A massive fundraising effort from a dedicated class of year 5 Queen Margaret College students has enabled a better life for underprivileged children in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Earlier this year a craft market day was held which resulted in $1,500 in funds raised. Year 5 teacher Jane Harris says the idea came from student Gloria Tay who took action during the Rights and Responsibilities topic of the “Who We Are� PYP Unit of Inquiry. Continued on page 2.

the children in Cambodia,” Jane says. The funds have helped in a number of ways — helping the Cambodian children to be rescued from a life of poverty by attending a school

for free and having access to education. If not for this school, the children would be making a living at rubbish tips as they cannot afford to attend school, Jane says.

G lo r i a d i s c ove r e d h e r grandparents had founded the Emmanuel Community School in Ca mbodia for under-privileged children. She asked them to come into school and talk to her class about the school. And after hearing about the school the class decided to do what they could to help. “We decided as a class to raise money for books for the Emmanuel Community School Library and asked Gloria’s grandparents if they could take our funds to Cambodia when they travelled there in June,” Jane says. With the funds an entire library was fi nanced which came as a huge boost for the school which survives on donations. “Gloria wrote up an action plan for Market Day and

The Wellington City Council is seeking public feedback on a future community in Upper Stebbings Valley and Glenside West – what they value as part of their community, how that can work for this new community, and other things it would like the council to consider. Residents are invited to share their views in an online survey on the proposal. It is found on the Wellington City Council website at and submissions need to be in by 5pm on September 3. T he Wel l i ng ton Urba n Growth Plan (2014) identified 260 hectares of land in Upper Stebbings Valley and Glenside

West as an area available for growth. The area lies between Churton Park and Tawa – Upper Stebbings Valley, Marshall Ridge and the western hills of Glenside. It is zoned as rural in the District Plan and is mostly open farmland or pine tree plantations. The council is planning to create a high-level plan for the future of the Upper Stebbings Valley and Glenside West area – how it might look, what people will need and what facilities should be provided. The plan will include things like transport, housing density, parks and reserves, water

management and resilience. It will be approved by councillors before work is done to include it in the District Plan. Background information for the area has already been gathered and reports are available on online: cultural values - how mana whenua value the land, a local history report with details of settlement of the area, a transport report analysing the impact on existing infrastructure and making new transport connections. There is also a landscape and local ecology report on values of the landscape to the area, and information on birds, lizards, water quality and stream life.

In the coming months, the council plans to bring together the people and organisations with an interest in the project to help with the early planning. This will involve creating a vision and design principles for future development. Feedback from the survey will be used here. By October/November, options for how the area could change will be available and the council will be asking for feedback. Then the options and feedback will be considered, with a draft plan coming out in December 2018. Councillors will consider the plan in early 2019.

Karori to commemorate 1918 influenza epidemic

inbrief news New wasp release approved The samurai wasp, an organism new to New Zealand, can now be used to fight any invasion by the brown marmorated stink bug, following a decision by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA Groups representing the avocado, apple and pear, kiwifruit, tomato, vegetable, and wine industries, and the Ministry for Primary Industries had noted that in the USA and Europe, the stink bug has caused severe economic damage to horticultural crops, and has invaded homes during winter. After a public hearing and consideration of 69 submissions, 65 in favour, the EPA has approved the application, subject to controls, including the release only after a stink bug invasion, and only at the location of the incursion.

An epidemic that killed 50100 million people worldwide is to be commemorated at Karori Cemetery. During November to December 1918 the influenza epidemic brought Wellington to a standstill with 700 deaths in the region attributed to the deadly outbreak. Of the 700 deaths, 656 of the victims were buried in Karori cemetery. Commemoration project organiser Barbara Mulligan says on one particular day 54 people were interred at the cemetery. “It had arrived in Auckland around October 1918 and quickly worked its way south.” “The trains were still running,

ships were still sailing, until so many people got sick it all ground to a halt,” Barbara says. During that period large groups congregated to celebrate the Armistice, when WW1 hostilities ceased, and would have contributed to the rapid spread of the influenza, she says. “People became sick and began dying early in November 1918 and the number of those infected then increased steadily, peaking in the week November 19-26 and continuing for the next few weeks. By mid-December the infection had more or less run its course, though there were still some deaths in the first few months of 1919. Nearly all of those who died

