Manawatu women set standard in sevens


this week

By ALECIA ROUSSEAU Claiming the national women’s sevens title two years in a row is acclamation that women can make it in this mostly male dominated sport, according to Manawatu Rugby Union chief executive John Knowles. He spoke to the Manawatu Women’s Sevens team at an event on Monday night, when those involved in the team came together to celebrate their success. Not only did the women become champions twice in a row, they were also the first team to win the Bay of Plenty provincial championship and the National event in the same year. Crystal Mayes, who plays centre, said the key to their winning streak was having trust in one another. ‘‘Trust is one of the key things you need; we all play for each other and, of course, our coach Stu Ross is also big part of our success.’’ Mr Knowles paid tribute to Dr Farah Palmer who ‘‘kicked off rugby some years ago’’. While representing Manawatu in 2006, she was hailed the main catalyst for promoting them to the national women’s championships. ‘‘Here lies a challenge for all women; sometimes it’s difficult to change the mindset of men and get them to consider women’s rugby at a club level,’’ Mr Knowles said. ‘‘I think we can change that and develop a competition

within the Manawatu.’’ Coach Stu Ross used his time on stage to explain why he believes there was more to come from his girls. ‘‘We have to strive for every dollar we get because it’s a tough world out there for women’s

rugby. My job is to keep pushing them; we don’t like being outplayed or outmuscled and we play for performance. The result takes care of itself.’’ Captain Sarah Goss said Manawatu was becoming a hub for talented players.

‘‘To have five contracted players to the New Zealand women’s team is amazing for our region. ‘‘We give up a lot of time with our families to do this and we are by far the most successful sevens team in the country.’’

Palmerston North Hospital is looking to upgrade its lights with more modern, efficient, energy-saving lights. The proposed first phase of a two-tothree-year project got the green light at the board’s hospital advisory committee this week, which recommended to the board the go-ahead. The first phase, costing $692,000, will involve the replacement of three types of aging light fittings in the Emergency Department, Clinical Services block, Women’s Health building, and the STAR/ rehabilitation blocks.

The 1, 2, 3 strikes campaign introduced by the Palmerston North City Council last August is proving a success with a 50 per cent decrease in contamination rates. The campaign is aimed at educating residents to put the right things in their recycling bin. Council rubbish and recycling asset engineer Natasha Simmons said the contamination rate had dropped from a high of 25 per cent to 12 per cent. Residents who continue to put the wrong items in recycling bins, will be advised through use of the 1, 2, 3 stickers.

Feilding victim dies

Neighbours to the block of flats where a 49-year-old woman was found critically injured last Thursday night seem unaware as to what may have happened. Police were called to the Russell Street property in Feilding just after 8.30pm and found the victim severely injured. Neighbours were told the women had been assaulted by a man, but police were unable to confirm this. The woman died on Tuesday morning and police have now launched a homicide inquiry. The women is believed to have lived in the flat with her partner, and her family from Hawkes Bay had since arrived to be at her hospital bed. Dearn Walker, who lives close to the property on Russell Street, said she heard no signs of distress and only realised something happened when a fire engine parked outside. ‘‘I had been out all day until around 2.30pm. There was a fire engine up the road earlier that night then I saw one here and thought there might have been a gas leak. We didn’t see an ambulance or hear any sirens — all of a sudden this fire engine was parked out the front and there seemed to be a lot of people hanging around.’’ Her godson and daughter had been home all day but had not

SUSPICIOUS: A side gate to the property was taped shut after the incident. (inset) mentioned hearing anything untoward, she added. ‘‘If any of us heard something indicating a woman was in trouble we would have gone out or called the police — but we heard nothing.’’ About nine police officers are working on the investigation, which has included visiting neighbours and speaking to the woman’s partner, family and friends. The Manawatu Guardian visited the adjoining flats but a

police guard asked them to leave the shared driveway. A male added that police had asked them not to speak to the media. A call was also made the landlord who said she was unaware ‘‘anything’’ had taken place. Detective sergeant Craig Sheridan of the Palmerston North police said the investigation had gathered a lot of information which was not being made public. ‘‘Our aim is to determine how the injuries were inflicted and who was responsible for them.’’

