Hi neighbours. A North Shore family preparing to take their daughter for surgery in the United States are facing a raft of expensive, coronavirus-related hurdles.

Four-year-old Lydia Golding, from Hauraki, was born with proximal femoral focal deficiency (PFFD), a condition which left her with an unformed hip and shortened femur. By maturity, the difference in height is expected to reach about 24cm.

Determined to make their daughter’s dream of walking on two feet come true, parents Hamish and Lauren Golding have remortgaged their home to help pay for bone-lengthening surgery in Florida, which will cost them $340,000 NZD.

However, the coronavirus pandemic has made an already daunting trip even more scary and expensive.

Coronavirus is more of a reason to sort out the stadium

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, It's easy to say things shouldn't be done because we need to focus on Covid-19 elimination, but maybe that's more of an argument to sort out the stadium plan. Read the story below.

Hello Ladies,

As many of you have seen, I have started a Lash and Brow studio. At the moment, I offer a Classic Lash set with a very specific map. A map? That's lash artist speak for the pattern we use to decide which length goes where.

I would like to test a new lash map out and I'm looking for models who would be willing to give it a try and be happy with before and after photos which I will publish on social media. Your lashes need to be healthy as I will be applying a longer length. The set is valued at $129 but since I'm in test phase, I'm charging my 2-week fill price of $65. Please click on the link below if you are keen. Only 7 spots up for grabs.
Please message me if you're interested.
Thanks
Taryn

Poll: Do you want to see more car parks at the Albany and Constellation park and rides?

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Transport authorities hope Auckland's fast-filling park and ride facilities will become more like “kiss and rides”, where partners drop their spouses off and seal it with a kiss, rather than needing to park.

Transport Minister Phil Twyford made the comment when asked if there were enough car parks at the Albany park and ride to cope with increased patronage as a result of the northern busway extension, due to be completed about 2022.

“If you rely solely on park and rides, then you just actually increase congestion around the stations. Ultimately, in some stations you’ll see ‘kiss and rides’, where spouses will drop their partner off at drop off zones.”

Would you like to see more car parks built at the Albany and Constellation park and rides?
