Bring Mock Exams and Study Leave Back

 The decision to cancel mock examinations and study leave at Westlake Girls High School was one made without the input of the student body- the people that this decision effects the most. The value of practice examinations and study leave is monumentally more than that of only two more weeks of teaching time. This decision should be altered if the student body wishes it so. In this current climate, where there is so much uncertainty having our practice examinations is vital. Considering that man

SeaLink continued services to Port Fitzroy, Great Barrier Island

The residents of Port Fitzroy and the surrounding areas of north Great Barrier Island have been formally informed by the North Barrier Residents and Ratepayers Association that after Easter 2020 SeaLink will no longer bring freight or passengers to the Port Fitzroy Wharf. If SeaLink discontinues  passenger and freight services to Port Fitzroy and makes Tryphena the only stop on Great Barrier Island, our northern Barrier communities will suffer both personally and financially.  In fact, it has th

Bring ALDI supermarkets to New Zealand!

I've started this petition to get Aldi to open up shops in NZ. After returning from Australia where I discovered and fell in love with Aldi for the first time. I was so impressed with the affordability, quality and range of food, clothing, house wear etc.I belive to make it more affordable for NZ consumers the supermarkets need more competition - Aldi is the answer to this and I feel it would be hugely popular here in NZ.I really belive there is a need and a market for this chain of supermarket

Let butchers open during the lockdown

Many people including myself buy their meat at independent butchers rather than the supermarket. Now the butchers have been told they have to close as they are 'non-essential'.  We, the signers of this petition, disagree. It is unfair and makes no sense. A dairy and a greengrocer can open but a butcher next door cannot. Supermarkets shouldn't be given a monopoly on the sale of meat. See also: Coronavirus: Piles of meat to be given away, thrown out after butchers told they're not an 'essential bu

CAP SOUTH WAIRARAPA DISTRICT RATE RISES TO 2% FOR THREE YEARS

South Wairarapa District Council (SWDC) consultation documents create an impression that the SWDC is raising rates by only 2%. That is not the case. The Council plans to increase its annual operating expenditure by 18% for next year – see page 24 of Council’s supporting information for consultation. There is smoke and mirrors around the figures but it is clear that rates will rise over the longer term from Council’s proposals this year by at least 13%, and likely more especially if the Greytown

Bring Missy Elliot to Friday Jams Live NZ 2020

It's worth a shot so I'll give it a go. With three successful Friday Jams Live concerts so far, every year I hope this Queen comes but nothing so far. I've been a diehard fan since she started, would love to see her grace our New Zealand stage to be the final showstopper for the evening at Friday Jams Live 2020. So share, sign, everything and hopefully someone who knows her will see this and let her know 😉🤣 Dreams are free 👌🏽

Petition to Ban Single-use Plastic Straws at McDonald’s

"Plastic straws and other single-use plastics are a non-essential part of our life. Yet, they cause so much damage to the environment," Get Green Now states. "The degrading of plastic could release chemicals that are toxic to wildlife and the environment." Plastic straws are polluting the environment and is having a very negative effect on marine life. Turtles have been found with plastic straws stuck in their nose. In a country of 4 million people, New Zealanders use 540 million plastic straws

Stop the Cut to Library Funding

Thames-Coromandel council pushes pause on library book spend to reduce 10 per cent rates rise. It means the budget for Thames Library will reduce from $83,193 to $8,319; $34,074 to $3,407 for Mercury Bay; and $9,829 to $983 for Tairua Library.   The remaining 10 per cent will be used to replace key books that may not be able to be repaired during the year. Council's operations group manager Bruce Hinson said Covid-19 meant that life could not continue as normal, and changes had to be made in man
