Free rides, games, toy making and DJ music coming to Ngāti Toa Domain

Porirua City Council

Children’s Day at Ngāti Toa Domain for 2024 is set to be a fun-filled event for our city’s tamariki and rangatahi.

Timed to coincide with national celebrations for Te rā o ngā Tamariki/Children’s Day, Porirua City Council has organised a day of fun and activities on Sunday 3 March, from 11am–3pm.

Either pack a picnic and make a day of it or purchase something delicious from one of the food trucks. Bunnings Porirua will also be there with a free sausage sizzle while stocks last.

While enjoying some tasty kai, you can listen to tunes from young DJs aged between 12–15 years-old from the Aotearoa DJ Academy.

For those wanting free active fun, the inflatables will be out, with an inflatable sports field, mega obstacle course, inflatable slide, two baby castles and a baby bouncer to choose from – plus much more!

Say goodbye to tyre waste


About 40% of the 6.5 million tyres Kiwis use every year are recycled, repurposed, or used as tyre-derived fuel. But the rest end up in landfills, stockpiled or dumped.

The good news is now there’s an easy solution to all that tyre waste. It’s called Tyrewise and is New Zealand’s first national tyre recycling scheme.

Tyrewise ensures that tyres in Aotearoa New Zealand are recycled or repurposed properly, saving millions from going to the landfill.

Beds 4 U Henderson

Hi Neighbours,

Your master bedroom is your sanctuary – the ultimate escape from a long day’s work and stress.

But, have you ever felt like something was missing in your master bedroom décor?

That extra touch of luxury that elevates it from just another room to a space fit for royalty?

We’ve compiled a list of seven luxurious items that will transform your master bedroom into the oasis of your dreams.

To achieve a luxurious look in your master bedroom, several must-have items can elevate the overall decor.

Here are seven suggestions for your master bedroom decor and layout:

Statement Bedframe. Invest in a luxurious and visually striking bedframe as the centrepiece of your bedroom. Choose a design that complements your master bedroom decor and overall aesthetic, such as an upholstered headboard or a wooden frame, for a sleek and modern platform bed.

High-Quality Bedding. Opt for high-quality bedding materials like Tencel to add a touch of luxury and comfort. Choose soft and plush duvet covers, pillowcases, and sheets in neutral or rich colours to create a sophisticated look.

Plush Pillows and Throws. Add layers of comfort and style with plush pillows and cozy throws. Opt for bamboo gel, natural silk, or cotton pillows to create visual interest and enhance the luxurious ambience.

Mirrors. Introduce large, decorative mirrors or a dresser and mirror combo to reflect light and create the illusion of a more spacious room. Choose dresser and mirror combos with beautiful frames that match your overall master bedroom decor style.

Stylish Seating Area. If you have enough space, create a cozy seating area for your master bedroom decor and layout. Include a comfortable armchair or lift-powered recliner to suit your contemporary or traditional style. Use luxurious fabrics and textures for the upholstery, and consider adding a decorative accent pillow or a faux fur throw for added comfort.

Bedside Furniture. They help to give the room a more polished and finished look. When choosing end tables or nightstands for your master bedroom decor, look for ones made from high-quality materials such as solid NZ Pine.

Tallboy. This piece of furniture not only adds practical storage solutions but also provides an elegant and sophisticated look that enhances the overall aesthetic appeal of your room. Choose one made from solid NZ pine, engineered wood, or pine veneer.

Your master bedroom is your oasis away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
So how can you transform it into a place where you can relax and unwind in luxury?

With beds and mattresses from Beds4U!