in Wellington were buried in Karori Cemetery and 100 years later many of their graves have been cleaned, research has been done into the lives of more than 130 of those who died, and a commemoration programme has been developed to acknowledge the impact of the epidemic. The commemoration programme will be held over the weekends of November 18 and 25 from 11am until 4pm. Both days with information available at the Historic (Mortuary) Chapel about the epidemic and about those who died. There will be guides in each of the areas where people were buried to talk about those who were buried, and the work the

project has undertaken to clean and tidy their graves. Interpretation panels will be installed in each of the four areas, and the Wellington City Council will have completed a digital storybook which those with smartphones will be able to access. As part of the commemoration, Wellington Mayor Justin Lester will make a short presentation at 11.00am on the 18th. Professor Geoffrey Rice, author of two major publications about the epidemic in New Zealand, will also be making a public presentation later the same day.  For more details: www.1918influenzakarori.

inbrief news Nominate Wellingtonian

St Benedict Superhero performance

The 2019 New Zealander of the Year should be from Wellington, says Mayor Justin Lester. He is urging locals to think hard about fellow residents deserving of recognition before nominations close on September 17, saying we all know someone in our community doing something special to make Wellington a better place to live. The awards recognise a diverse range of Kiwis of all ages and also community organisations, including those in science, business, the arts, cultural or community involvement, sport, education and health. The 2019 Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year, and winners in supporting categories, will be announced on February 21, 2019. For more information or to nominate someone visit

Deadline looms for television review Parents and caregivers have until the end of the week, 31 August 2018, to have their say about the timebands, parental locks and classifications labels that help to protect what their children watch on free-to-air television. The Broadcasting Standards Authority (BSA) is considering whether changes should be made to the tools that have been widely used by New Zealanders for decades. Options being considered include removing all of the timeband restrictions, altering them, or keeping them the same. The BSA is also considering whether free-to-air television should adopt the same classification labels as pay television to provide consistency. It would mean switching from G (General), PGR (Parental Guidance Recommended) and AO (Adults Only) to G, PG, M (Mature), 16 and 18. They can give their feedback through a short online survey, by emailing info@ or by writing to Broadcasting Standards Authority, PO Box 9213, Wellington 6141.

Australasian TB conference comes to Wellington

Churton Park community walkers take a break on their trek along the Skyline Walkway. PHOTOs: Ian Duncan

For two days in Wellington from tomorrow, researchers, clinicians, practitioners and policy makers will gather for a conference focused on tuberculosis. Tuberculosis (TB) remains a cause of high health burden worldwide. TB is ranked as one of the top 10 contributors to mortality worldwide – in 2015, 1.8 million deaths were due to TB. Around 1200 new cases occur in Australia and 300 in New Zealand annually. The conference will be held at Museum of Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, New Zealand.

trees. After another ten-minute climb they left the bush and threaded through a small pine forest, then emerged into open grass land. By now, however, they were in a cool northerly. The next stop was the viewing platform at the top of Mt Kaukau. Surprisingly, given how prominent Kaukau and the telecommunication tower is from the suburbs, it wasn’t so easily spotted from the direction they took. Luckily, the leader knew exactly where to head. Even that close to the suburbs – the walkers seemed to be looking straight down on Crofton Downs

Earlier this year, with autumn drawing in, the Churton Park Community Walkers led a trek along part of the Skyline Walkway. Their reward, for about 12 kilometres and three and a half hours walking, was coffee and cheese muffins at Café du Parc. The walkers started at the northern end of Otari-Wilton Bush, passing a few kereru perched quietly and glimpsing kaka scudding through the taller trees After about 20 minutes they enjoyed a stop to admire the ancient

