Moving forward

Glen from Central Whangarei

I would like to share this as I hope it will be a link to a positive story moving forward.
I had Steve Smith from North Chamber meet me for about an hour at my home office today.
I feel it was an excellent productive meeting Steve said he enjoyed the meeting.

I am trying to raise awareness of the many skilled people wanting to work, this may include disabled people, Maori, and others struggling to find employment and less likely to be given opportunities that may lead to work.

I would like to see the media write positive stories about high achievers and those not so high but giving it a go. Steve was surprised at the statistics I was showing him re-employment and opportunity.

I would like to see good things for our city and our people and look forward to working with North Chamber on ideas creation, problem-solving, and solutions that may work.

I am also finding WDC easier to work with using my own organization to improve the lot of the disabled and everybody else, as I explained to Steve if we can improve accessibility for disabled people you improve accessibility for everyone.

My approach I think is to take a big picture and concentre on fixing the broken bits.

We are looking for a VERY SPECIAL Home...

Alison Shrigley Reporter from Whangārei Leader

When Peggy came into the SPCA she was pregnant and missing the lower part of her right hind leg. We don't know what happened with her leg as it was an old injury. Now, thanks to our vet team and the care of our staff, she is desexed, has had her leg amputated and is ready to move on and find her forever home. She's a smoochy, sweet natured girl with a loving, playful purrsonality.
She is still recovering and learning about life on 3 legs. Once she has built up her strength she will be a normal cat with an awesome nature! We are looking for a family home with older kids, no other cats as she has been treated for cat flu, and a safe area for her once she's outside as she won't be as quick on her feet for a while. You can check her out on our website or give us a call at the centre on 094389161 ext 5 to make an appointment to come in and meet her www.spca.nz...
