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

Abby Irwin Reporter from Western Leader

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 Western Leader.

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 ?

Donations need for Tonga

Durba from Avondale

Hi friends,
Sorry for the late notice but just found out that my neighbour has a 20ft container outside her house due to leave Tonga tomorrow Friday 28/1/22 afternoon. They have collected substantial goods but could do with more. They are looking for household goods, clothing, linen, water and non-perishable food. You can drop off at 22 Kelston St New Lynn. Please let your friends know.
Thank you.
