6          Acknowledgements

 

            The Chair acknowledged Reverend Toeina Aotofaga II Tupulua Lemuelu

 

Rev Lemuelu passed away on Wednesday 8th September 2021 at age 78. Rev Lemuelu is one of the longest serving church Ministers of the Presbyterian Pacific Island Church (PIC) serving the Pacific community for more than 45 years.

In 1975 Rev Lemuelu became the first Presbyterian Minister for Invercargill PIC. A decade later, Rev Lemuelu moved to Christchurch. Rev Lemuelu later moved to Auckland and ministered at Otara PIC Church until 2018.

Rev Lemuelu was instrumental in the creation of South Seas Health Centre here in Otara and the Lotu Moui health project. Rev Lemuelu was recognised for his services to the Pacific Islands Community being awarded the Queen’s Service Medal in the 2010 New Year Honours List.

Rev Lemuelu is being remembered for his unwavering faith, humour, love and care for the Ministry and his congregation as well as his passion to serve the community.

 

Member Dr Ofa Dewes acknowledged:

In remembrance of John Houston McCoskrie, fondly known as Jack, who died peacefully on Thursday 9 September 2021, aged 93. Jack and his late wife, Jean, were faithful members of the Wesley Methodist Church, Kolmar Road, where my sons and I first met them when we settled in Papatoetoe in 1990. They were a very special couple to us. I share here a photo with Rev Misilei at morning tea after the church service, to celebrate Jack’s 90th birthday. Jack’s life-long service to community made a huge impact on many peoples’ lives. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at a later date. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family in their bereavement.

 

It was a privilege for me to stand in support of our frontline workers from the Fono and the Tongan Health Society at their recent Malu’i ma’a Tonga (MMT) vaccination drive in Favona, Mangere. 3,824 people aged 12 years and over were vaccinated during the 3-day event, well in excess of their target and I would like to commend everyone who helped to make the event a huge success.  Moreover, I’m delighted to learn that other pop-up vaccination centres will follow suit in an effort to reach our hard-to-reach population groups. All this work is made possible with the support of our Prime Minister and government, our Mayor Phil Goff and staff, and the services who are working so hard at this time to arrest and eliminate Covid-19 Delta. This virus knows no mercy. It has only one goal and that is to destroy. So, I commend the relentless efforts of everyone at all levels including our Pacific community leaders for their unwavering commitment to protecting us all, and destroying Delta in its own deadly tracks. Stay strong! Kia kaha!


 

 

Member Lotu Fuli acknowledged Tupou Neiufi

A person holding a stuffed animal

Description automatically generated with medium confidenceThe Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board would like to acknowledge and congratulate local swimming sensation Tupou Neiufi.

Tupou Neiufi claimed New Zealand’s first Gold Medal in the 100m backstroke S8 category at the Tokyo Paralympics. 

Neiufi won silver in the event at Rio Paralympics in 2016 and also silver at the world champs in London two years ago.

The South Auckland teenager, who left school last year to focus fully on swimming, stood on the podium visibly holding back tears of happiness, her emotion infectious.

You could see what representing her country meant to Neiufi - and how her work ethic, dedication and courage have helped her to overcome her disability and her disappointments.

Neiufi has hemiplegia – paralysis on one side of her body - and a traumatic brain injury, after being hit by a speeding car when she was two years old.

Her left side is weaker and smaller than her right, and to complicate things further, her brain injury means that she tires quickly.

She says her disability adds another level of complication – she has to make sure she’s working hard enough to improve, but not so hard that she burns out. Her training has to be meticulously planned to get the best performance.

Back in Auckland now, the 20 year-old, who grew up in Māngere East with Tongan parents and six younger siblings, plans to return to studies after swimming but for now, Neiufi is simply happy to have given her family, community, and culture something to be proud of. “The support from the [Pacific] community and South Auckland was so overwhelming, there were so many posts,” she says of the reaction to her win. “You know there’s Valerie Adams, there’s so many other athletes that grew up in South Auckland and I just felt so honoured and happy to be able to help them shine light on our area and give our kids in South Auckland… I just hope that we were able to help them know that you’re able to achieve any goal and dream as long as you put your mind to it.”

