Hi Neighbour,

We’re all pretty well-versed in securing our homes when we head out the door to work, the shops, or a walk around the block. Locking the doors and setting the house alarm is second nature to many of us. But sometimes we aren’t quite so cautious when it comes to our online security, which protects many of our personal and business assets.

Although no one is immune - don't waste another minute worrying that your business might become a target. Instead, get clued up on a few easy steps you can take to keep yourself and your business safe.

Why not give your business a cyber security risk assessment or ensure you have secured your website - it’s simple and we can help.

Digital Boost is here to guide you through protecting yourself online - doing so may save you a lot of time and stress in the future. We've got simple-to-follow videos on everything from software updates to password authentication and phishing.

Safeguarding your business is time well spent, so arm yourself with the knowledge today!

He escaped the Westport floods but Father David Gruschow’s luck ran out when faulty wiring gutted his home and destroyed all his possessions.

He escaped the Westport floods but Father David Gruschow’s luck ran out when faulty wiring gutted his home and destroyed all his possessions.

Luckily the St Canice’s parish priest was not at home when the fire broke out on Saturday morning.

“The inside is completely munted.”

All his possessions were damaged, but Gruschow felt fortunate to have his dogs with him when the fire happened, and was relieved they were safe.

He now hoped to move into a housekeeper’s flat adjoining the presbytery until his house was repaired.

Fire investigator Craig Piner said the cause was still under investigation, but he believed it was caused by an electrical fault in the switchboard or in the ceiling above.

Volunteer opportunity in Buller

Inspiring the Future is a programme where volunteers go into schools and talk about their jobs and their pathways.

The aim is to broaden young people's horizons about the world of work and how many different jobs there are out there that they could do. The programme is based on some research that shows that young people don't know about many jobs, and that stereotypes also hold them back from thinking they can do certain jobs (because of their gender etc).

Buller High School is looking to hold a couple of events in November and we need some more volunteers to sign-up for these events to happen. Anyone, in any job can sign up - please don't assume your job is 'boring'!

The people that have done it so far have loved it, and we provide resources to help you prepare - including tips from other volunteers. And it is only a few hours of your time.

Let us know if you can help out and to find out more about the programme go to inspiringthefuture.org.nz
