I watched the weed spraying truck go past and saw the spray drift onto my property. My dog grazes on this grass as well as grass on our walk. California has banned glypsophate as it has been linked to cancer and we are spaying poison all over our streets. It is time this is stopped. 1 litre of white vinegar, a cup of salt and a squirt of detergent will do the same thing. Wake up.
Ross Bennie, FUNDRAISING THANKS
On behalf of St Joseph’s Venturer Scouts, I would like to thank all those who supported us by buying our fundraising lamingtons. We were fundraising to send five of our Scouts and two Leaders to the 21st New Zealand Scout Jamboree in Blenheim in December 2016 and three Venturers and one Leader to the 51st Walsh Memorial Scout Flying School in Matamata, in January 2017. The fundraiser was a great success, with the Venturers exceeding their target of 1100 dozen. . I would like to thank Dan and his team at PakN’Save Bakery, Upper Hutt, for their support. (Abridged)
