Hi all!

Please find attached the first edition of Newtown News! Apologies if this scanned copy is a little difficult to read, but printed copies can be found at the cafes of any of our three wonderful local sponsors: Baobab Cafe, Peoples Coffee and Pranah Cafe.

Hope you enjoy the read, and please feel free to get back to us with any comments or suggestions. The second edition will be out at the end of June (and hopefully with a brand new look!)

Thanks all,
Anna and Becky

Liquour Control Bylaw – Liquor Ban

The “Proposal to amend the Liquor Control Bylaw” as prepared by Wellington City Council and applying to Newtown, Mt Cook and Berhampore and/or the wider city is open to submissions.

The Newtown Residents’ Assn at its last meeting agreed to support a liquor ban for Mt Cook, Newtown and Berhampore. This was on the understanding that a city-wide ban would be supported if that had the support of those communities.

Submissions close at 5pm on Wednesday (TOMORROW) 5 May 2010.
