Ngaio artist Justine Turnbull was the winner of the “People’s Choice” award in the National Portrait Gallery’s biennial exhibition. The focus was painted portraits of New Zealanders, by New Zealanders. While the winner of the Adam Portraiture Award was Logan Moffat for his portrait `Elam’, the People’s Choice award, which carries a $2500 prize was, for Justine, an affirmation of the choices she has made stylistically during the last couple of years. Continued on page 2. Justine Turnbull, in her studio, with her as-yet untitled and unfinished portrait of her son, Leo.

Public tribute to work of Ngaio artist Continued from page 1. “It’s given me a clear direction, an endorsement, for my work.” Justine has just finished a Master’s degree in Fine Art and Painting from Otago University, following on from her original degree in ceramic art, done some two decades ago. She has worked as a potter and a tutor but painting, she says, “became expedient timewise after having children”. Her painting, called Reckoning, is of her teenage daughter and draws on the tradition of Baroque portraiture. “It’s quiet, but it does hint at an agitation under the

surface.” The catalogue quotes Justine’s words, which describe it as being inspired by the times of summation in our lives, “when we reap the harvest of our choices and a new beginning emerges from the past”. Gallery staff said they felt from early on she was in the running for the People’s Choice award, as early in the exhibition, which opened on March 1, there were several people interested in purchasing it.  The Wellington exhibition closed on May 27, but from July 3 it will be on tour to Auckland, Stratford and Blenheim.

Plunket acknowledges errors Last week, Plunket began a community consultation process to help them better understand the needs of Karori families with children under five years old, and to discuss the future of the Karori crèche. Radha Balakrishnan, Plunket’s Chief of Strategy and Performance, says the consultation is an opportunity to hear from hundreds of young families in Karori so Plunket can be sure it is delivering the services they need most, saying Plunket appreciated they should have engaged differently about the crèche. “In March this year we made the difficult decision to close the Karori Plunket crèche. We heard a variety of views, ideas and questions from Karori families. Some people understood why we had made this difficult decision, and others strongly felt the crèche should stay.” “Local relationships are vital to Plunket. We hope this consultation process shows our commitment to better working with

Radha Balakrishnan, Plunket’s chief of strategy and performance.

the community and listening so that together we get the best outcomes for the diverse Karori community, and for Plunket.” She says that to make good decisions about Plunket’s future community services, including the crèche, and with more than 700 Karori families currently enrolled with them, it was important they get the full picture.

“We are committed to making fair and informed decisions that involve everyone that cares about families. She says the consultation was being facilitated by an independent contractor, Mary–Jane Rivers, who has had extensive experience in community engagement, to ensure a fair and balanced process. “It is being overseen by a community advisory group made up of Plunket volunteers and staff as well as Plunket service users, a member of the crèche committee, a representative from the Karori Association residents’ group and the Karori Community Centre.” Consultation runs from June 7-25 and Plunket expects to share consultation outcomes and decisions with the Karori community in early August. There will be one-on-one interviews and a number of ways families and others in the community can take part, including an online survey and workshop sessions.

Information is also available on Plunket’s website, and the Karori Plunket Facebook page will be available for people to ask questions and keep updated on progress. Plunket will receive a report at the end of the consultation identifying the needs of young families in Karori, including how and where they think Plunket could help meet those needs. “Guided by our strategy, The Journey Towards Generational Change, Plunket will be able to use what we have learned from the community to make decision about the future of our services, including the crèche,” Radha says. Anyone in Karori who cares about the wellbeing of families with young children is invited to take part in the consultation.  More information can be found on Plunket’s website: How to participate in the Karori Under 5s Plunket consultation, 7 - 25 June 2018.

School celebrates harmony, neighbourliness


inbrief news Students prepare for Camelot Onslow College students are deep into rehearsal mode for what director Sarah Delahunty describes as a “slightly different take” on the traditional story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.  Camelot will run from Wednesday June 20 to Saturday June 23, with performances starting at 7.30pm at Onslow College. Tickets are $17 for adults and $12 for students and bookings can be made by ringing 478 8189.

