TV show garden renovation undone

Some people are just not worth the air they breathe.

A Nelson woman, Trish Moir, was rewarded for her community spirit with a garden makeover by TVNZ’s Mucking In after being nominated by local police for her volunteer work at the police station. However, the new plants and ornaments have been stolen just one day later.

Community constable John O’Donovan, who nominated Ms Moir, said they were incensed by the actions of the “ultra low-life” responsible and that they would be caught as the items stolen were easily recognisable.

    It would have been a much shorter show too!
