Morning neighbours,

Hamilton City Council staff have been treated to a $19k mass team talk at Claudelands Event Centre. It featured motivational speakers and a 25-minute acrobatic performance from circus company The Dust Palace.

Chief executive Richard Briggs defended the spend.

"Old school thinking is you don't spend any money on your staff and you expect them to just show up to work and go hard," he said after the event.

"New school thinking is you've got to give them some purpose for being here, and today was all about understanding that purpose and improving the wellbeing of the community."

These cows are floating on Europe's largest port, in another effort to make cattle farming more sustainable. The owners call it the world's first 'floating farm'. It's in Rotterdam and they want it to minimize waste and land use, and also bring food production closer to the city.

Boasting a grand sense of space, each room is generously proportioned that will suit large and extended families or couples who simply just want space. There is a choice of three living rooms, formal and informal dining options, five bedrooms serviced by the family bathroom with the master having its own ensuite, plus a bedroom sized office. The casual family living with native hardwood flooring and high stud has a seamless flow through to the private sun soaked outdoor living with mature planting - ideal to entertain family & friends. The property includes an oversized double car garage with good off street parking & a separate laundry. Properties with this much space in such a fabulous location are hard to come by. A short walk to local shops, river walkways, public transport and easy access to the expressway will suit families & couples. Our motivated vendors are downsizing and have priced this property to sell. Lock in this family haven - it simply won't last.
