Blueskin Bay radio news for Friday May 8

Blueskin Bay radio news for Friday May 8

Puketapu Radio presents Blueskin Bay local news in association with

Boil water notices have been lifted for Blueskin Bay after tests by the Dunedin City Council gave the new water pipeline the all-clear. The newly upgraded system has been operational for a few weeks but residents have just recently been officially told the water is safe to drink from the tap.

Tuesday night’s movie at the Waitati Film Society is a must-see. The Insider tells the story of a senior scientist blowing the whistle on his tobacco company employer which claimed ignorance of the carcinogenic nature of cigarettes and the effects of nicotine addiction. It stars Russell Crowe. Meet at Bill’s Place, Orokonui Rd, at 8pm.

We may be looking down the barrel of winter with snow forecast to low levels this weekend but that shouldn’t cause us to go into hibernation. For instance, at Warrington Hall on Tuesday nights there’s Indoor Bowls at 7.30pm. No longer the domain of third agers, today, bowls appeals to all ages. New members are welcome and there is no nightly fee. Plus they claim to be a very friendly bunch of people.

Winter is also an excellent time to catch up on all the reading you’ve got behind on over the past few months. Blueskin Bay Library has a huge range of books and movies to keep you entertained on chilly winter evenings. The library is open every day from 2pm, except Saturdays when it opens at 10, and Sundays when it is closed. Books can be ordered online and delivered to Blueskin Bay Library for pick up, if the title you want isn’t available here.

The annual Blueskin Playcentre jumble sale is only a fortnight away and items to sell are still being sought. They may be dropped of at the playcentre Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9am and noon.
