Over 80% of Fire and Emergency is made up of volunteers. Without them and their support crew, we wouldn’t be who we are today.
So this National Volunteer Week, we’re thanking more than 11,500 of our volunteers for missing precious moments in their lives to protect our communities.
Make sure you say thanks as well by leaving a comment below. #cheerstoourvolunteers
Northland is now effectively an island due to Auckland's Covid-19 restrictions, with no chance to travel to or through Auckland. How do you feel about this? Has it impacted you? And what do you think about all the traffic travelling up from Auckland on Wednesday?
Hi everyone, I'm Mikaela, a Stuff Homed reporter. We're doing a story on what granny flats are like as a housing option in retirement. For those of you that are either living in a granny flat, or are the family who built/bought a granny flat to add to your property for an elder family member, we'd like to hear about why a granny flat was right for you. What was the process of getting one and learning to live together like? If you're happy to share your story and be featured in the article, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.
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.
