Making a change for every dog By Julia Czerwonatis

A dog abandoned on the side of a road with a wound on his back, as large as a crater, and not a single hair on his body. It’s a horrific scene that Khandallah businessman Leigh Burney witnesses during his family holiday in Bali last year, and despite his efforts to save the suffering stray that Leigh named Kiwi, the dog dies within a couple of days. It’s an eye-opening experience for Leigh as he realises that Kiwi is just one of so many dogs abandoned, abused and ailing – not only in Bali but worldwide. Leigh strongly believes that it is time for a change and has committed himself to be part of that change. Continued on page 2. Leigh Burney, founder of Dogs of the Globe, and his dog Bella.

Organisation to fund animal welfare launched by local businessman Continued from page 1. With his newly founded charity Dogs of the Globe (DOG), Leigh aims to establish an international funding portal that supports dog welfare organisations anywhere in the world. “There are many good dog rescue organisations that are working hard, but the problem is that they’re spending up to 50 percent of their time trying to raise funds to carry out their work,” Leigh explains. “We want to provide a solution to this problem by building a fund where they can apply for grants for approved projects.” There are estimated to be around 300 million ‘known’ dog owners worldwide, and with his bold vision, Leigh wants to inspire everyone who cares about the man’s best friend to donate $10 annually. “$10 a year is a minor contribution by a single person but if it comes from a lot of people, it can become something incredibly powerful.” Leigh wants to fight dog overpopulation, tackling the core issue that causes the animals’ suffering.

Another key goal will be to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome dogs in distress, and also to act as an advocate for dogs. “Research also shows that only one out of 10 dogs born today will find a permanent home, that leaves a large number of unwanted dogs left to suffer what are often very short and miserable lives,”

Leigh says. He is currently working fulltime on setting up DOG while his wife Diane has taken over his marketing business. On board are several other business owners, lawyers, barristers, accountants and people who share Leigh’s vision. Leigh says getting momentum for the project to take-off

was the hardest part. “It’s about exciting people for the idea. Naturally, people are suspicious, so the challenge will be convincing them to be part of this. “But as a collective, we can make a difference.”  Visit DOG on Facebook @ dogsoftheglobefoundation.

New volunteering app launches in Wellington Collaborate, a new social enterprise app connecting volunteers with volunteering opportunities, was launched in Wellington with a group of 300 beta testers. The four-lady power-team won the BNZ Startup Alley and Rotary Kickstart runner-up prizes during the co-design phase of the app earlier this year. While volunteering for multiple organisations over the last five years, director Holly Norton, developed the concept with co-founders.

“We found the volunteering process cumbersome,” Holly says. So we decided to design an easy solution to find opportunities that line up with your skills and interests, one that allows you to earn rewards for your volunteering efforts.” Holly’s partners are Ceara McAuliffe Bickerton from Karori, Poppy Norton from Khandallah and Te Aro’s Sophie Seymour. With Collaborate, community

organisations post a specific task, ranging from things such as a short-term graphic design project to a social media campaign. Then they can connect instantly with skilled volunteers who indicate interest. The app will also feature practical opportunities to help out such as beach cleanups and tree planting. As the company is currently participating in Te Papa’s Mahuki programme, the initial launch will apply only to Wel-

lington-based opportunities, with a view to roll the app out nationally. Holly says she can’t wait to see the difference Collaborate will make. ”The app is an easy way for people to get involved in their communities and create positive social change. It also builds the experience of volunteers and capacity of organisations.”  Sign up at letscollaborate. co.nz.

