Baron’s delights By Nikki Papatsoumas

Four years ago a local chocolatier was busy baking his popular range of gluten free and vegan biscuits. Fast forward a few years and Clayton McErlane is the face behind Baron Hasslehoff’s chocolate shop in Berhampore and his chocolate is now stocked at more than 20 stores across the country. Chocolate lovers will have the opportunity to taste some of Clayton’s creations at the upcoming New Zealand Chocolate Festival. Clayton said he was inspired to make chocolate after impressing friends and families with his home-made delights. “We started as a boutique gluten free bakery. That was the thrust of the business,” Clayton explained. Local chocolatier Clayton McErlane is the face behind Baron Hasslehoff’s in Berhampore.

Animal policies up for debate Cats owners might soon be required to micro-chip their feline friends, and the capital’s CBD might soon become more dog-friendly. These are among a raft of recommendations to be considered by the Wellington City Council’s environment committee today, stemming from public consultation earlier this year over possible rule changes affecting animals in the city. The committee’s chair,

councillor Iona Pannett, said the council received more than 750 submissions on proposed animal rules and on proposed changes to areas where dogs can and cannot go. She said the number of submissions received confirmed people were passionate about cats, dogs and other animals. “The general feedback is that we are on the right track with the proposed changes – there’s strong public support.”

Amongst changes to be discussed today, would be a requirement that all cats in the capital be either microchipped or wearing an identification collar by the end of 2017. The proposed changes to cat management aimed to protect domestic cats and encourage responsible cat ownership, Ms Pannett said. The committee would also discuss easing restrictions on dogs in the CBD, making

changes to some dog parks were increasing access times to some beaches, where there are currently summer restrictions in place. They will also look at making a portion of Island Bay Beach available to dog owners to have their furry friends off-leash.  The committee’s decisions at today’s meeting will be subject to confirmation at a meeting of the full council on August 17.

Baron’s delights “At that stage chocolate wasn’t even on the radar. “Then I made brandy truffles for family and friends for Christmas and they loved it… so I kept making it and began to offer it to shops.” Clayton opened his store in Berhampore in February after arriving in Wellington from Golden Bay in Takaka. He said he made the transition from baker to chocolatier, simply through “natural progression”. “I am self-taught through various cook books, recipes online plus a lot of research and a lot of mistakes,” he said. “At the beginning I was definitely a bit naive about how technical chocolate is to work with. I am still learning now.” Clayton said he loved working with chocolate because it was a “premium product” people used to celebrate with. “It’s a beautiful product and it’s something you get for celebrations, or to say thank-you, or I am sorry.” Clayton said he also enjoyed experimenting with flavour combinations and presentation.

Flavours such as “smoke and fire salted peanut”, and “rose, raspberry and pomegranate molasses truffle” were now part of Clayton’s repertoire. “It is great because it really marries with a lot, it can take a lot of experimentation when it comes to flavour.” A small selection of Clayton’s chocolate will be available at the upcoming Chocolate Festival.  Baron Hasslehoff’s is located at 464 Adelaide Rd, Berhampore and is open Tuesday to Saturday from 9am to 3pm.

Cup recognises the spirt of team work By Nikki Papatsoumas

A group of girls from a local multi-cultural group have been awarded a cup in recognition of their team work. Last month, students from St Catherine’s College took part in the Tu Tangata Festival at the Michael Fowler Centre. Now in its 38th year, the Tu Tangata Festival gives young Wellingtonians the chance to celebrate Pacific culture through music, performance and dance. Together, 26 girls from the small school in Kilbirnie rehearsed and choreographed a 12 minute performance which included Samoan song and dance, Tongan dance and Fijian song, for the festival. As of last year, the Asotasi Va'a Makisi Cup was awarded to a participating school that best showed the spirit of working together. This year St Catherine’s was awarded the trophy for their effort. The school’s multicultural leader, Stephanie Fatu, has been involved in the Tu Tan-

