Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Act of kindness overwhelms mum

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

When a worker at her favourite local store asked Georgia Hutchison​ to wait at the door after she finished shopping, she was confused.
“I thought I was in trouble to be honest,” the mum-of-two said.
So when the staff member returned, carrying a special gift for Hutchison’s son Cayden​, she was pleasantly surprised.
Keitha, who works as a greeter at Kmart Petone, had bought Cayden, who has Down syndrome, a doll designed to look like a child with Down syndrome.
She had noticed the “inclusive” dolls were selling out fast and so purchased one for Cayden and stored it in her car until the family, who are regular customers, next visited the shop.

Push to get every Kiwi scanning, every time

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Come on Neighourly folk remember to scan, every time you go out.
As new highly transmissible Covid-19 strains send countries into second and third lockdowns, Stuff is forging ahead with its “Stop! Scanner time” campaign to remind Kiwis of the importance to keep scanning QR codes, should there be a community outbreak.
Everyone – every single one of us – needs to be scanning the NZ Covid Tracer app, or signing in on a sheet of paper, every single time.
Come on Neighourly folk remember to scan, every time you go out.
