Hi neighbours, three steers have been saved and will move to a sanctuary in North Canterbury. The animals had been living at Kelmarna Gardens and were going to be slaughtered, which was mentioned on Neighbourly. The community rallied against this and a meat processor employee noticed the steers were important to the community and did not kill them.

Hi - I am a professional house and pet sitter who is reliable, tidy and great with animals.
You can count on me to keep your house safe and clean, and your animals happy while you are away.
I prefer longer housesits but I have some space for short-term sits in September.
Excellent references from previous house sits available in written or verbal form.
Look forward to hearing from you :-)
The local elections are a great opportunity to decide on who we want to represent our communities over the next three years. With elections just around the corner, this is a good time to pinpoint the issues that affect you and are important to you.
Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?
