Do you ever get your neighbours' recycling or rubbish down your driveway?

The multitude of cats in the neighbourhood also sometimes scratch open the rubbish bags and scatter the contents. How much do you hate recycling/rubbish day?

Are you looking for a fun, family activity this summer?

Gather your whanau and head to Devonport for the Staycation Scavenger Hunt!

Up until 31 March, New Zealand Red Cross are running a shop-window scavenger hunt on Victoria Road, Devonport for families to enjoy!

The scavenger hunt is based on the not-so-true story of Kanoa the clumsy Kākāpō, who has lost 10 holiday items in 10 different shop windows. Kanoa needs your help to find her missing items so she can enjoy her kiwi summer staycation to Devonport! Find all 10 and you can enter the prize draw to win some amazing prizes too!

Purchase your scavenger hunt map for $4 from Devonport library or from the New Zealand Red Cross website - 100% of the proceeds of the shop-window scavenger Hunt will go to New Zealand Red Cross!

A perfect activity for the school holidays or a sunny Saturday afternoon!

Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.
