Care­taker ‘not a happy chappy’

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Sev­eral strong-armed thieves stole a steel bike rack from Ti­tahi Bay School last Mon­day night. The rack was four me­tres long and half a me­tre wide, and would have taken two or three peo­ple to carry over the school’s locked gates, care­taker Steve Jack­son said. ‘‘I’m not a happy chappy.’’ The rack held 20 bikes, and was well-used, he said. ‘‘Lots of kids bring their bikes. Some­times it’s chock-ablock, there’s not enough room for half of the bikes.’’ Po­lice have con­tacted lo­cal scrap deal­ers telling them to watch for the bike rack. Mr Jack­son has pad­locked the school’s other bike rack to a chain link fence.
