Poll: Should dogs be allowed in cafes?

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Dogs lolling beneath cafe tables while their owners sip lattes or glasses of pinot would have been unthinkable 30 years ago.

Now it is just the way Kiwis roll, with a raft of dog-friendly dining options available throughout the country. What do you think? Should dogs be allowed in cafes?

Let's Reunite A Woman & Her Lost Nike Trainers

Em from Karori

Hi Neighbours,

This morning on my ride in to work, I was at the traffic lights on Tinakori Rd waiting to turn off on the State Highway 1 exit ramp.

Hi Neighbours,

This morning on my ride in to work, I was at the traffic lights on Tinakori Rd waiting to turn off on the State Highway 1 exit ramp.

In front of me was a woman in a blue Ford Focus? number plate (ELF392). On the driver side roof was a pair of Nike trainers. She'd obviously forgotten about them when entering her vehicle.

Before I was able to notify her, the lights turned green and she drove on to the exit ramp.

Sadly, it was at this point that the shoes were blown off due to the higher speeds. The shoes landed about halfway down the exit ramp and I could not safely stop to retrieve them.

If anyone recognises the above number plate, please let the poor person know what's happened to her shoes.

I don't know if they can be retrieved safely (maybe a job for our heroic men in blue?).

Hope the shoes and their owner can be reunited.

Have attached a photo of where the shoes roughly landed.

Happy Halloween Art

Heidi from Northland

I have created this Halloween art work just in time for halloween!

$25 for an 8" by 10" or A4 print or $45 for an 11" by 14" or A3 print (unframed). I spent several days and nights hand drawing this art work as well as editing it - that in itself took approximately 11 hours. … View more
I have created this Halloween art work just in time for halloween!

$25 for an 8" by 10" or A4 print or $45 for an 11" by 14" or A3 print (unframed). I spent several days and nights hand drawing this art work as well as editing it - that in itself took approximately 11 hours. So I have priced this art work a little higher than my other mandalas as so much TLC was put in to it.

Feel free to follow my art progress on Instagram @Nobel.Soul or on my Facebook page: Nobel Soul Art. I aso sell a lot of my art work as PDF files so you can print them at home yourself if preferred.

This halloween print will only be available made to order but you can purchase PDF files of other work at: Etsy.com/shop/NobelSoulArt

Have a safe and happy halloween everyone!

Wee-hoo bike trailer. Used, but solid and nowhere near used up! Comes with attachment bits for 2 bikes to easily swap. Easy access in Wadestown. Thinking $250-260 but will consider reasonable offers.

Very stable, tracks and turns well. Suitable for ages 2-9 according to the website. Adjustable seat position. Child sits (buckled in) and can pedal if they are big enough and of age.

We found the kids liked it more than being closed up in a trailer as they could participate in the biking. Pic is actual photo of ours in use in Hutt River Trail. Capable on path, pavement, gravel, rock (To lighthouse, Hutt river trail, you name it, we even did Otago trail with it)

After 20 pleasurable years, the owners of The Peppertree are now ready to move on. They want a sale and have instructed us to present all offers.

Beginning life as a renowned restaurant and currently operating very successfully as boutique accommodation, The Peppertree works very well as a function centre and would also make a superb cellar door. Located with State Highway frontage close to Blenheim and situated on the soon to open Picton to Kaikoura cycleway, it is ideally positioned to cash in on Marlborough’s growing tourism industry.

Each of the five beautifully appointed suites has been subtly themed, providing individual charm as well as comfort. The heart of the home is a spacious, recently renovated farmhouse kitchen enjoying garden and orchard views. A large wood burner with wetback and solar heats the water for a series of radiators around the house, ensuring warmth year-round.

Encompassing four hectares and featuring organically managed vineyard and gardens, fruit trees, berry patches, olives and grazing for sheep, cattle, and horses, The Peppertree is close to being self-sufficient. The extra land also offers an opportunity for future expansion and development.

The rateable value for land and improvements is $1,520,000.
All offers requested to be received by 4 pm Wednesday 27 November 2019.

For more information or an appointment to view, please contact Michal or Tim.
