The Johnsonville Fire Brigade is gearing up for a very special jubilee over the weekend of September 28-29. Members and former members will celebrate 75 years of service to the community and on Saturday morning, invitations were going out with some old-timers down at the station tracking ex-members’ addresses for the big weekend. There was also some reminiscing already beginning, with memories of big fires they have attended. Continued on page 2. Some of Johnsonville’s firefighters met with their “oldtimers’ on Saturday morning as they planned their 75th jubilee. In the cab are former fire chief Patrick “Jack” Feeney and Roy McMahon.

75th jubilee for Johnsonville Volunteer Fire Brigade Continued from page 1. North Timber and Hardware was a massive blaze, with the building being razed to the ground in Johnsonville in 1998 and Johnsonville School was another big call-out. Officer-in-charge Warren Field is a volunteer firefighter who has been with the local brigade for 42 years. He says the local station is a combination one, with both
volunteers and New Zealand Fire and Emergency Service employees. That’s because, he says, Johnsonville is a key station so there has to be someone on site at all times. The rest of the crews are called in by text or pagers. “There’s no siren either – the motel next door wouldn’t appreciate that, “ says former fire chief Patrick “Jack” Feeney.
The brass bell in the common room. Is a reminder of the past - purely decorative, having been souvenired from one of the half dozen former British Defence Forces Green Goddess appliances brought here to fill a shortage in 2004, at which time sirens were installed. Another reminder of the past is the almost complete collection of fire helmets worn over the brigade’s 75 years, the
oldest, like the bell, of heavy brass. And if you are interested, the brigade has some vacancies for new members. It does mean a time commitment, and once you are through local training, you go to Rotorua for a week of more intensive training. But the sense of camaraderie is obvious amongst the group, as is the commitment to service to the community.
Young musicians celebrate win By Glenise Dreaver
Milly Isac, in Year 11 at Samuel Marsden College, is a talented young pianist who has had two big musical moments over the last few weeks. As a member of the chamber music trio, Timeless Trio, there was the Gold Award at the Chamber Music New Zealand national secondary school championship finals at the weekend. One of six national finalists, they also won the People’s Choice award. This had followed their win in the Wellington district finals, then regionals in Napier, becoming one of eight groups nationwide who achieved a callback to the nationals. Then came the win in the national finals, having already won the KBB prize in the district round for the best group with a wind instrument. In mid-July, Milly (Amelia) was also one of 16 semifinalists in the 2018 Wallace National Junior Piano Competition (WNJPC). This is a nationwide classical piano competition for New Zealand’s best pre-tertiary

pianists, competing for a total prize pool of $4000 at the University of Auckland’s School of Music. Though Milly did not quite make it to the finals, there was the opportunity for master
classes that she was pleased to take advantage of. Milly, who practices for about three hours a day, had added her trio rehearsals to an already busy schedule, She says she still has two
more years of school to go after this one and she has not yet decided whether music will be her speciality. “I have lots of interests. I love school, I love sport. I love everything.”

On Saturday, the Johnsonville Rugby Football Club had a very proud day, of the sort not seen for some seasons, by winning two titles on a single day. Firstly, the Premier Reserves won the HD Morgan Memorial Cup final vs Petone at the Petone Rec. The boys took a chartered bus out to the game and this set the tone for the day. It was a rather nervous start and with Petone running with the wind we let three penalty
goals go through and then a converted try to be down 0-16 after 25 minutes. It was looking like too tough a task on the day. However, the boys were able to get back into the game with an important try, just before the break, to Campbell Tait so we went in 7-16 down. From there, with the wind at the backs it only got better and we were able to score the next two tries to then lead 19-16 with only eight minutes left. Unfortunately, Petone put up a big fight in those dying
minutes to tie it up 19-19 and forced extra time! It then came down to fitness and ticker. We were able to repel Petone in the first half of extra time and then had the wind at our backs for the second 10-minute stint. We were awarded a penalty pretty much on halfway early into the second half and Oakley Edmonds was able to nail it, which ended up being the difference and the boys held on for a historic win, 22-19 - the only team to beat Petone three times this year. In the later game, back at

This was the fourth final the team has made in a row and the third out of those four against that same foe. On the day, it was like the Reserves game and the boys struggled to get into the game. T hey were down ea rly. However, the side showing their finals mettle were able to dominate the middle part of the game to put on three tries and set up a 32-22 win!

