The council want your opinion. Why would we spend $178 million but still end up with chlorinated water when we could achieve exemption from mandatory chlorination if we pay extra? The current rough estimate to go fully chlorine free is an extra $50-$100million. Many Napier people suffer painful skin conditions they never had before the chlorine was added. Another part of the problem we’ve had since 2017 is that chlorine oxidizes with the manganese from some bore water and, instead of being flushed annually down the gutter, the chlorine-manganese sludge comes out the kitchen tap.

  • 6.5% I want permanently chlorinated in Napier.

Is there anyone out there who would/ could use empty Jimbo's containers, as well as lots of bubble wrap?

Have you seen this amazing garden?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

They had a vision for their property, but they also had three floods in 20 years. That didn't stop them pursuing the garden of their dreams though.

New Zealand’s lush green pastures and temperate climate means our country produces some of the world’s best beef.

New Zealand is one of McDonald’s top ten beef-producing markets and it’s such a hit with the rest of the world that a significant percentage of NZ’s beef exports are to international McDonald’s markets.

We partner with many Kiwi farmers who produce our beef, including Whangara Farms which was the first beef farm outside of Europe to be invited to the McDonald’s Flagship Farmers programme.

ANZCO Foods, based in the small Taranaki town of Waitara, are responsible for making our 100% beef patties. About 90% of the staff at the Waitara plant are locals and they manage to produce around half a million patties each day.

Our quality beef cuts are minced and that’s it. No additives or fillers, just mince that is formed in patties, before they’re flash-frozen and sent to restaurants.
