We would like to thank all our loyal customers from the past 17 years and the great team we have worked with past and present on the Kapiti Coast and Horowhenua. Gemmal will continue his fabulous work with the new owner, Ian. What are we up to? Well, we have decided to follow the advice in the photo. You will now see Roger buzzing around in the Cookie Time van which he is very excited about. He hopefully will get to see some of you when he visits retail stores from Porirua through to Otaki. Bronwyn has been studying for the past two years and has set up a new mind-body education business called Creative4life. You can check out her new course 'Wellness through Creativity" at www.creative4life.co.nz... and follow her on Facebook: www.facebook.com.... Look out for her free 'Worry Less Live More - Setting Your Wellness Compass for 2022' online 5 day challenge starting in February. Thank you so much again, Roger and Bronwyn

Simon Woolf visited the South Island over Christmas and he took this beautiful picture of a kotuku.

"Back in the 1970's I got to know National Forest Service Photographer John Johns. John was a phenomenal photographer, who was both technically and creatively brilliant. John was a true gentleman. He shared his knowledge freely too.
One of his many amazing photos was a Kotuku in flight, however his photo was very different to other Kotuku photos I had seen. It was the white bird against a white sky, and in Black and White. It was a beautiful piece of art and showed The Kotuku, our White Herons features so precisely.
John Johns along with Geoff Moon would be our greatest ever wildlife bird photographers. They largely worked with film, creating images in a darkroom, and shooting with manual lenses, They respected their environment immensely.
This Kotuku photo, taken yesterday, is a tribute to John, and what he taught me all those years ago. I was very fortunate to have John and Geoff, who both passed away some years ago now, as friends and mentors".

Caution is advised to swimmers and people with dogs at sites in the Kāpiti Coast area.
The Otaki River at SH1 and Waikanae River at Jim Cooke Park both have high levels of toxic algae present. Dogs should be kept on leads away from the water, and children should be supervised. Toxic algae is deadly to dogs, and can make people sick. There are currently detached algal mats on the river’s edge which dogs love the smell of, making this site particularly risky. Remember, preventing your dogs from eating toxic algae is better than any known treatment. If you have been in contact with toxic algae and are feeling unwell see your doctor or ring Healthline 0800 611 116. If you think your dog has swallowed toxic algae, take it to the nearest vet immediately. You can check for updates on any of the sites on the LAWA website - lawa.org.nz/swim
