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.

Tell us the story behind your bear

Katie Townshend Reporter from Hawke's Bay News

We're going on a bear hunt! People across the country are popping bears in their windows. But what's the story behind the fuzzy faces? Tell us about your bear - what's their name, where did you get it, how far have they travelled? Post a photo and tell us their story! (Please mark any posts you don't want to see published NFP).

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.
