COVID QR Code Scanning

Diana from Napier South

I am amazed at the attitude of people regarding the scanning of the COVID QR Code. From interactions I have had with people it appears that the attitude is that now we are out of lockdown it's not necessary to scan or that the whole thing is a scam. What could be more incorrect than this. It's just as, if not more, important to keep scanning and being vigilant so that hopefully between us all - this country of 5,000,000 - we can prevent another outbreak, especially with these new variants. I consciously scan the QR Code where ever I am and if not I complete a manual enter.
Come on everyone let's keep this COVID out and get scanning.

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.

Bicycle to donate

Jane from Napier South

Hi can anyone help me. A few years ago I donated a used bike to a charity which repaired/made good and then passed on to young people who needed one. Anyway, I have another bike to donate. It is in working order but needs a good service. Can anyone suggest or remember name of organisation? Thanks in advance
