Reach out, look out, help out AND speak out!
Hi Neighbourly - we're looking for a first-home buyer to talk about why it was their goal to buy a house and the reasons behind it (need to be willing to be pictured with it). We're also looking for a few people 50 years or older to talk about how important owning their own home is to their retirement goals
Can you help? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
A scrub fire caused by fallen powerlines on Thursday has ripped through 100 hectares overnight, leaving 11 people without power.
Four helicopters, 20 rural firefighters and a 12 tonne digger were working on the blaze and were hoping to have it under control by 4.30pm on Friday. It comes as mapping by NIWA revealed soils were "extremely" drier than normal and drought conditions were evident in some parts of Northland.

NIWA says signs of drought are evident in parts of Northland and drought conditions are "imminent". There are several water restrictions in the Far North. Have you seen signs of drought? How are you preparing for summer?
