Police and Kerikeri residents tested their strength and stamina against each other in a four-way tug-of-war dur- ing the recent Mid North Community Pride Expo. The fun event was part of the expo that showcased some of the community services available in the Mid North area. Kerikeri High School students managed to beat Kaitaia College in the police competency test (fitness test) and another crowd pleaser included a display by the Northland Police Dog Section. During the day, Auck- land Police recruiting officer senior constable Len Johnson, aka DJ Lenny, kept the crowd entertained with his music and giveaways. Community services manager senior sergeant Justin Rogers said although the crowd was not large, everyone enjoyed themselves. It was great to see the younger members of our community competing with each other and playing games at the dif- ferent sites. There were also lots of Pride bags and t-shirts on display.'' Mr Rogers said that police are interested in other ideas to promote Northland Community Pride and would like to hear from any com- munity groups interested in working with police to organise it. Contact Northland police communications officer Sarah Kennett on (09) 430-4525 or 027-494-1214.
