Hello, neighbours

Does anybody know of someone who made their own will, and died without there being any problems with their estate.??
Elderly widow with no assets except
meagre household contents in a charity flat, and only income from National Superannuation, cannot afford $500 to make a will, let alone EPOAs. Her husband's funeral cost $12,500, and the lawyer charged the same for estate administration!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated to ease her anxiety. There must be many other people out there with yhe same worries. Please help with information. Thank you.

Hi

On 15 September at the Village Community Centre (365a Ilam Road) Burnside Primary school PTA will be hosting a table top toy sale. This is a great opportunity to have a pre Christmas clear out of your good quality, toys, books, puzzles and games. We'll also have some fantastic home baking and refreshments for sale. All profits will go towards supporting the children of Burnside Primary School.

We are offering 3 table sizes, which you can hire for the duration of the sale. It's up to you to present and sell your items and, once you've paid for the table hire, the profits from your sales are yours to keep!

Large trestle tables (suitable for sharing with a friend or group) are $25;
standard sized tables are $15 and small round tables (which would perhaps suit a supervised child wanting to earn some pocket money) are $8. Sharing a table would be a good option if you are hoping to shop as well as sell.

We have a limited number of tables available so please reply to this message ASAP if you'd like to reserve your spot. More details will be available on booking.

13 days until spring yahoo.

The team at Elusion are looking forward to longer days, warmer weather and more evening to walk the dogs. Spring is also a great time for a bit of home maintenance -checking gutters, roof tiles, and chimneys after all the winter rain and storms, getting the CRC out and getting rid of the squeaking door hinges that have bugged you for ages, checking smoke detectors and of course the great spring clean.

Elusion recommends you also check all electrical cords and appliances for signs of wear, tear or over heating. If in doubt throw it out , or get it professionally tested. You can never be too careful. We recently noticed heat marks up our wall from one of our panel heaters so it is currently unplugged waiting for a time when Patrick isn't too busy on other jobs for an upgrade.

If you are renting remember if you have any concerns you can request your landlord to organise an Electrical Safety Test. Happy countdown everyone

It will be the first fully democratic Environment Canterbury (ECan) election for 12 years but only one councillor sacked by the National government in 2010 is keen to stand again.

Nominations for candidates for the seven regional constituencies closed on Friday yesterday at midday, with 39 received for the 14 positions at the council table.

Six of the 12 current councillors are standing again, but Rik Tindall is the only member of the regional council dismissed more than nine years ago willing to have another go.

Hello my name is Michael wildbore
I am in a situation I never thought I would be in.My marriage failed and the family home has been put on the market.
Currently I’m not in a position to be able to house my dog but I don’t want to give her up as she’s one of my highlights.
She is a cairn terrier and she is a dog that sleeps inside in a crate but needs fenced yard for during the day.she has a really friendly personality she loves to play and doesn’t bite.
She has been brought up around a child who loves her dearly.I am unable to give a timeframe on how long I would need help houseing her for.

If there is anyone out there who knows of someone who wants to help I promise she will bring joy as she has for me

Her name is eevee and is currently not with me so I have attached a picture of her breed

Thanks in advance

Father's Day is just around the corner and for many Kiwi dads, getting a treat isn't an option due to the family's limited disposable income or being a solo dad. You can make Father's Day go further by donating a Father's Bundle to a Kiwi family for only $19.

Father's Day is just around the corner and for many Kiwi dads, getting a treat isn't an option due to the family's limited disposable income or being a solo dad. You can make Father's Day go further by donating a Father's Bundle to a Kiwi family for only $19.

At this time of year, we want to acknowledge all the dads in New Zealand who work hard to provide for their families - particularly the families who can't make ends meet. So, we created a bundle of goodies that these Kiwi dads will love! The bundle has some chicken, a chunky soup, an apple pie for the family to share, plus a chocolate bar (just for Dad)!
