As part of our regular training for our specialist teams, Police will be undertaking a training exercise in Kapiti on Friday 8 October.

The exercise will take place in Queen Elizabeth II Park between 9am and 3pm.

The Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF) will be supporting the training exercise with an NH90 helicopter.

Our specialist teams undertake this type of tactical training regularly at various locations around New Zealand.

During the training exercise, there will be a visible police presence in the area of Queen Elizabeth II Park, including staff carrying firearms.

Members of the public in the area will also hear noise from the helicopter.

Police would like to reassure the public that there is no cause for alarm.

Police are grateful to the Park Ranger and RNZAF for their support and assistance.

We would also like to acknowledge that these types of training exercises could not happen without the support of our local communities, and we thank them for their assistance and cooperation.

Had 4 x text messages tonight so far from 4 different 021 numbers telling me I've had a failed parcel delivery,and providing a link to go to - all different links including wasabibodyart/designoweb/verynewsy.
My partner has just received 1 as well.
I've rung all the numbers .... all have gone to voicemail,some of which have a real person leaving a reply and some not.
Anyone else had the same ?
Blocked each number,but then comes from a different number next time.

Solo mother of 4 kids desperately seeking a suitable rental

Rochelle from Raumati Beach

I’m still looking, I’m trying tirelessly but there’s just so many people going for the same houses...I feel like I don’t have a chance especially with the landlords high expectations!

I’m still looking, I’m trying tirelessly but there’s just so many people going for the same houses...I feel like I don’t have a chance especially with the landlords high expectations!
I’m so upset that this is the 4th house in 5 years that I have trusted my landlord when they said I have nothing to worry about and then they unexpectedly sold my home...it’s unfair but I just want to have my kids settled in a long term home - I feel so terrible that I’m dragging my poor kids through another move and I can’t even tell them where we are going to live when they ask....it’s heart breaking.

Please if anyone has a warm long term rental property of 4 bedrooms or more I would be forever grateful!! I am hoping to stay in the Waikanae, Paraparaumu, Raumati area due to my support system and work - on top of that my kids are settled at school and my teenager is in the middle of a building course.
My kids are 3, 5, 8 and 16.

I have great references from landlords, employers, church, friends and family.
I am honest and trust worthy and always pay my rent and water.
I am house proud so like to keep it tidy.
I am on the solo mums benefit and work part time as an ECE relief teacher.
Thank you for your time. 🙂 🙏

Representation consultation closes 5pm Monday 4 October.

We’re reviewing our representation arrangements – it's your opportunity to re-imagine your council and how it can work better for our district.

This is about the kind of democratic model we want for Kāpiti. It affects the number and location of wards and how many councillors we have, whether they’re elected locally (by ward) or district wide, and if we have community boards or not.

Have you spotted a rook on your property?

Community Engagement Advisor from Greater Wellington Regional Council

These large invasive birds are a problem in the Wellington region because they eat and destroy newly germinated seedlings, which sometimes means entire crops need to be re-sown.

We need to protect our region’s environment and economic wellbeing from damage, which is why we aim to remove rooks … View more

Here at Neighbourhood Support we know first hand that communities that stay connected and prepared fare better in emergencies and natural disasters than those without a plan.

For the month of October, we want to see how you tackle emergency preparedness. From getting first aid training and stocking up on essentials to putting together a grab n’ go bag or working with your neighbours to create a neighbourhood resillience plan, a little bit of planning goes a long way to make sure you and your community can get through any situation. Joining or setting up a Neighbourhood Support group is a great way to keep in touch and work together to reach out, look out and help out one another no matter what life may bring.

Don’t forget! This month also coincides with New Zealand’s national earthquake drill and tsunami hikoi, ShakeOut, which will be taking place on Thursday, October 28th at 9:30am.

Let us know how you’re getting prepared this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to: info@neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz
