Ruapuke Road will be closed this Sunday so the Hamilton Car Club can hold a tarmac rally. The closure will be between the intersection with Te Mata Road and Waimaunga Road from 8.30am to 4pm.

There will be a detour, following Waimaunga, Te Hutewai and Te Mata Roads and don’t worry if you forget there will be marshals out there directing traffic.

Over the last two weeks in the Raglan area there have been one family harm incident, one burglary, seven other dishonesty crimes, two wilful damage and five alcohol offences. 


Local police are reminding businesses, that could potentially become a target for Ram Raids, to take a look at their security measures. They say we have recently had stolen vehicles dumped in our town and unlawful takings of vehicles from Raglan. They also mentioned that a lot of smaller towns are getting targeted for Ram Raids at the moment. 


The development of a papakāinga on Wainui Rd is rapidly progressing, although it will be seven years before it is finally completed.

Onsite work has started for internal roading, earthworks and storm water for a 22 home site that will also have a communal area for the wider whānau. 

Once the site works are complete the first of the 3 stages will begin it’s development at the end of August.

And the District Council is seeking feedback on their General Policies Reserve

Management Plan. You need to have your say by 17th June and can do so via the council website. The plan will determine what activities can and cant happen on our public reserves. 

And in local sport both the men’s rugby team and the Roosters football team are playing away this weekend, with the rugby team play Marist at 2:45 and the Roosters playing Not Wade n Co at 11 in Fairfield.
