Most valuable player By Dan Whitfield

Jyordanna Davey was happy to help her team lift up the trophy after they won this year’s Basketball New Zealand under 15 national tournament recently. Not only that, she was also named the most valuable player. The capital team was made up of a combination of players from Wellington, Hutt Valley, and Porirua and travelled to Bruce Pullman Arena in Auckland to compete. Continued on page 2.

Joining Jyordanna in the team was fellow Wainuiomata High School student Ebony Vole, and Wainuiomata girls Tia Remuera and Tayla-Kei Rahui-Lualua. Jyordanna’s mum and team manager Ngahuia Davey says though the team weren’t the favourites to win, the girls went into the tournament focused and confident, and came away with the result they’d hoped for. The capital team met Waikato in the quarter finals and won; Harbour in the semi finals and won; and managed to come away with a 86-58 victory over Tauranga in the final. Ngahuia says the team was good this year and everyone was excited when they won. “The girls ran on to the

Bishop blasts Hutt Valley SNA process

Wainuiomata News The largest circulating newspaper in Wainuiomata


Hutt South MP Chris Bishop is calling on the Hutt City Council to immediately halt its Significant Natural Area process and go back to the drawing board. Chris explains he has been uneasy about the process right from the start, when around 1500 letters were sent out of the blue to residents all around the Hutt telling them their land (or part of their land) has been identified as being part of a ‘Significant Natural Area’. Significant Natural Areas are areas of significant indigenous vegetation and significant habitats of indigenous fauna. Hutt City Council is working to identify and protect areas of significant biodiversity in Lower Hutt. Under the Resource Man-

court and were hugging and congratulating each other. Jyordanna was so happy they won and was pleased to come away as the most valuable player,” Ngahuia says. She says to have four in the squad from Wainuiomata was a win in itself. “The Wainuiomata girls played really well.” The team was selected by coach Nixon Penese and featured a number of standout female basketball players from around the Wellington region. At this stage, Jyordanna is waiting to hear back about whether she’s made the New Zealand basketball team for her age group, set to attend an overseas tournament in December. The next competition for Jyordanna is Hoopnation.

agement Act (RMA) and the Wellington Regional Policy Statement, council is responsible for ensuring these valuable ecological sites are adequately conserved, enhanced and protected for the future. Chris says the restrictions that could potentially be imposed on this land are quite significant - including stopping not only sub-division, vegetation clearance, earthworks, but also possibly vege gardens, or playhouses a few metres from residents’ homes. Concerns have grown for the Hutt South MP after seeing landowners in the Hutt Valley “attempt” to get answers from the council about why the SNA process is being undertaken, what it involves, and what is being asked of landowners.

“Frustration has now reached boiling point and it is time the council recognised that they need to throw out the current plans, take a breather, and go back to the drawing board,” Chris says. “This process has been a shambles right from the start, but it did not have to be this way. Other councils have undertaken to protect significant natural areas by engaging in good faith with affected landowners, working in conjunction with them, and approaching things on a caseby-case basis. “The Hutt City Council decided, for whatever reason, that a better way would be to write out of the blue to over 1500 houses telling them their land could potentially have

significant restrictions placed on it, with very little context given and with no certainty about the process from here on in,” he says. Chris says there has been no recognition given to the enormous role that private landowners already play in protecting significant indigenous vegetation on their property. Moreover, some landowners have had huge chunks of land classified in the areas when only tiny bits of the area identified have anything that could be legitimately classified as a SNA, he says. “The process has been a total shambles and I’m calling on the mayor and councillors to show some leadership. Bin the current plans and start again.”

Friends of Baring Head make headway with planting event

inbrief news Fundraising community event St Patrick’s Church in Wainuiomata is hosting an afternoon of sacred songs and Broadway songs as part of a fundraiser. Tickets are $20, with money going towards the potential building of a community hall at the church. Special guest will be Ohio tenor Joseph Moorman who will be singing and presenting the event. The event starts at 2pm and will be on August 19.

