Jet over the west of Greytown (Woodside area)

Neil and Greg from Greytown

Hi, just wondered if anybody knew about the jet which was doing loops and stuff over the farmland between Greytown and Woodside. Quite enjoyable to watch if not a little breath taking at times. Was so low but no identifiable markings so we don't think it was RNZAF but perhaps a private … View moreHi, just wondered if anybody knew about the jet which was doing loops and stuff over the farmland between Greytown and Woodside.

Trick or treating: Love it or hate it

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?
And If you don't like… View more
Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?
And If you don't like trick or treating, how do you make it clear your house is a no-go zone?

We're keen to talk to some people who feel strongly about Halloween one way or the other. If you have thoughts to share, please email homed@stuff.co.nz and we'll be in touch.

Radiography staff are preparing to strike again next week for a third time.
Striking will include both full and partial withdrawal of labour and is scheduled to take place from Tuesday 29 th October to Monday 4 th November. It will not affect ultrasound services.
Wairarapa District Health Board has detailed plans in place to ensure it can continue to provide the best possible care for the Wairarapa community during the strikes.
A small number of imaging staff will provide a limited service for patients to meet urgent need. X- rays for acute emergency and ward inpatients, and acute GP referrals will be available.
“We have skeleton-staff rosters in place to manage any urgent need during the strikes,” Chief Medical Officer, Shawn Sturland said.
“Together with the union we are organising on call cover for urgent CT scanning, as per life preserving services requirements.”
“Patient appointments have had to be rescheduled,” Shawn said. “While it is unavoidable, we know this is extremely inconvenient for people waiting, and we do apologise for that.”
“Some elective surgeries have also been rescheduled.”
“We are doing all we can to minimise the impact of the strikes on our patients,” he said.
“Strike activity puts people and systems under pressure and we are grateful for the hard work being put in by the planning team, and for the continued support of our staff.”
