Locals are taking the lead when it comes to recognising violence in the community, following White Ribbon Day last week. White Ribbon Day is held annually on November 25 to raise awareness around domestic violence in New Zealand and aims to end men’s violence towards women. The movement began in 2004. Continued on page 2. Jimmy Samu, Jasmine Acker and Alice Soper hope locals can take the lead in addressing family violence.

White ribbon campaign to start in Wainuiomata Continued from page 1. Kokiri Marae Health and Social Services, with the support of Hutt City Council and other community groups will be empowering the Wainuiomata community to take the lead in addressing family violence in the coming months. Local woman Alice Soper said the idea for the campaign originated during campaigns around local alcohol policy earlier this year. “When we were taking submissions for the protest against the introduction of another liquor store in Wainuiomata, a common concern was for the safety of our community and the role alcohol played in that,” she said. “Unfortunately, the Hutt Valley has quite a high rate of domestic violence but we think Wainuiomata could take a lead in that space. The power of our community here is amazing so I’m excited to see what other positive change we can make.” Alice said the campaign would be Kokiri Marae led and would get the community “working for our community”. “It’s acknowledging we do have a problem in the Hutt but that Wainuiomata can lead the way to a solution.” she said.

Lower Hutt cinema to be demolished following quake Wainuiomata’s closest cinema complex will soon be demolished following the recent 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Hutt City Council issued a warrant on Friday requiring Event Cinemas and the car park building in the northeastern corner of Queensgate Shopping Centre be demolished. The decision came after council issued a warrant late

Thursday evening under section 129 of the Building Act 2004. The warrant required action to be taken to remove the danger posed by the building after it was damaged in the November 14. Queensgate will supply council with a detailed plan on how it will demolish the building this week, which will be approved by council engineers. The plan must set

out a time frame for when the demolition work will start and finish. Hutt City Council chief executive Tony Stallinger said council had obtained independent engineering advice which indicated there was a risk of collapse in another earthquake. “I have received advice that the option of securing and strengthening the building is

not appropriate for a range of reasons, including the time and uncertainty of outcome involved in that process.” Meanwhile in Wainuiomata, most stores including Countdown have now reopened following earthquake repairs. A spokesperson for Countdown said the store was structurally safe, and mall management have given them the “go ahead” to re-open.

The Warehouse won’t re-open following earthquake


inbrief news

Parade route changed The annual Wainuiomata Christmas Parade will be taking place this Saturday, December 3 at 10am. The route has been altered slightly in order to be the safest route for those involved and cause as little traffic disruption as possible. The parade will start from beginning of Totara Street, turn left on to Parkway Road, left down Wainuiomata Road, past Queen Street to the roundabout, left down Fitzherbert Road, left again down the Strand and finish at the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre car park. The floats will park up at the far end of the car park near the old New World’s site for judging. The prizegiving will be inside the mall at the Santa Grotto.

The Wainuiomata Warehouse has remained closed since the North Canterbury earthquake on November 14. By Emma McAuliffe

The Warehouse Wainuiomata will not be reopening its doors following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake which struck in the early hours of November 14. News of The Warehouse’s closure broke on social media on Tuesday morning following a week of uncertainty regarding its fate. It was announced earlier this year the store was set to close in early 2017 when its lease at the Wainuiomata Shopping Centre ended. The Warehouse national CEO Simon Turner said based on the store’s current state and the limited timeframe before the store’s lease-end it was decided the store would not re-open. “We acknowledge that the decision will be disappointing for local customers wanting to get their Christmas shopping

done but the wellbeing of our team is paramount and we believe it is unfair for them to return to a store which has been impacted by an earthquake, only to leave again in a few weeks’ time,” he said. Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace said he was “surprised and disappointed” at the decision to close, especially as The Warehouse in Queensgate Lower Hutt would remain closed in the lead up to Christmas. “I would have thought they would have wanted to remain open given their building in Queensgate will remain out of action. I’m very surprised at that decision,” he said. Hutt City Councillor Campbell Barry said the closure was disappointing however, was inevitable. “I’m really disappointed at their decision to close. My thoughts go to the staff but it’s good The Warehouse are

working with them to find redeployment. “Whether The Warehouse closes now or in February this is the nail in the coffin for the mall if they don’t redevelop or sell to someone,” he said. Because the closure had come earlier than expected The Warehouse would be offering Wainuiomata locals subsidised bus fares so they could shop in the nearby Petone or other local The Warehouse stores. Opening hours have been extended at Petone since Friday and will also be extended at Upper Hutt and Porirua from Wednesday. “We found that an increasing number of people in the areas were choosing to shop in the recently refurbished Petone store which is approximately 15 minutes away from Wainuiomata and has a much larger range of products,” Simon said.

