Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

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.

To find out how to get the most out of your annual leave next year, click here.

Latest job completed

Nick from Nick The Builder

Howdy Neighbours.
Just finished this wee job today for a lovely couple in Glendowie. A small deck off the main deck for the new clothesline with an Aluminum screen as a wind break as well as visual appeal. Also a small retaining wall to carry the flagstone pavers for access to the clothesline. The owners are going to pebble and bark around the pavers at there leisure. Im looking forward to seeing the end result. This deck was fixed off entirely with Stainless Steel screws, brackets etc, not a nail to be seen. Although the framing members are H4 treated all cuts were treated with timber preservative for added longevity. All this was overseen by site supervisor "Bob" the cat.
Hopefully he's happy with the result. 😁
