Book takes top spot Inside house

By Nikki Papatsoumas

A book which shares the courageous stories of Anzac heroes has taken out the top spot at a national book awards ceremony. Earlier this year Maria Gill’s ANZAC Heroes was nominated as a finalist in a number of categories at the New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults. The book follows the intense and hair-raising front-line experiences of 30 courageous and unforgettable Anzacs who served in war. Continued on page 2 Young illustrator Marco Ivancic has just picked up an award for his work on a book about Anzac soldiers.

Wellingtonians give a thumbs up to public transport Locals say they are happy with public transport across the capital. According to an annual Greater Wellington Regional Council survey, Wellingtonians were satisfied with train, bus and ferry trips across the region in 2015/2016.

The customer satisfaction survey is an annual requirement of the New Zealand Transport Agency, the regional council’s public transport co-funding partner. As part of the survey almost 2300 public transport users were surveyed on 206 trips

According to a recent survey, Wellingtonians are satisfied with public transport across the region.

The book was illustrated by Hataitai local, 25-year-old Marco Ivancic, who alongside Gill, was recognised for his talent and hard work at a ceremony in Wellington last week. The book was not only named the winner of the Elsie Locke Award for the Best Book in the Non-Fiction category, it also picked up the Margaret Mahy Book of the Year Award – the top gong of the night. Ivancic and Gill first collaborated on Gill’s SPORTING Heroes and the talented young illustrator said she got back in touch when ANZAC Heroes was in the pipeline. Ivancic said being an illustrator was not the most

“lucrative” job, and hoped the nod would help raise his profile as an illustrator. He said he had no idea prior to last week’s awards ceremony that the book was even in the running for book of the year. For ANZAC Heroes, Ivancic used Photoshop and a drawing tablet to bring his heroes to life. Ivancic said he drew inspiration from black and white photos of soldiers for his illustrations; however, this created some hurdles. “I had to draw everything from black and white photographs; I didn’t have good references for detail… I had to imagine some bits and also use other people’s faces for

have told us they satisfied with their journey, the network and the facilities. We are particularly happy that more people would now recommend public transport to their friends.” Paul said in particular the survey found customers were pleased with train services and the focus was now about making the same improvements to bus services. “There’s no room to be complacent. Public transport has to keep improving and meet changing demands if people are going to choose it over their cars. “We’re looking to make people’s bus trips more punctual, reliable and regular, part of an easier, better and smarter public transport network for the region.”  Are you pleased with public transport across Wellington?

on trains, buses and harbour ferries. Results found that 89 per cent of those surveyed would likely recommend public transport to others. The survey also found there had been a steep increase in train customers over this period. Customers took 700,000 more train trips around the region over the last year than the previous year - 12.1 million up to 12.8 million. Greater Wellington Regional Council’s public transport portfolio leader, Paul Swain, said this was a strong indication of satisfaction with public transport. “We’re completely focused on providing a service that customers want to use and these figures tell us this is working,” he said. “We are delighted that more public transport customers

reference.” He said he also visited museums to gather images and colour inspiration. “It was a challenge, but it was quite fun going and looking at the real stuff and then trying to re-create that in illustrator.” Ivancic said he was now working on his third project with Gill, which would look at animals that were part of the both world wars, from horses, to donkeys to monkeys. He said he owed thanks to Gill, who he met while studying at Massey University. “She’s been really helpful. She has taught me how to get work done and do it fast and efficiently.”

Keen-nosed dogs put their sense of smell to the test By Nikki Papatsoumas

Yoga for mums and babies 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.

Wellington Newcomers Network The Wellington Newcomers Network will hold a meet-and-greets this month. Head to Clarkes Cafe at the Central Library on Thursday, August 25 at 2.30 pm.


Lisa and her dog Minnie participate in nosework classes in the capital.

