Poll: Is the message to not leave dogs in hot cars getting through?

Denise Piper Reporter from Central Leader

The SPCA says a new $300 fine is helping to spread the warning that people should not leave their dogs in hot cars.
What do you think - is the message getting through to dog owners?

What creative ways are you saving water?

Kendall Hutt Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours. Our water use is "skyrocketing" according to Watercare, breaking previous water records three times last week. The water company says if we continue to use more and more water on hot days, restrictions may be introduced. What creative ways are you trying to save water? Do you have a timer in your shower? Have you replaced your herbs with cacti so you don't have to water them? Let us know, we'd love to hear your stories.