Valuing human dignity By Julia Czerwonatis

Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime. With a wealth of powerful words, Nikaiah “Kiya” Basabas presented her speech about inequality at the Stockley Cup Intercollegiate Public Speaking Competition and took out the first place for the second time in a row. Twelve representatives from high schools in Wellington joined this year’s competition held at St Catherine’s College on October 24 with each contestant giving a six to eight-minute speech about a topic of their choice. “I chose to speak about the importance of creating equal opportunities for everyone; including refugees displaced by war, and people who are marginalised by others because of their race,” Kiya, senior student at Newlands College, says. “I repeated the phrase, ‘Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime’ throughout my speech, but to point out that this saying is not always true because ‘working hard’ still doesn’t guarantee a plate on the

table for everyone.” Kiya drew inspiration for her speech from reading “hurtful, biased and uninformed” comments online on social media and news websites. “The purpose of my speech was really to remind us, who are privileged, to care for people,” she explains. Kiya points at “misconceptions and generalisations” in New Zealand about “beneficiaries lying at home wasting taxpayers’ money”; but also goes beyond our own backyards and looks at global issues. She tells other people’s stories – a Syrian journalist who, despite her qualifications, is struggling to get by with her family torn apart. Many “educated, inquisitive minds are barricaded by borders of xenophobia and hatred”, Kiya says. “I don’t know why this is the case but I have been taught how to catch fish long enough now that I know that something fundamental needs to change.”  Watch Kiya’s winning speech on youtube.com/ watch?v=bT1NsXZ32H0&t=81s (search “Give A Man A Fish Speech – Kiya Basabas”).

Honorary doctorate for Dame Patsy Governor-General, Dame Patsy Reddy, will receive an honorary doctorate at Victoria University of Wellington graduation ceremony in December. Victoria University Chancellor Neville Jordan says the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws is an acknowledgement of Dame Patsy’s leadership as Governor-General as well as her previous career in law and business. “Dame Patsy has been an inspiration for women aspiring to leadership in the public and private sectors, and she continues to do so as the Queen’s representative in New Zealand.” Dame Patsy graduated with a Bachelor of Laws from Victoria University in 1976 and was subsequently awarded a Master of Laws (First Class Honours) in 1979. She lectured at Victoria’s Law Faculty before joining the law firm Watts and Patterson (now Minter Ellison Rudd Watts) in 1982.

Pupils take action against plastic pollution By Julia Czerwonatis

“Stop using plastic bags”, is the message Newlands Intermediate pupils send out to Wellingtonians as they set up a box full of hand-sewn Boomerang Bags, free for all New World Newlands shoppers. As part of their Curiosity Club, a group of pupils cleaned up their local stream, finding a lot of plastic bags that polluted the waterway. “The kids then investigated where most plastic bags came from and found out it was shopping bags from the supermarket,” Tessa Fitzgibbon, Newlands Intermediate School teacher, explains. Teachers and pupils decided to take action and contacted the Wellington Boomerang Bags initiative to help them launch their school-own sewing group. Tessa and about 14 pupils from years 7 and 8 meet every Thursday during lunchtime and after school to create re-usable shopping bags with fabric the children collect from the landfill. “None of us could sew before,” the pupils say. “It’s was fun to learn it.” Last Thursday, the group went

to visit New World Newlands owner Ross Jordan and to hand over the first load of Boomerang Bags together with an upcycled card box that has been spray painted and branded with the school’s emblems. “For children, this means being an active part of their community – this is where their

families go shopping, or their relatives work,” Tessa says. Ross believes the Boomerang Bags will be popular amongst his customers. “We’re working together with the public to reduce plastic and eventually phase it out,” Ross says. “So this is a fantastic way to

support that process.” The box with the free tote bags is located next to the plastic bag recycling bin behind the checkout counters and will be filled up regularly by the pupils. New World Newlands gives customers a five-cent discount off their shopping per re-usable bag they bring in.

Big clean-up ahead for Newlands By Julia Czerwonatis

Earth Guardian Talitha Wilson is determined to make her neighbourhood a cleaner place and organises the third annual Newlands clean-up day in a row. “I joined the Earth Guardians about four years ago and I’m now the crew leader for Wellington,” Talitha, senior student

at Newlands College, says. “It’s a worldwide group of young environmental activists who work in their communities and organise different events.” Talitha noticed that her neighbourhood had a problem with rubbish and contacted Wellington City Council telling them she would be keen to organise a clean-up. Northern ward councillor

Peter Gilberd and Newlands local Ross Jordan, New World Newlands owner, jumped on board to support Talitha Last year, Talitha and her clean-up crew of 10 collected 800 kilos of rubbish. “That just blew my mind,” she says. Talitha would like to take her project further and expand further into the city at some stage.

