Happy Matariki

Louise and Stephen Stowell from BBQSauce

What is Matariki?

Matariki is the name for the traditional Māori new year which occurs between late May and early June. Similar to Chinese New Year, the exact timings vary each year and begin with the reappearance of the Matariki star cluster. When this star cluster rises, the celebrations begin on the first full moon that follows.

Lawn mowing issue

Aaron from Nawton

Hi guys. Does any one use wayne Smyth? He was an excellent lawn mowing guy and for past month I had made numerous txts, emails, phone attempts to him and no response or of a sudden my lawns are not being mowed and wondering if anyone else has had the same issue?

I will be looking for quotes for lawnmowing people to be able to provide regular news take away clippings if know anyone.

Support a Kiwi dad this Father's Day

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

Father's Day is just around the corner and for many Kiwi dads, getting a treat isn't an option due to the family's limited disposable income or being a solo dad. You can make Father's Day go further by donating a Father's Bundle to a Kiwi family for only $19.

At this time of year, we want to acknowledge all the dads in New Zealand who work hard to provide for their families - particularly the families who can't make ends meet. So, we created a bundle of goodies that these Kiwi dads will love! The bundle has some chicken, a chunky soup, an apple pie for the family to share, plus a chocolate bar (just for Dad)!
