PARKING WARNING

RAYMOND from Tawa

I certainly do not want any of my neighbours to go through the same experience as Wilhelmina.

Please be warned if you are a customer of Simon's Pharmacy in Tawa.

There's a huge display truck parked there to advertise the work of the transmission gully.

If you park on either side of that truck, chances are the Security Worker who opens the doors of the truck will just open the huge doors and let them fly. and they will damage your car..
And you will have no one to complain to as the Security worker will shrug his shoulders and say " it is the wind."

Martinborough Township Outdoor Water Ban

The Team from Wellington Water

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.

Redwood ave collision

Barnaby from Tawa

Hi there,

Just wondering if anybody may have seen a collision between a car and my parked car (black Subaru) on redwood ave near the school today between 7am and 4:30pm?

They have left a note, but it goes straight to a generic voicemail. They have also left a name which I won’t post publicly.

The insurance company will need a rego or description if the number doesn’t work.

Thanks neighbours!

The wheel was straight before it was hit 🤷‍♂️
