Lianne Sloan from New Lynn Lions Club

The New Lynn Lions have unfortunately had to cancel this year's Parade. Covid-19 has had an impact on businesses and local groups resulting in limited commitment to date. The Parade also requires a reasonable financial commitment both from our Lions Club and outside Grants and Donations. This year we were not successful with a Community Grant and without this support the decision has been made to cancel.

All going well we will be back in 2021 with a bigger and better Parade so hopefully we will see you all then. Please continue to watch our Facebook and Neighbourly sites for further updates. For any future Parade inquiries please email Noel at mountjoy@slingshot.co.nz.

We hope your Christmas is an enjoyable time.

Poll: Do you support a rates rise of 5 per cent in Auckland?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

Aucklanders will see their rates bills soar 5 per cent to help counteract a $1 billion fall in council revenue over the next four years.

The one-off hike, up from a planned 3.5 per cent increase, will add $36 to the rates bill of an average value home before annual increases return to the previous path of 3.5 per cent rises.

The proposed increase is included in the update of Auckland Council's 10-year budget, which starts in July.

Please put NFP if you do not want your comments used by Stuff.

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, Auckland Council and the Government have declared climate emergencies. But the proposed 10 year budget, spruns a bolder action programme that would cost 44 cents a week more per ratepayer. Do you agree? Read the story below:
