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.

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.

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.

Please pass on to anyone who may be interested?
Many thanks, Andi.

Some of you may have read our previous notice weeks ago trying to rehouse our dog Nala. After finding what we thought was the perfect new home for her we discovered instantly she is not suited to be with small children, her behaviour became unpredictable, she’s just not used to loud noise and quick movements of small children, so we’re trying again. Sadly we need to rehome our dog Nala. Due to suddenly having too move house we are unable to take Nala with us
. Nala is a 2.5 year old Staffie X Pitbull she is de-sexed with up to date vaccinations. Our baby Nala is a sweet, gentle natured Girl who is toilet trained and knows all her basic commands around the house however, she tends to have her ears painted on when she gets outside. Nala can be quite timid/nervous around other dogs but with monitored introduction she’d be happy to make friends. Nala is very playful and friendly and loves attention. We’ve discovered that Nala is not good around small, young children and is better suited to older children and adults. Nala is a bit of an escape artist, left alone she can jump a 7ft+ fence. Nala’s always excited to see people and tends to jump up on people to greet them and she’s incredibly strong. She needs a firm hand. She needs a lot of exercise and a good off lead run. Nala is a really quiet indoor dog, a great companion who’s really happy to just hang and be a couch potato.

Many thanks, Andi
