Sandy from Auckland Central

Does anyone know if the compost bins mentioned in this article is for Public use? I miss the Compost bins at the corner of Wellesley and Mayoral Drive :-(


If not, anyone know of CBD bin locations?
Many thanks

City centre road closures on New Year's Eve - residents notification

Helen Shaw from Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development

Dear neighbours,

This New Year’s Eve, some roads in the city centre will be closed between 10pm on 31 December and 2am on 1 January 2020 for the safety of those who will celebrate the turn of the decade in the heart of the city.

There are more people living in the city centre than ever before, and it is clear from previous years that the city precinct is a popular choice for locals and visitors to see in the new year.

Last year, Auckland Transport reported that there was heavy vehicle congestion in the city centre on the night and this year’s road closures – including car park arrival and departure within the closed area – are in place to ensure the safety of pedestrians.

Fireworks displays, lasting five minutes, will feature on the stroke of midnight, from the iconic Sky Tower and from a barge near Queens Wharf.

We apologise for any inconvenience these restrictions may cause. Thank you for your support and cooperation during this event. If you require further information, please contact majorevents@aucklandnz.com.

Please see the attached document for further details on the road closures.

Which cafes make the best coffee in your suburb?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours, we all know Kiwis love coffee but a survey has found that Auckland coffee drinkers are more likely to buy their coffee than Kiwis from the regions. A third of Aucklanders buy at least half of their weekly coffees and most preferred a flat white. How often do you buy coffee out? What do you usually order? And which local cafes do you think make the best coffee? Share your thoughts in the comments.
