early on Wednesday about 1am I noticed a woman in our street entering the houses and looking around etc. watched her for about 10 minutes she went into several properties, I phoned the police explained what was happening they were great took all the details and the description of the person and by the time we had finished our conversation after about 10 minutes watching and monitoring the lady whilst I was talking to the police operator the police car arrived at the end of our street and took it from there, I felt that they took my complaint seriously and acted as quickly as they could, I live in Brookhaven Woolston and the street we live in is not on the way to anywhere so the person was not there for anything else than no good. Luckily I am a late nighter usually about midnight -1am before I go to bed, if I had not witnessed this person who knows what might have happened.
It is the time of year that these people go out looking for opportunities, we need to make sure our homes are secure, locked gates, windows doors sheds etc and ensure there is nothing lying around that would tempt them to enter you property.
To host international day/night games, Christchurch's Hagley Oval will require six lighting towers, but there's strong opposition to the proposal.
What do you think? Should the lights be installed so the city can host more cricket matches? Or should Hagley Park be left alone? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
Right now in the Pacific there is a life-threatening measles outbreak, and children are most at risk.
Outbreaks have been declared in Fiji, Samoa and Tonga. Thousands of people have been affected, and many thousands more are at risk as health authorities and medical professionals race to prevent the spread and impact of this disease.
Red Cross volunteers are working closely with Ministries of Health to support both response and prevention activities. Hundreds of people have already visited the mobile vaccination site at Samoa Red Cross.
You can help too. Donate to the Pacific Disaster Fund now to support this emergency response.
