Oarsome Paddlers By Dave Crampton

A team of breast cancer survivors have come away with a collection of medals after competing in the North Island dragonboating festival in Auckland last weekend. The CanSurvive team is pretty tough to beat. It is also a tough team to make, as it requires participants to undergo breast cancer surgery. Continued on page 2. Carole Rudman with paddling buddies Marlene Solomon, Lynley Wimsett , and Jana Babor after their recent victory.

Cancer survivors unbeaten at nationals Continued from page 1. “That’s what qualifies you for the team,” CanSurvive chairperson Ioana Ellwood-Smith says. Th team was unbeaten in Auckland among teams of breast cancer survivors, and is ranked third in the world. Carole Rudman, 70, who travels from Wainuiomata to Wellington twice a week to train, joined the group five years ago after having a double mastectomy nearly 15 years prior. “I gave it a go and got the shock of my life,” she recalled. “It wasn’t as easy as I thought would be. I didn’t really think I could do it.” Now she has three medals, after winning the 200m, 500m, and 2000m events . “We won the cup to go with it,” she said. “We were so excited. We just seeming to be getting better and faster – but we trained really, really hard for that 2k.”

CanSurvive paddlers display the silverware after their wins.

“We just motored the whole way.” The paddling team is in preparation for the next International Breast Cancer Paddlers Commission world championships in Florence, Italy next year with 5,000 teams competing. The dragonboat season is

short, usually from December to March, but the CanSurvive women train year-round. The team has an average age of 59 but the oldest is 73. Ioana, 49, is the youngest. The next step is the national championships at Lake Karapiro in a couple of weeks where

a National title – among teams of breast cancer survivors - may well be for the taking. Carole is looking forward to that. However, it’s not just the paddling that she enjoys. “It’s also the comradeship – and it keeps me fit. Everyone on that boat loves it.”

School support staff seeking fair pay and conditions Support staff in Wainuiomata’s schools held a paid union meeting at Wainuiomata Primary School on March 23 as their jobs are threatened due to a freeze on school funding. Unlike other teachers, the region’s 60 support staff are paid through school operations grants, but funding was frozen last May. Most work part time, and are calling for a pay increase and better working conditions. Wa i n u i o m a t a P r i m a r y School’s executive assistant Janet Low says the meeting was

held to create awareness in the community. It was also one of several meetings nationwide organised by the New Zealand Educational Institute aiming to put pressure on the government to lift the funding freeze. “People in the community don’t know how badly they are paid,” she said. Workers are calling on a 2 per cent pay increase, in line with other teachers, and centrally funded support staff, but Janet concedes that’s unlikely to happen in an election year. She said that support staff workers

are dependent on decisions of school principals who favour funding of support workers, but said it’s the Government who should be more creative. She said she has no idea how the government will ensure that support staff keep their jobs if the operations grant remains frozen. “Who knows what they are going to do?” One Wainuiomata teacher who wished to remain anonymous said some support workers were funded due to funding through the Ongoing Re-

sourcing Scheme (ORS), but when these students switched schools, the funding went with them, meaning support workers hours were effectively cut. NZEI support staff representative and secondary school teacher aide Sue Poole said an increase in school operations grants was more important than tax cuts. “We know that the government has a war chest ready to go. Instead of a tax cut, we’re asking for the government to do the right thing by us, and the children we work with.”

TiHei Rangitahi wins award at indigenous film festival A group of young students from TiHei Rangitahi have come back from an indigenous fi lm making festival with an award and a plaque to go with it. The E Tu Whenua Rangitahi film making awards were held on March 17 in Otaki, and the group won ‘best use of theme’ among all entrants in the Lower North Island. The group wrote an original song, with the theme ‘All We Need Is Love’, put a beat to it, and recorded it themselves, executive producer Renee Davies said. Each child wrote a line or two

