Whangārei has a new MP: Dr Emily Henderson - what do you think?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Special votes have seen Labour's Dr Emily Henderson usurp National's Dr Shane Reti for the Whangārei seat - the first time Labour has won Whangārei since 1972. Henderson, a family court lawyer, says she wants to focus on the social wellbeing of Whangārei residents and backs the five major Kia Kaha Northland infrastructure projects. What do you think?

Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

Have you signed up for Neighbours Day 2021 yet? There's lots of ways you can join in...check out our website to register today:

NZTA scam

Patricia from Kamo

This morning I received an email from NZ Transport Agency <nzta.govt.nz@connect.com.fj>.
NZTA have confirmed it is a scam.
Please be wary and check that the address the email is coming from is the correct address. In this case it should be @nzta.govt.nz
If you think the email is legit but not 100% sure don't click on the link in the email but go to the organization's correct website.
