The new Hibiscus Coast Community Patrol vehicle was launched on Tuesday 8th May at the Orewa Police Station. The vehicle which has generously been sponsored by Pak ‘n Save, Meadow Fresh, New World and Centreway Motors is the fist time the group has operated its own vehicle. Grants and fundraising by the group have also helped. For the past six years, Transfield in Silverdale has supported the group and supplied two vehicles for this important community activity/ They have also maintained the vehicles with the assistance of Patroller Kelvin Stevens. The new vehicle is now stationed at the Orewa Police Station where the 18 volunteers are based. Patrollers at the launch were Margaret Stevens, Graham and Jenni Booth and Frank Rands. Police were represented by Inspector Scott Webb and representatives from the sponsors were also present.
