Home to fire history By Megan Connolly

“There’s nothing like it in New Zealand,” says Gavin Wallace, spokesperson of the National Museum of Forest and Rural Fire which will be officially opening this Saturday afternoon at 1pm on The Strand. “Unlike a book, you can come in and touch and see the history in front of you,” Gavin says. He has brought together pieces and footage from all over the country which give a glimpse of what life was like for the forest and bushfire forces in the past. On Saturday Gavin and several other passionate people will be there to show you around and explain some of the historical equipment. Continued on page 2. Gavin Wallace will be there to show you around this Saturday at the official opening of the National Museum of Forest and Rural Fire at the station on The Strand.PHOTO: Megan Conolly

Rural bushfire force history preserved in museum Continued from page 1. “We’re trying to preserve the heritage,” Gavin says. The New Zealand Forest Service was disestablished over 30 years ago. At the time, it was felt that there was a need to preserve its history and relics, but no one had funds or money to do that. However, items were tucked away for safekeeping all over the country, Gavin says. “The large-fire expertise was quickly missed, and a couple of years later, the National Rural Fire Authority was formed as a consequence. “However, that has now been supplanted with the amalgamation of rural and urban fire under Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ).” The Bushfire Force formed in 1970 and had a close association with officers of the Forest Service until its demise. Over the past year, the Wainuiomata Bush Force has made the space available for a small museum and called on favours from friends to gather old items from around the North Island.

Space may be small but it’s packed with goodies to explore like old portable pumps, a 1941 WWII trailer pump, and monsoon buckets. Gavin has also spent much of his time converting many old videos into a digital format that are played on four screens throughout the museum.

There are panels detailing the development of forest and rural fire. Several interactive teaching stations have been set up involving working gear, including a pumping demonstration and equipment to measure fire weather. “Kids can play with it and see how we used to estimate fire

danger,” Gavin says. If you’ve always wondered why there are two fire stations in Wainuiomata, now is your opportunity to check out how the rural bushfire force differs from the volunteer fire brigade. “There are different tactics to urban firefighting compared to vegetation,” Gavin says.

Lighthouse and visitor centre coming to East Harbour Park Two former lighthouse keeper’s cottages and an old generator building are well on the way to being transformed into accommodation and a visitor centre in East Harbour Regional Park. Greater Wellington Regional Council Eastern Harbour park ranger, Jo Greenman, says once renovated, the buildings at Baring Head (Orua-Pouanui) will encourage more visitors into the area.

“The Friends of Baring Head alongside many other volunteers: are working hard to create a new destination in Wellington. “We already have stunning views here, but once there’s shelter, a visitor centre and even a place for people to spend the night – this will be a great destination. “Being able to stay within metres of an operating lighthouse will be a very unique experi-

ence,” Jo says. The lighthouse, which opened in 1935, became automated in 1989 which lead to the closure of its nearby buildings. A design has been drawn up to turn the old generator building into a visitor ‘storytelling’ centre where park-goers can read about local Maori history as well as the history of the lighthouse itself. All of the main buildings have had their roofs replaced and two

have been stripped, repaired and externally painted. “The next phase will be to rewire and refurbish the inside of the generator building which we are hoping to have up-andrunning as a visitor centre within the next 12 months,” Jo says. If anyone would like to get involved in the work happening at Baring Head through funding, skills or materials visit www.

Art makes Tina feel more at ease By Megan Connolly

Local artist, Tina Rae Carter has known she wanted to be an artist since she was five years old, at an art class in school. She remembers first doing sketches of faces and seeing the colours on the page. “I remember thinking this is beautiful, this is right for me. “Doing art has led me to many different things,” Tina says. Over her time as an artist, she has worked on murals, as a backdrop artist for film and theatre, workshop facilitator at Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History, and her favourite, a painter. Tina studied and lived in Australia for a period of time too, earlier in her life. “Creativity is a real branch, an extension of ourselves, and we need it to help us and our mental health,” Tina says. “I’ve always liked to have several things on the go.” Tina, her husband and her two children moved to Wainuiomata two years ago from the Wairarapa and she has fallen in love with the nature surrounding the town and her house, she says. “I get so inspired by the biodiversity in the bush, by bird sounds and insects,” Tina says. “When nature is left to itself, everything gets bigger in the native bush.” She also has a passion for marine life and many of her projects this year have had a “flavour” of New Zealand

