Local wins top prize

Year in review

Johnsonville local Lulu Quayle was presented with a brand new iPhone7 for Christmas by Domino’s New Zealand as part of a Facebook competition in the lead-up to Christmas. In the “12 Days of Christmas Giveaways” Domino’s Facebook fans were asked to enter each day for prizes, giving responses to a question posed, and as each day progressed the value of the prizes increased, with the ultimate prize – a brand new iPhone7 being awarded on the final day. Lulu received her prize from the Domino’s Johnsonville store manager personally, and was thrilled to get a new phone saying “it was the best end to 2016/start of 2017 that she could have asked for”.

Honour for Khandallah local By Sharnahea Wilson

A local man who helped New Zealand secure the position of Rugby World Cup host in 2011 says he is honoured to be recognised for his hard work throughout his extensive career. Khandallah resident Brian Roche was appointed a Knight Companion of The New Zealand Order of Merit for services to the State and business in the 2017 New Year Honours list. “It comes as a complete surprise... I was surprised and honoured at the same time.” Brian has been chief executive of New Zealand Post since 2010 and has both overseen a significant transformation of the organisation and contributed to the expansion of Kiwibank. He was head of the Bid Project Team for the 2011 Rugby

World Cup and was subsequently chair of the company which ran the tournament. “I was working on the New Zealand Rugby Union at the time and the opportunity came up.” Brian said he was “one of the few people” who believed it would be possible for New Zealand to be the host of the 2011 world cup. He played a key role in bringing stakeholders together to achieve the successful bid to host the World Cup in New Zealand. “It was a huge honour for New Zealand,” Brian said. One of the things that had the biggest impact on Brian’s career was his secondment to the Prime Minister’s Department in the late 1980s and early 1990s as it “opened up a lot of opportunities”. Brian subsequently became Chair of the WWI Centenary

Panel and contributed to the successful running of centenary events throughout New Zealand.

He was chief Crown negotiator on Treaty of Waitangi settlements in the 1990s and is recognised as having been a major contributor to the successful outcome of the Ngai Tahu settlement, which laid the framework for subsequent Treaty negotiations. The local man was also the inaugural Chair of the Auckland Regional Transport and the first Chair of the New Zealand Transport Authority when it was established in 2008. Among his many achievements and positions, Brian has been an Independent Chair of Hurricanes Rugby since 2013 and currently Chairs Antarctica New Zealand, Tait Electronics, and the Wellington Gateway Project. With retirement nearing, Brian said he was now looking forward to spending more time with his wife and family.

You’re off to great places! Today is your Day! Your mountain is waiting, So... Get on your way! Dr Seuss

Wellington's favourite family day out is going interstellar this Wellington Anniversary weekend. Capital E's Great Scavenger Hunt is back for its seventh edition, with more destinations than ever. Intrepid explorers will visit the final frontier as they hunt for clues and complete missions. Wellington's waterfront will be taken over by young astronauts, armed with Capital E's special maps, to explore the different 'planets' – exciting organisations that celebrate the region's spirit such as Space Place at Carter Observatory, SPCA and Te Papa. The hunt, which has been a popular feature of Wellington Anniversary weekend since 2010, runs from 10am-4pm on Saturday 21 January. Entry to the Great Scavenger Hunt is by koha, and it takes off with a map, which can be collected from Capital E Central at 4 Queens Wharf or printed of f online beforehand from w w w.

Budding astronauts are encouraged to dress in their best intergalacticinspired costumes - there'll be spot prizes on the day for the best dressed and a costume parade at Queens Wharf at 12:45pm. Scavengers who complete all the challenges will go in

the draw to win the ultimate prize pack. There will also be a lunchtime extravaganza under the sails at Queens Wharf from 12pm-1:45pm, complete with entertainment, local food trucks and prizes for the best dressed.

Local dancers wowed two full crowds at their end of year show for 2016 at the Memorial Theatre in Kelburn. Students of all ages from the Fiona Haines Dance Academy in both Karori and Brooklyn performed a full production of the classic fairytale Cinderella. An influx of boys over the last few years has meant Fiona needed to create more roles for males in her popular end-of-year productions. Fiona offers boys-only ballet classes where dancers from different grades get together for a class run by a male dance teacher. “It’s so important for the boys to have the opportunity to have a male tutor,” Fiona said. “I also combine the boys every year in the fourth term for our production so they can play a part they’ll love, like the ‘Prince’s Guards’ in Cinderella.” Fiona also runs Fairy Ballet classes for

pre-schoolers where she incorporates different themes with stories using props and imagination. All students are involved in yearly examinations and a full production, Fiona explained. “My senior students are already asking me what show we will be doing in 2017 and trying to work out which part they may get a chance to play. “Dancing is all about getting out on stage and it’s the favourite part of the year for them.” She said the academy had achieved 100 per cent pass rates in all exams for over 20 years in both Ballet (Royal Academy of Dance) and NZAMD Jazz and Contemporary. Past productions include Pinocchio, Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Snow Goose as well as many Christmas themed stories.  Enrolments are now being taken for 2017.

