Photo: JIMMY NESS By JIMMY NESS Two loud car crashes involving the same car shocked Upper Hutt residents in the city centre on Tuesday afternoon last week. The driver of a Mazda Familia reversed into a parked car on Rus- sell St in the CBD. Minutes after exchanging details with the owner, he re- entered his vehicle and accelerated heavily into the side of Sweet Treats dairy before hitting a bollard on the footpath. Birchville resident Sandra Dixon, who was the owner of the parked car, says she saw the man drive into her bumper without stopping. I saw him reverse out and I noticed that he kept turning and turning. His hands were shaking so badly afterwards that I had to write down his details.'' Sweet Treats owner Sharda Nana says she heard a huge bang at the back of her shop when the car hit the wall and thought her brother, Sukhveer Adhikari, might have fallen over inside. Sergeant Rodger Hough says the driver, who had his leg in a cast, has received a warning. He had a broken foot. He was using a vehicle he had borrowed with hand controls.'' We are doing a pre-charge warning for careless use [of a motor vehicle]. He's been forbidden to drive until he has medical clearance.'' The left side of the driver's vehicle was torn off and the front light smashed. He declined to speak to The Upper Hutt Leader. Decade of help Upper Hutt's Family Works Centre celebrated 10 years at its Exchange St site last Tuesday with a morning tea for past and present staff, volunteers and supporters. Family Works supports hundreds of children, families and individuals each year and has become an important part of the community, says admin- istrator Taiana Anderson, who has worked at the centre for nearly nine years. You don't think about it until you realise how much of an impact we have on people's lives,'' she says. People are always stopping me in the street; old clients who want to say hello and find out what we're up to at the centre these days.'' Centre manager Paul Jones says Family Works Upper Hutt is looking forward to the next 10 years. We're hoping to get more involved in youth- specific projects in future,'' he says. We've just started our youth mentoring pro- gramme in partnership with the Cannons Creek Opportunity Centre, we're training qualified youth workers -- we want our programmes to be relevant to our community.'' Since 2001, Family Works Upper Hutt has run numerous popular life-skills programmes for Maori women, mums and babies, fathers with viol- ence or anger issues, teens, migrants and those with chronic illnesses.