and we did the video on our own TiHei Rangithi way,” she said. Nataahia Pasene, 11, who contributed to the song and performed in the video, was surprised to win the award, as it was the first time the group had entered. She said making the video was time-consuming. “It was fun, but also stressful as we had to do things over, and over, and over again,” she said. Huta Wagner, 12, thought the day off school was well worth it, adding that he couldn’t quite believe it when the group was called up as winner. “I thought it was a hoax,” he said. ”I was pretty excited. At least we won something.” The group enjoyed travelling the Kapiti Expressway, doing workshops, and having fish and chips on the beach. They a re now look ing at working on their next project, where they will write a song about being smoke-free. “It is awesome -we are really proud of our kids.” Renee said. “They have so much more confidence now, they want to do more.” TiHei Rangitahi youth celebrate their win at an indigenous film festival.

More free flu vaccinations are coming For the first time, pregnant women and people aged 65 and older will have access to free flu vaccinations at selected Unichem Life community pharmacies from next month. Green Cross Health, the group behind Unichem, Life Pharmacy and The Doctors medical centres, has welcomed

the move to improve access to flu vaccines for New Zealand communities. More than 1.2 million New Zealanders are vaccinated annually. Last year, 67 per cent of over 65 year olds and 18 per cent of pregnant women received a flu vaccination. Green Cross Health Group

Manager, Professional Services, Alison Van Wyk said making the vaccination free in pharmacies to those most at risk due to age and pregnancy adds another layer of protection. “There remains a large proportion of New Zealanders who are not getting the flu

vaccination and who could benefit from accessing it.” People with certain chronic medical conditions such as asthma and some cardiovascular conditions should continue to access the vaccine free. No appointments with the selected pharmacies are necessary.

inbrief news Surveying The Hutt City Council is surveying people to find out how and why people move around the city and where and why people park their vehicles. This survey is to look at innovative solutions to parking and moving around Lower Hutt. The final date for your survey response is Tuesday 21 March. The survey is online here. http://survey. publicvoice.co.nz/s3/parkinginthehutt. The survey is not related to free parking in the city. That trial ends on April 3.

Salvation Army wants collectors The Salvation Army is offering people the chance to enlist for an hour or more to support its fight to help vulnerable New Zealanders. The Army is expanding its search for collectors for its annual Red Shield Appeal week at the start of May. The appeal raises funds to support The Salvation Army’s frontline services tackling poverty in New Zealand. While the Army has typically used volunteers from among its staff and church members, along with clients who have volunteered to help, this year it is spreading the net wider by offering the public the chance to join for at least an hour. Salvation Army Community Engagement manager Rhondda Middleton say the Army is extremely grateful for the dedicated support of people who gave their time to collect in the past, and the appeal has received strong support from the public. The hope is to increase the number of collectors and sites this year, allowing more people to donate and in turn allowing The Salvation Army to assist even more Kiwis living in poverty. People who want to sign up as a collector can go to The Salvation Army’s website, www.salvationarmy.org.nz, and sign up.

Neighbours group wins meat pack

inbrief news

Draft Annual Plan Consultation on the Lower Hutt City Council’s Draft Annual Plan is open to public submissions until 28 April. For those who wish to provide written feedback, you can ask to talk to the Mayor and Councillors about your thoughts on Tuesday May 16 or Wednesday May 17. In 2014 a number of changes were made to the Local Government Act 2002. One of the major changes was the replacement of a full Draft Annual Plan with a Consultation Document. This document is a short summary of the significant variations proposed from the 2017 - 2018 year of the Long Term Plan 2015 - 2025. The consultation document can be viewed at http://iport a l . h u t t c i t y. g ov t . n z / R e c o r d / ReadOnly?Tab=3&Uri=4391026 The link for online submissions can be accessed at http://submissions. huttcity.govt.nz/consult24ols/

The Ruthven Road neighbourhood support group now have some free food for its next event.

