Hi, I'm a student completing my Master's degree at The University of Waikato. Due to the lockdown and restrictions, I had to change my project entirely to ensure that I'd be able to complete the project and submit my thesis in Feb 2021.

My project is exploring attitudes towards travel before and after the COVID-19 restrictions. I need people currently in New Zealand or Australian who hold a valid restricted or full licence. The questionnaire takes roughly 15-25 minutes and I really appreciate everyone who participates :)

Thanks in advance, Francene Thomas.

Congratulations to Bill Hill - winner of the 2020 Long Service Award!
In 1956 Bill had a serious accident and was so grateful for the assistance of The Order of St John he decided he would give back to the organisation. He joined in 1977 as a volunteer, and for 42 years has undertaken many roles, the latest being Health Shuttle Driver. Bill loves all people, regardless of age, ethnicity, etc and always treats everyone with respect, caring and friendliness. It is safe to say that any debt Bill felt he owed to St John has been well and truly paid back.
Congratulations Bill! and thanks to Seasons Magazine who have provided Bill's prize.

How Curtain Linings Work

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean Hamilton

During winter it is easy to lose heat, and in summer it is easy to overheat a home if windows are not appropriately covered. Lining is a cost-effective addition to help protect your curtain fabric, while providing some added insulation for the home, reducing window heat loss by 40-60% when closed. Working all year round, lined drapery is an important tool in creating a thermal insulation barrier. Lined curtains have an added lining layer on the back of the curtain which can be attached to the curtain or can be hung on a separate track behind the curtain.


Linings help your window furnishings last longer: With a good quality lining, your chosen curtain fabric is shielded from the harsh UV rays of the sun, preventing your fabric from fading.


Linings provide added privacy: A lot of fabrics are only somewhat private, especially at night. Adding a lining to your window furnishings will increase the opacity of the treatment, ensuring complete privacy.


Linings provide increased insulation: Insulated linings trap air in and between the layers of fabric, preventing the heat in your homes escaping out the windows, and offering significant savings on your energy bill.


Linings can provide light control: Ideal for bedrooms and media rooms, block-out linings allows you to block light coming through a window and keep your rooms dark in the middle of the day.

Linings improve the appearance of window furnishings: The colours of your chosen fabric can appear richer when a lining is placed behind them. Without a lining, sunlight coming through a fabric can make the colours appear washed out during the day.



Call us or your local Curtain makers to discuss adding a lining to your current curtains.
