Would free Sunday parking make you visit the CBD more?

Paid parking on weekends looks set to stay. Wellington Mayor Andy Foster campaigned on restoring free central city parking on Sundays, and included it in his "first 150 days" plan.

Wellington Mayor Andy Foster campaigned on restoring free central city parking on Sundays, and included it in his "first 150 days" plan. But as the council seeks public engagement on a review of parking policies, Foster admitted he didn't have the votes to pass free Sunday parking. Would free parking make you visit the CBD more?

I used to be at Smiles in Waikanae, but their nice, friendly, warm, fuzzy and patient dentist shipped off back to the UK. (Which I find somewhat ironic, given that all my dentists as a kid growing up in the UK were South Africans or Kiwis).

Lace up for summer fun

The Team from Resene ColorShop Kapiti

Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

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...)

THE LIONS CLUB OF KAPITI – Used Spectacles
Lions New Zealand identified a need for spectacles to aid people in the Pacific Islands.
As a result The Lions Club of Kapiti has a spectacle recycling project and they are continually looking for used glasses that can be used in this project.
Do you have any old glasses that you wish to pass on?
Useful items are passed on to Volunteer Ophthalmologist Services Overseas (VOSO) for distribution to those with poor eyesight in the Pacific Islands.
They are then sorted, checked for cracks and scratches before being washed in an ultrasonic washer and dried. They then have their prescription recorded and are packed for delivery.
VOSO consists of teams of eye surgeons, optometrists and eye care workers who visit the isolated communities and bring enhancement to the lives of hundreds of people annually.
If you have any old glasses that you would like to donate to this cause please contact andthel@outlook.com
