Paid parking on weekends looks set to stay. Wellington Mayor Andy Foster campaigned on restoring free central city parking on Sundays, and included it in his "first 150 days" plan. But as the council seeks public engagement on a review of parking policies, Foster admitted he didn't have the votes to pass free Sunday parking. Would free parking make you visit the CBD more?
With COVID-19 classified as a pandemic, there has never been a more important time to be Neighbourly. To ensure everyone in our communities feels safe and supported, spread facts not fear. Regularly consult government sources and encourage others to do the same.

For those who missed my previous message... Today my community yoga group and I did some yoga together via Facebook Live. Although I couldn't see them... it was still nice knowing that they were doing yoga with me at the same time in the comfort of their own safety bubble 😊 I have attached some screenshot photos of our first class together.
I like people to feel free to come and go as they please and not feel like they have to sign up to long term contracts. For $5 you can try a class and if you don't want to sign up after that it's fine! After the trial class it's $10 per class and I ask that you pay monthly to begin with. If classes go beyond lockdown than I may ask members to sign up/pay for two month blocks like they do in our face to face community classes.
If I gain 7 new members I will introduce a second weekly class which you can join with your $10 weekly membership. If I gain another 7 I will offer three weekly classes. So if you enjoy your trial class and want to do more than one class per week... you could tell your friends to help me reach these target numbers and therefore get more live weekly classes 😉
If interested in giving it a go, please message me via Neighbourly or email me at: NobelSoul@Outlook.com
