The Minister of Education. Chris Hipkins, chose Crofton Downs School to present a $46m policy announcement last Friday. The school is one of 19 to benefit from 58 classrooms to be delivered to schools nationwide. Crofton Downs, with its current crowding issues and impending school roll growth, will receive two of the new classrooms. Continued on page 2.

Crofton Downs School benefits from ministry policy Continued from page 1. There was secrecy surrounding the visit, with TV1 and the Independent Herald the only media notified and even principal Toby Stokes in the dark. “Though we were hoping the Minister was going to talk about us,” he says. They had two weeks to prepare though and the school kapahaka group was waiting at the gate to welcome the minister, escorted by Ohariu MP Greg O’Connor and two board members. Chris Hipkins made his prime-time TV1 news announcement before an assembly of senior school children, their teachers and board members. Toby said he felt they may have been selected because of the work they had done with the ministry identifying the issues of growth in an already full school. “We have young families moving in and the new Silverstream development is right in our zone. “It’s nice to know they have been listening to our concerns.”

Minister of Education Chris Hipkins immediately realised he’d just got great advice from an expert, young chess player Luke Bier. “You’ve got to hold the centre!” PHOTO: Glenise Dreaver

The board must now decide where the rooms will go. Toby expects that the successful refurbishments of their older buildings along Modern Learning Environ-

ment principles will inform the new design. Insulation and noise dampening is making a real difference in the larger spaces he says, along with dou-

ble underlay on the floors wh ich younger ch ild ren use for d iscover y play. Amesbury School in Churton Park will also benefit with 200 additional student spaces.

Ground-breaking work at medical centre By Glenise Dreaver

Johnsonville Medical Centre’s successful implementation of Health Care Home, a more effective national model of primary healthcare for New Zealand, is to be recognised tomorrow by a visit from the Minister of Health Dr David Clark. He is acknowledging the 16 practices that have achieved Health Care Home certification, and Johnsonville was

one of the first to reach the milestone. The initiative, funded jointly by Capital and Coast District Health Board and Tu Ora Compass Health Public Health Organisation, has, says the centre’s business manager Rob Stewart, already made huge differences that are “really tangible” to patients. “Patients ring in the morning needing to be seen but after talking to a doctor on the phone, they can make a plan.

“Quite a few of them don’t actually need to come in and that’s so much more time and cost efficient for all,” he says. Better use of space, and the provision of dedicated staff, has cut their ratio of lost calls by 80 per cent, and the average answer time down to just 13 seconds. Standardisation of the layout of doctors’ rooms has also enabled them to work with less interruption, and the creation of new roles in the practice is

helping nurses to spend more time with patients, Rob says. He adds that these are just some of a raft of changes at the practice, and not only are the efficiencies reflected there, but a lower number of patients are having to go to Emergency Departments for treatment. ‘The success of Health Care Home comes down to the commitment of our team to change the way we work, with a focus on each patient’s experience across the health system.’

Prolific local author breaks new ground with book By Glenise Dreaver

Kevin Boon of Johnsonville has written numerous books. “Well over one hundred” he says. That’s not boasting, just a fact. Most of his writing is for children and teenagers and his books and series are found in libraries country-wide, especially school libraries. In 2006, he won the prestigious New Zealand Library Association’s ‘Elsie Locke’ award for his series Developments in New Zealand History. Kevin is pleased with his recently-published novel Toby’s Endeavour Voyage. Kevin gets into the skin of an imaginary cabin boy and relates his eye-witness adventures on Captain Cook’s voyage aboard the Endeavour, a style often called ‘creative non-fiction’. London publisher Olympia Publishing accepted his book from among many and Kevin says this means access to international markets where Cook is “big”. That includes Australia, Britain and the Pacific Islands. “So they printed over 2000 copies.” Big runs like that are too risky in new Zealand alone, with the school library market now virtually “non-existent” and independent bookshops fast disappearing. “I read that over 400 schools no longer have school libraries,” he says. Kevin has also written plays for adults and scripts for radio and television, including the popular serial Close to Home. He long combined writing with teaching at numerous schools in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom. He was also principal

inbrief news Performance of requiem Wellington chamber choir Nota Bene will be presenting what a spokesperson describes as one of the loveliest and most moving Requiems in the repertoire. Fauré originally composed his celebrated Requiem for a small group of instruments. Nota Bene will explore this version with the musicians of the Chiesa Ensemble which is smaller in scale than the full-orchestra version but no less powerful for that. It has Puccini’s eloquent but very short Requiem set alongside it. The ensemble will also perform Purcell’s Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary. Their concert will be held at 3pm, Sunday July 8 at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, in Wellington. Tickets are $30/$20 and children free and are available from Eventfinda and at the door.

