Support, Shop and Eat local

A directory with all local businesses and groups featured helps residents to Support, Shop and Eat Local…
How can people support local if they dont know whats there…
Localised marketing is far more effecient and with successful businesses comes increased staff numbers, which in turn encourages more businesses to set up locally.
Buying locally is playing your part for the enviornment.
Buying locally means any dollar spent is multiplied by 5 as it becomes a circular economy

Kaiapoi Residents Noticeboard

From the Kaiapoi Residents Noticeboard… a page set up to inform local residents…

Here are my answers to their questions:


Kaiapoi-Tuahiwi Community Board Candidates – Information for Kaiapoi voters

Every candidate was asked:

Why should people vote for them
What are their priorities
What are their strengths
What is their favourite thing about Kaiapoi

It’s election time, we’ve all seen the hoardings/signs around town, and some people have been getting info in their letter boxes. It’s important to know about the candidates before casting your vote – who aligns with your values and who will champion what is important to you and what’s best for Kaiapoi.
So after reading a few comments, I’ve gone and surveyed all the candidates running for a spot in governance in our local area! The booklet that comes with the election papers is not that easy to digest, and the candidate statements online are very generic. I hope these are somewhat useful and relevant! Only posted in the order the forms were received.

I want to tell you a story….
In the last few weeks ago we started to do more and more live videos around Kaiapoi… with the idea to lift the profile of more local businesses…
We did a video in one shop…and a few days later the business owner called us to have a meeting… I was thinking yikes…I didn’t ask permission I just did it… I must be in deep trouble…
So very gingerly I went to the meeting, expecting to get a blast… but….
The business owner said her sales in the last few days have gone through the roof…and they couldnt work out why..until they started to ask why all these people were coming in and buying…it was all because of our live video…
So we want to do more videos to help Kaiapoi businesses… but we want to give Kaiapoi businesses more…
Air time on Compass FM at a super only for Kaiapoi rate for a month, FREE Time with a Mentor, FREE Time with Lesley of Eco Educate to reduce waste and costs, social media assistance with posts, live videos on Kaiapoi Information facebook page as well as Compass FM…
If you own your own business in Kaiapoi…give us a call… and we will have Sally call you and tell you about the Kaiapoi Only deal…
