Still going strong

By Dan Whitfield

It must have been love at first sight because after 60 years Jim and Jean Dixon are still going strong. Jim and Jean (nee Nash) met each other for the first time on a blind date and later got married in Eton Wick, England on July 27, 1957. They smiled explaining the story about being set up. “It was a friend of mine who set us up,” Jim said. “I just thought why not,” Jean added. Continued on page 2. Jim and Jean Dixon recently celebrated 60 years of marriage. Photo: DAN WHITFIELD

A group of 30 Japanese students from Oshukan High School in Tokyo, their principal and three staff members have visited Wainuiomata High School. The group visited to attend ESOL classes at the school, take

part in cultural activities and see some of the sights Wellington has to offer. Students and staff from Wainuiomata High School explained that they were pleased to be able to host their Japanese counter-

parts as they would be hosting Wainuiomata students travelling to Japan at the end of term three. Wainuiomata High School also has a close relationship with Iizuka High School, another school based in Japan.

Wainuiomata student Talyse Tipene-Sialava’a is currently on an exchange at Iizuka High School for two months and two of their students will be attending Wainuiomata High School for the coming weeks.

Review of parking in Lower Hutt moves into second gear Hutt City Council’s Policy and Regulatory Committee have given the green light to continue work on a city-wide parking policy, part of a wider review of parking in Lower Hutt. Parking policies are recognised internationally as doing much more than efficiently and safely managing parking and traffic flow in the mid-term. Hutt City Council divisional manager strategy and planning Wendy Moore said “done well, it can add to the local economy and make the city a healthier and more pleasant place to

live, and these are key and clear objectives we’re working towards.” She said an important consideration will be reducing the number of private cars on the road in favour of public transport, cycling and walking. “While this might not be a popular topic for many drivers, the reality of the not-so-distant future is likely to include the need to face up to our carbon emissions and cut down on our use of cars… And high traffic volumes don’t fit well with idea of creating a

liveable and vibrant city. There are other options and this is what we are exploring now,” Moore said. The policy is being designed to support council’s plans for shaping and rejuvenating the city in a rapidly changing world. Cities like Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch have already grasped the importance of parking policies in shaping their cities. The committee has agreed to the first stage of the policy, which covers its objectives and the ways different tools to man-

age parking, like pricing and time restrictions, can be used to manage parking availability and traffic flows. It also looks at the types of parking users, such as drivers with disabilities, local residents, commuters and cyclists. Stage two will consider how the ways to control parking can be used in specific situations and parts of the city and what kind of users may get priority access to parking. A proposed policy will be available for public consultation by the end of the year.

Local portrait: Josh Briggs International students meet Hutt South MP By Andre Chumko, MASSEY JOURNALISM STUDENT

Councillor Josh Briggs was green when he first moved to Wainuiomata seven years ago, but now he calls the suburb home. Briggs, who is serving his first term on Hutt City Council, moved to Wainuiomata with his pregnant wife Aimee to start a family and learn how to be parents. A paediatric doctor, Aimee worked between Wellington and Hutt Hospital and the young couple needed somewhere to fit their lifestyle. Born in Invercargill and raised in Porirua, Briggs had little connection to Wainuiomata other than playing rugby there during school days. After their daughter Ellie was born, Briggs became a stay-at-home parent, but as the family did not know anybody, their first year was “very insular”.

“We started the family with the intent that I’d be a stay-at-home dad. My parents split when I was two years old, so I grew up with my amazing mum and obviously didn’t have a father around. So I was always really keen if I was lucky enough to have kids that I’d be a really active dad,” he said. It was at that point, in 2013, he decided to stand for the Hutt Valley District Health Board to begin connecting with those around him. But while he was trying out for the DHB, Briggs was encouraged to stand for the Wainuiomata Community Board instead. Hesitant, he threw his hat in the ring and was elected by a narrow margin as the lowest-ranked candidate. That was the start of a three-year term where he made Wainuiomata “feel more like home”. By the time local government elections came around again in 2016, Briggs felt compelled to move up to council. “It became really clear to me that if I was able to be able to support the community and the city in a significant way, that would be more possible as a councillor with the level of decision making.” He was comfortably elected with 2299 votes alongside Campbell Barry. Now, as his daughter is set to enter her third year of schooling in 2018, and baby number two is due in January, his mission would be balancing council duties with family. “A priority for me is my whanau, and particularly those early days and months just connecting with our baby. That will be paramount for me.”

