Will you be striking for better pay in Auckland?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Will you be taking to the streets in your community to strike for better pay? The nurses union has "strongly rejected" a DHB pay and conditions offer and is seeking urgent mediation. That means strikes scheduled for July could still go ahead.

Do you support the …View more
Hi neighbours,

Will you be taking to the streets in your community to strike for better pay? The nurses union has "strongly rejected" a DHB pay and conditions offer and is seeking urgent mediation. That means strikes scheduled for July could still go ahead.

Do you support the nurses' stance? What do you think of the latest pay offer? Let us know in the replies. Click here to read more. (If commenting, please add "NFP/not for print" if you do not want your images/comments used on Stuff).

Should dogs be on a leash at beaches and parks?

Mandy Te Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours! After a series of dog attacks, areas like parks and beaches where they can be leash-free are under the spotlight. Auckland Council will review this later in the year. Some owners think this is unfair. What are your thoughts? Do you support having tighter rules?

Gathering all willing workers. It's a great project, with lovely people turning up each week, come along.

We (still) need help creating blankets to keep children warm this winter. The children are a group of approx 250 from the Sandringham/Mt Roskil area, our locals! Who could do with a helping hand.

BLANKETS
Hand stitching together two layers of fabric, attaching a Felt animal cut out. Stamping cards, cutting fabric, sitting talking with a beautiful group of people. Setting up and tidying away our equipment.

WHO.
We are a group of about 9 people so far but as winter sets in, we really need to double our numbers. All ages and ethnicity.

HOW.
Hand stitching, no machines, no experience needed. Easy for anyone willing to try. All fabrics have been donated so far.

WHEN.
Every Thursday night. 6.30 to 8.30pm ( turn up at any time in that slot for as long as you can manage, any time you offer is appreciated)

WHERE.
YMCA Mt Albert. 773 New North Road.

WHY.
For two reasons.
First, to make life a little easier for theses kids by making them something they need.
Secondly, to bring community together, increasing our sense of belonging and imbuing these blankets with our love and care.

SEE YOU THERE, no need to make contact...just turn up ❤️

Hi there,
As most of you probably know, there has been a lot happening in the Auckland Speedway scene in the last few days and debate still is going on whether the future of Auckland Speedway is on the right track (see what I did there?) While these decisions are being contemplated in conference rooms by "old people", there are some kids who are desperately trying to get into the sport.

I would like to introduce you to my son, 10 year old Alex Twiname, a young man with a dream. (This photo is of him having a go in a club car). He is saving all his pocket money and raising funds to go speedway racing. He even has his little sister helping him, (self-appointed manager, she has a bum-bag) out selling cookies every weekend, and has a Pledge Me page set up.

I wonder if we can get his message out to the Neighbourly Family and get some pledges happening?! No amount too small!!

If you want to see what the real future of Auckland Speedway is all about, it is right here with kids like Alex, and you can be a part of it!

Here is his Pledge Me page

Thanks so much for reading!
Cheers,
Jo
