When Anne Meade of Khandallah was invited to the Beehive award evening on Tuesday July 3, she suspected something might be up. When they rang a day or two before the dinner to double check she would be there, “I was joining the dots,” she says. Arriving to be shown to the top table with the Minister of Education Chris Hipkins and other political luminaries, and seated beside MC Miranda Harcourt, she wondered if she would have to speak.

The Wellington Children’s Hospital is delighted to report that their campaign which appealed to the Wellington community to donate warm pyjamas for children who had none, has been highly successful. And nine-year-old Yovela Li of Johnsonville, whose story featured in the Independent Herald (June 13, 2018 p.7) has received a special mention in the hospital’s newsletter. Yovela, with the help of Harcourts Team YIP, ran an online givealittle campaign called Warm Our Kids, supplemented by a starting donation of $2000 from William Yip. She raised enough money to donate an incredible 400 pairs of pyjamas. Hospi, the hospital’s mascot bear, is reportedly blown away by this amazing achievement, and was excited to meet Yovela when she delivered the pyjamas to Wellington Hospital. Yovela had told our readers that when she was born, she was four and a half weeks premat u re, so st ayed in the newborn ward for two weeks at the Wellington Regional Children’s Hospital.

Making Wellington fairer


inbrief news Foodbank requests old bus cards Newlands/Mana bus cards are obsolete from July 15. To get a refund you download a form to post to Mana Coach Services or take it to the Newlands bus depot. Newlands Foodbank says you can save yourself the hassle by donating your old card to them, along with a consent form, so their bank account can be credited. The foodbank would also be grateful to get the $10 deposit if you haven’t already used your old card to get a free Snapper card. Consent forms can be obtained and cards dropped into their collection points at most local supermarkets and foodmarkets, and the Newlands Community Centre. The option is only open until August 5.

The Rainbow Cable Car Beyond the Page, a literary festival for children and their families, runs from July 7-22. In one of its more colourful events, on Monday morning July 16 drag artist Queen Olivia St Redfern will read to children on free return trips on the Wellington Cable Car. Everyone travelling must pre-register. While this is suitable for families with preschool and primary school children, there will be no room for buggies and pushchairs. Sessions are available at 10.50am, 11.10am, 11.30am, and 11.50am. Book at the-rainbow-cable-car/wellington

ACC’s Stephen Fletcher and KCA co-founder Tracy Wellington proudly display their award certificates for their food rescue work. PHOTO: Supplied.

The North Grenada-based food and goods rescue charity Kiwi Community Assistance (KCA) has been recognised for making the Wellington region a fairer place. Peeni Henare, Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector, recently presented them with a Corporate Challenge Award from Volunteer Wellington. The award is in recognition of the work being done in

collecting and supplying food and goods to 65 front-line charities in the region. These include Newlands Foodbank, The Salvation Army Johnsonville and The House of Grace. KCA was nominated by ACC, who also received an award for their contribution, providing staff to do one day a year. This year 21 ACC staff helped with storing and distributing goods. KCA co-founder Tracy Wellington says they’re delighted

with the recognition which should really go to all its volunteers. “KCA has up to 80 volunteers helping at any time.” They are rescuing food, mainly she says from the generous local supermarkets. Volunteer drivers and volunteers make up orders to go to front-line charities from the KCA warehouse in Grenada North. Other corporate volunteers, like ACC, also help.

Tracy says all their volunteers want to help those less well off than themselves. “We know all our volunteers have big hearts.” He says there are always chances for anyone wanting to help, ranging from those who can provide a couple of hours a month as well as regulars who do a few hours each week. They’re particularly interested in anyone able to help out during weekday mornings.

inbrief news Poppy appeal raises $1.7m New Zealand Returned and Services’ Association (RSA) have paid tribute to New Zealanders for their generosity and empathy for current and former service personnel through the 2018 Poppy Appeal. The appeal raised $1.7m across New Zealand. The theme – Not all wounds bleed – generated significant discussion around the mental health challenges faced by current and former service personnel as well as their families.  The funds will assist in many ways, including recovery from psychological trauma and helping the families of current and former military personnel deal with health or hardship issues. In 2017, there were 19,992 welfare interactions completed by over 150 volunteer RSA support advisors. Many of these were face-to-face interactions with veterans in need of help.

