SPECIAL SCREENING of Briar Grace-Smith's film 'COUSINS'
at Te Raukura ki Kāpiti
Saturday 23 October, 5pm

Based on the 1992 novel of the same name by Patricia Grace, the film follows the journeys of three cousins in their lifelong search for each other. “Cousins is a story about strength and resilience, touching on epic events in the history of Aotearoa ... however, at its heart it is an intimate story, about the theft of a child and her family's lifelong quest to bring her back home to her people," says Grace-Smith.

This is a one-off, final-push fundraiser for our building redevelopment project. All proceeds from ticket sales will go toward this project.

The event will be held under Covid levels one or two, with social distancing and Covid safety measures in place. Tickets may therefore be limited, so booking is essential. Bar service will be available and a refreshment is included in the ticket price.

TICKETS: $30 - available through Eventfinda online; by calling 0800 BUY TIX (0800 289 849); or at the Coastlands Information Desk.

Thanks to Te Raukura ki Kāpiti for their support.

Join the rest of the motu on October 28 by taking part in our national earthquake drill and tsunami hīkoi, ShakeOut. Signing up only takes 2 minutes and when you do, you’ll be entered to win a personal emergency grab bag or civil defence wheelie bin kit from NZ Civil Defence.
ShakeOut takes place around the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake:

DROP - down on your hands and knees. This protects you from falling but lets you move if you need to.

COVER - your head and neck (or entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is within a few steps of you). If there is no shelter nearby, cover your head and neck with your arms and hands.

HOLD - on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. If the shaking shifts your shelter around, move with it.

Head to www.shakeout.govt.nz... to sign up today and get involved!

Looking for home help

Anna from Paraparaumu Beach

Hi neighbour,

Hi neighbour,

We're recently settled in Kapiti and don't really know anyone here.

Husband just found work after redundancy, and I'm a stay at home mum with a very active 14 months old. We've been working too much/hard and are struggling with health, so wondering if a neighbour would be willing to spend some time with our little Vicky/do some chores to free us up for some rest/seeing doctors etc.

Since husband is working now we are able to pay. Please let us know how much you would charge per hour. We can pay cash on the day.


We're located on Manly street, Paraparaumu Beach.


Household help involves things like dishes, laundry, rubbish, vacuuming, mopping, assistance with meal preparation etc. Baby care can be just playing with her/reading etc, but ideally helping her learn. It can be baby care like feeding, diapering and dressing later on.


We are especially happy to find a grandparent(s) figure for her, as she has been unable to spend time with hers due to COVID.


Please message me/text me on 02102285405/email me anna.zhucova@gmail.com if any of this interests you. Thank you & have a beautiful day!
