Chop and serve!

The Team from Resene ColorShop Hastings

What’s better than a chopping board that’s beautiful enough to use as a serving tray as well?

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.

Find out how to create this quick and easy project yourself.

Fibre sales people

Rosie from Parkvale

At 8pm last night (Sunday) when it was almost dark, I had a knock at my back door from another fibre salesman. I was taken aback at the timing but I was told I needed to sign up as the house in front of me had signed up and they (not sure who they are) needed to install it in my house at the same time.
I am totally sick and tired of phone calls, mail, e-mail and door knocks re fibre. I cannot see the purpose of it in my case as only use broadband for e-mails and news feed and use well less than 20 gig a month and mostly use the internet via my cell phone. We still use the landline a lot.

Apparently I will not be able to sell my house in the future if it doesn't have fibre and I will be the only one in the street without it. And the Govt is going to make me have it within 3 years whether I like it or not. I feel pressured (bullied) over fibre and don't see why I should be made to have something that I don't want. So far the best offer I have had if I agree to it is that my monthly phone bills will reduce by $5. In some quotes it will go up.
I have decided not to have it at this stage and I just wish that my decision would be respected and that all the fibre sales people would leave me alone. Is there anywhere that I can register that I want to be fibre-free and that I won't harassed any more over this issue?

Local roofers

Shane from Parkvale

Hi, looking for some suggestions on local roofing companies for a re-roof job. Who’s good to deal with? Who’s not good to deal with? Who does a quality job? Who’s been back to fix mistakes?
Thanks