Armistice Day plans Plans to mark the centenary of the armistice that ended World War I on November 11 have been announced . The cornerstone will be a national service at Pukeahu, centred around a two minute silence at 11am. New Zealand Defence Force personnel will also conduct a sunset ceremony including the final daily Last Post Ceremony of the World War I centenary. In addition to the events at Pukeahu, the WW100 programme office is looking to work alongside communities organising their own Armistice activities.  Groups are encouraged to register their event or activity at ww100.govt. nz/armistice. 

Scholarships available AMP has put out the call for Kiwis who have a dream and a can-do attitude to apply for one of their scholarships.   This year, AMP is giving away up to $200,000 to help talented New Zealanders of all ages and from all walks of life to pursue their dreams. Athletes, scientists, researchers, performing artists, entrepreneurs and community volunteers are just some of the people who will be considered. Those starting their own business, going after their sporting passion or giving back to the community are all eligible too.   Applications are now open, closing on August 13 2018.

Supporting youth their focus By Glenise Dreaver

For Vino and Anselm Martyn of Khandallah, youth-focussed charity work is a passion. They began their work in Sydney, moving there just over 21 years ago after their high-performing and very well-respected 17-year-old son Anshan passed away. There, on Anselm’s birthday, they always held a dinner party for family and friends. Then the couple decided that instead of guests bringing gifts they be asked to donate to Father Chris Riley’s rescue charity “Youth off the Street”. They did this for nine years, raising thousands of dollars at a time. Back at last in their family home in Khandallah, Vino and Anselm joined a group which they felt needed a boost, so a dinner dance fundraiser was the answer. They chose to support the Good Shepherd Convent nuns refuge for single mums in their

home country Sri Lanka. It meant starting over again, without their strong Sydney contacts, so Vino “hit the streets” gathering support and marketing their souvenir advertising brochure, including the menu and describing the charity. This year, the couple is focussed on Youthline Wellington which supports young people dealing with issues like bullying, depression, anxiety, selfharm and attempts at suicide. That’s very close to their hearts as Vino reflects on not picking up on Anshan’s grief, which followed glandular fever and months of missed learning. What matters now, she says, is that they help other young people. “We are determined to go forward.” The ball, with tickets at $60 a head, will be held in the Massey University Tea Gardens Centre on Saturday September 8.  For more information contact Vino at avfundingyouth@

Be in to help select vehicle charger sites The public has until Friday to have their say on where Wellington City Council should put the 25 new electric vehicle (EV) chargers to be installed in residential areas. Council’s goal is to create a low carbon capital city, and support its contribution to reducing the impacts of climate change. The eco-sanctuary Zealandia has however, been ahead of the game with three vehicle charging stations installed around two years ago. They are free of charge and open to the public, their energy supplemented by Zealandia already has three solar panels. Zealandia spokesperson vehicle charging stations open free to the public. Cameron Hayes says: “We’ve PHOTO: Glenise Dreaver seen plenty of uptake in peo-

ple using them and find both visitors and local EV owners are also taking advantage of them. “ While cars charging at Zealandia can charge in roughly half the time it would take from a household outlet, Cameron says they are slow chargers, not fast chargers. “The idea is that visitors can get a top up, putting their car on charge while they spend a couple of hours in the sanctuary or our cafe.” Zealandia also has separate electric bike charging stations which, Cameron says, can fully charge the average e-bike from dead flat in a matter of hours. However, one in four Wellington EV users can’t charge

Each council site will charge two cars at once, over several hours, probably overnight or for a lot of the day.

Arts thriving in Karori From Saturday July 14-21, Karori Arts and Crafts is holding its annual Art Exhibition. The artists are all members, known for their high standards.

their collections very reasonably and supporting artists to replenish their materials. Work by tutors, many professional artists, can cost more but represents significant value. People starting a collection can also begin with one piece they love, says Margaret. All year long, members work across a very broad range of genres in watercolours, oils, acrylics, as well as in photography and print making, preparing for these exhibitions. “And the standard of the art selected for exhibition is just remarkable,” says Margaret. On both Saturdays from 11.15am12.15pm there will be artist demonstrations. At the first, Margaret will demonstrate watercolour doodling. “ People can have a go themselves as no experience is required. It’s a lot of fun.” A gold coin donation for their heat pump fund is all that is needed. The centre offers classes and workshops for adults and children including school holiday workshops. There are over 15 interest groups that include painting, photography, quilting, knitting, antique appreciation and gardening. “We now know that being involved in the arts, as shown in research, helps your brain keep young and flexible. It keeps those synapses firing! And it’s wonderful for the soul,” says Margaret. Each day from July 14-21, the exhibition will be held in the centre’s rooms at 7 Beauchamp Street, Karori between 10-4pm, free entry.

