How can I help - after Christchurch

Jean Harding from English Language Partners West Auckland

Hi Neighbours

Many people are asking how they can help our Muslim neighbours to show solidarity after the horrendous events in Christchurch. One answer could be to train with us to volunteer to teach English to refugees in their homes. It is not just English - you may teach someone how to talk to their children's teachers, or how to catch a bus, or make an appointment. There is a huge need in West Auckland. Please check our website www.englishlanguage.org.nz... or call on 8277882.

Poll: Should fireworks be banned?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland skies will soon be alight with fireworks displays.

With Guy Fawkes looming, the event sparks ongoing debate over the use of fireworks.

Auckland Council and a range of national organisations have renewed calls to ban the private use and sale of fireworks after a parliamentary select committee decided in August to leave regulations unchanged.

Some people will be celebrating Guy Fawkes Day, held to commemorate the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605.
