Vandals target theatre By Dan Whitfield

Wainuiomata Little Theatre is fighting for its future after vandals ransacked its storage facility, destroying costumes and props in the process. The incident comes after the theatre’s very successful season of the show, Phantom of the Opera. The theatre had been using the Wood Street storage facility for about seven years and director Barry Paterson says that the damage is just a pain. Continued on page 2. Barbara Wray has been making costumes for Wainuiomata Little Theatre productions for 30 years and, like director Barry Paterson, is unhappy at the recent vandalism. PHOTO: SUPPLIED

Storage facility trashed following successful season of shows Barry says though it was hard to determine the moneta r y va lue of what was damaged, it was the work of volunteers that was ruined. “With all our shows, we only make enough to do the next show. So anything out of the ordinary really sets us back,” Barry says. “We’re gutted, absolutely gutted,” he says. As a non-profit organisation Wainuiomata Little Theatre relies heavily on the generous support of its landlords and fi nancial supporters to continue to produce entertainment for the community, However, wit h ongoing vandalism, Barry suggests it might be hard to continue. He says the theatre will need to secure a new lock-up and storage facility, and that a commercial venue would be ideal. The vandalism was reported to police. Barry is also waiting to hear back as to the future of the site where the theatre’s shows are held. The theatre has had a fan-

to retain the space in conjunction with the development but if they had to pay market rent, they would struggle.

Small-town gap left by commercial banks needs to be filled Grey Power has called on the Government to direct Kiwibank and New Zealand Post to fill the gap left by commercial banks abandoning many small communities. Nationa l president Mac Welch says while the Government cannot require private enterprise banks to maintain unprofitable branches in remote communities, Kiwibank and post shops are Government

entities and believes they have at least a moral duty of service to the people who own them. Recently, ANZ pulled out of Wainuiomata, with other banks also leaving small communities around the country. Banks have said that closing the branches is a response to more people relying on their phone or computer to do banking and hinted that the end of bank branches was a

possibility in the near future. The closure of post shops and banking facilities in small communities is also one of many indications that cost cutting and the march of modern technology is leaving many elderly people without essential services, Welch says. “Many senior people don’t use internet banking or emails for communication and many don’t even have computers. The

bank and the local post office, or post shop, are the centre of many small communities. It is where people conduct most of their official business and local bankers and postmasters know what service means,” he says. He says the combined impact of these losses could be the death knell of many little communities dotted around the country.

Youth Inspire’s success recognised

Youth Inspire has been praised by the Minister of Social Development. Carmel Sepuloni met with Youth Inspire graduates and staff, as well as Hutt City Council representatives on Friday to talk about how successful the programme has been in recent years. Youth Inspire was set up four years ago as part of The Mayors Taskforce and is funded by the Todd Foundation, the Ministry

of Social Development and Hutt City Council. The programme partners with a number of businesses in and around the Hutt Valley that take on graduates. Chairman Matt Reid talked about the successes Youth Inspire has gained for the community, including getting 400 young people into employment and another 200 in training. Alison Black is proud of the way Youth Inspire provides a wrap around approach to supporting young people.

“It was an opportunity for the minister to hear real stories from people who have used our service and seen the results,” Alison says. Alison says it was great to hear talk about where they were and where they’ve managed to get to, and that the goal of Youth Inspire is to continue doing what they are doing because it is working. At the moment there are 22 young people from Wainuiomata going through Youth Inspire’s Licence to Work

programme. Another goal of the youth programme is to set up a driving school. Carmel was impressed by the “level of passion and commitment Youth Inspire gives to each young person to gain training and employment.” Labour MP Ginny Andersen adds that it is clear the success of the Youth Inspire team is the driven and passionate people like Alison and the staff who can get the best out of every young person they work with.

World Cafe opens Students and teachers want to know what the community thinks about the future of Wainuiomata High School. A World Café, an event structured around conversation and knowledge sharing, has been organised for September 20 from 1pm.

Everyone is welcome.

Foodbank needs community support The Lower Hutt Foodbank is calling for community support as the number of people needing emergency food parcels grows. The Foodbank’s annual Food Drive on Sunday, September 23 is crucial to stocking up supplies for the Christmas period and beyond when the need for emergency food parcels is high. The annual total of emergency food parcels given out by the Foodbank has risen by 19 per cent over the last year. Of the 2356 food parcels distributed during 2017/2018, 95 per cent has come from community and groups donating food.

