Continued from page 1. “We have been working so hard to make an impact in this industry and are up against some incredible breweries. “It feels pretty good to get this kind of recognition,” co-founder Evarn Flaunty said. “It can be quite intimidating being in the same market as so many large companies with so much backing and experience,” co-founder Warren Drahota

added. “We really appreciate the feedback this has provided and it tells us we are on the right road to hopefully seeing our dreams of someday being an influencer in the industry come true. “The better we do, the more we can share our passion for good beer with the community.” Warren said following the wins the group planned to

expand their market and find bigger premises. “We’re still the underdogs of brewers at the moment. “We’re still trying to get our beer out there. “Our Brooklyn brewery is really just a pilot brewery. “We’re continuing to expand by using different breweries. The end goal is to get our own premises,” he said. He said the group was appre-

ciative of the different bars in Wellington stocking their beers and looked forward to where their win might take them. “We’ve got 80 accounts around Wellington. We’re in most of the craft beer bars but there’s a couple we haven’t been in. We appreciate all them. “Salty Pigeon is our local in Brooklyn. All of us used to work in Newtown so the Newtown bars are our locals too,” he said.

Street artist creates interactive artwork for Ronald McDonald House Renowned street artist, D’Side, will be creating an interactive piece of art to donate to Ronald McDonald House in Newtown. The work would be showcased at the 2017 New Zealand Art Show this weekend. Over the course of the show, attendees would be invited to add their mark to Dside’s original artwork, bringing the piece to life. This is the first time art show attendees were given the opportunity to actively contribute to an artist’s artwork at the show. After the show, the artwork would then be gifted to Ronald McDonald House and installed in the children’s playground to add further colour and activity to both the artwork and the play area. “The work I produce on the streets is about giving to and collaborating with the public and their environment,” D’Side said. “This project is a direct approach to the collaborative aspect by inviting the public colour it in.”

Families staying in Ronald McDonald House would also be able to add their own mark to the artwork and when all the surfaces have been coloured in, staff would be able to erase the colourings, creating a fresh canvas and

perpetuating the collaboration. Wayne Howett, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities NZ, was excited by this project as it offered something fun for families to do while on their medical

journeys with their loved ones. “This proposed interactive art piece is perfect for our families as it gives them the chance to have some fun together doing something a little bit different,” Wayne said.

Writers win big at book awards By Emma McAuliffe

Writers won big at the Ockham New Zealand Book Awards in Auckland last week. Newtown poet Hera Lindsay Bird and Brooklyn writers Ashleigh Young and Andrew Johnston all came away with top prizes. Hera won Best First Poetry for her debut book Hera Lindsay Bird, Ashleigh won Best NonFiction for her book of essays Can You Tolerate This? and Andrew won Best Poetry for Fits and Starts. Hera also won the Sarah Broom Poetry Prize last week. She was surprised and pleased with the wins. “[The Sarah Broom Poetry prize] is a really amazing poetry competition set up by Sarah Broom’s family. “It’s great getting an award with such a sense of community around it,” she said. Hera was so surprised she did not prepare an acceptance speech. “I didn’t prepare one because I didn’t think I would win.

“I didn’t have any idea , there’s nothing you can do.” Ashleigh, who won the Windham-Campbell Prize earlier this year for Can You Tolerate This?, was also surprised by her win. “It’s amazing. We weren’t expecting to do as well as we did. “I had not been expecting to win at all. “There are usually a couple of books shortlisted in the nonfiction section that are a little more leftfield but they never win. It’s really affirming to be awarded,” she said. “I’m hoping to use some of the prize money to take some time off work next year and just write uninterrupted. “I’ve been so busy going to festivals I’d like to go somewhere with my partner and take on a little writing residency,” Hera said of her win. “I want to finish work on my new poetry book. “I also really want to read. It’s really wonderful to hear writers but I just want to be able to read without feeling the pressure to comment on everything,” Ashleigh added.

