Stolen Car Number Plates

Lynne from Wainuiomata

WARNING: Yesterday a work colleague had her car number plate taken off while parked at Countdown Petone. Luckily someone either disturbed or came along and hindered the thief as it was found on ground and handed into supermarket counter. This happened during daylight so if you don't have tamper proof screws on your licence plate, get some. Repco, etc sell them.
Share this with all your friends as many people shop at this supermarket but you can be sure it is happening all around.
UPDATE: Happened a few months ago to another person and apparently has occurred at other Hutt Valley supermarkets.

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

We're going on a bear hunt! People across the country are popping bears in their windows. But what's the story behind the fuzzy faces? Tell us about your bear - what's their name, where did you get it, how far have they travelled? Post a photo and tell us their story! (Please mark any posts you don't want to see published NFP).

At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