Something to replace the cravings By DALE WICKEN A nicotene replacement therapy trial is proving popular with smokers in Palmerston North. The trial, titled Enjoy, is being conducted by the University of Otago and offers smokers a range of nicotene replacement options including gum, patches, nicotene inhalator and mouthspray. While in Wellington the trial was conducted in a mall but in Palmerston North it’s an events-based scheme with stalls popping up at local shows throughout March. ‘‘The goal of our trial is to see if giving smokers the opportunity to sample a range of therapies as they go about their ordinary lives, motivates them to keep using nicotene replacement therapies for a sufficiently long period of time and, if this increases their motivation to quit or encourages them to try to quit, and if it helps them to quit for at least three months,’’ explained lead

researcher, Dr Brent Caldwell. There has been a lot of interest in trying the therapy, according to local organiser Fay Selby-Law. ‘‘We’ve already had people ringing up who’ve heard about the trial. We get them to come in so we can show them the product and how to use it safely.’’ Those who are involved are taken through a questionnaire before they’re given the product free of charge. They are then phoned a week later to discuss the results and in subsequent weeks to find out how the therapy is proceeding. ‘‘It’s not about quitting, it’s about giving these therapies a go,’’ Ms SelbyLaw said. While Katarina Hapi wasn’t a fan of the spray, she has found the other products useful. ‘‘I’ve definitely been smoking less,’’ she said. The Palmerston North branch is run by Te Wakahuia Manawatu Trust Hauora and is funded by the Ministry of Health.

Making moves to computer literacy









LEARNING SPACE: Suzanne Keogh takes Mahia Byford through a one-on-one session at Te Patikitiki Library. PICTURE: DALE WICKEN By DALE WICKEN A series of free computer help sessions is proving beneficial to local residents. The classes are run at branch libraries across the city each week and offer help with any computer functions people may need assistance with. The sessions are taken by digital services guide Suzanne Keogh, who is enthusiastic about their benefits. ‘‘If I can help people then that’s great. I learn a lot at the same time and get to meet a lot of different people. Often at branch libraries there are only one or two staff and they have to juggle other things so, with this, people can book in for one on one sessions with me.’’ At present the sessions at Te Patikitiki in Highbury and Roslyn are proving the

most popular, but Suzanne is hoping those in Awapuni and Ashhurst will pick up. One person who’s taken advantage of the free help is Mahia Byford. Having just enrolled in a UCOL computer course, he had experienced difficulty with some of the course material and came to Suzanne for help. ‘‘I was given this workbook to go through but it’s a bit hard. I’m a hands-on person, I learn by seeing and doing,’’ he said. During his session last week he was learning how to download files and save them on to a memory stick, something that he wanted to be able to do at home. The Palmerston North City Library is also offering a range of free computer classes at their city campus.

Not sure how to get a dispute resolved? Palmerston North’s Citizens Advice Bureau receives many inquiries from people who don’t know how to sort out a problem they have with a service provider, whether it’s a retailer, tradesperson, employer/employee, tenant/landlord, or utilities provider. Many people don’t know how to complain effectively, or aren’t sure if there is a specific complaints body they can go to if they aren’t able to sort things out with the other party. If agreement can’t be reached, you can apply to the appropriate complaints body. For example, for tenancy disputes you would apply to the Tenancy Tribunal. For disputes with your electricity or gas provider, contact the Electricity and Gas Complaints Commission and for complaints about real estate agents, you contact the Real Estate Agents Authority. If you are unsure as to where to direct your complaint, the website can help. Our website also has information, but you may prefer to discuss the issue with us. You can either call in to see us at Community House, 77 King Street, or phone (06) 357-0647 or 0800 367 222. You can also email

Meridian Te Āpiti Community Fund

The annual Central District Field Days came to Feilding last week and, while it was cut down to two-and-a-half days rather than the planned three, event organisers were pleased with how it went. The scorching weather on Thursday and Friday saw the crowds pack out Manfeild Park to take in all things farming, with over 540 exhibitors displaying their wares. Events such as the woodchopping, fencing competitions and the tractor pull were popular drawcards. Stall holders were positive about business, saying it was ‘steady’ on Thursday and Friday, though many were disappointed at the early closure. Fairfax agrimedia brand manager Dean Williamson said shutting the event down two hours early on Saturday was a necessary precaution due to the unpredictability of cyclone Lusi. ‘‘Sales were great on Thursday and Friday but there was a bit of shyness because of the weather on the Saturday and a decision had to be made. We did a staged shut down — we put the call out at 12.30pm and the public had left by 2pm. We had to put safety first,’’ he explained. The main prize given away at the event — a quadbike and trailer full of goodies—was won by a visitor from Thames and the third place getter was