Cool stuff happening

Karori Brooklyn Trust milestones The Karori Brooklyn Community Charitable Trust (KBCCT) held its eleventh AGM last week with the news that the Trust, working through the Lion Foundation, has now made grants of $2.1m to community projects over those 11 years. Trust chair Andy Foster says: “In the year to June 2018 we’ve distributed $227,809, with major grants being to support strengthening and refurbishment of Makara’s St Matthias Church; replacing the Karori community bus, relevelling Karori Normal’s netball courts; buying all the traps for Predator Free Karori; supporting Wellington College’s new performing arts auditorium; a new heating system for Vogelmorn Community Hub; lighting for Karori Arts and Crafts Centre; plants for the Makaracarpas riparian planting; a youth worker salary at Karori Community Centre; and Karori Lions Centennial project and creating a plant laboratory at Otari-Wilton’s Bush. “Many other organisations received smaller grants.” Over 11 years, their grants have been

spread across 188 separate applications says Andy, with 7.2 percent going to pre-school projects, 11.7 percent to schools, 18.7percent to sport, 33.8percent to community projects, 3.8 percent to social services. 9.9 percent to environmental projects. 7.7 percent to eldercare, and 7.1 percent to heritage projects. The Trust reports to a ‘College of Electors’ of major community organisations says Andy. “And we are delighted that the College of Electors last week endorsed our recommendation of Sophie Jerram as a new trustee. “Trustees are all voluntary and we want people with close connection to their communities. Sophie is a long-term Brooklyn resident, and is heavily involved in arts, community, and sporting organisations.“ (KBCCT is a Charitable Trust established in 2006 out of the Terawhiti Licensing Trust (TLT) and decides on grants applications to the Lion Foundation within the communities of Karori, Brooklyn, Makara, Northland, Wilton, Kelburn and Aro Valley, using proceeds from the Pickle Jar in Karori. )

Call to give on Daffodil Day

Eight up and coming 19-26 year old designers are coming together to launch “Cool Sh*t Happens” an experimental pop-up shop running for 8 weeks in Wellington CBD. Signing the lease together has made the huge upfront cost possible for the emerging artists. They are running free workshops and heavily advocating to other young New Zealanders that they can make their dreams a reality right now, by working together. Zoe Flesher a 23-year-old Victoria University student has always had a passion for creativity. “In more recent years it has been an important way for me to cope with my ongoing struggles with depression, anxiety and insomnia,” Zoe says. “Being quite a shy person, I have always kept my creations to myself, however after some encouragement from friends and family I decided to start sharing my creative projects with others. I began playing around with polymer clay in February this year and

fell in love with the medium – I adore using texture and colour in my work so it seemed the perfect fit, and thus Lunar Blue Designs was born.” Zoe says running Lunar Blue Designs has made her step out of her comfort zone and opened up more doors than she could ever have imagined. “ I’ve met some amazing people along the way and am so excited to be a part of Cool Sh*t Happens. Making colourful earrings, silly pins, and haphazard wall hangings has now become my job and I couldn’t be happier. My hope now is that I can pass on a bit of that happiness through my work. Sometimes adding a little colour to an outfit can make your day just that little bit more bearable. Other times you just want to let the world know how you feel so you can slap a grumpy face pin on your shirt and call it a day,” She says. The pop- up store runs from the 18th of September until November 11th at 134 Vivian Street.

Friday August 31 will see over 12,000 volunteers will take to the streets around the country as part of New Zealand’s largest street appeal. Mike Kernaghan, CEO, Cancer Society of New Zealand says every dollar dropped into their collection buckets, donated online, or in any ANZ branch, will be spent on supporting New Zealanders with all types of cancer and helping prevent future cancers through vital research. “We have 12,000 amazing volunteers who, come rain or shine, are committed to helping the country unite against cancer. Many of them have their own personal story and wear their daffodil, not only as a symbol of hope, but to remember the loved ones they have lost to cancer,” Mike says. Now in its 28th year, Daffodil Day is the Cancer Society’s largest annual fundraising event “When someone hears that they, or a loved one, has cancer it is devastating. The impact of a diagnosis can be far-reaching. There are often so many unanswered questions and so much to consider that it can be overwhelming for everyone involved. “It might be how they will get to hospital, where they will stay during treatment, how they will feed their pet while away from home, or who they can talk to about their cancer.

