More than 40 children enjoyed a
voyage of discovery and wonder
deep under the ocean last week
– from the decks of the Te Anau
Library ship. Steering the ship,
Captain Library (aka Librarian Jo
Mann) and First Mate Angela Bell,
entertained the children with a
huge array of ocean-themed story
books and action songs followed
by creative activities with paint,
paper and glue. Their creations
included model crabs with their
own unique rock pools, jelly fish
of all colours, paper plate fish,
jumping dolphins and an exciting
collection of under the ocean
stone creatures. Te Anau Library
offers a variety of programmes
each year, generously supported
by the Friends of Te Anau Library.

Police are warning local residents
to be on their guard against a
group of suspicious men visiting
addresses and offering their
services to trim trees.
Senior Sergeant Cynthia Fairley
said an elderly lady in Winton
answered the door on April 28 to
a man who offered for his crew
to trim her trees. They carried out
the work the next day but she was
charged an excessive amount and
they did not clean up the yard.
There have been further reports
from Oamaru and Queenstown
about the group making
unsolicited calls at people’s
homes and charging excessive
prices and it’s thought they
may have originated from the
North Island. Described as being
of Samoan or of Rarotongan
descent, they have been through
Omakau, Lawrence, Alexandra
and are making their way
south. The supervisor was aged
approximately 40 years old.
Police have not yet identified the
vehicles they are travelling in but
there could be up to four men
travelling in two vehicles.
They could be persistent and may
target the elderly.
“If these people arrive
at your home, be
firm and tell them to
leave. Try and obtain
the company name,
a registration plate
number or description
of the vehicle, and
your local police,” Ms
