7.5 quake hits

Capital affected by quakes, slips and flooding By Nikki Papatsoumas

The capital came to a standstill earlier this week after a magnitude 7.5 earthquake rocked most of the country early on Monday morning. GeoNet said the quake, which was centred 15km north-east of Culverden in Canterbury, at a depth of 15km, struck

around 12.02am. Since the quake struck, rousing Kiwis from their beds all over the country, there have been more than 1000 aftershocks. A tsunami warning, which followed Monday’s earthquake, forced locals along the capital’s south coast to pack up and head for higher ground. Continued on page 2

Shaken up Continued from page 1. Lyall Bay resident Joe Reich said he was proud of how his community acted in the wake of the disaster. “It was absolutely brilliant, that’s the only word I can sum it up with. Once you got up along Sutherland Rd, there were so many cars up there.” He said the atmosphere was “supportive” and there was a lot of concern. “You noticed a lot of people along the way would stop and ask each other if they were okay.” Joe said following the quake the sea at Lyall Bay Beach was pulled out by at least 200 metres from where it would normally be – something he had never seen in the 14 years he lived in Lyall Bay. Eastern ward councillor for the Wellington City Council Simon Marsh said the message following Monday night’s earthquake had been consistent. “If you are on the south coast you need to get to higher ground and people were conscious of the fact they needed to move.” Many Lyall Bay locals were left wondering why a tsunami siren did not go off following Monday’s quake. Simon said while he had always believed a siren was necessary, emergency management teams had believed it would not be effective, when reviewed in the past. “I still believe it is something that could be considered and reviewed,” Simon said. Deputy mayor Paul Eagle, who lives along Wellington’s southern coast, said he and his family moved to higher ground after Monday’s tsunami warning. He said people were now very aware of how important it was to be prepared

in the event of an emergency. “People are going to have to be really ready because if there is a big earthquake you are only going to have a limited amount of time,” he said. Meanwhile, the capital’s CBD came to a standstill on Monday as damage to buildings, roads and footpaths was surveyed. Glass lay scattered across Wakefield St, Featherston St was closed to the public and Wellington’s waterfront sustained a significant amount of damage. On Monday, the council said it had dedicated teams Invercargill checking on the safety of council buildings, the central business area and other key infrastructure across the city. By yesterday, the city was mostly back to normal, although a few areas remained cordoned off to the public. Wellington Mayor Justin Lester said community response to the earthquake had been “outstanding”. “People were self-evacuating from their homes in the city, they did a really good job.” The mayor said Wellington’s buildings, infrastructure, roading network and tunnels all stood up incredibly well. However, he said the reclaimed land along the waterfront proved to be “a real eye-opener” after extensive damage was discovered and ferries were left stranded in the harbour due to damage to the terminal. Meanwhile there were fears a building on Molesworth St could collapse, due to structural damage caused by the quake. The area surrounding the building remained cordoned off to the public yesterday.

Georgie Carter’s Mt Victoria home following Monday’s quake. By Nikki Papatsoumas

A local woman said she thought she might die when Monday morning’s earthquake hit - destroying many of the possessions in her Mt Victoria home. Georgie Carter, who lives on the ninth floor of an apartment complex on Brougham St in Mt Victoria with her partner, said she was watching a movie when the 7.5 magnitude quake struck. “Next minute there was a bit of shaking – then it started getting

really bad,” she said. “We were just standing in the doorway while it was happening. We thought we were going to die.” Georgie said when the shaking finally stopped, she picked up the closest clothes and shoes she could find and ran out the door. “There were other people all running out and they were just standing in the car park and on the street.” After spending a night with a friend, Georgie said she and her partner were now staying

in a motel. “We went back Tuesday morning and everything was everywhere, our microwave was broken, lots of kitchen stuff is broken. “Our speakers and computer is on the ground and our bedroom drawers are broken.” She said she was now too terrified to return home. “It is very stressful; it has just been a terrifying time. It is just so overwhelming and I haven’t really got much sleep.” Georgie said in light of the

recent earthquake she has realised how important it is to be prepared for an emergency. “I feel like we definitely were not prepared before this – we didn’t have water and we didn’t have food.” She said she would now ensure she was prepared for the future.  Are you prepared?

First the quake - then the rain

Community tennis courts

By Nikki Papatsoumas

The southern and eastern suburbs have three tennis courts open for public use for those who want the chance to hit a ball around in the summer. Cog Park in Evans Pay, Hataitai Municipal Tennis Courts, and Martin Luckie Park in Berhampore all have public tennis courts able to be used by anyone throughout summer without having to join a tennis club. For more information on the courts head to the Wellington City Council website.

