As you may have guessed I'm writing this prior to the final and all I can say is "GO THE AB'S" I'm predicting a euphoric New Zealand for four more years to paraphrase George Gregan. As well as the world cup, we also have Labour day, this is generally the time of the year when the market changes gear and moves into selling mode, spring turns into summer, the gardens are looking better, the sun is shining and it's time to move. The numbers of available listings is starting to increase and inevitably the number of buyers will too. As I've mentioned in previous columns, 2011 has seen great improvements in the number of sales in Upper Hutt compared with last year, prices are down but relatively stable and there are occasional bargains to be had but what I would suggest to anyone looking to buy is to take a long term perspective and remember that at some point in the future the property prices will rise again and todays buyers will potentially reap the rewards. Changing tack a tad, I've been writing my musings on the market for the last 4 years and I have met a lot of people who are regular readers, always great for me as I really didn't know if anyone would be even slightly interested in what I have to say, so for those regular readers I have something else to share, I'm delighted to say that on the 29th October I will be getting ma r ried so the last week of October will be doubly memorable for me, a world cup final and a wedding, I love this country☺ If you are thinking of selling your home please call me on the numbers below or contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org alternately fill in your details on my website www.steveslicker.com Kind regards, Steve Slicker (04) 212 6787 0275 661 949 Advertorial Visiting minstrels exchange tunes Merci beaucoup: French dixie and jazz band members reciprocate the Happy Wanderers' entertainment. Local couple John and Helen Fenton were among Happy Wanderers members who entertained Toulouse dixie and jazz band Les Aoc's travel- ling with the French rugby team. The Happy Wanderers, mostly Upper Hutt people, sing and enter- tain but mostly for groups and rest homes. Wellington member Barbara Haines and a neighbour put on a barbecue for the band members who said it was the first time on the tour they had been invited into a New Zealand home. The band attended Sunday's final and were flying home on Monday. Mrs Fenton said the band members were a fabulous group but she was relieved their rugby team did not win the Rugby World Cup. School's jubilee This weekend there will be a combined jubilee for St Brendan's School and Our Lady of Grace Church at Heretaunga. The parish is celebrating 60 years and the school 50. The celebrations begin on Friday with a children's mass at the church, followed by a powhiri, cake cutting and shared lunch at the school. Guests will include several former principals. In the evening there will be a mix and mingle for those associated with the school. A formal dinner and cake cutting for the school and parish will be held on Saturday evening. On Sunday the Archbishop of Wel- lington, Father John Dew, will officiate at a mass of thanksgiving at the church at 10am. Website: stbren dans.school.nz.
