Father's Day is just around the corner and for many Kiwi dads, getting a treat isn't an option due to the family's limited disposable income or being a solo dad. You can make Father's Day go further by donating a Father's Bundle to a Kiwi family for only $19.
At this time of year, we want to acknowledge all the dads in New Zealand who work hard to provide for their families - particularly the families who can't make ends meet. So, we created a bundle of goodies that these Kiwi dads will love! The bundle has some chicken, a chunky soup, an apple pie for the family to share, plus a chocolate bar (just for Dad)!
Calling all cat lovers to the Hutt Feline Cat show at Expressions, 836 Ferguson Drive, Upper Hutt. From 10am to 3:30 pm, Saturday 17th August.
Don't forget to check out the Outpawed stall and support them as kitten season is fast approaching.
Tickets to be purchased on the day: Adults $4.00 Children $2.00
Hi neighbours - Porirua City's new bilingual signs have cost nearly $30,000 in consultant and designer's fees.
Featuring Te Reo Māori and English, the signs cost $27,360 to design, which included work by cultural advisors and bilingual experts.
Wendy Walker, Porirua City Council Chief Executive, says that "by bringing Māori language into our everyday lives, we help those less familiar with it gain confidence, as well as recognising those who already speak Te Reo."
What do you think about this? Do you think the bilingual signage is a worthwhile investment? Read more here
