We live on a 5 acre life-sentence block in Havelock North and require the help of a fit person one day a week. Must be able to use and maintain a ride-on mower, manage fence repairs, light carpentry, oil changes on machinery, use and maintain a chainsaw (blade sharpening etc), help with general property maintenance and enhancement projects. It would be an advantage but not necessary to have a firearms license to assist with rabbit control. Must have own transport. Remuneration to be mutually agreed upon. Contact Brenda 0274889673
Hey neighbours, most of us are lucky enough to get on with the people we live next door to, but what can you do if you don't?
We asked some experts how to stop minor irritations turning into something more serious, and who you can you turn to if things start to get out of hand - because being better neighbours can only have a positive impact on the quality of our communities, and who wouldn't want that :)
If you value life with sound and share our view that early hearing education is vital for a healthier and more connected community then we need you!
For over 50 years we have been providing unbiased information, advice and support for people affected by hearing loss in our community. Due to a lack of awareness, 7 years ago we developed an education program that we deliver free to local Early Learning Centers, kindergartens, schools, tertiary centers and community groups raising awareness on the causes and prevention of noise induced hearing loss and other hearing related topics. Our program is highly valued and demand is growing, therefore we feel we are in a good position to expand and put greater focus on our education program. We provide a preventative service, enabling our community to value their hearing and take action to preserve a life with sound.
We are looking for a forward thinking, proactive person ideally with governance skills to support our mission and vision.
This is a voluntary role - Expectations of Board Members are that you attend our Board meetings which we hold every second Monday of the month from 5:30pm, these last approx. 1-1.5hrs.
If you are interested in becoming a member of our Board please get in touch today!
Te Atawhai Early Childhood Centre based in Mayfair is looking for a new Chairperson to help us to lead and support our not for profit, independent Early Childhood Centre.
Our centre had highly committed, compassionate and professional staff who strive daily to provide the very best care and education to our children, their families and the wider community - sometimes in very challenging circumstances. Our centre is totally free for up to 30 hours of care and education for each and every child who attend.
We are looking for a positive, open minded individual who can
work proactively with staff, families and the wider community. If you have some leadership skills and experiences and a can-do attitude this would be an advantage.
Our Te Atawhai community is a very supportive one. As Chairperson you would be drawn into our welcoming community and well guided and introduced into the role. The role itself is not demanding and involves building strong relationships, giving guidance and outside perspective to the management and the small group of Board of Trustees, who are families for our children. You will Chair a BoT meeting every eight weeks or so.
If you are at all interested in this important role for our centre, please phone Kelly on 06 870 7030. Thank you.