Hutt’s Got Talent The Hutt’s Got Talent event, in association with GoodTime Music Academy, is on once again as part of the Hutt Winter Festival. The first heat is on Monday, August 13 and there’s more than $1500 worth of prizes up for grabs. The first place winner will also get to perform at the Hutt Winter Festival main-stage on Saturday, August 18. The final showcase is on Friday, August 17 from 7pm-9pm. More info can be found at eventfinda.

Police seek information The Friends of Baring Head team had a busy day of planting over the weekend. PHOTO: Sophie Manson. By Sophie Manson

Friends of Baring Head brought together a team of passionate conservationists to plant more than 400 native trees and plants over the weekend. The event is part of an ongoing project to plant natives along the entirety of the Wainuiomata River. Baring Head, part of the East Harbour Regional Park, is a coastal area south of Wainuiomata. Not only is the area culturally and historically important, but it is of significant conservation importance as well.

The Wainuiomata River is home to several rare species of animals and plants, such as Kakahi (freshwater mussels), which have been listed as threatened by New Zealand’s Environmental Reporting Series. Baring Head also boasts relatively large native lizard populations and is used by several species of seabird for nesting purposes. Over the weekend, the team planted Ngaio trees alongside the mouth of the river, chosen because they grow quickly considering the harsh, coastal conditions and they will provide shelter for more delicate,

native species once grown. Events such as these are crucial in reaching Friends of Baring Head’s goal of planting along the entirety of the river. The trust has teamed up with other local conservation groups to work towards a whole-catchment approach, which will in turn allow more conservation work to take place. “ Wa i nu iom at a P r i m a r y School has started planting the river edge behind the school,” says Paula Warren, chairwoman of Friends of Baring Head, “with plants provided through the whole-catchment coalition.”

Protecting Baring Head will not only be crucial for preserving native wildlife in the area, but it will do wonders for the local community. “People use the area for all sorts of recreation,” says Paula, “Wainuiomata could advertise itself as an adventure gateway.” Work is also being done to renovate the historic buildings on Baring Head. “Once the cycleway is complete, the lighthouse complex is available for accommodation, and there is a visitor centre, visitor numbers are expected to increase rapidly…meaning potential business for Wainuiomata.”

Hutt Valley Police are renewing their appeal for assistance from the public in relation to the death of Paul TeHiko earlier this year. The 40-year-old builder died of a gunshot wound at his Wainuiomata address on Jack Vaughan Grove on March 7. Anyone who has any information is urged to contact Police or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

inbrief news Calls for local Maori to join the Maori roll The Wainuiomata Maori Committee is calling on local residents of Maori descent to consider joining the Maori roll. People have until August 2 to choose whether to be registered on the General or Maori roll for the next two General New Zealand Elections. Being on the Maori roll means voters will choose a candidate standing in the Maori electorate. However, they can still choose their preferred party through the party vote.

Pest plan targets healthy environment There are many ways pest, plants and animals can undermine our biodiversity and primary production and as a consequence, seriously threaten the health of our native and productive plants and animals. Greater Wellington Regional Council’s proposed regional pest management plan is now out for public consultation. It charts how the public can work together as a community to create sustainable regional biosecurity by eradicating, containing or controlling the pest plants and animals that compromise our environment. The plan will minimise the adverse environmental effects of pest plants and animals through co-ordinating activity which will exclude them from the region, reduce their number or contain and monitor them in particular locations.

Unlicensed builder fined An unlicensed roofer from Upper Hutt, who falsely held himself out as a Licensed Building Practitioner, has been prosecuted in the Wellington District Court. Aaron Wells led a homeowner to believe he was an LBP and licensed to supervise and sign off restricted building work on the roof of the Upper Hutt home. He was fined $2,500 and ordered to pay $2,500 in reparations to the homeowner for financial loss and emotional harm.

