Having ample parking space for his, her and the teenager’s vehicle will add overall value to your home. It also allows you too easily view the driveway to see if your teenager is “out on the town”.
A good driveway opens a myriad of options – bike riding, push chair and wheel chair access and the kids can play basketball and other ball games. Invite a few bubble friends over have a BBQ on it.

This week we're looking at how the pandemic will affect our children and their resilience. The Sunday Star-Times wants to hear from children about how they've been impacted by Covid-19 and lockdown. Perhaps they've learned more about hand washing and germs, or maybe they want to talk about having mum or dad home more often, or learning from home. Kids can write a sentence or two to be included in print by emailing email@example.com, by Friday, July 10, at 5pm. Their first names and ages may be used in print. Parents, if you're happy for your children to be photographed please let us know.
