More Upper Hutt History ...

Sandra Alexander from Upper Hutt: Wider Community Connectivity

.... 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.

Poll: What do you think of CCTV on private homes?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.
I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?
If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