“It is a great opportunity to view, even purchase an original and unique artwork,” says centre manager Margaret Taylor. Some local collectors are loyal to one artist and await the exhibition eagerly, adding a piece or two to

Local support for diabetes awareness Most people diagnosed with diabetes find out accidentally while being treated for other medical conditions. Yet late diagnosis of diabetes leaves people at greater risk of developing serious complications. Johnsonville Lions Club President Ross Brown says that awareness is critical to encourage good health for our future and that of our children. “We are hosting a public evening with Diabetes NZ and the Healthy Futures Trust on Wednesday July 18 at 7pm in the Johnsonville Community Centre Hall,” he says,

adding that a gold coin donation would be appreciated. Diabetes, says Ross, is a persistent disease that occurs as a result of high blood sugar. “It develops when your body is unable to produce insulin, or make use of it.” Diabetes can appear at any age, even in children. According to the Ministry of Health, there are over 240,000 people in New Zealand diagnosed with diabetes. Unfortunately, there are estimated to be 100,000 more who have it — but don’t know. There are two types of Diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2.

While Type 1 diabetes is genetic and cannot be prevented, it can be managed. On the other hand, by following a healthy lifestyle, there is a chance of preventing Type 2 diabetes. President Ross said Johnsonville Lions is taking this initiative to increase public awareness and encourage those at risk to be checked. “It’s something we can do to help improve the health of our community,” he says, “and is in line with a multi-million dollar international project of Lions Clubs to help reduce the adverse effects of diabetes worldwide.”

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: The Wellington whale – have you been down to see it?

Peter Wilkinson, Churton Park “No, but I probably will … it’s been the weather.”

Maji Peramune, Newlands “No … I’ve seen whales anyway.”

Adela Edwards, Karori “No … it should be left alone.”

Melissa Dehar, Johnsonville “Not yet.. I’ve been away. But I will.”

Becky Casson, Johnsonville “By accident early on … on a school bus trip along the motorway. The children were so excited.”

Zander Phillips, Johnsonville “No. But I want to!”

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville a garage located underneath a house in Woodland Road was entered through a double glass sliding door. A key was left in the lock. Two large speakers and an amplifier were stolen. A bright yellow three fin surfboard was stolen from a white Chrysler PT Cruiser parked overnight on the street in Middleton Road, while a vehicle parked overnight on the road in Cunliffe Street had its petrol tank

drained. Offenders removed the plug under the car and inserted a length of hose into the tank, which was left at the scene but the petrol tank cap is missing. In Newlands the sliding door at the rear of a house in Baylands Drive was jemmied open to gain access. Every room in the house appears to have been searched and the contents of drawers scattered on the floor. Items listed as stolen include a TV set, Xbox 360 and controller, Toshiba

laptop and an Iphone charger, other electronic accessories, two mink blankets, a bag of pregnancy related items, binoculars, several jewellery items, clothing and cash. A boarded door at a house under construction in Grumman Lane was forced open and power tools were stolen. Two vehicles left in the garage of a house in Rice Crescent while the owner is away were removed and both returned later, damaged.

A blue Mitsubishi Pajero stationwagon parked unlocked in Dunmail Way during the early evening was entered by an intruder. A wallet containing a driver’s licence and bank credit and debit cards were stolen and used fraudulently several times. In Khandallah a house in Ganges Road was entered through an unlocked rear door leading to the laundry. Items for washing were removed from the washing machine which was then discon-

nected and stolen. In Churton Park a house in Wantwood Grove was broken into just after 9am, after the resident had left the property. A neighbour saw a young female drive onto the property and knock on the door. As there was no response the female returned to her car and returned with an object which it was later discovered had been used to prise open a window. A list of stolen property is being drawn up.

LETTERS to the editor

MP’s comments challenged Dear Editor National list-MP Brett Hudson should be a bit more honest with his comments. (“Toll another cost says MP” Herald, July 4) He complains of tolls on top of a likely regional fuel tax. No mention that the former National Government also increased fuel taxes to help fund its roading extravaganza. The Public Private Partnership building Transmission Gully has not “saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars”. Future generations will be paying this thing off over 25 years, at a far higher cost than the sum to build it now.

