Suspicious activity - Carter Road, Oratia

Sue Dell from Waiatarua Community Patrol

Hi folks
Please be aware that there has been some suspicious activities reported around the Carter Road area in Oratia this week - a home burglary on the 5th of March and an unusual occurrence today (where a man approached and stopped a woman driving in her car on the road around the 130's - asking for money for cigarettes).
Although this second incident may turn out to be harmless and unrelated, it was disturbing to the woman involved and very unexpected (and potentially unsafe to the man and motorists) on this windy, narrow road. He is described as disheveled, in his late 40's/early 50's, with shoulder length brown hair. Wearing shorts and a long sleeve top (possibly green).
As always, be vigilant about your home and personal safety and if you have any information please message us (or contact the Police).
Thank you
Waiatarua/Oratia/Henderson Valley Community Patrol

Poll: Do you think scanning should be compulsory at bars and nightclubs?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi Auckland neighbours,

A leading coronavirus expert is urging the Government to make scanning mandatory at such potential "super-spreader" venues as bars and nightclubs.

The pleas follow figures revealing daily use of the Covid Tracer app has plummeted to a fifth of its peak.

Last Monday, a total of 515,759 scans were recorded nationwide, down from the high of 2.5 million on September 4.

Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.
