“It’s been pretty good. I’ve been at the pools most days.”
“It’s been very appealing, definitely.”
“I’ve been in Gisborne, where it was 33C. I got so sunburned.”
“I’ve been away but I think this is only the second nice day since I’ve been back, so hopefully it gets sunnier.”
“Today’s beautiful. It’s been great getting outside.”
Bladester Red, Wainuiomata “It’s so good. We’ve been out getting a tan.”

Library heads outdoors By Emma McAuliffe
The books are hitting the outdoors this month at the Wainuiomata Community Library. The library has been running Summer Stories outside every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in January. Librarian Renee Hurley, who has been taking the story times, said it was a great opportunity to get outdoors. “It’s been really enjoyable so far.
It’s nice to get outside and do some reading,” she said. Renee said the stories would be best suited for younger children aged up to five year’s old however all ages were welcomed. Summer Stories takes place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 2pm onwards. Meet on the grass outside the car park entrance of the library. The regular preschool story times will resume indoors on Friday, January 20 at 10.30am.
