A warning to parents who let their kids walk alone up Wise Street.

Alice from Wainuiomata

On Thursday afternoon I pulled over to help a boy who had been punched and thrown to the ground and had his bike smashed on top of him ... he was very upset, and in pain apparently he’d been looking for a young friends home address and couldn’t find the house. He asked for help from some older teenage boys in school uniform. They beat him up and threatened him. Now this boy may of had some intellectual difficulties or he was younger than he looked which actually makes this abhorrent behaviour even worse. Thank you to the other young lad who knew this boy for helping me to get him home. This behaviour especially to those more vulnerable is disgusting so if you hear of this event from your kids please report it to the school so these young men can be dealt with. This happened along wise street by Pencarrow Crescent around 4pm. And I hope the boy who this happened to (who I won’t name) feels okay now and knows that most normal people would help him and it’s not normal to be attacked like this, he should feel safe in his own neighbourhood.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Porirua & Thorndon

"Kia ora – James Lough from New World Porirua here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is the Tohu Single Vineyard Riesling and for many reasons! First, it’s delicious with a zingy acidity. Secondly, it has a great story - all wine should start a conversation and the people behind this wine and their governance of the land give you plenty of that. Lastly, the wine sums up what the New World Wine Awards is all about: helping customers discover new wines that surprise and delight.” And Bob Dunkerly from New World Thorndon’s pick is the Stoneleigh Latitude Marlborough Chardonnay. “It’s an excellent wine, with delicious stone fruit flavours. It’s very approachable for anyone wanting to give Chardonnay a try.”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.