inbrief news Mayor supports concert arena plan Wellington’s plans for a major regional concert arena are moving ahead, following a unanimous vote of the region’s mayors, said Wellington Regional Strategy Committee chair Justin Lester. Wellington Mayor Justin Lester said the need for such an arena was obvious.” Wellington might not have been able to afford a major new arena on our own, but with financial support from the rest of the region we’re much more likely to get this across the line. Wellington is the capital of culture in this country, but we hear frequently that a lack of a good-sized concert arena means we are missing out on major acts which are going elsewhere instead,” he said.

important to care for others,” she said. As part of the Miramar morning tea children had their faces painted, played with pink playdough and ate fairy bread in the shape of a pink ribbon. “It helps children be aware of symbols. Every symbol brings awareness,” Marion explained. Pink Ribbon Breakfast Month is an annual campaign held in May by the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation. Last year New Zealanders held over 3200 Pink Ribbon Breakfasts attended by 90,000 people and raised $1.7 million for the cause. Proceeds from this year’s Pink Ribbon Breakfasts would go towards breast cancer research, with a focus on support for clinical trials, immunotherapies, preventing the spread of cancer, improving clinical practice for better patient outcomes and treatments for advanced breast cancer.

Preschoolers had the chance to learn about the importance of charity last week with special events held at their playgroups. The Porse playgroup in Miramar hosted a Pink Ribbon Breakfast Morning Tea to raise money and awareness for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation last Friday. Another was held at the Porse Brooklyn group earlier in the week. Porse programme tutor Marion Taylor said the morning tea play date was an opportunity for the children to learn to care for others. “The main driver for this is for children to have an awareness of charity and have a possibility of being charitable. “It highlights for the children that there are some people in our community that do have hard times and it’s really

Graduates ready to perform Graduating actors at Toi Whakaari in Newtown are busy preparing for not one, but two, productions to be performed this month. Their term two productions are The Antigone Sound and Eli Kent’s Black Confetti by arrangement with Playmarket. The plays would feature graduating third year actors collaborating with staff, former staff and graduates of the school. The creative and production teams bring together skilled practitioners alongside current students. Black Confetti by Eli Kent was originally commissioned for Auckland Theatre Company and premiered at the Herald

Theatre in 2012. In this version, the piece has been expanded with additional material added by Leo Gene Peters, Leon Wadham and the cast. Black Confetti focuses on the question of youth and consequences. Situated within Wellington’s often alienating party scene, where hipsters desperately yearn for significance, trying to make meaning out of their disaffected world, the play celebrates the ridiculous lengths we go to in order to belong, to be cool, to be loved or even admired. The show would be directed by Toi Whakaari graduate, Leo Gene Peters, the award-winning

director of the company A Slightly Isolated Dog. Most recently he directed Don Juan which toured extensively in New Zealand. His other works include Jekyll & Hyde, Death and the Dreamlife of Elephants and Settling. The production would be designed by Rose Kirkup, also a graduate of Toi Whakaari, the artistic director of Everybody Cool Lives Here, a theatre company producing work that empowers the creative voices of marginalized people in Aotearoa. She is passionate about shaping our stories into challenging yet accessible shows for all. “It’s so nice to be around the

energy of the young people, their lust for life, and putting that into a playful way of making performance. Leon, Leo, Eli and I were all students in Wellington at a similar time and while we’ve been making this show – looking through the filter of the students in the rehearsals – I’ve felt quite nostalgic for those fun student days,” Rose said.  Black Confetti runs from Saturday, June 10 until Wednesday, June 21 at Toi Whakaari in Newtown.

