Ford vs Holden Day returns to Tui Brewery on 30 August

Piers Fuller Reporter from News of Wairarapa

Ford and Holden fans can start their engines, with the return of the Ford vs Holden Day to Tui Brewery planned for Sunday 30th August. This will be the second of five car and bike shows taking place as part of the 2020 Mangatainoka Motors Show & Shine series from July through to November.
Spectators can expect to see Holden and Ford lovers go head to head, putting their wheels on show for an epic day out, under the Tui Tower. This will be the third time that Mangatainoka Motors have featured Ford vs Holden Day, and it’s by far its most popular of the series. In 2019 a mammoth 380 vehicles travelled from all over the north island to be part of it, with hundreds more people coming to check out the range of vehicles on display.
Event organiser Kate Steminger said “We’re thrilled to have the Toki Motors Show & Shine events back underway, after delaying them due to COVID, and Ford vs Holden will be the best one yet. We’re optimistic that we’ll be back in Level 1 by the time this event is due to take place, so at this stage, we’re forging ahead with our plans, and can’t wait to welcome people from near and far to put their rides on show for another epic day out.”
Ford and Holden car and bike enthusiasts can register their wheels for just $10. Spectators are also very welcome, with free entry and live music on offer, along with great food, beer and other refreshments available for all.
Tui Brewery will put all proceeds from registrations towards the show’s regular beneficiary, the Mangatainoka Reserve Restoration Project.

Do you support getting rid of feral cats?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

An online backlash against a competition encouraging people to kill feral cats has resulted in the plan being cancelled.
A social media post by animal welfare group HUHA New Zealand with a picture of a Fish & Game ad promoting its “Lake Wairarapa Cat Comp” asked people “So how does this make you feel?”
The competition encouraged hunters to “cull” the cats, which could not be easily trapped, take a picture, send it to Fish & Game and be in to win a prize.
Fish and Game have apologised but asked hunters to continue help curb feral cat numbers,