Trees for babies To celebrate the arrival of the Prime Minister’s new baby, conservation charity Trees That Count has launched Trees for Kiwi Babies - a gifting registry to acknowledge the birth of every Kiwi baby born in 2018. Donations to Trees for Kiwi Babies will go towards community native tree planting projects to be planted during Matariki 2019. Trees That Count will work with community planting groups throughout New Zealand to identify planting locations and will invite Kiwi parents and their babies born in 2018, who will then be turning one, to come along and plant a native tree.

at Cardinal McKeefry and Bellevue schools, retiring in 2003. One of his recent - and special – books covers a gap spotted by his late wife Margaret, a volunteer at Katherine Mansfield’s Birthplace. She often regretted the inacces-

sibility of Katherine’s work for young people, so Kevin produced a child-friendly version of The Dolls’ House, with larger print and the help of an excellent illustrator. “That was done in Margaret’s memory,” he says. More ideas are bubbling.

Toby may be followed by another cabin boy on The Victory with Admiral Lord Nelson at Trafalgar. There could well be a book about Katherine’s father, Sir Harold Beauchamp. “So there is little chance of me becoming bored.” he said.

inbrief news Ambitious talks with EU Last Thursday in Wellington, EU Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmström and New Zealand’s Minister for Trade and Export Growth David Parker officially launched negotiations for an ambitious trade agreement. The negotiations will aim at removing barriers to trade in goods and services, as well as developing trade rules to make trade easier and more sustainable. Cecilia Malmström said the negotiations were an important milestone in working towards a win-win agreement. “This agreement is an excellent opportunity to set ambitious common rules and shape globalisation, making trade easier while safeguarding sustainable development. We can lead by example.”

Fifty-year milestone for Onslow Historical Society By Glenise Dreaver

Memorial walk Rain or shine, there will be an hour-long walk of remembrance for Alexander Turnbull and the gift of his library to the people of New Zealand, from 9.30am tomorrow, Thursday morning. Members of the public are most welcome to join in the walk from the National Library to Parliament, and from there to the Turnbull family headstone at Bolton Street Cemetery. The walkers will then go back to Turnbull House on Bowen Street and memorial wreaths will be laid along the way.

Lamingtons for good cause Countdown bakers have started baking up a storm to help more than 60,000 New Zealanders who suffer from dementia and Alzheimer’s. For every pack of lamingtons sold at Countdown until July 22, twenty cents will be donated to Alzheimers New Zealand. Last year’s lamington appeal raised more than $15,000 to support the charity. This year money raised through the sale of lamingtons will be used to support Alzheimers New Zealand’s national flagship programmes such as Dementia Friends, which encourages Kiwis to take part in a 20-minute online programme to raise awareness of the disease and support people living with dementia in their local communities.  The iconic treats are on sale at Countdown for $4 each or two packs for $7.

The Onslow Historical Society is marking its 50th year. From a gathering of around 20 people in 1968 and peaking membership at nearly 300 is something to celebrate. Former president Judy Siers remembers the years and one major battle fought and won. Very clearly. C r e a t i n g t h e s o c iety’s home in the former Khandallah Telephone Exchange, scheduled for demolition in the 1980s, was their biggest challenge and the result their greatest achievement. The old Post and Telegraph Department, replacing manual systems with digital, were demolishing 1920’s exchanges all through the country. In Khandallah Road they advertised for tenders, spotted by society member Julie Bremner. “She was the catalyst, she made phone calls, to me and the society’s architect Jim Bentall,” says Judy. The society wanted to give the building a reuse, creating an historic working telephone exchange museum, maintaining the

equipment in situ. “It was the only one left intact,’’ says Judy. They won bitter and legal battles, finally registering it with the-then NZ Historic Places Trust until success! Then they found that P and T had partially demolished the equipment, stripping the copper for recycling, “destroying the dream”. “It was a scandal!” says Judy, the emotions of that time clearly still real. “We don’t talk about it very much.” The solid concrete building and the added quake -proofing done as they took over in 1990 now provides a home for the society at a peppercorn rental from Chorus. Judy remembers the battle as “the golden years”. The camaraderie was infectious, we felt progressive and so productive.” The next move, from 2018 on is to further cement the society, she says, to build membership and secure new sponsors to preserve Onslow’s heritage. To mark the 50 years, one of the society’s goals is to publish the story of KATE in their magazine The Onslow Historian.

