The possibility of these major health initiatives was considered, albeit briefly, by city councillors in their recent long-term planning. The council could lead the way in becoming a smokefree city,'' a submission from the Cancer Society's chief executive Michael Smith said. The first council in the country to make all its playgrounds and sports fields smokefree, Upper Hutt has already taken positive steps, Mr Smith said. However, he noted there were no smokefree initiatives in the council's 10-year long-term plan. This is particularly concerning considering other important pub- lic health issues are included, such as alcohol, gambling and crime prevention.'' The Government have set a goal to essentially become a smo- kefree country by 2025. With a strong community base, we see the Upper Hutt City Coun- cil as being able to lead the way towards this goal,'' Mr Smith said. Initially the councillors appeared captivated. Is it not possible we look at the CBD [central business district] going smokefree?'' Nick Thomas said, noting the 2025 target. Is that something we can do?'' We were the first with the parks, it's an on-going issue,'' mayor Wayne Guppy said, getting in behind Mr Smith. Dean Rabbitt said he would sup- port it but wondered how any pol- icy would actually work. Nellie Gillies said the the move would be all about self-policing'', with any council law or policy being a token gesture. Just as the idea appeared to be be igniting, deputy mayor Peter McCardle moved to stub it out. The central business district is battling enough already, he said. He believed it would not help to have any ban in place for the 10 per cent of people who still have the habit.'' But maybe in the future,'' Mr McCardle added, before the flick- ering idea was binned.

Foundation member Mary Fouhy cut the cake at an after- noon of celebrations, that included singing by the Happy Wanderers group, at Our Lady of Grace Church. The branch is older than the parish and dates from 1952. The branch has about 40 members led by president Chris Wasson and as well as providing friendship and support to members, it takes an active interest in social issues, especially those affecting famil- ies, women and children. The organisation is affiliated to the National Council of Women, the World Union of Catholic Women's Organis- ations, and the Pan Pacific and South East Asian Women's asso- ciations. Each year the New Zealand Catholic Women's League supports a national group active in the community with a Mission at Home appeal. Last year support went to ECPAT (Ending Child Prosti- tution and Child Trafficking). ECPAT Child Alert has an inter- national network of agencies in more than 70 countries. This year the support is going to KIDSCAN, an organisation helping disadvantaged children in New Zealand. Each league branch also supports a mission station in the Pacific, often helping with specific projects. Catholic women of all ages are welcome to join the league. The Heretaunga branch is mostly women from the parish but women from the Catholic parishes of Upper Hutt and Stokes Valley are also welcome. Contact the parish office 972 4282 for more information.
