Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Some supernatural help has been hired in the hope customers and staff at the Resene shop in Cambridge will one day be able to see their favourite furry face again.

Timmy, a handsome 4-year-old tabby, disappeared one weekend in August from his cat house at the rear of the premises. Customer Paul Norfolk and wife Gloria had looked all over town for their favourite store cat, along with the shop’s manager, Kerry Mason, and her staff.

“Timmy is such an icon around Cambridge, everyone knows him as the Resene cat,” Gloria said.

We are seeking volunteers to marshal along Upper Belvedere Road and Fensham Reserve. If you have a spare few hours in the morning of Saturday 21 November, and would like to contribute to this exciting new opportunity to get young people active, please email: kiaora@createasplash.co.nz.

SPLASH is fully committed to safeguarding the welfare of all children in its care. Staff and volunteers will work together to respect the rights of children and young people. Volunteers may be asked to be police vetted.

WAITRI 2020

The Kids WAITRI is a new multi-sports event that aims to get kids active by bringing the experience of gaming off the sofa and into the bush and the paddock.

It introduces kids to triathlon and adventure racing, but has a unique twist. The event also includes paintball as one of the event disciplines, so kids get to combine their gaming skills with biking and running.

No other event in New Zealand or in the world right now, can offer this activity as part of a kids multi-sport race. The event also gives kids an opportunity to be part of the replenishment and sustainability of the environment by making a valuable contribution to the conservation of Fensham Reserve.

There is a short course for kids, aged 5-7 years old, which will take place in the surrounding paddocks at Borderlandz Paintball, and a more challenging course for kids aged 8-17 years old, which includes two 3.5km mountain bike legs along a traffic-managed Upper Belvedere Road and a marshalled 2.5km trail run around the Fensham Reserve circuit.

The cost is $15 for 5-7 years old (or $10 for the first 25 registrations) and $25 for 8-17 years old (or $20 for the first 25 registrations). Numbers are limited in each category.

Don't have a bike? Please get in touch and we may be able to source one for you.
