Summer edition

The summer edition of Our Wellington - Tō Tātou Pōneke covers the period 1 December 2021 to 31 March 2022.

In this issue we celebrate our people. Wellington City Council is made up of hundreds of passionate staff who help ensure our capital is a safe, inclusive, and vibrant place to live, work and play, across the nearly 400 services we provide.

We highlight some of our team members, who explain why they love their jobs and the joy they get from serving our city. We also meet local artist Telly Tuita who is brightening up Pōneke, and city housing tenant Anita Olsen, one of our fruit tree guardians.

We give an update on where we are at with the designs for Te Matapihi ki te Ao Nui (the Central Library) and Te Ngākau Civic Precinct, and we launch Street Smart, a series that showcases interesting facts and stories about streets across the capital.

The magazine also has some tips for making summer gatherings more playful, and some green and affordable gift ideas.

Copies of Our Wellington - Tō Tātou Pōneke are also available at the following Council sites: Te Awe Library, Arapaki Service Centre, Waitohi Community Hub, Tawa Library, Newtown Library, ASB Sports Centre, Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre, and the Wellington I-SITE on Wakefield Street.
