As the nation prepares for an absolute rager this New Year’s, there is widespread public concern that enduring Christmas hangovers could be set to spoil the fun. The Whakataki Times spoke to locals, to get their take on this issue of national significance.

“The most pressing concern for all of us at the moment is a local shortage of Powerade,” lamented Whakataki Business Association Chair, Garrett Veitch.

The influx of holiday-makers to Whakataki this season had proved a boon for local bottle shops and campgrounds, Veitch explained, “but our local dairies and Four Squares have struggled to meet the need for blue energy drinks.”
