Hi neighbours. Auckland’s Diwali Festival has gone from a two-day event to a three-week celebration due to coronavirus. The Hindu festival of lights is a highlight of Auckland's major events calendar and one of New Zealand's largest cultural festivals. It is traditionally held over two days in Aotea Square, but will now be held from October 27 to November 14 at various community venues.

Pōhutukawa vandalism: Allegations among Karaka residents - was it an inside job?

Reporter Reporter from Auckland Stuff

A series of accusatory hand-written notes have been delivered to residents of Harbourside Drive following Sunday’s vandalism of several trees.

Locals are feeling “absolutely disgusted” at the suggestion that they are behind the incident, which involved a vandal felling eight street pōhutukawa trees with a chainsaw.

Paul and Sue Wilson, who have lived on the road for over 10 years, arrived home on Monday from a trip to Waiheke Island to find a line of felled trees and a curt hand-written note in their letterbox.
