Place of kind­ness

Central Leader - - LETTERS -

What a great com­mu­nity story to read your front page ar­ti­cle in the July 24 edi­tion about tetraplegic Amanda Lowry.

Step­ping Stones has been a place of kind­ness and good-heart­ed­ness for at least 15 years as we can vouch for.

Fif­teen years ago when our twins were born, the then owner/man­ager re­quired no fees for the last day our el­dest son spent with them when I was oth­er­wise oc­cu­pied at National Women’s.

This was a sim­ple act of gen­eros­ity to a young fam­ily, not asked for but much ap­pre­ci­ated.

We con­tacted Step­ping Stones to make a do­na­tion to the Amanda Lowry ap­peal to try to pay for­ward the kind­ness of a com­mu­nity busi­ness and ser­vice.

Thank you for the ar­ti­cle.

I sug­gest that the Ash St/ Rose­bank Rd in­ter­sec­tion in Avon­dale needs to be high on the list.

It is im­por­tant to keep this ar­te­rial route ac­ci­dent-free to keep traf­fic flow­ing and im­prove safety.

Plane nui­sance: An­gry res­i­dents have raised ques­tions about Auck­land Air­port’s pro­posed flight path changes.
