Life Drawing/painting session: expressions of interest

Tim from Remuera

Seeking other people who would like to draw/paint from a life model, regularly. We would all share costs equally, with the studio space (large, warm, heated, insulated, private “rumpus room”, in my central Remuera home). NO CHARGE for use of the space.Easy street access and parking. I am a Kiwi painter, (UC Berkeley. Certificate in Studio Art - acrylic on large scale canvas, who exhibited professionally in San Francisco for a decade or so, was there for over 20 years, and need to work my artistic skills back up, following hiatus). Can store your drawing boards/easels if needed etc. Share all costs of professional models, etc equally. Light refreshments and good music possible, if wanted (to be decided by group). Must be light-hearted, good sense of humor, wanting to improve art practice. Can decide times etc later. I am a school teacher, so must be after work hours. Let me know what you think. All expressions of interest will be welcomed. Would like to avoid strong solvents. Also seeking professional models. Tim

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)

What's blocking your drains?

Drain Ranger

As scary as these pictures look, they’re real footage of CCTV inspections in our area. The worst part is, you often don't know your drains are blocked until you're faced with drains overflowing or a blocked toilet.

Ever forgotten a spanner or two on the floor after doing DIY? No biggie, right? Trouble is, rain will wash everything in its path down your stormwater drain. A Hydro Jett is an affordable way to maintain your drains and can save you money in the long term.

Call the locals working for locals, email hello@drainranger.co.nz, call 021 709 783 or visit www.drainranger.co.nz and get the ball rolling and your drains flowing.