Wellington’s southern and eastern suburbs experienced surface flooding and slips, after a deluge of rain hit the capital on Tuesday. This comes after a magnitude 7.5 quake shook people out of bed early Monday morning. On Tuesday, a severe weather warning was in place for Wellington, MetService said. MetService said an active front, moving eastwards across the lower and central North Island, was preceded by heavy rain and north to northwest gales. Wellington also experienced gusts of wind up to 130km/h. In Island Bay, The Esplanade and C lyde St were both affected by the heavy downpours. The Basin Reserve opposite Patterson St also experienced surface flooding on Tuesday. In Happy Valley, Happy Valley Rd and Murchison St flooded and in Miramar there was significant

surface flooding along Ira St and Para St. Island Bay resident Hannah Stuart said she woke up on Tuesday morning to a torrential downpour. “Our whole back courtyard was completely f looded. When we opened the garage a huge stream of water came rushing out.” She said as the rain continued to pour, a huge “stream” of water flooded down the bank behind her house. Hannah said she was lucky the inside of her house was not damaged by water. Meanwhile, the Wellington City Council urged locals to take care in Tuesday’s storm, and to ensure it didn’t shift or move items already loosened by Monday’s earthquake. State Highways in and out of the capital were also closed off by surface flooding The New Zealand Transport Agency advised all motorists to avoid unnecessary travel, as several highways in and out of the city were closed due to surface flooding.  Was your home affected by flooding?

Airport terminal extension officially opened Wellington Airport’s new $58 million terminal extension was officially opened last week. The new arm of the airport was opened at a ceremony by Prime Minister John Key, at a ceremony last Wednesday. The main terminal building and apron has been extended by the equivalent of 12 basketball courts, and includes more parking spaces for airplanes, improved passenger facilities,

a centralised screening point and easier movement for travellers throughout the terminal. Wellington Airport chief executive Steve Sanderson said the extension could cater for up to 1500 additional passengers. “Passenger numbers are up by 5.6 per cent with a record five million domestic passengers travelling through the airport in the past 12 months,” he said.

“We undertook considerable planning and worked with our airline partners, the airport community and stakeholders to ensure the extension is future proof and consistent with the existing terminal and long term expansion proposals.” Deputy Mayor Paul Eagle said Wellington Airport was a great partner to the city in supporting events and promoting the capital. He said the domestic exten-

that councils who own their social housing were ineligible to receive the income related rent subsidy for their tenants. “We want people in Wellington who are eligible for the subsidy to get it, and if this is the way they can get it, it is good for everybody,” Paul said. “We don’t want to sell off our houses, we do not want to give them to other housing providers - what we do want to do is work in partnership with them.” Greg Coyle, interim manager of Salvation Army Social Housing, said it was a great opportunity to help people who were homeless or in a very difficult situation. He said it would give them somewhere to live and extra support to get things back on track for the long-term. “This partnership lets us do what we do best: direct our resources to helping people work through their challenges, knowing they have a stable home with an excellent housing provider in Wellington City Council, and with cheaper rent than they would otherwise pay.” Bay R

The Salvation Army has signed a deal with the Wellington City Council which will help provide secure housing in the capital for people in need. The agreement, which was reached last week, will give The Salvation Army the opportunity to rent up to 20 council properties at any one time. The Salvation Army would work as landlords of these properties, managing tenancies and providing tenants with wrap-around services including counselling, budgeting advice, parenting and other life skills training. Tenants placed into these houses will also be eligible to have their rent subsidised by the government through the Income-Related Rent Subsidy. While The Salvation Army will look after the tenants, and help them with tailored social support, the Wellington City Council will look after the buildings.

Earlier this month, Mt Cook residents gathered at Papawai Reserve for the seventh annual ‘Spring Fling’. The event, which took place on November 6, was opened by lambton ward councillor Iona Pannett and around 120 adults and children enjoyed the day, taking in the games, activites and food on offer. Karen Smyth from Mt Cook Mobilise, the community group in charge of organising the event, said the idea of the Spring Fling was to encourage and inspire neighbourliness. “It is all about building communities and having fun, that is the best part of each year’s event,” she said.

“There are always one or more new families who show up – or new people or individuals. It is just fantastic.” Karen said residents were encouraged to wear a coloured ribbon to show which street they lived in, in another attempt to inspire neighbours to get to know each other. Karen said among events this year were gardening workshops for adults and the planting of bee friendly plants. She said kids enjoyed egg and spoon races, as well as sack races and face painting. As part of this year’s event Mt Cook School also ran a sausage sizzle to support the school’s swimming fund, Karen said, and this was served up alongside coffee and cake.

