Poll: Do you support a sugar tax?

Hi East Auckland,
Looking for TOMMY, NIKKI & ELLA....
this letter and gift for Tommy, Nikki & Ella, has been incorrectly repacked by the postal service into a package I received. If anyone knows this family please message me. I would love to return this to them.

Swimming warnings at Auckland beaches

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.

The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.

It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
Check here to see where's safe to swim.
