School gates created by sex offender removed
"Ornate Paekakariki School gates sculptured by local artist and convicted child sex offender Brendan Nolan have been removed with the school board saying it was no longer appropriate they 'welcomed' school children and their families to the school.
Parents, board members and volunteers took about an hour to remove the elaborate main front gates and two side gates this afternoon, made by metal artist Mr Nolan in 2006."
