A BIG THANK YOU TO RUDI Du PLOOY

This M.P. really went out of his way to help my husband and me after a Hamilton City Council employee savaged plants of ours growing inside our garden along a wall that borders a public lane.

Rudi never forgot about the complaint I had raised at this website. He kept contacting me periodically over many months asking if the HCC had done anything about making reparations for the damages caused. I am not in good health and kept putting the matter off. Also because it was so upsetting each time I just thought about the HCC employees extremely rude and arrogant attitude and conduct towards me, and, how he had brutalized shrubs and trees - that hubby and I had specifically chosen and lovingly planted to attract birds - without any care being shown for the damage he had inflicted on them.

I have never received an acknowledgement from HCC for the damages caused to our plants by their employee but with Rudi's encouragement and help they did eventually deliver a large shrub to my property recently with a big bag of fertilizer too. I was grateful for both, said so, and even gave each of the two HCC employees a big hug, but, the apology was what I was looking for but that important part of settling my dispute with the HCC never happened. Also, my husband had previously been told by an HCC employee who called him that the HCC was going to give me a few small shrubs to fill in the gaps created by the hacking away of growth which opened up spaces of visibility when part of the purpose of planting the shrubs and trees was to provide us with privacy. This too did not happen and hubby and I are now struggling to find a suitable position for the new large shrub.

Without Rudi this would never have happened. Kudo's to you and again a big hug for being such a special bloke.
