Poll: Would you expect your parents to help you into your first home?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Almost a quarter of young people say the older generations should help first-home buyers into the property market, a new survey shows.

Westpac NZ polled 1000 people about their opinion on parents assisting their children into their first homes.

It found widespread acceptance of the idea: More than half the parents said they would loan money interest-free and only 38 per cent would expect it to be paid back.

Wool Prem Baby Knitting

Wendy from Gate Pa

I am knitting for prem babies at the hospitals. I am needing wool not acrylic as I am told the acrylic does not breath and can be too hot for the little babies.
If you have any spare wool I would appreciate it to help keep our little babies warm.
Thank you.

Mount Maunganui Job

Ethan from Papamoa Beach

Hi all,

We are needing a motivated and reliable full timer to work in a busy food factory/bakery in Mount Maunganui.

Mon-fri work, no weekends, no stats.

Food handling/factory production experience preferred but can train the right person.

Job is physical and repetitive like most factory work.

Hours are between 7am-5pm at the latest. (8 hr days, overtime when busy)

Great reliable team.

Please get in touch with me if you are interested and want to know more. Long term person preferred so this might not suit a younger person only looking for a casual job.

Thanks! :)
