Chch earthquake victims robbed Refugees from the Christchurch earthquakes had a very unfortu- nate break on Waiheke with their holiday home entered and possessions stolen. It happened on Monday, April 23, during the day. The house on Queen's Dr was entered and jewellery and alcohol stolen. Police have recovered a gold bracelet from a 51-year-old woman. Inquiries are still being carried out with police still look- ing for a white gold ring with an amethyst stone surrounded by small diamonds and a bottle of Skyy Blue vodka. It was a quiet week for police with just one arrest, of a 25-year-old Little Oneroa woman on April 27 for the pos- session of cannabis after a search warrant was executed at her address. She received a for- mal warning. Police also stopped two drink- drivers. On April 28 a 30-year- old woman who was stopped and breathalysed on Onetangi Rd was found to have a breath alcohol level of 555mcg. The following day a 54-year- old man who was stopped and breathalysed on Onetangi Rd blew a breath alcohol level of 546mcg. The legal limit is 400mcg. Both drivers will be appearing in court. Bus shelters protected Much needed: A larger than usual shelter was purpose-built for the bus stop opposite the Red Cross building in Oneroa. Protective solution: Local board member Don McKenzie and Michael O'Callaghan of GSL Glassguard discuss the new film on the bus shelter in Belgium St. By GILL ALCOCK Glass protection film has been added to several bus shelters in a bid to combat graffiti and dam- age. A team from GSL Glassguard was on the island last week instal- ling the film to five shelters identified by the Waiheke Local Board as in need of protection. Two of the shelters received the protective glass film decorated with a pohutukawa print. These are on Belgium St in Ostend and outside the ANZ Bank in Oneroa. The other three have clear film Glas- sguard etching protec- tion installed. The film not only protects glass from future acts of vandalism but also helps cover-up existing scratches. It is virtually invisible once installed allowing people inside the shelter to see out. The local board has been focusing on making bus transport easier, more accessible and more comfortable. Sev- eral new shelters have appeared along bus routes and access to sev- eral bus stops has improved through the clearing of vegetation, cut-ins and paved or concreted areas. Board member Don McKenzie kicked off the initiative with a survey of the bus stops and shelters most in need of an update. Mr McKenzie says the response from the public raised several issues which the board has been addressing. We are looking at accessible bus shelters and seats plus the size of print on the bus timetables.'' Deputy chairwoman Jo Holmes, who is the transport delegate, says: We were told by Auck- land Transport there was not enough budget to do more than one or two bus shelters a year. In our first year we did five or six. They have been great.'' Mr McKenzie says while he's pleased with Auckland Transport's response to the board's requests there are still more shelters needed. I'm going to be putting my hand up for a few more in the next round of funding.''
