The Mayor's Pick of the Week: Have your say on the city's predator free mahi
We’re doing a survey to get more info on what Wellingtonians think and feel in regard to predator free work currently happening in our city. This info will help the Predator Free Wellington team to understand how they can do more, what they could be doing differently and how they can continue to work better together with Wellingtonians on this important mahi. Better still, have your say and you’ll go in the draw to win one of five $50 New World vouchers! Complete the survey here.
Let us keep the kids busy
There's one week left to go before the school holidays. Why not leave it up to us to entertain the kids? There’s still time to book in to our school holiday programmes and activities at our sport and recreation centres, botanic gardens and pools. See what we’ve got lined up and book now on our website.
Calling all Māori artists
We’re calling for proposals from Māori artists to design a series of flags for the eight flag poles at Frank Kitts Park near Whairepo Lagoon as part of WAITUHI - the Matariki public art series, which is now in its seventh year. For more information, visit our WAITUHI webpage. Proposals are due on Monday 3 May.

Tips to help you get prepared
The Wellington region is an awesome place to live, but it’s a little wild. We often experience earthquakes, storms, flooding and landslides. We’re also at risk from tsunamis. These emergencies have similar impacts. It would be hard to get around, hard to communicate with loved ones and hard to get access to the essentials. See WREMO's Get Prepared website for some things you can do to help your household and community get prepared.