marine life. You have seen the whale mural Tina worked on with Tihei Rangatahi students on the corner of Hair Street and Moores Valley Road, completed earlier this year. “I talk about the environment with the kids while we do it,” Tina says. “When you draw and paint something you tend to feel empathy for it.” Much of Tina’s work explores

deep, thoughtful and interesting work that she thinks very deeply about. “I was feeling emotional and heavy about how a lot of things are blown out of proportion. “I needed to lighten it up by creating artwork with a really heavy subject,” Tina says. Even when she’s struggling with a piece of work, it’s truth still seems to find it’s way out, she adds. “If I keep sticking at it, pretty

soon that paint starts talking back,” Tina says. But art isn’t just about painter and the subject for Tina, it takes on a whole new meaning for her when she can work with others on a subject. “It boils down to connectivity for me. It’s so solitary so talking to people helps me understand why I’m creating it and what to do next. “Art makes me feel more at ease with being a human being.”

Wainuiomata’s Bilderbeck Hall on 102 Main Road will be used by police to collect firearms handed in during the buy-back and amnesty this coming September, 14-15. The collection will be open from 10am - 3pm. Police Minister Stuart Nash says “these collection events are at community sites that will be familiar to locals.” “Police want to make it as easy as possible for firearms owners to take part,” Stuart says. Details can be completed online. On the day, firearms owners should turn up with their personalised reference number, bank account details, their firearms licence, and a photo id. The firearms should be cleared of ammunition and in a safe carry bag. More information go to www.beehive.

Weather looking good for school holidays A cold southwest flow has produced a few showers for southern and western places earlier this week, but a front on Wednesday signals the beginning of an unsettled northwest flow. More fronts follow later in the

week and into next weekend. MetService meteorologist Andrew James explains. These fronts bring changeable conditions, so Kiwis should expect periods of rain as well as dry spells. “However, eastern areas of

both islands are sheltered by the ranges so probably won’t see much rain. “Parents will be pleased that, although there is some wet weather during the school holidays, the kids will get a chance to be active outside from time

to time. “Thursday looks like the best day this week for most places,” James continues. These northwesterlies also bring warmer than average temperatures, but unsettled conditions continue into next week.

Grab your wicked wheels

Clean car proposals

By Megan Connolly

The Government is looking at phasing in minimum fuel efficiency standards for new and used imported vehicles from 2021, to improve the fuel efficiency and emissions intensity of the light vehicle fleet. A feebate system is also being considered for imported vehicles so discounts are applied to certain low-emission vehicles, and fees are applied to high emission ones. For the first year, 2021, new electric vehicles could be in line for a rebate of up to $8,000 and used electric vehicles could get up to $2,600.

Take care on the roads Dear Editor Please be mindful of the road rules, life is precious. In Wainuiomata, we have three major intersections with STOP signs. I’ve seen cars fail to stop at all three repeatedly, just charging through, creating ‘near-misses’. STOP means STOP. STOP to avoid

hurting or killing others, taking loved ones from their families. Stick to the speed limit, our roads are not race tracks. I’ve seen drivers using The Strand like a motorway while there were children walking home from school. Someone will be killed, slow down, do the speed limit. The driver who causes pain and

suffering to others deserves the jail time that is the consequence of them breaking the law with their disregard of the road rules and poor driving skills. Life is precious, let’s try and observe the road rules to the best of our abilities, and live longer. Peter Wells

Soup, hot chocolates and good times By Megan Connolly

What’s better than warm soup on a cold Friday night? Community Hub kaitiaki, Aroha Te Kani, whipped up a

soup packed with vegetables and ham, giving it out to anyone who looked a little bit cold. Not to mention the free hot chocolates that went down

perfectly as dessert. Young local Emily Hargraves leant a hand for the evening by helping the Love Wainuiomata team set up and do some fun face painting on

any willing participants. A spontaneous Titi torea, which consists of rhythmic throwing and catching of sticks from person to person, even broke out.