Wainuiomata Mall upgrade? Dear editor, What is happening regarding Wainuiomata Mall? It is several months since Countdown purchased the mall and the silence has been deafening. Nobody I have asked has been able, willing or wants to advise me the answer to the question which, I am sure, a large percentage of Wainuiomata residents would like to know. As a resident of 44 years in the valley, I have my concerns. Yours sincerely, Mike Brown SELF SERVICE

space based in Lower Hutt to help pay its art tutors. MIX manager Stephanie Cairns said the grant made a huge difference. “Our tutors mentored 120 Hutt Valley artists who live with the experience of mental distress. Under this tuition and support, they prepared artwork for solo and group exhibitions, and achieved individual artistic success,” Cairns said. Applications close on 14 August 2017.

Gardeners unite for monthly meeting From roses to hydrangeas, gardeners of the Wainuiomata Gardeners Club are proud of what they grow. The club meets on the first Tuesday of every month at the Louise Bilderbeck Hall and this month gardeners were privileged to hear from Grant White, a former helicopter pilot who shared some of his experiences flying in areas such as the Antartic, Peru, Papua New Guinea.

Winners from this month’s competitions saw Jill Summers take out first in the single bloom category, followed closely by Raewyn Davies, and Doreen Hore. The spike cluster category was won by Lyn Clode, second was Raewyn Davies, and third was Doreen Hore. For the shrubs, Doreen Hore placed first followed by Jill Summers and Joyce Lockyer. The vegetable category was won by Raewyn Davies, second was

Jill Summers and Doreen Hore came third. Jill Summers took out the fruit category, with Joyce Lockyer coming second, followed by Barbara Boardman in third. The club is getting ready to host the annual Spring Flower Show, to be held at the Wainuiomata School Hall on Sunday, September 10.  For more information about the flower show or Wainuiomata Gardeners Club, call Wendy Pulik on 564 1497.

Colourful ceramics on show Paula Archibald will hold her first solo, vibrant and colourful exhibition at Petone’s Artspace Gallery this August. The Otaki artist has been working with clay for 26 years and creates unique, one off artworks using a variety of techniques fin-

ished off with a variation of glazes. The Joyful Ceramic Art of Paula Archibald opened on August 5 and runs until September 3. It is on at the Alfred Memelink Artspace Gallery, Petone, from Tuesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm.

Support for Kaibosh Food Rescue Kaibosh Food Rescue in Lower Hutt has been the recipient of an outpouring of support from the staff, students and parents of Chilton Saint James School. A $1015 donation was made to the local not-forprofit organisation in July to assist with their work of rescuing and redistributing quality surplus food to people in need.

Kaibosh Lower Hutt Operations Manager Jen Gibson said it was extremely heart-warming to receive such a depth of support from the wider Chilton Saint James School community. Funds raised will assist Kaibosh to deliver the equivalent of 1285 meals to organisations that support people in need.

School saves, students benefit A Hutt City Council solar schools initiative has saved one Wainuiomata primary school $1400 in its first year. Pukeatua School Principal Mrs Jenni Adam said she was surprised about how much we saved when you consider the poor

Wanted: Hospital equipment Each year hundreds of pieces of hospital equipment is walked, carried or wheeled from Hutt Valley District Health Board, never to be returned. Occupational Therapy Professional Leader Magbh McIntyre said usually people just forget to return it, have put it aside, or put it off for so long they are embarrassed to bring it back. The top five items that are not returned are crutches, shower stools, over toilet frames, bathboards and

raised toilet seats. “Having this equipment back means that we can help other patients recover,” Magbh said. “A new wheelchair costs around $500 – money we would rather spend on new equipment for our patients than replacing stock we already have.” Hutt Valley District Health Board’s equipment amnesty is to raise awareness of the need to return loaned equipment, especially during the winter months when there is a high

demand for hospital services. “We welcome hospital equipment back at any time, no matter how overdue,” Magbh said. Equipment can be returned to Hutt Hospital Equipment Store, Gate 4, Pilmuir Street, Lower Hutt; Upper Hutt Physio Clinic; or Whai Oranga o Te Iwi Health Centre, The Strand, Wainuiomata. Smaller items can be returned to Hutt Hospital Emergency Department.

