From Monday 9 December to Sunday 15 December, it’s ‘Shop Local Week’, where we’re asking readers to rally behind their local businesses. They’re the heart of communities, and as we’re heading into Christmas, it’s the perfect time to do a spot of shopping!
We’ve partnered with 2degrees, which is offering a $20,000 media spend package for a business in the Waikato to put towards promoting themselves. Nominate your favourite local retailer or let them know they can nominate themselves through this link.
Let’s support our communities and get behind our awesome local businesses!
My partner was approached by two strangers at the Morrinsville Recreation grounds on Friday, 6th Dec, at midday after walking our two dogs. While he was coaxing our bulldog/boxer into his truck, one of the two guys approached him from behind and reached forward to grab our dog's harness, which resulted in my partner confronting the stranger who quickly retreated to his van. My partner promptly left in his truck with our two dogs in case both strangers decided to grow a set of balls and try again. He found a policeman in town and reported the incident, and coincidentally, the same van with the same occupants drove past them and parked a few hundred meters up the road. This policeman then approached the van to have a word with them about this incident. My partner did not recognize these two men but would recommend to everyone to be mindful they drive a white van, work as a pair, and seem to be scouting for 'dogs to order.'
I’m in need of recommendations for a multi-skilled handyman that takes pride in their work.
Thanks in advance for your help
Hi all, I have found a scooter on the footpath outside my property in the Glenview area, has anyone had theirs stolen? Pm me with a description if you think it could be yours.
