I'm Kiri, a Neighbourly member. My life on Bader has been pleasant, I quite like Bader Street there is much to see just sitting at your window. There are many young people some school children and also pre-school age. Lot's of Maori faces and peppered amidst them all, are New Zealand Kiwi's, Hindu Indian, Asian and British families, etc. Each in their own way very special and very unique. Unfortunately for the very few neighbours such as the 81, Bader St with the many robbery attempts crime has woven its many faces. The car's screeching to a halt on their brakes to avoid collision with a young Maori child left to wander on to the road, young Maori people some with families causing all kinds of ruckus, yelling and swearing at the top of their lungs from daily eventually makes one such as I very weary particularly of young Maori youth. The drug shops that once stood on the street have since moved on, however, the Police still call frequently and blurs the events that take place either long before they arrive or directly after and usually by culprits themselves. Sometimes it can become quite frightening but no matter how mellow dramatic there is a sereness that I like to call home.
If you have something you would like to share I am almost certain someone such as myself would love to hear from you, just to share those odd moments and when enough is enough.
In the meanwhile, I would love to thank everyone on Bader and neighboring areas for my life here and the lives of my children, grandchildren, great-granddaughter, brothers, and sisters extended whanau who will all grow to enjoy the many tall tales of Hamiltons, Bader Street.
Merry Xmas and have a wonderful New Year.
