Fox terrier needs rehoming

Ruth from Akina

Kia ora,
A neighbour is moving and has just discovered they cannot take their dog with them. He is a nine year old fox terrier, good with children and a good watchdog. If you know anyone looking for a dog, I know they will be relieved to have a good home for him.

Hi neighbours, maybe you're wondering what Revolution Bikes is all about. Well in a nutshell we're a friendly local bike shop and we've chosen to specialise in ebikes and mountain bikes.

That can be confusing for some folks when they see that we also sell kids bikes and other types of bikes like pathway bikes too! Trust us, it's like this - our focus is on quality products, personal service, and knowing our industry and what local families need.

We know the local riding conditions, and we know the best type of bikes for that, and after owning Revolution Bikes since 21 December 2009, we know what people are looking for and which of their needs we want to meet.

This means we don't try to be the cheapest source of bikes. We are the best, not the cheapest. I'll write more about this in a separate post perhaps, but I suspect people who only want the cheapest have already switched off!

So I'll put up a few of our favourite ebike photos, these bikes are ones that meet our expectation of quality and price, e.g. good value for money, worth paying for, utilising quality and current technology, comfortable and attractive, and something we recommend to our friends and our parent's friends.

You can find all these bikes on our website, just look in whatever category e.g. Leisure e-bikes, or e-mountain bikes to find them.

As always, when you want to talk about bikes please get in contact (phone, email, website, facebook messenger, or from a few meters away at the store!)

NZ Gardener's new issue is out now

Jo McCarroll - NZ Gardener editor Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

We are (very) excited to say that the May issue of NZ Gardener is on sale today, and absolutely packed with the good stuff!

Lynda Hallinan reflects on 60 lessons for gardeners from the lockdown (with plenty of idea on what you can sow and grow in May); there's a bumper gardening quiz; we suggest five herbs to reduce anxiety and promote calmness; and visit a Taupo sanctuary full of art and alive with native birds and a wild and wonderful garden in Glenorchy. And since we've been gardening in isolation, Jack Hobbs talks to gardeners on the Chatham Islands about how they keep things growing, 650km from the nearest garden centre. Normally our subscribers get their copy before it goes on sale, of course, but things aren't quite normal right now so if your copy hasn't arrived yet, it should be with you very soon! We are so pleased to have a new issue of your favourite magazine for you, and I cannot wait to hear what you think. NZ Gardener has been informing and inspiring New Zealand gardeners for more than 75 years and we're incredibly grateful to our readers, especially our subscribers, because we couldn't do it without you. And by the way subscribing is easy and a much cheaper way to get your magazine each month! And would an NZ Gardener sub make a great Mother's Day gift this Sunday, you ask? I think we all know the answer to that! Jo

The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us all how quickly life can change. For many New Zealanders, this has meant job losses or significant pay cuts – and the family pantry suddenly empty.

For the past two months, there’s been a huge demand for food parcels from local charities around the country. Find out what we’ve been doing behind the scenes to support these charities who are helping New Zealanders get back on their feet.

(PS – we want to say a special ‘thank you’ to all of you who have made a donation at your local store. Your generous support is helping keep New Zealanders fed.)

During this time of COVID-19, it’s important we remember the different signs of stroke and that stroke is always a medical emergency.

One New Zealander every hour experiences stroke. But if you think F.A.S.T. you could save someone’s life and give them the best chance of recovery.

F - Face - Is it drooping on one side?
A - Arm - Is one arm weak?
S - Speech - Is it mixed up, slurred or lost?
T - Take Action - Call 111 immediately.

Think F.A.S.T., act fast, and keep looking out for each other.

Thank you, from the Stroke Foundation of New Zealand.

Send a Level 3 Love Letter to someone you miss

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi Neighhours,

Hi Neighhours,

It's been a tough last few weeks, right? When life gets hard and the world gets scary, it's our loved ones we turn to for support.

But this extraordinary coronavirus pandemic is different. Many of us can't see our most special friends and whānau because we want to keep them safe, and we want to get through this as a nation by following social distancing and Covid-19 Alert Level 3 rules.

While thousands of people are returning to work, visiting friends and family outside of your bubble may still be off the cards for some time longer.

Do you have a message for someone you can't see in person? A shout out to a sibling or best friend? A much-loved and missed grandparent? A new baby you need to virtually cuddle?

Level 3 Love Letters is an opportunity to share a video message for a loved one on Stuff.

You can upload your video here so we can share it with them and New Zealand
