Acacia Cove Village - Halloween Party

Acacia Cove Village

The end of October was a busy time for the Staff and Residents at Acacia Cove Village.

On the 30th we hosted another successful open day and treated our guests to a tour of our beautiful facility, showed them around some of our stunning Villas, and ended the day with an amazing lunch.

We ended October with an exciting Halloween Party, hosted by our lovely members of the Social Committee. A night filled with great company, good food and some scary-dressed residents and family members.

Another night that won’t be easily forgotten.

Which local cafes make the best coffee?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Eastern Courier

Hi neighbours, we all know Kiwis love coffee but a survey has found that Auckland coffee drinkers are more likely to buy their coffee than Kiwis from the regions. A third of Aucklanders buy at least half of their weekly coffees and most preferred a flat white. How often do you buy coffee out? What do you usually order? And which local cafes do you think make the best coffee? Share your thoughts in the comments.

NZ Bus services running as normal from today

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Aucklanders, NZ Bus services have resumed, following six days of driver suspensions affecting approximately 70,000 trips daily. The suspensions came as bus drivers stopped accepting passenger fares, in a bid for better pay work hours. On Thursday, First Union and Tramways withdrew industrial action after Auckland Council got involved with concerns of the suspension's impact on the city's public transport. However, union members and NZ Bus are yet to come to an agreement.
Were you able to catch your normal bus this morning?

Recipe: Shortbread

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

Looking for a Christmas Special Recipe? Try baking our delicious easy Shortbread recipe.

Message:
This classic shortbread recipe is based on one from Edmond's Cookbook and is great to get the kids started on. Most shortbread recipes use caster sugar but I find that beginner cooks have greater success using icing sugar which is quick to cream.

Ingredients
225 g Butter, cut into cubes

225 g Flour

125 g Cornflour

125 g Icing sugar
