Please follow our top tips to reduce the risk of mail theft:
✉️ Clear your letterbox in a timely manner
✉️ Put a hold on your mail delivery if you’re going away
✉️ Provide clear delivery instructions for couriers to leave a package safely hidden or secured within your property
✉️ Install security cameras and/or security camera messaging near your letterbox or front of property
✉️ Where practical, consider click and collect over delivery
✉️ Send parcels to a work address or ensuring you're home when they arrive
✉️ Contact Police (111 for immediate issues or 105 if it is after the fact) if you see people loitering around vehicles or looking into car windows
✉️ Engage in neighbourhood groups so more people can keep an eye out for suspicious activity

These tips are being shared after a 44-year-old woman will appear in Pukekohe District Court on 28 March charged with theft.
An alleged mail thief in the Pukekohe area has hand-delivered herself into Police, following assistance from the community.
Counties Manukau South Senior Sergeant MJ Riddle says Police were aware of locals discussing a mail theft on social media. A report was made to Police at the time in January and had included enough detail including CCTV footage and a vehicle of interest. Following Police enquiries, the woman has brought herself into the Pukekohe Police Station a few days later.

“This is a great result for the community and a timely reminder to the public to continue reporting any thefts from letterboxes.”
Senior Sergeant Riddle says
“Our community should be able to receive parcels and mail without concern of interference but unfortunately there are people in our communities who take advantage of opportunities to commit thefts from mail boxes and front porches."

“We encourage anyone who has been the victim of dishonesty offending to report it as soon as possible,” she says."

Join EarthDiverse, and local artists, writers and lecturers Peter Dornauf, MA and Norman Franke, PhD for a wonderful day excursion to the Auckland Art Gallery and a guided tour of the Gothic Art exhibition entitled GOTHIC RETURNS: FUSELI TO FOMINSON. Loosely termed ‘gothic’ the exhibition embraces everything from horror stories to hauntings and everything in between. Hitchcock was a master at conjuring these demons in film, but artists from the romantic period through to the present have dipped their brush into that dark inky world and danced with the devil of the ghoulish, the spooky and the downright unnerving. Participants can choose to explore some artwork of the AAG's permanent collection, particularly the restored Brueghel the Younger painting ('The Village Fair') and can have some free time to explore other parts of the museum, Albert Park and the near-by shops such as Smith & Caughey's or Unity Books.
• When: Saturday 23 March 2024.
• Bus departs 9:00am from in front of the EarthDiverse Centre at 401 Anglesea Street and returns around 6:00pm.
For more information and registration click the read more link below.
Price includes round-trip bus transport from Hamilton and a guided tour of the Exhibition. Lunch is on your own.

What do you think of plans to cut more jobs at the city council?

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

The scale of a proposal to cut jobs at Hamilton City Council by 7% is not worth the “destruction it will cause”, says a councillor.

But one of the elected members behind the proposal has hit back, slamming some councillors for their “self-serving rhetoric” and “selective narrative“.
