Poll: Is bilingual signage a worthwhile investment?

The team Reporter from Dominion Post

Hi neighbours - Porirua City's new bilingual signs have cost nearly $30,000 in consultant and designer's fees.

Featuring Te Reo Māori and English, the signs cost $27,360 to design, which included work by cultural advisors and bilingual experts.

Wendy Walker, Porirua City Council Chief Executive, says that "by bringing Māori language into our everyday lives, we help those less familiar with it gain confidence, as well as recognising those who already speak Te Reo."

What do you think about this? Do you think the bilingual signage is a worthwhile investment? Read more here

Anyone on Ohiro Road missing their Ubereats delivery?

Sharyn Neighbourly Lead from Brooklyn

So ummm I'm really bloody blonde tonight and we ordered food delivered through delivereasy.
Knock on the door came and I opened it, cause it's freezing cold I kinda grabbed it and ran back upstairs.
Got upstairs and it's an Uber Eats bag!

By the time I was upstairs in the light the driver was well gone! and Ubereats support is utterly SHITE.

Is anyone on Ohiro Road missing an Ubereats delivery that says on the app it's been delivered?
