Kiwibank closure “crazy” By Glenise Dreaver

Cathie Guilford of Johnsonville is passionate about her community, and the people in it. And her passions have been aroused by the November 21 announcement from Kiwibank and NZ Post that their branches, housed together at 28 Johnsonville Road, are to be closed. She’s less than impressed by the assertion from Kiwibank general manager, retail distribution, Geoff Waller that in their review they looked at Kiwibank services “in close proximity”, as well as at the increasing numbers accessing banking services in different ways. Continued on page 2. Cathie Guilford of Johnsonville says the closure of the Johnsonville Kiwibank is “all about money” . PHOTO: Glenise Dreaver

Lower Hutt!” says Cathie, rolling her eyes. “Have these people even looked at a map?” And she wonders whether the fact that this is one of the fastest-growing areas of Wel-

Greg O’Connor, MP for Ohariu, calls the closure a “real blow”, and he has organised a public meeting for 7pm on Thursday December 6 at the Johnsonville Community Centre. “I have invited both CEOs to attend to hear from the people of Johnsonville about the impact this closure will have on our community,” he says. “Wellington City Council figures show immense population growth forecast over the next 25 years. “Johnsonville is forecast to grow by 18.5 percent, Grenada, Paparangi and Woodridge by nearly 64 percent, and Churton Park by 33.2 percent, against 18 percent average growth across the city, “These areas need a quality bank and postal service,” he says.

She’s frank that she’s not a Kiwibank customer, but she is deeply concerned for the community, especially for older or disabled people who don’t or can’t drive, who don’t have access to computers – and who don’t necessarily trust phones for their banking. In recent days she’s spoken to five different people, including one young mother of four who

writing to both CEO’s for an explanation, including what alternatives they had looked at. “Johnsonville is the largest township in Wellington outside the CBD.” The demographics should therefore, he says, be attractive to Kiwibank. However, he says he accepts commercial realities mandating decisions. The Johnsonville Community Association (JCA) is also protesting. President Simon Pleasants says that NZ Post documents released to them under the Official Information Act includes a NZ Post Board paper showing that Johnsonville Post Shop is part of a nationwide plan to replace all Post Shops with a “third-party hosted model”. “We’ll have to make do with a counter in some other shop -- it could be a petrol station, supermarket, pharmacy, or even a shipping container,” he says, adding that NZ Post has been so desperate to close their Post Shops that they even did deals with video stores. “You can guess how long that

says: “Tell them from me. Where the hell are we going to go now?” Cathie says it’s “crazy” that a New Zealand bank is thinking about closing branches. “It’s a betrayal of all the Kiwis who changed to Kiwbank simply because it was New Zealand-owned. “Not that it’s just them. It’s all banks. They’re all about money.” Geoff Waller says Kiwibank

1000 kilometres on a bike isn’t a totally unusual challenge. 1000 solo kilometres in a country where most people don’t speak English isn’t quite as ordinary. For Kathleen Wright of Ngaio, who had a significant birthday coming up, it was what she was looking for. A challenge. “Both physically and intellectually.” The idea grew over time, and her choice of Taiwan followed a presentation at an international social enterprise conference in Christchurch. She was there as CEO of SubUrban, Johnsonville’s notfor-profit company, which creates a working space outside the CBD that supports small businesses and social enterprises. The conference presenters told of the unlikely rejuvenation of the remote village of Taomi in central Taiwan, totally destroyed by a 1999 quake. The bamboo on which its shaky subsistence had relied also went. Kathleen heard that Taomi’s only unlikely asset was that the area had never had pesticides or insecticides used and it had 29 species of frogs and 39 damselflies. Eighteen years on, through partnerships with government, private businesses and the local university, Taomi is now

Rare chick hatches A rare takahe chick has hatched at Zealandia. It is estimated to have hatched a fortnight ago today (Wednesday). Zealandia’s conservation manager Dr Danielle Shanahan says they are delighted, but she is also cautious. “ This is nature and of course, anything could happen.” While Zealandia is predator-free, the chicks are vulnerable to wet spring weather and parents can struggle to find the right food. There fore the t ak ahe we tland is being closed for a few week s to give the birds space, and supplementary food is being supplied. The takahe parents, Nio and Orbell, came to Zealandia last year from Mana Island. At 14 and 18 respectively, they are nearing the end of their breeding age.

That’s what she’s now working towards on a larger scale, building on the SubUrban community which she, as founder and CEO, has nurtured for several years. “The trip helped me to decide: ‘If I die tomorrow, have I achieved the impact I want to?’ “Not yet!” Kathleen says firmly.

