THUMBS UP & DOWN

CHB Mail - - NEWS -

■ Thumbs up: to the staff at West­pac Bank for the aroha they showed my wife after her fall in­side their door­way. Happy New Year.

■ Thumbs up: to McCutcheon hay con­trac­tors for be­ing so pa­tient and kind to the young trac­tor fan down Rath­bone St — you made him very happy.

■ Thumbs up: to all those busi­nesses who do­nated item for the Waipuku­rau Scouts Christ­mas raf­fle. Count­down, Mitre 10 Mega Hast­ings, Unichem Phar­macy, Sports world, Hunt­ing and Fish­ing, Story’s Cloth­ing, Gifts Setera, Food for Thought Or­gan­ics, Two Tani­wha Kitchen and Bar, Paper Plus, Coun­try Col­lecta­bles, Sil­ver Fern Farms, Hello World, Polly’s, Kelz Cof­fee, Arataki Honey, Ha­tuma Cafe and Jean Sterin­sen. The raf­fle has been drawn and the win­ners have been no­ti­fied.

■ Thumbs down: to the in­sti­ga­tor of more jud­der bars at Pour­erere Beach (over 20 jud­der bars and humps plus some ropes). If we had a tsunami warn­ing we have to va­cate im­me­di­ately and what chaos they would cause with peo­ple try­ing to get out.

■ Thumbs down: to the per­son who felt that the Christ­mas tree on the cnr of Ru­atani­wha St and Poron­ga­hau Rd was “truly pa­thetic”. Even though it may not have been ev­ery­one’s cup of tea, it was still some­one’s cre­ation and some pride was put in it. Words can hurt. Sad to read some­one in the com­mu­nity could make such a judg­men­tal com­ment.
