Local dairy a find list silver

How to reach us

Continued from page 1 The awards, which began at the beginning of July, aimed to search for the best of different stores and products around the Wellington region. Stores and products ranged from fish and chips to butter chicken to dentists to dairies. The competition saw Kelson Dairy in Lower Hutt end with the top prize, Ziggy’z in second and Stellin Street Store, also in Lower Hutt, in third. Ziggy’z owner, Byron Patel, said “it felt pretty good” to have come close to winning the ultimate prize. He said it was the first time in the six years he had been running the dairy he had been nominated for the award. To get the award, people had to text the radio station to vote for him he said. Byron said the secret to having the best dairy in town was to put the “community first”. “You’ve got to give service with a smile, touch hearts and know your customers well,” Byron said.

Consultation under way for bylaw Consultation is currently underway for the Hutt City Council’s Control of Alcohol in Public Places Bylaw. The bylaw would provide Police with a legal tool they could use to intervene where there was alcohol being consumed in public, before a situation escalated into a more serious situation. Work with police to create this bylaw has had Council put together evidence of incidents involving alcohol in public places with maps showing the areas they are proposing to become permanent alcohol free areas. The council is now consulting with residents on which

public areas in Lower Hutt, such as river banks, parks, beaches and public footpaths people think should be permanently alcohol free. There are three areas in Wainuiomata currently being consulted on. These include the main shopping are in Homedale Village, the town centre extending through Queen Street, the Strand and Hugh Sinclair Park and the block of shops on Norfolk Street. Council is also consulting on whether residents think all places in Lower Hutt should be alcohol free from 9am until 5am, or if Eastbourne and the Western Hills should

be exceptions to this. Principal policy advisor for the Hutt City Council Graham Sewell, said the reason there was an option to exclude Eastbourne and the Western Hills was due to “evidence showing a low amount of incidents related to the consumption of alcohol in public places in these areas”. Council said to make an area alcohol free they needed to receive evidence from residents. This could include a photo of alcohol bottles in a local park or an incident someone has witnessed or heard of, among other things. Council is also wishing to

hear from people who know of an area proposed to be an alcohol free zone however have never seen or heard of any alcohol related incidents and may want to suggest alcohol consumption is allowed.  To make a submission visit Your-Council/Have-yoursay/Consulting-on/controlof-alcohol-in-public-places/, email submissions@; or post your submission to Control of Alcohol in Public Places Bylaw, Hutt City Council, Private Bag 31912, Lower Hutt.

Students celebrate free ambulances By Emma McAuliffe

Local students turned up to school in their pajamas last week to celebrate ambulances being free. Fernlea School celebrated Onesie Day last Friday as part of the Wellington Free Ambulance’s annual appeal which sees people don onesie pajamas to celebrate the uniqueness of

the region’s ambulance service. Students across the school had been learning about the free ambulance and why it was important earlier in the week. Year five student Callum Pollard said he had learned in other parts of New Zealand the ambulance was not free. “In Auckland you have to pay for it but here anyone can ring up and get an ambulance,” he

said. Yea r four student Nina Faanaina said an ambulance had helped her when she needed to get aid for her father. “Once my dad fainted while we were crossing the road so I had to call an ambulance and then they came and they took him to our house,” she said. The students said they had learnt how to call an ambulance

and had taken part in basic first aid sessions earlier in the year. They said they were glad they had access to emergency services. “Everyone can be happy that they don’t have to spend $80 on an ambulance,” year 4 student Liana Campbell said.  For more information on the Wellington Free Ambulance head to

Great Pacific Playdate celebrates Tongan language week By Emma McAuliffe

A special play date was held last week to celebrate the Tongan language. The Pouma’ama Playgroup hosted the Great Pacific Playdate last Thursday at the Wainuiomata Community Hall to celebrate Tonga Language Week. Tonga Language Week is an annual event in New Zealand held to celebrate the language, arts and culture of Tonga. Senior regional advisor for the Ministry for Pacific Peoples, Alexa Masina, said the day’s focus was for the Pouma’ama playgroup to celebrate Tongan language and culture with the wider community. The playgroup meets twice a week to provide a Tongan early learning experience led by local mother Lisipeti Tuita. “It is a great opportunity for parents and caregivers to come together, learn and support each other while giving this education experience to our children,” Lisipeti said. “The unique focus is on the Tongan language and culture, and to provide that experience through play, storytelling and activities that we learn from our own heritage and upbringing,” Alexa said. The Playdate ran with the sup-

guage capability so coming together this way as a community gives the opportunity for not only the children to learn the language and culture but also parents too. “It’s intergenerational learning, iron sharpening iron,” Alexa said. Teresa Letoa at Naku Enei Tamariki agreed.

