Hataitai's popular fish and
chip shop Supremo Takeouts is
likely to be open for business
again in July or August.
The Moxham Ave shop was
gutted by a fire in February
2011. The cause of the fire is
thought to be accidental.
Supremo owner Jenny Liu
said she felt a little pressure
reopening Supremo after the
business had been closed for so
She said there had been
many financial obstacles to
Mrs Liu had only contents
insurance, and said while she
did not have the exact figure,
she had paid at least three
times the amount her
insurance company had given
However, she said the
encouraging comments on the
internet from loyal customers
meant she was enthusiastic
about the rebuild.
I have been looking forward
to the reopening, it has been a
long time,'' she said.
Mrs Liu said it would be
great to have a new shop, but
the fish and chips would be the
same quality Supremo fare.
Builder Phil Wilson said he
had easily 10 people asking
what was happening on the
They're pretty happy when
we tell them it's a fish and chip
shop,'' he said.
Architect Stephen Geuze, of
Vorstermans Architects, said
that the company had devel-
oped a contemporary look for
the new Supremo.
It will be a modern piece of
architecture, but will still com-
plement the historic nature of
the suburb,'' he said.
Hataitai Village was part of
a heritage zone, which made it
complex for reinstatement,
meaning close consultation
with Wellington City Council,
Mr Geuze said.
Hataitai resident Jeni
Fearnley said Supremo was
missed in Hataitai.
It's always busy. Every
night there's a big queue,'' she
Another local, Emma Harri-
son, said Supremo's return was
well overdue. The only other
decent fish and chip shop is all
the way up Hataitai Rd,'' she
The fire was not the first in
the shop. In 1971 another
damaged the building.

Victoria University's Wai-te-ata
Press turned 50 last Thursday.
The letterpress publisher and
printer celebrated the anniversary
with a lecture and reception.
The press was started in 1962 by
university English professor Don
It has printed and published the
work of many well-known New Zea-
landers, including Bill Manhire,
Alistair Te Ariki Campbell and
James K Baxter.
Those we think of as the godfath-
ers of New Zealand literature, at one
time or another were printed at
Wai-te-ata Press,'' director Sydney
Today the press is involved in
teaching, publishing and research.
Ms Shep said one of the press's
aims was to design and package dis-
tinctive books so that they would not
resemble any other.
We want to create something
that stands out from the crowd,'' she
Ms Shep said that once people
found out about the press they came
It's a hard place to turn people
away from because it looks wonder-
An attraction was being able to
touch the type and products in a
way that digital did not allow.
One of the joys of working in here
is that you start with an idea and
you have the opportunity to see it all
the way through,'' she said.
Workshops are available for
students and the public through the
Centre of Lifelong Learning.
Wai-te-ata is home to a 1813
Stanhope press, one of only 16 in the

in New Zealand. It has 15 other
