CAN YOU HELP? If so come and see us at the clinic! 100% COMMITTED TO YOUR PET! Don't hog the road To the woman motorist in the white people mover, who knocked me off my bike on Wednesday, June 8, at 1.30pm at the roundabout on Fergusson Dr outside the pool, thanks for stopping to see if I was OK; thanks for scaring the life out of me and thanks for ignoring the fact that I had right of way in the intersection. Perhaps the shocked look on my face, the evasive action I had to take to avoid landing on your bonnet (and damaging my bike) and the scream I yelled as I hit the road will shock you enough into realising that cyclists have a right on the road just as much as you have and in this instance you were in the wrong, not once but twice. You should have given way to me and waited for me to ride around the intersection; and then you should have come back and checked to see if I was hurt and provide assistance if necessary. Yelling sorry to me while I laid on the road doesn t cut it as far as I am concerned! Luckily all I have are some bumps, sprains and grazes. You scared the living daylights out of me and I was hesitant to get back on my bike, but I am not going to let you rob me of something that I love doing. In future lady, how about watching out for cyclists. Don t you know you have to share the road -- it s not exclusively yours! JO KINNAIRD, Birchville Rugby, the supporters' dream Every Saturday we wait for our teams to run out onto the field. We love the game, don t we, we yell out feed the backs , get it wide , then a forward makes a break and scores, well done lad. We talk on the sideline that was great, how many tries will we get today? If I say four they get five, if I say five, like last fortnight, they score nine. The team is playing really well but still they give away too many silly penalties, sin bins. At times when we have a good lead our hearts sink. We lost in the last minutes, we feel bad, why didn t they do this and that, same old story. There s Glen, Colin, John, John again, Paul and, oh yes, that chap who talks on the radio and a few other faithfuls, the two with the large flag, oh and Candy the dog. Last fortnight we lost three starting players from the backline and still piled on the points. We have a good mixture of players, backs and forwards and we are in the top 8 second round. The reserve team plays well too. So come on Upper Hutt, come and see them play, give them a lift. JOHN ALLAN, Upper Hutt Thanks for caring My very elderly mother goes to daycare at Elderslea twice a week. I would like congratulate the staff there on going the extra mile with their care. Two in particular have come to my notice, Penny, who knows a bit about genealogy and entertains residents, has gone to the trouble of researching my mother s parents and has found and printed a copy of their marriage certificate. The other is the groundsman. He has produced a wonderful garden around the new buildings. What is especially good about it is that he is using best sustainable practice. The lawn clippings, including all the fallen leaves, are spread around the garden beds providing valuable nutrients as they break down over time and, most importantly, reducing the need for watering. If you re passing, drive around their circular flowerbed and take a look. Thank you both for your different kinds of care. LYNNE McLELLAN, Mangaroa Thanks On Thursday, May 26, six children and two teachers travelled on the bus to Upper Hutt to visit the New Zealand Post depot and have morning tea at McDonald s. This was our special monthly excursion making links with our community. While having morning tea at McDonald s a very generous gentleman purchased our group of children a bag of apple pieces each. This was totally unexpected and very much appreciated, making our excursion even more exciting. Thank you very much for your generosity and kind community spirit.

Sprinklers still active Inspection time: Fire fighters and workers assess the broken sprinkler system that prompted an emergency fire service callout to Main St on Monday. By KAROLINE TUCKEY A sprinkler system triggered by construction at the old Hazelwoods building site on Main St sparked an emerg- ency fire service response on Monday morning. At least two units rushed to the scene of the alarm in cen- tral Upper Hutt just after 9am, and carried out a full inspection, halting some work. On arrival, water was gush- ing down the outside of a wall remaining from the old build- ing, while a substantial leak also flowed from pipes under the street awning. Contractors on the site told the fire service they believed the system had been isolated, but the gush had been caused by work on the site. The rust- coloured water flowing from the site into gutters on the street did not appear to be pooling in the building site when the Upper Hutt Leader visited.
