Wellington City Council is saving a much-loved Worser Bay tree swing from the chop following requests from the local community. The tree with the swing is in a set of around 30 pine and macrocarpa trees on the corner of Awa and Karaka Bay roads that were to be felled from Friday because of storm damage and bank stability issues. Council tree specialist William Melville says when the area’s community was informed of the felling, several people responded to ask that the swing be saved. “Fortunately, the tree with the swing can

be left on its own and will be monitored in to the future, which is great news for the area’s children,” William says. “While it’ll be sad to see the loss of these grand trees, we’ll be replanting the area with native vegetation.” The project is expected to take three weeks over Monday to Friday, 7.30am5.30pm, weather permitting. The surrounding park will be closed to the public during the works and minor traffic restrictions will be in place. All wood will be removed from site and sold to recover costs on the project.

LETTERS to the editor

Continued from page 6.

Postal pick-up times serve company, not people Dear Editor, Hector W. has only just become aware of the changing public postal box pick-up times. Surely through his previous banking career he would have known that it suits the company’s needs - not the public hence the petition, while the very Reverend Christine supports his self-grandiose leanings.

Meanwhile the astute Kilbirnie Wu women and Newtown still wonder Where is our local MP what’s his name in response to Kiwibank’s Newtown branch closure? Did “What’s his name” get left behind at Waitangi and can’t find his own way back? Martin Beck, Mornington
