Celebrating our backyard bliss

Matthew Dallas Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Hey neighbour,

Our homes are our havens, particularly during lockdown, when backyards become a vital venue for DIY enterprise, children's adventures and beloved hobbies.

The Standard is keen to celebrate and share the projects, games and passions brewing in our region's backyards, that are helping to keep families entertained and spirits up during the alert level 4 restrictions.

If you've got a backyard bliss worth sharing, email reporter George Heagney at george.heagney@stuff.co.nz

He and a visual journalist will be visiting homes while adhering to lockdown social distancing rules and using drone photography.

Supplied images, supported by a brief description and caption information, are also welcome.

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
