summer holiday work for 17yr lad.. seeking

Jenni from Central Whangarei

I have a big strong hard working 17 year old son that intends on returning to school next year but would appreciate some work if anyone knows of anywhere. He is applying to the supermarkets etc
He has experience in hospitality, has worked in the kitchens of a couple places in previous holidays but is keen to broaden his experiences. (has recently helped with wrapping of scaffolding)

Anything considered, even if it is just a day job!!

wishing you all warmth in these chilly southerlies that frequent us lately!

We Say, You Say: Peanut farms

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi neighbours,

What do you think about Pic's peanut growing trial in Northland?

Northland is now home to a peanut growing initiative worth $91K in a partnership between Pic's Peanut Butter and the Ministry for Primary Industries.

The project started in October on three Northland kūmara farms, with the peanuts ready for harvest in the next 16 weeks. Founder of Pic's Peanut Butter Pic Picot says that he hopes to make their product 100 per cent New Zealand-made if the trial proves successful.

MPI investment programmes director Steve Peno said that a plan to expand into a full-scale production would boost the local economy and create job opportunities for the region.

"This project fits perfectly with our goal of funding projects that will make a positive and lasting difference," says Penno.

Update on Tikipunga and Hikurangi Placemaking programmes

The Team from Whangarei District Council

Tikipunga and Hikurangi residents have been helping shape the development of their communities as part of our Placemaking programme. Thank you for your input last year!

Urban Designer Alicia Lawrie says the feedback received has helped identify opportunities, future projects and actions to include within these long-term neighbourhood spatial plans.

We've put updated summaries and reports on our website. We are now working on draft Placemaking Plans which the community can give feedback on before they are formally presented to Council for adoption later this year.
