Naenae pool plans unveiled

Jamie Dobson from Hutt City Council

The first look at the proposed design for the Naenae Pool and Fitness suite is here!

Before we get into detailed design and begin construction, we want to check in with everyone who will be using the pool to make sure we're delivering the best facility possible – for Naenae and Te Awakairangi.
In this draft design, you'll notice features that reflect what the community and aquatic sports users told us they wanted. We're;

πŸŠβ€β™‚οΈ Keeping the 50-metre pool;

πŸŽ‰ making sure the facility is a place for birthdays, special occasions, and the building is accessible; and

🌴 moving the site position in Walter Mildenhall park to better connect it with Hillary Court.

This is your chance to give feedback so we can ensure this plan for the pool reflects your needs! Let us know what you think πŸ‘‡

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Chewie the rabbit

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

"I came into SPCA with a damaged eye beyond repair. The wonderful vet team couldn't save it, so I had an operation to have it removed. It hasn't slowed me down at all, you just have to be aware that I can’t see you approaching me so please don't startle me.
I would love to be a single indoor bunny where I get all the human attention. I am a clean boy and will go into my large litter tray for toileting. I love gentle pats on my head and sometimes come up to you for treats. I regularly binkie around super fast, and when I'm tired I do bunny flops as I am a happy boy.
I love space and the outdoors so I will need a large grassy area with a weatherproof hutch for outside during the day. My indoor area must be big enough for me to spend the day and night comfortably. My caregivers ask that rabbits always come inside at night, to be part of the family and to keep me safe.
I could go to a home with friendly cats as I've met some before."
