Say goodbye to tyre waste

About 40% of the 6.5 million tyres Kiwis use every year are recycled, repurposed, or used as tyre-derived fuel. But the rest end up in landfills, stockpiled or dumped.

The good news is now there’s an easy solution to all that tyre waste. It’s called Tyrewise and is New Zealand’s first national tyre recycling scheme.

Tyrewise ensures that tyres in Aotearoa New Zealand are recycled or repurposed properly, saving millions from going to the landfill.

TRANSFORM YOUR MASTER BEDROOM INTO A LUXURIOUS OASIS WITH THESE 7 DECOR ITEMS

Jay from Beds 4 U Glenfield

Hi Neighbours,

Hi Neighbours,

Your master bedroom is your sanctuary – the ultimate escape from a long day’s work and stress.

But, have you ever felt like something was missing in your master bedroom décor?

That extra touch of luxury that elevates it from just another room to a space fit for royalty?

We’ve compiled a list of seven luxurious items that will transform your master bedroom into the oasis of your dreams.

To achieve a luxurious look in your master bedroom, several must-have items can elevate the overall decor.

Here are seven suggestions for your master bedroom decor and layout:


Statement Bedframe. Invest in a luxurious and visually striking bedframe as the centrepiece of your bedroom. Choose a design that complements your master bedroom decor and overall aesthetic, such as an upholstered headboard or a wooden frame, for a sleek and modern platform bed.

High-Quality Bedding. Opt for high-quality bedding materials like Tencel to add a touch of luxury and comfort. Choose soft and plush duvet covers, pillowcases, and sheets in neutral or rich colours to create a sophisticated look.

Plush Pillows and Throws. Add layers of comfort and style with plush pillows and cozy throws. Opt for bamboo gel, natural silk, or cotton pillows to create visual interest and enhance the luxurious ambience.

Mirrors. Introduce large, decorative mirrors or a dresser and mirror combo to reflect light and create the illusion of a more spacious room. Choose dresser and mirror combos with beautiful frames that match your overall master bedroom decor style.

Stylish Seating Area. If you have enough space, create a cozy seating area for your master bedroom decor and layout. Include a comfortable armchair or lift-powered recliner to suit your contemporary or traditional style. Use luxurious fabrics and textures for the upholstery, and consider adding a decorative accent pillow or a faux fur throw for added comfort.

Bedside Furniture. They help to give the room a more polished and finished look. When choosing end tables or nightstands for your master bedroom decor, look for ones made from high-quality materials such as solid NZ Pine.

Tallboy. This piece of furniture not only adds practical storage solutions but also provides an elegant and sophisticated look that enhances the overall aesthetic appeal of your room. Choose one made from solid NZ pine, engineered wood, or pine veneer.

Your master bedroom is your oasis away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
So how can you transform it into a place where you can relax and unwind in luxury?

With beds and mattresses from Beds4U!
In addition, we have luxurious bedding items that feature materials of the highest quality.

Contact us to create your dream master bedroom today.

Programme for Kauri Glen Track Opening
The Local Board plan to have the official opening on 28th April. However, vandals have torn down the barriers and already done some damage to artwork on the bridge. It made good sense to allow access through the track now. The access is an important link between two residential catchments and will once more, provide a more direct access for high school students when school resumes.
The new track is something that residents can take pride in, being of a standard worthy of showing your guests, and for organised walking or tour groups that will be more able to appreciate this significant natural, scenic resource.

See an open invitation to the opening below.

➡️ Facebook event: www.facebook.com...
Free BBQ! Walk the new track!

This is a new step-free route between Kauri Glen Road and Tui Glen Road, with a refurbished track (including steps) to Raymond Terrace. The new bridge is around 6 storeys high with a very impressive view of the forest tree tops.
The new tracks, bridge and boardwalk have been built to a standard to help prevent the spread of kauri dieback disease, which is especially important in this park.
*** Please always clean your shoes, bikes, prams and wheelchairs at the stations. ***

Note: We made the decision to allow public access earlier than expected to prevent further damage to the forest by those who were throwing the fences into the trees 🙁

- Funded by the Kaipātiki Local Board and Natural Environment Targeted Rate.
