Lawnmower repair

Tammy from Aranui

Hello is there anyone one out there that maybe tinkers with lawnmowers in their spare time. Mine won't start. It sounds like it wants to but just won't. Happy to pay to have it looked at, but cannot afford to take it to a shop and pay their prices at the moment. If my lawns get much … View moreHello is there anyone one out there that maybe tinkers with lawnmowers in their spare time. Mine won't start. It sounds like it wants to but just won't. Happy to pay to have it looked at, but cannot afford to take it to a shop and pay their prices at the moment. If my lawns get much longer I will be on here looking for some grazing cattle next. Thank you.

- Green is for I'm OK

- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in

- Red is for an emergency

This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while … View more

New Zealanders are locking down their cats, for good

The Team Reporter from The Press

New Zealand is a nation of cat lovers, and increasingly – at least anecdotally – we’re keeping them inside.

Owners say welfare and conservation concerns are the main drivers; experts are cautious not to say too much, and cats are silent on the issue thus far.

What's worse — keeping … View more
New Zealand is a nation of cat lovers, and increasingly – at least anecdotally – we’re keeping them inside.

Owners say welfare and conservation concerns are the main drivers; experts are cautious not to say too much, and cats are silent on the issue thus far.

What's worse — keeping a cat indoors 24/7, or letting it roam free where it will hunt birds, and possibly be injured?

Overnight someone jemmied open the side window of my wee van and stole my portable mobility scooter. As you can imagine l am incredibly distressed at losing my transport. The battery was inside charging so It will be of no use to them and l imagine they may dump it so l'd be really grateful if everyone could keep an eye out or if they could let me know if they see it for sale. I live on Gloucester street near Woodham road and the van was parked outside my house. It's an older white Toyota hiace so
I'd also be grateful if anyone who saw anything unusual last night could let me know. Many thanks. I have added a photo of the scooter although the pedals on mine are slightly different.
Have also posted this on the crime page.

Not only is Insulation a great way at keeping your home warm and energy efficient, but it can also help reduce noise travelling through your home!
The dense structure of Insulation helps absorb both airborne and impact noise throughout the home.

Airborne noise is noise that travels throughout the air, such as traffic, TV noise, dogs barking and voices. Impact noise is vibrations that are carried through the house, such as footsteps, washing machine vibrations etc.

Fiberglass and wool insulation are the best types of insulation for reducing airborne and impact noise due to their many fibrous layers.

You can see our full range of insulation on our website:
