Amy Wharram from South Wairarapa District Council

South Wairarapa District Council and the Wairarapa Whanau Trust are working in collaboration on an employment initiative with the focus on people living in the South Wairarapa who are looking for work.

We recognise there are industries that have had to reduce staff, we are also aware that some industries are needing extra staff to cover business commitments and deadlines.

We are committed to working with local businesses, SMEs and those looking for work to provide effective solutions wherever we can.

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.

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week we feature Thomas the tūī and a lovely picture and words from by Simon Woolf.

"This is our spring friend, Thomas the tūī , enjoying nectar from a kowhai tree my sister gave us as a present over 20 years ago! The kowhai is such a feature in our garden, having been replanted as a small tree, which hadn't as yet flowered, from our first home in Standen St. Thanks heaps Deb."
