Make sure to update any manual clocks (don't forget about our older neighbours who might need a helping hand) and have a wonderful spring weekend!
Here's a great opportunity to downsize to this wonderful 2 bedroom home on a large section in Parkvale. First open home is this Hawke's Bay Anniversary day (Friday) at 1.30 - 2.00pm.
Entries are open for this year’s Sunday Star-Times short story awards.
The awards include open, emerging Māori and Pasifika writers, and under-25 years categories and will be judged by some of New Zealand’s best authors.
The winning story will be published in the Sunday Star-Times and on Stuff. Entries close Friday 22 October.
Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...
Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.
- Green is for I'm OK
- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in
- Red is for an emergency
This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while also looking out for others in your community.
