Employment issues targeted
A free public information workshop will be held by the Citizens Advice Bureau covering the rights and responsibilities of employees and employers and how to deal with problems in the workshop.
The session was being conducted after a steady stream of employment problems had been reported to the Queenstown bureau.
The workshop, which will also cover finding and applying for job and immigration and visa requirements, would be held at the St Peters Church Hall on Earl St on March 20 between noon and 2pm.
The annual Kelvin Peninsula community gathering, which will include a free sausage sizzle, tennis, croquet, bouncy castle, threelegged and sack races, will be held next Saturday at Jardine Park from 3pm. Organiser Chris Mackenzie said the event was a great opportunity to get together and meet with fellow peninsula residents and barbecues will be available.
Funding available from gambling proceeds
The Lion Foundation will run a community funding forum in Wanaka on Tuesday. Relationships manager Marcus Reynolds says it is a chance for people to learn how to apply for foundation funding. The funding is derived from the proceeds of gambling on gaming machines.
