Continued from page 1 “It will be a quiet affair, we are too old to be dancing on tables,” she said. Joyce said the pair was formally introduced by a friend in Wellington in 1954, while Frank was in the police force and she worked in an office. She said the pair married in Featherston as they both had farming backgrounds. “It was a really nice ceremony. It was a beautiful day and a lovely wedding,” she said. They moved to Wainuiomata in 1959 and have lived at their current address for the entire 57 years. “We lived in Wellington and our first two children were born in Wellington, Ruth was six weeks old when we moved here,” Joyce said. The couple has four children, fifteen grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. They credit their success in

marriage to the way they were brought up. “It’s about having good values,” Frank said. “It’s also really about the three ‘l’s’, love, loyalty and laughter,” Joyce added. Highlights for them of their marriage include trips

ove r s e a s , volu nt e e r i ng with various organisations throughout Wainuiomata including the Croquet Club, and cubs and being surrounded by family. “The house is never empty, there’s always family here. This is the emptiest it has

been in a while,” Joyce said. Their advice to newlyweds in their family was simple. “Just give and take and when the going gets tough the tough get going,” Joyce said. “You just work together, and we still do,” Frank said.

Wainuiomata Library update underway Visitors to the Wainuiomata Library may have noticed some changes happening recently. Work has been happening in the front foyer to develop spaces in the library into more functional areas for different users of the community hub. A spokesperson for the Hutt City Council said the work was about “encouraging greater use of the Wainuiomata Hub by the community, making it more multifunctional for different types of activities”. They said this work would include making the old Wainuiomata Council Chambers in to more of a multi-use space, from community board meetings to running library programmes to having open meeting spaces.

The room would also be fitted with a new projector and AV equipment, they said. Other work happening includes removing the wall between the foyer and library to open up the area and turning the existing smaller meeting room into a community hub office so all hub partners would work in an open plan space Hub partners set to work in the open plan space include Hutt City Libraries, YOUth Inspire, WaiPESI, Love Wainuiomata Incorporated and Wainuiomata Sportsville. The work is set to be completed by early October with no disruptions to library services expected during this time.

Local singers perform at Maori Music Awards


Need your bike serviced? We’ll pick it up and drop it off FOR FREE!

By Emma McAuliffe

Two locals had the chance to be stars at the Waiata Maori Music Awards earlier this month. The Awards, held in Hastings on Friday, September 9, were established to acknowledge and honour the keepers, teachers, promoters, creators and performers of Maori music. The event also included the Maori Music Expo which involved workshops on Taonga Puoro, traditional Maori music instruments, vocal technique, composition and turntablism, held at the Hawke’s Bay Opera House Plaza. Local musician, Tyna Keelan took Wainuiomata High School students and Mana Ake artists Reriti Moeahu and Awhina Lambert to the awards. Tyna, who performs regularly at the awards, said he took the two to perform at an emerging artist’s showcase and experience what an awards show was like. “They got to meet some of their idols and have the chance to do some networking. Reriti’s first single ‘Manu Tui’ was released last week so it coincided well with that,” he said. Tyna said it was a great experience for the trio. “It’s the first time I’ve ever taken anyone to the awards with me,” he said. Following their performance at the showcase Reriti and Awhina had the opportunity to open for well-known singer, Rob Ruha, in Porirua at the weekend.

Wainuiomata Choir chairperson, Miriam Chamberlain said the concert, titled ‘Famine to Feast’ would showcase well-known and unusual works reflecting times of need and times of plenty. “While this is an unusual mix there are numbers that everyone will be familiar with along with new and interesting songs chosen to portray the adverse effects of famine as well as a celebration of food,” she said. The concert would be conducted by musical director, Sue Robinson and accompanied by Elizabeth

The theme revealed unexpected depths and challenges for us, not only the horror of famine, but also war, and the wider issues of what sustains us and how we experience deprivation.” There would also be songs about the delights of a wide variety of food. These would include songs from

As part of her visit to the co-op Ms Whaitiri had the opportunity to speak to Pastor Andrew Sau and two regulars to the co-op, Marie Dickson and Denise Anglesey. Marie told Ms Whaitiri her favourite thing about the co-op was how cheap the food was. “Fruit and vegetables here are 50 per cent cheaper than the supermarket,” Marie said. Andrew said following on from the co-op he hoped to start cooking lessons for people to learn how to cook the food provided weekly. “I want to start cooking lessons at the college, I just pray to God that

