Hi neighbours - The Waipawa Masonic Lodge is for sale, and current owners are hoping new owners will continue to run the b&b which operates from the front section of the home.

Built in the 1800's, it was initially two empty halls which were then lovingly turned into a beautiful home and b&b. "It's a completely unique building," says owner, Colin. "But we've got to face facts. It's too big for two people."

Have you visited the lodge? Would you consider being the new Grand Master?

When a stranger’s beagle went missing in thick bush near Wellington, 39-year-old Whanganui carver Zane Hair volunteered to spend more than a week searching in cold and stormy weather, accompanied by his beloved 14-year-old bulldog Zeke.

After nine days, Benny the beagle was found alive and Zane formed a lasting friendship with Benny’s owner, Matt Newman-Hall. “What Zane did is incredible … I find it really amazing that someone was willing to go that far for a complete stranger,” he says.

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 :)
