I suggest everyone who is with spark or skinny check their usage history.

These will be placed on the Glenview community centres facebook page soon. I know I am looking forward to seeing them. Well done to the G Unit Youth group for running such a spooktacular event.  Looking forward to the next fright nite already

Switch to LEDs for the climate

Andrew Caseley from Gen Less

Kahutara Primary School in Featherston is switching to LEDs. All LEDs are Gen Less bulbs as they use less energy, which ultimately helps halt climate change. If we all got on board and switched now it would make a huge difference

The Ministry of Education is considering a ban on choke-risk foods including sausages, chips and popcorn in early childhood centres.

It's said that under-fives are at higher risk of choking because they have small air and food passages and are still learning how to chew food.
