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.

A whole winter’s worth in one bag. No more running out of little bags or constant topping up!

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.

Dear Canterbury and the West Coast - ANZAC Day will look a little different for us this year - however there are many ways for you to acknowledge the incredible men and women who have served our communities and given their lives for our country.

We invite you to share a memory or photo to commemorate this special day on Neighbourly below. It could be a story of a member in your family who served - or perhaps the way you and your family celebrate ANZAC Day each year. (It might even be a photo of your freshly baked can't be-beaten ANZAC cookies).

We also invite you to take part in Stand at Dawn and join us at 6:00 am on Saturday 25 April. Stand at your letterbox, at the front door, in your lounge rooms, balconies, in your driveway. Wherever you are in the world, stand with us and take a moment to remember our fallen – but please stay within your ‘bubble’.
