Is there light at the well in Cashmere?

I'm out of water and just wondering if there's any lighting outside the well at Swan Lake? TIA

We went last week later in the evening - I think there was a streetlight as we could see what we were doing.

There is a light in the well at the Historic Valley Inn tavern.

Go during the day

Yes, starlight, moonlight. There typically is a large amount of ambient light in the city at all times in any case.

Wear night vision equipment.

If you are talking about the Well in Waimea Tce, then you should know that is now only open between 7am and 7pm due to tankers filling up in the night.

I think it's Earnlea Tce isn't it?
And I hope Mr Laing will be paying income tax on what he makes from the sale of the stuff.

I would imagine he will be getting a tax refund considering the expense he has incurred sharing his well water with Christchurch.

supersapper, Aug 31, 7:10am
Why should he pay (if indeed he is, we've never paid for collecting water from his well) tax if the chinese don't? I think it's a wonderful service he has provided - I'm very grateful to be able to drink chlorine free water.

Mr Lang sounds a very nice man.

You don't know him do you.

Innuendo is just nasty.

fekim, Sep 18, 12:58pm
Tell me again how nice he is will you?

This piece says it all
The cost of the water from the well has risen steadily since early August but the well's owner, Duncan Laing, said this weekend's price increase happened for no reason other than "because [he] wanted to".

Will have to go to the Rhodes Spring at the top of the hill for free then. Would have to consider the fuel costs though.

He's been supplying water for free for eight years since the earthquakes. He's put in good pipes and taps and gets it tested regularly for ecoli - these things cost and I have no issue with him recouping that cost. If the council hadn't ruined our water in the first place this wouldn't be an issue at all.
