Love the new paper
I wanted to write to say that I
really am enjoying the new format
of the East & Bays Courier.
I like the stories about local
residents and interesting clubs
The article about the Unicycle
Club springs to mind, along with a
recent edition talking about bugs,
commuting and volunteers.
I now really look forward to
receiving the paper and make
sure that I read it all cover to
Good job and thanks, it really
makes you understand who lives
in our community and what
wonderful things the people are
Congratulations. Alice Rae-Flick
Thanks for help
Re Phil Squire s accident (East &
Bays Courier, December 16).
I would like to thank those who
tried so hard to help my late
husband, Philip James Squire,
when he had his fatal accident on
It was in the carpark behind the
Village dairy at 543 Remuera Rd
Unfortunately, his injuries were
always going to be fatal as his
back was broken in several places
and his aorta lacerated, causing a
fatal bleed into the abdomen.
So it would not have made any
difference when the car was
pulled off -- but thank you for
caring and trying.
We do appreciate all your
There was a tall, blond,
European woman about 35 years
old driving a black Audi station
wagon who was on the scene first
and we don t think she has come
forward to give evidence.
If you are that woman or know
who she is, could you please
contact the police serious crash
unit at 359-3111.
This is what we think
The gravel in the sloping
carpark acted like ball bearings
under the wheels of the car and
the trailer and they rolled back
despite the handbrake being on.
The owners of the building have
been asked for at least four or five
years to improve that carpark and
to do maintenance on the shops.
I intend to write the owners a
strong letter, as do the dairy
If anyone has proof of writing to
them over the years and getting
no action, I would be interested to
hear from them. Mrs Ana R Squire
Email email@example.com if you would
like to get in touch with Ana and we
will pass your message on -- Ed.
Keep the Dippy Disc
My children have had many fun
times on the Dippy Disc (East &
Bays Courier, December 16) and I
hope they have many more.
It is interactive, teaches
balance and physics all in one,
and is well surrounded by fall
I am willing to accept that they
may fall off and incur a bruise or
a break -- as they may do on their
bike, on a slip-slide, playing touch
rugby, and so on.
Life causes bruises.
Let s just accept that and leave
the disc in place, please. Jody King
I agree with the retailers, I think
the spirit of co-operation between
the organiser and the retailers
has gone since the streetfest has
been corralled off (December 28).
They are being penalised on the
night and have to sit back and
When I first attended the event
it was great to sit on the grass and
be able to walk over to the shops
to get some food or wine to drink
From what I understand, it was
due to drunken youths spoiling it
for everyone that changed it.
Once again a small minority of
the community dictate how an
event will proceed for everyone
else, and diminish the idea and
atmosphere it was trying to
Having said that, it should have
been known that Mission Bay was
a gathering place for youth for
