Name Game For Unborn Cafe

Michael from Trentham

Got to get this off my mind. It's a plea to whoever takes on opening a cafe in the Blue Mountains Campus, Wallaceville 12 months from now.

If indeed a public cafe is installed as expected, it will occupy part of the ground floor of the four storey Buddle House.

So here is the name for it:

"This is Sam, our nine weeks old, rescue kitten now living in Waikanae.
Kittens are supposed to sleep for 18 to 20 hours a day....I think Sam needs a new clock as he never sleeps anywhere close to this and seems to spends all day running round at top speed!"

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Tatiana

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tatiana was a really timid girl who has really come out of her shell since finding a new home courtesy of the SPCA.
"You might be as shocked and as surprised as I am to know how well Tatiana is doing already. She's out of her box most of the time and is now running to me when I call her … View more
Tatiana was a really timid girl who has really come out of her shell since finding a new home courtesy of the SPCA.
"You might be as shocked and as surprised as I am to know how well Tatiana is doing already. She's out of her box most of the time and is now running to me when I call her for lots of headbutts and head rubs. She's very chatty and is becoming comfortable walking around, exploring the house, and sitting on the windowsills and watching the world already. I chose the right cat, she's quite a character and is actually quite a brave, young lady."

"So cool to see a bellbird (Anthornis melanura), aka korimako, today. I can't remember the last one I saw - possibly around Christmas time, when I snapped one in red mistletoe at Mt Ruapehu. My daughter actually spotted this guy. "Mum, look, … View more

Upper Hutt has joined the rest of the country and is now requiring vaccine passes for its buildings. A confirmed Covid-19 case in the Hutt Valley has led to the council reversing its controversial decision not to use vaccine passes for most council facilities, including libraries.
“Given this [case] and the high transmission rate of the Delta strain, we have made the decision to change the settings at our public facilities, moving to more restrictive settings,” the council said in a statement.
Mayor Wayne Guppy is urging everybody to wear masks and follow the guidelines on wearing masks.

U H Leader Not Leading The Way

Front page headlines in Upper Hutt Leader December 15, 2021: Work starts on $100m hub project.
First paragraph includes: work has begun on a new earthquake resistant commercial hub (etc etc).

Love to advise the unnamed writer that work in earnest started nearly three months ago on the Blue Mountains Campus and lots of people can vouch for this as they file past almost every day.

If this is the news of the day, then there is little use for the Leader as a newspaper.

In fact most of the information in this main item of the Dec 15 edition has previously been documented in better format in the Leader which at the time was considerably behind other news media including the DomPost, Stuff and the Willis Bond website.

Upper Hutt Council "monitoring" COVID situation

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

With a confirmed COVID case in the community, the Upper Hutt City Council is "monitoring" the situation. If there a confirmed transmission, it will change the rules around vaccine passes.
Upper Hutt is one of the few councils in New Zealand not requiring the use of passes.
