( Have you looked at Golden Bay CarPool today?)


WELCOME to Golden Bay Buy-Sell-Swap

This website is intended to encourage recycling and re-use of items which we no longer need.  There are surely people here in the Bay who would like to use the things we have in the shed...

If you have something which you haven't used for the past year, perhaps someone else may benefit if you listed it here for sale or to give away - it will help in a small way to save the planet!

There is NO CHARGE to list an item.  But you need to live in Golden Bay, because this site is for Golden Bay Residents only.  (Sorry everyone else!)


HOW IT WORKS

You can either BROWSE the EXISTING LISTINGS  below,
or you can fill in the ON-LINE FORM to create a NEW LISTING (or Remove your old Listing)

You'll see that there are THREE categories for listings:
    Offered:  For Sale, Give Away, To Rent, etc. (colour-coded green)
    Requested:  Wanted, Rental Required, etc. (colour-coded pink)
    Remove a listing:  Do this when you no longer want your item listed.  (When it has sold, for example)
   
NOTES:
Your E-MAIL is OPTIONAL - You need to enter it if you want the latest listings sent to you by e-mail every week.
Please consider doing this, it's a good way for me to keep in touch with you about recycling and carpooling from time to time.

Your BIRTHDAY is also optional, but you should fill this in if you want to be able to remove your listing later!  (You can give your cat's birthday if you like).

Please include your CONTACT details (your NAME and PHONE NO.) in the body of the advert itself.  It's safer NOT to include your e-mail address in the advert because of e-mail collecting "spiders" which will find it and start sending you spam messages!  (But it's OK to put your e-mail in the OPTIONAL field mentioned above.  Nobody will see it there, and I will NEVER divulge it to anyone else.)

To REMOVE a listing, just fill in the YELLOW section of the form, then submit it.  (You'll need to enter the Listing Number, and the Birthday you gave when you posted the original listing)

This website updates itself automatically between 3pm and 4pm daily, so you may need to wait until 4pm tomorrow for your listing to appear.

Listings will delete themselves automatically after 1 month.

There is NO CHARGE for using this website.  It's my small contribution to recycling in Golden Bay.  (But I won't stop you from making a small donation if you'd like to contribute to the maintenance of the website....)

Post any donations to  Albie Burgers, 386 Long Plain Rd, Kotinga

or Electronic transfer to TSB Bank a/c  15-3959-0142176-00
or into H.A.N.D.S a/c no 51.

Please can somebody help as I'm unable to. A friend is currently living in an old caravan with no power and no water, a long drop for a toilet, has rats and mice getting in to her food and caravan, and possums trying to get in to the awning. She had to move out of rented accom and in desperation this was all she could get. Worn out from sleepless nights and now in lockdown with winter coming, surely there must be a solution. Empty holiday homes? Motel rooms? Granny flat? Please text me on 0210614245 if you can help.

Have you looked at the Golden Bay CarPool website yet?  It's another way we can help to reduce our energy "footprint" on the Earth...


CLIMATE  CHANGE II


The ancient forests stand desolate
bare limbs reaching skywards
like doomed prophets
praying for rain
in vain

Drilling rigs perch on green fields and sea
piercing the ground, like needles
thrust into earth's black veins,
sucking her bounty -
Fuel to feed
our greed

Earth's blood
has been
shed

The dark cities lie silent now:
cars strewn like useless toys
we move about, eyes glazed
unable to adapt to this place
of concrete, glass and steel,
without the lights and music
we gorged on just yesterday

We gave our grandchildren their present
which we happily called our future
You knew, they cry,
You knew!
and yet
you
did

nothing
(Albie Burgers - July 2007)
