Fun-n-gala time! Are you keen to do your bit to improve the health of the Pauatahanui inlet?

Visit our stall at the Pauatahanui School Lamb & Calf Day on Saturday 7 November. Find out how you can improve the health of our waterways in the Pauatahanui area and inlet. Your efforts can boost biodiversity and reduce sediment levels in our streams through erosion control and planting. Staff will be available to offer advice and help find out if your property could get funding assistance.

Bring along a weed from your garden and swap it for a free native plant. And loads of fun for the kids! We will have a catchment model at our stall for kids to experiment and learn about sediment, streams, gullies and wetlands. See you soon.

Why not treat yourself to a bloke’s day out for a grooming WOF? Just be wary of the barbershop – between the bay rum oil, hot towels, banter, and leather chairs, you won’t want to leave!

Bevis, a resident at Ryman’s Anthony Wilding Village, recently received a gentleman’s makeover. The day began at the barbershop where Bevis and his barber Kohl shared plenty of laughs. Next up, a personal stylist helped Bevis select clothes he looked and felt great in. Being pampered isn’t the norm for Bevis but based on his smile, we’re confident he loved every minute.

Hi team! Thank you so much for your support of First Rung, our first podcast!
The launch last week went even better than we'd hoped. I'm over the moon.
I thought I'd drop by to let you know this week's episode, Location, Location, Location, is out now.
Just like the first one, it's packed with tips, advice and anecdotes from experts and home owners on every aspect of buying your first home. It also comes with a chance to win a $500 Resene prize pack.
In episode 2, we talk to a first time buyer who moved from one end of the country to the other for a chance to get on the ladder, hear about apartments as a viable first home option and an expert gives us some tips on how to choose the right lawyer.
We all know buying a home is one of the toughest, most daunting things we might ever do as adults, so it doesn't hurt to get some expert advice and support. That's what we wanted to give you with First Rung.
Give episode 2 a listen and let us know what you think - and I hope you're all in to win that crackin' prize pack!
