Cars tampered with

Kia ora neighbourly neighbours

Yesterday I noticed something different about my car - some pesky basket has tampered with my car firstly removed 1 tyre middle cap hub cap, secondly tried and failed with a 2nd one, the caps on at least 2 of my tyres were loose (as I checked one I noticed it had been unscrewed so I checked the others) and where one of the hub cap mid caps were removed a head bolt has been removed. I’m guessing why the other caps were not touched because who ever was doing the deed was spooked / disturbed by something.

I’ve reported it but officially that’s all I can do really as nothing was seen by anyone, so now I’m putting it up on here to let neighbours know and to keep aware of what’s going on in our neighbourly circle community.

We have lived in this little area for a few long years and have never had anything like this happen before, so now I’m keeping watch getting no sleep hoping to catch some bas-terd in action.

Hard to sleep when you know your property has been tampered with.

Why we're putting quality first...

Cooper's Pet Kitchen

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little more expensive than some, its nutrient density makes for smaller portions with more readily absorbable nutrients.

Get more bang for your dog’s bite with 50% OFF your first order with code NEIGHBOURLY.

This also means a decrease in what comes out the other end... less 'picking up' what they’re 'putting down' at the dog park if you catch our drift.

39 more speed breakers but not a single extra lane or traffic light to ease traffic

Anjali from Henderson

I suspect this is not to help us but to spend the … View moreUnless enough of us object before March 8th, Auckland Transport is going to add 39 more speed bumps among other things to the small area between Lincoln Road, Universal Drive & Swanson Road under the guise of "increasing safety". I suspect this is not to help us but to spend the money before 31st March so that the speed breaker construction company can get it all. If you too feel this money would be better spent on 1) making Universal Drive at the least 4 lanes all though, 2) a free left turn lane (from Universal Drive) onto Lincoln Road (next to Countdown), 3) Another free left turn lane (from Universal Drive) onto Rathgar Road, a sensor traffic light at the same (North end of) Rathgar Road where it meets Universal Drive.
In addition, Pomaria Road needs minimum 2 lanes when entering Lincoln Road so those turning right or going straight are not blocked by the left turning traffic that is waiting for crossing pedestrians.
I am sure you have more suggestions to add.
List of Roads & planned additional speed breakers (bumps) :
Pomaria Road - 5
Longburn Road - 4
Kingdale Road - 3
Larissa - 5
Harrington - 8
MildMay - 3
Edwards -2
Fairdene 4
Pinedale -3
Zodiac - 1
Mawney -1
In the 29 years I have lived in this area, I have never come across a single human death or serious injury due to speeding on any of these roads.
Speedbumps will increase the number of drivers suffering delays and consequently increase road rage, risky behaviour & breaking of rules.
The 5 speedbumps added to Rathgar Road’s 3, caused traffic disruption & inconvenience for months. It resulted in more traffic choosing an already crowded Lincoln Road. Also they are do not fit (too high) the 25K warning sign. They are made for 10K else damage the car.
Speedbumps etc. reduce badly needed and increasing need for street parking.
They add to traffic congestion as each user uses the same road for double the time or more (as 50K speed goes down to 25 or less).
They increase pollution and carbon footprint (more petrol more braking).
When injured, increases spinal pain when travelling even via ambulance.
The increased travel time could mean life or death for any who may need the ambulance/hospital fast

Please would you give your feedback online? See link below

Alternatively a sample of the form I filled is attached.
You can download a blank one from :

Please make time to do this or we will have to live with this just like the lousy bus route mess & disappearing bus stops unless enough people object. They told me only 12 people objected to the loss of 8 bus stops (Pomaria & Rathgar) and all the rest were happy.

Pea Straw Bales - $22 per bale

Each bale is 41cm x 33cm x 85cm, and weighs around 13kg. Much better value for money than the typical garden centres.

If you put a thick layer down, 1 bale is enough for approx. 9m2.

If you put a thick layer down, 1 bale is enough for approx. 9m2.
Pea straw mulch prevents loss of soil moisture by evaporation, but still allows rain to penetrate to the soil. It can reduce required watering by up to 60%!
A thick layer of pea straw can actively suppress weeds from growing through the mulch layer and prevent seeds of weeds from germinating.
As pea straw mulch decomposes, it releases nutrients such as nitrogen back into the soil.
Pea straw increases the organic matter in the soil. This improves soil structure and drainage, and encourages earthworms and soil microbial activity.

Price: $22