“The Warehouse enjoys a close relationship with the Wainuiomata community and will continue to support local charity partners. We are contacting the various groups to let them know we will continue to work with them.” Since the earthquake The Warehouse Wainuiomata team members had been working at the Petone and surrounding Wellington stores. A bus from Wainuiomata to Petone will begin from December 1 2016 until and including Boxing Day, and Wainuiomata addresses will be able to access free standard delivery for a period of around six months. The Warehouse will share more detail about this in the coming weeks.  What do you think about The Warehouse shutting its doors earlier than expected? Let us know at news@wsn.

Bishop confirmed as National’s Hutt South candidate By Emma McAuliffe

The National Party has selected their candidate to run for the Hutt South seat in next year’s general election. Local MP Chris Bishop has been confirmed as the candidate. He previously ran in the 2014 elections, losing out to current Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard by 709 votes. The Petone local said since he had been elected to the List he had been “working hard for Hutt South”. “I’ve opened two offices, including the first ever National office in Wainuiomata, and I run regular ‘Catch up with Chris’ sessions right around the electorate.

“I’ve been proud to lead on important issues for Hutt residents, such as developing the Hutt into ‘Technology Valley’ – the home of hightech jobs in science, engineering, and manufacturing,” he said. Mr Bishop said a big focus for him in the last three years had been seeing young people succeed and continuing work on transport around the Hutt. “I’m passionate about seeing our young people succeed. In 2015 I helped establish the Hutt City Youth Awards to shine a light on our talented young people, and I’ve enjoyed being involved in Young Enterprise,

MaiBiz, and other activities. “The Wainuiomata Hill shared path has been significantly accelerated thanks to the government’s Urban Cycleway Fund. I will continue to advocate strongly for the important Cross Valley Link and Petone to Grenada roading projects,” he said. Mr Bishop said his focus around Wainuiomata during his campaign would be to help others see the potential in the suburb. “I think Wainuiomata as a place has a lot of potential. I want to build the profile of Wainuiomata as a place to live, build businesses and visit as a tourist destination,” he said.

MP Chris Bishop has been selected to run for Hutt South next year.

Lower Hutt businesses could get financial support following earthquake Local businesses affected by the North Canterbury earthquake might be able to receive an employee support subsidy. The announcement came from Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce and Social Development Minister Anne Tolley on Monday. It would be available to businesses that could not operate due to cordons put in place, and were unable to move and operate anywhere else. “The situation in Wellington is different from that in Kaikoura

because a state of emergency hasn’t been declared, and the city overall is functioning well. “However a small number of retail and hospitality businesses have been prevented from trading with the public for an extended period because of the need to demolish buildings,” Mr Joyce said. Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace welcomed the employee support subsidy. “I congratulate the government on this decision, it is very welcome and it is very necessary.

“We’ve had some big challenges from this earthquake, followed by flooding the next day. Our community took good care of one another and we came through. Now we need to continue this kindness and support as we focus on recovery,” he said. The support subsidy will cover up to eight weeks at a rate of $500 gross per week for a full time employee ($4,000 per person) and $300 gross per week for a part time employee ($2,400 per person).

A local dance studio will be celebrating a milestone anniversary with a special performance next weekend. Elevate Dance will be celebrating its tenth year teaching dance in Wainuiomata and Lower Hutt at their end of year show to be held on December 10 and 11 at the Expressions Arts and Entertainment Centre in Upper Hutt. Director Haidee Clark said the classes started in Wainuiomata and Lower Hutt in May 2006 and had grown in popularity since then. “We’ve just been growing. We’ve

got some more teachers over the past three years. When we first started it was just me. “We started just mainly doing hip-hop but has grown since then to be contemporary and jazz. It’s always been going in Wainui, this year we are just doing hip hop there though,” she said. Haidee said she was not surprised the classes had made it to the ten year mark. “It was always my intention to keep doing this as long as possible. It’s always been my passion. Some of my students are still the same from 10 years ago,” she said. Haidee said the end of year show

“I think there are some good ones but there could be more. It depends on what you’re into.”

“I reckon we’ve been doing better recently, with things like Rural Fest and the outdoor movie night but I think we could do better.”

“I think the 7 Day Makeover was good and I would like to do some extra work on it.”

Deegan Giles, Wainuiomata “I liked the 7 Day Makeover and the basketball hoops with it but I think we should do more with the hoops and the fairy garden.”

