Hundreds of people turned out at the cenotaph on Queen Street to commemorate Anzac Day on Tuesday. The two services in Wainuiomata marked the 102nd year since the Anzacs originally landed at Gallipoli, more than five hours from the Turkish capital of Istanbul. Continued on page 2.

By Dave Crampton

Three years ago, Wainuiomata Historical Society president Gavin Wallace published a book on the 23 young men remembered on the cenotaph in Queen Street. All 23 were called to serve their country in World War I, which we remembered yesterday, on Anzac Day. The book notes that at the time in 1915, just 200 people lived in Wainuiomata, so those called to war represented around 10 percent of the population. Many families had to cope with their absence. But for some, that absence became permanent. Five of these men – Walter Evelyn Bulliman, Ernest

Frederick Evers-Swindell and brothers Robert Burrow, William Burrow, and John Burrow, never returned from World War I. All three brothers, who were born in Wellington, lost their lives in different years; William, the oldest, was the first brother to be called to serve, and was the first to die. He was killed in action in 1916. Robert was killed in action in 1917, and John died of malaria in 1918. Another brother, John Burrow Jnr, was also called in 1917 after the first two of his brothers had died, but did not serve in the war. Ernest Evers-Swindell was also killed in battle. One of his sons later became the grandfather to the Evers-Swindell

ick Evers-Swindell and brothers Robert Burrow, William Burrow, and John Burrow - never returned. Bart said he was encouraged that the crowds attending Anzac gatherings in Wainuiomata, particularly the 11am one were getting larger as more people come to remember the fallen. He noted that when the servicemen left between 1915-1917, there were only 200 living in Wainuiomata. Hutt Mayor Mayor Ray Wallace said our servicemen, both returned and otherwise, are a good example to the rest of us. “The examples of our service men and women – past and present – their duty to others, of uniting under a common cause, of selflessness, of moral courage and, sadly, of great sacrifice are high ideals that can guide each of us in times of great adversity and in our daily lives.” A further remembrance was held at the Wainuiomata Rugby clubrooms before yesterday afternoons rugby game.

The New Zealand flag was also raised to the bugle of “the Last Post” and “The Valley”. This preceded the main service at 11am after a procession from the BP service station to the War Memorial near the Community Centre.

Keen interest in annual plan Nearly 600 submissions on the Hutt City Council’s 20172018 Annual Plan have been received since the calling for submissions a month ago. “This plan is an important milestone in our journey of rejuvenation we started four years ago,” Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace said. “The plan proposes devel-

opment of new and upgrading existing cultural, recreation and events facilities, including the Wainuiomata Community Hub and Wainuiomata Sportsville – and average rates increases are to be kept low . We are proposing only a modest average 2.3 percent rates increase, possibly the

lowest in the Wellington region,” Mr Wallace said. The rates increase in the 2016-17 plan was 2.7 percent. The plan proposes development of new and upgrading existing cultural, recreation and events facilities, including the Wainuiomata Community Hub and Wainuiomata SportsVille.

Submissions close on Friday. The link for online submissions can be accessed at http://submissions.huttcity. govt.nz/consult24ols/  Those who wish to speak to councillors about their submission can do so on May 16 and 17.

Parents the last to know about special needs changes By Dave Crampton

Parents of Wainuiomata’s special needs children still have not been written to by IDEA Services informing them that Explore Services are to take over some special needs services formerly provided by IDEA. But IDEA Services has no idea why their letters weren’t sent, nearly two weeks after Explore was announced as the new provider. IDEA Services, or Intellectual Disability Empowerment in Action, is the operational arm of IHC that provides special needs services. Just before Easter, Associate Health Minister Nicky Wagner announced that Explore Services would take on the autism family education and therapy programmes. IDEA Services had cited lack of funding for pulling out of some service provision, such as respite care and holiday programmes. But IDEA Services never told all parents of the cuts, nor who was taking over the services, including Wainuiomata’s Rhonda Rivers, who found out all her information through the media during

Fire collapses house roof A fire that engulfed a house at 40 Sunny Grove last Thursday night will be investigated by specialists after the roof collapsed. Four appliances from around the region attended the scene and extinguished the fire around 9pm, two hours after the fire started. Police received reports of gunshots in the area, but it was the sound of windows exploding.

