Rental Home needed for Mum plus three

Bruce from Chartwell

Our lovely neighbour has to find a new place to live because the landlord has sold the house and new owners are going to be live in. Mum is a teacher with three primary school age kids. They are hoping to find a new place on the east side not to far from Hukanui School. If anyone knows of something can you please advise. Thanks Bruce MacKinnon (^_^)
