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.
Hi Neighbours. What does it take to want to learn something new... perhaps interest, need, want, curiosity or a deep desire to better one's life or exploring new tools and techniques for personal development and self improvement. The next Rebirthing /Breathwork group meeting date is now set for Saturday the 13th March from 2-4pm in Tauranga, so if you are interested to perhaps join me at this event, please join this group below. We have been booked out on two other events as I only cater for a group up to 9 participants. There is a cover charge of $20. The group is called Meetup Group "Tauranga Self Exploration via Rebirthing/ Breathwork" www.meetup.com................ I am inviting everyone to be part of this group who is suffering from anxiety, depression, abuse or addiction, stress or simply having breathing problems. This meetup group which is presently growing will conduct regular group meetings in the application and experience of breathwork. It is fundamentally a breathing technique which helps to connect to often underlying and less conscious causes of stress and to help to resolve or remove them using the breathing itself as the tool and helper. The term Rebirthing here has no religious affiliation but more so one of being in spirit, inspired and inspirational to remove obstacles of trauma in its many forms from our life so we may live a life with much more freedom and peace and compassion. Something we all could do with some more in times like these. You need to join my group first before you can attend any such event. Looking forward to meeting you. If you have done some breathwork sessions before or attended a workshop these group meeting still can be very valuable to anyone who knows about the breath and its gifts and secrets it holds. See you soon. Peter PS. Breath is life (the breath of life) and better breathing brings about a better life overall. See you soon.

It's been heartwarming to hear stories from across the North Island of people taking others into their home and sharing a cup of tea together or fixing them a meal.
