We are thankful every day for the pleasure of living here. Due to the recession, we had been through many challenging times, and circumstances found us renting while we sorted out the section we had purchased. We investigated many, many options to see if we were able to build and own a home again. We had heard horror stories of hidden costs and delays and difficulties when building. Our research indicated that for quality at a fair cost, Milestone appeared to stand out. So we called in one day, to visit them at their show home. They were welcoming and caring, and answering all our questions. After several more visits and many more questions, we decided to go with them. Little did we know we would have more challenges and delays, nothing to do with Milestone. They were so accommodating, always with us and caring for us, even offering suggestions how to resolve these issues. They had become friends in many ways. Once we were able to start the building of the home, they went about it with care and speed, delivering on every promise, including pricing and completion time. They were generous in attitude and some areas of requests. The end result was the best Christmas present ever ... we were able to shift into a beautiful completed little solid quality home two days before Christmas. We would recommend Milestone Homes, Whangarei, to anyone considering building. We thank the team there so much. And wish them all great successes in their business. They are a well-run, organised and caring team of people, to the benefit of the customers.

FOOTBALL Kerikeri Bay Builders The Club Hosted Tikipunga after a season opening 4-1 win at bream bay last week, Kerikeri wanted to give the home support a victory. The team were missing several key players through injury and numerous reserve players stepped up to the mark. It was an even contest with both teams strong in defence but Tikipunga did manage to break the deadlock with a fortunate goal 20 minutes into the first half. Kerikeri hit back hard down the wings, but were unable to break down the Tikipunga defence with in the first half. After a reshuffle at half time, Kerikeri spent most of the second half camped in Tikipunga’s half but couldn’t find the elusive goal the crowd were craving. Final result Kerikeri 0 Tikipunga 1. Player of the day, Kieran Nagel. Kerikeri reserves won 6- 2 Prems away at Onerahi next Saturday 2.45 kick off, all support much appreciated.
