People will get to have their say on Wellington's blueprint of its future. Councillors on Thursday voted on its draft spatial plan and gave the green light for city-wide engagement. The draft plan shows six-storey buildings in places like Johnsonville, as well as buildings of up to 10 storeys in Te Aro. How would you like Wellington to look in 30 years?
Lance Barnard might be the oldest barber in Wellington.
“It only feels like yesterday that I was the youngest,” Barnard jokes with a client. A fortnight ago Barnard moved from the barber shop on Courtenay Place where he spent the last 40 years cutting hair, to Cuba Barbers on Cuba Street.
Does anybody know if there has been a barber cutting hair longer than Lance.
Another easy one this week. Where is it and what are your memories?

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.
