Newtown News contributors

If you live in or love Newtown, you could be a contributor to the Newtown News, our little zine for Newtown, by Newtowners. We’re always looking for casual writers and artists for this free publication. Email us if you’re interested in being added to the contributors list – you’ll get an email each month with the theme, asking if you’re interested in contributing.

Newtown News deliverers

We distribute around 750 copies of the Newtown News around the suburb each month, so if you’re a keen walker, get in touch! You could deliver your own road, or do a longer trip and explore Newtown – whatever works for your schedule. Contact us if you’re interested.

Newtown Tool Librarians

If you love tools and DIY and are available on occasional Wednesdays 5-7pm or Saturdays 11am-1pm, you could join our Tool Library as a Tool Librarian! Helping our community save money and reduce waste – by fixing things AND by not buying unnecessary tools.

Newtown Tool Library ad-hoc volunteers

Can’t make the dates/times above but support the kaupapa of the Tool Library? We run occasional working bees at different times to do odd jobs around the Tool Library – e.g. going through donated tools, repairing broken tools etc. Contact us if you’re interested.

Wellington Timebank

Timebankers are NOT traditional volunteers, but it’s an awesome way to make an impact in your community. Individuals and community organisations post offers and requests for skills on the Timebank’s online platform and you can respond, offering your time in exchange for time credits – which you can then use in exchange for others’ skills!