Chlorination of Hutt Water Supply The recent chlorination of Lower Hutt’s water supply is to continue while investigations into the source of recent positive E.coli test results are underway. Water remains safe to drink. A sample from a bore in the Waterloo wellfield returned a third positive E.coli result on April 12, from water sourced from the Waiwhetu Aquifer. This, plus recent water quality testing across the aquifer showing an increasing amount of bacteria activity, has led to the decision to keep chlorinating the Lower Hutt water supply network. About 70,000 customers in the Lower Hutt usually receive unchlorinated water supply (residents of Wainuiomata already receive chlorinated water).

It would’ve been nice to get an e-mail or letter instead of finding out through social media again.” Rhonda’s son Jesse, 11, has severe autism and Down’s Syndrome, but has continued at Fernlea School with a full-time teacher aide, Heather Forbes, after funding shortfalls closed its special needs unit. IDEA Services Communications Manager Gina Rogers was also at a loss to explain why

Wainuiomata families had not received their letters. She said a third update went to families just before Easter, but Rhonda didn’t get that letter either. Rhonda’s family gets respite care for 30 days a year, and a few weeks ago she had started a course called ‘Growing Up with Autism’ to assist her and her family with any behavioural concerns. The last she formally heard was that her course was cut. “It was a 20-week course and we got a letter to say that it was

Lower Hutt’s IDEA Services course co-ordinator, Amy Rainsford, also said she had no idea why those she provides services to did not receive any letters.

The Hutt City Council has installed 3200 new LED lamps to brighten up the region. It switched on the lights about10 days ago. About 1200 lights have been installed in regions such as Wainuiomata, Eastbourne and the Naenae roundabout, with the rest being installed in the central business district. The lights will operate throughout the year and are programmed to change colour during the Christmas period. City promotions manager Brad Monagahan said the lights cost about $50,000 to buy and install.

Care urged on Haywoods interchange Motorists have been asked to show caution at the new Haywoods $43m interchange as they are moved to the new layout. A lower speed limit is in place to allow motorists to get used to the layout and the on and off-ramps. They were moved to the new layout to allow further construction. The interchange is not yet complete, and will not be complete until July, due to wet weather delaying sealing and marking work. Cycleways will also be built on each side heading both south and north.

Susanne Ruthven.

under the age of 10, is a barrister by day, a former member of the Hutt Playcentre’s executive, and a former president of

the Maungaraki branch. As a barrister, she is a vocal advocate for human rights and freedoms, and also recognises that for those in Wainuiomata, many Hutt issues are heightened, particularly in education and housing, and specifically among those who are the ‘working poor’. “People are coming from other areas due to the lower cost of housing here in Wainuiomata. But the quality of housing is not high enough,” she said. Susanne has been active in many community organisations over the years. “I`m born and bred here – this is my place,” she said. “I

like to get involved in helping the community. I find it easy to understand people and help them where they want to go. It’s my hobby.” She wants to change that – and make her hobby her job. She said that addressing local social issues -as well as constitutional and legal issues she faces in her day job, is important. “We need to take the conversation away from lawyers and bring them to those on the street.” Susanne is ranked 24th on the Green party list announced in the weekend – ahead of sportswoman and broadcaster Hayley Holt.

Grigg nominated for prestigious award By Dave Crampton

Long-term Wainuiomata resident Mike Grigg has been selected as an official nominee for a prestigious international award. Mike, who has Aspergers Syndrome, has been nominated for the 2017 International Naturally Autistic People awards (INAP) which will be presented at the eighth annual ANCA Word Autism Festival in Canada in October. Mike is the sole New Zealand representative and has been nominated in the category of community achievement by Joanne Dacombe, who is also on the autism spectrum. Three awards are given. “Oh, I won’t win it,” Mike said. “The only award I`ve won was left in my letterbox – it’s

an informal one; the ‘Hutt City Stirrer’. I got it 15 years ago,” he said. But what if he did win it? “Oh, it would be good for activists and it would give a lot of pride to people in Wainuiomata,” Mike said. The INAP Awards celebrate the talents and abilities of autistic people and the work done by individuals and organisations supporting the autistic community. April is Autism awareness month. His selection letter thanked him for “sharing your passions and interests and we encourage you to continue to pursue your goals and dreams. As a representative for your country, you demonstrate the great diversity and abilities of autistic people across the world.” “We look forward to meet-

ing you in Vancouver BC Canada.” But Mike won’t be going. “I can’t afford it,” he said.