Park and Ride changes

St Brigid’s school children, years five and six, have played a key part in the naming of the Housing New Zealand apartments being completed next to their school. On Thursday last week HNZ came to the Johnsonville school to announce the winning name - Haumaru -(meaning harmony) and treated the children to a wonderful afternoon tea after a small ceremony acknowledging the finalists and announcing the winner. Principal Linda Birch told the children there had been many wonderful ideas in the work they had done to help design a logo and a motto. Staff had forwarded the top 10 to HNZ and drawn together the children’s ideas in their

own contribution as well. “So that made 11 entries,” she said. She reminded them of St Brigid’s prayer for harmony which includes the words: “You were a woman of peace. You brought harmony where there was conflict.” Staff could see many of the children’s contributions echoed those sentiments and their suggestion was the Maori word for harmony – Haumaru. HNZ felt that word summed up all the contributions, deciding to give that name to their 20-unit development on the corner of Phillip Street and Frankmoore Avenue. And they have also designed a postcard which includes many of the children’s designs and ideas. It will be distributed to some 200 homes in the area, explaining the new name and the reason for the choice.

Park and Ride carparks are to be more strongly monitored. The Greater Wellington Regional Council will develop a mandate to clamp or remove offending vehicles with a fine of up to $350. However, during an educational period, all offenders will receive a warning unless the vehicle is parked dangerously or blocking other users. A GWRC spokesperson says a ticket with no consequences is the best way to get a behaviour change. “However, if people are grossly inconsiderate, or ignore the warning … we will be forced to escalate to clamping or towing.” The carparks will be strictly restricted to people using Metlink bus or rail services on the day of parking.

Matariki celebration

Haumaru, a place of harmony. The new name of this Housing New Zealand development has been drawn from contributions of children and staff at St Brigid’s school, next door.

Spokesperson Renee Martin says it is an exciting way to keep the community truly informed and to initiate and

On Friday June 29, from 6 - 10pm, Wellington City Council is staging its first ever Ahi Kā, a festival of fire and light, celebrating renewal and belonging. The Nga Wai Pīata (Streams of Light) opening procession will feature children from seven regional schools, bearing hand-made light sculptures of creatures from land and sea. There will be poi workshops, toasted marshmallows around the fires, and storytelling and waiata near the symbolic Ahi Kā bonfire sculpture.   Whairepo Lagoon will become a fiery reflection of the Seven Sisters Matariki constellation, known as Pleiades, while Te Papa will feature Oneone, a work of living art, featuring digital cinema and a lone dancer on the water.

Diabetes in their sights By Glenise Dreaver

Johnsonville Lions are setting up one of their key projects for the coming 12 months - a Type 2 Diabetes Awareness programme. Project manager Jim Ng and incoming president Ross Brown have a particular interest in this – Ross is a diabetic, as is Jim’s wife. They have also lost two club members to this disease in recent months. And it is one of the strategic directions chosen by Lions International in its 100th year. “It’s a major strategy to help the human race,” says Jim. “It’s been calculated that 53 per cent of the world’s population may have diabetes and many don’t even know they have it.” (Diabetes 1 is a genetic condition. While there can be a genetic predisposition to Diabetes 2, it is more closely related to lifestyle choices.) Outgoing District Governor rex Bullard was the one who

challenged the Johnsonville club to be one of the first to run a campaign to reduce this quite common – and unnecessary cause of premature death. And Jim says he now has a ‘bee in his bonnet’ about it. “We want our club to be a catalyst for the formation of a local support group,” he says. That would enable sufferers to share experiences, discuss medication and hopefully, support each other with exercise programmes. Ross points out that the disease “ups your chances” of having a heart attack. “And it can cause blindness and gangrene and amputation,” he says. “We want to catch people who are pre-diabetic. Diabetes 2 can be delayed if people know they have that.” “You can have a full life with it,” he says citing his father, who had it but lived to a very active 94. Ross has his disease under control with strict diet but says

it’s hard. “I love food!” That’s why, he says, a support group will be a real milestone. “People can support each other.” The first step is a public and

information meeting in the Johnsonville Community Centre on July 18 at 7pm, with the speaker being Heather Verry, the CEO of Diabetes NZ.

