Join the rest of the motu on October 28 by taking part in our national earthquake drill and tsunami hīkoi, ShakeOut. Signing up only takes 2 minutes and when you do, you’ll be entered to win a personal emergency grab bag or civil defence wheelie bin kit from NZ Civil Defence.
ShakeOut takes place around the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake:

DROP - down on your hands and knees. This protects you from falling but lets you move if you need to.

COVER - your head and neck (or entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is within a few steps of you). If there is no shelter nearby, cover your head and neck with your arms and hands.

HOLD - on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. If the shaking shifts your shelter around, move with it.

Head to www.shakeout.govt.nz... to sign up today and get involved!

Noisy overnight Road works on Dominion Road expected to last 16 continuous nights

Nanette from Mount Roskill

Extremely noisy, over night road works are happening on Dominion Road and are expected to carry on for the next 14 nights without a break.

Furthermore, they apparently don't have a permit to do this work. Yesterday, I called the Auckland Council after having absolutely no sleep on Sunday night due to these road works. I was informed that the Road work company did not have a permit to do this work and that it is expected to carry on for 16 nights. Auckland council assured me I could contact noise control if they continued to work at nights and they would help sort this out. When the road workers started working the second night (Monday night), I contacted Noise Control as advised and I was informed that there was nothing they could do as the noise was not continuously excessive. However, the noise gets extreme at intermittent times. It feels like toture to have to spend the next 14 nights without sleep. People who work are not able to sleep during the day. Does anyone have any ideas on how this can be sorted out?

It had been planned to take place at the Auckland Domain on December 11. "We delayed making this sad decision for as long as we could, however, we must consider the safety of everyone involved so, of course, it's the right thing to do. "We're really pleased to continue to plan for Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park in Christchurch scheduled for late November and the free-to-air TV broadcast of show highlights in December," she said. Christmas in the Park is an important fundraiser for Youthline. For the last 15 years funds raised at the two events have helped to support over 35,000 young people each year. The outdoor Christmas concert, dubbed "the nation's favourite Christmas party", annually attracts a massive live audience to the Auckland Domain and Christchurch's Hagley Park when friends, families and communities gather to celebrate the start of the Kiwi summer festive season.

The people who live in Ryman villages remain true to themselves, whether that’s continuing with their passion, making the most of every minute, challenging themselves to learn something new, or surrounding themselves with people who like to have fun.
As Lynette, a resident at Edmund Hilary village, says “A lot of people still believe that you're going to a rest home. They don't know the concept of a retirement village. You go there, it's beautiful. You've got facilities. You've got activities. And you don't stop living.”
Retirement is a chapter of life that’s filled with possibility. Choose the lifestyle you want to live and proudly embrace every opportunity. It’s what Ryman residents do.