“Thanks to the generosity of New Zealanders on Daffodil Day the Cancer Society can step up with practical and emotional support,” Mike says. The Cancer Society offers accommodation close to all major hospitals in New Zealand for patients and their carers if their treatment requires frequent hospital visits, but they do not live nearby. During 2017, the Society provided 49,000 bed nights and drove almost 4700 patients to and from their treatment, covering more than one million kilometres. The Cancer Society is committed to reducing the incidence of future cancers through its health promotion activities and is the largest charitable funder of cancer research in the country. “When you put your money in the bucket on Daffodil Day, you might not be a researcher or scientist, but you are actively taking part in ground-breaking cancer research and supporting a person with cancer. “Our donors can be very proud of the impact they are having in their own communities. Thanks to their support the Cancer Society is in your local area every day helping educate people through health promotion programmes such as SunSmart schools and providing cancer prevention initiatives,” Mike says.

Karori Association has become aware that Karori’s stream regularly exceeds safety levels for E.coli, which can cause disease itself, but is also considered to be a marker for the potential presence of other bacteria and viruses. During the last decade testing of water taken from four sites in the suburb upstream from the Western Waste Water Treatment Plant shows its quality ranked as E on a scale from A-E. Data shows that the median measure taken at the Makara Peak Mountain Bike Club car park in South Karori Road has been at 1400-1500 cfu/100ml for several years that is 11 times greater than 130 cfu/100ml*. cfu is a level considered acceptable as good for swimming. Four sites in total have been monitored, three of these sites are showing levels 4 or more times

greater than is acceptable. Popular Karori Park is used by many for walking, cycling, playing and collecting watercress. Children use the Karori stream for wading and exploring the riverbanks. It is also close to Karori West Normal School and a playground, yet the stream is simply quite unsafe for, wading, swimming, taking any kind of food, or for other recreational activities. Parents must be seriously concerned about their children accessing the stream. This means Karori Stream is not safe for wading or swimming within the suburb, and at least as far south as the Makara Peak MBC car park. Karori Association believes the causes of the contamination of the water heading towards the plant are old leaking ceramic pipes, faulty gully traps, illegal connections, cross-contam-


ination and infiltration. Karori Association urges both the Regional and City Councils to address this serious situation. Our thoughts are that public health warning notices could be placed at access points to the stream and an information programme with suggestions to residents of how to deal with the risks, especially where open stream runs through their private property, would help greatly. Karori Association will continue to lobby the relevant authorities (WCC and GW) to ensure that this issue is at the forefront of their plans for environmental protection and improvement. We acknowledge there is no quick fix. *.E.coli values are measured in terms of Cfu (Colony forming units, the number of viable bacteria or fungal cells) per 100ml of water.

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Q: How do you feel about the new WCC policy on charging for CBD weekend parking?

Sarah Wood, Grenada Village “We go to the Freyberg pool regularly, so there are pool and swimming lesson fees and now parking fees. It’s just an extra cost.”

Des Morgan, Newlands “It won’t make much difference. And it might mean there are more parks available so there’s a positive side.”

Dennis Kelly, Tawa “I’ve got no car, so it won’t make a difference. Hutt businesses put money in. Perhaps they could do that in Wellington.”

Adrienne Dawson, Newlands “I don’t use free parking. I don’t take my car in. Anyway you can work around these things.”

Marjorie Leckner, Broadmeadows “I think it’s terrible. I bet a lot of retailers think it’s terrible too. “

Sita Thakersi, Johnsonville “I hate the idea of paying in the weekends and that’s why I won’t be going in as often.”

Compare this to the insensitivity shown by the alleged owner of the offending dog, who has bought the dog back to the park – muzzled to be fair - for exercise. Could someone explain to me please how it is that this dog hasn’t been put down? I have seen small children play on that deck (and interact positively with Jimmy) and I shudder to think about what could happen if the dog “slipped his collar” again, not to mention the danger to lowflying kereru.

