Ben Heather Reporter from Dominion Post

Wellington City Council is short on cash and mulling a parking fees hike. Options on the table include night parking charges or expanding the CBD area of high-price parking. Or they could always just increase rates. www.stuff.co.nz...

So, take some time out of your busy schedule to enjoy the second of the Rotary Martinborough Fairs for 2020 starting on Saturday, 7th March from 8am to 4:00pm. Stalls and activities for this event will take place in and around Martinborough Square. 😀

What does that mean for you?

Your Route 200 to Masterton will be diverted away from the area during the hours of 4am to 6:30pm so that you can enjoy the festivities as the square will be closed to traffic. Your journey to Masterton will now start from Stop #1800 Martinborough - Kitchener Street (near 11) instead of your usual Stop #1779 located at Martinborough Town Hall. Stop #8991 Jellicoe Street at Naples Street will also be closed.

For more information and to view the diversion map, visit the link below. Know before you go by subscribing to MyMetlink, downloading the Metlink Commuter App or calling 0800 801 700. #Knowbeforeyougo #Metlinkbuses

Leo's mum says he has always had a genuine love of and interest in people and has always found pleasure in helping anyone with anything. "He has always had an easy way about him and making connection with people in general.
Being a working parent there have been times when he has had to come along to classes I teach at Literacy Aotearoa and from very young he has had interest in my learners and what they are learning and taken opportunities to get involved when he can.
He started coming along to Digital Seniors with me in the same way, as a school holidays tag along on Wednesday mornings at the Masterton Library, but as with most situations he found ways to make himself useful by offering his help and connecting with everyone around him as they were waiting for help from one of our coaches.

People started asking where he was when holidays were over and he had to go back to school.

Leo was asked to volunteer at the Masonic village by one of the other coaches, Andre, who runs a group there and who had noticed that Leo was eager to lend a hand when he could. The group meets after school hours and extra hands are always welcome.

I am really proud of the skills he has learned at 13! Planning a learning session and taking in to consideration people's learning needs, making a presentation, answering on the spot questions and answering clearly. Thinking about the steps to a process and explaining them with patience and recognising the skills someone already has and the next steps to build on them.

He's always keen for some feedback and eager to try new things in his approach to be as helpful as he can be.

I'm very thankful for the Digital Seniors community, coaches and clients, for encouraging and valuing him and for their patience with his learning as well, they have helped him grow and develop so cool life skills!

Leo gets a genuine kick out of being able to explain something that might make someone's life and technology use a bit easier, and from learning about people and their lives and is eager to head off each week to lend a hand."
