She was nominated for her services to Wainuiomata High School and its Kapa Haka group, as well as her involvement with Kohanga Te Ngahere, Wainuiomata Marae, and the Kohanga Reo movement in the revitalisation of the Maori Language.

Two local schools took part in Artsplash last week. Artsplash is a celebration of arts for children and features schools from around the Wellington region performing in both choir and dance routines. Wa i n u io m a t a P r i m a r y School took part in the choral side of the event, held last Wednesday.

Organising teacher, Rasela Hunt, said the school had fifty students as part of the choir from all year levels. She said the school entered Artsplash every two years. Rasela said the choir sang 12 songs as part of their performance which included songs with actions and songs with solo pieces. “Some of the songs the kids enjoyed included the Star

Wars theme with words added, Fly Me to the Moon, Stan Walker’s Aotearoa and ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’ from Hairspray,” she said. Rasela said the week before their performance the choir held a special “Cushion Concert” to raise money to take the bus into Wellington. The school raised $300 through the concert, she said. Rasela said a highlight for

the students outside of performing was meeting All Black Julian Savea. “They might not always remember performing but they will always remember meeting Julian Savea,” she said.  For more information on Artsplash head to www.wellington.govt.nz/ events/annual-events/artsplash

Four Lower Hutt boys have decided to make a difference in people’s lives for their Young Enterprise Challenge. Year 13 Hutt Valley High School students, Dylan Pringle, Micah Rillstone, Alex Butler and Caleb-Jack Williams, started Happy Feet this year to collect shoes for people in need. The group dropped 70 pairs of

shoes to the Wainuiomata Koha Shed on Monday with the help of National MP based in Lower Hutt, Chris Bishop. Dylan said they got the idea for the social enterprise after the cyclone in Fiji earlier this year and then decided to downscale it to fit the needs of Lower Hutt. “We thought there were quite a lot of people who might need shoes,” he said. “We went door to door to

our neighbours, shared it over Facebook, everyone has been a massive help,” teammate Micah said. The group collected over 150 pairs of shoes from classmates. Mr Bishop said he had been approached by the boys for help in looking for suitable places to donate to. He said he was happy to help the boys out in finding the locations.

“It’s a really cool idea,” Mr Bishop said. Claudeen Wihongi and other volunteers at the Koha Shed said they were so happy to have received the donation. “We were really surprised and grateful,” Claudeen said. For more information on Happy Feet head to their Facebook page www.facebook.com/ charityhappyfeet/?fref=ts

Free clinics available at local pharmacies By Emma McAuliffe

Free sore throat clinics are now available at two local pharmacies. Wainuiomata Pharmacy and Clive’s Chemist are both involved with the clinics run by Te Awakairangi Health Network to treat sore throats before they lead to rheumatic fever and heart damage. Te Awakairangi Health Network is an organisation focused on planning, funding and pro-

viding a wide range of primary healthcare services to people living in the Hutt Valley. The free clinics are available for children and teenagers aged from four to 19 years old and of Maori or Pasifika descent. As part of the clinics pharmacists have been trained to detect strep throat and are able to prescribe antibiotics for it, without patients having to go to the doctor. Evan Choie, co-owner at Wai-

nuiomata Pharmacy, said the clinics were important because a sore throat could be more of an issue than people thought. “It’s something you don’t want to leave. The clinics were initiated by Te Awakairangi Health Network and they are really good because they relieve pressure on GPs and on emergency doctors. They are saving tax payer money,” he said. Pharmacist at Clive’s Chemist, Vaudin Cole said the team

WAINUI SOFTBALL JUNIOR REGISTRATIONS

Local student wins fashion award A local student has come out the brightest following an inaugural reflective fashion design competition. Wainuiomata High School student Shannon Crome took out the ‘people’s choice award’ last week in New Zealand’s first reflective fashion design competition, Project Glow Wear. The competition asked designers and home-sewers to reimagine reflective wear for people walking, running and cycling at night. The task was to make new practical and fashionable garments or accessories with reflective detailing coming to life in car headlights at night. The awards night runway show on Saturday, August 20 saw 200 members of the fashion industry, competition entrants, active transport advocates and media line a concrete runway at the Wellington Underground Market. Shannon’s award was decided online with the Year 13 student mobilising her entire community to take home the prize. Voting took place via a Facebook album of all entries, and with the help of the Wainuiomata High School, and many other local supporters, Shannon’s hooded jacket with reflective typeface garnered a staggering 468 likes to take home the prize.

