Power Company

Norm from Swannanoa - Ohoka

Discovered this hole in North Eyre Rd the other day and is the result of a power pole being removed and not filled in.
How dangerous is this seeing as it is public land and not private? I know if I done this I would end up in court and fined for leaving this in a dangerous position where the public can injure them selves, yet when you are the power company this seems to be okay. Yet the maintain on there website safety comes first??????

Birds roosting on guttering

Christina from Rangiora

Hi has anyone got any tips on removing birds from nesting in guttering? Being woken up at 5.30am is frustrating & seems to have gone on for months?!. There are gutter spikes I could get placed. Does anyone know if these are quite pricey?
Any tips welcome.
Many Thanks
