Award winning master builder Jennian Homes Waiarapa is the in the final stages of preparing their new show home for opening in historic Greytown.

The three bedroom home is located a stone’s throw from the main draw card of Greytown, the Victorian Architecture and Heritage buildings which line the streets, leading the town to be named amongst the prettiest in the North Island.

Greytown remains a popular weekend and holiday destination for many New Zealanders, allowing Managing Director of Jennian Homes Waiarapa Gareth Norris to showcase his award winning homes to those looking at retreating to the “fruit bowl of the Waiarapa”.

Mr Norris is the current Jennian Homes franchisee of the year, having also recently expanded his portfolio to include the Wellington franchise.

He says that the Greytown show home is a jewel in the crown of his Waiarapa franchise and looks forward to sharing the home’s splendour with the public on 12th December.

“The Greytown home is a beautiful reflection of what the Waiarapa region is about. We wanted to create a home that is modern as well as paying homage to the history of the town. I think we have achieved a nice balance with what we have created, it is finished in a modern way, but we have included a few Victorian aspects to honour Greytown’s past”.

The doors to the show home open on 12 December at 10am. Opening hours will be 10am to 4pm Wednesday through Sunday.

Gordon Campbell: On Drone Strikes And Judith Collins‘ Last Stand

The news that a New Zealand citizen was killed last November in a US drone attack in Yemen brings the drones controversy closer to home.

To the US, drones are a legitimate response to the threat posed by the al Qaeda organisation and its franchisees... To the US, the drones carry the added advantage of not putting US troops at risk on the ground, and minimises the need for putting them in large numbers in bases in the countries concerned, always a politically sensitive point.

The counter-argument, well articulated by security analyst Paul Buchanan on RNZ this morning, is that this particular drone attack can be said to amount to an extra-judicial execution of a New Zealand citizen by one of our military allies, in circumstances where the person concerned posed no threat to New Zealand’s domestic security.
