The Central Hawke's Bay District Council will hold its first meeting of the new triennium today.

Today's meeting will largely focus on establishing and appointing members to various committees, as well as looking at quarterly financial reports.

The public is welcome to attend the meeting at the Council Chambers.


The annual CHB Can-Do Food Collection is being held tonight.

Collectors will walk the streets of Otane, Waipawa, Waipukurau and Porangahau from 6pm collecting non-perishable food items for the CHB Food Bank.

Emergency services will also support the event once again.

People are encouraged to leave donations at the gates tonight for the collectors, or alternatively, can drop items in to the PGG Wrightson store in Waipukurau, local libraries or the CHB District Council office in Waipawa.
