line-height:150% !important; } } More than 100 taumai showed they counted when they voted at DCM during October’s election I count, I matter, I vote! It has been a very special month at DCM. Many of you have been following the journey our taumai have embarked on, enroling to vote, discussing the issues and practicing voting. The polling booth at DCM during election week capped months of activity designed to inform and motivate taumai to have their say. More than 100 taumai showed they counted when they voted at DCM, and many others voted in their own communities. And yes, for many of them, it was the very first time they had voted. We know you want to hear much more about how this has gone, more than we can share in this brief update. And so we invited DCM kaitautoko (supporter), Lee-Anne Duncan to spend some time with us during election week and to help us tell the story. Lee-Anne spoke with several taumai, and you will enjoy reading their reflections. Click here to read this story! And here we also introduce you to some more taumai who voted at DCM. Pete was the very first person to vote in the General Election at DCM’s polling booth. Pete has been supported by DCM for many years; he is now housed and our wonderful Sustaining Tenancies team work very closely with him. Pete had never voted before. Rochelle has begun doing some paid work at DCM this year, and this has made her think about the example she is setting to other taumai. “This was the first time I have voted, even though I’ve always encouraged my children to vote. I’ve been thinking about our taumai, and seen how easy voting has been for them. I wanted to take part, as they have been, to help set an example as a peer support worker. My kids said ‘Good on you mum’! It felt really, really good to vote, and have my voice heard.” Tony grew up in Iraq, and has faced many challenges in his life. English is also not his first language. Aileen from DCM’s Aro Mai Housing First team is Tony’s keyworker, supporting him to settle in to a home and to work through other issues so that he can thrive in all aspects of his life. Aileen was able to go in with Tony to support him to vote. Tony was very proud, keen to have his photo taken and happy for us to share his photo with you. Many of you know and love Te Amo and so you will understand how thrilled we were that he was able to vote here at DCM. Te Amo has voted before, but has sometimes found the experience difficult and frustrating. At DCM's polling booth, he was in a place he knows well and had the support of people he knows well, to ensure that his voice was heard. <!-- --> Celebrating with Seasonal Kai Voting week at DCM ended with a special celebration, and an acknowledgement of the courage of taumai who had voted for the first time ever, or for the first time in a long time. This day was chosen for kōanga seasonal kai, when the community comes together to share food and mark the change of season. This time the kai was provided by the Press Hall food court vendors. It was a very fitting way to lift up all of those who had voted, and all those who had supported them to do so. <!-- --> Foodbank appeal – can you help? DCM Christmas Foodbank Appeal Saturday 21 November 2020 Here at DCM, we are very reliant on the two large annual Foodbank Appeals to keep our shelves stocked. However this year, the winter appeal was unable to proceed, as it coincided with the COVID lock-down. This year’s Christmas Foodbank Appeal will therefore be even more important than ever. We need a large team of volunteers to play a variety of roles on Saturday 21 November – can you help in this way? Please get in touch by emailing matthew@dcm.org.nz We also encourage you to head down to New World at Chaffers, New World Metro on Willis Street, or New World Newtown on this day – and to encourage your friends and family to do the same. You can pick up a copy of our shopping list from one of the volunteers and select some items to purchase, for us to share with our taumai over the busy Christmas and summer period. <!-- --> Please help us get the message out there! Forward this email on to everyone you can think of who may be interested in how to respond to homelessness, and just generally people who are passionate about Wellington. <!-- --> Support DCM! Nāku te rourou, nāu te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi With your basket and my basket, the people will thrive <!-- --> Copyright © 2020 DCM. All rights reserved.

