Neighbor behaving badly !

Marie from Howick

So today my neighbor plowed in reverse through the fence in between our properties narrowly missing my daughters car, to my disbelief he then checks the back of his car for damage and just drives off and goes about his business leaving the broken fencing panels across our driveway blocking our cars in.
He does return a short time later, but no acknowledgement of the destruction he has just caused, no apology, no attempt to rectify the situation in anyway, just ignoring the fact and walking away.
So I asked him so what are you doing about the fencing his reply was "well its rotten anyway". ( rotten or not WTF... )
I said to him you will need to make arrangements to have the fencing moved as it is blocking our driveway / car, his reply was telling me
"well you FN move it then", both rude and uncalled for.
Not very neighborly thats for sure.
Sadly I ended up having to get my son to help me lift the pieces back over, a bit of a struggle but we got there.
I did notify the police and the landlord.

Variety fears for kids this winter.

Variety

Ben sleeps on a mouldy mattress on the floor. 1 in 10 Kiwi kids in our poorest communities don’t have their own bed, which puts them at risk from life-threatening illnesses like rheumatic fever.

During winter, a bed is a sanctuary from the cold – and diseases that come with it. A bed for Ben, and tamariki like him, would mean a warm and good night's sleep so they can stay healthy and concentrate at school.

With your support, we aim to provide 1,100 children with beds and warm bedding. Donate today to provide beds and bedding for Kiwi kids.

'We are so sad': Parents of missing French teen Eloi Rolland search for answers in NZ

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

French teen Eloi Rolland, who has been missing in Auckland since March 2020, told his family he wanted to bring them to New Zealand.

More than two years after his disappearance, his parents Thierry and Catherine Rolland have finally arrived from France.

They do not know what happened to their son, and they’re desperate for answers.

“We don’t know what’s happened,” Catherine said. “We realise he is perhaps in another place.”

But the couple remain hopeful that Eloi is alive and well and said they would always be there for him.

Kombucha Scoby

Paul & Swee from Northpark

Hi Neighbours
I'm looking for a piece of scoby so I can start making kombucha again.
I stopped for a while and my scoby died (rip).
If you have a bit to start me off again, I'd really appreciate it.
