"Sending Love" Cards for those that may be alone over Christmas

Marilyn from Carterton District

Hi everyone,
Sending Love is about people and communities coming together to make a festive gesture towards another person who may experience loneliness over Christmas. It is one person putting love and thought into a card to pass a smile and a sense of feeling remembered and loved onto another person. It is not an organization, or a charity; Sending Love is a platform and vehicle to enable sending love from one individual to another. It is an avenue to teach communities and children about the power of a simple act of kindness, and the impact this can have on the recipient. It is also about raising awareness in communities across the country of what may be behind closed doors, the sad reality of the loneliness that exists around us all, and that each and every one of us are empowered and have the capacity to be part changing that.

Just a friendly reminder that Christmas is fast approaching and we will be collecting cards again this year for those who may be alone over Christmas.
Drop boxes will be set up to collect your cards ( places to be advised).
Last year over 900 cards were collected in the Wairarapa and distributed to local Rest homes, Hospitals etc
You can check out Sending Love on Facebook or at
Thank you in advance
Marilyn Hunt (Wairarapa Co Ordinator for Sending Love)

What do you make of Wellington Airport's expansion plans?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Passengers using Wellington Airport can expect to be bussed to their aircraft during a billion-dollar revamp.
The 20-year redevelopment will also involve the airport effectively flipping its international and regional terminals. The northern terminal will be used for regional flights instead of the current international flights and the main terminal will be extended to the south and redesigned to cater for international and domestic flights. The airport has also confirmed the $31 million purchase of Miramar golf course, with the land to be used for additional aircraft parking.
