Community driver mentor programme being brought to Rangiora

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

A driver mentor programme being rolled out in Rangiora aims to break down barriers for unlicensed drivers.

The Community Driver Mentor Programme, which has helped almost 800 drivers since its inception, will soon be available in Rangiora.

Rangiora area coordinator Julia Graham hopes to enlist the help of 20 volunteers mentors in the area. Each volunteer needs to have held a full driver licence for two years and be willing to have a police check.

Mentors also need to attend a workshop, undergo some in-car training, and be available for two drives a week.

North Cantabrians in hot debate over cause of mystery noise

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

A mysterious night-time droning noise is driving some North Canterbury residents insane, but no-one has been able to confirm its origin.

Suggestions flooding social media include 5G towers, seismic activity, angry bees, big brother, electric fences, and the global hum — a phenomenon reportedly experienced worldwide.

The sound has been reported in Belfast, Kaiapoi, Woodend, Rangiora, Mandeville and further afield to Ashley and Loburn, with some saying it keeps them awake at night.

Have you heard the noise?