inbrief news Pyjama appeal huge success The greater Wellington Community has donated over 7000 pairs of pyjamas to Wellington Hospital’s Foundation’s Hospi’s Pyjamas for Winter appeal. Families, kindergartens, schools, community groups, businesses, and hundreds of individuals come together to donate pyjamas or make a monetary donation online. A hospital spokesperson said they had been “blown away” with Wellington’s generosity. Charlotte Stanczuk said one mother told them that she had never, ever been able to provide new pyjamas for any of her kids. Community nurses have also been distributing pyjamas to needy children when visiting young patients at home and pyjamas have been distributed throughout Wellington, Kenepuru, Kapiti, and Masterton.
Chinese-NZ studies funds Applications are invited for the current funding round of the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust. They close on 26 September 26. The Trust distributes up to $150,000 in grants a year, across two funding rounds. Funding supports activities that help preserve Chinese New Zealand history, raise awareness of the contributions of early Chinese settlers, and provide tangible support for Chinese New Zealanders’ history, language and culture. Recent trust grants have assisted with commissioned works which share the histories of New Zealand’s Chinese fruit shops, laundries, churches and merchants, and war refugees. To apply, visit the Community Matters website: www.communitymatters.qovt.nz or phone 0800 824 824.
Bus chaos strikes hard in northern suburbs By Glenise Dreaver
One frustrated Wadestown woman – not ready to be named – is so frustrated by the redesigned Metlink bus services she says she is going to “do a Sonia Davies”. Sonia, a well-known unionist, political activist and Labour MP, was famous for her 1955 ”sit in”, trying to stop the destruction of the train line from Nelson to Glenhope. Our reader is waiting for the work on the Wadestown water pipes to be completed before lying on the bus route. “Because the poor drivers have enough to contend with getting those buses up those dreadful roads,” she says. Hers is only one voice in a barrage of Wellington-wide complaints about changed routes and

chaos surrounding timetabling, “bunching” of buses and errors by untrained drivers which have followed the Greater Wellington Regional Council’s new Metlink bus service, introduced on July 15. National List MP Nicola Willis says she has had a “flood” of complaints. A former political
analyst, Nicola used her experience to create a survey, reflecting feedback about delays for commuters getting to and from work, difficulties for school students, and challenges for elderly passengers getting across town. She comments that many former bus users say they are being forced to use a car or taxi. Six hundred and fifty-plus people responded to her online survey. “Eighty four percent of people who replied are either dissatisfied or extremely dissatisfied with the service,” she says. “And 73 per cent say they are less likely to use a bus than they were before.” While the survey was Wellington-wide, Karori emerged as the area of most concern. “The routes and timetables clearly need revisited.”
She’s unimpressed by the GWRC responses. “They are dismissive. People are being told to wait for changes. But the matter is urgent.” She is also organising a petition, which in the first few days has drawn over 140 responses she says. Her plans to call a meeting with GWRC in her Beehive office on Monday were however deferred, as GWRC have come back to her saying they will be trying to address some of her concerns. There is a meeting about the situation at a meeting of the Sustainable Transport Committee today, and GWRC will come back to a meeting at Parliament on Thursday at midday. Nicola is also organising a public meeting about the issue on August 30 to be held in the Karori Community Centre.
Menzshed supports kindergarten Grace Kindergarten in Ngaio had its playground built when it first opened in 1994, some 24 years ago. “Needless to say our “bus” was past its best and needed replacing,” says kindy Board of Management chairperson Blair McDonald . The grandfather of an exstudent, John Penwarden, heard about the problem. He volunteers with the Kapiti MenzShed and the men there offered to build the kindy a new bus. “We are delighted with the end result,” Blair says. “The children returned from the Term 2 holidays to find a bright new bus in our playground with lots of new buttons and levers. It is a substantial improvement over the old one and another bright and fun piece of equipment we
have in our improved playground area.” “Grace Kindergarten’s Board of Management wants to acknowledge the significant time and labour that went into making the new bus. This was something that could never have been bought from a playground equipment supplier. “We especially acknowledge the Penwarden family for organising the creation of the bus and their generous donation for materials.” The Kapiti MenzShed does not restrict its activities to Kapiti, being very active across the Wellington area. For example they undertook the building of all 5270 Anzac crosses installed at the Wellington Botanical Gardens. “We are always on the look-out for new projects to work on or get involved with,” says co-

