Art Deco and Knitting

Denise from Marewa

Unsurprisingly, the Winter Art Deco festival in July has been cancelled.

Even if you don't have to isolate yourself, there may come a stage when you WANT to. Christine at Wool N Things in Onekawa is offering a delivery service for knitting items and the other items she sells.

If you've never knitted, crocheted or cross-stitched, there are oodles of videos on how to do these crafts on YouTube. Of course, now that it's getting colder, we need to take more care of ourselves and a scarf or beanie is an essential.

Napier's War Memorial was gifted by public donations for one specific purpose. Now to be called V

Bruce from Napier South

"The council is working on design concepts for the reinstatement of the War Memorial features, with the intention of having them in place by Anzac Day next year."
Will this include the memorial name plaques and eternal flame? The relatives of those who volunteered and were conscripted will not be appeased by a mere web site linked to other NCC business interests.
"lest we forget" or better to get on with business and forget the past with a new name. Utter shame on the previous Dalton/Jack administration who thankfully are fast receding into being nothing but a bad memory.
Hopefully the new council and Mayor can do better and not be reviled like the past administration.

Poll: What do you think of CCTV on private homes?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.
I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?
If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
