Water restrictions ease, but not all of them

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Western Leader

Auckland's dam levels are almost at 67 per cent capacity, with restrictions easing for commercial operators.

A ban on outdoor hose and water blaster use for residential users remains in place. With an agreement allowing Auckland to take an extra 25 million litres a day, do you think that these household restrictions are necessary?

Thieves strike Henderson Valley School in west Auckland

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Thieves have dampened the spirits of staff and students at Henderson Valley School.

They have allegedly swiped the brand new sun shade sheltering the junior sand pit in west Auckland.

The tarpaulin was installed in December but vanished last week.

A large navy blue canvas, it was chained securely at each corner to four tall metal poles.

It would have taken at least two people to carry the heavy canopy.

The students start back at school on February 9.

Phone the police if you have any information or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
