Newtown Neighbours’ Night hosted by the Newtown Residents’ Association has been postponed – the Memorial Service for the victims of the Christchurch atrocity is on Friday 29thand its not the right time for it to go ahead. This is also the advice from the Police and Wellington City Council. At some future time the Association will again invite all our Newtown Neighbours to come and join us for a get-together with fun and food.