Weekly market on the cards for Newtown By Nikki Papatsoumas


ing in Lyttleton, Christchurch and when she arrived in Wellington she noticed there were no weekly markets of this kind on offer. “I thought it would be a good idea, having a weekly market. It builds up customers and I like the social aspect of it. “It would be great for people to have somewhere to go where they can pick up second hand vintage items.” Kate said ‘The Newtown Weekly’ would offer a range

of records, books, vintage womens’ and mens’ clothing, vintage bric-a-brac, flowers and more. She said she would also like to eventually have a weekly ‘artist in residence’ showcasing their work. At this stage, Kate said the markets would likely run between 9am and midday, however, she would look to expand these hours depending on the market’s popularity. Ahead of the first market day

Local bacon sizzles at competition

Free dental care

A local producer of some of the country’s highest quality bacon has picked up a national award. Last week New Zealand’s best pork products were crowned as part of New Zealand Pork’s, annual ‘100% New Zealand Pork, Bacon and Ham Awards’. Once again this year, Miramar’s very own Harrington’s Small Goods got a nod at the competition, taking out a bronze award for its dry cured middle bacon. Owner of Harrington’s Small Goods, Angus Black, was a chef when he bought into the small goods company in 1999. He said his mission had always been to supply a high quality artisan product. Angus said the secret to Harrington’s succulent meat products was the “old style production” method its butchers followed. Angus said Harrington’s bacon was dry cured using only natural ingredients, such as salt and sugar, just as it would have been 200 years ago. The result is a product full of flavour, that can’t be beaten, he said. “I really believe it is the best way to make bacon. You don’t

use any water and the result is a nice natural flavour. “Our bacon has a great natural smoky flavour. It’s bacon like an older generation will remember picking up from the butchers.” Angus said his team of talented butchers produced an average of half a tonne of bacon each week. Angus said the business was continuing to grow, and he hoped to soon supply products to more supermarkets, and look at expanding into the Auckland market. The 100% New Zealand Pork, Bacon and Ham Awards celebrate New Zealand’s finest home-grown pork products. It also works to assist consumers, helping them identify and appreciate sustainable pork, bacon and ham. This year’s competition saw 210 entries from nearly 50 expert butchers nationwide. Each entry was scrutinised by an independent panel of 33 judges comprising of leading chefs, food connoisseurs and master butchers, before winners were announced at an awards ceremony last Tuesday. Harrington’s range of bacon, ham and sausages is stocked at selected supermarkets across the Wellington region.

Creative touch for local markets By Nikki Papatsoumas

Local woman Louise Brockway has stepped in to take over the management of the popular markets, which have been running at the Hataitai Bowling Club since 2011.

meet-up. Until now, the markets were run by a committee, which was set up to manage the bowling club, which was gifted to the community several years ago. However with the building in need of earthquake strengthening work, the committee has stepped aside from the running of the markets and Louise has put her hand up for the job. “It’s been a bit stop-start this year, as for a variety of reasons it hasn’t been able to run for a couple of months.

Make submissions on proposed airport extension

Children from Houghton Valley School will benefit from two newly planted feijoa trees.

Fruit trees growing neighbourhoods By Nikki Papatsoumas

Throughout the month of July, 120 apple, plum and pear trees were planted across Wellington. This was part of Wellington City Council’s Fruit Tree Guardians initiative, now in its third year. The initiative sees the council plant fruit trees in different communities across the capital. A group of ‘guardians’ are then selected to care for the tree and help it grow, so locals can enjoy its fruits. Community and neighbourhood advisor for the council, Sarah Adams, said the idea behind Fruit Tree Guardians was about “growing neighbourhoods”. “It’s about bringing people together in the neighbourhood. People in

the community become guardians of the tree and look after them for the benefit of the community.” Sarah said guardians were required to water trees over the first couple of years, prune them and mulch them. A Facebook page offered advice on how to care for the trees, Sarah said, and also helped guardians from across Wellington stay in touch with one another. She said trees were typically planted close to schools, parks or pathways which were easily accessed. Since its inception three years ago, more than 280 trees have been planted across Wellington, Sarah said. She said the initiative also enabled

people to access to free fresh and healthy food within their community. “A lot of it has been around kids and people wanting their kids to know where food comes from and having healthy access to food. “People are also really aware that increasingly there are people that don’t have food and are looking at ways of how to create more equality when it comes to food.” The Fruit Tree Guardians programme has finished for the year, but those are welcome to apply for next year’s round of planting, Sarah said.

