SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Marge

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Meet Marge, who was once a stray.

"I am a very talkative girl who is always up for a chat with my special human. I have a lot to say, especially when you pat me! I'm also very affectionate, with a particular affinity for head butts, pats, and being picked up. Being slow and steady in your interactions with me is really important, as I can get nervous and unsettled when approached too quickly or intensely.
I'm not your typical lap cat during the day, but at night I want nothing more than to be by your side, whether that's sleeping on you or near you. I love bean bags, and temptation treats (in moderation of course!). I'm not always down to play, but when I'm in the mood, I love ping pong balls and stringy toys!
I'm looking for a quiet home with indoor/outdoor access, and that gives me space and independence when I need it. I would prefer a home without other animals or children as my mood can sometimes change quickly if I feel threatened or am unsure of my surroundings."

2017 Santa bear

Craig from Johnsonville

Hi everyone,
Unfortunately, our son's beloved Santa bear got too close to the fireplace and has been damaged. We're reaching out to see if anyone might have a 2017 Santa bear that they no longer want? We are happy to pay for it.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Rubbish and recycling delays

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

Due to a nationwide driver shortage, we’re still seeing some delays with our rubbish and recycling collections.

If rubbish or recycling has not been collected on your street on your normal collection day, please leave it out and it will be picked up the next day

Please note collections now start at 7am, so your rubbish and recycling may be picked up earlier than usual. Make sure you put everything out before 7am on the day of collection, or after 7pm the night before.

Thank you for your patience Pōneke 💛

Thank you from Wadestown Presbyterian Church

Church Secretary from Wadestown Presbyterian Church

There was laughter, there was cooking and there was a great sense of community happening on Friday and Saturday at Wadestown Presbyterian Church for our "Cook up a Storm" events. Our freezer is fully stocked full of yummy meals for those in need. A huge thank you to our wonderful volunteers who made this event happen. We couldn't do what we do without you wonderful people.
