House of Hearing • By Julia Evans Accredited installers 10yr workmanship guarantee 6 yr warranty PARKING WARDENS appear to be fair game in western suburbs. Latest statistics show of the 36 verbal and physical assaults on parking wardens in the city, seven were in Merivale, Papanui and Riccarton. And four of the seven incidents, including one of two assaults, took place in Merivale alone. On April 28, a parking warden was assaulted by the owner of the vehicle they were issuing a ticket on Papanui Rd outside Merivale Mall just before noon. The fine, for parking over the time limit, was $21. The offender had to have a restorative justice meeting with the parking warden and apologised. Wardens were also threatened and verbally abused on Leinster Rd in May and Winchester St in August. But at the time they were walking along the road, not issuing tickets. •Turn to page 4 Fujitsu Heat PumP at a HOt HOt Price Six Year Warranty Conditions apply* 5.4kW Hi Wall $1,999 FULLY INSTALLED* MoDEL: ASTG14LUCB DON’T MISS OUT!