The local museum has a special exhibition running for National Heritage Month this year. The Wainuiomata Historical Museum Society has been donated film footage and photos of Brugger Industries from its time in Parkway. Brugger Industries was started by Frank Brugger in Petone as a factory making car seats, early lazy boy type seating and ovens. The main factory existed in Wainuiomata until 2000. As part of the exhibition the Museum will have footage from 1986 playing featuring many staff members from that time. President of the society, Gavin Wallace, said locals would be interested in seeing themselves and their families on screen in the footage, which

He said he was “very impressed” with the exhibit, as it had some photos he had never seen before.

REGIONAL COUNCIL ALL TOGETHER: Students from Fernlea School practice their moves. PHOTO: Supplied. By Emma McAuliffe

Local students made a splash last week at Wellington’s annual Artsplash. Fernlea School was involved with the dance section of Artsplash for the first time in years. Thirty one students from years four to six took part in the dance, which saw them bopping to Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’. Fernlea School assistant principal, Donna Goss said the preparation for Artsplash had been “great” “I got quite teary at the kids. Some of the kids were so unexpected,”

she said. Donna said the students, with the help of teacher Emma Collins, came up with the dance. “It gives the kids an experience they’ve never had before. The kids haven’t necessarily been dancers all their lives. “Our school has four valuesheart, can do attitudes thinking and connecting. We decided if we were going to do this in front of thousands of people then we will have the values,” she said. Donna said one of the highlights for her was bringing the children into the Michael Fowler Centre for

the first time. “A highlight for me was the “wow” from the kids when they walked in to the building. It was mind-blowing for them,” she said. “It’s been great to get them out of the classroom. We walked around the water front and ended up at the Cuba Street Fountain. It’s one thing to experience this with your families but another thing for them to experience it with their peers.” She said she would be keen for the school to take on Artsplash again. “Judging by [the kids] faces today I think they would be too,” Donna said.

As a former Mayor of our City David Ogden has the necessary experience and knowledge to take a leading role in the region on addressing significant issues like flood protection and climate change. This will have a positive impact for Lower Hutt residents. MAYOR RAY WALLACE AUTHORISED BY DAVID OGDEN, PO BOX 30038, LOWER HUTT

We are seeing so many people in the pharmacy right now with sore throats! Thankfully most sore throats, if treated quickly, can be easily managed with lozenges, throat spray or even gargling with salt water. Left untreated however, a sore throat can lead to rheumatic fever and possibly heart damage in children. Most sore throats get better on their own, but if strep throat is not treated with antibiotics it can cause rheumatic fever in at-risk children. Because rheumatic fever is such a serious illness, all sore throats in Maori and Pacific children and young people (aged 4 and above) need to be checked. If your child has ‘strep throat’, they’ll be given antibiotics to clear up the infection before it can develop into rheumatic fever.

If your child develops rheumatic fever they will need a lot of bed rest and time off school. They’ll need to stay in hospital for weeks, where they will have examinations and blood tests to check their condition. it more difficult for them to play sport or do other activities as they will have less energy.

As your Councillor I will work towards: • Improved community engagement and consultation • Providing enhanced services for young people • Infrastructure that supports our aging community • Increased financial investment in Wainuiomata • Protecting and promoting our natural environment

Stop sore throats hurting hearts

Rheumatic fever makes the heart, joints, brain and skin swollen and painful. While the symptoms of rheumatic fever may disappear on their own, the inflammation can cause rheumatic heart disease, where there is scarring of the heart valves. Rheumatic heart disease can be life threatening.

