There's only a few days left to donate to the Countdown Food Rescue Winter Appeal! So far 430 winter bundles have been donated to The Foodbank Project and we'd love to see that number increase to 500!

With chilly days and nights, winter is a really tough time for some of our most vulnerable New Zealanders. Through these colder months, The Salvation Army sees a consistently high demand for food assistance which stretches supplies and resources in their foodbanks across the country.

You can help by donating a Winter Bundle today! www.foodbank.org.nz...

To the lady who almost knocked down my daughter today outside the kindy on Kipling Street ... please drive slower in school zones!!! And keep your abusive words to yourself!!

Yes I know she was in the wrong darting across the street like that, but for goodness sake, don't shout out, "You stupid little girl, don't you dare do that again!!" Yes I have tried to instill road safety in my children, but we've all seen kids dart out without thinking. She didn't see you behind the parked cars, and you were travelling WAY too fast next to a kindy and school entrance! I apologised to you profusely and you still just shouted back. A little care would have been lovely!
Rant over.

Hi everyone,
My little 10 year-old sister and I have some freshly-picked, pesticide-free habaneros off our bush that we would like to sell to earn some pocket money.

The $1 coin is for size reference, these habaneros are on average 4x to 5x bigger than normal chillis and are really hot so you only need to cut up a small portion into food. The rest can be frozen until needed.

$1 each or 6 for $5

Please PM me or email me at haydenthemonkey@gmail.com for more info. Thanks!

Hey all,

We live in Linden Tawa and this is not our cat. This cat comes through our cat door regularly at night to get food from our cats food bowl. This evening I was in my room and came across this guy under my bed. After a bit of coaxing with food I got him out and he loves cuddles and pats but had to put him in the cage to get a picture😥

We are unsure if this is a stray or someone's cat as he is very well feed.

We've currently got someone coming around to check if he has a microchip so hopefully that will yield some results.

If this is your cat or know who's cat this might be please PM me.

Thanks
