Thank you to the 16 people who came to the Westpac presentation on keeping safe on your phone and your various digital devices. I hope that you all found something new in the programme. I have got a copy of the Power Point programme and will make some up some notes to distribute. There were quite a few useful websites and Facebook pages mentioned to find more information and advice. I have several that frequently appear on my Facebook.
Member’s ID cards
The new SeniorNet ID cards have been printed and are available at the office between 10 -12 Mon –Fri. The cards expire on 31st January 2019. New cards will then be re-issued as annual subscriptions are paid.
These can be used at any Noel Leeming to obtain discount on your purchases. Using the card also helps to ensure the company’s ongoing sponsorship of SeniorNet.
As this was the first time we had prepared these cards we had to update our SNAP SeniorNet record keeping system. Future cards will be printed on card.
Remember that if you come to town early your Goldcard entitles you to free parking till 11am. If you want to use your Goldcard at any businesses if you go to the council offices the receptionist can issue you with a parking card. You can leave this on your car dashboard instead of your Goldcard. –see information below
Parking concessions for SuperGold Card holders
SuperGold Card holders are able to park free of charge up to 11am on Mondays to Saturdays at all on-street metered parking bays and in all Council car parks.(Does not apply to Centre City). You must display your Gold Card or a NPDC laminated parking concession card on the dash board. If you plan to park later than 11am, purchase the extra time at the pay machine and display the receipt on the dash with your council parking card. The parking warden can then see that you intend to stay after 11am and have paid for the extra time. I have my parking card permanently on my windscreen by my vehicle registration ticket.
If you come to town frequently at any time and use a mobile phone ask Marian or Derek in the SeniorNet centre about using the PayMyPark app to pay for your parking –saves hunting up the coins to pay and is cheaper than using your eftpos card. You can also easily extend your parking time without going back to your car.
Note: From 11am all vehicles must have paid for parking. There is no concession at time-limited parking bays.
Parking concessions for mobility card holders
Mobility card holders are allowed an extra hour on ALL metered parking, for example if you pay for 30 minutes you are given an hour and a half of parking. For parking spaces with a time limit, you are permitted to have double the time indicated, e.g. 60 minutes in a P30 park. Current international mobility cards can be used in New Zealand.
