If you have the old reel type mowers I wont be able to pick them up as I only have my car but any push petrol type would be great please. If you have anything I can help with please message me directly. Have a great day

Throwback Thursday: Rail freight

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The war stifled building development in the 1940s but NZ Railways' new outwards goods
shed went ahead. The concrete structure at the corner of Colombo and Cass streets was the largest building in the South Island when it opened in 1945. If the shed represented rail's dominance in freight transport, the new Christchurch station, built soon after, symbolised an
expected golden age for passengers. The new goods shed allowed old sheds across the
tracks, and a little to the east, to be demolished, clearing the site for the new station. Who
would think, within 50 years, both would be redundant?

Guide for Carers

The Team from Office for Seniors

The Ministry of Social Development has recently updated the Guide for Carers, a valuable resource for those who care for family, whānau, āiga or friends with a health condition, a disability, an injury, or a physical or mental illness.

It covers a range of topics such as financial help, assessing needs, getting help at home and being able to take a break from caring.

The Guide for Carers is available online now: bit.ly...
