Poll: Are swear words no longer?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

In 2023, Apple amended its autocorrect function to allow Iphone users to freely use their intended word without mentioning 'ducks'. Is this a sign of the times? Are swear words no longer taboo in our communities or workplaces?

Retaining wall project

Nick Jenness from Nick The Builder

Howdy Neighbours

Here is our latest project.
The initial brief was to repair the built-in garden seats but it turned out that they had done their dash. Partly because the existing retaining wall behind giving way due to poor design and rot.
We installed larger diameter poles at closer centres which have been drilled and concreted into the ground as much as they are out of the ground. Super strong and good for another 50 years. 👍😎