Roseneath School students are celebrating their new school hall this week with a special school production. The school hall has been earthquake strengthened and fitted out with a new kitchen for students to learn cooking in, as well as new sound equipment and windows. The school’s production, which opened on Tuesday, has been in rehearsal since the beginning of the term. Its main theme was science as it

had been the school’s focus this term and was aptly titled Lost in Science. The main body of the play was written by year eight student Aston Varga, who played an angry boy in the production. “A lot of it was going between classes and finding out what other classes in the school were doing. “Since our focus was science we went to each class and found out what they thought could be in a science museum,” he explained. The students then decided on

whether they wanted “stereotypical characters” and who would want to play who. Aston said he would like to write more productions in the future, with more jokes included. “I like puns but not the science ones,” he said. School principal Luana Carroll said she was very pleased with the work the students had put into the production. “We like the students to be able to take ownership of the hall and this was a way they could do it,” she said.

Science student off to Sydney

Council pleased with industry wins By Callum Roberts, MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Malin Walpola will be headed to Sydney in July. PHOTO: Supplied. By Emma McAuliffe

A Wellington College student is one of six in New Zealand chosen by Royal Society Te Aparangi to attend the Harry Messels International Science School in Sydney. Year 13 student Malin Walpola was chosen to attend the school, which takes place every two years. The school is a two-week residential science camp which would include lectures by renowned scientists, hands-on scientific workshops and an

active social programme. Joining the six New Zealand students would be another 140 students selected to attend from Australia, China, Japan, Singapore, Thailand and the United Kingdom. Malin said he was very excited to find out he would be attending the school. “When I found out I got into the science school trip I was surprised and amazed. “I’m not really a science whizz but I like science. I was always interested in finding out how things worked,” he said.

Malin said he had a passion for the subject and hoped he would continue once he left school. “I’d like to do something sciencey, maybe medicine or engineering. I’m leaning more towards engineering because I like learning how you can apply it to different things,” he said. He has previously attended the Rotary National Science and Technology Forum, which he described as “probably the best two weeks of my life”. Malin would be leaving for Sydney to take part in the forum in July.

Wellington City Council won two awards for their refurbishment of a Kilbirnie social housing complex. Kotuku apa r tments on Kemp Road were extensively upgraded inside and out as part of council’s $400 million partnership with central government. The New Zealand Institute of Architects presented council with a housing award for multi units last month. Council also received a Resene colour award, which recognises outstanding use of colour in design. Deputy Mayor Paul Eagle said the 20-year partnership with central government, which was signed in 2007, allowed council to re-examine social housing built in the 1950s and 1960s and bring them up to today’s standards. The units were now properly insulated, helping to keep costs low for residents. Included in the redesign were shared areas for residents to come together, including a community room, children’s play area and

Holistic care provided at Kilmarnock Heights Home

shared garden for growing herbs and vegetables. “If you look inside the units, they’ve got warm curtains, they’ve got carpet, there’s double glazed windows,” Mr Eagle said. “I’ve often joked and said, boy some of these units are better than my house, in fact they are.” Mr Eagle said to have the refurbishment recognised by NZIA and Resene was great, but being able to take good care of residents was key. “It’s our most vulnerable and needy people living in high quality housing. “That’s important for the city. “Some of these people who live in these homes, they need help. Some people feel really isolated,” Mr Eagle said. “Before, it was just a concrete building. Now there’s some sense that it’s a real community.” One resident, who did not wish to be named, said he was happy in his new home. He had moved from Newtown and said that Kotuku was warm and dry but most importantly for him, quake safe. “I really like it here.”

Kilmarnock Height Home resident Bob McCallum and Kilmarnock Heights Home’s new chaplain, Rev. Leanne Munro.