“I`d love to go.” Last year Mike attended the Autism New Zealand annual conference in Wellington, with funding from the Hutt City Council due to his advocacy work for those on the autism spectrum. Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace said he was proud of Mike’s achievement. “I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of the honour. Mike’s an outstanding citizen. He’s worked long and hard for Autism New Zealand and he will represent New Zealand with distinction,” Mayor Wallace said. Mike was pleased to be nominated. “It’s a celebration and a recognition of the work that I`ve done. It’s an acknowledgement that I am an activist fighting for autistics,” he said.

Labour’s Kiwi-Build could have a flow-on effect, if implemented By Dave Crampton

A Labour party announcement to build on vacant housing New Zealand land in the Hutt Valley could have a ripple effect in Wainuiomata if the policy is implemented, local politicians say. On April 12, Labour Party Leader Andrew Little visited a vacant Housing NZ section in Epuni and announced that Labour will build a mix of 400 state houses and affordable KiwiBuild homes in the Hutt Valley in its first term in government, should it be elected on September 23. Housing will be a mix of two-to three bedroom homes, and one bedroom units, costing between $200,000 to $350,000. Housing in the Hutt Valley is in crisis with many Kiwi families being priced out of both home ownership and the rental market. House prices have soared 25 per cent in the past year, and rents are up 9 per cent.” Mr Little said. Wainuiomata’s politicians welcomed the news, and hoped that such a move would curb rising process in the area. “I think it will have a flow-on effect and Wainuiomata prices may stabilise,” Hutt City Mayor Ray Wallace said. Out-going Hutt South MP Trevor Mallard, who was raised

in a two-bedroom house in Wainuiomata, agreed. “The flow-on effect is likely to happen- this is like the houses that were started in Wainuiomata,” he said. Mr Little and Mr Mallard were joined by Housing Minister Phil Twyford, Rimutaka MP Chris Hipkins and Hutt South candidate Virginia Andersen for the announcement, just under a week after the St David’s church housing protest in Naenae, 2km down the road. In February, Mr Little said 36 Housing NZ properties were vacant in the Hutt for over a year, with some ready to le – but now 266 Hutt families are on a waiting list for a state house. “I know of one family that has been living in a garage for six months.” Wainuiomata ward councillor Josh Briggs also welcomed the announcement, saying that the homes will be for those who do not have the opportunity to qualify for social housing, and those who could not afford current housing prices. He also said the announcement will have an impact on house prices in Wainuiomata. As well as building on housing New Zealand land, Labour said it would also look at opportunities to build in new developments around the Hutt, including in Wainuiomata.

Grey Power events for senior citizens Grey Power has several events coming up in the winter months with the first one today at the Life City Church at 1.30pm. The Citizens Advice Bureau will be there to speak, and Hutt city Mayor Ray Wallace and Deputy Mayor David Bassett have been invited to answer any questions on the 2017/2018 annual plan.

Make a meal in May for Kaibosh Supporting a food rescue organisation next month is as simple as having a meal with friends. Kaibosh kicks off Make a Meal in May next week. Make a Meal in May is Kaibosh’s annual fundraising appeal. The idea is simple – supporters make a meal with friends at home or work and instead of eating out with them at a restaurant, they donate what they would

have spent on a restaurant or café meal to Kaibosh. Kaibosh currently rescues more than 15 tonnes of quality surplus food each month, providing this to 50 community groups supporting people in need in the Hutt Valley and in Wellington. They provide this service at no cost to food donors or community groups. “Make a Meal in May is a simple way for people to support Kaibosh’s work

– for every dollar raised we can give a meal’s worth of food to someone in need,” Kaibosh General Manager Matt Dagger said. Kaibosh gets the surplus food from supermarkets and other sources and redistributes it. As well as Wainuiomata, food goes to other areas of the Hutt Valley. Last year the meal equivalents handed

out by Kaibosh in the Hutt Valley went over the 100,000 mark. Make a Meal in May can be adapted to suit individual supporters, workplaces or schools, with meals ranging from shared morning teas to elaborate dinners or relaxed weekend brunches. “Kaibosh has recently provided our two millionth meal, and now our supporters can help us to reach the next million.

