MAGAZINE/MEMBERSHIP

I thank those who have let me know your membership. I have updated our data base. We are slowly delivering the Magazines across the area. Those who want it online I have attached a copy.  It is available on line and if your Group prefers the online version please advise me. Email: rns.coordinator@gmail.com, txt 0212583737 or ph. 094254662 and leave message. Name, Street and number of members.

Delivery: We have completed delivering in Whangaparaoa, north of Warkworth, Southhead. If  you know longer wish to keep of the Magazine please pass on to others.

INCIDENCES:

  1. There has been a incident of a member of a family seeing a hand trying to open a window of their home.
  2. There has been email messages saying because of the weather your computer has faults. (It looked so professional). One member who was expecting a installer to come to set up their new computer.
    They opened the email. Realised what it was. The advice is to shut down the computer. Ask an expert for help. Luckily it ended well. BE AWARE IF IT DOES NOT LOOK RIGHT DO NOT OPEN.
  3. Another scam: a phone call stating from the Government saying you have been chosen to receive $6000.

The continued message is take care of your property. Lock your vehicles, remove easily removed valuables like outboard motors, fuel cans, electric garden tools, mowers etc and store in a safe place.. Be on the look- out if you see a group of young people moving from one street to the next and you feel they may cause a problem or if a party has people all out in the street causing mayhem.  Ring  111.

Hi Margaret,