Fundraising for Japan By Emma McAuliffe

Local students have been fundraising for their trip to Japan next year. Several students from Wainuiomata High School will be jetting off to Japan in the September school holidays in 2017. Year 10 student, Lydia Belworthy, said she was looking forward to going overseas to see the different cultures. “It will be good to see how the different school systems work,” said year 12 student John Martin. “It will be good to see the different life styles,” year 10 student,

Tessa Smoothy added. Each student would have to fundraise $2500 to make the trip. The trio said the group had been fundraising for the last few months, trying out different ways to make money. This included holding raffles and bake sales, as well as selling chocolate. They said they had two big upcoming events, the first being a drive in movie. Tessa said the drive in movie would be hosted at the Life City Church. “We will be showing the movie Grease because it is quite a wellknown drive in movie,” she said.

Tessa said they would next be working at the stadium, cleaning up after the Mitre 10 cup match between Wellington and Taranaki on Sunday, October 9. The three said they had learned a lot from their fundraising efforts. “People are very generous,” Lydia said.  Wainuiomata High School Grease Drive In fundraiser will take place on Saturday, October 1 at Life City Church. Gates open at 7pm for 8.30pm start. For more information or to book tickets contact Helena Patuwai on 021844065 or email helena.patuwai@teohu.

Woburn Home resident Harry Buttner and clinical nurse manager Anneke Barkwith reveal one of the home’s new Monopoly themed signs.

BUSINESS MAKE OVER Not long ago Wainui grew. Most house and roads around were new. Working bees did here abound. The future looked so very sound. Time we smarten up the place. Raise the tempo and the pace. In the past with effort grew. Now it’s up to me and you.

A life worth living at Woburn Home by Enliven An elder-centerd community At Woburn Home we take every opportunity to bring companionship, spontaneity, fun and meaningful activity into the lives of elders. We’ll support you to continue doing the things you love in a way that’s right for you. And Enliven’s retirement apartments are right next door, a perfect arrangement for couples who need different levels of support. Positive ageing services We offer a full range of positive ageing services, including rest home, hospital and dementia care, as well as short term respite and health recovery care.

The social life Residents of Woburn Home enjoy the busy social calendar and stimulating recreation programme, which make for a vibrant and engaging atmosphere. Day activity programme Woburn Home hosts a day activity programme for older people living in the community. Activities vary depending on what the attendees are interested in, but popular ones include baking, woodwork, bowls, and board games. Woburn Home’s day programme runs every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10am-3pm.

There’s no place like home The residents and staff from Enliven’s Woburn Home in Lower Hutt are leaving no stone unturned when it comes to making their home feel like home, not a hospital. Instead of using traditional wing names, like ‘C Wing’, Enliven homes are encouraging residents to name the different areas of their homes. Anneke Barkwith, clinical nurse manager at Enliven’s Woburn Home in Lower Hutt, says the home’s residents recently decided to rename the wings and lounges after the streets on a Monopoly board. “Now they have an actual address, for example their room could be 12 Vine Street, which brings a sense of normality to their lives.” Anneke says the shift is part of Enliven’s efforts to make the homes homely. “It gives a sense of warmth to a rest home. By changing the way we communicate things like that we can help change

how people feel about where they live and their sense of identity.” Woburn Home resident Harry Buttner, who came up with the Monopoly idea, says he enjoys his new address. “I don’t like corridors and wings – they remind me of a hospital. Monopoly is a bit more fun and we all recognise it. I like the new signs and I like living on Bow Street.” Enliven’s Woburn Home and Apartments at 57 Wai-iti Crescent in Lower Hutt provides a full spectrum of positive ageing services including retirement apartments, rest home, hospital and dementia care, as well as respite, health recovery and a popular day activity programme. Transport to and from the day programme is available for Wainuiomata residents every Thursday.  For more information free phone 0500 36 54 83 (that’s 0500 ENLIVEN) or visit

Local girl sets sights on People’s Choice scholarship By Emma McAuliffe

A local girl is in the running for a national scholarship. St Joseph’s Maori Girls’ College student and Wainuiomata resident, Shanelle Smallman is currently in the running for the AMP People’s Choice Scholarship which sees the public vote online for who they would like to see benefit from the money offered. Shanelle said she applied for the scholarship as a few girls in her year had also applied and she thought she would like to give it a go.

