Right Tyres. Right Choice.

Housing is an issue, says support agency By ALECIA ROUSSEAU A Palmerston North housing advocate says demand for social housing exists within the city despite several agencies saying it doesn’t. Manawatu Housing Advice Centre manager Sue Swinborne is continuing to refer a number of clients, who say they have nowhere else to go, to Work and Income for a housing needs assessment. The clients are often on low or no incomes and generally have one adult and up to two children. “Their priority is for a two bedroom, small, insulated easy to heat home without too much ground to maintain and at an affordable rent. In Palmerston North it’s my understanding that only around 20 per cent of housing stock has one or two bedrooms.” Families are often split up due to the lack of room and we are finding solo dads have nowhere to live, she added. Statistics from September 2007 state the community housing sector in New Zealand has approximately 160 non-Government, not-forprofit owned organisations. This sector owns and operates up to 6713 units and despite emphasis on growing this industry, a lack of funding has seen providers struggle. “At this time of year emergency and short-term accom-

NEEDED OR NOT? Offers of social housing are not going unanswered. modation can be full,” Mrs Swinborne said. “Many of our clients would prefer rent from a private landlord due to the extra costs associated with a property manager.” The average market rent for a two-bedroom home in Palmerston North is between $230 and $250 a week while

bond for a home can cost up to $1800. “. . . And then you have the cost of shifting and organisation of utilities which can also require a bond initially.” PNCC has 311 council flats for those living on an invalids benefit or superannuation. Their website states rental rates can prove too expensive for those on fixed incomes.


“Many of our clients struggle to pay their rent, often because their income does not stretch far enough,” Mrs Swinborne explained. “These people are not only on benefits — they can be seasonal workers, casual workers with irregular hours or they may be on minimum wage.”

Meatworks admits unlawful discharge By ALECIA ROUSSEAU A Feilding meat processor has been convicted of unlawfully discharging waste and ordered to pay more than $68,000. Affco Holdings Limited appeared before Judge Brian Dwyer in the Palmerston North Environment Court last week. The meat giant pled guilty to discharging 488,000 litres of waste water into a river over a two-day period. At approximately 3pm on December 11 2012 waste water began flowing from the plant into the Oroua River. This went unnoticed until 6am the following day when an Affco employee attempted to divert the flow with sandbags. This was an “ineffective” method and after further attempts, it finally ceased at 4pm. An arrangement with the neighbouring farm that would see them switch on an irrigation system had been relied on. But on this occasion, farm workers were unable to get the pump working and failed to let plant employees know. Judge Dwyer criticised this reliance on a “third party” and said, although the offending may not have been reckless, the careless nature made it serious. At the time of the offending, river levels were


VULNERABLE: The Oroua River runs adjacent to Affco’s meat processing plant. PHOTO: SUPPLIED “massively” below what was required in their resource consent. “Affco has not got a good record at this plant,” he said. “The Manawatu River Leaders Accord has set out an action plan to rehabilitate our river . . . Affco is a signatory of this so is well aware of the Oroua and Manawatu River’s vulnerable nature.” He claimed it was difficult to ascertain the level of damage caused by this offending but sampling of the water had confirmed high amounts of contaminants. “We know that point source river discharges contribute to the unsatisfactory state of the river.” Affco’s lawyer Mark Hammond said the company accepted responsibility and had spent $270,000 on improvements.

“We now have a Programmable Logic Controller which is a computerised activation . . . it automatically lets the company know if the river flow is beyond that of consent. There will be a total of $750,000 spent on systematic improvements.” Horizons Regional Council welcomed Affco’s guilty plea. Group manager strategy and regulation Dr Nic Peet said Affco has had problems in the past but is making significant improvements. “Horizons also welcomes the $20,000 contribution Affco has voluntarily made into the MRLA. Affco has been an important and active leader in the Accord and as a key local employer, is contributing to the economic and environmental health of the area.”

Unique service for cancer patients By DALE WICKEN


MISERY: Gambling is a problem in Palmerston North and is being used to exploit the elderly. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Financial exploitation a growing problem By DALE WICKEN More than $4 million was spent through pokie machines in Palmerston North and Danniverke in just three months last year, and local credit union NZCU Baywide is concerned that some of this may be a result of exploiting the elderly. National Age Concern figures show reports of financial elder abuse almost doubled from 1100 in the 2010 to 2011 financial year to about 2000 between 2012 and 2013. Seventy five per cent of reported elder abuse is caused by family members. NZCU Baywide is calling for families and friends to safeguard older people to ensure their

funds stay in their accounts and don’t end up down pokie machine slots. “We all need to become more vigilant and investigate unusual behaviour such as a young person accompanying their older relative to the bank to withdraw large sums of money, or withdrawing money on a regular basis from an account they have access to. We owe it to our older people,” NZCU Baywide chief executive Gavin Earle said. Robyn Booker of Age Concern Manawatu said gambling was a huge problem for our local community. “I have had clients themselves who have had issues with gambling and financial

management because of this. Children and grandchildren with gaming, alcohol and drug addictions who have financially abused older adults.” Research from United Nations has shown that elder abuse, neglect, violence and exploitation are some of the biggest issues facing senior citizens around the world. World Health Organisation data suggests that four to six per cent of elderly suffer from some sort of abuse, a large percentage of which goes unreported. ■ If you are concerned about money or gambling, visit or phone 0800 654 655.

A cancer psychology service aims to offer help to the estimated 30 per cent of cancer sufferers who don’t cope with the high levels of distress associated with the disease. Massey University’s Cancer Psychology Service: Te Ara Whatumanawa offers free help to those affected, including family members who are struggling to deal with distress after a loved one’s diagnosis.

