Two more sleeps until the Khandallah Park Annual Summer Picnic which ORCA is coordinating.

It is being held this Saturday, 22 February from 11:00am - 1:30pm coinciding with the opening performance of Khandallah Arts Theatre's Play-in-the-Park that starts at 1:30pm. This year KAT is performing Mean Jean the Pirate Queen. We are encouraging all members of our community to bring their picnic basket and come along with their friends, kids and grand-kids and to let other members of the community know. See our attached flyer.

The theme of the day will be pirates fitting in with the play and there will be a pirate fancy dress parade, a treasure hunt and (fake) tattoos for would-be-young pirates. Pirates can also get their photo taken in front of the Pirate Photo Board. There will be free entry to Khandallah Pool, food stalls, old fashioned races such as the egg and spoon and activities such as bubble blowing. Live lunchtime entertainment will be provided by the Onslow College Music Department with two rock bands performing, Onslow ROck Band and Pandor's Box. Brock a talented young singer from Onslow will also be performing. Predator Free Khandallah will be there and showing their traps.

ORCA offered to coordinate the event last year, after the successful inaugural picnic that celebrated the centennial of the Park. We wanted to create a new tradition for our community. This year the event shows great community spirit with community groups such as Khandallah Presbyterian Church, Predator Free Khandallah, Khandallah Arts Theatre, Onslow College, Rotary Kauakau, Kaukau 100,Healthy Futures Trust, Cancer Society Sun Programme and ORCA members all involved. Our local politicians have also stepped up with Brett Hudson, our Pirate Master of Ceremonies and Greg O'Connor helping on the bubblemaking stall. Diane Calvert will also be helping staff the Information Table and we may get a visit from our new Mayor - Andy Foster!

Local businesses have also stepped up to support the event with Khandallah New World, Khandallah Trading Company, Mitre 10, Murray Potts from Harcourts and Mike Pero all providing support. We also have an artist painting the backdrop for the pirate photo board.

So we are now hoping for good weather as the picnic will be cancelled if it is not. Cancellations will be on ZB Radio and on our Facebook Page at www.facebook.com... and on our website - onslowcommunity.org.nz.

We encourage community members to come along and bring their kids and grand kids and help make this a tradition for our community.

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little more expensive than some, its nutrient density makes for smaller portions with more readily absorbable nutrients.

Get more bang for your dog’s bite with 50% OFF your first order with code NEIGHBOURLY.

This also means a decrease in what comes out the other end... less 'picking up' what they’re 'putting down' at the dog park if you catch our drift.

Celebrate cultural icon Carmen Rupe
Celebrate cultural icon Carmen Rupe in 1989 documentary ‘Carmen’. Learn the story of a vivacious performer, businesswoman, brothel keeper, LGBT rights and HIV/AIDS activist.

‘Carmen: the documentary’ profiles one of New Zealand’s most flamboyant and well know trans identities and advocates. In a candid open discussion with Carmen she walks and talks us through her early days living in Taumarunui through to her heydays in the entertainment industry.

‘Carmen: the documentary’ was produced and directed by Geoff Steven. Screening by kind permission of Geoff Steven.

Dynamic discussion

Following the film, there will be a dynamic discussion from a panel featuring Taupuruariki Brightwell, Peri and Karen Te Wao Richard Tankersley, and Tuiloma Lina Samu on gender diversity, sexuality and identity.

This event is hosted in partnership with Te Puna Mātauranga The National Library as part of Wellington’s Pride Week events.

About the panel
Panel Facilitator: Gareth Seymore grew up in Tokoroa. After school he studied in Tāmaki Makaurau and Kirikiriroa and now lives in Te Whanganui-a-Tara. In four years at Ngā Taonga he has worked in a variety of roles supporting the contract with Te Māngai Pāho, and now holds the role of Pouwhakahaere, Kaupapa Māori.

Karen & Peri Te Wao say you know you’re getting old when you appear in an iconic photo collage owned by Chrissy Witoko, displayed in her Evergreen Coffee Lounge in Vivian Street, Wellington. Like Carmen, Chrissy supported many people from all walks. She also enjoyed capturing history of the rainbow community in her way and displayed them proudly to anyone who entered her business premises. In a way, that is also what we are about. We are kind people who celebrate our communities (Tapatoru and Tātou), in our way.

Taupuruariki (Ariki) Brightwell (Rongowhakaata, Ngati Maru, Te Whanau a Ruataupare, Te Arawa, Tuwharetoa, Ngati Toa, Ngati Raukawa. Nga motu o Tahiti) is an Takatapui Indigenous artist of Maori, Rarotonga and Tahitian descent. She devotes herself to art and storytelling, revolving around her history and tipuna. She is the 27th generation of an unbroken line of artists.

Tuiloma Lina-Jodi Vaine Samu (she/ her) is a Samoan woman born in Aotearoa New Zealand. She was born, raised, educated and lived in Ōtahūhū and Mangere, South Auckland. She is the fifth child of 6 children of the late Tuiloma Molipopo Samu nee Iusitini of Sapunaoa, Falealili & Pu’apu’a Savai’I, Samoa and Leatufale Lila Samu of Salelesi and Faleula, Upolu Samoa. Formerly employed at Te Kāhui Tika Tangata, the NZ Human Rights Commission based in Auckland, she has now moved to Whanganui-ā-Tara to work at the Ministry for Pacific Peoples as Principal Advisor for its newly established Pacific Languages Revitalisation Unit (putting to use her doctoral research).

Richard Tankersleyis currently Principal Maori Advisor at the Royal NZ College of General Practitioners. From 2008 to 2017 he held the position of Human Rights Commissioner where his areas of experience were sexual orientation, gender identify and sex characteristics. For over 20 years Richard was the Diversity and Inclusion Consultant Facilitator at Matariki Services Ltd.
