Talented web-designer back in NZ after Lockdown

Shirley from Kerikeri District

"I'm bunking school", he said one day.
"What classes are you missing today?", I asked.
"Art & Graphics mainly!"
"Art?" I said, "You love Art!"
"Frankly, Mum I get more Art done at home and I've got an assessment coming up."
"Why do you get more done at home?", I asked
"Because the teacher always asks me to help everyone else with their Art and I know Photoshop better than the teacher!"...
that was a few years ago...
Now he specialises in front-end web-design, logos, branding & graphics.

Open Wider

Jude from West Coast Northland

It was a sad loss to kaikohe that Wiremu Reihana, our great dentist, moved to Whangarei's Tikipunga.
Now we have to travel to kerikeri, Kaitaia, or as far as Whangarei.
My son's recent trip to a dentist in Kerikeri left him traumatised for being chastised about being 1 minute late, and then instead of a small filling , all he got was an X-ray and a quote of over $6000 for work totally unrequired . When the dentist says "open wider" , does he or she mean your wallet or your mouth ?
Needless to say that dental practice in Kerikeri will be avoided in future.
And if they're not forthcoming with the X ray , they'll be named.