Kereru slaughtering carries a $10,000 fine, so a muzzle is a good idea. The dog allegedly had only been in the control of his new owner for three days, so what sort of emotional commitment is here? Does the dog have a history of mauling and was the new owner notified? Does the refuge that supplied this dog even know what has happened? There are thousands of gentle, loving dogs that need re-homing across New Zealand and to keep a cat-killer alive with the potential for more trauma defies common sense. Viv Chapple Ngaio

Jimmy will be missed Dear Editor I was very sad to hear that Jimmy the black and white cat who hung out at the cafe in Khandallah Park has passed away. Jimmy was a real icon and was very popular with the cafe customers and the cafe staff took great care of him. I was in the cafe a few weeks ago and gave Jimmy a pat and we had a quick chat as he lay

on one of the chairs soaking up the sun streaming through the window. This was the last time I saw Jimmy alive. I also feel for the owner of the dog involved who will be absolutely devastated. RIP Jimmy. You will be missed by so many people. Megan Barber Johnsonville

Orange Day march for road safety More than half of Wellington’s primary schools will be represented at this year’s Orange Day Parade on Friday 7 September – in a mass celebration of our school road patrols. The march from Parliament is held to celebrate and acknowledge the hard work of school traffic safety teams who are out rain or shine to help students cross the road and get to school safely. Over 1400 students will march from Parliament along Lambton Quay and Willis Street to Wakefield Street, and then enjoy a celebration at the Michael Fowler Centre hosted by Wellington City Council. Wellington Mayor Justin Lester says the number of students regularly walking to school in Wellington is increasing, making the role of school traffic safety teams more important than ever. “We have 53 schools with patrols at

school crossings and the patrollers help around 14,000 students to cross the road safely. It’s a massive achievement for Wellington and they should quite rightly be proud of what they do”. Wellington School Community Officer Aaron Dann, who trains road patrollers, says they make a big contribution to keeping our school communities safe during one of the busiest times on the roads. “School patrollers are out in all weathers, doing a great job keeping their peers safe. Orange Day is an opportunity for Wellingtonians to acknowledge the job they do for road safety, and it’s also a reminder that drivers should slow down and be alert when passing schools,” he says. A rolling road closure will be provided by the Police from 10am – 10.45am. Please follow their instructions, and expect some delays along the parade route.

Z Energy and Flick Electric joining forces is a great example of Wellington-based businesses growing and innovating says Wellington Chamber of Commerce CEO John Milford. “Z Energy is one of the largest fuel retailers in New Zealand, so it makes sense their desire to diversify into the electricity sector saw them pick out another Wellington success story, Flick Electric,” says Mr Milford.

Wellington Mayor Justin Lester, a Johnsonville resident and an advocate for the new footpath, joined Bruce Patterson and the three northern ward city councillors Deputy Mayor Jill Day, Malcolm Sparrow and Peter Gilberd as they viewed the newly-completed walkway from Grenada Village to the motorway interchange. PHOTO: Supplied

A paved footpath from Glenside to Grenada Village has been on the planning board for a decade - in fact since Mark Avenue was extended in 2008, finally linking Grenada Village with the Johnsonville Porirua Motorway. At the time, the Grenada

Village Community Association requested a footpath be constructed down Grenada Drive to provide pedestrian access to Middleton Road in Glenside. However, the cost to benefit ratio at that time was too small, and the association’s

chair, Bruce Patterson, said that “the City Council decided that the project would be delayed until there was more housing in the area and a bigger population.” Deputy Mayor Jill Day said that this has now happened and, after further requests by

the Association, backed by the Mayor and local councillors, the footpath was completed in July. “People on foot no longer have to walk through long grass or walk on the road.” The second stage, from the motorway to Middleton Road, will be completed next year.

Daffodil Friday August 31st


Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.

