My Kind Neighbour nomination

Trish from Frankleigh Park

I would like to nominate Bev Heaysman as the "Super Neighbour"

I have recently had spinal surgery (x 3) and Bev has been there with meals, taking me to appts, daily calls and a caring friendship. Nothing is a inconvenience - Bev is most willing to help me in any way.
Recently I had quite a fall in the garden - during lockdown, and Bev came to my assistance without any hesitation. Bought me back to my house, cleaned the wound, settled me down and made me a cuppa. I had to collect something that day and Bev went out of her way to ensure this was done. I called Bev that day, my Florence Nightingale
Bev is the most caring and genuine person and I am so proud to call her not only my neighbour, but a very dear friend. TD

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
