Watercare ups charges yet delivers appalling service

Barbara from Northcote

Has anyone had similar experiences with Watercare of late?
On 3 May this year, Watercare reported a leak at our property. I employed plumbers to find and repair the leak. The cost was nearly $1000. As it turned out, the leak was Watercare's problem. After 11 weeks and umpteen emails to them, they have failed to reimburse me for my costs.
Phil Goff, in a recent public statement, spoke of Watercare's ''accountability'' and ''responsiveness.'' Watercare's Chief Customer Officer, Amanda Singleton, describes herself as ''a passionate customer advocate'' and being responsible for ''all customer touch points'' (whatever they are) ''in the business.'' After this month's increases to water charges - with yet more to come - it feels as if they're taking us for fools.

Restaurant Month: Cheap menus courtesy of Auckland's top dining establishments

Mina Kerr-Lazenby Reporter from Community News

Hey neighbours,

Restaurant Month is back for another year, set to bolster the Auckland culinary scene by offering discounted dishes and unique events for the entire month of August.

Gastronomes can expect 31 days of specially curated menus at the value-for-money price points of $25, $40 or $55+.

Restaurants included span those from the waterfront to the CBD, and from stalwarts such as Euro, Botswana Butchery and Odettes​ Eatery, to the newcomers and the underdogs.

Viv Beck, Heart of the City chief executive, said this year’s lineup is “more world-class than ever” thanks to the “inspiring lineup of chefs”, some of whom have recently returned to Auckland from stints overseas.

Red Bull Flugtag comes to Auckland: Rules, prizes, how to enter and where to watch

Mina Kerr-Lazenby Reporter from Community News

Come November 27, teams of brave inventors will hurl themselves off an Auckland pier and into the waters below, all in the name of Flugtag.

It’s a welcome return to New Zealand for the Red Bull Flugtag competition, which last graced our shores in 2004 when it was hosted in Wellington.

The competition will see amateur aviators design, build and then fly contraptions in a bid to be crowned winner.

The thousands of people set to descend upon Wynyard Quarter to see the event are likely to keep business booming for local hospitality hotspots.
