Hi Neighbours, while waiting for the next Rugby World Cup match would you jump on board a real life Mario Kart?
When we heard that it was possible to experience real life Mario Kart in Tokyo with Maricar, we just had to visit. Join us as we dress up as Mario, jump in our go-kart and cruise through Tokyo. We speed past Roppongi, Tokyo Tower and the super famous Shibuya crossing. We didn't get the chance to throw any green shells or banana peels but this is definitely one of the most fun experiences in Tokyo.

Hi Neighbours, Auckland Council and the Government have declared climate emergencies. But the proposed 10 year budget, spruns a bolder action programme that would cost 44 cents a week more per ratepayer. Do you agree? Read the story below:
Aucklanders will see their rates bills soar 5 per cent to help counteract a $1 billion fall in council revenue over the next four years.
The one-off hike, up from a planned 3.5 per cent increase, will add $36 to the rates bill of an average value home before annual increases return to the previous path of 3.5 per cent rises.
The proposed increase is included in the update of Auckland Council's 10-year budget, which starts in July.

All seven council-owned splashpads across Tāmaki Makaurau will be open over the summer, despite water restrictions in place due to the drought.
Meanwhile, locals will be pinged for using a hose without the correct nozzle.
The council says splashpads recycle a high percentage of water, and the centres themselves have made significant water savings in the last nine months.
Do you support council turning on splashpads in the drought?
