THUMBS UP & DOWN
■ Thumbs up: to the volunteers that helped out with the upper Tukituki River cleanup.
■ Thumbs up: to the CHB Community Patrol volunteers for looking after all the cars in the carpark at the CHB Sports Awards. It must have been a long night for them.
■ Thumbs up: to CHB Motors Waipawa for screening off their car yard. It's a much tidier look for our town. Thank you.
■ Thumbs down: to the couple catching eight roosters and a mummy chicken sitting on eggs, using fishhooks and bread at Waipawa River. I hope the community keeps a look out to save the remaining few. Shame on you both.
■ Thumbs down: to the number of drunk and silly underage teens at the Waipukurau Bull Riding event after the A&P Show. No respect for those who were there to enjoy the event.
■ Thumbs down: To the commentator at the Waipukurau Bull Riding for the sexist “barefoot and pregnant” and “better class of girlfriend” comments and disrespecting our new police sergeant.
