Kelmarna Garden steers live to see another day

Mandy Te Reporter from Central Leader

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.

How are you at recycling?

Kendall Hutt Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours. Our bad recycling habits have seen 32,300 tonnes of rubbish find its way into recycling bins. This then had to be diverted to landfill, costing us half a million dollars over the last two financial years. How are you at recycling? What rubbish items have you mistakenly thrown in the recycling bin?

Poll: Would you expect your parents to help you into your first home?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Almost a quarter of young people say the older generations should help first-home buyers into the property market, a new survey shows.

Westpac NZ polled 1000 people about their opinion on parents assisting their children into their first homes.

It found widespread acceptance of the idea: More than half the parents said they would loan money interest-free and only 38 per cent would expect it to be paid back.