Success for Wadestown singer By Glenise Dreaver

More curtains sought Wellington Curtain Bank is asking for help to meet demand for curtains for low-income homes this winter. “We need more curtains donated before the end of winter, to ensure we have enough to go around,” says Healthy Homes Manager Miranda Struthers. Wellington Curtain Bank upcycles curtains from donated fabric and curtains, tailoring them for specific windows, and lining them for more effective insulation. Donations of clean, mould-free curtains can be made at Sustainability Trust’s EcoCentre in Forresters Lane, off Tory Street, or at their drop-off points in Kilbirnie, Lower Hutt, Porirua and Otaki.

Wadestown soprano Laura Loach is celebrating her Queen’s Birthday Weekend win in the Christchurch region of the Dame Malvina Major Aria Competition. Laura, sang Puccini’s Senza Mamma in the final and before announcing the winner’s name, Judge Merlyn Quaife had this to say about the top result: “This singer’s performance gave me goosebumps.” There were 17 singers in the semi-finals and nine finalists vying for the $5000 prize. Laura’s next contest is in Rotorua, in the $20,000 New Zealand aria competition on the weekend of October 25-28. Her teacher of 11 years, Flora

Edwards, is “thrilled”. “I’ve been with her since I started uni,” she says. Laura holds a Bachelor of Music and a Post Graduate Diploma in Music from Victoria University and a Diploma of Teaching from Massey. As well as singing in her own right she teaches singing, and teaching drama to special needs students at Mana College in Porirua. She also directs plays in Wellington theatres. She has roles in the upcoming performances of Orfeo and in Madam Butterfly with Eternity Opera. With plans to study in the UK and Europe in 2019 the prize money will be very useful, she says.

Karori Lions Club was the main fundraiser for this new plant conservation laboratory for the Otari Native Botanic Garden and Wilton’s Bush Reserve. It was craned in on Thursday June 7. PHOTO supplied.

In September 2017, the Karori Lions Club approached the Otari Native Botanic Garden and Wilton’s Bush Reserve about funding a project. It was the club’s aim to celebrate Lions International centenary year through a Centennial Legacy Project. The two organisations agreed that a plant conservation laboratory suited requirements. With the Lions contribution of $72,000 plus donations from other contributors the deed was done. The portacom Plant Conservation Laboratory, which has just been craned in, means that Otari now

has a place for specialised research equipment enabling them to process, store and germinate seed, pollen, cuttings and embryos. Manager Rewi Elliot says the decision to buy new equipment to be housed in a dedicated facility means they now have space for incubators, freezers, ovens and laminar flow cabinets. “And it enables us to create a sterile environment which is essential for plant conservation,” he says. Added advantages of the Portacom included its mobility and ease of erection. There will be research into seed storage behaviour of different kinds of seeds, assessing their viability and establishing germination pro-

tocols for them. “It will also enable us to store plant germplasm in the long term through seed banking, cryopreservation and tissue culture.” “Understanding pollen viability will also enable us to collect and store pollen which can be used to pollinate individual trees,” he says. Among many other advantages, it will also provide them with opportunities to harvest pollen from wild populations and/or pollinate individuals in the wild where natural reproduction is no longer occurring, he said. The lab will also be used for some duplicate/back up storage of seed from the New Zealand Indigenous Flora Seed Bank.

