Please, on your walk today, DO NOT USE the community book swap boxes. They are a Coronavirus transmission risk. Our local libraries are closed for the same reason. I contacted Akl Council who say they are not administered by them. I spoke to the Govt Healthline and I reached out the Police to see if they could assist by locating and putting signs on these boxes. I'm not sure what will happen... it's all too hard right now I guess, as these agencies are so busy, but please be mindful... DON'T TOUCH THE BOXES OR THE BOOKS! Don't swap your own books - or anything else! - with your neighbours either. Take care.

This photo shows the one between Garnet Rd Cafe and Westmere Primary School.

Orange clivia plants - FREE

Bridget from Grey Lynn

Hi Neighbours,
We have about 30 orange clivia plants that we've just pulled out of the garden and are available for pick-up outside 37 Schofield Street, Grey Lynn. Small and medium plants which if you settle into your garden now will probably reward you with lovely blooms come late winter/spring. Great for mass planting, and part-shade/ shade areas, flowers good for picking. Enjoy :-)

The Art of a Club Sandwich

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

In New Zealand, business entertaining often occurs at drinks party events with elegant finger food hosted in the office reception or board room. The menu must be varied, with some vegetarian and gluten-free options and offer a mixture of fresh and crunchy palate-tempting snacks.

The Classic Club Sandwich remains one of these 'comfort dishes' that is ever popular but it needs to hold together so that the components don't slip alway and fall on your special jacket or silk dress.

As part of our Canapes and Drinks Party Cuisine module, we make a classic club with the test being - can you cut it in a triangle shape, on its side, and place on a platter, without the sandwich collapsing...