“It’s by community for community. It’s empowering people to be who they are and providing our children, mums, grandparents and other family members a space,” she said. “Our families are proud of their Pacific language and cultures. Language week is just one way to showcase this,” Alexa said.

Esther said she was excited by the ideas people had come up with for the Makeover so far, which included a piano in the resource bank from Clive’s Chemist and playhouses near Harcourts. She said she was looking

forward to the other ideas people would bring to the table when the makeover begins next Sunday. “It’s all about pride and participation,” she said.  For more information on the 7 Day Makeover head to or Love Wainuiomata’s Facebook page- wainuiomata2035/?fref=ts

ager Br uce Hodgins sa id despite their best effor ts, Council and contractors were not able to meet the deadline to complete it. “After discussions, we’ve agreed that it’s best to postpone the opening until Sunday, October 2.” Bruce said the design boast-

ed several special landscape features and custom-made play equipment and would be the only one of its kind in the North Island. “It has to be done right. An important part of the design is that the entire playground, including some complex landscape features, are accessible

to children. We do not want to sell families short by opening the playground before important finishing touches are completed.” “We did not make this decision lightly as we know that the community is very excited about the new playground. The playground will be open

in time for the second week of the school holidays.”  Avalon Park Playground will open from 10am on Sunday, October 2. The activities and entertainment set to be part of the Sunday, September 11 launch will take place on October 2 from 10am until 3pm.

Café catering for all By Emma McAuliffe

OAKS: Renee and Gabriel at Oaks current location. PHOTO: Emma McAuliffe

A local café has been helping out Wainuiomata’s oldest and youngest citizens. Oaks Café, currently located at Life City Church, was started as a kiosk to sell NZ Kids Food lunch packs to children and adults on their way to school or work. NZ Kids Food director Renee Ailao said since the café began they had been inspired by wanting to give children in the community a healthier option for lunch. The NZ Kids Food lunch packs include a sandwich, fruit, yoghurt and a small treat. “This place was made so that children could come in and grab a healthy lunch, we do about 100 lunches in a morning. It’s just amazing the reaction, weight loss and better behaviour in kids. If it works here, why can’t it work anywhere else,” Renee said. Renee said the café would

soon be moving to the Strand where she could begin to focus on local older citizens, as well as continue to support young people with the lunch packs. She said she had recently taken on the senior citizen’s challenge, posed by local Gabriel Tupou. Gabriel said he was inspired to start the challenge after locals had told him they wanted more opportunity to use their Super Gold Cards in Wainuiomata. “Oaks is showing leadership by taking on this challenge,” Gabriel said. Renee said she wanted the new café to reflect what the community wanted. “What it will do is create a space for our older people to connect with each other. We want to reflect what the community wants. What would people like to see in the community,” Renee said. She said she hoped Oaks would be open in their new location after the upcoming school holidays.

HUTT CITY COUNCIL WAINUIOMATA WARD My wife Aimee, our daughter Ellie, and I are proud to call Wainuiomata our home. We moved here in 2011. As a new resident, I wanted to contribute, become part of our community, and raise our family. I wanted to use my experience in community development, governance, and youth work to engage, so I stood for the Community Board in 2013. Since then, I’ve become Deputy Chairperson of the Board, and helped with projects such as naming the Pukeatua Bridge. I put the needs of our community first. I listen to,

advocate for, and collaborate with many. I’m proud of what we have achieved, and now feel compelled to take the next step. Wainuiomata is a diverse community, with voices from many cultures and ages.

