Anti-Covid border between Raglan and Hamilton 'should be investigated' - mayor

Jack from Melville

"Hamilton mayor Paula Southgate says she wants to investigate the feasibility of setting up border controls between the city and Raglan, an ongoing Covid hotspot."
Good one. Why should we lose freedoms due to science deniers refusing vaccines and offering YouTubes as "research"?… View more

NZ Post Couriers

Alan from Glenview

NZ Post Couriers would have to be the worst courier company for service in NZ.

On Saturday we had a parcel which had been sent per NZ Post Couriers delivered to our letter box, not by NZ Post but by a person who had found it on the road a kilometre away! With it a note: Courier dropped on road, Homestead Place. I have tried to contact NZ Post Couriers per phone to no avail. I rang the 0800 number and was directed to a series of numbers, but nothing for complaints. I then tried their website and found a section for feedback. They said that they would not answer feedback but I decided to write something anyway but the comment box only allowed me to enter one line. Obviously they don't want complaints. I will in future not deal with NZ companies who intend to send my goods per NZ Post Couriers. Meanwhile, many thanks to the kind and honest person in Homestead Place who took the trouble to deliver the parcel.

Not only is Insulation a great way at keeping your home warm and energy efficient, but it can also help reduce noise travelling through your home!
The dense structure of Insulation helps absorb both airborne and impact noise throughout the home.

Airborne noise is noise that travels throughout the air, such as traffic, TV noise, dogs barking and voices. Impact noise is vibrations that are carried through the house, such as footsteps, washing machine vibrations etc.

Fiberglass and wool insulation are the best types of insulation for reducing airborne and impact noise due to their many fibrous layers.

You can see our full range of insulation on our website:
