AMI, sharing community kindness!

AMI Insurance - Head office

When a stranger’s beagle went missing in thick bush near Wellington, 39-year-old Whanganui carver Zane Hair volunteered to spend more than a week searching in cold and stormy weather, accompanied by his beloved 14-year-old bulldog Zeke.

After nine days, Benny the beagle was found alive and Zane formed a lasting friendship with Benny’s owner, Matt Newman-Hall. “What Zane did is incredible … I find it really amazing that someone was willing to go that far for a complete stranger,” he says.

Hi neighbours - Ex-state rentals from Auckland are being bussed in to provide much-needed housing in Northland.

The "Whare Ora" housing scheme, run by trust Chief Executive Ricky Houghton, makes use of "recycled" homes, aiming to get whānau off the street. The waiting list for state housing has tripled since 2014, and 150 families and individuals are on the waiting list.

What are your thoughts? Is it time to declare a housing state of emergency in the Far North?
