Have you ever missed the last ferry from an island in the Hauraki Gulf?

Kendall Hutt Reporter from Rodney Times

Hi neighbours. Have you ever missed the last ferry from an island in the Hauraki Gulf? How did you get back to the mainland - did the ferry come back, did the police boat or Coastguard get you, or did you have to pay for a water taxi? Fullers has said it has made less than 10 unscheduled sailings in the last three years to Rangitoto. If you have a tale to tell, you can contact me at kendall.hutt@stuff.co.nz. Thanks.

MBIE Recalls booster seat due to safety concerns

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

A booster seat has been recalled due to the chance of malfunctioning in the event of a crash.

The booster seat, the Diono Cambria 2, has been recalled by MBIE as the headrest could crack or break in a collission. The recall notice warns that the headrest may detach, causing serious injury to an infant or child.

Here's what you need to know:
- Units affected are those manufactured between September 2020 and November 2020.
- The first six digits of the serial number for the recalled range is: 648735.
- Only use the affected Diono seat as a backless booster seat until replacement units are available.
- Replacement headrests will be available in the next month.

Affected product owners can find out more about the recall on the Diono Website or get in touch with them on 0800 34 66 66.
