14 WAIRARAPA NEWS, JANUARY 16, 2013 NEWS Masterton District Council NOTICES Informing the Community Call Centre 06 370 6300 // Fax 06 378 8400 email email@example.com // www.mstn.govt.nz Ruamahanga River Health Notice All river users are reminded that there are risks to health when the Ruamahanga River is high. When the river is below median or average flows, the Ruamahanga River microbiological water quality is generally good. The water quality deteriorates significantly when there is a "fresh", and rivers are high -- this happens during rainfall and for a day or two following. It is sufficiently poor at flows above median levels, that direct contact with the river should be avoided. Point sources such as water treatment plant discharges are the main sources of load on the river when the rivers are low. Diffuse sources, such as farm run-off, are the main sources when the rivers are high. Please note that the current Mfe/MoH's suitability for recreation grades (SFRG) for sites down the river have been identified for follow-up work by the Greater Wellington Regional Council to reassess river grades. Information on river flows and water quality readings are available on the Greater Wellington Regional Council website www.gw.govt.nz and at the Masterton District Council Offices.

This year it is open to motorcycles. Any profits made will be donated to the Starship Foundation. Event opens to motorbikes For the first time, Tui HQ's annual motoring display -- Mangatainoka Motors -- will be opened up to the two-wheel variety. Tui HQ manager Jenny Holmes says the popular family-friendly event, to be held on Sunday, January 27 at Tui HQ in Mangatainoka, is expected to attract more than 400 vintage, classic and hot-rod cars from all over the North Island. But for the first time, it will also be open to motorcycles. Mangatainoka Motors is becom- ing a favourite on the motoring dis- play calendar and this year we'd like to do things a little bit different,'' she says. Not only do we want cars but we're also asking for motorcycles to attend. We hope to make it a bigger event and, as in previous years, any profits made will be donated to a good cause -- this year it's the Star- ship Foundation.'' Faye Shingleton, a member of The Descendants Social Motorcycle Club, is excited about attending her first Mangatainoka Motors and showing off her red Harley Davidson which in recent years has been converted from a two-wheeler to a trike. Faye, who has always had a love of motorcycles since owning her first 125cc, says she will be joined by more than 20 members from the Woodville-based Club. It should be a really good day and it will be interesting to see all the different of varieties of bikes, chrome and wheels on display,'' she says. Mangatainoka Motors begins at 11am on Sunday, January 27 and will feature an old-fashioned show and shine for cars and motorcycles with prizes for the best in each of the different categories. There will be live entertainment and food available through local com- munity groups and Tui HQ Cafe. There will also be free Tui Brew- ery tours (11am till 2pm) while the Tui HQ Cafe, museum and shop will be open all day. There's going to be something for everyone at this year's new-look Mangatainoka Motors -- from the well-tuned cars and well-tuned-out Motorcycles, to the well-turned-out Tui Brewery Girls,'' says Jenny. Mangatainoka Motors, Sunday, January 27; Tui HQ, Tui Brewery, Mangatainoka; 11am-2pm; $15 entry per car/motorcycle. Also bring along a non-perishable food item for the food bank.
