Dog Owners Beware! DO NOT walk up the Maitai this morning - Thursday 16th September

Paul & Marie from Maitai

I spoke with the Nelmac spraying team this morning. They are out spraying Roundup around the trees in the Maitai. I asked if the spray is harmful to our dogs and was told it is harmful for 2-3 hours 🙁 Please avoid this area this morning if you are walking your dogs. I am really angry that … View moreI spoke with the Nelmac spraying team this morning. They are out spraying Roundup around the trees in the Maitai. I asked if the spray is harmful to our dogs and was told it is harmful for 2-3 hours 🙁 Please avoid this area this morning if you are walking your dogs. I am really angry that there is no signage left out warning us. One of the two employees I spoke with told me they are a dog owner, is only doing their job and to phone the council 🙁 (The white sign in the picture was being carried rather than left on the footpath).


Update...spoke to Nelmac who were really helpful and expressed surprise that there was no signage. They assured me they will be investigating immediately.

Nelson ratepayers may wish to sign the petition "Nelson City Council : 3 Waters Issues" as to whether or not Council will decide to sell-off our water assets to government.

These assets are valued at $685M and Minister Mahuta has offered $20M in compensation.

So far 40 Councils out of 67 have said NO to Government - and so should Nelson City Council.

You can help convince Council by adding your name.

The goal is to reach 500 signatures and your support is needed.
Let every Nelson ratepayer know.

You can read more and SIGN THE PETITION here:

Free common rushes

Giles from Richmond

I have 4 large clumps of these rushes I am replacing, Juncus is the Genus I believe. They grew well under my house eaves where nw facing and very dry although I think they would suit and look better with less brown stems in less dry conditions. Very hardy and drought proof.
