Giving to your community through retail volunteering

Hannah Cunningham from Volunteer Marlborough

Volunteering in a retail setting is excellent work experience, and not just if you're wanting to work in retail. Volunteering shows employers that you are reliable, dependable, and that you have a great work ethic - things that every employer is looking for! In addition, volunteering in a retail setting can boost your confidence, teach you new skills, and is an opportunity to make new friends!

We are currently recruiting for seven stores around Marlborough:
- Red Cross
- Trade Aid (Picton)
- SPCA Op Shop
- Blue Door
- Selmes Garden Centre
- The Salvation Army Blenheim Family Store
- Sheets 'n' Things

Interested? Send us a message, call 03-577-9388, or email vm@volunteermarlborough.org.nz

Bus patronage decreasing as Environment Canterbury moots 9.8 per cent rates rise

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Canterbury authorities have dropped their goal of 20 million annual bus trips by 2020 as public transport use declines in Christchurch.

The service, run by regional council Environment Canterbury (ECan), is to be overhauled in a plan that will contribute to a planned 9.8 per cent rates increase – almost double what was previously forecast.

Read more here and tell us what you think of ECan's plan in the comments below.

Introductory Hourly Rate Offer

Tom from Property Maintenance Marlborough

Sharyn and I have recently moved to Blenheim to live, looking forward to the wonderful weather and fantastic community facilities and spirit.

I have a long history of high end finishing around residential properties and am very keen to establish a strong presence here in Marlborough.

As an introductory offer to Neighbourly members, my hourly rate will be discounted to $30 an hour until the end of March 2020, I do not charge for travel in the Blenheim area and all materials are charged at my cost, no loading.

I look forward to being able to share my knowledge and advice if required in the near future.

Cheers Tom
