Right Tyres. Right Choice.

Road users change seats

GDN130314cyclists

VULNERABILITY: Intersection safety for road users was a high priority for Tuesday’s exercise in The Square.

Bus drivers and cyclists offered new perspectives By ALECIA ROUSSEAU Palmerston North has five intersections among the top 100 posing the highest risk to road users according to statistics. An exercised focused on sharing the road held by Horizons Regional Council, Police and New Zealand Transport Agency, saw bus drivers and cyclists swap seats for two hours offering them the chance to view the road from another perspective. HRC road safety co-ordinator Desley Monks said people needed to be aware that despite who was to blame, accidents were something we all wanted to avoid. ‘‘We’re asking people; if you hit or kill someone and it’s their fault, do you feel good about it? No, you don’t.’’

The workshops which have been successfully trialled in Auckland and Wellington, received a great response and allowed bus drivers to cycle one and half laps of The Square while being tailed by two city buses. The first round saw one cyclist have a near miss with a car while two other vehicles almost ‘‘ran up the side of the bus’’. Transit operations manager Luke Aschebrock said the event gave people a chance to see what issues faced those at both ends of the spectrum. ‘‘Sometimes you’ve got to think about the weight ratio between a bus and cyclist; you know who’s going to be worse off.’’ After driving for more than eight years, Mr Aschebrock says

he’s thankful he hasn’t been involved in a serious collision with a bike. ‘‘It’s come very close many times; a cyclist can be following

directly behind the bus and we can’t see them at all, then all of a sudden they appear and try to come down the left or right side. Bus drivers are constantly on the lookout and we only have these side and front mirrors to do so.’’ The company had trialled proximity sensors but these were too unreliable, he added. ‘‘They go off at things like lights and they were not effective. We have driving appraisals which ensure all our drivers are aware of the risks associated with cyclists.’’ Brian Way, who uses cycling as his preferred mode of transport, says Palmerston North was a great place to ride and there were little issues he saw between his counterparts and other motorists.

RALLYING FOR SUPPORT: Tertiary Education Union branch president Tina Smith (left) led staff in strike action last week. PICTURE: DALE WICKEN

UCOL strike polarises staff By DALE WICKEN While UCOL staff went on strike last week, a number of staff Tertiary Education Union members continued regular teaching. UCOL and the union have been engaged in pay negotiations for a number of weeks but have yet to come to an agreement. The polytech presented an offer to staff last week that included two additional days of paid leave a year, plus salary increases of up to 2 per cent depending on whether extra Government funding was given. The offer was declined. ‘‘They’ve offered us ‘maybe

money,’ they need to change that to real money so we have some assurance,’’ said TEU branch president Tina Smith. But not all staff were supportive of strike action. One staff member the Guardian spoke to was unconvinced that strike action was necessary. The staff member, who wished to remain anonymous, said that with current unemployment rates, staff should be grateful that they have a job. ‘‘Another way to look at it is that there’s so much unemployment in the local community, I have a job with security and am thankful for that. UCOL is a very supportive

workplace — I get lots of extra leave and they’re committed to my professional development.’’ The staff member also believed that it was unprofessional and counter-productive that the initial protest on January 30 was staged while student recruitment was taking place. UCOL nursing student Janey Bishop was supportive of the staff striking for a pay increase. ‘‘I do support them, yes. I’ve received so much support from staff so I believe they should receive some of our support too.’’ The union will meet with TEU members over the next few weeks to discuss how to proceed.

The positives of parenting GDN130314plunket

COMMUNITY EFFORT (left to right): Guardian reporter Alecia Rousseau, Plunket’s Kylie Gibbard, Shona Lingham (Guardian manager) and Penny Dempsey (sales rep) hit the streets on Friday to help with their annual street appeal. Mrs Gibbard said the donations would go towards supporting young families in need.

