Have your say on our draft Naming Policy. Among other changes, we’re proposing to add some provisions in the policy to encourage locally significant Māori names for streets, reserves, community facilities and other public places in Tauranga. If you participated in our survey earlier this year, your feedback has been taken into account but we’re now keen to get your thoughts on the full content and wording of the draft policy. Have your say!
This is one of our favourites that we've seen online! Get the kids together to help you make a set of miniature winter wonderland ornaments for the Christmas day table or round the house.
• A few small, clear jars (available at Spotlight)• White Deco sand (available at Spotlight) mixed with glitter, or without!
• Sprigs of Christmas tree branches or tinsel (which you can cut from an old tree, if you have one)
• Artificial moss (also available at Spotlight!)
• White Christmas figurines or old decorations (such as reindeer, Santa and elves)
• Cover the bottom of your base or bowl with moss.• Sprinkle some of the sand over the moss, so that it mixes together and looks like a snow-covered forest floor.
• Position a figurine—or multiple figurines if your vase is larger—on top of the moss and sand.
• Cut some of the bristles from the Christmas tree branches at the base, and dig a few into the moss and sand, so that they stand up.
• Place your Winters-in-a-bottle around your outdoor area and table.