Mr Hudson’s claim that “people are more prepared to be stuck in queues of traffic on the existing SH1 than take the train”, is at odds with surging rail patronage which has necessitated the putting-on of extra trains. If drivers aren’t prepared to pay a modest toll for using Transmission Gully, alarm bells should ring over its cost justification. And if road tolls to encourage people onto public transport are so “ludicrous”, perhaps a better answer is simply to make the trains free too! David Bond, Ngaio

School holiday fun Johnsonville residents Tanisha Wardle and Nick Gibbs are part of the Pantaloons team performing Treasure Island at the Hannah Playhouse these school holidays. This is Nick’s first show with the group and he is loving playing Squire Trelawney, who jumps at the chance to sail off in his ship the Hispianola to search for treasure on Skull Island. Tanisha is an original Pantaloon and this time she will be playing a dastardly pirate. They, and the rest of the cast, can be seen from July 18-20 at the Hannah Playhouse at the child-friendly times of 10am and 11.45am.

Tanisha Wardle is the crouching pirate on the right, really getting into character, and Nick Gibbs is centre back (the one looking like Sherlock Holmes). PHOTO provided

Oversew Fashion Awards — Sunday Matinee The Oversew Fashion Awards, New Zealand’s only upcycled Fashion Awards Show and design competition, is celebrating its sixth year. This year it’s called 'New Beginnings' and includes Some of these changes include several all-new categories: Ath-leisure, Streetstyle, Night Life and Show Stoppers with prizes for menswear and mini collections, young and tertiary designers. What's different about Oversew is that entrants must use at least 80 percent pre-worn clothing as their materials. Designers are encouraged to design with zero waste in mind, which makes for a very exciting brief resulting in some stunning one off creations.

Upcycling not only minimises waste and reduces landfill, it could also be seen as a solution to the world wide epidemic of fast fashion and consumption. This is fashion with meaning and a pulse! Once again, the awards team are working with their partner sponsor,

Earthcare Environmental, who has been there from the beginning.

The Sunday matinee show, the only one with tickets still available, begins at the Carterton Events Centre in the heart of the Wairarapa at 2pm, with the doors opening at 1.30pm. (The Saturday Awards night sold out three weeks ago.)

“Kiwi are my friends” says local five-year old By Jo Lucre

Paparangi five-year-old, Alexia Kaloyanis, has been busy raising funds again for her nocturnal friends. A trip to the zoo three years ago marked the beginning of Alexia’s love of kiwi and a desire to help them. After fundraising last year for Kiwis for Kiwi, a charity protecting New Zealand’s native birds, Alexia was keen to do another says mum Sarah. With stuffed toy ‘Iwi’ in tow and Kiwis for Kiwi donation bucket in hand, Alexia, her mum and brother seven-year-old Hector, last week raised an impressive $500. Funds were raised selling iceblocks at school, raff le tickets outside Countdown and local businesses donated prizes. Sarah says it was encouraging to see both her children giving their time and energy. “Our friends, family and her teachers think it’s fantastic, especially someone so young being this kind and caring for the environment.” Alexia’s love of birds is not suprising with a family of bird lovers,including an aunt who rescues and rehabilitates injured birds. A recent transiton from kindy to school means Alexia has less time for kiwi activities but she shares

her passion with classmates and includes kiwi in all her artwork. “Her friends see a kiwi or picture and immediately think of Alexia,” Sarah says.

Alexia’s love of kiwi is likely to be lasting, says Sarah as she has already expressed an interest in working with the birds when older. Kiwis for Kiwi administrator

Getting the right look Khandallah resident Marj Lawson has been a stalwart of Khandallah Arts Theatre for 30 years and a weekly volunteer at the Tawa Mary Potter Hospice shop for 10. Recently she combined these two interests to take the cast of the theatre club’s current production to the Hospice shop to find clothes and accessories for their modern-day characters.

“You might think they could wear their own clothes,” she says, “but the people they are playing have very different personalities from their own. I don’t think this handbag suits Cathy (Leonard) at all, but it is absolutely right for the flamboyant woman she plays in The Pink Hammer.” The Pink Hammer is a comedy-drama. It has lots of laughs but also strong story-lines and interesting ideas. When the play opens, four women seeking “empowerment and sisterhood” through a woodwork course turn up unexpectedly at the home workshop of an out-of-work builder, who is highly annoyed that his domain has been invaded by a “bunch of crazy women”. It was written by Wellingtonian Michele Amas who had been a poet and professional actor for 30 years before she died of cancer in 2016. Towards the end of her life she turned her hand to writing for the stage, finishing a pantomime in 2013 and The Pink Hammer in 2014. It has been performed in several cities, but never until now in Wellington. “It’s great entertainment,” Marj says, “with very funny interactions between the five characters and a poignant ending.” Marj is one of those theatre-making enthusiasts who can turn her hand to almost anything, from performing big roles to handing out programmes. This time she is the production manager, a job she says is all-absorbing. “I moan because of all the things that I have to fit round my ‘other’ life, but really I love it.”

