A great idea maybe.?

Alexandra from Paraparaumu Beach

Had a conversation with someone last night and they mentioned what a great idea it would be to be able to use the empty Placemakers building on Kapiti Road for community activities such as an indoor winter farmers and craft market along with any other initiatives that would benefit the community like a “repair shed” or “share shed” operated by retired tradies etc.....the ideas would be many but maybe it’s been thought of before.?

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.

Wanted: Angle Iron

Russell from Paraparaumu

I need a couple of lengths of angle iron for a project. Steel is fine too or even the stuff used to mount shelving to walls. 4 or 5m ideally, any condition.

Happy to collect from anywhere in the district.
