    Interesting
    so what are 999 couples going to do for jobs in Tokoroa ?
    Aren't they closing down the mills ?

    Maybe it is a new retirement centre, perhaps we should look at building a retirement village there !

    They'll take the jobs created by the 13,000 other people flocking there.

    Speaking of smaller towns I was advised today that Wanganui, total population of around 40K, has 900 houses for sale at the moment. (894 on Trademe)

    And Palmerston North (pop over 80000) has only 500 houses on trade me (down from 630 6 weeks ago). And only 180 open days listed in todays paper. Property press is also very thin these days and agents are looking for listings as they say they are short of stock. One medium sized (15 agents) agency claimed 30 sales in Feb

    Sawmills -Kinleith - Putaruru etc

    (I spent my varsity holidays as a sparkies apprentice at the Putaruru mill many years ago, but haven't been back for years, so if you told me the mills closed down years ago I would not be surprised)

    One mill closed in Putaruru last December - about 200 lost jobs.

    A lot were employed at Kinleith.
