Happy ending for a stray cat.

John from Ngaio

Hello neighbours,

I just wanted to shout out to those that stopped to aid the cat that was on the road on Ngaio gorge road this morning. Appreciate the assist. After visiting the After hours Clinic he was deemed to be in reasonably good health bar an abscess, a few scratches, bites and what not. … View more
Hello neighbours,

I just wanted to shout out to those that stopped to aid the cat that was on the road on Ngaio gorge road this morning. Appreciate the assist. After visiting the After hours Clinic he was deemed to be in reasonably good health bar an abscess, a few scratches, bites and what not. Apparently not hit by a car (at least 1 of the 9 lives for sure!)

We have for the better part of roughly 7 years been keeping an eye on & looking after him... (as an out door cat as we have our own~strictly indoors)...and we're glad we did because he will now be reunited with his family.

The owner has been notified & they will be reunited. It has been around 10 YEARS or so.

He has had quite the journey over the years & believe his roaming days are done, ready for the family life again.

To the owner; He does have a few belongings If you'd like to pick them up; Feeding dishes, shelter & whatnot.

Call/text; 0297719913 & we'll sort something out.

Cheers guys!

House sitting or short term rental needed between May and July

Jonny from Khandallah

Hi there neighbours,

Hi there neighbours,

My wife and I (hospital doctor and behaviour therapist) and our 2 girls (aged 1 and almost 3) have been left in a difficult situation as our landlords have refused to extend our rental lease beyond 7th May, as they need to move back into the property themselves. We are heading to Australia to work for a year at the start of August, so are desperately trying to find somewhere to live from 7th May until the end of July. Short term rental properties seem to be hard to find! We'd be very happy to house sit and looking after pets and gardens would be no problem. Our girls love animals!

We are responsible, tidy and quiet (barring the very occasional and brief tantrum from our usually delightful 2 year old, which will hopefully soon be a thing of the past as she turns 3 in April). Our current landlords are happy to provide a reference. They currently live next door to us so can vouch for us both as tenants and as neighbours.

We currently live in Khandallah and our girls attend daycare/kindy nearby, so we'd be keen to stay in the vicinity if possible, but ultimately we need to keep a roof over our heads so will certainly consider anywhere in or near the city/Hutt Valley/Porirua.

Please get in touch if you can help.

Thanks!
Jonny, Annie, Annabel and Emily

The number of properties in Severn Street affected by the water outage has been reduced from 250 properties to 70 (between 15-77 Severn Street).
However, those left without water to their homes will have another significant wait until service can be restored – the estimated time of repair is at least 8 hours.

Two nights in a row without water is unacceptable and very disruptive. We’re sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused and understand that it’s just not on.

Replacing the aged water pipe is currently scheduled to begin in March 2020; we’re looking into what can be done to speed the process up.
