We have released the first edition of our newly revamped Seniors newsletter, which you can read here: officeforseniors.govt.nz...
In this issue we catch up with a veteran fencer, delve into all things insurance and discuss a bit about our Digital Literacy programme, plus more.
Dear people - in tiny writing on page 39 of last week's Chronicle the council outlined it's consultation process for closing the Landfill. This is the one that counts....because after so many years of meetings, consultations, submissions, court actions, surveys, petitions, attempts at restorative justice....we finally have a council that is prepared take the right environmentally-conscious action and close the landfill which is polluting local waterways, soil and air. If you're kind of 'over ' this business of the boring old landfill please just do this one final thing in support of the eco-warriors that have fought this long, hard battle to get the landfill closed. Email the council at email@example.com and say that you support the closure of the landfill at the earliest possible time which will be 2022. Closing the landfill is inevitable because landfill technology contributes to harming the planet. But we can't afford delays. As a community we must re-purpose our waste and closing the landfill ensures that we start thinking along the right lines to make the changes that are needed. There's other ways to give feedback but this one will take you about a minute. Please.

I ended up with a tree stump in my front lawn, so I made a hole in it and looked for something to fill it with. I'd never heard of a Heuchera before. It looked like it might enjoy the hole so I chose it. Here is the result. The flowers are smaller than a grain of rice. (Enlarge for a much better view.)
