The new highly-contagious variation of Covid: close our borders?

Jean from Tahunanui

What do you think about having our New Zealand borders CLOSED to all, while this new variation of Covid is racing around the world. At least until we all get vaccinated, which could well be months and months away...?

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.

Guillotine for paper cutting wanted

Karin from Upper Moutere

Hi,
our pottery club is looking for a so called guillotine to cut A4 sheets of paper. Ideally it should cut up to 10 sheets but less is fine, too. And hopefully it's not too blunt...
But anything will be considered. It must fit A4 though. Am happy to pay a fair price!
Thanks in advance.
