We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

The Team from Community News

Hi Auckland,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used your local community paper.

How to recycle broken glass

The Team from Auckland Council

Learn what to do when recycling broken glass. Large chunks are ok, as long as they are from grocery packaging. Always remember when recycling if in doubt, leave it out.

Expression of Interest

Albert from Howick

Hello Neighbours,

I had been conducting free workshops in personal finance for several years. The workshops stopped due the pandemic.

I would like to resume these workshops. It is a comprehensive approach towards managing your personal finance (this is not the run off the mill type of budgeting workshop). Workshop is for anyone from aged 20 (yes, including retirees), runs for 2-hours, and it is free.

Venue and Date: To be confirmed (Date: a day in July).
Note: There is no advice, sales or promotion of products in the workshop.

If you are interested, please message me. Thank you.

Reach out when you like to know more how a street coordinator can help make the street a cohesive living environment?
