Lots of free office desks (but you need to take lots!)

Caroline from Berhampore

Hi neighbours
We are replacing our current office desks - quite a few (around 30?) They are a decent quality but configured to be used in pods or groups eg 4 desks together, 6 desks together, 12 desks together. They are available for free providing you pick them up (dismantle?) by the end of April.… View more
Hi neighbours
We are replacing our current office desks - quite a few (around 30?) They are a decent quality but configured to be used in pods or groups eg 4 desks together, 6 desks together, 12 desks together. They are available for free providing you pick them up (dismantle?) by the end of April. They must go as groups - they don't work as single desks apart from one pair that go side by side. If anyone is interested in taking blocks of them you are welcome if you take the whole lot. They have cable trays and are white. No photo yet sorry! They are all around 140cm to 160c depending on how we grouped them. Not adjustable, standard height.

This is because watering restrictions have now been eased for Metropolitan Wellington and South Wairarapa 👏

“Community action in limiting water use, paired with the hot summer peak use period coming to an end, means we are confident about removing watering restrictions across the region” says Laurence Edwards, Chief Advisor Drinking Water.

Please continue to be mindful of water use as the rivers, lakes and aquifers recover. 💧

Please remember that alternate day, odds-evens watering still applies in Upper Hutt, and South Wairarapa as it does all year round.

Wellington City Council is moving to eventually gte rid of pokie machines in the city.
Barring any last-minute changes of heart, a Wellington City Council committee will agree to the policy, meaning all existing pokie machine venues can keep operating, but no new permits will be issued and, over time, this will theoretically lead to fewer gambling machines.
The "sinking lid policy" is being driven by Cr Tabatha Paul.
If the eventual drop-off in pokie machines led to community groups getting less funding, Paul said it would be time for the central government to step in.

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.

The owners of popular eatery Monsoon Poon have no plans to change the restaurant’s name, widely interpreted as a reference to female genitalia.
Monsoon Poon’s owners Nicola Richards and Mike Egan (pictured), say there was never any intention for the restaurant’s name to be taken as a derogatory or racist term.
Richards said “at no point” had that been the intention, and it was not how the word was interpreted by the business owners.
“You will find that Poon is a very common Chinese and Korean surname, and we simply thought it worked well with the word ‘monsoon’,” she said.

Wellington City Council is considering a plan to ban cars from the inner city by 2025.
A Notice of Motion by councillor Tamatha Paul is understood to have gained the support of a majority of councillors and will pass at a council meeting on Thursday.
The motion commits the council to pursue a fossil fuel-free centre city and asks for council officers to write a report investigating how the policy could be applied.
While details would be ironed out by council officers, Paul said she hoped for a ban on all private vehicles in key inner-city streets, with only electric delivery vehicles and buses allowed
