Lost dog?

Natalie from Sandringham

Hi all.
A friend went home from mine via Calgary Street about 40 mins ago (12am) and saw what she thought was a Dalmatian (with black and white spots) wandering the street alone. Posting in case someone is missing and searching for their pup!

Hi Auckland,

What do you think about the newly announced festival on Motutapu?

Island Time on Motutapu is a festival to be held over the last weekend in February and is set to feature a smorgasbord of food and drink vendors and music artists.

Festival-goers will be treated to a day long festival on either February 27 or 28 on the island. Tickets range from between $65 to $85, with a portion of ticket sales going towards to wildlife conservation.

Billy Brown, the deputy chairman of Ngāi Tai Ki Tamaki, said that it is an excellent opportunity to showcase the culture of the island and for them to educate visitors about volunteer opportunities on Motutapu.
“In the end, we want a calendar of events on the island, covering sports, arts, food – all of it," he said.

Hi there,

We are looking for a reliable flyer dropper for regular work. Each drop consists of dropping approx 150 flyers into letterboxes that allow advertising material surrounding homes of the properties that we are marketing.

Each drop should easily take less than 2 hours and we pay $40 a drop. We usually need these dropped on a Thursday or Friday, sometimes Saturday so you must be available to drop at those times. Please do not apply if you have too many commitments already on any of these days.

Pickup of flyers will be from our home in Mt Eden and you will be required to invoice us (I'll show you how if needed) once the work is complete. We will pay immediately once invoice is received.

This is a great additional income if needed and will keep you fit!

If you are interested please email mark@markstewart.co.nz with some information about yourself and when you are available to begin.

Many thanks,
Mark

Price: $40
