Nice Neighbour Nomination

Elly from Welcome Bay

We would like to nominate our wonderful neighbour, Sharon who has been a Godsend to us both! Since my husband suffered a major brain bleed and subsequent stroke in April last year, Sharon has been there for us. Sharon has helped me bring loads of wood up, helps with shopping and helps me with my husband when we have to go out. We would not have coped without her amazing help and she works full time also! She is an amazing neighbour and also checks on us to see if we are fine and especially me so I appreciate that so much. Sharon is a totally amazing wonderful neighbour and friend.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Te Puke

"Kia ora – Kapil Mathew from New World Te Puke here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is Music Bay Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a new one that I discovered thanks to their place on this year’s Top 50 list, and one I highly recommend others to try for themselves. I enjoy it because it has beautiful fresh aromas of pineapple and guava with a nice crisp finish of citrus and melon. I would pair this wine with spicy, grilled and seafood dishes - pop in and grab a bottle next time seafood is on the menu in your house.”

Come into your local New World and explore the Top 50 Gold-medal winning wines – we have winners for every budget. Plus join us for complimentary wine sampling and try before you buy.

Why has this Tauranga home been on Trade Me for 10 years?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Most people listing their properties hope to see a sale within a matter of weeks – the sooner the better. But one Tauranga couple have been waiting 10 years.

That's how long their 1.61ha Welcome Bay lifestyle property has been listed on Trade Me, which makes it the longest current listing on the website.

Why do you think the property hasn't been snapped up? Would you keep your home on the public market for a decade? How has the Tauranga property market changed in the last few years?
