Will you give your support for our request for a Community Constable?

[via Margaret Faed, Rodney NS], 
 

A prominent member of our wider community, Vivian Pollock,  has started a
drive to have a Community Constable appointed to our Warkworth area which
will encompass from

Puhoi  to Leigh, including Algies Bay, Leigh, Matakana, Mathesons Bay,
Martins Bay, Omaha, Sandspit, Scots Landing, Snells Beach,  and Warkworth.


 

She has already had overwhelming support from the Algies Bay area, and also
various clubs and groups in the Warkworth area, such as the Anglican Women's
League, and the JP Association, the Bridge Club 

and the Warkworth Ratepayers Assoc. 

 

MP Mark Mitchell has also voiced his support.

 

Wellsford, Whangaparoa, Kumeu/Huapai,  Helensville and Orewa already have
Community Constables.                      Warkworth needs one also.

 

Please reply as soon as possible with any comments to the writer of this
email, as below..

NEW RED CROSS HAZARD APP FOR CIVILDEFENCE ALERTS:

 

Also get your phone updated with the …  New Red Cross hazard app in Auckland. Auckland residents are being advised to change their current civil defence phone alert system to a new national Red Cross hazard app.

Find out more about the Red Cross hazard app and download it.

Nationwide app for civil defence alerts

“We’re changing to a national platform for civil defence alerts and we’d like to encourage all Aucklanders to download the Red Cross hazard app so they can receive real-time alerts to help them stay safe in an emergency,’ says Councillor Sharon Stewart, Chair of the Auckland Council Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group Committee.Auckland will join Northland, Waikato, Wellington and other regions using the Red Cross hazard app to push real-time emergency notifications. The Red Cross hazard system is also being used by other organisations such as Geonet and MetService.

“The new app is free to download from the Apple store or Google Play. After 30 June, the current Auckland Civil Defence device will be decommissioned and will no longer be used to pre-warn you if there is an emergency,” says Auckland Civil Defence and Emergency Management Director, John Dragicevich.

Getting information during emergencies

“The Red Cross hazard app will allow users to stay informed about hazards and risks through their mobile devices.

However Civil Defence uses a range of different channels, including radio, television, SMS and social media to deliver timely information to make sure all New Zealanders know what they need to do to keep themselves, their whanau and their neighbours safe.”

CAR

Amongst our  members have we car expert. Our Opel Astra has just had the steering rack changed and now the *alternator has gone (3 1/2hrs on the side of the motorway, fortunately in a safe place). It has  105,813km. When we took the car over in May 14 it was given full service and checked over. Since then the gear lever fell off, it would not stay in park, needed new tyres, and other. It has been serviced regularly.

These have been corrected. The coordinator does about 9,000 klm. a year. Some advice please ph. 094254662

Record haul of stolen property recovered by Police at Dairy Flat

[Anyone having this misfortune to have been the victim of thefts in the area may be very interested in this, from Rodney Police = well done guys!]

Rodney Police have uncovered thousands of dollars worth  of stolen property at a Dairy Flat address, in what’s thought to possibly be the largest recovery of stolen goods in the Waitemata Police district.

On Wednesday, a search warrant was carried out at the rural property on the Dairy Flat Highway, after Police enquiries established that stolen goods were  suspected to be on the premises.

There were 12 shipping containers, 2 horse floats and a number of outsheds, full of what’s believed to be stolen property, including;

-Large quantities of high-end power tools including generators, jack hammers, skillsaws, drills, water blasters and building tools.

-Scaffolding

-Dishwashers, ovens, vanity units, door hardware, hot water cylinders, fridge freezers.

-Concreting equipment including cutters and compactors.

-Motorcycles / quad bikes.

-Dozens of bags of cement.

-Large quantities of fireworks.

Officers also found;

-A 30 000 litre water tank (pictures attached) that had been stolen in rural Waitoki and was hooked up to the house and half full of water.

-A boat on a trailer (stolen from Huntly)

-Six trailers

Police have spent the last 3 days at the address examining the haul.

The Rodney area has experienced an increase in construction site and rural burglaries in recent months, and Police believe the huge quantity of property at the address will be linked to dozens of burglaries in both the Rodney area, but also the upper North Island.

“The task of identifying who the property belongs to is going to be a very big job and we anticipate that this news will result in members of the public wanting to call us to check if it’s items they’ve had stolen” says Senior Sgt Andy King, Rodney Police.

“At this stage we’re in the process of removing all the property into Police storage and then we’ll be able to start work on identifying the rightful owners.

Each item has to be checked, the serial numbers and description recorded and enquiries carried out around ownership.

Next week we’ll provide details of a contact number that people can call, but at this stage we’d ask members of the public to bear with us while we get that process underway.

At this stage a 43 year-old man has been charged with receiving stolen property, but the investigation is ongoing and Police anticipate further lines of enquiry as the enquiry continues.

“We’ve put a great deal of resource into targeting the construction site and rural burglaries and we hope that this find will give some relief to the many people who have been victims of those crimes.

We’re committed towards finding the people responsible for this and I’m pleased to say that this development will take us quite some way in our search for the offenders” says Snr Sgt King.

A contact number for anyone wanting to claim or enquire about the recovered property will be released publicly next week.

You can also view this release, including any additional images, online at: http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/record-haul-stolen-property-recovered-police-dairy-flat

 

Tree Scam

We have reports of scammers in the area so please be careful and look out for any vulnerable neighbours who may be approached for these pests.

There a tree people who look genuine who are asking for cash up front. Like they cut down a tree, then demand more money to remove the rubbish. Also they charge excessive fees. My suggestion is use a well known contractor and talk to friends for advice first.
