Come along to the ACC Paralympics New Zealand Open Day in Wellington at ASB Sports Centre (10am to 3pm).
Meet Paralympians Sophie Pascoe, Mary Fisher, Kate Horan and Para athlete Libby Leikis!
An Open Day is your opportunity to find Para sport opportunities in your area, watch demonstrations, and get amongst the action yourself.
You’ll also have a chance to chat with Para athletes and coaches and find out how you can get involved. A variety of Para sports will be included at each event such as Wheelchair Basketball, Para cycling, Boccia, Para athletics, and there’ll be lots more to see and do.
The Open Days are FREE to attend.
There is a move to introduce water meters across the region.
A Wellington Water report recommended the region spend $144 million on infrastructure which would allow it to record and report on residents' daily-water usage, in a bid to encourage residents to save water and prevent drought-like shortages.
Upper Hutt Mayor Wayne Guppy says residents should have a say on water meters. However, he was personally opposed to a user-pays scheme.
