vandalism

New Plymouth Riding for the Disabled finally achieved their goal of a covered arena in January this year. It is a huge asset to our organisation, and we haven’t had to cancel a session due to bad weather since.
This all came to fruition through funding applications, sponsorship, fundraising, and a lot of hard work from individuals and volunteers.
It was disappointing and disheartening to arrive at our grounds on Tuesday to find parts of the arena had been senselessly vandalised sometime overnight.

The pictures are of slashes made in a wall, and a wooden gate in the arena fenceline was wrenched off its hinges and thrown in the nearby creek.

If you saw or heard anything suspicious at our venue at Barrett's Domain on Tuesday please contact our President - Kevin Neilson 0272737534

Thank you.

Our homes can be our greatest investment and protecting our homes against climate change has become more important than ever.

Our changing climate poses risks to our natural and built environments. Swiss Re in a global analysis of insurance risk said to “expect climate risks to raise global property premiums by 33-41% between 2020 and 2040”. The potential increase was deemed a direct consequence of our changing climate.

Our Climate Insights property report provides easily understood information on change to risks for your current or a future property. The report includes robust and actionable information for residential property owners, tenants and investors to enhance their property’s climate resilience.

Hello everyone,
hope you all are doing well. I am in search of a wasp infested place somewhere here in New Plymouth if you know any? It is a wee bit early to see wasps around but there can be places where they continue to grow throughout winters. Please let me know if your property or someone you know have any wasp flying around or causing nuisance. I will put something out to catch them.
Note: I am after common or German wasps and not the paper wasps that makes small nests over the fences usually
