Market gardener Tommy Young is down up to $7000 after the Wellington City Council told fruit and vegetable sellers they could not trade at the Sunday Harbourside Market due to COVID-19 restrictions.
While people could buy hot chips in beef tallow at Wellington’s Harbourside Market on Sunday, lettuce and other vegetables were out of the question.
At Ohau, south of Levin, market gardener Tommy Young received the cancellation call about 9.30pm. His truck was already loaded and ready for the early morning drive to Wellington to sell his wares at the popular market.
When Wellington’s Central Library finally re-opens in 2025, it will be under a new official name: Te Matapihi ki te Ao Nui.
The name has been used as a secondary title for several years, but will now be recognised as the official name of the library as part of a commitment to consult with mana whenua throughout the design process.
Te Matapihi ki te Ao Nui approximately translates to ‘The window to the wider world’.
In October 2020, city councillors voted unanimously to fix and upgrade the earthquake-prone building, which has been closed since March 2019, and officers were told to explore design options.

The Wellington City Council is prosecuting a driver who allegedly polluted the south coast.
"The irresponsible actions of a driver not securing their load last Friday resulted in thousands of polystyrene balls scattered around the south coast, devastating for the environment and marine life, and frustrating the affected communities. We identified the offender thanks to eagle-eyed locals, and have started the process of fining him $200."
