Hi all

Before lockdown, I started putting together a donation of old Playstation games for the Wellington Regional Hospital Children's Wards. Now that we're moving around again, I can go and collect the games from those who had a couple to donate. Just leave a comment or send me a message. And sorry if I missed it pre-lockdown.

Basically, the hospital has a couple of well-used old Playstation 2s that are crying out for a few more games.
There is specifically a real need for new or pre-loved G and PG rated PS2 games and PS4 games. They have a couple of PS4s on trolleys and one in the teen room, but the controllers have wandered.

Alternatively, there is also a real need for portable DVD players and older (PG) movies if that’s something you’d be interested in donating.

I can pick up the games from your letterbox in Upper Hutt or whatever is easiest. I work near Hutt Hospital so I could meet you out front if you would rather drop them off in Lower Hutt - whatever suits just send me a message.

Kind regards
Jared

Hello Everyone,

Now that we are in Level 1, I am back up and running with my house and pet sitting!

I am a very reliable/ tidy person and have a lot of house and pet sitting experience. My Calendar is mainly clear (for now) but I am beginning to get some bookings, so if you’re planning on escaping for a wee weekend away in NZ or for a longer length of time, feel free to message me on here or on my mobile (0226524010) and I’ll see what I can do!

This issue is packed with good reads and amazing offers from our friends and partners. We take a close look at urban farmer Freeman Farms, and visit an Auckland coastal garden that the owner waited three long decades to create as well as a Dunedin garden where they’ve grown flowers for nearly 50 years. We're still on the hunt for our Houseplant Hero, thanks to our friends at Yates and Kings Plant Barn. Nominations are now open for our 2020 Ryman Healthcare Gardener of the Year too! There’s a feature on walnut growers in NZ, highlights of new roses coming out this year and of course, details on how to get yourself $20 worth of free bulbs from NZ Bulbs.

Ok this is partly political and partly media based

Anthony from Clouston Park - Kingsley Heights

Is it just me or has Gary McCormacks (more fm)( in his later years) laugh sound more like sir Robert Muldoons?

Maybe it's just an old man who surname starts with an M thing 🤣
