Poll: Do you support a by-law banning junk mail?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington City is proposing a by-law banning unaddressed or advertising mail being put in letter boxes marked "no circulars" or '"no junk mail".
The by-law is part of a waste management plan to reduce the amount of material going in to landfills.

Charity Screening: The Girl on the Bridge

Ruth from Waikanae

Shoreline Cinema will be hosting a charity screening of 'The Girl on the Bridget' on Wednesday 30 September.

It's a NZ-documentary that is very relevant, unfortunately, to today's society: "The story of a young woman with the weight of a generation on her shoulders. Having survived her own suicidal struggles Jazz Thornton is a mental health activist, fighting to change how society and the system are dealing with young people like her. Ultimately this is a film about hope. It’s a film about redemption. It’s a challenge to all of us to try to understand".

This will be a confronting watch but, I personally believe, a starting point for discussion.

Monies will be donated to The Key to Life Charitable Trust (the amazing peeps who are responsible for I Am Hope and Gumboot Up).

I am so grateful to Paula's Home & Living and Parabeam for sponsoring this event by covering the cinema hireage. Their generous contributions will ensure that there are more funds going to help those most in need. Other local businesses have also been amazingly forthcoming with offers of refreshments and raffle prizes on the night (eg Fusion Food Haus, Adorn Jewellers, The Remedy).

Tickets are limited. $20 pp. Let me know if you would like a ticket, or if you would like to donate to this worthwhile cause.

Thank you,