Also how great on telly to see so many people and children highlighted with their sharing and caring. (abridged) Mrs E.R. Marchant, Wainuiomata

Dear Ed, On behalf of the Rural Fest team, a big thank you to the 90-plus local businesses, community groups, entertainers and stallholders who so generously sponsored Rural Fest by donating items and services, and participating on the day.

Hui addresses housing issues in community By Emma McAuliffe

A hidden housing crisis has been taking place in Wainuiomata and locals have come together to take action. A Housing Hui was held last Monday evening as an opportunity for locals to come together to share their stories on rental issues and homelessness in Wainuiomata. The event was hosted by IkaroaRawhiti MP Meka Whaitiri who told the audience housing was a “huge issue” right across her electorate, and the entire country. “There are not enough houses for families in the Hutt Valley. There are 184 State Houses empty and 180 people on the wait list. There is a break down between empty houses and families waiting,” she said. Ms Whaitiri said issues families in Wainuiomata faced included high

rental prices and “damp, mouldy” rentals. “This is a problem for the health of our children and their attendance at school,” she said. Locals took the opportunity to address their own experiences which included not realising homelessness was an issue in Wainuiomata, as well as finding it difficult to find housing. At the end of the meeting the group came together to discuss how they could improve their situations. This included a Housing Accord which could state what residents and the community wanted regarding housing standards.  What do you think? Do you think there should be a housing standard code?

Locals to take part in Hour of Code Locals will be able to join people from around the world in a special coding event taking place at the Wainuiomata Library next week. Hutt City Libraries would be joining organisations from more than 180 countries from around the world in the ‘Hour of Code’ in December. The ‘Hour of Code’ is a global computer science movement

reaching tens of millions of people of all ages. It is a free, one-hour introduction to computer science designed to explain coding and demonstrate that anybody could learn the basics. Programme development specialist at Hutt City Libraries Lillian Pak said coding was “increasingly a valuable skill”. “Knowing the basics of coding

can give everyone an edge in their career. Learning to code also teaches essential transferable skills such as problem solving and encourages creativity,” she said. This would be the third year Hutt City Libraries has taken part and they planned to reach even more people across Lower Hutt with sessions at all eight libraries in the first week of

December. Over 220 people took part at libraries across Lower Hutt last year. Participants could choose from a variety of tutorials which would work on any modern browser, tablet, or smartphone and there would be coding activities not requiring a computer. Library staff, mentors from the 2020 Trust, and volunteers would be on hand to help resi-

Little theatre to bring Sweeney Todd to stage By Emma McAuliffe

Directors Barry Paterson and Barbara Wray are looking forward to bringing Sweeney Todd to the stage. PHOTO: Supplied.

A local theatre group is getting ready for a killer production next year following the successes of their last shows. The Wainuiomata Little Theatre is currently looking for interest from the community to be in their next show, “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”. Sweeney Todd is a musical set in 19th century London and follows the story of a barber who seeks revenge on a judge who wronged him, enlisting local baker Mrs Lovett in the

Final breakfast for the year held By Emma McAuliffe

Local businesses came together for the last time for the year at the monthly Development Wainuiomata business breakfast held last Friday. The month’s speaker was Moses Ariama, who spoke to the group on his work with young people and the importance of working with youth. Moses Ariama has spent the past decade working with youth in New Zealand and established the Pride Awards Trust and Pride Lands Limited. The Pride Awards are annual awards which recognise the success of young people in the Wellington region.

Moses told the audience it was important to listen to youth and help them find their way in life. “I believe children need much more than to just be dragged along with the world. The only way to make change is to get involved somewhere,” he said. Development Wa inuiomata was started in 2002 to promote and develop business in Wainuiomata. Their next breakfast will take place in February with the speaker still to be announced.  For more information on Development Wainuiomata head to www. developmentwainuiomata.weebly. com/

process. This would be the first time the little theatre had performed the show. Co-director Barry Paterson said the theatre had been interested in performing the show for a long time. “It’s a show I’ve always been interested in. We’ve been going from strength to strength as a theatre and we think this would be the most technically challenging show we’ve ever done,” he said. Barry said the theatre would be holding an information evening next week for the

community to find out what the show would be about and register interest. Auditions would be in the middle of December, he said.  The information evening for “Sweeney Todd: Demon Barber on Fleet Street” will be taking place on Monday, December 5 at 7pm. Auditions will be on Saturday, December 17 and Sunday, December 18 for show dates Wednesday, May 24 to Saturday, June 3. For more information contact Barry on 027 5838884 or email

Youth benefitting from bus to work Local youths are now travelling further to work thanks to a partnership between Youth Inspire, Work and Income and Taylor Preston. Taylor Preston, a meat processors based on the Ngauranga Gorge, began this service earlier this year after employing several young people from Wainuiomata, including over 20 clients of Youth Inspire. The bus service transporting night shift workers to the factory came as part of collaboration between Youth Inspire, Work and Income and Taylor Preston. Manager at Youth Inspire, Alison Black, said Taylor Preston had always been committed to employing locals from Wainuiomata and this was one of the ways they showed their commitment.

