What are your thoughts on new rules for Ninety Mile Beach/Te Oneroa-a-Tōhe?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

The iconic Ninety Mile Beach/Te Oneroa-a-Tōhe is about to come under a new beach management plan, which includes rules to help turn the tide on damage and neglect. It includes news speed limits on the beach of 60kmh, reducing to 30kmh within 200m of entrances. What do you think?

Have you visited Marsden Cross?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Rangihoua Heritage Park is about 2 hours from Whangārei and includes Marsden Cross. It is unofficially the birthplace of the nation after hosting the first Christian service in 1814, which started the first European settlement. Have you been to Rangihoua Heritage Park and taken the walk down to Marsden Cross? What do you think of it?

Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? 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.