“To lose some weight.”

“I don’t have any, I don’t see why you should – it’s just another day.”

Wellington donates generously at Christmas The Wellington City Mission has once again been blown away by locals’ response to the annual Christmas Star Appeal. Individuals, businesses, teams and families across Wellington have been getting involved in different ways including filling 420 Christmas Star Boxes with food and toys, taking part in the iconic ‘Pack the Bus’ and purchasing close to 200 stars on The Mission’s Walk of Fame.

Generous private and business donors also contributed financially, enabling The Mission to continue offering their programmes and services into the New Year. “We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has supported our Christmas Star Appeal this year,” Wellington City Mission chief executive officer Michelle Branney said. “It’s incredible to know that this support has touched the lives of

thousands of people this Christmas.” Because of the generous support of Greater Wellington, during December The Mission gave out close to 900 Christmas food parcels – food for approximately 3000 people. This is on top of the 300 regular food parcels which they also distributed during November and December. Approximately 1700 children

from throughout Wellington also received new gifts at Christmas. Recipients of the food and gifts are Mission clients, as well as those of 31 other community service agencies The Mission collaborates with, such as Kokiri Marae Maori Women’s Refuge, Porirua Whanau Centre, Red Cross Refugee Services and Challenge 2000. Some of the Christmas parcels were delivered with the help of players from the Hurricanes, the Phoe-

nix and the Firebirds, and included items such as chicken donated by Tegel Foods, sausages from The Mad Butcher, hams from Hellers, and other Christmas goods from local businesses and individual donors – plus gifts for children. In the lead-up to Christmas The Mission also held three sittings for a Hakari (feast) in their drop-in centre – the first for volunteers, then two sittings for guests – catering for 140 people in total.

Bringing in the New Year with Onslow-Western Ward Councillors  DIANE CALVERT

“Happy New Year and one, I hope, that holds new opportunities for you all. The mid to long ter m i mpacts of t he recent earthquake will require us to rethink what is most important and how we can be more resilient for the future. Connected and engaged communities, such as we have in Onslow-Western, are critical to our resilience. For me, as a new councillor, I’m looking forward to driving improvement in my specific portfolio community planning and engagement. The council usually ‘consults’ near the end of a process but I want to see real engagement with citizens much earlier on and before solutions are presented. There are good opportunities to do just that on key projects such as Karori development, cycleways, commuter parking, and new infrastructure.”  SIMON WOOLF

“Wishing all in Onslow Western a happy safe and fruitful 2017. Last year saw the Resource Consent being approved for the Terawhiti Artificial Turf, the first sod being turned on The Karori Event Centre and the formation of The Khandallah Residents Group which were three highlights of 2016. In 2017 I will be encouraging a positive resolution to the Victoria University Teachers Training College site,

where community facilities are retained. This includes the courts, the green spaces the childcare centres, and if possible the halls. Further aims and objectives for 2017 would to be to encourage a more resilient Onslow-Western, and especially in light of the floods and earthquakes we already have had. It would also be great if we could all make an effort in making our area predator free as soon as possible too. Retaining and encouraging our nature is important, as is enhancing quality of life opportunities in our suburbs.”  ANDY FOSTER

“ C h r i st m a s New Year is a time to reflect on what is important and where your focus will be in the coming year(s). In 2017 the big opportunities for our ward include resolving the future of the College of Education and developing a comprehensive long term Karori Plan. We’ll launch an ambitious programme to get rid of pest predators (rats, stoats, possums) to help native birds and lizards thrive. We’ll see Karori Events Centre and Terawhiti artificial turf built, and significant building programmes at schools across the ward. I’ve always liked this quote, inscribed at Mount Arthur Hut in Kahurangi National Park ‘I expect to come this way but once. Any goodness therefore that I do, Or any kindness that I can show to my fellow creatures, Let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, For I may not pass this way again’. There will only be one 2017 so let’s use it well.”


Longview Home diversional therapist Marlene Bowles, her granddaughter and Longview Home volunteer Emmelia Stevenson, volunteer Becca Ritchie and her grandmother, Longview Home enrolled nurse, Angela Ritchie.

