Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)

A wonderful opportunity is waiting for the right volunteers who are willing to offer a little of their heart to the young people of Marfell.

“The Rising Achievers programme is about community working together to raise achievement of the whole child in a mana enhancing environment.”

Each Marfell Community School students who is enrolled in this special afterschool programme is referred for support in academic and social areas of their wellbeing; alongside being given the opportunity to take part in fun activities and learn new skills.

Whilst in the program they become accustom to an afternoon snack, homework then out to play routine. This routine helps set a pattern to continue with once they move into their Intermediate education and are required to meet the expected national standard.

The programme runs every weekday during the school terms and the volunteers would need to be at the Marfell Community School from approximately 2.30pm until 4.40pm. As with all volunteer roles if you can help out for one day or all five it would be a great help. Every hour you put in makes a difference and rosters will be arranged to suit your availability.

For all who volunteer to help this great programme there will be training given and ongoing support to enable you to offer your time to these young people.

If you think you have the skills required and the time to share with these lovely young people or if you would just like more information contact Wendy at Volunteering New Plymouth on 06 758 8986, email: admin@volunteeringnewplymouth.nz or Ph/Txt 022 571 4228 to have a conversation about options and perhaps arrange a chat with one of the Trust members who is involved.

It is in the Hurdon area of New Plymouth and on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10.30am till 3pm you will find small groups gathered enjoying programmes that are organized by their lovely co-ordinators; with input from the attendees. Each day there can be a different group of attendees and their ages vary from the very young early sixties and range up to the late nineties. They are a great mix of older folk who enjoy being part of a very welcoming centre.

Volunteers are vital to the service and the Centre is putting out an invitation, to people who are interested in enjoying the company of some of our Communities' treasures, to come along and assist with the activities on these days. As well as being willing to be involved with the planned activities you would assist with the serving of morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea and the clean up after each activity. Volunteer hours are from 10 am to 3.30pm but can be flexible to suit the time volunteers have available.

If you have a few hours available on one or more of the days, the staff will welcome your help, it can be for a few hours one day a week or fortnight if that is what you have available or more you have more to give. Our volunteers need to be reliable and have a sense of humour that matches the day centre attendees.

If this sounds like the opportunity that you have been waiting for then call Wendy at Volunteering New Plymouth on 06 758 8986; Ph/Text 022 571 4228 or email admin@volunteeringnewplymouth.nz.
