"Just spotted a cat on Neighbourly and we decided to send you a couple of photos of our dog Murphy. He is a lab cross pointer and he is doing particularly well in countin...the numbers of his snacks   He’s been studying well combining with some leisure time, so managed to graduate our home university...Hope his academic highness will brighten someone’s day, like he  makes our life happier for more than seven years."

Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.

Spring into Tawa Festival for 2021 is cancelled

Tracey from Tawa

We are sad to announce that Spring into Tawa 2021, due to be held on Saturday 30 October, has been cancelled, due to ongoing uncertainty related to Covid-19.

We are sad to announce that Spring into Tawa 2021, due to be held on Saturday 30 October, has been cancelled, due to ongoing uncertainty related to Covid-19.
With no certainty of when Wellington will return to Level 1, and in fact what Level 1 may look like in the future, we can not carry on planning to hold this event. To say we are devastated would be an understatement – we are devastated for our community, our stallholders, our entertainers, our sponsors, our volunteers and everyone who looks forward to Spring into Tawa each year.

Postponement is also unfortunately not an option. Many of the key processes we have to implement each year have long lead times (e.g. the road closure is a 12 week process alone) and at this time of year we should be putting the finishing touches on this year’s event, before taking a short break and starting planning for next year's event in late January.

Spring into Tawa is a not for profit event. We rely on sponsorship and grants as well as stallholder fees to run this event each year and therefore we have had to make the decision before we incur too much cost. We feel it’s the responsible thing to do, meaning that hopefully funding we have received from charitable organisations and the Wellington City Council can be reallocated to other worthy causes.

We are also on a zero waste journey as an event – and the idea of printing signs, billboard skins, banners, posters and other collateral that would go to waste without use is not in line with our drive to reduce the impact of our event on the environment.

We thank all our stallholders, entertainers, supporters, volunteers, sponsors and friends for their patience as we’ve worked through this decision process. We pushed our decision out to this week hoping it would give us a chance to go ahead. However, the time has come to make a call and cancel the event.

We would especially like to thank our amazing sponsors – Tamsin Davidson One Agency Reality, Speedy Signs Wellington, The Borough, Digital Tree Design and Peak Audio. Without their amazing support, we would not have got as far with our planning for this year’s event as we did.

We thank you all for your support for our wonderful event. The small team of dedicated organisers loves bringing this event to you each year – and seeing our amazing community enjoy the great day out.

And as a silver lining for those as devastated as us tonight, we’ve confirmed Saturday 29 October as the date for Spring into Tawa 2022. Lock it in now – we can’t wait to bring Spring into Tawa back to you in 2022.

And in the meantime, the ONLY way to get live and events back to some sort of normal – whatever that looks like! – is for each of us individually, and collectively with our family, whanau, friends and community to stay on top of Covid-19 measures – and to get vaccinated! For official information on Aotearoa’s Covid 19 response, please visit covid19.govt.nz...

With our kindest regards, until we see you again

"I don’t mind admitting I cried a little when I saw my first kākā in the wild in Wellington. It was some years ago now, but at the time it seemed incredible to me that this bird I’d only ever seen in photos or in captivity was marauding about my home turf.
The experience was a little overwhelming – not for them mind you, they just carried on ripping the bark from a tree and looking at me from time to time with vague interest. Now of course we grumble about how destructive they are - but hey, it’s a parrot – it’s what they do.
Also, I’m pretty sure our native trees and shrubs have evolved with this guy, so can no doubt cope with having a few blossoms ripped off or bark stripped.
If I had a built-in can-opener I’d be tempted to try it out on a few things too. Kākā/brown parrot (Nestor meridionalis), Wellington Botanic Garden today. As an aside, the tulips are blooming and looking magnificent there at the moment if you get the chance."

More changes are proposed on Evans Bay Parade, between Greta Point and Cobham Drive, to complete the route from Miramar to the city.

New walking and biking paths will tie in with the other paths in this area that are already proving popular and make it easier for more people to get around with fewer trips by car. Other proposed changes will improve the look and feel of this area and create more space for people.

Feedback closes on 12 October.
