If this cold snap is getting to you but you're worried about the cost of cranking up your heating, don't despair.

We asked the energy experts to breakdown the running costs of all our favourite winter warmers, so you can work out how to get the best heating bang for your buck.

And while it's no shock that firing up a 2Kw electric heater doesn't come cheap, the price of a warm bed for a toasty night's sleep might surprise you. Check out the full rundown, including electric blankets, hot showers, heated towel rails and more, here.

We learnt that this is connecting with people face to face expressing information, meaning and feelings. It was an engaging evening - members played games and activities including negotiating with each to bargain for possession of the rare Ugli oranges. It was followed up by a master class of artwork, drawing mystery pictures before wrapping up with a game of Spyfall where we had to figure out who the spy was in the group. 😂 #ToastmastersNZ #NewtownTM

Join us at our next club meeting on 14 August - and check out our website for future meeting dates!
