The Safer Sumner group has bought two cameras at cost price from security firm October Protection and the group has asked the city council, and electricity lines company Orion, if it can put them on a power pole opposite the club. If given the go-ahead the cameras will be installed as soon as possible, said group member and October Protection owner Matt Wood. Safer Sumner set up a Givealittle page to raise money for the cameras, following four aggravated burglaries in Sumner, Redcliffs, Ferrymead and Mt Pleasant late last year. In one of the burglaries, householder Emely van Ras, held off an armed intruder with a decorative Fijian skull crusher. The group raised more than $3110 and Sumner business Johnston Architects donated the remainder of the $4000 cost. It comes as Akaroa police beat the drums for cameras to be installed because of crime. •Turn to page 5 Properties WANTED * Terms & conditions apply Ferrymead 987 Ferry Road | Phone 373 6550 48 Revelation Drive – AUCTION 50 Scarborough Road – JUST SOLD Alistair Hazeldine Mobile: 027 572 1555 | Phone: 03 384 7950 Email: Joy Butel AREINZ - Dip.R.E.
