Morning neighbours,

Remember the poor girl who was snatched off the street near the Hillcrest New World? The perpetrator has pleaded guilty to the crime, but it wasn't an isolated incident.

Taukiri Cash, 28, also stalked and attempted to ensnare several other young girls both before and after the incident.

Summer’s here! Be water smart

The Team from Smart Water

Water-saving tips to help you reduce your water use

Gardening
- Water early morning or late evening to prevent 70% of water evaporating.
- Give your plants a good long soak twice a week rather than a short daily water. You will encourage deeper, healthier roots.
- Use a digital water timer with a rain sensor– it switches on only when needed.  

Pool
- Use a cover to prevent evaporation and keep the water warm
- Keep your pool clean, wipe your feet before you jump in.

Play your part. We value wai in the Waikato.
