Who's setting off fireworks tonight?! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ’ฅ

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Fireworks are a ton of fun but carry real risks that need to be taken seriously. If you plan on lighting some here's some tips to keep everyone in your community safe and happy.

โŒ 1. Never light fireworks in dry or windy conditions.

๐Ÿ”ฅ 2. Only use fireworks in wide open areas, away from flammable items such as trees, grasses, gas tanks, and wood.

๐Ÿ’ฆ 3. Keep a bucket of water or hose nearby.

๐Ÿ‘ง 4. Children should never light fireworks themselves and need to be supervised closely at all times.

๐Ÿงฐ 5. Keep all unlit fireworks in a secure bag or container away from any source of fire until they are ready to be used.

๐Ÿ“ž 6. Be considerate and let neighbours know if you're planning to set off fireworks. Aim to finish at a reasonable time.

๐Ÿฑ 7. Keep pets comfortable and secure inside. The loud booms and flashing lights can easily scare them off.

๐Ÿฎ 8. Avoid lighting off fireworks around farm animals and be aware of any newborns or elderly neighbours who may also be affected. If possible, change locations to somewhere that minimises any disturbances.

๐ŸŒฟ 9. Be a tidy Kiwi and let's work together to keep New Zealand beautiful! Clean up any any rubbish and leave your spot better than you found it.

Where are you renting?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Trade Me's latest figures show Wellington's median rent has topped $600 for the first time. But if you go further afield it's not much better, with the region sitting at $580, and areas like Upper Hutt, Porirua and Kฤpiti Coast seeing huge increases in inquiries. Where are you choosing to rent these days?

Howโ€™s my network?

Community Engagement Advisor from Metlink: On Our Way

From Sunday 26 January 2020, Metlink will have some refreshed bus timetables.
Metlinkโ€™s Wellington network will be under pressure at this time of year, therefore you might not get your first choice of bus during morning peak. Know before you go. Ensure you are prepared with a back-up plan if you need to be somewhere urgently.

You deserve a reliable bus network and weโ€™re working hard to make that happen. We are refreshing some timetables based on passenger boarding data to lay a solid foundation to build on, match available driver and bus resources due to the ongoing national driver shortage and work to improve reliability. Check whatโ€™s happening in your area by visiting www.metlink.org.nz...

We apologise if youโ€™re affected by any disruption to your service. Stay up-to-date by subscribing to My Metlink, download the Metlink app or call the team on 0800 801 700. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
