Looking for a place to call home?

Angela from Angela Sefton @ Bayleys Taranaki

I have a great new family home coming to market, close to Frankley and Woodleigh schools and handy to FDMC. 3 bed plus study, large conservatory and outdoor patio areas for entertaining. All in a quiet cul de sac off the very popular Frankley Road. Buyers in the $400,000's encouraged to view. If you have missed out before, don't miss this one. More info very soon.

Slavko, The Veggie Man.

Irene from Frankleigh Park

Slavko died last week! Really sad! I don't know if people realise that he donated the impeccably engineered Pukekura Children's Playground fountain.One day he asked me,out of the blue at the Car Boot Sale "You have car? And a camera?"....I was wondering where he was going to go with this.... He explained that he had neither and he needed to go somewhere and do something. So I picked him up from his house. He directed me to go to Pukekura Park whereupon he proceeded to take me to the "Fontana!'. He asked me to take a few photos,including him and one of the children present. He explained that this fountain was his present to the people of New Plymouth. That he had researched it thoroughly, had it designed and made out of the best stainless steel possible so that it would last a long time. I remember the price was exorbitant! Somewhere in the many thousands. Apparently he wanted to show his family what he'd given to New Plymouth by photo. Somewhere with the fountain is the plaque with his name.

For the Your Place survey we've put together a series of questions which should provide us with a comprehensive set of data that will be analysed and put in context for us by a team from AUT University.
