disabled parking Problem

Adelle from Central Whangarei

Hello All

We shop at the countdown on port rd, Whangarei and have a disabled parking card and two years ago the white line from old parking places was visible and a driver attacked my elderly mother as he thought it was a legal park and members of the public helped out.

Sadly today I see that the line is back and others are trying to park in there again.

Can someone tell the carpark owner as no one seems willing to do so. Thanks in advance

Bread tags

Chris from Rural West Whangarei

Is anyone collecting bread tags for a fund raiser.? I have a honey jar fill, plus a heap in a cellophane bag.... The scouts collected them 12-18 months ago, prior to their Jamboree... Now I don't know what to do with the collection I have. Free to anyone that needs them. But must collect.
