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?

Lace up for summer fun

The Team from Resene ColorShop Petone

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.

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...)

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?

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.

If you want to tackle big problems, try thinking like a bee!

Rod from Hive World Honey

So you've woken up and decided to take on that BIG problem, perhaps its helping homeless dogs or fighting climate change.
Yet as much as you'd like to act, you're stopped by some persistant piping doubts: where do I start? And even if I do something, will it really matter?

So you've woken up and decided to take on that BIG problem, perhaps its helping homeless dogs or fighting climate change.
Yet as much as you'd like to act, you're stopped by some persistant piping doubts: where do I start? And even if I do something, will it really matter?
Maybe its time to look to the humble honeybee for inspiration.

Most of the the lifespan of a worker bee (6 weeks in summer) is spent gathering nectar to make honey.
A bee makes only 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime - a tiny fraction of the many kilograms a colony needs to survive. The most remarkable thing isn't that she does the work but that she doesn't even do it for herself. A bee won't directly benefit from the honey she makes; instead it will allow future generations to survive after she is gone.
This too is how we can change the world - not by worrying about the size of our contributions but getting in and joining with others.

Keep making honey - Your 1/12th of a teaspoon counts!