“This is just a small start, but it can make a difference.”  Talitha will meet all rubbish collectors on Sunday, November 12 at 10.30am (until 11.10am) at Newlands New World. Gloves and rubbish bags will be provided. Newlands Paparangi Progressive Association will provide a barbeque.

rata in Seton Nossiter Park, off White Pine Avenue in Woodridge and around Waihinahina Park. “Over the five years we have had regular planting sessions on Sundays after our morning services,” Jennie explains. “We’ve held a regular ‘Plant a Tree with Dad Day’ on Father’s day, inviting others in the wider community to join us in these efforts. “We’ve planted in fine weather and more damp conditions with some keen people turning up every

time. Once, a father and son planted 100 trees in a day.” Eleanor Sanderson, assistant bishop of Wellington, joined the tree-planters for their last session on Sunday recognising their efforts and saying a prayer over the 5000th tree planted. Jennie used the occasion to thank city councillor Peter for his support and also acknowledged local nurseries that supplied the native seedlings and helped them with planting know-how.

Newlands future will look a whole lot greener after the Church Of St Michael & All Angels and their community completed an ambitious project last Sunday. Over a period of five years, volunteers from the parish, their friends and family, as well as neighbouring groups, planted 5000 trees at the seams of the suburb with the vision to be growing a thorough native forest. “The 5000 trees in five years target was set by us back at the end of 2012, as a result of a challenge laid down by our Wellington Diocesan Bishop Justin Duckworth,” Reverent Jennie Sim, St Michael & All Angels vicar, explains. “At the diocesan synod in September 2012, we heard a presentation on climate change, including the statement that if every person could plant 40 trees, then the effects of climate change could be mitigated. “So Bishop Justin issued a challenge to our Anglican parishes to have every active attendee plant 40 trees in the next five years.” For Jennie, the tree planting project has been a fantastic journey enriched through community cooperation and the drive from enthusiastic volunteers. With the help of northern ward councillor Peter Gilberd, Jennie and the parish planted matai, pukatea, totara, miro, rimu and northern

Family reunions are usually big occasions, but it is rare for more than 100 people to turn up to them. That is indeed what took place in the cafeteria of the Dominion Museum Building where the Great War Exhibition is currently being held. The reunion carried special signifance as it was dedicated to the life of (Peter) Paul O’Malley, who was one of the many New Zealand soldiers who fought on the battlefields at Passchendaele Karori’s Emma Bradley, one of his many granddaughters, organised the reunion to celebrate Paul’s legacy as well as commemorate his efforts during those grim years of World War One. Born in 1897, the rifleman fought in northern France from October 1916 to early 1917 before being transferred to Messines then Passchendaele where he was shot in the shoulder and sent to London to convalesce. Remarkably, he continued to serve his country upon recovery, attending bombing and training camps until the war was over. With his wife Dorothy, Paul had 11 children who then gave them 45 grandchildren, who then had 80 children of their own. Emma painstakingly put

together a family tree of these descendants, which was on display at the October 28 reunion. Most of those descendants came from all over New Zealand to attend, and even one from Norway. Emma notes that post-war life was tough for Paul, as it would have been for anyone who suffered the psychological, as well as physical, scars of war. “I’m sure he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and I know he had bouts of depression,” she says.

“There was a lack of support back in those days. The war affected our family and upbringing.” A special guest with an extraordinary connection also attended. Opera singer Rebecca Woodmore, who sang E Paira, Jerusalem and Danny Boy on the night, attended school at the virtually unknown Central Otago settlement of Paerau, where Paul eventually lived after he had immigrated from Ireland. She went on to live in Belgium

and sang at war commemorations, including at Passchendaele. “New Zealand flags hang out of every house at Ypres [another Belgian battle site]. Even today there are still churches with bullet holes,” Rebecca told the audience. “The gratitude from them for our sacrifice is palpable.” Peter Jackson also paid tribute to the reunion by donating a colourised photograph of Kiwi stretcher-bearers at Passchendaele.

