Oringi to close

The shine has been taken off a beautiful day here at 40S as the expected formal announcement has been made that Oringi will close.

Not bad PPCS - almost 500 Tararua workers out of work in a district that has under 19,000 residents total. That is even worse in Dannnevegas where it could be 15% to 20% of the workforce.

Still, the only industry in town that has recently undergone massive expansion will do very well thank you. Yes, WINZ is reported to be assisting potential clients.

And yet ratepayers will still afford expensive new paving imported from England and a large Viking statue.
