The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email email@example.com, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?
New Zealand's first kiwi corridor was opened in the weekend with the release of 10 kiwi in Tahere. The 14,000ha corridor links the successful kiwi populations in Whangārei Heads and Tutukaka Coast, giving these kiwi a total of 30,000ha of safe land to wander around in, and mix and mingle. Killing pests and controlling dogs are the main ways these areas are safe for the iconic birds. Do you have kiwi in your backyard?

We are looking for awesome individuals or couples who would like to support a local family and act as a "GrandFriend". We have a waiting list of families in your area who would love nothing more than to connect with you.
GrandFriends is a little charity that combats big issues like isolation and loneliness.
We are the bridge that brings kiwis together from across the generations. By connecting families with GrandFriends, we provide a long lasting “people” solution to loneliness.
Using our years of experience we match like-minded GrandFriends, extending their support networks, so they can enjoy the special moments, share the load - all the while combating loneliness.
You are welcome to apply as an individual - or if you wish to apply with your partner (husband/wife/significant other) as something that you can volunteer with together - that is also very much welcome and encouraged.