Million dollar kitchens! We have a fabulous business for sale in Wellington right now, but before we get to that, let me tell you our story. Our story has all the usual highs and lows and a very lovely ending. My reason for writing it is we are looking for someone to take over from us. Yep! The business is a million dollar success, and plenty of people are interested, but we aren’t looking for just anyone to take over: we are looking for someone we believe in, and will really put their hearts into looking after our customers. Our story begins on July 4th 2012 when we first arrived in Wellington. It was a cold and blustery day (well, it was Wellington!) and we had just 23Kg of luggage and not enough winter clothes! As is typical for Wellington, the afternoon changed to a bright sunny day, and our mood lifted as we got the keys to the house we had rented, and went shopping to buy essential items and food. We soon found Wellingtonians are really genuine people, with big hearts. Neighbours came round and said hello, and lent us most of what we didn’t have, and even offered to make us a dinner. Thank you! Hazel and I opened the showroom in Lower Hutt, renting from a very kind landlord who has become a personal friend. Like all businesses we have had our ups and downs, especially in the early days when we made a few mistakes. I still feel like laughing and crying, even now, when I remember the first kitchen we installed. I had measured the upstand from the top of the benchtop instead of the bottom and when our installers came to do the installation, it couldn’t be fitted. We got a call from two very scared, 6ft tall installers, sitting in their van outside the house, saying this very little Dutch lady was very angry, and could we come down to the house ASAP. Needless to say, we put everything right, the fitters went back in and we had made yet another friend! The business is actually a franchise. Dream Doors NZ Ltd, provide all the support, systems, and training to get someone going, but of course it really became our little business. We soon moved on from upsetting our Dutch lady, to installing some fabulous kitchens, and as we got better and better, our customers got happier and happier. One of our highlights was a very lovely couple who treated us to a champagne dinner

at their house to say thanks for their fabulous new kitchen. In the early years, each month we spent a little more on marketing, and each month the business got a little bigger. These days, four years on, we get so many referrals from existing customers, or just turning up to the home show, that we sometimes have to book people in a month down the line. Nobody really minds waiting a little to get a fabulous new kitchen, and we became so good at renovating kitchens, instead of installing everything from scratch, that we managed to save a little of the environment, and a great deal of costs for each customer compared to the price of a new kitchen. “Amazing Kitchen Facelifts” became our Mantra. Not everything in life goes well though. Our son was made redundant, and so made a move down to Wanaka. He is somewhat of a daredevil and makes a living as a tandem-master skydiver. We missed our son and grandchildren dearly, and set in place a dream to put enough money aside that we could move to Wanaka. It wasn’t too hard. The business was going well, and we weren’t thinking of buying a pad as big as Ritchie McCaw or Sam Morgan, the TradeMe founder, who both have places there, but more something just out of town with a little bit of land, where most importantly we could have the grandchildren over. Now, being in Wellington meant that you have to enjoy the water and so, one day, Hazel took me sailing from Wellington yacht club for a birthday treat. Not bad considering she is somewhat nervous of the water. I returned the favour later in the year by taking her on a heli-flight on the waterfront, when I knew she was a little afraid of flying. That is life though. Sometimes a challenge comes along and you just have to learn to take them. Sometimes we let our worries get the better of us. Other times we seize an opportunity and go make the most of it. I hope we have been more in the latter camp most of the time. In our 3rd year in business we received an award for growing sales to over a million dollars in a year, and we stood proudly in front of all the other franchisees at the conference, as they cheered us on. Dream Doors is more like a small family than a franchise business network. Yep, the other people wanted to win the award, but they were genuinely pleased to see us succeed. Whilst we worked away in Wellington, we got the news that our second grandchild was due to be born. Flights

back and forwards to Wanaka were costing quite a bit, but our business continued to grow, and our savings were building. Suddenly someone came forward and made us an offer for the business. We were delighted. We agreed the sale, packed our bags, and planned our move down South! Oh my goodness, that seemed so easy, and suddenly two big things went wrong. Firstly, the person who bought the company, within just a couple of months had an illness in the family and couldn’t continue and more or less handed the business back, and secondly, Hazel become unwell, and had to have a big operation to put everything right. Luckily, Derek Lilly, the CEO of Dream Doors, who coincidentally lives in Wanaka too, made us a very kind offer. “Hey guys, come and work in Wanaka at the Head Office. We need all your expertise to train new people, and for a while please keep Wellington running from here”. What a lifesaver! Hazel recovered well from her operation and is now committed to working half-time at Head Office, and half time with the grandchildren. I, meanwhile, work full-time helping Dream Doors run smoothly. I also run Wellington from down here, which is not ideal, and hence we need to find a new person who will carry on with this great business and take it to the next level.