Japan Festival to hit capital The fifth annual Japan Festival of Wellington will be heading to the capital in November. Held every two years in Wellington, previous festivals have exceeded 30,000 attendees. This year’s line-up of free entertainment and activities is expected to draw thousands more. This year’s festival will culminate in a Festival Day on Saturday, November 26. The sounds, sights and edible delights of Japan will provide an amazing splash of colour and culture to the capital, said Mayor of Welington Justin Lester. “The Festival is a great way of celebrating our warm and prosperous relations with our sister city of Sakai, and to promote the wonderful diversity of culture in our capital. “This year’s festival has an incredible line-up. From cutting-edge performance and comedy, flash electric vehicles, scintillating martial arts and the beauty of traditional Japanese culture in calligraphy, origami and tea ceremonies, there’s so much to see, hear, taste and create,” he said. The festival will run from Friday, November 18 to Sunday, December 4. For more information head to


Exciting changes for local tea shop

Maria Toner and Helen Grove have taken over management of The Little Teapot in Kilbirnie. By Nikki Papatsoumas

The Little Teapot in Kilbrinie is continuing to serve up some of the eastern suburb’s sweetest treats. The Little Teapot came under new management in September – and new owners Maria Toner and Helen Grove are continuing to serve up high tea to the masses, at the same time as functioning as an all-day cafe. Both said while previous owners had done a wonderful job, they were excited to offer customers a variety of changes. The women have re-decorated the Kilbirnie tea shop, having gone for a more muted palate complete with childrens room, adjoining outdoor courtyard and facilities for mums who visit with their children. They are hoping over the summer

months customers will enjoy the sunshine in their private outdoor space and enjoy a variety of refreshing drinks. Maria said she had an extensive background in hospitality, having travelled around the world working at various restaurants, eateries and hotels. “I knew the previous owner and I always looked at the place and thought it would be fantastic for a good cafe,” Maria said. “I knew Helen and she had the exact same thought. So when I was offered it I asked Helen if she wanted to come on board.” Helen, who worked as a commercial baker for several years, said she jumped at the opportunity. She brings her expertise to the eastern suburbs and her scrumptious homemade profiteroles and

delectable macarons are a must try. “We have had a really great response to our high tea so far,” Helen said. “With already a high number of returning customers – bookings of high tea is a must.” As well as continuing to serve up high tea, the pair also offers a variety of fresh cafe style food, takeaway coffee, milkshakes and freakshakes. Maria said the pair also wanted to make The Little Teapot a destination for all ages. The teapot’s revamped children’s area provides books, toys, dollhouses and more to keep children entertained. “We want people of all ages to pop in and enjoy the space.”  The Little Teapot, 29 Coutts St Kilbirnie, is open Monday to Saturday.

Adding space adds value Home renovation presents the unique opportunity for home owners to maximise the use of the property. One way is by providing storage areas for large assets such as cars, boats, motorcycles and other big vehicles that cannot be left in the open, particularly for security reasons. Additional storage space can also be utilised for odds and ends, excess furniture

and bulky items which cannot be stored inside the house. Here are some useful tips when considering the addition of a garage as well as advice on how to maximise the space. - A detached garage makes sense if infrequently used equipment, devices and bulky assets have to be stored. - A garage can also be added to serve as an office and used to work from home.

- Garages are the perfect workshops for people fond of carpentry, painting or other creative activities and needing peace and quiet to work. - A glass door is a cheaper option and adds visibility from the outside, besides making the garage bright and naturally laminated during daytime. - Like all other renovation exercises, once the thought of a garage addition becomes clear, budgeting needs to be worked out, before the thought can be transformed into a real structure. - A garage, be it attached or detached, can be constructed to match the exterior of the house; i.e The same brick type and colour. - A secure locking system must be installed since the garage is another access point for the home. - While constructing, make sure that shelves are added on the walls, and there is space left on all sides even after a big car gets parked. As families grow, so do the material assets and there is always a shortage of storage space. - Insulating the walls of the garage will make it warm and cozy. Adding a garage not only provides additional working and storage space, it also enhances the value of the property and makes the home complete. So even if it costs some money, it is an investment that will yield returns.

Q: How do you feel after Monday morning’s earthquake?

Barry Griffiths, Newtown “I’m from Greytown and I was sound asleep and to be shaken awake you wonder what’s happening. I have been feeling a bit philosophical. The shakes are not a big deal anymore, you get a bit blasé.”

