Community Art Workshops are back!
The Newtown Community Centre will be hosting another annual series of fun and casual art workshops from September 29th to October 9th!
These workshops give everyone, of any artistic level, the chance to dabble in a wide range of new arts and crafts, and get the creative juices flowing. The workshops are designed and run by local artists, keen to share their craft with others in their community, and are held in the relaxed and welcoming space of the Newtown community centre on Colombo St.
Workshops are all entry by koha, but spaces are limited so registering is essential! To register, call 389 4786 or email your interest!

This month we quiz the Rongotai electorate candidates on what they think the challenges are for our area and how they will address them, as well as get an update from WCC's Cycling Champion on the Cycleway project for Island Bay, Berhampore and Newtown.
Happy reading - and voting!!
