FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Rodney Times - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - - Rhon­wyn

School hol­i­days are here and con­stantly com­ing up with new ways to keep the kids en­ter­tained can be tricky, and ex­pen­sive. Sure, we are lucky to be sur­rounded by a coast­line and beau­ti­ful parks and re­serves, but these things may not al­ways be suit­able es­pe­cially when the weather is dreary.

We’ve put to­gether a list of a few events and places to take the lit­tle ones dur­ing the hol­i­days. See P6.

And if you have a list­ing to add to our What’s On sec­tion, sim­ply visit nbly.nz/rod and fill out the form.

As I write this, the Snells Beach Nor­folk pine has been cor­doned off and con­trac­tors are set to bring it down. The saga around the tree seems to have been han­dled very badly. I un­der­stand the tree is not na­tive, so doesn’t have special con­sid­er­a­tions, but the birds that roost in it are. We will bring you up­dates as they hap­pen, re­mem­ber to check rod­ney­times.co.nz for more.
