From Your Mayor

Bush Telegraph - - FOCUS ON FARMING -

Tena ko­tou s greet­ings to you all,

This Sun­day, we re­mem­ber those who fought for their coun­try in the First World War at the cen­te­nary com­mem­o­ra­tion of Armistice Day.

On 11 Novem­ber 1918, an armistice was signed, an agree­ment to war­ring par­ties to stop fight­ing.

Now, one hun­dred years on, we hon­our the past and ac­knowl­edge the free­dom we have to­day be­cause of those who sac­ri­ficed their lives; those who died and those whose lives changed for­ever due to the scars of war.

Com­mem­o­ra­tion ser­vices are be­ing held through­out the Dis­trict.

The Trans­port Agency are hold­ing meet­ings as it be­gins the process of gain­ing con­sent for the SH3 Manawatu-Tararua High­way.

Ses­sions are from 4pm to 7pm in Dan­nevirke on 7 Novem­ber, Woodville on 8 Novem­ber and Pahiatua on 14 Novem­ber.

In­for­ma­tion boards will cover; the con­sent process and mak­ing a sub­mis­sion, trans­port is­sues, noise and vi­bra­tion, so­cial is­sues, her­itage and cul­tural is­sues, and eco­log­i­cal is­sues.

An up­dated map of the pro­posed road cor­ri­dor and an an­i­mated fly­over video will be show­ing.

Please go along and learn how to have your say in the process.

Guy Fawkeos Day is to­day, the day in his­tory when Guy Fawkes and a group of men at­tempted to blow up the Bri­tish Par­lia­ment.

It is not so much a cel­e­bra­tion of the man, but of the failed plot and Par­lia­ment be­ing spared.

Spare a thought for pets at this time and please keep them in­side, or bet­ter still, head to a pub­lic event and cel­e­brate with your com­mu­nity.

Noho ora mai s all the best, Tracey Col­lis
