FREE toys for boys (or girls)

Fiona from Henderson

I have quite a few trucks and other vehicles (cars, trains etc ...) to give away to a little boy who doesn't have a great deal of toys.
They have been loved and played with so many times, but they still have so much life in them. Too good to throw away.

I have quite a few trucks and other vehicles (cars, trains etc ...) to give away to a little boy who doesn't have a great deal of toys.
They have been loved and played with so many times, but they still have so much life in them. Too good to throw away.
I also have a couple of stuffed toys, one very large one and one cute dragon, there is also a duck puppet.
I may also find a few figurines to throw into the mix.
Please, they really need to go to someone who has a little boy or 2 who really doesn't have many toys.

We were just there and loading and unloading stuff. Just gone inside and there was some gap when phone was stolen from black Van. Phone is locked, Find my Phone enabled, Location tracked, IMEI is blocked not so it is quite hard to use. Phone is showing offline since then and was switched off out on street. I had lots of photos on the phone. It was probably someone local walking. I have cctv footage and some pictures but not posting here in hope to get it back. If the phone is returned in the Letterbox then will provide $50 voucher in the letterbox in following days and will also withdraw the police file. Just adding some face masked photos.

Fireworks are a ton of fun but carry real risks that need to be taken seriously. If you plan on lighting some here's some tips to keep everyone in your community safe and happy.

❌ 1. Never light fireworks in dry or windy conditions.

🔥 2. Only use fireworks in wide open areas, away from flammable items such as trees, grasses, gas tanks, and wood.

💦 3. Keep a bucket of water or hose nearby.

👧 4. Children should never light fireworks themselves and need to be supervised closely at all times.

🧰 5. Keep all unlit fireworks in a secure bag or container away from any source of fire until they are ready to be used.

📞 6. Be considerate and let neighbours know if you're planning to set off fireworks. Aim to finish at a reasonable time.

🐱 7. Keep pets comfortable and secure inside. The loud booms and flashing lights can easily scare them off.

🐮 8. Avoid lighting off fireworks around farm animals and be aware of any newborns or elderly neighbours who may also be affected. If possible, change locations to somewhere that minimises any disturbances.

🌿 9. Be a tidy Kiwi and let's work together to keep New Zealand beautiful! Clean up any any rubbish and leave your spot better than you found it.

Should council agency staff get big pay bonuses ? - Reply

Hi Neighbours, Is working for a council agency public service, or should it involve pay bonuses for doing a job well done. Panuku Development has paid $451,000 to 38 of its staff, angering the mayor Phil Goff. Are bonuses appropriate ?

My own response is this. That is a huge lot of money to be giving as bonuses to this particular council agency. Look, at any work place, there should be some work incentive for working so many work hours at any job or workplace for the employees or the job at general I understand that. I used to work at Spotlight, I used to get a christmas bonus with my pay once every year. This was with all Spotlight stores in NZ and in Australia. This was our little perk once every year we employees and the employers get towards December. I don't know what other stores get here in NZ, but I am sure everyone would get the same, not sure though.

Instead of taking bonuses away from work places or any agencies, look at what the MP's at Wellington earn and see if what they earn is actually much more than what the average worker is earning in the way of bonuses.

What do others think?
