A new report on the Ports of Auckland favours a new port being built at Manukau Harbour, rather than moving the freight to Northport. The report, which says Manukau will cost less and have less environmental impact, has been criticised by Wayne Brown, whose own report recommended a move north. What do you think?
Does anyone have an idea just *what* is going on with SH1 in Springs Flat? The road surface is disintegrating after recent 'resealing'. There are truckloads of loose stone chip floating around, I bet it's cost a fair few new windscreens by now (in fact I'm wondering why the insurance industry hasn't made a hue and cry about it yet!!)
It's disgraceful. Who is responsible for fixing this mess? NZTA? WDC?
But somebody really has to DO something.
Our Red Cross Shop Whangarei (currently at 59 Bank Street) is moving to 46 John Street hopefully in the next few weeks. As we are moving we now have a number of units to sell (see photo). Prices range from $10 to around $50. We have already sold four units, first in policy and you will need to be able to take them away with you.
We are open from 9am until 4pm week days and 9am until 3pm on Saturdays. All must go next week.

I spent some time in Whangarei (CBD and Okara Centre) yesterday, and I noticed that very few businesses displayed an NZ COVID Tracer QR poster on their premises.
So here's my message to all the businesses in the Whangarei and Bream Bay area: If you're too complacent and indifferent to be a part of The Team and can't be bothered to invest about 5 to 10 minutes to request your poster here, print it and display it, then I can't be bothered spending my time and money at your business.
It's that simple. Really.
