What fills your bucket?

Charmaine Rees from Prosper By Design Ltd

We have many buckets we like to fill in life. ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿบ

Friendship buckets, love buckets, career & finance buckets, spiritual, health, family......


Our personal development programme has really helped me to overcome LACK in some buckets, FILL other buckets and understand how much is actually in our control.

If your bucket needs a little more filling, it might be time to INVESTIGATE A WAY OF THINKING that really helps you to understand why things are they way they are, and what to do to change it.

Changes to kerbside rubbish - green waste

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

At the moment, Wellingtonians put around 130 tonnes of green waste from their gardens in their kerbside rubbish each week which breaks down in the landfill, producing methane gas - a big contributor to climate change.

As part of our new waste bylaw, yellow rubbish bags cannot contain more than 10% green waste.

But donโ€™t worry! When you bring your green waste to the Southern Landfill it will be turned into Capital Compost โ€“ and it only costs $5 to dispose of up to 85kg!

For more information about the bylaw and alternative ways to deal with your green waste, visit:

Local hero: Mary Potter nurse, Amanda Haye

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

When Amanda Haye finishes work at the end of the day, she knows she has done some good. Amanda works as a Hospice @ Home nurse with Mary Potter Hospice โ€“ a team which provides care for patients and their families in their home.
"It is great being able to be a comfort, and provide compassionate and quality nursing care in one of the most difficult periods of a person's life. It is an absolute privilege to do it in their own home. To serve patients in the community is phenomenal."
Many people assume the Hospice is a sad place to work. This couldnโ€™t be further from the truth, according to Amanda.
โ€œIt is helping people feel like they are truly living. That may mean helping them organise a fishing trip, a family holiday or a meal at their favourite restaurant. We want people to enjoy every part of their life. Even when their life is coming to an endโ€ Working alongside a multidisciplinary team was a huge help, Amanda says.

Nine minutes of fireworks cost cash-strapped council $175,000

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Do you support the council paying for fireworks?
Wellington City Council spent more than $175,000 on a fireworks display that exploded over a city facing a funding crisis, a rates hike, and a range of controversial cuts.
The council is considering a rates rise of up to 17 per cent and is scrambling to save money as it deals with a wave of big costs such as ageing pipes, a Central Library refit, and the Letโ€™s Get Wellington Moving transport package.
The council last week ditched an idea, proposed by Mayor Andy Foster, to save $120,000 in the coming year by getting rid of a programme of free pool entry for under-fives. But others remaining in the queue for possible cuts include a new Chinese gardens, cutting of some library funding for books, and some capital replacements.