Kilmarnock Heights Home’s new chaplain, Reverend Leanne Munro, says chaplaincy isn’t just about religion; it’s about helping people to discover what gives their lives meaning and finding contentment. All Enliven homes, including Kilmarnock Heights Home in Berhampore, have chaplains that visit regularly to support residents with their spiritual and religious needs. Leanne, who previously worked as a chaplain at Enliven’s Cashmere Home and Cashmere Heights Home in Johnsonville, as well as Enliven’s Longview Home in Tawa, says this differs for each person, which is what makes her role so varied. “Whatever your background, religion, spiritual or cultural beliefs are, in an Enliven home it’s respected,” Leanne explains. “What I might be for one person will be different for another. My role is to find out what’s important to a person, what their philosophy of life is, what makes them happy and what gives them joy, so that I can make sure they have access to those things.” Leanne says chaplaincy isn’t just about religion. “Chaplaincy is part of the holistic care Enliven provides. I’m part of the care team and my role is about making sure their spiritual needs are catered to,” says Leanne.

She says part of her role is to support people to find inner peace. “A lot of my role is listening - I offer a listening ear. Often people have unresolved feelings or worries from the past, and it’s important that our later years in life aren’t spent worrying about things that we can’t control,” Leanne explains. “If that’s the case, hopefully I can be part of the process as they work through any unresolved concerns they may have.” Leanne has only worked at Kilmarnock Heights Home for a month but says she is enjoying getting to know the residents as well as working with Enliven’s unique model of care - the Eden Alternative. “The Eden Alternative respects every person’s individuality,” says Leanne. “It’s a really positive and holistic approach that recognises that every person is different, and they are cared for accordingly.” Kilmarnock Heights Home is operated by Enliven, part of the not-for-profit organisation Presbyterian Support Central. Presbyterian Support (Enliven) was recently voted New Zealand’s Most Trusted Aged  To find out more about Enliven’s Kilmarnock Heights home, located at 20 Morton Street in Berhampore, call the home directly on 04 380 2034 or visit PBA

Sweet tunes from pop band ‘Honey’ By Julia Czerwonatis

Four-piece pop group Honey brings sweet new tunes into the Wellington music scene. Founded in March Honey released their first single Can’t be on the Record earlier this month, together with a music video. Lead vocalist and Hataitai resident Alexander Reid said it all started with him and his friend Matt Dixon jamming at home together. “We were trying new songs, some of which I had written,” Alexander explained. “And then it went from there.” His wife Lydia Reid and Andy Hockey joined the crew shortly after and together they created Honey. Alexander described their music style as “dirty pop with an 80s nostalgic feel to it”. “It’s the sort of music that

makes me feel good inside,” Alexander said. “It’s easy to get into and great to dance to.” Alexander said he and his wife are writing most of the songs. “We rent a small studio for recording: it’s tiny dedicated space but that’s you want, really.” Honey had their first gig on CubaDupa at the end of March, “which went quite well.” “I want to see how far we can take it with Honey,” Alexander said. “Most of us have other occupations next to our music but we are all loving making music together.” Alexander said Wellington had a good music industry and that there many gig opportunities for the band. Honey would release another track next month. Can’t be on the Record is available on Soundcloud and Youtube.

Abigail Graham, Roseneath School

Aston Varga, Roseneath School

Rosa Donaldson, Roseneath School

Benji Candaland, Roseneath School

Olivia Manthel-Brown, Roseneath School

“I played the tour guide in the science production. I like the new hall.”

“I wrote the play and I played the angry guy. I like the new kitchen in the hall”

“I was a mummy.”

“I was one of the Wright brothers.”

“I was a mad scientist. The new sound system in the hall is good.”

Gatsby Cohen, Roseneath School “I was another mad scientist. The new hall looks heaps better.”

