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?

Lost tool bag

Sarah from Tamatea

Today my hubby lost a valuable tool bag off the back of his truck. I’d appreciate your help in locating it please.
It fell off at approx 3pm today on Te Aute Trust Rd. Whoever found this bag drew an X on the rd with a yellow crayon from the bag.
(some of the smaller hand tools were also found nearby.)
So I’m hoping the person who did this is honest and will hand it in to the local police in Waipawa or Hastings.
The bag has been reported missing so police will have his contact details or here is hubbys’ cell-number
Simon 0276956987.
Let’s see what happens now??? Thanks in anticipation of your help.
