Disabled car parking

Darryn and Nicola from Torbay - Long Bay

Do you realize when you obstruct a disabled carpark you stop a disabled person from doing what you can do easily?

My husband is disabled and has a disabled car park card to enable him to engage in our weekend activities and get out of the car with us when we go out. This afternoon we went to New World Long bay & there was someone unloading their weeks worth of shopping into there car using the car park (which we pay for by the way) as a loading bay to underload his shopping he saw us but not move out of the way for us to access the park or move his trolly which was obstructing the park. We had to back into oncoming traffic and then use another park luckily myself and my daughter were in the car but my husband could not join us he also uses theses small trips into retailers as part of his rehab. We ask that if you are able-bodied do not use the parks & do not obstruct them with trollers their person who did this we have your registration and have reported this to the Police and also management at New World Long Bay & they will in touch with you

Wood stain and Varnish.

Pauline from Windsor Park

Hi,

My beautiful dining table has the wax and pine oil builtup, and I have tried with my limited knowledge to remove it but in vain.

I may have to sand it and then stain, varnish it.

Does anyone of you have a spare to share. I can return the remaining that I haven't used.

Suggestions are welcome!

Cheers

Police end physical search for missing French teen Eloi Rolland

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours.
Police say they have exhausted all leads for finding Eloi Rolland, 18, who has been missing from Auckland for almost four months.
The teen, who has limited English, has not been seen since he was captured on CCTV at the Britomart train station on March 7, where he caught a train to New Lynn's Fruitvale Rd station. It's understood he was in the vicinity of Piha Rd and Scenic Drive at 9.18am, but this is where the trail ends.
After more than 1600 hours searching for Rolland, police ended the physical search in May, pending reports of new information or evidence.
Rolland's sister, Aurore Rolland, told Stuff the family were "really sad" the search had been suspended.
"We [are at] the point where we are waiting for a miracle. We believe [he] is not dead in the sea at Piha Beach. Things need to be done, even if we have to search during our entire life."
