Last chance to nab this beautiful bird before the lockdown! Get in touch by 9am Wednesday morning to arrange a handover.

Astro is a beautiful Australorp cockerel (young rooster) looking for a new forever home.

Astro is friendly and curious, happy to eat out of your hand and while he doesn't like being touched, he is happy in both human and chicken company. He would love to have a flock to look after, and maybe become a dad.

Astro is a favourite with us, having been with us since he was a wee egg. We've kept him as long as we can here in the 'burbs, but now he needs a place where he can really settle in, and maybe even crow to his heart's content.

Greater Wellington Regional Council has closed vehicular access next to the Te Awa Kairangi/Hutt River at Harcourt Werry Drive and the access on the stopbank near High Street in the south.

The restriction is aimed at discouraging camping and congregation in the light of the raised COVID-19 alert levels and directives from the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Health. While the restriction will be in place until further notice, cyclists and pedestrians will continue to have access to pathways by the river.

In response to the Prime Minister’s address today on raised COVID-19 levels, Metlink will be moving to Sunday services across all public transport modes from Wednesday 25 March.

Metlink GM Scott Gallacher says, that while there are still a number of issues to work out, all trains and buses will move to Sunday services after Tuesday.

“We’ll work to deliver to the current timetables across the network tomorrow but from first thing Wednesday morning, Sunday timetables will be implemented,” says Mr Gallacher.

Buses will no longer board from the front door. Metlink apologises to customers who rely on the accessibility options provided at the front door and encourages customers to find out more about Total Mobility services during this time by calling 0800 801 700.

Customers will be encouraged to continue their own physical distancing practices on all trains and buses, leaving a space next to them where they can.

“We’re still working out what this might mean for Wairarapa rail services and will provide more updates when they become available,” says Mr Gallacher.

UPDATE: As part of the move to Sunday timetables, Metlink school bus services will not run from Wednesday.

If they don't like it tough. Arrive in Auckland or Wellington etc, without any sense of the hazards generated in teaching final destination. The govt dropped the ball on this. The naivety of many NZers is astounding
