So, take some time out of your busy schedule to enjoy the second of the Rotary Martinborough Fairs for 2020 starting on Saturday, 7th March from 8am to 4:00pm. Stalls and activities for this event will take place in and around Martinborough Square. 😀

What does that mean for you?

Your Route 200 to Masterton will be diverted away from the area during the hours of 4am to 6:30pm so that you can enjoy the festivities as the square will be closed to traffic. Your journey to Masterton will now start from Stop #1800 Martinborough - Kitchener Street (near 11) instead of your usual Stop #1779 located at Martinborough Town Hall. Stop #8991 Jellicoe Street at Naples Street will also be closed.

For more information and to view the diversion map, visit the link below. Know before you go by subscribing to MyMetlink, downloading the Metlink Commuter App or calling 0800 801 700. #Knowbeforeyougo #Metlinkbuses

Every year, around 130,000 Kiwis fall victim to identity theft, with passport details the most commonly stolen information.

We’re wondering what Wellingtonians think about the use of biometric identifiers to unlock devices. Not just physical markers such as fingerprints and facial recognition, but also behavioural characteristics such as finger movements and gestures.

Would you feel safer online if you didn’t have to remember a list of passwords? Or would you feel uneasy about your device being able to recognise you from your micro-movements, for example? And, have you ever had your personal information stolen?

Our Coordinator at Hastings District Council recently sent us this snap from a get together with residents from a new suburb who are keen to get Neighbourhood Support up and running.

To gauge interest, he hosted a free barbecue at a park with the support of their local New Zealand Police to bring neighbours together to discuss setting it up. Every group is different in how it chooses to operate. Our policy is whatever works best for your area!

Hi, I'm Sean Rush and I am the Portfolio lead for Wellington's '3 waters' and represent the Wellington City Council on the Whaitua Committee.

We have considerable challenges to maintain our current network and be prepared for growth. Maintaining a balance between delivering affordable, clean and sufficient water must be balanced with ensuring our take does not adversely affect the eco-systems of the relevant waterways or result in environmentally harmful discharges.

Connect with us to talk about what we can do together. You can reach us at whaitua@gw.govt.nz. To see what we have been doing visit our Facebook page, and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say by following the link below.
