Sending Love Christmas Cards

Lindsay Upton from Manukau East Council of Social Services (MECOSS)

Christmas embodies a real and inclusive generosity that no other time of the year can match. Yes, there is stress, but there is also kindness – to those alone and in need.
MECOSS is overwhelmed with the mammoth response to the call put out just over two weeks ago by the 'Sending Love charity', for contributions of Christmas cards crafted with hand written messages, for distribution to elderly people in our East Auckland community, who’re confined to an age-care facility this festive season.
If you’d like to help spread some Christmas cheer, you can write a message on a Christmas greeting card and post it in the drop-box located in the foyer of the All Saints’ Community Centre, 30 Cook Street, Howick, every day between 8:00am and 4:30pm until Friday, 15 December.
If you’d prefer to personalise a Christmas card, paper crafting company 'Close To My Heart in America', has donated beautiful cards in conjunction with Megan Lawrence from 'Crop Craft Create', who has donated two drop-in sessions to help you fashion something a little bit special and turn them into a collectable keepsake that’ll be cherished by the recipient.
WHERE: Howick Library, 25 Uxbridge Rd, Howick, Auckland
DAY & DATE: Wednesday, 13 December
TIME: 9:30am to 11:30am
and
WHERE: Botany Town Centre Library, Sunset Terrace, East Tamaki, Auckland
DAY & DATE: Thursday, 14 December 2017
TIME: 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Lost cat

Carmen from Bucklands Beach

Hello all...

Has anyone seen our cat Ziggy? She’s a small tabby and she’s about 7years old. she’s got a purple collar on with a number that is now incorrect. She was last seen 3days ago on Devon road where we live she usually doesn’t go too far. Unless she walks with me on the beach.

She is very friendly brown tabby with white belly and feet. She doesn’t like being picked up and not to keen on other cats. Also missing a top canine (due to age)

Ive tried to put some photos in the comments it won’t let me attach on post.. 0223985885 is my number.


thank you 🙏 🐈😔

WASHING MACHINE PROBLEMS ? HAIER HWT80W1

Marie from Howick

JUST WANTING TO NO IF ANYONE HAS A HAIER WASHING MACHINE HWT80W1 AND HAS EXPERIENCED ANY PROBLEMS, WE JUST GOT 1 LITERALLY ONLY HAD IT A WEEK VERY DISAPPOINTED WE HAVE A BIG FAMILY AND I CAN ONLY DO A SMALL LOAD IN THIS MACHINE AS THE WATER LEVEL EVEN ON MAX IS VERY LOW, ALSO AFTER EVERY LOAD THE CLOTHES ARE STILL VERY WET SO NEED TO BE PUT BACK ON SPIN AGAIN JUST FOR THEM TO BE DRY ENOUGH TO HANG OUT. DONT EVEN THINK I COULD WASH A BLANKET DUE TO THE WATER LEVEL BEING SO LOW KINDA DEFEATS THE PURPOSE OF A WASHING MACHINE.
A WASHING MACHINE IS SUPPOSE TO MAKE THINGS EASIER OR SO I THOUGHT, THEY SAY ITS ENERGY EFFICIENT BUT HOW MORE LOADS, MORE POWER JUST AS MUCH WATER BECAUSE YOUR HAVING TO DO MORE LOADS VERY FRUSTRATING WHEN ALL YOU NEED IS TO GET THE JOB DONE.
WISH I HAD JUST GOT MY OLDY FIXED NOW INSTEAD..

Scam claiming to be from Caltex

David from Pakuranga Heights

Please be aware that a scam is circulating which offers a $200 Caltex Giftcard (sic). Check the sender, a very long and devious e-mail address unrelated to Caltex. Note also the poor English in the heading : 'Stand a change(sic) to win a StarCash card worth $200'. A reproduction of a realistic looking Caltex card accompanies this invitation to sign up. Best to delete it immediately.