Cancer Society Unites New Zealand Against Cancer on Daffodil Day The Cancer Society needs your support this Daffodil Day so that together we can beat cancer in New Zealand. On Friday over 12,000 volunteers will take to the streets around the country as part of New Zealand’s largest street appeal. Every dollar dropped into their collection buckets, donated online, or in any ANZ branch, will be spent on supporting New Zealanders with all types of cancer and helping prevent future cancers through vital research. Now in its 28th year, Daffodil Day is the Cancer Society’s largest annual fundraising event. The money raised allows the charity to provide practical support to those affected by cancer - patients as well as whānau and friends. “When someone hears that they, or a loved one, has cancer it is devastating. The impact of a diagnosis can be far-reaching. There are often so many unanswered questions and so much to consider that it can be overwhelming for everyone involved,” says Mike Kernaghan, CEO, Cancer Society of New Zealand. “Thanks to the generosity of New Zealanders on Daffodil Day the Cancer Society can step up with practical and emotional support.” The Cancer Society offers accommodation close to all major hospitals in New Zealand for patients and their

carers if their treatment requires frequent hospital visits, but they do not live nearby. During 2017, the Society provided 49,000 bed nights and drove almost 4700 patients to and from their treatment, covering more than one million kilometres. Since the service began in 2007, the Cancer Society’s free information helpline (0800 CANCER) has had over 95,000 calls, and itsstaff of cancer nurses have spent over 4540 hours providing support and advice to New Zealanders affected by cancer in 2017. Yet, despite this commitment to providing needed support to people affected by cancer the Society receives no direct government funding. “When you put your money in the bucket on Daffodil Day, you might not be a researcher or scientist, but you are actively taking part in ground-breaking cancer research and supporting a person with cancer,” Mike says. “Our donors can be very proud of the impact they are having in their own communities. Thanks to their support the Cancer Society is in your local area every day helping educate people through health promotion programmes such as SunSmart schools and providing cancer prevention initiatives.” People can donate: To street collectors on Friday 31st August.

Four new trustees have been appointed to the board of the Karori Community Hall Trust, established to complete the construction, fit-out, and ongoing operation of the Karori Event Centre. In welcoming them, Trust chair Wallace Simmers spoke of the renewed energy and enthusiasm that they bring to the eleven-strong board. “Our next challenge is completing the fit-out. And the earlier it is opened, the better for everyone.” Over the next two to three months the Trust anticipates speaking with business people and donors to help with this, he says. New trustee Lee Wilson is reviewing the website and governance processes, Sharmini Sivanantham is managing

grant applications and exploring how the Karori Event Centre could be fitted out for eSports. Tony Roddan chairs the operations committee and is a Trust Board co-chair; Mark Greening chairs the marketing and fund raising committee and is also a Trust Board co-chair. Naming rights for meeting rooms, the auditorium, and the building can also be sponsored. The Karori pub, The Pick le Ja r, has already sponsored the k itchen facilities. Donations can be made online and are tax deductible. People wishing to make a donation or to sponsor one or more of the retractable seats, should visit the webpage at

Based in Churton Park, the women’s acappella group will perform the show at Khandallah’s Town Hall on Saturday 1 September. Choir spokesperson, Ma rga ret McLachlan, says the group will be joined by a men’s barbershop chorus, Harbour Capital Chorus, as well as two of their own quartets and a mixed quartet called Sibling Harmony. “We’ve also created a ukulele group for some audience sing-alongs,” she says. The show will cover moody hues, colourful characters and a world tour, sung in barbershop style. Many songs have a colour reference,

such as True Colours (Cyndi Lauper), Colours of the Wind (from the movie Pocahontas) and Wonderful World (sung by Louis Armstrong). “We’ve put the show together ourselves - we usually do one every three years, when we’re not competing in national competitions, or singing at other community events which include the Churton Park Christmas concert,” Margret says. The group will put on two shows on Saturday 1st September, a matinee at 3pm and an evening show at 7.30pm. For more information and tickets email: capitalharmonyemail@gmail. com or phone/text 027 247-8047.

Your Surname Dame Ann Hercus, who gave an interesting, informative and entertaining talk on the surname Hercus, was the guest speaker at a recent meeting of The Kilbirnie Genealogy Branch. Dame Ann gave an interesting, informative and entertaining talk on the surname Hercus which she and husband John have studied in detail. They found six main optional spellings and moving back to 800 years ago, 101 variations. This sort of thing is what keeps genealogy aficionados searching their family histories along, of course, with tracing the family generations – the family tree. She told of research into the meaning of the Hercus surname in Edinburgh. Normal channels were not providing an answer, so they went

