Our broken heart: what needs to happen in Civic Square?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

The city's heart - Te Ngākau Civic Square - is shaping up to be a key battleground in this year's election. Wellington City Council CEO Kevin Lavery says politicians will have major choices to make about the square after the election: How safe do they want it to be?

Wellington City Council CEO Kevin Lavery says politicians will have major choices to make about the square after the election: How safe do they want it to be? Do they want to throw a lot of money at it over the next six years or spread that spend over 20 years to relieve strain on the public purse? What do you think needs to happen there?

Women's Friendship Group

Miriam from Crofton Downs

We are a group of women who meet once a month for a coffee and a chat (usually the first Sunday of the month). Your age is not really important because we have "younger" and older" women in the group but most of us are over 60. This is often when women lose "connections". … View moreWe are a group of women who meet once a month for a coffee and a chat (usually the first Sunday of the month). Your age is not really important because we have "younger" and older" women in the group but most of us are over 60. This is often when women lose "connections". For example, we retire, friends move away or pass away, our children are older so opportunities to meet through our children are decreased and so on. I found myself in one of those categories which is why I started the group. I have met some wonderful women in the year the group has been running. We are still a young group so ideas are growing or changing but basically we connect at least once a month.

Some of us also go to the Senior's Sneak Peak Movies on Wednesday morning at Brooklyn Penthouse, meeting for a coffee before we see the movie. There is also the occasional outing etc. This is not a "formalised " club but just a way of meeting and connecting with other women in the community with a view to making "closer" friendships. We keep in touch by email on a weekly basis and welcome those who would like to join us. Please contact Miriam, initially through neighbourly if you are interested in joining us.

Kmart's list of 31 recalls

Hi neighbours, do you love Kmart?

Hi neighbours, do you love Kmart?

Hundreds of thousands of inexpensive items that pass through the retail giant's checkouts every year, so it's only to be expected there will be recalls – Kmart even has a recalls page on its website, and there are 31 products on the list.

The $55 timber Occasional Chair is the latest casualty, although this is a withdrawal rather than a recall. We don't know the reason for its withdrawal, except Kmart says it is for "a potential quality issue". But what other products have been found wanting?
