Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

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.

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.

AC Baths’ leisure pool and slides to close temporarily for maintenance

The AC Baths’ leisure pool and hydroslides will close for 10 days this month for essential maintenance to be carried out.

The pool is scheduled to close at 2pm on Sunday, March 21 and reopen on Tuesday, March 30 at 6am when the complex opens.

About a million litres of water will have to be pumped out of the leisure pool to allow the first major maintenance and closure at the AC Baths since its refurbishment in 2013.

Business operations manager Scott Attenborough said the work would encompass replacing all the tiles around the bombing island and on the entry stairs, replacing disintegrating lining in the “water overflow” areas of the pool, the repair of pipes and valves and the cleaning and inspection of areas inaccessible when the pool is full.

He said two lanes of the outdoor 25m pool would be opened for public and leisure use from 10.30am to 3.30pm and from 6pm to closing each day during the closure to allow a space for leisure pool activity while avoiding peak outdoor 25m lane pool times.

“It’s unfortunate we need to shut the leisure pool for ten days to complete this work – but the silver lining is a refreshed, functional leisure pool at the end of it where everything is in working order,” he said. “The most visible result will be at the bombing island, where tiles are in a state of disrepair.”

The maintenance was originally scheduled for mid to late 2020, but emergency work on the indoor 25m pool took precedence last year so the leisure pool maintenance was moved to March of this year. The closure timing was to avoid school holidays and have the work completed when the weather was likely to be fairly dry.

The learn-to-swim pool, indoor and outdoor 25m pools and saunas would remain open. All aqua shallow classes normally held in the leisure pool from Monday March 22 to Monday March 29 had been cancelled and would resume Wednesday, March 31 as per the timetable. There would be no change to the aqua deep classes, which would be held as normal in the indoor 25m pool.

The maintenance has been planned and budgeted for in the Long-term Plan 2018-2028.
