Kmart's list of 31 recalls

Hi neighbours, do you love Kmart?

Hundreds of thousands of inexpensive items that pass through the retail giant's checkouts every year, so it's only to be expected there will be recalls – Kmart even has a recalls page on its website, and there are 31 products on the list.

The $55 timber Occasional Chair is the latest casualty, although this is a withdrawal rather than a recall. We don't know the reason for its withdrawal, except Kmart says it is for "a potential quality issue". But what other products have been found wanting?

Hi Friends and Neighbours,

So, here is an odd question...are you ready for it?
Anyone know of someone with Homing Doves or Butterflies who might like to get involved with Dove Release at a funeral or unveiling or memorial service? I can find only so much online for weddings, but can't find an actual contact in Hawke's Bay.
If you know of someone that might like to discuss this idea, please let me know.

Beware of scammers.

Colleen from Akina

I am guessing they were going to ask for my account details next.

New Zealand couples choosing not to have children because they don't want to contribute to the rapid decline of the planet say they are making a sacrifice for society.

The trend has been recognised globally as 'birth striking', where women and men are abstaining from procreation in a bid to raise awareness about "climate breakdown and civilisation collapse".

Do you think this is an effective way of combating climate change issues?

Hi People,

I am not wanting to start a conversation regarding if immunisation is right wrong good or bad as that is not what this is about. I sincerely hope you and your families and friends stay well.

Please read and pass on as you feel appropriate:

Copied from Health Nurse that was emailed today.

A message from your Public Health Nurse:

We have a child with measles in Hawkes Bay. Measles is a serious, highly infectious viral disease that is easy to prevent through immunisation. We suggest you release the following information again to your whanau and wider community.
If your child has had two doses of the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) immunisation they are protected.

As there is a high chance that measles could spread throughout Hawke’s Bay, we urge you take the following steps to make sure your child is protected:

Check your child has had two doses of the MMR immunisation.
o If your child only has a record of receiving one dose of MMR they should have another as soon as possible
o If your child has no record of MMR immunisation they should have one dose now and a second dose FOUR weeks later.
o Immunisation is FREE from your GP or Practice Nurse.


Please make sure you have a copy of your child’s immunisation certificate, so you can show this to their school if required. If your child has contact with a person with confirmed measles they may be asked to keep away from school for up to two weeks if there is no record of them having been immunised against MMR.


Immunisation is highly recommended as it protects your child and helps prevent the spread of infection in the community when an outbreak occurs.
If you require further information, you can find out more from the Ministry of Health’s website www.health.govt.nz...

Wattie's Cans for Good

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

Our can collection initiative 'Cans for Good' with Wattie's is back for 2019 and we'd love you to get involved! The campaign will run for two weeks between Monday 5th and Friday 16th August and registration is open to all schools from kindergarten to high schools.

Our can collection initiative 'Cans for Good' with Wattie's is back for 2019 and we'd love you to get involved! The campaign will run for two weeks between Monday 5th and Friday 16th August and registration is open to all schools from kindergarten to high schools.

*What is Cans for Good?*
Cans for Good is an exciting national education and can collection campaign. Last year, Cans for Good was a huge success - more than 240 schools took part, collecting more than 70,000 cans to fill Salvation Army foodbanks.
The campaign brings together a charitable can collection drive and creative competition. It's supported by a set of teacher resources designed to engage children in fun, team-based learning experiences. The resources are available to download for free when you register online.

*Prizes*
As well as doing good in your community, having fun and learning, your school can also win some great prizes! Along with a competition for the best can creation, we have introduced a fun new campaign where your students can show or tell us how they think Wattie’s Spaghetti is made. We'll pick the most creative entry from each category: Kindergarten, Primary/Intermediate and Secondary School. The overall winner will receive a Wattie’s lunch shout for their school!

*Register today!*
Since the Watties partnership began in 1994, more than 1.4 million cans have been donated and this year through the support of New Zealand schools participating in Cans for Good we hope to achieve our target of 1.5 million cans!
Cans from each school will be given to the local Salvation Army or community foodbanks. These will help refill the shelves after the high winter demand period and enable schools around New Zealand to make a real difference to those in need in their community. To take part, register online by 31st July.
