This afternoon at approx 3;45pm when my partner was on his way to work at Te Rapa Countdown a white SUV banged into MY car that my partner was driving. My partner did oblige with a horn toot and the 1 finger salute to the female driver who did NOT stop. You will know who you are because your SUV will have dark blue paint on it now where your new dent will be. I would like to let this female know she was lucky it was not me driving my car as I would have chased her down and she would not be happy. This year has been a shitty year so far with our cat mauled by dogs and now this lockdown with a severe income shortage. Now I have a dent in a car I can't afford to insure or afford to get fixed. If you can't drive decently or stop when you have done wrong then you should NOT be on the F#&%*# road.
Recycling collections have stopped due to safety concerns over COVID-19 being spread to our staff sorting recyclables by hand. Our team have been kindly emptying your crates to keep our streets safe and tidy as some people may not have heard about our changes yet.
From Wednesday (1 April 2020), recycling crates put out for collection won’t be emptied. Rubbish bags will be collected as normal. Paper and cardboard will still be collected but sent to landfill.
Lets all keep the police in England in our minds and hearts as they struggle trying to protect their fellow human beings; they have been abused physically and verbally and now have to contend with being spit at, deliberately.
I pray that they keep safe and continue to do their job at this trying time