“I applied online and answered multiple questions which included what my dream was, what the scholarship would contribute to and why I thought I deserved it,” Shanelle said. She said her dream was to become “a successful Maori journalist that specialises in the field of broadcasting”. “My passion for presenting, speaking and Te Reo Maori helped lead to my decision,” Shanelle said. Shanelle said if she were to win the scholarship it would go towards meeting the financial requirements in studying

a Bachelor of Arts at Victoria University majoring in Maori and Media Studies or the New Zealand Broadcasting School in Christchurch. She said if she were to give any advice to other young people in Wainuiomata it would be to be “persistent”. “Don’t let obstacles stop you f rom reach i ng you r goa l,” Shanelle said.  To vote in the AMP People’s Choice Scholarships head to www. vote/139319/ by 11.59pm Sunday, October 2.

New house for local students By Emma McAuliffe Terrence Hajdu, Raiha Nanai and Tamati NanaiVermeeren with the whare iti.

Local kindergarten students have a new toy house to play in thanks to a member of the family. Pencarrow Kindergarten welcomed the new ‘whare iti’, small house, last month after it was donated by teacher Amy Kamo’s uncle, Duncan Hill. The kindergarten also has three students related to Duncan, Terrence Hajdu, Raiha Nanai and Tamati Nanai-Vermeeren. Amy said the whare iti had been made from different woods, and included pieces made from the old floorboards of the Blenheim movie theatre. “He just picked it up. It’s the first time he’s made something for us as he’s from Foxton,” she said. Head teacher Dawn Summers said the idea to get a whare iti came from the students’ interest in enclosures. “We wanted something natural looking and it all stemmed from enclosures. The house comfortably fits three students playing in it,” Dawn said. Dawn said the kindergarten had elected to call it a whare iti rather than a dollhouse to break traditional gender norms. “We didn’t want to call it a dollhouse as traditionally they are seen as toys for girls. It’ll be interesting to compare how boys use it to how girls use it,” she said.

A month of Christmas


It may only be September but planning for Christmas has already begun at Hutt City Council. This year’s celebrations will build on the success of last year’s Pop-Up Carols with the addition of a large event in Dowse Square on Saturday, December 17. Hutt City Council’s city promotions manager Brad Monaghan said they had a great response last year. “People loved the concept of bringing Christmas to the suburbs and having a series of events meant there was more than one option for busy families to choose from. “This year we’re adding a larger-scale event called Christmas in Dowse Square.

It combines the magic of the old Christmas in the Park event with the spirit of a quintessential Kiwi summer Christmas.” Christmas in Dowse Square would feature festive entertainment and activities from afternoon to evening including sing-along carols, three pantomime sessions, roving circus acts and performances from local groups. A sum mer Ch r istmas would be celebrated with children being invited to decorate jandals as Christmas tree decorations, a giant sandpit to play in, and photo booths with kiwiana backgrounds. Roa m ing “self ie-elf ies” would also be there to take photos and turn them into

Christmas cards. “Replacing the old Christmas in the Park event with this exciting line-up and spreading the cheer across the month gives more of our community an opportunity to join in. As a single outdoor event, Christmas in the Park was also highly weather-dependent, so multiple events make our plans more resilient,” Brad said. “Together with new Christmas flags across the city this year in different languages, December in Lower Hutt is the place for everyone to get into the Christmas spirit.” Pla n n ing of the Ch r istmas events is underway and confirmed dates, locations and other details will be available soon.

principal Janette Melrose said the event had been running for approximately seven years. “One of our ex-teachers introduced it as she was a head student at her old school and she thought it would work well here. It’s about getting staff and students together to have fun and raise money for charity.” Money raised from this year’s Spirit Week was elected to go to Te Omanga Hospice.

