Kia ora Kāpiti,

What's your opinion on street art? Are there any spots in your community that could do with a mural?

Construction sites and other disused structures around Wellington are getting facelifts, with local artists putting their touch on areas in a state of flux.

Wellington based artists Xoë Hall, Miriama Grace-Smith and Gina Kiel make up part of the Love Local: City Artwork initiative, with their work set to add vibrancy to revamps around the city.

The collaboration between Wellington City Council and WellingtonNZ has $60,000 which covers printing, installation and commission.

This week we feature Siam the klepto-cat. Not sure where Siam lives but the submission made by Sine Goldfinch was to good to ignore.
"Siam came in my cat door six years ago with this sponge in his mouth and dropped it at my feet as a gift for me. His owner gave him to me because he just refused to go and six years on, he still brings the same sponge to me every night. I'm pretty sure it is the equivalent of roses in his mind."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.

Every Friday morning dozens of people who suffer from strokes, Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions fill up a Porirua dance hall to dosey doe, salsa, and disco dance.
But they are not just there for fun, but to improve their brains.
Dancing has so many beneficial effects on the brain that it is now being used to treat people with Parkinson’s disease, which affects about 1 in 500 Kiwis.
“Motion is lotion, getting people moving is really important,” dance leader and physiotherapist Rachel Horwell​ said.
