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.

Beware...some adorable ghosts may be haunting your streets.

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Halloween can be a fun way to connect with your community. But naturally not all homes in New Zealand will get involved.
If your house is open to trick or treaters this weekend, or if you know of some popular, local streets for trick or treating, please share these below.

Is your cupboard overflowing with forgotten reusable bags?

Millie from St Vincent de Paul Society Wellington

♻️💚 We're on the hunt for reusable bags to pack food parcels. Food assistance numbers are continuing to rise and our bag stock isn't keeping up!
We're ideally looking for supermarket sized bags, but all shapes, colours and sizes are welcome.

💚 Drop-off bags to the Newtown Welfare and Support Hub (level 1, 207 Riddiford Street) or to your local Vinnies Op Shop.