New street name welcomed The pihipihi, one of New Zealand’s most common native birds, has for the first time been recognised in a street name, gracing a right-of-way in Crofton Downs new subdivision off Silverstream Road. It will now be named Pihipihi Way, following a decision by Wellington City Council’s

Regulatory Processes Committee last week. Pihipihi is also known as the silvereye or waxeye. The committee followed the suggestion of the Ngaio Crofton Downs Residents’ Association, which wants new streets named after native birds and plants.

“Bird names are at the top as these are particularly relevant in Crofton Downs, which has been a prominent leader in establishing predator-free suburbs,” the association said in its submission. Council staff recommended the name Pihipihi Way, which was supported by iwi.

What’s the Best Computer for You?

EMERGENCY SERVICE

Back It Up If You Want to Keep It Last time I talked about storage drives – Hard Disk drives and Solid State drives where your files, photos, music and operating system are kept. We all know that these will both fail at some stage so it’s vital to have all this stuff on a separate backup. Viruses and ransomware can also enter your computer from internet browsing and email and turn all your files into illegible garbage. If you have a good backup then you won’t need to worry but if you have a poor backup or no backup, then sadly everything on your computer may be gone – forever. So how do you back up? There are several ways - some are better than others but something is better than nothing. 1. Dropbox and One Drive – not really backups because if a virus gets onto your computer then it gets into these files as well but it can save you from a failed hard drive

Book a Nerd online at www.needanerd.co.nz or phone 0800 63 33 26

Windows 10 deadline looms

2. External Hard drive backup – this is the traditional plug in method but it’s manual and time consuming. Its main weakness is how often you backup. The longer the time between backups, the more stuff you’re at risk of losing. 3. On-line (cloud) Automated Back Up – this is the new standard. Your files are copied to a data centre and kept in a format that no-one can read. It backs up everyday and it can’t be corrupted. When your computer fails, get another one and bring back all your files from ‘the cloud’. It’s the fullest protection we have. Backing up is one of the fundamental ways to save you a lot of future heartache. If you’d like to know more, drop me a line at cbeentjes@ needanerd.co.nz Happy computing Carl

“This is a great example of how the Council’s new Te Tauihu te reo policy can work,” says Mayor Justin Lester. “Naming the right-of-way after a native bird has strong support from the local community and best reflected the local natural environment.”

John White, chairperson of the Ngaio Crofton Downs Residents’ Association, is looking forward to ending two years of research and negotiation about the future of the Dog Exercise Area (DEA) in Ngaio’s Cummings Park. It’s been a contentious issue, the community pretty evenly divided over whether dogs should continue to be allowed off the leash in this multi-use area. Wellington City Council is helping by conducting an online survey closing on June 30. The results will not be final, but will provide input for later community consultation. “I can see both sides of this issue,” says John, adding that he has no strong feelings either way. However, the answer has to be “yes’ or a “no”. “So it’s very difficult to find a compromise”. The association has delivered an information sheet to every letter box in Ngaio “and the council has put notices about the survey all around the park”. He strongly believes, as chair, his job is to ensure the arguments from both sides are presented clearly and the decision is informed by fact. So the association’s website has what he describes as a “huge” amount of information formatted into tables recording arguments

This year, the Gazley Volkswagen Wellington Marathon is to be held on Sunday July 1. It takes in a marathon, half marathon and 10k distances for both runners and walkers in open and age group categories, as well as the Kids’ Magic Mile. Established in 1986, the Wellington marathon has been Wellington’s favourite footrace for three decades, annually attracting more than 5000 entrants. Based at Westpac Stadium, the events are held on a fast, flat, scenic route around Wellington’s waterfront, enabling participation from all ages and abilities.

There are age group categories, as well as both running and walking categories. Other options include teams of four or more in open, women’s, corporate, school and walk teams. (The first four team members across the line count toward team results via their combined times.) There is a sliding scale of prize money for placegetters, with $1000 for winners of both the men’s and women’s events, plus a $1000 cash bonus for winners if they break the full marathon course record. Winners of the men’s and women’s full marathon will also win prize money and a

trip to the New Caledonia Marathon. Every participant gets a medal and every finisher who attends the prizegiving, and drops their race number in a box as they walk into the prize giving venue, has a shot at winning a Volkswagen Polo Comfortline car. Another spot prize is a trip to the New Caledonia Marathon. This year, the first Wellington woman to finish the full marathon will also win a trip to Japan’s Senshu Marathon, a prize has been created by the sister city associations of Wellington and Sakai. It alternates annually between male and female winners.