Wainuiomata’s Ruthven Road neighbourhood support group has won a $50.00 meat and grocery pack in a photo competition. Katrina Barclay recently sent in a photo of a gathering in October when they celebrated Diwa li. Atish a nd Natasha Nand had the neighbours around and loaned all neighbours clothes for the occasion. “Natasha gave me fabric to make outfits for my children. We had a marvellous time and it was another fantastic neighbourhood event for us all to get together

and enjoy each other’s company,” Katrina said. Hutt Safe City Group Charitable Trust ran the competition in association with Neighbours Day which was last weekend. The Ruthven Road multicultural group, which meets bimonthly, has not only celebrated Diwali, the Nand’s have hosted a hangi for Waitangi Day and the group also celebrated Thanksgiving. While the group now has a meat pack, Katrina says it is also planning on having another hangi -for good reason. “Natasha has still got the hole in the ground.”

Mobile coverage coming, hopefully A campaign has been launched to get mobile coverage in a local mobile blackspot after it was included on the short-list for funding. The campaign was launched March 23 by Hutt South National list MP Chris Bishop. The Catchpool and Orongorongo valleys in the Rimutaka Forest Park were included on the funding short-list for funding through the government’s Mobile Blackspot Funding after lobbying from the Wainuiomata Rural Residents’ Association and other community groups. The fund exists to support the installation of cell phone towers. “Stage one is completed – getting onto the shortlist. Now we need to really send a message that this area needs mobile coverage,” Mr Bishop said.

The Rimutaka Forest Park is a massive asset for the Hutt Valley and Wainuiomata, with an estimated 100,000 tourists each year. While many people enter the park using the Catchpool entrance, the park is currently a mobile black spot. Mr Bishop is seeking tenders from chief executives of all the major providers, asking them to put end the mobile black spot in the park. “We need as many people as possible to show their support so the companies get a strong indication that this upgrade will be really valued by the local community, and also visitors to the area.” Mr Bishop is calling on people in Wainuiomata to show their support for ending the mobile black spot in the Forest Park by signing online at http://www.chrisbishop.co.nz/ support-mobile-coverage.

Terry Stallworth, Wainuiomata

“I don’t come out much but I love the place, the people that live here.”

“The weather - and its 35 minutes from the centre of Lambton Quay.”

“ It’s a family place – it’s fantastic.”

“Probably the people round here, they are friendly and the atmosphere’s nice.”

“The community spirit – it’s a tight-knit community.”

Drayton Templeton, Wainuiomata “The people – they are nice but some are not – you get those odd people.”

Re: ‘Having a say on the Mall’ Dear Ed, Amazed that Denise would even consider that Progessive Enterprises (the retail giants) would be interested in her or any of our suggestions as to what shops we’d like in the mall. Wainuiomata’s track record of supporting local retailers large and small is not great.

All the shops in the mall would still be open if Wainuiomata people spent money in them it’s simple really, shops close because they are not making money. Denise, there is a craft shop in Hammer Hardware, looking very sad and under stocked now that Spotlight is your (and many

others no doubt) shop of choice. We had a stationery shop, it closed due to the lack of patronage. Kids can play computer games at the Community Hub. ‘a nice coffee shop and something light to eat’ have a go at what we already have - Oaks Cafe, Bizzy Lizzy’s, The Fitzroy Tavern (they even do free coffee

and muffin on a Wednesday afternoon for us gold card holders!) and at least three of the many takeaway food bars in Queen street offer a place to sit and eat, don’t forget there is McDonalds. Use it or Lose it Wainuiomata, spend your money locally! Name withheld

Dear Sir, I hate to see kids that have fallen through the cracks. If Dylan Tamaha-Hall still needs hit NCEA level one and two he can attend Capital Training or Acts Training both in Lower Hutt, they will also give him a Snapper card to get there. Both places are fee free. http://www.capitaltraining.co.nz/ http://www.capitaltraining.co.nz/course/ learning-for-your-future http://www.actsinstitute.org.nz/