The South Auckland part is important. After her win, which came in the midst of a delta outbreak heavily affecting communities in South Auckland, many fans asked why Neiufi wasn’t being identified as a swimmer from South Auckland in all the positive news stories. “Growing up, when we’ve had bad stuff happen in our area it is always classed as South Auckland and then when good things happen it’s known as just Auckland or New Zealand,” she says. “For me, it would be nice if they’d include South Auckland, especially since South Auckland’s been having it pretty hard with the Pacific community over the last couple of weeks. I would like to have South Auckland there because it gives our little area a little light to shine.”

While she’s been ordered to rest, Neiufi is already looking ahead to the 2022 Commonwealth Games and the 2024 Olympics. She plans to head straight back to the pool and the gym, and home to South Auckland.

Tupou Neiufi has been a regular at Counties-Manukau Sports Awards and now she is a Paralympic Gold Medalist proudly representing South Auckland on the world stage.

Malo aupito – ofa atu Tupou!!

Deputy Chair Trenberth acknowledged:

 

Jack  (John Houston) McCoskrie who passed away on Thursday 9th September.   He is a longtime resident on Papatoetoe.  He featured in the Manukau courier a couple of years ago along with his wife Jean when they celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.  Jack was a committed member of the Papatoetoe West Rotary club.  He was also a member of the Papatoetoe tennis club along with Jean.  He also served as a governor on the Southern secondary schools board.  He was an active and committed member of Wesley Methodist church and used his skills as an accountant to serve the church at many levels including supporting the Girls Brigade He will be sadly missed.

MOVED by Chairperson R Autagavaia, seconded by Deputy Chairperson D Trenberth:  

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

b)        note that while a large amount of community consultation took place, there were no in-person events in the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board area

c)         support some of the key comments from participants including universal design, safety, better quality footpaths, affordable housing, information provided in a variety of languages, activities, events, groups that are diverse, and that this will require collective action from Auckland Council, Council-Controlled Organisations, external organisations, and central government

d)        support the work to gain accreditation for Auckland to be part of the World Health Organisation’s “Global Network for Age-friendly Cities and Communities”

e)         note that the draft cross-sector Action plan is expected to deliver over 80 actions to improve the age-friendliness of Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland

f)          further request that pilot initiatives and innovative projects be prioritised for the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board area; an area with diverse cultures and the fact that the population of over 65 is expected grow to 13 percent in two decades

g)      ask officers to ensure that the monitoring and evaluation framework is underpinned by measures and indicators drawn from the local level, the Local Board Plans and work programmes for measuring the progress on the Age Friendly Auckland Action Plan.  Combining high-level measures of wellbeing with assessment of progress on the ground would likely give a realistic track on progress and achievement of targets. The monitoring and evaluation framework would gain value from ensuring that progress is measured against local aspirations and objectives.

That the Ōtara-Papatoetoe Local Board:

a)      receive the public feedback on the proposal to amend Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau Te Ture-ā-rohe Tiaki Kararehe 2015 / Auckland Council Animal Management Bylaw 2015 and associated controls in this agenda report

b)        note only three respondents gave feedback from the local area

c)         in principle support “Proposal 1” - Require an approval to keep more than two standard beehives on urban premises with a land area of less than 2000 square metres (no approval currently required) and further request that the bylaw include the requirement to monitor the approvals, especially to manage and reduce associated risks when there are many hives within built-up areas, including in Otara-Papatoetoe. That is, the assessment of request to keep more than two standard beehives on urban premises must be based on the wider built area zone and not in relation to a single premise

d)        are of the view that with growth and urban intensification there is a need to put in practice clear guidelines and also monitor compliance. Putting in place assessments on case-by-case for requests for more than two hives is preferred as it will ensure that bees/ hives are cared for and also address any associated concerns in residential neighbourhoods

e)         support “Proposal 2” -  Incorporate rules from another bylaw about the feeding of animals on private property and “Proposal 3” - Update the definitions, structure, format and wording of the Bylaw and controls, noting that these serve to better regulate the keeping of animals
