Nadine from Wallaceville - Whitemans Valley

Does anyone have off cuts of wediboard (blue and grey very light waterproof board used to line bathrooms before tiling) they are throwing out? Very good backing for mosaics. Not sure what it’s called in NZ and only came across it when I lived in UK but hoping someone knows what it’s called here and better still, had some they are throwing away.

Lee from South Wairarapa District

Neko Ngeru Cat Adoption Café in Petone is a wonderful place to visit if you love our feline friends. Its run by Richelle and Ken who love to help cats – and cat rescues – by running this café to find loving homes for them. Several rescues, including KittyCat Rehoming Wairarapa, send some of their rescues to Neko Ngeru to be adopted. The amazing thing about Ken and Richelle is that they give rescues their full adoption fee so we’re not out of pocket. They charge a fee to enter the cat room at the café so you can spend time with their adorable kitties. They also sell beautiful quality merchandise – for cats and people mad about them – at the café. Their cat room is open to adults and children 8 years and over.
Check out their Facebook page or their website

Or if you’re not online call them on 04 589 2287.

We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.
