Locals are calling for action after reports of worrying, suspicious behaviour in central Tamahere and trash littering the skate park.
Tamahere School principal Waveney Parker today alerted the community to people “acting suspiciously in the bushes located at the corner of Devine and Newell Road.
The Monastery, one of Tamahere’s most storied properties, is on the market again.
Current owners of the 4.5ha, riverside property, Shane and Paula Walsh, were about to put their historic home on the market when New Zealand entered Covid-19 pandemic lockdown in late March.
On this day, May 27, 1865, Wiremu Tāmihana Tarapīpipi Te Waharoa laid down his taiaha before British Brigadier General G. J. Carey at Tamahere.
It was Tamihana’s ‘te maungarongo’ (covenant of peace) and like so much of the legendary Ngati Haua leader’s peaceful efforts it was misinterpreted.
