Damage to roadside fence – Wech Access Rd

On Friday 27th May my roadside fence on Wech Access was driven into and damaged. Three fence posts were broken and multiple wires ripped off.

A car part was left at the scene which is identified as being from a Mazda Atenza. The part is from the passenger side and is grey so likely to be from a silver sedan.

I am happy to return this part to the owner and discuss compensation for the cost of repairing the fence.

The Forest Bridge Trust are wanting to support families to manage their own trapline in the Ahuroa area to protect our native species.

What’s involved:

  • Attending a free local morning workshop on Sunday 10 April from 10am-12pm at the Ahuroa Community Hall to find out about the programme and get trained up – please bring the kids along too.
  • Joint a group of families that check a trapline between them (commitment about 2 hours, once every 4-6 weeks)
  • Fitness? Maybe some hills, a bit strenuous – but not too challenging.
  • You’ll have to be OK with dead pests
  • Trap checking equipment provided
  • Enjoy being part of the wider Forest Bridge Trust project

Contact for more information or to RSVP to the workshop.

Missing tabby cat

She’s been missing before and has become a bit of a wonderer but this time has just been too long for her to not come home. Her name is Zippy, she’s 4years old and has white tipped feet at the front and white legs at the back, she has a very pink nose and a white bib. She’s missing from Hawkens Road, Ahuroa.
She had lost her collar when she was last home, she is chipped.

Call Sarah on 0210652576 – Thanks so much


Suspicious visitor…

I had a visit yesterday afternoon from a young man, swarthy complexion, who I found wandering around by my front door. I went out to see who it was because the dog barked, he turned round and asked if I could fill his water bottle for him. Possibly an innocent request but if that was the case then surely he would have knocked on the door or called out, but he did neither. Anyway, rego of his ute is AZZ 279. I thought it was black but the police said they had that number as a green ute – it could have been a dirty green one. Anyway, it may be totally innocent but I know that there have been chainsaw thefts in the area recently so just putting it out there to be aware that the Christmas Shoppers may be starting early this year.

Whilst writing this post there was another suspicious sighting outside my property (on Wech Access) today around 2.20pm – some guy with bleached hair, stocky build, having a wee on the side of the road then appearing to check out the properties either side. This isn’t the place a normal person would stop on the side of the road. Again, may not be suspicious but I think it is. White car (looked a bit like a toyota corolla) rego MBD 804.
