Upper Hutt Leader : December 14th 2011
18 UPPER HUTT LEADER, DECEMBER 14, 2011 NEWS BBQ CARS Dodge those Barbeque Hassles -- we do it for you. Local businessman Ron Meiklen spotted this 1957 Dodge mobile Barbeque for sale on Trade Me recently and liked it s om u ch he bought it. Ron says he saw the potential to add a "novelty factor combined with real functionality" for groups such as sporting clubs, service organisations, businesses, groups or private individuals holding functions and parties. So he set up BBQ Cars offering a three tiered service to customers. During the rebuild the engine was removed and the finished design now incorporates two inbuilt barbeque with a stainless steel icebox in the boot, or trunk. Having two barbeques means it has the ability to cater for smaller or larger groups. The car's sole means of travelling the open road these days is by way of a purpose built trailer. "We have tried to be as flexible as possible" he says by offering customers one of three options for hire. The first option is simple minimum hire where we deliver it to you on site and pick up afterwards. The second option is where we will supply the Car and a Barbeque chef for a reasonable hourly rate. The third option is the full treatment with all the catering supplied according to customer requirements and budget. So if you are holding an event these Christmas holidays and would like to do something a little different give Ron a call today. He is always happy to discuss how he can tailor a package to meet you party/function requirements. Hire Rates are:- Half day (4 hours min) $200 24 hour $350 Chef per hour $20 Catered functions by arrangement Delivery and pick up included - all plus GST.

So whether you are babysitting or watching your child crawl for the first time, do a quick scan of the house for hazards, the Consumer Affairs Ministry says. A WORD OF ADVICE Toddler-proof your house by looking at it from a child's point of view. Harness your childlike sense of wonder and imagine what looks interesting from a low viewpoint. Remove or protect anything that a baby could choke on, get tangled in, get burnt or electrocuted by, or pull down on themselves. Some tricks are to get guards for heaters; get broken or torn furniture fixed; and attach bookshelves to the wall. Do not put confiscated toys at the top of a bookcase, because that may tempt a child to try to climb the bookcase to get it. Curtains or blinds with looped cords hanging down are danger- ous for children to get caught or strangled by. Some options are to cut the cords so you just pull on each side to open; fix the cords to the bottom of the wall, so there is no slack; or tie the cords up high, out of reach of a small child. It is tricky to toddler-proof the whole house, so if you have just checked one room, make sure the child cannot escape into another part of the house or outside. Put safety barriers at the top and bottom of stairs just in case. The baby's room must be the safest, because you cannot be there to keep an eye on them all the time. Nursery furniture should be kept well away from windows, curtains, heaters, pictures on walls, ornaments on shelves, and curtain cords. Once your child is old enough to stand they need to change to a child's bed, otherwise they may try to climb out of their cot and fall. For information about choosing safe baby equipment and using the equipment safely, go to consumeraffairs.govt.nz and look up ''Keeping kids safe''. It's carols on Speldhurst Speldhurst Park in Stokes Valley will resound to carols this Friday. Carols on Speld- hurst, with an appearance by Santa, will be on from 6pm till 8pm.