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: What do you think about the double-decker buses coming to Wellington?

Sharon Ralph, Johnsonville “I’m not sure. I wonder how many routes they can drive with all our tunnels and winding roads. Is this economical?”

Mike Davy, Khandallah “I’m undecided. It depends on how well it’s being run, maintained and managed.”

Dianne Small, Khandallah “They can transport more people faster. But I wonder how they will be able to manage our narrow and winding roads.”

Steven Tubbs, Newlands “It’s a step backwards if they are not attached to electric wire.”

Róisín Barry, Te Aro “Sure, if it’s needed here then that’s the way to go, I guess.”

Anita Nalder, Ngaio “I would rather see more small buses around here.”

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville a house in Chesterton Street was entered, probably through a laundry door accidentally left insecure. The intruder stole a high value jewellery item from a bedside table. The staff lunch room of a retail store in the Johnsonville Mall area was entered by an intruder during the afternoon and a

bunch of keys were stolen. The keys included a security key for the store and also personal keys for a house and vehicle of an employee. A house in Barrie Street was broken into via a smashed downstairs window at the rear of the property. The offender reached through and unlatched the window to

gain access. Two laptop computers and an Ipad were stolen. A blue Subaru Forester stationwagon parked overnight on the road near the corner of Earp Street and Frankmoore Avenue was stolen. A soft-sided truck trailer parked during the early hours of the morning at the corner of

Middleton Road and Westchester Drive East was broken into by slashing the soft sided canopy. At least 15 boxes of alcohol were taken. In Ngaio an orange-coloured Holden Colorado utility vehicle parked in the driveway of a house in Colway Street was entered through the insecure

canopy at the back. Several bags of clothing were stolen. In Crofton Downs a large building and hardware equipment store in Churchill Drive was entered by offenders who squeezed through a gap at the rear of the premises. Some cut lengths of timber were taken from the yard area.

Pulling the sweet tooth with hypnotherapy By Julia Czerwonatis

Louisa Pescini’s sweet tooth is undoubtedly one of her most charming features, yet it’s something that bothers her occasionally. When former Wellington Suburban Newspapers employee first heard about Daniel Steadman’s hypnotherapy and the prospect of curing her sugar addiction, Louisa was suspicious but also intrigued – so she signed up for a trial. “People always make jokes about hypnotising and all these big shows make you think it’s fake,” the artisan baker says. “I didn’t go into the session with a lot of expectations, but I wanted to try and see if it works for me.” Using a combination of hypnotherapy and electrical stimulation, Karori local Daniel helps people to help overcome addictions, anxieties and phobias. Hypnotising his clients, Daniel helps them to get into a state of deep relaxation. Here, the brain closes down much of the endless alerts and stimuli entering it from the outside world and is left free to concentrate on the words and ideas being imparted by the therapist. “I went to Daniel for one session,” Louisa says. “We talked about my ‘sugar experiences’ and when and how often I consume it. “We kept talking, and I thought I was conscious all the time and

aware of what was happening but then I suddenly snapped awake, and I realised that I was slouched down in the chair. “I could still remember the beginning of our conversation, but I couldn’t really recall what happened then,” Louisa explains. Louisa walked out of the session with Daniel not sure whether it worked or not but with enough will-power to try and fight the urge to nibble sweets. A month later, Wellington Sub-

urban Newspapers met Louisa again, and we talked about what has changed for her since she has been hypnotised. “I definitely eat less sugar than I used to,” she says. “My cookie drawer is full, I don’t have my usual hot chocolate in the morning anymore and don’t feel the need to eat something sweet. “It’s hard to tell for me whether it was hypnotherapy or the fact that I really wanted it to work, but I’m happy with the outcome.”

