Cardboard box.

Mark from Havelock North

I have a large sturdy cardboard box which I was about to destroy and send it to the cardboard cemetery. BUT, it looks so sad I wondered if someone might want to rehouse it before I give it the last rites?
It’s about twice as big as something half it’s’ size. Big enough to keep a small herd … View more
I have a large sturdy cardboard box which I was about to destroy and send it to the cardboard cemetery. BUT, it looks so sad I wondered if someone might want to rehouse it before I give it the last rites?
It’s about twice as big as something half it’s’ size. Big enough to keep a small herd of pups in for example.
Big enough for about 40 vegetarian pizza boxes.
I’m going out soon and deliver in havelock or ring me to come collect ASAP or else the box is history.

Looking to lease horse

Laura from Waimarama

Hi neighbours,
Do you own a dressage / sport horse and would like for him to get some extra love each week? I am looking for a lease horse for once or ideally twice a week in our local area. I used to ride intensively when I was younger, and this slowed down when I started a family. I was schooled… View more
Hi neighbours,
Do you own a dressage / sport horse and would like for him to get some extra love each week? I am looking for a lease horse for once or ideally twice a week in our local area. I used to ride intensively when I was younger, and this slowed down when I started a family. I was schooled in the Netherlands, where I'm from, primarily in dressage - though have done the odd jump (and loved it). I also guided horse treks and pony camp for a couple of summers when I was around 18 yrs. of age; the best summers ever. I am looking for a sweet natured horse without any serious behavioural issues, one who loves to be pampered / groomed etc. In terms of riding, I love a more forward horse and do not mind the odd cheeky buck - not so keen on slow coaches. ;-) I live halfway between Havelock North village and Waimarama beach, close to Ocean beach, so anywhere close to that would be perfect as I'd come to the site the horse is grazing now for the training & care - at least initially. I am a very responsible adult, greatly care about animals and their wellbeing and just so keen to get back in the saddle on a regular basis. If your horse has potential and you are keen on this, I could train towards doing some (local) competitions but this is not a necessity for me. If this sounds like something that could work for you, or you know someone locally who may be keen, pls let me know.

Postal system

Vincent from Flaxmere

Since Covid we hear how the postal times from overseas is taking a lot longer. We are told that it's due to a lack of available transport.

I now dispute that hypothesis.

Latest example;

I ordered a product from th US. It's a tracked item so I can see when it left, how long in transit… View more

I now dispute that hypothesis.

Latest example;

I ordered a product from th US. It's a tracked item so I can see when it left, how long in transit and when it arrives in NZ.
Well, it took 4 days from the US to NZ customs. It arrived in NZ customs on the 6th of February. It still hasn't arrived here yet.

To recap, 4 days from US to NZ. 6 days in NZ and still hasn't arrived.

Shade Sail post holes

Steve from Havelock North

Does anyone know of a company or person who could dig 3 x holes for posts for a shade sail. The holes are 500 x 500 and need to be dug to a depth of 1500 mm. Holes have been marked and dug to approx 400mm through the hard surface. Require them dug as soon as possible. Thanks Steve

Hi everyone,
We're looking into how some common claims about NZ stack up and would be interested in your thoughts on whether Aucklanders really are disliked by Kiwis in other parts of the country. If you're an Aucklander, have you ever been made to feel bad about this on your travels? If you're from elsewhere, what are your thoughts on Auckland and Aucklanders? As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it included in an article. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Cheers.
