New Zealander of the Year nominations open New Zealander of the Year nominations are now open for 2017 and locals are being encouraged to nominate someone they know. Nominations for the award, and supporting categories, opened last month and close on Friday, September 30. Any member of the public can nominate an individual or community organisation in the Awards programme. In addition to the Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year, awards will also be presented to New Zealanders who have

performed with distinction in five additional award categories. These include the University of Auckland Young New Zealander of the Year, Metlifecare Senior New Zealander of the Year, Mitre 10 New Zealand Community of the Year, Sanitarium New Zealand Innovator of the Year and the Kiwibank New Zealand Local Hero of the Year. Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace said he would like to see people from the Hutt Valley

Continued from page 1 This would be Emma’s first art exhibition. She said she was “nervous” but excited to share her work with the community and grow her profile as an artist. “I’d love to be able to do art professionally. I’ve always loved art. I’ve always had a passion for it,” she said. Emma said she had been inspired by her family, who she said were all very creative. “My aunty is very creative. She’s really into her art. My nana used to do art and so did my sister. It sort of runs in the family,” she said. Emma said she was most inspired by artwork from Mexico, shown by the sugar skulls and cacti in her art.

Runway debut By Emma McAuliffe

A local girl will be making her debut on the national runway following her acceptance into New Zealand Fashion Week. Latia O’Kane-Hughes’ design was chosen as part of the Resene NZ Fashion Tech Colour of Fashion project which saw 17 students from the New Zealand Fashion Tech make a garment from Indian hand-woven silk. Ten of the 17 designs were then chosen to go to Fashion Week as part of the Resene Designer Runway. Eighteen-year-old Latia said she was surprised to have been chosen for the national event. “It was pretty scary to be honest, I didn’t actually expect it. It was a weird feeling. Fashion Week is pretty soon. Now I’m hoping people will like it,” she said. Latia was the first to choose her colour to work with and

chose black calling her work “Savage Beauty”. “It’s about the beauty in the darkness. Even in your darkest moments you can still be beautiful,” she said. She said the mood of the piece was “a girl with messy hair and stubborn spirit, deciding to shake free and show her transformation into a woman”. Latia said it was her first time working with silk and called it a “slippery” fabric to work with. It was also the first time black was an option to choose for the designs, in the three years the challenge has been running. Karen Warman of Resene said the colour had been added as the company “decided a New Zealand collection showcasing the Colour of Fashion wouldn’t be truly complete without black”.  New Zealand Fashion Week runs from Monday, August 22 until Sunday, August 28.

Enrolments to vote close this Friday The Electoral Commission is urging people to act quickly if they want to make voting easy in next month’s local elections.

Those who enrol after Friday will need to cast a special vote, and will need to contact the Hutt City Council for voting papers.

Control of alcohol in public places to be discussed with community Residents of the Hutt Valley now have the opportunity to share their views on which public places they believe should be alcohol-free zones. At last Tuesday’s Hutt City Council meeting the council agreed the proposed Alcohol in Public Places Bylaw should go out for consultation from Tuesday, August 9 to Friday, October 28 2016. The Bylaw has proposed some public places to be permanent alcohol free zones. There were

also options presented on a time ban for either all public places in Lower Hutt to be alcohol free from 9pm to 5am, or all public places, except for Eastbourne and the Western Hills, to be alcohol free from 9pm to 5am. Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace said public places did not include bars, other licensed premises or private properties and instead referred to parks, the river bank and public streets. He said while police had other

powers in place to deal with drinking in public, this Bylaw would provide a legal tool for police to use to intervene before a situation escalated into a more serious situation. “A lot of crimes in our city are related to or made worse by alcohol consumption. We want people to feel safe in public places,” Mr Wallace said. Council would be asking residents to provide any further evidence to them during consultation. Evidence could

be finding alcohol bottles in a public park, witnessing an incident in a public place involving alcohol, or hearing about an incident.  Information including the proposed Alcohol in Public Places Bylaw, the supporting evidence and maps of proposed alcohol free zones were available on Council’s website huttcity.govt.nz and Hutt City libraries from Tuesday, August 9.

The Wainuiomata Harriers endured rain and sleet for their annual Club Road running and walking Championship races on Saturday. The 3km course was held on Waterworks Road, off Moores Valley Road. Winners for each grade were Cameron Forsyth for the Junior Boys 3km, Hanna Hoffman for the Junior Girls 3km, Georgina Cox for the Women’s 6km, Matt Davy for the Men’s 6km and Karen Forsyth for the Walker’s 6km.

Junior darts national champs By Emma McAuliffe

The Wainuiomata junior darts team returned home with a few medals following a national championship. The New Zealand Darts Council Junior/Youth Championships were held in Auckland over a three day period at the end of July. The Wainuiomata Darts Association sent 18 junior players to the prestigious event from which several of them walked away winners. H u n t e r G r i n d l ey a n d Wa d e Kernachan won the Junior Boys Pairs 2016 and Josh MacDonald-Gay and Amelia Watts were the Youth Mixed Pairs 2016 Winners Clayton Gough and Ben Herman were the runners up for the Youth Boys pairs and Kent Kernachan was the runner up in the junior boy’s consolation event.

Katie Smith was made captain of the red team while away, as well as scoring the first 180 and being a runner up in the Youth Single Girls category. The young people remained coy about their wins saying they did “alright” when asked by the Wainuiomata News how they thought they did. “The juniors did well, they stood out,” Katie said. Wainuiomata Darts Association treasurer Jeanne Silcock said the club was very proud of how the juniors did. She said the juniors would now be looking forward to the junior/senior games and the senior, mate and mentor games.  The Wainuiomata Darts Association meets at the Hillview Lounge at the Fitzroy Tavern every week.

A community of giving and receiving time from others is looking for more members from Wainuiomata. The Hutt Timebank is a trading system in Lower Hutt for people to exchange skills, knowledge and labour with others in their local community. It has existed since 2012 and has over 180 members from around the Hutt Valley, including seven from Wainuiomata. Hutt Timebank coordinator Kirsten Gendall said the system worked in time credits, and for every hour someone did something for someone else they would receive a credit to spend on help for themselves. This could be anything from feeding a pet to helping somebody publish a book

online, she said. “The idea is you do things you enjoy for others. It builds community and gets people to network and start trusting each other. “What a lot of people quite often don’t get is it’s about receiving as well. It’s not just about giving help,” Kirsten said. Wainuiomata member of the Hutt Timebank, Elle Abel, said being part of the Timebank gave her a “good buzz” about helping out the community. “It might only be a little thing to you but to them it might be quite big,” she said.  There will be an information session for those interested in learning more about the Timebank at the Wainuiomata Library next Saturday, August 20 at 2pm.

A local woman will be taking on the Wellington stage in a production of ‘Ladies in Lavender’ next week. ‘Ladies in Lavender’ is a play set in a Cornish fishing village in 1937. The story follows Janet and her younger sister Ursula whose seemingly idyllic existence is changed forever when a handsome and mysterious young man is found washed up on the beach after a violent storm. His presence, and the arrival of an exotic artist from the Continent, disrupts their peaceful lives and forces them to face some painful memories and sad realities. The Wellington Repertory Theatre production, directed by Annabel Hensley is the first Wellington production of the play, adapted from the popular 2004 film. Wainuiomata resident, Christine Hunt, plays Dorcas the maid in the play. Director Annabel said ‘Ladies in Lavender’ was a “a beautifully written script with well-drawn characters”. “The play traverses unfulfilled hopes and dreams, unspoken desires, and unrequited love. I am fortunate to have an experienced cast and crew to bring the production to life,” she said. The Wellington Repertory Theatre was established in 1926. It is Wellington’s oldest community theatre and retains a special place in Wellington’s arts scene by providing opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved in theatre and for audiences to see popular plays they might not otherwise have the chance to see.

Margaret Stewart House helps with “journey of healing” When Gaye Davis and her family moved from their farm to the streets of Masterton, they envisaged a new beginning ahead. When Gaye was told that she had a brain tumor that needed to be removed, her new start turned into a journey of healing. Gaye was told that she would need four weeks of radiation therapy, and chemotherapy for another four weeks down the track. Naturally the Mum of four was wondering how she was going to manage the appointments. In stepped Margaret Stewart House – The Cancer Society Wellington’s onsite accommodation for out-oftowners needing treatment. “I don’t know what I would have done without Margaret Stewart House. Masterton is quite far away, I would have had to have someone drive me in once a day. Or catch the train in and back again… which is not ideal when you have just received treatment and your feeling exhausted. It would’ve been too much for me,” Gaye said. “My room here has beds in it for my kids to stay, which is fantastic. For them to come down and spend a day with me… well it’s helped them to be able to understand what’s going on.” It is the people who have truly

