Space for community “It’s been a really beautiful process so far.”

By Emma McAuliffe

A community led initiative to develop the Vogelmorn precinct has started to make progress. The Vogelmorn precinct, which includes the old Bowling Club and Community Hall, has been in development for two years as the community figured out what they would like its purpose to be. Cally O’Neill, an architectural designer with “a particular in community spaces and development” has been involved with the project as part of the Vogelmorn Community Group for 18 months. She said she “saw the energy and potential the community had”. “I was in the right place at the right time really,” she said.

Chocolate Lovers Haven By Beckie Wilson, MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

One of Wellington’s wellloved chocolate companies will be in full swing at the Chocolate Festival. Miramar’s Bohemian will be staring at the Chocolate Festival this week. Bohem ia n’s owner a nd Chocolatier George Havlik believes the more he goes to these festivals, the more he can tell people his story. “It’s [homemade chocolate] a reasonably new thing to New Zealand, so the more we raise awareness to how much work

goes into it, the better,” he said. It all began for Havlik when he fell in love with chocolate at the age of 12. In 2005, having left his homeland of Czech Republic, he fulfilled a lifelong dream of opening Bohemian Fresh Chocolates in Hataitai. After eight successful years the Hataitai shop and workshop became too small to keep up with the up demands of his quality chocolate. Now with the workshop based in Miramar he and his team have more space to produce more. The chocolates are made with

fresh, natural ingredients making Bohemian the only chocolate company in New Zealand that refrain from using artificial flavours or preservatives, as far as they know, George said. The Bohemian team travel with a refrigerated cabinet for the chocolates to be displayed in at festivals and fairs. “Having the cabinet means we never have to worry about the chocolates melting, and they are the right temperature for the customers,” he said. Havlik and the Bohemian team go to every festival they can. “The festival isn’t just for us,

Continued from page 1 Cally said for the first eight months the community group was involved in a pilot project which determined what the community of Brooklyn wanted to do with the precinct. She said previously the Wellington City Council had intended to put the Vogelmorn Community Hall up for sale for housing however, community members were keen to have the space for community use. This could include things like having a shared tool library and workspaces as well as having access to the green between the Bowling Club and the Community Hall, she said. “It’s been a really beautiful process so far. An obvious want for community space started a dialogue… with as many people as possible. The community decided the projects. “Instead of the Wellington City Council telling us what would happen Brooklyn told council what would happen,” she said.

Cally said while the community of Brooklyn had suggested ideas for what they wanted to happen with the precinct, there was still a long way to go when it came to deciding what would actually happen. “We’re waiting to hear where to from here. We understand there’s going to be a next step in the process with council support,” she said. Wellington City Councillor Paul Eagle said he was interested in the process taken by the community. “There’s been what can only be described as a quiet, communityled, revolution up on top of the hill in the Vogeltown and Mornington areas. “We’ve got a lot of passionate people up here and there are inevitably differing views on how things should go – but most of the people can see how great this precinct will be for the local community if we all get it right.”  For more information on the Vogelmorn Community Group head to

Incumbent pulls out of 2016 mayoral race “I am very proud of what I have achieved as Mayor.” Wellington City is set to have a new mayor after incumbent Celia WadeBrown announced she would not be running in this year’s election. Ms Wade-Brown announced last week she would not be standing in the upcoming local body elections in any capacity. “I am very proud of what I have achieved as Mayor, with Wellingtonians, councillors and staff, over the past six years and I’m confident that I leave office with further significant projects set up for a supportive Mayor and council to complete,” she said. Ms Wade-Brown has been in local government for 20 years. She had 14 years experience on Wellington City

Council before she claimed the top spot in 2010. She said she had many achievements throughout her terms as Mayor across the economic, social, cultural and environmental spheres under her leadership. “As a progressive politician, I have led local government in New Zealand with the staged implementation of a living wage for all Council staff, CCO employees, security and cleaning contractors. “We’ve bought the land for the new Movie Museum and Conference Centre and the last details are being ironed out between [Victoria University], [the New Zealand Symphony

Orchestra] and us on the Town Hall and Civic Precinct,” she said. Ms Wade-Brown said she was now ready to move on and contribute to the community in a different capacity. She applauded those who were willing to put their hand up for the job. “It’s not easy but when you get in it’s an amazing amount of fun and an amazing amount of work.” She did, however, say she would not be making comments on the mayoral candidates until after the nominations close on Friday. “I step down with both the capital and myself in good heart,” Ms WadeBrown said.

