Poll: What do you think of the Provincial Growth Fund?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

This week Northland got another $30m in loans and grants from the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF), which aims to improve infrastructure and create jobs in the regions. But Labour is now saying it will axe the fund if re-elected, while New Zealand First says the $3b fund has done wonders this term. What do you think? Please explain your answers in the comments below.

Plants and Punnets

Liz from Rural West Whangarei

I am posting this on behalf of my mother, some of you will know or remember her well as she had Nellies stall for many years selling Potted Plants and Herbs, also Vegetable Plants and Flowers Plants in punnets. Mum has now retired from the market but invites any of you who would still like to buy her plants to go and see her at 10 Arcus Street Raumunga on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays from 9am to 4pm each of those days. She still has a great range of healthy, hardened off plants just as she had at the market, and a variety shrubs.