“It’s about trying to make the smell unique. You then pair it with something like food so that the dog can find it.” Lisa said when you then to take away the food, the dog would still be able to recognise the oil of clove scent. Wellington woman Jan Voss

has been holding nosework classes since 2014 and said she had seen interest in the sport grow rapidly. “We’re used to seeing this in the context of customs and service work and some of our owners do have a serious focus, such as truffle hunting. “But for most it is a way to

develop a better relationship and have fun with their best friend, while doing something they both enjoy.” Lisa agreed, and encouraged locals and their furry friends to try it out.  For more information, head to www.acedogtraining.co.nz

Keen-nosed dogs across the capital are putting their incredible sense of smell to the test. Noseworks is a sport which makes use of a dog’s sense of smell. Dogs are taught how to smell to find, then alert their owner, to a tiny amount of a specific odour. Vogeltown resident Lisa Snow and her dog Minnie participate in nosework classes, and late last month took part in the Wellington Novice Nosework trial. The competition, which was held on Saturday, July 30 at The Barn in Upper Hutt, was the second of its kind to be held in New Zealand. Lisa said she became aware of nosework classes while attending dog training school with Minnie. She said it was a great activity for a dog like Minnie, who was sometimes nervous to be around other animals. “It’s also great for really active dogs but it’s also good for dogs that are less active because of things like arthritis,” she said. Lisa said in preparation for last month’s competition, Minnie was trained using oil of clove.

Irene Walker has just celebrated her 100th birthday.

A woman with connections to the southern coast has just celebrated an extra special milestone. Irene Walker turned 100 earlier this month surrounded by friends and family from across the country and overseas. Irene was born Irene Brewer and grew up in Taranaki. She worked in the post office exchange before the war and this is where she met her husband George Walker. George had grocery shops in Wellington and before they retired to Waikawa Beach, Irene worked in admissions at Wellington Hospital. Sadly, George died in 1987 and Irene now resides at a rest home just out of Wellington. She went to live at the rest home after she broke her right arm, meaning she now required around the clock care. Over the years Irene has

enjoyed quad biking, watercolour and oil painting. She is also a life member of the Otaki Pottery Club. Irene has two children, three grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Despite her age Irene still enjoys quad biking, and also enjoys travelling out on a family friend’s boat along the southern coast to check the crayfish pots. Irene said celebrating a milestone birthday had been magical. “I have just finished celebrating, that is how good it was. We had a big family party and family came from all over the country and overseas it was just fantastic. “It was also a lovely way for family members to keep in touch. I think everyone enjoyed the novelty of going to a 100-year-old’s birthday, it’s not something that happens very often.”

Help shape the future of the Basin Reserve A redevelopment of the iconic Basin Reserve is underway and the public are invited to go online and share their ideas for the future of the grounds. Last month it was announced that architects Tennent Brown would lead a team of designers, sporting experts and heritage advisors to help redevelop the Basin Reserve. They will use the public’s feedback when coming up a with a redevelopment design, with an aim to preserve the integrity of the iconic space while making it more accessible, more functional and more future-proof. Mayor of Wellington Ce-

lia Wade-Brown, who gave Brendon McCullum the Keys to the City last year after his historic triple century at the Basin Reserve, said spending a sunny afternoon on the banks of the Basin Reserve watching cricket was a popular Wellington pastime. The Wellington City Council has collaborated with The Basin Reserve Trust and Cricket Wellington to develop a Masterplan, which presented a shared vision for the future of the Basin over the next 25 years as both a community recreation space and a premier International cricket ground. The council team was also

working with Let’s Get Wellington Moving, a collaboration between the New Zealand Transport Agency, Greater Wellington and Wellington City Council, to make sure any transport solutions align with the redevelopment. Chair of the council’s community, sport and recreation committee, and Basin Reserve Trustee, Councillor Paul Eagle, said it was crucial for people living in neighbouring suburbs to have a say about the Basin’s future. “The Basin is not only an iconic cricketing venue but it’s the backyard and the only green space to many who live

locally.” “The redevelopment will provide an opportunity for using the Basin in ways we haven’t thought of, for example we’ve had concerts successfully take place and club rugby games. This is the time to participate as it’ll ensure the right supporting facilities are put in place.” The opportunity to give feedback on the Basin Reserve Redevelopment will close by September 12 2016.  Head to the recentlylaunched Basin Redevelop website, redevelopthebasin. org.nz, for more information or to learn how to have your say.

