Hi all,
I was cycling eastbound on Riccarton Road on Saturday 13 August approx 1:30pm in the marked cycle lane when I was hit by a vehicle (blue Subaru) that was wanting to turn left into a property (Kauri Lodge opposite the McDonald's).
Driver initially accepted fault but is now going back on his words and is refusing to cover bike repairs. I've submitted a police report and looking for witnesses to confirm what unfolded.
Might be a long shot but if you happened to have seen the incident and can come forward as a witness please contact me on 0211072797 or inha.go@outlook.com, would greatly appreciate it!
Thanks, Inha

Inspiration Needed!

Dale from Harewood

I need some inspiration for the best ways to give away dozens of beautiful magazines. Most of them are not very old, and would provide hours of reading and enjoyment.
There is also a collection of Vogue magazines, dating back to the 80’s.

I need some inspiration for the best ways to give away dozens of beautiful magazines. Most of them are not very old, and would provide hours of reading and enjoyment.
There is also a collection of Vogue magazines, dating back to the 80’s.
A family member has been an avid buyer/reader, but it’s time to clear them.
I do not wish to dump them. A few examples are included here.
Apart from advertising them on Neighbourly or Marketplace, does anyone know of other places that would be interested?
Many thanks!

65-year-old says it's wrong she gets less NZ Super for being married

The Team Reporter from The Press

A married Christchurch woman says it is “ridiculous” she is paid less New Zealand Superannuation than someone who is single and living with another adult.

A married Christchurch woman says it is “ridiculous” she is paid less New Zealand Superannuation than someone who is single and living with another adult.

A married person gets a pension of $817.32 a fortnight, before tax, compared with the $990.20 received by a person sharing with someone who is not their spouse or partner.

“I have a friend who isn't in a relationship, but she's sharing a house, and they share all the expenses, and she's going to end up getting $172.88 more than me a fortnight which is just plain wrong,” said Daphne, who did not want her last name used for privacy concerns.

The combined fortnightly payment for a couple is $1634.64.

The Ministry of Social Development said people in a relationship were more likely to share a wider range of costs and resources than a single person living with another adult.

Shout out to the lovely Bonnie at Urban Hair and Beauty who did a fabulous job of my hair recently.
My hair was quite yellow and knotty before she made it look so amazing!
