A Happy Story from Michelle and Erick

Michelle from Linton

A Happy Story

Today we saved a little creature that had fallen into our pond over night. This is what happened this morning. I seen a small ripple in the pond water, for some reason i look out the window at just the right time .As we have frogs in the pond at first i thought it was a frog but then i seen what looked like a spikey thing swimming in the pond ,i then realized it was not a fish but a small hedgehog. I then yelled out to Michelle we have to save a drowning hedgehog in the pond. We both ran as fast a we could. Michelle got the the net and scooped him out. The poor little guy looked like he had been swimming all night. We put him on the lawn, he looked up at us, as if to say thank goodness you saved me! You could see the gratitude in his little face. He was absolutely exhausted and was shaking with being so cold. We took him inside, put him in a box, Erick kept him warm with a hair dryer and a heater. He had a big sleep and then awoke with a appetite. So we got him some cat food which he thoroughly enjoyed and then went into a bush and had another nap, and then later he was gone. Back to living a hedgehog life. 😁 The funny thing was he seemed to know we were there to help him and was extremely friendly toward us. The moral of the story is, every life is worth saving. A very happy ending, oh and by the way, the pond now has a make shift safety fence to protect the hedgehogs ha ha!

We named him Terry Flatwood. Don't ask us why

😂

See the photo he has Ericks beanie hat to keep warm.

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?

Tickets to Yesterday Once More

Michelle from Linton

Hi has anyone bought tickets to the show Yesterday Once More? It was due to come here in 2020 but was postponed until 2021 because of covid. A dear friend of mine had purchased 4 tickets worth over $300 and now the show is not coming to Palmerston North, however she has not received a refund for her purchased tickets and seems to be having a hard time getting anyone to sort it. Has anyone else had this problem?
We rang consumer NZ and they said the company she bought the tickets from (through Regent Theatre) had gone into liquidation and put us through to someone else that said they had not. I see on the internet shows in other cities still have their dates that they are supposedly going ahead but not Palmy. Can anyone help with this?
Many thanks 😊 My friend is a lady in her 60's and I really feel for her 😒
