Following the fault on Monday with the low manganese bore that is supplying the Martinborough Township, the pump was successfully replaced yesterday.

However this morning the pump experienced an electrical fault, which means there is no water pumping from the bore and reservoir levels are going down. We have our team on site working on a replacement as fast as possible.

The total outdoor water ban is still in place, and the community is encouraged to continue with their water conservation efforts. If the township uses more water than we can supply from the low-manganese bore, we will have to use the other bores as well. That could mean the town’s drinking water becoming discoloured.

Hi all,

PIANO FREE FOR PICK UP.

Dark brown veneer Kemble Piano.

Kemble London. Patent no. 429809. Sole agents for New Zealand. Charles Begg & Co Ltd imprinted on the piano.

This was in the house when we bought it and just need it gone. Been sitting in the garage and will need a good clean / tune up I’m sure.

No keys appear to be broken but I don’t know anything about pianos and I haven’t had a good look at it. Giving away as is where is.

Must pick up from Stokes Valley - easy access. Drive right up to the garage and roll the piano out (it has castor wheels attached to the bottom).
I am very flexible with dates/times as am a stay at home mum.

Free
