Dogs downtown during October

The Team from Marlborough District Council

Dogs will be allowed in Blenheim’s CBD during October, when the National Dog Show comes to town.

While Council’s bylaw prohibiting dogs in central Blenheim will be lifted for the whole of October, it’s important that dog owners are responsible during this time.

All dogs must be on a leash and under control at all times, and owners must clean up after their dogs. Failure to do so could result in a $300 fine.

Dog owners will be able to identify dog-friendly retailers by a paw print sticker displayed on the shop window or door.

Dangerous driving.

Trina from Blenheim

Crazy driving between Rai Valley and Blenheim. This car overtook twice on a yellow line. I was following a truck but couldn't pass on the yellow line, the road was clear and the yellow line just finished so I indicated to overtake but this car which was two cars behind me flew past me while I was in the process of overtaking and nearly drove me off the road. Dangerous driving. Do you know this car. Shame on you driver. Also so it cross the white line near Canvas Town and got the speed wobbles.

Poll: Would you pay to use your neighbours' swimming pool?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

People rent out baches, rooms in their houses, their garages and car parking spaces, so surely hiring out swimming pools is the next logical step.

A new app lets people hire their private pools by the hour, but it hasn't come to New Zealand - yet.
