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 :)

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.

Support a Kiwi dad this Father's Day

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

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)!
