Big Labour Weekend jump for Marlborough vaccinations

Jennifer Eder Reporter from Marlborough Express

Wow - We reached 80 per cent fully vaccinated on Monday, with 303 first doses and 296 second doses administered over the three-day weekend. That's 2 per cent jump in first doses since Friday, to 92 per cent. And there were 664 Covid-19 tests, no doubt inflated with Blenheim's positive Covid-19 case. Did you get a swab taken at the weekend?

Who’ll get my record collection?

Public Trust

We all have special things we want to protect and share with the people we love when we pass away. It could be your record collection, perhaps some artwork, or even that classic car you’ve spent so long restoring. If it’s important to you, put it in your will. ​

An up-to-date will is the best way to protect your legacy – and your prized possessions. ​

If you last made a will when disco was all the rage, it’s time for an update. ​
