Draught Proof your home with Exceed

Exceed - we fix windows and doors

Hi Neighbours,
Did you know that living in a cold house in winter can affect your health?
If house temperatures fall below 16°C, the risk of respiratory illness increases. This is because cold houses are also usually damp, which can lead to respiratory symptoms.

One of the simplest steps toward a warm home is to stop draughts and keep the heat inside your home.

If you want to learn how to minimize the risks or how to identify draughts on your windows and doors, read our blog post or give us a call on 0800 25 25 00

Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

To find out how to get the most out of your annual leave next year, click here.

Poll: Taking on your town's te reo name

Maxine Jacobs Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Mōrena kiritata,

A push to use Levin’s Māori name Taitoko has stalled and the councillor who backed the move says she’s surprised at the negative reaction to the idea.

In 2018 Horowhenua named its draft town centre strategy “Transforming Taitoko” and councillor Victoria Kaye-Simmons said it would also be nice to acknowledge the town's traditional name.

It has not featured since and Kaye-Simmons a faced backlash after speaking out.

What's the traditional Māori name for your town, and would you support its use?

Poll: Horizons commits to reducing emissions buy 30 per cent in 10 years

Maxine Jacobs Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Mōrena kiritata,

Wider Manawatū councillors have decided to walk the talk when it comes to climate change by aiming to reduce regional council emissions by 30 per cent by 2030.

Horizons Regional Council voted on Tuesday to adopt the target and put $80,000 of unbudgeted money towards understanding its emissions inventory.

Do you think Horizons can do it? Why/why not?
