I am looking for two plus size ladies who would be willing to come around home in Breezes Road and let me do some videos and photo's to show my great range of clothing.
In return they can pick a garment of their choice for supporting me.

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,

Hi folks,
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: homed@stuff.co.nz.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.

A Tsunami Warning has been issued following the M8.0 earthquake north-east of New Zealand near KERMADEC ISLANDS REGION.
People near coast from BAY OF ISLANDS to WHANGAREI including GREAT BARRIER ISLAND and from MATATA to TOLAGA BAY must MOVE IMMEDIATELY to nearest high ground, out of all tsunami evacuation zones, or as far inland as possible. Evacuate these areas even if you did not feel the earthquake. DO NOT WAIT. A damaging tsunami is possible.

People in all other areas who felt a LONG or STRONG earthquake should MOVE IMMEDIATELY to the nearest high ground, out of tsunami evacuation zones, or as far inland as possible.

This evacuation advice overrides the current COVID-19 Alert Level requirements. Do not stay at home. MOVE IMMEDIATELY. Stay 2 metres away from others if you can and if it is safe to do so.

People evacuating should walk, run or cycle if possible to reduce chance of getting stuck in traffic. Do not return until all-clear is given by Civil Defence.

Covid-19: Aucklanders should take level 3 restrictions with them

Hi neighbours,

Flights from Auckland to the other main cities have continued as normal since the Auckland region moved to Covid-19 alert level 3 and the rest of New Zealand moved to alert level 2 on Sunday.

Some 108 flights departed Auckland Airport on Monday, including 15 to Christchurch, 14 to Wellington and seven to Queenstown.

Those travelling during the weekend included about 2000 Aucklanders who were in Christchurch for the city’s largest outdoor music festival, Electric Avenue.

Microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles said anyone travelling from Auckland needed to take their level 3 restrictions with them because they could unknowingly be incubating the virus.

Christchurch City Council’s draft 10-year budget outlines an intention to increase on-street parking from July from $3.10 an hour to $4.50 – a 45 per cent increase.

The cost to park at the council’s Lichfield St car park building could also rise from $2.80 an hour to $4 – a 43 per cent increase. The rate at the Art Gallery car park could double from $2 an hour to $4.

In a bid to cut operating costs the council is also proposing to reduce library hours, permanently shut the mobile library and close the Akaroa and Lyttelton service centres, as well as the Riccarton Rd bus lounges.

It's a long time since I shared anything about myself and we have been encouraged to do so which I think is a great idea.

My name is Raewyn Murray and I am the Lead for New Brighton. I have been the Lead since the beginning of Neighbourly - well a few weeks or so after it started. There have been a number of other Leads that have come and gone but I've stayed.

I live in South New Brighton although since the introduction of Southshore many years ago we became New Brighton. I still like to think of myself as South New Brighton.

I'm married to David who is from Dublin (brought home my Irish Souveneir) and we have four beautiful daughters.

Our children are 4th Generation on our property, the first being my grandparents. So we've been on this property a fair while now.

I am a Photographer and own my own company Raewyn Murray Photography. I do all kinds of photography, it's my passion and I give 100% to all my jobs. I have several other jobs - Event Manager, International Homestay (when we had internationals coming), Security at 2 companies and in my spare time I volunteer at Willowbank Wildlife Reserve.

I organised, ran and photographed the New Brighton Spring Music Festivals 2015 and 2016. It was a lot of work as I did both by myself. Raised money for it to go ahead (a big feat for 1 person with no committee), got bands, childrens' events and activities, foodies and all the other added things needed for a festival. They were both great but hindered by either wind or rain but still had a great feel and the bands etc were awesome. 2015 I made a book (still to do the 2016 as been too busy) and it is in the New Brighton Library.

So now I've done it, how about some of you tell us about yourself as well.

Have you all had a good look around Neighbourly. There is so much to read and always great information being put on here.

I like it to advertise for my Photography and keep up with what's happening in the neighbourhood. It's also a great way to keep informed about anything happening good or bad and to keep a look out for those lost kitties etc.

We do have a great community here - thanks for being part of it.
Raewyn
Neighbourly Lead for New Brighton
