Residents of Featherston and Greytown - please continue to conserve water this morning. Every effort to conserve helps us to restore the reservoir level to a point where we have enough water to flush Featherston's network (it's not there yet).

The Boil Water Notice in Featherston will stay in place until further notice, which means after the network has been flushed and water testing and Regional Pubic Health confirm it can be lifted. The team is meeting this morning and we'll provide another update later today, as soon as we can.

There is NO Boil Water Notice in Greytown but residents there need to conserve water as the towns share a treatment plant.

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.

The Pet of the Day will no longer be appearing in the Dominion Post and instead you will find it on Neighbourly every Saturday.