VOLUNTEER CORNER The Volunteer Resource Centre Manawatu and Districts is holding a series of workshops in April and May for managers and co-ordinators of volunteers. Any organisation with a volunteer programme can attend including VRC members, local businesses and government departments. The first workshop, on Wednesday April 9, will be to highlight the benefits of time spent recruiting, screening and selecting the most suitable volunteers for your organisation. They are a valuable resource, so it’s important to know how to decide if they have the right skills and experience, how to interview and how to say ‘‘no thanks’’ if they aren’t right. The second workshop, on Friday May 9, will look at how to motivate and retain your volunteers. As with employees, time invested in them is well spent, and promotes volunteer longevity. We will discuss the myriad of ways to value and support your volunteers, both informally and formally. The third and final workshop will look at policies and practices for your volunteers: how to keep them and you safe. Having regularly reviewed policies in place will promote consistency and clearly defined responsibilities and boundaries, while also ensuring the volunteer understands the process if policies are breached. This will be held in July. Each workshop will be held from 9.30am — 12.30pm. Cost is from $40, to include morning tea. Attendees are invited to bring lunch and enjoy the networking opportunities available after the session. Seats are limited so please register your interest with the VRC on 354 6027 or email

Enliven in our community New Zealand’s population is ageing. Increasingly older people want to stay in their homes for longer and hundreds of Manawatu residents are now accessing Enliven Community Support in order to do so. Enliven Community Support is part of Presbyterian Support Central’s Positive Ageing Service which offers a full range of services for older people including home help and personal care, rest home and hospital-level care, dementia care, as well as retirement villages in the region. Community Support Service manager Amy Gladstone believes in-home services, like those provided by Enliven Community Support, are becoming popular as people want to stay in their home for longer. She explains that through Community Support, support workers are available to go into people’s homes to provide help with anything from showering, medication and physiotherapy to food shopping, meal preparation and cleaning. ‘‘We are really able to tailor the service depending on the person’s needs.’’ Some Enliven Community Support services are subsidised by MidCentral District Health Board but Amy says if

people don’t qualify for the subsidy, they can still pay for any of Enliven’s services themselves on an hourly rate. ‘‘We can simply explore what the person needs and make a plan that works for them and their family. Sometimes it’s an hour a week, other times we visit on a daily basis. All they need to do is give us a call and let us know how we can help.’’ Amy explains it’s sometimes family members who make the first contact with Enliven Community Support. ‘‘It can be really difficult for adult children who are working full time, looking after children or live out of town, to be able to provide the support their parents need. ‘‘But if our support workers are taking care of their parent’s personal care, cleaning and medication, they can actually enjoy the time they are able to spend with them,’’ says Amy. ‘‘For many people we really do become an integral part of their lives because we’re can support them to maintain their independence.’’ ■ To find out more about Enliven Community Support or any other Enliven service, you can call the team on 0800 ENLIVEN (36 54 83).

Q: What do you think is unique about your business? A: I had the best training possible that has made me into the groomer I am. My parlour is situated in a beautiful enclosed garden where dogs can play after their groom (with the owner’s permission) these dogs are loved and cared for as though they were my own. I build a relationship with the owners of trust and so many have become friends so this is not just about grooming but building relationships and realising that you are looking after a member of their family. That is so important in this industry. Q: What do you enjoy most about your job? A: I enjoy seeing the dogs upon completion as they come in looking terrible, long matted and smelly and go out looking fabulous. It gives me lots of pleasure seeing the look on the owners faces as they see their little darlings looking way beyond their expectations and that makes me very proud. Q: Why should people come to you first? A: I have been trained by the best in this business, a Master Groomer Angela Anderson in Auckland and after months of training and certified I have the skills to groom all types of dogs from pedigrees to designer dogs and even the dogs with all sorts of genetic make ups. I cover the whole process that’s involved in grooming a dog. Q: What’s your speciality within your business? A: My creativity is my speciality it only enhances my training skills as it requires me to look at a dog especially a designer dog and see the end product by looking at the dogs size and genetic makeup and design a style that will make them look fabulous. Q: What advice could you give about your product or service that would benefit the consumer? A: Grooming is not a six weekly process, its ongoing, so whenever a dog comes to me for the first time, I make sure that the owner is educated in their responsibility on care and grooming in-between grooms and a lot of owners are unaware that they too have to brush and maintain their dogs to prevent the coat from deteriorating.

