Leave your car at home and use your feet

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Next Tuesday is World Car Free Day and the council is encouraging Wellingtonians to leave their car at home.

Local schools will also be encouraging students to walk, cycle or scooter.
Workers will be encouraged take a bus or a train, or even walk, rather than their car. Have your ever thought what your neighborhood would be like if there were fewer cars?

Hey Neighbourly folk, can you work out who this is and where the picture was taken. The only hint I will give is that it was 1909.

Poll: Should Aayla be allowed to play?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A team of keen young Petone rugby league players will forfeit their points and risk disqualifying themselves in an upcoming tournament because one of their star players is banned.
The reason? She’s a girl. Aayla Toman, 13, has been told she’s not allowed to play in the u13 boys’ grade in Wellington’s Pacific Youth Cup because of her gender – something that led her club team, the u13 Petone Panthers, to play her ‘illegally’ all season.
New Zealand Rugby League rules state the maximum age for males and females to play in mixed gender full contact rugby league is 12 years of age.
