Plastic pots needed

Angela from Te Aroha

Hi, here at Budz florist our vintage bag posies are proving to be very popular.
Rather than buy more plastic I am recycling used yoghurt and honey pots or any other containers of a similat size to fit the bags, If you have any call me at 07 884 9997 or drop them in here to the studio in Waihou. Thank you to those of you that have already done so, much appreciated.

Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

To find out how to get the most out of your annual leave next year, click here.
