Being one of a few people who attended the open consultation process of the local council's 10 year plan I was very concerned about the proposed water take over by Government probably by the end of this year giving very little time for all councils to discuss this matter with the public. Full details have not yet been presented to Councils. This will cover water to your property. Grey wastewater and also storm water. So think of what is happened with Health Boards and the many problems there. This could be the future of your water. You will all be paying rates directly to a yet faceless organisation. You will be forced to accept fluoride whether it is good or not !!? If Government forced companies to greatly reduce sugar contents in drinks and food then there will not be so many teeth problems. I am doing my bit now do yours . Spread the word NO to Government controlling our water.
It is said dancing is good for your health because it exercises your brain as well as your body. Anyone from under 5 years to over 80 years can enjoy dancing. Hawera is way behind other towns such as Stratford New Plymouth Whanganui in having an active dancing circle so I am hoping this message will help Maria get a regular dancing group going. Ballroom Latin Rock n roll or ? Monday evenings. Have you danced before or never danced. You are most welcome to come along. Single or partnered. Contact Maria on 0277171749
