The truck didn’t stop I’m not sure if he knew he done it or not. I really want to thank the young man on his scooter who stoped and stayed with me while I sat in the middle of the road trying to breath life back in to my baby. I hope you see this message and know you were appreciated. Also the other people who came out of their homes to offer help. I am completely shattered and heartbroken atm but I just wanted to say thankyou

Nelson City Council - sea level rise

Cally from Atawhai

Nelson City Council has obviously decided that sea level rise is less of a problem than it was, as they have removed my house inundation notice from the LIM report that they issued last November. They were using a 2m rise for all their planning. However it has dropped to 1.5m.

I rather think this has more to do in wanting to push through a $44M state of the art, "better than Te Papa", Vanity, Eco Building Project on the river front, creating lots of waste and using "mitigation" to stop the sea coming in, rather than hoping the sea will stop rising!

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,

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.

It is sold as having a 10 year life span. It’s been used for 7.5-8 years by our youngest. So still has safe life left in it. I would still be happy our one being in it, but it just made more sense to move him up into the one his brother had vacated! It’s a really good make, very heavy, bought at baby on the move for $600 plus I seem to recall. They still stock them. Think I can find the fitting instructions manual I got with it. But if not, I’m pretty sure if you are regular at baby on the move that they would be happy to help. Pick up is in Stoke. PM me if you wish to come and pick it up.

A Tsunami Warning has been issued following the M8.0 earthquake north-east of New Zealand near KERMADEC ISLANDS REGION.
People near coast from BAY OF ISLANDS to WHANGAREI including GREAT BARRIER ISLAND and from MATATA to TOLAGA BAY must MOVE IMMEDIATELY to nearest high ground, out of all tsunami evacuation zones, or as far inland as possible. Evacuate these areas even if you did not feel the earthquake. DO NOT WAIT. A damaging tsunami is possible.

People in all other areas who felt a LONG or STRONG earthquake should MOVE IMMEDIATELY to the nearest high ground, out of tsunami evacuation zones, or as far inland as possible.

This evacuation advice overrides the current COVID-19 Alert Level requirements. Do not stay at home. MOVE IMMEDIATELY. Stay 2 metres away from others if you can and if it is safe to do so.

People evacuating should walk, run or cycle if possible to reduce chance of getting stuck in traffic. Do not return until all-clear is given by Civil Defence.
