Home the focus as Autumn arrives

After the hottest, driest summer on record, the focus of home-owners throughout the region is about to switch from outdoors to indoors with the onset of Autumn.

For the first time this year the presenters of the renowned Waikato Home & Garden Show are to showcase an Autumn spectacular of products and services for the home with the HomeXPO from 26th – 28th April at Hamilton’s Claudelands Events Centre.

Hosts of the country’s most successful consumer event for 28 years, Hannah & Associates have acknowledged the growing need by home-owners to experience the latest products and innovations in home products and services under one roof, as the long hot summer draws to a close.

Visitors to the HomeXPO will have the chance to talk directly with designers, manufacturers and service providers and to snap up one-off HomeXPO prices and bookings before winter sets in.

With an unsurpassed building boom and a vibrant home renovation trend in the region, the HomeXPO is poised to provide a unique opportunity for home owners to research, access wholesale prices and secure bookings for work to be completed under one roof, in one day.

The 2013 HomeXPO is one of the feature events at this year’s Waikato Show – an event which was successfully re-branded last year to meet the need for a high quality community event for an increasingly diverse and focused community.

Visitors can be guaranteed a great day of entertainment, gastronomic delights and fun for the whole family. The Waikato Show incorporates the Music Expo, Adventure Experience and Activity Show, Wellbeing Waikato Show, Cultural Village, Alpaca Colourbration Show, Enviro Expo, Get Ready Get Thru Expo, and Amusements, as well as discover thousands of exciting new ideas and products for renovating building and decorating.

Urgent Bill Planned:
MP Pay Rises To Match Public Service

Mr Key says the decision was made after the Remuneration Authority’s latest determination which saw the total remuneration received by MPs increased by about 3.5 per cent...

The new legislation will be backdated to 1 July 2014, meaning the pay increase outlined in the latest determination will not be awarded. More>>
