Are you bothered by the wattle pollen?

Reporter Marlborough Express

Picton resident Barbara Speedy says wattle pollen is a "big health issue", and asked Marlborough council candidates if they'd eradicate wattle trees.

She says that the wattle population had got worse over the decades, from just a few trees to "hills of yellow".

Are the wattle trees making your hayfever worse? Do you want the council to do something about them?

Fire danger closes Wither Hills tracks

The Team from Marlborough District Council

Most tracks in the Wither Hills Farm Park, including the Mountain Bike Park have been closed due to the current very high to extreme fire risk conditions.

Walkers and runners are asked to stay on the lower tracks, and not to venture up the gullies or ridge paths.

Cyclists are asked to avoid the Mountain Bike Park as this area would be particularly dangerous in the event of a fire.

Signs advising of the track closures have been installed at the Farm Park. The closure of these areas will apply at all times of the day.

Church Restoration

Tom from Property Maintenance Marlborough

My first post shows some before and after photos of a grand old wooden church which opened in 1866. I was contracted to remove the many years of paint from the internal walls and windows and paint the ceiling, gloss the windows and oil the walls. It was a challenging job, that became a labour of love, but the end results are truely stunning.
