Craft Market

Three days after being ripped open, Carterton Craft Market has re-opened, thanks to some crafty building work. A logging truck parked out front snagged the front of the building last week, leaving its verandah damaged. Carterton Craft Market manager Desley Rekke said two builders worked late into the evening to get everything structurally sound and signed off. Rekke said they now must wait for the insurance assessor to work on the veranda because it would have to be rebuilt and repaired.

The circumstances surrounding a vehicle that reportedly fled from officers on Monday, only to be found dumped at another location hours later, is being investigated.

Another stolen vehicle was reportedly found on Bluff Rangitumau Rd yesterday morning, while a third vehicle was reported abandoned on Craigmillar St, Solway. Police said none of these incidents are related.
