Are you a recent home buyer? or a retiree in your own home?

The team Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Hi Neighbourly - we're looking for a first-home buyer to talk about why it was their goal to buy a house and the reasons behind it (need to be willing to be pictured with it). We're also looking for a few people 50 years or older to talk about how important owning their own home is to their retirement goals

Can you help? Email susan.edmunds@stuff.co.nz

Councillor childcare costs will be covered by the Waimakariri District Council

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

The Waimakariri District Council will pay for childcare costs incurred by elected members up to $6000 per child, per year – uncapped.

In the proposal document, it stated there were concerns a lack of financial support for childcare created a "barrier for people, in particular women, to enter elected positions in local government".

The allowance was introduced by the Remuneration Authority last year, but the decision to adopt it was left up to individual councils to decide.
