A BBQ and rugby kind of weekend?

The team Reporter from Taupō Times

If you're hoping to fire up the barbie ahead of the rugby this weekend, you're in for some good weather!

The sun is expected to shine across most of the country on Saturday, with the warmest day being Sunday due to northwesterly winds.

What are your weekend plans? Will you be watching the first NZ game?

Buy-back and amnesty for prohibited firearms and parts

Waikato Police

After changes to firearm laws, the government introduced a six month amnesty period. This means that anyone with firearms and parts that are no longer legal have until 20 December 2019 to hand them in to Police.

Police are providing a number of ways for people to hand-in their firearms or parts, including Police-run collection events - bit.ly...

If you can’t make a collection event, check whether there is a dealer near you - bit.ly...

If you think you have a unique prohibited item and are eligible to apply for compensation, find out how you can do that here - bit.ly...

Some firearms can also be modified and there is also a list of approved gunsmiths eligible to do the work - bit.ly...