Locals are encouraged to have their say about the proposed runway extension at Wellington Airport. Earlier this year, Wellington Airport lodged resource consent to extend its runway by 350 metres to the south into Lyall Bay, with both the Wellington City Council and the Greater Wellington Regional Council. It asked the matter be heard before the Environment Court as soon as possible and a hearing is forecast for November. The public notification period for the runway extension proposal has now begun and locals are asked to make submissions which will be taken into consideration by the Environment Court. Eastern ward councillor Sarah Free said Guardians of the Bay, a group established in opposition to the airport extension, held a public workshop last Monday at the Hataitai Bowling Club, for residents to come along and make submissions. Sarah encouraged residents of affected suburbs including Lyall Bay, Strathmore and Kilbirnie, to make a submission, and have their say ahead of the Environment Court hearing. She said with work on the proposed runway forecast to take around four years, short term effects could include, noise, truck movements and safety of trucks travelling through streets and restrictions on the use of recreational areas, such as Lyall Bay Beach. Long term effects to take into consideration included loss of the surf break and ecological damage. “Peoples’ experience, opinion and views have to be taken into account by the court. I would really like people to know there is a process and encourage them to have their say.” Sarah said making a submission was very easy and no view or opinion was too big or small.  Submissions need to be made by 4.30pm on Friday, August 12.

Children watch kai come out of the hangi as part of the school’s own Maori Language Week.

Children enjoy a mid-winter hangi By Nikki Papatsoumas

Students from St Anthony’s School in Seatoun were able to enjoy delicious kai straight from the hangi last week. New entrant teacher Sarah Macintosh said the whole school was busy preparing for their ‘Art Extravaganza’ while Maori Language Week took place in July. With this in mind, she said the school held its own week dedicated to New Zealand’s native language last week. Sarah, who speaks Maori, said throughout the week children learnt how to use Rakau sticks and learnt their Mihi, and also made Maori kites and participated in Maori weaving.

Children also helped prepare a hangi for the whole school, which took place last Thursday. Sarah said for most children at the school, it was their first opportunity to experience a hangi. She said kids were so excited many arrived at school, bright and early, to watch their food be buried in the earth. They also helped pack 10 packs of food made up of vegetables and chicken and mutton, for more than 100 students, and staff members to enjoy. “It’s an experience that kids wouldn’t necessarily have and it’s such a cool experience for them to see from start to finish.”

Bringing music to the ears of elders Island Bay retiree Tony Muollo is bringing music to the ears of Kilmarnock Heights Home residents, and has been doing so for almost two decades. The dedicated volunteer is in his 80s, but he doesn’t let age get in the way of bringing joy to the lives of the elders he plays for. “It’s a lovely home here and it has been a privilege and a joy to entertain so many lovely elderly people over the years. It’s great to see how they still enjoy singing along. You notice their feet tapping and a smile on their face,” says Tony. “I play songs from different countries because there are a lot of different nationalities in the rest home.” Tony says he bought his first piano accordion when he was 21 years old and he has been playing ever since. “My dad gave me 50 pounds for my 21st birthday and I used it for a deposit on a piano accordion. I learnt to play by ear,” says Tony. “As the years pass by it doesn’t seem to get any easier to lug the accordion around, but I want to keep going as long as I can.” Kilmarnock Heights Home recreation officer Annelize Steyn says it is always a treat to have Tony visit the home. “After Tony plays the residents often share special memories associated with the songs – which leads to them sharing wonderful stories about their lives.” Kilmarnock Heights Home is operated by Enliven, part of the

not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, and provides rest home and respite care as well as a popular day guest programme from 20 Morton Street in Berhampore.  For more information about Kilmarnock Heights Home, or to register your interest in becoming a volunteer, call 04 380 2034 or visit www.enlivencentral.

