Ascot Community School Visit

It was a pleasure to visit the students of Ascot Community School and see the work they had done in getting better prepared.

If you live, in the Winton area, join us on Monday the 29th of May from 7pm at the Salvation Army Hall on Dejoux Rd. Well be asking about how you can make sure you and your community can be ready for a Civil Defence Emergency.

Yesterdays photo of snow in 2015 looks very similar to what has fallen in the Gore area overnight. Most of the main highways appear to be open except for the Northern motorway north of Dunedin. Winter driving conditions apply right across Southland. There may be one or two smaller snowfalls this morning but the freezing level is expected to rise to about 500 metres by evening. There is also the possibility of frosts. Keep warm and enjoy your weekend. ... See MoreSee Less

Here is the latest weather update.  Looks like some strong wind on the coast tomorrow followed by cold weather.
