One man's special volunteer job at Auckland Airport

Sarah Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Meet the man who has considered Auckland Airport his second home for over 20 years.

Twice a week, 86-year-old Les Featherstone takes a taxi to the International Terminal where he volunteers for four-and-a-half hours as an airport ambassador, or Bluecoat.

Twenty-four years is a long time to hold down one job, especially as a volunteer, but Featherstone says signing up was the best thing he's ever done.

In recent times, the airport has taken on a new meaning for him following the death of his wife last month.

Do you plan to volunteer once you retire? What would be your dream role?

ATTENTION ALL.

Angele from Sunnyvale

I’m feeling fairly upset and violated as my family and I have only been in our new rental home for less than a month. I went in our downstairs bedroom (spare room) this morning to open the windows and heard something fall only to realise someone has tried to break into our home. Obviously they’re not a great burglar but still. We’re located on Brashier Circle so if you see anything suspicious please report it. They used these with no luck of getting in. I’ve made a report to the police and have installed extra locks on all our windows. So good luck to the prick that did this I hope your hands fall off asshole!

That's why, once you decide to invest in NZ's property market, your next step is to question which region you should park your money in.