What a journey it has been! The process of creating the calendar started in March during Covid-19 Lockdown - not that we were bored! The idea came about as we felt that fundraising events were not going to happen for quite some time.  Quotes and samples from national printers were sourced, then onto the mammoth task of selecting photographs by committee approval.  So many great photos to choose from. We spent hours pouring over wonderful pieces of our community’s history. What a business!  We decided that our very own local Smith Print was the best designer and printer to use for the job.  What an amazing product they’ve delivered for us. The Wellington Libraries Recollect collection, and the Alexander Turnbull Library had wonderful photographs available - some at a small fee. Their librarians were very helpful. As was Russell Jenkins of the Wellington Tramway Museum.  What a wonderful Tram photograph they sourced for our cover page..  As Hataitai has a unique heritage, we have ensured that photos were included of the old Patent Slip, the Tram Tunnel and the Flying Boat, as well as a variety of others. You may not have known that there was a commercial Flying Boat service operating in Evans Bay from 1938 to 1954, where passengers boarded a small passenger terminal near Hataitai’s current changing rooms and flew to Sydney. The proceeds are going towards the Hataitai Community House. As with many small and nonprofit businesses, our income has been greatly impacted by Covid 19. If we achieve high sales we hope to also support the redevelopment of the Hataitai Centre (previously known as the Bowling Club)  We are now thrilled to be able to launch this wonderful calendar. It will make an excellent Christmas present for your family, at only $20 each, or 3 for $50. The calendar is sponsored by many local businesses and for that we are very grateful. We could not have done it without you. To order, please email hataitaievents@gmail.com, or you can pop into one of our stockists - Hataitai Pharmacy, Coolsville, Waitoa Social Club and the Hataitai Community House, at 112 Waipapa Road.  We will also be selling the calendar at our up and coming community markets.  Keep an eye on our Latest News for details.

    • September 2020 Residents’ Association meeting minutes
      • 6 Oct 2020
      • Pukerua Bay Residents Association
      • Tuesday, September 8, 2020Pukerua Bay RSA, 5-7 Wairaka Road Present: Paul FitzGerald (Chair), Nikky Winchester (Secretary), Iain MacLean, Kate Dreaver, Pauline Morum, Jonathan Harker, Margaret Blair, Mel Galletly, Bill Jackson, Nathan Waddle (PCC), Josh Trlin (PCC)Community: Glenda Robb, Whetu Bennett ( WREMO), Moira Lawler, Sara Thomson, Pat Hanley, Alan Clarke, Gillian CandlerApologies: June Penhey, Jenny Brash (GWRC)Approval of previous minutes: moved Iain MacLean, seconded Kate Dreaver, none opposed, carried. Penguin survey Glenda Robb from the Kapiti Coast Biodiversity Project explained that they have received funding to do surveys on little blue penguins in Pukerua Bay. September to December is their nesting time. They use two methods: on sandy beaches, they look for footprints in the sand early in the morning; or they use a specially-trained dog to sniff them out (this is particularly good on non-sandy beaches). Leaflets will be circulated along Ocean Parade, Beach Road and Hanui Road in the next week. There is also a trapping programme along the beach to remove predators such as rats and stoats. The hope is that a large enough population will be found that a programme can be put in place to protect them and ideally increase their numbers over time. The survey will take place in the next few weeks (weather dependent). There are groups elsewhere in the country doing similar work to protect their local korora populations. Gillian pointed out that the dog walking area on the beach is right by where there are penguin nests. Glenda suggested it may be worth lobbying PCC to make it a dog-free area, though it is difficult to get such a status. It was noted that there is still an ongoing problem of enforcement, which is not helped by the fact that there are no signs on the beach asking people to keep dogs on the leash. Action: Iain to contact Brent Tandy at DOC re signage.Action: Glenda to circulate link to a webcam in a nesting box in Paekakariki.Action: Committee to circulate flyers to other parts of the village in October with the AGM notices. Porirua City Council update Nathan explained that the District Plan was activated and is now available for people to feed back on by 20 November. PCC is approaching each Residents Association in the city to invite responses. Josh is on the Climate Change working group, which is looking at updating their terms of reference. The group currently has representatives from each of the GWRC councils plus Mana Whenua. Two big changes are being proposed: bringing in an accountability mechanism to ensure action and follow through; and providing capacity to have Mana Whenua representatives from all six iwi in the region. He noted that PCC is also starting to organise workshops for consultation on the Long Term Plan. Wellington Regional Emergency Management Office (WREMO) Whetu Bennett is the WREMO community resilience adviser in Porirua. He congratulated Pukerua Bay for our village’s response to the Covid-19 lockdown. Whetu focuses on high priority areas in the city (Whitby and Waitangirua) but is available to answer questions and provide support. He can run workshops on planning and preparing for emergencies, as well as earthquake drills. He helps PCC identify areas that they can assist with, and currently he is looking to find a location in Pukerua Bay for a new 25,000 litre water tank. There are already community water tanks at the school and the library. In case of a civil emergency, the local WREMO operations centre is in Elsdon. Emergency Assistance Centres provide support such as a nurse and social worker. However, it is likely to take at least eight days to get those set up. In the meantime, Pukerua Bay would need to be self-sufficient. Kate explained that there is a need to refresh the Civil Defence plan for the village. Whetu is happy to work with a local team to update it and also to help run a workshop to introduce residents to the updated plan. WebsiteAction: Kate/Iain/Paul/Jon to discuss edit requirements for Covid-19 page.Action: Paul to put a tshirt in the noticeboard to encourage sales.Action: Iain to talk to Archway Books about selling tote bags.

