Tis the season... let's help make other's holidays more merry and bright.
My family and I moved to Wellington from Osaka, Japan last June. Since landing in this fair city, we have been continually in limbo as far as finding a permanent place to live. I, as a Kiwi, didn't expect it to be so difficult to find a home. If anyone knows of a place (a house or apartment) that is available to rent, I'd be grateful for a heads up.
Hello neighbours in Island Bay and nearby neighbourhoods, We love our neighbourhoods. Above all, we want to keep them safe for ourselves and our loved ones. We pull together to safeguard against any threats to our safety. The 'Neighbourly' pages help us to do this, which is great. Most unwelcome threats are visible and obvious, but right now a looming threat to our health and well-being is unseen and slipping under the radar. I'm referring to the roll-out of 5G. The higher frequency radiation planned for 5G has not been well-researched for health effects on humans, wildlife and the environment. Our Ministry of Misinformation (aka Ministry of Health) is saying that existing research can be applied to 5G but this is a hugely unscientific assumption, given that the characteristics of the higher-frequency 5G radiation are markedly different from existing 3G, 4G and wi-fi.....and many independent studies have found adverse health effects from these frequencies too. Increasing numbers of New Zealanders are becoming aware of the 5G issue and demanding a Moratorium on the roll-out until thorough, independent research on health effects has been carried out. Saturday January 25, (tomorrow) is the National Day of Protest throughout NZ. This has been organised in support of the Global Day of Protest in more than 40 countries around the world.
The attached gives details of the event planned for Wellington. Your support would be greatly appreciated. See you at Civic Centre at 12:30pm
Trade Me's latest figures show Wellington's median rent has topped $600 for the first time. But if you go further afield it's not much better, with the region sitting at $580, and areas like Upper Hutt, Porirua and Kāpiti Coast seeing huge increases in inquiries. Where are you choosing to rent these days?