Out of hatred, love has grown By Glenise Dreaver

Musa Daba, vicar of Churton Park’s Anglican church since last November, left Bermuda’s beauty and 10 years of its tropical warmth and sunshine to come to Wellington. Musa says however, that he and his wife Levidia wanted somewhere to set roots, to raise their child Jessie in a safe place. “And I have cousins here.” He loves the simplicity of Churton Park and its church. “To worship in a school hall that is the centre of a community.” He appreciates too, the many nationalities here. He believes God wants him here to make a contribution, so he thought: “If that’s where you want me…’ “And I’m loving it.” Musa is old enough, however, to remember the worst of South African apartheid. His vicar father was an activist who nearly paid with his life and Bishop Desmond Tutu his mentor and friend. His father was several times imprisoned and tortured. Badly. Once, thirteen-year-old Musa was snatched near home, electrodes pushed into his palms and metal earpieces clamped on, with his younger brother looking on and crying for him. “And they just mocked.” This set up huge rage, but his father was uncompromising when he talked about it - and the AK47 he wanted. Soon after his father’s detention

Bishop Tutu sent for the Daba family to leave Uitenhage (just north of Port Elizabeth) to move to Cape Town, nearer him. “I found myself in a car in my school uniform. That fast.” In 1992, Musa describes distrustful meetings with two white boys, who persisted in inviting him to a Bible study. There he heard John 3, verse 16. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son…” “My life changed from then on”. “Monumental“ realisation fol-

lowed. “The idea of holding a grudge against someone seems so strange to me now.” He wasn’t the only one to change. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission, chaired by Bishop Tutu, was another factor creating space for real confession and forgiveness. And the 1995 Rugby World Cup also changed everything overnight. “The first time black and white flew the Springbok flag, sang that wonderful anthem together.”

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: How do you think the city council is performing at this stage of its term?

Cheryl Styles, Newlands “I’d give them 4/10 for spending on a wish list – wants instead of needs.”

Ann Geard, Newlands “Not too badly. The bus service is good – very pleasant and helpful drivers.”

Peter Sullivan. Johnsonville “Terrible. Cramped housing and putting Maori names in everything.”

Courtney Butterfield, Johnsonville “They’re doing great. Matariki’s been good – there’s a lot going on around the waterfront.”

Susan Tompkinson, Paparangi “They’re doing their best. There’s such a lot we need to do … I understand some dilemmas.”

Bruce Wylie, Crofton Downs “I’m sick of cycle lanes being moved and I don’t see why we need double decker buses when the system works well.”

Churton Park preparing for bus changes Churton Park faces some major alterations to its bus services when the new city-wide changes come into effect on July 15. There will be new routes, new bus stop locations, new timetables, new fares and the need to swap Newlands Coach Services smart cards for Snapper cards. New double-decker electric buses will come into use on the main

Churton Park to Island Bay spine route. To help residents familiarise themselves with all these changes, Churton Park Community Association, in conjunction with the Greater Wellington Regional Council, has organised an information session on Tuesday July 3 at the local Community Centre. People just need to drop in

between 6pm and 8pm to view maps of the new routes, see where the stops are, pick up a timetable and obtain fare information. Greater Wellington has indicated they will have Snapper cards available to swap smart cards for free. The community association says this information session will assist both regular commuters as well as occasional bus users and

members are looking forward to seeing a good attendance A spokesman for the Churton Park Community Association says, for locals, this represents the culmination of six years of discussions with the regional council. He says that the association is comfortable that they had achieved the best possible outcomes for residents, having been

able to persuade the Greater Wellington to make significant changes to some of their plans. Some minor “tweaks” may be necessary if any issues arise during the initial settling down period, he said. The session will occur on Tuesday July 3 from 6 to 8pm at the Churton Park Community Centre at 75 Lakewood Avenue.

