Te Kura o Te Teko principal Tony Holland said they want a healthy community in Te Teko.
This is from Tony Holland following the confirmation Arman Singh is no longer applying for a liquor license. Whakatane District liquor license inspector Roger McQuirkan said Arman Singh had withdrawn his liquor license application.
Most of the Te Teko community are very happy there won’t be a liquor store in Te Teko. Arman Singh earlier said his application came about through many people of Te Teko wanting more alcohol choices but that has been refuted by Kaumatua,
Teachers, Health Providers and Parents saying Te Teko will remain without a liqour outlet since alcohol brings bad behaviour from besotted people.
