MAIL THIEF APPREHENDED!
A Matrix Security patrolman on Green Reflector patrols noticed a male
acting suspiciously, moving in and out of driveways on a busy Remuera
The male matched the description of a person who was seen acting in a
similar manner in the area two weeks earlier, but had managed to disappear
before being challenged. The Matrix Security patrolman observed the
offender from a distance after notifying the police.
On their arrival the man was questioned and in possession of a large
quantity of residents' personal mail from a number of different properties.
The man is co-operating with police enquiries and the mail has also been
returned to its rightful owners.

St Heliers Bay may not
have huge surf and
deadly rips but it's still a
good place for kids to
learn water safety skills.
Surf Lifesaving New
Zealand runs the City
Nippers programme at
St Heliers each summer
to remind children and
their parents that not all
beaches are so calm.
Bethells Beach life-
guard Maddy Disberry is
one of the club members
running the programme.
It gives the kids
around the city the
chance to come down
here and learn the stuff
we teach at the surf
clubs,'' she says.
It's just so they get
their confidence up in
Children between 5
and 13 years can enroll
in the week-long pro-
gramme where they
learn about rips, waves,
sun safety, surf safety
and the role of a life-
They also get the
chance to learn to boogie
board, body surf, use the
rescue tubes and play
The high number of
drownings at New Zea-
land beaches each sum-
mer highlights the need
for kids to learn water
safety early, Ms Disberry
They go home, spread
the word and practice
what we preach,'' she
Matthew Calvert, 10,
says he learnt to duck
dive, use the rescue
tubes and how to tell
which waves are safe.
It makes you a lot
more confident,'' the St
Heliers resident says.
With this they just work
on the things you
already know but you
haven't mastered yet.''
St Johns resident
Jacinta Kelly, 7, says she
learnt what to do in a
You lie down as a
starfish and put your
hand up,'' she says.
They just want to help
you learn to be safe at
the beach and for you to
have a good time.''
Jacinta says she had
plenty of fun swimming
with her friend and get-
ting stuck into the activi-
ties and Matthew says it
is a great excuse to
spend time at the beach.
City Nippers runs at
St Heliers and Takapuna
beaches each summer
courses are available at
both beaches from 9am-
11am from February 5 to
March 4. There is also
a Tuesday afternoon
course at St Heliers and
a Wednesday afternoon
course at Takapuna from
February 7 to March 13.
