I am looking for feedback on what you would like to see on Neighbourly.
At the moment the only regular feature is Way Back Wednesday, featuring historical pictures of Wellington.
One option is a regular feature on a well known sportsperson or your favourite restaurant. Or perhaps a post featuring your favourite bird (mine is the mighty kārearea).
Tell me what you would like to see.
A team of keen young Petone rugby league players will forfeit their points and risk disqualifying themselves in an upcoming tournament because one of their star players is banned.

New Zealand Rugby League rules state the maximum age for males and females to play in mixed gender full contact rugby league is 12 years of age.