Memorial service for arts icon Peter Godfrey will be remembered in a Memorial Service at Wellington Cathedral of St Paul this Sunday. The Wellington arts icon died on September 28 at the age of 95. Peter was honoured with a Commander of the British Empire and an Arts Icon Award for his extraordinary contribution to music in this country, ever since his arrival here from England in 1958. He became Professor of Music at Auckland University, and led several music groups, particularly choral groups, for many years both in Auckland and in Wel-

lington. Peter conducted the National Youth Choir (now New Zealand Youth Choir), and was instrumental in the establishment of New Zealand Choral Federation. In the mid-80s, he was Director of Music at Wellington Cathedral of St Paul, and Music Director of the Orpheus Choir, and later Kapiti Chorale and Kapiti Chamber Choir, as well as St Michael’s Parish Church Choir. “Peter is remembered by countless musicians for his exceptional work in teaching the choral art and the beauty of making music, for his encouragement and sup-

port of young musicians, and for his tireless work in furthering the quality of choral singing in this country for over half a century,” Judy Berryman, Wellington Cathedral of St Paul spokesperson, says. “The memorial service will give those who knew him and sang in his choirs the opportunity to express their gratitude for what he has given to New Zealand.” Each of the Wellington area choirs will sing a favourite piece, tributes will be given by longtime friend and colleague Peter Averi, John Rosser, chair of the New Zealand Choral Federation,

and by Simon Bowden representing the Arts Foundation.  The service will be led by Digby Wilkinson, Dean of Wellington, starting at 5pm, on Sunday November 12. All are welcome to attend, and singers are invited to join the massed choirs in singing two of Peter’s favourite works – Wood’s Oculi Omnium and Brahms’ How Lovely are Thy Dwellings. They are required to attend the rehearsal at 3.30pm, and can obtain more information and music scores by emailing Judy Berryman judyb@top.net.nz.

Wellington celebrities support local charity for Depression Awareness Week With the beginning of Perinatal Anxiety and Depression Awareness Week last Sunday, keen runners raised funds for a Johnsonville charity PADA (Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Aotearoa). Twenty Wellingtonians, including former Porirua Mayor Nick Legget with family and former Wellington Mayor Kerry Prendergast, as well as Kath Bier from The Breeze, joined the fun run raising $6000 to date with donations still open. “Perinatal anxiety and depression is more common than most people realise,” Melanie Byrne from PADA explains. “As many as one in five expecting or new mums are affected, and up to one in 10 dads. Around 14,000 families across New Zealand are impacted every year. “New mothers are more at risk of a mental health crisis and admission to inpatient psychiatric services in the first weeks after birth than people at any other stage in their life,” Melanie says. Suicide is the leading cause of death for pregnant women in New Zealand. Anxiety disorders are also common and can occur alone or with depression.

Fathers and partners can also experience mental health problems around this time. “The aim of Awareness Week is to promote awareness of antenatal and postnatal anxiety and depression and encourage new and expectant parents to seek help early and eliminate the stigma surrounding this common health issue,” Melanie adds.  To support PADA, visit give. everydayhero.com/nz/PADA or find more information about their work on pada.nz.

Ohariu-based list MP Brett Hudson raises his profile after National leader Bill English named him spokesperson for ICT and Government Digital Services. “Before I entered Parliament in 2014, my background was in the Information and Communications Technology industry,” Brett says. “My 20 years in the industry were focused on helping people to solve problems through technology to improve their business performance. “Being based in Wellington, Government agencies featured strongly amongst the clients I worked with. I am looking forward to further developing those relationships in this role,” Brett continues. “The recent Technology Investment Network 200 report highlighted the importance of technology – particularly ICT – to New Zealand. “Technology businesses have now reached $10 billion annual global revenues for the first time and the ICT industry contributed 58.5 per cent of the overall revenue growth.” Brett says ICT had a major role to play in lifting productivity across the economy and across both the public and private sectors. “This spokesperson role is ideally

Gardening & OUTDOOR LIVING Wellingtonians trap to save their wildlife Predator Free Wellington took off about a year ago with Wellingtonians working towards the nationwide Predator Free by 2050. Several suburban groups established building support systems to build, distribute and set up rat, mouse and possum traps, and to monitor the numbers of caught predators. Predator Free Ngaio reports 443 members as of this month. “We are continuing to go really well with steady pressure on the predator population,” Jeremy Bloomfield, Predator Free Ngaio coordinator, says.

