Good news!

The Team from New Zealand Police

Thanks to the brave and quick actions of these members of the public (pictured centre and centre right) – an offender who was trying to make a getaway after stealing money from a Henderson dairy was stopped and swiftly arrested. 👏

Earlier this month, one of the owners of the store was working behind the counter when a man entered the store and demanded money.

He walked behind the counter to the cash register and took a large sum of money, but the owner very quickly managed to activate the anti-theft smoke canon and the offender fled the shop.

Seeing what happened, the members of the public chased the offender and caught him, holding him until Police arrived soon afterwards.

He was then arrested and taken into custody.

A 40-year-old man has been charged with theft and was due to appear in the Waitakere District Court last week.

The money taken was returned to the dairy owners (pictured on the left), who were very grateful to those who stepped in to help.

A great result and example of people going above and beyond to look out for people in their local community.

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

Tickets to Yesterday Once More

Michelle from Linton

Hi has anyone bought tickets to the show Yesterday Once More? It was due to come here in 2020 but was postponed until 2021 because of covid. A dear friend of mine had purchased 4 tickets worth over $300 and now the show is not coming to Palmerston North, however she has not received a refund for her purchased tickets and seems to be having a hard time getting anyone to sort it. Has anyone else had this problem?
We rang consumer NZ and they said the company she bought the tickets from (through Regent Theatre) had gone into liquidation and put us through to someone else that said they had not. I see on the internet shows in other cities still have their dates that they are supposedly going ahead but not Palmy. Can anyone help with this?
Many thanks 😊 My friend is a lady in her 60's and I really feel for her 😒