If he has level one already, then he has access to any of the Youth Guarantee programmes run at Weltec, Whiteria, Sports Institute or many other places. He has free access to these vocational programmes until he is 19. http://2017.weltec.ac.nz/youth-guarantee/ http://www.whitireia.ac.nz/student_services/Pages/YouthProgrammes.aspx http://www.youthguarantee.net.nz/finda-provider/providers-in-wellington/ I hope this helps. Name disclosed

Housing issues in Wainuiomata A public meeting was held in Petone a few weeks ago to discuss housing in the Hutt Valley, as demand for homes in Wainuiomata is on the rise. One Wainuiomata home-owner , Cheri, whom the Wainuiomata News has agreed not to fully name, attended the Petone meeting after being concerned at the number of people moving out of Wainuiomata for greener pastures elsewhere during the past five years. “I want my neighbours to stay the same,” she said. While 58 houses are under construction in Parkway Rise, and a Hutt City Council investment could lead to up to 350 homes at the end of Wise Street, Labour’s Hutt South candidate, Virginia Anderson says that’s not enough, and some of the houses built will be unaffordable to many. Her solution is social housing. To be considered for social housing you must have a serious housing need do everything

you can to find somewhere to live. But the amount of social housing is also limited. “It’s not meeting demand,” she said of the planned housing areas. “People in Wainuiomata will not be able to afford them. That’s why we need social housing.” Mrs Andersen, along with outgoing Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard, hosted the Jackson Street meeting as homes in Petone sell for $1 million and several homes in Wainuiomata have gone for $500,000. Mrs Andersen, who saved up and bought her own house aged 19, said that people have lost hope of owning their own home. She also said Wainuiomata families who want to move from smaller homes once their families grow, are having difficulty doing so if they wish to remain in Wainuiomata. The high demand for properties being built in Wainuiomata reflects the lack of available land to build in the Hutt Valley.

What would you do if there was a big earthquake tomorrow? To find out, an emergency preparedness open day is being held on 8 April to outline how to be prepared for a disaster and how to provide assistance. The Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO) is working with the Wainuiomata community on how to assist each other following a disaster. WREMO’s emergency management advisor, Mischa Hill says one of the community emergency hubs – the Wainuiomata Community Hall – is being opened to assist family, neighbours and the wider community in a major emergency. These hubs were formerly known as known as Civil Defence Centres). These hubs are opened by local residents after a disaster. Wainuiomata has eight, located in four schools - Fernlea, Konini, Pukeatua and Arakura Promary - as well as the Brookfield Scout Camp, and the Rimutaka Forest Park. “They are places to help each other out after

a disaster,” Mischa said. “It’s about building resilience.” The open day will outline how to get prepared for a disaster, and also how to help Wainuiomata after one, Mischa said. “As we saw in Christchurch, people want to help those in need. After a significant emergency, such as an earthquake, the community will naturally come together for company, to share their stories about their experience, find out information, offer assistance to those who need it, and look for assistance.” “If you are able to plan for a big event, you can plan for a smaller event.” There will also be a community barbeque following the two-hour presentation and discussion.  WHAT: Emergency preparedness open day followed by community BBQ WHERE: Wainuiomata Community Hall WHEN: Saturday April 8 10am

Stop. Hammer time for Wharehinga By Dave Crampton

Montaya Wharehinga is one of the country’s most promising hammer throwers. When she throws something, it usually goes a long way. On March 19 at the New Zealand Track and Field nationals in Hamilton, the Wainuiomata 22-year-old threw 51m to get a bronze medal in the senior women’s category, after recovering from surgery to her big toe. “I was trying to throw over 50m,” she said. “I was really happy with that - it’s a good feeling.” The hammer consists of a 4kg metal ball attached by a 1.2m steel wire to a grip. The sport’s name comes primarily from a drawing of King Henry VIII throwing a blacksmith’s sledgehammer. Rotational balance is essential

in the hammer throw. Montaya, who throws with the Sola Power Academy under coach Shaka Sola, came fourth at nationals last year, and actually threw further at 51.88m. Yet despite her recent operation, she was in the medals this year, even though her training was impacted. She couldn’t do sprints, squats – a key training aspect to the hammer throw – or weights to regain fitness. “It was hard – you’re very much limited to doing low-impact stuff,” she said. “ If I left (surgery) any longer it would have got worse.” She said it was a “good feeling” to get over 50m and is “very confident” she can throw further. She is looking to regain fitness and throw over 55m, or as close as she can to it, at the North Island champs in December and move into second place.

