Wellington's 'sit-down comedian' with a new take on funny

Kate Green Reporter from Dominion Post

Audiences often don’t know what to expect when David Batten wheels onto the stage.

More a “sit-down comedian” than a stand-up comedian, as he likes to joke, Dave is 29, (“Holy hell,” he said) and has lived with athetoid cerebral palsy his whole life.

Pauatahanui School Lamb & Calf Day

Community Engagement Advisor from Greater Wellington Regional Council

Fun-n-gala time! Are you keen to do your bit to improve the health of the Pauatahanui inlet?

Visit our stall at the Pauatahanui School Lamb & Calf Day on Saturday 7 November. Find out how you can improve the health of our waterways in the Pauatahanui area and inlet. Your efforts can boost biodiversity and reduce sediment levels in our streams through erosion control and planting. Staff will be available to offer advice and help find out if your property could get funding assistance.

Bring along a weed from your garden and swap it for a free native plant. And loads of fun for the kids! We will have a catchment model at our stall for kids to experiment and learn about sediment, streams, gullies and wetlands. See you soon.
