The Team from Resene ColorShop Te Rapa

We took a plain wooden chopping board and spruced it up with an art deco-inspired pattern, using colours from the Resene range.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

Non-urgent patients asked to keep emergency department free

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Non-urgent patients are asked not to show up at Hamilton's emergency department unless they have a health emergency.

Waikato Hospital is so full that some non-urgent surgery is being postponed. People who are unwell but don't need to go to ED can visit their GP, local urgent care centre, or call Healthline 0800 611 116.

Those who need immediate or urgent help should dial 111, or go straight to the Waikato Hospital Emergency Department.

Dallas Fisher, chair of regional economic development agency Te Waka, said he knew of one major Waikato construction company that had 37 projects in the works.

The region is "ready to pop".
