We’ve made some changes to our Grants Policy

We want to give more certainty to community groups for activities that align well with our community outcomes and from next financial year propose to enter into partnership arrangements for multi-year or operational funding.

This will also make it clear the amount of grant budget that has been allocated to such arrangements and how much contestable funds remain for other applications.

Other changes to the policy include amendments to the eligibility and assessment criteria so that we can support those causes most important to us and bringing Community Board and Māori Standing Committee grants together under the one policy.

Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.

Poll: Should Wellington Zoo replace its Lions?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington Zoo’s elderly lioness sisters, Djane and Zahra, have been euthanised, leaving the zoo with no lions.

Wellington Zoo’s elderly lioness sisters, Djane and Zahra, have been euthanised, leaving the zoo with no lions.
Both lionesses had been closely monitored by veterinary staff over the past 18 months due to age-related health concerns, and Djane’s health recently deteriorated.
Lions have been part of Wellington Zoo community since it opened in 1906, when the Zoo was gifted a male lion called King Dick.
Wellington Zoo said it would look at starting a new pride of lions in the future, but it was likely to be awhile until a firm plan was in place.
