Would you take up flexible working if it was offered - or have you already?

Necklace lost on Lambton Quay - please help find it!

Lola from Brooklyn

This might be a long shot but I thought I'd try it! I lost a necklace on Lambton Quay last Monday, 18 November, somewhere between Woodward Street and Les Mills gym. It's a small, round, white gold pendant on a fine chain.

This might be a long shot but I thought I'd try it! I lost a necklace on Lambton Quay last Monday, 18 November, somewhere between Woodward Street and Les Mills gym. It's a small, round, white gold pendant on a fine chain.
Maybe you picked it up; maybe someone you know picked it up; maybe you heard someone talking about finding a necklace; maybe you work in the area and it was handed in by a passer-by... I would be really grateful for any information as it has huge sentimental value. If you think you know something please get in touch. Thank you :)

Trigger Warning! Dead Chicken Found

Samah from Wadestown

Have you lost a chicken? Or did you drop a dead one outside our house, thinking it was one of ours? We came out to find someone's dead chicken on our path today and it hasn't been there long. No sign of a struggle/feathers around so it really seems like someone else has just dropped it … View moreHave you lost a chicken? Or did you drop a dead one outside our house, thinking it was one of ours? We came out to find someone's dead chicken on our path today and it hasn't been there long. No sign of a struggle/feathers around so it really seems like someone else has just dropped it there. If it was your friend and you'd like to collect it and bury it, we are at 88 Cecil Rd. Otherwise, if I don't hear from you, we will bury it in the garden. Sorry for your loss.