Drop in sessions on Shared Pathway held last week More than 30 people attended information drop-in sessions held about the Shared Pathway last week. Residents heard about the plans for Stage Two of the Wa i n u i o m a t a H i l l R o a d Shared Path Project at the sessions held at the library

last Wednesday evening and Friday afternoon. Hutt City Council’s senior project engineer Simon Cager said members of the project team were on hand to answer questions and show plans of the proposed shared cycling and pedestrian path for Stage

Two, which extends from the Pukeatua Bridge to Parkway. “Ma ny who attended the sessions commented the new shared path would be a great addition to the community, offer a much safer journey and be a significant improvement to the current unsealed and

narrow path from the Pukeatua Bridge to Wainuiomata,” he said. An information session on Stage One was held in February this year to detail a shared path from Bell Road to Pukeatua Bridge. Resource consents will be

lodged with councils soon to facilitate Stage One construction starting later this year and Stage Two construction starting in early 2017.  For more information about the project visit www.huttcity. govt.nz/wainui-path

Greater Wellington Regional Council The Greater Wellington Regional Council is a collective of representatives from Wellington and the Wairarapa. There are eight candidates standing for three positions for the Lower Hutt constituency of this council. Each candidate has been asked to prepare a 150 word summary of themselves and their policies. Locals will be able to vote for candidates in the upcoming elections which run between Friday, September 16 and Saturday, October 8.

Kath Allen I have been resident in Lower Hutt for 40+ years, am 61 years old and living in Stokes Valley. I am a Director and accounts manager for two family companies, trained as a nurse at Hutt Hospital and worked at Queensgate pharmacy for 25 years.

I have been following Regional Council issues and discussing them for years with my husband Fred Allen. I am a people’s person, that is approachable, adaptable, flexible and able to communicate complex issues. I wish and aim to make a difference and

promote the following: • Maximize safety of citizens with sound emergency management. • Responsible funding, and finances with predictability and stability. • Land use planning to reduce environmental impacts.

• Retain our natural heritage for future generations. • Excellent public transport. Vote for me and when elected I will be available to listen, meet you, know your issues and act in your interests.

ence includes being a business owner; Chair of Jackson Street Programme, Petone; Founder of Wellington Dress for Success; President Hutt Valley National Council of Women, other boards including Tennis Central and Wellington Chamber of Commerce, and

working with government agencies. This has created excellent connections for me to drive a growth strategy, and enables me to bring a business and not-for-profit view to the table. There are two main issues I am campaigning on: Affordable transport. We need to

review the pricing structure to users and ensure commuters are getting an efficient service whilst reducing traffic congestion; Housing. We need to work with government to ensure enough affordable housing and places for the homeless to shelter.

Ewen Bridge, the final part of a 20 year upgrade. Public communications about the area, including the hospital and business area of Lower Hutt have been rewarding. Public transport needs to be utilised more with petrol increases, student

fare rates, and Supergold card users benefiting in their health by getting out and about. Am very involved in many Lower Hutt organisations including Probus, JP, Seniors, Chamber of Commerce, Genealogy, Celebrant, and current

member Hutt Valley District Health Board. I am impartial, prudent, and sincere. Better communication, listening to you and action are my goals. AND I love what I do.

I am completing my first term as a Regional Councillor having served previously as a Wainuiomata Ward Councillor on Hutt City Council 2010 – 2013. Regional Transport is 56 per cent of our expenditure, Environment 15 per cent,

Water Supply 12 per cent, Regional Leadership 8 per cent, Flood Protection 6 per cent and Parks 3 per cent. There are too many cars on our roads (12,500 on Petone Esplanade everyday) with 70 per cent having only one person

in the vehicle. Working with Hutt City and Upper Hutt Councils on Flood Protection remain a high priority for our Region. I am standing for re-election to Greater Wellington Regional Council. Thank you for your continued support.

