Martinborough residents urged to conserve water

Amy Wharram from South Wairarapa District Council

Wellington Water have been working on an upgrade to the Martinborough water treatment plant and the work has taken longer than planned. As a result the reservoir is currently running low and we need residents and businesses to urgently conserve water.

We are making urgent repairs to get the plant back online. This means the supply to residents and businesses is limited throughout the town. Water should only be used for drinking, cooking and hygiene.

We ask that you avoid showers and baths, running washing machines and dishwashers, and avoid garden watering.

We thank you from your patience during this time.

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.
