Have you spotted a rook on your property?

Community Engagement Advisor from Greater Wellington Regional Council

These large invasive birds are a problem in the Wellington region because they eat and destroy newly germinated seedlings, which sometimes means entire crops need to be re-sown.

We need to protect our region’s environment and economic wellbeing from damage, which is why we aim to remove rooks from our region by 2029.

Brand New Art Studio in Island Bay

JoElle from Island Bay

Hello Everyone,

In case you haven't heard, we opened a brand new art studio here on The Esplanade; South Coast Studio.

We offer a variety of workshops including basic drawing, life drawing, perspective drawing, watercolours and sketch a pet.

We are baby friendly so parents can learn while hanging with the bubba during the day.
Parent and teen sessions offer great opportunity to explore a shared interest and spend time together.

Likewise, we welcome and encourage our senior neighbours to come and pursue their creative interests in an environment that is fun and supportive.

Would you like to organize a fun outing for your group? Private lessons or specific group requests are always catered for. Why not have an art event for a treat?

Check out our website for more information.

Get in touch with JoElle to sign up for a workshop 021 519 920.

Come join us, bring your mates and please spread the word if you know someone who may be interested.

Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.

- Green is for I'm OK

- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in

- Red is for an emergency

This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while also looking out for others in your community.
