How to deal with neighbourhood disputes

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, most of us are lucky enough to get on with the people we live next door to, but what can you do if you don't?

We asked some experts how to stop minor irritations turning into something more serious, and who you can you turn to if things start to get out of hand - because … View more

We asked some experts how to stop minor irritations turning into something more serious, and who you can you turn to if things start to get out of hand - because being better neighbours can only have a positive impact on the quality of our communities, and who wouldn't want that :)

Kindle paper white with cover available. From amazon. A cheap option for those who love to read. You can download many cheap books onto this. And the best thing about it is that you can read in any light conditions unlike most e readers. It will also solve your problem of storing books.

This was my uk mother’s kindle and she passed away last year sadly. The charger for it had a Uk plug on the end so no use here in Nz. However you can get chargers for it very cheaply. Just needs one of those usb 2 cables that you probably already own anyway. It comes with a purple leather effect case.

It is unregistered now so the new owner will need to set it up via an amazon account. I can help you do that if you don’t know how.

Now . . . The price . . . Reading is a priceless hobby and I would love to pass on my mother’s love of reading to someone who maybe can not afford one of their own. Perhaps you are elderly or you are unemployed or maybe you are a young person looking for a cost effective option. All I ask is that you keep this kindle and you use it regularly. I’m willing to give this kindle away for the small price of $20. If you want to negotiate make me an offer and send me a private message.

See pictures.

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.

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.