resilience and to ensure a safe water supply system. Progress has been achieved but more needs to be done. I chaired the Hutt Valley Floodplain Management Sub Committee which was responsible for driving the CBD

stop bank project – I get things done. I have experience in business and governance. I am Deputy Chair of the Hutt Mana Charitable Trust and Deputy Chair of Britannia House, Residence for the Elderly in Petone. I have proved I have the experience,

commitment and integrity which will be vital to protect the interests of the Hutt now and into the future. As an elected member of the Greater Wellington Regional Council I am standing for re-election on my record of getting things done.

and the region. Our three main issues are – • Flood Protection, a major spend over the next decade • Climate Change, a giant geographic and weather challenge for us • Reducing the high regional rates,

which have been near 10% in recent years I am a former mayor and councillor of Hutt City, a former regional councillor, with strong achievements, and a best practice believer. I am also a sitting Health Board

member. My career is in chartered accountancy, with my own business. Born in Wellington, mostly living and working in Lower Hutt, I love our great, unsurpassed region, and wish to serve you in it. Thank you.

best out of our resources. The local authorities and the Regional Council need to find ways to work more closely together to combine activities like Library services, Public Transport and Roading, even Housing.

Better value for the rating dollar is the objective, but to do this we need to put aside our petty parochialism, while continuing to treasure the strength of our local democracy. As a former MP and Mayor, I think

I can help bring a stronger sense of future direction to our Regional Council. My motive in putting my name forward is that I believe strongly in the value of service to others.

Their Future, Our Responsibility, Looking Ahead, Te Ao Hou These big Challenges are: Climate Change, Environmental Quality, Sustainable Economic Growth, Regional Transport (I support Public Transport and Student concessions) and Governance. My experience and knowledge make

me the ideal candidate. • Hutt educated; Civil Engineer with a career in Water and Soil Conservation, Wellington Region and Nationally including 30 years on the Hutt River. • Successfully managed establishment of Friends of: Waiwhetu Stream, Belmont Regional Park, Queen Elizabeth Re-

gional Park, Otaki and Waikanae Rivers. • I have Chaired National and International Boards and the Eastbourne Community Board. • Successful Sports Coach • Co- Founder of Hutt Valley Sports Awards with Ken Laban.

Wainuiomata Ward Councillors Councillors for the Wainuiomata Ward represent the views of residents of Wainuiomata to the Hutt City Council. There are five candidates standing for two positions on the Wainuiomata Ward. Each candidate has been asked six yes or no questions and four more open ended questions. Locals will be able to vote for candidates in the upcoming elections which run between Friday, September 16 and Saturday, October 8.

Campbell Barry

Josh Briggs

Leah Clark

1. Do you think Wainuiomata needs a second vehicle entrance? Yes. To encourage growth, provide better access, and offer an alternative route in case of an emergency or accident.

1. Do you think Wainuiomata needs a second vehicle entrance? Yes, to enable growth, increased access and safety.

1. Do you think Wainuiomata needs a second vehicle entrance? Yes. But I have some concerns and see some issues in getting to this desired outcome. There will be a burden on current ratepayers and current residents may find it disruptive.

2. Do you think a having a Retirement Village is a high priority for Wainuiomata? Yes. Ensuring our elderly residents have the option of staying in their home town, close to family, and who they know, is extremely important. 3. Do you think the Wainuiomata Community Board currently has a strong enough presence in the community? Yes. All members are heavily involved in the community, but as a collective the Board could be doing more. 4. Do you agree with the Hutt City Council’s Smokefree public places policy? Yes, but we must also focus on education and supporting people who want to give up smoking. 5. Do you support the Shared Pathway work happening on the Wainuiomata Hill? Yes 100 per cent. This project will provide safety for walkers and cyclists, and attract people from across the region. 6. Do you support a sinking-lid policy when it comes to liquor outlets in Wainuiomata? Yes. We don’t need any more bottle stores in our community. 7. What would you like to see happen to the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre? We need to encourage the owner to sell, preferably to someone within the region. Rezone part of the land to residential to support a more realistic redevelopment. 8. What do you believe is a reasonable increase in residential rates per annum? Average rate increases should be kept within the level of local government inflation, any additional increase should only occur with the support of the community.

