Masterton SPCA Snip and Chip

Deirdre from Carterton District

I’m not sure if my previous post came up because this was originally posted 30 days ago!
Thank you to the lovely people at Masterton SPCA who ‘snipped and chipped’ my kitten last week. They told me to spread the word that they are offering this service for the rest of the year for $30 donation.

Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

To find out how to get the most out of your annual leave next year, click here.
