WELLINGTON WATER UPDATE 10.30am
Thanks again to Martinborough residents! Your conservation efforts yesterday have been incredibly helpful!
While we have made great progress, we do ask that you continue to be mindful of your water use throughout the weekend to ensure the reservoir has the opportunity to refill. You can do your part to love every drop!
Also remember garden watering restrictions are in place (you can only water your garden on odd days if you live at an odd address, and even days if you live at an even address).
Who recognises this famous photo from the Stuff archives?
Hint: It has come to represent a pivotal moment in New Zealand history.
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 this week is a British shorthair, Zsa Zsa.
Owner Dawn Kelly says Zsa Zsa has not been well and she would love her to have her 15 minutes of fame.
The Pet of the Day will no longer be appearing in the Dominion Post and instead you will find it on Neighbourly every Saturday.