Dave Wickham, Newtown

Sam Jennings, Newtown

Fe Day, Newtown

Erika Grant, Berhampore

“I woke up but I thought it was going to end so I just stayed in bed. I have lived through a few. It was quite strong though.”

“It didn’t really affect me too much, mostly I was just tired and wanted to go to sleep. I was lucky.”

“I was reading and I had to crouch down and I just thought ‘this is it’. For the next 24 hours I felt a lot of adrenaline after every after shock.”

“It was terrifying… I have been feeling a lot of emotions… a bit sad, there was family badly affected in Kaikoura.”

Anna Jarman, Newtown “I have been feeling a bit anxious, I am from Christchurch so it dredges things up, but it has gone back to normal quickly.”

‘Cans for Good’ collection for The Salvation Army begins Wellington schools will be collecting ‘Cans For Good’ for The Salvation Army this week. Wattie’s Cans for Good is a new national can collection campaign, aimed at collecting over 25,000 cans to help The Salvation Army stock up much needed food parcels

in the lead up to Christmas. For every can collected by a school, Wattie’s will donate a can to The Salvation Army. People can also donate cans via their local Countdown Supermarket. For more information visit

Wellington Harbour set for a clean-up This weekend a team of divers from Wellington Underwater Club and Ghostfishing New Zealand, along with their supporters, will spend the day beneath the waves. The groups will be cleaning up rubbish that has been thrown, blown, dropped or driven into the harbour as part of their annual ‘Wellington Harbour Spring CleanUp’. The Wellington Underwater Club and Ghostfishing New Zealand run the annual event to highlight marine pollution, and help people understand that domestic rubbish can end up in the sea, where it can be harmful to the environment and the creatures that call it home. Wellington Underwater Club president Nicole Miller said last year’s divers recovered three tonnes of rubbish, and they were expecting to pull up a similar amount this year. “We’re interested in what we might find this year – previous years have seen us haul up cans, bottles, road cones, cigarette butts,

tyres, shopping trolleys and even a scooter. “Once we bring the rubbish to the surface, every piece is checked for sea creatures – it is a process we call de-crittering,” she said. “We have experts from Island Bay Marine Education Centre on hand to make sure that the creatures, such as octopus, starfish, crabs and the like are removed safely and returned to the sea.” At the end of October, the Wellington Underwater Club joined with Plastic Free Peninsula to hold a warm-up event at Miramar Wharf, before the main Harbour Spring Clean Up. The Miramar event saw around 70 children and adults gather and de-critter the equivalent of about 27 council bags of rubbish.  The 2016 Wellington Harbour Spring Clean Up takes place on Saturday, November 19, at Taranaki Wharf, by The Boatshed, from 10am onwards. For more information, head to the Wellington Underwater Club Facebook page.

Phil Johnson and Amanda Johnson have organised an Art Exhibition at the Shelly Bay Lodge next weekend.

More than 20 artists set to display work By Nikki Papatsoumas

More than 200 pieces of art will be showcased at an art exhibition along Shelly Bay next weekend. Local artist Amanda Johnson is organising an Art Exhibition at the Shelly Bay Lodge for next weekend. Amanda, who has exhibited at a number of Wellington venues, has a studio space in the lodge, where she works on drawing and painting figurative works and portraits. “I just had this idea to have an exhibition here, it’s a large venue and a popular location. “I realised I know a lot of art groups and a lot of artists and I thought wouldn’t it be really fun to have a big exhibition.” Amanda said visitors could expect

to see a variety or art on display next weekend, most of which would be available for purchase. “The space will fit 200 pieces of art and there are more than 20 artists involved,” Amanda said. “While some of them are just starting off most of them are quite established.” Amanda said depending on the popularity of next week’s event, they would look at holding a similar event annually. “It’s a lovely destination here… and with all the other things on offer around Shelly Bay it will be a lovely day out for the family.”  The Shelly Bay Art Exhibition will take place next Saturday, November 26 at the Shelly Bay Lodge from 10am to 5pm. Entry is $2, children are free. There will be Eftpos available.

