Watering Restrictions

The Team from Wellington Water

We are still in watering restriction level 1: routine odds/evens garden watering.
There is enough water available for residents based on current demand, BUT we need to look after our precious wai so we have enough to last all summer.
Hot, dry weather + increased demand = levels changing quickly. … View more

Monday Sport Blast From The Past: Neroli Knight

Known as "Bart" Neroli Knight was a pioneer of women's rugby.
These days she is a primary school teacher and coaches juniors at the Waihi Athletic Rugby club.
In August, 1990 she set a record that will probably never be broken, when she became Black Fern no 28 at aged just 15 against the Netherlands at the RugbyFest in Christchurch.
Neroli attended the Rugby World Cup in Cardiff in 1991, appearing the play-off for third against France. She next played for New Zealand in 1999, playing a test against against Canada in Palmerston North. She played her last test in 2001 but continued playing club rugby with success and for Wellington at rep level.
Clubs she was associated with include Stokes Valley, Petone and Hutt Old Boys Marist. It was not only her youthful international debut that makes Neroli unique.
She began playing in a boys team in Blenheim in 1982 when she was eight years old. She continued playing in boys teams and did so again at Hutt Valley High School.
In 2009, she married Waihi church pastor Benhur Matautia.
And how did she get that nickname? She made her international debut in 1990, the same year that Bart Simpson first appeared and with her spiky hair, she had a passing resemblance to the famous cartoon character.

The kākāpō has been crowned Bird of the Year in an election that featured a delayed start, alliances, and voter fraud.
This is the flightless parrot’s second win, also taking the title in 2008.
Throughout the two-week voting period, the Antipodean Albatross topped the leaderboard with the most number one votes.
But the kākāpō, the original “okay boomer” for the male’s deep booming call, bounded into the lead with most votes overall once the preferential voting system was applied.
Top 10
Kākāpō, Toroa/Antipodean Albatross, Kakaruia/Black Robin,Kārearea/New Zealand Falcon, Kererū, Pohowera/Banded Dotterel, Kākā, Ruru/Morepork, Whio/Blue Duck, Pīwakawaka/Fantail.
The yellow and black hihi, the only bird to mate face-to-face, won the endorsement of Adult Toy Megastore, and that of the Deputy Prime Minister, The Wellington City Council, the Wellington Phoenix football team, and the Central Pulse netball team.

A tougher level 1 ...what are your thoughts?

Michelle from Waikanae Beach

However on my return trip I felt that if I was to wear a mask people would judge me (thinking I was sick and shouldn't be on the plane) and the chances of getting covid was virtually zero, so I didn't ...but as proven in the past , theres always that chance. I am pleased that it is now mandentory as I do think others may have thought the same.
Now I have noticed that no one uses the covid tracing app when going into the local shopping mall...perhaps living in Kapiti it is easy to assume we are safe ...I understand there are some shops in Auckland that won't let you in unless you sign in or use the app ...maybe this is a good thing, or maybe it should be mandated too, to prevent further lockdowns?
Interested to know your thoughts ...no conspiracy theories please, thanks
