‘Save the kiwi’ By Sharnahea Wilson

At just four years old, a local girl is making a big difference by donating her time to help save New Zealand’s beloved kiwi. Alexia Kaloynais, 4, of Paparangi Kindergarten first saw kiwi at Wellington Zoo two years ago and has had a passion for them ever since. Continued on page 2.

Safety initiative on University walkway launched Wellington City Council is working with Victoria University to keep the streets leading from the university into the Wellington CBD safe, Mayor Justin Lester announced. Focusing on the Boyd Wilson Field to The Terrace Walkway, Wellington City Council will be installing a CCTV camera at the top of the stairs to connect with the already existing CCTV system operated out of Victoria University. This follows an incident on January 20, where while walking along the path a female

had been followed by a male, police reported. After putting on a balaclava the male ran after the female and tackled her to the ground. Mr Lester said the CCTV installation was a first in a series of safety initiatives in the area. “I am committed to keeping the streets of Wellington safe. This is an area used frequently by university students and we want to make sure they have safe pathways into town. “We have a responsibility to ensure that everyone in Wel-

lington feels safe when they are walking around the city.” Victoria University of Wellington Student’s Association president Rory Lenihan-Ikin welcomed the work. “It’s great to see Wellington City Council and Victoria University working to make the streets safer. “This is going to make a huge difference to the students who use that walkway every day.” The council was also investigating a number of other smaller projects aiming to open up the area, making it

more visible and safer. These include increasing the frequency of maintenance of the area and an increased number of clean-ups to remove rubbish. Social development portfolio leader and Lambton Ward councillor Brian Dawson said the additional camera would be monitored through the CCTV hub based at the police station. “Our CCTV volunteers will be able to immediately alert police and the university security of any issues,” he said.

Four-year-old raises funds for Kiwi

SALES

Continued from page 1. Her mum Sarah Ellis said when they were out on a walk recently, it ruffled Alexia’s feathers when she discovered that kiwi were endangered and she wished there was something she could do to help. “She first saw kiwi when she was two, and she’s had a fascination with them ever since,” Sarah explained. Alexia then suggested that she and her mum raise some money to help the native birds. Sarah and Alexia made Popsicle sticks with kiwis on them, put together a raffle and even made a “guess how many” gummy worms are in the jar. Paparangi Kindergarten teacher Elizabeth Lee said she was blown away when she heard about what Alexia wanted to do to help the kiwi. “Part of the programme here is supporting children’s understanding about the place where they live. “We talk about their role in guarding and looking after the creatures in our environment.” Elizabeth said part of that learning included endangered species and what New Zea-

Housing units planned for prominent Ngaio site

inbrief news

By Sharnahea Wilson

Growth in housing consents

After being closed for the past four years the site of the Ngaio All Saint’s Church building could once again serve a purpose by being turned into Medium Density Housing. The Anglican Diocese, who own the land from 1-11 Abbott Street, have applied to the Wellington City Council for a resource consent to build 15 housing units on the land –

four of which would be inside the existing church building. The church, which has been closed for four years after being assessed as an earthquake risk, is also a council heritage listed building. Diocesan manager Nick Young said saving the church building was “one of the key drivers” behind the resource consent application. “It needs to be re-strengthened and we had to look at ways to utilise the land around

it.” He said the church had been “dormant for a long time” and the options were to do something with it or to leave it to deteriorate further. “We don’t want an earthquake prone building sitting there,” Nick said. The land has been designated a Special Housing Area under HASHA and would be developed in accordance with the requirements for developments in the area and council’s Long The Ngaio All Saint’s Church. PHOTO: Sharnahea Wilson

Term Plan, Nick said. The design plans currently include demolishing the vicarage and constructing 11 housing units and a single parking building to occupy the ground floor under units five to 12. Onslow-Western Ward councillor and urban development portfolio leader Andy Foster said he was pleased with the way council officers had been dealing with the resource consent. He said his only concern at the moment was the scale of the development. “It’s great they will restore the church building but [the development] would have a big impact on the area. “I think by possibly reducing the number and scale of the units everyone would win.” Ngaio Crofton Down Residents Association chairperson Robyn Radomski said she had been approached by some concerned residents about the resource consent. “I think more housing is needed across the whole of New Zealand… but our concern is that it is a small property for the scale of the building and number of units.” She said residents were also concerned that the units all appeared to be two storeys high. “This possibly rules out the older age group… it would be great if they put in single level dwellings.”