Workshop series attracts international presenters

U3A discussion group

A Wellington social service agency has tasked itself with providing innovative professional development opportunities for those working with children and families. Family Works Central is hosting a series of professional development workshops with the first, titled Positive Supervision, attracting a worldrenowned presenter, psychologist, trainer and author. Family Works Central General Manager Julia Hennessy explains that the idea for the workshop series came about after seeing a need for more affordable and innovative training for those in the social services sector. “These workshops will be a great way for the industry to ensure we’re doing all we can for vulnerable people in our communities, schools and prisons,” says Julia. She says Family Works found themselves in the perfect position to be able to offer some unique professional development opportunities by teaming up with international and

local experts. “Through my role at Family Works and on the board of Restorative Practices International, I am fortunate to meet those on the cutting-edge whose work is setting great examples that we can learn from,” says Julia. The first workshop, titled Positive Supervision, is being presented by Dr Fredrike P. Bannink. The Master of Dispute Resolution and Conflict Coach will travel from Holland to offer just two Positive Supervision workshops. The workshop is expected to be of interest to supervisors from government departments, NGOs, social service providers and schools. “Positive Supervision is a strengthbased approach. Unlike traditional problem-solving supervision, positive supervision focuses on creating solutions,” says Julia. “It’s an innovative and successful approach that can be used in any environment, including clinical, corporate, educational, health, governmental and community.”

The workshop will be help on 20 September in Wellington. The cost is just $250.00+GST per person, however spaces are limited. Two other workshops are also set to be held in November this year. They are Restorative Schools with the UK’s Chris Straker and Restorative Parenting with Ireland’s Jim McGrath.  For more information, or to secure a spot, visit www.familyworkscentral.org.nz or call Family Works on 04 439 4976.

A local pre-school is in the midst of undergoing some exciting new changes. Co-director of South Wellington Montessori School Sandra Aubrey moved on from the pre-school earlier this year after serving the local community for 20 years. For the past two decades Sandra has been teaching pre-school age children using the Montessori method, which cultivates children’s natural desire to learn with classroom equipment designed to encourage them to move and develop freely at their own pace. Sandra said the school had since been sold and thanked the community for their support. “We feel truly privileged to have taught, learned from and enjoyed the wonderful children who have passed through our school over that time, to provide them with a strong Montessori foundation for their lives, and to see them grow

and mature – and many of them, to become young adults over the years.” Sandra said the school had been sold to Diane and Bill McDonald, who would continue to teach the Montessori philosophy to children in south Wellington. Bill had an accountancy and finance background, and was a small business owner and management consultant with over 30 years’ experi-



ence in government, non-government and private sector organisations. Diane was a busy mother who owned a wool and craft retail business in Masterton. The couple live in Rongotai, and are very committed to the Montessori philosophy, Sandra said. Meanwhile, new teachers Konstanze Froede and Kimberley Wong began at the pre-school on Monday.

Cable Car offers free rides The scheduled return to service of Wellington’s Cable Car will be at 7am this Friday, August 19. To celebrate the return, all trips up and down the hill from Lambton Quay to Kelburn will be free on Friday. The Cable Car was scheduled to re-open yesterday however, Wellington Cable Car Company chief executive Simon Fleisher said the council and their contractors needed some extra time to get the essential

building work completed, including full building consent sign off. In addition to the work that Wellington Cable Car has done on replacing the Cable Car’s electric drive and refurbishing the cars, the Wellington City Council has also undertaken significant structural work in Cable Car Lane (including a new overhead canopy) and this has impacted upon the entrance into the terminal building and the ticket kiosk.

Glass blowing all about “art and science” By Nikki Papatsoumas

A local man who works diligently from his studio in Miramar has mastered the art of glass blowing. American born Tony Keupfer has been a glass artist in New Zealand since 1975. He opened his studio, Realglass Studio, in Miramar just 18 months ago. Tony said he became interested in glass blowing while working towards a degree in business administration through the University of Portland in America. He said a flatmate at the time had mastered the art, and taught him the tricks of the trade. “I then decided to start a glass studio. I started to get fairly competent with it and started doing it full time.” Tony said glass blowing combines both art and science. He said when he started in his early twenties he had just a 20 per cent success rate. He now has an 80 per cent success rate and his glass bowls, vases and ornaments are displayed in galleries across the country. He has even travelled the world to show his wares. The glass blowing process is a long and meticulous one. Tony begins with a raw material to create his glass, such as silica or sand. “Then you can add other elements to enhance the quality of the glass itself,” he said. “You work to a formula and weigh all that out according to a recipe, mix them all together then put it into a furnace which is heated to 1300C.” The materials then turns to molten glass; a process which Tony said takes roughly 12 hours. The molten glass was then blown with long hollow steel pipes a motion similar to “keeping honey on the end of a knife”, Tony said. “It takes a lot of time and a lot of effort to get an understanding of the material when it is soft and fluid and it’s moving

