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...
To share your suggestions about how best to manage graveside tributes and for more information, visit: 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.
Who can remember Pigeon Park?
In 1992 it was renamed Te Aro Park as part of a major redesign of the park, which was once a Maori pa site. After Europeans arrived it was the site of the first Christian sermon.
In World War Two it was the gathering point for pacifist objectors. For years it was also the starting point for demonstrations to Parliament.
It has again been in the news recently over complaints about people taking drugs and unruly behavior on the park, which was once the home to a sizable population of pigeons.

I'm interested in meeting neighbours who would like to exercise their talents at the
pool table! I'm an average player but would enjoy a game of pool from time to time.
