Happy ending for a stray cat.

John from Ngaio

Hello neighbours,

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!

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.

The most noticeable change is shifting the focus from the word Victoria to the word Wellington. It comes after a failed bid to change the university's name. Opponents of the $466,367.87 "refresh" say it's a joke and a disgrace. What do you think?
