Hi the house is in Maunu with a bush at the back of a 100sqm deck and a farm where you are allowed to go for walks. It's not far from town and at the end of a cul de sac. We get all sorts of different bush birds at different times and it is very peaceful and private.

I am seeking a female boarder/flatmate for either a short or long-term stay.

You have a choice of bedroom 1 at $175pw or bedroom 2 also has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite at the opposite end of the house, with a lovely garden&bush view out the window for only an extra $20pw. There is also a dove who frequents near the window as I feed it seeds and in the garden, the magnolia is starting to flower.

Unlimited internet is included, as is water rates. Share power and do your own food. Not suitable for night shift workers, sorry.

Phone or text 027 5141 394 to find out more or you can just come and meet me and take a look. :-) Cheers, Jo

Dear neighbours,

Please meet Alyce Read of Nelson, who uses her houseplant collection to connect with others and help them overcome mental health challenges. "You wouldn’t take a plant and put it in a dark corner and fail to water it and expect it to thrive. So we should look at ourselves that way," she says. "If we are not thriving in the way that we would wish, it might not be any fault of ours, it might be the conditions that we are under."

All it takes is a kind gesture to change someone’s day. From giving flowers to a neighbour ‘just because’ to paying it forward in line at a cafe - this month we’re encouraging our members and supporters to make New Zealand a better place one random act of kindness at a time.

The options for doing so are endless! Being kind doesn’t have to cost a thing, after all a smile is free. For those who want to go the extra mile, here’s some other ideas: take a gift over to new neighbours and introduce yourself, build a free community library for your street, buy extra kai at the grocery store to donate to a food bank, bring treats into work for colleagues, send an encouraging text to someone who needs it, let a car into the traffic ahead of you, write positive messages in chalk on sidewalks around your neighbourhood, or surprise loved ones with a visit.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re spreading kindness this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to:

RURAL’S VOICE WAS HEARD

The Groundswell movement is to be congratulated. Their low-key, apolitical, factual and dignified campaign has left the country in no doubt about the current issues facing farmers.

The Groundswell protests around the country were impeccably organised and transmitted the farmers’ concerns to what has been a sympathetic audience. Both the local and national media have been supportive.

Singularly, Groundswell has delivered farmers’ messages simply, clearly and without fuss. The country will be in little doubt of the problems facing the productive sector.

The Groundswell mantra of unworkable regulations and unjustified costs has certainly resonated......