Wellington is making progress against its annual targets for new building consents, with 1204 new dwellings or sections consented in the last six months –over half the 1500 targeted for the year, the Wellington City Council announced. The 1500 target is part of the Wellington Housing Accord, which established special housing areas to fast track the building of new homes in the capital. Mayor Justin Lester said these figures will be a boost to Wellingtonians concerned about finding affordable homes. “For the last two years, growth in new consents has lagged behind our targets, but this year we are in a very strong position and tracking very well.”

Peter Gilberd honoured by Paparangi Marae By Sharnahea Wilson

A local Wellington City Councillor has been recognised by Nga Hau e Wha o Papararangi for his contributions to both the Marae and the wider community. Peter Gilberd was recently honoured with a cloak, weaved by members of the Marae, thanking him for his help with the restoration of their building in 2012 as well as the extensive planting he has done in the area. Peter has helped with the planting of trees and bush on the Marae site, managed Jay Street nursery, has been on the Marae committee and has been part of their ‘Twenty Year Planting Programme’. The northern ward councillor said he was “absolutely delighted” when he was told at the end of last year he would be thanked by the Marae. “I could not have been happier… being recognised by the Marae in that way was just a great honour for me.” On the evening Peter was presented the hand-woven cloak, featuring a rich green colour to represent the environment, by Marae committee members Rawinia Edmonds and Leigh-

sah Rawiri. His fellow councillors Jill Day and Malcolm Sparrow were also there to show their support. Peter said he valued the work done by the local Marae in preserving the area as well as bringing the community closer together. He said the planting plan, funded by Nga Whenua Rahui, incorporated weaving, me-

dicinal plants, and traditional cuisine, as well as the plant propagation and forest restoration. The Marae members had also woven a cloak for Wellington Mayor Justin Lester which he wore to his inauguration last year. “The Wellington City Council has an upcoming meeting at Pipitea Marae, Justin and I will

wear our cloaks there,” Peter said, explaining how it was important to build ties with local iwi.  The Marae will be open for a Neighbours Day celebration which the whole community is invited to attend, more information about this can be found on their website. http:// nhewop.org.nz/

Missing Woodridge woman found dead in local bush area A Woodridge woman who went missing over the weekend was sadly found dead in a bush area in Woodridge on Sunday evening. Kabai Liu, who was 76 years old, had been missing since Friday morning, Police said. Wellington Police and Search and Rescue located a body,

confirmed to be Kabai, at 7pm on Friday. Police had been concerned for her safety after she went missing on Thursday morning but she was later located on Oriental Parade at around 11.50pm that night. She was returned to her family home in Woodridge.

However, her family discovered her missing again around 8.30am on Friday morning and believed she may have left home sometime after 2.30am, Police said. Kabai’s family were particularly concerned as she was Chinese and spoke very little English.

Police did not believe she had any ID or money in her possession and therefore, would not be able to use public transport, the second time she went missing. Kabai’s death has been referred to the Coroner. Police said their thoughts were with her family and friends at this sad time.

