Non-delivery of Sun-Live freebie newspaper.

I live in Dickson Road Papamoa Beach, and even before the Covid-19 lock-down I have noticed that the Friday afternoon delivery of the Tauranga weekly news paper Sun-Live is no longer delivered to my letter box. I wonder how widespread this is occurring, and why it is occurring.



There is an ethical issue attached to this problem: local advertisers who are charged considerable amounts to place advertisements in this paper will not have potential customers able to see their adverts. So the advertisers miss out on business, locals miss out on hearing what services and goods are available, but the paper still keeps its advertising revenue flowing in.



If the reason is that there are no delivery girls, boy, or retirees available to actual make the deliveries, then maybe Sun-Live could up the amount they offer to pay these potential deliverers.

The Resene Upcycling Awards are coming back this month, the third year in a row! Watch this space and get prepared for the announcement; there are great prizes up for grabs.

Upcycling is the term used for taking a preloved item and transforming it - whether it's for a new purpose altogether, or just to give it an ‘extreme makeover'. Consider using the school holidays to get Upcycling with the smaller members of your household - or use the next rainy day to drag out the paint and your creativity!

In the meantime, check out some of the creative cookies from last year.