to the Medieval History department at Edinburgh University, where research staff took up the challenge. As with much family research, it was time to be patient and some weeks later the message came through with their answer. It was roughly “a boundary marking rock”. Kilbirnie branch has e a number of senior members who have the knowledge, or can help with similar research, for members wanting to set up a family tree or find out more of the history of their ancestors. This is usually done on a research day each month, separately from a guest presentation. Humour, and genealogy as a means of making new friends, were highlighted by Dame Ann who described

visiting a home on an estate in Scotland where the name Harcarse originated. They knocked on the front door. “Hello, my name is Ann Hercus”. The resident replied: ”Oh, hello. I know who you are. I’m Joce from Invercargill.” For most people, finding the names of generations beyond their parents and grandparents can be a lot of work, but also fun. Dame Anne focussed more on the history attached to our ancestors such as where they lived, the meaning of names, occupations, did they have a Coat of Arms? And the ultimate question, were there any ancestors with status? Indeed there was. The Hercus line was traced back to the Earl of Dunbar.

Kilbirnie Genealogy branch member Russell Marshall, former Cabinet minister and diplomat, introduced Dame Ann Hercus to a recent meeting. PHOTO supplied

EYE ON CRIME In Johnsonville a grey Ford Laser hatchback parked locked and secure overnight in Johnsonville Road was stolen. The vehicle was parked near the front entrance of a supermarket and contained a small quantity of alcohol and tobacco. An attempt was made to break into a flat in Phillip Street. Marks on all the external windows indicate that a jemmy had

been used but without success in gaining entry. An attempt was made to steal a vintage Porsche that was parked on a property in Chesterton Street. The man accused of the offence entered the property and attempted to tow the Porsche away but due to the condition of the vehicle the attempt was abandoned further down the street. By way of explanation for

his actions the culprit explained that he had seen the vehicle parked on the property for a month and thought that no one wanted it, so he decided to take it. In Newlands a silver 2010 Holden Colorado commercial utility vehicle parked locked and alarmed overnight in Bellringer Crescent was damaged. No entry into the vehicle was gained but

Final Spring Selling Season for Guide Biscuits Selling GirlGuide biscuits is the major fundraising activity of Girl Guides nationwide, and has been for the last 60 years. New Zealanders have another chance to purchase packets of the iconic Guide biscuits now on sale around the country for the final Spring selling season. A biscuit tin staple for over 60 selling seasons, GirlGuiding New Zealand announced earlier this year that it was now moving its focus from fundraising through biscuits to activities and efforts that inspire and empower young women. Following careful consideration and analysis, the GirlGuiding New Zealand Board decided to stop fundraising through the sale of Guide

biscuits by its membership. “This is our penultimate biscuit season and we hope the public will get behind our members and volunteers who are raising funds for the organisation,” GirlGuiding New Zealand Chief Executive Susan Coleman says. “As we move into 2019 we will continue to evolve to support our mission of enabling girls and young women to develop into confident, adventurous and empowered leaders in their communities. “Our volunteers look forward to spending more time delivering a high-quality programme. “We are reviewing our fund development and volunteer models to provide greater flexibility to those who want to support us.”

Guide biscuits are baked in New Zealand by Griffin’s Food Company and it has said that it will endeavour to support GirlGuiding New Zealand in the future. At the time of the announcement, Managing Director at The Griffin’s Food Company, Brett Henshaw said “It has been an honour and a privilege to have manufactured the iconic Guide Biscuits for more than 60 years, and we are proud to have been a partner in this important fundraising initiative.” The legendary biscuit will be available from a number of GirlGuiding units throughout New Zealand cities and towns until 12 October, as well as from the GirlGuiding biscuit website. They will be back for one last biscuit selling season in March 2019.

Newlands Men’s win 6-0 Lions to seek redemption against over Palmerston North second-tier Southland

North Wellington’s Ben Sigmund attacks the Palmerston North Marist goal during Saturday’s 6-0 win.

