Have you ever thought about just taking off to travel in a van?

The Team Reporter from Hamilton Press

Piper Lovell is doing it, after finding she'd have to save for another 15 years to get a home deposit together.

“I don’t think I’ll ever be able to buy a house by myself, ever. I'd be happy to live in the van forever,” Lovell said.

Dog droppings

Rosemary from Nawton

I walk my dog every evening and I usually walk on Bartholomew Drive. In the last month I have been disgusted to see numerous dog droppings, especially on the eastern side. These are obviously the droppings of large dogs. What sort of people allow their dogs to foul the paths and berms without picking it all up after them? I always collect my own dog's 'doings' and it's not difficult so why can't others do the same? I don't carry enough bags to collect all the droppings that are left for people to walk on. It certainly spoils our lovely neighborhood.
