"Woburn" falcon

Louise from Woburn

Did you guys know there is a super cool New Zealand falcon, aka kārearea, that hangs around Woburn? I quite often see him flying down Woburn Road and snacking on little birds in Ludlam Park or the Hutt Rec. I'm so glad this rare endemic species is officially listed as "recovering", we are very lucky that some live in the Hutt. A magnificent bird.

Poll: Should Aayla be allowed to play?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A team of keen young Petone rugby league players will forfeit their points and risk disqualifying themselves in an upcoming tournament because one of their star players is banned.
The reason? She’s a girl. Aayla Toman, 13, has been told she’s not allowed to play in the u13 boys’ grade in Wellington’s Pacific Youth Cup because of her gender – something that led her club team, the u13 Petone Panthers, to play her ‘illegally’ all season.
New Zealand Rugby League rules state the maximum age for males and females to play in mixed gender full contact rugby league is 12 years of age.