Landlords avoid insulation deadline A New Zealand real estate agent vetting service says property investors are selling up to avoid rental insulation costs. “We’re seeing an increase in investors making the decision whether to continue… due to pressure to insulate to the new standards,” Agent Finder New Zealand director Trish Willis says. She said she expects the trend to continue as the July 2019 deadline for insulating rental properties approaches. Tenancy Services has estimated it will cost landlords $3400 per house, excluding GST, to do both ceiling and floor for a 96sqm property if they use an installer. But if they don’t insulate by the deadline they could face the $4000 penalty which will go to their tenants.

New mural brightens up Ngaio underpass By Nico Hendricks

The Ngaio Crofton Downs Residents Association (NCDRA) has helped facilitate a new mural for the underpass near Ngaio railway station. Designed and executed by

Adrian Castle, the mural covers both sides of the underpass and features a series of native birds hand-drawn with blue and white paint. There are four of the most famous natives; the kereru, kaka, fantail or piwakawaka and tui.

“We’re doing this to brighten this [underpass] up,” Adrian says. Locals have been complimenting Adrian on his work as he puts the finishing touches to the mural. “In general, there’s been a

really positive vibe,” he says. “People seem really happy about it.” The underpass previously featured a series of dolphins that were often graffitied. Project manager and Ngaio resident Wendy Parker was keen to update the spot with a piece that better represented the suburb. “Dolphins are more of a south coast thing,” Wendy says. “This mural relates to Ngaio, something to display the suburb as a gateway to the bush.” Wendy says the mural is a community project being done by locals for locals, with the support of Wellington City Council. The NCDRA secured funds from the Wellington City Council and the Wellington Community Trust. The Crofton Downs Mitre 10 also contributed materials and some paint to the project.  If you’d like to see more of Adrian’s work, he can be found at adriancastle.com.

The Walk Through the Heart of the City on Saturday November 17, previewed in the Independent Herald (November 4, p.10), proved a great success. “We were blessed with a fine day and a tail wind,” says Leanne Havill, spokesperson for the Wellington Hospital Foundation, which was raising money for the refurbishment of their Heart and Lung Unit patient lounge. Leanne said about fifty people enjoyed the walking “and the barbecued chicken, salad and haloumi afterwards”. The Heart Foundation also had a display with recipe books and gave out heart-red apples she said. “Some participants had extra sponsorship with one person alone raising $200. “Our total was just over $1000.”

Addison Yee and Melina Hogg have already been featured doing a bake sale at Churton Park New World to raise funds for the Wellington Children’s Hospital. (The Independent Herald, October 31 p.15). The hospital’s fundraising officer, Clare Ennis, provided the girls with a list of different things they could purchase for the children and on Monday last week, they went to the hospital to deliver the goods. Clare said it was “perfect timing” to receive all the goodies now, as some would go

to the hospital but they might also be able to use some for Christmas presents. Clare also told Addison’s mum Donna Yee she was “blown away” by the girls’ efforts. While the girls were there, they also got to meet the hospital mascot Hospi and were given their own soft toy Hospi to keep. The Warehouse in Porirua was also great says Donna. “When the girls purchased the last of the items, they donated an extra $100 which was much appreciated.” WAS $3998

Karori Auto Services’ big move After 79 years in one location, Karori Auto Services are moving just two doors down to a brand new purpose-built workshop at 333 Karori Road. The official opening will take place at 10am on Saturday 15 December. The new 350-square-metre vehicle facility comprises more than four working bays with three hoists, with mezzanine floor and parts storage plus offices and customer waiting area. Now in his 39th year at Karori Auto Services, proprietor Craig Fair says he has had the move to larger premises on his agenda for at least 25 years. Several years ago, he moved a house off the new workshop site and began evaluating other suburban repair facilities for what would be practical for his site, and appropriate for the types of customers and vehicles he and his team cater for. Craig was able to gain the support of the majority of surrounding residents for the concrete block building, with off-street parkin, by using additional ceiling sound proofing, extensive seismic strengthening, natural lighting and landscaping. The ‘garage’ at 329 Karori Road has been part of the suburb since 1929. Original proprietor Joe Ashford built a garage and service station to go with his taxi service in front of his family home and ran the business until retiring at the end of 1963. Evan Currie and Malcolm Taylor were among several owners before Rob Galloway took over in the 1970s. It was Rob who offered Craig an apprenticeship in 1980. Just before his apprenticeship was completed in 1984, Craig took over the business and has run it ever since.

