Photo: COLIN WILLIAMS By COLIN WILLIAMS Upper Hutt s popular Hutt River Trail has just got longer. The recreation path now officially snakes along Plateau Rd at Te Marua after the opening of a further 700 metres alongside State Highway 2, north of its previous finishing point. It s open for use. There s been no fanfare or official opening but it s there for people to enjoy and to be able to go further than they have been previously, city council parks and reserves officer Conrad King says. The extension, via an underpass bridge under the highway, connects the trail to Beechwood Ln and from there links to the beginning of Plateau Rd. Construction work by a Lower Hutt com- pany, Valley Landscape, saw a new path cut a couple of metres below road level and supported on the river side with caged boulders. The start of the new path uses fenced-off farm land owned by Maurice Wooster follow- ing an easement agreement reached with the city council, Mr King says. The work, jointly funded by the NZ Trans- port Agency and the Pelorus Trust, was managed by the city council. The trail, which runs unbroken and off-road from the Hutt River mouth at Petone, continues the vision of the valley s Rotary clubs. It has been developed through partnerships with the cit- ies of Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt and the Greater Wellington Regional Council. QUAKE RAFFLE WINNERS The winners of Upper Hutt s raffle for the Red Cross earthquake appeal in Christchurch have been announced. Annette Connole won first place with Anita Filkins and Seph Meads being awarded second and third. The raffle, which was drawn on May 12, raised $7315 for charity and 1463 tickets were sold. Prizes included a luxury spa voucher, accommodation at Wallaceville House, and vouchers from The Warehouse. Puppy found then lost again By COLIN WILLIAMS Missing and missed: Rogue, the nine-week-old staffordshire. A staffordshire puppy is believed to have been stolen from the Upper Hutt City Council s locked dog control vehicle. Rogue, an unvaccinated nine- week-old puppy had the toughest of mornings on Monday and now is separated from her new owner Craig Sco- ble and, devastatingly, his five- year-old daughter Lynnsey. The police have been alerted to what the council is saying is a mystifying theft from their vehicle, one which required Rogue to have opened the dog control van from the inside, possibly at the behest of a dog- napper who then took the puppy and closed the van door behind him or her. The theft, from the council carpark behind their Fergusson Dr headquarters, quickly fol- lowed Rogue s earlier escape from her Benge St home and her pick-up by two city dog com- pliance officers. Realising the pup had gone, Mr Scoble quickly contacted the council and was relieved to know she had been found and was safe and sound in the dog ranger s van . . . But on his arrival to meet the dog ranger and get Rogue back, Mr Scoble learned she was miss- ing. We believe the dog was stolen. The vehicle was defi- nitely locked, city compliance services manager Michelle Kna- pton says. My understanding is the dog must have managed to bump the lock lose. It s hard to under- stand how it managed to. Rogue, bought three weeks ago for $600, had not been placed in an internal cage because of her size and youth. The officer put her in the side part of the vehicle and made a little bed for her and this extra height might have have helped her reach the door handle, Ms Knapton says. Mr Scoble is understandably mystified and frustrated at a hard-to-fathom train of events. My daughter is at tears with this and we want our new puppy back. Rogue is black with a white diamond on her forehead. Mr Scoble can be contacted on 021 885 209.
