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.

I’m being asked if I can go back to work next week. Does anyone know if there is any child care for essential workers in Havelock North?
I don’t have anyone to look after my son. He usually comes to work with me, but can’t while the lockdown is on.
