Six steps to be prepared By Emma McAuliffe

ABC Audit 2012: 6,456 copies weekly Wainuiomata News The largest circulating newspaper in Wainuiomata


Following the earthquake of last week the Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO) are urging people to be prepared in case of disaster. Community resilience manager Dan Neely said the office had six suggestions for how people could be prepared in a natural disaster. “Store enough water for at least 7 days – 20L per person. Items you need for survival are present

in your house already – just keep them stocked up. “Have a conversation with everyone in your household about what to do in an emergency. How will you meet up? How do you turn off your utilities? Make sure everyone knows to Drop, Cover and Hold and carefully exit a building. “Know who in your street and community might need extra help and assistance and offer to help. “Get a small grab and go bag

for your workplace and make sure this includes a good pair of walking shoes and a jacket. “Check that your foundations are secure and remove your old brick chimney so you can protect your biggest investment and remain in your house after an earthquake,” he said. WREMO recommended in the event of an earthquake people should drop, cover and hold where they were, not go into a door way. The organisation recom-

The office at 72 Wainuiomata Road will be closing on 2nd December and Janine will be shifting the focus of her business to elder law (primarily Estates, Wills and Powers of Attorney) while having a sabbatical in 2017. Janine will remain in Wainuiomata and can be contacted on her usual contacts below. She will be happy to refer you to another Solicitor if she is unable to assist you herself during her sabbatical.

Venning said the event was created as a chance for the community to engage with rural life in Wainuiomata. ”It’s been a really great way for people to engage with the awesome things we have here. “People came from all over to experience this. You don’t have to travel far to experience country life, she said. Esther said plans were already underway for next year’s Rural Fest and the group would be looking for new committee members to get involved. “It’s an idea we want to keep going and want to keep developing. We’re looking for new committee members for next year. “This year was our first year and was just to try it out but we will be looking for more people to take over and take part next year,” she said.  To get involved with the planning of next year’s Rural Fest get in touch by emailing or messaging the Rural Fest Facebook page.  Did you go to Rural Fest?

Mall reopens following quake By Emma McAuliffe

Wainuiomata residents have been without a supermarket for over a week following the earthquake last Monday. The earthquake saw the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre, including McDonald’s and Countdown close for an indefinite period of time. A spokesman for the shopping centre said the mall was closed because of aesthetic damage and repairs started on Friday to address these. “This work commenced on Friday and included repairs to flooring areas, mirrors and glass in skylights as well as ensuring ceiling tiles are secure and safe. “Engineers are continuing to carry out checks to some areas today and will be reengaged to do further assessments once repair work has been completed over the next few days,” he said. “The safety of all centre tenants, their staff and customers remains of paramount importance in all decisions regarding reoccupation, based on engineering advice.” McDonald’s Wainuiomata reopened on Friday as staff and customers did not have to use the mall for access.

“The city has come through well, our communities have rallied and we’ve got through together.” The earthquake triggered a tsunami warning in the early hours of Monday. Lower Hutt’s sirens were activated at 2:35am and many residents self-evacuated to higher ground. The sirens were turned off at 3:06am. Hutt City Council officers completed assessment of the 59 earthquake-prone buildings registered in the city early last

Hutt City Council building manager Derek Kerite said if tenants suspected they were in a building which may have suffered structural damage to first tell the owner and then inform Council of the address. “If a building does have structural damage the owner will need to get an engineer’s report, we can advise them on the steps they need to take.

Wainuiomata Marae opens doors to earthquake evacuees A local marae helped out those who needed it most following the earthquake last Monday. The Wainuiomata Marae opened its doors to evacuees from Lower Hutt and the Wainuiomata coast following the tsunami sirens which sounded in the early hours of Monday morning. Forty people sought shelter and were welcomed with food as they waited out the tsunami warning. Although the tsunami warnings passed the work for the marae has not and they have continued to care for families uprooted by flood and earthquake damage. Wainuiomata Ma rae’s Linda Olsen said she was t ha n k f ul to t he Maor i Wardens and local civil defence team for the tireless work and the local charity organisation Kaibosh, who turned up on Monday mor n ing wit h supplies. “We opened up to the community at around 2am

on Monday morning, and we’ve had about 90 people come in since then. We can’t thank Kaibosh enough – it’s because of their help that we’ve been able to feed everyone here a nd provide food pa rcels for whanau in need,” Linda said. Hutt South Labour candidate Ginny Andersen visited t he ma rae last Thursday to thank Linda and others at the marae for their hard work. “Linda and whanau at Wainuiomata Marae have gone above and beyond in caring for our community. Being amongst the fi rst to respond to the tsunami wa r ning last weekend, their work hasn’t stopped yet,” Ms Andersen said. “It’s places like this that are the defi nition of community spirit. Opening their doors up, no questions asked.” A community meeting is scheduled to review and plan for the next emergency.

