We enjoyed dinner at The Curry Pot on Wednesday night (thanks, Aya, for the recommendation), followed by Christmas-themed Table Topics, strawberries, a few mince pies and far too many mini eclairs :) There were even a few Toastmasters versions of Christmas carols - turns out we're quite a tuneful bunch!

We start 2020 with a new venue (Trinity Union Church) and a new meeting night (Tuesday). More details to follow - but for now, have a great Christmas and New Year. We look forward to being part of your development in a new decade!

FEATHERSTON & GREYTOWN
After a planned water shutdown to install new treatment equipment for Greytown's Memorial Park bore yesterday, we were restoring supply when a power cut occurred.

The power cut affected the Waiohine Treatment plant, which supplies water to both Greytown and Featherston. The Waiohine reservoirs were already quite low, as they had been meeting demand during the planned water outage. Although the Memorial Park bore was operational during the power cut, it was not meeting Greytown's demand.

We organised water tankers to supplement the water remaining in the reservoirs. Fortunately power was restored at 9.30pm. This allowed us to begin re-filling the Waiohine-fed reservoirs for Featherston and Greytown.

Thank you to all residents who are responding to the request to cut back water use, especially outdoors, and to the Greytown Fire Service for helping spread the word.

While the reservoirs are being re-filled, the total outdoor water ban (in Featherston & Greytown) is still in effect. We will look to lift this ban when operations continue as normal. We are anticipating this will be lifted tomorrow at 9am. We will confirm this tomorrow morning.

MARTINBOROUGH
From 10 December total outdoor water ban applies in Martinborough.

Everything has got to go. The shop fittings have been getting scooped up but there's still a lot.

We also have some free stuff lurking outside the shop. If you're happy to come in and drop a donation to charity, we'd welcome it. We donate to Mary Potter Hospice.

Come in and look around, still a lot around, everything is 30% off the marked price, unless it's been reduced by more already!

We'd love to see everybody one last time or times before we go!
