Collect a bag of rubbish - and you could win prizes!


Too often we think that picking up litter is someone else’s job - but collecting rubbish is such a simple way we can help our community, the environment and our own health and wellbeing.

This is why Resene is proud to sponsor the “Walk & Collect Weekend” on December 7 and 8. Take a walk over the weekend and collect a bag of rubbish in your community - it's simple but with a collective effort can make a big difference.

It's free to participate and there are prizes to be won - including a $200 Resene Gift Card! Simply head to their event page and register your interest.

Saving a bird

Glen from Central Whangarei

Just a nice story yesterday I was putting my car away into my double garage, it was hot in the garage I reversed in got out of the car and saw a baby thrush at the rear window of the garage.

So started a ten-minute struggle to try to save the thrush as it flies from window to window, I talked to it good boy I was saying. after ten minutes it flew straight at me.

It landed on my shoulder I walked or hobbled outside the bird stayed on my shoulder I picked it off my shoulder gave it a bowl of water. It drank water and after another ten minutes, it flew off. So good😁

What did you do with your Christmas tree?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

The big cats at Kamo Wildlife Sanctuary have been rubbing against, chewing up and lying on old Christmas trees donated to the park. Is there a better way to use Christmas trees after the big day? What did you do with your Christmas tree?