2. Do you think a having a Retirement Village is a high priority for Wainuiomata? Yes, to allow our elderly to stay in Wainuiomata close to their family and friends. 3. Do you think the Wainuiomata Community Board currently has a strong enough presence in the community? No, the incoming Community Board should continue to build its profile and presence in the community. 4. Do you agree with the Hutt City Council’s Smokefree public places policy? Yes, but meaningful community engagement and consultation should have taken place before the policy was adopted. 5. Do you support the Shared Pathway work happening on the Wainuiomata Hill? Yes, it is great for the health and safety of everyone. 6. Do you support a sinking-lid policy when it comes to liquor outlets in Wainuiomata? Yes, but it needs to be implemented in a way that won’t prevent a second supermarket in Wainuiomata. 7. What would you like to see happen to the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre? I would prefer to see the current Mall demolished and a purpose built space for shops created that suits Wainuiomata’s current and future needs. 8. What do you believe is a reasonable increase in residential rates per annum? Rate rises should reflect the rate of inflation, as well as including the costs of new initiatives that have significant community support.

9. What do you consider is the most urgent infrastructure needed in Wainuiomata? The most immediate infrastructure priority is an upgrade of our underground network to ensure new and future housing developments don’t impact on current service levels.

9. What do you consider is the most urgent infrastructure needed in Wainuiomata? A second road into Wainuiomata. The sooner this gets approved and put into the Council’s long term budget the sooner action will take place.

Closing statement

Closing statement

It has been a privilege to serve as your Local Councillor for the past three years. Together, let’s tackle the challenges we face, and keep Wainuiomata moving forward.

Wainuiomata is a diverse community, with voices from many cultures and ages. With your support, I can bring them to the Council table. www.joshbriggs. co.nz

Kia Houpapa

2. Do you think having a retirement village is a priority? Yes. Our elderly people have contributed and continue to contribute to the community and want to be close to their families. 3. Do you think the Wainuiomata Community Board currently has a strong enough presence in the community? Yes, but I think they need to have a different approach to their task of reporting Wainuiomata’s needs to Hutt City Council by getting out and about more in the community. 4. Do you agree with Hutt City Council’s Smokefree Public Places Policy? Yes; of course I do! I have been involved in promoting Smokefree initiatives for many years because it contributes to too many deaths and financial hardship in the valley. 5. Do you support the shared pathway happening on the hill? Yes; this builds on the Pukeatua Bridge; recently opened that has increased foot traffic over the hill. 6. Do you support a sinking lid policy when it comes to liquor outlets in Wainuiomata? Yes; Alcohol causes significant problems in our community, such as crime, family violence, and harm to children, not to mention the financial hardship imposed on families. 7. What would you like to see happen in the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre? Consider the shopping needs of the community overall, not just in the Centre. More work to do here to answer that question. 8. What do you believe is a reasonable increase in residential rates per annum? We must consider what the rates are currently spent on, and the basic infrastructure that rates support. 9. What do you think is the urgent infrastructure needed in Wainuiomata? In Wainuiomata there needs to also be an increase of affordable, dry, warm rental housing and I think Council can take a bigger role.

Closing statement I would like to be your local Councillor that represents the ‘Heart of the Valley’.

Margaret Willard

1. Do you think Wainuiomata needs a second vehicle entrance? Yes. Besides events like last week, a major earthquake is coming sometime.

7. What would you like to see happen to the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre? I’d like it sold to an owner that wants to see it thrive long term.

1. Do you think Wainuiomata needs a second vehicle entrance? Yes, particularly when we have more residents to spread the ratepayer cost.

2. Do you think a having a Retirement Village is a high priority for Wainuiomata? No, the major developers in the market would have been here already if it was.