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville a silver Mitsubishi Lancer saloon parked locked during the day in Ironside Road was stolen. An attempt was made to break into a flat in Phillip Street by forcing an aluminium framed window. A safety catch prevented it from opening, but a white singlet was snatched off the clothes line as the burglar departed. An attempt was made during the evening to break into a vehicle parked outside a flat in Dr. Taylor Terrace. The timely arrival of the owner disturbed the culprit who had damaged the door lock in an attempt to open the door. A full description of the offender has been passed to Police. A white Toyota Hilux utility vehicle parked overnight in Rotoiti Street was broken into by breaking both locking catches on the canopy door. A substantial quantity of tools were stolen from the vehicle. A house under construction in Cedarwood Street was entered by intruders who stole six large sheets of roofing iron, each 4.2 metres long and eight bargeboards each measuring 5.3 metres in length. A large vehicle would have been needed to carry away the stolen property. This is the second theft from this site. CCTV footage is available. A white Mitsubishi Triton utility vehicle parked locked overnight in Robert Street was broken into. Offenders had bent a fibre glass panel in the vehicle’s canopy to gain entry. A Honda 3 KVA rated generator was stolen. In Karori a blue Mitsubishi Mirage parked during the day outside a house in Karori Road was stolen. The Karori Baptist Church in Karori Road was broken into by jemmying the

front door. Two offices inside were entered by forcing the doors. The offices were thoroughly searched and a cash box was emptied. All rooms in the building appeared to have been searched. At this stage it is not clear what has been stolen. In Wadestown an unsuccessful attempt was made to break into a grey Toyota Landcruiser which had been parked overnight on the road in Barnard Street. Two door handles on the box at the back of the vehicle were damaged in the attempt. A silver Toyota RAV4 stationwagon parked during the day in the driveway of a house in Barnard Street was entered through a left front door after the lock had been tampered with. On gaining entry the offender searched the vehicle and stole a sports bag containing swimming gear. A grey Nissan Pulsar stationwagon parked locked overnight on the road in Barnard Street had a quarterlight window smashed to allow the culprit to reach through and open a door. An item of clothing was stolen. In Northland an attempt was made to steal a blue Subaru Impreza hatchback parked locked overnight in Garden Road. The bonnet had been pried open and the battery disconnected, probably to disable the alarm system. The left hand rear door was found open and entry may have been gained through forcing it. The ignition barrel and the steering column had been dismantled in an unsuccessful attempt to start the vehicle. The attempt was abandoned and nothing was stolen.

Rescue missions are “sausage-fuelled”

Lifeflight fundraising manager Sebastian Grodd accepts an $8000 cheque from outgoing Lions president Stephen Cook. PHOTO Lindsay Keats

Johnsonville Lions Club members have sold 4117 barbecued sausages to raise funds for the LifeFlight Trust rescue operations. At their last club meeting the Lions presented a cheque for $8000 to Sebastian Grodd, the trust’s fundraising manager. Lions president Stephen Cook said that funds were also raised at a fashion evening at Ballentynes

and through other events. “Our club members thank local residents who have supported our activities,” said Stephen, “particularly the support we have received on recent cold wet days on barbecue duty outside Countdown.” In thanking the Lions club Sebastian said that the donation was significant for them. “Each rescue we do has a fund-

ing shortfall of over $2500 and this donation will assist our costs for four rescues to help people in our community,” adding “sometimes it feels like our aircraft run on sausages!” Stephen was pleased that Johnsonville Lions were able to assist this key venture, “in particular” he said, “because this is the last community donation during my term as Lions Club president.”

Fruits of the forest and garden By Glenise Dreaver

Francesco van Eerd, ‘parfumeur’ (in English, just ‘perfumer’) has one of Wellington’s most distinctive premises beside the top cable car station. Move into the Victorian-style Fragrifert Perfumery and you step into another world. Alouette II, an antique-style copper still, is by the door, and is trundled outside and fired up from time to time. Francesco uses it to distil plant ingredients for his perfumes, for example pine needle oil and bay laurel. He no longer uses animal products . “They are all bad news for animals,” he says. Anyone who has been to Prenzel’s boutique liqueur distillery in Blenheim may know the original Alouette, the French still used for their pear brandy. They may also know that Alouette was buried deeply during World War II to hide her from the Nazi regime and dug up afterwards. Francesco has two of four copies of Alouette, one in Borneo, Indonesia. Originally a forester, Francesco spent his boyhood climbing trees with a friend and discovering new smells. His Master’s degree research on perfume products

