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.

Recycling during lockdown

Angela from Rangiora

Hi Neighbours,
Just wondering if you all know during lockdown your recycle bins are being taken direct to landfill - I won't be putting my bin out until the recycle sorting centres are open again when level 4 is over.

Tell us the story behind your bear

Anna Williams Reporter from The Press

We're going on a bear hunt! People across the country are popping bears in their windows. But what's the story behind the fuzzy faces? Tell us about your bear - what's their name, where did you get it, how far have they travelled? Post a photo and tell us their story! You can also email maddison.northcott@stuff.co.nz if you've seen any bears in Christchurch you think we should cover. (Please mark any posts you don't want to see published NFP).

Astonishingly stupid

David from Rangiora

Have just cycled down church street and what do I see?
About twenty kids on the skate board park with parents sitting watching
With all the publicity how can this be? I see no difference between this and having a coffee which of course one cannot do (except at home).
