Did the Basin Reserve miss an opportunity to makes the loos more equal?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

An $7.5 million dollar renovation brought the 95-year-old Museum Stand at the Basin Reserve up to modern standards - except for the women's toilets. The stand reopened on Friday, an hour before the first test against India began. During the test the only part of the interior open to the public was the new toilets. Sadly, that means less access for women. Men's toilets have two access points from the outside while women queue in the corridor, missing the on-field action. What was your experience?

At-Home Fire Safety Checklist

Fire and Emergency from Fire and Emergency New Zealand

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.
