He Ara Kotahi bridge not the place for padlocked romantic gestures

Matthew Dallas Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Morning Neighbours,
People love He Ara Kotahi bridge, but Palmerston North City Council is adamant they don't want any love locks on the bridge, fearing it may damage the lights. Fair call? Is there somewhere more appropriate where Manawatū romantics can feel like their in Paris, attach a padlock and throw away the key?

Annual food drive set to be canned due to sponsor woes and lagging goodwill

Matthew Dallas Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Morning Neighbours,
After running for 28 years, the big annual pre-Christmas food drive in Palmerston North is no longer considered viable. Part of the problem is potential sponsors don't want their name anywhere near plastic bags given their poor environmental reputation. However, the Salvation Army sends out recyclable bags.
Could you tell the difference between recyclable and non-recyclable plastic? Do you think businesses are overreacting, or does the annual cause need to change with the times?
