What would you like to see happen in Wellington over the next ten years?

Ruby Macandrew Reporter from Dominion Post

Hey Wellington neighbours! When polled, the majority of you (39 per cent) told us you thought the city had regressed in the past decade. We're keen to know why and what you would like to see happen to get Wellington back on track. Let us know in the comments below. (Please mark comments not for print with 'NFP')

Who said video killed the radio star? Not Toastmasters!

Jane Fisher from Newtown Toastmasters

This weekend we're taking up an exciting opportunity!

Tune in to "Educating for Social Change" on Access Radio (106.1FM) on Sunday 22 September from 4 - 5pm, to hear two of our members, David and Jane, and Daryl from Island Bay Toastmasters, talk about what Toastmasters is, what we do and what we get out of it.

We got the chance to do this as a result of some successful promotional visits with the students and teachers at the English Teaching Colleges in Wellington and Lower Hutt. The Toastmasters who took part had a great time meeting everyone and it was a real bonus to get the radio interview.