Credit to those who take responsibility Dear Editor, Full credit to Martin Matthews, the A.G. for stepping down after the irregularities and possibly spurious redundancies in the Ministry were apparently allowed, condoned or seen as smart management during his previous job. This possibly explains the

reason for the exorbitant salaries in the top echelons of business. They really face responsibility and their cessation of income must be hard. I am sure the general public of NZ would support him not having to face a stand-down period before he gets unemploy-

ment of job seeker support, foregoing his wages , salary and bonuses during the investigation. Possibly the committee who appointed should face some censure for insufficient ‘due dilligence’. Paul Franken Strathmore Park

The Island Bay Cycle Elephant Dear Editor, I do agree with Heather Bevan and Ms Swift, that it is vital that Island Bay people have their say on the present 6 proposals for the Island Bay Cycle Bay (one including simple putting it back to how it was - yippie). My view is also that people living in other suburbs also should take a strong interest in their own suburb as

well as the city as a whole. Thus I recall working with a group of old concerned citizens in 2010 to fight city hall when the proposal by Celia Wade-Brown (then the local councillor) and Iona Pannett to put a ‘wet hostel’ in Riddell St, Island Bay. Wonderful concept, just not in that residential street, thanks! The citizens won. Alas, because of

lack of community action Island Bay lost their bank, post office, best fish and chip shop, petrol station, and certainly to access any public facility have to exit the valley. So here is now the opportunity for ‘Love the Bay’ to step ahead on resolution of the cycleway, or will it be spoilt for all of us. ($1.2 million in construction = $2 million in

consultation?). Mind you, the new Johnsonville Library was approved at $16m and now blown out to $23m. The sports centre in Kilbirne was planned at $34m and went to $47m on completion. Wish my bank account could be as flexible as these increases. Rose Wu Kilbirnie

Return to original

Stop with the boring cycleway

Dear Editor, The best option for the Island Bay Cycleway is to return it to it’s original form ie car parks next to kerb and cycleway marked next as it used to be. Christy and Ann Ryan

Dear Editor, If the WCC hasn’t got the message about the Island Bay cycleway by now they never will. How many more workshops, public meetings and opinion polls do we have to read about? We live in a democracy and as the majority of

Not what we meant Dear Editor, We note H Westfolds letter (May 25) regarding our objection to the teaching of French at Newtown Primary State school. We did not imply that French shouldn’t be taught at College, nor did we say French is an unimportant language. (We both have and do use it.). This Mr Westfold we notice, always jumps ahead in his writings, then always quotes some mystical irrelevant matter centuries ago. Now he even implies that only civilised countries are English or French, and even bangs away at many other countries. All of the countries he refers to such as Russian, Chinese, Spanish etc, are countries made from many centuries of culture and language, and not the western white Christian world he laments over. Our point was only that the Principal of Newtown Primary school should give us clarification as why should a French Immersion unit be started there, when the ethnic diversity of the school must surely not need it. I do hope that this Mr Westfold would present logic and reason, and not attack writers as he is prone to. Tim Dalman, Te Aro

Find the facts first Dear Editor, I have been reading the letters re setting up a bilingual French class at Newtown School with amusement and much frustration. People seem to have opinions without fi rst fi nding out the facts. They are not hard to fi nd on the internet or by ringing the principal or Alliance Francaise who made the application. It is now a moot point as, after much work the board of trustees has decided not to host this. However, I want to point out that the objective of a bi-lingual class is to support the children in

their learning so they can read, write and speak fluently in both languages and to develop their cultural knowledge. The children who would have attended this unit would come from French families and many would already speak in both languages. New Zealand is one of the few countries in the world where most of its population speaks only one language. Learning a language is not just about that language but has many more advantages.

Matariki month ahead By Emma McAuliffe

Wellington’s arts scene will be celebrating Matariki this month with special displays and events for families. Matariki is celebrated when the star cluster known as Pleiades (Matariki to Maori) rises in the sky during winter. It marks the end of the calendar year and signals the beginning of the new year according to the Maramataka, or the traditional Maori lunar calendar. Te Papa would be celebrating Matariki from June 16 to 25 with a special event, Matariki Rising. Creative director of Matariki Rising, Charles Royal, said the overall theme of Matariki festivals both historically and today was renewal. “Matariki marks the passing of the old