Wainuiomata aims for Tauranga sevens tournament By Sophie Manson

Wainuiomata Intermediate have managed to raise the funds necessary to take 12 year seven and eight students to the 2018 Anchor AIMS Games Rugby Sevens Tournament later this year. The AIMS Games is an international sporting tournament taking place in Tauranga in September and covers a number of sporting codes, from swimming to BMX biking. Wainuiomata Intermediate will be one of only two schools competing from the Wellington region. The sevens team started fundraising back in February at the beginning of term one. They have now amounted a total of $8500 to help with costs. With the help of dedicated members of the school staff, the team raised the funds by organising movie nights, chop suey nights, and selling raffle

tickets. In addition to these events the team also managed to secure several sponsors in order to reach their goal. The boys have been training twice a week since March and are eager to get on their way. “This is our first time going to the AIMS Games,” says Josh Le’afa-Paki, one of the boys heading up to Tauranga, “I’m very excited…I think we’ve got a chance,” he says.

Wainuiomata Intermediate are no strangers to sevens, but this is something else, says Ihaia Waenga, another heading to the tournament. “I’ve been to a sevens tournament before, but nothing this big,” he says. Ihaia adds that in order to stay in the team, you had to be dedicated from the beginning. “One of the big rules was you had to stay committed, and there’s training Tuesdays and

Thursdays which was a big commitment,” he says. Isaac Hayes, the team’s manager, hopes that going to the competition will become a regular thing for Wainuiomata Intermediate. He says that not only does he want the boys to attend next year but hopes that they will be able to take a girls’ team as well. The tournament runs from the September 9 to 14.

Lower Hutt company fined $37,500 for quake-prone building A Lower Hutt company has been fined $37,500 for failing to complete earthquake strengthening of a residential building it owns in Petone – the first prosecution of its kind in New Zealand. The case centres on an earthquake-prone building notice issued to the company in 2008, and follows years of repeated attempts by Hutt City Council to get Alura Ltd to strengthen the building to a safe standard. Alura was fined $37,500 after earlier pleading guilty to one charge under the Building Act.


The building is at 307 Jackson Street, located within the Jackson Street Heritage Precinct. The charge carried a maximum fine of $200,000. In his sentencing decision, the Judge described Alura’s failure to strengthen or demolish the building for almost a decade as “egregious”. He explained the sentence reflects the risk the building poses to human life, the length of time Alura failed to comply with the notice, and the need to deter other earthquake-prone building owners from delaying

strengthening or demolition. In his decision, he said: “The defendant has continued to generate rental income from residential tenants, who have been put at risk by the defendant’s non-compliance.” Council Divisional Manager, Environmental Consents, Helen Oram, says the Judge’s sentencing comments mirror Council’s key concerns. She says the Judge appears to share Council’s overriding concern for the safety of Alura’s tenants, those visiting the building and pedestrians passing by.

“As a nation, we learnt some harsh lessons from the Christchurch and Kaikoura quakes, and local authorities and property owners need to keep these lessons top of mind. “One of Council’s main aims when taking this prosecution was to send the message to other building owners, who might be thinking about dragging their feet on earthquake strengthening, that they need to think again.” Last month, Council issued a notice for occupants to vacate the building so it could be strengthened or demolished.

Making it easier for patients to make an appointment Thinking about what’s convenient for patients is behind a new initiative being introduced in two Hutt Valley general practices this month. Ropata Medical Centre and Hutt City Health Centre are making it easier for their patients get in touch, whether it’s online, by having more appointments available after work, or by talking to their GP on the phone. Patients calling these practices

first thing in the morning who are requesting an appointment that day may talk directly to a GP or nurse. Raewyn Montgomery, from Hutt City Health Centre, says talking to a health professional means some issues can be resolved over the phone, saving patients time and the hassle of coming into the practice. Instead of coming into one of the old drop-in clinics in the afternoon and hoping you won’t have to wait

