Cyclists will have additional spots to lock up their bikes with new facilities installed as part of a cycleway trial.

Project WAVE is a $1 million cycleway trial in the Viaduct Harbour to connect the Quay and Nelson Street cycleways that could have over a thousand daily users.

Auckland Transport (AT) confirmed two new bike parking facilities able to accommodate 16 bikes have been installed as part of the trial, taking the total number of bike parks along the cycleway to 56.

The project is opposed by a group of residents and business owners.

The two new bike parking facilities are located on Customs Street West between Market Place and Lower Hobson Street. One is located near the Tepid Baths, and one is near O’Hagan’s bar.

The area now has enough space for around 56 bikes, as there were already existing facilities to accommodate 40 bikes before Project WAVE was implemented.

AT spokeswoman Natalie Polley said there are also numerous new bike parking facilities on Quay Street and in the new square as part of the Downtown project.

"That doesn’t even take into account bike parking at the ferry terminal, the AT Downtown Carpark and at many other locations on the Viaduct,” she said.

Oceania has always believed in better and so does Meadowbank’s new Care Manager, Suzette Vorster.

Having worked in Aged Care for several years, Suzette’s favourite thing about her work has remained the same – giving back to those who’ve done so much for Aotearoa. “Our residents have a lifetime of knowledge and have worked hard in often difficult times. I see it as such a privilege to be in a position to lead a team of people who are passionate about caring for them.”

Suzette’s recipe for great care is simple. “Great care means meeting a resident’s daily needs with empathy and warmth – to deliver the kind of care that anyone would want their Mum or Dad to have.”

She’s excited to take on a new challenge in our vibrant village beside Orakei Basin. “Meadowbank is a beautiful site– it’s a place anyone would feel proud to live in and a place families enjoy visiting. Our Care Suites provide a feeling of independence within the comfort and security of exceptional 24/7, round-the-clock care.” And her vision for Meadowbank goes beyond brick and mortar. “The heart of it is the people – staff who provide empathy and love, and residents who live their years to the fullest.”

To learn more about our Care Suites with Rest Home and Hospital level care, get in touch with Suzette today.

A good House Painter

Hi Neighbours,
I've just got some quotes for exterior house painting of an old villa. These are large when you add in the scaffolding cost - which will be extra. Can you recommend a good painter?

Did you use to belong to the 1st Auckland Cavell Girl Guide Unit?

If so, the brigade wants to hear from you!

The 1st Auckland Cavell Girl Guide Unit turns 100 in July and is still seeking old girls to join the celebrations.

One of the first girl guide units to be formed in Auckland, the group is gearing up to commemorate its centenary.

A social afternoon is planned for July 3, kicking off at 2pm with historic guiding activities such as knot tying and making arm slings.

Guests will be treated to afternoon tea and a birthday cake before photographs are taken of the girls.

The day will end with a singalong around the campfire.

The next day, a church parade will march through St Andrews Church, Epsom, where the unit has been meeting since 1921.

Parishioners are invited to a morning tea after the procession.

The unit, initially known as the St Andrew's Peace Scout Group, is believed to be the first guide company which has kept going since it was launched.

It all started when eighteen-year-old Mona Burgin wrote to the Dominion chief scout Colonel Cosgrove, a New Zealand Boer War veteran, asking about Girl Peace Scouts.

He arranged to meet her in Queen St, Auckland and wrote she would recognize him by the red flower in his buttonhole.

Soon after the meeting Burgin formed the troop on July 6.

Girl Peace Scouts wore khaki uniforms and the St Andrews troop wore a red open-ended tie.

In 1923, the Dominion Council became affiliated with the original Girls Guides Association in London.

*Former unit members can email cavellgirlguidesnz@gmail.com for details of the centenary.

Outgoing chair Margi Watson said it had been her privilege to serve the Albert-Eden communities.

"Over this duration we have achieved good outcomes for the area in spite of the challenges COVID-19 brought and I’m proud of the work we have done.

"... I'm looking forward to supporting Lee in her new role and continuing to work with her as deputy chair. "

It is not unusual for local boards to share roles throughout the three-year term, Auckland Council said.

Ailing poplar trees felled: Mt Roskill

A poplar on Mt Roskill's Somerset Rd is destined for the axe.

The tree is set to be removed this week due to deteriorating health.

Another poplar in the street was axed in April to remove the health and safety risk to pedestrians and students from a school nearby.

Puketapapa Local Board chair Julie Fairey said the board was active in supporting planting in the district and knew how much the community valued trees.

“Unfortunately, the state of these two trees on Somerset Rd means we have to remove them sooner than we had hoped.

"The removal will ensure the poplars are looked after as they come to the end of their natural lives and appropriate trees can grow in their space in the future for everyone in the community to enjoy and benefit from.”

We are pleased to offer everyone this free yoga workshop next weekend! 😍 (Saturday the 29th of May, 10:30am - 11:30am).

Yoga is for all - but menstruating women need to adjust their practice over the month, from one menstruation to the next menstruation. In this class, Julia Vajda de Albuquerque will share a specific asana sequence for the period days. Participants will learn what asanas should be avoided during their period, what asanas may help to relieve cramps and abdominal pains, and how to establish a monthly practice to get rid of mood swings of the body and mind and maintain a hormonal balance, as thought by Dr Geeta S. Iyengar.


Email info@womenz.org.nz to register. We have a limited supply of yoga mats that can be used for free at the centre 😊
