Good afternoon everyone (and what an extraordinary Indian Summer we've had for our lock-down, we've been so lucky!)

I've put together phone numbers for Waikanae businesses opening for collections and takeaways from Tuesday. It would be awesome if you could print this for friends and neighbours who mightn't be on any form of social media.

And our fish and chip shops seem to be open too now - give them a ring to see how they are handling takeaways!

If we all support local, we'll get the heart of our lovely town thumping again!

To repair a leak, it must first be found—and this can be more complicated than you might think.

In this case, infrastructure had been built over the manhole cover that would normally be used to inspect a pipe, so our team had to find another way into it.

Here’s Foreman Mika and Drainlayer Richie feeding a CCTV camera down the pipe after the team had carefully uncovered it with a digger.

Armed with detailed images of the 30 metre long pipe, they had the information they needed to finish the job.
