Watercare and water leaks

Nova from Henderson

For almost seven months, I have been asking Watercare to fix a potable water leak outside 20 Alderman Drive in Henderson. Today the dams are at 59%. The historical average is 84%.

Today the dams are at 59%. The historical average is 84%. We may have severe water restrictions this summer and yet Watercare doesn't seem to be efficient about fixing leaks. This week I got a text from them saying the leak had been fixed, and yet it is still leaking, possibly creating a pothole in the road and making the footpath slippery. Is the proposed 3 Waters thing going to make a positive difference?

Dear neighbours,

Please meet Alyce Read of Nelson, who uses her houseplant collection to connect with others and help them overcome mental health challenges. "You wouldn’t take a plant and put it in a dark corner and fail to water it and expect it to thrive. So we should look at ourselves that way," she says. "If we are not thriving in the way that we would wish, it might not be any fault of ours, it might be the conditions that we are under."

All it takes is a kind gesture to change someone’s day. From giving flowers to a neighbour ‘just because’ to paying it forward in line at a cafe - this month we’re encouraging our members and supporters to make New Zealand a better place one random act of kindness at a time.

The options for doing so are endless! Being kind doesn’t have to cost a thing, after all a smile is free. For those who want to go the extra mile, here’s some other ideas: take a gift over to new neighbours and introduce yourself, build a free community library for your street, buy extra kai at the grocery store to donate to a food bank, bring treats into work for colleagues, send an encouraging text to someone who needs it, let a car into the traffic ahead of you, write positive messages in chalk on sidewalks around your neighbourhood, or surprise loved ones with a visit.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re spreading kindness this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to:
