Meals on Wheels Drivers Needed!

Community Activator from Red Cross - Waikato Service Centre

This service supports elderly, ill and disabled people living at home who would otherwise struggle to provide healthy meals for themselves.
Volunteering is a fun and rewarding experience. Being a Meals on Wheels driver takes about two hours one day a week, fortnight or month, or even casually depending on your availability.

2020 ACT Candidate for the Waikato Electorate

James from Flagstaff

Greetings neighbours,

Just a very quick post to introduce myself following the announcement of most of our candidates this week.

I’m a Hamilton local and live here with my wife and daughter. I own and manage several small businesses, including an immigration law firm. I also work for a large NGO in the mental health sector, and am involved in a range of community organisations (with a focus on the arts and music).

Happy to answer what I can, but please keep it civil. Political candidates from all parties receive an unbelievable amount of abusive emails and messages from the general public and I would quite like to discourage that where I can!

Please note that I generally won’t be posting on Neighbourly, rather the best way to stay up to date is by liking my public page:

Back where it belongs

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi neighbours,

It was a special day in the newsroom on Monday as Stuff's chief executive Sinead Boucher announced a management buyout of the company, of which the Waikato Times is a part, from its Australian owner Nine Entertainment.

It puts an end to NZME's increasingly desperate bid to get its clutches on Stuff. It also puts it firmly in the hands of those who want the best for it, a NZ owner who understands the business.

What's your view on the Times moving back into NZ hands?

Read more local reaction to the buyout here.
