Monday 28 November the old Nurses Home at the old Waipukurau Hospital burnt down. The building has been completely destroyed. One of the few buildings that were to be saved.  Demolition continues...

Thumbs up to our awesome fire brigades and our awesome fire men and ladies that worked for hours to keep neighbouring houses safe.  Here are some photographs today 29 November of the hospital site the first ones are of the old nurses home.

•    Continue doing the jobs that never got done in October, or are ongoing.
•    It’s not too late to plant tomato, cucumber, pepper and kumara plants.
•    To keep the Psyllids off potato and tomato plants, there have been great results from covering them with Insect Mesh.
•    Over the summer months, remove excessive leaf growth off grapes, cutting back to a bunch of grapes.
•    Cover berry fruits with bird netting. Keep well watered and apply fertiliser high in potash.
•    As roses flower and dead heads appear, remove them and this keeps bushes flowering through Christmas. Apply more rose fertiliser and water deeply once a week if no rain.
•    Sow bean and sweet corn seed. Continue planting lettuce plants, at intervals to have a steady supply over summer.

CUMULATIVE RESULTS

Congratulations to the Deakin Brothers for their tenacity in getting started on the demolition of the old Waipukurau hospital buildings.

As a community we wish them well with their endeavours on this project knowing that almost anything they do to this site will be an improvement on what we have currently.  Big thumbs up.  These photos were taken 24 February the top ones just a week later on 2 March.  Excellent progress...

Policing throughout the western world is changing from the heavy punitive action of "Fire Brigade" policing (i.e. responding to crime after it has been committed), to the more preventative approach, where we use historically gathered intelligence to identify social and community issues which may be contributing to the problem. Then, using the assistance of partner organisations such as Safer CHB, Ministry of Social Development, Housing NZ, endeavour to put programs in place to assist these communities to rise above the issues which are dogging them.

Don't get me wrong, we still have zero tolerance toward anti-social behavior, and our courts are still busy every day, but we envisage that, over time, we can get these numbers down thereby making our communities safer places to live.