Survey shows Lower Hutt is a great place to live An increasing number of Lower Hutt residents rate their city as a great place to live – that’s according to the results of the latest Quality of Life Survey. The survey is conducted by a collaboration of councils around New Zealand that examines how different urban areas fare when it comes to wellbeing of their residents. The 2018 survey measured the perceptions of more than 7000 residents in Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga, Wellington, Hutt City, Porirua, Christchurch and Dunedin, as well as the Greater Wellington area. Of those surveyed in Lower Hutt, 81 per cent rated the city is a great place to live, compared to 78 per cent two years ago; 89 per cent of respondents said the quality of life in Lower Hutt was good to extremely good, up from 82 per cent last time. Thirty four per cent of respondents said that Lower Hutt was a better place to

live than 12 months earlier, citing improved amenities as the main reason, just ahead of good recreational facilities. Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace says the results are extremely pleasing. “Five years ago this council started a programme of work to rejuvenate the city by building new community facilities and refurbishing some of the older ones. Residents have always been supportive of this work so we know it’s something they value,” Ray says. “We have new community hubs at Stokes Valley and Taita, a new Events Centre and refurbished Town Hall, and the new Ricoh Sports Centre about to open at Fraser Park. These are all great community facilities that help make Lower Hutt a great place to live,” he says. The survey also identified issues that worry people in Lower Hutt, which included traffic congestion, homelessness and a lack of suitable housing, as well as an increase in crime.

Foodbank needs community support The Lower Hutt Foodbank is calling for community support as the number of people needing emergency food parcels grows. The Foodbank’s annual Food Drive on Sunday, September 23 is crucial to stocking up supplies for the Christmas period and beyond when the need for emergency food parcels is high. The annual total of emergency food parcels (enough food to last a week) given out by the Foodbank has risen by 19 per cent over the

last year, with an increase in the number of families, homeless people and single men needing assistance. Of the 2356 food parcels distributed during 2017/2018, 95 per cent has come from community and groups donating food. “The Foodbank is so appreciative of the generosity of the Lower Hutt community,” says the organiser, Kevin Hessell. “With no regular public funding we are dependent on the community for the majority of our costs and

we will be depending on them again.” Kevin says the support and the work of our wonderful volunteers is critical allowing the Foodbank to help our community when times are tough. The Lower Hutt Foodbank has been helping the community with emergency food parcels since 1986 when Sir John KennedyGood, then the Mayor of Lower Hutt, saw a need to better serve the less privileged members of the community.

How the food drive works: Donation bags go out on September 18 Donations are left outside letterboxes on Sunday, September 23 before 12pm. Volunteers from the Lions and Rotary from the Hutt Valley and Eastbourne will be collecting the bags donated streets after 12pm on September 23. Bags are sorted at the Avalon Pavilion and Eastbourne Scout Hall and taken to the Foodbank in Dudley St.

readers have their say... Find out the WORD on the Street. Question: Why do you love living in Wainuiomata?

Quake-risk buildings brought up to spec All buildings in Lower Hutt with unreinforced masonry parapets and façades, deemed an earthquake risk to public safety, have been brought up to a safe standard. Owners of 25 buildings met the September 10 deadline to secure street-facing unreinforced masonry that would pose a serious risk of injury or death to the public in the event of an earthquake. Hutt City Council originally identified 72 buildings as potentially having unreinforced masonry, or URM. This number was reduced to 25 as more information on buildings came to light or as building owners quickly got on with the job of securing parapets and façades. Council’s building and quality assurance manager Derek Kerite says the building owners should be commended for getting the work done by the September deadline. “Taking into account challenges like the availability of engineers and trades and the costs and complexity of this kind of work, building owners did well to meet the deadline,” Derek says.

“The overriding aim of this project is to protect life and limb, so it’s important to have this work completed, given the significant safety risk from unsecured parapets and façades,” he says. In the 2011 Christchurch earthquake, 39 people were killed and 110 injured by collapsing unreinforced concrete block, stone

or brickwork. In the wake of the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake, and following advice from GNS Science, the government amended the Building Act and Resource Management Act requiring owners in Lower Hutt, Wellington and other areas to secure any URM on their buildings. The original 12-month deadline was extended in March this year for another six months for building owners who had made reasonable headway with the work. Any building owner who missed the new

deadline would miss out on government and council financial subsidies. Derek says Hutt City Council has taken a strict public safety first approach to earthquake-related safety, successfully prosecuting a quake-prone building owner earlier this year for failing to complete strengthening work. Had URM building owners failed to meet the deadline, council would have considered a range of options including applying to the court to secure the buildings itself and reclaiming any costs.

