Hi Marlborough,

What's your opinion on the Cape Campbell lighthouse renovations?

Cape Campbell lighthouse is getting its regular face lift, with 20 tonnes of scaffolding erected around the 18-metre high structure.

The 116-year-old structure was last renovated in 2005, with Maritime New Zealand saying restoration work is usually undertaken every 12 to 15 years.

“Compared to a lot of our sites which are located on islands, Cape Campbell is an easier location because you can drive to it. But it is also a challenging site because it is on the coast, and it is exposed to high winds,” they said.

While there are risks involved with working on the structure, Scaffold Marlborough owner Rob Hellstrom says that all scaffolding needs to be free standing, in order for it not to interfere with the historic landmark. It took less than two weeks to set up the nine levels of scaffolding.

"The team wear safety harnesses with double lanyards, so they can walk around being attached all the time,” Hellstrom said.

Restoration is expected to take between six to eight weeks.

This year's event runs from March 20 - 30th with the theme being 'The Great Plant Swap' as an easy way for neighbourhoods to grow stronger together.

Here's some ideas for ways you could get involved:

• swap seeds with a neighbour
• gift a plant you've grown to a neighbour
• take some flowers to a neighbour
• organise a produce swap
• share garden tips or recipes for food in season
• create community gardens or berm pollinator pathways
• host an inclusive garden-themed working bee
• a friendly neighbourhood BBQ with homegrown ingredients

The options are endless! At the end of the day, our shared aim is to help bring people together by encouraging intentional connection with our neighbours. Whether that be organising a street party, sharing a cuppa, or simply saying ‘Kia Ora!” to those who live around you, every action helps to create a safer and more connected New Zealand.

Have you experienced online or Facebook bullying?

The Team Reporter from Marlborough Express

A local couple who entered a competition were attacked online after posting to seek support from family and friends for their entry. What do you think should be done about this kind of bullying? Should Facebook moderate posts more?