A local artist has started a collective to promote alternative art in the valley. Morgan Ryan started the CrossEyed Collective this year to give her friends and herself the opportunity to show art in Wellington which may have been too “weird” otherwise to fit in. “I wanted to be able to organise my own events my way, and this was a way to collect my friends and other artists together who have similar styles and interests,” she said. Morgan said the Cross-Eyed Collective was a group of artists whose style fitted into alternative handles such as pop-surrealism, horror and punk. The group’s name came from her own online handle, Cross-Eyed Morgan, she said. Morgan said to be a member of the collective one must create alternative art and be willing to take part in exhibitions around the Wellington region. The Cross-Eyed Collective will be making their debut with an exhibition in Wellington next week. Of the seven people exhibiting work, three live and two grew up in Wainuiomata. Morgan said the exhibition gave the opportunity to show people what the collective created. “It's the beginning of building a profile, this is introducing us and more exhibitions and events will follow.

Research and retirement for Grey Power By Emma McAuliffe

Local seniors had the chance to air their concerns at the most recent Grey Power meeting. Hutt City Councillor Margaret Willard went to last Wednesday’s meeting to keep the group informed on local issues, including developments with the retirement village. She told the group after the Warehouse decided to depart the mall the retirement village was hesitant in its decision to build in Wainuiomata. “They’re waiting to see what’s happening with the mall before progressing,” she said. Ms Willard said the group was currently working with the Council to see what could happen and future plans for the village in the community. “We have to have a retirement village yesterday. We need to look at what options there are,” Ms Willard said. Dr Dean Quinn from P3 Research was the guest speaker at the meeting. P3 Research is an independent clinical research company dedicated to clinical studies and trials. He educated the group on what clinical trials were and how people could get involved with them.  The next Grey Power meeting will take place at on Wednesday, August 24 at 1.30pm at the Life City Church. Speaker to be confirmed.

Grateful for Trevor’s openness Dear Ed, Whether you like Trevor Mallard or hate him he believes in openness and that’s the way Trevor is. It’s no secret that he wants the Speakers job and he listens to what the people wanted. Trevor Mallard started his political career to my knowledge as a political activist in Taumaranui with the Springbok tour

and to organise a march through a small town in New Zealand was not popular thing to do. Trevor was in three labour governments which brought major economic reforms. Trevor was the Minister of Education which saw a lot of our schools amalgamated. His move to list MP shows Trevor still has the belief of openness.

D AY I N T H E Bennett Pomana,

Nui FM Producer and family man What is an average day like for you? “We get here between 9 and 9.30am. We usually pick up Kai from Kaibosh on the way. Most days we’re working with kids at Rangatahi Learning Centre, and youth from Kokiri. We try to get all of our meetings for the day done in the morning. On Tuesdays we go and film Kaumatua- ones who are afflicted with terminal illness - so their families can have pictures and footage of them talking. I update our radio station, update the music and ads. Make ads. Then we have TiHei Rangatahi here in the afternoon. We do a lot. There’s never enough time in the day.” What would a dream day be like for you? “I’d take the family on holiday anywhere, as long as we’re together. We’d hire a campervan and go up the coast. We’d go up to Gizzy and do nothing except eat good food and laugh a lot.” What do you like to do outside of work? “Spend time with family first. Play basketball. Keep active. We try to live a balanced lifestyle.” Why do you love working in Wainuiomata? “Getting to know the people of the community and the kids. Both Pepa and I feel closer to the community than we do in the Upper Hutt community where we live. It’s a place we’d like to live in.”

I have had a hot and cold relationship with Trevor but support the principle of openness when becoming speaker which reduces the chances of conflict of interest. Mike Grigg (abridged) Wainuiomata

Local school gets a dream visit Local school students had the opportunity to learn to follow their dreams following a special visit at the end of last term. Structural engineer, Robyn Ryan, visited Wainuiomata Intermediate in early July as part of the Sir Peter Blake Trust’s Dream Team, to inspire students to ‘believe you can.’ Led by New Zealand’s GovernorGeneral, Sir Jerry Mateparae, Dream Team leaders had been speaking in classrooms around the country to inspire young Kiwis to “believe you can”. This was the theme of this year’s Sir Peter Blake Trust Leadership Week which took place in the first week of July. As part of Robyn’s talk at the Intermediate she shared her personal story with the students and inspired them to follow their dreams, just like Sir Peter Blake did. Over the summer Robyn won a Blake Antarctic Ambassador

