We also chat with Dr Doug Wilson, 2021 Senior New Zealander of the Year Te Mātāpuputu o te Tau, and Andrea Gaskin, Director and Founder of charity organisation Connect the Dots, about how she’s making the art scene in Auckland accessible to seniors.

There’s advice on how to eat healthy, how to get tech savvy, and updated laws for renters and landlords.

Watties are defrauding us

Elizabeth from Maitai

Last week I purchased a tin of Watties Hawkes Bay Corn. It weighed 410 grammes and contained no added sugar or salt.


This week, I purchased what I thought was the same tin (same price!). It weighed 300 grammes and now, just to make me even more apoplectic - they've added salt.

That's a 25% price increase by stealth. Please let people know and don't let Watties cheat us like this.

Fuel prices.

Neil from Nelson South

AA membership qualifies a member to fuel discounts when purchases are made at certain businesses.
Unfortunately BP is the only fuel supplier. BP is consistently 29cents dearer than NPD.
Beware, a 10cents a litre discount with your AA card is not a good deal.😥😥😥

Hi There



I am looking at getting two single beds for my mum. Pick up is Atawhai drive. I do not have a car or license. So can not do it myself. Have rung moving companies, etc. But the price they are asking to me, seems way too high, and above what i can afford. If you have a truck/ute, or … View more
Hi There



I am looking at getting two single beds for my mum. Pick up is Atawhai drive. I do not have a car or license. So can not do it myself. Have rung moving companies, etc. But the price they are asking to me, seems way too high, and above what i can afford. If you have a truck/ute, or car and trailer that can fit two single beds on, and are willing to help (should take less than an hour to pick me up from Toi Toi area, go to Atawhai and pick the beds up, and drive back to Victory Square). Feel free to let me know how much you would be wanting to do that. I should be able to load and unload both beds myself. So it shouldn't be a problem if you are not physically able to help.


Cheers.

I have been looking after him for about 4 months now and no-one here has $1500 to help our village cat. Do you have any spare money that you could donate to help our cat? Please call the Franklyn village office on 035466039 or Louise on 0276025945 or email info@franklynvillage.co.nz, any funding can go straight into the Franklyn village account rather than anyone's personal account. Please help us to help him, whilst he is still hungry and still eats soft food and biscuits, he doesn't chew his food very much, just swallows it and I am concerned he could be in pain. I have tried to get a loan but couldn't get one.

Video Cassettes

Marilyn from The Brook

I know this is old technology but I also know there are a lot of cassette viewers still out there. Someone gave me about 6 years worth of viewing and I have almost reached the end of sorting them it's been great. I have 9 tapes 'recordable' to give away.