Hit musical takes stage at Feilding High School characters and typical New Zealand humour. It follows the story of high school boy, David, who stops playing rugby after he was involved in an accident that killed his friend. Facing inner turmoil, David

One of the most successful and entertaining musicals is about to take center stage at Feilding High School. This true Kiwi show was written by Auckland-based teacher Hamish Arthur and is jampacked with well-known songs,

returns to his family after a year but, instead of hitting the field again, he takes up a position in the school choir. ‘‘This main character has a tortured past but it’s a feel-good musical about how he copes and the choices you make in







life,’’ explained director Kelly Harris. ‘‘It’s a battle between his heart and what others want for him.’’ Themes center on coming of age and taking opportunities as they present. The cast’s slogan ‘don’t wait another day’ is tribute to this and promotes the idea that David can escape from his past. More than 60 students and staff are involved in this two-hour production. Months of planning and creating stage sets, costumes and props have been set in place and dozens of students have sacrificed their personal time. Stage manager Maree Gibson said this year’s show was also about giving students the chance to be leaders. ‘‘We as teachers are providing more of a mentor role; these children are taking ownership and working hard to ensure it’s going to be a fantastic show.’’ ■ The show will kick off on April 2 and runs until April 5. Tickets will be available from the School office or by emailing — $15 Adult $10 Child/Student (with ID) — $45 family (2 Adult/2student) If you are wanting to purchase dinner and dessert before the show on either Wednesday or Thursday nights, this will cost $35/$30. Businesses will get the opportunity to see a preview of the show on Tuesday 1 April prior the general public shows commencing Wednesday 2 April. To book tickets to the business night email:

Orienteering skills put to the test Massey Childcare are holding their third annual Urban Rogaine event this Saturday, and are inviting you to come along. Rogaine involves navigation, strategy and teamwork, with each team getting a map five minutes before the start, which is then used to locate different checkpoints. Employee Caryn Deans said the idea was to find as many checkpoints as possible. ‘‘The further away the check points, the more points they are worth so you must create a strategy. Do you head to the edges and get the big points or collect the close to home points?’’ The course is familyfriendly and set around Massey University’s campus. ‘‘We have lots of families enter with children of all ages who run or are in prams, slings, front packs, back packs etc. We have heaps of spot prizes to give away and all the money made gets reinvested in our community based child care centre.’’


So, if you’re wanting a fun morning out with the kids, a bit of competition with team mates or colleagues, this is the event for you. Also, feel free to come along dressed up — many others will too.

■ For more information, check out the Facebook page urbanrogaine.fundraiser, or to register contact the centre on (06) 350-5559 or email

SERVICES DIRECTORY Thinking of renovating? Think Smith & Sons Smith & Sons Manawatu can take your renovation from concept to creation. With a dedicated team of builders, they consistently deliver quality work within required timeframes and strict safety standards. Smith & Sons Manawatu pride themselves on professionalism with a personal touch. Their team of builders has extensive experie n c e c o v e r in g r e s i d en t i a l renovations and extensions, character homes and light commercial contracts. And they’re communityfocused too. They’ve recently jumped on board with the upgrade of the Palmerston North SPCA building, offering their services and assisting the SPCA to create a fantastic upgraded facility for lost and unloved animals. They urge other local businesses for donations or materials to also support this great cause. Smith and Sons Manawatu are locally owned and operated but have the support and stability of a national brand. M a n a gi n g d i r e c to r P a a l Iversen upholds three principals when it comes to running the business — quality construction, respect and integrity. ‘‘Due to the nature of home renovating, it’s critical that all our carpenters and subcontractors are courteous, polite and completely respectful of our clients’ home and personal space.’’ Paal has been in the construction industry for over 10 years, so knows a thing or two about building. ‘‘We have a ‘concept to creation’ process for your renovations and extensions.

SERVICES DIRECTORY Let Guardian Tree Services care for your trees We at Guardian Tree Services have been involved with identifying and submitting trees to the New Zealand tree register and more recently identifying potential trees to be considered for protection within the Manawatu district. This is a fantastic thing as it assures that our future generations will be able to enjoy the beauty of the trees which were fortunate enough to have been selected. Without protection, trees can be unnecessarily damaged and destroyed through careless development and mismanagement. You, the property owner, have the responsible position of guardianship to many trees of special interest. It is a great responsibility. Only with your guardianship will their legacy continue for future generations. This is your gift to our future. We all agree that trees require specialised care. Guardian Tree Services are the team to identify the best approach of preparing

and assisting the tree to its full potential.We have some of the most qualified staff within the central region. We offer assurance that you will receive the best advice and appropriate planning schedule to bring your tree up

to its full potential. While we all find the task of cleaning up autumn leaves a little tedious at times, it truly is a small chore when considering the great benefit we share by living in the presence of such majestic

living organisms. Call Guardian Tree Services on 06 354-6990 in you require specialist tree care. It would be our pleasure to assist in the care and guardianship of your treasured assets.

Aimed at the city’s multicultural groups, migrants and refugee families, it’s a wonderful opportunity to meet people, network and share experiences of resettlement in a new country, although New Zealand residents are most welcome. Shantona Poduval, coordinator at the Manawatu Multicultural Centre (MMC), recognised a need for cultural groups to be able to connect socially in a relaxed setting to