Geography whiz off to Beijing By Nikki Papatsoumas

A young geography pro will represent New Zealand at an upcoming international competition. Rongotai College student Barnaby Roche is one of four members of the New Zealand Geography Team. The Year 13 student will head to Beijing, China, later this month to take place in the World Olympiad of Geography competition. He will be joined at the competition by geography students from 60 countries across the world. As part of the competition students will undertake a range of multi-media and field work tests relating to their discipline. Barnaby was selected for the trip after submitting an essay about an issue impacting two different cities. For his essay, Barnaby compared Beijing and Auckland, and

talked about congestion in both cities and how the cities were expanding. He also wrote about urban isolation. Barnaby said geography was about much more than identifying countries on a map. “It is quite a wide discipline; there is a bunch of different things which go into it. There is physical and natural geography and there is cultural geography, which is to do with people and population issues. “Cultural stuff definitely engages me more, talking about current issues is something that interests me. It often all comes back to cultural geography and it’s quite complex looking and people’s reasons for doing things.” Barnaby said he was excited to see the fast-paced culture of another city. “I think it’s going to be a bit of a change of pace from Wellington to get to go to a big city like Beijing.” Head of social sciences depart-

Barnaby Roche and Louisa Richards will head to Beijing later this month.

ment Louise Richards is deputy chair of the New Zealand Board of Geography Teachers. She will travel with the New Zealand team as a chaperone later

this month. “I am excited for Barnaby because aside from the competition itself he will gain a lot of experiences.”

Louisa travelled to Russia for last year’s competition, and said Kiwi teams always fared well because of the New Zealand’s “conceptual curriculum”.

Wellington Zoo will unveil a new uniform in time for summer, in collaboration with local company Little Yellow Bird. The vibrant new uniforms are set to make a splash and are part of the zoo’s mission of igniting a ‘zoo revolution’. Wellington Zoo’s general manager, business and partnerships, Daniel Warsaw, said the zoo was excited to work with Little Yellow Bird, as they shared a commitment to making sustainable and ethical choices that were good for people and animals.

Little Yellow Bird used organic cotton, which when grown without chemicals, had a much smaller environmental impact, compared with conventionally grown cotton. “At Wellington Zoo, we want to secure safe habitats for animals worldwide, and we know that our purchasing choices can help make this a reality – creating jobs that provide alternative livelihoods, reducing environmental impacts, and investing in community development,” Daniel said.

A pop-up shop has officially opened in Island Bay’s village giving locals a chance to have their say about what they would like to see in their community. The shop, located at 132 The Parade, officially opened to the community on Monday and locals were invited to drop-in and share their ideas. Last month, Wellington City Councillors voted to begin consultation with the public over the design of the Island Bay Cycleway, which has faced strong community backlash since the project was given the green light two years ago. More recently, reports criticised the layout and design of the 1.7km bike lane and a local survey found 87 per cent of respondents were against its design. Councillors, members of the Island Bay Residents Association and representatives from Cycle Aware Wellington have since vowed to work together to come up with design for The Parade which everyone could be proud of. Jess Ducey will oversee the running of the new space, and hoped the store’s high visibility in the heart of the community would entice locals to come inside and share their views. She said the idea was to make it easy for locals to give feedback on what they would like to see for The Parade, as well as contribute to a 10-year plan for the seaside suburb.

Vicki Greco, Jazmijns Cryer and Jess Ducey at the ‘Island Bay Community Space’

“Everyone has an opportunity to come in and talk about The Parade and what they want for their parade,” Jess said. “This is a chance for everyone to talk about it and move forward together.” President of the Island Bay Residents Association, Vicki Greco, said no designs had been drawn up and encouraged locals to come in and share their ideas. “Don’t leave it until the designs have come out… you need to come in now and have input into what those designs will look like. I can’t stress enough how important that is.” As plans developed and community workshops took place, Vicki said more information would be available at the space so everyone

Treat yourself to a night of fashion and beauty advice Local women are invited to treat themselves to a night of fashion and beauty advice. For the past five years, Farmers stores across the country have been running the ‘What a Woman Wants’ show, hosted by motivational stylist, Lisa O’Neill. The show is a fun night out to encourage women to get excited about new season trends, garments to suit their body shapes and key makeup products. Farmers runs two series of shows every year, one for the spring and summer season, and one for the winter and

autumn season. The shows were born after Lisa approached Farmers five years ago, with a vision to bring the shows to women across the country. Lisa’s mission is to inspire women to look and feel their best and her book, Look Gorgeous Be Happy has inspired thousands of New Zealand women to look their best, to enjoy their lives and to try new things.