This ‘& Kai’ event is run by the Love Wainuiomata team as a way to bring the community together on a Friday evening when everyone is waiting for takeaway meals.

Predator free Wellington launches Greater Wellington Regional Council chair Chris Laidlaw says Monday’s launch of stage one of Predator Free Wellington’s project is an important step towards improving biodiversity in our region. “We’re so proud to have supported, and been involved in, what will be an amazing achievement on the Miramar Peninsula, a true world-first. “We’ve supplied our expertise of more than twenty years designing and managing biosecurity projects across the region to support Predator Free Wellington since the very beginning.” Chris says the goals of Predator Free Wellington very much align with those of Greater Wellington – to improve native biodiversity in the region, and “bring back our dawn chorus for everyone. “From our perspective, it has taken three years, many planning documents, countless site visits and a lot of hard work to get to this stage. The communities on the Miramar Peninsula should be praised and recognised for their astounding efforts,” Chris says.

It’s going to be an experience like no other for Wainuiomata High School students Kayla Wilson and Jessica Agius who will be heading off on exchange to two different countries. Kayla will be heading off to America this weekend for a month and Jessica will be heading off to Italy in September for 10 months. Both say they are very excited but nervous about their trip. Kayla, who hasn’t been on a plane further than Australia, is very interested to see how well she goes on a 12-hour flight, she says, but is still excited nonetheless. She will be living in a University hall

Unlike Kayla, Jessica will be staying with a host family, who she says are looking forward to showing her around and learning a little bit of English. “We’re both excited to be able to represent New Zealand in a good way,” Kayla says.

Homedale lights up for Christmas A tale as old as time for youth theatre group in July By Megan Connolly

Christmas in July, you ask? Absolutely! This Saturday evening Homedale Village and Love Wainuiomata are hosting a midwinter Christmas event from 5pm to 7pm. There will be something for everyone so make sure you wrap up warm. Fairy lights will light up the night and the street while you check out the local stores and market of stall holders. If you’ve forgotten your gloves, don’t worry because you can pop into the Homedale Cafe, Kotuku Cafe, for a warm hot chocolate or just to escape. Across the road, at Kereru Creative there will

be cookie icing which you can decorate with your own elaborate designs. It’s your choice whether you eat it or not! Local musician, Joel Ruttenberg will be singing some tunes on his guitar and the Wainuiomata Choir, Hutt City Chorale, will be lifting spirits with their beautiful harmonies. Youngsters will be easily occupied with a treasure hunt and face painting. Plus a great community feel! Did you know Christmas in July originated and is mostly celebrated, in the southern hemisphere because it’s the peak of our winter? There is also a movie comedy called Christmas in July which was made in 1940 and follows the story of a man who is fooled into believing he has won $25,000 in an advertising slogan contest.

Can an arrogant young prince be saved from the spell which has turned him into a terrifying beast and his servants into enchanted household items including a teapot and a chest of drawers? You will have to wait until Wainuiomata Youth Theatre group, Acting Out’s production of Disney’s Beauty and The Beast in October to find out the answer. Following last year’s highly successful Sound of Music, this will be the second show produced by the group, and it will take place in Wainuiomata High School’s auditorium from October 3 to 6, with three evening performances and two matinees.

Wainuiomata children ranging in age from nine to 16 form the cast, supported by an enthusiastic team of parents with a love of musical theatre. Set designer/builder and dtage manager, Jeremy Yuile, says plans were well advanced with set building and costume creation underway. “Obtaining the rights combined with set building and costume costs makes putting shows on quite expensive, so we are getting quite clever at repurposing items and using things in new ways”, Jeremy says. The group is planning a car rally fundraiser on July 20 to help pay for the show. Head to ActingOutNZ for further details.

