Switch to LEDs for the climate

Andrew Caseley from Gen Less

Kahutara Primary School in Featherston is switching to LEDs. All LEDs are Gen Less bulbs as they use less energy, which ultimately helps halt climate change. If we all got on board and switched now it would make a huge difference

For the month of November, we want to raise awareness and work together to end all forms of violence including family harm, elder and child abuse, sexual assault, gang violence, and more. These victimisations affect us all and can have lasting effects that spill into our everyday lives including at work and school.

To do your part this month, perhaps consider supporting a women’s refuge or work with Police in your area to host an info night on how to identify elder or child abuse in your community. This month’s campaign also coincides with White Ribbon Day on 25 November which is an internationally celebrated day that aims to prevent violence towards women.

Let us know how you’re spreading the ‘It’s Not OK’ message in your home or in your community by tagging us in your posts + using the following hashtag so we can see what you get up to:

We hold a monthly meeting for retired, or those who consider themselves semi- retired persons, of all callings in our community who would appreciate an opportunity to gain more social contacts by meeting with others having similar interests or in similar circumstances.

Once Wanganui's original Probus Club, the name change to REBUS arose because the Australians franchised the name so large numbers of we Kiwi’s renamed our clubs as "REBUS,” and continued as before.

Our next meeting is at 10 am Tuesday 5 November in the Blind Foundation Building, 102 Peat Street Wanganui

A light morning tea is followed by some club business, then our November speaker will be Karen Workman and her subject, “How I Felt” .

The meeting concludes before noon and those inclined to, will adjourn for an agreeable lunch at the Breakers Room in the Grand Hotel.

Should you be unable to meet with us on Tuesday, consider joining our Coffee Morning at 10 am in the Parnell Café, Cnr Victoria Ave &

After 20 pleasurable years, the owners of The Peppertree are now ready to move on. They want a sale and have instructed us to present all offers.

Beginning life as a renowned restaurant and currently operating very successfully as boutique accommodation, The Peppertree works very well as a function centre and would also make a superb cellar door. Located with State Highway frontage close to Blenheim and situated on the soon to open Picton to Kaikoura cycleway, it is ideally positioned to cash in on Marlborough’s growing tourism industry.

Each of the five beautifully appointed suites has been subtly themed, providing individual charm as well as comfort. The heart of the home is a spacious, recently renovated farmhouse kitchen enjoying garden and orchard views. A large wood burner with wetback and solar heats the water for a series of radiators around the house, ensuring warmth year-round.

Encompassing four hectares and featuring organically managed vineyard and gardens, fruit trees, berry patches, olives and grazing for sheep, cattle, and horses, The Peppertree is close to being self-sufficient. The extra land also offers an opportunity for future expansion and development.

The rateable value for land and improvements is $1,520,000.
All offers requested to be received by 4 pm Wednesday 27 November 2019.

For more information or an appointment to view, please contact Michal or Tim.
