Do you recognise these people?

Kate Green Reporter from Dominion Post

Are any of these faces familiar? A reader has given us this original photograph of a group of waitresses on the opening night, in the year 1972, of what is now Leroy's bar on the Plimmer Steps, but was then The Woolshed Restaurant. The manager at the time was Stephen Petty. We'd love to … View moreAre any of these faces familiar?

Our waterways and all the fish and species that live in them are precious taonga, so we have set out to understand how they are valued and what should be done to provide the future we want for our water. I am a conduit to Ngāti Toa Rangatira mana whenua on the Whaitua Committee. I am looking forward to working with Ngāti Toa mana whenua and you to shape the future of our water.

Our population is growing fast and placing more pressure waste and stormwater infrastructure. Some of our waterways have high levels of E-coli and other illness causing bacteria for anyone who ingests them. We need your help in protecting the health and mauri of our waterways, for us and for our children , which are under pressure due to increasing population and land development.

Fixing the waste and stormwater infrastructure is costly. Help us to find solutions that are fair and equitable. These are big changes, and needs to reflect our communities’ views informed by good evidence and information.

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 (www.facebook.com...), and to share what you value about our water and your solutions have your say (www.haveyoursay.gw.gov.nz...)

I’m a teenage girl living in Wellington, New Zealand. My cat Charlie (7yrs old) has been at the vet clinic for four nights with his first undiagnosed infection. He is usually very chatty, talkative and cuddly but he has lost his meow and stopped eating. The bill has gone up to $1000, my family don’t have the funds to pay for it. I am the only one with no bills, therefore am working my hardest to try and raise money. I have a job, however, I’m unable to get the funds quick enough since it’s so expensive. I’m hoping to gain some support and be able to save Charlie.

Francisca Murray-Abarca's involvement (page creator)
The funds will go into my mother's account which will be going to my pet cat.
¡Use of funds
To pay for the care and support my cat needs to survive. If there is extra money donated it will go immediately back to charity.
