Free - clothes hanger for Garage Sale plus festive banners

Carole from East Tamaki

Hi: I have cleared out my garage and would like to give to someone who has garage sales, a temporary, make-shift clothes hanger. My father fashioned two wooden posts and a metal rod that slips between them. It can lie flat in your garage so takes up very little room.
I also have two festive banners: one purple and one bright yellow on bamboo rods. They curve at the end and come down to dream catchers (one has lost its threads but is still OK). These are great to attract attention to your event. They just need propping up on something.
There may also be other things like boards that hook jewellery onto them, depending on what you want to take. First-come, first-served basis. Tel. 021 907 986 Carole

NZTA warns it could close the Auckland Harbour Bridge during storm

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours. Transport authorities have pulled double-decker buses from the Auckland Harbour Bridge and are warning it could close completely during a massive storm forecast for much of the country. this weekend.

MetService previously said travel disruptions are likely this weekend, as severe gales, heavy rain and big waves batter the country, followed by cold Antarctic air bringing snow to low levels in the deep south.

Meteorologists believe the storm could be “one of the most widespread severe weather events this year”.

Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) general manager of transport services Brett Gliddon advised motorcyclists and those driving high-sided vehicles to avoid the bridge.
