Free annuals from Seymour Square

The Team from Marlborough District Council

Twice each year, our gardeners plant thousands of annuals in Seymour Square. With spring here, it’s time for them to be removed and the garden beds prepared for summer planting.

Next week, the beds will be dug over and the poppies, polyanthus, snapdragons, violas and pansies removed. A few tulip bulbs will also be lifted to give away.

Come along on Monday 2 December from 8.00 am to 10.00 am. In the event of rain, the event will be postponed to Tuesday 3 December. Our gardeners will be on site to help. Please bring your own fork and containers.

A young life changed

The Team from Graeme Dingle Foundation

An 11-year-old Bay of Plenty boy may look like an ordinary child, but the challenges he has faced and the struggles he’s overcomes set him apart from the crowd.

Are you a fan of fast fashion?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Many of us grew up flocking to Glassons, Hallenstein's, Cotton On and Just Jeans for our hardy perennials - jeans, t-shirts, summer dresses - and some of us still do.

But we're increasingly becoming aware that buying a $20 t-shirt that won't last the distance isn't that great for the environment.

While some of us are pledging to only buy second hand or to invest in statement pieces - more expensive items that will last a long time- not all of us have that luxury.

We're wanting to speak to someone who isn't giving up their fast fashion any time soon, whether it's for economic or style reasons, personal choice or indifference to the environment. Maybe you're a student who likes the choice chain store fashion brings, or perhaps you're a parent whose children are growing too fast to risk splashing out on expensive clothing.

If this sounds like you, please email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz.
