Hi, I'm a student completing my Master's degree at The University of Waikato. Due to the lockdown and restrictions, I had to change my project entirely to ensure that I'd be able to complete the project and submit my thesis in Feb 2021.

My project is exploring attitudes towards travel before and after the COVID-19 restrictions. I need people currently in New Zealand or Australian who hold a valid restricted or full licence. The questionnaire takes roughly 15-25 minutes and I really appreciate everyone who participates :)

Thanks in advance, Francene Thomas.

Congratulations to Bill Hill - winner of the 2020 Long Service Award!
In 1956 Bill had a serious accident and was so grateful for the assistance of The Order of St John he decided he would give back to the organisation. He joined in 1977 as a volunteer, and for 42 years has undertaken many roles, the latest being Health Shuttle Driver. Bill loves all people, regardless of age, ethnicity, etc and always treats everyone with respect, caring and friendliness. It is safe to say that any debt Bill felt he owed to St John has been well and truly paid back.
Congratulations Bill! and thanks to Seasons Magazine who have provided Bill's prize.

Consider using the school holidays to get Upcycling with the smaller members of your household - or use the next rainy day to drag out the paint and your creativity!
