With chilly days and nights, winter is a really tough time for some of our most vulnerable New Zealanders. Through these colder months, The Salvation Army sees a consistently high demand for food assistance which stretches supplies and resources in their foodbanks across the country.

2.6m long (including eaves), 1.7m wide, 1.9m high at lowest point. Cream coloured walls and dark green roof and sliding door. Door is 0.9m wide. It's enough to fit my large motorcycle through.
It's got to go and quite quickly as I have Ideal arriving next week to build a garage on the spot. Once unbolted from the concrete 4 people should be able to lift it on to a trailer.
Sorry about the picture but it's dark when I leave for work and dark when I get home and I've only just been given the start date for construction!

Price: $400

Hello,

My partner and I are currently looking for a place to move into as of July, wondering anyone may know of something suitable or have something they might like to rent to us.

We are both working professionals and have 2 cats and a dog who are all house trained. Dog is crate trained and is usually with us if we are out. He’s only at home without us a couple hours a day where our work schedules overlap. Doesn’t require a fenced outdoor space, just a little room for him to do his business as we take him out with us most places. I’m happy to provide references for all the pets.

Currently living in a studio apartment so size isn’t a big issue as long as there is room for our things and we’re not party people, preferring to sit in with a good movie or book than go out.

If you might be able to help, please let us know.

Thank you!

Tramping an odd form of recreation
When Willie Field and Fred Vosseler founded the Tararua Tramping Club (TTC) in 1919, they began a century of organised tramping in New Zealand. In 1919, most people viewed tramping as an odd form of recreation. Today tramping has become one of New Zealand’s most popular leisure pursuits.

The club also fostered climbing, embraced skiing and encouraged women to participate in all these activities. And its leaders encouraged the formation of other clubs throughout the country. For many, the TTC became ‘family’, it was a place that generously welcomed everyone.

A century of organised tramping in New Zealand
By drawing people together in the social atmosphere of the clubrooms and in the mountains of New Zealand and overseas, the TTC fostered many life-long bonds, friendships and marriages. Within the context of 100 years of organised tramping in New Zealand, Chris Maclean and Shaun Barnett, authors of 'Leading the way', will discuss:
• how the club formed
• why it was a success, and
• how it set a model for other clubs to follow.

About the speakers
Shaun Barnett grew up in the hills of Hawke’s Bay, worked for the Department of Conservation, then became a freelance writer and photographer. His 'Classic Tramping' in New Zealand, co-authored with Rob Brown (1999) won a Montana Book Award. Between 2008 and 2018, Barnett also edited the Federated Mountain Club’s magazine, 'Backcountry'.

Chris Maclean learnt to tramp in the Wellington hills and later wrote 'Tararua: the Story of a Mountain Range' (1994). Its success encouraged him to become a full-time writer, after years working as a stained-glass artist. His book 'Kapiti' (1999), won a Montana Book Award
