Continued from page 1. To be eligible, Tom & Luke needed to have had operating revenue of at least $500,000 in the 2015/16 financial year, but judged and selected from performance in the 2016, 2017 and 2018 financial years. Luke says that what he takes away from it is the understanding they have an amazing team who really are dedicated to what they do.

“There’s no off season and we’re focused on the product,” Luke says. Tom & Luke has been going for around five years and have 48 staff employed from Wainuiomata. Luke confirmed the business is committed to the Wainuiomata community. “We still have lots of work to do in this factory, plus we love it here. We appreciate

Wainuiomata,” he says. From here, Tom & Luke go to the 2018 Deloitte Festival of Growth to be held in Auckland on November 14. Deloitte Private Partner Bill Hale says this year’s regional winners showcase business success throughout the country. “T hese results clea rly demonstrate that there are a diverse range of businesses

across New Zealand that are achieving outstanding growth,” Bill says. “These companies have earned the right to attend the Festival of Growth, a full-day event where they will get the chance to hear from inspirational speakers, network with other winners past and present, interact with industry experts and celebrate their success together,” he says.

Residential garden watering restrictions came into effect last Sunday and are in place during daylight saving months, September 30, 2018 to April 7, 2019. The restrictions are in place across Wellington, including in Lower Hutt and Wainuiomata. In Upper Hutt, garden watering restrictions apply all year round. “It can seem a bit early to be introducing watering restric-

tions, but it’s never too early to get in the habit of watching every drop,” says Alex van Paassen, Wellington Water’s manager for community engagement. The restrictions allow for the use of a single watering system, such as a sprinkler or irrigation system between 6-8am and 7-9pm on allocated watering days. Allocated watering days are

when even-numbered houses water on even dates of the month, and odd-numbered houses on odd dates of the month. At this stage these are baselevel restrictions that the Wellington Water have outlined apply every year. They can be increased depending on demand and supply around the region. “We rely on rivers and the

Waiwhetu Aquifer for our regular water supply, and conditions can change quickly. While we do have the Te Marua storage lakes as back-up, these have to get us through the whole summer, and if we have another hot dry season like last year, we may need to increase restrictions,” Alex says. “If we all do our bit to reduce our demand, it will ease pressure on our supply and storage.”
