Notes for international callers

The country code for New Zealand is +64. The + indicates your international dialling access code, often just 00. If, for example, prefix (07) is shown then the area code is 7 and the full number is 0064 7 xxx xxxx.

New Zealand is 12 to 13 hours ahead of GMT. It's safest to ring around the time the Sun rises in London, but not much later.

To make the e-mail addresses clickable you must enable javascript and tell your pop-up blocker the site is OK.

Sending us e-mail

Clicking on e-mail addresses doesn't bring up a blank e-mail?

Most e-mail addresses on this website look like this: - if you find nothing happens when you click on it, your browser or pop-up blocker may be blocking it or you don't have javascript enabled. If adding this site to your pop-up blocker list fails to fix the problem, please type the address into your e-mail, sorry for the inconvenience. (In Internet Explorer, click Tools, Pop-up Blocker, Pop-up Blocker Settings... - enter folkdance.nz, click Add and Close.)

Why? This aims to mask e-mail addresses from junk-mailers. Some of us now receive over 1000 junk mails a week, all as a result of advertising our e-mail addresses on the web. There is no other javascript on this website.

*After e-mailing us you got a strange message back?

As an added defence against junkmail, when you send e-mail to the editor or web master, you will receive an automatic confirmation request. You have done nothing wrong.

So your e-mail is released to our In-boxes, please reply to the confirmation request (don't send another message, click the Reply button and Send). Please don't be frightened by this. Check your incoming e-mail after sending anything to the webmaster, editor, or to an Actrix address. If you see a confirmation request, just open it, click 'Reply' and 'Send'. (Don't try to fix the rather long address it goes to.)

If you get a reply saying the address does not exist, then please try one of the other contacts - or call the telephone number given.
