The winter edition of Wellington City Council’s quarterly magazine, Our Wellington - Tō Tātou Pōneke, is being delivered to letterboxes in Wellington this week. 

It will also be available at selected Council venues and facilities across the city.  

It covers the period 16 June to 31 August.  

The edition features stunning cover artwork by artist David Hakaraia, who depicts the moment Tāwhirimātea, the god of the winds, tore out his eyes in anger and scattered them into the heavens, creating the nine stars of Matariki. 

Inside, there is a special star map showing how, when and where to best see the star cluster, plus features highlighting our Matariki ki Pōneke Festival events and performers. 

In this edition we have an illustrated recycling guide that can be cut out and put on your fridge or kept somewhere else handy.  

It has all the recycling dos and don’ts, with details on how to prepare your recycling, and common mistakes to avoid.  

We've also included profiles on one of our Animal Services Team, and the Council’s longest serving staff member, who is coming up to 60 years of working for our city. 

Copies are available at the following 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 St.
