The Brook Valley Community Group and the Court of Appeal hearing June 2018

Helen from The Brook

This appeal was based on the previous judgement that hazardous substances such as eco-toxic poison baits are not seen as a substance when in a river or on a riverbed and the costs awarded by judge Churchman against Brook Valley Community Group (BVCG).

This appeal was based on the previous judgement that hazardous substances such as eco-toxic poison baits are not seen as a substance when in a river or on a riverbed and the costs awarded by judge Churchman against Brook Valley Community Group (BVCG).

Below is two short videos with Lawyer Sue Grey.

Video 2: Sue Grey: Poison Legalities
youtu.be...

Some staunch Sanctuary/council supporters would prefer BVCG to pay up and go away. The legality of this poison drop has nation wide implication which needs to be settled by law hence BVCG is following through what we started even though our Valley were poisoned.

As for paying up. This is my personal view: 'The question of why should a community group pay the Sanctuary expenses when their legal representation had been pro bono? David Butler announced during the Sanctuary AGM that they had received the value of $600,000 pro bono work from their law firm and in addition the Sanctuary set up a Givealittle page and received further $32.000 from donations towards legal expenses. I don't believe it is right. Aren’t the council/raterpayer donations enough to keep their $300,000+ salaries per year enough?'

The appeal was held in front of three judges, no new evidence were allowed into the hearing. It is expected to take about 2-3 months before we hear the outcome of this appeal.

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Does it make sense to buy teenagers bigger beds so they have more room to grow? Or, like writer and mum Jayne D'Arcy, do you think a double could equal trouble later on?

After debate around whether Matariki should become a public holiday, ACT leader David Seymour said he was "open" to public holidays being scrapped in New Zealand - well, all but Anzac and Waitangi.

He says people should be able to make their own holiday arrangements, rather than the Government telling us when to take the day off.

We want to know your thoughts. Should people be able to make their own holiday arrangements? Or should we leave our holidays as is?

I have kept this up every day since then and now have 2252 original works available to anyone interested in this subject. My first book, 'To Insanity And Beyond' by t.j.hurford was published by Audio Arcadia in the U.K.. (couldn't find an NZ publisher/agent), is available on both Lulu and Amazon or through the publisher. My poem today is about a failing nation, but my work covers many subjects from aliens/sci fi to romance and war themes, humour and religion. I am heavily influenced by the English classicists, Coleridge, Wordsworth, Milton et al. and Rudyard Kipling as well as 'Carry On films' etc.. Please take a look. I also write short stories at oswald'slamppost...

Steve is fighting cancer and needs to go to work to have a reason to get out of bed each day. Maureen took in extra work to cope financially and wore her shoulder out in the process, needing surgery. With the burglary they have lost the means to get back on their feet. I set up this Give A Little fundraising request for them. Please have a look, spread the word and maybe spare a few dollars. Every little bit counts. THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE.


The picture is of their workshop with the vehicles Steve was working on and cant finish now...
