Would you dare?

Trupti Biradar Reporter from Stuff Travel

It's a cross between a fighter jet and torpedo - that looks like a shark - and this Queenstown ride has been discounted to encourage more Kiwis to travel.

Children in Peril in Raumati Beach traffic

Why Won’t Council Protect Kids from Dangerous Traffic at Raumati?

Why Won’t Council Protect Kids from Dangerous Traffic at Raumati?

Alan Tristram is asking Councillors and Mayor Gurunathan why they appear to be doing nothing to protect young children from traffic dangers at Raumati Beach.

He says: “The situation is so bad I’m writing this open letter to elected officials asking why they have done nothing effective to protect young children from the chaotic traffic.

“Mayor and Councillors, you seem to devote a massive amount of time to prestige projects, and climate action, but nothing to provide basic protection for our young children.

“Last year we arranged for Cr Janet Holborow to see for herself the dangers faced by children from two schools, and three early learning centres, as they make their way to lessons.

Cr Bernie Randall has also taken an interest since his election.

But eight months after we raised the issue nothing effective has been done.

I am a single lady 65 yrs of age non-smoker, don’t drink and very quiet but with a disability and about to do my third shift in two years because of;
rental house was sold after living there for eleven years
The owners of the rental I was in had a serious situation which resulted in rental house being sold
The owner decided not to renew my lease so that her brother could move in

All these places were agreed that I would be there long term which the first one was and yes I know that being in a rental is not a secure position to be in.

Because my physical health is deteriorating I am looking for a long term 2 bedroom house/unit/townhouse which would be a single story place, with a shower (not one over a bath as I would not be able to get into the shower) and a garage with an auto opener as I would not be able to open the door otherwise. A garage or shed is needed to house the mobility scooter. Currently I am paying $360 a week and anything higher would be as crippling as my physical health. As I am currently in Otaki that is my first area to be thinking of but would also consider Waikanae and maybe Paraparaumu. Anything further South or North is out of the question

Please don’t tell me to apply for a council place or a housing place because I have applied for those but there are hundreds of people before me needing a roof over their heads as well and yes I look on Trade Me several times a day
Please contact me on 06 364 0192 or labrysdonna@gmail.com