“It’s great that so many of you are getting into the routine of bait, set and check.” Since August last year, Jeremy and the Ngaio team have caught 1117 rats and 1059 mice. “That is a truly large number of predators that are no longer eating birds, lizards and invertebrates,” Jeremy says. Predator Free Ngaio can provide tunnel traps for people’s backyards. They need to be firmly seated on the ground with entrances kept clear and to be kept clean, well lured and maintained.

Beehives are buzzing the one million-mark The number of beehives in New Zealand is expected to hit the million-mark by Christmas, and a Dunedin apiary equipment supplier is urging those interested in hobby beekeeping to ensure they have the appropriate mentoring, education and support networks in place before they start out. Dunedin Beekeepers’ Club president Brian Pilley says in the past two or three years he had seen a big increase in interest in the hobby. The club has both commercial and hobbyist members from a wide range of backgrounds, and provides education and expertise for the less experienced. His company, Beeline Supplies Ltd, sells beekeeping equipment. “We won’t sell to people unless they have mentoring, a support network or belong to a club,” Brian says. “We are really conscious of people who have done a course, or get some hives and do not have a clue what they are doing.

Relax and enjoy your weekends Let us take care of your Lawns and Gardens “There is more to beekeeping than most people realise as it is not like keeping a cat or dog. Inexperienced beekeepers could inadvertently cause problems for other apiarists in the area, particularly with issues such as varroa mite and American foulbrood. “That could have a major impact on beekeepers so we have got to be responsible,” he says. The number of hives nationwide was about 460,000 about five years ago but it is expected to hit a million at the end of the year. Apiculture New Zealand non-commercial board member Paul Martin

says the number of beekeepers had been rising “exponentially” for the past 10 years. “Certainly, a huge proportion of those are hobbyists.” People were seeing the earning potential of the manuka honey “gold rush”, which had led to an increase in the demand for hives in the North Island. He agrees it was important hobbyists, some of whom would go on to become commercial apiarists, belonged to clubs for the support network. “In addition, as soon as they start selling commercially, the food safety regulations come through.”

Spring at St Benedict’s By Dan and Michele Taylor

St Benedict’s School in Khandallah saw a steady stream of patrons on Sunday, October 29, at their annual fundraising fair. The school aims to raise enough money to continue their playground redevelopment, and in addition to Sunday’s fair they have had raffles and calendars to assist them to their goal. Fair-goers were spoilt for choice with the range of food available, and stalls offered books, crafts, plants and more, which were eagerly snapped up. Children enjoyed the range of activities on offer, with the NZ Police demonstrating their dog’s skills and bravery to much interest from the gathered crowds. Organiser Kim Howard was very happy with the turn-out and thankful for the great weather, which brought people out to see what was on offer.

New database of imperial Land Wars soldiers Research from Victoria University of Wellington (VUW) has identified the names and details of 12,000 imperial soldiers who fought in the New Zealand Land Wars of the 1860s. The first official day of remembrance for the 19th century Land Wars was observed as Ra Maumahara on October 28. Ceremonies across the country recalled those who died in the wars and the tragic legacies of the conflicts. VUW’s Charlotte Macdonald and Rebecca Lenihan carried out their research with the help of records from The National Archives in London created by the British War Office. Charlotte Macdonald says it has taken a long time for the Land Wars to be officially recognised because of ignorance of history, and because they reveal a violent colonial story. “For iwi at the forefront of these events the significance of the wars and the purpose of remembering is clear,” she says. “It is their people who fought, and subsequent generations who have mourned the losses that followed. “But these events and their participants speak to all New Zealanders,” Charlotte continues. “The majority of those who

fought against iwi were the 12,000 or so British troops who were sent to serve in New Zealand in the 1860s. About one in five of these soldiers of the empire remained in New Zealand as “soldier settlers” and, as a result, a number of non-Maori families link to

the 1860s wars. Charlotte and Rebecca’s new database provides searchable public access to the names, regiments, and dates of service of soldiers. “The 1860s wars were bloody and harsh events,” Charlotte says.

