Only 3 or 4 more sleeps to go - depending on which day you choose!! As well as the 13 glorious gardens we have a variety of plant and garden related stalls at the hall as well as an amazing raffle with 12 prizes donated by local businesses, the first being a $250 hamper from Ruth Pretty! Although we would like you to, you don't have to go on the garden tour to pop into the Te Horo Hall on School Road, browse the stalls, buy a Christmas present or two, a raffle ticket and have a coffee and scone in our cafe. Whatever you choose to do you'll be supporting the earthquake strengthening of the Te Horo Hall. Bring cash as not all stalls will have eftpos and it will be quicker when purchasing your Garden tickets, although I know a lot of you have already bought them, so you can plan your route in advance and get straight into the gardens!!

FEATHERSTON & GREYTOWN
After a planned water shutdown to install new treatment equipment for Greytown's Memorial Park bore yesterday, we were restoring supply when a power cut occurred.
The power cut affected the Waiohine Treatment plant, which supplies water to both Greytown and Featherston. The Waiohine reservoirs were already quite low, as they had been meeting demand during the planned water outage. Although the Memorial Park bore was operational during the power cut, it was not meeting Greytown's demand.
We organised water tankers to supplement the water remaining in the reservoirs. Fortunately power was restored at 9.30pm. This allowed us to begin re-filling the Waiohine-fed reservoirs for Featherston and Greytown.
Thank you to all residents who are responding to the request to cut back water use, especially outdoors, and to the Greytown Fire Service for helping spread the word.
While the reservoirs are being re-filled, the total outdoor water ban (in Featherston & Greytown) is still in effect. We will look to lift this ban when operations continue as normal. We are anticipating this will be lifted tomorrow at 9am. We will confirm this tomorrow morning.
From 10 December total outdoor water ban applies in Martinborough.
