Hi Neighbours, thinking of starting a community fitness group (if there isnt one already) to get to know the community and work on health together. Thinking 6am - 7am 2-3 days a week. This would be FREE and would involve boxfit, stretches, walking and excercises suitable for all ages and abilities. Would anyone be interested in joining or have any other suggestions?
We’ve been woken 3 times this week around 2AM by a circling low flying helicopter. I assume it’s the police. Does anybody know what’s going on?
Meet the man who has considered Auckland Airport his second home for over 20 years.
Twice a week, 86-year-old Les Featherstone takes a taxi to the International Terminal where he volunteers for four-and-a-half hours as an airport ambassador, or Bluecoat.
Twenty-four years is a long time to hold down one job, especially as a volunteer, but Featherstone says signing up was the best thing he's ever done.
In recent times, the airport has taken on a new meaning for him following the death of his wife last month.
Do you plan to volunteer once you retire? What would be your dream role?

Hi neighbours, police's helicopter base has been in Onehunga for a few months now. The helicopters were moved from central Auckland to Auckland Heliport on Miami Parade. The police commissioner says he expected to have half the number of noise complaints due to the location change. Has Onehunga become more noisy? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section!
