Tom Neighbourly Lead from Karori

Only 10 days to go before the Karori Lions' Super Garden Trail! The weather forecast seem to be suggesting that a bit of wet weather should be clearing nicely for the event!

Needed- Artist/Graphic Designer/ Graffiti Artist

Eli from Kelburn

Looking for a creative individual to create a work of art for the Kelburn Twilight Gala. I have just finished building a high-strike carnival game and need someone to adorn the 2100x400 back panel. See photo. It could be high-stike themed (a thermometer, progressively stronger animals, etc.) or abstract or kiwiana. You may have the bottom 400x400 to promote yourself, your art, your business to the people and families of Kelburn and greater Wellington. And it will be used over and over in the years to come (we hope!). While your work would be a donation in support of the school programs, I will offer $50 out of my pocket to help cover materials. The work must be completed by the end of Thursday (YIKES!) since the Gala is this Saturday. There will be some instructional text to be worked into the design which must be legible. And now- a shameless plug for the Gala- it promises food, fun, games and entertainment; come one, come all- do it for the kids! Saturday the 16th 4:00 to 8:00.

Poll: Is it time to revive Wellington's flag?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

It's unmistakable: the trireme-like ship, the flying dragon-dolphin-fish, the English flags. Quintessentially Wellington. Right?
The new mayor of Wellington and a city councillor want to see the revival of the city's flag and coat of arms around the city in help foster "civic pride". But, others say the flag is "a relic of the past" that fell into disuse for a reason. What do you think of the flag? www.stuff.co.nz...
