So, take some time out of your busy schedule to enjoy the second of the Rotary Martinborough Fairs for 2020 starting on Saturday, 7th March from 8am to 4:00pm. Stalls and activities for this event will take place in and around Martinborough Square. 😀

What does that mean for you?

Your Route 200 to Masterton will be diverted away from the area during the hours of 4am to 6:30pm so that you can enjoy the festivities as the square will be closed to traffic. Your journey to Masterton will now start from Stop #1800 Martinborough - Kitchener Street (near 11) instead of your usual Stop #1779 located at Martinborough Town Hall. Stop #8991 Jellicoe Street at Naples Street will also be closed.

For more information and to view the diversion map, visit the link below. Know before you go by subscribing to MyMetlink, downloading the Metlink Commuter App or calling 0800 801 700. #Knowbeforeyougo #Metlinkbuses

Hi all,

I am a mature, single woman in my 50’s who is offering babysitting services to families in the nearby area. Happy to look after your children on weekends and have my own transport. I currently work full time in a Education government position and have been police vetted. As my own children have left the nest, I enjoy caring for other children and their young minds.

I have many years experience through my own children, friends and previous babysits. Happy to meet first and can be contactable anytime. Please message through Neighbourly and will happily respond quickly.

Thank you,

Every year, around 130,000 Kiwis fall victim to identity theft, with passport details the most commonly stolen information.

We’re wondering what Wellingtonians think about the use of biometric identifiers to unlock devices. Not just physical markers such as fingerprints and facial recognition, but also behavioural characteristics such as finger movements and gestures.

Would you feel safer online if you didn’t have to remember a list of passwords? Or would you feel uneasy about your device being able to recognise you from your micro-movements, for example? And, have you ever had your personal information stolen?

One way to take part is by joining or setting up a Neighbourhood Support group on your street.

Our Coordinator at Hastings District Council recently sent us this snap from a get together with residents from a new suburb who are keen to get Neighbourhood Support up and running.

To gauge interest, he hosted a free barbecue at a park with the support of their local New Zealand Police to bring neighbours together to discuss setting it up. Every group is different in how it chooses to operate. Our policy is whatever works best for your area!
