Cell Phone in car use

Robert from Motueka

Just so you know if you get caught using your phone will driving the FINE has now doubled to $150. Driving between Motueka and Nelson every weekday I have lost count of drivers using their phones. I do hope you get caught. The fine should be $500 and your phone taken off you. 22 people have died on NZ roads in the past 5 years due to phone use.
Just my thoughts.

A shot in the dark but I'm looking for some help

Sue from Motueka

Hi I have a number of injuries which prevent me from doing some very simple tasks! I need to change a light bulb, to re-string two strands on my washing line and to dig a few holes to plant fruit trees.
I would be happy to offer coffee and baking as well as a few dollars for this help.....anyone willing to pop into Staple Street for an hour or so??
