No, that’s not an unnecessary Game of Thrones reference (well it is, but that’s not the point). Winter really is coming, and some of the many changes the season brings affects how we dry our laundry.
And while Hawke's Bay doesn’t get snow per se, winter is the rainy season, which removes the option of outdoor line-drying.
Hanging clothes all through the house isn’t really a practical solution – people have to live there, and it’s hard for your guests to relax with a cuppa when your underpants are hanging in plain view.
So how about renting a dryer for the winter months? It's a seriously practical and cost-effective option. Get in touch with Mr Rental Hawke's Bay at 106a Southland Street, Hastings on 0800 111 313.

My heart is broken...from one moment to another, things went from joy to pain and sadness. I still don’t get how a wonderful night ended in such a tragedy. Everything was so chill, so normal; we were all laughing, having fun, and suddenly everything changed 😢 I can’t stop crying. I wish this pain on no one...Nobody should go through this ... I can still hear everyone screaming in panic “omg!, nooo!” I tried but I couldn't do anything ...... I dropped our only bottle of red wine on the floor and I couldn't save it 😂😂
