Meet Buddy, he is looking for his retirement home. Great with other dogs & kids. Even though he is 8 he is still very active and will chase the ball all day if you will throw it! He has a love for chasing wild rabbits so to be on the safe side it would be better for his new home not to have any pet rabbits . He currently lives with a couple cats & he seems ok with them.

Buddy is very intelligent & loves a cuddle & to watch tv. He will require a fully fenced yard as he has started taking himself for walks to see the neighbours. He does pull on the lead a little bit but because he is only small it doesn't give you much of an arm workout.

Buddy is desexed, vaccinated & registered. If you think you can offer Buddy a loving home please get in touch.

10 of the most common power wasters.

Paul from Pukete

Winter is here and with the long nights and colder weather comes higher power bills for many of our customers.
But there are lots of things you can do to make sure you’re not using and paying for, power that you don’t need to be using.

Winter is here and with the long nights and colder weather comes higher power bills for many of our customers.
But there are lots of things you can do to make sure you’re not using and paying for, power that you don’t need to be using.
Here are 10 of the most common power wasters.

A faulty Ajax valve
Check if you have hot water leaking onto your roof. If you do the chances are your ajax valve is faulty.

Leaking hot water taps
One leaking tap can use around $40 in unnecessary power in a year – it’s literally money down the drain.

Hot water too hot
Water that’s over 60°C when it comes out of the tap is too hot and uses unnecessary power.

Inefficient use of heaters
Use timers to make sure you are not wasting energy on heating when it’s not needed. Check if you are also using suitable heating for the space.

A lack of insulation
Ceiling and underfloor insulation can help reduce heat loss by over 50%, makes your home easier to heat and cuts your power bills.

Poorly ventilated laundry
If your laundry is not well ventilated your dryer is forced to use the damp air it has just expelled, drying takes longer and your power bill increases.

Extra high shower pressure
If a 2l ice-cream container held under your shower fills in less than 15 seconds, think about getting a low flow shower head. You’ll save on water heating.

Faulty oven thermostats
Without accurate temperature control, your oven wastes power.


Inefficient use of hot water
A family of four could save $900 a year by cutting 15 minute showers to 5 minutes.

Worn door seals
Fridges, freezers and ovens with worn door seals all use more power than they need to.
So it’s worth taking a little time to check these things in your home - it could save you hundreds of dollars.

The cost of visiting the doctor will reduce for people with a Community Services Card under changes announced in the 2018 Budget.
This will give up to 540,000 people access to low-cost GP visits - making it around $20 to $30 cheaper.
Seniors who have either a combined SuperGold and Community Services Card or a Community Services Card should also see a reduction in the cost of visiting their GP by 1 December, 2018.
General practices can choose whether or not to provide the new low-costs visits so please check with your doctor later this year to see whether they have chosen to opt in.
Under the changes, people receiving the Accommodation Supplement or living in public housing will also get a Community Services Card, giving them access to cheaper doctors visits.
To find out more about these changes, go to www.health.govt.nz... and search for ‘primary health care subsidies’.

As part of the Families Package, the Government has introduced the Winter Energy Payment to help people keep warm during winter.
Search for ‘Winter Energy Payment’ on the Work and Income Website. If you’re getting NZ Super or Veteran’s Pension, you’ll automatically get the Winter Energy Payment from 1 July.

Couples and people with dependent children will get $31.82 a week.

Single people will get $20.46 a week.
1 July falls in the middle of a pay period.
This means you’ll get 10 days of Winter Energy Payment on 10 July and the full amount from 24 July (until it finishes on 29 September).