“They offer excellent training and remuneration for those that are prepared to work hard,” she said. Alison said Taylor Preston’s location had made it challenging for young people to get there, so the bus was a “fantastic outcome”. “Taylor Preston is based up the Ngauranga Gorge making transportation challenging if you are working night shifts, especially for our youth who don’t hold a driver’s license or have a car. “This really shows how committed Taylor Preston are to supporting young people in Wainuiomata into employment,” she said.  For more information on Youth Inspire head to www.youthinspire. or their Facebook page.

Local man creating art to help Kaikoura By Emma McAuliffe

A local man has his sights set on helping others following the recent North Canterbury earthquake. Aidan Walbaekken has painted over 30 paua in the hopes of raising money for Kaikoura, one of the towns worst hit by the November 14 7.8 magnitude quake. He said he started to paint the shells following the quake as a way to help. “For me I think creativity can be a problem solver,” Aidan said. He said he was still yet to figure out where specifically in Kaikoura he wanted to donate the money to. “We want it to go to somewhere really local, not just to a big charity. The Red Cross is doing an amazing job but we want to make sure all the money is going to Kaikoura,” Aidan said. Aidan said it took him a week to create the first batch, which included jig sawing the different sizes and painting them all. “Once I had the idea I really wanted to get it done,” he said. The paua shells had already been gaining interest with over half selling in the week since he began, however, Aidan said he was willing to start another batch to continue to raise money.  To check out Aidan’s art head to adonalonart

A local man is one to watch in the Suzuki Series kicking off this weekend. The annual Suzuki Series kicks off in Taupo on Sunday and Wainuiomata’s Shane Richardson will be taking part in the F2 600 section. The 21-year-old ended his 2015 campaign just half a point behind Damon Rees on his Wainui Joinery Kawasaki ZX-6R, although overall winner Daniel Mettam was his closest rival throughout the series. Shane was described as a young rider going places and raced in the final round of the WIL Sport European Junior Cup at Jerez in October where he qualified 12th and posted a very respectable race two 11th place in his first overseas ride.

The Suzuki Series is spread over three quick-fire rounds during December at Taupo, Manfeild and Wanganui, and is the richest international motorcycle series in New Zealand with $36,550 series prize money. The Taupo race will take place at Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park on Sunday, December 4. Feilding’s race will take place at Manfeild Park on Sunday, December 11 and the Whanganui race will take place at the Cemetery Circuit on Monday, December 26.  For more information on the Suzuki Series head to Early-bird tickets for all rounds are available at

This is the sporting year of the upset

Locals have something to celebrate after the Wainuiomata men’s sevens team won the Piri Weepu Sevens for the first time. The sevens tournament annually hosted by Wainuiomata took place at the weekend. Almost thirty games took place back to back at William Jones’ park during Saturday’s daylong event. Twelve men’s teams and four women’s teams competed in the tournament which was the last rugby event for Wellington Rugby in 2016.

The Wainuiomata Men’s team performed successfully all day with highlights being their 48-0 win over Paremata-Plimmerton early in the day and later a 40-0 win against the Billy Weepu 7’s squad. The Wainuiomata Men’s took out the finals against Petone 26-12.

Take Ireland’s first win over the All Blacks in their 111-year rivalry. How about Italy, of all countries, beating the Springboks last weekend? Droughts have also been broken. The Chicago Cubs won baseball’s World Series for the first time in 108 years. How about Leicester City’s staggering triumph in the English Premier League? The team with a tiny budget which refused to accept the script. Iceland knocked England out of Euro 2016. If you’re thinking anyone beating England in a major football

tournament is not an upset, then I accept your point - choking is an affliction after all. The Cronulla Sharks won their first NRL rugby league crown after being touted as a club incapable of winning the big one. A tag which now must come close to hanging around the necks of the New Zealand Warriors. The great thing about sport is that you get all the drama without the scripts. Sure, there were still dead certainties in sport. Usain Bolt comes racing to mind, UFC fighter Conor McGregor is another but this year, those that upset the apple cart will be remembered most of all.
