Indian Wardens get a car for community safety patrolling

5 December 2021 -

NZ Council of Sikh Affairs has actively been providing services through its Community Safety Action Group. As part of this initiative, Rana Judge formed Indian Wardens five years ago. The purpose of the wardens is to inculcate sense of security among Papatoetoe businesses. Indian Wardens are very popular in the area and attract a lot of volunteers. Currently, 15 volunteer wardens work closely with local businesses in Papatoetoe.

It is a pleasure to announce that Jagjit Singh Sidhu (Immigration Matters) and Khushi Watson (NZ Cars) joined hands and provided the Indian Wardens with a car for community patrolling. Khushi Watson is also going to provide ongoing insurance and maintenance support for this car. NZ Council of Sikh Affairs is thankful to both for their kind support.
