Please see below a message just to hand from Jenny Gasson Event Manager Wings Over Wairarapa:

Tonight (Saturday, 27 February 2021) the Prime Minister announced an alert level change. Auckland is to Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country to Alert Level 2.

As a result of this, The Board of Wings over Wairarapa has made the difficult decision to cancel Sunday’s air show

Our team is absolutely gutted, especially after an amazing day today, but your health and safety, and the health and safety of our volunteers, crew and pilots is paramount. We are also following Government and Ministry of Health guidelines

As per previous information we have shared with you, the Wings team will be in contact with all ticket holders for Sunday’s airshow regarding refunds.

Sunday 17th January sees Lambton Quay closed off - as for the time in 10 years - the New Zealand Cycle Classic is being held in Wellington. And there’s a wheely fun event so you can get involved in the race too.
With roads closed off to traffic on Sunday, 17 January 2021, Cycle the Golden Mile is an opportunity for cyclists of all ages and abilities, and on all styles of bikes, to ride along Lambton Quay.
There is a fun Kid’s Criterium, a Celebrity Criterium featuring a who’s who of Wellington’s leading figures and two races for club riders.

Afterwards, line the Quay and soak up the festive atmosphere as New Zealand’s elite road cyclists race the fifth and final stage of the UCI 2.2 New Zealand Cycle Classic. This will be a thrilling Criterium held on the same city streets followed by the presentation of the coveted Yellow Jersey to the Tour winner and overall classification jerseys from the previous four days of racing in Wairarapa.
