Don't forget to change your clocks

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

New Zealand springs forward this weekend as Daylight Saving time begins.
Clocks will go forward by one hour at 2am on Sunday 27 September. Daylight saving time will continue until Sunday 4 April 2020, when clocks will go back by one hour to NZ Standard Time.

Most New Zealanders should experience a seamless transition, with modern electronic devices adjusting automatically. However, older devices may need to be adjusted manually.
Do not forget it is also a good time to check emergency plans, survival kits and smoke alarms.

What should the council do with Te Aro Park?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A central Wellington park has become a magnet for “anti-social behaviour” with a new report detailing reports of drug dealing, violence, and sexual assault.

The Wellington City Council report, published, found “a consistent level of anti-social behaviour” at Te Aro Park on Wellington’s Golden Mile, which was higher than other central city parks.
