Hi Neighbours,
I am trying to use this site to get a message to people in Masterton to quote for some work and who may be able to help me with clearing my street frontage. It is about 60 metres long and about 9 metres wide/deep. Pic's attached. Need the site cleared and vegetation taken away.
So how do I post for this on the Masterton Neighbourly site.
Any suggestions would be welcomed.
Thanks

Banishing The Sun

Michael from Trentham

Why would you buy a property in the sun-soaked Wallaceville Estate area and then go to all the trouble to slowly but surely construct a huge solid timber sun shelter the entire length of the side of a house and taking up most of a former lawn/garden area of a lawn-sparse property?

Well, the … View more

Well, the householders in this property of significant contrasting ages are not sunworshippers as they are all fully decked out clothes-wise all summer long.

Reminds me of an old Yiddish proberb: Men don't build on strange ground.

Christmas with Grandad

Colleen Hawkes Reporter from Homed

It's that time of year - we all get a little nostalgic for Christmas' past. My grandad wasn't exactly the Grinch Who Stole Christmas, but he sure wanted it over and done with. Would love to hear your reminisces.

Why Two Vacs Not Valid

Michael from Trentham

NZ has hit more than 90% of people over 12 being vaccinated twice - 95% in Wellington, 90% in Hutt Valley. But it is not good enough.

NZ has hit more than 90% of people over 12 being vaccinated twice - 95% in Wellington, 90% in Hutt Valley. But it is not good enough.

Omicron is aggressively spreading in many countries and children aged 5-11 are being vaccinated in many countries. For NZ, Omicron will hit us hard but hopefully not as hard as in some other countries. The 400,000 children aged 5-11 here will not start a measure of Pfizer
vaccine until January 17 and there will be a lot of resistance.

People aged over 12 in NZ will need a third Pfizer vaccine -AND A FOURTH - probably within a year of having received their first vaccine.

Israel, to whom the Pfizer vaccine became available months before it arrived in NZ, have had over 4 million of its people with a third jab and to date NZ is at around 140,000. But here is the deal - Israel says in the short term, a fourth jab is now needed as well in a bid to outpace the variants of Covid especially the skyrocketing Omicron.

And who knows what else is awakened as a branch out of Covid but the chances of more variants are higher than a cessation.

Name Game For Unborn Cafe

Michael from Trentham

Got to get this off my mind. It's a plea to whoever takes on opening a cafe in the Blue Mountains Campus, Wallaceville 12 months from now.

If indeed a public cafe is installed as expected, it will occupy part of the ground floor of the four storey Buddle House.

So here is the name for it:

Kittens are supposed to sleep for 18 to 20 hours a day....I think Sam needs a new clock as he never sleeps anywhere close to this and seems to spends all day running round at top speed!"

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Tatiana

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tatiana was a really timid girl who has really come out of her shell since finding a new home courtesy of the SPCA.

Tatiana was a really timid girl who has really come out of her shell since finding a new home courtesy of the SPCA.
"You might be as shocked and as surprised as I am to know how well Tatiana is doing already. She's out of her box most of the time and is now running to me when I call her for lots of headbutts and head rubs. She's very chatty and is becoming comfortable walking around, exploring the house, and sitting on the windowsills and watching the world already. I chose the right cat, she's quite a character and is actually quite a brave, young lady."

Upper Hutt has joined the rest of the country and is now requiring vaccine passes for its buildings. A confirmed Covid-19 case in the Hutt Valley has led to the council reversing its controversial decision not to use vaccine passes for most council facilities, including libraries.
“Given this [case] and the high transmission rate of the Delta strain, we have made the decision to change the settings at our public facilities, moving to more restrictive settings,” the council said in a statement.
Mayor Wayne Guppy is urging everybody to wear masks and follow the guidelines on wearing masks.
