Good morning everyone.

I have an old friend who’s turntable has stopped working and is definitely very dead!

He loves his huge record collection and lives alone now his 99 year old Dad died a couple of months ago.

I tried to get his unit fixed and the lockdown caught us out plus they confirmed it was shot.

He lives alone and I’m asking if anyone has an old turntable they could give him ?

Just a thought and a really special treat for this particular man.

Please help if you can , I can arrange courier collection.

Thanks Swanson / Ranui neighbours .., lets try and make this guys day .

They block up the pipes, which then need fixing immediately. When workers have to leave home to fix blocked pipes, they’re at risk of COVID-19. That puts everyone else in their bubble at risk as well.

Do your bit for workers and their whānau, and put your wet wipes in the bin.

Just remember: keep it PG, refrain from putting any songs in the mix that may cause offence to your Neighbours. You can find the playlist here.
