Trick or treating: Love it or hate it

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?
And If you don't like… View more
Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?
And If you don't like trick or treating, how do you make it clear your house is a no-go zone?

We're keen to talk to some people who feel strongly about Halloween one way or the other. If you have thoughts to share, please email homed@stuff.co.nz and we'll be in touch.

Passengers using Wellington Airport can expect to be bussed to their aircraft during a billion-dollar revamp.
The 20-year redevelopment will also involve the airport effectively flipping its international and regional terminals. The northern terminal will be used for regional flights instead of the current international flights and the main terminal will be extended to the south and redesigned to cater for international and domestic flights. The airport has also confirmed the $31 million purchase of Miramar golf course, with the land to be used for additional aircraft parking.

We care about our environment, but sometimes recycling can be confusing.

Upper Hutt’s Park Street recycling station is open 24/7

How it works
There are three containers, two for plastic, cans, and cardboard, and one (split into three colours) for glass. The containers are taken to be hand-sorted at the material recovery facility.
The two cardboard, plastic and cans containers are emptied on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at around 9.00am, and Saturday around 3.00 pm. The glass container is emptied weekly.

Appropriate use
At the material recovery facility, a scoop test is taken of the recycling. If the material is too contaminated, the entire container will be landfilled.

Please do not dump your recycling!

The station is cleaned daily by Intergroup. Any material that is left outside the containers will not be recycled and Council is charged extra to clean it up. Make sure you check all of the containers—if they are all full, come back another time when they have been emptied.

Hi Neighbours, while waiting for the next Rugby World Cup match would you jump on board a real life Mario Kart?

When we heard that it was possible to experience real life Mario Kart in Tokyo with Maricar, we just had to visit. Join us as we dress up as Mario, jump in our go-kart and cruise through Tokyo. We speed past Roppongi, Tokyo Tower and the super famous Shibuya crossing. We didn't get the chance to throw any green shells or banana peels but this is definitely one of the most fun experiences in Tokyo.
