The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

MetService has issued a heat alert in Auckland, warning the temperature is forecast to be very hot for this location and precautions need to be in place.

What you need to know:
- The forecast high today is 29C.
- Metservice are advising those in Auckland to stay hydrated, seek shade, check in with vulnerable people and look after your pets & livestock.

Keeping yourself and others safe in hot weather:
Drink plenty of water - try to drink two litres per day
If you need to be in the heat, stay in the shade where possible
Avoid drinking alcohol, caffeine, and hot drinks
Eat nourishing food with a high water content (such as salads and fruit)
Dress yourself and children in light clothing, cool cottons and natural fabrics are best
Avoid extreme physical exertion
People and pets should not be left in stationary vehicles
Take a cool shower or bath
Check in on others, especially those at most risk, children, elderly or those with health issues
Spray or sprinkle water over skin or clothing, a damp cloth on the back of the neck can help

Keep up to date on the Stuff Website or read some tips on the MetService site about keeping your home cool.

Connie from Remuera

👋Hi all, I have a new batch of wooden crosses for sale. Hand painted with acrylic, each piece of artwork is unique. I was very happy to sell two crosses from my first batch last week. I have included the remaining crosses from the first batch here.

Sizes and prices are in each photo.
They will make a lovely addition to your home, as special gifts, or as a remembrance for loved ones.

Please feel free to comment or ask questions here, or email me at clamART888@gmail.com.
