Forest & Bird offers park funds By JIMMY NESS Forest and Bird is offering to help pay for important Tren- tham Memorial Park upgrades, which the Upper Hutt City Council has not completed. A 2006 council blueprint lists several upgrades as high pri- ority including the restoration of Barton's and Domain Bush, targeted irrigation and cre- ating an Upper Hutt regional garden. Council parks and reserves manager Brett Latimer says they supported the plan on the basis that the projects were only ideas. Further consideration would be given to each individ- ual project identified in the plan and [they would] be pres- ented to council in light of other council priorities. There was no commitment to fund any of the projects, but community funding would be used in the first instance.'' Forest and Bird can defi- nitely help with providing finance, Upper Hutt Forest and Bird chairperson Barry Wards says. We see ourselves as being in a great position for being able to apply for grant funding with that. We have got plants in our nursery that can be sourced.'' Dr Wards says land between the stopbank and the edge of Barton's Bush needs to be worked on. It needs to be planted to reduce the impact of wind penetration. It's pretty high risk because it is really difficult to get that area of the bush protected.'' The blueprint states that a number of threats to Barton's and Domain Bush exist. These include flooding, pests and weather damage. Dr Wards, who was consulted during the planning process, says there are also other changes which could be made. We would like to put an iconic native garden at the right hand side of the Barton's Bush entrance. It would reduce the cost of the council maintaining it because all they do is mow it at the moment. It would lend itself well to the modifications we have made to the stream.'' Mr Latimer says projects such as a perimeter path between Mawaihakona Stream and Domain Bush may be looked at soon. Fair go: From left, David Durham and Michael Gray encourage Rimutaka MP Chris Hipkins to sign Upper Hutt's fair trade petition. Fair trade petition pushed A new community group has launched a petition calling on Upper Hutt to become a Fair Trade city. Fair Trade Upper Hutt members say that gaining Fair Trade status shows Upper Hutt's commitments to human rights and decent living standards for all the world's citizens. Wellington city is already a Fair Trade city and the group wants Upper Hutt to follow. The Upper Hutt group is being driven by local enthusiasts Michael Gray, David Durham, Graeme Knowles and Stephen Loader. Mr Gray says he thinks it is a great idea because producers and growers in developing countries get paid fairly for their exports. It's helping people to help them- selves out of poverty. Some people do not give aid to organisations because they think their money goes on other things, Fair Trade funds always go straight to the producers.'' As a Fair Trade city, Upper Hutt will have Fair Trade products, such as tea, coffee, cotton and cocoa avail- able through a number of retail out- lets. Other organisations such as schools, church groups, and clubs will also be encouraged to use Fair Trade products. Rimutaka MP Chris Hipkins was the first to sign the petition. Upper Hutt is a very caring com- munity and I'm sure our local residents and businesses will be keen to get behind the Fair Trade philosophy. We're a very lucky country' in many ways, and I like to think we behave well when it comes to showing international leader- ship,'' he said. Fair Trade Fortnight is from May 7 to this Sunday, May 22, with events across the country celebrating and promoting Fair Trade. Mr Gray says they are trying to get as many people involved as poss- ible. The petition is available for signing at 216 Main St, or online at fairtradeupperhutt.org.nz
