Was Neil Stuart Automotive was formed in 1992 in Talfourd Place Waltham – James Holvey worked for Neil for 9 years prior to purchasing the business in November 2009. The building at Talfourd place was destroyed in the February 2011 Canterbury Earthquakes – James quickly decided to make a move to a new premises at 84 Falsgrave St and with the amazing help of friends / clients and family members he was up & running again within 4 weeks of the massive event. State Insurance were flabbergasted how they did it but it all came together so easily – one of the few workshops open and able to serve the public during this terrible time.
The quality of childcare has a direct impact on a child’s ability to learn, to build healthy relationships, and to become the best they can be. In-home childcare allows children the ability to experience a warm nurturing home environment with one special person. This warm, sensitive and responsive relationship, not only gives children a sense of security but also stimulates brain development and leads to better cognitive, behavioural and social skills. It really is the next best thing to your children being at home with you.
Every child deserves quality education from the start!

I am not too sure how many of you would have noted May the fourth as a special day. But it has to be one of my favourite days of the year… because it’s STAR WARS DAY!
In the past thirty years or so movies have changed from a lovely little story that was usually viewed once or twice in the cinema… To these monstrous money-making machines that enable fans the privilege of not only coming home with you in DVD form (to watch endlessly in absolute bliss), but also in the form of other types of merchandise from games and clothing to figurines and even Darth Vader spatulas (to make sure your pancakes don’t succumb to the dark side).
As I indulged in my celebratory Star Wars watching marathon, it got me thinking about wether the creators of Star Wars had any inclination of the cult status it would achieve thirty seven years after it’s first release. It’s quite exciting to think that there are businesses are out there, managed by people who are passionate about what they do (just like George Lucas) that are on the brink of ultimate success, but they just don’t know it yet!
For all of the Star Wars fans out there… may the force be with you.