Lack of funding a worry By DALE WICKEN A lack of Government funding is having negative consequences on local women in need of protection from domestic or sexual violence, according to Green MP Jan Logie and staff at Palmerston North Women’s Refuge. Despite an increased need, the Palmerston North Women’s Refuge had to close its second safe house and now operates just one, which is so full they often have to turn people away. They recently lost three staff members meaning current staff are working voluntary hours to meet demand. Staff are also having to use their own vehicles. On a visit last week, Ms Logie said she ‘didn’t think it would be this bad’ when Danielle Berry of Women’s Refuge spoke of the local situation. “There’s been an increase in the demand for refuge’s services but no increase in funding. Our children’s programme had to be put on hold and we’re continually turning women away now there’s only one safe house,” she explained. Ms Logie spoke of the funding situation on a national level which is reflected in the struggles at various refuges around the country. “The funding model has to change so staff aren’t worrying about


SPREADING THE MESSAGE: Green MP Jan Logie is passionate about the need for funding domestic and sexual services. PHOTO: DALE WICKEN keeping the car on the road or paying wages,” she said. “These are services that are about protecting our women and children and, ultimately, saving lives.” In the past five years, Women’s Refuge funding

has decreased from $9.5 million to $6.5m and is being felt nationwide, said Ms Logie. She called the prevalence of domestic and sexual violence in New Zealand a silent epidemic.

STATISTICS ■ One in four girls in New Zealand experience sexual violence. ■ Sexual violence is the issue in 7 per cent of police callouts. ■ One in three women in New Zealand have experienced a violent relationship at some point of their lives. ■ There are 30 domestic violence related deaths per year in New Zealand. ■ Police are called to an instance of domestic violence every seven minutes. ■ Domestic/sexual violence costs between $5m and $8m to the New Zealand economy.

Farming stress a real issue for rural people By DALE WICKEN Farming communities are being urged to support each other and combat rising stress levels which are a contributing factor to the higher suicide rate among rural communities. Ministry of Health figures between 2008 and 2011 indicate a suicide rate of 16 people per every 100,000, while the urban population was 11.2 per

100,000. According to the MidCentral District Health Board, today’s farmers face several issues keeping their stress levels up. “As we know, it’s this long-term stress that impacts on our mental wellbeing and if not managed can lead to mild to severe depression,” MDHB mental health promoter Pauline Brown said. These include unpredictability, financial

pressures, maintaining a healthy balance between home and work life, compliance issues and livestock health. “The stigma around the word depression for men has been predominantly addressed by John Kirwan’s campaign which has had a huge influence on getting people to speak up, but for farmers, the message is not getting through,” Hawke’s Bay

Federated Farmer David Hunt said. “We can be a bit macho when it comes to admitting we need help, visiting the doctor and taking medication to fix our problems is not an easy sell.” A MDHB signboard states farming communities need to realise their strength in supporting each other by engaging in community activities and get-togethers.

SIGNS OF TOO MUCH STRESS ■ Anxious and tense for no apparent reason. ■ Drinking more alcohol than usual. ■ Feeling impatient and irritable. ■ Loss of concentration. ■ Loss of confidence. ■ Difficulty doing what used to be easy. ■ Not sleeping. If you’re experiencing increased stress levels or know someone who is, call the confidential depression helpline on 0800 111 757.

Ring your general practice (GP) team. This team knows you and your family best, and can work out who is best to help you with any current or ongoing health issues. Go to an accident and medical (A&M) centre – a one-stop shop for urgent care and they have x-ray facilities. • City Doctors, A&M centre at 22 Victoria Avenue, Palmerston North. City Doctors is open 8am to 10pm seven days a week, including public holidays. Phone (06) 355 3300. • Radius Medical, The Palms, A&M centre at 445 Ferguson Street, Palmerston North.

Go to the Emergency Department (ED) – the regional trauma and emergency centre at Palmerston North Hospital. Unlike your GP team, ED does not have appointment times. Patients are taken on a most-serious-basis first. If your illness/condition is not considered life threatening or serious, then you may experience a longer wait to be seen. When you arrive at ED, a triage nurse will assess your illness or injury and prioritise your condition to ensure that you receive the right care at the right time. In some cases, the nurse may suggest that you see your GP/family doctor if you do not require emergency treatment.

• If you don’t have



a GP or need more immediate help, visit City Doctors or The Palms, or call the free Healthline service 0800 611 116. • In an Acute Mental Health Emergency 0800 653 357.

Prevention is better than cure – keep on top of your health issues to prevent the need for urgent care. Don’t let those prescriptions lapse. Don’t leave things too late. Book that appointment with your general practice team. They have a range of health professionals to help you. Not enrolled with a GP? Contact Central PHO (Primary Health Organisation) on 0800 55 56 57. Do it now, don’t wait until you or family are acutely ill.