One-of-a-kind fundraiser at Riverside Kindergarten By Dan Whitfield

The children at Riverside Kindergarten have helped raise funds for a much needed regional service. Onesie Day was held on September 7 and celebrated the only free

ambulance service in the country, the Wellington Free Ambulance. All the children, and teachers came dressed in their onesies or pyjamas as part of the event, with funds raised going directly towards new ambulances, life-saving equipment, advanced

clinical training and research. The children loved seeing the teachers in their onesies and Eleanor Hoare, from Riverside Kindergarten, says everyone had a great time. More than $100 was raised from this event.

Helene Carbonatto, general manager of strategy, planning and outcomes at Hutt Valley DHB.

Hutt Valley DHB has published its draft Clinical Services Plan and the community are being encouraged to have their say. The plan looks at the changes required in the clinical model of care over the next five to 10 years in order to address rising demand and improve health outcomes. It sets the direction for more in-depth planning that will be required for any future facilities development at Hutt. The plan complements the DHB’s wellbeing plan, which focuses on children and the ways in which society, environment and lifestyles affect our health. Helene Carbonatto, general manager for strategy, planning and outcomes at Hutt Valley DHB, says while there has been engagement with clinicians and health providers over the last year in developing this plan, we’d like to provide an opportunity for the Hutt Valley community to see the results and provide any additional feedback or ideas. “We have no predetermined view on

what people will say, though we hope the key directions in the plan will be supported by communities,” Helene says. “In particular, the need for services closer to home, to focus more on planning health services within a community, and a stronger focus on the first 1000 days of life,” she says. Helene says once they’ve collated the feedback, and made any changes, the DHB will be in a position to seek board approval. “Once the Board has approved it, we can begin the 3-5 year implementation process,” she says. The draft plan has been developed through extensive engagement across the health system, involving clinicians, managers, community stakeholders, primary care clinicians and managers, nonGovernment organisations and consumers. More than 40 meetings and workshops were held over a period of nine months to finalise it.

One-on-one with Football Fern By Dan Whitfield

A group of Wainuiomata High School’s youngest football players have joined with a Football Fern for one-on-one training. Sarah Gregorius ran several workshops for the girls as part of her role as Capital Football’s Development Officer. The Lower Hutt footballer was a member of the New Zealand side at the 2006 FIFA under 20 Women’s World Championship. She made her senior Football Ferns debut in 2010 and played all New Zealand’s matches at both the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany and 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada. She was part of New Zealand’s 2012 and 2016 Olympic team. Wainuiomata High School’s Sarah McIntyre says many of the girls in the team had not played football before this year and loved learning from an international player. “They really enjoyed it, and were really impressed by what they learnt. They also thought it was really cool to meet someone who had represented New Zealand internationally,” Sarah says. Sarah, the manager and coach of the team, says having Sarah there was really good for getting more girls involved in

Sports talk

with Jacob Page

Beauden’s boot finally costs All Blacks It’s time Beauden Barrett’s goal kicking came under the scrutiny it needs. For a long time, his general play around the field has got him through but in Saturday’s 36-34 loss to the Springboks it was a glaring problem. I grew up watching rugby with my Granddad and he always said you pick your captain first and then your goal kicker. This loss proved how important that simple formula can be in the outcome of games. Yes, the All Blacks gifted them two intercept tries but had Barrett kicked his goals to an All Black standard, New Zealand would have escaped. Barrett kicked just two of six conversions and at least two of them were makeable by a goal kicker worth his salt. To heap more misery on the Wellington playmaker, both he and Damian

Wainuiomata students showed off their tennis skills as part of a local primary school tournament recently. Wainuiomata Tennis Club held its eighth annual Wainuiomata primary schools’ tennis tournament on Wednesday, September 12, with four schools entering. Forty-eight students from Wainuiomata Primary, St Claudines, Pukeatua and Fernlea schools played hard throughout the day and the standard of play was great. The tennis club’s president Wendy Paulik says “the sportsmanship by all the children was awesome”. The winner of the tournament for the girls was Fanua Rimoni from Wainuiomata Primary School and the in boys competition it was Connor Keall from Fernlea School.

McKenzie were on the park and no one went for a drop goal in the last minute. Rugby has become a game of tries not goal kicks and drop goals but when a penalty goal or drop goal is enough to win a game, someone needs to have that skill and execute it under pressure similar to Saturday’s game. The All Blacks did enough to win the test match. Take nothing away from the Springboks who deservedly won the contest through taking their chances, producing relentless defensive pressure and rattling the usually unflappable men in black into poor mistakes. This has to be a wake-up call that points can’t go begging no matter how much of a genius Barrett is in general play. Credit to South Africa - an absorbing test match which the All Blacks, to a man, must learn from.