MANFEILD MATTERS By HEATHER VERRY Manfeild chief executive No event at Manfeild has grown as much as the annual extravaganza opening today; as hard as it is to believe now, when the Central Districts’ Field Days kicked off in 1983 it was a small undertaking with perhaps 50 sites in the middle of a paddock. Look at it now. The greater part of the Manfeild circuit is overwhelmed by one of the most popular agricultural, horticultural and rural life off-farm activities within the Central North Island. ‘‘The best day off the farm’’ requires a fulltime event manager, Cheryl Riddell (this is her 18th year) who dedicates 11 months’ work turning our park into a mini town for a week. As soon as the marquees start to come down this Sunday, Cheryl and her team including a supportive core of volunteers, some of whom have helped out right from the very first field days — will be looking toward the 2015 event. Manfeild has worked with Field Days to develop the infrastructure to support this excellent outing. The venue has a permanent maze of power cables, lights and water pipes that the event now simply taps into for each year. The accuracy of establishing the site layout has stepped up to modern technology; no using tape measures and rule of thumb now. The entire layout is determined by laser measuring devices. A great aspect about the CD Field Days is that it allows us to expose Manfeild to a huge count of visitors from beyond the immediate region. It’s a day trip for 40,000 farms and small blocks from Wairarapa, Hawke’s Bay, Taranaki, Wellington and Taupo. There is anecdotal evidence that many people whose first experience of Manfeild through field days subsequently return for other events, whether they are agricultural or of a sporting nature, from equestrian to motorsport. The continued growth of this event continues to bring economic benefit to the region and its longevity is impressive. We’d like to think that the New Zealand Grand Prix at Manfeild is also fitting within that context. We were delighted to win host

rights until 2017, our third consecutive term. Our success is an endorsement of the circuit and venue and the work that has been done since Manfeild Park Trust took over to make Manfeild into a truly national

facility. However, the key ingredient to keeping the GP here has to surely be the massive level of regional goodwill; those who speak against keeping the race here are very few indeed. Our impetus to makes this occasion more of a regional celebration was highlighted this year with the addition of the Manawatu Fireworks Spectacular. The large crowd has reinforced our intention to make this a permanent attraction for the NZGP. We were honoured that the United Fire Brigades’ Association chose Manfeild Stadium as the venue for their national road crash rescue challenge, involving 15 fire rescue crews from around the country. During the four days they were here the crews worked through the bulk of the 100 vehicles that were brought on site for replication of various, increasingly tricky crash scenarios. Against the clock, it made for compelling viewing, but we of course should all recall the extrication and treatment of patients in these scenarios has a serious side everyone should think about. All of this is designed to replicate road crash incidents and exposed the reality of a job that requires bravery, skill and dedication from our communities’ often unsung heroes. Winning is a bonus but the real focus is learning and refining their skills so that when they return home, they are better equipped to respond to the unpredictable range of road crash scenarios they see in real life. ■ Check out the Manfeild website for more events at www.manfeild.co.nz, or visit our Facebook page.

The Ministry of Health pilot project, Primary Care Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme), is now in its third year. The project has seen 85 practitioners in the Manawatu trained to deliver one to one and discussion group interventions to families who want support with everyday general parenting issues — from dealing with disobedience to developing bedtime routines and every parenting issue in between. The programme has now reached over 300 people. This is as a result of great practitioners out in our community delivering the programme, from Dannevirke to Pahiatua and Levin to Otaki, not

a corner of the region has been left out. We have also had the opportunity to highlight a number of our skilled practitioners and whanau who have undertaken the programme in the Triple P Tip Papers. This continues to highlight the good work that is being done in the area by the Triple P practitioners, but more importantly, an opportunity for other whanau in the region to see the great results families in the Manawatu who have used the programme have been getting. ■ To find out more about Triple P in Palmerston North call Nikki at ACROSS on (06) 356-7486 or go to www.triplepstaypositive.net.

Relay for life hits record numbers By ALECIA ROUSSEAU Manawatu’s Cancer Society has raised more than $350,000 in this year’s Relay for Life. The event, held last weekend at Massey’s Hokowhitu Campus, enticed thousands of supporters to the 24 hour relay. Cancer Society Manawatu Centre fundraiser Faye James said the event had exceeded all expectations with 116 teams competing. ‘‘This year really was amazing; the survivors walk saw more than 400 people — more than we’ve ever had. It’s a fantastic event bringing together all ages, all levels and all races.’’ Mrs James said teams were often keen

to keep their support up with the relay seeing an 80 per cent return rate each year. ‘‘Most teams are keen to do it again. There’s just something about Relay for Life our community really loves.’’ The money will help the Cancer Society provide on the ground support services for those going through cancer treatment. ‘‘We help those who are on the cancer journey; whether it be taking them to an appointment or offering them tai chi.’’ Last year, volunteer drivers drove over 100,000 km taking patients to and from appointments, Mrs James added. ■ All services offered by the Cancer Society are free and confidential. If you would like to seek help with any of their services, please phone (06) 356 4011.

to build strong communities.

