All the kindling you'll need for winter!

Isabelle from Leeston

If you’re sick of constantly running out of little bags of kindling, I’m a Leeston local selling a whole winter’s worth in one bag.

Log burner length, and super dry. Pure willow. Willow is often not recommended for firewood because it burns so fast – but that makes it the perfect kindling.… View more
If you’re sick of constantly running out of little bags of kindling, I’m a Leeston local selling a whole winter’s worth in one bag.

Log burner length, and super dry. Pure willow. Willow is often not recommended for firewood because it burns so fast – but that makes it the perfect kindling. It’s a guaranteed, stress-free way to get every fire roaring within a minute – no special skills required!

This 60x60x75 bag contains one quarter of a cubic metre, which equates to a very large amount of small sticks! It’s ALL the kindling your household will need for this winter.

Price is $70, which includes the tough garden waste bag with convenient handles – the bag makes the kindling quick, easy and clean to transport and store.

Buyer must collect from our rural property 5 min drive from Leeston, or 10 min drive from Lincoln and Rolleston. Collection and payment can be contactless if you prefer. We’re posting on a number of local sites, and have lots of these bags available.

Message me for details. Cheers – stay safe, and warm.

Price: $70

As a nation, we recently held a moving ANZAC Day commemoration. So now is a good time to reflect on how we treat our military personnel during and after their service. It speaks volumes about who we are as New Zealanders.

Let’s not leave those who serve our country behind.

Can New Zealand do more to ensure that past, present and future service people - and their whānau – are recognised and supported?

If you were one those who turned to baking to get through lockdown - and even if you weren't! - thought I'd kick off by sharing the two most popular recipes on Stuff during those seven weeks: pull-apart hot cross bun bread, a recipe from Nicola Galloway, and cheese straws, a recipe from Sam Mannering. Let me know what you cooked in lockdown too.

Small businesses are vital to the recovery of our economy.

During the Covid-19 restrictions, business owners have shown initiative, hard work and resilience to keep afloat.

But many have been hit hard.

Lack of clarity about just how heavy the toll of the restrictions have been on individual businesses and their ability to quickly rebound adds to the uncertainty of the national economic recovery.

Therefore, Prosper is launching a survey targeted at finding out the scale of Covid-19's impact.

You can take that survey right now – it will only take a few minutes.