Community fights to stop neighbourhood development By Nikki Papatsoumas

Neighbours of a proposed apartment complex in Newtown say they will fight to ensure it is not built. Earlier this year it was announced the Mary Potter Hospice had plans to build a

five-storey 39 unit apartment complex adjacent to its hospice building in Mein Street, Newtown. This raised red flags for neighbours who said the development would have severe effects including domination of the surrounding homes, loss of

An artists impression of the proposed development.

sunlight, privacy, parking and traffic issues, noise, and loss of neighbourhood character. Following the hospice’s announcement, a public meeting was held – which led the hospice to amend design plans. Last Friday the hospice applied for resource consent with the Wellington City Council. As the project has been flagged as a Special Housing Area, consultation with the public may not be necessary before consent is granted. Owen St resident Nick Granville said although small changes had been made to the design, he was still disappointed the hospice had not taken into account concern from neighbours. He said residents felt as though despite raising concerns, the hospice had not listened to the community. “We are 100 per cent intending to fight this as a collective… the whole neighbourhood is against this.” Nick said they were not against Mary Potter building on the site, but would like to see something built sympathetically, and be-

lieved the hospice had not been a “good neighbour”. Nick said he hoped to hear by the end of the week whether the council would take neighbourhood concerns into consideration. A spokeswoman for the hospice confirmed it had applied for resource consent last Friday. “The design is substantially different to that first proposed by the hospice for consultation with affected neighbours, and the same as the modified design made public in September,” she said. The spokeswoman said the hospice was looking at an anticipated increase in demand for its services over the next 20 years. “The complex will be run as a social enterprise, meaning the income from the venture will be put back into the hospice to fund services for decades to come,” she said. She said income from the apartments would supplement the $5 million already raised through charity shops, bequest, grants and other fundraising.



Wellington Zoo’s longest serving zoo keeper retires after five decades Wellington Zoo’s longest serving zoo keeper, has retired after 51 years - but it is not the end. Murray Roberts began his job at the zoo in 1965 and over the past five decades has seen the landscape of the zoo dramatically change. During his time as a zoo keeper, Murray worked across all sections of the zoo, from primates to carnivores and everywhere in between. In 1970, he began working with the elephants and cared for the much-loved Kamala. With a great photographic eye, he has also built up an impressive portfolio of images to showcase the animals that have inspired his passion for

wildlife. Wellington Zoo’s chief executive Karen Fifield said Murray had a natural way with animals, and had provided excellent care for so many of them during his time as a zoo keeper. “He has loved his job here, and always brings a positive joy with him into the zoo. “Murray has also been a valued mentor and source of advice to our younger zoo staff, there is not much he hasn’t seen in his time as a zoo keeper,” she said. “He also has a wealth of stories about the zoo’s history that he has always been happy to share with his colleagues.” Despite having retired as being a full-time staff member,

New partnership announced

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

The second coming of Lazarus

The new surf lifesaving season has brought about a new major partnership. Surf Life Saving New Zealand,

Those who watched The New Zealand Cup last week saw harness racing history. Lazarus, the $2 favourite won the race by a staggering 10 lengths in a record time of 4 minutes and 53 seconds for the 3200m. The margin and time scarcely believable as the four-year-old made New Zealand’s best pacers look like donkeys. Not many four year-olds enter the $750,000 race; even less win it and none have ever done it in such emphatic fashion. I was at Addington Raceway, as I have been for most Cup meetings since I was a child (that’s about 12 in total). I have not seen such dominance. Prior to the race, I couldn’t bring myself to back it at $2 for the win. 600m from home however and the stallion looked like the greatest thing you’ve ever seen to double your money on. The Canterbury and New Zealand racing public probably have a superstar on their hands. The type of horse that transcends the industry and engages people who are the most casual of horse racing viewers. If Lazarus continues racing in New Zealand until his retirement, he could arguably become more beloved than Terror to Love, who won three consecutive New Zealand Cups. All of that is form and fitness dependent but in terms of laying claim to such accolades, Lazarus certainly made his intentions clear and he now has the harness racing world at his hooves.

together with TSB Bank, is proud to announce a three year agreement which will see the bank supporting the national body and

Surf Life Saving New Zealand chief executive Paul Dalton and TSB Bank chief executive Kevin Murphy.

its 74 clubs nationwide. The partnership is a natural fit for the two organisations whose values are closely aligned by putting people first – protecting individuals’ and families’ futures. Coming from small, humble beginnings and having long histories in New Zealand, both TSB Bank and Surf Life Saving New Zealand provide trusted, nationwide services with a strong focus on communities and the people they represent. TSB Bank is keen to build this partnership into all areas of its business. TSB Bank chief executive Kevin Murphy said he was excited to partner with Surf Life Saving

New Zealand. “We were seeking a partnership with a likeminded organisation that would resonate strongly with our employees, customers and communities,” he said. “Surf Life Saving New Zealand delivers on this expectation and we look forward to building our relationship with communities around the country.” TSB Bank branding will be present on Surf Life Saving properties such as the “swim between the flag” bases, lifegua rd unifor ms, beach condition signs and the bank will be the naming rights sponsor of the National Surf Lifesaving Championships.
