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.

Popular baby product recalled

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Herobility Eco Feeding Spoon and Eco Baby Spoon & Fork have been recalled as they pose a choking hazard for babies. It has been found that these can break into small pieces.

The product has been sold at Mummum, Global Baby, Hatch Boutique, J Ballantynes, Mighty Ape, Smith and Caugheys and The Nile from October 2019 to October 2020

If you have one of these forks/spoons and the date stamp is marked 2019 or earlier (or no date stamp is shown), the company advises to stop using the product and contact Bloom and Grow NZ to organise for a gift voucher to the same value.
