As part of our Cemeteries Management Plan Review for Mākara, Karori and Tawa cemeteries, we’re looking at how grave sites should be maintained. Many people like to place tributes on the graves of their loved ones, but the decorations can blow away, creating rubbish and causing pollution.
We'd like to do a quick poll: should plastic decorations be banned from the city’s cemeteries? Let us know what you think here: www.letstalk.wellington.govt.nz...

Feedback closes at 5pm Friday 31 July 2020. Your feedback will help us to prepare a draft plan, which will go out for formal consultation later this year.
I have an Optus D2 satellite dish so I can receive the Dutch/ Flemish BVN television broadcasts. Ever since they changed the transponder frequency I have no more reception. I do have the box plugged in and the remote and tried everything to change it but no luck. Is there anyone on Neighbourly who can do this for me? I will pay you for your time of course. I took a screenshot of the BVN website with details, but it does not mean anything to me. ( I know you can get BVN online, but I have the whole setup already and would like to use it.
A central Wellington park has become a magnet for “anti-social behaviour” with a new report detailing reports of drug dealing, violence, and sexual assault.

New Zealand springs forward this weekend as Daylight Saving time begins.
Clocks will go forward by one hour at 2am on Sunday 27 September. Daylight saving time will continue until Sunday 4 April 2020, when clocks will go back by one hour to NZ Standard Time.
Most New Zealanders should experience a seamless transition, with modern electronic devices adjusting automatically. However, older devices may need to be adjusted manually.
Do not forget it is also a good time to check emergency plans, survival kits and smoke alarms.