Wellington City Councillors voted 12-2 to approve the proposed construction of a new building on Wellington’s waterfront. Mayor Justin Lester says the building would, if given final planning approval, be “an excellent addition that will add to the ambience of this rapidly-developing part of the waterfront”. The building was proposed by developer Willis Bond for ‘site 9’ on the North Kumutoto section of the waterfront, adjacent to the intersection of Customhouse Quay and Whitmore Street.

Summer heat – keep your dog Funeral safe when left in the car!Director Weather forecasters are predicting long hot spells just like the one we have been enjoying recently. Dogs appreciate this warmer weather too. Sunbathers soak up the sun on the deck and we are more likely to get them out or include them on those short trips in the car. Be aware though of the hidden risk of heatstroke. The temperature inside a parked car rises incredibly fast. In only 10 minutes a car parked in the sun, even with windows ajar, reaches over 39. Within half an hour that enclosed heat is an oven, raising the body temperature of an animal inside to the point where brain damage and even death are imminent. That doesn’t mean they should always stay home, but we advise taking pre-cautions – every time – to keep a precious pooch safe. Park in the shade. Reverse in if you can. Be aware the sun moves and recheck the site at least every 15 minutes. Wind ALL your windows down – at least some of the way. Secure your dog so they cannot jump out. For your security invest in those concertina

grids from The Warehouse or pet stores that fit easily into the open spaces and allow for a much bigger gap. Leave a bowl of water. A dog who is mildly stressed and hot can lower temperatures by drinking. Lay a dampened towel out. Dogs sweat through their pads – so keeping these cool with a damp towel in the dog’s travel crate, or on the vehicle floor is a great help. Tether the dog outside the vehicle. Position your dog in shade out of the range of foot traffic. This option only works if your dog is happy to be left like this in a new place and if not contrary to bylaws. Within Wellington City for example, dogs may not legally be left unattended on the street. If you do find a dog shut inside a car you can take action. Call the police and/ or the SPCA emergency hotline. Members of the public may not break into the vehicle – even with good cause, but the sooner action is taken the sooner the air can flow, and life may be saved.

Sports event goes local After 14 years, the annual Sport Wellington Stadium Sports Festival is evolving from its fixed location of the Westpac Stadium to a locallyled approach of a number of events held in the regions by local organisations. Due to the limit on numbers that could participate, every year more schools would register interest in attending than what the event could cater for. A total of 549 pupils from 20 different schools took part in

the 2017 event, but 54 schools applied. “We believe that we can increase the reach of the festival ‘have-a-go’ experience by encouraging and assisting the development of locally-led events, and therefore reach a greater number of students,” Patrick Simpson, Sport Wellington’s community sport manager, says. “If festival events are held locally, it will allow local sports organisations to form relationships with schools

in areas they are capable of reaching and engaging in, meaning there is more likelihood of children being able to continue their participation.” Although the 2017 festival was the last centralised event to be organised by Sport Wellington, it isn’t the end of the festivals. Lower Hutt already hold their own local event and Regional Public Health has consulted with Sport Wellington about holding a 2018 event in Porirua.

Sport Wellington encourages other areas within the region to do the same. Since the Festival was introduced in 2004, more than 7000 children and 140 primary schools have been involved. The Sports Festival gives sporting organisations an opportunity to showcase a range of sports to primary school children while creating a relationship with the participating schools to facilitate ongoing participation opportunities.

Ch ild ren often get the chance to try sports that they may not have experienced previously, but which they might want to play regularly either through school, KiwiSport programmes, or local sports clubs and other local organisations. “We have the model, the templates and the processes, and will assist new providers with the hand-over so that we can create the opportunity for local festivals to be held,” Patrick says.