Mayor expresses gratitude to community following week’s events The community has been pra ised for its resil ience following last week’s earthquake and severe weather conditions. L ower Hut t Mayor R ay Wallace said despite the 7.8 magnitude earthquake and f looding happening a day apart the Wainuiomata community spirit shone through

“like a beacon”. “Within half an hour of the earthquake that rocked the township bringing power outages to most parts of Wainuiomata the Wainuiomata Resilience Network office was open and was liaising with the Volunteer Fire Brigade, Bush fire, Police and Community Patrol.

Mr Wallace said he was also grateful to members of the community who checked in on their neighbours. “I know it was appreciated and showed the strength of local neighbourhoods,” he said. “Like always, our volunteer Fire Brigades, Bush Fire Force Resilience Network,

Community Patrol, Marae and council contractors were all there out in the thick of it to render assistance and keep people safe. “My sincere thanks to all those that helped us during the emergencies. It was very much appreciated. It shows in time of need people really do rise to the occasion.”

Last week’s earthquakes and extreme weather tested our city. Lower Hutt has come through these events well, our communities have rallied and we’ve all got through together. Our thanks go to all the contractors, Council staff, and the many volunteers working on behalf of our community. Events like these really demonstrate the better prepared you are, the more resilient your family and wider community will be. A prepared city is a strong city. Best wishes.

TSUNAMI EVACUATION ZONES Some of our city is in tsunami evacuation zones, particularly Petone and the Eastern Bays. If you are in one of these zones and experience a long earthquake (longer than a minute), or strong enough that you can’t stand up, that may be the only warning to evacuate. Do not wait for sirens or any other signal. Evacuate, preferably on foot rather than car if possible. For maps of the tsunami zones throughout Lower Hutt visit BE PREPARED

Water Store at least 20 litres of water for each person in your household.

Ray Wallace, Mayor – Lower Hutt

Change your water every six months, ideally when you put the clocks forward or back. Treat stored water before use by bringing it to the boil.

The sirens are tested annually for two minutes; residents are advised of these tests through local media and on

For more information on preparing your home visit

Have a plan Work out an alternative meeting location where you and your family would go if you can’t get home. If you have children, provide your school or early childhood provider with alternative people who are approved to collect them, ideally somebody in walking distance of their school.

When your neighbours know you, they are more likely to be concerned about you during an emergency. The simple act of introducing yourself to your neighbours can have many positive effects – communities that are safer, friendlier, better connected and more resilient.


If you hear the sirens When the sirens sound continuously (unlike the fire brigade siren) that’s a signal that there are instructions for people, and they should go to credible sources for more information, visit the Council website, check Facebook, turn on the radio, or go to

Getaway kit Have a getaway kit at home, work and in your car. Getaway kits should contain comfortable shoes, water and snacks, essential medications or copies of any prescriptions, a lightweight raincoat, any essential documentation, a torch, gloves, a radio and a small first aid kit.

Everybody needs good neighbours The most immediate help available in an emergency is provided by the people around you.

A big thanks to NZRT 18a Response Team for Lower Hutt who were out helping with reconnaissance and evacuation.

The sirens are a warning system activated if evacuation is needed. We have a network of sirens on the valley floor from Eastbourne to Avalon. We also have sirens in Wainuiomata.

Food Store enough food to last at least three days. Ensure you check any emergency food supplies and replace supplies regularly.

200 litre rainwater tanks are available for purchase at the Hutt City i-SITE

Know who may need extra help; be aware of households with young kids, elderly, people with disabilities and people who speak English as a second language.

Thanks for voting Dear Ed, I would like to thank all the people that voted for me in the election for community board. I got 1559 votes. I would like to say thank you to Campbell Barry and Ken Laban, I got sick during the election and they put out fliers and made a sign for me which promoted inclusion and

diversity. They made me a messenger of inclusion and diversity... We are changing from a close knit society to an inclusive and diverse community. I would like to thank Ken and Campbell for supporting my dream of inclusion and diversity as change takes time. Mayor Ray Wallace has supported me with empathy and the

struggle will go on which includes equality and the nice things said to me about the election. To me it says a lot about our community in how attitudes have changed towards different impairments and disability issues. Thank you Wainuiomata. (abridged) Mike Grigg, Wainuiomata

Pencarrow raises funds By Emma McAuliffe

Local children hopped on their bikes to fundraise for their kindergarten last week. Pencarrow Kindergarten held their first Wheel-a-thon at Arakura School last Friday evening to fundraise for natural play resources. These resources would include planks and boxes which could be used for by the children for open ended play.

As part of the event children had to collect sponsors and then ride around a specially made track at Arakura School 10 times. Following the ride each student was rewarded with a certificate and a rubber duck. Pencarrow Kindergarten head teacher Dawn Summers said she was grateful to the parents fundraising committee for running the “lovely” event.

“The event is good for the community,” she said. “It was the first time we’ve held the event at this school. We couldn’t hold it at our kindy because we don’t have enough concrete but luckily for us Arakura said yes. It’s good for our community to see Arakura School as well,” she said. A sausage sizzle and bake sale were also held at the event to raise extra money.