8. What do you believe is a reasonable increase in residential rates per annum? The per cent that allows for basic decent community services to be provided – without any frivolous spending.

2. Do you think a having a Retirement Village is a high priority for Wainuiomata? Yes.

3. Do you think the Wainuiomata Community Board currently has a strong enough presence in the community? Yes, they have been doing a good job. 4. Do you agree with the Hutt City Council’s Smokefree public places policy? Yes, one day the entire country will be completely smokefree.

9. What do you consider is the most urgent infrastructure needed in Wainuiomata? Community Development. Making the most of what we currently have on multi levels. A major employer is the actual most urgent – but every council nationally is wishing for one.

5. Do you support the Shared Pathway work happening on the Wainuiomata Hill? Yes, I just wish it was faster. 6. Do you support a sinking-lid policy when it comes to liquor outlets in Wainuiomata? Yes, there are more than enough already.

Closing statement I am standing because I believe I can make a big difference for the good people of Wainuiomata and Lower Hutt.

3. Do you think the Wainuiomata Community Board currently has a strong enough presence in the community? No. 4. Do you agree with the Hutt City Council’s Smokefree public places policy? Yes. 5. Do you support the Shared Pathway work happening on the Wainuiomata Hill? Yes. 6. Do you support a sinking-lid policy when it comes to liquor outlets in Wainuiomata? Yes, but at present the law apparently doesn’t make a distinction between stand-alone bottle stores and supermarkets, and we might not want to exclude another supermarket.

7. What would you like to see happen to the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre? Something that is uniquely 21st Century Wainuiomata’s, whether incorporating housing, retail, other businesses, entertainment or services for both local people and visitors. 8. What do you believe is a reasonable increase in residential rates per annum? What is affordable to residents while investing in growth so more ratepayers share the load. Regional Council rates increases are much higher than ours. 9. What do you consider is the most urgent infrastructure needed in Wainuiomata? Both a retirement village and a redeveloped mall. They should go hand in hand towards a more vibrant community and economy.

Closing statement Thanks to Wainuiomata’s development plan, the community is beginning to realise its enormous potential. A revamped mall and retirement should follow to accelerate the process.

Lower Hutt Mayoral Candidates There are five candidates standing for Mayor of Lower Hutt in this year’s elections. Each candidate has been asked six yes or no questions and four more open ended questions. Locals will be able to vote for candidates in the upcoming elections which run between Friday, September 16 and Saturday, October 8. Glenda Dawn Barratt and Phil Stratford did not answer the questions before deadline.

David Smith

James Anderson

Ray Wallace

1. Do you think Wainuiomata needs a second vehicle entrance? Yes but need to make sure we look at all options including tunnel.

1. Do you think Wainuiomata needs a second vehicle entrance? Yes - This is required so Wainuiomata can develop to its full potential. 2. Are you in favour of any amalgamations of any council in the Wellington region? No - The Auckland super city has been a disaster. Competition between councils is healthy - It promotes growth, makes us be more innovative and competitive. 3. Do you think the Community Boards are necessary additions to the Hutt City Council? No - Community boards are hugely costly. A non- official voluntary ratepayer association or a ward councillor could save ratepayers a huge expense. 4. Do you agree with the Hutt City Council’s Smokefree public places policy? Yes - But it’s not enforceable and the council wants to spend $42,000 on signs and stickers. Another huge amount of money that could be better spent. 5. Do you support the Shared Pathway work happening on the Wainuiomata Hill? Yes - I understand the council is only paying about 35-36% of the cost. With the rest coming from the Urban Cycle Fund and National Land Transport Fund. If we didn’t take these funds another council would. 6. Do you believe Hutt City Council meetings should be live streamed? Yes and No - It would be great if there was a cost efficient way. Other councils around the country have spent $30,000+, for a few viewers per video. Not really worth the cost. 7. What would you like to see happen to the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre? I wouldn’t want any ratepayers money spent on rejuvenation of the mall. I would wait for the current owner to sell the mall. Hopefully a group of locals who are passionate about the area buy it and redevelop it. 8. What do you believe is a reasonable increase in residential rates per annum? 5% decrease (over the first term) - I would look to decrease spending and increase the pool of ratepayers by getting unproductive land developed to its full potential. 9. What do you consider is the most urgent infrastructure needed in Lower Hutt? Gigabit Internet - I want Lower Hutt to have gigabit capability. This would drive investment and job growth in Lower Hutt - whilst healthcare and education sectors would benefit.

