Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Some supernatural help has been hired in the hope customers and staff at the Resene shop in Cambridge will one day be able to see their favourite furry face again.

2020 is about to make history here at Ormiston Senior College with its first whole school production in eight years. The Crucible is a play written by the legendary Arthur Miller and set in the village of Salem, Massachusetts, during the 1692 witch trials. Among the women there accused of sorcery, nineteen innocent souls were executed, based on real-life historic events this bewitching and intense script is a story of greed, betrayal, hysteria and suspicion. It is a show not to be missed.

Sandy from Dannemora

Sadly someone’s black cat has been knocked down in Botany Road. As I drove past I saw that someone has placed it on the grass verge past the Golf Club entrance (towards the new building area) if someone is looking for their pet. Sorry for your loss.