New website for students to show off work By Emma McAuliffe

High school students now have a place to show off their best art work. The Wainuiomata High School Art Faculty website went live last

week after being in development for the past year. On the website are photos of student’s work in visual art throughout the year as well as images of performances in music and drama.

Wainuiomata High School year 11 student Chayne Rapana views her work on the website.

Head of Arts faculty Fiona Waitere said the site would not be updated frequently until the new school year. She said the website was exciting for the students, who were able to show their parents what they had been doing in school. “The kids have got really into it, at first they didn’t want their photos taken with their art, but now they love it. “Parents get to see their children’s work which doesn’t always happen in high school. We’ve had our students telling us they were really excited that their parents had seen their work on the site,” she said. Teacher Alice Alva said the website would be for the community to have a look at what the students had been learning. “It’s something we could share between the arts faculty and the community,” she said.  To view the new Arts Faculty website head to

Adventure around Lower Hutt By Emma McAuliffe

A new adventure will be taking place in Lower Hutt next month to challenge people who think they know the city best. The Hutt Urban Adventure Race will be taking place for the first time on Sunday, December 11 and locals are being encouraged to give it a go. Hutt City Council recreation programmer Aileen Campbell said the race was created to celebrate the many recreational areas available in Lower Hutt. “This event promotes active transport. That’s our goal. It also promotes and gets people into the awesome places and spaces we have in Lower Hutt. We’ve got great recreational areas in Lower Hutt,” Aileen said. Aileen said the race would be divided into two categories, The Full-On Adventurer, which would take three hours, and the Explorer which would take just over an hour. The Full-On Adventurer would have people on bikes and other wheels to get to the challenges given

on a map. “For the three hour race you will be given a map of 30 checkpoints to get to in a two hour time limit. There’s no expectation to get around all of them and some are harder to get to than others but the idea is to get as many as you can,” she said. The Explorer race would see residents join in on the walking leg of the Full on Adventurer race. “It would be good to have people who know the area well and know of shortcuts. Being fit is okay but knowledge of the area is good,” Aileen said.  The Hutt Urban Adventure Race takes place between 9am and 1pm on Sunday, December 11. Registrations close on Sunday, December 4. Cost is $5 per team member for the Explorer race or $7.50 for the Full On Adventurer race. This price will go up by $10 in cases of late registration. Children under seven can race free. For more information or to register head to www. or any Hutt City Library.

Residents give challenge a go By Emma McAuliffe

Locals got stuck in last weekend at the Capital Multisport Butt Busta Challenge. The challenge was held last Sunday, November 13 at the Brookfield Scout Camp on Moores Valley Road. Capital Multisport is an events based company interested in running family friendly events catering a wide variety of athletic ability. The group holds three events in the Hutt Valley a year. The Butt Busta Challenge is held in Wainuiomata every November. Robert Welsh from Capital Multisport said the annual event was now in its 6th year saw competitors

take part in different length obstacle courses ranging from 4km to 12km. “It’s a course with obstacles, water and mud. And a hill. We do running events usually so we thought this would be a bit different to go alongside that. It’s inspired by similar events in the United Kingdom,” Robert said. Robert said he estimated 260 people took part in the event, including a blind runner who completed a 4km lap. “We think that sport is for everyone,” Robert said.  For more information on Capital Multisport head to

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

ABs ripe for the reply Jackie stretches out to score in a match against Marist St Pats earlier this year. PHOTO: Daryl New Photography

A local woman is the only Wellingtonian playing for a national squad on their end of year tour. Jackie Fereti (nee Patea) received a late call up for the Black Ferns rugby team for their end of year tour. The Black Ferns close fought win over long term rivals England, was not without casualties. The injuries sustained during this match gave Jackie an opportunity to represent the

Wainuiomata on the world stage. It was the icing on the cake for a big year for Jackie. A hard working member of the Wainuiomata Women’s championship squad and captain of the Wellington Pride, Jackie is a versatile forward playing as lock and number eight. The Black Ferns have two tests remaining on their tour of Ireland, playing Canada this Wednesday before playing hosts Ireland on Sunday.

The biggest game of rugby since the World Cup final happened at the weekend - who would have thought? Ireland hosted the All Blacks in a match which rejuvenated interest in world rugby thanks to Ireland’s shock win in Chicago a fortnight ago. No one would have predicted Ireland to be the opponent most feared by the men in black in 2016 but with no match against England on the end of year tour, the loss has helped build some interest. They have a full squad of players, a full lock pairing and the memory of that stinging defeat in their heads. The concerns have to be the lack of form of halfback Aaron Smith and number 10 Beauden Barrett.

Smith, long regarded as the best player in the team and Barrett, who was named IRB World Player of the Year this week, were well off their games. Barrett’s goal kicking has remained awful and a real weakness in close games while Smith’s airport toilet escapades have seen his gold form come to a screeching halt. However, this is the All Blacks, they learn and they improve. And they did. The All Blacks beat Ireland, 21-9 in Saturday’s game. It was a tough match both sides, with Sam Cane and Malakai Fekitoa both being cited for their dangerous tackles. Luckily for the ABs, Barrett was on form.