Environment Committee discuss animal policies A series of recommendations on rule changes affecting animals in the city were made at a Wellington City Council Environment Committee meeting last week. The committee’s decisions on August 4 regarding cats, dogs, roosters, pigeons, bees and other animals in the city will be subject to confirmation at a meeting of the full council on August 17. The committee considered amendments to the Wellington Consolidated Bylaw 2008 Part 2: Animals. It also considered recommendations from a review of the council’s Dog Policy over the past year. An Animal Policy will be developed to provide the public with more information. The committee’s Chair, Councillor Iona Pannett, said the bylaw and rules are part of the council’s intention to protect animals, to enhance their welfare and to

stress that people have responsibilities in this regard. Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown said the proposed changes strike a balance that recognises both the importance of people’s relationships with their pets and the impacts from uncontrolled animals. “Protection of native wildlife is dealt with under a separate area, implemented through increased pest control funding, planting and species release at Zealandia.” “The compulsory microchipping will enable cats to be more rapidly reunited with their loving owners.” The committee also recommended some changes to the areas where dogs are allowed to be off-leash. These changes to some parks and dog exercise areas aimed to reduce conflict between dogs and other park users whilst allowing dog owners to exercise their pets.

Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown will not be standing for Mayor this October.

Plans are underway for a $7 million restoration of the historic chapel at the Erskine College site in Island Bay, as part of a $30 million redevelopment project. The project will include building a range of terraced houses and apartment units on parts of the site, refurbishing the chapel’s wedding and function centre, building a new cafe and early childcare centre, creating a heritage precinct with large public open spaces and restoring Reverend Mother’s garden. Property developer Ian Cassels, of The Wellington Company, said the project offered a significant boost to Island Bay’s economy and housing, as well as breathing fresh life into the former Catholic girls’ school. Last year, Wellington City Council designated the site a special housing area under the Wellington Housing Accord. Earthquake strengthening and restoring the 1930 Chapel of the Sacred Heart, recognised as one of New Zealand’s finest gothic chapels, would protect

the Category 1-listed historic building for the future, Ian said. It would resume as a popular wedding venue after closing when the council red-stickered the chapel and adjoining four storey convent building as earthquake prone in 2012. Ian said while he was pleased to be able to restore the chapel, he was disappointed none of the numerous options explored to retain the 1906 convent building proved economically feasible. Ian said the need to develop the site had become increasingly urgent with vandals targeting its empty buildings almost daily. The company now had until September 13 to lodge a resource consent application to the council. Erskine College old girl and former head prefect, Councillor Nicola Young, said she was excited about the planned restoration of the Chapel of the Sacred Heart, and the economic value the wider development will bring to Island Bay. “The alumnae are desperate

for the chapel to be saved, and the Wellington Company’s proposal will ensure the building is there for future generations.” Southern ward Councillor and local resident Paul Eagle said local people had waited over 30 years for the future of the Erskine College site to be decided. “This development will help solve the shortage of good quality housing in Island Bay and provide an economic boost for

the community.” The Wellington Company was now working with the Island Bay Residents Association to prepare consultation material for community residents to be displayed from Thursday August 18, at 132 The Parade, Island Bay.  Are you pleased the chapel at Erskine College will be restored? Send us an email, news@wsn.

Councillor Paul Eagle, President of the Island Bay Residents Association Vicki Greco, Councillor Nicola Young, Island Bay Residents Association member Jane Byrne and Ian Cassels from The Wellington Company look over proposed concept plans.

Back to school for biomed student By Rosel Labone MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Wellington actor David Young feels like a kid again. He recently joined a very exclusive boys club, playing Scripps in Stagecraft’s adapta-

tion of Alan Bennett’s The History Boys. The production has just wrapped up a sold out season at the Gryphon theatre. Voted Britain’s favourite in 2013, the play was a welcome respite from Young’s biomedi-

cal masters degree at Victoria University. “This was a treat,” Young says. All the cast had diverse age ranges and countries of origins – and interesting day jobs. “A couple of the guys were studying for statistics exams or international relations. It gave us something to talk about that wasn’t the theatre.” The play is set at a Sheffield boy’s school in 1980s Britain around the trials and tribulations of Oxford-andCambridge-bound teenagers, and Hector – a man whose teaching methods are strictly off the book. Originally putting his name down for one of the most hotlycontested roles, the sensitive

and complex Posner, Young was ultimately cast in the role of Scripps, the Greek chorus and voice of reason who has a very sincere teenage crush on God. Timaru-born Young is what the industry calls a “triple threat” – with singing, acting, and dancing abilities, and the bonus of playing the sax, clarinet, and piano. Bennett originally wrote Scripps’ musical interludes into the play – so Young’s gifts came in handy. “It was a bit of work. They already had the piano in the Gryphon – as soon as I had a handle on that it all started to come back. “It was nice to sneak the saxophone in.”

