I have just signed a petition to get Connings reopened. Connings, a local produce food market was closed by the government. So, instead of driving 12 kilometres to Connings we now have to drive 18 kilometres to the supermarkets in Motueka. There we can buy veges at high prices which were transported from who knows to Motueka, handled by dozens of people.
In the 15 years I am in NZ this is only the second petition I signed because I support this.
Go ahead and sign it here: chng.it...

I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.

If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
