Wellington City Council is moving to eventually gte rid of pokie machines in the city.
Barring any last-minute changes of heart, a Wellington City Council committee will agree to the policy, meaning all existing pokie machine venues can keep operating, but no new permits will be issued and, over time, this will theoretically lead to fewer gambling machines.
The "sinking lid policy" is being driven by Cr Tabatha Paul.
If the eventual drop-off in pokie machines led to community groups getting less funding, Paul said it would be time for the central government to step in.

I have started a give a little page so that the public can support the local bus drivers should they go on strike. You may have read about in the local papers what has happened to them recently
Further details are in the link below. Feel free to circulate the link far and wide. If they do not go on strike this year all funds raised will go to the Mary Potter Hospice.
Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.
