Did you know you can view some of our retirement villages in the comfort of your own home?
Immerse yourself in our beautiful villages by taking a ‘walk through’ with our virtual tours. Stroll through the lovely gardens, explore the village amenities, and step into a beautiful independent apartment, serviced apartment or care room. You can navigate your way through each featured room or area of the village and really get a feel for the space. It’s a great way to obtain a more intricate view before you make a visit to the village.
UPDATE: Thank you for all your questions. We're picking the best to send off to the houseplant doctor from Kings Plant Barn and the answers will be published in an article on Homed soon.
Are your houseplants looking worse for wear? The experts at Kings Plant Barn would love to help. Send us your houseplant questions and problems to firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave them in the comments, for the houseplant doctor to diagnose. Pictures are encouraged.
Things aren’t looking good for this year’s walnuts. Plenty on the tree but they seem to be having problems releasing from the husks. Another unusual problem is that someone is eating them on the tree. A count this morning found 40% had been gnawed, presumably by mice, judging by the size of some of the holes in the shells and the successful hollowing out of the meat inside.
Anyone else finding the same?
Christchurch’s council is rolling out three new trials to help mitigate a flurry of complaints about the effects of the city’s newest motorway.
NZTA principal project manager Brendon French said so far they have heard from 30 people who are finding the new Christchurch Northern Corridor louder than expected. Congestion has also been an issue, with cars backed up along Cranford St in morning peak traffic.
From Monday, peak-hour bus priority lanes will be installed on Cranford Street between Innes Rd and Berwick St on a trial basis, and cars travelling down Westminster St cannot turn right in or out of Francis Ave. From March 8, Thames St will be trialled as a cul-de-sac.
