Sign up for The Antidote: 5 happy things to read about each day

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

We live in unusual times. It all gets a bit much some days. So we're bringing you a much-needed dose of positivity to remind you that there's inspiration, kindness and quirkiness out there too.

You can check out today's edition of The Antidote - which features a cute puppy, the UK's longest-married couple, and Stewart Island's "savage" New Year's Eve here. If you'd like the Antidote delivered direct to your inbox, sign up here.

Kirsty from Tauranga City

The awesome Tauranga Curtain Bank is currently running low on curtains. If you have any preloved curtains lying around that you don't need anymore, they can give them a new lease on life to help keep a local family with children warm this winter.

The Tauranga Curtain Bank is a volunteer organisation who line & prepare preloved curtains which are re-hung in homes of vulnerable families across the Bay of Plenty.

✅ Short curtains
✅ Long curtains
✅ Worn curtains
✅ Like-new curtains

(Not needing blinds, tracks or net curtains at this time).

Curtains donations can be dropped off at the Tauranga Curtain Bank:
The Hillier Centre
31 Gloucester Road, Mount Maunganui.

Opening hours:
Monday 8:30am–4:30pm
Tuesday 8:30am–4:30pm
Wednesday 8:30am–4:30pm
Thursday 8:30am–4:30pm
Friday 8:30am–4:30pm
Saturday Closed

Many thanks :)

Hairdresser Required

Robyne from Papamoa Beach

Recommendation for a hairdresser who does good cuts and colour at a reasonable price. My hairdresser of 7 years is in hospital for a long term. Especially interested in work from home situations. Thank you.
