E-waste collection flyer

The ERA is very pleased to announce that, in partnership with Computer Recycling and with gratefully received support from the Ōrākei Local Board,  it will be holding an e-waste collection day on Saturday 17th April at the Ellerslie Racecourse carpark.

Better still, funding from the Board means that items which would usually attract a fee to recycle will be free for Ellerslie residents!

Please see the flyer below for more information, or check out the Computer Recycling website.

Catch this thief!

A young burglar is on a early-morning smash and grab rampage through Ellerslie, causing thousands of dollars of damage and so far the police have not been able to get to the scenes of his raids quick enough to catch him.

Do you recognize him in this photo? If you know who he is the Mount Wellington police would like to hear from you.

He has broken into the Ellerslie YMCA nine time in the last month! That’s annoying and expensive.

Chris Laing, recreation manager at the YMCA says, “He is apparently an Ellerslie local based around the Michael’s Avenue Reserve area. Please phone us on 579 4716 if you think you may know who he is. He moves around the community on a bicycle so keep your eyes out.”

Our solution for the rising crime rate in Ellerslie

Since our community constable, Sarah Johnston, was withdrawn from manning her office in the Ellerslie War Memorial Hall crime has slowly risen in Ellerslie.

The New Zealand Police allocated an officer for Ellerslie based in Onehunga. Gradually, over time, the police have lost touch with the inhabitants of our area who give rise to crime in our suburb. Your ERA committee have been in correspondence with MP Sam Lotu-Iiga and police minister, Judith Collins, requesting the reinstatement of a community constable to man our office from 3pm to 5pm, Monday to Friday, each week.