and molten.” “Then it is like having a pot of soup on the stove, when it’s empty you melt another batch,” Tony explained. Tony said decades on from perfecting his craft he still loved how “magical” the process was. “The fluidity of it, the idea it will dance if you get everything right it just flows by itself if you are handling it right. “It is just a magic thing to work with, to direct and influence it into a specific form. It is very challenging and satisfying when you complete a piece. “That and the natural characteristics of glass are pretty magical.”  Realglass Studio is located at 9 Ropa Lane in Miramar. Open days are on Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 4pm. For more information email Realglass@ xtra.co.nz

Carmen lights up Cuba St Transgender icon Carmen Rupe will once again light up the former red light district of Cuba St. A new set of pedestrian crossing lights featuring her silhouette were unveiled last Monday, on the corner of Cuba and Ghuznee Streets, alongside entertainment and music for everyone to enjoy. It was announced the lights would take pride of place at four intersections along Cuba St earlier this year. This followed from the success of the Kate Sheppard pedestrian crossing lanterns installed near Parliament in 2014. Carmen, born Trevor Rupe in 1936, was a drag performer, brothel keeper, anti-discrimination activist, would-be politician, and activist, who was a colourful member of the Cuba St and transgender community until she died in 2011. The launch of the lights

coincided with the 30 year anniversary of the Homosexual Law Reform Bill coming into effect - celebrating diversity and raising awareness and support for the LGBTQI community. Wellington City Council’s director for strategy and communications, Jeremy Baker, said the LGBTQI community was an essential part of the capital’s character. “New Zealand has come a long way in its support of the rainbow community, but there’s still a lot of work to be done. “Celebrating the wonderful character that Carmen was in this way displays tolerance, unity, and Wellington pride on many levels – and the council is proud to be a part of that,” he said. A series of other famous Wellington icons and figures are planned to be rolled out in similar fashion across the capital.

Speed bumps set to go By Nikki Papatsoumas

A set of speed humps in the coastal community of Island Bay are set to be removed after causing headaches for nearby neighbours. Earlier this month, the Wellington City Council announced it would carry out work to modify a set of speed humps, south of the Island Bay shops. The council’s community liaison officer Phil Becker said the set of speed humps were made lower and narrower last week to see if would help reduce vibrations, after a nearby property owner raised concerns about vibrations caused by the

humps. Phil said coastal ground conditions meant heavy vehicles could cause vibrations in nearby properties, as could vehicles travelling too fast over speed humps. “ Tests showed t he humps were partly responsible for vibrations experienced when buses and other heavy vehicles travelled over them. “We had hoped making them lower and narrower would help reduce the vibrations experienced when heavy vehicles travel over them,” Phil said. “However, the feedback we had was that the changes hadn’t made

enough of a difference.” Phil said as a result, the council would be removing three sets of speed humps –two sets at the southern end of the shops and a set at the northern end. He said the work would be carried out during non-peak times over the next fortnight, and there would be traffic management in place. Meanwhile, two sets of speed humps in the Island Bay shopping village will remain, however, they will be lowered. Phil said five sets of speed humps through the shopping centre were not part of the original cycleway design, but

were installed at the same time following a recommendation from the Island Bay Cycleway Community Working Party last year. He said this was in response to concerns that too many people were travelling through the shopping area above the 30km/h speed limit. “Monitoring before and after they were installed shows they have had the desired effect and made the area safer for pedestrians and people on bikes. “Before they were installed the average speed most drivers were doing was 42 km/h. It is now 30 km/h.”

