Poll: How do you fold your towels?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, is there a right way to fold towels? It seems it's a topic lots of people have strong opinions about.

The most popular options are the quick-and-easy triple fold, or folding the outer edges towards the centre before folding in thirds, to create a plusher, more spa-like look. … View more

The most popular options are the quick-and-easy triple fold, or folding the outer edges towards the centre before folding in thirds, to create a plusher, more spa-like look. But what do you do? And who knew folding towels could be so controversial?

2020 Water tightness project
This year we have been working towards a water tightness project to repair a large section of internal guttering, replacing split/cracked parts, down pipes and small sections of fascia. There are sections of the roof that need repair but the original iron roof is still going strong! We believe the iron cladding made its way to NZ onboard a ship from the UK over 100 years ago!

Our heritage listed cottage provides a beautiful, character filled environment for learning. Like all buildings of this age it needs constant maintenance and attention which is mainly undertaken by the parent body during quarterly working bees. Larger maintenance and repairs projects need the professionals and need focused fundraising and support.

We are now working very hard to try and raise funds through donations, grants and fundraising activity to meet our goal of $30,000.

Having successfully secured a $10,000 grant from the Wellington City Council's Built Heritage Fund (woohoo!) we now need your help to raise the remaining amount.

Our goal of undertaking the work ahead of winter has been delayed due to Covid-19, and has also meant a $10,000k drop in revenue (we were unable to secure the wage subsidy, but kept paying all our teachers).

Please consider donating via our givealittle page, every little bit helps, no donation is too small!

From the teaching team and local whanau we thank you for your support! <3

Dear Neighbours,


My name is Fei. I have been running Gaia Holistic Counselling in Hataitai since 2017. I believe everyone is unique, and everyone has their own innate strength to heal and to advance. As a holistic counselor, I see myself as a gate-keeper who assists clients in their healing journeys. I offer a wide range of therapy and healing approaches, e.g. psychotherapy, meditation and yoga, energy healing, even dancing and handcrafting workshops. The reason of embracing these diverse approaches is because everyone has different experiences and healing needs, and there shouldn't be a limit to healing modalities.


If this sounds right; if you are looking for someone to talk to, please contact me at 0211404448, trf615@gmail.com



Stay warm and cosy in the deep winter.
