Sad to believe our safe community is being targeted by “people” who are inconsiderate and have no respect for others property! Our daughters car was rummaged through on Saturday night whilst parked in our driveway in Bramley Drive. Other than a few coins taken there was no damage to the car but for my daughter it has been a traumatic event. We will now let the dog out when we hear any noise outside and guarantee he can run faster. Second time in Bramley so can’t help but think someone “local” – lock your cars as we no longer live in safe community, 🙁
Our next Well-being for Women event in Tauranga, is being held on:
Saturday 13th April from 12.30pm to 3.00pm.
The venue, as usual, is The Atrium, Waipuna Hospice, 43 Te Puna Station Rd, Tauranga.
In this group we will continue to expand on the topic of perfection and ask:
“Is it possible when we try to live the ‘perfect’ life, whether that be the perfect daughter, the perfect mother, the perfect partner, the perfect worker, that we are complicating what could be very simple? So, how does this complication play out in our everyday lives, in our relationships and in our bodies and how can we go about simplifying it?”
Your presenters Jeanette Macdonald and Anne Hishon invite you to join them to further explore this fascinating topic; one that affects us all.
To book or for more information contact Jeanette on 021 299 3821 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Omokoroa Residents,
I spotted this on Whakamarama Facebook community page yesterday.
May be of interest to residents travelling from Tauranga to Omokoroa over the next few weeks.

“The most rapid period of brain
development is in the first few years, but
because it is so rapid, and because it builds
the foundation, that’s why it is so important.
Everything that follows has to build on that
foundation, made in the first few years.”

There has been a concentrated effort by many in the Omokoroa community to oppose the establishment of a tavern by KLM Ltd at 168 Omokoroa Road, adjacent to the Super Liquor store. KLM initially sought a liquor licence that would allow them to operate a sports bar that was open from early morning until 1.00am, seven days a week.
Members of the Omokoroa community got together to oppose the granting of an on-license for the tavern. The basis of the argument was that putting a tavern in the middle of an established residential area including a very high proportion of retired residents is not appropriate. This argument was made very strongly by the 19 residents who spoke at a hearing of the District Licencing Commission held late January.
By now most of you will know that our campaign to oppose the liquor licence has in large part succeeded. KLM have been granted a licence, but with very strict conditions. They can trade as a restaurant with restricted hours, but not as a tavern.
A lot of the credit for our success must go to Grant Hewison, a barrister who assisted us with tactics and appeared for us pro bono at the hearing. Grant spent a lot of time helping us. Geoff Annan and I have opened a Givealittle page and ask the community to consider making a contribution that shows Grant we appreciate the effort he made on our behalf.

I have had an official looking email this morning supposedly from Samsung asking about the TV viewing habits in Omokoroa and asking me to take a short survey. It was addressed to me personally. Needless to say, it has been deleted, especially as I don’t have a Samsung TV or phone and there are a couple of typos in the text. PLEASE BE WARNED
