Have you visited Marsden Cross?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Rangihoua Heritage Park is about 2 hours from Whangārei and includes Marsden Cross. It is unofficially the birthplace of the nation after hosting the first Christian service in 1814, which started the first European settlement. Have you been to Rangihoua Heritage Park and taken the walk down to Marsden Cross? What do you think of it?

Buying by tender: Did you write a letter?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi folks,
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: homed@stuff.co.nz.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.

Ralph Darcy from Central Whangarei

Makes you wonder what all the fuss is about when today we get siren warnings with a 8.0 earthquake near the Kermadec island Raoul and yesterday in the same area there was a 8.1 and no warning from Civil Defence? Can anyone explain why the difference response from CD.
