Our homes can be our greatest investment and protecting our homes against climate change has become more important than ever.

Our changing climate poses risks to our natural and built environments. Swiss Re in a global analysis of insurance risk said to “expect climate risks to raise global property premiums by 33-41% between 2020 and 2040”. The potential increase was deemed a direct consequence of our changing climate.

Our Climate Insights property report provides easily understood information on change to risks for your current or a future property. The report includes robust and actionable information for residential property owners, tenants and investors to enhance their property’s climate resilience.

INVITATION to ZOOM MEETING WEDNESDAY 6 OCTOBER 2021 7.15 FOR 7.30 START
We are just coming through a long period of lockdown and starting to see a way through to a more "normal" way of life, but all of us know that restrictions may be needed again to prevent severe illness and deaths and to prevent our hospital systems from being overrun. Come and join this BPW Franklin meeting on Zoom where consideration will be given to what we've learnt during lockdown and share our thoughts on these questions as we look at the way forward. Giving particular thought to how some of these issues will affect women and girls and if you have stories to share that would be great! If together, we feel strongly one way or another on any of these issues, this may be the starting point for building a resolution to take to the next BPW NZ Conference.

1) Do you think New Zealand should put in place "health passes" or "vaccination passports" to allow access to indoor events or hospitality to those who are vaccinated?

2) Should home wifi access and digital devices be provided to school students?

3) What are the challenges small and micro businesses face during lockdown? What could the government do to provide more support?

If you would like to be part of this discussion please contact Virginia Warren who will send you the zoom link.

Kia ora neighbours, rural posties are delivering 50 per cent more than their usual volume, and they’re feeling the pressure.

NZ Post is delivering about two million parcels every week, or four parcels per second, a spokeswoman said.

Post volumes were up 50 per cent in Auckland, and about 23 per cent in the rest of the country.

Two rural NZ Post contractors in Franklin, who were afraid of losing their contracts if they were named, told Stuff they were working 13 hours or more each day to deal with the volume.

Masters Study

Meet Hinerangi Busby who shares her journey with Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi.

I am a graduate of the marae-centred programme, Te Pouhono, transforming Māori communities, promoting mātauranga-a-hapū, a-iwi. My participation took me to the Bachelor of Mātauranga Māori, and then postgraduate study.

Awanuiārangi centres you. This is the nurturing space of Māori researchers, with the support of academic and professional staff; this all transpires from an authentic indigenous and traditional Māori environment.

My studies have empowered me to play a more pro-active role in whānau and hapū affairs. Instead of being angry at a past that we cannot change, let’s become part of the solution for positive change.
