New KiwiRail ferry terminal – community drop-in


Kia ora neighbours, experience an interactive digital walk-through of KiwiRail’s new Kaiwharawhara ferry terminal precinct at our community drop-in – Pipitea Marae, 55-59 Thorndon Quay, 13 July, 12.30pm – 3pm.

Check out the concept designs for the new terminal and the bigger, hybrid-electric Interisland ferries we’re having custom-built. Work will start shortly on the terminal redevelopment, ready for the arrival of the new ferries from 2025.

The Interislander journey across Te Moana o Raukawakawa (Cook Strait) is one of the most spectacular in the world and we’re creating a customer experience to match.

Come and kōrero with the team working on this awesome project. We’d love to see you there.

Brewtown Becoming More Bountiful

Michael from Trentham

Just when you thought Brewtown in Upper Hutt has got almost everything it possibly could have, along comes the Gillies Group with even further advancements.

The two most recent additions are an outdoor Farmers Market that started very modestly and has sprung up in produce stall numbers and public attendances; and an out-and-out cafe with a bicycling theme.

Just announced is a two million dollar canopy covering of the Farmers Market to make it an all-weather venue every Sunday as well as increasing its area size so that up to 100 stalls can be positioned within it.

It will be the only covered Farmers Market in NZ and is destined to attract hordes of people living in other parts of the region.

The semi enclosed area can also be used for other events such as concerts which is fantastic and gives Brewtown twin permanent "marquees" in respect to the one that was constructed a couple of years ago and was utilised for the very successful New Year's Eve gig last December 31.

Attended Beervana at Sky Stadium today and despite being a Friday morning/afternoon, a very big crowd converged around the concourse of this super stadium.
Brewtown was well represented by Te Aro, Boneface and Panhead who are all leaders among craft beer producers in NZ. Only my personal favourite Kereru from the wider Brewtown precinct was missing but hopefully they will be back again next year.

Pet of the Day: Meet Murphy

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tracy Watkins is the proud owner of Murphy.

"She loves chasing rabbits but while she’s never actually caught one it's good exercise for working off her other favourite thing, treats.
She also loves swimming in the creek on our lifestyle block and likes most things about country life (except cows which can be a bit intimidating). She also loves a lie in and is always the last one out of bed."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say which suburb you live in.
