Phone Scam

Fiona from Bellevue

Just a warning as we received an automated phone message this morning purportedly from Spark stating that our internet was compromised and to "press 1" to speak with a technician.

This is a scam (have reported to Spark and Netsafe), which many will realise, but it does sound official so thought it worth putting out a warning to keep our neighbourhoods safe. Together we are stronger!

With elections just around the corner, this is a good time to pinpoint the issues that affect you and are important to you. Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?

Support a Kiwi dad this Father's Day

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

Father's Day is just around the corner and for many Kiwi dads, getting a treat isn't an option due to the family's limited disposable income or being a solo dad. You can make Father's Day go further by donating a Father's Bundle to a Kiwi family for only $19.

At this time of year, we want to acknowledge all the dads in New Zealand who work hard to provide for their families - particularly the families who can't make ends meet. So, we created a bundle of goodies that these Kiwi dads will love! The bundle has some chicken, a chunky soup, an apple pie for the family to share, plus a chocolate bar (just for Dad)!
