Poll: Would you pay to use your neighbours' swimming pool?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

People rent out baches, rooms in their houses, their garages and car parking spaces, so surely hiring out swimming pools is the next logical step.

A new app lets people hire their private pools by the hour, but it hasn't come to New Zealand - yet.

Have you discussed organ donation with your family?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Once upon a time a woman loved a man so much she gave a part of herself to save him. He was dying, so she let him have a piece of her body, and it made him well. And they lived happily ever after.

Kiwis are not big on donating organs, with a bill aimed at increasing donation and transplant rates poised to become law. Stuff looks at those giving and receiving the gift of life. Have you discussed your organ donation wishes with your family?

When a stack of rusty, dust-covered film cans was deposited with audiovisual archive, Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision by the family of freelance filmmaker Thomas H Whetton, it was a surprise to find much of the more than 80-year-old film inside those cans was in great condition. Amongst the 70+ cans the Archive’s preservation team discovered never-before-seen footage of the immediate aftermath of the 1931 Napier earthquake. This presentation takes you through the meticulous work Ngā Taonga did (and are still doing) to rescue that footage and the other taonga in the Whetton collection. The collection of Thomas Henry Whetton dating from the 1920s and 1930s is showcased in Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision’s Rust + Restoration | He Waikura He Whakauka exhibition currently on in the Te Puna Foundation Gallery at the National Library.

The one I would like to sell is brand new and unopened, has a 2 year warranty and retails at 160-170 depending on retailer so buying it at 120 or near offer would be a bargain.

If you have any questions or queries please feel free to ask.

Thank you Maximus W

The Matsuri Gala is all ready to go tomorrow (11am to 2pm) at Crofton Downs Primary School. The forecast isn't looking great, however we're definitely going ahead. The weather won't beat us!

We're moving the fun around so it's indoors, or under shelter...everyone can still play heaps of games, eat delicious food, buy beautiful crafts and plants, find treasures in our book and toy rooms, enjoy local entertainment etc etc.

Sounds like a perfect outing on a (possibly) rainy day, and you don't have to worry about sunscreen 🤣
Can't wait to see you there!
