It's been heartwarming to hear stories from across the North Island of people taking others into their home and sharing a cup of tea together or fixing them a meal.

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: homed@stuff.co.nz.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.

Meals on Meals change of pickup - 5 March 2021

The Team from Red Cross - Napier Service Centre

Kia Ora Everyone,

As most of your already would have felt after a number of earthquakes this morning an expanded Tsunami warning has been issued. As the Napier Red Cross Service Centre and Onekawa Red Cross Shop are in the Red Zone they have been evacuated, as a result we have had to move the Napier/Taradale Meals on Wheels pickup point, just for today Friday 5 March 2021, to the Taradale RSA.

All drivers will be contacted via phone to confirm this change.
