Look our for others

The Team from Counties Manukau Police

We know some of you are facing threatening and potentially harmful times at home right now. Police will be there for you if you call us.

If you are in immediate danger and can’t call 111, leave your house and get out of harm’s way. Get to a safe distance and then ask a neighbour over a fence, or a passer-by, to call 111 for you. Your safety comes first.

It’s everybody’s responsibility to speak out and keep each other safe right now. If you think something is not ok with a friend, neighbour, or colleague, it’s okay to call Police on their behalf. The person you’re worried about may not be able to speak up for themselves. You could be saving a life.

Using mobiles while driving

Nozer from Botany Downs

With the increase in the number of vehicles on the road, I can immediately see the increase in the number of drivers using their mobiles while driving. They think that is especially ok to use the phone while stopped at a signal. Well, IT IS NOT OK. I am seriously contemplating taking their pictures as well as their car details and passing them on to the police. Unfortunately, these offenders cannot be classified under any particular occupation, ethnicity, etc. PLEASE STOP USING YOUR MOBILES WHILE DRIVING, YOU MAY MAIM OR VEN KILL SOMEONE.

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

In New Zealand, business entertaining often occurs at drinks party events with elegant finger food hosted in the office reception or board room. The menu must be varied, with some vegetarian and gluten-free options and offer a mixture of fresh and crunchy palate-tempting snacks.

The Classic Club Sandwich remains one of these 'comfort dishes' that is ever popular but it needs to hold together so that the components don't slip alway and fall on your special jacket or silk dress.

As part of our Canapes and Drinks Party Cuisine module, we make a classic club with the test being - can you cut it in a triangle shape, on its side, and place on a platter, without the sandwich collapsing...
