!! Warning: Cattle almost shot on Wech Access Rd !!

Hi everyone

This is an email to alert you all to be vigilant as early this morning a man was seen about to shoot a cow in a paddock on Wech Access.

He was startled as he was lining up to take the shot so he fled with his partner in a light coloured hatchback car.

This happened around 3:30am. Please take care and alert the police or your neighbors of any dodgy activity. Try and get a number plate if possible.

Stolen Gate, Released Stock.

Hi there

We just need to report further stolen property.

Our roadside gate was stolen from 900 Ahuroa Road Saturday It was an old gate that wouldn’t have any resale value. There were stock in the paddock which escaped onto the road. They have been found thankfully.

The gate is nowhere to be seen but there are signs showing it has been dragged along the road.

What a pointless act of vandalism!

We have contacted the police but in the meantime, if anyone heard or saw anything please let Toni and Jacques know 09 422 5116.

Stolen picnic table

Just to let you know we recently had a large heavy picnic table stolen from our section on J Tolhopf Road. They broken into our shed to and got a few tools and a bush cutter. 

Due to the size of the table it would have taken several people and a truck or 4 wheel drive car with a very large trailer to move it. 

Note from Admin: this was taken in the last week or so and it has been reported to the police.
