Family-owned Auckland print company Soar is flying high, with two of its team winning accolades at the prestigious Pride in Print 2021 awards.

Print apprentice Travis Jordan was named the Print Industry Apprentice of the Year, while Alex Huynh won the Workplace Trainer of the Year. For Travis, the award is an acknowledgement of the time and effort he has put into his craft.

“It’s really special and a reminder that you get out what you put in,” he says. “The award is something I’ll happily carry with me throughout my career.”

It's awesome to see not only one of our apprentices getting recognition, but also the skilled team member who trained him winning an award.

Today we have photographs and words from Simon Woolf.

"The bird feeders are now bringing in a few more different varieties of small birds. Today a flock of greenfinches visited, and a sole yellowhammer! The yellowhammer (pictured right) was a real treat, as you know they are around as they are very tuneful, however they are difficult to see at times. Our kaka also visited at least twice today!"

Another great story!
Southland father and son, Robert and Bobby Baird have recently received their forestry qualifications, proving you are never too old to learn.

While Robert has practical experience gained during four decades in the bush, he says vocational training like the qualification he has just done is helping keep people safe.

Competenz assessor Neville Muir worked with Bairds throughout their training programme.

“Bobby is very driven to succeed and very organised. He’s also very keen to continue upskilling his crew and there are a lot of different certificates still to do,” he says.

While Bobby is his boss at work, Robert turns back into ‘dad’ at the end of the day. “I give him a hand during the day when he’s got a lot of work on. We have a great relationship and it’s a magic thing to be able to do to work with your son.”

The backers of a new housing development are aiming to give more first-home buyers a leg-up
Forty-one of the 51 three-bedroom, 117 square metre houses being built at Koru Kāinga in Wainuiomata will be priced well-below market rate at $650,000 and will be available only to first-time buyers.
With the national housing crisis having catapulted Lower Hutt’s median house price above $800,000, developers and sellers have been clamouring to get top dollar for their properties, but Koru Homes founder Adrian Chooi​ is bucking the trend.
Chooi announced his plans to build a smaller development at the site last year, but has since revised the scale.

Over lockdown Neighbourly is running stories on SPCA pets that have been successfully adopted. This week it is Zoe.

“The adoption has progressed really well with our little Zoe. Before we went to pick her up, I had a whole list of elegant princess type of names to rename her, but now that she has fully settled in, we have come to realise she is quite the opposite of that and more of a mischief cheeky troublemaker.
After a couple of weeks of slowly introducing each other, Zoe and her feline brother have gotten along a lot better than we anticipated. What she lacks in hearing she definitely makes up in with her voice and all the random noises she constantly makes. We bought her a large expensive cat tower and of course she much prefers to sleep and play around in a paper bag, so that has been fun being woken up at 3am with her rustling around in the bag.
Her new favourite area of the house is the bathroom where she loves to sit on the bath for hours and watch the water slowly drip out of the tap or go and rip up every single piece of toilet paper. She is constantly making us laugh and is so full of character and is loved by all our family and friends. Thanks so much for everything.”

What Are These Dogs Doing On My Property?

Sonali from Wainuiomata

I saw these 2 boxer dogs on my property yesterday & one of them left mess on my property! I screamed at these dogs to get out of my property!

When I went for a walk around my neighbourhood to see whether I could find the house that these dogs are living, these dogs are nowhere to be seen! If you can't be responsible for your dogs at your home & always letting your dogs visit other people's properties, you shouldn't have dogs just because you are letting your dogs roam on my property!
