Meet Eddie Writes. He's 7, and won a Wellingtonian of the Year award for philanthropy. He spends his spare time tie-dying t-shirts and ironing patches on bags to sell online - raising $10,000 for Wellington Regional Hospital. We bet there's lots of Eddies out there. Tell us about your kids' kind deeds in the comments.
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?
If any mature, quiet & tidy couple needs a 2 bedroom rental in Tawa then this is the place for you:
The trucking operations that have been operating this week, continue to prevent sludge from being discharged into the Cook Strait. The alternative operation means trucks on 24 hour rotation collect the wastewater treatment byproduct at the Moa Point Treatment Plant, taking it to the landfill at Carey’s Gully.
The operation was today refined by reducing the amount of trucks on the road and splitting them into two shifts of 6-7 trucks each. These trucks are continuing to keep up with demand, and are operating efficiently.
The fault in the pipeline was located yesterday, and we are continuing to plan a repair with a temporary bypass, as well as a long term fix. The location appears to be about 200m inside the tunnel under Mt Albert.
We are working with the local community at Moa Point, and are holding a community meeting on Sunday to update them on the project and address any concerns residents may have.
We will provide further update on Monday 27 January.
