Lynn from Glen Avon - Waiwhakaiho

I think it is high time we stopped wanting walk ways, bike tracks, rugby stadium, (who wants to watch a 2nd division team anyway) etc etc. it’s great to have all these thing’s BUT at the expense of water, sewerage, good roads, footpaths, etc the core of good councils, I know it’s feels better to say I was a councillor when we built the stadium then to say I was a councillor and we fixed the water. Or do we put rates up by a $1000 or so and have it all? I feel bad about passing it to the next generation when we haven’t maintained it and haven’t paid enough rates to cover costs.

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.