YIP ‘Second to none’ Service Real Estate Extraordinaire William YIP of Harcourts always aims to put his clients first, in a business model which ensures quality service to achieve a fantastic sale result. Often Real Estate Agents sign up a client and leave them to do everything themselves, and only start working when the sign goes up. “We start working for our clients way before they are thinking of selling,” William said. His aim is to ensure no client undersells their biggest asset. “To achieve this, we provide the most comprehensive strategy that doesn’t cut any corners,” he said. That way when an offer comes in, you know you’ve covered everything and that is the best possible price.” He said even once his clients’ houses are sold, his post-market support is ‘second to none’.

“We will help you with your relocation, recycle any excess furnishings to local charities, sell any items on your behalf, and rubbish removal is always free.” William YIP’s team has also been running their own community grants for the last two years and have donated significant time, money and support to the local community. William said his team believes in ‘no regrets’ and in doing the best possible job in preparation and marketing, you will get the best possible price in the market. So when they get an offer they know no corners have been cut in the process. “Choosing to work with a comprehensive team like us is your insurance against underselling your biggest asset. Plus it will be easier for you and you will also be supporting the local community as well.”

Warming our kids with funds


World Refugee Day Nisa and ChangeMakers Refugee Forum, in collaboration with Wellington City Council, are joining to celebrate World Refugee Day on June 20. The celebration is open to all and will showcase the contributions former refugees make to our community, as well as highlighting Wellingtonians who are actively doing great work in the field. The event starts at 5.30pm at the National Portrait Gallery. There will be an exhibition by the Auckland Resettled Community Coalition (ARCC)  with photographs from Nando Azevedo, presenting former refugee experiences through the medium of portrait photography.

Yovela Li with the cheque that William Yip, at right, has donated to start her fundraiser for warm clothing for Wellington Children’s Hospital. PHOTO supplied.

As we brace ourselves for a cold winter, sometimes it is easy to forget about those in need. Nineyear-old Yovela Li has begun her own campaign to source warm clothes for Wellington Children’s Hospital (WCH). Having been born four-and-half weeks prematurely, she says she was very well looked after during her two-week stay at WCH, and would love to return the favour by helping them with their fundraising efforts. The aim is to raise funds to purchase 500 sets of pyjamas, and

if that goal is exceeded, the money will be used to provide additional blankets and warm socks. After that, any extra money will be donated to WCH. Supported by local real estate agent WilliamYip, Yovela is well under way. “When Yovela, approached me to help her structure her fundraising and mentor her through her first campaign, I jumped at the opportunity. “A heart of gratitude and a self-less desire to help others is a core part of our business and

is something we all must support and nurture,” says William. Not only has he supported her with the campaign, he has also fronted up with the first $2000 towards the cause and is encouraging other members of the community to help where they can. Warm our Kids will provide valuable resources to ensure all small patients at the hospital have a warm and comfortable stay.  You can make a donation at warm-our-kids

Other side of the coin? Dear Editor, In the recent article on Peter Dunne’s award (Independent Herald, May 23 p 3) you forget to mention the other side of his ‘service’. That in warming his parliamentary seat in a done deal with National, and voting with them, he enabled

some very repulsive legislation to be put through such as the 90 day probation periods, TPP preparatory legislation, punitive social welfare sanctions etc – in effect selling his own constituents down the river. So now he gets his gong and the rest of us have to put up with these

results. To quote someone – “it’s about what you would expect from a politician like him”. Peter Sullivan, Johnsonville

More accommodation – and bird sanctuary on the Remutaka Cycle Trail If you’re looking for handy accommodation midway on the Rimutaka Cycle Trail, Te Rakau Bird Sanctuary is perfect! Stay in character cabins in the form of self-contained converted railway carriages and make a

complete nature weekend of it. The Sanctuary is on 13.6 hectares and is a refuge for the many native birds that frequent the garden and trees year round. Owners Dougal and Denise MacKenzie have

identified tui, bellbirds, kereru, fantails, kingfishers, grey warblers, shining cuckoo, grey heron, kahu, karearea,ducks, bitterns, pukeko and dabchicks at various times as well as some common introduced garden birds.

Zealand’s steepest railway line from 1878 to 1955. ‘Fell’ brake-van F 210 arrived in Featherston in 1995 and was also restored by Society members.

