Shop is open again...

Frances from Masterton District

Hi folks... hope life for you all, is getting back to "normal" again - whatever that might be.......... and, yes my wee shop is open once again. I have new stock on shelves of most products, and working on getting new signage for out front. If the sign is out - then shop is open - until 6th June open from 9. After that date more likely open from noon. Now selling Mountain Gold Manuka Honey. Photos are of a few of the products on the shelves.
First Honey plasters, and Manuka Lozenges are on special. Website is - www.everwell... . I will soon be back working elsewhere - part time once again - so shop cannot be open all 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.

Generation Pandemic: How has Covid-19 affected your children?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

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 kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, 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.

Looking for firewood

Justin from Gladstone

Looking for a load of firewood to be delivered today, we’ve just run out and the house is freezing without the fire going. If anyone is selling any wood that can be delivered today that would be great, cheers.