1. Do you think Wainuiomata needs a second vehicle entrance? Yes but we also need to have a good discussion with the community on where that would be located. 2. Are you in favour of any amalgamations of any council in the Wellington region? No not unless it had the support of the community. Lower and Upper Hutt merger is worth investigating. 3. Do you think the Community Boards are necessary additions to the Hutt City Council? Yes as long as they are proactive and seek the community’s view on issues. They can play a good connector between Council and the community if they work properly. 4. Do you agree with the Hutt City Council’s Smokefree public places policy? Yes It’s a policy that is endeavouring to bring about a more healthier environment for everyone particularly our children. 5. Do you support the Shared Pathway work happening on the Wainuiomata Hill? Yes absolutely crucial work that will help link Wainuiomata to the rest of the city for walker and cyclist. Great tourism opportunity. 6. Do you believe Hutt City Council meetings should be live streamed? Yes as long as it is done by Council for the purpose of informing the public. We would still want to encourage people to attend meetings in person though. 7. What would you like to see happen to the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre? Sadly it has become very old and tired. The departure of the Warehouse may open up new opportunities for smaller operated stores like clothing, shoe, book and furniture. 8. What do you believe is a reasonable increase in residential rates per annum? We have had the lowest rate increases in the region for the past 6 years under my Mayoralty so continue that around inflation plus 1% for rejuvenation. 9. What do you consider is the most urgent infrastructure needed in Lower Hutt? Flood protection to deal with Climate change and sea level rise. Cross Valley link to enhance traffic movement across city particularly from Wainuiomata and eastern areas.

Closing statement

Closing statement

Lower Hutt has so much potential to be great. I hope by focusing on core infrastructure and development I will be able to unleash the full potential of Lower Hutt.

I am a Mayor with a proven track record of service, commitment, vision and results. Wainuiomata is identified by Council as a growth area, we will see that prosperity for Wainuiomata.

2. Are you in favour of any amalgamations of any council in the Wellington region? No. 3. Do you think the Community Boards are necessary additions to the Hutt City Council? Yes. 4. Do you agree with the Hutt City Council’s Smokefree public places policy? Yes. 5. Do you support the Shared Pathway work happening on the Wainuiomata Hill? Yes. 6. Do you believe Hutt City Council meetings should be live streamed? No. Seen enough of even children performing for camera. Also costs. 7. What would you like to see happen to the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre? Ideally local ownership not using Council money. Crowd fund. Long term shopping Centre with variety of decent accommodation above. Short term cardboard stores and market. 8. What do you believe is a reasonable increase in residential rates per annum? Ideally none but no more than 2%. 9. What do you consider is the most urgent infrastructure needed in Lower Hutt? Flood control.

Closing statement Wainui communit y needs urgent debate on Second entrance so there is a united front on which option best suits before issue decided for us.

Couple gets the help they need A Taranaki man has been staying in the Mary Stewart House following a flooring diagnosis. Born, bred and living on a Taranaki Dairy farm, Tony Dravitzki is a quintessentially Kiwi bloke, a semi-retired farmer whose into “hard yakka, the outdoors and family”. In April, the 57 year old found out he had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia a cancer normally found in children. Since then the wheels have been in non-stop motion, propelling him on a journey of healing. After a few weeks staying in Palmerston North for chemotherapy, Tony and his wife Denise had to move to Wellington for stem cell replacement. They found refuge under the roof of Margaret Stewart House

- the Cancer Society of Wellington’s onsite accommodation at Wellington Hospital, for out-of-towners needing cancer related treatment. “I couldn’t really be here to support him without Mary Stewart House,” said Denise. “I just wouldn’t have been able to do the job that I do as his support person. We have been able to have the kids and grandkids here, to stay in our room too. It is so, so great.” “Yeah I agree,” Tony said. “Without a doubt, Mary Stewart House has lifted an incredible amount of stress off my shoulders. I spent two whole weeks in isolation and Denise was allowed to stay at Mary Stewart House which is five minutes away. That made the world of difference. It’s another home away from home for us.”