Students care for Wainuiomata River More than 100 children from Wainuiomata and Pukeatua schools will got up close and personal with the Wainuiomata River in the first week of August. Students conducted a stream health assessment, planted trees and learnt about native ecosystems. The event was led by Enviroschools with the support of Hutt City Council, Greater Wellington Re-

gional Council and Tākiri mai te ata. Enviroschools facilitator Micheline Evans said: “This is the second in a series of events for Lower Hutt school students to get together with students from neighbouring schools, embark in some learning in their local environment which then follows on to further learning and action back in your school.”

Ulalei’s comeback secures quarterfinal spot

Sports talk

with Jacob Page

Seeing red over a lack of whites

ABOVE: Goal defence Te Araroa Sopoaga and goal keep Rachel Savelio stretch to defend the shot. RIGHT: Wing defence Luaipou Oloamanu creating havoc for Maidstone attackers on the circle edge.

A convincing win against Upper Hutt Maidstone United 2 has propelled Ulalei 1 into the quarterfinals. Ulalei 1 managed to get things together after back-to-back losses, winning 55-42 on Saturday. The team is now in third place. “We said last week we needed to win strong, and the girls delivered,” said captain Emma Mamea Wyma. After a slow start, the dominant defensive combination of Rachel Savelio, Te Araroa Sopoaga and Luaipou Oloamanu shut down Maidstone’s attack creating turnovers for the shooters to score at the other end. The win was a great send off for departing captain Mamea Wyma who heads overseas for a one year sabbatical. The quarterfinals will be played this

Saturday. Times for the games will be confirmed later this week. Ulalei 2 unfortunately lost their final game of the round, coming up short against seventh-ranked Petone Steelers. The final score was 47-63. Despite the loss, the young team were pleased to have posted their highest score this season and frustrated the opposition in the first quarter with the score level at 13-all. They face Petone Steelers again this Saturday to see what team remains in the premier two grade next season. Captain Jamie-Rose Kydd said she believes her team can be competitive at this level and next week, wants to improve from this game and cause an upset.

Runners set the pace for Wellington champs Though it was a little cold, runners from Wainuiomata Athletic and Harrier Club’s got moving for their Club Road Champs last month. The race provided runners with preparation ahead of the Wellington Road Champs on August 19 – as the course follows the same stretch of Waterworks Rd in Wainuiomata. Younger runners set the pace up front, followed by the other runners and

Four test matches for this New Zealand summer of cricket simply is not enough. A pair of two-test series bookending a jam-packed summer schedule which sees Pakistan, the West Indies and a post-Ashes bound England hit our shores but there is only 20 days of the purist form of the game this 2017/2018 season. Yes, there’s a plethora of cricket to view, plenty of limited overs action but I long for at least three test series. I long for red ball and white clothes drama, games within games, the swing in momentum from test session to test session. I understand I’m in the minority, I’m a hardcore cricket fan that would happily take five consecutive days out of his life to watch every ball of a test match, but two test series are never long enough. Test cricket doesn’t pay, I get that too. Many of my fairweather sports fan mates will happily watch a twenty20

game because of its thrill a minute, all done in three hour format. But, selfishly, while I watch T20 cricket, I don’t think I’ve ever cared about the result of a match. To me, it’s slap and giggle, roll a dice, hope one batsman plays a blinder and that team wins. I’m onboard with 50-over cricket, everyone should be after the 2015 World Cup in that format but even those series were followed by three test series. It means I’ll have eight chances maximum to watch Kane Williamson at the crease facing a red ball, the same with Ross Taylor. Ultimately I think the players side with the purists, they want more test cricket, after all that is what their career records are judged on most. Williamson with bat in hand is as much my summer guilty pleasure as a rum and coke on a warm day. I feel like I’m being short-changed this summer and I’m sure I’m not alone.

Premier support from Wainui Wainuiomata Rugby Club teamed up with the Cancer Society to support Ruck Cancer. Players from Wainuiomata also joined their counterparts premier club teams as well as four college first XV sides to wear purple socks on May 14 in a bid to reduce the risk of cancer by highlighting the benefits of healthy living and regular doctor’s visits. Ruck Cancer and Purple Sock Day

are the creation of former Wellington Lions player Evan Belford who took up the cause after losing Poneke Football Club teammate and close family friend Misiluni Moananu to bowel cancer.
