Central city businesses are losing shoppers because workers fill up all the car parks, a Hamilton retailer says.

The “P” word came up when Hamilton City Council met with members of the Hamilton Central Business Association last week - and a councillor told retailers worried about parking changes to make themselves more attractive to customers.

Do you agree with retailer Barry Radford of Hanrad Bespoke Rugs, who says more parking buildings for workers are needed?

Understanding money is path to wellbeing

The Team from Momentum Waikato

Managing your own finances wisely is a life skill that is becoming ever more important for survival and wellbeing in the modern world, and yet many people don’t know how to make money work for them and often pay a high price for that lack of understanding.

Managing your own finances wisely is a life skill that is becoming ever more important for survival and wellbeing in the modern world, and yet many people don’t know how to make money work for them and often pay a high price for that lack of understanding.

Cambridge philanthropists John and Nicola Kenel see this knowledge gap as a serious issue for the wellbeing of individuals, families, communities and the nation. Treasury recommended in 2010 that financial literacy be added to the school curriculum, but with no sign of that actually happening, they decided to get on with actively supporting financial literacy training in the community.

So in mid-2022 they made a significant founding donation to establish the Waikato Financial Literacy Fund at Momentum Waikato. It offers grants for well-run local financial literacy programs for kids and teenagers, and providing access to relevant online tools and apps, such as ‘SquareOne’.
