Coronation Street Geoff Metcalfe actor releases beautiful song💖

Fiona from Henderson

This is absolutely PERFECT❣️❣️
I wish we had this song here in New Zealand.

Coronation Street actor Ian Bartholomew, who plays perpetrator of domestic abuse Geoff Metcalfe, today has released the song, This Time It’s Forever, and accompanying music video to raise vital funds for domestic abuse charity Women’s Aid in the UK.

As the Youtube link seems to be blocked on here (a regular occurance now), I will leave the link to the article to where I found this wonderful musical gem which has a direct access to this wonderful song.

Can you help identify the symbols on this neckerchief?

Kia ora neighbours, a tattered neckerchief discovered inside a 153-year-old shipwreck on Muriwai beach has been restored by heritage specialists. It was found the neckerchief was made of pure silk and featured detailed images which appeared to relate to the Freemasons organisation. The Daring rescue group are now calling for anyone who may know the background of the images and what they mean. Images can be found within the story.

We Say, You Say: Beach Safety

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Auckland,

Do you know how to spot a rip?

A study conducted by Surf Lifesaving New Zealand at Muriwai Beach found that 78 per cent of beach goers could not identify a rip current.

One geomorphologist involved in the study spotted a "well-established" rip offshore and asked individuals at the beach to point it out.

The vast majority could not do so.

According to SLSNZ, around 80 per cent of rescues made were from people getting stuck in rips. They say that the easiest way to identify them is to spot calm strips of water that are flanked by breaking waves.

“They commonly occur in deeper channels that are cut between sandbars, which means waves don’t break as much in the rip current – this means that beachgoers often mistake them as the safest areas to swim because the water looks so calm when compared to the breaking waves either side.”