from the forest was done 42 years ago, but not followed up into a career in practical perfumery. “I didn’t think normal people like me could become perfumers.” Now, however, Francesco welcomes many “normal people” in for workshops of up to three weeks, teaching them perfumery. The perfume industry likes to put its perfumers, called “noses”, on high pedestals, and maintains that only a tiny number of people with exceptional noses can become perfumers. “That’s all nonsense. Fortunately.” Sustainability is key. His perfumery features many perfumes based on products originating from flowers, trees and shrubs, resins and gums etc. Prenzel has the romantic story of Alouette and Francesco has a back story too. Posters on the walls describe his finds of many never-before-revealed perfumes from the tragic but brilliant Victorian French perfumer Gustave Fragrifert, after whom he named the business. Don’t go looking for a birth certificate though. “Never let truth stand in the way of a good story!” Francesco admits cheerfully.

Mattress donation to local Family Store

Ecosa this week donated its 500th memory foam mattress to The Salvation Army – this time to the Family Store in Johnsonville. Salvation Army Family Stores national manager Gareth Marshall says the mattress sales raise funds for much-needed Salvation Army services in each community. They also give Family Store customers the opportunity to purchase a high quality mattress

at a significantly discounted price. “We’re really grateful for this partnership. The donations from Ecosa are a significant support to our stores and help provide the funds that keep our services running their community. “They also provide a supply of better quality stock to our stores and another chance for people to find a treasure when they shop.”

Wellington City Council is looking for a long-term community focused or Non-Government Organisation (NGO) tenant to rent a historically significant house in Khandallah Park. The former Khandallah Park’s custodian’s residence at 86 Clark Street has local historical value as a relatively early survivor from the period when the area was converted from farmland to a city suburb. The house was constructed by a local woman, Caroline Pickin about 1901-1902. It’s strongly associated with the early reservation of native bush in Wellington, and closely identified with the Glen family – in particular the custodian Andrew Glen, who played a large role in the establishment of the reserve and its popularity. Council is looking for a suitable tenant to find a use that will contribute to the community, support the sustainability and preservation of the house, and enhance the surrounding reserve

areas. A Registration of Interest (ROI) process has opened, with pre-arranged visits available on request for July 6, deadline for respondent questions on July 16, and deadline for ROI responses on July 27. The criteria are that the successful applicant maximise the building’s unique setting, character and layout while minimising the effects on the surrounding amenity values and building’s heritage values and provide a viable, long-term use for the building Successful applications will also show one or more ‘public good’ elements, namely conservation, recreation, community/cultural, or education, will demonstrate ‘active’ use of the building and is not a static activity such as a storage facility. They will need to maximise the building’s use, ensuring it is not used for just a few hours a week, or not just using just part of the lease area.

The Muslim holy month of Ramadan ended on June 14. Few people in Wellington understand what Ramadan means to the followers of Islam so this year, members of the Muslim community took steps to share their celebrations. Ramadan (the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar) commemorates the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad. During this month

Mai Mostafa, the Egyptian-born Community Advocate from the Churton Park Community Centre, was keen to show her family’s appreciation of the friendship and support that they have received in New Zealand. So t hey invited t hei r new friends to experience a shared feast (Iftar) that

Ramadan. The interest generated led others to work with her to create a community celebration of Eid in the Newtown Library. Eid traditionally includes prayers, festivities and a feast which, in some countries, can last for three days. Families came together to share food, music and conversation. Johnsonville-based Imam Sheik Khaled Abbas held the at-

he explained Eid. This was helped by the distribution of chocolate bars. They were joined by Rongotai MP Paul Eagle and Wellington Southern Ward councillor Fleur Fitzsimmons. This friendly mingling of people from different cultures sets a wonderful example of what can be achieved for world peace if people can only spare the time to get to know each other.

Predator Free Wellington now a charity Predator Free Wellington now has Wellington City Council’s tick of approval to become a legal charity, opening the door for further growth and a wider raft of funding opportunities. Since the organisation launched 18 months ago, more than 10,000 people have come on board with backyard trapping and helping with the mission to make Wellington New Zealand’s first predator free city and the world’s first predator free capital city. Mayor Justin Lester says there is considerable interest from philanthropic organisations and community-level donors and the change will make it easier for them to play a part creating the world’s first predator-free capital city. “This potential new funding will bolster the more than $1m Wellington City Council has committed to Predator Free Wellington over the next five years,” he says. The shift will also enable Predator Free Wellington to seek central government Predator Free 2050 funding. Councillor Andy Foster says the flow-on effects are multifaceted. “More funding means fewer pests, more native birds, and a healthier ecosystem. This is very valuable for a city that’s largely defined by its natural environment. “There are also the social benefits we get from having well-connected communities working together for a common cause through local predator-free trapping groups,” he says. Possums were eradicated from the Miramar Peninsula in 2006. Predator Free Wellington now plans to completely remove all rats and mustelids on the Miramar Peninsula before focusing on making other Wellington suburbs predator free.

