Continued from page 1. At the New Zealand Boxing Championships, Jared and Manawa boxed in the cadet division, while Raymond boxed in the junior division. Wainuiomata Boxing Club head coach Craig Bennett said it was good for the club and

Jared, Raymond, and Manawa individually to come away with national titles. He said it was a good result and ticked the boxes, but was about the boys and the effort they put in. The New Zealand Boxing Championships was Manawa’s

first national competition – it was Jared’s second and Raymond’s fifth time at the event. Earlier this year, the trio also took out top spots at the Central North Island Championships held in Rotorua. Jared and Manawa competed in one and a half minute bouts

while Raymond was required to box for two minutes. This year’s event was held at Rotorua’s Energy Events Centre on September 11-15. Wainuiomata Boxing Club is one of Wainuiomata’s many sporting clubs and was started in the 1950s.

It’s easy - get prepared for an emergency An earthquake which shook central New Zealand recently could be the reminder that many people need to get their households prepared. The 5.1-magnitude earthquake happened on Wednesday, September 20. It was centred 17 kilometres deep and 30km northeast of Seddon. The quake was felt strongly

around the Wellington region, including in Wainuiomata. Wainuiomata has seven Community Emergency Hubs that are available to the public should there be a significant earthquake, storm or other natural disaster in the region. These emergencies would, if severe, have similar impacts and would make it hard to get around, communicate and

access the essentials. The Community Emergency Hubs are Arakura Primary School, Brookfield Scout Camp, Fernlea School, Konini School, Pukeatua School, Rimutaka Forest Park, and Wainuiomata School Keeping on top of what is happening during an emergency is also something residents should be mindful of. For

updates, people can visit getprepared.nz, follow Hutt City Council and the Wellington Regional Emergency Management Office on Twitter and Facebook, or visit civildefence. govt.nz for a comprehensive list of instructions for a range of emergencies. For Lower Hutt, the biggest risks are earthquakes, storms and flooding.
