Hawke's Bay Police are appealing for information following an aggravated robbery at the Fish and Chip shop in the Swansea Road village, Flaxmere, Hastings. The robbery occurred around 7:15pm, on Sunday 12 August.

Three offenders, wearing red bandanas over their faces have entered the store and jumped over the counter before assaulting the workers and taking money from the till. One of the offenders was held onto by the store workers and customers as they tried to escape, before getting away, and their shoe was left behind. The offenders then ran from the store towards the Sunderland Drive area.

Inquiries have so far revealed one offender riding a bicycle in the area for over an hour prior to entering the fish and chip store. The victims have sustained minor physical injuries, and are quite shaken by the incident.

This was a busy time of the night with plenty of families and people in the village, and a few members of the public were seen speaking to the offenders prior to them disguising themselves.

Police are appealing to those present around the time of the incident, and the wider Flaxmere community, to assist in identifying these individuals.

If you have any information, please contact Detective Constable Karli Whiu at the Hastings Police Station on (06) 873 0500, or alternatively, information can be passed through Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Do you support the teachers' strike?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Do you think primary teachers and principals should be striking? Thousands of teachers have taken industrial action on Wednesday, with dozens of rallies planned around the country. They aim to gain attention for better pay, conditions and incentives to attract new teachers. …View more
Hi neighbours,

Do you think primary teachers and principals should be striking? Thousands of teachers have taken industrial action on Wednesday, with dozens of rallies planned around the country. They aim to gain attention for better pay, conditions and incentives to attract new teachers. Although about 30,000 people in the profession are involved in the strike, not everyone agrees with it.

So, what are your thoughts on the strike? Do you think teachers deserve better pay? Or should they have stayed around the negotiating table for longer? Are you a teacher or parent with views on the topic? Let us know in the replies!

Hello everyone!
I thought up and started the food rescue group Nourished for Nil 18 months ago based in Hastings, Karamu rd. I began this, now rather ambitious, endeavour because I shuddered at the thought of what cafes did with leftover food at the end of each business day. I had read about people starting food rescue programs in France and America and that they were not only successful but also helped families who struggled with food security. I met a woman who started a food rescue in Palmerston North (Just Zilch) and was inspired to try it here! Anyway, long story short, Nourished for Nil has been running great guns here in our very own backyard now since Feb 2017. Our motto is Food Rescue, we aren't a foodbank so we aren't worried who comes to collect the food during our redistribution hour each day 430-530pm, because it would only go to waste otherwise. No conditions, no forms, no questions. Everyone is welcome!

We achieved charitable status this past June and just this week were able to employ our first full time employee (an amazing woman who has been on a benefit for years!) thanks to some seriously generous sponsorship!

Im posting here because we holding our Second Annual Fundraiser called The Rescued Plate, www.facebook.com... on Thursday August 30th at the Hastings Art Gallery from 6 to 730pm. Last years fundraiser was a HUGE success because we secured 3 sponsors who have since agreed to pay the rent of the building we are in and because the Clearview Estate Winery owner
www.clearviewestate.co.nz... came along and offered to host this year's event!
We were so rapt. So this month's fundraiser (all proceeds going to the continued running of Nourished for Nil ), will cost $50 a head and Clearviews head chef Peter Hallgarth will create delicious finger foods from only rescued food, plus generously donated Clearview wines will be available as well Brave Brewery beer to everyone. bravebrewing.co.nz.... We will also feature our latest 'day in the life' video shot by the talented local photographer Richard Brimmer, and auction a piece of donated art by www.mauriciobenega.com... also a Hawkes Bay artist.

I would like to invite everyone along for a great evening of getting to know more about what we do, how you can volunteer if it looks like your cup of tea, or donate to this worthy cause. Please pass this invite to anyone you think might be intersted!

THANKING YOU in advance and I hope to meet some of you on the night!
Feel free to check us out on FB we post regularly what's going on.

What a story 💙
WHY DOGS LIVE LESS THAN HUMAN
Here's the surprising answer of a 6 year old child.
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa, and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn’t do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker‘s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that dogs' lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ”I know why.”
Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.
He said, ”People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The six-year-old continued,
”Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay for as long as we do.”
Live simply.
Love generously.
Care deeply.
Speak kindly.
Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
• When your loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
• Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
• Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
• Take naps.
• Stretch before rising.
• Run, romp, and play daily.
• Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
• Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
• On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
• On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
• When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
• Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
• Be faithful.
• Never pretend to be something you’re not.
• If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
• When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.
That's the secret of happiness that we can learn from a good dog.
