Eulie, a 7-year old from Lower Hutt, is inviting all children and their whanau to start the new school year right by doing good for our community, our environment, and marine life. Come help clean up Petone Beach!
The clean-up will be focused on the western end of Petone Beach because it is a catchment area for plastic washed up on the beach by the tides. An easy way to make a positive difference to our environment now and for future generations is to help by picking it all up. Every piece of plastic collected is one less piece for marine life to consume; one less piece for marine life to become entangled in.
If you would like to come along and help clean up Petone Beach we will meet in front of the (blue) Wellington water ski clubrooms at the motorway end of Petone beach. Enter at Honiana Te Puni Reserve and turn right. There is a large carpark to the right of the clubrooms.
(Latex) gloves will be provided; however, garden gloves are ideal to wear over these if you are able to bring yours. Buckets are also ideal to bring along to collect the small pieces of plastic in, and these can then be emptied into the large coffee sacks.

The Green Party wants to see light rail in Lower Hutt.
The Greens’ transport policy backs the introduction of light rail between Wellington City, and the eastern and southern suburbs which they say would reduce congestion and emissions. It also includes extending it to Lower Hutt, making it possible to catch a light rail all the way from central Hutt to the airport.
Light rail could utilise the existing train network’s track gauge but Labour has already said it will not happen under its watch.
