HuttNZ Weekly Video Review 28 January 2020

Weekly video review of Upper & Lower Hutt activities and events via HuttNZ for January 28 2020.

This week:

Six60 Concert

Six60 played to a crowd of 20,000 at the start of their summer tour at the Hutt Rec Lower Hutt on Saturday January 25th. Great event, warm evening and a chill crowd.

Public transport to and from the venue needs to be sorted the only downside with some paying Uber fares of $70 to Maungareki (surge pricing).

Unfortunately not every local was impressed with having an event at Hutt Rec that went to 11pm

or the rubbish and rowdy concert goers following the event

HardPark 2020

HardPark 2020 was over Wellington Anniversary weekend at the Riverbank carpark. Largest park up of cars in New Zealand.

Imperial Tobacco to close

Tobacco plant plans to close Petone factory. Imperial Tobacco has announced plans to close its factory in Lower Hutt , which would axe 122 jobs. One of the largest employers in the valley, and has been here since the 1930s. Surprising that the local MP Chris Bishop (Hutt South) has had nil to say about this, given the loss of jobs. But given his past career, it is something that no doubt would make him uncomfortable to speak about, in case it refreshes voters memories come the election this year. He does find time to comment on other potential hot stuff (really!) but not everyone has forgotten his previous occupation.

Campbell Barry the Mayor showed a far greater understanding of the situation

Homicide Enquiry Taita

Police continue to conduct a scene examination and homicide enquiry following a 56 year old man’s death in Taita, Lower Hutt on Sunday morning January 26.

Emergency services were called to the scene near the intersection of Futter Grove and Hughes Crescent just after 5.30am. The man died a short time later and a cordon was set up.
