Mayor opens Les Dalton Dog Park

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Mayor Campbell Barry opened the Les Dalton Dog Park with about 500 people and a large contingent of dogs in attendance, on Saturday.
In opening the park, Barry paid tribute to the late Les Dalton, who came up with the original vision for the idea.
Dalton worked for the Hutt City Council's animal control services team for 43 years, and was a prominent local and national voice about dog control.
Michelle Dalton, Les' daughter, spoke on behalf of the whānau, and said that she knew Les would be looking down on the park with a smile.

Malicious email impersonating NZ Post circulating

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

New Zealand Post have published a warning to customers after several variations of a scam email were reported over the past 24 hours.

The email - while appearing legitimate - asks to correct personal details because of a failed parcel delivery.

The email directs the recipient to 'schedule a new delivery'. If any individual has received these emails, NZ Post has advised to delete it immediately.

For more information on the scam, please see the NZ Post's Cyber Security Alerts page.

More to come.

Pet of the Day: Siam the klepto-cat

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week we feature Siam the klepto-cat. Not sure where Siam lives but the submission made by Sine Goldfinch was to good to ignore.
"Siam came in my cat door six years ago with this sponge in his mouth and dropped it at my feet as a gift for me. His owner gave him to me because he just refused to go and six years on, he still brings the same sponge to me every night. I'm pretty sure it is the equivalent of roses in his mind."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.