The Society won awards for the restoration of H 199 and F 210, and in 1995 the Museum was voted the ‘Best Heritage Experience’ at the Wellington Tourism Awards.

The Gladstone Inn – Warm, cosy, and known for great food It’s not often you can step inside a pub that first opened its doors in 1871…but at the historic Gladstone Inn you most certainly can. “The Gladdy” as it’s locally known started life as a ferry house beside the Ruamahanga River, way back when a horse and cart were

the only mode of transport. Although,the original building burnt down in 1934, and the building you’ll find today has gone through various transformations, you’ll still find the same welcoming, country hospitality from hosts Ray and Lisa. You’ll also find a

fresh, seasonal and exciting menu, a diverse offering of beers, and some of the best of local Gladstone wines. With both a riverside garden bar, and indoor dining with an open fire the Gladdy is a great destination in any season. We’ll see you soon.

Fashion with meaning and artisan flair Calling all fashion upcyclers! The Oversew Fashion Awards 2018 will be held at the Carterton Events Centre at 7pm on Saturday July 21, with a matinee at 2pm on Sunday July 22. It is New Zealand’s only upcycled Fashion Awards Show and design competition, now in its sixth year. Entrants are invited to submit entries which use at least 80 percent pre-worn clothing and with zero waste in mind. This makes for a very exciting brief. The aim is to dispel the myth that upcycled fashion is ‘crafty’. It’s actually artisanal, a viable part of the fashion business competing with the best of fashion and design, the future of the way we dress. It’s also wearable fashion that celebrates individual style. This year the awards are named ‘New Beginnings’. New categories include Leisure, Streetstyle, Night life and Showstoppers, with prizes in every category, including menswear and mini collections. Strong styling, tight choreography, inspiring music and a cast of high calibre models makes for a not-to-be missed opportunity

Want to make a difference? Volunteers are the heart of Youthline, and play an essential role in making sure we are able to deliver on our mission. Volunteering at Youthline looks and feels different for everyone. We have

some very defined pathways for those interested in counselling, youth work and events, but we are equally interested in volunteers seeking other skills-based or general volunteer roles.


Join the Scouting Adventure as a volunteer leader! Go to to find a group near you, or call 0800 SCOUTS. #SCOUTSNZ

Huntleigh Home thanks its dedicated volunteers Huntleigh Home volunteer Brian Hayes loves nothing more than taking elders out for a drive. “It can be difficult for elders to search out ways to connect with others, but when they’re out and about with me in the van, they’re all looking at flowers, the colours of rocks on cliffs, planes landing and all that sort of thing, which just naturally stimulates conversations,” he explains. “I love seeing the elders get lost in the moment together, and later, they‘ll all know the names of the beaches and places they’ve been, and be able to share those memories, which is great.” This Volunteer Awareness Week, Karori’s Huntleigh Home is saying thanks to dedicated volunteers like Brian. Manager Tim Levchenko-Scott says their devoted efforts make a big difference in residents’ lives. “We’re so lucky to have such a motivated, talented, lovely group of volunteers here at Huntleigh – the home just wouldn’t be the same without them,” he says. “It’s thanks to them that we’re able to offer residents so much choice and variety in their day-to-day lives, and enjoy so many connections with the wider community.”

“To our volunteers, we want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You are such key part of what makes Huntleigh the lively, fun place that it is,” says Tim. When Brian is not spending time outdoors with Huntleigh’s elders, he can often be found entertaining them with his piano accordion in the home’s dining room. He says he’s found helping elders thrive in their golden years extremely rewarding and he would encourage anyone thinking of becoming a volunteer to give it a try. “When you retire, life changes, but most people still want to get out and about, feel a part of the community and enjoy life – and so they should, all of the residents here have earned it. “As a volunteer, you get to support the staff to give the residents more of those kinds of opportunities, and you can tell the residents love it, which is extremely rewarding. So I’d definitely tell others give it a go, you won’t regret it!”  Enliven’s Huntleigh Home in Karori offers rest home and hospital care, as well as respite, health recovery care and a day programme.