Value of volunteering: Immense and irreplaceable National Volunteer Week focuses on the people who keep New Zealand’s communities humming — volunteers. This year’s theme is “With your contribution and my contribution the people will live”. Now in its 10th year, the Trustpower Community Awards celebrate the invaluable contribution of local voluntary groups and community organisations and the search is on to unearth Palmerston North’s hard-working voluntary groups. These awards are a great opportunity to recognise these do-gooders and entries are currently open. Run in partnership with the Palmerston North City Council, the Community Awards acknowledge voluntary groups across five different categories; Heri-

tage and Environment, Health and Well Being, Sports and Leisure, Arts and Culture and Education and Child/Youth Development. The supreme winner of the Trustpower Palmerston North Community Awards will represent the region at the Trustpower National Community Awards in Wellington next March. Last year’s supreme winner for the Community Awards was the Te Aroha Noa Community Services Trust. T r u s t po w e r c o m mu n i t y relations representative Jess Somerville says volunteers are a formidable force of good in the community. “Palmerston North is home to hundreds of community groups

providing services, activities, support and events in the community and often they are not recognised for the invaluable work they do. These Awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise and honour some of the regions hardworking and generous volunteers and it means we get the chance to share with the community all the wonderful things they do.” ■ Entries for the 2014 Trustpower Palmerston North Community Awards close on August 1. Entry forms are available at any council office or service centre, online at communityawards or by calling Trustpower Community Relations on 0800 87 11 11.

Goodwill a mainstay in local community One person who knows the importance of volunteers is Lyal Brenton, the manager of Methodist Goodwill Palmerston North. The organisation started in 1969 and now has two stores in Highbury and Terrace End, as well as a busy workshop on Main Street. With only five paid staff, the volunteers are the backbone of the organisation. From sorting, cleaning and repairing clothes to pickups and manning the stores, those who volunteer their time for Goodwill are relied on to keep the business ticking. “For a lot of people it’s a chance to mix with other people and they get a great sense of self worth,” Mr Brenton says. “Many people wouldn’t know what to do with themselves otherwise — either they’re out of work for some reason or they’re retired or just want to do some volunteering.” They have up to 100 volunteers on call including a steady stream of people who need to do some community service work. Volunteers range in age from 15 to 80 and help out as and when they can.

The purpose of Goodwill is to raise funds to support the work done at Methodist social services — such as the foodbank and counselling services. A major fundraiser held once a year is the ‘Yesterday’s Treasures’ sale that brings in around $25,000 which is then put straight back into the local community. Goodwill does all it can to help with disaster relief efforts too whenever they’re needed. Volunteers are always welcome and provide knowledge and skills that benefit the organisation and community they serve.

STAR PUPIL OF THE MONTH Our Star Student for May is Kriti Saija, who is in year 9, and attends our centre for maths and English. She is an excellent student, because she asks questions, has a genuinely inquiring mind, and uses all opportunities to learn. This is what she says:

“When I was given the privilege to attend Kip McGrath… I knew that my learning was going to be a great experience. As soon as I had been to the first lesson at Kip McGrath I became more confident. If I didn’t understand anything or needed extension, I could ask and get help from Minke and Susan, who have worked to their best abilities. Education is the most important part of life, and it should be delivered with ENTHUSIASM and PASSION. Kip McGrath has given me many opportunities to extend and develop my knowledge to be the best I can be!”

Our experience with Te Manawa It was a full-on weekend at Te Manawa! On Friday, we said a sad farewell to Manu Kawana, Kaihautu, who had been at Te Manawa for 17 years. TM was closed at 3.30pm to make way for 180-odd people who wanted to express their thanks and share memories. There was food, singing and plenty of tears. We attended a seminar by Sir Professor Mason Durie run in collaboration with the Palmy Youth Network. A great day was had by all of us; it was a real treat listening to such an inspirational leader like Sir Mason. We’d had our tickets for a while now and really were looking forward to Michael Houstoun’s performance on the red piano. He didn’t disappoint. We had a lovely evening and enjoyed mingling with Michael after the concert. While we were at the Art Gallery, we noticed that Black River was open upstairs so we went up to find a fairly bare space but with a big table that had typewriters, paper and pencils at the ready. We soon saw we were being asked to create so we immediately sat down and tapped at the typewriter and did some drawing. We felt so inspired by what we saw, we thought we would go home and carry on with some creative work to bring back in. There is a Black River Facebook page that we ‘liked’ also so we could keep up with what other people were doing creatively too.


CHECK IT OUT: The Black River exhibition space at Te Manawa. We were sad to learn it’s the last week for the red piano to be at the Art Gallery. The exhibition Black Rainbow closes on Sunday. We had another little play and we really do encourage you to come and see the piano if you haven’t already, and if you have, go and see it again! What a marvellous instrument and art piece all in one. We had a go at a ‘Mirror Magic Selfie’, in the Mirror Magic exhibition ($2 per

Vanuella Watt to headline French concert Exotic singer, Vanuella Watt is visiting Palmerston North for a free concert celebrating French music day. Although she has been touring the Pacific Islands over the past few years, she will be performing for her first time in New Zealand. The young Caledonian singer, referred to as ‘the Pacific Diva’, boasts an extensive range of timbres and tones, and fascinates her audience with her warm and natural personality. Born in Villeneuve-sur-Lot France, daughter of a Melanesian father, the famous sculptor- Emmanuel Watt and a French Italian mother, pianist Lucie Me´nini, Vanuella was immersed from her earliest days in an artistic environment. The singer started performing at the age of 10 and her talent continued to grow throughout the years. She travelled across the Pacific, going as far as California, and spent several years in France where she recorded her first album Revoir mes ıˆles. She embodies the image of the diversity of New Caledonian music through her repertoire built on both modern and more traditional takes on the “chanson franc¸aise”. ■ This concert will be held at the Palmerston North City Library, Sound and Vision Zone, for the Fete de la Musique tomorrow night at 8pm. Admission is free.

