Words of support needed for Pavel, Ivan and Ilaria

Dear All,

I believe many of you heard about the terrible accident at Woodcocks road on Wednesday evening August 30th.
Pavel Kravtsov and his children Ivan and Ilaria were delivered to Auckland hospital in a critical condition.

After the initial danger behind, they are starting to recover. This is a slow and painful process.
While they are receiving all possible support from the family, friends and hospital staff,
it would be of tremendous help if those who know the family could leave a few notes of encouragement with a personal touch.

Reading these warm comments will give strength to Pavel, Ivan and Ilaria and speed up their physical, mental and spiritual healing.

Please send your thoughts and wishes to Vasily Kravtsov (Pavel’s brother’s) email:
[email protected]

Thank you,
Dmitri and Lena Roukine

Rodney wide 60km/h speed limits proposed, feedback closes today


I have been shocked to learn that AT have proposed almost Rodney-wide local road speed reductions to a blanket 60km/h in what they’re calling a new ‘Rural Zone’. I’ve been shocked because I only learnt about this today, Monday 28th August, and their public consultation / feedback, closes TODAY.

All roads captured in that area will be reduced to 60km/h in a blanket zone based speed reduction. – This avoids SH16, that is not under AT’s direct control.

This is being proposed here: https://haveyoursay.at.govt.nz/kko

The interactive map is here: https://haveyoursay.at.govt.nz/kko/maps/katoa-ka-ora-interactive-map-of-proposed-changes

You are invited to provide feedback here: https://aucklandtransport.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_eP8kmDmTkGNjMnY

I’m amazed we haven’t heard anything about this in the media or perhaps I’ve just been living under a rock…?



Missing Cat – Hawkens Rd.

Dear community,
Our bellowed cat Iriska is missing from our house in Hawkens Road.
She is 2 years old short-haired manx (born with no tail) female, black with a white spot on her chest.
She had never gone too far from our house and always stayed inside during nights.
We are worrying if she might have gotten into a possum trap somehow.
If you see her, please do let us know. We will appreciate any help in locating her.
Call or text Pavel on 0221925730