Squash Club celebrates 40 years By Emma McAuliffe

The Wainuiomata Squash Club celebrated their ruby reunion with a special weekend last week. The club held their 40th reunion at the weekend with a meet and greet event, tournament and dinner function. Organiser Julie Day said the event had been “popular”. “We’ve had people come from Christchurch and Waikanae to be at the event,” she said. In his History of Wainuiomata Squash Club report, club chairman Chris Wright said the club was started in 1976 to provide another club for sports people in the valley. “It was also to act as a training facility for the senior rugby club members during the off season to keep fitness levels up.” From 1984 until 2004 the Squash Club aimed to purchase the facilities from the Rugby club, becoming debt free in 2004. “The Wainuiomata Squash Club has always been fortunate to have strong committee members who have been determined to prove that their sporting facility is one of the best in the region. “This continued passion and community spirit is recognised throughout the squash fraternity at both local and National levels,” Chris said.

Prize giving held for senior rugby

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

The media versus McCaw How much is too much Richie McCaw? It feels like the worm is turning for arguably the greatest All Black ever as he is paraded at sporting events, social events and even his own movie premiere. A man who could do no wrong after leading his rugby mad country to two World Cup final wins is reaching exposure saturation point, right? McCaw has been portrayed, by others not himself, as a quiet, humble, typical Kiwi guy. Yet the first year of his rugby exile has been anything but quiet. But I don’t believe it is all his fault. McCaw got engaged - most people do. He supported said fiancée with her Olympic quest - we all would do the same thing in that position. He competed in a multisport event - a common occurrence for the fit and able. All of those reasonably generic things gain added scrutiny because he is Richie McCaw. Sure there is his movie and home-

town of Kurow wanting to make a statue of him (which looks hideous in early drafts) but this is the price he pays for his success and the price we pay for having media who have become obsessed over the ‘celebrity’ instead of the news. Stories on McCaw, Lorde, Sonny Bill Williams, Steven Adams and even Anna Guy get way too much priority for the complete lack of news value they have. In a weird way, McCaw should be applauded for accepting the media scrutiny as well as he does. Perhaps he is a shy, quiet guy but it’s unlikely that we, as New Zealanders will ever get to find out. For the next 50 years he will be wheeled out at every major rugby moment and let’s be honest, this is New Zealand so there will be plenty of them. Brace yourselves for the McCaw wedding album, McCaw’s first child - it’s all coming. Don’t like it, don’t read it and don’t follow me into the cinema to watch his movie this week.

Locals were celebrated for their talent on the pitch at the weekend. The Wainuiomata Rugby Club prize giving was held on Saturday night to celebrate the successes of the senior players. A junior prize giving was held on Saturday morning. Club president, Larry Gladwell, said the event had changed format this year and prize winners were interviewed by two premier team players, Teru Time and Attila Va’a on their successes. Larry opened Saturday night’s prize giving and congratulated the teams on their

successes. “Thank you to our major sponsors and our team sponsors. We’ve had a good season and we’re always looking for new players for next year,” he said. The players of the year for each team were Robbie Jack for the 80/85s, Justin Wilson for the Colts, Maryann Collins for the Womens, Matty Jacobs for the Premier Reserves and Waiariki Koia for the Premiers. As part of the ceremony the club was also presented with an All Black’s rugby ball by the family of the late Dave Skipper, for whom the club will start a team in memorial of next year.