Craig thought of re-developing or moving for many years so in 2010, when the home on an 800-square-metre site became available just two doors down, he moved the house to a new site in Karori. So began a complicated journey which has culminated in the fine new premises that Karori Auto Services will operate from. “It is wonderful to have off-street parking, lots of natural light and a customer waiting area, and I will recruit another technician in 2019 because the extra space and equipment will mean we can put through more cars” Craig says. Classic and vintage cars have become a specialty for this business. “Some vehicles and their owners come from all over Wellington. In the 34 years I have run this business, I have done virtually no media advertising, because I prefer that word-of-mouth and to give a little bit of community support to let people know how good the service is and how appreciative we are of the continued custom we enjoy”. So Craig has made a huge investment in a bigger and better repair facility for the suburb – more room, with better equipment, and a construction which is strong and resilient, and built with the environment in mind. “I want to thank my team, our suppliers and Maycroft Construction and all the subcontractors for their support during this building phase, which has been completed through some pretty rough winter weather

conditions. And I must not forget my family. My wife, Ursula and daughter Jess have ‘travelled’ with me on this long journey and I could not have done it without them,” Craig points out. Tradition means a lot to Karori Auto Services. Craig says, that in future-proofing his business, he is continuing the tradition which Joe Ashford began when he built his workshop in front of his home at 329 Karori Road in 1929. Craig Fair has the last word: “Just as Joe Ashford was ahead of his time when he built his repair and servicing workshop that has certainly stood the test of time, we are now taking the next step into the future with better technology and much more efficiency, in line with the vehicle that we work on.”

Resident queries dog park survey Dog park a dog’s breakfast says Trevor Lloyd. PHOTO: Nico Hendricks

By Nico Hendricks

A Ngaio resident says Cummings Park’s status as a dog park is turning it into a dog’s breakfast. And Trevor Lloyd says keeping Cummings Park as a dog exercise area is a bad idea. “Its heavy use as a dog exercise area has destroyed the turf.” A Wellington City Council survey found 81 percent of people wanted to keep Cummings Park as a canine play area when the question was raised earlier this year. But Trevor, a long-serving, member of the Ngaio Residents Association (NCDRA), says this survey was biased. “Dog owners, and anyone with

an interest in dogs, had a much greater incentive to respond to the survey than other people in the community who, for years, have seen it as an unattractive place and have lost interest in it as a community recreational resource.” The NCDRA discussed restoring the turf with the WCC Trevor says, but budget restrictions halted progress. “You could restore the turf, but if it continues to be used for off-leash exercising it would soon deteriorate again because of the intensity of its use.” Trevor, while not averse to dogs himself, says people are put off by unleashed pooches jumping on them.

“It happened with my granddaughter. I took her down there, we just got into the park and a dog bounded up to her and scared the wits out of her. She’s had a fear of dogs ever since.” Trevor says some sections of the community are under-represented and would like to see Cummings Park changed. “By changed, we don’t mean banning dogs from the park, we simply mean that they would have to be kept on a leash.” Trevor understands why dog owners are attached to the park. “They love it for all the reasons any member of the community might love to be there, just to enjoy a nice bit of natural environment away from the hurly burly.”

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: Would you eat genetically-modified fruit and vegetables?

Christopher Simmons, Johnsonville “Prefer not to. It’s not natural.”

Sam Martin, Johnsonville “I prefer the natural stuff.”

Connor Lusty, Johnsonville “I’ll take the fresh, natural apple any day of the week,”

Lilly Zhang, Johnsonville “As long as there’s no lasting implications, I don’t mind it.”

Cathie Guilford, Johnsonville “What’s wrong with eating fruit off a tree?”

Ron Gardner, Ngaio “No. Wouldn’t like it. “

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville an attempt was made to break into a house in Bould Street in daylight. A deadbolt on the door frustrated an attempt to force it open. The intruder then smashed a front window with a rock but abandoned the attempt. The storeroom of premises in Norman Lane was entered through the roof/ceiling and four TVs were stolen, while a white Vagabond caravan parked overnight in Raroa Park on Burma Road was stolen.

