Grooves up or down? Decking debate settled

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

The great kiwi deck, every home should have one. But there's a decking debate raging in DIY and Reno circles: Should the grooves go up or down?
We think we've settled the argument here.

The very good news is ....Book Sale Sunday !!

Karen from Welcome Bay

While we are now still in Covid Level 2, the Tauranga Rotary Book Sale at Harvard Way Mount Maunganui cannot be open Friday 5th or Saturday 6th March.
But since we will drop to Level 1, we will definitely be open on Sunday 7th March from 9 am until 5 pm, and also the following weekend, Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th from 9am until 5pm.

What a great opportunity to come and restock your bookshelves, while also helping worthwhile causes in your local community! If you have been here before, you will know it is well worth a visit, because we have 1000s upon 1000s of books. It is really easy to find your favourites since the nonfiction is sorted by topic and the fiction is sorted by author!! We also have jigsaws, and games, cds and dvds and art.

Hope to see you there!
If necessary, please contact Ann Pritchard on 07 543 5350.

Keep it up Aotearoa! 💕

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

It's been heartwarming to hear stories from across the North Island of people taking others into their home and sharing a cup of tea together or fixing them a meal.
