So, on Tuesday 8th May, the next OKE Growing A Future Working Bee will be taking place at Papatoetoe South Primary school. We've been very fortunate to receive funds from Fonterra Grassroots Fund to cover some of the costs of the working bee and once again we'll have Bunnings on board.
We need more volunteers to help build the garden, so if you're free, please do come along. Everything kicks off at 8.45am and the garden should be all built by 3.30pm! See you there :)
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.
