Brazen theft of large metal urn & cycad palm West End Rd

Allen from Herne Bay

Evening of Monday 11th Oct 10.42pm two men using a 2000-2002 Ford Focus 5dr hatchback stole one of two identical 1m tall cast iron garden urns complete with a mature cycad(sago) palm in it from right outside my front door. Total about 50kg.
All captured on CCTV but they were so fast (2min) that they managed to get away before being confronted. They left a luggage trolley & sunglasses behind which Police are fingerprinting. If the urn, palm or car are sighted or you can identify the thieves plse PM me or notify Police ref no OR-238748N.

An exciting way to stay active during the Covid-19 lockdown, explore Auckland and win prizes has arrived in the form of the Street Art Bike Challenge.

To participate people simple need to snap a photo of themselves, their bike, a piece of street art, and share the photo with the hashtag #streetartbikechallenge.

There's more to finance than a low interest rate...

Speirs Finance

Does a low interest rate equate to positive cash flow?

Before going ahead with the provider who has the lowest rate consider the impact of the suggested term on your cash flow. A low rate on a loan with a short term, which suits the lender and is not aligned to the life of the asset may result in negative cash flow. Positive cash flow and profitability may be more achievable when the finance structure is aligned to the economic life of the asset and your intended use.
