Friday Feathered Friend

"I love birding – some days are just filled with hope and potential. I set out in the rain hoping to maybe see a few kākā/brown parrots or maybe snap a few tui on the right angle, possibly come across some rotund kererū for comedic relief. But some days are blessed with a little extra and the unexpected. Today I came across an unbanded pair of kākāriki/red-crowned parakeets (Cyanoramphus novaezelandiae) fossicking in the undergrowth, then feeding in the trees – blissfully unaware they are relicts of better times. Hopefully proof-positive they are spreading in Wellington and the Hutt Valley. Wellington Botanic Gardens."

Rosa Stewart, from Stokes Valley, is the proud mum of Tazzy.

"Yesterday I was doing my usual stalking of the backyard birds with my camera behind my washing line as they were flying in for their daily feed of the seed that I had just thrown on the lawn and wondered why they just suddenly all flew off in all directions! What had scared them off was the sight of this magnificent but rotound feline lurking quite near by.

She is very much a Jeckyll and Hyde character, very friendly when she is tucked up with me at night and just loves having her belly rubbed. But outside she runs away when approached and totally disappears when friends or family drop in for a coffee!"

I have had many cafe exhibitions but now I'm wanting a permanent space to hang my work and rotate it as it sells. I'm thinking outside the box and wonder if there are retailers who would love to have beautiful paintings enhancing their environment....possibly an antiques shop, a high end fashion store, a collectibles store, a library or another space that I haven't thought of....I believe that I'm a golden opportunity regarding my ability to produce high quality paintings...but I need an outlet.....if you have a store and/or would like to talk to me about your idea please respond below. Please see my attached images, I'm a saleable artist. Thank-you, Niki. www.nikiphillipsart.co.nz...

The SAC committee is pleased to invite you to an evening where we will show a DVD of NZ Fibre Art.
The DVD was directed by Peter Coates, a well known artist and film producer/director who, throughout his long career, has had a huge role in promoting and celebrating art and craft of all varieties both in NZ and overseas. Peter was our guest speaker back in April, and donated the DVD to the Club.

We were sad to have had to postpone our Annual Exhibition and Sale of work, scheduled for the end of October, because of Covid restrictions. This was special as it would have been our 50th exhibition. We plan to hold it next year Covid permitting!

We are pleased to invite you to come and view this DVD….. Seatoun Village Hall, Wednesday 20th October, 7.30pm.
Please log in with your Covid Ap, or record your presence in the log provided, wear your mask, and seating will be spaced.

Our homes can be our greatest investment and protecting our homes against climate change has become more important than ever.

Our changing climate poses risks to our natural and built environments. Swiss Re in a global analysis of insurance risk said to “expect climate risks to raise global property premiums by 33-41% between 2020 and 2040”. The potential increase was deemed a direct consequence of our changing climate.

Our Climate Insights property report provides easily understood information on change to risks for your current or a future property. The report includes robust and actionable information for residential property owners, tenants and investors to enhance their property’s climate resilience.

Join the rest of the motu on October 28 by taking part in our national earthquake drill and tsunami hīkoi, ShakeOut. Signing up only takes 2 minutes and when you do, you’ll be entered to win a personal emergency grab bag or civil defence wheelie bin kit from NZ Civil Defence.
ShakeOut takes place around the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake:

DROP - down on your hands and knees. This protects you from falling but lets you move if you need to.

COVER - your head and neck (or entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is within a few steps of you). If there is no shelter nearby, cover your head and neck with your arms and hands.

HOLD - on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. If the shaking shifts your shelter around, move with it.

Head to www.shakeout.govt.nz... to sign up today and get involved!