Bad guys doing good By Megan Connolly

The world of Star Wars descended on the Wainuiomata Community Hub library on Saturday morning when three Stormtroopers turned up for story time. Thankfully they didn’t bring

along their evil overlord, Darth Vader, otherwise, he may have put a bit of a damper on the morning. Starwars Storytime is part of a month-long literary festival, Beyond the Page, and the biggest one in New Zealand. Youngsters did some Star Wars yoga, read stories and played a

Star Wars version of the classic ‘Simon Says’ renamed to ‘Yoda Says’. Around 17 people came along to the Storytime session. And it wasn’t just youngsters that got excited to see real-life Stormtroopers, adults also got a buzz out of seeing them and

42, and often do charity events, hospital visits and the Armageddon Expo. Their motto is ‘bad guys doing good’. Stormtrooper Shada Biker Scout TB-27138 says his favourite part of the experience is seeing kids smile.

Volunteers play huge part in Pioneer Church

Sharing stories of Wellington By Tom Etuata.

Volunteers and helpers from the local Garden Club maintain the garden surrounding the historical Pioneer Church. PHOTO: Supplied

The Pioneer Church has a small committee which has recently increased from seven to nine dedicated ladies but they are extremely grateful for the support they receive from the wonderful community of Wainuiomata. The majority of the 81 plots in the churchyard are tended by the descendants of the pioneer families who own the grave, or by other members of the community who have adopted a grave when there are no family members who can do so. Spokesperson Joyce Lockyer says, “It is lovely to see the fresh flowers which are left

on the various graves as well as the general tidying of the surrounding area.” The president of the RSA always leaves a poppy on graves belonging to the men who served in our World Wars and he has also recently restored the Returned Serviceman plaques in place on these graves. “One of our committee members also dedicates many hours to maintaining the headstones and wherever possible making the ancient lettering more legible,” Joyce says. The Church’s main fundraiser this year was to provide Marshalls for the Tough Guy/

Gal event held yearly at Camp Wainui where they filled over 120 spots over four days. “Some of our supporters do all four days and many actually take annual leave to help us,” Joyce adds. The large church gardens are now being tended on a monthly basis by an enthusiastic group of women from the Garden Club and the committee, who meet on the last Wednesday of the month from 1 to 3pm. The garden club recently planted all the daffodils donated by supporters of the church and these are now sprouting and will soon be a great display.


When I was a child living in Wellington in the 1970s, the Wellington CBD had an abundance of movie theatres. My favourite movie theatre when I was a kid was Cinerama, 59-61 Courtenay Place. It was the movie theatre where I saw Star Wars for the very first time in the summer of 1977. I was six years old. Built in 1933-34 it was originally called the State Theatre until 1966, when it was renamed Cinerama – part of a chain of movie theatres which used three overlapping film projectors to screen movies on a huge wide curved screen. In 1972 the curved screen was replaced with a wide-format flat screen to enable the screening of 70mm wide format films. At that time, it had the largest conventional screen in Wellington (even exceeding the Embassy). In my youth, Cinerama was the place to see the top films of the time. Not only did I watch Star Wars for the first time there, I also saw Battlestar Galactica (1979), The Empire Strikes Back (1980), Dune (1984), and dare I say it, Crocodile Dundee (1985), Rambo: First Blood Part 2 (1985) and Top Gun (1986). With commercial property developers taking over several old Wellington

buildings in the 1980s, Cinerama eventually closed and was demolished in 1987. Even though it’s long gone, the memory of Cinerama still lives on. The original front sign is currently displayed in the Telling Tales section on the ground floor at Wellington Museum. PBA

Youngsters hunt for clues By Megan Connolly

There was plenty happening down Queen St and at the Community Hub on Sunday afternoon for a school holiday Scavenger hunt! Youngsters of all ages had to follow all the clues and try all the activities that spanned from the Community Hub Library all the way to the fairy garden at the top end of Queen Street and took anywhere between 20 to 40 minutes to complete.

PHOTOS: Megan Connolly

Around 120 people came out over the two hours which meant there was never a dull moment, an organiser says. Even though the sun was shining, there were hidden pictures of Penguins to track down, often lurking in the most obvious yet least suspecting places. Reece Geursen from Te Waiheke Hutt City Science was there to do fun wacky experiments and smash salt ice cubes to retrieve the hidden lollies.

