An URGENT Message from

Alison Shrigley Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Pukenui Western Hills Forest Trust
G'day Whangarei, Ranger Ben here
Just a quick bit of news, we have had some kiwi scat found at Barge park. This is a kiwi who has since had its transmitter removed and is now wild. We humbly ask the awesome people of Whangarei if you walk your dogs at Barge park please keep them on a leed, especially on the bottom paddock adjacent to the forest. With your continued support our kiwi will thrive.

What do you think about a man being jailed for dangerous driving south of Whangārei

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Wayne Purdon, 57, can remember the crash that killed nurse Jodee-Anne Redmond and injured builder David Dell but he was seen swerving over the road for about 12km before he crashed into their vehicles on SH1 near Mangapai Rd. On Wednesday, he was sentenced to two years and four months in jail for his dangerous driving. What do you think?
