What do you think - is the message getting through to dog owners?

Will you be attending Auckland's pride march?

Melanie Earley Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours, a year on from a controversial decision to replace New Zealand's biggest Pride parade with a march, the organisers say there's no plan to return to the status quo.
Instead of corporate sponsors parading down Ponsonby Rd, since 2019, members of the LGBTQI community now march from Albert Park to Aotea Square. Will you be attending the march this year?

Dumped Building Rubbish - Shelly Beach Rd

Paul from Saint Marys Bay

A load of building and domestic waste has been dumped on the footpath outside 83 Shelly Beach Rd. Male, believed to be in a grey Audi station wagon was seen unloading rubbish bags. Unfortunately, no rego taken. Council have been very slow in responding, despite logging the dumping as "Critical," saying it would be collected in 1 -2 hours. They have now tagged it as "Under Investigation" but say it could be up to 5 days before it is removed. So much for their claims of taking strong and swift action against illegal dumpers. Beware, this dumper may well strike again.
