The hot, dry weather in Marlborough continues and water supply to vineyards in the area hangs on a knife-edge. Class B water restrictions took place in the Wairau Valley yesterday. A pulse of rain has seen the supply kick back in today, but a Marlborough District Council spokesperson warns the supply will be off again by the weekend. And warns Class A restrictions could take place in Waihopai within the next week. David Babich is the General Manager of Babich Wines. The company grows 80 per cent of its grapes in Marlborough.
2:20 Voices Of Faith - Steve Cournane and Rocio Figueroa
There will be a significant New Zealand presence at an international gathering in the Vatican next month, focusing on the role of women in the Catholic church. The event is called Voices of Faith. It's in its second year and grew out of comments from Pope Francis that "It is necessary to broaden the space within the church for a more incisive feminine presence". A song called Voices of Faith will be sung in Rome by Wellington blues singer Laura Collins. She'll be accompanied on piano by Wayne Mason, the acclaimed writer of hit songs like Nature. The song writer is New Zealander, Steve Cournane, and his wife Rocio Figueroa is second in charge of organising the event.

He says there is a lack of courage to embrace the Muslims of Europe as genuinely European - as citizens like everyone else.He's written about the issues facing Muslims in Europe for the New York Times.
