New Speaker Just Announced!!!!

The Team from Women of Influence

We are so excited to welcome Jen Scoular, Chief Executive of New Zealand Avocado.

Jen has been called the most enthusiastic CEO in New Zealand, thanks to her passion and drives to promote avocados, the industry, and the country. She has successfully raised both the profile and value of the industry and continues to advocate for growers in the primary industries.

Jen joined NZ Avocado after a four-year diplomatic posting heading the New Zealand Consulate in Hamburg, Germany. She was charged with driving commercial success for New Zealand exporters in Germany, Northern, and Eastern Europe, Russia and Turkey.

Before this, she spent seven years with Zespri, most latterly as Group Treasurer. In London, she became director of Barclays Capital following early roles with Unilever and IBM. These days, she and her family are happy to call Tauranga home.

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.

Glass sorting at the kerb is back!

Communications from Tauranga City Council

Throughout the Covid-19 response, we’ve been able to continue collecting and recycling glass. However hand-sorting wasn’t possible. Now that it’s safe again, our team can go back to hand-sorting glass into different colours at the kerb.

To be able to recycle as much glass as possible it's super important that you:
• Rinse your bottles and jars and remove lids
• Recycle glass bottles and jars used for food and drink only
• Don’t overfill your crate or add broken glass
• Only use the official blue crates provided
• And put your crate out at 7.30 on your collection day

For more information on glass recycling, visit www.tauranga.govt.nz...