Local rider bound It’s all go at JRC for Switzerland The Johnsonville Rugby Club reports a fantastic turnout for the annual Old Timers day and night on Saturday June 2. The club was reported to be pumping and the 98 Swindale Champions and Women’s Team were well represented on the day. Three notable Old Timers were there, including the club patron Frank Tunley, who had played for all grades through to senior 2nd from 1950-70. The three former players reminisced, Frank saying his most memorable match was playing in the seniors “when we beat Petone”. And he has some words of wisdom for current players: “Stick with your club.” Laifa Ta’ala played in the premier grade from their first year, 1994, until 2005. He remembers playing against MSP in the

last game in the 1998 Swindale Shield. “We won the game and the shield.” And he echoes Frank’s advice about loyalty. “Once a Johnsonville supporter, always a Johnsonville supporter.” Chris Osbourne, also known as Blink, played for the club for 27 years, through the age grades and in the Senior 3rds. He has particular memories of playing J1s and having to win to go up to Senior 3rds. Kevin Rowe and he had run on with 20 minutes to go. “Kevin did the hard yards and I got winning try.” Once again, the B’s had a terrific last minute win on Saturday, getting seventh place in the Harper Lock Shield. And the Premiers had another bad day at the office, going down heavily in the Ash Pointon Cup.

Maxwell Wickens of Karori, a Year 13 student from Wellington College, is one of six U19 junior men bound for the UCI MTB XC World championships in Switzerland in early September. Cycling New Zealand has selected him in the national team to ride in the end-ofseason race in Lenzerheide in the first week of September. Max has competed in several different styles of riding in the five years since joining his College MTB Club, but the past 18 months has seen him focusing on the cross country discipline. He has competed locally and also represented Wellington’s mountain bike club PNP (Port Nicholson Poneke). He currently holds the club’s ‘Most Improved Rider’ Cup and has raced cross country at national and Oceania levels. PNP MTB runs a spring series consisting

of five races on local trails which prove a great season opener, especially if riders are wanting to move into competing at other regional and national races. Wellington has a wide array of free mountain bike trails, from the famous Makara Peak to Mount Victoria, all no more than 10 minutes from the CBD. In preparation for world championships, Max will travel with Cycling New Zealand to Canada to compete in races in Quebec City and Ontario. It has long been Max’s goal to race in Europe. He hopes to join a factory race team to compete in the World Cup series along with the such elite riders as New Zealand’s Anton Cooper and Sam Gaze.  Max is raising funds on Givealittle to help pay for his Swiss trip travel costs:

The generational sporting hero There’s something about the players of your youth that seems to make it difficult to be objective. That debate of the greatest ever in a chosen sport is always subjective and depends on the impact that player had on you and what period of life you were in. Generally, the younger and more impressionable you are, the more fondly you remember a player. That classic debate is raging in America as the NBA’s current best player, LeBron James loses another finals series to the Golden State Warriors. Those over 30 generally believe Michael Jordan is the best basketballer ever, based on his impact, spectacular play and undefeated 6-0 finals record in the 1990s with the Chicago Bulls. Jordan’s six rings are held up and the reason LeBron is, at best, No 2’s because, despite him having most in-game statistics

in his favour, he only has three championships in nine finals appearances. For me, growing up, my three favourite sportsmen were Black Cap veteran Chris Harris, All Black first-five Andrew Mehrtens and Canterbury rugby captain Todd Blackadder. All three were incredibly reliable but, in my more realistic moments, each had their weaknesses. Harris never was a test match regular, Mehrtens wasn’t a great defender and Blackadder had a mediocre All Black career. However each of them were instrumental in me loving sport. The same will be happening with kids looking at Beauden Barrett, Ross Taylor and Kieran Read. It’s simply a generational thing. There’s no right or wrong answer, only fodder for friendly debates for years to come.