Award, which saw her working on monitoring and maintenance of Shackleton and Scott’s hut on Ross Island, Antarctica. Robyn said as part of her talk she told the students about the leadership skills she developed in the “unique and challenging environment”. “On my very first night on the ice I had to dig and sleep in a snow pit,” she said. Sir Peter Blake Trust CEO, Shelley Campbell said 2016 had seen the “highest ever” number of schools sign up to have a Dream Team ambassador visit, with 476 schools around the country participating. “We know our young Kiwis have some incredible dreams. Listening to someone who has achieved their dream is really powerful and we hope it gives them the confidence to take their first steps towards achieving their goals,” she said.

Two year 12 Maths classes took part in the Deloitte GROW Programme which saw the students try to make as much money out of $5 as possible. One group took $5 and made $638 by doing bake sales and selling chop suey.

Atarehia Beazley said she would love to take part in a similar challenge again. “It was fun doing it with our friends,” she said. Other groups made jewellery and did car washes. “I reckon we did a good job. We washed the teachers cars and we sold lots of jewellery,” Amber Felise. Kacie Jones and Andrea Valster said it was a good opportunity to find out how businesses worked. “It was good just learning how businesses worked and to use what you have to start something,” Kacie said.  For more information on the Deloitte GROW Programme head to their Facebook page www.facebook.com/DeloitteGROW/home

Fenced dog area for McEwan Park in Petone Lower Hutt will soon have a dedicated area for residents’ furry friends. McEwan Park in Petone will be gaining a space dedicated to dog training and socialisation. The decision to build a fenced dog park on a section of McEwan Park was made at last Tuesday’s Hutt City Council meeting following consultation with the community. Design and construction of the park will not begin until further discussion is held with neighbouring sport groups, Empire Table Tennis Club and NZ

Football Little Dribblers, and community concerns raised are considered. These include concerns about the height of fencing, the management and monitoring of the dog park and education of park users. Council’s Regulatory Services Manager Geoff Stuart said a dedicated dog park in the city would complement the existing dog exercise areas across Lower Hutt. “This dog park will offer dog owners a place to train and socialise their dogs without fear of them running off. It will also

give Council’s Animal Services team space to expand on the 15 dog training session we ran last year,” he said. A management group would be established to help Council officers manage the park. “Our research shows that people who use dog parks are responsible dog owners who care for their dogs. Submissions made during consultation on our Dog Control Bylaw earlier this year show there is a great demand for a fenced dog park and we expect dog owners in our city to welcome the new space when it opens,” Geoff said.

SOUTHERN RIMUTAKA BOVINE TB CONTROL INFORMATION As part of the TBfree programme possum control work is planned for the southern end of the Rimutaka range. The purpose of the work is to eradicate bovine TB from the possum population. To achieve this possum numbers need to be kept extremely low – around one to two animals every 10 hectares. Along with there being infected TB infected cattle herds in the area monitoring of wildlife has also shown that control work is needed to reduce the possum population. This is vital to minimise the risk of the disease spreading between wildlife and farmed cattle and deer. Possum control has dramatically reduced the number of infected herds in the Greater Wellington region.

Weather makes tough guys and gals tougher

A range of pest control methods will be used, including traps and different toxins. Biodegradable sodium fluoroacetate, also known as 1080, will be aerially applied in the proposed operational area outlined on the map below (it is important to note that sensitive areas, such as water catchment areas will be excluded). Sodium fluoroacetate does not remain in soil or waterways. The TBfree programme helps maintain a viable agricultural sector and protects vulnerable native wildlife and vegetation from predation by possums. The Southern Rimutaka operation is scheduled to take place during September/October, weather dependent. Warning signs will be erected before the operation occurs.

Athletes from around the region got dirty at the weekend during the fifth annual Loaded Tough Guy and Gal Challenge. The Tough Guy and Gal Challenge is an annual event which sees competitors run once or twice around a 6km obstacle course. Nearly one thousand people braved the weather to take part in the event, which was held at Camp Wainui on Saturday. Event Promotions marketing manager Charlotte Pearson said the event went well despite the bad weather. “It was an awesome turn out, 886 out of the 1000 who signed up still attended. The Wellington community definitely has some tough guys and girls,” she said. Charlotte said because of the conditions of the day, the 12km race was cancelled and all competitors had to compete in the 6km race which was just one lap around the course. “I think it was a good decision [to cancel] because it took everyone a lot longer to complete,” she said. Charlotte said the winner on the day was Palmerston North’s Angus McKelvie who did the course in 30 minutes and one second.

