We are installing a new service into the water supply network in the area. This means we have to turn off the supply between 10:00am-2:00pm on Wednesday 3 June, affecting properties 28-68 and 25-71 Oregon Drive, Maoribank, Upper Hutt. The water will be back on as soon as possible, but we recommend you fill up some containers with water before the time above and avoid running your dishwasher, washing machine etc. We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.
New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
