The owner/mechanic of Taneatua Auto has been burgled three times. After the most recent robbery the mechanic has now been forced to close his business because they took everything that he had. Taneatua is a very small town and his customers were mainly local people. So, an individuals ability to have a livelihood has been affected, a family has been affected and a community will now have to travel to town to have their vehicles repaired. The community are upset at the way their local mechanic has been treated so I mooted the idea to set-up this page. I do not know the mechanic personally but I think every person in this life deserves a leg-up and I think it is a chance for the community to get behind each other in the ongoing fight against crime in their town. I have also written to the local Maori MP Te Ururoa Flavell and requested any assistance that he might be able to provide!