Wainuiomata welcomes overseas guests By Emma McAuliffe

Local high school students had the chance to show off their hospitality skills when a team from Scotland visited recently. Two teams from Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh

visited Wainuiomata at the weekend as part of their two week tour of New Zealand which ends this week. The school was welcomed onto Wainuiomata High School on Saturday with a powhiri. The two schools’ 1st XV and 2nd XV teams then played

games against each other. The Wainuiomata 2nd XV squad was an invitational squad made up of players from Wainuiomata High School and St Bernard’s College in Lower Hutt. Wainuiomata High School sport coordinator Peter Cowan

said Merchiston won both games, 41-7 against the 1st XV and 37-7 against the 2nd XV. Following two rugby games the students and teachers ate a hangi together. Peter said Wainuiomata High School wanted to give Merchiston “a cultural experience.”

“The teams later said they were blown away by our hospitality and felt humbled and privileged by our powhiri,” he said. Merchiston Castle School headed to Christchurch following their time in Wainuiomata.

Loss and a win for rugby By Emma McAuliffe

Wainuiomata bowed out of the Jubilee Cup last weekend following a game against Tawa. The team lost 16-10 to Tawa at Lyndhurst Park at the end of last month finishing third on the Jubilee table. Tawa took on St Pats Marist in the Jubilee Cup final at Jerry Collins Stadium at the weekend. The final score was 24-20 to Tawa. The Wainuiomata Reserves took on Johnsonville at Helston Park at the weekend and won 47-38.

This was the final round in the HD Morgan Memorial Cup games. The Reserves’ previous game was against Paremata-Plimmerton at William Jones last weekend where they won 38-5. The Wainuiomata High School 1st XV took on St Patrick’s Silverstream last weekend in the qualifying match for the WelTec Premier 2 grade semi-finals. St Patrick’s won 29-7. Wainuiomata High School 1st XV won by default against Taita in the WelTec Premier 2 grade the previous weekend.

Great weekend for hockey Wainuiomata Hockey club had a fantastic weekend with both women's teams making it through to their finals. The Premier team played Eastern Hutt in a tough battle. The score remained 1 all at full time so the game went into

extra time. With the score still locked up after the first lot of extra time, both teams dropped down to seven players for the final five minutes. The team played with true spirit and can-do attitude and

were able to score the golden goal in the extra time with about a minute to go. Premier captain Jo Martin said the team was “ecstatic” with their win. “We had set ourselves the goal of getting to the premier 2

competition in about 3 seasons so to make the final in our second year is just amazing,” she said. The team now moves into this weekend’s grand final. The Reserves won their game on Sunday, 1 nil against Petone,

which secured them a spot on finals day on Saturday. Wainuiomata High School had a 9 nil win over Hutt Valley High School on Friday night. They are now moving into their play off stages for the season.

Got Tools Got Mates Make it Happen

Barrett shines in Super Rugby final Beauden Barrett’s irresistible form must see him anointed as currently the best No 10 in New Zealand rugby. In the post-Daniel Carter era, it has been the diminutive playmaker from Taranaki who has stepped-up the most and made sure his play is impossible to ignore. He outplayed incumbent All Blacks including first five Aaron Cruden in the Hurricanes’ Super Rugby semi-final win over the Chiefs on Saturday, July 30. A fantastic performance by Barrett at the weekend helped the Hurricanes secure their first ever championship after dominating the Lions with a 20-3 finish. After picking up man of the match Barrett has done well to shake off “the

Transform QUEEN ST

impact player” tag. His electric pace, great vision and ability to play fullback has seen him be an effective tool for All Blacks coach Steve Hansen to use against tired opposition. With his general play, kicking and improved percentage off the kicking tee Barrett finally got his opportunity to make 80 minutes of impact rather than 25. Cruden’s form has been mediocre at best during the Super Rugby campaign and while he has a safe spot in the All Blacks squad, he’ll need to be wary of the vastly improved Lima Sopoanga, who is also creating a strong statement for more international exposure after another solid season for the Highlanders.
