Listing on behalf of a friend, this mahogany bedroom suite is at least 50 years old and was made to last. It is in good sound original condition. There is no splitting on any of the surfaces and everything still feels very solid.

There are the usual small blemishes/marks as might be expected from something over 50 years old but nothing of any great note. The mirror of the dresser looks great with no obvious issues to the coating on the back.

The chest of drawers has one broken drawer handle and although one handle appears to be missing it just needs to be reattached.
In addition to the pieces photographed, there are two single headboards in the same style:

DIMENSIONS:
Dresser with mirror: 1220mm (W) x 760mm (H) x 420mm (D). The mirror adds around another 870mm to the overall height.
Chest of drawers: 1205mm (W) x 675mm (H) x 420mm (D)
Side tables: (x2) 450mm (W) x 650mm (H) x 380mm (D)

South Wairarapa Mayor Alex Beijen is urging the community to immediately cease using water outside and to conserve water generally.

“On Monday evening, the pump on the township’s low-manganese bore faulted and is being urgently replaced. With no water being pumped the water reservoir reserves are going down."

Mayor Beijen said he had been advised that installing the spare pump could be done within a day, but until the reservoir levels have recovered and we know the replacement pump is working well, we must conserve water.

“It’s essential that the community immediately responds to this pressing need to conserve water. 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.

“Although safe to drink, the water could lose its clarity due to the reaction between manganese and chlorine – we want to avoid discoloured water if we can.

“We’re addressing infrastructure replacement as fast as possible, and this is unfortunate timing of an equipment failure,” said Mayor Beijen.

Information on how to conserve water will be shared throughout the community – you can find out more at www.wellingtonwater.co.nz...

“We will update the community when more information is available,” Mr Beijen said.