The Wellington Lions will be hoping for a reverse of last week’s outcome when they take on Southland at home tomorrow. The Lions lost their Mitre 10 Cup Premiership match 27-20 to defending champions Canterbury on Saturday. Following on from their first-up win over Otago, the Wellington Lions headed south confident they could make it two from two despite the challenge of beating Canterbury on their home ground. However, Canterbury showed how ruthless they can be at times as they seized on a number of opportunities they created to take a healthy 22-7 lead into the break. Things had looked promising for the Lions when Thomas Umaga-Jensen scored a nice try to give the visitors an early lead but Canterbury got into their work and managed to turn pressure into points. Ahead 15-7 with time almost up in the first half Canterbury opted to take

a lineout from a penalty infringement before they worked a set move to send halfback Mitchell Drummond over. The Lions started much better in the second half and were rewarded for that good work when James O’Reilly and Du’Plessis Kirifi scored to narrow the margin. But despite creating several good opportunities the Lions could not find the finishing touch to get themselves in front. There was no shortage of effort from the Lions but handling errors and turnover ball cost them at vital times. Despite the loss there were some really good performances from the Lions players, including lock James Blackwell who was prominent throughout the 80 minutes. The Lions play Southland at Westpac Stadium this Friday evening. Southland is one of four teams from the second-division Mitre 10 Championship that Wellington plays during the Premiership round robin.

Cheika’s clock is ticking

RIGHT: Callum Goodwin smashes home goal number five in his second touch of the game after coming on as a second half substitute.

Not even the team bus breaking down and arriving home just before midnight could dampen the enthusiasm of North Wellington FC players and supporters returning from Palmerston North on Saturday night. For the second time in a week the Newlands Men’s Premier team dished out six of the best in their 6-0 win over Palmerston North Marist in the play off for a spot in the 2019 Central Region Football League. Winning the home tie by the same margin the week before was special enough but to repeat the score line on the away and deciding leg was simply unbelievable. It took just under half an hour to unlock the Palmerston North defence when Kiernan Hughes-Mason got in a short range jab to put the visitors on the board. Just before and after the half time break

retiring first team centurion Kieran Cripps nabbed a brace and in the blink of an eye the lead was out to three goals. Powerful left foot volleys by Martin Packer and Callum Goodwin in the 48th and 63rd minutes made it 5-0 with Ryan Worrell setting up the sixth and final goal at the 82 minute mark to close off the score, the season and elevation to the Central League. The Newlands Women’s Division 1 side confirmed top spot and promotion to the Premier League without even playing their last game as other results went their way in midweek games. In a season that is unlikely to be repeated for North Wellington FC, the four top men’s sides and women’s top team will all be playing their football in higher leagues next year.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika is fortunate his country doesn’t boot out their top rugby coach like they do their prime ministers. With each passing game, the fact he took the Australian team to the World Cup final in 2015 seems more like a memory. Saturday’s 40-12 drubbing at Eden Park was just another pathetic Wallaby chapter. Cheika seems determined to paint his team as overwhelming underdogs, the black sheep of their sport - it’s not working. Historically, Aussie teams, even those overmatched and lacking stars, have always found a way to be a threat. Cheika’s coaches box often looks like a play-pen for a spoilt child who throws tantrums when things don’t go his way. The Wallabies have regressed badly since 2015. A fortnight ago they were physically spent after 45 minutes. This week was exactly the same. That’s on Cheika - having a fit squad is something he should be able to produce regardless of how good

the All Blacks are. His focus seems to be more on excuses rather than exercise. He seems more determined to bemoan refereeing decisions or take pot-shots at All Blacks coach Steve Hansen than take an objective, hardline look at the frailties of his squad. This isn’t the 1990s where the Wallabies had world-class players like John Eales, George Gregan, Stephen Larkham, Matt Burke and Chris Latham. There isn’t one All Black I’d swap for their opposing Wallaby counterpart. The Australians need to understand that not only is rugby an 80-minute game it’s also now a 23-man game. Playing 80 minutes requires an injection of highly skilled, fresh legs. The eight-man All Black bench has proven itself to crush the Wallabies time after time. The reality is, the All Blacks are ruthless on turnovers, are the best in the world at turning defence into attack and amassing long-range tries. Currently it’s not a compelling rivalry and Cheika doesn’t seem like the man capable of changing that.
