Poll: What do you want from your library?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Wellington City Council is considering what to do with its earthquake-prone central library. Examples from New Zealand - like Christchurch's Turanga - and overseas show what a 21st century library can look like. What would you like to see from Wellington's new facility?

What type of wasp?

The Team from Wasp Wipeout

Hi everyone, today we are linking to two stories, one which explains the paper wasp which we find in abundance in urban areas, and the other which talks about the common and German wasp which dominates our forests and recreational areas. We'll also talk about how to deal with these nasty predators. If you destroy a nest, take a pic and upload your image with the hastag #waspwipeout! But be careful!

Vinyasa Yoga on Saturday mornings - Aro Valley Community Centre (9 am - 60 mins) - Brooklyn Community Centre (10.30 am - CANCELLED) Blue Ocean Yoga

Jenn from Brooklyn

Hi there

Blue Ocean Yoga will be having a guest instructor to lead our classes this weekend - Please welcome Freda Wells

Freda first experienced yoga at the age of 18 in an old church in Belgium and has continued her personal practice ever since! This year, she completed her 200-hour yoga certification with Nico Luce and has begun her journey as an instructor. Freda loves yoga for many reasons - it is a powerful tool and always at our fingertips (literally). It brings calm, balance, strength, mobility, and clarity to body and mind - and a lifetime of learning. She's excited to share her love of yoga and help her students feel great!

We will have our 60 min yoga class at the Aro Valley Community Center at 9 am. Due to the forecast weather, have decided to cancel the Brooklyn 10.30 am class outside on this occasion. Will be returning next week for both classes at our regular times.

Classes will be held Saturday mornings for the following dates listed below:

2019 Schedule (2020 Schedule to be posted soon)

7, 14 and 21 December (Christmas break, returning 11 January 2020)

(Please note: no class on 7 December in Brooklyn due to the Brooklyn Community Market that has been scheduled. Also, due to the scheduled weather forecast, have decided to cancel this class outside. Option to join Aro Valley class @ 9am).

Parking available at the Brooklyn Community center (car park).

All levels welcome/drop in. Please bring your mat!

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly or call.

Look forward to seeing all of you there in the coming weeks as we finish out the year!

Kind regards
