Anyone who bought their ticket from Carterton Mobil should check their ticket as soon as possible in-store, on MyLotto, or through the MyLotto App.

Marine manners

The Department of Conservation [DoC] has received numerous complaints this summer about boaties and jetskiers getting too close to marine mammals around the country. DoC said it was something it sees every summer, but more people were aware of the rules and were reporting more incidents of inappropriate behaviour. “Interacting with marine mammals can disturb their natural behaviours like resting, feeding, and socialising, which can have long-term impacts on survival and breeding success,” DoC said. Concerning behaviour involving marine mammals can be reported to 0800 DOCHOT [0800 362 468]. DoC requests as much information as possible including images or video, descriptions of persons, boat names or vehicle registrations. Poor behaviour can also include disturbing onshore animals. More information can be found on the DoC website.

Week of weather

The week ahead looks like a mixed bag of cloud, sunshine, and a sprinkling of rain on Thursday. Today has an expected high of 26 degrees Celsius despite predictions of consistent cloud cover while tomorrow is expected to be sunny with a high of 24degC. Wednesday drops to 22degC and the lower temperature carries through to Thursday, where a few morning showers are expected before clearing to fine. Friday is expected to jump up again to 27degC and sunny before the start of the weekend brings 26degC and light winds with partly cloudy skies.
