Hi Waikato,

Do you have a fire escape plan?

A fire that engulfed a house in Pokeno was found to have been caused by grass clippings catching alight on a lawnmower that was still hot from use.

Fire crews responded to the house fire on January 31, with four crews at the scene and another three dispatched.

Area Commander Geoff Purcell said that the occupants of the house were lucky to get out quickly. "This fire shows that fire can get very real, fast...It can take just three minutes for a fire to become deadly."

Share your thoughts below and please type NFP if you don't want your comments featured in your local community paper.

These are super easy to make and provide hours of creative play as well as encourage the development of your toddler's hand-eye coordination and attention span.

To make some chalkboard blocks of your own you’ll need to gather a few supplies (Bunnings or Mitre 10 should have everything you need):
• plank of wood
• saw
• chalkboard paint
• paint brush
• paint tray
• sandpaper

Cut down the wood into rectangles and saw the corners off one end to form a house shape. You can make the blocks as tall, short, or narrow as you’d like. Variety makes your city scape more interesting!

When the blocks are cut, sand all the edges and front so they are smooth and there are no rough spots. Then, simply paint over with chalkboard paint and let dry overnight before use.


Once the paint has dried, have fun creating your little city!

Need a forever home for Trevor

Hey everybody,

Bit of a situation and needing help fairly urgently...
For the past 2 months, Scotty, our volunteer, has been nursing Trevor (a community cat) back to health from a tragic event. For some time now, Trevor has been the resident and integral community cat at the Waimarie: Hamilton East Community House.

Unfortunately, his place has become unsafe for Trevor. As much as it pains us, he is needing a new forever home; and as stated - fairly urgently. Trevor is an amazing animal. He is very charismatic and has lots of love to give.

The owner we're looking for will be a responsible cat loving person. Someone who won't mind initially monitoring him inside for the first 1 - 2 weeks, giving him monitored outside time throughout, while he gets used to your place, getting ready to enjoy being outdoors unattended; confident that he (most likely) won't run away.

Ideally, someone who has a well fenced in, decent amount of space and not a unit living type situation. He is predominantly an outside cat. Also, you may already have harmless pet-friendly cats or dogs yourself, otherwise, Trevor will happily become the sole attention of your life.

If you are that person or know someone who fits that description, feel free to forward this post to them or tag them in the comments section below, and please contact us at Waimarie. Your help will be hugely appreciated! Thanking you in advance 😊