year and the beginning of the New Year, according to the Maori lunar calendar. “It’s a celebration that is unique to New Zealand and provides an opportunity to come together, to acknowledge who we are, to express love for these islands that we call our home and foster quality relationships between each other and the natural world,” he said. The 10-day-long celebration would begin on Friday, June 16 at 7pm with a celebration and ritual for all ages on the Wellington waterfront. The ritual would be centred around a fire where storytelling would take place, including the tale of the creation of the world according to Maori tradition and the story of Tane who adorned the heavens with stars. Food would be cooked upon the fire

and its aroma will be used to farewell and release loved ones who passed in the previous year. Matariki Rising would close with the Kaumatua Kapa Haka performance on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25. The event would see more than 400 Kaumatua from Invercargill to Whangarei participating in a mass Kapa Haka event in Soundings Theatre at Te Papa. Meanwhile at Capital E children would be invited to listen to special stories and learn to weave throughout Matariki. On Saturday, June 10 children would be able to take part in Raranga Whetu, which would give them the chance to learn to weave their own Matariki Stars. A special story time would take place on Saturday, June 24 for children to listen to Maori myths and learn a waiata.

Student films wow The finalists in Capital E’s Roxy5 Short Film Competition gathered at Roxy Cinema in Miramar last Wednesday to show off their films. The event was the finale for the Roxy5 competition which saw two schools walk away with top prizes and the opportunity to remake their films. This year the winning films

were Shelter from Wellington High School and Ranginui and Papatūānuku from Otaki College. The judging panel were impressed by Shelter’s themes and creative storytelling, delivering complex drama as it details a group of friends connected by their own issues at home.

Parking congestion along Lyall Parade continues to worsen and residents are calling on the council for change. PHOTO: Rosa Woods. By Rosa Woods, MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

A Lyall Bay resident’s plea to fix chronic parking congestion along the beachfront seems likely to fall on deaf ears. Lyall Parade resident Rose Johns said the street’s limited parking had become a serious issue only Wellington City Council could solve. “I’ve put in a request to get resident’s parking and to get yellow lines over the driveway” but the council would not listen, she said. Rose said she and her family regularly left town to avoid the parking congestion. “We have to leave the place, we go away on the weekends,” she said. Tanya Pearce said she also lived on Lyall Parade and did not have any off street parking. “In the weekend it can be a nightmare to get a park anywhere

near my house. “A few resident’s parks on the street side would be awesome,” she said. Other residents from the area were less concerned by the parking along Lyall Parade. Rongotai woman Felicity Findlay did not believe any changes needed to be made. “I think the parking is fine, I don’t want to have to pay for parking in the area I have lived my whole life,” she said. Eva Karam from Southgate said free suburban parking was one of the beauties of living in New Zealand. It was “okay to make some resident’s parking spots on one side, but the rest should be free”, she said. Eastern Ward Councillor Simon Marsh said parking congestion along Lyall Parade would be a difficult issue to remedy, as “current parking in most of the



area is unregulated”. Mr Marsh said he had heard some local discussion about the possibility of implementing resident’s parking. However, parking congestion had “not been a hot topic at the recent residents association meetings”. “The Lyall Parade is heavily used as a recreation area and with the improvements happening in the area will become even more attractive for people to visit,” he said. Mr Marsh encouraged residents who were concerned to “run a petition to bring to council” so council officers could respond to the matter formally. Council would need “a strong case to pursue any changes”, he said. At this stage, the council have not planned to make any changes to the parking along Lyall Parade.

Jane Barber may be new on the Hataitai block but she has a long history in Wellington. She started City Osteopaths 26 years ago then left New Zealand for London and Sydney... now back for 10 years with her family, she is branching out from her sole practice in Miramar. “I was too busy and I didn’t like not being able to fit people in. “I’m so thrilled with my associates Agustin Mari-Mabley and Ciara Broderick, I am so lucky to have found 2 excellent Osteopaths full of enthusiasm and knowledge ...the local community is realising this too, already referring their friends and family even though we’ve only been open 6 weeks.” Jane said she was so glad she chose Hataitai as the place for the clinic. “It is so convenient because it’s close to the city yet easy to

get to. For a lot of people it’s on the way to or from work. And the parking is great!” She said people often did not realise the range of problems treated by osteopaths. “Not just back and neck ache but headaches, sinus congestion, constipation, period pain, asthma to name a few.

