PUPPY MISSING AGAIN 😢 Strathmore area

Kirstie from Strathmore Park

Hi all,
Gordon has absconded again. We boarded up any areas we thought he could wiggle through or jump over but he seems to have outwitted us.

Hi all,
Gordon has absconded again. We boarded up any areas we thought he could wiggle through or jump over but he seems to have outwitted us.
This time though he has been missing since around 8 this morning with no sign of him since.
He answers to Gordy, is wearing a teal collar and has uneven white socks on his front paws. He's incredibly social so will approach most people.
Please keep a look out in the Strathmore area for our baby. My number is 0275027061
Thanks, Kirstie & Dave

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 don’t worry! When you bring your green waste to the Southern Landfill it will be turned into Capital Compost – 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:

A 42-square metre, one-bedroom property at 46b Camperdown St, Miramar, was on the market for offers over $745,000.
The 42-square metre Miramar house was described as “perfect for busy singles, or couples” in the listing by real estate group Ray White. One housing advocate instead described the house as like a “more respectable version” of the converted shipping container recently listed for $390 per week in Johnsonville.
Would you pay $750,000 to live in a container?

Hi neighbours,

Want to know when it's your turn to get the Covid-19 vaccine?
An online tool (click on Read More) which can help New Zealanders figure out which vaccination group they’re in has been released.
The questionnaire is available on the Unite Against Covid-19 website.
Users answer a short series of questions about their health, location, job, and life situation.
The results tell them which of the four main vaccination groups they’re in, and when they can expect to get their vaccine.
Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said the tool also provided more information about who is in each group.
“So if you’re a healthcare worker or work in a long-term residential environment, for example, it will provide an indication when you can expect to get vaccinated.
“You don’t need to provide any information that could be used to identify you, and the information you do provide isn’t saved once you leave the web page.”
The ministry said it was in the process of being translated into 24 languages, which would start to appear on the website from Monday.
The website page and online tool will be updated as the vaccine roll-out plan scales up.
“As we move through the roll-out of the vaccination programme, we want people to be as informed as soon as possible about when they can expect to be vaccinated.
“This tool is designed to make that as easy as possible,” Bloomfield said.
