The state of Newtown Streets
Residents are unhappy about the state of our streets and think that the contractors could do a better job. A recent audit of the amount of rubbish and disrepair listed many problems. The Association Secretary agreed to write a letter to the WCC about the concerns.
The Newtown Festival has been nominated for a Wellington Airport Regional Community Award (Heritage and Environment Category) in recognition of the work James Coyle and the rest of the recycling steering group and the volunteers put into recycling at the Street Fair this year. The hope is to inspire other events to increase recycling efforts. This could include permanent recycling stations on our streets.
Celebrate Newtown: this aspect of the Newtown Festival will run through February to late March 2016. The Festival Committee are inviting people to think of events to run during this time, that can be added to the programme. If you have proposals, please contact us.
