My Kind Neighbour nomination

Trish from Frankleigh Park

I would like to nominate Bev Heaysman as the "Super Neighbour"

I have recently had spinal surgery (x 3) and Bev has been there with meals, taking me to appts, daily calls and a caring friendship. Nothing is a inconvenience - Bev is most willing to help me in any way.
Recently I had quite a fall in the garden - during lockdown, and Bev came to my assistance without any hesitation. Bought me back to my house, cleaned the wound, settled me down and made me a cuppa. I had to collect something that day and Bev went out of her way to ensure this was done. I called Bev that day, my Florence Nightingale
Bev is the most caring and genuine person and I am so proud to call her not only my neighbour, but a very dear friend. TD

Airport Company wants another $20M !

Peter from New Plymouth

I was one of those invisible ratepayers who made submissions to the NPDC about our new $30M airport.

It was neither needed nor warranted in my opinion, our Mayor on the other hand opined that " it would keep the tills ringing" . So hows that going Neil?

While we were assured that it would not ever be a burden on the ratepayer, no sir not ever, it was entirely predictable that it would be given the councils, any councils, history of dabbling in commerce. It was just a matter of when and how!

And now they want another $20 million or so. Outrageous.
Its time the council was called to account and some resignations tendered . I'll hold my breath.