Grey Power committed to elder welfare Grey Power is an organisation owned and run for New Zealanders. It doesn’t receive Government funding and is therefore politically independent, and is a strong advocacy group bringing matters concerning older New Zealanders, to the attention of Parliament. Fourteen per cent of our population is over the age of 65 years, a considerable lobby group when united in concerns affecting themselves — and their families. Grey Power Manawatu has over 1000 members. Associations are grouped into Zones, the representatives of which attend Federation Meetings in Auckland. Any citizen over the age of 50 years is eligible to join Grey Power. The office is staffed entirely by volunteers. Members are encouraged to consult about matters of concern, Grey Power investigating and interceding when necessary. Funding for Age Concern is now minimised by Government, making Grey Power the only organisation entirely committed to the welfare of older New Zealanders in the Manawatu. The Annual subscription to Grey Power Manawatu is $25.00 per household or $18 per person

The local Committee is composed mainly of retirees. Some are working, all have strengths in numerous fields. The Association members meet monthly, listen to speakers on a variety of subjects of interest and importance, and have afternoon tea. We provide a discount book, and a quarterly 12 page newsletter updates changes in legislation or other matters.

A long fought-for subsidy in electric power has come to fruition. An amalgamation with Pulse Electricity, is now Grey Power Electricity, and is able to offer competitive prices. This covers gas also. These cheaper prices are guaranteed for at least five years. Lowering the cost of heating in winter is of great benefit for many of our members, and in addition, has sparked more competition amongst suppliers.

Gorge to receive bike track By DALE WICKEN The recently developed Te Apiti Gorge project is in store for another development — a mountain bike track. An official blessing by Rangitane O Tamaki Nui a Rua kaumatua Manahi Paewai took place last week to mark the beginning of construction. The track will be suitable for use by intermediate level riders and also those on foot. The track will be located at the eastern end of the Gorge and will travel through forest from Hall Block Roa, reappearing near the Bridge Cafe. Mountain biker Bill Russell of the Manawatu Mountain Bike Club said he’s excited about the track’s possibilities. “There is massive potential for mountain biking in the Gorge. The area around Te Apiti could become a real mountain biking and recreational hub,” he said. The construction has come as a result of a partnership between DOC, the Manawatu Mountain Bike Club and the Manawatu Gorge Biodiversity Group who aim to ‘preserve, sustain and enhance the biodiversity, scenic and recreational values of the Gorge’. The group also includes stakeholders from various councils, local iwi, Destination Manawatu, KiwiRail and the New Zealand Transport Agency. “This is a great example of partnerships with community groups that increase conservation and recreation outcomes,” DOC partnerships manager Chris Lester said. The track is expected to be completed by summer.

Winter 2014 Newsletter from Iain Lees-Galloway, MP for Palmerston North.

Opportunity to create better jobs This is the information age driven by smartphones, wifi and tablets. Our hunger to share information across a variety of channels and devices means the next upgrade is waiting just around the corner. The technological world moves fast and we have to be smart and adaptable if we want to keep up with the rest of the world. The economy is no different. Labour knows that if New Zealand is to compete in the modern world, we need to upgrade our economy to a high-tech, value-added economy with better jobs and higher wages.

Only Labour can deliver the bold economic upgrade New Zealand needs to keep up with a dynamic and changing world.

The Government had tinkered on outdated ideas for the past six years instead of presenting a bold plan to give Kiwis the Economic Upgrade we deserve. Labour will do this by focusing on three key areas: investment, innovation, and industry. The first key to upgrading to a high-tech highwage economy is ensuring investment is made where it’s needed most. Currently, most of New Zealand’s investment goes into the non-productive housing market where property speculators are creaming it. There is very little access to venture capital for productive Kiwi businesses, entrepreneurs, and start-ups. Labour’s plan is to significantly increase the local investment pool available to New Zealand businesses, in a way that benefits the country as a whole, by making KiwiSaver universal, restarting contributions to the Super Fund, and giving the Reserve Bank a Variable Savings Rate, which will increase New Zealanders’ KiwiSaver accounts instead of the cost of their mortgage payments.

Weekend markets Meet Iain at the markets: Albert Street, Saturdays 7-10:30 am Cloverlea, Sundays 8:30am-12:30pm

Labour will also encourage investment in productive businesses and deter overinvestment in the overheated housing market by introducing a Capital Gains Tax excluding the family home, restricting nonresident buyers’ ability to speculate on property, and building 100,000 affordable houses over 10 years.

Authorised by Iain Lees-Galloway, 46 Princess Street, Palmerston North

Innovation is the second, vital part of Labour’s Economic Upgrade. With greater access to investment and capital, Kiwi businesses are able to finance innovation to help them compete on the world stage. Labour recognises that if we don’t innovate then we can’t compete. Labour will also invest in future innovation by upgrading New Zealand’s literacy in Information and communications technology, by ensuring access to fast broadband within low-decile schools and introducing a “digital bill of rights” to give certainty to businesses and all Kiwis, that we can live, work and play safely and productively in the digital world. The third pillar in Labour’s Economic Upgrade is industry. Labour knows that for Kiwi businesses to succeed, Government should back them, not leave them to fend for themselves. Labour will stand with Kiwi businesses to deliver good jobs in every region. The Forestry and Wood Products Upgrade, and the Manufacturing Upgrade will introduce a number of measures designed to create skilled, well-paid jobs, and help grow the nation’s economy by capturing a greater share of our resource value and keeping it at home. Strategies such as requiring the Government to buy more Kiwi-made goods and procure NZ forestry products, reducing the costs of electricity and reforming monetary policy to achieve a fairer and more stable exchange rate – giving exporters a chance in international markets – will all help deliver a high-tech, valueadded economy with better jobs and higher wages. New Zealand can achieve so much more and be a place where global talent wants to live, but to achieve that future we will need serious policy changes driven by a bold and imaginative vision. Only Labour can deliver the bold economic upgrade New Zealand needs to keep up with a dynamic and changing world.

