Photo: RNNZ /Maja Burry Sales data from the small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) broker, ABC Business Sales, shows the average price of a small business is $653,000, compared with a house which is $725,000. It indicated the average annual return from a business was six times higher than that from a house, at $215,000 compared with $35,000. ABC managing director, Chris Small, said young people overlooked buying businesses because of the strong culture around home ownership in New Zealand. He acknowledged that owning a business was not as straightforward as owning a property but he said that the risk is worth the reward. “The business returns are six times greater than a residential property, so are the risks six times greater? Absolutely not. “[There] are many professional business advisors out there ...

Auckland DHB has now joined the programme, Waitematā and Counties Manukau DHBs are already providing the service. Health Minister Andrew Little says achieving access to bowel screening for the highest risk group of people across Tāmaki Makaurau is a great milestone. “We’re now close to three quarters of the way to achieving our goal of nationwide coverage by the end of next year. That’s worth marking,” Andrew Little says. “This programme is already saving hundreds of lives a year, it will save thousands more over years to come.  “Getting tested every two years means there’s a better chance of catching any problems quickly.

They have both been valued and active members ever since. Chris joined the Committee in 1998, and held various positions including that of Treasurer, until he took on the yoke of President in 2003- a position he served with great integrity, commitment and grace. Those were halcyon days for WASLA, with the Sri Lankan community in Perth coming together in great numbers for regular celebrations and events including dances and food fairs, which were hugely successful. The events were organised with meticulous attention to detail, and reflected the style and grace of the man at the helm and the woman who so efficiently and generously assisted and supported him at every turn. Chris was greatly influential in galvanising WASLA support for Romeish Fernando who represent Australia ...
