The Petition calling for action on social and affordable housing in Kapiti was signed by 447 people and we presented it to MP Terisa Ngobi yesterday, The hikoi was in rainless humid conditions and we were all hot and thirsty at the end of it! Thanks to everyone who signed the petition and for all the toots of support we got along Kapiti Road.
Attached is the cover letter we gave our MP. We believe a spark is well and truly alight now and that Council and Govt know that the ball is in their court on housing.
Helen Moore, from Napier, sent us this sad but lovely story on Snuffy and PK.
"Snuffy, aged 17, a fierce defender of her property, a drama queen and dedicated rodent hunter. Died from kidney failure late 2018. PK, a massive show off and occasional thief, her sister, died aged 19 early in 2021, a week after my husband died. She comforted me beforehand even though she was unwell herself, snuggling up and licking the tears from my face."

This week we feature a picture from Louise Thomas, who has been to Stewart Island.
"You shall not pass!" she said defiantly standing her ground in the middle of the track. "You can however, sidle past while I stand on this stump." How can something so small be so completely unafraid of the world? South Island robin/kakaruwai (Petroica australis), Ulva Island, 7 January. I guess that makes it P. a. rakiura.
