Promoting accessibility throughout Kapiti Coast

Dalmo Mendonça from Accessible Kapiti

Kia ora neighbours,

We are launching our new website AccessibleKapiti.nz as an initiative from the Kapiti Accessibility Advisory Group.

The website is dedicated to informing Kapiti Coast residents and visitors about accessibility in our region. But this is a two-way street. In the era of social networks, the information won’t only come top-down but especially bottom-up. We wish to establish a comprehensive database of services, tourist attractions and businesses that take accessibility into consideration.

And for that, we will need your help! Community contributions are essential for the development of the website.

Send us tips of places, pictures and news. Share it with your friends. Raise awareness in your social circles about the issue, and look for ways to make Kapiti more comfortable for all.

Business owners, this is a great opportunity to show that your place is friendly to all customers. Be it by having accessible pathways and most importantly by providing a mindful and attentive service. Send us information about how you take accessibility in mind and you’ll be on the website. That simple!

Do you provide any special service or are part of a group or organisation and want to have a voice on this issue? You are most welcome.

The Economy

Mark from Waikanae Beach

A couple of days ago I was looking for an on call gardener for a mate who has a lawnmowing business.
So he is happy to pay $25 ph which is $5 above the minimum wage I believe 🤔
Nobody interested.
Are things that good in Kapiti,that people won't get out of bed for $25 ?
What's the going rate for gardeners ?
$25 too low ?
Your thoughts appreciated
