Hi Neighbours,

An Auckland trucking company wishes to dump millions of cubic metres of industrial waste in a proposed site in Huntly, close to the only 'swimmable' lake left in the Waikato region. In 2012, a Waikato Regional Council scientist compared the nutrient levels in Waikato lakes to 1316 others globally and found them to be among the worst. This indicator has not shifted in the eight years since.

What do you think about the proposal?

A Bloke’s Day Out

Ryman Healthcare Limited

Why not treat yourself to a bloke’s day out for a grooming WOF? Just be wary of the barbershop – between the bay rum oil, hot towels, banter, and leather chairs, you won’t want to leave!

Why not treat yourself to a bloke’s day out for a grooming WOF? Just be wary of the barbershop – between the bay rum oil, hot towels, banter, and leather chairs, you won’t want to leave!

Bevis, a resident at Ryman’s Anthony Wilding Village, recently received a gentleman’s makeover. The day began at the barbershop where Bevis and his barber Kohl shared plenty of laughs. Next up, a personal stylist helped Bevis select clothes he looked and felt great in. Being pampered isn’t the norm for Bevis but based on his smile, we’re confident he loved every minute.

AC Baths plead for consideration after poo and spew incidents

Darren Petry from Taupo District Council

AC Baths staff are pleading for the community to stay away if they are unwell and ensure swim nappies are appropriately used after a spate of 10 poo and spew incidents in eight days.

Business and operations manager Scott Attenborough said each time there was an incident, the pool in which it happened had to be closed, with all pool users having to leave the water. After each incident the pool needed to be drained, cleaned and refilled. This could take between three and 12 hours, depending on the pool and size of the incident.

“We are really trying to get the message out that precautions can be taken to minimise these incidents,” he said. “All children aged three and under have to wear a fitting, secure swim nappy that properly contains any mess. If you or your child is feeling sick – please avoid coming to the pools, it can end very badly.”

Mr Attenborough said the number of incidents in such a short period was unprecedented and there was no obvious reason as to why there had been such a cluster.

“Our reception staff have been making the guidelines clear to those coming into the AC Baths to minimise these incidents,” he said. “But they just keep happening again and again, and it’s such an inconvenience for our other pool users.”

There were also large sign boards that reminded people of their responsibilities, he said.

High quality and reasonably priced swim nappies were sold at the AC Baths reception, Mr Attenborough said.
