.... WOW! I have just finished reading:
"Reggie's Trombone" by Peter Hall.
Talk about "Turning Back the Clock"!
I was engrossed, as it brought back so many memories of Upper Hutt in the sixties.
What vibrant times we had as youth in Upper Hutt.
Was also great to read many, NOW, familiar names (via Neighbourly) in the "Credits".
A big thanks to all those who contributed to ensure our past is not forgotten.

Watch out for garden thieves

Terri from Birchville

My friend had ALL her apples and crabapples taken - even the windfalls on the ground. Nothing left except one little crabapple on the road outside. Who is making jellies and preserves? Buy or grow your own. This fruit was needed by the owner who spent all year waiting for it. She is devastated and feels unsafe in her home now. It is not just about the money.