New Zealand’s investment in Research and development is currently 1.27 per cent (2012) of GDP, of which only 0.58 per

From Iain

cent is from the private sector. Compare that to Denmark, with 3.07 per cent (2010) or Israel at 4.34 per cent (2010).

One of the best ways to check if people are really better off over time is to look at the change in median personal incomes and adjust them for inflation to see if incomes are rising faster than costs.

Labour will turn this around by renewing the R&D tax credit and significantly increasing

While much of the data we get from Statistics New Zealand is presented at a regional level and is therefore of limited use locally, we do get reports on median incomes after each census that can be narrowed down as locally as the suburb we live in. That gives us a very

Crown investment in R&D, with a focus on co-funding from the private sector.

good idea how people are doing in our city. Between 2001 and 2006 the median personal income in Palmerston North increased from $23,520 to $27,770 (all figures are inflation adjusted to 2013 terms). That was strong, positive growth in real incomes that meant people were considerably better off, even when inflation is taken into account. However, between 2006 and 2013 the median income has fallen by nearly $800 to $27,000. Incomes in Palmerston North have not kept up with the rising cost of living. Increases to the cost of GST, GP visits, prescription charges, ACC, vehicle registration as well as everyday shopping for groceries and clothes have forced up the cost of living. Most people in New Zealand are still struggling to get ahead, and Palmerston North has sadly slipped slightly behind even in comparison with the rest of the country. Incomes have grown positively in Palmerston North before and they can be positive again if central Government chooses to support economic development in the regions. Labour wants to see more manufacturing and processing happen here in the regions and has announced a package of policies to achieve the economic upgrade our city needs. We are not yet at a crisis but we have been languishing for too long. We can make positive change that supports higher incomes. We just have to choose to do it.

Boosting innovation Food HQ is a collaboration of Palmerston North’s leading public and private sector organisations working in the field of Food Innovation. Massey University, The BioCommerce Centre, Fonterra, Plant and Food Research and the Riddett Institute have formed a cluster, working together to strengthen New Zealand’s food innovation capacity. Food innovation is one of Palmerston North’s key strengths and presents incredible economic opportunity for the Manawatu. The establishment of Food HQ signals to the world that Palmerston North is a place where talented people working in food innovation will be able to pursue rewarding and stimulating careers. Labour believes that we need to get more value out of our primary products through research and development and by supporting more local manufacturing and processing rather than sending raw products offshore. Food HQ is exactly what we want to see more of. It supports high quality jobs that pay well and the benefits flow to everyone in our region. However a recent decision not to continue Government funding for the Riddett Institute calls into question National’s commitment to innovation in our region. Authorised by Iain Lees-Galloway, 46 Princess Street, Palmerston North

A world leader in food science, the Riddett Institute has been a Palmerston North success story with multiple achievements including co-directors Dr Moughan and Distinguished Professor Harjinder Singh being awarded the Prime Minister’s Science Prize in 2012, the country’s premium acknowledgement of scientific work that makes a real difference in New Zealanders’ lives. Earlier this year, the Government made an unfathomable decision not to shortlist the Riddett institute for Tertiary Education Commission funding. That’s damaging for Palmerston North and for New Zealand. It is difficult to understand how a government could decide not to fund such a successful organisation working our country’s most important source of growth and economic development. However, there is an opportunity to fix the mistake. Additional funding for CoREs has been made available and the hope is that this time sense will prevail and the Riddett Institute will get the funding it needs. Food HQ is such a positive development that allows Palmerston North to play to its strengths. We need the Government to play its part now to help our region grow.

There’s no place like... “New Zealanders don’t ask for much: someone to love, somewhere to work, somewhere to live, and something to hope for” former Labour Prime Minister Norman Kirk once famously remarked. While no government can guarantee us someone to love, Labour believes the government should do everything it can to ensure every New Zealander has decent housing, a job that pays a fair wage, and a future to look forward to. We’ve all heard the stories of people unable to find a home they can afford to buy. Many of us will know people who are in that boat. I know of several young people who have all but given up on the dream of one day owning their own home. This shouldn’t be happening - not in New Zealand. A comparison of median house prices from the Real Estate Institute of New Zealand and median income data from Statistics NZ shows it would take up to seven annual median Auckland incomes to buy a middle-of-therange house in that city. In Wellington and Christchurch it would take up to six median incomes. It might be tempting to think that that is to be expected in the big cities, and that it doesn’t affect us here in Palmerston North. Indeed, it would only take up to four median incomes to buy a house here. But unfortunately, what happens in the big cities affects the rest of the country. Last year, in an attempt to cool demand in Auckland and Christchurch’s overheated housing markets, the Reserve Bank introduced Loan-to-Value Ratio (LVR) restrictions. Under the restrictions, anyone with less than a 20 per cent deposit will find it much harder to get a mortgage. The problem is, the LVRs don’t just apply in Auckland or Christchurch, they apply everywhere, including here in Palmerston North.

