This is a long shot but does anybody know of a group from New Plymouth who have recently visited Great Barrier Island. A friend of mine in Auckland was there at the same time and has a vest belonging to one of the group and would like to get it back to its owner. Padded sleeveless jacket size L found at Hartington DOC camp kitchen on Feb 12th the day the group left the Island. She does not have any names but knows one of that group left it behind. You can reply to me and I can pass on your details as she will be visiting NP soon and can return it. 027 484 0467.

ASB Bank wouldn't accept cash?!!! Nor Eftpos!

Irene from Frankleigh Park

A few days ago I attempted to place cash at ASB New Plymouth in an ASB account as payment for goods. This was refused, as was my eftpos card. I was told that this had been so since Covid19..... What???? A bank that won't accept cash or eftpos? Even with a passport and driver's licence as proof of identity?
I understand the non acceptance of cheques as it requires some extra work with data inputting.... So.... why do they still dispense cash then? They still have an ATM outside...
So what happens if there is an electrical/electronic breakdown [like the Christchurch earthquake.....]. Personally, if I was a customer with ASB I'd be walking with my feet. I'm sure other banks would want my money.
