missing cat

Derek from Merrilands

Hi. I'm asking everyone who lives near Summerset Retirement Village in Fernbrook Drive, Vogeltown to please go and look around their properties and in sheds etc as my 85 year old mother is really distraught as her beloved cat Tigger has been missing since Thursday. He is a dark Tabby - long and thin, about 7 years old. Please Please look out for him. As we are in lock down I am finding this really hard, not to be able to go and see mum. Tigger is her beloved Companion. Please share this and if you know of anyone who lives near there please ask them to look for him. Phone 0277597021 if you have seen him. Thanks

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.
