Get fit for summer

Mr Rental Hawkes Bay

Ahead of the cold, dark winter months, it's the perfect time to rent exercise equipment.

Why?

1) You don’t need to travel anywhere and you don’t need the latest workout gear.
2) You can watch your favourite TV program while working out, without judgement.
3) If it’s too cold or dark outside – you can exercise in the comfort of your own home.
4) And best of all, if you are recovering from surgery or an injury then renting fitness equipment could speed up and aid your recovery.

We have a range of treadmills, exercise bikes, rowers and cross trainers. Get in touch with Mr Rental today.

At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.

The Virus

Grant from Raureka

Here's another question for everybody - is it time to start heavily fining or arresting people who are breaking the rules (such as people driving for no proper reason, going to the beach to surf or play, etc etc ). My opinion for what it's worth - they are putting their own families/friends at risk and by extension the rest of us - so fine them heavily (Minimum $500) or arrest if serial offenders. Why should the rest of the population be placed at risk because some idiots feel it's their right to do whatever they want at this time. Comments??

Rude dog owners

Abbie from Parkvale

Sorry got to grumble, I am a dog owner myself and fully understand that walking them is important at this unsettling time. I am only walking my dog very close to home to not be near others and their houses. We just walked around Queen's Square, we in one circuit came across 6 dog poos all fairly fresh, now common dog owners please be responsible and pick that up. You should in my mind never leave the house with your dog without a bag or whatever you use (ours has a container of bags clipped to his lead) to be able to pick it up.

Please keep others who are also wanting to walk/run with or without a dog in mind.
