on site, or used to create a plaza and footpath on the Normanby St frontage, bit of a nod to 150

Myopic view

Elections Dear Ed, The ratepayers now can focus on who they want to elect, and clearly a lot will be dumped because of the Island Bay cycle way mess, but also what comes to my mind is that there is a huge amount of high level staff that had their concepts, perception and lack of real engagement with the community, that should be asked to be accountable. I remember in times past, that the CEO holds responsibility (the

buck stops with him), so surely we should also be calling for resignations of these high level overpaid council staff who got it so wrong, and do so in many other projects as well. I wish the paper would do articles on this top level group of officers (who are supposed to serve the ratepayers) as the clearly are very secret persons. Rose Wu Kilbirnie

Dear Ed, I heartily concur with Dr John Robinson (CSN July 14) regarding the restoration of The Parade to the original design and completely disagree with the risible claims made by Simon Edmonds (CSN July 21). Edmonds is incorrect on a number of levels – too many to bring to your readers attention. It is well known that Edmonds is a loud and vocal advocate for the infamous cycle way

Calling all passionate people People with a passion for the future of the Wellington region are being encouraged to put their energy and ideas to work at the Greater Wellington Regional Council.

Council chief executive, Greg Campbell, said the next three years would be crucial to Wellington, as decisions that needed to be made would affect Wellingtonians for years to come. “I encourage all voters to study the report – and to consider whether they, or someone they know, would stand up to be nominated,” he said. “Wellington region is a fantastic place to live and do business. Greater Wellington’s work is about ensuring we’re also a strong and resilient region that will continue to thrive and get even better.

“To achieve this, we need the infrastructure that can withstand the extreme effects of climate change. We need a world-class regional public transport system. We need to keep improving the quality of our waterways and making sure we have continuity of bulk water supplies; and we need to maintain and enhance the natural beauty of our regional parks and other environmental assets,” he said.

Saving lives round the clock Life Flight is calling on the public to help its crew continue to deliver life saving missions every day. Life Flight is a charity that provides emergency air services, including the Wellington Westpac Rescue Helicopter and a nationwide air ambulance service. The round the clock service gets patients the care they need quickly, dramatically improving their chance of survival and recovery. To date more than 26,000 people have been helped by Life Flight’s air services. Communications manager Terri Rosenstock said a direct mail appeal recently went

out to letterboxes across the capital, calling for residents to make donations and ensure Life Flight’s service remains free. Terri said Life Flight crew on average completed four missions per day, and with a price tag of $2500 per mission it was vital to have to have the public’s support. “We rely on the community every time we save a life to help bring in those funds. We have been really lucky in that we have many regular givers and positive response to our work.”  For more information on Life Flight or to make a donation, head to www.lifeflight.

Ritchie throws hat in the ring Wellington’s longest serving councillor has announced she is vying for the top job this year. The nominations for this year’s local government elections are open and Northern Ward Councillor Helene Ritchie has thrown her hat in the ring and announced she will be running for Mayor of Wellington. As an Independent, she will also stand again as a Northern Ward Councillor and will aim to keep her seat on the Capital and Coast District Health Board. Ms Ritchie has spent 30 years on the Wellington City Council including one term as deputy mayor. She said she believed experience was important when serving on a local government. “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.” Ms Ritchie is no stranger to the mayoral campaign – she last stood 10 years ago. Her vision for the capital the second time around was to ensure Wellington was an elegant, liveable, affordable, 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 Ritchie said 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.”  Mayoral candidates for 2016: Nick Leggett, Celia WadeBrown, Justin Lester, Jo Coughlan, Nicola Young, Andy Foster and Keith Johnson.

Northern Ward Councillor Helene Ritchie will stand for Mayor of Wellington.

Cancer Society campaign continues The Cancer Society is hoping to raise awareness for its ‘Power Up’ campaign, which would see more than 100 solar panels installed on the Margaret Stewart House. The Margaret Stewart House is located on the grounds of Wellington hospital, and is run by the Cancer Society. It provides support for people whilst they have treatment at the Wellington Blood and Cancer Centre. The house hosts not only patients receiving treatment, but their friends and whanau, and up to 40 people can be accommodated at the house at one time. Through its ‘Power Up’ campaign the Cancer Society hopes to raise $70,000 to cover the costs of 115 solar panels for the house. This will save over $300,000 during the 25 year warranty period; freeing up money for the Cancer Society to be spent on other essential cancer services. Mike Smith, chief executive of the Cancer Society, said the campaign had been relatively slow to start off with. “However all of our business supporters have now been approached directly and by email and we have teamed up with Solar King, Mayor of Wellington Celia Wade-

Brown and the Wellington City Council, and soon the Sustainability Trust, to get their endorsement and supporters behind the project. “As we get closer to August and Daffodil Day, which heightens the visibility of the Cancer Society, we are confident that the project will kick in and that we will achieve our goals as was achieved by the Cancer Society in Auckland who have already completed a similar project.” Mike said the Cancer Society would appreciate it if the public could help out with the cause. “This project is about extending our services to meet the growing demand. I am sure everyone can relate to supporting that,” he said. The Cook Strait News will be tracking the Cancer Society’s process throughout its Power Up campaign.

Don’t let the flu get you! Flu is a viral infection which cannot be treated by antibiotics; once you have caught flu you have to let the illness run its course and for people with a fragile state of health this is risky and a number of people die from the illness every year. Flu vaccinations are free for people over 65 and for most of those with a ongoing health conditions. Newtown Medical Centre warmly welcomes enrolled, new and casual patients and is committed to providing excellent health care to our community. We are a part of the Newtown community and understand that because our community comes from many different places and different cultures, it is essential to offer a level of medical care specially suited to each patient.

Unichem Cuba Mall and Courtenay Place Colds and flu are often confused for one another, especially when it comes to treatment. A cold is a mild viral infection of the nose, throat, sinuses and upper airways. The flu is an acute viral infection of the respiratory tract. The flu is a serious illness that can affect even the fittest, healthiest people. With so many painkillers, nasal sprays, cough syrups, throat lozenges, multi-action tablets and decongestants available, it can be confusing to know what to chose. At Unichem Cuba Mall or Courtenay Place, we take you through some of the most common cold symptoms and what kind of treatments work best.

Commonsense Organics Commonsense Organics, Rongotai Road, Kilbirnie has everything you need to keep you and your family well this winter. We have qualified naturopaths in store every day who understand the effects these colder months can have on your health. Whether it’s recommending a naturally fortifying tea, a balm to ease aches and pains or a herbal supplement to boost your immunity – we’re sure to have just the thing to suit your specific needs and have you ready to embrace the springtime!

Wellingtonians have cheaper weekend bus fares to look forward to next month. For four weeks from November 28, Go Wellington buses will change to a $1 fare for one zone of travel and $2 adult fare and $1.50 fare for children for two or three zones of travel. It is hoped this will encourage people to use public transport to travel in and out of the city. The Wellington City Council has budgeted $200,000 for the initiative. Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown said the public transport initiative would help to get more Wellingtonians onto buses and into the central city during the busy weekends in the run-up to Christmas. “This initiative will provide