Green Party not to stand candidate in Ohariu The Green Party has decided not to stand a candidate in the Ohariu electorate for the 2017 general election after signing a Memorandum of Understanding with Labour. “The Green Party’s priority is changing the Government in 2017. We have been very clear with our supporters and the public about that since we signed the Memorandum of Understanding with Labour last year,” Green Party Co-leader James Shaw said. “Ohariu has a significant impact on the makeup of Parliament. Not standing in Ohariu increases the chances that we will be in a position to change the Government in September – it’s as simple as that. “If we want to ensure our economy is working for everyone, our environment is protected, and our children grow up with every opportunity possible, then we need to change the Government. “The Greens will still campaign strongly for the party vote in Ohariu because under MMP, the party vote determines the number of MPs each party has. “Our decision in Ohariu has no bearing or influence on any other electorate,” Mr Shaw said. UnitedFuture leader and Ohariu incumbent Peter Dunne has said this understanding may not ensure Labour gains the Ohariu seat. “[The Greens and Labour] make

the heroic assumption that in that situation the 16 per cent of voters who supported the National candidate [in 2014] will all continue to do so again. “Yet, if only a third of those voters shifted their support to the UnitedFuture candidate, the Labour/Greens dream would be all over,” he said. List MP for Ohariu Brett Hudson, who ran as the National Party nominee for the Ohariu seat in the last general election and will do so again this year, said it was difficult to determine who the Green votes would go to. “I don’t think we can really predict what the Green voters will do now that the option [to vote Green] has been taken away.” “Continued feedback I get from voters is that [National Party] support is just as good, if not better, than it was in 2014. “My intention is to grow our support as much as I possibly can.”

Uniting locals with blackberry feast By Sharnahea Wilson

A Blackberry Feast to bring Glenside locals together ahead of this year’s Neighbours Day was a great success, organisers say. The Big Blackberry Feast, held in partnership with the Wellington City Council on February 19, was enjoyed by about 80 residents – young and old. “It was an excellent way to connect people in the community, which is the intent of Neighbours Day,” Glenside Resident’s Association president Claire Bibby said. “There were great connections occurring and the opportunity Glenside residents enjoy a feast of blackberries for the 2017 Neighbours Day. for local people to get to know each other.” PHOTOS: Supplied

Claire said there were conversation cards on the table to get people talking about their childhoods and the first time they picked blackberries. The idea of the blackberry feast was for everyone to bring along a plate of food that incorporated blackberries as an ingredient. “[There were] cakes, pies, slices, pikelets, lamingtons, sausage rolls, all made using the ingredient blackberry and served up by a team of young adults,” Claire said. She said the Johnsonville Premier Rugby team, and their coach Logan, provided sports games for the young children. Master of Ceremonies, Alan Brosnan honoured the older

generation by saying they were “without a doubt, responsible for providing the foundation, structure and direction which got the rest of us to where we are today”. Local resident for over 40 years Barbara Bligh said it was a “marvellous day” which was organised well by everyone involved. “The food was absolutely fantastic, everyone was in good spirits – it was a lovely day.” Among those present on the day were Wellington Mayor Justin Lester, with his wife Liz, and northern ward councillors Malcolm Sparrow, Peter Gilberd and Jill Day.  Neighbours Day will officially take place on March 25-26.

Makara School children’s passion for gardening has paid off in spades – taking out the top prize in the Yates Spring Vegie Growing Challenge. The school, which has a roll of 53 children, won the ‘Best Garden – School’ receiving $500 plus a hamper of Yates products. Principal Gail Dewar said gardening was an integral part of the school’s curriculum and the competition boosted the children’s learning. “The garden is very much a part of the playground with a range of edible plants to be found around the school and always a level of change and excitement going on. “We were fortunate to have huge support from one of our parents, Jenny Pudney, who toiled away in the garden and helped the children appreciate what is needed to grow good things to eat.” The children successfully grew a range of vegetables and Charlotte Robinson, 7, said “you can eat the vegies that you grow any time you want”. “I just love eating them straight from the garden,” she said.

One of the challenges of gardening was dealing with rabbits helping themselves to the corn and rats eating the pea seeds, Gail explained. “The kids sat down together and did some trouble-shooting around the problem and came up with a contraption to deter the rabbits made out of bamboo and frost cloth which worked a treat. “We managed to trap the rats too which helped us get the peas going.” The Yates hamper will be put to good use in the garden and Gail said the $500 would go towards a number of items to help with the school’s gardens. Yates marketing manager Fiona Arthur said the school had done an amazing job with their garden. “It was wonderful to see the children’s enthusiasm for not just growing vegetables but the learning that goes with gardening.”  The competition is in its sixth year and will run again this September.

