According to local resident Rob Harris, Carterton residents who commute to Wellington could be open to the opportunity to work one or more days a week locally. I don t think the Council or locals generally, recognise the value our commuting citizens bring to the District, Rob said. Young families who have bought houses in Carterton for affordability and quality of life reasons, are really making a sacrifice, with the likelihood that the breadwinner is committed to 15+ commute hours per week until retirement. That s real commitment and if we add in the higher salaries and spend- ing power of people who work in Wellington, plus the fact that they underpin property values, shop in local businesses and keep our school rolls healthy, we can see that this is an undervalued group. An E-Commute Hub could provide hi-speed broadband, phones and video conferencing. These would ensure that an employee of a Gov- ernment Department in Wellington is almost as available to his/her col- leagues as they would be had they travelled to Wellington, he said. Putting new hi-tech innards into the old Court House seems to me to be a Carterton thing to do. We suc- cessfully integrated the iconic Library building into the Events Centre complex and that has been an outstanding success. Equestrian arena funds A donation of $20,000 has been given by the Eastern and Central Community Trust to the Masterton Agricultural and Pastoral Associ- ation for the development of a new all-weather equestrian arena at the Solway Showgrounds. The proposal is part of a plan to transform the showground facility into one of the top equestrian venues in the North Island and bring major events to Wairarapa. The project is estimated to cost about $90,000. The Community Trust has been an ongoing supporter of the Solway Showground develop- ments. The Wairarapa Equestrian Group, eventing, showjumping, dressage and pony club members are supporting the all-weather project, which will give the district an all-year-round facility. Riders currently use a grassed oval but it becomes unsuitable during the winter, with horse hooves damaging the surface.