Winter Kapiti Arts Trail among finalists in LGNZ EXCELLENCE Awards unique collection of relatively unknown artists. The Trail showcases these to the regional and wider community - providing recognition, validation and income to Kāpiti’s artists and its hospitality sector. It has grown to be a significant lower-North Island art event, expanding from one to two weekends in 2015. Judges said “This project has given prominence to the diversity of creative talent in the District. The Council recognised that its District has a unique collection of artists who weren’t wellknown to the community and has given its local artists the opportunity to showcase their work to visitors from around the country.” LGNZ President Dave Cull says that being named as a finalist is a significant achievement and reflects strong leadership and the innovative work being delivered by councils across the country. “The finalists include some exceptional projects that are having a profound impact on communities.

Now in their fifth year, the Awards recognise and celebrate the key leadership role that local government plays in communities around the country. The Council has led the Kāpiti Arts Trail for the past 17 years, each year giving more and more local artists the opportunity to welcome the public into their studios, observe the work they do and experience the passion they have for art. In 2018 the number of artists involved has topped 100 for the first time. The Trail’s focus is on inclusivity, participation and celebrating cultural vibrancy throughout the District.

THE PRESERVATION OF HEALTH IS EASIER THAN THE CURE OF THE DISEASE

SINUS INFECTION (SINUSITIS) Have you ever had that really heavy feeling in your head, with pain, swelling and tenderness around your eyes and cheeks or forehead, a feeling of pressure building around your face? This could be a sinus infection or sinusitis. Sinusitis is a common condition and can occur after you’ve had a cold or flu, or with hay fever and with allergies. Symptoms include nasal congestion with the build-up of mucous, and thick nasal discharge, which may be yellowish or greenish in colour. There may also be post nasal drip with mucous dripping down the inside of the throat. Sometimes there can be a high temperature of 38C or above, and sinus headache. The sinuses are made up of several spaces or cavities in the skull, and when these become inflamed or infected then mucous is unable to drain away and sinusitis can be the result. The build-up of pressure in this area can then lead to headaches or pain, which can be quite severe. When sinusitis occurs in young children signs include irritability, difficulty feeding and breathing through the mouth and not the nose. Symptoms of sinus infection generally clear within a week to ten days and this is without the need of any antibiotic treatment. There are several reasons why this is the case. Firstly sinusitis is often caused by viruses which are not treated with antibiotics. Also it has been seen that when bacteria are the cause of the infection, antibiotics have not been found to be beneficial and that the

symptoms have gone and the condition has resolved even without the use of antibiotics. Avoiding antibiotics is the preferred situation to minimise the overuse of antibiotics and help prevent antibiotic resistance from occurring. However there are certain circumstances where your GP could prescribe antibiotics, e.g. extreme or severe pain, fever over 38.6 degrees Celsius, or signs of cellulitis, i.e. a skin infection such as a fast spreading hot red rash. Also you may need to visit your GP for antibiotics if the condition initially improves but then worsens and is prolonged. In some cases sinusitis can recur and last longer than 3 months. This is known as chronic sinusitis and may need a referral from your GP to an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist There are things that you can do at home that will help sinusitis such as getting plenty of rest and drinking plenty of fluid. Extra fluid helps to thin the mucous so that it can drain away more easily. Gently blowing the nose, one nostril at a time is also effective. Holding a warm flannel or compress over the inflamed area can help to ease the pain and this can be done for a few minutes several times a day. Inhaling steam from a bowl of hot water may give some relief but care must be taken to avoid scalding and this is especially important with young children and is therefore not encouraged. Applying a salt water solution to the nostrils can also help to ease the congestion. Homemade salt solutions can be used or they can be purchased from the pharmacy.