So who is that? Well, you will need $199k to purchase the business. It made $100k net, after salaries last year, so it shouldn’t take too long to pay your investment back. You also need to be somebody who likes meeting people. You get lots of enquiries and will be visiting a lot of homes – it’s a very popular business! You will also have the huge benefit of having qualified installers, who are fully experienced in the business, to assist you from day one! But you also need someone just as important! Someone who will stay at the showroom, do all the admin, and make the best cup of tea in the world! That has always been Hazel’s job, and I am proud to say, it’s been rather pleasing seeing the bank balance go steadily up on the back of good honest old fashioned work. So, if you are a couple, and fancy building your own successful business, but with lots of help from head office, give us a call. Oh, yes, there are two other points. You must be lovely people who are honest, and hard working. Our customers deserve that, and lastly, you must be able to make a good cup of tea, because installers won’t work for you if you can’t!  For further information, call John on 0272 008811 or Visit our website –

Open day held to welcome back tennis By Emma McAuliffe

The tennis season began last week with a school tournament and open day taking place. Local students had the opportunity to give tennis a go last Wednesday afternoon before the season started on Sunday with an open day. Four local schools, Wainuiomata Primary School, St Claudine Thevenet School, Fernlea School and Pukeatua Primary School took part in the event which saw year five and six students compete against each other in friendly tennis tournaments.

Junior Tennis convener Julie Day said the tennis club had been holding the school tournaments for the past seven years a head of t he ten n is season beginning. “It’s always run around the same time as tennis goes back, with girls playing each other in the morning and boys in the afternoon,” Julie said. The club had their annual open day on Sunday for families to have a hit before the summer season starts.  For more information on the Wainuiomata Tennis Club head to www.wainuiomatatennis.

Locals have had a great winter season with many wins across the board for local teams and athletes. The Wainuomata Hockey Club’s Premier Women’s team moved up from Premier 3 to Premier 2, this was considered to be a great achievement as this was second season Wainuiomata had a premier team. In rugby both the Women’s team and the Premier Reserves won their division finals and the

Premiers made it to the semifinal of the Jubilee Cup. The Wainuiomata Rugby club also saw seven members of the Women’s Team make the Wellington Pride squad and three players from the Premier team make the Wellington Lions. The Rugby League side saw the OGs make their final and the Premiers ending the season fourth on the table. Wainuiomata High School saw

many sporting successes with a record six players making Hutt Valley rep teams in Netball and many students being invited to trial for and made national squads. The school’s Premier 3 Netball team also won their final, making history for the school. The summer season for sport begins in a matter of weeks making way for locals to achieve more across the board.

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

Netball NZ makes rod for own back Netball New Zealand appear to be having an identity crisis. The national netball governing body looks set to ban players from playing for the Silver Ferns if they play in the new Australian netball league over the New Zealand one. The key player in the midst of this is centre and former New Zealand captain Laura Langman. The former Silver Ferns captain looks set to re-sign with the New South Wales Swifts in the new Australian competition instead of playing in the Kiwi event. So, Netball New Zealand look set to ban her from international play. This is a clear example of Netball

New Zealand channelling their inner-All Blacks. The New Zealand Rugby Union has the same stance that only players playing in New Zealand are eligible for the All Blacks. The difference between rugby and netball in this country is depth. New Zealand can’t afford to lose a player like Langman- the country doesn’t have the depth of player to replace her skill and experience. It’s admirable Netball New Zealand want to try to protect their own competition but let’s face it, the Australians are better than we are at netball currently and have always had better depth than we

have. The trans-Tasman netball competition proved that point with Australian franchises winning all but one of the titles. New Zealand teams were only competitive with each other so the competition was scrapped. So, with that in mind, I can’t blame Langman for wanting to stay in Sydney. The skill level will be higher, and it will pose more of a challenge. Netball New Zealand need to get off their high horse and realise that Laura Langman is worth more to the Ferns than the Ferns are to Langman at this point in her career.