SPORT Sports talk


with Jacob Page

Marks proves his NBA worth yet again Sean Marks turned back the clock and became the biggest name in New Zealand basketball once again. The Kiwi was a journeyman bench player for much of his NBA career from 1998 to 2011 but he was the first to make it to basketball’s biggest stage from this country so we loved him all the same. He did win a championship with the San Antonio Spurs in 2005 and as an assistant coach

with the team in 2014. Now, he is the general manager of the Brooklyn Nets, the NBA franchise living in the shadows of the famed New York Knicks. Last week, Marks changed that narrative by landing the games best player Kevin Durant and one of the other best free agents Kyrie Irving. Marks had received universal praise before the move by rebuilding the Brooklyn team to be

a playoff team last season without any flashy stars on the roster. It is expected, now the 43-yearold has landed two of the biggest names in the sport, they could contend for a title in the 2019/2020 season. Forget anything Steven Adams has done in the sport, what Marks has pulled off is the biggest achievement by a New Zealander in the NBA. He has enticed two big players to

hopefully take his talented roster to the next level. Marks is regarded as an astute basketball mind. Someone who used his time riding the pine to learn the ins and outs of an NBA team back-office as well as coaching. Famed Spurs coach Gregg Popovich holds the former center in the highest regard and the moves last week is proof why. Marks’ stock has risen dra-

matically and his team has now become the best team in the New York area. Marks was a trailblazer as a player, opening doors for New Zealand basketball players and did not get the dues he deserved because he was a bits and pieces player at best. Well, Marks is at it again and he might have had his biggest hand in an NBA Championship in a few years time.

Rylee swings in Brisbane By Megan Connolly

Young local, Rylee Watt, headed off to Brisbane, Australia, last week for a softball 10-day training and tournament with the New Zealand Developing Sox team. At 14-years-old, the young softball player is the only Hutt Valley softball member and one of three from the Wellington Region to get this opportunity. A squad of 22 was selected and then the final team selected after a training camp in Christchurch several months ago. But Rylee is no stranger to travelling with softball. Last year she travelled to Canada and America as a captain for the Academy team. Rylee’s mum, Loren Watt, is excited for her daughter to learn and gain more experience during her time on the developing team. “I like watching her thrive,

learn and experience new things,” Loren says. The trip to Brisbane, however, isn’t complete without a trip to the theme park attraction but for Rylee it won’t all be fun. During Rylee’s time in Brisbane, she started with training, moved onto scrimmage practice games and played full games against the under17s which all consist of Australian state teams and are a grade above the Under15’s team she plays in. When Rylee was asked who she would like to play alongside at the Jersey presentation last Thursday, she says it would be Junior White Sox player Mereana Makea. While the person who inspires her to be better is Erin Blackmore, a Hutt Valley softballer. Rylee currently trains with the Junior White Sox Hutt Valley and Wellington players which her mum says is a great experience.

Senior 2 Ulalei Moso’oi v WASC 1 – win 32-28 Ulalei Moso’oi had a good run against Wellington Area Sports Club’s top team on Saturday despite missing their key shooters. Defenders Lagi Moananu and Melesete Sagaga took over the shooting responsibilities and took a surprising two-goal lead in the first quarter. Defenders Karen Sagaga and Summer Pere combined well to gain tips and intercepts for Moso’oi to score down the other end. In the second half, Pere joined Melesete Sagaga in the shooting circle to increase the margin to four goals. Throughout the court, the play was controlled by midcourters Rae Moeahu and Lei-Marie Rooney with the assistance of defender Angelene Vaauli. Moso’oi maintained their

composure to win 32-28. The player of the match, Summer Pere says “We are just a social team made up of Ulalei’s foundation members from 2004, former Premier 1 players, mothers, and young players just wanting to have a run. “We are happy with the win but even happier we finished the game injury-free,” Summer says. International Representation Ulalei will be missing a few of their key players over the next few rounds due to international commitments.
