Northcote Point wharf back in business Monday

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Northcote Point wharf will reopen to the public on Monday and the ferry will be running again for the first time in two years.

The wharf has been renamed to Te Onewa Northcote Point, making it the first dual-named wharf on Auckland's ferry network.

It was closed in 2018 due to structural deterioration- the wooden structure under the deck had to be either repaired or replaced.

The $2.6 million work to renew the 60-year-old pier started in July and finished at the end of the year under budget despite the disruption caused by Covid-19.

Auckland Transport also upgraded the shelter for ferry users, installed new seating, improved security and lighting at the quay.

New World Smeg knife collection scheem

Don from Bayswater

For those who don't know, New World Supermarkets have been running a nation wide campaign to induce you to shop there for the reward of as many Smeg knives as you can collect stickers for, at the rate of one sticker per $20.00 spent . the scheme was to run from 2 Nov. 2020 to 24 Jan 2021 while stocks last . Sounds really good. However, stocks have run out nation wide days ago with no plans for more , yet as at mid morning yesterday the checkouts at Devonport New World were still issuing smeg stickers for redemption. I might be wrong but to me the fact that the stickers for redemption are still being issued when there are no knives left is misleading and deceptive at best and a clear breach of the fair trading act. wonder what the commerce commission would think of it. 0800 943 600