Crowds gather ahead of Monday’s parade Siren the police mascot, alongside a volunteer

Crowds lined the streets of Wellington last Monday to catch a glimpse of a special parade, to celebrate 75 years of women in policing. The parade was the culmination of a national torch relay which began in June. More than 800 police officers and police staff from across the country, retired staff, the New Zealand Police Pipe Band, women dressed in replica uniforms from across the decades, police dogs, puppies, old style police cars and more featured in the parade. Reporter Nikki Papatsoumas was there to capture the action.

“I think we should be doing more, so we can be role models for younger kids in the community.”

“I think that there is always more to be done. I think it depends a lot on your surroundings and who you are with.”

“Not really, because I think there is not enough support for young people in the community.”

“I can’t say that youth aren’t doing enough. Here at St Catherine’s with our Mission Day and all out Mercy Values I think it’s definitely a good start, especially for such a small school.”

“I think youth are definitely trying to do as much as they can for their community.”

LETTERS to the editor Saving history Dear Ed, Dale McTavish’s letter (CSN July 28) about recent house demolitions in Newtown echoes similar sentiments expressed by Heather Bevan in her recent letter. You would wonder what steps are required to conserve or relocate any historic houses before demolition begins.

I began to understand Heather Bevan’s back story, realising that her Newtown apartment purchase must have arisen from her desire to live close to her old family home. I wondered how much influence these two Newtown residents would have had if they had spearheaded a

campaign to save these homes. And how ironic, in one way, that the Salvation Army, an organisation tasked with housing families, should find itself in the position of demolishing housing standing on the site of their future projects. It would be good to think that the historic building

Dear Ed, Everyone has a right to their opinion on the popular Island Bay cycleway, but when you stoop to namecalling (CSN July 28), it betrays the lack of a sound argument. Here are the facts. All councillors voted for investing in safer and attractive cycleways. Despite two years of scrutiny,

no-one has been able to show what a majority of people think of the Island Bay cycleway. The recent safety review found no major problems with the design. As Michelle Obama said this week, "when they go low, we go high". Let's keep the discussion dignified. Patrick Morgan, Te Aro

CubaDupa picks up community award The street carnival that brings the capital alive with colour, community spirit and a heap of creative craziness has won an award. The CubaDupa festival was named the Supreme Winner of the 2016 Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards at a ceremony last Monday. The awards acknowledge the contribution of voluntary and non-profit organisations to Wellington and are sponsored by Wellington International Airport in partnership with the Wellington Community Trust. CubaDupa is an annual festival of Wellington’s much-loved Cuba St, transforming the popular creative precinct into a magical interactive playground of performance, sound and taste across two days. This year’s event, CubaDupa’s second, was held on March 19 and 20. The judges praised CubaDupa for the large volunteer base at the heart of the festival, and the collaborative nature of the event bringing together diverse performers, organisations and attendees from around the region and beyond. Mayor of Wellington, Celia Wade-Brown praised CubaDupa’s success in bringing

together many of Wellington’s diverse communities for a weekend of celebration, and commended all the community organisations recognised at the awards. “Our communities, our diversity and our creativity make up the fabric of Wellington,” she said. “Congratulations to CubaDupa for creating such a magnificent celebration of Wellington’s communities and cultures, and bravo to all the finalists and winners of the many categories. You all make a positive difference to our vibrant and inclusive capital.” Chief executive of Wellington Community Trust, Mark Cassidy, said the trust been involved with the awards for over 20 years and for the past 13 years with Wellington Airport. “We commit $43,500 each year to be distributed to 30 organisations across our region some of whom we would not otherwise be able to fund,” he said. “The number of nominations continues to climb each year and this year there was a record number.”  For a full list of winners, head to