The LVRs mean that first home buyers looking to buy an average house in Palmerston North – costing around $286,000 currently - would need a deposit of $57,200 before the banks will even look at them. How many young couples are going to have that kind of cash sitting around? Not many. The LVRs have locked many first home buyers out of the market. Tim Mordaunt, founder of Property Brokers, was recently quoted in the Manawatu Standard describing the effect of the LVRs as “dramatic”, pointing out that, here in Palmerston North, the LVRs are “just nailing couples trying to get into the housing market”. In the same article, the Real Estate Institute Manawatu lamented that, since the beginning of this year, house sales have “consistently been down 30 per cent on the same time in 2013”. So what can we do? So far, National has done very little. They think that the ‘market’ will somehow solve the problem - something it has failed to do for years now. No, if home ownership is to be a realistic goal that our families and young people can achieve, we cannot afford to simply ‘leave it to the market’. A big challenge calls for a bold solution - and Labour has that solution. Reminiscent of the state housing programme championed by Michael Joseph Savage, Labour’s KiwiBuild programme will build 100,000 modern affordable homes for first home buyers over 10 years - roughly 10,000 houses per year - in areas with the highest housing costs. A recent report by Prefab NZ and the Building Research Association of NZ found that by using

hybrid prefabrication techniques combined with large scale construction, up $47,000 can be cut from the cost of building a typical 157 square metre house. By using these hybrid prefab techniques, the Government’s low cost of borrowing, buying materials in bulk to bring down the costs, and partnering with the private sector, Labour will not only vastly increase the housing supply, but will also create jobs, provide 2000 apprenticeships to help young people learn and earn, as well as generate $2 billion in economic growth for every year of the programme. KiwiBuild houses will be sold as they are built, at a small 1% margin to ensure the programme is self-funded, so there will be no overall cost to the taxpayer. Although most of these new houses will be built in places where there is high demand, such as Auckland and Christchurch, the significant increase in supply, and the relatively low price of these houses (between $300,000 $400,000 well below the median of $637,000 in Auckland) will allow the Reserve Bank to drop the LVR restrictions, helping hopeful first home buyers in Palmerston North and other regional areas to finally get into a home of their own. New Zealanders have always prided themselves on giving everyone a fair go. We shouldn’t give up on that principle or that legacy so easily. We can’t afford to lock families out of their futures. Now, more than ever, we need to stand together to deliver a solution that works for everyone. For more information on Labour’s plan to fix the housing crisis, including KiwiBuild, go to

Right now a number of state houses have been removed from Rugby Street in Palmerston North. Removing them is a positive step. However, there is no plan at this stage to replace them.

Housing plan urgently needed The provision of state houses, to ensure that everyone has access to one of the most basic human needs – a warm, dry, stable place to call home – was first begun by the Liberal Government of Richard Seddon and advanced into what we now recognise under the First Labour Government of Michael Joseph Savage.

houses needed to go but there should have been a plan to replace them with new state houses, or a mixture of state and private homes while more state houses were built elsewhere in the city. Instead, the land has been left doing nothing. There is still no plan for it and now there is no plan for Rugby Street either.

State housing represents one of New Zealand’s core values: That it is our collective responsibility to provide for the basic needs of every citizen and that no one will be left behind. It is something we can be proud of. But one of the enduring differences between National and Labour governments has been their approach to state housing.

In Highbury people have been moved out of state houses and those buildings have been left empty, boarded up and falling apart. They have become a target for vandalism, graffiti and theft with copper, hot water cylinders and other items being stolen from them. One of our largest state assets is being allowed to deteriorate and devalue without any plan whatsoever.

National has always sought to reduce the number of state houses, to make them more difficult to access, more difficult to stay in and to make the cost of living in one as close to the market rate as possible.

The Government wants to reduce the number of state houses in Palmerston North by 500. They claim that there is no demand for them. The only reason demand has fallen is because National changed the criteria to make it nearly impossible to be eligible for a state house. There is still plenty of need in our city; the Government just doesn’t want to acknowledge it.

Labour believes that increasing the number of state houses keeps private sector rents in check and encourages better quality rental housing. Labour understands the value of people having the stability of knowing they can live in their home and community without being forced to move around. We want everyone who needs a state house to have access to one, and for the rent people pay, to be proportional to their income.

Labour has a different plan; a positive plan. We will retain our state houses and invest in new homes to meet the real needs of our community. We will support stable communities by allowing people to live without the constant threat of eviction. We will make sure that state houses are affordable. Everyone who needs a state house will get a state house.

Right now a number of state houses have been removed from Rugby Street in Palmerston North. These houses have been empty for many years and long ago stopped being fit for human habitation. Removing them is a positive step. However, there is no plan at this stage to replace them. We have seen this before in Palmerston North. Housing New Zealand land on Botanical Road has been left vacant for seven years. Again those

It’s great to see the back of houses that no longer met the needs of our families and did not create positive communities. It’s time to take the next step and replace those houses with modern buildings that are fit for purpose, not just in Auckland, but here in Palmerston North and right across New Zealand. We need to continue a proud tradition of making a high quality home something every Kiwi family can access.

Willie Apiata named as Pride of NZ judge BY VAIMOANA TAPALEAO Former corporal Willie Apiata, recipient of the Victoria Cross for bravery, has been named as a judge in the Pride of New Zealand awards. Mr Apiata (pictured) admits he still finds it hard to think of himself as a hero and is quick to pass the title to someone else he thinks is worthy of it — his mother. “I’m still getting used to being called a hero,’’ Mr Apiata said. “For me, my hero is definitely my mum. As a single parent raising four kids, she was always there for us and never gave in when it got tough.” Mr Apiata was this week announced a judge for the Pride of New Zealand Awards. He is one of several high-profile Kiwis on the judging panel, which also includes former news anchor Judy Bailey, radio personality Polly Gillespie and netball star Maria Tutaia. Mr Apiata received the Victoria Cross, in 2007, while stationed as a Lance Corporal for the New Zealand SAS in Afghanistan. An enemy attack left one of the Kiwi soldiers critically injured and Mr Apiata made the decision to carry his comrade across the battlefield to safety — while under

fire. Asked to describe what bravery was to him, he said that was still hard to define, despite the many dangerous situations he had been in over the years. “Bravery comes in many shapes and forms and enables New Zealanders to do extraordinary things when called upon to help people in danger or distress .”

