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.

Where are you renting?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

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?

Poll: Should Glanmire Rd's notorius blind corner be altered?

Ana Maea Chitara from Newlands

Let's face it folks, that corner's dangerous. It's blind, and the number of cars parked on the outside curve means uphill traffic often crosses into the path of downhill traffic to get around.
It's so bad that the recent new seal has been torn up badly right where downhill traffic would hit the brakes.

It's perfectly legal to park there, but should a section be kept free for traffic? Does Wellington City Council need to look at it?

(Thank you the silver blur that didn't even bother to brake when they met our blue truck coming the other way (northwest) on that curve between Link Rd and Robert St. I'm sure the neighbours heard the screech of our tires perhaps 10.15am sun 26/01.)