Scots College students impress A group of budding young economists have impressed judges at a recent competition. Scots College came second at the 2016 Reserve Bank of New Zealand’s Monetary Policy Challenge, behind Waikato Diocesan School for Girls. The competition, which has been running for 15 years, expands secondary school economics students' understanding of monetary policy. Just like economists working in the Reserve Bank, each team was required to analyse the

economic conditions facing New Zealand and consider the outlook for inflation to decide on an appropriate setting for the official cash rate (the interest rate set by the Reserve Bank to meet its inflation target). Forty-five teams from around New Zealand participated in this year’s challenge- presenting their decisions via videoconference last month. The top six teams were then selected to present at the national finals in Wellington. The national final took place at

the Reserve Bank in Wellington late last month, and was judged by policy manager Dean Ford and two Reserve Bank economists, Hayden Skilling and Daan Steenkamp. Deputy Governor Grant Spencer then presented the awards at a special ceremony. The team from Scots College won $1500 in prize money for their school. The Monetary Policy Challenge is open to all New Zealand secondary school senior economics students and runs annually from June to August.

Student earns place on New Zealand fashion week By Laura Shipley, Massey Journalism Student

A Mt Cook student’s bright design has earned her a spot on the Resene Designer Runway at New Zealand Fashion week this year. Sophie Sargent, 26 is one of 10 New Zealand Fashion Tech students whose designs will be on at the Resene Designer Runway during New Zealand Fashion Week, which takes place at the end of this month. Sophie said she decided on an oversized trench coat because of the colour she was given, buttercup. “Because it was such a bright colour I couldn’t make a cocktail dress, it wouldn’t look right,” she said All the designs had to be made from hand woven Indian silk in colours, Sophie said this was the hardest material that she has worked with. “It was so hard because if you pulled on it, it would fray,” she said. All of the pieces of Sophie’s design were fully lined with a thick dark

grey lining and she had to work hard to keep the colours the same she said. Sophie said she was excited about seeing her designs on the runway at fashion week. “It’s cool, I don’t know what to expect,” she said. Sophie said she has a theatre degree at Victoria University and wants to combine her passion for theatre with her passion for fashion. “I do a little bit of freelance costuming but I would like to do more,” she said. Sophie said she was interested in fashion because of the way looking good can make you feel good. “I like the way creating your own look can make you feel,” she said This is the third year Resene has run the Resene New Zealand Fashion Tech Colour of Fashion project. The project gives New Zealand Fashion Tech students the unique opportunity to exhibit their design talent as well as work with colours they may not have otherwise

thought to use. Judges will choose a winner from the 10 designs shown at New Zealand Fashion week where the winner will be announced.

Localisation Party represented Another candidate has thrown his hat in the ring for this year’s hotly contested mayoral race. Localisation Party member Johnny Overton, who described himself as a fringe-dwelling guerrilla gardener, artist and political activist, announced he would be vying for the top spot this October. “It’s about putting alternative views out there,” John explained. “It’s about letting people know anyone can stand for mayor – this is a democracy.” Johnny will represent the ‘Localisation Party’ in this year’s race and said Wellington needs to get back to its roots. “Making [the] transition from green-washed business-as-usual to the visionary-new would firstly involve halting the grandiose conference centre, film museum,

airport runway extension, Basin Reserve and Chinese Garden projects,” he said.

Johnny Overton is seeking the top spot.

He said Wellington needed to focus on future-proofing the city with decentralisation, fostering grass-roots initiatives and creat-

ing affordable multi-purpose build environments. “A vote for Johnny will be a thumbs-up to stands being made against the establishment’s globalisation agenda and for alternative views,” the candidate said. He said the founder of the Localisation Party, Lord Ayvan, would ultimately like to see the “establishment of an innovative, sustainable, uniquely constituted New Zealand Confederacy”. Johnny joined Keith Johnson as the only non-politicians who are seeking the mayoral chains this October. The number of candidates remains at eight with Porirua Mayor Nick Leggett, Wellington Deputy Mayor Justin Lester and city councillors Andy Foster, Jo Coughlan, Nicola Young and Helene Ritchie in the race.