World Food Fair dispels the winter blues

By Sadie Coe

Berhampore locals had a good excuse to skip cooking tea last Friday evening at Berhampore School’s World Food Fair. The annual fundraiser is organised by Berhampore School’s parent group, the Whanau Army, and benefits from the diversity of the school community with dishes from around the globe on offer. This year’s options included food

from countries such as India, Italy, and Ireland, and Somalia, Syria, and Samoa, to name but a few. Parents, pupils, and staff pulled together to lay out the hall, cook and serve food, and tidy away at the end. The space was humming as people gathered at the colourful tables to eat their evening meal together, and many chose to take away some extra food for later. Money raised will be put towards learning resources and school trips.

City mission launches winter appeal Locals are encouraged to think of the Wellington City Mission when they grab their morning coffee this week. The mission is asking people to get behind their Winter Appeal and help ensure people across our region can be healthy and warm this winter. Until Sunday, June 4 locals will have the chance to add a 50 cent donation to their coffee purchase at participating cafes across Wellington, including in Kilbirnie and Newtown. Every 50 cent donation gives locals an entry into a special prize draw to win a coffee every day for a year. The initiative was officially launched at the Wellington Food Show at the weekend. The mission would also have a Brown Paper Bag Collection running next week and will be collecting at Hurricanes vs Chiefs game at Westpac Stadium on Friday, June 9. The donations received during The Winter

Appeal will ensure the Wellington City Mission could continue working with people who are struggling, especially during the cold winter months. They provide families and individuals with food parcels and hot meals, while continuing to offer year-round services such as budgeting advice and in-home social work. “However you choose to get involved, your support will mean so much to the hundreds of families and individuals who will receive help from our programmes and services,” Wellington City Mission Chief executive officer, Michelle Branney said. Last year The Mission provided close to 2,800 food parcels from our Foodbank and over 29,000 meal servings at their Drop-in Centre.  For more information about The Winter Appeal visit

Penguin found dead on waterfront Dog owners are being warned to keep their furry friends on a leash after the death of a little blue penguin last Thursday. The bird was found on the Wellington Waterfront. Wellington City Councillor and Natural Environment portfolio holder, Peter Gilberd, said the incident was “sad and unfortunate”. “It’s a stark reminder of the need to keep all dogs on a leash, especially in our coastal areas. “A lot of people wouldn’t realise that we have little blue penguins roosting right in the middle of Wellington – but it’s a happy fact of life. “Unfortunately most dogs will

naturally see a little blue penguin as prey – and if a dog is off-leash then it’ll kill a penguin in a couple of seconds – before anybody can do anything,” he said. Mr Gilberd said pet owners should use the city’s dog parks to provide off-leash exercise. He said the identity of the dog owner was unknown. “In theory city council or the Department of Conservation could prosecute the owner if they were identified – but I think it is very important for the community to know why dogs should be on leashes – to stop this kind of thing happening in the first place.”

Council sponsors emerging sportswomen

Sports talk

with Jacob Page

Living the sports lover’s dream This week must have been heaven for sports fans. Monday started early for me, watching Team New Zealand compete in the America’s Cup off Bermuda and Kiwi Scott Dixon start on pole at the Indianapolis 500. Say what you want about fat cats and their yachts, this America’s Cup racing is exhilarating to watch. The high speeds, intense tactics and short-timed racing make it perfect 21st century sports viewing for the easily distracted fan. Dixon’s crash, while a shame, was a testament to the safety equipment in the car. He walked away after being airborne at 350kph. Wednesday night is Origin night and if you’re a Queensland fan, you’re probably more excited about it than if you support the baby blue. The NBA finals start with the third consecutive finals series between

