A So many projects - so little time. Kiwis love summer, and DIY is part and parcel of the pleasure for many of us.

On top of the DIY (and is many cases, because of it) there’s the traditional seasonal increase in buying, selling and borrowing activity.

For more than eight years UP has been providing great summer reading for people across the Bay of Plenty, catching them at their best, when they have the time and inclination to get things done.

We get the property message out from Waihi Beach to Whakatane, Rotorua and Taupo.

Now’s the time to settle back a bit. It’s okay to take it easy while you catch UP with developments.

All the season's best,
Paul Dykes, Managing Editor
