Looking to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle? Come and find out how at the Learning to Live Sustainably event at Khandallah Town Hall on Tuesday, 29 October 2019 from 7-9pm.

We have an array of speakers who will offer practical advce as to how you can you adopt more eco-friendly practices in your daily habits.
What does it mean to live a sustainable life? Put simply, it’s about using resources wisely: minimising waste, reducing your carbon emissions and making choices that can help rather than hinder the environment.

So how do you put that into practice? As we face the growing problems of climate change, rising sea levels, global warming and plastic pollution, it’s more important than ever for us to do as much as we can to preserve the planet.

Although these are big problems, we can tackle them in small steps – so long as enough of us commit to taking them.

Come Along.

Eight emergency preparedness organisations are coming together in the Khandallah Town Hall this Sunday 22 September from 2 – 5pm in a first of its kind Expo on Emergency Preparedness. This is a free event and everyone is welcome.

Nicola McFaull, President of the Onslow Residents Community Association (ORCA) said bringing together experts from the Wellington Regional Emergency Management Office, Red Cross, Urban Search and Rescue, NZ Police, Wellington Water, Survive-It, Emergency Radio and how to make a composting toilet provides a comprehensive picture of what people will need to know when the big one strikes.

“We have been told that when a large earthquake strikes, or an extreme weather event, the suburbs will have to fend for themselves for many weeks. We want to make sure our community is prepared and resilient so that all our residents can get through a disaster, including the most vulnerable people. This is one of ORCA’s goals.

“Our vision is for neighbours on every street to know each other and everyone is prepared for an emergency”.

Nicola said this is a free event. We encourage people to register to attend through eventbrite to ensure your seat and to go into the draw to win an emergency preparedness kit, register at
www.eventbrite.co.nz...

You can also register at the door on the day.
