We’re working through a review of our District Plan and are proposing some big changes for residential and rural development. It’s called Plan Change 50. We’re seeking your feedback on our draft proposals now.

Two areas of significant interest for our community will be what’s being proposed for rural development.

🐑Like enabling more options for rural-residential living through rural lifestyle and settlement zones, easing consent flexibility and increasing climate resilience.
🍅And protecting our rural high class soils to enable future primary production and localised food growing opportunities.

To read the fact sheets for both of these zones and to share your feedback, go to letskorero.upperhuttcity.com/pc50

Could you get more from your Vitamin C supplement?

Lipo Sachets

The body doesn’t produce or store vitamin C, which means many of us are missing out on its health-giving benefits. You should also consume it daily, not just in times of need.

Olympics High Quality at Half-Way

Michael from Trentham

The Tokyo Olympics is high quality in performances through all the sports and in the venues provided. The stadiums etc are simply marvellous.

The Tokyo Olympics is high quality in performances through all the sports and in the venues provided. The stadiums etc are simply marvellous.
Never seen anything better of all these things.
The camera work to capture the action is extraodinary.
The track and field is almost out of this world. HIgh standards, world and Olympic Games records already abound.
NZ is producing its best array of sports successes ever and gaining medals which were not expected. So we are on the road to a record haul and up near the top in medals per capita and so very superior to the likes of China, USA and Japan.
The drama of these Olympics is not lost on me and the extra tearfulness and emotion shown among many athletes is a product of the adversities faced in the difficult times we are in. This Olympics is a light in the all the gloom and the reason why they went ahead, be it a year late.

Magnificent Maple – KittyCat Rescue Wairarapa

Rachel Aaltonen from KittyCat Rehoming

Maple is a small kitty with a big personality who turned from a hissy, hostile kitten into a confident and cuddly friend. She's about 8 months old and has an unusual and stunning coat for a tabby that is tricky to capture in the photos. Her fur has the most gorgeous autumn leaf colours … View moreMaple is a small kitty with a big personality who turned from a hissy, hostile kitten into a confident and cuddly friend. She's about 8 months old and has an unusual and stunning coat for a tabby that is tricky to capture in the photos. Her fur has the most gorgeous autumn leaf colours swirling through it – hence the name: Maple.

Like many cats, Maple may stand back and size you up for a while when you first meet but, once she decides she approves, you’ll find her to be the most affectionate kitty. When her foster mum comes home, Maple rushes to her enclosure door and, before the door is even fully open, Maple has her paws up on her foster mum’s chest.

Maple loves company and likes to be the centre of attention. She’s big on forceful, loving headbutts and she’s talkative. She’ll sit on your lap (whether you have other cats there already or not) and purr, touch you, ‘talk’ to you and knead you.

Maple’s playful and adventurous. She loves playing with people, her laser pointer and will chase any toys. She ‘experiments’ with her environment. Her foster mum found her sitting on top of the tank attached to her water cooler bowl and has observed her hanging upside down from her crate - like a monkey (but far more elegant).

Maple’s partial to puree treats and the odd tuna sandwich. She has good table manners and is not a gobble-guts.

The best home for Maple is any quietish home where she’ll get lots of love and attention. Perhaps you’re a family with a child who understands cats and who can become her special friend? Or maybe you are an adult or a couple with lots of love to give her? Maple doesn’t like dogs. She may accept another cat friend, as long as they know that she’s the boss.

Maple is currently being fostered in Porirua and, if you’d like to meet her, contact us on Facebook, email Kittycatrehoming@gmail.com or phone 0204 335463.

$210 adoption fee.
(Maple is desexed, microchipped, wormed, de-fleaed and vaccinated.)

Price: $210

Sensational Silver – KittyCat Rescue Wairarapa

Rachel Aaltonen from KittyCat Rehoming

Silver is a lovely, friendly young fella who is about 8 months old and looking for his forever home. When he gets to know you, you’ll find him eager for cuddles and pats. Should you stop patting him before he’s ready, prepare for him to nudge your hand and complain in his hilarious squeaky … View moreSilver is a lovely, friendly young fella who is about 8 months old and looking for his forever home. When he gets to know you, you’ll find him eager for cuddles and pats. Should you stop patting him before he’s ready, prepare for him to nudge your hand and complain in his hilarious squeaky little voice until you start patting him again.

Despite his slightly hang-dog, ‘resting sad face’ expression, Silver is a happy and easy-going little guy. He loves his grub, plunging his face deep into his bowl and cheerfully scoffing. He is exceptionally enthusiastic about puree treats, biting the tube and clawing at its ends as if to say, “Foster Mum! Make with the delicious goo already!”. Silver loves to play and will go crazy, flying through the air and dancing for his laser pointer and wand toys.

When he’s done playing and eating, you’ll find him fast asleep on his back, his body slightly twisted and his little feet in the air.

Silver will make a lovely friend. His mellow personality means he’ll do well in many homes. Anywhere he can make special friends with a child or adult will be great. While Silver probably wouldn’t like to be with dogs unless they are very docile, he loves other cats. Despite his foster Mum’s cats’ obvious displeasure, Silver would give them head butts and try to hang out with them.

Silver is currently being fostered in Porirua and, if you’d like to meet him, contact us on Facebook, email Kittycatrehoming@gmail.com or phone 0204 335463.

$210 adoption fee.
(Silver is desexed, microchipped, wormed, de-fleaed and vaccinated.)