Miserable failure Dear Ed, Patrick Morgan, complains (‘Keep it Dignified’ CSN 04/08) about not getting a fair go. In his letters (which appear in almost every issue of one or both of the local newspapers) he constantly repeats his half-truths and one sided statistics (‘lies, damned lies and statistics’) about the ‘popular’ Island Bay cycleway. If he were to take a scientific survey in the real world in Island Bay (outside of his parallel universe), he would find that the overwhelming

Rest home living. It might not be what you think.

majority of local residents (and most visitors too) think the kerbside cycleway layout is a miserable failure. He says a recent review found ‘no major problem’ in the new $1.7m plus cycleway. Exactly the same thing could be said of course for the previous roadside cycleway and no one ever complained about it. To fix some of the obvious safety issues that have surfaced since ‘completion’ of the cycle way even more car parks have been removed. What Wellington City Council

Restoration needed Dear Ed, I too agree with Dr Robinson and Harry Fyfe. We must restore The Parade in Island Bay to the original design. We have lived in Island Bay for 40 years and now our children have married locals and have all bought houses in Island Bay. Things started to change here when we lost our diving board just off Tapu te Ranga Island and the council refused to replace it. In hindsight, we, the residents should have been more vocal to get it replaced.

An elder-centred community

Pets welcome We believe pets can be both calming and energising, so we welcome animal companions. If you have a pet that’s part of your family, ask us about moving to Kilmarnock Heights Home with them.

Social calendar We’ll support you to continue doing the things you love in a way that’s right for you. The busy social calendar and stimulating recreation programme certainly make for a vibrant and engaging atmosphere.

Family and friends At Kilmarnock residents are encouraged to invite their loved ones to visit at any time; there’s no set visiting hours. And, for the children - we have a fully stocked toy box to keep them entertained!

We demanded that the sea wall be replaced sooner rather than later and, to the council’s credit, that is now complete. Now we are going through the debacle of the cycleway. This has ruined Island Bay Parade, is dangerous and almost ruined a dairy by taking their parking spaces away. Mr Edmonds should listen to his neighbours. Unhappy resident, Island Bay

Wellington Man gives his time to help immigrants adjust By Laura Shipley MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

A local man has been balancing working full time with community volunteer work. Pengbo Jiang moved to New Zealand from Fuzhou, China when he was 10. He said the help and support his family got when they came to New Zealand inspired him to volunteer to help others. Last year the dedicated volunteer was awarded the Pride of Workmanship Award from the Rotary Club of Wellington South. Pengbo said he started doing community work while attending Newlands College. “I started doing small things- I was an international student buddy.” Now Pengbo volunteers for six different organisations aimed at helping immigrants and helping students at Victoria Uni-

versity and people who want to set up businesses. He is a board member for Multicultural Learning and Support Services and Interpreting New Zealand, a committee member for the Wellington branch of New Zealand China Friendship Society and NZ Association of Immigration Professionals (NZAIP). He is also a mentor for Business Mentors New Zealand and Alumni as Mentors Programme at Victoria University of Wellington. Even with a full time job he volunteers after work and on weekends. “It becomes my night job. I feel as a citizen I should help out,” he said. Pengbo received a second awards this year for his community service. In July the Wellington City Council and Volunteer Wellington gave him a Volunteer Connect Award. “I was quite surprised

Wound care For many of us, wounds are a common part of everyday life, with accidents leading to cuts and scratches, grazes, lacerations, blisters and sometimes burns. These can happen no matter how careful we are or how organised our homes or workplaces can be. A wound occurs when a physical injury to the body breaks the skin or a mucous membrane. The body responds immediately and begins repairing the wound with the skin closing up and trying to return to normal as soon as possible. The time of repair may only be needed for a very short time and last for a matter of days or it may need to continue for weeks and months, depending on the type and size of the injury. In the past many wounds have been “fixed” with a plaster, the multipur pose plastic dressing strip. These are fi ne for small scratches and cuts but there are now many more dressings available for the different types of wounds that can occur. In

the past it was believed that wounds should be kept dry but now it is recommended that to help a wound heal well it should be kept moist. This is because a moist wound environment allows the skin cells to grow more quickly, thus healing and returning to normal in much less time. The aim of wound care is to stop any bleeding, prevent infection and to restore the health of the tissue. With any wound once any bleeding is stopped it needs to be cleaned. If it is already a clean wound then warm running water or gauze soaked in saline is appropriate to be used. Next dry the area and apply the dressing. However if the wound is unclean and is contaminated with any dirt, gravel or foreign bodies then these need to be removed so that the wound does not become infected. It is necessary in these cases to use an antiseptic to wash the area and remove unwanted particles and debris. Talk to your Self Care pharmacist about which antiseptics are