Buses The big issue for our area at the moment is the performance of the new public bus service that has been implemented by Greater Wellington Regional Council’s public transport group (Metlink). There continues to be a number of real concerns from residents and I am advocating strongly that these concerns are listened to and addressed by GWRC. There are two local public meeting currently being organised by WCC councilors in conjunction with GWRC and local MPs · Karori/Northland- 30th August 2018, 7.30pm (venue to be confirmed) · Khandallah/Ngaio/Broadmeadows- 4th September 2018, 7.30pm Khandallah Town Hall Naming of new streets In Crofton Downs WCC is seeking feedback on the naming of new street. Would you like to see te reo Maori names of native flora/fauna, names recognising local women or should the Winston Churchill theme be continued?

A group of Year 2 and 3 Karori Normal School pupils did their bit to raise funds for the SPCA with their participation in its nationwide Cupcake Day on Monday. Naomi Lane, mother of Kate and Sarah, says the girls and their Room 10 classmates were
inspired to participate after their teacher rescued a cat he found in his garden. “He had a positive experience dealing with them and thought about building a project around that,” she says. “He did some online research
and signed his class on to doing the Cupcake Day. It was a nice community event involving the kids.” The cupcake stall, featuring a wide range of flavours and decorations, was held at a nearby parent’s garage after school.

Naomi Williams, Newlands “I haven’t thought about it, but I do want the best for my son, with more one to one.”
Raksha Goundar, Newlands “The strike’s a great idea. It’s been 25 years since the last one and they work really hard.”
Rod Fabish, Oriental Bay “They shouldn’t have to, but they probably will. It’s the only way to get proper recognition.”
Sarah Walsh, Newlands “If they feel unfairly paid – yes. It’s a very important job.”
Kerry Hight, Newlands “I’ll support whatever they think is right. They do an amazing job.”
Change of heart on Winston
Peter Dunne - praise for Winston Peters
Former Ohariu MP Peter Dunne is known for vitriolic criticism of Winston Peters. But the retired leader of the United Futures Party has the highest praise for the way the Deputy Prime Minister has conducted himself during PM Jacinda Adern’s six weeks of maternity leave. “His performance has dumbfounded many of his critics,” he says, adding that the PM will not be leading the same government she left. “The Labour/New Zealand First coalition, supported by the Greens, has undergone a
subtle but perceptible change.” He describes Winston Peters’ handling of the PM role as “seamless …. a combination of uncharacteristic understatement but firmness which has reinforced his authority. “A government that looked vague and indecisive a few weeks ago now seems to have a little more cohesion and purpose about it.” Ministers are no longer showing the previous “almost monotonous” propensity to contradict each other in public, Peter says. While this may be nothing to do with the acting PM, “maybe the government is at last finding its feet”, he thinks that unlikely. “The measured and less ‘golly gosh’ bumbling approach Mr Peters provided has had a flow-on effect across the team, reflecting his guile and experience.”
He says it had been expected that Labour heavyweights like Grant Robertson and David Parker would be Mr Peters’ minders. Instead, he says, Grant Robertson has remained the most “affable but invisible” Minister of Finance in more than 50 years, and David Parker has also disappeared from public view. “His own performance has been atypically low-key and Mr Peters has shown he can be a relatively safe pair of hands. He doesn’t need guidance. “I expect he will now consider he should play a much more prominent role in the leadership and direction of the government. “And the wily Deputy PM can continue to smile smugly, because what was a Labourled administration is now a New Zealand First/Labour Government.”
Johnsonville Community Hub takes shape Wellington City Council is already engaging with local iwi about commissioning a meaningful piece of art for Johnsonville’s new Waitohi Community Hub. And a council spokesperson reports that construction of the $22m hub, on the corner of Moorefield Road and Frankmoore Avenue, is on track to open in December 2019. The new library will be larger than the existing one, and what is described as “a flexible, modern space” is to be complemented by the latest technology and an on-site cafe. It will also link up to the WCC Keith Spry Pool, kindergarten, memorial park and the Johnsonville Community Centre. This is deemed necessary to cater for the 10,000 more people expected to live in Johnsonville in the next 20 years. The foundation slabs for the hub will be poured next week while later in the month, the first of the structural steel will arrive.
A crane is also due on site this month. Wellington Mayor Justin Lester, who lives in Johnsonville, says everyone will be excited to see the shaping of what will be a huge community asset, saying their attention can now turn to the internal fit-out. And Jill Day, Deputy Mayor and Northern Ward councillor, says it is crucial the hub engages with young people of the northern suburbs. “We want a space they call their own, whether it be for study, programming, coding class or kicking back with a great book,” she says. Schools, teachers and community clubs will all be called on to give their opinions on what could be in the hub. Johnsonville has also placed a lot of i mpor t a nce on havi ng a g r e a t c a fé, s ays Ju st i n. “We to want to see a thriving, fit-forpurpose, operator in this space.” Between now and November a team will be developing the “best commercial model” before going to tender.

