Car battery went kaput last night, mechanic recommendations?

Sarah from Hataitai

Good afternoon, Helpful Neighbours! I am in need of a mechanic recommendation to replace a car battery on our 2006 Mazda Premacy. Our car battery died in dramatic fashion last night while I was driving; I barely had time to pull over before the car completely shut down. I was able to temporarily revive it by begging a friend to come out and jump it for me (thankfully I never travel without cables!). The alternator appears to charge the battery, but I'm pretty sure the battery needs to be replaced. Thanks so much for your help!

Social climbers - the comedy - is touring NZ!

Roger Halls Sparkling Comedy Social Climbers

What do you call six women stranded on a mountain in the rain: ridiculous! Or you could call them social climbers … but just not to their faces! Once at the hut, not only do they unload their packs full of food, wine, and a souvenir rock; their hang-ups get unloaded as well.

Torrential rain and a flooded bridge keep them stranded for three days. What they get up to, to help pass the time, raises a few eyebrows and will have you laughing, tearing up and applauding enthusiastically as they bare all.

Of course, it’s not just souls that are exposed, there’s a little nudity, a cracking thunderstorm, explosions, screaming bloody murder, ghostly stories, a birthday celebration, a séance, a drunken party, confessions, meltdowns and revelations that will keep you and your friends entertained throughout.

Perfectly timed for your own social group’s ascent into summer, don’t miss this hilarious play when it comes to a town near you in November.
