Have you done a driving test recently?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

A Hamilton woman was failed on the spot, and told her 'dirty' front seat was a Covid-19 risk.

Letticia Pevy, 38, had held her restricted licence for years but needed her full licence for work.

She went to sit hers at VTNZ Frankton, but was failed as soon as the testing officer opened the passenger door.

Did you listen to the Three Waters Reform announcement?

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Big news on the water front this morning - the Three Waters Reform is going ahead.

It will change how drinking, waste, and storm water are managed, and has stirred up opposition in local councils, which currently own water assets.

The Government has announced four new water entities will take on those assets. Learn more here.

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.

We all have special things we want to protect and share with the people we love when we pass away. It could be your record collection, perhaps some artwork, or even that classic car you’ve spent so long restoring. If it’s important to you, put it in your will. ​

An up-to-date will is the best way to protect your legacy – and your prized possessions. ​

If you last made a will when disco was all the rage, it’s time for an update. ​
