Poll: Was it the right decision to remove the statue of Captain Hamilton?

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi everyone,

The controversial statue of Hamilton's namesake, Captain John Fane Charles Hamilton, was removed from Civic Square about 10.50am on Friday.

It comes after a formal request from Waikato-Tainui and a man's pledge to tear it down.

What's your view on the removal? Was it the right call?

Cat attacks in Hamilton and surrounding areas

Ashley from Maeroa

***WARNING - CAT ATTACKS***

(shared from Facebook)

Sadly the SPCA have shown a disinterest at the moment about the antifreeze one but it is being worked on.

Please be extra vigilant and report all of these offenses to SPCA and police under the Animal Welfare Act 1999 (refer photos for WILFUL ILL-TREATMENT OF ANIMALS description and penalties).

Please also post these acts to this group as we will be collating these offenses.
THIS IS ALL ANIMALS, NOT JUST CATS - Please share all as this needs to stop!!!

Antifreeze poisoning: Nawton, Hamilton

Fur attacked and painted: St Andrews/Pukete, Hamilton

Petrol douse, shooting, various attacks: Willow Gove, Morrinsville

Annual Bookfair!

Community Activator from Red Cross - Waikato Service Centre

Hey Waikato👋 The annual Red Cross Book Fair that was set to take place on the first weekend of September at the Te Rapa Racecourse, will now be taking place on the 5-7 March next year.
In the meantime, we are looking to host a Pop-Up Bookfair in November - more details to be posted here in the coming weeks.

We are still taking book donations during this time up until the event. If you’re planning on a spring clean once the winter blues are over, you can donate your books that are gathering dust by dropping them off to our Hamilton Service Centre on Te Rapa Road.

We look forward to seeing all your wonderful faces and in the meantime keep an eye on our social channels for more updates. 📚