available and how to use them. It is important to try and prevent infection from occurring but if the area of the wound becomes swollen, red, hot and angry then it may be infected and you will need to see your doctor regarding antibiotics. Wounds caused by burns may occur due to sunlight, flames from fire, scalds, chemical or electrical sources. The affected area must be cooled immediately under cold running tap water for at least 20 to 30 minutes. The use of ice is not recommended in these cases. Burns can be superficial affecting only the top surface layer of skin or can be much more serious affecting many layers of tissues. Blisters should not be burst and fat, lotions or ointments should be avoided. There are a number of life style factors that can help with wound healing such as 1) diet 2) exercise 3) medication 4) dressing type 5) warmth. Your diet can affect the

Pam - MPS ANZCP Dip BuAd Sacha - B Pharm MPS

speed of the healing process. Foods associated with wound healing are protein, Vitamin C and Vitamin A and zinc and a diet enriched with these components in your diet can en ha nce wound hea l i ng. Regular exercise increases blood flow, improves general health and also speeds wound healing. Medication that affects wound healing includes anti-inflammatory drugs as these can interfere with the body’s natural healing process and hamper the action of immune system cells. Talk to your pharmacist about your medication to see if any that you are prescribed will hinder wound healing. Wounds that are dressed and kept warm heal faster. Dressings also need to be kept clean so change as necessary, usually not every day but maybe every few days depending on its condition. See your Self Care pharmacist about the many types of dressings that are available and the most appropriate one for a particular wound or for your fi rst aid kit.

Help your child learn to read Reading books aloud is one of the best ways you can help your child learn to read. This can be fun for you, too. The more excitement you show when you read a book, the more your child will enjoy it. The most important thing to remember is to let your child set her own pace and have fun at whatever she is doing. Here are some tips: • Run your finger under the words as you read to show your child that the print carries the story. • Use funny voices and animal noises. This will help your child get excited about the story. • Stop to look at the pictures.

Ask your child to name things she sees in the pictures. Talk about how the pictures relate to the story. • Invite your child to join in whenever there is a repeated phrase in the text. • Show your child how events in the book are similar to events in your child’s life. • If your child asks a question, stop and answer it. The book may help your child express her thoughts and solve her own problems. • Keep reading to your child even after she learns to read. A child can listen and understand more difficult stories than she can read on her own.

Power Up’ How toHouse reach us Margaret Stewart campaign Cheaper weekend b 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

Through its ‘Power Up’ campaign the Cancer Society hopes to raise $70,000 to cover the costs of 115 solar panels, which will produce a 30kW capacity for The Cancer Society’s Margaret Stewart House accommodation facility.

end of the year. Plasma was used to make around 13 different medicines and because of this the demand for plasma had increased “hugely”, Nicola said. “You have to have given at least one blood donation in the last two years before you can become a plasma donor.” Plasma is collected using an apheresis machine. The machine spins off the red blood cells and keeps the plasma. The red blood cells are then returned to the donor. Plasma has also earned the nickname “liquid gold” because of its colour, Nicola said, “It really is so special, it can be made into so many different medicines.” The blood drive will take place next Thursday, November 19, at the ASB Sports Centre in Kilbirnie from 9.30am to 2.30pm.

Surf Lifesaver smashes competition before world champs A local Surf Lifesaver did her club proud when she took out two top spots at a recent competition in Australia. Samantha Lee of Lyall Bay proved she was in fine form when she took on the Australian Pool Rescue Championships in Queensland over the weekend. Samantha landed first place in the Women’s 200m Super Lifesaver and set a New Zealand record with a time of 2.24.52 The talented Surf Lifesaver also managed a second place finish in the 100m rescue medley with a time of 35.05. New Zealand’s national Surf Lifesaving team the Black Fins, which Samantha is part of, will have their final camp this week ahead of the 2016 World Championships. Final preparations for next month’s event will be the core focus for the team of 12 who will aim to create history by being the first Kiwi surf lifesaving team to win three consecutive world titles. The final team camp will take place on the Gold Coast from August 11 to 14 with two days of racing in the pool and two days at the beach. Black Fins team coach Jason Pocock said it would be great to have the full team together one last time to hone their skills and work on any key areas ahead of the big event. “Last month’s team camp was a great opportunity to see where everyone is at and allowed the management team to work with them on some areas of development,” Jason said. “This time, we will be fine tuning with

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

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 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

New Zealand will also be sending a Youth team known as the Junior Black Fins. Like the Open team, the Youth team features six male and six female athletes.

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.
