My wonderful kind neighbours are Tina and John Lawrence.They remind me of the sort of neighbours we all had years ago.We have only been neighbours for just over a year,but feels much longer.I have had failing health over the past year,and they are always looking out for me.Nothing is too much trouble for them.While I was in plaster they came over and trimed all my Lavender,fixed doors,made soup,mended gates,etc.Nothing is too much trouble.All this and so much more.They are senior citizens,with wonderful life experiences under their belt,with a wealth of knowledge which they are more than happy to share.I feel blessed to have them in my life,and would love them to win a prezzy card.Many thanks,Marita Winstanley.
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.
This week, we want to raise awareness about sustainability and how everyone can help reduce waste by simply embracing this idea RECYCLE,REUSE,RELOVE.
Most of us love shopping and buying something new,but do we also think about the things we throw out? It’s a shame to send good quality items to landfill when someone else could still reuse and benefit from them.
The exciting news is that many people are recycling by giving good stuff to charity, so that others have the opportunity to reuse and relove them.
Give pre-loved items a chance to be reused by donating to your local Red Cross Shop.
Come in and have a look at the great things we have received in our Red Cross Shops.You might find something to reuse and even Relove.
The best part is you will be helping vulnerable people in your community, across New Zealand and around the world.
We're open every weekday from 10am until 2pm so you can pop in anytime to ask us about volunteering.
If you'd like to meet with us outside of these hours, you can make an appointment: call 03 577 9388, email email@example.com, or book online via our main Facebook page (facebook.com...).