Volunteer this New Year If you have free time on your hands this year, why not donate it to people who have already given a lifetime of skills and knowledge to our communities? That’s what students Emmelia Stevenson (15) and Becca Ritchie (14) do. Every school holidays the pair can be found volunteering at Enliven’s Longview Home in Tawa helping out where they can to enhance the lives of the elders that live there. While they were both introduced to Longview Home by their grandmothers who work there, they are encouraging other people in the community to consider becoming an Enliven volunteer. “I started volunteering when I was four and a half – I’d come in to see the residents and spent time with them. Now when I volunteer I help out with the activities and any other little jobs,” Emmelia explains. “I like the people. They’re really nice and they have really interesting stories to tell.” Volunteering with Enliven is helping Emmelia with her Duke of Edinburgh Award community hours, as well as giving her the opportunity to give back to her elders. “I finished my Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award last year and now I’m looking to do silver and gold, so volunteering here helps with my community hours, and I really

enjoy it,” says Emmelia. Becca says volunteering at the home is giving her invaluable work experience as well as being fun at the same time. “My grandma works here and has for a long time so I started coming along for visits when I was five,” says Becca. “When I volunteer I mostly help out in the office. It’s great to help me with my community hours for Girl Guides and it’s good work experience.” Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, is looking for volunteers of all ages to bring more variety to their homes, including Longview Home in Tawa, Cashmere Heights Home and Cashmere Home in Johnsonville, and Huntleigh Home in Karori. Volunteers can help by gardening with the residents, painting nails, visiting with animals or young children, playing music, helping with the men’s group or other activities like crafts, board games, or simply spending one-on-one time with the residents.  To express your interest in volunteering with Enliven, email or visit To find out more about Enliven’s homes and services in Wellington, freephone 0508 ENLIVEN.

Mariko Hummel-Jibiki started working as a Japanese interpreter for Interpreting New Zealand in 2011, after completing their Introductory Interpreting course. She finds her role incredibly satisfying, not least because by removing the language barrier, she is enabling people to make their own decisions with full understanding. In Mariko’s own words, “This job is so meaningful for me because I am working with people at very vulnerable times in their lives, mostly in quite undesirable circumstances. Japanese people don’t often need interpreters for everyday communication, so this work is both critical and extremely rewarding.” With Interpreting NZ’s support, Mariko has recently gained an international qualification as a Japanese interpreter, because she enjoys the challenge of the job and wants to perform at her full potential. Training is essential, because although being fully competent in language is a necessity, the skill of transferring a message accurately between languages requires great

mental dexterity as well as a good knowledge of terminology in a wide variety of settings. In addition, interpreters must remain neutral, and keep things confidential – being signed up to a code of ethics is part of the job. If you are fully proficient in English and at least one other language, is this is a job for you? You’ll find that you’re never bored – every assignment is different, so you could be working at the doctor’s one day and a lawyer’s office the next.

If you want a successful outcome when constructing your landscape garden, or house for that matter, there are three components you need to get right. They are good quality design, good quality materials and good quality workmanship. For example, when looking at what planting is best for your garden, you need to design your planting to achieve a good balance of plants to hard surfaces like paving, using plants that will grow well in the environment and for their intended purpose, and only use quality plants grown locally. When planting you want to use quality garden mixes, and plant firmly in the ground. At this time of the year it wouldn’t be sensible


to plant unless you had an irrigation system, as people are away on holiday. If you are laying or sowing a lawn at this time an automated irrigation system is essential. Landscape construction includes hard construction such as walls, fences, paving, and concrete as well as garden lighting and irrigation which have become part of most landscapes now. To get a successful outcome good design, materials and workmanship are essential to get a Box 13-402, Wellington 6440 good long termPOresult.

Irrigation is important in your garden especially over the summer months, but equally important is reducing your water usage. Your garden needs plenty of water to stay healthy and to ensure your plants and lawn stay green, the right watering is essential. A top tip for saving water is to water your garden in the morning and your pots in the afternoon. The timing of when you water pot plants during the day can have a significant effect on plant growth. Watering container plants in the afternoon may lead to healthier, stronger growing plants compared to container plants watered early in the morning. It is also a good idea to harvest water-ways to

This means selecting a general system appropriate to need, and choosing individual items that are efficient and cost effective. The systems are up

save and reuse water. Install a water tank rather than wasting rainwater to maximise roof runoff. The second is to save your cooking water. If you steam or boil vegetables, save the water – it’s full of nutrients and when cooled makes a free fertiliser for watering your plants. Another easy way to save water is to make a water-wise pot choice if container gardening. For example, metal heats up quickly so raised galvanised garden beds and metal containers will draw moisture out of the soil and these gardens will need more watering. Clay pots will lose moisture through their porous surface and the soil will dry out faster than glazed pots. It’s vital to use a quality potting mix that holds moisture. but can be readily mastered with a little care, attention, advice and knowledge. The Twigland’s team can help you with garden styles, plant selections and garden care products to suit your conditions. Talk with one of them when you next visit. to date. For distant automated systems, modern controllers can signal that action is needed. Given ‘the summer of drought’, more people are now considering installing tanks to harvest rain when it does fall. Downflow from a garage can deliver useful reserves. Better some rainfall doled out to your lettuces than all wasted down the storm water drains.

