Consumer NZ answer a query about an electricity retailer:

Annie Bannister from Utilities Disputes

"I recently received a shocking letter from my electricity retailer, stating I owed a small fortune. The letter says that in 2013 my smart meter glitched out and stopped transmitting readings. My power company has sent me an invoice for more than $10,000 for unpaid electricity charges. What are my rights?"

Is this the best way to spend a birthday?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

How sweet is Joan Hodgins? The Kāpiti woman recently celebrated her 90th birthday by treating 34 children to a day of adventure - which included Scenic flights, a trip to Wellington Zoo and a ride on a double-decker "party bus". It was a day that rewarded children who had overcome tough times, Hodgins said.

"I thought that instead of having a lavish birthday party I could do something for children with difficulties. After all, if you're fortunate, isn't it nice to give to someone else?" To read more about Joan's story, click here.
