Basket Weaving 101

Matthew from Ilam

Hi. My wife has a pretty cane basket she uses on her bike. It leads a fairly hard life, though, and is starting to come unraveled. Does anyone know of a person or place who can restore/repair cane baskets?


MTIA, Matt

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Canterbury authorities have dropped their goal of 20 million annual bus trips by 2020 as public transport use declines in Christchurch.

Read more here and tell us what you think of ECan's plan in the comments below.

Supermarkets Again! LOYALTY CARDS

Michele from Avonhead

So these loyalty cards, I've yet to benefit from any of them so have stopped wasting my time with it, much to the surprise of the checkout operators.

These cards are to gather information about our individual shopping habits so that the supermarket can hit us up with 'deals' that fit our profiles. I prefer incognito shopping without a spy collecting my data and selling it off to the highest bidder!

How do you find them?