David Jones opens its doors David Jones has officially opened its door to excited customers, after a star-studded opening night event. This was the first international store for the Australian based brand - marking a significant milestone in the department store’s 178-year history. Last Wednesday evening the store, on Lambton Quay, was officially opened by Prime Minister John Key at an event attended by more than 150 special guests, including Kate Sylvester and

Karen Walker. The following morning, David Jones ambassador Jessica Gomes cut the ribbon at the official opening of store in front of a crowd of eager customers. David Jones’ flagship New Zealand store occupies the heritage listed building that previously housed Wellington department store Kirkcaldie and Stains and the building has undergone a multi-million makeover. Retail New Zealand spokesman Greg Harford said the open-

ing of David Jones in Wellington was sure to benefit the capital. “The fact that David Jones has chosen Wellington for the site of its first international store is a real vote of confidence in the future of the New Zealand retail market, and that of Wellington in particular. “David Jones is the latest in a steady stream of international stores to be opening up in New Zealand, bringing new brands and new offerings to consumers.”

LETTERS to the editor Need to know more Dear Ed, Like an earlier writer I too am of the opinion that we need to know more about our senior paid council officers. Yes, we the ratepayers will hold all councillors to the cross during

elections, and the vote over the cycle way poor engagement will expose them, but also we must have council officers, some of whom are very well paid, held to account. I have had quoted to me

the chief executive has the buck at his door. Many council officers were involved in the planning, supposed consultation, design, and delivery of the cycle way saga. We need better service and

outcomes from these well paid executives. When I look back over the years it seems like every ward of council has had to 'fight city hall' over issues that common sense was not applied. Let's have

some articles and explanations from these shadowy people. Naomi Brooking Lyall Bay

Family Store, the alcoholics are given support so they are not tempted to go to the pub on the corner. Let’s hope the smokers are steered away from the building, the beggars do not hassle passersby as they do now outside the pharmacy in Riddiford St, I could

go on but there is just too much wrong with this plan especially when we have just learned that the day care programme is going to be upstairs. Our little ones want an outdoor area, grass, a sandpit and carers certainly do not want to have to climb stairs,

if the lift is not working or has been vandalised. We hope there is a desk somewhere where the buck stops at. Liela Patony Newtown

Loss of history Dear Ed, I 100 per cent agree with Dale McTavish, what a loss of history on Normanby Rd. While thousands of people will agree, the Salvation Army do wonderful work, their latest venture will have many of their supporters, our family included;

Keep Frank Kitts Park the same Dear Ed, Retain Wellington city's Frank Kitts Park the way it is. There are only a few pushers wanting to include a Chinese Garden on Frank Kitts Park. I believe the Chinese plants would

not survive Wellington’s strong windy waterfront and its salty sea spray and there is already magnificent old Chinese donated magnolia trees well established in the Botanical Gardens border-

ing along Glenmore St near the Chinese Embassy. This is where I believe a Chinese Garden should be planted. Martin Beck (abridged) Wellington

Safer roads proposed Feedback is being sought from members of the Island Bay community in regards to a safer Severn St. The Wellington City Council has received a number of concerns about road safety from residents, as well as an e-petition, in regards to the intersection between Moselle St and Severn St in Island Bay. After visiting the site, council officers have proposed to install two traffic islands on Severn St, to significantly improve traffic safety at the intersection. They have also proposed ‘no stopping restrictions’ on the corner of both Severn and Moselle Streets to improve visibility and to the provide bus and heavy vehicle manoeuvring at the intersection. These changes to the road layout would result in a loss of seven carparks. Island Bay Residents Association president Vicki Greco encouraged locals to pop into the community shop on The Parade to view plans and discuss their ideas. “Time is short to have your say so you need to act quickly,” she said.

Council wants to make travelling along Severn St and Moselle St in Island Bay safer.  Residents are invited to have their say by August 12. Head to www.wellington.govt. nz for more information on how to make a submission, or email Pop into the community space at 132 The Parade to share your ideas.

Funding for everyday cycling Communities organising cycling initiatives that encourage people to ride bikes more often can now apply for funding from Wellington City Council’s Communities on Bikes fund. The fund supports projects that encourage people to ride bikes as an everyday transport choice with $50,000 available this financial year. Projects can be events or activities, training programmes or infrastructure and equipment and applications are invited from organisations such as, clubs, community groups, residents associations, charities and youth groups. Spokesman for the Wellington City Council, Paul Barker, said Wellington was experiencing phenomenal growth in cycling. “We are committed to supporting groups that encourage people to ride bikes and contribute to improving rider safety,” he said. “This is one of the ways the council is supporting cycling as a viable and safe transport choice.”  Applications for this and other Council funds can be made through the Council’s website funding. Applications for this fund must be received by 5pm Friday September 16.

Active Feet Podiatry Dr Halpine of Active Feet Podiatry suggests having a Podiatry treatment midwinter to help keep your feet in top condition. We keep our feet closed in shoes in winter and this results in callouses, corns and pressure spots. Have them removed painlessly by Dr Halpine. We can also offer help and advise for chilblains which occur in winter months as our circulation slows in the cold. Toenails can become painfully ingrown this time of year from crowding in shoes. Dr Halpine offers both quick pain relief options as well as a surgical correction to rid you of the problem permanently.

Players announced for rugby representative team A number of talented young women rugby players have made it into representative teams this year. Following on from the success of Wellington's women representative teams in 2015, where both the Wellington Pride and Wellington Women's sevens teams made their national com-

petition finals, Wellington Rugby has announced the talented rugby players who made it into the three representative teams for 2016. Those teams are the Wellington Pride, Wellington Pride Development, and Wellington Under 18 Girls. Lizzie Goulden, Raylene Lolo,

Fa'asua Makisi, Joanah NganWoo, Alicia Print, Amanda Rasch, Bernadette Robertson, Janet Taumoli, Ayesha Letiliga and Timena Tuma'ai from Oriental Rongotai and Patricia Kalolo-Apolinario from Poneke have made the Wellington Pride team. Bernadine Solo and Priscilla

Solo from St Catherine’s College in Kilbirnie and Rosi Lomani, Taimane Siaosi and Tylah Reihana-Aukuso from Wellington East Girls’ College have made the Wellington Under 18 Girls’ team. Meanwhile, Anna Engels and Loretta Maiava from Poneke and Georgina Broughton and Selesti-

na Vaaua-Hamlin rom Marist St Pats have made the Wellington Pride Development team, which is new to the women's representative programme this year. This team was established to help support the Wellington Pride, and will allow players on the cusp of selection play regular representative rugby.

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

Rumblings of Rio The Olympics are almost here and yet I'm struggling to get enthused. Part of that is because London four years ago was an easy sell for New Zealand which has obvious historical links. The Brazilian capital is a little harder to get motivated about. Another issue has been the bungled buildup. The Athletes Village is not up to scratch and Russia's drug issues will taint the games. The IOC's lack of action suggests television ratings and money is more highly valued than clean athletic competition.

The much bemoaned Sky TV has the coverage rights and they are advertising 12 channels of coverage. That's impressive and is far better than the single channel coverage we used to get. Realistically, New Zealand could earn as many medals as their record six gold two silver and five bronze from four years ago. Rowing will be our best bet as it usually is. I'm sure when it starts, the Olympics will be captivating but I don't expect the overall experience to be better than London.

Olympic swimmer to return to capital after games By Nikki Papatsoumas

Following her Olympic debut in Rio this month, a local swimmer will return to Wellington for a series of fundraising events. Lyall Bay native Emma Robinson qualified for the Rio 2016 Olympics in late March, on the opening night of New Zealand open swimming championships. Emma qualified when she came in nearly three seconds under the nomination time in the 800m freestyle. Emma, who has been living and training on the Gold Coast in Australia in the lead up to the Olympics, will return to the capital
