Once upon a lockdown…

Cambridge Senior Constable Casey Walker pays Mila Lockett a special visit on her fourth birthday.

Mila Lockett couldn’t quite understand why her friends couldn’t join her to celebrate her fourth birthday.

Mila loves fairies and was going to have a fairy themed birthday party.

Just as it looked like the Lockdown would spell an end to the fairy party, up stepped Casey Walker.

The Cambridge Senior Constable pulled up in Mila’s driveway dressed in a fairy outfit, complete with fairy wings, to pay her a visit.

“She was quite excited, but also just a little bit shy,” Mila’s mum.

Senior constable Walker also came bearing gifts for Mila – a notebook and some colouring pens.

When news of the visit to Mila’s house was shared on the Waikato Police Facebook page, it received nearly 2000 likes and about 150 comments.

“How amazing that amongst all the chaos, the police still find time to put a gigantic smile on a little girl’s face,” Lisa told the police on their Facebook page.

Mila – who attends early childhood education centre Little Einsteins – also got have some specially made fairy cake and her friends from play centre all sent her video messages to watch.
