Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Some supernatural help has been hired in the hope customers and staff at the Resene shop in Cambridge will one day be able to see their favourite furry face again.

Timmy, a handsome 4-year-old tabby, disappeared one weekend in August from his cat house at the rear of the premises. Customer Paul Norfolk and wife Gloria had looked all over town for their favourite store cat, along with the shop’s manager, Kerry Mason, and her staff.

“Timmy is such an icon around Cambridge, everyone knows him as the Resene cat,” Gloria said.

A road safety campaign is in full swing to help raise awareness around the risks of driving while fatigued.

The campaign is a collaboration between Taupo District Council, Hawkes Bay Regional Council, Waka Kotahi and New Zealand Police and focuses on State Highway Five.

This stretch of road is a ‘hot-spot’ for driver fatigue with 29 crashes occurring due to driver fatigue between 2015 and 2019.

This new collaboration has targeted State Highway Five as a significant risk for driver fatigue related crashes. It includes fatigue stops where drivers are given refreshments and can discuss the importance of breaking up their journey.

Road safety coordinator Sarah Wraight is pleased with the partnership and hopes this campaign raises awareness around the dangers of driving while tired.

“With fatigue being recognised as a key factor in our districts, it has been great to form a collaborative response to try and combat this,” she said.

“Anything we can do to keep people safe when travelling on our roads has got to be a good thing.”

Look out for more fatigue stops around the area in the coming months or head here to find out more about how driving tired affects you and how to recognise some warning signs.
