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.

What would you do with a $13.3 million house?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A lavish home, believed to be the largest new build in Wellington in more than a decade, is taking shape above Evans Bay.
The five-bedroom, 1400-square-metre house in Overtoun Terrace in Hataitai will be fitted with two bars, an indoor swimming pool, work areas, massage and games rooms, a “great room”, and a home theatre.
It is being constructed on two sections of land, bought for $5.8m in 2016 by Wellington-based siblings Nigel and Susan Stanford.
The combined cost of the land and the house totals $13.3m.