New challengers for Burkes Cycles Speed League kick-off The Wellington Velodrome becomes the focus for track cycling in the capital again as the sixth season of the weekly Burkes Cycles Speed League promises another summer of exciting racing. The event is run by the Port Nicholson Poneke Cycling Club (PNP) and kicked off on November 5 at the Wellington Velodrome in Hataitai. “It’s going to be another stellar year for track cycling at the Wellington Velodrome,” Peter Mitchell, PNP track head, says. “I’m looking forward to some close competition and plenty of new faces using this great facility.” Every round features up to 20 races for ability-based grades, and overall prizes for age grades from under 11 right up to under 19s and seniors. Four-time women’s champion Ele Pepperell from Khandallah will return, hoping to use her consistent place-getting to earn a further Champion System winner’s jersey. Ele just scraped together enough points to nab last year’s title on the final weekend of racing after early competition leader Lisa Hunkin dropped out of the running following a heavy crash in February. Lisa is back but this established duo may see previously unheralded rivals emerge from the new women’s coaching programme

which was set up in October and has attracted a large number of participants. The men’s contest, backed by Coffee Supreme, is wide open with Tawa’s Nick Warren aiming to defend his title but it will be

a big ask with long time rivals Grant Perry, Matt Sharland and Mike Thomas, plus back-in-form sprinter Lee Evans, keen to take it off his hands. Craigs Investment Partners sponsor a new under 19s cate-

Bowls pair jubilant winners at mixed champs The first Bowls Wellington centre title was up for grabs in October at the Bowls Specialists Mixed Pairs tournament. The event attracted 106 teams from around the Wellington region and beyond. The finals were held at the Johnsonville Bowling Club on Labour Weekend. National bowls legend, 82-yearold Judy Howat of Lyall Bay, and Johnsonville’s Brent Stubbins took out the first place. In the final Judy and Brent met the talented pair of Tanya Wheeler and Scott Roddick from Eastbourne in a tense match that went to the wire. Judy and Brent managed a two on the last end to overtake Tanya and Scott’s one-point lead, winning the match 19-18. The final lived up to all expectations and was played in front of an appreciative crowd of bowling enthusiasts. This was Judy’s third win of this event and Brent’s second, having also won it last year. Remarkably, the pair went through the tournament unbeaten with nine straight wins. Judy showed her usual determi-

gory, which should see strong competition amongst the capital’s top youth riders. Henry Levett will be gunning for the boy’s title after a blistering winter during which he won the PNP Criterium Series.

His training partner Liam Cooper will be hot on his heels however, as will fast-finisher Louis Hodgkinson from Khandallah, while Grace Saywell will be gunning for the girl’s under 19s title.

Sports talk

with Jacob Page

RLWC finds its niche The Rugby League World Cup seems to have found its groove but it’s unclear if it can reach the lofty heights organisers hope. I went to the Kiwis versus Scotland game over the weekend and while the 74-6 rout was predictable, there certainly was a decent atmosphere mixed in with some empty seats as well. Hamilton hosted a great atmosphere for the Tonga versus Samoa clash. Despite the unrest between the two supporter bases in the lead up to the game, the crowd participation roared through the screen proving that their is a good level of interest. The RLWC is a lot like other minnow sports in that only three teams look realistically capable of winning the title. The Kiwis, Kangaroos or England look most likely with Tonga given an outside

chance given the immense amount of NRL talent they have on their books. With so few genuine chances, you’re set to see a fair number of mismatches in pool play which can turn off the casual fan. The tournament seems to be far more engaging to watch when played in Australia and New Zealand as opposed to the United Kingdom as it seems to galvanise the sporting public of Australasia more. Based on what I have seen, it will be yet another Kiwis vs Kangaroos final. Rugby league is not yet a global game and that’s clear by the number of players using tenuous family blood lines to play for lesser nations. Despite a predictable finish, at least the tournament has captured the imagination of a sporting public eager for an extended season.
