Cherrywood Westpac is one of 19 branches closing down. What do you think about this?

It doesn’t worry me as I don’t bank with Westpac.
It’s an absolute shame, I used that bank all the time.
I guess I will just have to change banks.
I will probably just move to online banking.

Funeral for Mount boatie

Posted at 3:32pm Sunday 03 Feb, 2013

A funeral for the 58-year-old Mount Maunganui man who was killed in a boating accident in Thailand will be held today.

A funeral for Richard Spraggs will be held today.

Richard Spraggs died after hitting his head on a boat he was trying to push away from his. 

He was re-anchoring his boat after an overnight storm when the accident happened on Friday January 25.

Phuket News reported Richard's body was found after a 30 minute search.

Ambulance staff at the scene attempted to resuscitate him but all attempts failed. 

Richard's family and the New Zealand Embassy in Bangkok were notified of the incident on January 25.

A service will be held at Mount Maunganui Surf Club underneath Mauao at 1pm today. In memory of Richard, a casual dress beach theme and jandals have been recommended by the family as a must.
