Tradies' silent suffering

Anna Williams Reporter from The Press

After his brother and partner in the family construction business died by suspected suicide, Chris Hughes wasn't sure what to tell his staff.

The construction sector has one of the highest suicide rates of any sector in New Zealand. Hughes says asking for help went against macho and "tough guy" attitudes in the industry.

He wants to know how we change that.

Just a gentle reminder.....

Mary from Casebrook

Just wanted to put it out there to all of us on neighbourly.
When one advertises they have a free item or an item for sale, a person makes contact and decides they want it and make a day and time to pick up the item, please ensure that the item is kept for the person. I live 25 minutes out of town advised the lady that had 4 x boxes of books to give away that I wanted them, and could pick them up at 2:30 pm today, also texted this morning to ensure all was well. Arrived to find she had given them to someone else. I wasted 50 minutes commuting......Rant finished, cheers.
