plastic pots wanted

Winnie from Dannemora

Hi ,

Does anyone have a reasonably amount of small garden plastic pots that you don’t need, I’m happy to take them from you. Doing lots of plants propagation with my children in the lockdowns and school holidays.

Quiz Night, Wednesday, at The Barrel Inn, Howick

Phil from Farm Cove

Believe it or not, it's quiz night tomorrow Wednesday, at The Barrel Inn on Cook Street in Howick. I'm sure temperatures are rising as excitement levels build for our first Wednesday night quiz since August 11. You can reserve a table by phoning Clive and the dynamic team at The Barrel on 09 535 5540. We're serious quizzers but we're not that serious. We do enjoy having fun, and a singalong when it feels right. Remember, it doesn't matter if you win or lose, it's how you play the game. So bring along your lockdown locks if you haven't been to the hairdresser yet, like me, or your smart new do, for our start at 8pm sharp. Looking forward to calling the quiz again. - PJ

Rachel from Sunnyhills


Seeking a friendly and caring Personal Assistant/Carer for 4-9 hours per week during the middle of the day approx 11am - 1pm 2-3 days a week - no weekends, but flexible with days would be ideal. Local Sunnyhills location.

No previous experience necessary, on the job training provided.

Role involves making lunch (or driving to pick up something tasty), running errands, taking the client for occasional drives, hanging out and folding washing, ironing and keeping the kitchen tidy. Client has a full time cleaner and morning and evening personal carers.

This would be a great role for an empty nester or someone wanting only a few hours per week, but meaningful and interesting. Client has lots of great stories and interests to chat about as you get to know him!

Must be fully vaccinated with full drivers licence.

Immediate start.
