Have you noticed extra Aucklanders in Whangārei?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangārei Leader

Aucklanders who fled the city before this week’s Covid-19 alert level 3 restrictions came into force are already putting pressure on health services in Northland. Northland should be "an island" due to the Auckland restrictions, but both pharmacies and community leaders have noticed an influx of Aucklanders. Have you noticed extra Aucklanders in your neighbourhood? And what do you think about them?

STOLEN

Alison Shrigley Reporter from Whangārei Leader

This painting was STOLEN from outside the back of Jesse Rose's store in Kamo last week while it was drying. It is especially SPECIAL because the artist is only learning and was really proud of her efforts.

UPDATE- it may look like we got the stolen painting back, But Sadly no- we haven’t. Despite huge efforts to try and do so.. and some truly AMAZING support of the public... (The post I wrote to say the painting had been stolen, has been shared over 440 x already online, so it’s definitely getting out there..)
It’s out of our hands now, but we are still hopeful it will be recovered., so keep sharing... as we Know people have seen this painting/will see this painting.
But in the meantime I printed off the only photo we had, which was an unfinished picture (the stolen painting had been finished) onto fine art paper, and then Melissa finished the final details ...(for the second time)

And that way we were able to include the painting in the exhibition on Saturday night!

Of course not the same as having the original painting- but it was something 🖤

This fantail will have quite a story behind it,

And I know one day (hopefully) it will make its way back to the owner..

If you know anything about this, please let Jesse Rose know on 021 155 6803, or return it to 575 Kamo Road, Kamo, Whangārei 0112.