‘Escaped Alone’ to feature in Circa Women’s Festival THE DOG SQUAD By Sharnahea Wilson

A local director is excited to be working on all-women show ‘Escaped Alone’, as part of Circa Theatre’s Women’s Theatre Festival. Escaped Alone director Susan Wilson of Kelburn said each day the story became more relevant and timely. “We make new discoveries in the text and find new resonances. It is a joyful, satisfying experience to be working on such accomplished writing,” she said. Written by Caryl Churchill, the story incorporates three friends and a neighbour played by some of New Zealand’s finest senior actors – Ginette McDonald, Carmel McGlone, Jane Waddell and Irene Wood. A summer of afternoons in the backyard garden, drinking tea and chatting, lots of gossip, lots of idle chit chat and casual conversation becomes a pool of radiance defiant

of the terrible darkness outside. The Women’s Festival will run from February 25 to March 26 and Circa will present a smorgasbord of performances, play readings, panels and a workshop that will celebrate the achievement of women and promote theatrical equality in Aotearoa. Susan said it was important to have a Women’s Festival and recalled her time at Playmarket some years ago.

“I attended lots of wonderful Women’s Conferences. It seems a while ago that in Wellington we focussed on women’s work. “This festival is long over-due and with the recent worldwide political events we need to unite as women.” Susan said she has worked with all female casts on several occasions and it was “always an enjoyable experience”. “The dynamic created is interest-

ing and challenging. And Escaped Alone with this wonderful cast is no exception.” She said the cast of four brought a wealth of experience “probably about 120 years between them”. The 2017 Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Best Play winner will open at Circa Theatre on April 8.  For more information visit http://www.circa.co.nz/package/ escaped-alone/

LETTERS to the editor

Council should scrap pet projects Dear Ed, Saving $8 million by the new Mayor (Herald 15 February) is far easier than it is made to appear in the Council’s publicity. Scrapping pet projects which have been pushed forward at election time is the normal approach from a P.R. point-of-view.

An example is not proceeding with the ill-begotten and badly conceived plans to wreck the children’s playground and amphitheatre at Frank Kitts Park. That saves $5 million to start with. Michael Gibson Northland

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Q: If you had 10 minutes to leave your house in an emergency what would you take with you?

“I’m from Britain so I would take my passport, I would also take my dog, important documents and supplies for the kids.”

“My photos – the older ones that are not online, as well as a few precious family things.”

“Clothes, I would grab everything off the coat hangers in my wardrobe, and I would take my jewellery.”

“We have a tin box with all of our legal papers in it so I would take that, and I would take my cellphone – I always leave it on charge.”

“My computer, it’s important for my study and it has my photos on it so it’s sentimental as well.”

Randall McLean, Churton Park “My children, and I would take my lap top – it has all the photos on it.”

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville two intruders entered a property in Ohariu Road which houses farm stay workers and tourists. On entering through an unlocked door they were challenged by a resident. The intruders ran off and were tracked by Police into a forested area where the trail was lost. An elderly man living in a retirement village received a phone call relating to an alleged problem that had arisen with automatic payments between his bank and a power company. Before realising

that the call was fraudulent he gave details of his email address and his bank access number for internet banking. When asked for his pin number and his net guard card details he refused and ended the call. He rang his bank and his access details were changed but it was later discovered that his account had already been accessed twice and two substantial sums had been withdrawn. A blue Toyota Carib stationwagon parked overnight unlocked in a car-

park on Bracken Road was stolen. A blue Ford Laser saloon parked in Newlands Road during the afternoon sustained some damage when the driver of another car struck her window with a metal object because he claimed that the car was blocking his exit. Police have a description of the offending driver. A house and garage in Robert Street sustained damage in a break-in attempt. No entry gained. An unsuccessful attempt was made to force open the door of a large container located in