Her personal best is 51.98m. Montaya has come a long way from when she became the first Wainuiomata student to win a national secondary schools title in athletics, earning her the Wainuiomata High Sportswoman of the Year Award in 2013. As well as competing in the North

Island champs, she is hoping to compete at an Olympics, although that would require significant year-on-year improvements to meet the qualifying standards. The “long list” standard for the Commonwealth Games is 65.50m – nearly 10m further than the national title holder threw at Nationals.

After the retirement of Richie McCaw after the 2015 Rugby World Cup, No 8 Kieran Read was the logical man for the position but just who was next cab off the rank wasn’t so clear. Now it is crystal clear. Whitelock has been outstanding as the Crusaders captain this season. Not only has his work rate around the field been just as stellar as any other year but his actual ability to “captain” has been a major improvement. Captaincy runs deeper than simply your actions around the field; it’s about controlling the tempo of a game and ensuring the right decisions are made. Against the Western Force, Whitelock made every move a winner. He kicked for touch from penalties to use the dominant rolling maul, he chose scrums over shots at goals and

he was prepared to let his voice be heard to the referee. Notably he mentioned to the man with the whistle that he felt his players were not being allowed to regain their feet when fielding a grubber kick. That sort of thing wasn’t necessarily what you’d expect from the big lock who had previously been known as a follow my actions kind of player. If anything were to happen to Read, who has long suffered from concussion concerns, I would have no problem with Whitelock leading the men in black in any test match. If he has to wait until after the 2019 Japan World Cup, he’ll be 30-yearsold, so who knows if he poses enough of a long term option to be made captain or whether it would go to someone like Sam Cane who is three years younger than Whitelock. Either way, Sam’s the man now and a leader in black for the future.

Young BMXers aiming for National and Australian competitions Wainuiomata’s BMX riders are gearing up for Nationals in Te Awamutu at Easter, with riders as young as four and older than 50 slated to attend the event. There are at least 20 nationally ranked riders living in Wanuiomata, and all riders going to nationals - boys, girls, men and women - have competed and been ranked in at least four qualifying events, including a recent regional competition in Wainuiomata with more than 300 participating. All belong to the thriving local Waniuiomata BMX Club, with more than 20 club members living in Wainuiomata. Wainuiomata hosts the region’s best BMX track, upgraded since national were held there in 1981. Even children as young as two are members of the club, its spokesperson, Rod Badcock said. They are called “strider riders” as they sit astride their bikes because they don’t know how to pedal yet. When they do, they are off competing, just like their adult counterparts, who are sometimes their mum and dad. “They ride on exactly the same track and race in the fastest in the country in their age groups.” Wainuiomata now has the largest club in the Wellington region, Rod said.

“We have a good family atmosphere and we have Oceania, North Island, South Island, and national champions.” Wayne Furniss and his son Zack, 4, will both be competing on exactly the same track at Nationals, as will some 11-year-olds hoping to get into a National team – called the Mighty 11s - to compete in Australia. Jon Smoothy and Sam Hargreaves are hoping to get into that team, which will have a trial the day before Nationals. Nationals will be real family affair for some. “We have fathers and siblings, mothers and siblings,” Sam’s father Wayne, the club’s president, said. Sam has been riding and competing for five years. “I want to get into that [Australian] team, because then I get to go to Australia to race the Aussies,” he said. He`ll have to do his best - he has yet to make the final eight at a national event, but is confident he will this year. On Sunday March 26, club members took their bikes to the Hutt City Sports Expo at Avalon Park to promote the sport. “We got other people to ride our bikes and taught them some skills,“ Rod said.
