With winter fast approaching it's time to look at your fireplaces and chimneys
•Clean chimneys and flues before you light the first fire of the season.
•Always use a fireguard or spark-guard when using an open fire.
•Never throw rubbish into the fireplace – particularly batteries and aerosol cans.
•Always empty ashes and ashtrays into a metal bin and pour water over them before disposal. Remember that ashes can take up to 5 days to cool.
•Keep matches, lighters and anything else that can create fire out of reach of children.
Remember: Smoke alarms save lives

Kia ora Is there a handyman or woman who could hang some large paintings for us please?
Kia ora Auckland, it's time to dust off that old camera, get out and about and show the rest of your neighbours your favourite, treasured spots in your region. It could be an awesome view, the shy wildlife or even the old buildings that are wanting their stories to be told.
Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.