the grounds of a school in Bancroft Terrace. A large amount of smashed glass was found in various areas of the school grounds. In Khandallah a pop-up flower shop container in the grounds of the Presbyterian Church in Ganges Road was broken into. The padlock securing the door had been removed. The float of $100 was stolen. In Churton Park an intruder entered a property in Burdendale Grove and removed the panels and flashing joining the house and the

garage. In Grenada Village houses under construction continue to be targets for thieves. In Trelawney Terrace building paper and a large number of plywood sheets were stolen. Similar materials were also stolen from a partly constructed house in Portmore Place. In Broadmeadows an unsuccessful attempt was made to force an entry in a house in Kanpur Road. Two rear aluminium windows were jemmied which loosened the catches but did not open to allow entry.

Ladies unite at Cashmere Home The ladies of Enliven’s Cashmere Home in Johnsonville have rallied together to start their very own group. Recreation officer Liz Rivadelo says the ladies’ group is focused on forming friendships, furthering their knowledge and connecting with their community, similar to the Women’s Institute. “We have great volunteer speakers and it is helping the residents to have more contact with their community, to continue to learn and develop their knowledge, to deepen friendships and to improve their confidence and sense of community,” Liz explains. Cashmere Home resident Shirley Thomas says the group members are very interested in our country and local community. “We’ve had some great speakers. Andy Foster came in to talk about Zealandia and conservation, Dave Greenberg from Westpac Helicopter came in to talk about his experiences, someone from GeoNet came in to talk about earthquakes, and many more have come to speak to us,” says Shirley. “We like knowing what’s going on out in the community and we find people’s jobs interesting. You can never stop learning.” Liz says Cashmere Home also has a men’s group which meets weekly. “It’s important to connect with like-

minded people, and sometimes people feel more comfortable sharing experiences and talking with people of their own gender,” says Liz. “It also means the activities and speakers are tailored to the interests of the group.” Both groups are on the lookout for local businesses, clubs and people with interesting stories to tell or skills to share to connect with. Volunteer and ladies’ group organiser Anne Kemp is encouraging locals to get involved. “We have so much fun. It’s amazing how many local groups and businesses are keen to help, and the residents here have so much knowledge and special skills. It would be great to have more people volunteer to speak to the group,” says Anne. Anyone wishing to volunteer as a guest speaker can call 0508 TO HELP.  Cashmere Home, along with its sister-site Cashmere Heights Home, are operated by Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central, and provide rest home, hospital, respite and health recovery care from Helston Road in Johnsonville.

Annual Aro Valley Fair antics back again Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand’s Dawn Sanders.

Students set to shine with Sheilah Winn Shakespeare

Last year’s Aro Valley Fair. PHOTO: Supplied. By Sharnahea Wilson

The annual Aro Valley Fair is returning next month with over 50 stalls and all-day live performances from local groups. On Saturday, March 11 the Aro Valley community will come together to help run the fair, where the atmosphere is always electric, Sarah Child of Aro Valley Community Centre said. Fair-goers can shop for second-hand goods, homemade chutneys, jewellery, crafts and more. There will also be plenty of local food to try, including vegetarian pies, Austinstyle breakfast tacos, spring rolls, dutch pancakes and fudge. “As community developer I am really excited to be a part of my first fair and can already feel the community coming together,” Sarah said. There will be a variety of entertainment on the day, from Hawaiian Dance, vocal groups and drumming to local bands Cotton Daisy Backstep, The Spines and The Holloway Inmates. The Aro Valley Fair would not be complete without the Arolympics, which will

begin with an opening ceremony on the Friday at 7pm. Organised for the first time three years ago, by Kalvin Aris and Stephen Templer, the Arolympics remains a fair-favourite among locals. It is set to be a two-day event with an opening ceremony on the Friday and the games officially kicking off at midday on the Saturday, Stephen said. “It will start off on Friday with the Aro Valley Olympic torch relay. “It started off as an artistic and fun project... it’s about creating this beautiful imaginary world,” Stephen explained. The medal events on Saturday will include the pentathlon featuring quintessential Aro Valley experiences such as sampling Garage Project beers and answering quiz questions on the local fish and chip shop. “It’s spectacular for the audience to witness all these Aro Valley events.” Friendships are set to be put aside for a competitive two hours of events such as the gruelling tug-of-war and strategic limbo.  The Fair is free and will from 10am until 4pm on March 11.