A humidifier can also be helpful, as is stopping smoking and avoiding known allergy triggers. Good hand hygiene can help to keep the spread of infection and prevent reinfection from occurring. There are medicines available to use for sinusitis which includes pain relief such as paracetamol or anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen. Your Self Care pharmacist can also give you advice on decongestants that can be used to help by drying up the mucous and unblocking the nose. These are available as nasal sprays or drops and it is very important to use these for a few days only, after 3 to 5 days their usage should be stopped. If they are used continuously for long periods of time they can cause a condition known as rebound congestion, which is more congestion, adding to the problem. Decongestants are also available as tablets, some are only available with a GP’s prescription while others can be purchased from the pharmacy. Care needs to be taken to see if pain relief and anti-inflammatory drugs have been included in the same product when buying these over the counter. Discuss this with your Self Care pharmacist to find out. Other medication available from your pharmacist are antihistamines, which can be used to help dry up the nasal secretions especially if allergies are the cause of the symptoms. Your Self Care Pharmacist can provide you with Self Care fact cards for more information on coughs, colds and flu and how to protect yourself this winter.

Hot ‘meals-on-wheels’ are delivered by volunteers from their distribution centre at Johnsonville’s Uniting Church, to up to 60 people per day in Newlands, Johnsonville, Khandallah and Ngaio. To mark their efforts in National Volunteer Week, the volunteers gathered for lunch in the centre on Friday June 22. The team’s coordinators Bev Donovan (checker) and Angela Roestenburg, (volunteer drivers), explained what is involved. Bev explained that this service has a long history, being well established here when she began over

30 years ago. Meals are prepared at Keneperu Hospital and delivered to the distribution centre. People who receive the meals are referred by their hospital or doctor. They include the elderly or disabled and people recovering from illness or hospital treatment. For some, the need is short-term but, for others, it is ongoing. Their team notes any dietary requirements or preferences and checks that the meals as delivered match the orders, before passing them to the drivers. They currently have 40 drivers and 12 checkers on their books and always welcome more, to spread the workload and cover for absences.

Wellington North Community Patrol receives recognition from Z Johnsonville The Wellington North Community Patrol has just received a Good in the Hood grant from Z Johnsonville. Patrol members are grateful to both Z Johnsonville and their patrons who voted for them. This money will go a long way to keeping the patrol car on the road. They works as the eyes and ears of the Police and is out in the community on most Friday evenings and some Saturdays, for up to four hours each patrol. Their area includes Johnsonville, Ohariu, Churton Park, Glenside, Grenada Village, Woodridge, Paparangi, Newlands, and Ngauranga. Members assist Police to reduce the incidence and effects of criminal offending. Vehicles and people of interest have been located and reported to Police for example. And while out the team also reports graffiti, water leaks on the roads, and street lights not working.

The Community Patrols of New Zealand (CPNZ) website has recently been updated and patroller module training can now be done online, a lot easier than attending weekend training courses. Patrol leader Cheryl Austin says some members have recently moved away from the area. “So we would like new members. Retired people or those not working are especially encouraged as they can do special patrols in daytime,” she says. “We have an easily recognisable patrol car with an amber light on the roof and side spotlights to look into dark corners at night time. “Patrols must have two members and rosters are prepared a month in advance for members to choose the day that suits.”  Cheryl asks any interested person to contact her at cherylaustin2002@ gmail.com.

with Jacob Page

Perspective on Phil’s golf faux pas Phil Mickelson’s US Open meltdown revealed more than just one man’s frustrations. The 48-year-old, multiple time major winner hit his moving ball on the 13th green during round three at the difficult Shinnecock Hills course. Mickelson was well out of contention by the time he did it and he wasn’t the only one to fall victim to a windy course with lightning fast greens and needlessly difficult pin placements. The reaction to Mickelson’s error showed how out of touch golf is. Pundits called for him to apologise to the game of golf for his actions. This seemed to be a massive overreaction. Tournament officials need to admit they made the tournament dull. Ordinary people don’t want to see the professionals forced to grind out four rounds of a tournament. Brooks Koepka won back-to-back titles with a one over par total.

They should be the one’s apologising. Phil is also a victim of his own stature in the game. His popularity with the public is not matched amongst his fellow golfers. There is no way there would have been the level of outrage if golfs golden boy, Tiger Woods did it that would stop the cash cow from milking. Mickelson didn’t harm the sport like Mike Tyson’s ear biting incident did to boxing or Lance Armstrong’s drug cheating in cycling. Golf purists merely live in their own bubble. That’s why youngsters aren’t taking up the game. The old guard won’t get out of their own way. Phil’s actions were silly, done out of frustration but they weren’t game destroying. Not even close.
