Having a house sitter helps prevent burglaries while you travel

Teri from Homesit Wellington

With domestic burglaries up in recent years around NZ, having a responsible live-in house sitter while you're away is a strong deterrent to burglars, who are expert at spotting empty houses as they case the neighbourhood streets.

Contact us at www.homesit.co.nz... if you're looking for peace of mind while you're away this Easter or over months ahead - our sitters are pre-checked and interviewed and all have pet-care experience, multiple references and police clearances.

With a sitter living-in, mail is collected, lights are on at night and curtains opened/closed - life's seen to be going on as normal at your place while you need to be away - no giveaway signs that people are absent and your home's an easy target.

New clients - take advantage of our special one-day-off offer for your first booking (over one week's duration) in Wellington - contact teri@homesit.co.nz to discuss.

Hi Neighbours, are you interested in bringing a new culture into your home? Host an AFS Global Prep student, experience another culture, and share your culture in return. Students arrive in July and we need friendly Wellington families.

Global Prep programmes give 15 to 18-year olds opportunities to focus on projects such as sustainability, conservation and human rights. The student will attend activities during the day.

Families are paid $300 a week towards any expenses and provide accommodation and meals.

Anyone know where I can get some swan plants please?

Patricia from Kelburn

I know this has been a mantra this summer but, even with only putting our 12 (very large) swan plants out late in the Monarch season, and wiping quite a few eggs off leaves, we still have lots of hungry caterpillars and only a few leaves left. Does anyone know of anywhere still supplying swan plants please?
