Michael Hurst brings a glorious dose of masterful storytelling to Circa Theatre with his latest show The Golden Ass from 20 April!

Coming at you full force via ancient Rome, this free-wheeling adaptation is laugh-out-loud funny and subversively philosophical.

The original, written almost 2,000 years ago by Apuleius, is the only Latin novel to survive in its entirety. In this riotous adaptation Hurst takes his audience on a wild ride, bringing a fresh and funny take on this fantastical, hilarious and sometimes terrifying tale.

The Golden Ass is a tale of epic proportions, and a powerful plea for empathy in a world gone mad.

The Long Term Plan is open for consultation and we want YOUR input.

We have two main topics we are consulting on. These are:

🚌Should Greater Wellington own the region's bus assets (depots and charging stations)?

Should Greater Wellington own 100% of CentrePort?

The region's buses are owned by private companies and operated on our behalf. We are proposing the ownership of buses, depots, and charging infrastructure to provide long-term security and future-proof facilities.

Currently we own 76.92% of the shares for CentrePort. We are proposing the purchase of the remaining 23.08% to establish 100% control of the shares. Full ownership means CentrePort will remain in public ownership and enable us to determine its future.

Scammers posing as Police officers

Be aware, pesky phone scammers’ latest move may be posing as Police officers seeking your financial details.

New Zealand Police are aware of reports emerging this month where Kiwis have been contacted on the phone by someone claiming to be an officer. The officer will claim to be from a particular department, tell you that you have been a victim of fraud or scam, and begin to try and obtain further financial information from you. This is a scam.

Detective Senior Sergeant Craig Bolton, from Auckland City’s Financial Crime Unit, says there have been at least a dozen reports made to Police, and these scam calls are largely being made to landlines. “While Police do not have accurate numbers of how many of these scam calls have been received, it is important that the public are aware,” he says. “Police will make some enquiries into these calls, but our experience has shown that often phone-based scammers will be operating from overseas. “We appreciate the vigilance of those who have contact Police so far, as this will help us to make others in the community aware.”

Unfortunately, scams can take many different forms and target victims on different platforms, Detective Senior Sergeant Bolton says. “Scammers are opportunistic and thrive off your trust and good-will. If you receive a call of this nature, do not hand over any personal details.”
New Zealand Police will never contact people seeking their banking details, card numbers, pin numbers or passwords. There are instances where legitimate Police officers will contact you as part of their duties. Police ask that the public remain vigilant.

𝗥𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗲𝗿:
➡️Police will never ask for details about your bank cards, pin numbers or passwords over the phone.
➡️Trust your instincts. If something doesn't feel right, or is too good to be true, it probably is.
➡️If you are uncertain, ask for the officer’s details. Hang up, contact 105 and request the officer to contact you.
➡️Police aren’t in the business of offering prize money.

If you are in the unfortunate position of being a victim of a scam, please report the matter to Police.
Take the chance to upskill yourself on scam awareness, check for further information on the NetSafe website.

𝗘𝗺𝗮𝗶𝗹 𝘀𝗰𝗮𝗺:
Police are also aware of an email scam that has re-emerged, that claims to be authorities from Police and other justice sector partners. This scam has been subject of previous advisories. We continue to advise people to be extremely cautious when receiving unsolicited emails. Do not reply an the email of this nature under any circumstances.

Do you know someone who deserves to be honoured for the work they do in the community? Nominate them for a Porirua Civic Award!

Nominations for the awards close this week, Friday 12 April. Running in the city since 1993, they recognise people who have contributed to Porirua with their leadership, inspiration or commitment, often behind the scenes and out of the public eye.

Porirua Mayor Anita Baker says our city is full of residents giving up their own time for their neighbourhood, suburb or the city as a whole. These awards are a way to put worthy recipients in lights – even if it’s just for one night.

Past recipients have been recognised for things like maintaining a walkway near their home, helping with elderly care, supporting their local church, and volunteering their time and energy with a sports group or club.
