Hi neighbours. Just read a message that some 2000 battery hens are due for the chop by Anzac weekend as the farm has suddenly closed.
If you can help with a new home for one or more (as pets only), please contact Sally Hart: franklinfarmsanctuary.co.nz...
While watching the online council discussions today I learnt that the 5 year targeted 'govt compliance' rate of 4.5% will after the 5 years carry on and be added into the general rate, not come to an end as I had assumed. So 8.9% will then be the baseline for rates increases. The council is getting better and better at hiding the details.
Thank you to all our amazing Mum's from the team at NumberWorks'nWords.
Please sign the petition linked below which asks the Minister of Finance Grant Robertson and Minister for the Public Service Chris Hipkins to support the public service and reverse the decision to suppress wages.
