MenzShed Wellington trustee Steve Jardine says he has seen first-hand what happens when retired people get involved in volunteer projects

"He's seen older, retired men doing nothing but 'waiting for the grim reaper to come to their door'. But he's also seen what happens when they meet join up and meet 'sheddies' - men that are already members.
Menzshed Wellington members forge social connections at the shed - something that will likely lead to better mental health. 'One of the other sheddies will take them under their wing, show them around.' And before you know it, they'd be perking up."

Fire and Emergency New Zealand has installed signage at the Wither Hills Farm Park entrances to let people know the best time to safely enjoy their walk, run or bike.

Although the park is at the lower end of the elevated fire danger thanks to cooler weather, a hot and windy day can quickly push things into the high risk category.

So if you’re heading up with Wither Hills make sure you heed “The Burning Day” signs and stick to the lower tracks on hot summer days.
