Watering restrictions have now been eased for Metropolitan Wellington and South Wairarapa

The Team from Wellington Water

We can now use sprinklers and irrigations systems to water our gardens! 🌼🌻
This is because watering restrictions have now been eased for Metropolitan Wellington and South Wairarapa 👏

“Community action in limiting water use, paired with the hot summer peak use period coming to an end, means we are confident about removing watering restrictions across the region” says Laurence Edwards, Chief Advisor Drinking Water.

Please continue to be mindful of water use as the rivers, lakes and aquifers recover. 💧

Please remember that alternate day, odds-evens watering still applies in Upper Hutt, and South Wairarapa as it does all year round.

Pet of the Day: Siam the klepto-cat

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week we feature Siam the klepto-cat. Not sure where Siam lives but the submission made by Sine Goldfinch was to good to ignore.
"Siam came in my cat door six years ago with this sponge in his mouth and dropped it at my feet as a gift for me. His owner gave him to me because he just refused to go and six years on, he still brings the same sponge to me every night. I'm pretty sure it is the equivalent of roses in his mind."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.

(Not A) Friday Feathered Friend

Technically it is not a Feathered Friend but this a lovely pic from Rosa Marie after her recent visit to Zealandia. Weta used to be much more common, when was the last time you saw a weta in your garden?
