Web words: the Maitland Mercury stories that had you talking this week

No availability will force them outside Newcastle! Win for Newcastle and surrounding suburbs. It’s not like small availability and big events don’t rise prices across the country.

Many times I've heard how these businesses will recoup lost revenue from preparation works. Well if they can't charge more how do they recoup.

Jarrad Priestley 

OMG this is the most wonderful news. I don't personally know either of them but I am crying with happiness. The best of luck to you both, Alex and Teigan. How beautiful! Congratulations.

Raquel Hunter

Lots of people like us only know you from the Knights and do not know you personally. We are so thrilled for you both and wish you a happy and loving marriage and hope all your dreams come true.

Jennifer and Allan.

Have seen one in the past 12 months in the wetlands/waterways behind Scott St Seaham. Thought it was a spoonbill at first but as I got closer I realised it was a Jabiru. Pretty shocked to find it near a small cluster of houses, either way I was very lucky to be at the right place right time. They’re amazing.

You’re very lucky you still have him. It’s just a little hurdle to cross, after beating those odds he will be super star in no time.
