Vinyl layer wanted

Lisa from Aidanfield

Looking for some who can lift a small section of carpet and lay some vinyl for me, it's a work related project so need someone who knows what they are doing and are able to invoice. Any recommendations are appreciated.

Mike Yardley: How can so many New Zealanders still smoke?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The proposed Smokefree 2025 Action Plan includes significantly reducing the number of retailers able to sell tobacco, limiting the nicotine content of cigarettes, and raising the age of purchase every year, so that anyone born after 2004 could never lawfully be sold tobacco.

Columnist Mike Yardley says most lower-income earners who smoke shell out more money in tobacco excise than they do in income tax.

"They should be vigorously urged to switch to vaping as a smoking cessation alternative, given it’s not just far less hazardous to their health, but also to their back pocket," he says.
