Bring your dog to Upper Hutt’s Paws in the Park 2013

15/1: Just an update – Paws in the Park has now been postponed to March 2013 – date to be confirmed.

PRESS RELEASE
For immediate release, January 2013
Bring your dog to Upper Hutt’s Paws in the Park 2013

Upper Hutt City Council, in partnership with Greater Wellington Regional Council, bring Paws in the Park back to Upper Hutt this summer. The annual Paws in the Park event is a great opportunity for dog and nature lovers alike to get together and explore the beautiful forest along Tane’s Track at Tunnel Gully.

The event will be held on Sunday 20 January from 11am – 2pm. Tunnel Gully is located just off SH2. To get there, head north on Main Road North from Upper Hutt towards Rimutaka Hill, turn right at the Te Marua Store (6 km north of Upper Hutt) onto Plateau Road and follow this road until it ends at Tunnel Gully Recreation Area.

Activation Team Leader Frances McEwen says “getting out and about during summer is a great way to spend time with friends and family and keep active. Dogs are part of the family - mine definitely is! - and they love the chance to ‘socialise’ with other dogs and explore new areas. Tunnel Gully is a beautiful location and ideal for picnics, so bring your basket and a bone with you!”

After the walk, there will be dog obedience displays and spot prizes for those who attend. Please remember to bring your dog on a lead and plastics bags to collect any dog poo! The track is suitable for single mountain buggies, so bring the kids.

If the event is cancelled for any reason it will be broadcast on Newstalk ZB. The event begins at 11am, with the walk commencing at approximately 11.30am. The track takes about one hour to complete.

Gordon Campbell: On The Ch-Ch-Changes At IRD

job cuts aren’t happening at the IRD, exactly. Instead, there’s apparently a ‘transformation’ in store, and jobs won’t be axed ; no, they will be ‘transformed’ before our eyes into… non-jobs, if you happen to be among the unlucky legion of 1,900 who are being lined up for transformation, which seems to work rather like a secular version of the Rapture.

Except that at IRD, not even your shoes will be left behind. More>>