too long to be seen, she says people can call first thing and they may have a conversation with their GP or nurse. “If they need to be seen that day, we’ll arrange that. Or it might make more sense to ask them to get some tests done before an appointment later in the week, so we have the best information to hand when we do see them,” Raewyn says. “We want to provide the care our patients need, while making the

best use of their time,” she says. Both Hutt City Health Centre and Ropata Medical Centre offer extended opening hours, increasing the opportunity for patients to see their doctor outside of normal working hours. Greater flexibility of hours means patients may not need to take time off work and potentially lose income. Hutt Valley District Health Board’s Helene Carbonatto says the DHB, which established this

model in the Hutt Valley region and funds the programme, wants to remove the barriers many people face when accessing healthcare. “We were very pleased to be able to build a model in the Hutt that supports patients to play a greater role in in how they access and use their own healthcare services.” More than 30,000 people are enrolled with Hutt City Health Centre and Ropata Medical Centre collectively.

A new birthing centre has opened in Lower Hutt providing another choice for women in the region. The new centre comes after more than 40 years of mothers requesting this service, and is the greater Wellington region’s first primary birthing centre. The centre, named Te Awakairangi for the first people to inhabit this area, opened on July 16 and will also provide, free of charge, to birthing mothers a post-natal stay of up to two nights for rest, breastfeeding support, and mother-baby education. Te Awakairangi is the newest centre for Birthing Centre Ltd, a registered charity supported by the Wright Family Foundation. Chloe Wright, chief executive officer of Birthing Centre Ltd, says birthing centres are part of the foundation’s vision to support New Zealand families from the very beginning to have the greatest impact on communities. “In the Hutt Valley, the only birth place options have been home or hospital. We know from experience and from the research that healthy, pregnant (low risk) women are safe to birth at home or in a birth centre and they have high levels of satisfaction and increased breastfeeding rates. “We are excited to see the Melling birthing centre open as soon as possible. To make this long-awaited birthing centre a success, birth hub is looking forward to a strong alliance between the Hutt DHB, Birthing Centre Ltd, midwives, mums and their whanau.” She says it is imperative a mother gets the best extended care, nurture and education she needs and deserves. “Parents are the first teachers - it’s about best beginnings, love and bonding,” Chloe says. “It’s about the wellbeing of the whole person, and the answer lies in the community - people connecting to each other and supporting each other,” she says. The opening was well attended by a number of community outfits, as well as many local mums.

Hutt City Council adopts Long Term Plan – prioritises rejuvenation and low rates

Hutt City Council has adopted its 2018-2028 Long Term Plan, which strikes a careful balance of investing in rejuvenation of the city, while providing efficient core services and wellmaintained infrastructure, and keeping rates low for residents. The average rates increase for Lower Hutt this year is 1.5 per cent for existing ratepayers, with Council receiving a further 1 per cent rates revenue from growth due to new builds and property investment. This equates to a rates revenue increase of 2.5 per cent overall. Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace said he was incredibly proud of the Long Term Plan, and thanked the community for their input. “Input from the community is crucial to getting this right. We received a lot of feedback on our plan and we have taken that on board in our decision-making,” Ray says. “Our focus for the next ten years is to maintain the momentum of

investing in things that will make Lower Hutt an outstanding city, while keeping rates increases affordable for our community. “Over the next ten years, we’ll be working hard to make sure that every dollar we receive from our ratepayers is spent responsibly,” he says. Key items in the plan also include all council staff being paid no less than $20.55 per hour as part of the current Living Wage and $105,000 to be spent in 2018/19 for the development of a strategy to tackle homelessness in Lower Hutt. The three rating policies have also been changed, meaning eligible sports and community groups will have their general rates reduced by 50 per cent; and eligible residential ratepayers aged 65 years and over, will have an option to postpone the payment of their rates, subject to conditions and criteria. The full 2018-2028 Long Term Plan will be published on the Hutt City Council website.