With just a little help from Twigland your garden will overflow with an abundance of fresh flowers, herbs and veges. Before planting create a rich base by digging in Twigland Super Compost Then regular liquid feeds with Ican Fast Food will get those plants pumping! Cover bare surfaces or the tops of pots with some Tui Mulch & Feed. It adds a little food each time you water and traps moisture in the soil. Keeping your plants well fed and watered will make them more bug and disease resistant. Happy plants = Happy gardener!

Using Bokashi in your garden Bokashi (fermented grain) Buckets are mini indoor compost systems which are fantastic and efficient ways to compost food scraps and add moisture to the soil. Bokashi is inoculated with beneficial microbes that flourish in anaerobic, acidic environments but do not smell as bad as those in unfettered, natural anaerobic conditions. They are available commercially but if you are a thrifty gardener you can easily make your own at home. All you need are a couple of buckets the same size – one fitted inside the other with holes drilled in the base of the top one to allow the liquid, or fermented juice, from the scraps to drip into the base of the lower bucket. Finally, fit the lid to the top bucket. You can then just dig the scraps into your garden or add to the compost and dilute the juice to use as a fertiliser. After collecting your food scraps in the bokashi bin, you can dig them into the compost to feed soil microorganisms and build soil health. Bokashi sprinkled into the compost acts as an accelerator and speeds up decomposition. Watch your food scraps disappear in a week in this active compost pile. Bokashi can be added to an aerobic compost pile, added

directly to soil, or used to create compost tea for watering plants. Bokashi needs to be kept as free from oxygen as possible. Compress each day’s waste flat into the container so as to eliminate any air pockets and avoid stirring up the previous day’s waste when putting in new garbage. Drawing off liquid regularly helps maintain the environment needed by the bacteria that break down the organic materials. That liquid needs to be used within a day or so.

The top 5 sporting moments from the northern and western suburbs in 2016 SALES

David Lewis E: P: 587 1660

By Sharnahea Wilson

 A Kelburn woman achieved her ultimate goal of qualifying for an international Ironman championship and made her way to Kailua-Kona, Hawaii late last year. Sierra Ryland achieved an impressive feat on March 5 2016, managing to land second place at the New Zealand Ironman triathlon held in Taupo.  Two keen sportswomen set an Onslow College record after returning home from a national rowing championship with a bronze medal. Olivia Clark and Constance Stirling were part of a team of six who participated in the Maadi Cup – the largest school sports event in the Southern Hemisphere. Prior to the competition which began on April 2, the team was practicing nine times per week to perfect their skills.  A young rising tennis star helped get her team of three qualified for the world finals held in Hungary late last year.

Dedicated 15-year-old Onlsow College student Tamara Anderson helped the New Zealand under 16 girls’ Junior Federation Cup tennis team qualify for the world finals in October 2016.  Waterside Karori football club’s top side claimed the Capital Premier title when they won 2-0 against hosts Victoria University. Wharfies were the star side for most of the season and were chased hard for the title by Whitby side Western Suburbs who kept the pressure on right up to the end with a final 3-1 win at Island Bay. Wharfies then narrowly missed out on a Central League promotion.  The Johnsonville Rugby Club Colts team grabbed some silverware for the club last season when they downed Wainuiomata 26-3 at Helston Park in June to keep their unbeaten run intact. In doing so they secured the JRD Cup for first-round supremacy in the colts B division and gained promotion to the A division for the next round.

Sports talk with Jacob Page...

The curious case of Ronda Rousey “Forget about Ronda”. Those were the words of UFC bantamweight women’s champion, Amanda Nunes after she stopped the former pin-up girl of MMA with a 48-second TKO in Las Vegas. I was fortunate to be in Vegas for the event thanks to some complimentary tickets. The reaction for Rousey was enormous from the 20,000-strong crowd inside the T-Mobile Center. That’s as good as it got for the hometown girl. I was once fully on the Rousey bandwagon, who doesn’t find a good looking woman who kicks butt attractive? However, I lost respect for her

after her first loss because of how she carried herself post-fight. The 29-year-old was making her comeback after losing her title and her vaunted undefeated streak more than a year earlier in a one-sided contest against Holly Holm. If that defeat was embarrassing, this one proved Rousey had become human proof of the phrase “hero to zero” in 12 months. Rousey had 12 months to prepare for her redemption and failed spectacularly. No head movement, no guard, no answers. Despite getting her head punched in, she will pocket $3
