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.

Cleaners

Tracee from Phillipstown

Can anyone suggest some good cleaners for a 5 bedroom? We are moving soon and would like the place to be cleaned at a reasonable price. Most on google are far to expensive or misleading with their pricing.

Cheers :)

Kittens 🐱

Kylie from St Albans

Hi all,
I’m looking for anyone who’s cat or knows of someone who’s cat is having/had kittens.
We are desperately looking for a new companion for my mother in law. After losing her last girl after 20yrs together a few years back she is finally ready to love another wee one again πŸ’• unfortunately we can’t afford the $200 plus it costs to adopt one through the SPCA. We would love to see her with a wee companion again as she is now in her early 70’s and on her own. The kitten would be going to an adoring owner who will care and love them endlessly! If you know anyone please message me.
Thanks for taking the time to read this,it is much appreciated and I’m hopeful that a perfect match is out there 🀞

Kylie.
