Sum­mer hit­ting Whanga­mata

Coastal News - - News -

What a cracker Labour Week­end, town was buzzing in a great way.

Good to see a lot of fam­i­lies en­joy­ing what we have to of­fer as a com­mu­nity, so keep it up.

Al­ways a few lit­tle CRIT­TERS hang­ing around though, which keep the lo­cal cops busy.

Drugs

We are keep­ing the pres­sure on the lo­cal drug­gies, so please keep all the Crimestop­pers info rolling in on 0800 555111.

Po­lice will also be on high vis­i­ble pa­trols in the lo­cal bush, tar­get­ing cannabis grow­ers and poach­ers — oh and wave for the cam­eras.

Bad driv­ing

Again we have is­sued a num­ber of in­fringe­ment no­tices for bad driv­ing and speed, we have had a shock­ing road toll over Labour week­end, so please do your bit and SLOW down.

Po­lice will con­tinue to tar­get bad driv­ers so please en­sure , seat belts are worn and your ve­hi­cle is up to date.

Liquor ban

The liquor ban has been back in force over this week­end and so far Po­lice haven’t had any ma­jor is­sues but sad to see peo­ple wreck­ing it for oth­ers.

Po­lice dealt with some youths who thought it was a good idea to throw bot­tles over the fence into the lo­cal camp­ground.

What dan­ger­ous be­hav­iour and it was a mir­a­cle that no one was in­jured, so it seems there are still a few NE’ER DO WELLS out and about.

Beaches

The best beach in New Zealand was look­ing mint on the week­end, just a re­minder to some to please en­sure you take all your rub­bish off the beach so it can be en­joyed by all.

We are keen to get the same award in 2019.

Thanks

Staff at the lo­cal in­for­ma­tion cen­tre would like to thank the good Sa­mar­i­tan who handed in a lost wal­let on Mon­day.

The wal­let con­tained CASH and the very happy owner came in and got it, with all the cash in­tact. Great to see hon­est hard-work­ing peo­ple out there, again this shows the true value of a fan­tas­tic com­mu­nity.

Po­lice also would like to thank this per­son, who we be­lieved to be a lo­cal Whanga­mata res­i­dent. Nice job Chief.

Happy Days.
