Funding for Neighbours' Day in March 2017

Malcolm Sparrow from Councillor Malcolm Sparrow - Wellington City Council

Just 10 days to go to apply for funding .....

If you’re thinking about a street barbecue or a similar community event between the end of November 2016 and the end of March 2017, you’re welcome to apply for funding from Wellington City Council. The official dates for Neighbours Day in 2017 are 25-26 March. Some suburbs hold their street get-togethers any time in February or March.

Some groups use the funding for the likes of a bouncy castle for their street barbecue, others for signs to promote their event, etc.

A maximum of $500 can be allocated for each project. You need to apply through a registered organisation or society. If you’re looking for support for your own street party, contact your local residents/community group to act as an ‘umbrella’, or contact Council as soon as possible if you need assistance with finding an umbrella organisation, or message me for advice.

All applications for grant funding must be submitted by Friday 28 October 2016. Details are available at wellington.govt.nz...

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 💛
