Hi all,

Rhonda from Tauriko

I am an older adult violinist (approx Grade 3-4) wondering if there is a music group I can join to have some fun and increase my skills.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.

Sulphur Point

Communications from Tauranga City Council

About 60m of waterfront near the Tauranga Yacht and Power Boat Club at Sulphur Point will be fenced off from next week for an upgrade.

Workers will remove some old wire baskets filled with rocks and replace them with a timber-capped wall.

The new structure will be safer, and will allow people to sit on top.

The works are expected to finish in September.