Paul O’Shea said they were blown away by Alexia’s efforts. “The initiative and generosity that Alexia shows at such a young age is truly astonishing. It is inspiring to us to know

that kiwi have fans like Alexia,” Paul says. “The money raised is enough to protect five kiwi for a year by providing predator control on 50ha of kiwi habitat.” SELF SERVICE

From Government House to Glenside

The rare craft of making Victorian-style curtains was recently undertaken by Lewis’s of Ngauranga for the historic Halfway House in Glenside. Allan Holdaway, production manager, and Robbie Burns, curtain installer, have each worked for Lewis’s for 20 years and said it was rare to get an opportunity to make Victorianstyle curtains. Their previous similar order was heritage curtains for Government House. The Victorian curtains are in a style of velvet, coloured burgundy. Each of the two large windows is enhanced with festoons trimmed

in ‘Persian” brush fringe, and the tails are lined in taffeta. “They’ve got the wow factor,” said Robbie. “They look fantastic in the rooms. The setting is prefect. Allan Holdaway said that the team from Lewis’s enjoyed making the curtains. He was able to pass his skills onto a new generation, with an intern learning alongside him. Claire Bibby, President of the Glenside Progressive Association Inc. said the association received a grant from The Trusts Community Foundation, which enabled the curtains to be made.

Despite atrocious weather conditions on Saturday there were smiles aplenty amongst the North Wellington Football Club faithful. The New World Newlands Men’s Premier team notched up an impressive win against Island Bay with a final score of 5-1 to the home side at Alex Moore Park. Two goals went to Maksym Kowal in the first three minutes By half time the score was 4-1 through a clinical close range shot from mid fielder Ryan Worrall. Maksym brought scoring proceedings to an end with a hat trick when he converted a penalty opportunity 25 minutes into the second half. The excitement of the win was only heightened when news filtered through that results

from other matches had gone North Wellington’s way. An unassailable 15-point lead and Premier League title was confirmed with four matches still to be played.

Junk food dominates sport Junk food dominates New Zealand sport venues, according to new research results from the University of Otago, Wellington. Fizzy, chocolate, chips and other fried foods were the most common foods sold at these venues. The researchers looked at food sold at 31 rugby and 20 netball venues and interviewed sports administrators from a range of sports. Food was sold at 19 of 20 netball

venues and 13 of 29 rugby venues. The researchers found 68 percent of all food items sold at netball venues were unhealthy, and at 62 percent of rugby venues. Sales generated no income for most sports organisations with food services contracted to caterers. Interviewees suggested that generally caterers have control of food provision and they need to make a profit.

Three Lions thrive on free-flowing football Pressure — it’s something intangible that’s easy to see. It does strange things to sports people and sports teams alike. Some thrive with it, while others take a dive. The All Blacks generally handle pressure well. But that thirst to win is often quenched. Our cricketers, hockey teams, swimmers have often come up short in big moments. Pressure can’t be touched but it can be felt and seen on someone’s face. It’s ironic English football has had its best World Cup campaign in more than two decades simply because the pressure of expectation has not been on them. Past teams have had so much expectation that they’ve often cramped up under the scrutiny and bowed out before their talent level suggests they should have. Having spoken to my few English friends throughout football’s biggest

tournament, many were just happy to see the ‘Three Lions’ get out of the group stage. One mentioned to me he was happy to see them make the knockout games and commented that they seemed to be playing with a freedom he hadn’t seen in his 30 years of watching the game. It was an interesting observation from someone who’s seen more than his share of English football heartache as the national side looked for their first World Cup since 1966. Past tournaments have been littered with funny stories of how the English messed up campaigns. Whether it be a David Beckham red card or a missed penalty, the English seemed to find new and bizarre ways to exit the tournament. Free of pressure and with limited expectations already exceeded, this team is not burdened by the past, they are not a laughing stock. No pressure, just pride.