After celebrating their 25th anniversary last year, the Shakespeare Globe Centre New Zealand is busily preparing for this year’s Sheilah Winn Festivals. The Regional University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festivals see secondary school students across the country come together in their regions to perform five and 15-minute scenes from Shakespeare’s plays. Globe Centre New Zealand CEO and founder Dawn Sanders said the festivals allow students to express their own interpretations of the world and human nature. She said this was done “through Shakespeare and often shines a new light on these immortal stories”. She said the festivals are a “flurry of fun, creativity, talent, and inspiration”. “[Our] main goal, however, is providing secondary students all over the country with experiences full of educational, arts

and personal value,” Dawn said. She said two outstanding scenes from each region would be selected to go the National Festival in Wellington over Queen’s Birthday weekend. “The biggest benefit for all participants, however, is the exceptional experience itself.” With over 70 per cent of the scenes being directed by students a raft of skills, including time management, team work, and creativity, is being developed and fostered, Dawn said. The Wellington Regional Festival will be held April 10, 11 and 12 starting at 7pm each night at Wellington East Girls’ College Hall. Wellington Mayor Justin Lester will be there on the last night and will announce the two groups selected by the two Assessors to perform at the National Festival.  Entries for the regional festival are due on March 30.

THE PRESERVATION OF HEALTH IS EASIER THAN THE CURE OF THE DISEASE

Conjunctivitis is a common condition which can be encountered all year round. It is associated with spring and the hay fever season as well as the colder winter months accompanying head colds and infections. The symptoms of conjunctivitis include red irritated eyes that may feel gritty, sore and uncomfortable. They can also be itchy, sticky and weepy. Conjunctivitis is caused by an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin membrane that protects the white of the eye and inside the eyelids. When you visit your pharmacy with these symptoms your Self Care pharmacist will ask questions to determine the cause of the conjunctivitis and will give you advice about which eye drops are most suitable for you. Causes of conjunctivitis can be divided into 3 groups, being infection or allergy or an irritant. 1) Infections can be caused by bacteria or viruses. These infections can be very contagious. Special care needs to be taken not to spread the infection to the other eye or to other people. The infection should clear within a week when left untreated. However the need for antibiotics for bacterial infections should be considered in certain circumstances, to prevent complications or to prevent the spread of

infection to other people. The antibiotic Chloramphenicol is available from your Self Care Pharmacist and they can advise if this would be the most appropriate treatment for you. 2) Allergic conjunctivitis or non-infective conjunctivitis may be due to seasonal triggers such as pollens or may be from other elements that are around all year round such as house dust or pet fur. Antihistamine eye drops are useful in the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis for itchy and irritated red eyes and oral antihistamines that you can take are also available. It is helpful to try and identify the cause of the allergy, so that it can be avoided as much as possible. 3) Irritant or chemical conjunctivitis can have a mechanical or chemical cause, such as foreign objects or chlorine from the swimming pool. This type of conjunctivitis usually clears when the cause is removed. If there is pain in your eye, or if your vision is affected, or your eyes are more sensitive to light than usual then your optometrist or doctor needs to be consulted. Other situations where your optometrist or doctor need to be consulted are for children under two years of age, contact lens wearers who have a greater risk of

serious eye infections and if symptoms do not improve with treatment or worsen after a few days. Here are some helpful tips for general eye care for conjunctivitis Wash your hands and dry well before using eye drops and after touching your eyes Apply a clean flannel soaked in warm water to the eye to clean away any discharge before instilling eye drops Apply normal saline to wash and soothe the eyes Use lubricant eye drops 4 to 8 times daily to soothe eyes Your eye drops are just for your use only, not to be shared with other people Use the eye drops as directed and instil only the number of drops recommended Prevent the spread to other people by NOT sharing face cloths, towels or make-up Discard eye drops one month after opening the bottle Your Self Care pharmacist will be able to assist you to identify if you have conjunctivitis and recommend appropriate treatment.  For more information see the fact cards on ‘Eye Care and Conjunctivitis’ and ‘Hayfever’.

