35 residents, who have an average age of 80, took part in filming the video over a week.

Taking on the role of an international pop star had never crossed 79-year-old Norris Aitken's mind, but he couldn't pass on the opportunity to take a spin round the bowling green in his dancing shoes.

Pōhutukawa vandalism: Allegations among Karaka residents - was it an inside job?

Paul and Sue Wilson, who have lived on the road for over 10 years, arrived home on Monday from a trip to Waiheke Island to find a line of felled trees and a curt hand-written note in their letterbox.
