Our War Memorial

Jet from Ahuriri

Dear Kirsten Wise I acknowledge and appreciate you owning up to your mistake regarding our War Memorial in todays paper but pertinent questions remain. I feel compelled to express that as a councillor should it not be your job to make sure before voting on anything concerning the great people of Napier that you have all the facts and take into account our wishes. How can we now trust any councillor knowing you did not do due dilligence before making such a controversial vote. The history was available for anyone to research and our older citizens made the facts very clear but were dismissed as if they were just an annoyance.

Paul Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Are you disgusted by the amount of unnecessary plastic packaging for products sold in supermarkets?

We've gotten rid of plastic bags from our supermarkets, but many shoppers reckon that should only be the beginning.

A national day of plastic protest has been organised, encouraging shoppers to unwrap and leave unnecessary plastic packaging behind at supermarkets.
