A huge congratulations to Meredith and Craig Butland from Avalon Service Centre. This local legend is a finalist in the Prospa Local Business Hero Awards.
Now they need your vote to give them a chance to take home a prize package worth $10,000!
Good on you, and good luck, Meredith and Craig. Thanks for bringing joy to your community.
Nominated by Maureen Coomer from Lower Hutt: "Meredith and Craig Butland and their team do a wonderful job, always keep me updated on what is happening and go the extra mile to make sure every job is to the customer's satisfaction. They drop people at their workplaces and pick them up when work on the car is finished, have courtesy cars available, do excellent mechanical work and are just really nice folk. They take the time to talk to customers about anything and are great neighbours to the local residents. Avalon Service Centre are definitely our local heroes in Avalon."
This week we feature Siam the klepto-cat. Not sure where Siam lives but the submission made by Sine Goldfinch was to good to ignore.
"Siam came in my cat door six years ago with this sponge in his mouth and dropped it at my feet as a gift for me. His owner gave him to me because he just refused to go and six years on, he still brings the same sponge to me every night. I'm pretty sure it is the equivalent of roses in his mind."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.
Technically it is not a Feathered Friend but this a lovely pic from Rosa Marie after her recent visit to Zealandia. Weta used to be much more common, when was the last time you saw a weta in your garden?
