Teachers turning to foodbanks and hardship grants

Josephine from Abel Tasman National Park

Kia ora neighbours. Teachers say they have been seeking help from foodbanks and hardship grants after the May 29 mega-strike cost them a day's pay. What do think of this? Are you a struggling teacher, or do you know a teacher doing it tough?

Police helicopter tracks thief from CDB to North Shore

Caroline Williams Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours. A man who allegedly stole $5-6,000 worth of down feather puffer jackets from Macpac Ponsonby in a "grab and run" robbery was apprehended on Lake Rd after police traced his vehicle movements with the Eagle helicopter. The man was charged with shoplifting and will appear in the Auckland District Court on Friday.
Have you heard of any other stores targeted for "grab and run" type thefts? Let us know in the comments.