More than 4000 children will be able to receive the polio vaccine thanks to a fundraiser by the Terrace End Rotary Club. At Wharerata next Wednesday night, dozens of people will join in ‘‘the greatest meal to end polio now’’ in a bid to help eradicate the last 1 per cent of this disease. Project co-ordinator Bob Stewart said the nationwide event helped unite Rotarians over a common cause. ‘‘For every dollar raised, two dollars will be contributed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. I will also stump up a 20 per cent subsidy on the total we make.’’ Their goal is set at $1000 which will cover vaccines in places like Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria, where each dose costs around 70 cents New Zealand. ‘‘We believe this illustrates how this

relatively modest sum can in fact make a substantial difference to the lives of many children,’’ Mr Stewart said. Rotary has been responsible for heading a global reduction in polio cases by 99 per cent since their first vaccination project in 1979 in the Philippines. By the time polio is completely abolished, they have estimated a total spend of $US1.2 million. Polio is a viral illness that affects people in three ways; the first is a mild form called abortive polio which tends to show no symptoms. The second form is called nonparalytic polio and symptoms include mild respiratory infections, diarrhoea, sore throats and a general feeling of being unwell. Paralytic polio is the final more serious form causing muscle paralysis and even death. The first epidemic was recorded in 1952, with around 60,000 cases reported.

The Volunteer Resource Centre is holding a series of workshops in March and April for managers and co-ordinators of volunteer groups. The first workshop, Thursday March 20, will be held in Community house on King

This spoof on 1920s-1930s’ gambling and prohibition will woo the audience with its snazzy jazz, soft shoe shuffle and Bronx wannabe gangsters. On at the Speirs Centre over a number of days starting on Thursday, March 13. ■ Come and be a part of the excitement at the Ironman Bullriding Championships at Manfeild. Real cowboys fighting it out against real bulls — bullriding starts 6pm with gates open at 4.30pm. ■ Come and make a lantern to be part of the Festival of Cultures Parade on March 21.

Accompanying the two is the newly appointed New Zealand war artist, squeamish Captain George Butler, who is unsure what business an artist has being in the middle of a battlefield. The War Artist is a funny, bittersweet and moving tribute to the New Zealand Army’s first official war artist, George Edmund Butler. Season opening this Saturday at Centrepoint Theatre. ■ The Black Seeds, recently referred to by Rolling Stone Magazine as ‘‘the best reggae band in the world right now’’ are joined by our own Benny Tipene and his band in The Square this Sunday.

BRINGING OUT THE ART OF WAR By DALE WICKEN With 2014 being the 100 year anniversary for the outbreak of World War I, it’s fitting that the first Centrepoint Theatre production has a war theme. Carl Nixon’s The War Artist tells the story of official New Zealand Army war artist George Edmund Butler. The three-man show features

Tom Trevella as Butler, alongside Owen Black and Simon Leary as the two soldiers he accompanies on burial detail. Squeamish Butler is unsure what business an artist has being in the middle of the battlefield and goes along to take sketches as things develop. Palmerston North is the first city to get the play, which Trevella thinks will be particularly salient to the New Zealand audience because of

our shared history of conflict. Director Steven Ray chose the cast for the certain qualities they possessed and they’re currently rehearsing on set in preparation for the March 15 opening. The 80 minute show is set in the latter part of 1918 in France. To book your ticket, call Centrepoint Theatre on (06) 354 5740 for prices and session times or visit www.centrepoint.co.nz.

Rubbish removers make life that little bit easier Do you have rubbish that’s cluttering up your section? Sick of that pile of junk in the backyard? Rubbish and Junk Removers can come to your service! They were set up for that exact purpose — to help those who don’t have the transport, time or capabilities to have their rubbish and junk removed. Rather than sorting out an expensive skip bin, get John and his team to come to your aid. They pick up any materials and take them away, giving you free space for whatever else you want to do. Simply ring 0800586 548

(0800 JUNKIT) and John will pay you a visit to give you a quote. If you like the quote, they’ll do the job. It’s as easy as that. Rubbish and Junk Removers are in the throes of working with the council regarding recycling. They’ve talked to local organisations about giving good items to the less fortunate, so you can be assured that anything of use won’t be wasted. Recycling is a main priority of the business and the only thing they don’t pick up are hazardous goods. So if you want to get rid of any unwanted junk, don’t hesitate to give John a call on 0800 JUNKIT.
