What a week of wild weather we’ve had in Manawatu.

There’s been snow, co­pi­ous amounts of rain, some flood­ing and the freez­ing cold to con­tend with.

While most of us in the city have avoided the worst of it, I re­ally feel for those in the outer re­gions of Manawatu who have been deal­ing with heavy dumps of snow and power out­ages.

Win­ter, as ev­ery year, is a solid re­minder to look out for our neigh­bours, es­pe­cially when faced with tough times like this.

How bril­liant is the project at the Memo­rial Park play­ground (Page 5) to in­stall play equip­ment suit­able for chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties?

The new play equip­ment has been de­lib­er­ately in­stalled along­side the other play gear so the area is in­clu­sive for chil­dren of all abil­i­ties.

This is a pos­i­tive move for our com­mu­nity.
