Our kinda kindness at AMI

AMI Insurance

When a Christchurch school lost four classrooms to fire, retired AMI Branch Manager Philip Buckingham knew how he could help.

Philip – “ When one of our offices is relocated or refitted as a flexi workspace, there are all sorts of useful items left behind — stationery, file cabinets, chairs, desks, computer monitor arms. For years now, we have gathered it all up and donated it to schools; initially those hit particularly hard by the Christchurch earthquakes. It’s hard to explain, but it’s just in our DNA at AMI to help people. After the Russley School fire, there was an urgent need to get the kids some stationery. On my way home, I went to the school and spoke with the principal, Greg Lewis. We couldn’t have asked for a better principal for the school, he is such a great guy.”

Where are you renting?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Trade Me's latest figures show Wellington's median rent has topped $600 for the first time. But if you go further afield it's not much better, with the region sitting at $580, and areas like Upper Hutt, Porirua and Kāpiti Coast seeing huge increases in inquiries. Where are you choosing to rent these days?

How’s my network?

Community Engagement Advisor from Metlink: On Our Way

From Sunday 26 January 2020, Metlink will have some refreshed bus timetables.
Metlink’s Wellington network will be under pressure at this time of year, therefore you might not get your first choice of bus during morning peak. Know before you go. Ensure you are prepared with a back-up plan if you need to be somewhere urgently.

You deserve a reliable bus network and we’re working hard to make that happen. We are refreshing some timetables based on passenger boarding data to lay a solid foundation to build on, match available driver and bus resources due to the ongoing national driver shortage and work to improve reliability. Check what’s happening in your area by visiting www.metlink.org.nz...

We apologise if you’re affected by any disruption to your service. Stay up-to-date by subscribing to My Metlink, download the Metlink app or call the team on 0800 801 700. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