Help is always at hand
By Glenise Dreaver
Lorna joined the Samaritans in 1980. (We can’t tell you Lorna’s last name, because the Samaritans rule is that you are anonymous.) The long-time member will be out in the Karori Mall on Saturday doing her annual two-hour stint of fund-raising for the organisation, which provides a 24/7 support line for those dealing with difficulties, or grief and loneliness in their lives. For 38 years Lorna has done her shifts in the crypt of St Paul’s Cathedral, which the Anglican diocese gives to them free of charge. “We’re very fortunate with that,” she says. Her interest in the organisation began after she heard Chad Varah, the founder of the Samaritans, when he visited New Zealand. For the former teacher and college of education librarian, who at that time had four children at home, the time just wasn’t right. But Lorna remembered about it and as soon as she had time in her life, in 1980, she joined. She feels the job isn’t normally difficult. “It’s just listening really.” The funds she says, are needed mainly for phones and publicity, so that those in need know how to contact them. In Wellington, that number is 04 473 9739. Elsewhere, 0800 726 6661. So on Saturday, watch out for the collectors in their white aprons with the green trim, and give what you can.
A Wellington hīkoi to mark Maori Language Week will start at noon on Monday September 10 at Parliament grounds and continue through the centre of town to ‘Te Ngākau’ the newly-coined name for Civic Square. The week runs from Mahuru - September - 10-16.
For 38 years, Lorna has been a listening ear for those ringing the Samaritans helpline. PHOTO: Glenise Dreaver

The Garden Centre team at Mitre 10 Crofton Downs is rightly elated - they have been recognised for their excellent garden centre service, taking home the Mitre 10 Garden Centre Store of the Year award at their retailer’s national awards ceremony. Team Leader Eric Wortman said the judge was impressed by the way they made the most of the space, the good quality and
variety of plants, given the size of their centre. He admits to being “quite fussy” about how plants are displayed. Mitre 10 Crofton Downs owners, Brendan and Nicole Hall, praised the store’s garden centre team, saying the accolade reflects the determined effort to deliver firstclass customer service. “We have a knowledgeable team who works incredibly hard, and
it’s great to see them formally recognised for all their efforts and their continued focus on quality service,” Brendan says. Congratulations to Brendan and Nicole Hall and the rest of the team at Mitre 10 Crofton Downs. For many of your Wellington customers, the accolades reflect the wonderful service they receive every time they step into your store.

The organiser of the event, Cathryn Usher, has been helping various charities in Wellington for a few years but, for the past two years, she has worked with friends to support the Healthy Futures charity. As she had previously organised craft fairs in Ngaio, she felt the time was right for a craft fair to support them. The fair, named after the suburb’s postcode, offered a wide range of attractive, well-made crafts to tempt the local community.

What’s cool in the
Stonehenge Aotearoa — a window into the past Built by members of The Phoenix Astronomical Society with the support of the Royal Society of New Zealand, Stonehenge Aotearoa in the Wairarapa aims to encourage the rediscovery of the knowledge of our ancestors. Prehistoric stone circles, or henges, are found in many places throughout
the world and could be called ancient calendars which track the time and the seasons Stonehenge Aotearoa is a practical open-sky observatory inspired by the very famous prehistoric Stonehenge in England, whose construction predates even the pyramids. How the huge stones
were carried to that site remains a mystery. Stonehenge Wairarapa is more than just a replica of this mysterious ancient monument however, but a modern interpretation, based upon the many stone circles and astronomical stone structures scattered around the globe.

