The Manawatū Standard's local columnist, Carly Thomas, has become a waste-free warrior. She lugs her keep-cups and tote bags everywhere she shops to reduce her impact on our ever increasing mountains of rubbish.

She's noticed supermarkets and stores are adapting to the needs of the waste-free warrior, making it easier to adapt to the lifestyle.

Yet again Bunnythorpe's community centre has been delayed because its $2.3m concept plans are seen as too grand for such a small community by potential funders.

Yet again Bunnythorpe's community centre has been delayed because its $2.3m concept plans are seen as too grand for such a small community by potential funders.

About 700 people live in Bunnythorpe, but it's also about 10kms from Palmerston North, Ashhurst and Feilding.

Is Bunnythorpe asking too much?

Can a recent high school graduate match - and beat - a seasoned politician for the people's vote?

Kia ora koutou, I am Wayne Guppy, mayor Upper Hutt City Council, and a member of the Whaitua Te Whanganui-a-Tara Committee tasked with making recommendations to Greater Wellington Regional Council on the future of our coastal and freshwater quality, and how our water is used.

Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water.

The importance of the environment, Hutt River and our waterways are important to me and critical to the well-being of current and future generations. We are looking forward to working with you to maintain and improve the quality of the water in our catchments. We need to fix our waste and stormwater infrastructure with population growth putting more pressure on our pipe networks. I need your help to find solutions that are equitable and fair.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page (www.facebook.com...), and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say (www.haveyoursay.gw.gov.nz...)

Why we're putting quality first...

Cooper's Pet Kitchen

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little … View more
Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little more expensive than some, its nutrient density makes for smaller portions with more readily absorbable nutrients.

Get more bang for your dog’s bite with 50% OFF your first order with code NEIGHBOURLY.

This also means a decrease in what comes out the other end... less 'picking up' what they’re 'putting down' at the dog park if you catch our drift.