In Newlands a young man was observed with a can of spray paint about to adorn a retaining wall in Promontory Crescent, which is Wellington City Council property. A member of the public challenged him and he replied that it was public property and he had the right to do it. However, he desisted and went off but returned later to apply letters in yellow paint each one a metre high and almost double that in width. A description of the of-

fender has been passed to Police. A house in Link Road was broken into via a smashed window in a forced back door while the occupant was asleep. It was later discovered that a new TV, a play station and games, and a handbag, had been taken. The handbag contained bank cards and prescription medication. One of the stolen bankcards has already been used in petrol stations in Porirua and Tawa. A black Audi A3 hatchback

parked during the day in Robert Street had its front registration plate stolen. In Khandallah the garage of a house in Khandallah Road was forcibly entered overnight by jemmying the door open. A quantity of weights and gym equipment was stolen. The key to a new house under construction in Cashmere Avenue was taken from its hiding place in the meter box and used to gain entry to the site. A quantity of tools was stolen.

In Churton Park a silver Mitsubishi Lancer saloon parked overnight in Burbank Crescent was broken into through a smashed left rear quarterlight window. The ignition had been pulled out in an attempt to start the vehicle but the theft was abandoned. Cash was taken from the coin tray. A house in Halswater Drive was broken into through a rear French door. Bank cards were stolen and have since been offered to retailers, but have been rejected.

In the article about the changes to the uniform of Queen Margaret College students (Independent Herald November 14, p.4) there were misattributions of comments , and an error in the photo caption, for which we sincerely apologise. It was Maya Elmes, a year 8 student, who made the comment about preferring the trousers, rather than Zara Kant. And the quote, “I quite like the pants because I’m a little less feminine than the others, but it still looks like formal uniform,” was also made by Maya, not Zara.

It was Zara who said: “It allows students to choose what they want to wear”. The photo from left, shows Zamantha Robinson, Maya Elmes, Jayne-Ann Young, Zara Kant.

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

With the arrival of spring and the warmer and often windier weather many people will be affected by hay fever. This is a common condition with rates in New Zealand being amongst the highest worldwide. Hay fever can make people feel quite miserable, with symptoms of itchy eyes, runny nose, sniffles, sneezes and headaches. These are very similar symptoms to the common cold. Symptoms of hay fever may not last long and can be more severe at certain times of the day, such as in the morning or evening when pollen counts are highest, as well as when the weather is hot and humid. Hay fever (also called allergic rhinitis) develops in some people because of an overactive immune system. This causes them to have allergic reactions to certain substances in the environment, generally called allergens or ‘triggers’. Pollens from flowers, grasses, trees and weeds are the most common allergens. “People who get hay fever at this time of year have what is known as seasonal allergic rhinitis”, advise Self Care pharmacists, “but not everyone with hay fever reacts to pollen only at springtime. Many people suffer from hay fever symptoms all year round. They can be sensitive to animal dander (dead skin cells from their pets), mould,

and the house dust mite – a microscopic animal that lives in the millions in our pillows, bedding, curtains and carpets”. In addition, cigarette smoke (yours or someone else’s), chemical fumes and dusts in certain workplaces, and sudden temperature changes can make hay fever symptoms worse by irritating an already-sensitive nose. Many hay fever sufferers also have other allergic conditions like asthma, eczema and food allergies - because of their over-active immune systems. The good news is that hay fever symptoms sometimes can be prevented and, usually, can be well-controlled. “Effective treatments are available”, say Self Care pharmacists, “but trying to avoid the things that ‘trigger’ your hay fever symptoms is a good first step. Ask us about the Hay fever fact card which has plenty of self care tips for avoiding pollens and other allergens.” If avoiding ‘triggers’ is not possible, antihistamine medicines can be effective. These block the action of the chemical histamine which is released in your body when you come into contact with an allergen. There are many different antihistamines to choose from, which are available as pills to take, or as nasal sprays to use directly in the nose. Some

antihistamines can make you sleepy and may affect your ability to drive. It is important to get advice from your Self Care pharmacist regarding the best antihistamine for you. For blocked noses, other medicines can be used, such as decongestant nasal sprays - but the use of these is limited. It is recommended that you use decongestant nasal sprays for up to 3 days at a time and then stop. The use of these sprays for any longer periods of time can lead to a condition known as rebound congestion occurring. There are also corticosteroid nasal sprays which are helpful for people with moderate-to-severe hay fever, and for those who get hay fever symptoms all year round. Corticosteroid nasal sprays take a few days to get to its full effect and should be used regularly everyday. This is recommended even when you don’t have any symptoms. They can be used for prevention but to be effective for this, they have to be started before you are in contact with the allergen. Hay fever treatments are successful at relieving the irritating symptoms and are available from your Self Care pharmacy, so talk with your Self Care pharmacy team, and get your free copy of the Hay fever fact card.

