Quick thinking over fire

earns Maddy recognition

• By Matt Slaughter

MADDY Flattery-Donohoe’s

actions potentially saved her

neighbours from a house fire in

October.

Last week, emergency service

staff visited the 10-year-old

Ngutuawa School [formerly

Bamford School] pupil from

Aranui in front of the whole

school to praise her efforts, which

helped the family of

four and their dog get out

unharmed.

Maddy woke to the smell

of smoke at about 1am on October

16. She saw her neighbours’ deck

was on fire and woke up her mum

Kim Arnold to tell her.

Maddy and Kim went next

door and alerted the family, who

got out of the house without

injury.

The fire service was called and

Kim was able to bring the fire

under control with a garden hose

before they arrived.

Maddy said the emergency

service staff who visited last week,

including fire investigator Wayne

Hamilton, said her quick thinking

may have saved her neighbours’

lives.

Joint partners will manage community centre

Current users

in facility

EASTERN Community Sport

and Recreation will manage

the Ascot Community Centre

in a partnership with the city

council.

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board has approved

the lease following a request

for an expression of interest in

community management of the

public facility on the corner of

Beach Rd and Ascot Ave.

A staff report to the board

recommends that ECSR

“manage, activate and promote”

the centre as a community

facility on behalf of the city

council for up to 20 years, with

an annual $1 rent for the first five

years.

Current centre users –

including the pétanque club –

will continue to use the space.

ECSR board member Simon

Hill said the centre is a “valuable

asset” for the local community.

“We want to maintain the

usage of current members,

support them to grow their

programmes, and expand the

reach of this centre into the

wider community,” he said.

“Eastern Sport is keen to hear

from any group, individual

or programme interested in

working with

us to extend

offerings.”

Community

board

chairman

Kelly Barber Kelly Barber

said the lease

decision highlights the city

council’s long-term commitment

to community partnerships and

ongoing recognition of local

expertise.

“Eastern Community Sport

and Recreation has stepped up to

manage the centre, underlining

the importance of getting the

community involved in using

this space,” he said.

“The group’s local connections

and ability to seek out other

opportunities for QEII Park and

the centre have all contributed to

the decision.

“A connected community

brings multiple benefits, and

with these stronger councilcommunity

partnerships we can

boost the use of these great local

assets.

“A positive contribution from

the local community ensures

more value for everybody.”

The Ascot Community Centre,

which includes a function room

and two smaller meeting rooms,

is integral to the approved

management plan for QEII Park.

The plan provides for the

removal of the fence and

vegetation between the park and

the community centre to open

up and integrate the spaces,

including several pétanque

terrains.

Established in 2000,

ECRS delivers community

programmes and services

focusing on sports, activating

spaces and engaging with clubs,

schools and local groups to

benefit the wider community.

Mother who inspired movement mourned

THE FOUNDER of the She Is

Not Your Rehab movement Matt

Brown’s mother has died.

The Aranui resident said

his mum, Aitofi Telesia Pouvi

Taimalelagi, inspired him to

create the movement to combat

family violence.

He said she has left this world

– but her mark will stay for a

long time to come.

“My dear mother was my first

protector, a survivor, a warrior

and a queen,” Brown said.

“She had a generous spirit and

a good sense of humour. Her

life was one of heartache and

struggle, yet she gave birth to

nine children and worked hard

to give us the very best she could

with what she had.”

Brown started the antiviolence

movement She Is Not

Your Rehab because of his

mother, who passed away last

Thursday, and the suffering he

had witnessed in his home.

He says the movement is

“founded on her story, her

sorrow, her survival and the way

I witnessed her for many, many

years become a rehabilitation

centre for the man she loved, all

because she wanted us kids to

have a family like she had grown

up with.”

Just last week, the family

described how she felt emotional

when Dwayne “The Rock”

Johnson singled her out in a

powerful message to the family

he posted online.

The Hollywood actor

sent a message to the

family, after Brown’s son

Angelou tagged Johnson

in a video asking him to

join them in spreading

the anti-violence

message of She Is Not

Your Rehab with men

around the world.

In his response,

Johnson singled out the

work the boy’s father

does with the She is Not Your

Dwayne

“The Rock”

Johnson

Rehab group, as well as the boy’s

nana. “I admire your father,

greatly for standing

up and creating @

sheisnotyourrehab. And

to make sure his mom –

your nana – will never

be forgotten.

“Encouraging men

all over the world to

treat our women with

respect, love and most

importantly, violencefree,”

the actor said.

“You stay strong,

Angelou and keep

listening to your nana and your

Matt Brown

INSPIRATION:

Angelou with his

late grandmother

Aitofi Telesia Pouvi

Taimalelagi.

dad. One day you will become

the leader of your aiga and also a

leader the world will admire.”

In the original video that the

five-year-old posted for “The

Rock”, the boy explained how

his dad started the anti-violence

movement in honour of his

grandmother, who had suffered

domestic abuse.

“Men all around New Zealand,

the Pacific, and even the whole

wide world because his mum, my

nana, had a sad life when they

were growing up with lots of

fights at home.

“It was sad for my dad to watch

her get hurt a lot. And she had

to go away lots to many refuges,”

the boy said.

“My dad says it’s his mission to

help other men to heal so their

wives don’t have sad lives like

nana did.”

In the video, Angelou revealed

his nana was unwell with lung

cancer.

He said his father will use

the She Is Not Your Rehab

movement to help tell her story

and promised her message will

never be forgotten.

Brown and his movement’s

ultimate goal is for “Aotearoa to

become violence-free”.

“I promised her before she left

this world that I would tell her

story to the world,” Brown said

as he prepared for her funeral

and the family coming to terms

with a life without her in it.

“Her story will be a source

of redemption for many and a

way to reclaim the narrative of

domestic violence that is still a

hidden pandemic and a source

of shame here in Aotearoa and

around the world.”

A survivor of many of

life’s toughest battles, Aitofi

Taimalelagi died after a battle

with lung cancer.

She leaves behind children,

grandchildren and a legacy that

will last for generations to come.

HEROIC: Ngutuawa School [formerly Bamford School] pupils were allowed to dress up in police uniforms when

police and fire investigator Wayne Hamilton celebrated Maddy Flattery-Donohoe’s effort in helping to save her

neighbours from a house fire.

Pupils impressed by Maddy’s efforts

• From page 1

Said Maddy: “They said they

[the neighbours] could have

died, and good job.”

She said pupils at the school

were impressed by her efforts.

Maddy said what she learnt

from her experience is an

important thing to do when

people see a house fire is:

“Wake up the adults and tell

them to get out of the house.”

Maddy received a certificate,

stickers, a drink bottle and

other items from Hamilton

to congratulate her. Kim also

gave her stickers.

Maddy and other pupils at

the school got the opportunity

to try on police uniforms

during the visit.

Kim said she was proud of

her daughter’s heroic actions

and if nothing had been done

their neighbours’ house and

their house, which is about 2m

away, could have burnt down.

“I was very proud of her.

If she didn’t wake up we

could have woken up to the

neighbours’ house being burnt

down, including our own.”

As we all know, having our car off the road

for panel repairs can be frustrating, but for

customers of Smart Repairs (NZ) Limited in

road as quickly as possible is our aim” says

Brian, who owns Smart Repairs with his

repairs, no job is too small. Their services

Customers can be assured of top-quality

workmanship at Smart Repairs, with Brian

courtesy car, so they can stay on the road

while their vehicle is in the workshop.

There is a free pick-up and delivery service

within Christchurch available on request.
