Hello Everyone! I would be extremely grateful you could spare a couple of minutes to fill in my online survey

Glen from Paraparaumu

Hi There!

I would be extremely grateful you could spare a couple of minutes to fill in my online survey where I am looking for your views on plastic packaging and single-use bags in New Zealand supermarkets.

The questionnaire is completely anonymous and an important part of the research paper I need to complete my MBA.

You can complete it online at docs.google.com...

Thank you so much for your support, you are all fantastic!

Classical Guitarist Matthew Marshall - Mulled Wine Concert.

Mary Gow from Mulled Wine Concerts in Paekakariki

New Zealand is a guitar culture and Kapiti guitar lovers of all ages will welcome a special
visitor to Paekakariki on Sunday 15 August.
Matthew Marshall is one of the finest classical guitarists in the Southern Hemisphere.

Acclaimed by the Dominion Post as "...a guitarist of superb technical accomplishment and a musician of perception and style", Marshall's performing career spans more than 35 years and two thousand performances across four continents.
He is passionate about contemporary music, especially by New Zealand composers and has commissioned or premiered more than 50 chamber and orchestral works for guitar.

Marshall works across a range of musical styles and genres and in addition to performing with world-ranked orchestras such as the Berlin Chamber Orchestra and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra has worked with artists such as Dame Kate Harcourt and Sir John Trimmer and jazz musicians including Rodger Fox and others. He has recorded thirteen albums for solo guitar and has been a finalist in the Best Classical Artist category of the 2020 Aotearoa Music Awards.

A respected academic musician as well as a performer, he is currently Professor of Music and Head of IDEAschool at the Eastern Institute of Technology in Napier.
His appearance in Paekakariki will be the final one of a road trip covering 12 towns from Dunedin to Auckland. He enjoys coming to the Kapiti Coast - this will be his fourth appearance at a Mulled Wine Concert - and audiences here will enjoy his relaxed and friendly performing style.

His programme will cover music from eight countries and includes classics such as a Bach Prelude and a Pastorale from Benvenuto Terzi as well as some dynamic new music, from contemporary classisists and electronic experimentalists such as Milton Mermikides, Stephan Rak and Mario Gangi.

Matthew's uncle, famous ballet dancer and artist Sir Jon Trimmer will exhibit his paintings at the concert.

Mark from Waikanae Beach

My mother lives in a council owned pensioner flat in Paraparaumu Beach.
She has been there for 3 years this coming October I think 🤔
The people had notice recently that there would be a rent hike from the end of September.
This would be the 2nd increase since mum moved in.
The 1st increase was 3.5%.
The latest increase will be 44% !!!!
The inhabitants signed a petition which the Council have rejected.
Would a private landlord be brought to task over such a large increase ?
There is nothing in law that states what landlords can charge.