Over $10,000 was donated to local charity Challenge 2000 during their street collection last Thursday. Volunteers collected from Johnsonville, Thorndon, Khandallah and central Wellington throughout the day to raise money for community assistance projects. The organisation has an array of sponsors and partners but relies on the community for funding that isn’t secured by government contracts. The donations gathered on the day will go towards holiday programmes, family support, Christmas hampers and fuel for the Challenge 2000 van.

Challenge also does mission work for locals, including gardening, school leadership days and youth retreats. Founder Kitty McKinley says the charity was created on the principle of community improvement. “We challenge everyone to become the best version of themselves,” says Kitty. She adds that the charity was shown significant support last week, with one donor in Khandallah even buying bottles of water for the collectors. Megan Ratuki, Challenge 2000’s executive assistant, managed the collection on Thursday and added up the donations. “It’s been one of our more successful years,” she says, adding

that Challenge 2000 has a holistic approach to social outreach. “We don’t just focus on one segment of the community, we’re out there for everybody.” The organisation does significant youth work in schools around the Greater Wellington area, providing guidance and counselling for families in need of support. “We all know young people don’t come by themselves, they come with their families so we’re a very whanau-based organisation.” The volunteer collectors had a long day on Thursday with some hitting the streets at 7am. Despite the early start, Megan says the volunteers were keen to help. “Everybody goes hardcore for it.”

Some decisions defy common sense and need to be fought. The shutting down of the Kiwibank branch in Johnsonville, with the inevitable need to relocate the postal services elsewhere, really does ignore some realities. Firstly, our Northern suburbs are undergoing massive growth, with Churton Park, Newlands and Woodridge areas experiencing the sort of Greenfields development not happening anywhere else in Wellington, meaning the massive population growth which will see the Johnsonville shopping centre grow as it’s developed. And secondly, I hear considerable disquiet as I move around the electorate about the billions of dollars in profits being remitted to Australia by the big Aussie banks, and a desire to bank with a local bank to keep our money here. Any promotion by Kiwibank to leverage this concern in a growing market

will be wasted as they will have no presence. I encourage people to sign our petition which will be at various places around the electorate and on my Facebook page. This mix of online and physical presence is the sort of balance we would like the bank to deliver to cater for the range of demand in the area. I also invite and encourage as many people as possible to help overflow the Johnsonville Community Centre at 7pm on December 6 to express our objection to the closure. Come down with the family and neighbours and express your views. This is a great opportunity to show the decision makers they are making a big mistake shutting the bank, with the resultant impact on the Post Office. Johnsonville shopping centre is the hub of the area; we must retain a full range of services. I look forward to seeing you Greg.OConnor@parliament.govt.nz at the meeting. Facebook.com/GregOhariu

Top employment lawyer speaks out Johnsonville Rotary Club members were familiarised with what has become a hot issue nationally at their meeting of November 12, held in the Johnsonville Club Restaurant. Guest speaker was Stephanie Dyhrberg, one of New Zealand’s leading specialists in employment law, with 27 years’ experience. This year she has featured prominently in the media, including radio and TV, speaking on women’s rights, with particular attention to the treatment of women in some major law firms. Stephanie’s topic was “Women’s Rights in the Workplace” and she spoke to an audience of 48, which included Rotarians and guests. Her talk covered inappropriate behaviour to women and discrimination against women in the workplace. She said her key message to all women is “That it is OK to say ‘It is not OK.” She told the meeting: “Although many men I have encountered in my life have been professional, courteous and respectful towards me, like most women I know, many have been disrespectful, condescending and entitled about what they can say and do to me. “I have never been one to keep quiet about this, but this year I feel like I have had to fight for people’s safety and their right to be treated Johnsonville Rotary club president Neil Haydon with employment lawyer Stephanie Dyhrberg.

New law on pets in cars The AA and NZ Companion Animal Council are warning pet owners to not leave their four-legged friends in vehicles during the hot summer ahead as figures show no respite in the number of AA callouts for trapped pets. Since 2012, AA Roadservice has an average of 52 callouts a month or 637 callouts a year. By October 31 this year, Roadservice Officers had already attended more than 530 callouts for locked animals. AA National Roadservice Manager John Healy says pet owners should never leave their pet locked in a vehicle. “The temperature inside a vehicle with no or little ventilation rises rapidly, particularly in summer and it doesn’t take long before a pet gets agitated and suffers the effects of heat exhaustion which can have potentially fatal consequences.” As of October 1, if a dog left in a vehicle becomes heat stressed; the dog owner, vehicle owner and person left in charge of the dog can each be fined $300 under the Animal Welfare (Care and Procedure) Regulations 2018. If the complaint warranted further enforcement action, people could also face prosecution.
