Time for a short laugh

Some creative DIY has brought a laugh to the Te Awamutu community.

Ethan Udy decided to so some of his own repair work when he found the Short St sign broken into three pieces.

He said drain layers had been working at the site for a couple of weeks installing new water lines. The street sign had been taken down and broken into three pieces. So he put the top end of the sign back.

“The reaction from the community was awesome I had no idea that so many people would share a laugh together over it,” he said.

The short Short Street sign didn’t last long – it was replaced within 24 hours.
