Record turntable

Peter from Swanson

Good morning everyone.

I have an old friend who’s turntable has stopped working and is definitely very dead!

He loves his huge record collection and lives alone now his 99 year old Dad died a couple of months ago.

I tried to get his unit fixed and the lockdown caught us out plus they confirmed it was shot.

He lives alone and I’m asking if anyone has an old turntable they could give him ?

Just a thought and a really special treat for this particular man.

Please help if you can , I can arrange courier collection.

Thanks Swanson / Ranui neighbours .., lets try and make this guys day .

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
