Nunsense! By Glenise Dreaver

When dancer and choreographer Rochelle Rose of Khandallah and singer Tania Parker of Crofton Downs met during the 2016 production of Sister Act, a friendship, and very soon a new theatre group, began. They quickly agreed that the arts scene in Wellington had a major gap. Young performers here have many chances to work, unpaid, in amateur musical theatre. “But there is little chance of moving on to paid work as professionals. The only option is to continue unpaid, or move overseas,” says Tania. Continued on page 2. Nunsense performers front from left: Rochelle Rose, Jane Keller, Tania Parker.

Nunsense set to hit the stage Continued from page 1. Within weeks of developing the concept, their new cooperative Wing It, with its collaborative profit sharing model, was granted the Australasian rights to the off-Broadway hit comedy musical Nunsense. The project grew quickly after they approached two internationally known and respected Wellington professionals, director Lyndee-Jane Rutherford

and musical director Michael Nicholas Williams. These two mentors drew the cast together after Michael suggested Nunsense as a starting place for the company. Jane Keller, a tutor with a long history of international success in musical theatre, was soon on board too. The company’s name was Rochelle’s idea. “A Wing is a tap dancing step,” she said.

“And winging it is about improvising new ways to meet challenges,” said Tania. That has meant many weeks of administration, business planning and co-ordinating and developing their highly motivated team. One of the key principles is providing support and mentoring for the young performers and Wing It principals have already scheduled several

workshops as part of that. Other major projects are also in the pipeline. Nunsense rehearsals have begun, with opening night to be held on January 30, 2018 in the Gryphon Theatre. Tania said there was widespread interest in the project, with hundreds of “likes” on the website page within two days of going live.

Increased majority a relief to new MP First-time Labour MP Greg O’Connor has increased his election-night majority in Ohariu by 372, up from 679 to 1051 more than his National opponent Brett Hudson. The news came on Saturday when the 3000 special electorate votes were announced. Brett however, remains in Parliament as a list MP. Greg’s final count was 17,084 to Brett’s 16033, though the National electorate vote here was 45.2 per cent to Labour’s 35.4 per cent. Greg’s pleased with the size of his majority. “It’s a good buffer. I can get on with the job now,” he said. The original small margin meant he’d been on tenterhooks though his son, playing rugby in Ireland, asked him what he was worried about. “Any more than one vote is a wasted effort.” “But I have to say when it comes to his rugby it’s a different matter,” Greg added. He can now sort out his electorate office premises and staff. “We couldn’t do much until now.” He took a call of congratulations from party leader Jacinda Ardern soon after the final results came through at 2pm on Saturday, but wasn’t being drawn further about the conversation.

His two week induction has finished and he says of his experience of Parliament so far: “There’s a lot of good people there all wanting the same thing, which is to improve the country. “But surprise, surprise. There’s politics’s involved. Who would have thought?” As the former president of the New Zealand Police Association, he is a cousin of Damien O’Connor, Labour MP for West Coast-Tasman. Greg is married to Desley and they have three children. Their eldest son is in Ireland, their daughter is studying in Dunedin and their middle child is special needs and lives away from home. The third ranking candidate in Ohariu was Jessica Hammond of The Opportunity Party (TOP) led by Gareth Morgan; with 2898 votes. She pushed Greens candidate Tane Woodley into fourth place with 2522 votes. The United Future Party vote collapsed with Bale Nadakuitavuki on just 248, as compared to the 13,569 votes cast in 2014 for now-retired MP and former party leader Peter Dunne. There were 305 informal candidate votes cast and 84 informal party votes.

Toi Pōneke exhibition coming up “Are yous ok?” opens at Toi Pōneke on October 20 and runs until November 11. Gina Matchitt’s exhibition looks at issues of disparity and inequality, namely, Pakeha privilege and Māori disadvantage in New Zealand society.

