How are you saving water?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Whangārei District Council is asking everyone to reduce their water use by 20% to prevent restrictions, just as more Far North towns are restricted to essential water use only. Here are my tips for saving water, what are yours?

Why we're putting quality first...

Cooper's Pet Kitchen

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little … View more
Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little more expensive than some, its nutrient density makes for smaller portions with more readily absorbable nutrients.

Get more bang for your dog’s bite with 50% OFF your first order with code NEIGHBOURLY.

This also means a decrease in what comes out the other end... less 'picking up' what they’re 'putting down' at the dog park if you catch our drift.

Book - Cannibals, Crocodiles and Cassowaries

Ross from Kerikeri District

Now in his 70s, Ross Lockyer spent much of his life living and working in the forestry and logging industry in remote locations in the Pacific and Asia (Papua New Guinea, Irian Jaya/West Papua, Borneo, Sumatra, Burma and more).

With a gung-ho approach to life (and his own safety), Ross threw himself into his work and immersed himself in the local culture and communities wherever he went, learning the languages and customs that helped him fit in and do his job. He had many hair-raising adventures and close scrapes, and he encountered many amazing people wherever he went. This book is about Ross's time in pre-independence Papua New Guinea (1967-73) and captures a particular time in history when real adventure was still possible, and a young man's attitude made those adventures happen. His retelling is as fresh as if it happened yesterday and there is never a dull moment. The book includes some 60 coloured photographs from Ross's vast collection, which richly illustrate his writing.

Sample review from Brent.
A thoroughly enjoyable read written in a warm intimate kiwi style (often humorous) that really draws you in to Ross’s experiences. At times I felt like I was there with him facing the myriad of challenges, joys, hardships and fun of a kiwi bushman's life in late 60’s PNG. What’s so great about this story is that it’s equal part personal experience, PNG people & culture, environment and nature and Ross’s work life in forestry. It’s told from the kiwi bloke adventurer perspective in language that’s easily relatable - although very informative, it doesn’t come off as academic ‘study’ of PNG. On the contrary it strikes a great blend of personal recounts, observation and information based on the context of the events. This is an inspiring tale, especially in a modern age where we’re overly tempted to take the easy route and live vicariously through digital domains such as social media - this will light a spark in every youngster to get out there and LIVE!
