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.

East Coast Bays Deserve More Than a "Token Representative," says TEA Party's Susanna Kruger

Susanna Kruger from Susanna Kruger - TEA Party Candidate for East Coast Bays

Although held by National since 1987, the East Coast Bays seat was previously held by a minor party (Social Credit). Kruger now contests this seat as Co-Leader of the TEA Party and number 2 on the party list, as opposed to Erica Stanford’s 39th position on National’s party list. While some may … View moreAlthough held by National since 1987, the East Coast Bays seat was previously held by a minor party (Social Credit). Kruger now contests this seat as Co-Leader of the TEA Party and number 2 on the party list, as opposed to Erica Stanford’s 39th position on National’s party list. While some may argue that 39th on a major party list is better than 2nd on a minor party list, if Kruger is indeed elected, it will put National in real trouble. What was once a safe electorate, no longer is; especially with Stanford wearing a confusing red in her blue billboards. National appears to have lost its ways in the East Coast Bays! Kruger will be able to bring real change to the East Coast Bays on central government level, instead of Stanford’s voice that would merely result in more of the same old same old: a “Token Representative.” Kruger, from Namibia / South West Africa 20 years ago, here being a self-employed Legal and Business Consultant, has handpicked a set of COVID-19 response policies that will benefit the residents of the East Coast Bays directly. As her Neighbourly profile reads, “I aspire to be the Minister of Social Development so that I can change it from a hand-outs to a hand-ups operation, transforming the way we deal with poverty and homelessness in Aotearoa.” Purple, the colour of the TEA Party, seems to be the new blue!

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.

Timmy, a handsome 4-year-old tabby, disappeared one weekend in August from his cat house at the rear of the premises. Customer Paul Norfolk and wife Gloria had looked all over town for their favourite store cat, along with the shop’s manager, Kerry Mason, and her staff.

“Timmy is such an icon around Cambridge, everyone knows him as the Resene cat,” Gloria said.

example Internet/computer/mobile/central to main shops through volunteers' ability to request in writing or phone through postage or even initial stage vote for how do we set up the allowances the queries to occur as a prime directive.

Coronavirus is more of a reason to sort out the stadium

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, It's easy to say things shouldn't be done because we need to focus on Covid-19 elimination, but maybe that's more of an argument to sort out the stadium plan. Read the story below.

Hello Ladies,

As many of you have seen, I have started a Lash and Brow studio. At the moment, I offer a Classic Lash set with a very specific map. A map? That's lash artist speak for the pattern we use to decide which length goes where.

I would like to test a new lash map out and I'm looking for models who would be willing to give it a try and be happy with before and after photos which I will publish on social media. Your lashes need to be healthy as I will be applying a longer length. The set is valued at $129 but since I'm in test phase, I'm charging my 2-week fill price of $65. Please click on the link below if you are keen. Only 7 spots up for grabs.
Please message me if you're interested.
Thanks
Taryn