Local sites encourage nature-friendly children A few local family-favourite locations have been listed as Toyota Kiwi Guardians sites in Wellington City – encouraging Wellingtonians to get in touch with nature. Weta, tuatara, herb gardens, cork trees and 800-year-old rimu trees are just some among many reasons local children are getting in touch with nature. Free family-friendly, treasure hunt style activities at specific Department of Conservation sites are set to encourage children to engage with the outdoors. The much loved Zealandia, with its 32 kilometres of walking tracks through native bush in Karori, is one of the local chosen sites. The Wellington Botanic Garden has an herb garden and cork oak trees as well as

a wide variety of other plants, while the Wellington Zoo, New Zealand’s first zoo, has a variety of native and exotic animals and birds to see. The Otari-Wilton Bush in Wilton Road is the only public botanic garden in New Zealand that is solely devoted to native plants – it has 800-year-old rimu trees and a canopy walk. Toyota Kiwi Guardians is a joint initiative between the Department of Conservation and Toyota New Zealand. The goal of the conservation programme is to turn Kiwi kids into guardians of the land and sea.  Families can get started on the Wellington City Toyota Kiwi Guardians adventures by downloading the appropriate “treasure hunt” map from: www.kiwiguardians.co.nz

Police Association President turned politician wins Communicator of the Year Award Former Police Association President and Labour Party election candidate Greg O’Connor has been named winner of a Communicator of the Year Award. The winner was selected by BlacklandPR and students at Massey University’s School of Communication, Journalism, and Marketing. BlacklandPR director Mark Blackham said Mr O’Connor was selected because of his ability to get to the nub of an issue and express a position persuasively. Over 2016 Greg spoke on topics such as the number of police and resourcing for burglaries, police shootings and pursuits, and unlicensed guns. “Greg expresses issues that matter to police, in ways that

matter to the public and politicians. “There’s a huge skill behind Greg’s apparent plainness of speaking. Moreover, he is bold enough to be clear and unequivocal. That’s why his communication is heard and heeded.” Mr O’Connor was also the category winner for Public Services Communicator. He said his approach was to stand back from an issue and assess what mattered to ordinary people. “You have to figure how your issue is relevant to other people, then express it in ways they relate to. People deserve the respect of an unambiguous position, backed with solid evidence.” BlacklandPR established

Greg O’Connor

the Communicator of the Year award to promote clarity of communication in public life. This year Massey joined as a partner, assisting with collation and selection of winners.

New programme for elders of Wellington’s western suburbs By Sharnahea Wilson

Onslow Medical Centre

Enliven’s Huntleigh Home in Karori is launching a brand new day programme next week for elders living in the community. The day programme at Huntleigh Home was specifically developed for elders to get out of the house and socialise with likeminded people while their family carer is able to have a break. Huntleigh Home and Apartments manager Suzanne Simpson said the idea to start a day programme was sparked by an obvious need within the community. “We were asked by the District Health Board if we could provide a day programme because there is a real need for it in Karori.” She said the day programme at Huntleigh Home is for elders to socialise, to become better connected to their community and to keep their mind and body active. “The programme is guided by our Eden Alternative philosophy of care which focuses on providing companionship, fun,

variety and meaningful activity. “They can participate in our recreational programme, run by our team of trained recreation officers.” Suzanne said the activities on offer include board games, organised entertainment, art and craft making, gardening – and sometimes using the vegetables from the garden to make soup. “There are different activities each day and we will get to know what each person’s likes and dislikes are. “The day programme is important as it will help prevent isolation and loneliness among elders in our communities.” The programme is suited for people in the community who are living on their own or with a carer, Suzanne said. From March 1 the day programme at Huntleigh Home will run Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday each week from 10am to 4pm. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea are provided. The programme can be paid for privately, although subsidies are often available through the DHB.

