Bringing generations together

Cambridge mum Rebecca Broadbent regularly takes groups of parents and preschool children to visit local rest homes.

Not only is this a salve for loneliness, it sparks interaction, communication and mobility in residents, says Tracy Fairhall, activities coordinator for Raeburn Lifecare in Cambridge.

For Rebecca, it is simply a joy to spread joy. She remembers the first rest home visit she arranged. “At one point I looked over at a lovely resident who was 100 and he was kind of shaking and I was worried. I got closer and saw that he was shaking with laughter because my boys were having a paper plane competition, throwing paper planes from one end of the lounge to the other. It was beautiful.”

Wireless keyboard and mouse with plastic protection

Kanuka from Papamoa Beach

This is a brand new, slimline wireless keyboard and mouse. I thought it was like a Mac keyboard but though it works with both Mac and Windows computers, it feels more like a Windows keyboard. Therefore surplus to requirements.

This is a brand new, slimline wireless keyboard and mouse. I thought it was like a Mac keyboard but though it works with both Mac and Windows computers, it feels more like a Windows keyboard. Therefore surplus to requirements.

The little USB receiver fits inside the mouse. The mouse takes one AAA battery and the keyboard takes 2 AAA batteries (not supplied).

Evenings and weekends are good times to ask questions if you want quick answers, or if you want to have a look.

Pak'n'Save shopping frustrations

Adrian from Papamoa Beach

1. Have any other of you Neighbourly people been frustrated , like I have about your shopping experience at Papamoa Branch of Pak’n’Save.

1. Have any other of you Neighbourly people been frustrated , like I have about your shopping experience at Papamoa Branch of Pak’n’Save.


2. I had previously stopped bothering to make those “feedback” invitations we are given at check-outs there because nothing ever seemed to change when I have commented on the unavailability of certain items. However because of my list of items I cannot get from this store has now risen to five, I recently sent in another moan. For the first time I have had a response, but sadly every item I said they did not stock, they reckon was because it was not selling. I find this hard to believe. I am therefore asking other Neighbours, if you too have to visit other supermarket outlets to get these items, I invite you also to ask to Pak’n Save about them maybe they might start to stock to few or all the following.



4. Uncle Bens Boil In The Bag Long Grain Rice 500 g. This is a cardboard packet that holds 4 X 125 g plastic bags of rice.



5. WW Lychee in Syrup 560 g. A helpful shelf stacker said “No we do not stock it.” He did not know why. Coundown had it at only $2.50 a tin so it is not an expensive luxury item.



6. Anchor Zero Lactose Trim 1 litre (Green Top). Both my next door neighbour and myself have asked about this not being available any more at Papamoa Pak’n’Save. It was stocked till a couple of months ago. When I waited to speak to the milk area manager he said it was a product that was not selling. I find this hard to believe. It is usually available at Countdown and on the occasions it is not there and I have asked I am told it is so in demand there that it sells out very quickly.



7. Vitasoy Milk So Lyte Uht. This is yet another product that I have asked why it is not stocked at the Papamoa store. They have the “Regular” but not the “Lite”. .



8. John West Pink Salmon 210 g (No Salt Added). There was plenty of other tins of John West, but none that said “no salt added”.



9. We do almost all our grocery shopping at your store , except for the above items which we have to buy on a regular basis.



10. So if you have to shift your car to go to another (usually more expensive) supermarket to get these or other missing items, can I recommend you tell this outlet, and maybe we can get them stocked again, as they have been in the past.