A word from

Mayor Ray Wallace Last month’s news of a large meth bust in Tawa set me thinking about the things that define a community. On reading the Dominion Post’s front page lead, many readers might be encouraged to believe Tawa is a nest of criminals with little else to recommend it. Is that fair? Of course not, but media “branding” of a suburb, with its focus on the negative rather than the positive, is easy to do and difficult to undo. I know, for example, Tawa is a great place to live with a strong sense of community. Likewise, the same can be said of Wainuiomata. In recent times, there have been some legitimate community concerns about safety and security. This is not unique to Wainuiomata and I know the community is actively addressing these issues. But let’s not forget the great things about Wainuiomata and its strong sense of community demonstrated in so many ways from Sport Wainuiomata’s work with disabled athletes to Wainuiomata Marae’s work with youth. These are the things that define Wainuiomata. Wainuiomata is more than a collection of houses. It is a supportive and caring community. On 25 April every year, thousands of New Zealanders pause to reflect on the characteristics of what we describe as the Anzac Spirit. Probably, there are as many definitions of the Anzac Spirit as there were ANZACs, but when I think of the Anzac Spirit I think of volunteers – men and women who were prepared to make huge sacrifices (many tragically making the ultimate sacrifice)

unstintingly supporting their mates. Don’t ever let people tell you the Anzac Spirit is dead. It lives on in the thousands of individuals and groups who give up their time voluntarily to support their communities and make them a better place in which to live. Wainuiomata has got more than its fair share of these local heroes. The Council has its own awards – The Civic Awards and Safe City Awards – and combine on a regional basis with the Wellington Airport Community Awards to recognise our local heroes. If there’s someone you know in your community you think deserves special recognition for their volunteer community service, go to our website www.huttcity.govt.nz and put in a nomination. Finally, I’m sure the community will join with me in acknowledging a milestone for two local heroes. Wainuiomata’s first and only Mayor, Harry Martin, and his wife, Irene, recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. What a fantastic achievement. Until next time, take care

The major minors children’s choir is looking forward to its weekend performance. By Dave Crampton

The award-winning Major Minors Children’s Choir is performing its second concert this year at the Holy Trinity Church in Wainuiomata on Sunday. The choir was formed in 2012 in Upper Hutt, and is run voluntarily by qualified musicians, musical director Joanne Roelofs, and pianist Karen Boyce. “After having children from Wainuiomata attend the choir over the past five years we

decided it was time to visit,” Joanne said. The choir, for children aged four and over, won the arts and culture category at the Wellington Regional Airport Community Awards in 2014. It celebrates its fifth anniversary next month and is repeating their popular and well received programme entitled ‘All Star’ which was first performed in Upper Hutt earlier this month. The programme includes a variety of songs ranging from popular, songs from films and more traditional choral music.

With a growing group of nearly 30 members, the choir is celebrating their fifth year of singing after forming in 2012. In addition to the Major Minors, their extension choir, ‘The Harmonic Minors’ will also be performing. “This extension group allows the older children some more challenging work to really develop their singing,” Joanne said.  The concert is at 2.30pm on Sunday April 30 at Holy Trinity Church, Wainuiomata Road. Entry by koha.

Who is one person, dead or alive, you would love to have a meal with? My Dad – he passed away 31 years ago. Who is your best friend, and why? My mate Hayden from my school days. We went through a lot of bad times together and we‘ve always been mates. If you could be somebody for day, who would it be? Probably the Prime Minister - to change all of the crap that is going on… What is the best thing in your life right now? Being a Maori Warden. Its giving back to people in the community. What would you change about the world? I’d wipe out all nuclear weapons and things like that. We should share the love, not the hate, a bit like Bob Marley.

What would your superpower be and why? Probably mind control, telepathy – to change the mind of all those warmongers. What would Wainuiomata News readers be shocked to know about you? First, they`d be shocked to see me in the paper – but I`m part Irish. What meal do you never get sick of eating? Puha – with all the grease!

