SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Max

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Max is looking for a home.

"I was an unplanned pregnancy and brought to the SPCA to find a home.
I may look like a typical wild rabbit, but I can assure you I am not. My Mum was a domestic rabbit and super sweet. I am good with people I know, and am still young and still learning. I have an inquisitive nature and would love a home with people who will have me around them, either as a solely indoor rabbit, or mostly indoors. I will need a large outdoor area with a weatherproof hutch or shelter for days when the weather is nice. I will need to be inside as part of the family at night, so a hutch or area inside with you is important. I would also like a female rabbit for company, so if you have a lonely rabbit maybe we could be friends?

Thursday 22nd April Public Motorcycle Ride #2

Wally from Carterton District

This ride is known as 'Round the Block', leaving from Memorial Square Carterton. Ride briefing is at 9.50am, stands up at 10am.
For continuity of riding, corner marking is an important part of the ride and will be explained at ride briefing.
Riders are expected to travel at a pace they are comfortable with. This is not a Targa type speed event, and, aside from mechanical issues, it's about enjoying the company and the ride.
Total distance is approximately 315kms, taking 4 3/4hrs plus stops and lunch (estimated at 6hrs total). Lunch is planned for Shannon in the Horowhenua. The stops are to allow all riders to regroup if spread out.
There will opportunities for time constrained riders to break off at these stops and return home to their other duties.
See you there at Memorial Square, with full tanks, correct tyre pressures, lubed chains and let's go have some fun.