Wellington Home & Garden Show

Fri, Sat & Sun 10–5

Westpac Stadium Waterloo Quay



Adult $8, Senior Special $5 (Friday Only), Under 16 Free

Fresh Ideas & New Innovations at Wellington Home & Garden Show Packed with the latest looks, new products and huge variety, Wellington’s largest and only spring home show will open its doors at the Westpac Stadium this Friday. For three action-filled days, over 220 exhibitors will gather under one roof to bring together everything essential in home improvement. Show director, Daniel Joll, said, “Spring is the season of the home makeover and the show will provide all the inspiration, products and expert guidance that homeowners need to crack into their improvement projects. Better still, many of the products and services will be at special show-only prices and they will all be under the one roof. “ “Visitors will be spoilt with the latest choices in landscaping, plants, garden art, sculptures, spa pools, barbeques and a host of other outdoor products. For those keen to transform their indoor spaces, there will also be kitchens, bathrooms, furniture, homeware, air conditioning, bedding, renovators and everything in between. Show-goers can bring along their plans to discuss with the experts onsite, browse for home makeover accessories, or simply gather ideas.” Mr Joll said. Springfree Trampolines will be displaying the world’s first smart trampoline, which features an outdoor interactive digital game

system that encourages children to go outside and be active. The ground-breaking ‘tgoma’ system was designed in New Zealand and uses technology to transform screen time from an isolating, sedentary activity, into a healthful, engaging experience for the entire family. The on-tramp system includes high-energy activity games, educational games for exercising both body and brain, and fitness training apps for all ages. The clever new concept is a finalist in the 2016 New Zealand Innovation Awards, which will be announced in October. One lucky visitor will walk away with The Hits Big Spender show prize, simply by entering the prize draw at the show entrance. The $20,000 home package comprises an outdoor barbeque table, garden benches and tool shed from Northpac Timber Newlands ; Resene paint/wallpaper and/or curtains; a crystal chandelier from LED R; plus retrofit double glazing from Insulmax. Designed with the urban property in mind, the experts at Dirty Work will create a courtyard display garden, featuring a contemporary pergola. Modern and easy-care, it will contain a selection of mostly native plants, many of which are hardy, making this outdoor area well-suited to Wellington conditions.

Prepare for summer! Get all the ideas you need for indoors and out at the Wellington Home & Garden (23-25 Sept).

Local boy proves talent at baseball

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

A young local baseball player proved to be a standout when he travelled overseas last month. Twelve-year-old Tane Mumu played in the New Zealand U13 Ripken All Star Baseball at the Cal Ripken World Series held in Maryland, United States of America in August. Tane proved he had what it took to play baseball at the highest level in their age grade by producing top performances at the Ripken competition. “I loved it, the feeling of representing my country in baseball has always been my dream and it finally came true,” Tane said. “I’m planning on playing baseball for a very long time and hope to play college and professional ball in the United States in the future.” Tane, who played as middle fielder, won the gold glove award for best second baseman in the tournament and was selected in the Cal Ripken World

How about those ‘Next Year’ Warriors? Let’s change the New Zealand Warriors name to the ‘Next Year Warriors’. The name is appropriate because let’s be honest, that’s when they are most exciting - when you’re thinking about next year. 2016 ended in a shambles, like most years do and the fallout from it has been just as predictable. Calls to sack coach Andrew McFadden have been listened to and former Kiwis captain Stephen Kearney will take over in 2017 with McFadden staying on as an assistant coach. There has also been speculation of a major signing in Kieran Foran. Again - typical Next Year Warriors. The fans are loyal, blindingly loyal at times but yet again this club has let them down. The issues have rarely been the coaches or the talent of the players, the issue has been mental. Not just the mindset of the players but also the management and ownership. There is something horribly wrong with the energy and aura around the club. The start of the season always has pundits far more informed than I tipping the Warriors to be contenders, only for the team to prove they are pretenders. For years, Kiwis felt the Warriors never got the rub of the green with the officials but it’s been 21 years of mediocrity more than success. Will a coaching change help? History suggests no. Will the signing of Foran help? Possibly but the signings of Isaac Luke, Roger Tuivasa- Sheck and Ryan Hoffman were meant to help too. Foran may be able to offer support to Shaun Johnson, who, on his day is one of the best playmakers in the competition. But he sums up the club as a whole. On their day, the Warriors can beat anyone but more often than not, that day never eventuates.

Series All-Tournament team. He said he credited his success to his team and coaches. “While I thought the award was a reward for good play, the main reason was my awesome coaching staff and team that equally deserves the award,” Tane said. Tane’s parents, Neil and Shelley, said they were delighted when he won his award. “As parents and family, we were very proud. To see your child represent New Zealand at their chosen sport, excel and win an award like this is fantastic and mind blowing,” they said. “There are a lot of people in Wainuiomata and Lower Hutt who have contributed to Tane’s success in many ways. Coaching, donations, advice… he is very much a product of the hard work that has helped him achieve his sporting dream and as they say, ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’”
