Are you now working from home?

Angela Purcell from AB Electrical

As many of our work force are moving to ‘working from home’, we are seeing people experiencing frustration with their ‘new’ work environment.
Common issues that people are finding frustrating and impacting their productivity include:

- Slow internet
- Poor WI-FI service, weak signal
- Power points not where you want them to be
- Poor lighting

We appreciate this is a new environment and that they do not design most homes for a ‘work from home’ situation. It is not surprising that this could frustrate you, as you test out your home for working for the very first time, and that you can see some areas that you could improve to make this experience easy and your work efficient.

AB Electrical want to help our community and are offering free estimates and 20% discounts.

AB Electrical would like to extend an offer to North Shore based customers who are looking to improve their ‘work from home’ environment:

1 Free on-site review and quote.
2 Consultation at our showroom with a full range of working down lights, power points & switches.
3 20% discount on materials and labour for jobs booked before 30 April 2020.

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."

Wood stain and Varnish.

Pauline from Windsor Park


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!
