WEED SPRAY­ING

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.
