Kia ora Neighours - I hope you're all doing well in this latest lockdown.

We love seeing our apprentices making waves in the industry.
Wade Peek was recently named Plastics Apprentice of the Year, is definitely one to watch. With two qualifications under his belt, he’s been earmarked as a future plastics industry leader.

He hopes to one day start his own manufacturing business and says: "I really want to pass on what I have learnt to support apprentices in their training. I also want to be able to teach people outside of the plastics industry about what we do, as I truly believe we can't solve any of the really important environmental issues that surround plastic unless as many people as possible understand it."

Retirement is a time to de-stress, relax and make the most of life. However, preparing for retirement can be challenging.

If you’re approaching retirement, you may well be contemplating different things, such as when is the best time to retire and also how you’ll keep yourself occupied.

No doubt, you’re also considering where to retire. You may prefer to stay in your local area, or you may consider relocating somewhere new. If you’ve not yet made up your mind, then a helpful practice is to consider all the things you enjoy doing most and look for areas that best support them.

Find out more about retirement village living and pay the village a visit.
