Palmerston North’s playing and training grounds have been closed today after a deluge of rain overnight made them too wet for use.

Palmerston North City Council’s infrastructural liaison officer Jacquie Mannes said the grounds were open at the weekend but were closed this morning.

 ‘‘What we try and do is keep them closed during the week to try and get the best possible conditions for those competition and games on Saturday. 

Miss Mannes was unsure when the grounds would be reopened. 

‘‘Realistically, we’re in the hands of Mother Nature. There’s a lot of water on the ground.’’

Both playing and training grounds were closed for all but one day last week.

Do you have faith in police solving burglaries?

Yes - there's no faulting their commitment.

Mostly, but they are under-resourced.

Sort of - depends on when and where.

Not really - clearly a low priority for them.

Absolutely not.

Not sure - luckily I've never been burgled.
