Brand new MG for community patrol
Posted at 2:33pm Tuesday 04 Aug, 2020
The Hibiscus Coast Community Patrol took delivery of its brand new SUV last month, with the official handover ceremony at Tristram MG on July 9.
The group's 40 volunteer patrollers, based at the Orewa Police station, act as the ‘eyes and ears' of Police, regularly driving around the Hibiscus Coast, Puhoi, Waitoki and Coatesville, day and night, to report anything that may be of interest to Police.
Their 16-year-old old vehicle needed maintenance that the group could not afford and a replacement car was funded thanks to sponsors including Tristram MG and the Rotary Satellite club in Millwater (HM June 17). Representatives of Community Patrols NZ, the Hibiscus & Bays Local Board, Rotarians and a large number of patrollers attended the function.