Jack Gradwell of Thorndon, a student of International Relations at Victoria University, knew that the centenary of the battle of Passchendaele was coming up this year. He works part-time at the Dominion Museum, where the Great War Exhibition is being run by the The National Military Heritage Charitable Trust, and took the opportunity to brush up on his history. He wanted to find out where his relatives were in World War I. He discovered that two of his great-great grandfathers were

at Passchendaele – and both returned from the carnage, unlike the 846 who never came back from what is still described as “New Zealand’s blackest day”. What Jack discovered about G e orge G r a dwel l, f rom Ghuznee Street Te Aro, left him amazed. “He had one of the worst medical records of any New Zealand soldier. At different times he was buried alive, he had his skull fractured and he was mustard gassed. All in different actions, but he survived.” “And I knew he was decorated, but not for what.” George earned the Military

Medal at Passchendaele for his work in carrying messages from one post to another. “Under heavy shell and machine gun fire, through poison gas, at times up to his waist in mud and blood. He did that for three days straight,” says Jack. There are limited family memories and most of what Jack knows of him has been through military records. He has, however, seen and touched George’s medals and provided the museum with his bayonet and his camera. The family connection continues too. His uncle John still lives in the Island Bay house that

George lived in after the war. The Great War Exhibition has been created by Sir Peter Jackson to commemorate the role of New Zealand in that conflict. The additional Passchendaele exhibition room tells the story of the battle mainly through the medium of a rolling five minute audio-visual display.  Centenary commemorations of the Battle of Passchendaele will be held at Pukeahu National War Memorial Park, Buckle St, on Thursday, October 12 at 3pm.

inbrief news Escaping stress vital It’s Mental Health Week and the theme is “Nature is Key - Unlock Your Wellbeing”. The idea is to escaping stressful or ‘same old rut’ work and home environments to eat your lunch in a park or at the beach, to take the family for a weekend bush walk. It can lift spirits, put you back in touch with Nature, and get you thinking about your health, your priorities - and whether you may need to reach out for help or advice.

Foodbank seeks bags The Karori Food Bank gives out emergency food parcels every week. Up until now, it has given its clients food in a mix of cardboard boxes and plastic bags donated by a generous local supermarket. Spokesperson Ray Coats says, they have now realised that plastic bags are “not the ethical thing”. They are asking for donations of suitable bags, either secondhand or hand made, in which to distribute the food. Donations of bags can be left at the Karori Community Centre “We are asking people to donate them knowing that we

are not likely to get them back,” says Ray. “They are just given as part of the parcel.” The Karori Food Bank operates a simple emergency model, where clients can have one or two donations. On the third donation, they are told it is the last and are referred to the Citizen’s Advice Bureau, situated right below their room. “Some cases are just a one-off though,” says Ray. While it surprises some people that an apparently wealthy community like Karori should have the need for a Food Bank, there are, he said, pockets of poverty that you don’t realise are there.

Travel Your guide to...

Travel safely and prepare well Vietnam and Cambodia life changing experiences


Few things are more exciting than travelling internationally. But nowadays, many people are wary of it, fearing that it is dangerous. Mostly however, world travel is very safe but there are safety precautions you should take. Here are some of them. • Get a medical checkup and the appropriate vaccinations: Many destinations require vaccinations before you arrive, so find out what you need.

• Make electronic copies of your documents: Include your immunization record, itinerary, medical insurance card, passport, plane tickets, travel insurance, and visas before you leave. Email the file to yourself and keep it in your inbox. • Don’t Carry Everything Together: Keep any cash, credit cards, IDs, and things you won’t be using in your hotel room safe. Separate your money and items you must carry on you and

carry them in different spots on your person. • Don’t carry things in your back pocket. Pickpocketing is common in some places. Keep items at your front and don’t hang bags on chairs, or leave them at your feet. • Look back when leaving in case you have left something behind. • Leave the bling at home. • Don’t confide in strangers. • Invest in travel insurance.

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville, a flat in Phillip Street, which had been left locked and secure, was entered and a TV was stolen. The locked basement of a house in Fraser Avenue was entered via a forced lock. Garden equipment is stored in this area but it is not yet known if anything was stolen. A house in Burgess Road was broken into through a forced back door. A side door was also forced open. There were signs of an obvious search in all rooms. Stolen property (not specified) is

believed to have been removed through the forced side door. In Newlands, an alarm was activated at a primary school in Bancroft Terrace. CCTV footage shows that two young males had climbed through an open window. Nothing is known to have been stolen. Two aluminium windows were forced open to gain access into a newly constructed house in Red Beech Avenue. Painting equipment, including power tools, owned by tradesman working on

