News in brief, July 24, 2023


for Mitchell

The Times Age shared a story a month ago about a local Masterton family who are currently fundraising to attend a clinic in Austria, in order to help six-year-old Mitchell be able to eat. To try and reach their goal, Mitchell’s father Andrew Ryan said they want to actively involve the local community, so they have organised a fundraising evening. It will feature a quiz, auction and raffles, with donations from local businesses and auction items such as a Ross Taylor test jersey signed by the players, and a signed Warriors jersey up for grabs. The evening will be on Friday, August 18, 6pm at the Marist Rugby Club and tickets are $20 per person. For more information, visit the event Facebook page Help Mitchell Eat – Quiz, Auction and Raffle Fundraiser.

Weather ahead

It’s a cloudy week ahead, with light showers and wind developing today and tomorrow. The morning brings in southerlies tomorrow, which will amp up along the coast. MetService forecasts heavier rain for Wednesday, with a bigger downpour and strong south-westerlies in the morning but both easing up in the evening. Both Thursday and Friday are looking fine, with a few isolated showers and fresh winds developing.

SWDC meeting

South Wairarapa District Council’s Infrastructure and Community Services Committee is meeting tomorrow in the Supper Room, Waihinga Centre, Martinborough at 10am. Public participation is welcome, but if you wish to speak during the meeting, then make sure you have phoned 06 306 9611 at least 24 hours before the meeting, or email [email protected]. Where possible, the meeting will also be live-streamed on the council’s Youtube channel.

Countdown drill

Shoppers getting their supermarket shopping done in Masterton’s Countdown yesterday had to ditch the trolleys and wait outside during an evacuation. One appliance and crew from Masterton Station showed up to assess the damage, which turned out to be a false alarm. After the crew had checked that there was no danger inside the building, all grocery efforts returned to normal, and shoppers were allowed back inside.
