Help with panel beating wanted

Christophe from Te Aro

Hi everyone

My car was parked overnight in Dixon Street a week ago and someone broke my windshield and damaged the roof. I can’t replace the glass until the roof is fixed. Unfortunately, all Wellington panel beaters are busy until next year. I would be happy to pay someone who knows how to fix dents.

Thanks

Poll: Should Wellington city councillors get a free lunch?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

There's no such thing as a free lunch, unless you're a Wellington City councillor.
Six years after Andy Foster led moves as a councillor to scrap catered lunches at committee meetings - saving ratepayers $40,000 - the new mayor has now decided to reinstate them. He said the backflip followed pressure from councillors, while also promising to spend less on the midday spread than previous councils. "People felt when you didn't have lunches provided on days when you were working through [into the afternoon], councillors tended to disappear all over the place to get lunch. It reduced team bonding." What do you think- should councillors get lunch provided?
