Helicopter sent

Police have confirmed a person was injured at a private property on East Taratahi Road shortly after 5pm on Saturday. A helicopter was sent to attend to one person with moderate injuries.

Dog rego time

Dog owners need to register their pets before July 31. Registering and microchipping dogs is an easy way for councils to identify animal owners and easily reunite a dog with its owner if it goes missing. Dog registration fees help pay for animal services, including a 24-hour service to respond to reports of dog attacks, roaming dogs, and animal welfare concerns.

Wairarapa shipwrecks

Wairarapa Archivist Mark Pacey will discuss stories from his book “The Lost Wrecks of Wairarapa” at Masterton District Library tomorrow morning. The event, jointly organised by the library, Wairarapa Archive and Masterton District Council, is at 10.30am.

Disorder complaints

Police were called to a number of disorder-related complaints at the weekend. Police investigated an alleged disorder on Broadway in Carterton at around 11pm on Saturday night. They also looked into a complaint of someone acting suspiciously on Plunket St, Solway, at about 6.10am yesterday morning.

Library holidays

With School holidays starting on Friday, Wairarapa libraries have plenty of programmes for wet winter days. Membership has increased by more than 30 per cent in recent times. Possibly because of the removal of overdue fees – libraries that have done this in other parts of the country have also noticed this trend. More info at https://www.wls.org.nz/

Pukaha juniors

Created for young nature lovers between 5 and 11 years old, a tailored programme offers hands-on learning at Pukaha Reserve during the school holidays. Children can spend the day exploring the forest, getting to know the birds and watching them being fed. Each session is guided by the weather conditions and offers flexibility to suit specific interests. Guides will be on hand to talk about the forest and its wildlife.