BMXers to display tricks By Dave Crampton

The Gary Delany Photography Wainuiomata BMX trophy meet is on this weekend at Hugh Sinclair Park, with a special ‘Wainui trick’ display competition set to be a feature of the event. The trick competition, to be held on the straight in front of the judges, is for those aged 11 and over, but the trophy meet is open to riders of all ages. This includes pre-schoolers – called strider riders - who haven’t yet mastered pedalling, and sprockets - those who are in the first years of school. The meet is named after photographer Gary Delaney, a club member since 2007, who is sponsoring the trophies. All runners-up will get a trophy, Wainuiomata BMX club spokesperson Rod Badcock said. The trick competition is a novelty event, introduced this year and is an open event. “They`ll be high in the air,” Rod said. “The best trick wins a trophy.” Rod said the meet is a good opportunity for those who didn’t attend Nationals in Te Awamutu at Easter to get back on their bikes. The club sent the Wellington region’s biggest team – 28 riders – to Nationals, and as

a group did better than last year, with many top eight placings, despite the flooding. “We were competing in the middle of Cyclone Debbie,” Rod said. “We had fields that were no longer fields - kids were wakeboarding.” Young rider Zoe Hilton, despite crashing three times, came a credible eigth at her first national event, Natasha Hargreaves was placed third and senior rider Dave Waistell was eight and Cohen Moore third. Even the pre-schoolers got on with it. “They just box on and go for it - I thought they did really well,” Rod said. Zac Furniss, who is only four, came sixth in the country in the 5U event. There were as many as 40 riders in some categories. Many will be riding this weekend. All club licenced riders are eligible for the weekend’s trophy meet and all strider riders have free entry; other entries are $5.00. Entries close on Friday and can be emailed to entries@ WainuiomataBMX.com, or entered online at https:// nzbmx.club/events.

New juniors compete well in Shaw Baton relay

Captions By Dave Crampton

Local athletes kicked off the winter season at the Shaw Baton relay at Battle Hill on Saturday, with a record number of teams from the local club entering the event. The Shaw Baton relay in Pauatahanui traditionally marks the start of the Wellington cross-country season, and is run over 2km laps. It was clear and

sunny Saturday, with the slight northerly, but soft underfoot due to the rain earlier this month. Juniors, in particular, were a highlight. Some were in their first crosscountry event in their first season. The U18 boys team was one of the youngest teams in its division - with three aged under 15 - and came fifth. Wainuiomata Harriers and Athletic club spokes-

person Amanda Brew was pleased with the young athletes. “We`ve got some good up-and -coming runners, and two of the U18 runners are new this year,” she said. One, Joel Carman, got the team to a cracking start with a 6 minute 40 second lap, with 13-yearold Cameron Forsyth just a minute slower in his lap. Joel’s brother Jesse was

also in the team and their dad, Alan was in the senior team. The U13 girls also did well for sixth, Amanda said. Most of these in the junior teams will also be young enough to be in the same grade next year. The senior men’s division was taken out by Wellington Harriers and Athletics Club, after rivals Scottish Harriers had won the event for the previous 21 years.

Sports talk

Boxing gives itself another black eye This is why it’s hard to take boxing seriously. The world title fight between Hughie Fury and Kiwi champ Joseph Parker was meant to be at Auckland’s Vector Arena in two weeks but now appears off. The Fury camp is claiming an injury while the handlers of Parker, Duco Events, are not buying that at all. It’s another black eye for a sport which has given itself so many uppercuts to the jaw of credibility over the years. Duco now look likely to try to hunt out a top 15 ranked opponent willing to take a fight on super short notice enticed by the carrot of being a shock world champion. It’s bad news for Parker’s camp and the punters who have purchased tickets to see a genuine title fight between the Kiwi champ and a fighter hungry and well prepared for the opportunity. Parker has said this was likely to be the last world title fight in New Zealand as he predictably and quite rightly looks to chase bigger purses overseas. Having said that, a big name fight doesn’t always deliver. Mayweather/Pacquiao anyone? Maybe this will be better than the original scheduled bout. Anything is possible.
