Guillotine for paper cutting wanted

Karin from Upper Moutere

our pottery club is looking for a so called guillotine to cut A4 sheets of paper. Ideally it should cut up to 10 sheets but less is fine, too. And hopefully it's not too blunt...
But anything will be considered. It must fit A4 though. Am happy to pay a fair price!
Thanks in advance.

Would you want a final goodbye with an animal you had helped?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Jen Trow earned the trust of Charlie the stray, black cat before taking him to the vet. Thankfully, Charlie was microchipped but Jen would have loved one last cuddle with the cat and to have met his family. Have you ever helped an animal for some time before finding its home?

Do you know someone who's had to wait a months to sit their restricted licence?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Students, refugees and people who rely on a licence for their jobs are having to travel hundreds of kilometres to sit their restricted licence, or wait months in their home town. Do you know someone who has experienced the challenges of locking in their practical test? Since the story was published, driving instructor Kevin Bannan says more test times have been opened up in April.
