I have moved to Katikati and will miss so much about Hastings and all the lovely people there. Hastings is the most convenient town I have ever lived in with everything you need being just around the corner or within 10 mins drive and the airport only 20 mins away. And no huge waiting in traffic.
In fact the only complaint of late has been the near impossibility to see a doctor - haven't been able to see mine for over a year. Fortunately that is not a problem up here. But the traffic is dreadful and everything is so far from everything else. But the move was necessary as we aged and needed to be nearer the support of family.
Keep safe and well all you lovely people and I will not forget you.
One last ouch to raise as much as we can for the HNI Heart Foundation fundraiser!

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.
Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.
We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.
This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
We received an email in our inbox this morning supposedly from the Hastings Environment Centre seeking donations towards keeping the Centre open. This may NOT be genuine, so do NOT donate any money until its authenticity has been confirmed! I have sent an email to the real Environment Centre, but do not expect to hear back today (Sunday).
