Elizabeth Coluzzi, Sue Abraham and Trish McBride receive the supreme award at the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards. Award winners -- again Mana Recovery has done it again, scooping the top award at the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards. The organisation, based at Porirua s Spicer Landfill, provides social networking and employment help for people with mental health needs, educates the community on sustainability and runs a very successful recycling centre in Trash Palace. Last year more than 700 tonnes of material were diverted from the landfill, and that amount is expected to double for 2011. Mana Recovery recently took on the task of disman- tling and recycling parts from televisions and computer monitors in partnership with an e-waste company. Mana Recovery s general manager Eliza- beth Coluzzi said they were absolutely delighted to be recognised again for the work they are doing. Running since 2000, the airport awards begin at the local level, with the five councils from the greater Wellington region recognis- ing volunteer organisations in categories of heritage and environment, health and wellbeing, arts and culture, sport and leisure, education and youth development. Wellington Airport acting chief executive John Howarth said it was great to highlight individuals, particularly volunteers, and organisations that are both serving and inspir- ing their community. Mana Recovery will now represent the region at the national community awards in Ashburton in March next year. The other finalists for the Wellington region supreme award were: Kapiti Community Enterprise Trust, Wellington 2011 Inc, Pomare Community House and Wellington Speedway Society. 'Publicity stunt' or innovation? By KAROLINE TUCKEY An experimental initiative to inspire communities to develop their own projects is being tested in eastern Porirua, but much of it remains a mystery. Five communities from throughout the country have been selected as test cases for the Community-Led Development Initiative, which is fronted by Minister of the Community and Voluntary Sector Tariana Turia and has been set into motion by the Department of Internal Affairs. The communities will share $1.9 million a year through the Community Organisation Grants Scheme, and it is still to be decided how this funding will be split. DIA spokesperson Jo Watt says what the project is actually about will be determined by the communities themselves. We don t yet exactly know what it will mean. It s about inspiring communities, and the community will co-ordinate it. The whole process, including the method for appointment of a leadership group, is yet to be established by the community, she says. The DIA has no expectations or cri- teria except that the group must have community buy-in , and there will be no assessment of this, she says. Community meetings to raise interest in the project were advertised by visits to groups, fliers posted in letterboxes, advertisements in Kapi-Mana News, and invitations sent to community leaders. Three meetings were held in Sept- ember and October, and as a result those who wish to participate are to form a leadership group which will then take over the project and set up a body that can legally receive the funding. Once the meetings were advertised the DIA stepped back from decision-making and involvement, Ms Watt says. The DIA is so hands-off that it is not currently aware what is happening with the Porirua project, who is involved or how to contact them, she says. A review of the project will be carried out in December next year -- its success in each community measured against that community s own goals, Ms Watt says. Porirua City eastern ward councillor and Streets Ahead 237 youth pro- gramme chief executive Wayne Poutoa says he went to one of the community meetings, and is unsure of its progress. He is still forming a view on the project s merits. They ve had a series of meetings, that s about as far as it s got, I m in two minds about whether it s a publicity stunt for the election. Those at the meeting had been the people that head agencies, the same old, same old , he says. The scheme could work, but only if the organisations and leaders consulted fairly with people at the grass roots of the community, otherwise you are going to get the same people that are going to manipulate it to their own goals, he says. The amount of funding to be provided by the DIA will only just about fund a secretary , and there are many organis- ations already doing important works for the community in Porirua East, he says.
