We Say/You Say: How will you be supporting businesses this summer?

Abby Irwin Reporter from North Shore Times

Kia ora neighbours,

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced a $37 million recovery fund for Auckland businesses this morning, which will include 100,000 free vouchers to visit Auckland Council facilities, attractions, and venues.

The goal is to encourage Aucklanders to "rediscover the best of local businesses and visitor attractions" by visiting places like the zoo and museums, or attend summer events organised by community and cultural groups.

What business or attraction would you spend your voucher on this summer? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the North Shore Times.

We want to understand what you think about Aotearoa New Zealand’s increasing multicultural society and the benefits and challenges that it brings and to say thanks for completing the survey, you can go in the draw to win a share of prizes. T&Cs apply.

Are you happy about the loss of 8,000 planted native seedlings?

Todd Niall Reporter from Community News

Kia ora Neighbours, A contested decision by politicians on the Upper Harbour Local Board to mow down 8,000 native plants and young trees, could bring a hefty bill. Council staff reject that there was a mistake in the planting, and now there could be a big bill. What do you think ?
