Local Muscle Needed

Person required for labouring work on Puhoi Property (weather dependant) approximately 5-8 hours a week.

Duties would include upgrading the lifestyle block of 26acres, in the form of digging for fruit trees to be planted, removing rubbish, other digging for shallow drainage, general duties which come up with one who does this work could include cleaning stock yards, weed spraying, weedeating, mowing front lawns etc etc.

The person must have done general outside work like lifting etc to be fit for the required work which would be $20 and for the right person could become a casual job negotiable  between both parties.

I would prefer the applicant to work during the week but may compromise for some weekend work.

There a lots of people around who help out, and it’s currently penciled in to run in the hall at the end of November…if interested please email me or ph.4220478

Snail on Road

Hi all,

I am “expecting” a relocatable house to be transported to our land in Ahuroa Valley Rd, Thursday [postponed from Wednesday] night. This may cause some disruption/holdups for early workers especially those who travel over the glorious hill in between Ahuroa and Puhoi, the house movers have told me they are meant to be off the road by 5.00am, but i have heard, and am beginning to discover myself, that house movers aren’t particularly reliable or timely. So as a heads up, they may be on the roads later than 5.00am . This move has been scheduled for the last five weeks and they keep pushing it back, i didn’t want to post until I had a definite date, and i have just had a call from them saying tomorrow or the next night. I hope this doesn’t cause too much disruption for anyone, and i hope i’m not writing the same message in two weeks time.

Please if anyone needs to ask anything, post here or call me 02108184709
