Sending Love Christmas Cards for the Elderly

Lindsay Upton from Manukau East Council of Social Services (MECOSS)

Christmas may be weeks away, but it’s not too early to start thinking about the numerous elderly folk who may find themselves alone this festive season.
MECOSS is putting out a call to the east Auckland community, for contributions of Christmas cards penned with hand written messages.
A collection drop-box will be set up in the foyer of the All Saints’ Community Centre, 30 Cook Street, Howick, every day between 8:00am and 4:00pm from Monday 5 November until Friday 7 December.
Then before Christmas, the 'Sending Love' charity will distribute the cards you've crafted, to people in our community who’re elderly and living alone, or who're confined to an age-care facility.

What do you think about pets riding on trains?

Mandy Te Reporter from Eastern Courier

Hi neighbours, pets will be able to ride on trains from as early as June. Auckland Transport has agreed with train operator Trans Dev, to a three month trial. Pets will only be allowed on during off-peak hours and would have to be contained. How do you feel about this? Do you support this decision?
