Ready-to-eat Meal Delivery Providers?

Stephen from Todds Valley

My elderly mother has been getting meals delivered five days a week by the company Mobile Meals. I heard, unofficially, on Friday that this company are no longer able to deliver - effective immediately. I hope I'm wrong. Being Mum's caregiver.... and living 15 km away from her.... I have really appreciated the meal deliveries, particularly because of the wonderful delivery person who would keep an eye on Mum and let me know if something didn't seem right.

So... I'm wondering if anybody can recommend a meal service for the Enner Glynn area. I know I can use frozen meals, but these aren't so easy for my Mum to manage. It is much better if they arrive fresh on a plate and can go straight into the microwave or on to the table.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Best wishes from Todd Valley....

Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Maitai demonstrators take 'keep it rural' message to council

Tim Newman Reporter from The Nelson Mail

More than 100 people turned out at Civic House on Tuesday to show the Nelson City Council their opposition to a proposed housing development in the Kaka/Maitai Valley.

Is the Kaka Valley a suitable spot for a new subdivision, or do the costs outweigh the potential benefits?
