Daylight saving maintenance job

Robert from Exceed - We fix windows & doors

This month’s Tip from Exceed
Day light saving starts today (Sunday 5th) and it’s a good time to do a twice yearly maintenance check on your windows.
Go around and open and close all your windows. Open them fully to the stops and make sure they move freely and seal completely at the top and bottom. If they are stiff, a spray with any spray lube (except the red CRC) on all the pivot joints will help.

Note- if your windows are very stiff don’t force them or you could break them.

Any questions drop me an e mail at robert@exceed.co.nz

We have been classed as an essential service by the New Zealand Government and are authorised to carry out URGENT security and safety related work (broken door lock, broken window latch, and/or any other urgent work required to secure premises) during the Covid-19 Level 4 Alert lock-down period.

Stay in your bubble & I’ll stay in mine, but I’ll do my best to help you via on line means robert@exceed.co.nz

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.

We've made a new place for you to visit us: Auckland Museum at Home

The Team from Auckland Museum

While our doors are closed, you can still experience some of your favourite parts of Tāmaki Paenga Hira with us here online.

We've pulled together amazing stories, activities, videos and puzzles from our channels and archives into one Museum at Home hub, so you and your family can enjoy the Museum experience outside of our four walls.

Watch how volcanoes are made, make an exotic bird case come alive in a puzzle, read about when The Fiji Times was printed on Masi (bark-cloth) or see some never-before-seen photos of Sir Edmund Hillary and his expeditions.

We have included activities for kids, and for the young at heart, as well as long reads and videos for those who want to deep dive into life at the Museum. We'll be adding new things for you to read, watch and interact with regularly, so make sure to check back in.