Patience appreciated around public transport Greater Wellington Regional Council’s chairman Chris Laidlaw is asking for people to continue to be patient while the new bus network gets

moving. Chris says any change of this scale and complexity was bound to bring with it a degree of disruption and discomfort

Summer Bodies are Made in Winter We know it’s important to be consistent and look after our health and fitness all year round, yet we may be tempted to neglect our bodies in winter, and spend too much time on the couch munching snack foods. We might also be dreaming about the warm weather ahead, with outdoor sports and lounging on the beach. Instead of leaving it until the last minute to get in shape, why not make use of the colder months to prepare our bodies for summer? Worth its weight Weight training a few times a week or more helps burn calories, sculpts muscle, and improves core strength in preparation for summer activities. Daytime vegan Try this idea: eat only plant foods during the day, and then eat whatever you feel like in the evening. It’s a relatively easy way to reduce the intake of calorie-laden animal and dairy products without risking cravings. Mini fasts Increasing the time between intakes of food is an effective way to lose weight and feel great. Eliminate snacking between meals and your body will have time to burn its reserves of fuel properly. Cooked plants Raw salads might be the health rage, yet cooked veges are satisfying, and easier to digest. Prepare plenty and take any leftovers to work for lunch the next day.

Fresh air Go for a walk in the clear winter air and take plenty of deep breaths. Regular exposure to fresh air has many health benefits, including increased energy, improved digestion, clean lungs, and a bolstered immune system. Join the club Remember to focus on the positives – it might seem like hard work in the rain and cold but it will definitely pay off. There’s no need to go it alone, either. Consider joining a local exercise club, boxfit class, or gym.

in the early stages, and so it proved with the introduction of the new bus network recently. An overhaul of the region’s bus network happened in early July and saw many new bus routes rolled out and the addition of a new bus fleet. “We know there has been disruption for some and we understand the impact of this change on many of our customers. We appreciate the patience they have shown as the new system settles in,” Chris says. Though some are asking why Wellington needed to undertake

this exercise, when the old system was seemingly working perfectly well, Chris says the reality is that the city had no choice. “The region is growing and the customer base is spreading further into the outer suburbs,” Chris says. “It wasn’t an option to simply go on adding extra buses to a network that was no longer fit for purpose. To have done so would only have added to the congestion in the inner city, and failed to address the transport needs of our newer and fast-growing suburbs.” Chris says to have done nothing would have been irresponsible

and would have left a much larger problem for future councils to have to deal with. “There will be further discomfort still to come in the next week or so as the network settles in and we all develop the new routines and habits we need to get the best out of the new system. “Each day sees more services running to schedule and I’m confident that when we all get used to the new network we’ll feel that the early discomfort was worth it, with more people being able to use our public transport to go to more places, more often,” he says.

Wainui’s answer to Ticketmaster Tickets for Wainuiomata Little Theatre’s August production of The Phantom of the Opera are on sale at Clive’s Chemist on Queen Street and selling fast. Barry Paterson, from Wainuiomata Little Theatre, says Clive has been an unbelievable supporter of the theatre over the years and has been our major ticket outlet for six years now. He says “everyone in Wainuiomata knows Clive and his amazing team and our theatre are so thank ful for Clive’s support.” Barry believes Clive has a secret passion to be up onstage and has been encouraging Clive to perform onstage now for five years. “I think the whole valley would love to see Clive perform,” Barry says. Wainuiomata Little Theatre would like to thank Clive and all our Wainuiomata community supporters.