He acknowledged there were many unsung heroes in communities around the country. But for him, those who deserved a whole lot of praise were those who worked hard for youth. “People who give up their time to work in youth organisations — it’s often a thankless job, but they do so much to empower our young ones. And not just the disadvantaged ones, but all kids from around the country. “They are our future leaders, so it’s important to give them as many tools as we can.’’ Mr Apiata has worked with young people and given motivational speeches at different schools around the country. Up until recently he worked with at-risk youth for the High Wire Charitable Trust, based in Papakura; running a satellite camp at Awhitu Peninsula. He paid tribute to the trust’s chief executive, Dave Hopkins, for his work and for being one of his key role models in life. “[Dave] gives a lot of his time to the High Wire Charitable Trust, helping and teaching our youth. “A lot of people put in a lot of effort here and it’s great to be able to empower our kids and strengthen them for when they return back to their communities as better people.”

between business and community relationships opportunities. This inaugural Volunteer Recognition Awards event follows on from the BA5 at the Globe Theatre. This was a fantastic opportunity for organisations to publicly recognise the contribution of local volunteers. Everyday volunteers contribute to New Zealand society through areas such as

search and rescue, health care, victim support, and social services, contributing through a diverse network of people. The VRC is thankful for the sponsorship it received from the Palmerston North City Council, Ricoh and Settlement Support. This sponsorship has enabled this award ceremony to be held. Additional support has been received from a wide variety of local businesses to ensure every recipient

received a gift as recognition of their contribution. Nationally this year’s National Volunteer Week celebrates the collaborative effort of those who volunteer in our communities with the whakatauki (Ma¯ori proverb): Na¯u te rourou na¯ku te rourou ka ora ai te tangata; With your contribution and my contribution the people will thrive. The meaning behind this proverb is the community acts as a basket, containing the knowledge, experiences and energy of the people who contribute to it.

Manfeild proud of motorsport roots with HEATHER VERRY Manfeild Park chief executive No need for me to ask what many readers did for the weekend of June 6 and 7 — going by the size of the crowd at some point on Friday or Saturday, you were at Manfeild Stadium for the annual Feilding Craft Market. Our confidence about the venue switch, necessitated by the Feilding Civic Centre that has previously hosted this event being closed for earthquake strengthening, was always high. However, it’s fair to say the crowd counts on Friday and, especially, the day following were simply amazing. There was an independent count of about 6000 people. Clearly the public agree the stadium is a great place to hold such an undertaking; I’d say we also proved ourselves worthy. Even when the crowd was at its peak there didn’t seem to be any crowding. The car parking also performed well; I’m sure that many people — not least the elderly — would have appreciated our vast parking area. The ability to simply stop, step out and be inside within a matter of minutes is a real positive for this type of show. I do hope market organisers and the stallholders also enjoyed their time with us. Feedback suggests many enjoyed some very strong sales. We’re also told they liked the ambience. It was evident many vendors had come quite some distance to be at the market; I met quite a number who had travelled from the South

Island. This was my first experience of the craft market and I enjoyed the variety and number of stalls. It certainly took a while to visit the 200 stalls, resulting in a wallet that was considerably lighter from all the temptations. Events such as this reinforce Manfeild Park’s status as a true multi-events centre. Notwithstanding, we acknowledge that to many people our venue will first and foremost always be seen as a motor racing facility. It’s understandable this is the case; as last year’s celebration of 40 years since the circuit opened reminded us our motorsport roots are deep and well-entrenched. The biggest single motorracing event currently associated with us is, of course, the New Zealand Grand Prix. We were delighted not only to win host rights until 2017, our third consecutive term, but have also now secured the direct promotional responsibility for a great race that is so consistently associated with all the top New Zealand drivers — and some emerging overseas’ stars as well. 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

CRAFTY: Feilding’s annual craft show saw more than 6000 people browse the stalls at Manfeild. facility. We have always thought 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. With that in mind, it was disappointing to see a local daily source should seek to present a recent issue in a controversial context. I’m not going to go into the details of why there has been some negative comment created about the future involvement of the V8 Super Tourer category here, aside to say that — in my view — there is no reason why we will not see this exciting class, involving so many topname drivers, back with us at the next Grand Prix.

Yes, it’s true that circuit owners recently discussed, as a group, their concern about the V8 categories; as motorsport fans will know, there are two — the New Zealand V8s which run as a championship class, under MotorSport New Zealand, and the V8 Super Tourers that operate independently. We venue providers say this has fragmented the sport (the fields for both have, at times, been poor) and have suggested it’s time for the situation to be sorted. We have asked the governing motorsport body to accept the challenge of finding a solution. We at Manfeild enjoy all forms of motorsport and certainly appreciate the V8

categories are a particular drawcard. We certainly would not want to disappoint any fans by failing to have ‘the sound of thunder’ heard at our venue, especially for the Grand Prix. Watch this space. Manfeild’s record for striving to promote the Grand Prix through additional local content and activities speaks for itself; no circuit has worked harder, I would suggest, to recognise the importance of this race and of the Toyota Racing Series that has considerably lifted the stature and quality of competition. ■ Don’t forget to keep up with the latest news by checking out the Manfeild website,, and our Facebook page.

