Cooks Gardens has reopened this morning. A piece of flashing on the Whiskas Grandstand roof was starting to lift in the heavy winds last night. An assessment was arranged first thing this morning and we’ve organised a contractor to secure it. We're good to go!

We're heading home now as wind speeds are definitely starting to drop in Whanganui. We have staff remaining here at the Council through the night though so if you have any concerns you can call us on 06 349 0001. If you want to report a power issue, you will need to contact your electricity provider. Hoping we might be through the worst now - stay safe everyone.
