Landlord: I won't increase the rent just because I can

Nice Place Property Management Ltd

This landlord hasn’t raised rent in 8 years! She’s made sure her home is comfortable as well as affordable for her tenants, without charging more then she needs to. Despite what some people may think, there’s more to being a landlord than making a profit. If you want to get into property investment – you need to understand that it is about providing a home, not just the $.

Join us this Wednesday!

Jane Fisher from Newtown Toastmasters

Toastmasters is often promoted as a tool to help you reach communication and leadership goals at work. Some larger organisations in Wellington even have staff Toastmasters clubs.

Sometimes life is bigger than work, though - and Toastmasters can help with other kinds of goals. Maybe you want to meet new people, give back to your community or get the confidence you need to speak at a family event.

Join us this Wednesday, 7.30 - 9.30pm at Newtown Community and Cultural Centre - we're diverse, dynamic and looking forward to meeting you :)

A national day of plastic protest has been organised, encouraging shoppers to unwrap and leave unnecessary plastic packaging behind at supermarkets.