Wellington City Council will be sponsoring the Emerging Sportswoman of the Year Category at the Wellington Hospitality Group Sportsperson of the Year Awards for the fourth time. The Wellington Sportsperson of the Year Awards would be taking place on Wednesday, June 14 at the TSB Bank arena. The Sport Wellington event celebrated sporting excellence in the capital, and Mayor of Wellington Justin Lester supported the contribution sport makes to the whole community. “This event is a great opportunity to not only showcase the remarkable athletes and sports teams we have in the capital, but also promote

the success and dedication of the coaches, volunteers, administrators, and of course, the supporters,” Mr Lester said. “We are celebrating a six-year-partnership with the currently second placed Pulse netball team this year. The team use our ASB sports centre in Kilbirnie as a practice space, and have access to our pools and Club Active facilities for training.” In November, council would be co-hosting a one day forum focused on increasing the visibility of women in sport and sparking a conversation around the power of sport to change the lives of New Zealand women and girls.

the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors. It’s the best basketball on the planet. Watch LeBron James go into beast mode for the Cavs and Kevin Durant look for that elusive title he came to Golden State to win. The best movies are trilogies and this sporting clash will be no different. Add into that a Crusaders v Highlanders Super Rugby clash on Saturday night which pits the two best teams against each other, the start of the British and Irish Lions tour this weekend and cricket’s Champions Trophy beginning in England and the sports lover is spoilt for choice. How many matches can the Lions win on their month long tour? They’ll be lucky to win 40 per cent in my view. What a smorgasbord of sport to get excited about.

Lyall Bay club member off to Japan Lyall Bay Surf Lifesaving Club member Atakura Julian will be part of the national team competing in the Sanyo Cup this month. The Sanyo Cup is an annual beach competition hosted by the Japan Lifesaving Association and this year it will be held at the Momochihama Seaside Park in Fukuoka from June 24-25. Atakura is both new to the team and new to the high performance

programme, having recently been called up to attend the Sanyo Cup. The two days of racing would include events such as Surf Race, Board Race, Oceanman/Woman, Beach Flags, Beach Sprint, Board Rescue Tube Rescue, Oceanwoman Relay and Beach Relay. New Zealand would join teams from Australia, USA, Great Britain, Netherlands, South Africa, Hong Kong and Japan.

Raising funds by riding across Canada By Emma McAuliffe

An Island Bay resident has got on his bike to raise funds for cancer research. Lindsay Gault headed to Canada on Sunday to set out on an extreme solo cycling adventure about the Arctic Circle with the aim of touching the Arctic, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. He said he was inspired to do this as cancer had touched the lives of his loved ones. “In 2011 my life was rocked when my best mate Vince lost his wife to cancer. We were about to ride the length of Africa together. “I have seen so many close friends suffer, dreams lost and loved ones taken. My Dad died at age 49, last week both my sister and sister in law were diagnosed with cancer. “My sister had the added disappointment of having to cancel a world trip to see her children. “I want to carry the banner for seizing the opportunity and doing the things you love, but with contribution along the way,” Lindsay said.

This would not be the first time Lindsay, a veteran ultra-distance cyclist, had ridden to help others in need. In 2011 he rode 12,000 kilometres Cairo to Cape Town - raising money for bicycles for disadvantaged children and for remote transport for health workers in Africa, in 2013 he rode 3,000 kilometres Nairobi to Lusaka raising money for cancer and in 2016 he rode the length of New Zealand, again raising funds for cancer. Lindsay said this ride would be over 12,000 kilometres of transCanadian trails. “It will traverse the length and width of Canada. The ride is solo and unsupported utilising the TransCanada trails recently opened in celebration of Canada’s 200 year anniversary,” he said. He planned to have the journey finished on October 16.  For more information or to support Lindsay in his goal head to