Newlands trust recognised in awards By Thomas Croskery
A fledgling Newlands community group has been recognised in the Wellington Community Awards. Te Mahuri Charitable Trust runs after-school sessions allowing children and their whānau to further their knowledge of Te reo Māori. In the annual Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards, the charity was the runner up in the ‘Rising Star’ category. Chairperson Megan Vant says the placement is a welcome recognition of the organisation’s work spreading Te Reo in the community. “We really feel that it is the exactly right award for us, because we are just starting out. What we do is going to be really great, but at the moment we’re just starting out. “Everybody’s really, really excited. Everything that we do is voluntary, and so it’s just nice to have that sort of recognition. “It’s just nice to have somebody else say what you’re doing is cool because we all think it’s neat and really, really exciting. It’s nice to have that go a bit
further.” Launched in February, the trust runs after school programmes in Newlands and Tawa, attended by students from several local primary schools. Children aged 2-14 learn and practise Te Reo through games, waiata and activities. Sessions are based on a learning ‘theme’, which many of the activities are built on. The organisation is still pursuing funding for basic supplies, and to pay two kaiārahi (guides or mentors), to extend children and parents’ knowledge and use of Te Reo. Vant says the trust has put forward some grant applications to various providers, and will keep applying. “We’re hoping once we’ve got the two sessions that we’re running really consolidated, we really hope we can open other sessions around the Wellington region provided there are keen, committed people who are wanting to run those sessions.” To contribute to Te Mahuri’s Givealittle campaign, visit the link below: https://givealittle. co.nz/org/te-mahuri-charitable-trust.

Northern football teams in a good place By Grant Stephen
North Wellington Football Club teams were in the thick of the action over the weekend as the winter season draws to a close. The Just Paterson Real Estate Men’s Reserve side continued their late season resurgence with a 4-0 win over Marist to retain second spot in the Division 2 competition. With just two points separating three teams, local supporters are holding on to their lucky charms for a win and the promotion that goes with it in the last match of the year this coming weekend. The Just Paterson Real Estate Men’s third team have already won their Division 4 grade and maintained their points margin and plus 50 goal difference due to an unfortunate
default by their opposition. In a top of the table clash, the New World Newlands Men’s Premier side made no race of it playing Upper Hutt away at Maidstone Park. The final score was 3-1 to North Wellington and Kiernan Mason-Hughes joined the hat trick club in his first full game for the team, using both his head and feet in some text-book finishes. The Under 17 youth side had a 1-all draw against Lower Hutt and are now placed second on the table. In the Women’s Executive Plate competition, New World Newlands didn’t have it all their own way but won comfortably in the end against Tawa by four goals to two. New World Churton Park also prevailed scoring three goals to Stop Out’s two.

Cantabs do right by champion Crusaders Hats off to the people of Canterbury for their support of the Super Rugby champion Crusaders on Saturday night. Cantabrians have received plenty of criticism for not filling their pop-up stadium over the past five years but Saturday’s 38-19 win over the bride’s maid Lions showed they will come out if the product is worth it. A sellout crwod of 19,500 people had the place rocking, I was there and enjoyed elements of my childhood in the buzz and atmosphere at the game. Hopefully that came across on television because the crowd was supportive, vocal and passionate to their own team and respectful to the Lions who lost their third consecutive final. Make no mistake, the stadium experience is poor and not worth the $82.50 for a second-tier ticket that I paid to be there. It was my first game at the stadium this year and I’m a fully eye-patched member of the crusade. The stadium is cramped, cold and clunky. It’s easy for people in other cities to
question Cantabrian support for their team but, as a big fan of all teams, there is competition for the entertainment dollar and there’s not much value in a rugby game in the middle of winter in that stadium. The atmosphere on Saturday night was decent by Kiwi standards. Generally, unless we are intoxicated, Kiwi crowds tend to sit on their hands and not do much unless their team does something worth getting vocal about. We aren’t a country of loud and proud cheer sections, perhaps our lineage to England runs deep. However Crusaders fans chanted for their team on defence, cheered when they were hot on attack and drowned out the final siren with a “back to back” chant. It was well deserved for a team that looked likely to win the competition on paper nine months before it started and never looked likely to lose that favourites tag once the season began. So for one week, lay off us Cantabs - we supported the right way and celebrated in great style.
