Come along to the Wellington waterfront tomorrow night at 6pm for Ahi Kā - Matariki ki Pōneke 2019. The opening processions for this year’s Matariki celebration, Nga Wai Piāta (Streams of Light), and learn about the journey urban fish take.

“After hatching, we swim downstream and emerge in the harbour where we live for part of our life cycle. After about 3 to 5 months we begin our journey back to where we came from, which in some cases means overcoming stormwater pipes, concrete shoots and culverts. This task involves us using our strong pelvic fins to grip tight to things such as tree roots to make our way back upstream.” Banded Kōkupu.

Around the world, communities, schools, businesses, groups and people from all walks of life are taking big and small steps in solidarity with refugees. This World Refugee Day, we challenge everyone in New Zealand to join together and take a step to make a difference.

You can take part in the #StepWithRefugees campaign, where participants will collectively walk, run and cycle 1 billion miles - the distance refugees cover each year to reach safety, by adding your steps here: stepwithrefugees.org...

Another option is to volunteer with the New Zealand Red Cross as a Refugee Support Volunteer. Volunteers help families start again, while teaching them about New Zealand culture and connecting them with people from the community.

For anyone based in the Wairarapa, Masterton Neighbourhood Support has a programme called 'WeConnect' that matches new residents from diverse backgrounds including refugees to a local buddy. If you're interested in volunteering or supporting the programme in other ways you can email Masterton Neighbourhood Support Area Coordinator, Cathy Cameron, at: cathy@connectingcommunities.org.nz

All Sparks park users may want to look at the attached sub division plan.a

CDC is considering a sub division that uses some of this lovely park. Not only was the park gifted to the good folks of Carterton but it is also a part of the Carterton greenbelt!

Also seems like they may be considering rezoning the Belverdere Rd/Kent St/ Connollys Line area to urban, this way they can squeeze in an 41 extra rate paying properties

Anyone who knows the land they are talking about knows it is a bog and totally unsuitable for any type of housing development. It is also part of a flood zone according to CDC itself!

Goodness me CDC what are you thinking? C'mon folks, have your say and get on to our local representative and let them know what you think

Ahi Kā - Matariki ki Pōneke 2019

The Team from Wellington Water

We share our capital city with some surprising friends – native fish! Beneath our feet run a maze of drains and streams that our migratory native fish such as the Banded Kōkopu & Koaro have to overcome to reach open streams in the city’s hills.

We share our capital city with some surprising friends – native fish! Beneath our feet run a maze of drains and streams that our migratory native fish such as the Banded Kōkopu & Koaro have to overcome to reach open streams in the city’s hills.
Just because we put streams into pipes, doesn’t mean they don’t deserve mana.

It’s important that we’re conscious of what we pour into our stormwater pipes and gutters in our city as it negatively impacts the fish moving through them.

Come and meet the fish at Ahi Kā - Matariki ki Pōneke 2019

Poll: Do you ever eat food past its best before date?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

In the US last year, Mom's Organic Market founder and CEO Scott Nash did something many are afraid to do: He ate a cup of yoghurt months after its expiration date. And then tortillas a year past their expiration date.

In the US last year, Mom's Organic Market founder and CEO Scott Nash did something many are afraid to do: He ate a cup of yoghurt months after its expiration date. And then tortillas a year past their expiration date.

"I mean, I ate heavy cream I think 10 weeks past date," says Nash, "and then meat sometimes a good month past its date. It didn't smell bad. Rinse it off, good to go."

It was all part of his year-long experiment to test the limits on food that had passed its expiration date.