the property were stolen. In Khandallah, a tradesman working on a house in Mandalay Terrace was going back and forth carrying building materials and did not lock his vehicle between each trip. During one trip, an offender took the opportunity to steal several high value power tools. In Raumati Terrace, a man employed to mow the lawns left his vehicle unlocked. While he was out of sight of the van an offender took the opportunity to open the unlocked sliding door and take a newly-

purchased lawnmower. A white Nissan stationwagon parked overnight in a designated parking area in Cockayne Road had its driver side window smashed. Nothing is known to have been stolen. In Crofton Downs, a newly-built house in Silverstream Road was entered through a forced front door. Large packs of recently delivered items awaiting installation were stolen. They included a water filtration system and packs of mixers, taps and shower fittings.

Karori rest home nurtures family focus

Huntleigh Home’s George McIntosh and his devoted wife, Violet.

When Violet first met George McIntosh as a young man in Scotland, he was an eager 18-year-old just entering the workforce. His job search eventually took the pair to New Zealand, where they married in 1958. “George used to work on ships out at the wharf while I ran a small dairy on Holloway Road in Aro Valley. It worked really well with three kids off at school,” says Violet. It was a shock for the active couple when George was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 44. “Thankfully, with Parkinson’s disease, the onset is gradual, so he was able to work for years after he was diagnosed,” says the devoted wife. “He did all the usual things like exercises and speech therapy, but eventually we got to the stage last year where I couldn’t cope,” says Violet. The family set about researching rest homes which would provide a warm, supportive environment for George and allow them to visit him regularly – that’s when they heard about Enliven’s Huntleigh Home in Karori. “We’d heard great things about Huntleigh, so we decided to look into it further. It’s just such a sunny place and there’s always

something going on. We decided that if he couldn’t be at home with us, this was the next best thing.” A year later, George and Violet say they have no regrets. “The staff are marvelous and Violet and the family are able to visit me any time. It really suits our situation,” says George. Violet agrees. “I think he gives the staff a bit of a run-around sometimes, but then he’s been giving me the run-around for the last 60 years!” Manager Tim Levchenko-Scott says connection is a core part of the Enliven philosophy which Huntleigh Home follows. “Our philosophy is based on the eldercentred Eden Alternative model of care and, as part of that, we’re committed to helping elders stay connected to the people they love.” “We don’t do visiting hours here. It’s all about what the elders want and if they want their family around them, then the more the merrier!”  For more information about Huntleigh Home and Apartments at 221 Karori Road, Karori visit or call the home directly on 04 464 2020.

Help the fight against breast cancer The Breast Cancer Foundation NZ is asking Kiwis everywhere to support its Pink Ribbon Appeal this Friday and Saturday, October 13 and 14. Collectors will be shaking their pink buckets on the streets and at shopping centres around the country. The aim is to raise funds for vital research into new targeted treatments, medical equipment for hospitals, life-saving awareness and education programmes, and support for women going through breast cancer. “Thousands of volunteers have generously committed their time to this week’s appeal,” says BCFNZ chief executive Evangelia Henderson. “Now we need Kiwis everywhere to drop a gold coin in the bucket. Your gift helps us work towards our long-term vision of zero deaths from breast cancer. “If you don’t have loose change on the day you can text PINK to 4499 to make a $3 donation. Either way, we’ll be very grateful,” she says. Breast cancer is the most common cancer for New

Zealand women. One in nine women will be diagnosed in their lifetime and eight women a day are diagnosed. Almost everyone knows someone affected by breast cancer. Research shows that the earlier it is detected, the better the outcome, so BCFNZ is reminding all women to be breast aware from age 20. “These days, we have the knowledge to beat breast cancer if it’s found early,” says Mrs Henderson. “All women should be aware. Know the normal look and feel of your breasts so you can report changes to your doctor. “Consider annual mammograms from age 40, then have mammograms every two years from age 50. Free screening is available between 45 and 69 through the national breast screening service. Over 70s should continue mammograms every two years, even if you have to pay for them.” Visit the Foundation’s www. site for more information about signs of breast cancer and how to check your breasts.