E-Waste Services have recently moved to 1 Prosser Street, 04 564 5464. They accept anything with a plug that is electronic. You can drop off or they will pick up. They also recycle polystyrene. Projects update Muri Platform building The updated lease is sitting in the Kiwirail office in Wellington Station and can’t be accessed until we move into Level 1 lockdown. The opening went well. However, some work is still required to fit the panels accurately. The event was led by representatives from Ngāti Toa who did a significant blessing of the community garden as well as the building. Thanks to Jane Comben for the design work and to Ted Coates for mowing and tidying up along the platform. The community garden group offered hot drinks and sausages, and there was also storytelling. Action: Margaret to provide appropriate details on the event to Jon for website. Village Plan review Kate met with Justine from PCC. While PCC are keen to help with our village planning review; however, with the pause on capital funding and the pause on the village planning programme, it may be difficult to get financial support from them. The Village Plan team need to write a brief explanation of the purpose of the village plan, and how we intend to engage with the community in an ongoing way over the coming decades. The hope is to still get some funding from PCC for the survey, but the timing for launching the survey will be delayed. Community centre Action: Iain to talk to the Diocese about their intentions for St Mark’s building. Annual General Meeting Date: Thursday 22 October, 7.30-9pm at the Community and School Hall.

Programme Glenda – penguin surveyGillian – litter surveyPlimmerton Farm developer?Friends of Taupo Swamp?Village Planning survey There was some discussion about whether to organise a supper. This depends on the Lockdown level at the time, so a decision will need to be made nearer to the date of the meeting. Proposed amendments to Rules There was some discussion about whether the RA should actively be advocating for local businesses. It was suggested that the Village Planning survey include a question, and that the Rules may be reconsidered after the survey has been completed. The other proposed changes were discussed. Action: Paul/Nikky to rewrite and present via email for approval by the Committee so the amendments can be circulated to the community at least 14 days before the AGM. Other business Action: Committee to read through the draft Committee handbook and discuss in more detail at the October meeting. Meeting ended: 9.54pmNext meeting: 13 October 2020 Appendix: Village Planning update from PCC He Are Pukerua The uncovering of the latest heritage panels last Saturday at the former Muri Station Southbound was a great time for celebrating and sharing the history of railways in Pukerua Bay. The research and writing the team has undertaken (especially Ashley and Margaret Blair) is an outstanding commitment to bring this heritage to the community. The final installation within the available remaining village planning budget for this project will be the wide format heritage station along Centennial Highway, celebrating the construction of the road. The structure is now in place and just needs the panels fixed to the frame later in the year. Ara Harakeke shared pathway extension After the success of widening the footpath from the shops to the overbridge, NZTA have asked if PCC could consider widening the section from Haunui Road to SH1 near Ted Coates’ house with 100% funding. PCC’s construction partner Mills & Albert are currently costing the proposal. When the costed proposal has been received, it has to be submitted to NZTA for their internal processes to evaluate and decide if it is a suitable project for funding. PCC will let us know when the costing is submitted. Community food forest It was great to see the renovations now underway again following the COVID 19 lockdown on the former northbound Muri Station building. Please keep all receipts for the materials, as they need to be submitted to Council before 31December for accounting purposes. Pukerua Bay community hub initiatives This project – which focuses on creating opportunities for community connections – has an operational budget allocation of $4,750 to support initial research and a local programme of activities. PCC are looking forward to working on this initiative in a way that aligns with broader village planning objectives.