Ulalei on top in second division Ulalei’s premier two team are dominating the top of the table following another consecutive win. Ulalei Wainuiomata Netball Club have three teams, its premier one team and senior one team had another unfortunate weekend coming up short against their opponents. The premier two team continue to look strong in the premier two division with a recent classy performance against Upper Hutt Maidstone United. Without their main midcourt and defensive players, the team called on Jamie-Rose Kydd and Tahaani Hepi from the senior one side to fill in. Jamie-Rose and Tahaani enjoyed playing with this master class gaining confidence as the game progressed. The Ulalei side remain unbeaten at the top of their division. “We are pleased with the result. It’s was great having the girls from Ulalei 3 play for us too. Our last game of the round is against Naenae Collegians United 2. They

are also unbeaten. So it should be a good match leading into the finals,” Alicia Colledge, the team’s goal attack. The final score was 80-48. In division one, Ulalei’s premier one team suffered their second successive loss of the round going down to Naenae Collegians United, 52-36. Missing one of their main defenders in the first half, Ulalei was down 28-16. Gene Solia-Gibbs joined the game in the third quarter working well with fellow defender Rachel Savelio. Ulalei closed the gap to be within four goals until Savelio suffered a dislocated shoulder midway in the third quarter. Naenae capitalised on the loss of Savelio carrying on with a convincing win. Ulalei must win the last game of the round this weekend against Upper Hutt Maidstone United to secure a top four spot for the finals. The senior ones, also know as the

young guns, lost against Naenae Collegians United, 37-25. “We are disappointed with the loss as we know we could’ve played better. We now need to

regroup and win our final game of the round against WASC 1,” says Jamie-Rose Kydd, who had a strong game in the wing attack and centre positions.

The games this weekend start off with the premier two team at 9am, followed by the premier ones at 10.30am and the senior one side at 12pm.

Reserves through to rugby league grand final Wainuiomata had the perfect start to semi-finals football at Wise Park on Saturday when the rugby league club’s premier reserves overcame a very strong and determined University Hunters side. The reserves secured a spot in the Wellington grand final thanks to a 30-26 win. The grand final is set to be played at Jerry Collins Stadium this Saturday, with kick off at 1pm. The Wainuiomata Lions will be up against the Titahi Bay Marlins, who also had to work hard for a win over the Trentham Titans. The curtain raiser game set the scene for the faithflu Wainuiomata supporters as they packed the park for the main game, hoping the Lions could make it two from two.

NZ rep from Wainuiomata The World Sport Stacking Association NZ has announced that the 2019 NZ Black Stacks team and a Wainuiomata man has made the cut once again.

Paki left the field after five minutes due to a head injury. The University Hunters applied a lot of pressure on the Lions completing their sets and defending well in the first half to take the lead at half-time, 16-8. The Lions needed a big second half to get back into the game but unforced errors and penalties, as well as difficult handling in the strong wind and a sin bin late in the game, meant they fell short losing 24-22. Stand outs for the Lions were forwards Johnny Skinnon, Trei Mu and Lokeni Saumolia with Zane Wilson and Bree Henderson working hard in the backs. Try scorers for the Lions were Dominik Bartels, Jaden Taniwha, John-Tahana Wharepapa-Rawiri, Isiah Tuari and Te Aorere Wanoa with Bree landing the conversion.

The rise of Richie must see him in black regularly If Richie Mo’unga isn’t picked in the All Blacks squad for every Rugby Championship game over the next six weeks, it will be a travesty. The Crusaders No 10 completely outplayed his opposite and incumbent All Black No 10 Beauden Barrett in the Crusaders’ 30-12 Super Rugby semifinal demolition of the Hurricanes in Christchurch on Saturday night. Sorry to say Canes fans, it wasn’t for the first time. The Crusaders forward pack is easily the best in the competition and playing behind a pack which is always going forward can only help Mo’unga’s game. The Hurricanes, by contrast, are all sizzle and no substance and they were found out again in a big match

situation. All Black coach Steve Hansen will not change his tried and tested formula and it’s expected Barrett will remain the first choice 10. However, Mo’unga deserves his spot on the bench. The quest to mould Damian McKenzie into the next national No 10 is a work in progress. The Chiefs pivot still seems best suited to fullback where he has more time and space to use his footwork and speed. Mo’unga has been the most consistent first-five in New Zealand rugby over the last 12 months and if the All Black selectors continue to undervalue that fact, then he may join the mass departures from the Kiwi game.
