Southbank Community Hub reconnects local with her scooter

Southbank Community Hub reconnects local with her scooter Image

By Sean Car

An online community established by Southbank News dedicated to Southbankers wishing to connect via Facebook, has helped one local reclaim her stolen scooter last month.

On September 25, local resident Andrew Taza posted in the Southbank Community Hub Facebook group sharing that his housemate’s red Vespa scooter had been stolen from outside their Wells St apartment complex.

The Facebook group was established in response to the pandemic in April and in the space of just six months has seen more than 630 locals sign up to connect, share and exchange ideas among their community.

And following Mr Taza’s post on September 25, many locals were quick to respond with messages of support. However, against the odds, local Sara Riva spotted the scooter not far away in Coventry St and posted an image of it on the post’s feed.

Remarkably, Mr Taza’s housemate was reunited with her scooter soon after as a result and he shared their gratitude with Ms Riva and the group.

“She found it. She’s so happy,” he wrote.

“Sara thank you so much sweetheart. We really appreciate it. The helmet was missing but at least we got the bike. What a great community.”

Mr Riva also shared an image of the alleged thieves and has asked for anyone with information to contact police.
