Vil­lage kind­ness

Re your front page story, (Sept 14): Are we a car­ing town?

On Fri­day Sept 15 I had a blow-out on my mo­bil­ity scooter. I had shop­ping on board and was de­cid­ing what to do.

A lady stopped within min­utes along with her friend and her son.

Tracey took con­trol of the sit­u­a­tion by tak­ing my shop­ping into her car and then Lynn helped me into her car while her son and Tracey pushed my scooter up to The Garage where Ben said I could leave it there till Mon­day when he would fix it.

I am de­fend­ing all the car­ing peo­ple who I have been in con­tact with since I came here to live 21⁄2 years ago.

I can­not be­lieve the kind­ness and friend­li­ness from our “An­gels” in Whanga­mata.

I truly feel for Dana but all she had to do was call out two words — Help Me!

I know the women of our vil­lage would have helped her if she had asked so I don’t want this in­ci­dent to re­flect on our An­gels and our men and young peo­ple who live here.
