Please be aware someone has deliberately chainsawed a tree across the road. Council are in attendance now. The tree has been cut to fall onto the road and fortunately we saw it in time. Please take care.
Just making all aware, after a beautiful weekend away in Takaka, we arrived home at 1:50 yesterday afternoon to find our home had been broken into. We travelled away for the kids soccer games. On arrival I noticed our front door was left wide open, walked inside to see bedrooms were turned upside down, all our personal belongings rummaged through. Forensics have said they would have used a crow bar to force open back door destroying both locks. A Canon camera valued around $1000 which was left behind by mistake, a few sentimental jewelery items and hair straightener is what we have noticed missing so far. Such a huge distress for our family so unsettling, makes it worse when you don't have answers and knowing we may not get any either.. just had to make you all aware, so keep yourselves and homes safe neighbours.
