Local Currency Ideas Meeting

Geoff from Bay of Islands

Local Currency Ideas Meeting
Greetings Some may be aware that Transition Towns Bay Of Islands has a weekly Zoom meeting to discuss ideas for our post CON virus pandemic future. Last Sunday was mainly about getting our local currency up and running again. It was suggested that we have local small group meetings to exchange ideas as to how we can achieve this. There will be an informal get together this Sunday,24 May at 10 am at Klaus Kurz's place, 5632, Russell Whakapara Road a/k/a "Fiddlers Green" Attendees can either make their own way there or, if they present themselves at Russell Baptist church by 9.45 am, they will be welcome to a free ride in Paihia Taxis minibus.
Please feel free to contact me either by e mail (searcher1068@yahoo.com) or by phone 09-402-7506 if you are interested and/or would like more information. Hope to hear from someone at leastYou might care to watch this www.youtube.com... to get some advance information It would also be interesting to hear from a reporter who might be interested in doing a story on something like "local currency" which would benefit our communities, but I won't hold my breath

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
