The Wellingtonian of the Year awards' supreme winner has been jointly awarded for the first time in 31 years, with climate change activist Sophie Handford and Muslim community leader Tahir Nawaz sharing the honour.

Appealing to country folk we need a place for our border collie till my sister buys a house. He’s well trained but doesn’t get on with our lab so we need to find him a place without pets to have him. Happy to pay for his food.
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.