Manawatu has proud history in rugby Here at Sport Manawatu we are celebrating the past, present, and future of sporting talent in the Manawatu region. This month we’re highlighting the stars of our beloved game rugby. Sam Strahan was educated at Apiti School and showed promise from an early age. After only three games for Oroua in 1965, he was selected to represent Manawatu. In 1967, the All Black selectors were searching for a lock to partner Colin Meads; they found Sam and by the end of the 1967 season the 1.95 metre, 101kg lock was off to Britain with the All Blacks. The tour was one of the most successful ever, the All Blacks being unbeaten in 17 matches. All up he played for 36 years — 45 games for the All Blacks, including 17 test matches. After his last All Black game in 1973, Strahan played once for Manawatu then later retired from all first class rugby. In later years, Strahan served as president of the Manawatu Rugby Union, of which he is also a life member. He is a deserving Sport Manawatu Legend of Sport. Selica Winiata made her Black Ferns debut in 2008 against Australia and has been outstanding ever since. Winiata holds the try scoring and point scoring records in the Women’s

CALLING ALL sports Mums, Dads and family members.

Provincial Championship and the Black Ferns try scoring record. Recently, Winiata scored five tries as the Black Ferns beat Samoa 90-12 at Eden Park, also scoring one try in the 16-8 victory of Canada this month. With form like this, Winiata was selected for the Women’s Rugby World Cup in August where the Black ferns hope to gain a fifth straight title.

An upcoming star of New Zealand Rugby is New Zealand under-20 rugby player, Tim Cadwallader. Coming to the Manawatu from Puketapu, in the Hawkes Bay, Tim chose the Manawatu to study sport and exercise science at Massey University. Able to play both hooker and prop, Tim is a force to be reckoned with. Tim’s selection to the team for the IRB world junior championships, held in June, is just the beginning, and he has his sights set on a position in the Manawatu Turbos. Manawatu has always been known for its rugby talent and continues to uphold that reputation. Sport Manawatu and the region are proud to call them stars.

Increased choice in the CRV lineup is provided by a higher grade SN model combining a 2.0-litre engine and new continuously variable transmission which is positioned at the important $39,900 price point. The CRV SN takes styling cues from the top-end CRV Sport with foglights, privacy glass, daytime running lights and chrome door handles as well as the same double-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels seen on the 2.4-litre CRV N model. Added to the high end design features, the CRV SN adds automatic headlights, active cornering lights, a blind-spot parking mirror, heated windscreen wipers, navigation, smart-entry with push button start, ISOFIX child seat attachments and an additional storage pocket below the centre console on the driver’s side. These additions add up to a top spec package in the CRV SN, so drivers don’t need to compromise on luxury when they

opt for a two-wheel-drive SUV. New to the Honda New Zealand lineup is the CVT transmission which is exclusive to the SN model — the 2.0-litre S model continues with six-speed manual and five-speed automatic choices at $34,900 and $37,900 respectively. This transmission provides more responsive acceleration than the existing five-speed automatic two wheel drive CRV S, with acceleration figures similar to the previous generation 2011 CRV Sport 2.4L. The addition of a torque converter brings out the 2.0L engine’s best performance with torque improved across the rev range. The CRV SN benefits from a smoother driving feel. With no need to shift gears, acceleration is instant and seamless and the wider ratio range means off-the-line acceleration is improved. The SN model is also 42kg lighter than the CRV S auto model. Honda’s CRV SN’s fuel economy in Japanese testing is 6.9 litres per 100km, which is more than a 10 per cent improvement on the 7.7L/100km figure for the CRV S automatic.

SERVICES DIRECTORY Blanchetts Fine Furniture — saving the Kiwi We can safely tell you that not only is the Kiwi being saved from extinction by imported pests but the New Zealand furniture industry is also gaining a foothold in the battle against foreign imports. We’re seeing a gradual reversal of the import trend with some New Zealand retailers now specifying New Zealandmade product. We hope the buying public will support these people and get behind any organisation promoting Kiwi made. It’s taken a while but we think the public are now seeing the negative effects of imports on both our economy and lifestyle. People are realising the dangers of throwaway products and the waste created that ends up in our landfills — not only waste, but harmful toxins and chemicals within those products. Kiwis are saying yes to well-made, socially and environmentally sound Kiwi products. Product that is made with New Zealand pride and at wage rates that encourage

our economy. Blanchetts Fine Furniture say thank you to those retailers, designers and the general public pushing the groundswell of renewed support for New Zealand made. Blanchetts of 58 Napier Road, Palmerston North manufacture wonderful handcrafted soft furniture using New Zealand product and suppliers. Our pieces are being touted as tomorrow’s antiques today. We know that our furniture is made to stand the test of time and won’t be destined to fill our landfills. We know that you, the discerning buyer, will not be disappointed when you join the growing movement against those imports damaging the Kiwi — both our national bird and our national manufacturing. Intrigued? Then come and visit Blanchetts at 58 Napier Road, or call John or Judy on (06) 357-1224 or 021 932-693. We would love to give you the Kiwi Tour.

Graeme can service or repair any make/model of vehicle but he does have specialist knowledge of European vehicles, in particular, Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi, VW and Porsche, having worked for European Dealerships both in the UK and NZ. Graeme prides himself on offering an honest, reliable and competitively priced service to his customers.

As well as cars, Graeme can service/repair vans, trailers and motorhomes. Think we’re too far out of town?? We can offer a courtesy car for your convenience or arrange a drop off or pick up for you. Need any specialist parts for your Landrover or classic vehicle? Bull-Bars, CB-Radios, Snorkels, Suspension Lift-Kits? Want a Superchip upgrade to your Engine ECU?
