Poll: Do you support temporary alcohol bans at Auckland concerts?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi Auckland neighbours,

Check out this story by Ripu Bhatia:

Police are seeking an alcohol ban in a bid to prevent possible incidents of disorder near an upcoming music festival featuring Benee and Fat Freddy's Drop.

Waitematā Local Board will vote next Tuesday on whether to adopt a temporary alcohol ban for the Outerfields 2021 festival held at Western Springs Stadium on March 6.

Auckland City District Police senior sergeant Geoff Medland wrote to Auckland Council chief executive officer Jim Stabback on January 21 requesting the ban, which would apply to areas surrounding the venue, rather than at the venue itself.

Ross’ retirement saw the beginning of his musical journey where his passion quickly evolved from making music, to crafting guitars. It all started when Ross and some mates joined a music group where the camaraderie and togetherness were just as important as the music.

Living in a Ryman village, Ross can continue living life to the full in his retirement because they are places where you don’t retire from life, you find a new way to live .

Should councils stop using glyphosate?

Katy Jones Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Environmental activists recently protested outside Nelson City Council, calling for the council to stop using the weedkiller, glyphosate, which they said harms bees. Glyphosate (contained in 90 products in New Zealand, including Roundup) is used by farmers and ecologists alike, but some scientists in New Zealand say we don't know enough its long term effects on the environment, and it should classified as hazardous. What do you think?

They had a vision for their property, but they also had three floods in 20 years. That didn't stop them pursuing the garden of their dreams though.
