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.

Poll: Would you prefer costs for services and public facilities (like libraries and pools) to go up, or rates bills to go up?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Pursuing a 0 per cent rates increase will have an "enormous impact" on the Christchurch community, city councillors warn.

A planned $34 million swimming pool and library development in Hornby could be delayed, the cost of a swim could go up and so could library charges, community grants could get the chop, and the New Brighton hot salt water pools could remain closed — everything is being considered to save money, but nothing is likely to be decided without another round of community consultation.

So what do you think? Would you want to pay more for services and public facilities, or would you prefer to have a higher rates bill? Or do you think there's any other way the council should save money? Read more here and tell us what you think in the comments below.

Last night's Eat Well for Less NZ made me think about what we reach for when we need a drink and what we are teaching our kids about staying hydrated.
Energy drinks and classic fizzy drinks contain a whopping amount of sugar, up to 8 teaspoons per can or small bottle. Some drinks contain caffeine, up to the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee in a single can!
We know drinking this much sugar is not good for us and caffeine can lead to sleep disturbances and anxiety. And with such a rush of energy that is short lived, we are left wanting to reach for another quick fix.
Do you want to
* learn how to stop the sugar craving
* stay hydrated and focused without feeling stressed
* make your and your families health a priority
Now is a great time to do something about it. Give me a call or send me a message, learn how to reduce your sugar intake and balance your energy levels throughout the day.
Small changes in your diet can lead to BIG changes in your health
