Mayor's safety funding flip-flop

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

After promising to support increased funding for a Courtenay Place safety initiative, Wellington Mayor Andy Foster did a U-turn when costs went up by $15,000.

After promising to support increased funding for a Courtenay Place safety initiative, Wellington Mayor Andy Foster did a U-turn when costs went up by $15,000.

The funding was for Take 10, a group that helps drunk people stay out of trouble.

On Sunday, Foster told Stuff he supported providing funding. On Wednesday, however, he voted against it.

He said the proposed cost had risen by $15,000 to $95,000 and he was no longer prepared to support it.

His no vote was not enough to stop the funding, which the majority of councillors supported.

Councillor Fleur Fitzsimons, who chaired the grants committee, voted in favour of the increased funding.

“The extension of Take 10 to Friday nights is one step towards reducing alcohol-related harm and violence on Courtenay Place,” she said.

Mena is a super dog hero.

Certified by the Department of Conservation to work as a conservation dog, she has done her bit to keep kororā (little blue penguins) safe on Cobham Drive.

Wellington City Council engineer Veronica Byrne sees careful penguin management as a top priority for the Cobham Drive project, which is transforming this previously neglected area into a much more appealing place for people to walk, run, bike, scoot and spend time.

Every morning before work begins, workers checks for kororā which could have taken refuge over night.

They check under and around vehicles, and in the areas where rock is going to be moved from and to – using a torch when necessary, and a special camera to help them see into the crevices between rocks.

Mena has also played a key role. A New Zealand-born Hungarian Vizsla, she is specially trained to find places where penguins may be present, or have been regularly frequenting.

The detection experts from Kaikoura Ocean Research Institute (KORI) have carried out three searches so far, checking vegetation and rocks along the foreshore and mapping spots where special care needs to be taken.

Penguins tend to avoid the construction zone, but if one is spotted, which has happened on a few occasions, work in the immediate vicinity stops, and the team seek advice expert advice on the best course of action.

A saucy rebrand brings te reo Māori to Kiwi fridges and dinner tables

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Hi neighbours,

Are you looking for a new pantry staple? A Canterbury restaurateur has launched his own te reo Māori-branded tomato sauce after boycotting another for “bastardising” the language.

Fush owner Anton Matthews has teamed up with Barkers to produce Kīnaki Tomato after removing Watties from his Christchurch restaurant because the company poked fun at Māori place names in an advertising campaign.

Matthews, who has become well-known for championing the country’s indigenous language, is proud to have te reo Māori on sauces displayed on his tables.

When he went in search of a new sauce to accompany his kaimoana (fish) and chips in January, they picked a sauce they loved, and asked the Geraldine-based condiment producer if it could collaborate on a label.

“I’m really stoked that they’ve taken a chance on us.”

Earlier this month the Upper Hutt City Counci voted to extend its existing ban on smoking in public.

The ban covers all parks, reserves and sports grounds, as well as bus stations and bus stops.

Mayor Wayne Guppy said the Council wanted the city’s public spaces to be healthy environments for its children and young people to play in and enjoy.

A number of councils in the region have similar bans. Is it time to become totally smokefree and ban smoking in all public areas?

A cake store may not seem like the obvious candidate to offer handmade face masks, but a collaboration between a Wellington crafter and a Petone cake store has taken off.

Jhan Lindsay began the project when she used some leftover materials for a mask for her partner to wear when working in the close confines of a construction job.

One week and more than a hundred masks later, the Wellington musician, composer and teacher is struggling to keep up with demand.

The Ministry of Social Development had stopped using three Petone motels after their clients were found living in substandard conditions.

MSD regional commissioner Gagau Annandale-Stone said the Midway Pacifica Lodge, along with the Du Pont Motel and Settlers Motor Lodge, were inspected following complaints. The three motels are all located along Hutt Rd and operate under a shared management team. “We found several issues of concern about the standard of accommodation provided, and repair work to be done.”

Annandale-Stone said the ministry expected clients in emergency housing to receive the same level of service as regular motel guests.
