Is New Regent St really NZ's most beautiful street?

Hi everyone,
We're looking into how some common claims about NZ stack up and would be interested in your thoughts on whether New Regent Street in Christchurch deserves its title of 'NZ's most beautiful street'. Do you think it is the best-looking street in the country? Or is there another street you think is more beautiful? Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you do not want it included in an article. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Pet thorough bred Kunekune piglets

Our 5 much loved Kunekune piglets from the Champion Makino herd are now ready to be rehomed as pets. Born on 05.05.2021 they will be ready from the 30th June onwards.
We are looking for good homes where they will continue to receive love. Because they are very social, they will need to go as a pair or where there are already other Kunekunes- unless they come to live with you in your house with access to the outside. 🐖😃Personally, I wouldn't recommend it, unless you don't mind muddy pig trotters in your house and needing to have your food out of reach at all times.

If you haven't got time for a dog but would love to have a pet, get Kunekunes!! All our ones have so many traits associated with dogs, they come up to greet you, letting you know they want a scratch, attention or some food and they are highly trainable because of being regarded more intelligent than dogs. They have a healthy dose of confidence though, like most pigs. Our piglets are used to chickens and a dog already.

Unlike other pigs, Kunekunes pigs eat grass happily for 90 % of their food. Most Kunekunes do not root with their snouts. But I couldn't guarantee that.
Are they miniature? No, not in what most people understand under it. They are still classed as miniature Kunekunes because the official definition is being shorter than 49 cm ( they are roughly becoming adult knee height).

Black and White piglet = male
Mostly black piglet. = Female
Pink piglet. = Female
Ginger- black dots. =Female
Ginger black dots. = Male

$120 for one and $200 for a pair.

An ideal pair is a neutered boar piglet and female piglet because a boar and a sow get on extremely well usually. If you do want to breed at some stage, we can help you finding a suitable boar on loan.

Because we know getting new pets is always an unknown, we will take them back of it doesn't work out.

If you are interested, you can view the piglets in Ngaere with the parents.

Another Unnecessary closure

What was NOT printed in the newspaper was that the HO of AA are making 4 staff redundant. Closing the current office because they claim the building is not fit for purpose. Hold on - they have used the building since 1950's. Something clearly is wrong here. How many more corporate businesses are going to carry out the same thing and reduce country towns to ghost towns. Banks make huge profits but dont give a s--- about staff or customers. The Council staff endeavour to attract new business and end up getting a church owned business which will be registered as a non profit organisation so pay NO TAX. People we have to speak up loudly and stop the rot.

NZTA licence renewal scam circulating

A new email scam impersonating the NZTA is being sent around telling vehicle owners their licences are due.

The email directs the recipient to renew the funds through clicking a 'Renew Now' button at the bottom corner of the email. It then takes the individual to fake website that gets them to fill in personal details.

CERT NZ, the government authority responsible for cyber security said in a tweet, that anyone who receives this email should report it directly to Waka Kotahi (NZTA).

How to spot a phishing scam:
- NZTA will only send an email through if an individual has contacted them first.
- Email addresses will always end in @nzta.govt.nz, @enews.nzta.govt.nz or @reply.nzta.govt.nz.
- The email may be missing specific details that the NZTA will have on file: such as your plate number, the date your vehicle license is due and vehicle make and model.
- Hover over buttons and links to see if the pop-up will take you to a genuine government (.govt.nz) website

Neighbourly will update this message as further information comes to hand.
