Rental accommodation wanted

I recently moved to Puhoi and currently living in temporary accommodation. I enjoy the vibe of this community and would like to find a more permanent living situation here.
I am a mature, health professional working in the Auckland and Rodney districts, and a musician. I have been a home owner and also have excellent references from past landlords.
I am looking for a one or two-bedroom place, preferably unfurnished or partly furnished as I have a reasonable amount of ‘stuff’. However, I will consider all options, a barn, a long-term house-sit or flatmate situation. I do require access to internet as I run my own business and prefer a semi-rural setting.
I have skills which include gardening and animal care and spent many years living on a self-sufficient block of land in the Wairarapa. I am responsible, tidy and an environmentalist so you can be assured your property and animals will loved.
If you know of something that may fit my requirements I would be really grateful for any suggestions or leads. I am available to move anytime between now and November.

Shifty Characters Around

[via Sorrell]

Just letting you know that Wendy English called to advise us that there are shifty characters about – the same ones that stole our tree ladder two years ago. Group of Samoan men driving up to houses and asking if people want tree work done. Basically casing out homes for burglaries. White double cab ute, Wendy has the rego, but can’t get through to police. We just want to let people know. I tried to get hold of Judith so she could spread the word, but no luck. Perhaps a word of caution in the newsletter?
regards

Watercare urges Aucklanders to reduce water use

Water treatment at Watercare’s Ardmore plant has been slowed down to manage the amount of silt coming into the plant in water from its dams. As a result, Watercare is asking Aucklanders to reduce their water use by 20 litres (two buckets) per day. Read more on Watercare’s website.