Interested buyers for Karori campus Victoria University has announced that the fi rst phase of the sales process for its Karori campus, which involved interested parties registering their interest, is now complete. A press release advises that the university will work with qualified buyers as they prepare formal offers for the former teacher’s college. It is expected that this phase will take approximately six weeks, after which there will be a period

to complete contracts. Further details will be provided when this process is complete. Wellington City Council has purchased a parcel of land on the former campus to provide additional car parking adjacent to the Karori swimming pool. The process of offering back land surplus to requirements to the original owner or successor, which the university is required to do for some parts of the campus under the Public Works Act, is

With over 20 years as part of the local community, the experienced staff in our practice are on hand to provide quality eye examinations, eyewear fashion and lens advice, contact lens fitting and frame adjustments.

Early detection is the key to resolving many medical issues and eye health is no exception. Having a regular, comprehensive eye examination means you have a better chance of any problem being diagnosed before it is too late. You don’t need to travel far for quality eyecare.

TRAVEL SAFELY WITH THE WORLD’S NO 1 TYRE BENEATH YOU The average surface area between your tyres and the road is only about the size of your palm! So you need to make sure that contact is the best it can be by using Bridgestone Tyres. Tony and the team at Johnsonville’s Autostop will set your vehicle up for the holidays and into the spring/summer months to get you and your family safely

around New Zealand. While they’re seeing to the tyres they can also check your all important shock absorbers and brake condition. A current brake and shock absorber test machine (Safe T Stop) gives a print out of your vehicle’s performance so you can analyse just what needs replacing or servicing at the best price. Car performance is crucial to your driving safety.

Science captivates children

By Glenise Dreaver

During the first week of the school holidays, the National Science-Technology Roadshow Trust ensured there were crowds of enthralled children – and some adults - in Johnsonville Shopping Centre. Roadshow manager Shane Kingston and Kendall Lister normally take their truck to schools, but

the holiday experience in the mall, with hands-on experiments, demonstrations and talks kept local children captivated. The roadshow aims to inspire students to wonder and think critically about their world, broadening their knowledge and experiences, “connecting them to the science and technology of today and the future”.

If it doesn’t challenge you it doesn’t change you!

Looking for champions of public access The Te Araroa Wellington Trust, who built the popular Paekakariki-Pukerua Bay escarpment track near Wellington, was one of last year’s winners of The Outdoor Access Champion Awards. The Walking Access Commission is again calling for nominations of people and groups who are champions of public access to the outdoors. Nominations are open until November 17. Winners will be decided by the commission’s board. The Outdoor Access Champion

Awards, which have been running since 2013, recognise those who have made significant and lasting contributions to public access to the outdoors in New Zealand, including through building new tracks and trails, securing new legal access, and championing public rights of access. “These awards are New Zealand’s way of saying thanks to some of the wonderful people who have helped open up the great outdoors to the public,” said Eric Pyle, chief executive of the Walking Access Commission.

“We are lucky to live in a country with such spectacular scenery, and the people who work hard to enable us to experience it deserve recognition for their efforts. “The public are encouraged to think about their local champions - both individuals and groups and put forward a nomination for consideration,” said Eric Pyle. As well as the Te Araroa Wellington Trust, last year’s award winners included Duane Major and Adam Gardiner who led the public campaign

that saw more than 40,000 people donate to buy a beach in Awaroa Inlet and add it to Abel Tasman National Park. The Nelson Tasman Cycle Trails Trust were honoured for their work building trails at the top of the South Island as was Rod Eatwell, the largest private landowner on the Queen Charlotte Track. Nominations can be made via the Commission’s website - walkingaccess. at any time before 5pm on Friday November 17.

DoC gets busy with activities, events and competitions This year Conservation Week (14 – 22 October) is full of fun activities, events and competitions designed to inspire you to take a look in your backyard and see how you can help nature. Department of Conservation protects our amazing and unique wildlife across

the country – and you can help! Even small actions make a big difference. Get along to one of 12 events at Zealandia’s Conservation Week Hub, grab some ‘feral food’ at the Harbourside Market, win a free native plant form Wellington City Council, head to Wellington Zoo

or help wipe out weeds in the Botanic Gardens. Doing something for Conservation Week is easy. Plant a native, set a trap for rats in your garden or local reserve, clean up your local beach or stream, or weed some invasive species.

Enter the “love my backyard” photo competition. The best conservation activity could win you a trip for four with Air New Zealand to the iconic Iconic Ulva Island/Te Wharawhara. Check out nz for more events and ideas.
