Kapiti Coast Help Businesses like yours during Covid 19

Sylvie-Patricia from Waikanae

I found this Message on the Group Page of one of my Network Referral groups and thought to post it here in the Notice Board, then i find it for General interest..
KEDA is a volunteer group of local people whose aim is to support local projects and promote economic development - see www.keda.nz... and kickstartkapiti.nz....
COVID-19 has taken a devastating toll on many of our businesses already, however the worst is possibly yet to come. While the focus to date has been on providing immediate financial assistance to businesses, the process of recovery is going to take many months. When the doors finally open, many businesses will be operating at well below capacity and profits will be elusive.
KEDA is supporting an initiative from one of our members who has set up an online support network for local businesses. The key focus of it is a directory where people, such as yourself, with specific expertise can offer help and local businesses can register as needing help. You are able to choose between offering your services free of charge or for a fee, or to provide an initial free consultation.

What does it cost you to list your profile?

Absolutely nothing.

What’s in it for you?

It’s an opportunity to build relationships with local businesses and to promote your business at no charge.

We are all in this together. If our business community as a whole is thriving, we will all thrive. We are only as strong as our weakest link.

I invite you to look at the website – please note it is brand new and we have just started the process of populating it.

You can complete your profile here – it only takes a few minutes:


You can also upload useful documents or newsletters by clicking Upload Document or Link in the My Profile section. This is a great way to share your knowledge with our community.

Once we have a good number of people registered as willing to offer help, the website will be promoted on email and social media.
Please get back to me if you have any questions.

Show neighbours your photography snaps of Wellington!

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Kia ora Wellington, it's time to dust off that old camera, get out and about and show the rest of your neighbours your favourite, treasured spots in your region. It could be an awesome view, the shy wildlife or even the old buildings that are wanting their stories to be told.

Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.

New to Paula's - the Palliser range

Paulas Home & Living

Does understated have to be boring? We think not. The Palliser is modest yet delightfully detailed. With linear oak slatted doors that gently curve around its organic form, the Palliser is sure to please the eye and your touch.
