traffic

Ron from Greenmeadows

Went for a 25 minute walk on Sunday along Guppy Rd between Tait Drive and Cornwall Rd and counted 60 vehicles. Slower walk of 33 minutes on Tuesday resulted in a count of 84 vehicles and on both days many had 2 or more passengers. It would appear that many folk are just ignoring the common sense advice. Anyone else noticed the volume of traffic seems high given the circumstances?

Wild apple trees

Robert from Poraiti

Hi I am starting a project of trying to protect wild seedling apple trees or ones that may be growing that don’t get any attention and trying to protect our heritage varieties around the Hawke’s bay. If anyone knows of any apple trees that they have been found on walks or farms or properties or old orchards that are neglected that could be grafted and helped to keep going. Please I would really like to know and try to protect these. I would appreciate any help. And if you could pass on to friends and others around our district that would be great. Thanks lots.