Exciting partnership for local football

Local Black Sox player scoops MVP at international tournament By Jo Lucre WINTEC JOURNALISM STUDENT

Black Sox pitcher and Johnsonville resident Josh Pettett won most valuable player recently at the TAB Challenge Cup with the team’s spectacular 9-0 win over Argentina. The International Men’s Softball tournament held in Auckland showcased five days of world class softball from Japan, Argentina, Australia, Czech Republic and Samoa. “ It was pretty cool to win the tournament and then to get that [the award]on top was an added bonus,” Josh said. His first tour with the Black Sox was to

An exciting partnership between a local school and the Waterside Karori Swifts Talent Centre has the future of girls’ football looking bright. The partnership between the centre and Samuel Marsden Collegiate School is set to provide girls with a clear, consistent development pathway through school and club football. The centre will also run a girls’ football programme at Marsden School, available to all girls as part of the curriculum, and will provide professional development for Marsden coaches and teachers. “We are extremely pleased with this phase in our football programme development,” Marsden director of sport Eliott Brookes said. “Our partnership with Swifts offers our girls the best in programmes available and

will enable girls excelling in the sport to be offered new challenges and opportunities.” Marsden’s XI players will have full access to extra training and a level of competition and challenge outside what they get at school football, including participation in boy’s football or senior women’s football. Two way scholarships will also be on offer and joint training, holiday and individual coaching form part of the elite programme. Director of Coaching at Swifts Ryan Edwards said the partnership would provide a wonderful opportunity for girls who are passionate about football. “We want to help them become better players, give them the chance to take their football further, and expose them to a positive and professional environment that inspires them.”

Sports talk

with Jacob Page

The curious case of Ross Taylor It is a shambles to think Ross Taylor isn’t an automatic selection for the Black Caps regardless of the format. His exclusion from the Twenty20 game against South Africa on Friday was a huge mistake. Not only because New Zealand suffered a humiliating loss but because the tour is so vital and momentum in the first match all went to South Africa. Taylor is arguably in some of the best form of his career. Centuries against Bangladesh and Australia in recent months prove that. There still seems to be some uneasiness with the former captain and the powers that be at New Zealand Cricket. At a time where the national team

is rebuilding, under a new leader in Kane Williamson, the experience of Taylor in the pivotal No 4 position is more important than ever. Besides, it’s not like there is a better option going around. Colin Munro has been appalling, Corey Anderson has barely contributed of late and the same could be said for Jimmy Neesham. If there are political currents against Taylor, then these must be put aside for the sake of the team. He’s still one of our top two batsmen and is on the cusp of equalling his late mentor Martin Crowe’s test century haul of 17. He’s earned the right to equal and eclipse that record and ensure he leaves the game as New Zealand’s most prolific batsman.

Canada three years ago and he made the tour team to Argentina last November. Josh, 23, returned last season after a shoulder injury left him unable to pitch or play in overseas tournaments for more than a year. He said the highlights of the Challenge Cup were playing at home and on TV. “The Black Sox have only played a couple of times at home so it’s kind of cool playing in front of a home crowd, it’s a bit different than playing over in South America or somewhere.” Josh said his continued interest in softball came down to family, and his Johnsonville club was really family orientated. He said in later years it had been the travel, being able to go all across the world just pitching. The next big thing for softball was the world series and Josh said most selectors would have been at the National Fastpitch Championships last week where he was top pitcher. Josh hoped to make the selection for the 17-man squad to play the world series in Canada in July. His mum Michelle said Josh grew up around softball and his dad Rhys was still pitching at premier level when Josh was born. “By the time he was walking at 10 months he was dragging his Dad’s softball bat around behind him.” Michelle said his selection for the Black Sox team for the Challenge Cup Series was a special moment for her family and a tribute to everyone that supported him. “Playing ball was in his blood,” she said.
