Andrea Neighbourly Lead from Eden Terrace

Difficult days for people who depend on paid work to keep their property and family...
The last day of work for most of those would be March 10.
"This has not been an easy process. We are very aware that these decisions will have a significant effect on staff and their families," O'Leary said in the newsletter.

He encouraged staff to support those affected, who would be visited by Work and Income this week.

The company was contacting other local employers and arranging workshops on CV writing and to discuss other support options.

The company was also expected to make a final decision this month on a revised structure for its exploration and geology team. Once that was made the company would know the impact on job numbers.

An OceanaGold staff member said almost half the 40 Waihī people working in exploration and geology faced uncertainty following an announcement at a meeting on January 15.

"We have mums and dads working with us, people with families who are tied to this area. We're really angry.

"We don't find out until March 1 who has got jobs and who doesn't ... so we're still fighting for our jobs."

We’re proposing some changes to the Waiapu Precinct in Onehunga’s town centre.

Panuku Development Auckland, supported by the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board, is exploring what Onehunga’s Waiapu block could look like in the future.

These are some of the things we are thinking about in the Waiapu Precinct:

• Improving public open space

The Many NZ Native Flowers in Bloom

It is easy to become busy and stop noticing the seasons beauty.
Take time to notice the flowers in bloom before their season for sleep arrives :) Have a hunt around in the city and your neighbourhood to see where and if they exist...

We were in bed at 10pm. I heard movement and saw a torch light about 10.30. I woke my partner who yelled out. The person left.
We think he came in and out the back door or he climbed a ladder that was placed outside the bedroom window.
He had been through drawers in the spare room.

We think he came in and out the back door or he climbed a ladder that was placed outside the bedroom window.
He had been through drawers in the spare room.
Luckily nothing was stolen
The police and dog came but they didn’t catch him.
We live In Rukutai Street.
In this hot weather remember to close and lock windows and doors before u go to bed.
We may Hve left the door unlocked.
It’s a horrible feeling knowing someone is in yr house while u are sleeping.

Rinnai Gas Heater

Robert from Orakei

This heater is nearly 20 years old but hardly used because we had heat pumps etc. Great for heating a room quickly but not vented so room needs to be well ventilated. Connects to gas tap and is then assisted by electric fan. $50 negotiable

Negotiable