Avoid costly mistakes by getting your DUCKS IN A ROW Spring is just around the corner, and with interest rates dropping again home buyers are out in force and homeowners are starting to think about selling. Sadly some properties hitting the market will run into problems, which could end up costing tens of thousands of dollars off the potential sale price. And as their home is likely to be the most valuable asset they own, it is vital property owners put themselves in the best position to achieve the very maximum price possible when they decide to sell. So often simple steps are missed in the rush to go to the market, which can hinder the sale process. This can be issues with council consents, building reports discovering unknown problems, small items of unattended maintenance affecting decisions to buy, or sellers simply not understanding the importance of the first impression a buyer gets from the street, causing the hottest buyer to drive on past

Olympic joy and Kiwi shame

Dear Ed, I was very pleased to see the announcement by The Wellington Company that Erskine will now be redeveloped for housing and the chapel will be restored. As my family has had an association with Erskine since 1935 I can say with some confidence that the current proposal is an excellent solution and I also refer readers to M Gibson’s letter to the editor of the Dominion Post,

Dear Ed, Once all the hullabaloo of the games is passed we should take stock. The Olympic Games are about participating and joy, not about cut throat and beating the opponent. We should have a good look at all the predictors, insightful administrators telling of the golds expected as well as journalists and commentators firstly fore spelling expected

Daffodil day on its way The Cancer Society is gearing up for its biggest fundraiser of the year, Daffodil Day. This year the annual flagship event falls on Friday, August 26. Daffodil Day raises awareness of cancer and is the biggest generator of funds for the Cancer Society. All money raised is used to help the one in three New Zealanders affected by cancer each year. Donations received as part of Daffodil Day go towards vital research into the causes and treatment of all types of cancer as well as providing a range of support services, information, health promotion and education programmes to reduce cancer risk, awareness campaigns and programmes for people affected by cancers. More recently, the Cancer Society has advocated heavily for Pharmac to fund melanoma drugs Opdivo and its alternative, Keytruda, with chief executive Claire Austin presenting at the Labour Party’s Health Summit in the week leading up to the June budget. Claire said the positive progress made in the last twelve months around cancer care in New Zealand is in the past now and there are new areas of focus. “We have made huge strides over the past year with the generous donations from caring individuals. “We want to continue to advocate and continue to provide quality care for cancer patients and their whanau in New Zealand and we are confident Daffodil Day will allow us to do that.” Claire thanked everyone who had donated over the decades and enabled them to continue to provide support.

Sharing ideas over a barbecue Crowds of Island Bay locals gathered to enjoy a free barbecue and discuss their ideas for the community at the weekend. In celebration of the new community pop-up shop in Island Bay, members of the Island Bay Residents Association, Cycle Aware Wellington and Wellington City Council provided a free sausage sizzle to locals last Saturday. These groups were currently working together on a plan for how they would like to see The Parade in Island Bay look, and were also working towards a 10-year plan for the suburb. The shop, located at 132 The Parade, officially opened to the community earlier this month and locals were invited to dropin and share their ideas about their community. President of the Island Bay Resdients Association, Vicki Greco, said there had been a constant stream of people visiting the shop since it opened two weeks ago. She said the barbecue was a great way to entice more people to have their say. “There were loads of people, overall about 120. We had people popping by with all different viewpoints. “Over the next few weeks there will be a lot more information

for people to look at. Everything that is being consulted on in Island Bay will be available for people to see in the pop-up shop.” Last week, a $30 million redevelopment of Erskine College was announced and Vicki said from today there would also

be information available to the public on plans for the historical building at the pop-up shop.  The pop-up shop is located at 132 The Parade in Island Bay. The pop-up shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm although hours are likely to change.

The Island Bay Residents Association, Cycle Aware Wellington and interested stakeholders together with council are working together on a detailed engagement approach for consultation on creating a development plan for Island Bay. The first part of this plan is for The Parade and includes the best options route and design of the Island Bay component of the “southern corridor” cycle route development as well as access to local facilities, such as the beach and the shops. The group has not been set up to make decisions on behalf of the community, but to ensure every resident and stakeholder in the community has the opportunity to have input

into the new designs for The Parade. Consultation regarding the cycleway will take as long as necessary to get a suitable outcome and include consideration of a full range of options, including the status quo and original designs. The refreshed cycling programme now includes $6 million for the entire southern route, resulting in a cycleway from Shorland Park through to Pukeahu Memorial Park. Details will be made available publically next week and there will be lots of ways to have your say.  For more information, email islandbayres@gmail.com

The Wellington team beat the Lions 20-3 at Westpac Stadium on Saturday, August 6 – their first win in Super Rugby history. A Parade, packed to the brim with sporting stars, weaved its way through the capital’s CBD last Wednesday, giving Wellingtonians an opportunity to applaud their favourite rugby players.
