Anwyl Specialist Medical Centre in Mana has over a decade's experience in narrow band UVB phototherapy for generalised skin conditions like psoriasis, and remain the only private facility in the Wellington region offering this service. With the recent purchase of brand new phototherapy equipment from America, they became one of three New Zealand clinics to offer targeted phototherapy for localised stubborn psoriasis. Because the light is targeted specifically at abnormal skin, much higher doses can be used than in conventional whole-body phototherapy, with faster healing and less side effects.Anwyl now also offers blue/red light therapy for mild to moderate acne. Eight treatments over four weeks results in marked improvement in the majority of patients, and this may last up to 6 months. This is a valuable treatment option for those who wish to avoid the potential side effects of antibiotic, hormone or retinoid tablets.

Members of the Safer Porirua Strategic Group, made up of govern- ment and non-government agencies with an interest or role in working towards creating a safe community in Porirua, will sign the charter in the council chamber. These groups are: Porirua City Council, ACC, Capital & Coast Dis- trict Health Board, Housing New Zealand, Kapiti Mana Police, Porirua Chamber of Commerce, Porirua Healthy Safer City Trust, Porirua Fire Service, Regional Public Health and Water Safety New Zealand. Mayor Nick Leggett says the char- ter will ensure the parties achieve and maintain Safe Community accreditation status as designated by the International Safer Com- munities Foundation New Zealand on behalf of the World Health Organisation. Porirua achieved this designation because groups and organisations in our city work together well and, in this case, to provide sustainable safety programmes for our residents. These programmes target high- risk groups and environments and their outcomes are monitored so that any challenges are resolved in a collaborative way. This designation was achieved in September 2008 and re-accredit- ation occurs every five years, with the next due in 2013. Council chief executive Gary Simpson says the charter records the commitment from the parties. Pauatahanui is 'feeling the love' By KAROLINE TUCKEY Welcome walk: Pauatahanui Wildlife Reserve is increasingly being used for recreation not rubbish dumping. A long-standing volunteer says the area is flourishing since being adopted by conscientious users. Pauatahanui Inlet is getting a lot more love from the community than it used to, a long-standing restoration volunteer is happy to report. Increased public use of Pauatahanui Wildlife Reserve has had the encouraging up side of a noticeable decrease in dumped rubbish and vandalism, Forest and Bird volunteer Wanda Tate says. Mrs Tate, who has been on the reserve s committee for 17 years, says it is pleasing to now see the reserve flourishing as it is adopted by the public, after so much volun- teer work at the once-badly polluted wetland. The estuary reserve covers about 50 hectares of saltmarsh at the eastern end of the Pauatahanui Inlet, and is home to local and migratory birds like god- wits, royal spoonbills and paradise shelduck. Increasing local interest in the attractiveness of the facilities means we get people who are behaving responsibly when they are visiting the reserve . . . so we are not getting so much senseless damage to the facilities that are there, and not so much rubbish. She suspects the essential change is not in the numbers of people visiting, but the reasons people visit. An increase in the amount of people enjoying the res- erve has driven away those visiting the secluded area for ulterior motives. Since 1984 volunteers have worked to redevelop and replant the reserve from a gorse, blackberry and rubbish covered wasteland, having to contend with regular spates of graffiti and rub- bish dumping at the reserve as well, she says. Break-ins to sheds and damage to facilities such as signs and tool sheds at the reserve have also been a frustrating ongoing prob- lem. It goes [in] fits and starts and there are two levels of problems; a background of the fact that access to the area is completely open, and we go through patches where people abuse the freedom of access by leaving behind rubbish by dumping household or personal rubbish around the car parks. One year we had an absolute rash of people sticking used nappies into bushes. But now the reserve is known for its scenic and gentle pathways and is especially popular with the elderly and parents bringing chil- dren.
