Auditions to be held at the Carterton Courthouse, Holloway Street on Tuesday 17th December at 7.30pm. First time and well seasoned actors are equally welcome.

For those thespians with too little time to learn lines and attend rehearsals several times a week, we think that “Love Letters” by A R Gurney is the ideal type of play – no lines to learn and very few rehearsals. We will require one male and one female aged from mid-40s upwards, who can display excellent timing and characterisation and be versatile enough to make swift changes in vocal and facial expression.

There will be 6 or 7 performances over the 2 weeks 8 – 22 March 2020. If you are interested but are unable to make the auditions please contact Margaret Jesson: info@limelight.org.nz

Recommendation for supply/service of household backup generator

Kevin from Martinborough

Can anyone recommend a local business that can supply, and more importantly regularly service, a backup generator for home?
We’re not looking for anything big; probably 3000W+ inverter for the water pump etc when the power goes out.
There’s plenty of generators available for mail order over … View more

We’re not looking for anything big; probably 3000W+ inverter for the water pump etc when the power goes out.
There’s plenty of generators available for mail order over the internet but I’m keen to get something that can be regularly serviced locally (so that it’s going to work when we really need it).

#White #Island #Speaks and we #Weep

Maree from Carterton District

This is a quote form my book- The Mind Mechanic- that came into my head after hearing of the eruption..
I felt could not be more fitting as we all process this devastation from the eruption of White Island.
"Whatia te iti kahurangi, ki te tuohu koe me he maunga teitei"

See the treasures… View more

See the treasures you value most dearly,and if you must bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain".

South Wairarapa Mayor Alex Beijen is urging the community to immediately cease using water outside and to conserve water generally.

“On Monday evening, the pump on the township’s low-manganese bore faulted and is being urgently replaced. With no water being pumped the water reservoir reserves are going down."

Mayor Beijen said he had been advised that installing the spare pump could be done within a day, but until the reservoir levels have recovered and we know the replacement pump is working well, we must conserve water.

“It’s essential that the community immediately responds to this pressing need to conserve water. If the township uses more water than we can supply from the low-manganese bore, we will have to use the other bores as well. That could mean the town’s drinking water becoming discoloured.

“Although safe to drink, the water could lose its clarity due to the reaction between manganese and chlorine – we want to avoid discoloured water if we can.

“We’re addressing infrastructure replacement as fast as possible, and this is unfortunate timing of an equipment failure,” said Mayor Beijen.

Information on how to conserve water will be shared throughout the community – you can find out more at www.wellingtonwater.co.nz...

“We will update the community when more information is available,” Mr Beijen said.
